2018 March 23–April 15 - Mercury Retrograde Most Affected Sun Signs

The Mercury Retrograde that started during the Solar Storm on March 23rd appears to be in full swing. A Mercury Retrograde is thought to occur when Mercury seems to roll backwards in its movement around the sun. This planet is thought to influence all communication. This is often considered a good time to pay close attention to communication and schedules, avoid starting new things, avoid signing new legal documents, avoid downloading anything new for your computer, and note that people may be more likely to have misunderstandings than usual.

Mercury Retrograde, March 22 through April 14, 2018

We are officially in the Mercury Retrograde Pre-shadow phase. Mercury Retrograde station happens on March 22, 2018 in Aries. It runs through April 14, 2018 and the post-shadow phase lasts until May 4, 2018. Mercury Retrograde is when it looks like Mercury is traveling opposite its normal direction on the astrological charts. We are predicting April 4th and 5th to be peak rough days of this retrograde. 

Astrologically, Mercury is the planet that rules communication. When it goes retrograde, it is believed to affect electronics, transportation, decision making and communication.
