First Mercury Retrograde of 2016

You may have heard the expression, “Oh, no – Mercury is about to go retrograde again!” You may have wondered what they were talking about. Of all planetary aspects, this one seems to garner the most attention from the public.

Mercury Retrograde is from January 5th till January 25th

When Mercury retrogrades, think of it as an instant signal that the wind is changing direction. Most people fear change and therefore this causes a lot of anxiety among those who follow astrology.

To break this down simply Mercury rules all types of communication, including listening, speaking, learning, reading, editing, researching, negotiating, selling, and buying. Mercury also rules all formal contracts and agreements, as well as important documents such as book manuscripts or term papers, agreements, deeds, contracts, leases, wills, and so forth.

Included under this planet’s domain are all types of code, including computer codes, as well as transportation, shipping, and travel. When this planet retrogrades, these areas tend to get a bit jumbled.

When a planet retrogrades it is in a resting or sleeping state. So many of the things that it governs goes without supervision.

The best thing for you to do first off is not be overly concerned. The earth will continue to go around and for a few weeks it is a time for you to contemplate anything that you have been thinking about doing and take a break from the pressures of life.

This can be a good time in your life.  Life has to continue no matter what, this is an opportunity to think a little more carefully and slowly before you take action. Most things can wait a little bit and that’s the best way to approach a Mercury Retrograde. This dormant time gives you great opportunity to really evaluate things that you are considering doing. So this is one of the ways that this astrological time can help you.

It is also a good time to clean out file cabinets and closets. Release what is not needed in your life and make way for the new.

Many blessings,
Cherokee Billie

  1. Thank you. This makes me feel much better about the next few weeks. I’m always nervous about Mercury going in to retrgrade.

    • I’m glad that I made you feel better about this. I believe that no matter what is happening it is for our best good if we use the time to go inside and think about life or as I suggest clean out things and get rid of the old. Much better than feeling doom and gloom. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie ❤

  2. Good reminders mercury retrograde thanks Billie

    wow…..I am going to take a big chill pill and get through this one without issues, I hope. I am trying so hard to be calm and focused and peaceful…..walk thru the storms….without faltering. No need for too much chaos……tiptoe instead of tromp…..whisper instead of speak too loudly… love and smile more! Thanks as always, Billie! What would I know without you??? I am blessed with you and blessings upon you! Linda

    • You have the right attitude and that’s what matters. Definitely taking a chill pill and reflect upon things this month. It really is a time to step back a bit and analyze what we really need. It’s far better than being in a panic. I’m glad that I’m able to help and I appreciate your taking the time to read what I write. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie ❤

  4. In Norway, we use the expression “Mother Hubro” to describe a wise, elderly woman. “Mother Owl”, basically…. so, why isn’t your name in the dictionary, Billie? 🙂

  5. Taking it really slowly today. You can usually feel the energy shift leading up to the retrograde. I have Mercury retrograde so sometimes during this transit if I don’t fight it, it feels a lot like coming home.

    • Sounds like you understand how mercury retrograde affects you and you have learned what to do during these times. Good going! Take this as a time of rest and recovery. Thank you for your comment. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie

  6. I never understood Mercury retrograde, thanks for explaining it so that the average reader understands it. Now I know what I need to do or not do, until the 25h of Jan 2016. Bless you and your readers

    • I appreciate your comment Jackie. I’m glad that I made things clear for you and you know what to do now. Things will improve after the 25th.. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
