How a Mercury Retrograde Affects your Sign
- Aries: Frustration and annoyance are what you can look forward to, as you tend to want things to work the right way the first time, not to mention your need to always want to move forward! The slowed and reversed energies of the retrograde drive you insane during this time. Also, be mindful of your words and how you say them, but at the same time, be sure to listen; you might be surprised!
- Taurus: Take time to really put things together in your mind. You're already an unhurried sign, but the extra slowness caused by the retrograde causes you to be slower than normal, mentally. Be sure to keep an extra eye on your finances and banking during this time. Prepare for growth!
- Gemini: Ruled by Mercury itself, be prepared to receive the worst problems with communication! Expect many miscommunications, dropped calls, no calls, or too many calls; the same expectation applies to mail. Your articulation will become lessened, as well. On the plus side, Gemini have been known to reconnect with old connections during this time!
- Cancer: Expect your main problems to come from the homefront. Stubborn children, burned food, dying plants, uncomfortable home, broken pipes, and more. Use this time to complete repair projects around the home to keep yourself occupied; you might just need those extra skills before this is all over!
- Leo: Hold off on major investments, selling, or buying; we know you love money and spending it! For now, however, I insist that you use this time to reevaluate your spending limit, as well as your income and investment portfolios. Early Leos, use your advisory skills to help friends and coworkers.
- Virgo: Expect everything to go against your plans or scheduling; I know this is hard to do, but to reduce personal stress and active mental alertness, be flexible during this time. Expect things at work to go wrong for you in the terms of broken equipment, and crankiness from those around you. Be absolutely sure to double-check your own work during this time.
- Libra: Do not alter your appearance during this time, as indecision is your personal downfall during a retrograde; as soon as it's over, you'll wish you could undo what you've done! Libra is out of balance, and thus, so is your personal beauty, grace, and charm. No worries, just relax during this time!
- Scorpio: Avoid starting or heavily changing/maintaining a relationship at this time. Like normal, your words do have some bite to them, but now, you may accidentally say the wrong things or secrets may seep out! Be weary of your own tongue during this time. Start a diary if you need to.
- Sagittarius: Do not go exploring during this time! I know this feels like it could kill you, but the waiting time during delays and breakdowns will only be worse for you. Reschedule if you can. Instead, focus on local trips or errands. Remember your patience and sense of humor in these dark times.
- Capricorn: You may be in the market for a new place of residence; this is the worst thing for you at this time. You can also expect paperwork problems, packing problems, and problems with movers. Take this time to reunite with family or vacation at home!
- Aquarius: Friendships are at risk for you at this moment, as the retrograde makes it hard for them to understand you and see that you mean no harm. During this time, it's safest to keep your closest and most understanding friends near you; do not try to make new friends right now.
- Pisces: Foggy thoughts, daydreams, increased imagination, and escapism are huge stoppers for you at this time, because Mercury, the planet of logic is reversed, granting you more creativity than normal! Use this time for creative activities like dancing, music, or art!
