Its time to reassess your long term savings goals with your partner! If you are not currently in a partnership now would be an excellent time revisit what is important to you in a partnership and what you value financially and otherwise. This Mercury retrograde phase is also an excellent opportunity to have a close look at your diet, as we go into the holiday season in the US.

 

And if you are thinking about adding a wee one to your family, the next few weeks will be a great time to contemplate this and decide if you are financially prepared for a new baby. Nebulous Neptune is in the mix November 12-16, so best to avoid major life decisions around this time if you can. Rational Mercury gets spongy when illusion oriented Neptune is influencing. Once Mercury goes direct on November 20 put all of your plans into place!

July Mercury Retrograde Horoscopes by Rising Sign

Below is your Mercury Retrograde horoscope, by rising sign.


If you do not know your Vedic rising, Sun or Moon signs (they will likely be different from your Western astrology rising sign), you can order a birth chart and rising sign report here.

:

Reading the horoscope for your rising sign will usually be the most accurate, but you can read for Sun and/or Moon signs. Vedic Sun signs change slightly from certain decades, but I am listing the best approximate dates for this century for the Sun signs below.

Aries (April 13-May 14)

Mercury is going retrograde in the area of your birth chart that is associated with your emotional well-being. Your ruler Mars is also moving through Cancer with Mercury until August 8. Keep in mind emotional and watery Cancer is the sign where logical Mars is least comfortable. This is also the zone associated home, happiness and mother. Be sure to double check any contracts if selling or buying a home during this time. You may even want to have an attorney review your documents if you are buying or selling a property at this time. it is best to wait until Mercury goes direct for major purchases like a car or house since both of these fall under the zone that Mercury is going direct in.

Taurus (May 15-June 14)

The planet of writing and communication is going retrograde in the area connected to writing and communication! So this retrograde phase is a double indicator to be super cautious about how and what you communicate to others. You don't want to say something you will regret. Especially with Mercury being very close to Mars during the first week of the retrograde phase. Mars can be impetuous and very influential when it comes to Mercury! If you are in a partnership, consider their opinions but do not allow them to be overbearing during this time. Re-assess any writing or communication projects you might have on your schedule carefully at this time.

Gemini (June 15-July 14)

Mercury is your ruling planet and finances will be on your mind while Mercury is retrograde in Cancer. It is an excellent time to revise your savings and long term financial goals. If you feel that you need to make adjustments regarding your spending or the percentage of money you save every month, now through July 31 will be the time to review all the details and then put your plan into place once Mercury goes direct July 31. This is not a good time for any elective facial surgeries...you may find you are not pleased with the results once Mercury goes direct. Best to hold off until after July 31, if possible.

Cancer (July 15-August 14)

Mercury will be headed backward in your sign, emotional Cancer! Mercury, the planet of communication, rational and analytical thinking isn't always super comfortable for emotion based, Moon-ruled Cancers. Re-tooling how you express yourself verbally could be possible during this retrograde time period.There may be something very personal that you will need to address during this retrograde phase. Some old memories may resurface that have been long forgotten. If you have had any past issues with younger brothers or sisters, a best friend or close neighbor, these issues may resurface up for a re-evaluation while mercury is retrograde.

Leo: (August 15-September 15)

The zone of your chart connected to sleep and dreams, your subconscious mind, foreign lands, meditation and retreats are all highlighted during this Mercury retrograde time. Pay close attention to message coming through your dreams, particularly as they relate to finances! For Leos, Mercury is the "money planet" as it owns both houses associated with finances; money you earn from your work and your savings and assets. If you are currently donating money to a charitable organization, this retrograde phase would be a good time to reconsider to where you direct your donations, or the amount of funds you are donating.

Virgo: (September 16-October 15)

Mercury is your ruler and from Virgo Mercury is the ruler of the house connected to the work that you do, your name and how you are perceived at work and in the public eye. Often times, how we are perceived by co-workers, clients and even strangers can affect our income, regardless of our qualifications to do the work.This can be true whether you are self-employed or work for others. Utilize this retrograde phase to consider the money you earn from your work and if it is aligned to your expertise, since Mercury is retrograde in the house connected to the money you earn from your career. If you are self-employed and thinking about charging a higher fee, consider your reputation and renown carefully. Put your plans in place once Mercury goes direct.

Libra: (October 16-November 14)

The planet of business, communication and writing is retrograde in the area of your chart associated with public recognition and your career. If you recently had a big change in your career or if you are thinking about making a big shift, do wait it out until this Mercury retrograde period before you make a life altering decision! It will be a superb time to contemplate your options, but not an ideal time to make major decisions that you could have some regrets about once Mercury goes direct and get moving forward again in August. If you are currently in a romantic partnership or in a business partnership, be sure to not let your partner over-influence your decision making process regarding career during this time, too.

Scorpio: (November 15-December 14) Your spiritual, religious or philosophical views and higher education might be up for a significant change while Mercury is retrograde in Cancer. The balance of July will signal an excellent time to contemplate your beliefs and values. You may also be considering whether or not you want to enroll in a school or take a continuing education workshop. You may also want to carefully assess how your philosophical or educational choices might affect your income, and your wider group of friends and acquaintances. Especially since Mars is currently in sidereal Cancer and in this sign, where Mars, the logician is naturally very uncomfortable contemplating these issues. Whatever the case, if making a major decision or life changing choice, it is always best to wait until Mercury goes direct, if possible.

Sagittarius: (December 15-January 13)

Mercury moving retrograde through Cancer is an wonderful time to re-consider your estate planning, your long-term income tax strategies and any outstanding issues or lawsuits you may be involved in with your partner or through your work that are connected to inheritances or settlements from insurance companies. It will also be a great time to consider charitable giving, whether it is part of your estate or part of your current charitable giving plan. Be sure to wait to put your new strategies in place once Mercury goes direct and ideally once Mercury goes back into Cancer on August 2.

Capricorn: (January 14 - February 11)

How you communicate within your personal and/or business relationships will be very important during this Mercury retrograde in Cancer period. Any old issues or disagreements that arise during the Mercury retrograde phase will offer you a good time to address them again. New issues that come up during this time may not be resolved during the retrograde phase. If you can, it will be an ideal time to stick to solving old problems that are resurfacing and then tackle new relationship issues once Mercury has gone direct and is back in Cancer on August 2. You may also decide that a new approach in relationships will serve you better. Contemplate the necessary changes during the month of July.

Aquarius: (February 12- March 12)

Pay close attention and be sure to address any health concern that may arise for you or your children during this retrograde period. Especially one that you may have experienced before that resurfaces. There might be some additional healing required to move through the issues completely. This will be a great period to explore new methods of healing, and if you are a healing arts practitioner it is a strong period to contemplate the work you do and decide if you want to add a new modality to your healing repertoire or maybe let a methodology go that no longer calls to you.

Pisces (March 13-April 12)

Check in with the areas of life associated with your creative expression, your children or what gives you the most joy in life! Examine these really important parts of your life and assess what gives you pleasure now, vs. what might have felt nurturing in years gone by. Or maybe you want to re-visit something that you enjoyed years ago, but have let go, such hobbies you had, or chanting mantras, playing games or sports. This will be a great time to try out some of your former creative expressions and then make a plan to integrate them once Mercury is direct and returns to Cancer on August 2.
