Mercury stays in retrograde until the 5th of December. Because Mercury is the planet of thinking and communication, when it’s rotation is backwards, it affects scheduling, judgement, and innovation. Read more about how your sun sign will be affected during Mercury retrograde.
Aries (March 21- April 19): Being quick witted and fast moving, it’s frustrating to be in a rut for Aries. For Aries during this time it’s hard for them to move forward when everything seems to be going back. If you’re not thinking consciously, then your words will come off as hurtful. Be patient, this funk will pass.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Generally a calm and collected sign, Taurus isn’t used to making impulsive decisions. However during this time Taurus won’t think twice about making a decision. There are pros and cons to your actions, you’ll be less mindful of your personal relationships and money but you will be taken out of your comfort zone. Consider whether it’s worth it when it comes to these decisions.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Mercury is Gemini’s ruler, so when it’s in retrograde Gemini’s whole world is off– But luckily due to Gemini being a mutable sign it can make the best out of a bad situation. When you see road blocks these next few weeks, try to attempt to think outside of the box and find another route.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): This is a trying time for Cancers. Cancers will be receiving information (or misinformation) that they will send them into a spiral. Cancer will want to retreat to your own private island. Isolating itself isn’t the answer, it will stop Cancers from fixing problems. Force yourself to take action, face issues head on.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): Being a fixed sign, Leos love being in control and when they’re embarrassed, they get angry. Leo’s will be getting into situations where they will lose control and the spotlight, but they must try to keep their cool. Getting too aggressive will lose acquaintances respect and even friendships.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Virgo is ruled by the planet Mercury, so when it’s in retrograde, everything is off for Virgo. Virgos are heavily dependent on organization, reliability, and logical thinking. When this is all off, there’s not much left to lean on. Leaning on it’s adaptability from being a mutable sign and your practical side from being an earth sign are the only things that are going to keep Virgo sane during retrograde.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): Most Libras tend to think that relationships are the most important thing– So when communication gets skewed it can feel isolating. People from your past will also be brought up again, whether it’s old friends or someone you barely knew. Libras should be committed to finding ways to stay in touch with these people.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Scorpio’s secrets will end up coming out one way or another in the next few weeks. They should be conscious of who they tell it to because they will have no control of what those people will do with the information you give them.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Now is not the time to travel. Expect in one way or another your plans falling through. Whether it’s your car breaking down or people flaking out on you, it will happen during retrograde. You should consider finding your friends that are close to you and spending time with them.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20): Your master planning and ambitions will be on hold these next few weeks. You will have to rely on others, and because you’re a cardinal sign, you’re used to taking the reins and doing everything yourself. Be patient and wait for these weeks to be over, then you’ll be right back on track.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18): When technology fails, it will anger Aquarius. Aquarius is dependent on it to not only stay in contact with others and finding information. In the end this Mercury Retrograde will make you stronger, if you take the time to find alternate ways to stay in contact with others and finding information.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Pisces’ intuition will be clouded during Mercury’s retrograde. Now is the time to fall into daydreams and get into your own head. You’ll find solutions there.
