Focus creative energy on making money grow. Having a meticulous partner helps. Your emotional balance extends to others. Both learn and teach. Provide motivation. You may have to break eggs to make an omelet. Clean up after.
Settle into some tranquility. Meditation or a dream reveals a new direction. Use your common sense. In a confrontation, listen for the gold. Work out a contentious situation for unforeseen options. No need to decide now. Consider all angles.
Begin a two-day adventurous phase. Consider the big picture. Set long-range goals today and tomorrow, including travels. Make sure your passport is current. Ponder input from others. Loved ones reassure you. Dream big. Invite friends. Venture into unexplored territory.
Think it over before signing contracts. Wax philosophical as you experiment with new concepts. Good time to bond with a group. Your advice is in great demand. And relax. Keep track of the money. For about three weeks, listen carefully and be respectful. Be stingy for the next three weeks. Re-organize a kitchen drawer.

The smallest planet in the Solar System, Mercury's closest to the Sun and completes an orbit every 88 days.
Mercury's retrograde lasts about three weeks, and occurs three times a year. Mercury's the planet that rules over communication, intellect, education, commerce and transportation. Retrograde effects include slowing, blocking, jamming and breakdowns. Listening and reviewing gets more important, as the message can become garbled, lost or delayed.
Mercury's the ruling planet for both Gemini and Virgo, so people born under these signs can be more affected by Mercury Retrograde.

Mars is the action planet, named for the warrior god in Roman mythology. It takes the fourth planet about 687 Earth days to orbit the Sun.
When Mars goes retrograde, which it does every 2 and a half years (usually for two months), thought takes precedence over overt actions, and pressure can become internalized. Stress can lead to health problems, and impulsiveness can lead to arguments and accidents. Release emotion with exercise. It's a good time to take it slower, review the plans, and re-define goals and methods. Avoid risky business, for love or money. New endeavors can stall or may not go as intended, so it's better to choose a launch date after Mars goes direct.
Mars retrograde affects each person individually according to their natal chart, but in general, Mars rules Aries and Scorpio, so these signs are especially affected.
