Mercury Retrograde is here once again! For some of us it means a time of renewal. For others it may mean everything is about to go haywire! Some say it depends on what sign you are. Here’s a breakdown of what each sign may expect when it comes to this new Mercury Retrograde episode.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): As the holidays creep up this week, so does your birthday time. There are so many reasons for festive celebrations! Also, so many gifts all around. Don’t let this ruin anything, but Mercury goes retrograde on Monday (ugh!), so hopefully you haven’t left a lot of your shopping for the last minute. But this retrograde won’t affect you too much. If anything, you’re in a comfortable financial position right now to get things crossed off your Christmas list, leaving you free to enjoy the holidays the way you want to.
You might be traveling for the holidays, but no matter where you are, this weekend will definitely be a shiny, happy time. This will be one of your most memorable holidays yet and it seems as if everyone is feeling the holiday cheer and spirit! Enjoy all the good will and good vibes.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): You’re a generous soul and it’s been hard to budget this holiday season. You’ve been spending and spending, but this week as Mercury goes retrograde, you may want to take a step back and make sure you haven’t gone too crazy. If you’ve overspent, you still have time to budget without sacrificing your holiday plans.
This will be a really pleasant holiday. You love to host and have lots of loved ones around. Over this holiday weekend, you find a lot of shared joy and harmony. As you host or visit family, your creative side is out to play and your ideas are flowing. This weekend has you filled with love and inspiration!

Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Though Mercury goes retrograde on Monday, it may have some positive results for you. You already know the negative aspects of a retrograde, so prepare for a tough and frustrating shopping week where obstacles or lack of supplies keep popping up. Hopefully you’ve already done a lot of your shopping!
On the bright side, retrogrades can also bring people up from the past so when you head home for the holidays, don’t be surprised if you run into exes or long lost friends — only to find a new positive connection. Financially, this is a positive week for you too, despite all the holiday spending! This year’s holiday weekend definitely has a magical quality to it. You will remember this time for years to come!

Aries (March 21 – April 19): The holiday season has been fun for you — Aries does enjoy a good party! But as the holidays approach, you’re ready for a cozier, more intimate celebration. You’re ready to wind down and take it easy before the New Year. You might even be ready to purge your space, clean your closet or streamline some areas in your home or life. You want to enter 2017 ready for new beginnings, and you have a good feeling it will be one of your best years yet.
The holiday weekend this year will be just what the doctor ordered, mellow and cheerful. It will fill your heart so that you can move forward with plans with even more optimism!

Soak it all in, because this holiday weekend is one of the best you’ve had in years. You so cherish tradition and time at home with the family, so this means the world to you.
Amidst all the festivities, just try to stay as organized as possible in your travels — and in marking gifts! You don’t want to give Mercury retrograde any extra help, and you want to make sure the right gift goes to the right person.
