Mercury Retrograde Horoscopes:

February 16 - March 9, 2020

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

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

Mercury is responsible for communication and writing, local travel that takes you around your neighborhood or on a short plane trip and younger siblings. Mercury is also connected to your daily routine, work and service, plus your health and wellness.

 

Due to the exchange of Mercury with Rahu in your third house, plan on a ton of short  trips, either for social or career networking opportunities! This is  a time when you can earn money from writing and communication. Especially if you are writing about health and healing.

 

Since Mercury is retrograde in the area of your chart associated with groups you may be revisiting or revising your daily routine and the time you spend with groups you are involved with. You may also be contemplating the money you earn from your career and may be considering a rate increase if you are self employed or asking for a raise if you work for someone else. Be sure to wait until Mercury goes direct to put your plans into action!

Taurus (May 15-June 14)

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

Money, money and more money is on your mind! Your earthbound sign of Taurus is very focused on accumulating and Mercury is directly connected to your savings account and your assets.

 

While Rahu and Mercury are exchanging signs, your savings, investments and career are deeply connected now through April 6. During the Mercury retrograde phase from February 15 – March 9 is a good time to reevaluate your position in the market or any other investments you might have, such as a 401k from a corporate career or a personal IRA. You may want to consider waiting until Mercury goes direct before making dramatic changes.

 

Also be mindful of any investment that seems “too good to be true” – it probably is! Due diligence is your mantra for financial matters until April 6.

 

Since Mercury is retrograde in the area connected to your public reputation and career, which the most powerful house of your birth chart,  you may want to be extra mindful of your communications in your place of business, whether you are self-employed or working for others. Especially if you happen to do a lot of speaking for your work.

Gemini (June 15-July 14)

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

Since Mercury your all-important chart ruler, you may be feeling this backwards shift more than other zodiac signs!

 

During this retrograde phase, it may be time to rethink your personal goals as they relate to your spiritual practice. If you are currently taking a course of study, you may decide to re-evaluate your course of study. And if you are currently teaching a course that has any kind of spiritual connection, now through March 9 will be a great time to review future course material and make changes once Mercury goes direct.

 

Since the Mercury/Rahu exchange will be happening through early April you may be very drawn to foreign teachings and philosophies and sharing the teachings you have learned from cultures other than your own.

 

Since Mercury is your chart ruler and the planet that represents your brain and analytical thinking, you may choose to be extra mindful of your decision-making process during the retrograde phase through March 9 AND the Mercury Rahu exchange through April 6. Rahu can create confusion and veil the mind and since the exchange is happening in an air sign and Mercury and Rahu are both SUPER VATA (air) during this time, it is important to ask trusted friends and family for advice if you have life changing decisions to make.

 

Mercury is also responsible for the area of your chart associated with your home and happiness. The retrograde phase is not a great period to start a remodel unless you are redoing something that you have done previously. If it makes sense, hold off until March 9 when Mercury goes direct if you can.

Cancer (July 15-August 14)

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

Mercury is ready for you to review your relationship with the occult and the mystical side of life. Whether you dabble in metaphysics or you are fully immersed, take time during this retrograde phase to realign your connection to the mystery. Especially if you are involved in any kind of psychic or medium-ship work.

 

Rahu and Mercury will connect the deep subconscious mind to any or all of the esoteric arts. This could be a powerful time to review your experiences and share them through an article or book one Mercury goes direct on March 9. From March 9 to April 6 will be a particularly good time to write about metaphysical/spiritual experiences.

 

If you are in a committed partnership Mercury retrograde will be an excellent time to review your debt and your charitable spending. Make revisions once Mercury goes direct.

Leo: (August 15-September 15)

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

Time to revisit some former romantic liaisons! You may or may not be re-connecting with an old love now through March 9. Whatever the case, it is a superb time to contemplate past relationships and the patterns you do not want to repeat in the future. Especially related to how you want to manage your money in your relationship going forward and how you communicate with your beloved.

 

If you are dating you may be meeting many potential partners from distant lands. Just beware of the potentially deceptive Rahu influence and make sure any potential partner actually is who they say they are!

