Mercury is the fastest moving planet in the solar system.  Mercury represents
thoughts, travel, business, communication, education, siblings and speed.  
Because Mercury moves so fast its influence is not always perceptible until it
begins a period of retrograde motion.
During a Mercury retrograde period we can experience issues with
communication, travel and means of travel, electronics, business
transactions and confused or clouded thinking.  Any retrograde period is also
a time to reflect, reconsider and reevaluate the direction you are heading and
how fast.  There is a shadow period of five days before and after a Mercury
retrograde to be aware of.  Those born in the signs Mercury is retrograde in
usually feel the strongest effects. If you have your Birth Chart look to see
what houses are most affected by the retrograde.  This year Mercury is
retrograde three times with the first two being in two signs each.   Here is
what you can expect from the three Mercury retrograde periods during 2019:

March 5 - 28
Retrograde Mercury in Pisces 3/5-3/19
Retrograde Mercury in Aquarius 3/19-3/28
This Mercury retrograde occurs in two phases.  The first phase is Mercury
retrograde in Pisces contributing to a foggy thought process, desire to
mentally escape and the need to pay close attention to what and how people
are communicating.  This can be a heightened intuitive period but also a
tendency to think others' can read your mind.
The second phase is Mercury retrograde in Aquarius which tends toward the
more mischievous and rebellious tendencies in all of us.  It is a time of
radical thoughts, innovation and being outside the box in our thoughts and
actions.  Be cautious of not taking this too far, including humor that may
become offensive or social commentary that is inflammatory.   
Reflect in the first phase on what it means to take a mental and emotional
break.  Are you listening to your intuition enough?  Are you caught p in too
many dreams and not enough logical thought?.  It is a good time for a
psychological review.  
Reflect in the second phase of how your thoughts or beliefs differ or are the
same from current social trends.  What is healthy humor, progressive thought
and best ways to communicate the human condition?
Most Affected (Phase 1):  Pisces, Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, Aquarius, and
Cancer.
Least Affected (Phase 1):  Aries, Taurus, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Ophiuchus, and
Capricorn.
Most Affected (Phase 2):  Aquarius, Aries, Gemini, Leo, Scorpio, Ophiuchus
and Taurus.
Least Affected (Phase 2):  Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, Capricorn and
Pisces.

July 7 - July 31
Mercury Retrograde in Cancer 7/7-7/24
Mercury Retrograde in Gemini 7/24-7/31
The first phase of Mercury retrograde in Cancer highlights the emotional
attachment to what we think and say.  There may be a tendency to hear
more with our emotions than our heads causing unintentional hurts and
assumptive thinking.  Be cautious of emotional purchases on items for the
home, family or emotional need.
Phase two of Mercury retrograde in Gemini creates a busy and possibly hectic
period of time with the social calendar filled; lots of travelling about for
personal as well as professional reasons; and the temptation to buy or eat up
gossip.  Indecision is likely during this phase.
Reflect on your dreams and visions of your future and how you share them
with others.  It is a good time to review or re-write wish lists and to return to
meditative practices that quiet the mind and allow for creativity and
visualization.
Most Affected (Phase 1): Cancer, Aries, Leo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces.
Least Affected:  Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Ophiuchus Aquarius and
Sagittarius.
Most Affected (Phase 2):  Gemini, Aries, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius
and Pisces.
Least Affected (Phase 2):  Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Scorpio, Ophiuchus, and
Capricorn.

Mercury Retrograde in Libra
Although this can be a very social period there may be delays or
rearrangement of plans during mercury retrograde in Libra.  Gossip, social
awkwardness and a need for better diplomacy will be necessary so that no
one's nose gets bent out of place.  Be cautious of committing too quickly to
parties or get togethers due to a feeling of peer pressure.  During this
retrograde all one-on-one relationships will need better listening skills in
order to avoid any misunderstandings.
Reflect or rethink what a healthy social and professional balance looks like
in your life.  How do you communicate and listen to your partner or spouse?  
It may be time to have difficult discussions about equality and fairness in
your most significant relationships.
Most Affected:  Libra, Leo, Cancer, Aries, Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius.
Least Affected:  Gemini, Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, Ophiuchus and Pisces.
