Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn, 14 January – 3 February 2022

Mercury goes retrograde three to four times a year. This is his guidance to reflect on what and how we communicate, learn, socialize, and experience. He will be in sidereal Capricorn from 14 January to 3 February 2022, for the first of four retrograde periods this year.

Capricorn is the feminine side of Saturn, which connects us to our patience, ambition, routines, and hard work. Saturn has been transiting there since January 2020 and will be until April 2022; the guidance is strong

Saturn and Mercury are neutral with each other, but Mercury will be guiding us to reflect on our efforts regarding the structures of what he rules, i.e., hobbies, social media, basic learning/ learning something new, and social interactions.

Look at Mercury retrograde from your sidereal ascendant and moon sign to understand how it will affect you. One thing to consider is doing remedies for the throat chakra, which Mercury also rules.
