As you may know Mercury retrograde is about to begin as it is set to kick off on the 16th of this month. This retrograde is going to be intense and quite complex for many of us. 

While not everyone will be gaining the same things from this retrograde, we will all be affected on some levels. Some people will be moodier and others much more nervous overall. The more aware we are of the energies we’re about to face, the more we can work to protect ourselves in a proper manner. 

Some signs within the zodiac wheel are going to be gaining more energies from this than the rest and those signs really need to be as aware of them as possible. While you cannot avoid them you can work to ground yourself when things become too much. Sure, Mercury is a planet we mostly associate with communication but it embodies so much more than just that.

Below I am going to go over some zodiac signs that are going to be affected the most during this year’s Mercury retrograde and what you need to be aware of regarding those energies. Sure, you will be able to get through them just fine but you need to embrace all they bring forth and face these kinds of things as properly as possible.


As a Pisces, this retrograde is going to seriously kick your butt. You’re going to be confused, stressed, and quite frustrated for a number of reasons. While your passionate side will be highlighted getting things off the ground properly will not be an easy task. Don’t rush into things, just take your time.


As an Aquarius, this retrograde is going to be something that makes you feel more secure somehow but also something that brings challenges your way. You’re going to be struggling to really get your mind where it needs to be and finding that the more you work towards what you want the further back you slide. You need to stop and consider your path, are you headed in the right direction?


As a Cancer, this retrograde is going to bring you to a place in your life where you’re facing challenges you’re not quite sure how to deal with. You’re going to be very conflicted and really need to work to spend this time to think things through. The tension you’re facing doesn’t have to be worked through right now, just spend some of your time thinking and make your choices once this retrograde has finally come to an end.


As a Libra, this retrograde is going to be a lot more frustrating than you might expect it to be. Getting your point across is going to be seemingly impossible and you’re going to be so irritated that you’re not even going to want to spend time with yourself let alone others. Keep in mind that this will pass and try to make the most of it.


As a Scorpio, this retrograde is going to bring a lot of headaches your way. You’re already dealing with a lot and there seems to be more coming towards your plate as this retrograde begins. You will be feeling quite detached from the people around you and much more impatient. This retrograde is going to have you feeling as if the people in your life are unpredictable at best and it’s going to bring a lot of confusion into your life.
