While 2021 promises to be more than another innovative and shock factor year that affects Changing Global Truth across the board, we have plenty more of continuing to Awakening the Unexpected energy that distinctly marked 2020 as clearly foretold. If the memo of Becoming Friends With Simplification was not already answered to over the previous year, one is not going to like the repeated calls than 2021 will be undeniably still making to do so.
2021 will be a year where -if one is not in full respect of honoring Mercury Retrograde and become acutely aware to when it is in affect- people will be challenged by change and those truly unprepared to step back in reflection, will only work with turbulent energy they otherwise will have wished they avoided.
As we look to our regular Mercury Retrograde (MRx) passages (which always occur about three times during any given year) we have additional timeframes to be acutely aware of due to other inner planet cycles of reflection that will intertwine along with them.
Understanding Mercury Retrograde and what it actually is meant to positively do for anyone is wise timing is everything wisdom to always take into consideration for our planning and scheduling needs. These recurring astrological cycles are mistakenly overly associated with fear and frustration, which absolutely is not the reaction we are ever meant to have with them.
Mercury Retrograde is always first and foremost: A Cycle of Reflection.
Read that last statement again.
The only reasons Mercury Retrogrades “trip up” anyone is that:
One: most people are unaware it is in affect because they have never been introduced to the value of astrology, and naively choose to make initiations for intended long term success during them.
Two: those who are aware of it are fooled into believing they should fear it every time is comes back around because they are simply misinformed.
If you know what not to do, and most importantly, what you absolutely can do under these reflective, recharging, reassessment and ultimate “time out” periods: you will always be in the energetic flow of Mastering Mercury Retrograde.
Before we get into when all of 2021’s cycle of reflection periods will urgently ask us to have the heads up in our calendars, let’s give you some astrological tips and tools to implement during any of them.
Why Are We Not Favored To Move Forward Under MRx?
Mercury is our Messenger planet from above that guides all communications, thinking, mentality, movement, electronics, transportation, travel, changes, perceptions, adaptability and all exchanges of information that occur down here below.
When in Retrograde -due to the backtracking energy that is cast off from Mercury- all of the matters it watches over do not function nor move forward optimally. Precisely why, anyone is well advised to utilize these periods of time for pause, redoing, and only focus upon reworking what already exists.
Human error is always highest under Mercury Retrograde than any other time of the year. Naturally, forward thinking and planting for future success under this time is equally not well supported.
Therefore, hold off on important decisions such as: starting a business, signing contracts, launching a product, getting married, buying a new car, engaging in any kind of new relationship, purchasing new technology, or buying a new home. None of these initiating actions will turn out well for the long-term, and if implemented under MRx, it is an astrological guarantee they are energetically tied up in faulty foundations that never have the genuine ability to sustain themselves for success.
What Are We Favored To Do With Success Under MRx?
Taking the first rule of thumb that Mercury Retrograde is a cycle of reflection, we are promised to flow with this reassessment time when we honor staying in this exact frame of mind. By only placing our attention upon what already exists, and choosing to wait and see about the future, our personal mastery of this cycle absolutely unfolds.
Getting out our “RE” vocabulary is one of the best ways we can discover ease and peace of mind.
Rerouting, reconnecting, reconsidering, recharging, resting, relaxing, reorganizing, researching, retreating, remembering, replanning, reframing, rescheduling, rekindling, repairing and replacing are all wonderful ways to reap the rewards of what this cycle of reflection is absolutely all about.
Mercury Retrograde is a marvelous time to work with: unfinished projects, revisiting existing creative outlets, reconnecting with old friends/former associates, reassessing existing business plans, practicing the pause, expecting rescheduling of plans, anticipating delays and set backs, having backup plans ready to go, replacing objects in need of repair (yet make sure these are done correctly), doing research, retreating away from the world, and above all, remembering to take a silent listen for oneself (extra meditation, journaling and yoga time please!).
Mercury Retrogrades & YOU!
For anyone’s individual experience, taking a look at your Personal Forecast is always extremely favored to know the precise and specific areas of your life that each one will be seeking your reflective focus within.
As everyone collectively experiences any and all MRx cycles, each one is energetically different from the last, making no two MRxs exactly alike. While the same rules of thumb will always apply, the pulse will always cast off unique affects being Mercury is in another zodiac sign each time. Equally, the other positioning of the planets above any MRx also will relate to, also are never in the same configurations.
So, where is change and necessary reflection asking for your attention during any given year, and especially this one? Is it your income, lifestyle and vocation? Or your home/family life, wealth, and inner healing? Or how you approach your life, heart space and beliefs? What about your communication skills, relationships and hopes for the future?
2021 Mercury Retrogrades
Wherever Mercury Retrograde lands in your life or business, know this: it is always time to sharpen the saw within it. The value of astrology is, you always have a precise map and blueprint to help personally guide you through any of them.
Each Mercury Retrograde lasts for approximately 21 days (3 weeks). All have an Approach period, (date when Mercury crosses over the degree point it will fully Retrograde back to) and a Shadow period, (date when Mercury moving forward crosses back over the degree point it began to Retrograde upon). The Approach alerts us to what MRx reflections and matters are on the way to be resolved, while the Shadow allows us to tie up the loose ends and recorrect any natural errors that occur during the Retrograde itself.

The Intensity of 2021: The Need for Maintaining Mental Health
What we astrologically notice here is Mercury, when asking for our reflection, will only be reviewing and redoing within the very signs that are governed by the element of air. Air guides the intellectual nature, mental state/frame of mind, ideas, information and all matters upon the planet that of course, move via air itself. Mercury as the natural way shower guide of our 5 Universal Year, spends 27 weeks in the elemental energy of Air during 2021, which just over half of it’s 52 week span. Once again, this points us to how very much well oiling our mental planes and intellectual means must absolutely be more than properly prepared for.
2021 favors the mind can be calmed by the choice of remembering how to properly BREATHE.

In closing, there is no question we have the greatest responsibility on our human hands we have ever had in mankind’s existence to remain accountable to this year in full awareness to be more than mindful of our timing is everything scope.
Success can be absolutely ours, yet it is the deeper understanding that in such a fast paced year overall, simplification and moderation nevertheless will continue to be an important part of our “new norm.” If any HEART upon this EARTH is not willing to accept profound global change in 2021, they will not find they are going to have any kind of seamless time in how the energetic pace and pulse of the year will undoubtedly unfold.
