Mercury retrograde is happening right now — and not only does that mean Mercury zooming past the Earth, but you may feel that your life is off-kilter, and it may affect your love life, too — especially when it comes to communication. The current Mercury retrograde began on March 22 and will end on April 15. So, the good news is, it’s not forever, and it’s also manageable as long as you understand it and its potential influence on your life. After all, aside from feeling a bit unbalanced, Mercury retrograde is also a great time to date and connect, or reconnect with a current partner, and there are plenty of dates to bring you closer during Mercury retrograde.
No matter what stage of dating you are in — going on first dates, fiftieth dates, or more — Mercury retrograde is the time to keep going on those dates. In fact, Linda Joyce, Relationship Expert and Astrologer, tells Bustle it's the perfect time to reconnect with someone you may have gone a date with in the past if you've been thinking about them lately.
