Mercury will station retrograde in Gemini on May 29, 2021 at 06:34PM EDST and will remain so until June 22, 2021 at 6:00PM EDST! This packs a punch beause Mercury also rules Gemini!

This cycle allows us to balance our past and future, our inner and outer, our established with whay we envision. Take time to look at the bigger picture in your life and also how you priorities and values can serve others and noble causes.
Pluto in Capricorn Stationed Retrograde
Pluto stationed retrograde in Capricorn on April 27, 2021 and will remain so until to October 6, 2021. Pluto is the planet of life, death re-birthing and tramsformations of all types. As it retrogrades each year for a few months, it allows us to employ history as our teacher. Often times in history, that which is nearly forgotten, reveal themselves.
Scholars can be intensely busy in this cycle. Do diligent research on fulfilling your deepest needs and desires. Take time to also take a look at the bigger picture of your community, country, the Earth and the cosmic messages that come through! Take time to ponder!