 

If you are in a business partnership, you may want to use this Mercury retrograde period to reflect upon your financial arrangements and determine if changes need to be made moving forward. It is always ideal if you can wait until Mercury goes direct (March 9) to make sweeping changes to agreements.

 

Your chart ruler Sun gets caught up in the Mercury/Rahu exchange, too since Sun is moving through Aquarius until March 13. This will place a huge emphasis on relationships for you.

 

During the Mercury/Rahu exchange from March 9 – April 6 it is time to maximize profits from partnerships from other countries or from international trade. Networking is a must at this time for either social or career advancement.

Virgo: (September 16-October 15)

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

You may be experiencing some hard to pin down health issues during this Mercury retrograde phase. If so, things should become clear once Mercury goes direct, and if not by then, after April 6 when the veils of Rahu are lifted from Mercury. It is also a wonderful time to initiate  healing treatments for a reoccurring health issue.

 

If you are not having health issues, this is a fabulous time to reassess your health goals for 2020 and get your plans into place on March 9 when Mercury goes direct.

 

Your work or regular daily responsibilities may feel as though you busier than ever. During this Mercury retrograde period it is an excellent time to reassess your career path – are you on track for where you want to be? Are you doing the kind of work that you are inspired by?  Do you want to work in the healing profession, if you are not already?

 

If you are already doing work helping others to heal, you may be drawn to working with foreigners or practicing a healing art from a country other than your own during this time.

Libra: (October 16-November 14)

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

Time to reimagine romance! Especially as relationship connects to your spiritual path and those you are in a partnership or have been in a partnership who hail from foreign lands.

 

If you are in a committed partnership, it may be time to renegotiate date nights and join together for a quiet evening of meditation or attend a spiritual retreat together. Or you may just decide you want a more deeply spiritual connection with your romantic partner.

 

If you are aspiring to be in a committed partnership, the fact that Mercury and Rahu are exchanging signs may bring someone from another country or ethnicity into your life now through April 6. They may be very spiritual and have a religious or spiritual philosophy different from your own (this depends largely on the individual birth chart!). During the retrograde phase it may be a romantic partner from your past that you met while traveling abroad on holiday or while at school.

 

Whatever the case during Mercury retrograde you will be reevaluating relationships, spiritual path and your connection to partnership and foreigners, one more time!

 

If you have a teacher or Guru approach you with a romantic proposition from now through April 6, it is a good time to use caution and evaluate the proposal and the individual closely. Rahu is the grand master of illusion.

Scorpio: (November 15-December 14)

You may be experience personal transformation at a very deep level at this time. Mercury is going retrograde in the area of your birth chart associated with your heart center – literally and figuratively. Your home, happiness, intuition and what you need to do to transform this sensitive zone is on your agenda from now through March 9.

 

Due to the influence of master illusionist Rahu on Mercury you may want to make some impulsive choices during this time. Keep a journal, write it all down and see how things feel once Mercury goes direct on March 9 and after Rahu and Mercury are no longer playing footsie after April 6! Then you can put whatever plans in place to secure your happiness now and in the future.

 

You may also be rethinking your social connections or career related networks that you belong to during the Mercury retrograde phase. Now through March 9 is a fantastic time to reconsider what your goals are and how much time you really want to invest on social media or in larger groups networking for your career advancement

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

Communication in partnerships is key during this retrograde phase! Whether it is a business or romantic partnership, it is time to revisit how you and your partner interact. This will also impact how you communicate with others at your place of business.

 

The element of courage comes into play and how you show up personally in your partnership. Are you standing firm in your own beliefs and values or are you allowing your romantic or business partner to overwhelm you? Take time during from now through March 9 to determine how you want to show up in relationship going forward. Put your new plans in place after Mercury goes direct on March 9.

 

The Mercury/Rahu exchange that occurs throughout the retrograde phase will have a big influence on matters. You may be getting a technology upgrade at work that is more reliant on email, messenger and other technology platforms to streamline work processes and communication.

 

There may also be some foreign connections popping up in your business sphere or if you are dating, you may be drawn to someone from another country. Your partner may be running about a lot during the Mercury retrograde period and through April 6 – potentially addressing issues from the past few months or just running a ton of errands locally.

