May 2022 Mercury retrograde special for Virgo or Virgo rising.
As Mercury, Your ruler, grinds to a halt, and then goes retrograde on the 10th., quite likely you will be feeling low on energy. As he slows, and stops, so do you. Expect and allow. His is a much needed time of contemplation and revision. It is time to rethink your work world. It could be that you are stopped in your tracks by some communication, or information comes to you that makes you realize your status is not what it was.
Traditionally, we curse Mercury retrogrades as a time of hold ups, and breakages. And Yes, this can happen; But only if you’re not listening, and only if you are not doing as Nature intended. Taking time out to rethink, refine, and reorder your life and your world. It all depends on our perspective, and how we choose to interact with the energetic flow.
Now is not the rime to take on new projects Mercury, or any planet retrograde asks us to go back over in some way. And with Mercury governing our speaking and thinking functions, it is the arena of either how, or what we think that requires our attention. And this is emphasized by his starting his retrograde in Gemini, his home sign. There is something here that requires a rethink, a re-visioning, and it is very much about what it is that you believe regarding your place at work or out in the world… This is a time to listen, and consider all options, perhaps a different approach to work, or a way of streamlining your system. There is much to be learnt, and for you Virgo, as Mercury passes back into Taurus on the 24th, the emphasis of your rethink turns to your belief system; your understanding of how the world works. Consider yourself an arrow in flight seeing the bigger picture from above.
Any lasting decisions are best left until Mercury is out of shadow mid June… meanwhile, you have the opportunity to research all the options.
And the good news is… this is the week, Jupiter, Lord of expansion changes signs, heading into your to your area of shared property and values bringing opportunities galore… And where he will be sitting (with a brief retrograde into Pisces), for the next year… . In rare cases this can mean an inheritance, but is more likely to result in a strengthening of those already existing deep and significant bonds with other.
