Mercury Retrograde (12 Mar – 27 Apr) – Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn Are You Affected?
Mercury Retrogrades are commonly discussed among Astrologers as these periods are infamously depicted to be “bad” or “negative”. However, it’s not always the case and it’s just that things tend to move slower, which may also give more time for you to think things through carefully before acting on it.
That being said, the saving grace is that not everyone is affected by this transit and that it may last for only up to 7 weeks between 12 Mar – 27 Apr. In this article, we will cover and describe how would this particular transit affect the 4 signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn.
*Note: Not everyone with the signs Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn will be affected. Only those with birthdays indicated will be most affected.
Aries Birthdays between 25 – 30 Mar
For the period of 12 Mar – 27 Apr, this would be generally a period of settling and slowing down. You may experience this as an uncomfortable period that you may not always be used to. You may feel restrictive and find difficulty to speak up or express your thoughts properly. To ease and find ways to dissipate the restlessness, do maintain your patience and direct your energy towards being more productive.
Cancer Birthdays between 26 Jun – 1 Jul
For the period of 12 Mar – 27 Apr, during this period you may feel quite helpless when dealing with 1-on-1 relationships with other people (especially with people of authority), feeling that they may oppose your plans and hinder your progress. You may find that things may improve if you avoid clashing head-on in arguments, to consider new perspectives and opportunities. A tip is to understand that this may be a cycle in life and a natural flow.
Libra Birthdays between 28 Sep – 3 Oct
For the period of 12 Mar – 27 Apr, energy will be generally down during this period. You may find difficulty in trying to execute your thoughts and plans smoothly. It may be challenging to express yourself or voice your opinions especially if you feel that it might affect relationships. To help tide yourself through this period is to collect your thoughts to understand the issue from both perspectives.
Capricorn Birthdays between 26 – 31 Dec
For the period of 12 Mar – 27 Apr, you may feel restricted from performing your tasks or plans and it may stem from finding difficulty in voicing your opinions, afraid that it may affect the positive impression that you give to authority figures. You may like to consider the issues objectively and rationally without having to jump straight into nasty arguments. Do take the time to put the effort and work towards the things that are important and matters to you.
