Psychic Guidelines For Mercury Retrograde

FREE psychic reading at, Click Here NOW!!!Many people are familiar with the astrological transit known as Mercury Retrograde, which occurs three or four times a year, and how it affects our lives with communication mishaps, technological glitches and misunderstandings.

What is less well known is how it affects psychic reading. Over the years, I have noticed the influence of this astroligical aspect in many of my psychic readings during retrogrades. Since we are currently in the midst of another Mercury Retrograde, I thought it might be a good time to explore this phenomenon in more detail.

If you are unfamiliar, Mercury Retrograde is an astrological phenomenon that occurs when the planet Mercury appears to be moving backwards in space. This is actually an optical illusion caused by the Earth’s orbit overtaking Mercury’s closer orbit to the Sun.

We are currently halfway through the first Mercury retrograde for this year, which will last until April 25. The next two retrogrades for 2024 will be August 4 to August 28 and November 25 to December 15.

In astrology, Mercury is the planetary ruler of communication, travel, and information processing. So, when Mercury is retrograde, these areas of our lives tend to be most affected. People often report experiencing miscommunication, travel delays, and technical problems during Mercury retrograde. During this time, you may also feel that your life is on hold or that your goals and plans are not progressing.

How Mercury Retrograde Affects Psychic Readings

I have found that Mercury retrograde tends to affect psychic readings in the following ways:

Communication issues: Since Mercury is associated with communication, Mercury retrograde can affect the clarity and effectiveness of communication between the psychic and the client. This could potentially lead to misunderstandings or misinterpretations of the messages being conveyed.

Technology interferences: For psychics like me who rely on technology to conduct readings (e.g., phone, online chat, or video calls), Mercury retrograde can cause technical difficulties that could disrupt sessions or make it difficult to connect with clients.

Forecast pause: Energetically, Mercury retrograde is a time for reflection, review, and revisiting past issues rather than starting new ventures or setting new goals. Psychic readings during this time may therefore focus more on resolving past issues or understanding current situations rather than revealing predictions about the future.

Deeper introspection: While it is not the best time for predictions and forecasts, the introspective nature of Mercury retrograde can actually deepen the client’s personal reflection and insight, as the energies during this time encourage them to look inward and re-evaluate situations. This can make readings during Mercury retrograde particularly profound or insightful for resolving lingering issues or getting unstuck.

Increased sensitivity: The period of Mercury retrograde is also a time of heightened sensitivity to energies, which could either enhance the psychic’s ability to connect with spirit and energies or, conversely, make it more difficult to navigate these energies effectively. Therefore, it is important for psychic readers to be aware of how they may be personally affected by retrograde energies in order to provide the best possible readings to their clients.

This phenomenon is one of the few that affects everyone in a fairly uniform way, and its effects are always obvious. Once you begin to pay attention to how events in your life change during these phases, you will soon see how important it is to take note of them ~ Susan Miller

The Do’s And Don’ts Of Mercury Retrograde

While it’s easy to focus on the challenges and problems this time of year can bring, Mercury Retrograde also offers a unique opportunity for personal growth, self-reflection, and reassessment. Here are some recommendations for making the most of this time:

Consider your place in the universe: This is an excellent time to reflect on your current life situation. Think about your personal relationships, your career, and other important areas of your life. Ask yourself, “Am I truly happy?” If there’s even a hint of doubt in your answer, take this as a nudge to consider making changes. Mercury retrograde offers a pause to evaluate and refocus your goals and desires.

Take a breather: Rushing through life can sometimes prevent us from seeing what really matters. Use this time as an invitation to slow down. Think deeply about what needs to be improved and how to make it happen. This is not a time for rash decisions, but for thoughtful consideration and planning.

Look back to move forward: Our past experiences shape us, but they can also hold clues to our current state of mind and challenges. If certain memories keep coming up during Mercury retrograde, there’s probably a reason for it. Delve into these memories, examine the feelings associated with them, and learn from them. This process can provide clarity and closure, allowing you to move forward with a lighter heart.

Don’t make major commitments: Signing important documents or making major financial decisions, such as buying a house or expensive electronics, is generally not advisable during Mercury Retrograde. Misunderstandings and overlooked details are more common now, so it’s wise to postpone these actions if possible.

Don’t rush anything: In a world that values speed and efficiency, Mercury Retrograde asks us to take a step back. Avoid the urge to push through obstacles or force solutions. Adopting a “go with the flow” attitude is not only recommended, but may be necessary as the universe realigns itself. Use this slower pace to make mindful decisions and actions.

Don’t be too hard on yourself: This time can bring uncertainties and shifts that may feel unsettling. Remember that it’s a time of reflection and realignment, not just for you, but for everyone. Be gentle with yourself and others as you navigate these changes.

Mercury retrograde, with all its nuances, does not have to be a time of anxiety. Instead, it can be a time of growth, insight, and transformation if approached with mindfulness and patience. By honoring these do’s and don’ts, you can harness the energies of this time for personal development and smoother transitions.
