What Does Mercury Retrograde Mean?
And why does it matter that it's in Gemini? During this mercury retrograde time we have to take into account what the planet Mercury represents. That is thoughts and communication and how it connects. During a retrograde we are in the process of reviewing. When it is in Gemini we are reviewing communication, thoughts, information, and social connections. You can think of the retrograde season as a look back and a reassessment period. And specifically in this one our communication is paramount. The good thing is that Mercury is comfortable in the air element of Gemini.
Mercury Retrograde Starts
Mercury Retrograde in Gemini started on May 29, 2021 and will be completely done by July 7, 2021. Between May 14-29 and June 22 and July 7 it is considered to be in shadow so you may have already gotten a preview of what's to come.
Let's get into the messages.
General Messages for Mercury Retrograde in Gemini
In general you may be tempted to engage in petty arguments over situations that are already over. This temptation to argue is coming from the ego and it is tied to wanting to be right. If you are able to detach and observe you'll see that the situation is over. It is time for change. Arguing only keeps you attached and alone in this. During this mercury retrograde you can become wiser about engaging in dead-end situations. It is the knowledge that the more you engage with said situation it doesn't go anywhere. Sometimes the only way to learn is in solitude.
Messages for the Elements during Mercury Retrograde
During this mercury retrograde in Gemini, both air and earth signs share the task of finding balance in their respective domains. Air signs in their mental activity and earth signs in their physical abundance. The air, fire, and water signs are all coming to the end of story regarding struggle and pain. Let's get into each group's message and then we'll close it with a message for each individual sign.
Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
I see a lot of imbalance between the ideas of giving/taking, and doing/resting. It is due to a lot of mental activity when it comes to these concepts, which can either keep you up late at night or wake you up earlier than intended. I can see that you'd like to figure this out and get a plan. You may find a solution in dividing responsibilities fairly. Whether that's you picking up some work or delegating some work. Whichever way it goes make sure you include yourself in the equation so that it is fair for everyone!
Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
For earth signs I see an opening or at least a need to open up in order to bring balance into a situation. It feels like the imbalance or the need to keep that barrier to close off is coming from ego thoughts. "I must get mine before there is none left." All while you have more than enough. This constrain on generosity isn't helping you and in some cases even making things harder than they should. Ideally you want everyone to have the same amount all across the board but in reality it just looks like you're the selfish person. It's just a matter of either teaching others what you know or simply giving because you realize that you are better off than you thought.
Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
I see fire signs closing a chapter during this period. It looks like taking a relaxed approach due to understanding that there are too many wonderful things that can happen. This mercury retrograde can be a time to drop the burdens and focus on your dreams and all the possibilities. Once you become clear of your burdens and work through releasing them it will open up a whole new chapter for you.
Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
For the water signs this Mercury Retrograde I see you'll be leaving painful situations and leaving them in the past. You'll see no reason to continue talking about them or thinking about them after this retrograde. I also see a bigger trust in your intuitive powers. What was once subtle becomes super clear to you and only you in regards to the connection with your intuition. Just because you can't see movement doesn't mean it's not happening. You might feel like when it comes to work you are all alone or that you only have one stream of income, however, it shows me here that either the right team is approaching soon or you'll discover these others streams in time.

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini by the Signs
Be patient. There is more coming if you keep working on it. You may think somethings are over now, but not so. I'm being shown that more work is what is necessary and to not throw out the baby with the bath water.
Find balance. You may be taken through a loop this season. Not everything is lost although it might feel like it is. You can have security again but pay attention to how you look at things. The glass is always half full and half empty. It is in balance. Are you?
Be grateful. Take a moment to acknowledge everything you have created. Believe it or not you are surrounded by abundance. The dreams you had when you were younger came true and I'm not sure you realized it. You don't have to live off the scraps from the past. As soon as you realize you already got it, you'll open up to new opportunities.
Connect the dots. Notice which situations are over and done with. There have always been people and resources near you that you couldn't access because you are involved in heart-breaking or back stabbing situations. Once you can release that, these people and resources will become available to you.
Take a breather. It shows me that you are overcoming some sort of betrayal or heartache and having some alone time can help you more than you realize. You can continue to pretend like nothing is bothering you and everything is ok but you know the truth. You will benefit from reduced social situations.
Breathe it out. Looks like communication for you will be very challenged. I see either you won't want to open up or other people will act that way towards you. It can be both. Remember you can't control others but you sure can control how you think about a situation and how you respond to it. Drop the worst-case scenarios they don't help.
Enjoy. It's a beautiful thing when you can trust others. Not only are you able to open and express how you feel in a balanced way, but you'll also get better at delegating to those you trust so that you can enjoy the beauty of the world.
It was unavoidable. I see you did your best to avoid some sort of catastrophe. There was nothing you could do to skip this situation but you can take this lesson with you for the future. It didn't happen in vain. I think you will remember this season.
Freedom! Looks like you finally learn the power of your thoughts and how they can trap you or liberate you. I see you being able to change the quality of your thoughts in order to liberate yourself victoriously.
Dream. You'll be reviewing and continuing to engage with your hopes and dreams. I see you are very focused on your goal and you might even look into the Law of Attraction to make them happen. Any troubles with communication during this period will not faze you, other people are having problems communicating too.
You do not have time for this. I see that you will have to deal with a very exciting and unstable character this season. They come in wanting to play with you at the worst possible time. I see that you won't have the emotional energy for this. I see that this character just takes the joke too far.
Good for you! The addictions you've been working to overcome bring you closer to a major relationship that will flow with you and where the exchange is mutual. You are no longer attracted to those that share your addictions.
Whatever you choose is perfect, if you do your own thing know then that is perfect. Otherwise, I hope you enjoyed these messages and that they can help you if you were looking for clarity.
