Be sure to read your sun sign and the your ascendant sign if you know it. You will resonate with them both.
Aries: March 21- April 20 Relationships and/or partnerships will be your focus. This retrograde brings an opportunity to zoom in on your closest one-on-one friendships and give them the TLC they deserve. If you’ve been missing out on quality time with a special friend or have swept some resentments under the rug, now’s the chance to address those issues head-on. Have some open-heat conversations so you can move forward with more clarity and closeness.
Taurus: April 21 – May 20 It’s not that you don’t want to hang out with your friends right now, it’s just that it might be hard to make your plans materialize. This retrograde is screwing up your schedule, so expect lots of last-minute cancellations or rain checks. While you usually prefer to set the details of your plans in stone, try embracing some spontaneity and go-with-the-flow approach to socializing in the coming weeks.
Gemini: May 21 – June 20 There is a sense of passion in the air for you right now, so the current slow-downs created by your ruling planet, Mercury will be even more annoying than usual. That said, your friendships can provide a great outlet for your frustration. Have an arts and crafts night or game night with your friend who shares a similar hobby to keep your creative juices flowing through the retrograde.
Cancer: June 21- July 20 You may not be feeling especially social right now, and you would probably prefer to crawl inside your crabby shell rather than attempt to make plans with friends. However, connecting with family members, roommates, or the closest members in your life can be really comforting — especially if you take it easy and just plan some low-key nights in.
Leo: July 21- August 20 – You’re a busy bee right now— and between work obligations, friendships, and your personal life, your days are shaping up to be jam-packed. However, buzzing between so many plans and conversations without any time to slow down and reflect is not a good idea right now. If you’re moving too fast, you could wind up having to cancel plans or saying something you shouldn’t have. Think before you speak and review your schedule before saying yes to any more commitments.
Virgo: August 21 – Sept 20 This retrograde is helping you to take stock of the people in your life that truly matter. If there are so-called friends in your circle who don’t seem to value your energy or treat you with the respect you deserve, now’s a good time to evaluate whether they’re worth keeping around. Reflect on what’s important to you in a friendship and move forward accordingly.
Libra: September 21- October 20 You’re used to playing the mediator in your friendships, and it’s easy for you to placate others and smooth over drama. However, are you doing so at your own expense? Real friends will stick by you, even if you must set boundaries, disagree with them, or say no. Take a long look at the dynamics around you and make some adjustments that satisfy your needs, too.
Scorpio: October 21 – November 20 The thought of socializing and trying to make plans during the retrograde chaos probably feels exhausting to you right now, so this transit is better spent resting and recharging. Don’t feel bad if you feel the need to decline an invite to a group dinner or postpone a catch-up call. Once the retrograde ends and the sun enters your sign toward the end of October, you’ll be feeling refreshed and ready to reconnect.
Sagittarius: November 21 – December 20 Right now, you might feel like the glue that’s holding everyone together, as you’re able to see multiple sides of every situation and help to clear up some of the retrograde-induced conflicts. However, trying to mix too many clashing personalities at a social event could lead to awkwardness and misunderstandings, so proceed with your with caution with your social plans.
Capricorn: December 21 -January 20 This retrograde is giving you a chance to review your current goals at work. It’s a good time to reconnect with professional contacts or friends in your field to get some second opinions on things. It’s hard to see things clearly during a retrograde, so seeking professional advice from a trusted confidant can make figuring out how to move forward feel easier. But don’t make any decisions until Mercury goes direct.
Aquarius: January 21 – February 18 You’ve got the gypsy feeling, but the retrograde can make planning trips and starting new things a bit difficult. However, you can scratch your itch for adventure by connecting with friends who bring you a fresh perspective on life. This could revive an interest in a subject you used to be passionate about, or spark an idea that could help shape your post-retrograde plans.
Pisces: February 19 – March 20 – If you’ve got secrets, debts, or buried resentments lurking beneath the surface of your more intimate friendships, this retrograde may send you on a journey through the depths. Now’s a time to clear the air within your closest bonds and give (or ask for) what you owe — whether that’s money from a loan or a long-overdue apology.
