Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
Mercury Retrograde happens in your Solar House of the home, offering you an opportunity to sort through whatever might still be needing your attention. I realize you may be tired of your surroundings, but this is a chance to clean up even more details—especially the ones you were hoping would disappear.
Taurus April 20-May 20.
You’re likely to be repeating yourself through this Mercury Retrograde phase—it’s retracing its path through your Solar House of communication and that could mean no one hears you or you can’t hear others or any combination of those situations. So rather than fume, be patient with yourself and others.
Gemini May 21-June 21
Mercury Retrograde pokes at your finances, asking you to reconsider several details you would rather ignore. I’m not suggesting you are in denial; I am pointing out that it’s not possible to escape reality. There’s no need to be anxious about the outcome if you’re willing to show up for this process.
Cancer June 22-July 22
Mercury Retrograde focuses on your persona, asking if your public image is congruent with your public presentation. If it is, you can use this time to tweak the little bits that might need attention. If it is not, this is the ideal moment to contemplate what needs to change and how to change it.
Leo July 23-August 22
Mercury Retrograde occurs in your Solar House of the unconscious—a position that makes it really hard to get a grasp on the details unless you use your dreams as a window into what needs attention. This retrograde could also unfold as a tendency to brood, so do whatever it is you do to stay positive.
Virgo August 23-September 22
Mercury is in your Solar House of community, so I would anticipate spending more than a minute thinking about how you can reassess your role and refine your participation in community projects. It’s an important time to contemplate the value of being connected with others, so seize the moment and use it wisely.
Libra September 23-October 22
Mercury Retrograde takes place in your Solar House of career, which translates into a review of what you want to be recognized for. Even if this seems like an overwhelming process, don’t shy away from it. Even if it is uncomfortable for a moment or two, it will be worth your effort.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
It won’t be easy, but if you follow Mercury’s retrograde lead, you could find yourself reviewing a variety of belief systems to see which ones still hold true for you. This is an important phase because so many accepted beliefs seem to be losing traction. Know what’s true for you, and you’ll stay steady.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
Mercury goes retrograde in your Solar House of transformation, which means you can expect to revisit old processes and realizations, not because there’s something wrong but just because Mercury likes to make sure you’re not missing anything; you could be acting out of habit rather than awareness.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
Mercury Retrograde reexamines partnership issues, especially issues related to comfort, safety, and security with significant others. As you reflect on your relationships—this could be spouses, lovers, close friends, or business partners—try to notice where you could refine the quality of those interactions.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
Mercury is retrograde in your Solar House of service, which means you’re reviewing work needs, self-care habits, and how you take care of others. You might resent some of the feedback you experience during this phase, but if you listen closely to what’s said, you’ll make the most of this experience.
Pisces February 19-March 20
Mercury Retrograde occurs in your Solar House of self-expression, which could translate into a review of previous creative projects and a desire to dust them off and get back to work on refining your ideas. Embrace this process, even if it means revisiting some uncomfortable situations—it is a worthwhile process.
