Mercury enters its Retrograde phase on April 9th joining Venus, Jupiter and Saturn already in Retrograde, and Pluto soon to be joining!
Delays and snafus in all types of communication, technologies and travel are all part of the deal, but as we know, Mercury Retrograde also brings us vital gifts and with so many planets in Retrograde motion, this is undoubtedly a cosmically aligned time of deep review and purification.  
The cosmos is offering us a window to gaze deeply into the Self so we can restructure, reimagine and redefine our Reality and how we operate in it, in a more empowering and authentic way.
Here are the MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights from our beloved featured astrologers sharing their insights on what this time might bring…
Mercury Retrograde expert ROBERT WILKINSON from his Aquarius Papers shares:
“Yes, it’s THAT time again! Mercury is radically slowing down, preparing to go stationary retrograde at 5 Taurus on April 9 at 4:15 pm PDT, 7:15 pm EDT, and 12:15 am BST April 10. This has important implications for all signs…”
“This one will give us multiple angles of understanding about how our past created our present, or how our present will create our future.
“We will see how actions led us to the threshold of new life chapters where something had to be left behind.
“Mercury will show us what we have to prepare for, and why some things must be buried so we may move forward unencumbered by the ghosts of the past…”
“This is an awakening retrograde period that will give us inspired understanding, and allow us to see how our past, present, and future are a continuum of growth into our uniqueness…”
“Look back to see how you’ve cleared the decks for a new life, and do whatever closure rituals you need to do to come to finality about what’s dead and gone….”
“This will be another important retrograde, where the past will be reviewed to see what we said goodbye to or need to say goodbye to in order to open the door to a life renewal.”

The always wise SARAH VARCAS from her Astro-Awakenings.uk.co shares reflections on the other retrogrades happening:
“April 2017 sees an increase in retrograde activity, with roughly half of the month (9th – 15th April  &  20th April – 3rd May) featuring four retrogrades.
“This is something we’ve not seen since September 2016 and is a celestial pattern which invites us to retreat, revisit and reflect.
“The month begins with Venus retrograde in Aries (since 4th March) and Jupiter still retrograde in Libra (since 6th Feb).
“Relationships are an on-going focus, including those with the wider world which may demand bold compassion in defiance of the egoic mind that divides into friend and foe.
“As Venus retrogrades into Pisces on 3rd April, personal need is eclipsed by the dissolution of boundaries that separate me from you and them from us…”
“Venus invites us to soften around the edges of individuality and separation, to embrace our own divinity and prepare to use it as a balm upon the world once she turns direct on 15th April.
“Only through right-relationship with oneself can we forge constructive connections with others, providing all parties a voice whilst allowing for nuances of difference and self-determination…”
“Jupiter retrograde reminds us no external voyage of discovery – no matter how enlightening – can match the wisdom won when we journey to our centre to discover who we are.
If we cannot know ourselves in the deepest sense there is no one else who will solve our problems or heal our wounds.
“The usual enthusiasm and outward thrust of Jupiterian energy is turned inward now…”
“This self-enquiry may be uncomfortable at times, for whilst awakening is intrinsic to our nature, it is not just a beautiful grace.
“It also holds us accountable and requires an inner quest which strips away the pretense of false selves to reveal the sacred core shared by all.”
On Saturn which went Retrograde in Sagittarius on April 5th, SARAH VARCAS continues:
“In Sagittarius, Saturn requires a broader view of our lives, beyond our personal present…”
“It demands…that we acknowledge and take responsibility for all we have been and all we have done, welcoming their current ripples of consequence as great teachers bestowing precious wisdom…”
“Squaring both Chiron and Venus in Pisces as it turns retrograde, Saturn reminds us that old wounds sustained when we were most vulnerable can be the toughest to heal.
“We may harden against life, against others, against our self and our own feelings, all in an attempt to stay the course without enduring further pain.
“In the coming months we have the chance to reconcile the consequences of betrayal by others, lost love and the many disappointments that can make life hard to bear.
“But in doing so we may have to face the hardest truth, that betrayal of the self inflicts the greatest wound of all.
“As such, it comes in many forms, from a refusal to recognize our inherent worth – instead remaining locked in a self-critical and punishing mindset – to avoidance of fulfilling our potential…”
“Saturn retrograde demands sustained and honest enquiry…For only through such understanding can we chart the course forward into the realization of deeper, more resonant desires.”

And PAT LILES  from The Power Path.com shares:
“We are reassessing, regrouping, recoiling, reinventing, rethinking, remembering, repairing when there is so much retrograde power in the air.
“The past spiraling back to us often resurfaces and rekindles old lessons and memories.
“We remember why we want to be or don’t want to be on a path or in a relationship or job. It’s a time of reflection.
“Nonetheless, The Sun still reigns in optimistic, freedom-loving Aries so close to dwarf planet Eris who is not afraid of discord and confrontation to facilitate justice and clearing the way for truth…”
“The Full Moon week of April 7-13 will see the mighty Sun aspect all the planets in the Grand Square (Jupiter, Pluto, Uranus, Vesta) hugely activating these forces.
“It’s Saturn in Sagittarius sitting at the center of the galaxy that is the mediating factor for all the dynamic stress and growth.
“Saturn in Sag says, ‘look to the bigger picture, longer horizon and set good boundaries, honor your limits, and tighten up your discipline’.
“Saturn can help channel all the heat and fire from Sun-Eris-Uranus-a truly volatile possè.
“The pressure is here to take your life to a higher frequency and there is always help along the way ~ that’s how the universe rolls.”
