The planet Mercury controls communication and symbolizes coordination. It controls thought the process, ideas, and sensory information from the conscious to the unconscious sources. It is also associated with water, thus affecting emotions.
When the planet is retrograde, it is orbiting in an opposite direction to other bodies within its system. Mercury goes in retrograde three times a year, for about three weeks at a time. When a planet is retrograde, its functions turn inward. Instead of the planet affecting you on an external level, it affects you on an internal level. It has the power to create several inconvenient situations. It may affect your relationships, disrupting harmony and peace. It may cause communication issues and may bring up unfinished business. You must think carefully before saying what comes to your mind. Instead of feeling anxious and stressed it is better to focus on improving oneself.
