Mercury in Retrograde: What it Means and How to Navigate It Based on Your Zodiac Sign

On April 21st, the planet of Mercury will enter a retrograde motion and we want you to be ready for whatever life throws at you. During Mercury retrograde, communication can get a little wonky. You might find yourself miscommunicating with your friends and loved ones, or experiencing technological hiccups that you just can't seem to explain. Here are some tips for each zodiac on how to navigate this unpredictable time and what you can do to make it as seamless as possible. 

Mercury retrograde is when the planet Mercury appears to be moving backward in the sky. Astrologically speaking, this is a time when communication, travel, technology, and decision-making can be affected. During this time it is essential to be patient, flexible, and mindful of potential miscommunications and delays. But don't worry - it's not all bad! There are some upsides to Mercury retrograde, too. 

Here's what each zodiac sign can generally expect during Mercury retrograde:

Aries ♈️

(March 21 - April 19)

Communication is key for Aries this time of year.  Be patient with loved ones and coworkers. Since communication can be tricky, this is a great time to practice your active listening skills and tune in to what the people around you are saying. An Aries is a dynamic and passionate individual who is always looking for new adventures and challenges. Wear the Illumination pendant to create new and exciting memories as only an Aries can. 

Taurus ♉️
