Until April 25: 4 Things Not To Do While Mercury Is Retrograde

There are numerous astrological phenomena, but none of them have as negative a reputation as Mercury retrograde. What exactly is that? At certain times, the speed at which Mercury orbits decreases, and from Earth, it appears as if the planet is moving backward. In 2024, the celestial event will occur three more times: from April 2nd to April 25th, from August 5th to August 28th, and from November 26th to December 15th.

What influence does Mercury retrograde have?

Although Mercury retrograde is just an optical illusion, it is said to have a powerful effect on astrology. Unfortunately not a positive one, but a negative one. If Mercury is retrograde, it should primarily affect our minds, our communication, and our further development. In addition, the phenomenon is often associated with the fact that we are more unlucky than usual. Astrologers even advise against traveling and buying new technical devices during the affected periods – crazy, right? Whether you stick to it is of course up to you. However, there are a few things in your everyday life that you should avoid doing when Mercury is moving backward…

#1 Start unnecessary discussions

The fact that Mercury retrograde hurts our communication and also makes us easily irritable naturally has one main effect: discussions and arguments arise much more easily, which puts a strain on our interpersonal relationships. To counteract this as best as possible, you should now pay particular attention to your expression and avoid impulsive reactions.

#2 Make hasty decisions

Speaking of impulsivity: those who act based on emotion often make decisions that are not properly thought through. Especially during the time of Mercury retrograde, it quickly happens that, out of an argument or a whim, we say or do things that we don’t mean and that completely throws our lives into chaos. So think twice (or better three times) about decisions during this time.

#3 Take exams

According to astrology, Mercury retrograde also has a major influence on our analytical thinking skills. So it may well be that you don’t perform as well as you are capable of during the event. And that means? Important exams are a bad idea during this time. If you have the opportunity to reschedule such appointments, you will be better off. If that doesn’t work, you have to prepare well – and keep your fingers crossed.

#4 Putting pressure on yourself

The most important thing to conclude: The celestial event can make us generally feel restless and sleep worse. If we then experience a streak of bad luck, we quickly start to doubt ourselves. But that’s exactly what you shouldn’t do while Mercury is retrograde! In the end, these negative thoughts only drag you down and make everything worse.
