Celebration is in order… Mercury retrograde has ended!
Whether you’re a moon follower, astrologer or just normal millennial who’s got quite into that side of things, you’ll likely have been attributing all that’s mental in the world with the position of the planets this month.
Famously chaos-causing, Mercury has been in retrograde since 5 March — meaning its the closest planet to the sun, and appears to move from east to west, so backwards, across the sky.
But thankfully we’ve made it! Mercury turned direct at 1.59pm on Thursday 28th March… Back pats all round.

MERCURY DIRECT – but still slow and still with Neptune so elevate those dreams and then them into magic! ✨ or “your intuition is your superpower.” . . #mercurydirect #stationing mercuryretrograde #mercury #mermaid #mercuryneptune #kindness #patience #cultivatewhatmatters #cultivatekindness #astrology #astrologyposts #pisces #gentle #kindnessismagic #kindnessisfree
So if it being in retrograde is reason to freak out, what’s the deal with it being direct a.k.a prograde?
Well, firstly it’s the name for when Mercury travels with the flow of the other planets; forwards, from west to east.
And with regards to how it makes people feel, you won’t hear it discussed much — intensely unlike retrograde! It’s said we talk far more when we’re having a tricky time and, given things should go pretty swimmingly, there’s simply less conversation fodder.
How can we make the most of it?
There’s no need to do anything special but just recognise (and hopefully appreciate) it, like that patch during a hormone or period cycle when you’re on easy street. Enjoy it and reap the benefits on your communication, connections, work, creativity, travel and productivity.
While it’s recommended not to embark on important decision-making processes during retrograde, this is when our brains should behave and be able to cope with whatever we throw at them. Within reason, of course.
