Mercury Retrograde here, hang on to your hats! It gets underway from April 1 to April 25, reversing the positive impact of Mercury’s powers as the planet appears to spin backwards.

The key areas affected include travel, communications, technology, and business. Don’t be too surprised to encounter setbacks, delays, gremlins and crossed wires.

It can be a tricky time, but if you make sure you’ve got a Plan B for all major project actions and you are diligent in your planning, you should sail through. And if anything goes awry, well, you can just blame it on Mercury (everyone else does).

Let the tarot help you through by recommending the one area or action you should focus on to avoid getting tangled in Mercury’s tricks!

Aries

March 21 to April 20

Tarot card for Aries for Mercury Retrograde: The Chariot

Meaning: Vehicles, big journeys, home moves, holidays, trips and location changes are indicated with this card so make sure you’re super prepared when you’re on the move.

Pay attention to any issues with your transport and sort them as fast as you can. Make sure you pay attention to the small print on any negotiations. Take your time and be patient. Don’t rush anything. If you’re going away or travelling, then have a plan B in place should anything get cancelled or shift.

Tarot card for Taurus for Mercury Retrograde: Ten of Coins

Meaning: Be super attentive to any negotiations, deals, contractual stuff or administration relating to long-term investments like savings, pensions or mortgages. Make sure you understand all the detail, get a second opinion if not.

Take your time to fully digest what is going on, required, and what you need to do. Don’t rush it. Long-term investments need to be solid and secure, and you can take all the time you need to get the details right for you.

Tarot card for Gemini for Mercury Retrograde: Ace of Coins

Meaning: Be cautious about new projects you start during April – especially relating to home, work, or wealth. You should pay extra attention to the smaller details so that things are set up right from the get-go, and you don’t have to go back later and unpick it.

Be patient. Read everything twice, ask for feedback, project ahead and try to visualise potential issues you could mitigate earlier. Be mindful of doing everything to create the right foundation for new endeavours

Cancer

Tarot card for Cancer for Mercury Retrograde: Three of Coins

Meaning: Be sure to be extra careful and consciously clear around conversations you have with bosses, seniors, or people with influence this Retrograde.

Crossed wires can be a big problem in this astrological phase, and you don’t want someone with power in your realm to get totally the wrong idea about what you’ve asked, suggested, challenged, or inputted. So be clear. Check for understanding. Follow up in writing. Answer questions thoughtfully. Feel sure they’ve got the right end of the stick!

Leo

July 24 to August 23

Tarot card for Leo for Mercury Retrograde: Three of Cups

Meaning: Don’t let sloppy planning, assumptions, or mixed signals get in the way of your social life this Mercury Retrograde. You love having fun, being out and about, mingling, and enjoying good times with friends. With so many people to swirl around, sometimes you forget who’s got what going on, or where the plans are at.

Streamline your events and commitments. Keep it simple. Plan everything upfront and don’t assume others are picking up the slack. Make sure the things you want to do get sorted out.

August 24 to September 23

Tarot card for Virgo for Mercury Retrograde: The Devil

Meaning: Watch out for last minute temptations or distractions which could undermine something you’re working hard to land well. Shiny new activities and opportunities may catch your eye… but the grass isn’t greener elsewhere.

Keep working on what you’ve got vs switching course for something new. You might find a Capricorn person interferes or meddles in your plans, maybe with well meaning intent. Gently head them off!

Libra

September 24 to October 23

Preparation is key (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Libra for Mercury Retrograde: Nine of Cups

Meaning: Be extra attentive to any work, progress, or planning you do around a key daydream or ambition you feel emotive about this Retrograde. You have a big dream you’re pursuing. It really matters to you.

Don’t let the Retrograde create setbacks or obstacles simply because you didn’t double check something or get clarity. Don’t make assumptions, don’t take things at face value if they seem ‘off’. Ask questions, probe, make up plan Bs. Focus your attention on what matters.

Scorpio

October 24 to November 22

Focus on your career (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Scorpio for Mercury Retrograde: Four of Wands

Meaning: Prioritise your progress and promotion goals. You are moving on up in more ways than one and this has been the result of hard work and shrewd strategising. Don’t let this pesky retrograde set you back.

Focus on your next steps, plan them thoroughly, watch the execution and notice anything that needs adjustment, and follow it through. Don’t leave things for another day. Be attentive and diligent in your management of your goal pursuit!

Sagittarius

November 23 to December 21

Try a measured approach to avoid offence (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Sagittarius for Mercury Retrograde: The Empress

Meaning: Focus on the communication amongst family members and loved ones. So often we can shoot our mouth off and not think about the impact it could have on another (because we think we’re in the right).

Arguments are like invasions, they get in people’s heads and fester, grow, mutate… Don’t let that happen, don’t let the Retrograde twist your words or leave someone you love with a negative feeling after conversing with you. Be compassionate, cautious, and caring in your intimate conversations. Make sure you listen more than you talk!

Capricorn

December 22 to January 21

It’s not just Mercury that’s messing with you (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Capricorn for Mercury Retrograde: Seven of Swords

Meaning: This Mercury Retrograde may, inadvertently, reveal a person in your realm who is not as wholesome, kind, and positive as you initially thought (and you are naturally more suspicious than most, so this person has played it very well).

Something happens and you can see their hand in it, and it reveals their true intent. Pay attention, react accordingly, move on and limit their impact in your realm in future!

Aquarius

January 22 to February 19

An eye for detail will get you through, Aquarius (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Aquarius for Mercury Retrograde: King of Wands

Meaning: Be super attentive to the projects, roles, or commitments which you are a leader in, where you have utmost responsibility, where you’re the boss. When the buck stops with you, make sure it never gets to that point by crossing all the Ts and dotting the Is.

Look ahead through the Retrograde (up to April 25) and ensure all plans and big activities are thoroughly investigated and mitigated and ready to go. Pay attention to micro-results and adjust if things look shaky.

Pisces

February 20 to March 20

Don’t leave room for misunderstandings (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Pisces for Mercury Retrograde: Five of Swords

Meaning: The Retrograde may interfere in a situation that is already at a tense, or even conflict, status. So zoom in where you know there is already a sense of distrust or unease and make sure people are clear about what’s going on, who has said what (and not), and where next.

Play the meditator and keep things calm and stable. You will be glad you did because this can be resolved, but not with further issues and gremlins rearing their heads. Be the voice of reason, play the negotiator (you actually quite enjoy it, you’re built for it).
