As we move forth we’re beginning to realize that Mercury’s retrograde this time around is going to be much more positive than we’re used to. This retrograde which begins soon is going to really help us all in ways we may have never imagined. 

Mercury goes retrograde on the 18th and because it doesn’t hold any planetary influences it will be bringing more clarity than we may expect. Rather than bringing us down and holding us accountable, it will be feeding into our current energies, and if we’re in a good headspace maybe even allowing us to grow more properly. This retrograde is one we should not fear. 

Below I am going to go over what each element of the zodiac is going to be seemingly experiencing during this retrograde. While some of these things may be hit or miss, they will help you get a good idea of the energies before you. When it comes to your own wellbeing, things are going to be looking up big time. 

Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius 

For fire signs, this retrograde is going to be bringing out their patient side which you don’t see often. They’re going to be slowing down and really taking things one day at a time. I know, you’re all about structure but right now things are going to be a bit different. You’re going to be focusing more on the inside of things rather than the outside of things.

Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

For air signs, this retrograde might be a bit overwhelming but not in a bad way. You’re really going to be standing up for yourself more than usual and figuring out where you want to be in this world. While you shouldn’t make any big decisions you should be thinking more which you will. I know, things might feel a bit crazy as these energies come forth but you can handle them without issue.

Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces 

For water signs, this retrograde is going to make you consider the feelings of others more but also their intentions as well. You’re going to be looking into things more and really cutting off people who serve no purpose in your life. While these people might be important to you, they are doing nothing to feed into your friendship and they’ve got to go.

Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

For earth signs, this retrograde is going to make you feel a bit out of place. These signs are going to be stressed and confused but not too severely. During this time staying calm and thinking things through is important. Do your best to work through the things before you and stop ignoring the issues at hand, they will only get worse if you ignore them.
