Mercury Retrograde:

Three Things that Drive your Zodiac Sign Crazy

By now, everyone from the local grocer to your anti-millennial uncle knows what Mercury Retrograde is and sometimes the effect it has. If you have forgotten this hell retrograde period is a three-week annoyance when Mercury appears to move backwards in its orbit around the Sun from the Earth's viewpoint. This Mercury Retrograde cycle happens around three times a year, and here’s a reminder – a Mercury Retrograde period is a time in which everything goes wrong, from technology mishaps, to horrible communication, to travel plans going awry. This retrograde cycle is not a good time for anyone here on planet Earth. A typical dreamy Pisces, for example, probably doesn’t even know their stuff hasn’t been printing, let alone that the printer is broken, but a communication-driven Gemini will literally be pulling their hair out because nothing they say is being understood during the retrograde!

In Astrology, Mercury is the planet of phones, the internet, technology and talking – obvs – so anything this trickster planet Mercury rules is upset, especially communication and each zodiac sign will have a pet peeve, or three, that drive them to drink (figuratively – except for you, Sagittarius – that’s literal). Mercury is also the planet of confusion, gossip and not double-checking the details so when it's retrograde, you can multiple that by two, five or ten.

Here are three things that drive your zodiac sign mad when Mercury is Retrograde:


1.    Nothing goes fast enough during this Mercury retrograde phase. This is enough to make you foam at the mouth, Aries – your zodiac sign cannot abide slowness. From cars, to emails, to decisions, it’s as if everything is moving through sludge.
2.    Your car stops working. A typical Aries worships their rides. And now it’s not only making funny noises, but it’s just not going fast enough. See point 1 above.
3.    The fights. You love a good brawl, Aries, but this is just too much, even for you. Sometimes, you just want to punch someone in the face. And you actually might.


1.    Mixed up food orders. You can’t understand why your local takeaway is not getting it right – after all, you order from them every Friday night. This is an outrage for your zodiac sign.
2.    Netflix stops working. Mercury in Retrograde messes up the internet, didn’t you know? With a mixed-up food order, plus no Netflix, you’re getting grumpier and grumpier. Cheer up, it's only for a few weeks.
3.    Bae is being weird. They’re just not making any sense, and even your famous patience is being tested. Why are they being so dramatic anyways? Darn retrograde. This astrology planet should totally be demoted.


1.    Everything. The struggle is real, Gemini. This is the worst time ever for you, because in astrology Mercury rules your zodiac sign. It’s as if the whole world has become stupid during this retrograde.
2.    Communication problems.  Those texts you normally send that bae loves, those memes mom loves? Suddenly they’re all offensive and you can’t understand why it's having this effect, you're an intellectual air-sign after all so it shouldn't be this hard.
3.    Your brain feels blocked when Mercury is in retrograde motion. Literally. It’s like writer’s block but way, way worse. All those witticisms have dried up and you feel as if your sparkly humor has become an irritating croak.


1.    The arguments with your family. Suddenly, everyone seems to hate each other, and no one is understanding what the other is saying. This makes you feel really, really sad.
2.    Losing your precious photos during a retrograde. This is enough to drive your zodiac sign to the proverbial bottle. There’s nothing – nothing – worse than losing your treasured photos because your stupid hard drive crashed. Tip – use Dropbox or Google Drive.
3.    Arguing with bae. This is the worst. Everything they say hurts you, and all you want to do is crawl into your shell and hide until darn Mercury stops stomping in reverse.


1.    Your credit card stops working. There’s nothing worse than living your best life and suddenly, the shop clerk is giving you suspicious eyes.
2.    The attention is not on you anymore. Everyone’s moaning about Mercury Retrograde, which is totally making you invisible right now. And there’s nothing your zodiac sign hates more than being ignored.
3.    The camera stops working on your phone. No selfies? No capturing special moments of your family and friends? This, sucks. Retrograde sucks. Mercury sucks.


1.    The stupidity of people not learning from the last Mercury Retrograde. Obviously, you’ve planned for this – your hard drive is backed up, your phone turned off and you’ve copied, pasted and printed all your emails into a handy word document. Why hasn’t anyone else done the same? Don't they know what happens during a retrograde?
2.    Nobody is taking your advice. The truth is, you know best, and the fact that no one seems to want your guidance is another reason why people are stupid (see above) and obviously know nothing about astrology.
3.    Your routine is suddenly all over the show. Because of the technology/car/phone issues, you’re finding yourself having to adjust and re-adjust your schedule, and this upsets you more than anything else. Remember, Mercury is your planet ruler after all so you're not off the hook when it starts moving backwards.


