We’ve all heard a lot about Mercury Retrograde phases and the effects it brings to our lives. But you don’t have to be scared, actually, this stage can be very good for you if you know how to take advantage of it in the best possible way.
WHAT IS RETROGRADE MERCURY?
First of all, for those who do not know about it, we explain that it is a planetary phase in which (every year) Mercury retrogrades 3 or 4 times and does so over a period of 3 weeks (in each retrograde).
This 2021 will be three times and two have already passed, the first in February-March, the second in June-July and the third will be from October 13 to November 3 in the sign of Scorpio.
AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR RETROGRADE MERCURY TO FALL ON TUESDAY 13?
We must first begin by explaining why Tuesday the 13th is considered to be ‘bad luck’. And the answer is that, since ancient times, this day is known by Christians as a ‘bad omen’ because there were 13 attendees at the Last Supper of Jesus Christ: twelve apostles and Jesus himself, considering Judas the number 13 and traitor.
And, according to the Jewish Kabbalah, there were also 13 evil spirits and it was in chapter 13 of Revelation where the ‘antichrist’ arrived.
On the other hand, the word Tuesday refers to the planet Mars, which since the time of the Middle Ages has been linked to the God of War and was called ‘the little malefic’. Therefore, this day has been related to the red planet of destruction, war and violence.
In order not to lose the degree of difficulty that this year 2021 has had, during this period we will have to take into account that we will have a full moon and Mars also Retrograde (both with somewhat difficult aspects with other planets, so we will have to prepare to deal with all this at the same time, with great strength).

Mercury is the planet of communication, contracts, agreements, trade, sales, knowledge, intelligence, thought, studies, siblings, transportation, removals, short trips, among others. It also governs some organs of the body such as the lungs, bronchi, arms, shoulders, and everything that we have in pairs, this list includes the issues in which you have to pay special attention, as they are the ones that could be affected if not you take care of them.

Instead, this phase is conducive to REVIEW all verbs that start with ‘RE’ (such as remember, review, renounce, recap, receive, restart, remove, reduce, repair, etc).
If you have to do any procedure, try to review your entire process carefully and take into account that you may have to repeat it because the first time it has not turned out well.
We are also going to give you a list of suggestions that will avoid big headaches:
- Make a backup of your computer, cell phone or any other file that is important.
- Carefully review emails or conversations before sending them, to avoid misunderstandings or mistakes.
- Some people or situations from the past may come back to give us the opportunity to return to them, or to make a final closure.
- There is difficulty in learning so you should prevent if you are going to take an exam.
- If you have to sign a contract, review it several times, although it would be best to postpone signing until the retrograde is over.
All these issues are those that can be affected and we must take into account that, since Mercury is in Scorpio, we will do more in-depth analysis and change our scale of priorities, we will review our ‘inner self’ and we will try to heal those things that still hurt us.
