We’ve probably all heard that when the planet "Mercury retrogrades" it brings a variety of mayhem in our lives. But what exactly does that mean?
Mercury symbolizes: communication, contracts, negotiations, robbery, transportation, burnout and stress. When Mercury retrogrades, it affects us in these areas. During that time you may expect delays concerning a contract or negotiations, lost mail, luggage, or important documents. You may also miss some important phone calls. Often mechanical problems with cars, phones, computers, etc. happen. You could experience misunderstandings with others and also lots of stress. Most stress comes from our close surroundings. It looks like everything is going wrong and everyone is in a bad mood.

VIRGO: With Venus in your sign through October 28, heightens your charm, power of seduction, and even your power of persuasion.
On the other hand, Mars is still retrograde in your eight solar house of intimacy, and makes again tense aspects with the planets from your fifth solar house of love, precisely in order to make you think more deeply about your love life.
Many of you – whether married, part of a relationship, or single – might deal with major emotional dilemmas and matters of the heart which can’t be neglected. An ex or a former spouse might come around and try to seduce you. Or maybe you can’t get over a former love, which ends up affecting your current connection or reducing even more your odds at a new relationship.
Keeping in mind Mars’ retrograde motion and the squares made with the planets from your fifth solar house, be caution in your love life. Some of you may even fall head over heels with the wrong person, someone who has secrets, hides things or even has other obligations.
Mercury (your ruler) is in retrograde motion between October 13 and November 4, which suggests that there might be communicational issues and a tendency towards interiorizing. After October 28, you should make time to think and define your own needs and desires.
Work/Money: Mercury (your ruler and also the ruler of your tenth solar of career) begins its retrograde motion on October 13. Mercury is also opposing Uranus (the ruler of your ninth solar house), on the axis of knowledge.
As a result, during this period you get the chance to revise the principles by which you build your professional life, evaluate your qualifications and knowledge, and resume a class that you dropped out of some time ago. If you’re one those coaching others, this term offers you the best conditions to plan your lessons well, get documented, and gather the information you need.
While Mercury is in retrograde transit through your third solar house of communication, negotiations could be slower or go through various difficulties. As a result, be caution and care between October 13 and 28. Then, until November 4, caution should come through when it comes to money, because Mercury continues its retrograde motion in your second solar house of money.
After October 28, you can try to negotiate some earnings or even your contract, but without pushing it and without jumping to conclusions or making decisions.
Mars’ retrograde motion through your eight solar house of joint resources, taxes, benefits, and inheritances, the square between Mars and the planets from your fifth solar house are an extra push to manage your income and debts as responsibly as possible, limit your expenses on entertainment, and clear up your material situation – all the more if you’re thinking about getting a loan.