1.    All the conflict during a retrograde. Everyone is arguing, and not in a fun, debating kinda way. It’s as if you’re all speaking a new language, and no one gets what the other is saying which is weird for your clever air-sign intellect.
2.    Bae and you are not getting along. For some of you, this even results in (temporary) breakups. The heartache over this astrological Mercury period is the worst for a relationship-lovin’ Libra. You're hoping it's all just an optical illusion.
3.    Social plans are cancelled. Suddenly, things are just not fun anymore, and all the special events you have in mind are gone, and everyone knows how much your zodiac sign hates introverting.


1.    The drama. You’re still in denial that your life is fueled by drama, Scorpio, but nevertheless let’s play along and say you don’t like all the fuss around Mercury Retrograde (wink wink).
2.    Not being able to stalk your ex or newest crush. Social media is throwing up all these irritating glitches, or they’ve figured out how to make their profile private. Whatever. You don’t care anyway. Mercury is lame. The retrograde is even more lame.
3.    The feeling that you should spill your secrets. It feels almost…compulsive. Suddenly, you can’t control the words coming out of your mouth and now the lady at the hairdresser knows you still pine over your ex (see point 2 above), when you actually, really, don’t. Mercury can be annoying like that.


1.    Cancelled flights. Here you are, with your bags all packed and ready to go, excited for the next adventure, and bam – flight canceled. Now you have to wait around, bored AF for the next one. This, for your zodiac sign, is like being in jail.
2.    Travel plans fall apart. This is kinda like point 1, but more. Not only are your flights canceled, the hotel has suddenly gone bankrupt, the tickets to the festival lost and your suitcase has been “misappropriated” during your last transit.
3.    No one is fun anymore. Everyone is arguing and seems uptight. Why can’t they all just relax and forget the petty details Mercury forces us to deal with?


1.    The printer stops working. This is enough to drive a typical Capricorn insane. Doesn’t Mercury realize you have a looming deadline, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to present to the board and now the freakin’ printer doesn’t work anymore? Here or at the dodgy internet store down the road? The struggle is so real right now and this is absolutely not a time to get a new job either.
2.    Your emails get lost. You spent 2 hours – 2 hours! – drafting that mail to the CEO. Now, the internet has swallowed it. Maybe it’s time to allow yourself to shed a tear, Capricorn.
3.    All structures collapse. It’s as if your co-workers have gone mad, and you are the only sane one. Your zodiac sign truly struggles when things go topsy turvy over this period, as if the rug has truly been pulled out from under you.


1.    The. Freaking. Internet. Why won’t it work??? Why, why, why!? Your dark side emerges during Mercury Retrograde, dear Aquarius, as the trusty interwebs fails you and you morph into a more twisted version of Darth Vader.
2.    Your phone breaks. How are you supposed to stay in contact with all your virtual friends? This is like being sent into exile. With all this new-found downtime, perhaps it's time to re-examine your self-care in the real world instead.
3.    Everyone is so emotional. You know it’s Mercury Retrograde, so in some way, you realize no one should take anything anyone says seriously. But here’s bae, crying again, over that “cold” text. Sigh.


1.    Losing your music. Every time, you forget to back it up. You can’t even remember where your hard drive is, let alone mark down that it’s Mercury Retrograde. Thank heavens for Spotify.
2.    There’s even more confusion than usual. Your zodiac sign is not exactly known for being organized, but now it’s as if the whole world has gone mad, and there’s no one to help you do the practical stuff. You’re all floating in a sea of Mercury planetary confusion.
3.    Everyone’s mad at each other. Why can’t people just hug it out? Forgive and forget? This is a spiritual lesson, after all, and you’re not entirely sure why people can’t see that.

    Hello there. This is era. I'm answering your video and I'm a little intimidated because I'm on it. So let's just use this one for you and me before I try to check with the audience. But, yeah, when I got your email and read everything, you were speaking right to my heart. Right to my heart. My spirit told me that this was a good thing. And I'm a crab cancer. We don't just trust anybody. It takes a long time for people to get our trust. But you're the real deal. You are the real deal. And that's why I had to write you and let you know that the only reason why I wasn't getting it today was because of my circumstances. I'm looking forward to my new life. I got the world card today, and that means I'm getting ready to step into a new life that I deserve. I must say, you're awesome. I haven't had a chance to see everything you've done, but I've seen enough to know that it's going to go straight to my heart. I know that, like I said, let's not share this with the world yet. This is just for you. But I promise, when I get her, I'll be glad to do that for someone else who may be in my place that is looking for something besides fluff. They're looking for something real. And I do believe that's what you have, my dear. Something real.

