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.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
