​For most, the term Mercury Retrograde means a series of unfortunate incidents—simply put, a case bad luck. But what is this phenomenon, really?

​Three times in a year, the planet Mercury slows down its rotation around the Sun and gives the illusion of moving backwards, instead of forwards. The phenomenon is known as Mercury Retrograde.

​In 2022, Mercury Retrograde came into effect from May 10 to June 3, 2022. It is currently in effect from September 9 to October 2, 2022 and will be back again on December 29, 2022 till January 18, 2023.

​According to sun sign astrology, the planet Mercury rules communication, mental abilities, and intelligence.

​It is assumed that during Mercury Retrograde, there will be high chances of rumours and gossip. Technology may also often fail you.

​ Slowing down in life and taking it easy is often prescribed during Mercury Retrograde.

​In the same vein, you can also defer initiating big projects till after Mercury Retrograde for better chances of success.
