Mercury is going to be going retrograde on November 16th and with that, we have a lot heading our way. This retrograde will last until December 6th and is something everyone needs to be aware of.

Mercury retrograde takes a lot out of a person but it also highlights a lot of things within their lives that they need to change. This retrograde begins just hours after the Venus retrograde ends and with that, you will be shifting into something far more intense than you might have expected. While you should be proceeding with caution, you also shouldn’t be moving too slowly.

People in your life that want to use you are going to be really showing their true colors during this retrograde and you are going to uncover a lot about yourself that you might not have expected to find. We surround ourselves with people we think will be there for us in the long-run but most of the time we end up with something entirely.

You should expect to feel nervous and you might even experience some minor breakdowns as things continue forth. As you may know, the planet Mercury rules over communication and when it is retrograding you will not be able to get your point across anywhere near as easy as you normally would. This time period is quite risky when it comes to making decisions, negotiating, or anything else of the sort.

Astrology King reported as follows in regards to what you need to be paying attention to during this retrograde:

Mercury retrograde can play havoc with your thoughts, communications, travels, and electronics. Take extra care with your words and try not to react too quickly in any arguments or if provoked. Take some time out if you start to feel overwhelmed by the hectic pace. Double-check all of your emails and posts on Facebook before hitting the send button.

Business negotiations will be in a state of flux during Mercury retrograde so avoid signing contracts. Some important details will not yet be available, and others may be unreliable or dishonest. If going on a road trip then make sure you get your car serviced beforehand. The riskiest times for decision-making, negotiations, communication, and transport are the few days either side of the exact retrograde and direct stations. However, care should still be taken during the retrograde period.

Don’t let this retrograde get the best of you, because the more relaxed you are during this retrograde the better. Give yourself room to breathe but don’t allow anything to hold you back. Cut ties with anyone who hurts you and see where you end up when all is said and done.