    It. Hey, Kelli. It is Brandon Gonzalez, the one that you've been doing all this amazing stuff for. And wow, am I just surprised. Like the whole angel number twelve thing came at the perfect time. It was matter of fact 1212 when I read it. Please keep doing what you're doing. It is helping me in my life in many different ways. Spiritually, I'm of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, otherwise known as Mormonism. Our god is directing me. You're right. You're completely right. I know my worth. I know where I'm supposed to be headed, what I'm supposed to be doing, just by feeling my own heart and my own decisions that he's giving me. He's giving me. How do I explain this? Perfect situations to just choose from. And if I'm choosing the right, then I get many blessings from you guys. Numerologists, moon readings, all of that, and it all comes together and ties into my life perfectly. So I'm so appreciative of what you guys are doing and it is changing me for the better and I'm excited to see what's to come. And that's really all I've got to say. Thank you, Kevin, and I appreciate everything you're doing. Please keep doing it. I love this and I do not plan on stopping.

    Hello. Good evening, everybody. So, yeah, it's been a crazy journey, crazy life, learning experience. Never thought in my wildest dreams that I wouldn't have to, but it I'm choosing to make big changes in my life for the better of myself. I lived a life of not so great, made poor choices. Some of them had no choice. Most apart, I did have choices. But the past three years, I've been dealing with a lot of stress and a lot of depression and anxiety. But throughout time comes I've been learning a lot about myself. A whole lot about myself, thanks to you guys. All the signs thrown at me, all the emails and everything, which at first I kind of found odd. But as of now, everything's on point. You guys are changing. My life in a whole different perspective. And I'm seeing life and this world we're in a whole different perspective, as in within myself. And now I'm in my comfort place. I like views. I like nature. I like stuff like that. This is where I come get my peace and quiet. I look forward to seeing what's coming for me. Thank.

    Hi, Kelli. Just want you to know that your daily email and the guidance you send it really matters. I'm not sure if it's specific to me or if it's for the collective, but what I do know is that when I received a message, it happens to be what I'm going through currently, or I'm experiencing currently. I thank you for your selfless acts. You're consistent, and I always look forward to reading what you have gathered or gotten from the spiritual guides and all of the spiritual team, the Light team. I am going through a tough period right now in my life, and that's seems to be the song through my whole life. But I do have faith and believe that it has to get better or things have to turn around. It just has to. I thank you.

    Good morning, ma'am. I'm glad that I've been on this program for a while and receiving emails on astrology.tv. So far I can say experience has been quite good and I can explain that everything has been going well since the readings that I've been doing. And so far I cannot complain about what has been happening. And I'm grateful that you have been giving me the rightful answers that have been looking for whatever that has been happening through the atmosphere, not cosmic layers. I've been seeing it like you said, it is going to happen. It's been happening for quite a long time. And I'm thankful that I've been reaching you through this email so that I can grasp more information about my charts based on my best chat and stuff. So I'm thankful, and I just want to take this time to say thanks a lot for your time and putting this all together for me to be able to understand how to analyze astrology and my best charts. I'm thankful for everything that we have done. Thank you.

    Hi, Kelli. It's Michael Julian. Born May 30, 1958 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Birth name is Michelle Julie. I am completely mystified and mesmerized by my birth chart. I love it so much I'm staring at it because I wish I knew the immediate future. I wish I knew some of the future. But I love it so much I'm staring at it. I stared at it for a while. Obviously, I cannot predict my future. I don't know how to read a birth chart, but I know you can. But I wish I knew the immediate future. I live in living conditions. Internal housing that is deplorable. I have to fight for my life, my sleep and I hope and wish for better living conditions in the near future. I keep buying lottery tickets, but it doesn't seem to work. But thank you for my birth chart. I really love it. I want to print it and I don't know if it'd be a good thing to put it on my wall because that's a big secret, right? So thank you very much for that birth chart. And I know about the red lines. Somebody told me some years ago. I know what it has to do with. Thank you so much, Kelli. Thank you very much.

    Hi, Kelli. This is Wendy. I been reading your Astrology TV for the last two years. Really enjoy it. Get your yearly report, destiny Report for this year and enjoying that. I just looked it up my first week of March and not too bad. Always there's always things that you have to fix, but other than that, I really enjoy reading what you write. Always read it every morning, faithfully. And I'm from Armstrong, British Columbia. Canada. That's in the north. Okanagan. And you're living in Australia. I think that's such a neat place to live. But always wanted to go there and see and stay at the crikeys for ten days. Have fun at the zoo. That would be so much fun, wouldn't it? All right, I won't keep you.
