Mercury goes retrograde on the 31st of October, in the sign of Scorpio, until 20th of November. A planet is called retrograde when it seems to be moving backwards from Earth. However it isn’t actually moving backwards, it just appears to be. Mercury will stay in Scorpio until the 10th of December, when it moves to Sagittarius. It doesn’t often happen when the ruler of both Gemini and Virgo stays for more than three weeks in a sign. This time round it will be almost six weeks, giving us a perfect opportunity to do some profound and intense thinking, about different aspects of our life.
Mercury ends his retrograde and goes direct in Scorpio on 20th of November. It should make the travel and communication return to normal. Fortunately, it is the last time Mercury goes retrograde of this year.
