Aries — This mercury retrograde will leave you tongue tied. You will find yourself trying to communicate about the same subjects over and over. You’ll feel like you can’t quite get there with words at the moment. Know that the people close to you will understand your intentions.
Taurus — Everything is less than new at the moment and you can feel your attention wanning. Think of all the long term goals you are shaping little by little everyday. Imagine how exciting every choice you make is. Things will pick up soon enough and you’ll be wishing for the rest.
Gemini — Retrograde will make you feel very self conscious. You’ll feel misunderstood by your peers. Don’t let the pressure of others allow a moment of doubt for yourself. You are incredibly capable and there is a lot less judgement than you are perceiving.

Scorpio — This week you can see a lot of things from your past popping up. This could be tasks you’ve been pushing off— reminding you of your responsibilities. It could also be old flames trying to re-enter your life. Be careful of reigniting exhausted paths.
Sagittarius — You think you can see a path, but are afraid you might trip. You should still try your best to walk it. This is a time to turn your focus to yourself and what you have around you. Whatever you choose will be right because you chose it.
