Today at roughly 8 am (mtn time) this morning Mercury turned direct motion! I didn't have too many struggles during this retrograde (in Pisces) how about you?
The planet doesn't actually go backwards or forward. It simply slows or stops and when that happens, and earth continues to move at its normal pace, it appears to move backwards from earth.
During a retrograde of any planet it is a great time to review your life and things happening in your life and when it goes direct you will start to move forward with the knowledge you got while it was retrograde!
Mercury is considered an inner planet which means it moves faster than some of the heavy weights so the review phase is a lot shorter than an outer planet. Mercury does a retrograde 3 or 4 times a year!
Many people I know that I have explained Mercury and it's effects always call me and say "Is Mercury retrograde right now?" Even the ones who were skeptical!
I hope that this direct motion works well for you! All the planets that have been in retrograde for weeks or months are all jumping on the direct motion and making life a little bit lighter!
