The Mercury retrograde is set to occur three times in 2023: from 21st April to 14th May, then again from 23rd August to 14th September, and finally from 13th December until the end of 2023.
This astrological phenomenon marks a period in which Mercury travels more slowly around the sun than the Earth does, creating the illusion that the planet is moving backwards. Whether the Mercury retrograde falls within your horoscope season or not, it can cause varying effects for different people. In astrology, Mercury is known to represent communication, travel and technology, so expect some mishaps when this planet is in flux.
