HOROSCOPE SIGNS: How Mercury Retrograde Will Affect You

May 10th to June 2nd 

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Beware of getting lost in your own mind. Mercury retrograde is likely to make you angry, making you more prone to gossiping or word vomit, so it’s important that you say what you mean. Aries should avoid trying to take on any new skills or conquering any new learning lessons, only during this time. 

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Keep a careful eye on your bank account because Mercury retrograde is causing a little money mischief. It’s a good idea to avoid spending too much of your birthday money on things you think you want in the moment because you might feel differently later on. Also, Taureans might start viewing themselves in a more negative light during this time. So, keep affirmations close by and call yourself out, if you’re being negative.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

The first half of Mercury retrograde is going to be an intense time for you in terms of your image. Your insecurities might be overwhelming, so be sure to practice self-compassion and patience. Towards the end of Mercury retrograde, Gemini’s are going to feel a need to retreat and get more rest than the usual. You might find your biggest points of clarity through your dreams, so pay attention to what comes up when you're asleep.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

You might escape some of the chaos during the first half of Mercury retrograde, so use that for quiet personal time and reflection. During the second half, things could shake up your close circle of friends, so be careful about what you say to others. The best thing you can do is listen and be there for your favorite people.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)

Your career and image will be tested during this Mercury Retrograde. You’ll feel lots of pressure in your career and there might be some misunderstandings among colleagues. It can be a time where Leos decide they don't want to continue on a certain career path or they begin chasing a new dream. Be careful of that desire, because it's probably not something that will be sustainable in the long run.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)

You might feel a little sensitive as things are thrown out of whack during Mercury retrograde. It’s a good time to explore your beliefs and different cultures, but not a great time for long-distance travel. Also, Virgo should avoid making any major moves when it comes to their career and be careful about what you put out on social media or in any public forum because there's a slight risk of public embarrassment if a Virgo isn't fully prepared to present the information they're trying to convey.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)

During this time, it’s probably not a good idea to jump on a flight right now. Travel delays, changes in travel agendas, and frustrating experiences in foreign territories are likely to happen for this sign. So it’s best to stay put and do a little bit of inner work and that could ignite an exciting new learning obsession later on this month.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

You might struggle to stay afloat during this Mercury Retrograde. It’s a good idea to be extra cautious of where your money goes and not to make any huge purchases right now. Debts of all kinds might come to the surface, whether it's a straightforward credit card debt or an emotional debt with someone you thought you were close to. Scorpios might also feel self-conscious but that’ll go away soon.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

You’re known for being noncommittal when it comes to love, but this Mercury retrograde will strain your relationships. So, it’s a good idea to take things slow and avoid taking your frustrations out on those around you. 

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)

You might feel a little uninspired, but the actions you take during Mercury retrograde, especially when it comes to your routine, will be instrumental to getting the important stuff done. Mercury retrograde is asking Capricorns to learn the value of staying in the present moment, rather than always looking to the future and focusing on the end game. 

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)

Your fire might feel like it’s fading during Mercury retrograde and staying inspired might seem like an uphill battle. So, avoid getting caught up in any frustration and direct your energy to the bigger picture. It's a good time to ignore the dating apps for a few weeks and instead turn all that energy inwards. Aquarians have a massive opportunity to find a new hobby or creative passion right now.

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)

Things might be stirring up in your home, so it’s a good idea to be extra mindful of missteps with your family during this time. Do your part by taking accountability where it’s due and be extra clear about what your intentions are. Expect disagreements with anyone in your immediate family.
