Mercury in astrology rules communication, transportation, information, and technology. When this planet turns retrograde, the staples of our daily lives (cell phone, car, laptop) go haywire. Since this retrograde occurs in the impatient sign of Aries, our tolerance and prudence will not last very long, as delays threaten to interrupt our forward aims. Consider yourself forewarned. But the setbacks we experience courtesy of Mercury retrograde will most likely be blessings in disguise, as Mars has just recently entered the sign of Capricorn, a sign where the warrior planet is exalted, and operates at its very best.
Capricorn is an Earth sign that values strategy, structure, and long-term success; it is possible to get all kinds of shit done with this influence in effect if we plan accordingly. There are bound to be some stumbling blocks along the way with the retrograde, but such obstacles will only ensure that we end up on the right track to effectively execute any course of action. Adjustments will be necessary, then. We must all be flexible if we hope to reach success, and, success is very possible.
The season of Aries looks to be ambitions, assertive, and rewarding, should we do our due diligence using Mars in Capricorn to focus on our agendas. Now is the time to embark on those dreams set off to the side. Good luck!
