What The Mercury Retrograde Means For Your Zodiac Sign

Horoscopes

We're currently in the midst of our first Mercury Retrograde of the year. The planet of communication, learning, and travel has dipped back into dreamy, intuitive Pisces until the 28th of the month. Expect a dip in your energy levels now that we have quite a few planets in this sign, including the Sun and Neptune, which can make our minds a little foggy. You may feel a lack of direction right now due to the Piscean mutable energy. However, you are encouraged to surrender to the flow right now as this Mercury Retrograde gifts you the opportunity to reconnect with your soul and to receive the next steps for your journey.


Be gentle with yourself and others, as this is a highly sensitive time. Focus on developing your psychic gifts through meditation, divination, or dream work. Your inner world will be very active over the next few weeks. Try to keep a journal to record your experiences or to simply release the overwhelm of emotions that you're feeling during this empathic time. Overall, this Mercury Retrograde can be a beneficial factor in helping you gain the closure you need surrounding situations in which you've played the role of victim or martyr. It's time to revamp your perspective when it comes to using boundaries that empower you and contribute to healthier interactions with others.

Check out the horoscopes below to help you navigate this Mercury Retrograde:

Your energy dominates this month with four planets swimming through your sign. Even though it's your birthday season, you may be experiencing low energy levels as Mercury Retrograde has the tendency to draw us into our inner world to reevaluate at least one area of our lives. For you, this focus has to do with the way that you present yourself to the world. This period of soul-searching is giving you the chance to pinpoint any beliefs that limit your soul's authentic expression.

Mercury's influence encourages you to reexamine your personal narrative. It's time to ditch the underdog mindset and start recognizing just how powerful you really are. Your words are spells, sweet Pisces. Speak affirmations over yourself to strengthen your faith and confidence in who you are. Be easy on yourself this month and allow time for plenty of rest. Overexerting yourself physically is counterproductive to the purpose of this planetary transit. Your intuition is at a peak during this retrograde, which is opening you up to cosmic downloads that will help you level up into a new and improved version of yourself.

I know, I know. Traditionally, the bride's parents is responsible for paying for the wedding. My family just isn't set up that way. When we decided that we were going to have a wedding, we talked openly and agreed going in that we would be covering all of the expenses, and needed to remember that with each decision.

A few months ago, I had a breakthrough. After a promotion led to me having a completely different supervisor, what was once a five-year plan to transition out of the organization I was working at, turned into five-month plan. It's a scary point in my life that I haven't found myself at before: I'm not leaving a job because I want better pay or a higher position, I want to leave simply because I'm unhappy.

Just over a year ago, Chardae Jenkins decided that it was time for a change.

She had a job that she enjoyed as a junior publicist for Allied Moxy, the African-American marketing arm of Allied Integrated Marketing. She worked with a team that she loved—a small group of go-getters committed to bringing entertainment marketing campaigns to life for films such as Straight Outta Compton and Barbershop 3: The Next Cut. Not to mention that the pay wasn't too shabby either, enough for Chardae to stack almost eight grand in her two-and-a-half years at the company.
