Mercury retrograde during fall of 2022 is happening in two signs, Libra and Virgo. The official period is from the 9th of September to 2nd of October. But with the shadow periods, 3-weeks and 3 weeks after, the timeframe for the retrograde is a long one.

The first part of the retrograde period, we will be assessing our current contracts, partnerships, deals, relationships. We will be discussing and communicating with these people about what we want, what they want. As well as if the partnership, relationship or deal can continue. What needs to be changed, what needs to be made better for this to move to another level.

Past lovers, partners, agreements can also come back to us for a review = to see if there’s something we still need from them or not. Don’t be surprised if a past employer, business partner, or lover comes back and sends an email, iMessage, or just contacts You in some shape or form. Especially during the first part of the retrograde period (as well as the shadow period 3 weeks before). Especially potent around 1–15th of September.

The period can be summed up as weighing our options, indecision, and multiple proposals on our tables. The back and forth in our minds and thoughts will be felt. Constantly going back to a decision or people changing their minds.

The second part of Mercury retrograde will be spent in the earthly Virgo. From 23rd of September — 2nd of October. This means we will be going deep into details and fixing matters that were not seen to us before regarding:

  • Work
  • Daily routines
  • Health
  • Exercising routines
  • Illnesses
  • Imbalances in our life
  • The people we work with
  • Our work place
  • The people who are lower than us in society or with addictions, imbalances in their lives
  • Arguments, court cases
  • Debt

The period can be summarized as making things better with a critical undertone. So people can be critical towards You and You can also have a tendency to focus on the sometimes not so important
