What is happening when Mercury goes retrograde?
Mercury Retrograde motion

"Mercury moves faster than the Earth as they orbit around our sun, and — unlike other planets — the speed of its orbit often changing. When Mercury is at its furthest point from the sun, it's also at the slowest point in its orbit, giving the earth a chance to catch up. This is where we spend the next three weeks watching the planetary dance as Mercury turning retrograde, moving in sync with the Earth." source
