When a planet goes retrograde, it appears to move backwards in the sky. Each planet has a list of themes it controls or represents and during Retrogrades, the themes are magnified. Mercury is the planet of communication, travel, technology and exchange of information and these things go out of the window with Mercury in Retrograde. Sounds awful, right? Well, this might just be the worst Mercury Retrograde you’ve ever had.
