Understanding Transits and Retrogrades of Mercury

As one can easily tell from the chart above, Mercury Stations Retrograde approximately three times per year, transiting in retrograde motion for about 21 days. Because of Mercury's proximity to the Sun, Mercury's transit by sign is not more than one sign from the sign the Sun is transiting at any given time. The in retrograde motion is an illusion of the planet moving backwards based on the placement of the planet in relation to the Earth and the Sun. When Mercury is done transiting in retrograde motion, it will station briefly then resume the transit in direct motion.

To adjust the times for your timezone, add or subtract the number of hours your timezone is from 0 UT. If you live in the western hemisphere (mostly the Americas) you would subtract the number of hours from the time shown on the table. Most of the eastern hemisphere will add hours to the time shown in the table.
