Virgo: Mercury goes retrograde in Libra today, which, as your planetary ruler, will have a great effect on you. Finances and money will be most affected by Mercury’s retrograde, so take some extra time when balancing your checkbook or dealing with other financial matters. A payment you’ve been expecting may be delayed this week.
Libra: Mercury goes retrograde in your Sun sign today, Libra, which has a major effect on you for the next few weeks. Mercury’s retrograde especially affects your one-on-one partnerships – either business or personal. Have patience when communicating with your significant other or a business partner; there is an increased likelihood of miscommunication today.
Scorpio: Today Mercury goes retrograde in Libra, which will prompt you to confront your deepest emotions. Over the next few weeks, you’ll turn your thoughts inward and address nagging concerns about a relationship that you’ve been avoiding dealing with. Communication may be difficult; however, expressing your emotions is essential to maintaining harmony in your relationships.
Sagittarius: Mercury goes retrograde in Libra today, so be aware that hang-ups and miscommunication are likely. You are especially affected by Mercury’s retrograde when it comes to professional matters, so be aware that for the next three weeks you’ll need to be extra clear when communicating with co-workers, higher-ups, and employees.
Capricorn: Mercury goes retrograde today in Libra, which will prompt you to review your professional goals. Now is the perfect time to make adjustments to your short-term career strategy and review your past performance on the job. Turn to a mentor for valuable advice about your goals and how to accomplish them this evening.
Aquarius: Mercury goes retrograde today in Libra, which may affect plans for a future trip or perhaps force you to reevaluate higher educational goals. The key during Mercury’s retrograde is to take the extra time to think things through when evaluating important decisions. Communication may be more difficult than usual, so you’ll need to make an extra effort to make yourself understood.
Pisces: Mercury goes retrograde in Libra today, which will cause you to be more reflective and contemplative about your innermost emotions.

Aries: The moon is in your Sun sign today, energizing and motivating you to accomplish everything you need to this week. The focus is on wrapping up pending tasks, mainly related to your daily responsibilities, over the next week. Mercury goes retrograde in Libra, however, which may create a bit of a stop-and-go atmosphere; work through it and don’t let it slow you down!

Cancer: Mercury goes retrograde in Libra today, which may put pressure on your domestic situation. Be extra clear when communicating with family members, especially the children in your life. There is an increased possibility that you may be misunderstood or have difficulty expressing yourself, so keep that in mind and make an extra effort to get your point across with clarity.
Leo: Mercury goes retrograde in Libra today, which may make it difficult for you to express yourself clearly, especially in writing. Take the extra time to make yourself extra clear when communicating with siblings and neighbors.