Thinking about a debt reduction plan? Not a very sexy forecast, I know! But now is the perfect time to utilize the Mercury retrograde phase and contemplate spending and any debt you might have and formulate a plan to get it cleared up.

 

What can be removed from your daily expenses to go into your debt reduction plan? Every little bit counts! Make a list and put things into place once Mercury goes direct on March 9.

 

You may also want to revisit your diet as it relates to your long-term health objectives. Again, time for an edit! If you have not had your food allergies tested, this would be a great time to get that done so that going forward you can see how your food sensitivities affect your mood, weight and overall wellness.

 

With the Mercury/Rahu exchange that is going on through April 6, you may be very drawn to eating or cooking foreign foods. Or possibly over-eating, since that rascal Rahu just cannot be filled up!

 

Be very mindful about eating and spending during this time.

Aquarius: (February 12- March 12)

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

Time to connect to what you really want to experience creatively. Mercury is headed retrograde in your first house which is the house of YOU! So this is a very personal retrograde phase that is tied directly to your creativity, your children and your ability to experience joy through all of these things.

 

At the same time with analytical Mercury and ravenous Rahu exchanging signs, you may be quite obsessed with matters in these areas of your life. Use the Mercury retrograde period to assess what attitudes and behaviors from the past that might be standing in the way of your creativity.

 

You may be thinking about having another child or possibly adopting a child during this time as well. Whichever the case, it is always wise to wait until after Mercury turns direct on March 9 to put any plans into place.

 

Especially since Rahu is in the house associated with the mind – the Grand Master of Illusion, Rahu, can create tremendous desire and also some veils around the mind and these parts of life. Consider making life altering choices after Mercury moves away from the influence of Rahu on April 6.

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

Your dreams may be super active at this time! Mercury retrograde may bring up some long-lost memories that are very powerful and healing. This is also a fabulous time to work with a dream journal or a therapist who specializes in dream interpretation.

 

At the same time you want to use your home as a staycation or mini-retreat center. The influence from Rahu to Mercury throughout the retrograde period and up until April 6 will emphasize the desire to inject foreign design elements into your home. Maybe a lamp from the casbah or a throw India made from colorful patterns to spice up your home? Or maybe you have a friend from another country coming for a visit? Or you may be considering investing in that plot of land abroad for future vacations to your favorite foreign destination.

 

Or you may decide to take an amazing (and expensive!) trip to a foreign land for a spiritual retreat. Maybe your mother wants to join you? This could be a very powerfully spiritual time for her too.

 

Be sure to wait until Mercury goes direct on March 9 to put major plans/changes in place so you know that they will stick for the long term!

:

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)

Please note Vedic Sun Sign dates are not the same as in Western astrology!!!

 

This Mercury retrograde phase is a double whammy in the communication department for you Aries! Mercury, the planet of communication, writing, business is also the planet that rules the zone of your horoscope associated with writing and communication. Double check EVERYTHING during this Mercury retrograde period. Especially important legal documents that have to do with joint finances, if you are in a partnership.

 

Be sure that your partner is able to assess the situation clearly, especially since optimistic Neptune is strongly influence Mercury retrograde from November 12-16. This is a good time to review your day to day expenses and make adjustments once Mercury goes direct on November 20.

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!

Try to stay realistic (usually not difficult from pragmatic Capricorns!) but know that dreamy Neptune is in the mix from November 12-16 and you may want to avoid major decisions at that time if you can.

 

You may be reevaluating your larger group of friends at this time too - not your BFF category of friends, but your casual acquaintances and those who you know through professional organizations that you belong to. Contemplate what needs to be transformed in these areas of your life and put your plans into place once Mercury goes direct on November 20.

Thinking about changing jobs or starting your own business? If you haven't until now, this may be the time you begin the process toward a change in career.

Or a getaway to a distant land for spiritual purposes would be another consideration. Whatever you decide it will be important that you have a great passion for the journey.

July 2019 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 usually  be different from your Western astrology rising sign), you can order a birth chart and rising sign report here or calculate your chart online 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.
