A Mercury Return in astrology is when the moment that transiting Mercury is exactly conjunct the position of Mercury in the natal chart. This occurs about four times a year for an individual or approximately every 88 days. The Mercury return horoscope is concerned with the processes of learning and thinking during the period in question, i.e. all Mercurial themes. Mercury Returns bring vital information that you want or need, as wel as new ideas, greater focus, and meetings with important people. It is a good time for study, reading books, writing of all kinds, and letting one’s thoughts be known, thus speaking one’s mind.
As Mercury rules mental matters, communication and movement, it will accentuate whatever meaning and aspects Mercury already has in the natal chart.

Mercury here may be called a Jack Of All , Multi-Tasker or Dilettante, because it promotes happy dabbling in many areas. This Mercury always has a new idea, thought, word, or fascination to share, but can prefer to skim the surface to plunging the depths of a topic or be two-faced or whimsical.
