Gemini The Twins: (May 20 -- June 21)
Give attention to the lead paragraph. Mercury is turning retrograde in your sign and will be more likely to affect your daily affairs than many of the other signs. Don't even try to finalize anything while a retrograding Mercury is dancing through Gemini.
For All Signs: Mercury, ancient god of travel, communications and routine business, continues in his retrograde trek across the sign of Gemini until June 19. Suggestions: 1) Delay the initiation of important new projects. 2) Use this time to research and investigate alternatives for action. 3) Avoid writing or signing contracts. 4) Avoid major purchases of transportation or communication equipment. The time is most favorably used to finish projects or look deeply into one's interior psyche. Whatever is lost or misplaced on a Mercury retrograde will resurface.
Aries: The Mercury retrograde focus is specifically on communications, neighbors, siblings and others who are in your daily environment. Concentrate as much as possible on clear communications. Double check all messages, including the verbal ones.
Taurus: The probability is high that you will discover some error made in the past that must be rectified fairly soon. It may be as simple as finding a bill that was forgotten and left unpaid. Or it could be a little more complicated and involve a previous misunderstanding with a loved one.
Cancer: Memories from your life history may surface for examination at this time. Old friends or acquaintances who return for a short time could be the trigger for this life review. It is possible you may have a greater than normal need to reflect, to write and otherwise give attention to your inner self.
Leo: Mercury has been retrograding in the Lion's territory that concerns friends, organizations and community contacts. You may be having difficulty bringing things to fruition or conclusion in any of these areas.
Virgo: Your ruling planet, Mercury, has altered directions in the house of career and life direction. This is really more of a tweaked change than a life change. However, you may find that you are changing your mind about any recent decision concerning career.
Libra: Your ruling planet is changing directions in the territory which deals with education, publishing, travel, public speaking, the law and philosophy. Therefore any of these activities are subject to shifts, changes or sudden deceleration due to lack of decision.
Scorpio: As Mercury turns retrograde in your 8th house of "joint resources," you will likely experience a need to go back and review financial history, particularly that which you have shared with another. Perhaps you are rummaging through the archives for lost data and/or receipts. Don't panic. Whatever is lost during a Mercury retrograde, will always return eventually.
Sagittarius: Mercury is retrograding in the territory of significant relationships, contracts and clientele. Any decisions related to "others" in your life may require a few weeks before they settle. Have patience and hold onto your sense of humor.
Capricorn: This Mercury retrograde experience occurs in the territory of health, co-workers, tenants, employees and pets. You may find it hard to move forward with your diet and exercise program. It is a particularly good time to organize and sort closets, records, and files.
Aquarius: Mercury is turning retrograde in the territory that rules children, creative efforts and love life. Anything on your radar screen that is related to these territories is subject to turnaround, review, deceleration, rethinking for a few weeks.
Pisces: This time for the Fish, the area of focus is related to property, family and issues of security. You are likely reworking things in one of these territories. Family members may be erratic or hard to pin down, making it difficult to conclude open agendas.
