What does Mercury Retrograde mean?
As the name suggests, retrograde is when a planet appears to go backward in its orbit, as viewed from Earth. Astronomers refer to this as “apparent retrograde motion.” The term retrograde comes from the Latin word” retrogradus”, which literally means “backward step.”
Astrologers believe that the Moon, stars, planets, and Sun affect happenings here on Earth and that each planet in our Solar System rules a different aspect of life. Like the Greek messenger god it was named for, Mercury is said to govern transportation and communication. Those who dread Mercury’s retrograde motion say that, when the planet travels backward, its power to positively influence these domains are stifled, leading to chaos.
To help to ease this transition, we have created a collection of crystals for rituals of empowerment with “energy focusing stones.”
