This was an overview of Planet Mercury and how it works according different situations. Now let’s talk about Mercury Retrograde 2020|Effect On Zodiac Signs

What is Mercury Retrograde?

First of all, let me clear you one thing no Planet in the Universe can turn retrograde. However, it’s just an optical illusion that gives us a hint about the planet turning into retrograde.

As we know all the planets revolve around the Sun in the orbit. However, sometimes planets appear to be travelling backwards through the night sky with respect to the zodiac. This is called apparent Retrograde motion.

Three times a year, it seems like Mercury is travelling backwards or its motion is stopped. This period is called as Mercury in motion or simply Mercury Retrograde. Moreover, when Mercury starts to slow down that is period is called as Pre-Retrograde.

During this time, Mercury starts losing its powers which give rise to confusions, delay, frustration. In short, the period of Mercury Retrograde is a very harsh period and you are advised not to take any ventures or think of travelling abroad.
