Horoscopes for the Double Retrograde

blog copy.jpg


The weather can have great effects on individuals, and this is natural, but Astrologically a lot is occurring as well. Currently, both Venus and Mercury are in Retrograde. What does this mean? In terms of Mercury in Retrograde, this will affect your interactions with others. 

Mercury rules the planet of communication and therefore you have to be careful of what you say, how you say it or who you say it to. Relationship drama could run high.

Watch your tongue, and do your best not to put your foot in your mouth or cause conflict with others. The planet Venus is the planet of love and relationships so you can see how this is affected by troubles with communication. With Mercury in Retrograde, Venus in Retrograde will be intensified. This is a time to walk on eggshells, let the moments pass and see what comes your way in the aftermath. Venus in Retrograde will challenge and complicate relationships so if there are any fragile issues it's best to address them wisely. The good thing is, you know to blame it on the Retrogrades. 

Communication is the most important thing in a relationship so ensure that you are staying true to your intentions and relaying the right messages. Keep in mind, that what you don't say can be equally as deadly.

Remember, in this life, we spend most of our time communicating online or via text. All of these form of communication count. Wise Mind Presses Send. Don't let the emotional mind do your communicating--this is how you are feeling NOT what you are thinking logically. Use rational mind in combination with your wise mind to come to the right conclusion. What's Wise Mind? It's a state of knowing, it's the advice you would give to your friend in this position, it's who you want to be at the end of the day, a mindset which allows your intentions and words to be in line with each other so that you can feel good about your interactions.

Here are Some Short Horoscopes to Keep you in Line During this Time:


Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19)

The most important thing is that you control your temper. Sometimes you get angry or frustrated, and it's usually directed at the people who matter most to you. Try to harness this during the double retrograde because it could bring out the ugly in you. You're not that person at the root so you just end up feeling bad, but then you're not always the best at saying sorry, even if all you want is resolution. You want things more when they are not around but have to learn to appreciate them when they are around. As much as you want attention, other people want your attention. Pay attention to your aura and make sure your energy is actually where you think it is. Sometimes you push yourself too hard and at this time, this could be dangerous. 


Taurus (Apr 20-May 20)

We all know that Bulls like Chris Brown can be bulls in a china shop when they get mad. It's better not to wake the beast, but during the double Retrograde, Taurus might be more moody and negative then likely. If you are trying to make a big change right now, be careful, and this time, yes, proceed with caution. Don't get ahead of yourself, but ask yourself, "what do I want"?" And "what am I willing to do to get it?" Make sure you are over the moon about things. Communicate with your partner with empathy, love and concern. Don't scold or attack, just try to listen and meet that person halfway. The moment you get ahead of yourself is the moment you find yourself in trouble. 


Gemini (May 21-Jun 20)

For Gemini it's watching what shit they might talk if affected by the double Retrograde. Gemini can talk a lot of talk, especially when drunk, but they usually mean only 10% of it. Gemini does see the good in the people they pick on, and they don't wish them any harm. Communication is something Gemini masters, but they need to learn to talk about their emotions. What you don't let go will only come back to haunt you, and I say it so many times because it is true. You have to deal with your demons. Nobody is to blame for them, so stop looking for reason, and get the help that you need. 




Cancer (Jun 21-Jul 22)

The double Retrograde for Cancer means sour thinking and bad, rainy day moods. Cancer has to find a way to uplift themselves from the misery, which is often self-created. Try to focus on something to look forward to and be proud of how far you've come. A lot of you are in a comfortable, successful spot that you can be proud of. Talk about what's bothering you instead of letting things pass. If things bother you, it's important that you speak on it. Use a language that works, don't shut down or isolate because that only makes the problem worse. 



Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22)

It could go a few different ways for the Leo. The double Retrograde will either spike their need to talk about matters or take them to a place of escape and seclusion. The truth is, Leo is still troubled by some issues, but instead of dwelling on them, they are moving on to new light. As What's Your Birthday? always says, Leo wants to shine, and they refuse to stay in dark places. Communication for Leo has to be honest and sincere. Leo prefers to be kind, but sometimes the truth is just the truth and it hurts. Even Leo cannot always handle the truth, so if you are planning on telling something constructive to a Leo, I suggest you use a lot of sugar. Leo just wants to be treated in the same fashion that they treat you and if you know a Leo, you can agree that this treatment is pretty exceptional. 



Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22)

The double Retrograde for Virgo will only make them more fickle, more critical and more irritated. They have to ensure that they are in a position to be with their lover. Sometimes Virgo needs space, self-amusement, and freedom.They don't need to be with you 24/7. Virgo struggles to communicate a lot of things, though many are excellent communicators, they just have a hard time finding the words to identify their thoughts and feelings. A lot of Astrology books credit Virgos for being good writers because here we can see a real sense of deeper expression. Virgo has to try to metaphorically warm this season, as they try to let love in, and filter negativity out. 



Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22)

Libra could actually benefit from the double Retrograde. This might be a good time for their true feelings to come out. This might even be a time to push Libra into a decisive position where they feel like they know what they want and actually go after it. Libra might not say what they think all the time, but they are certainly thinking something. Often or not their facial expressions or body language give it all away. Libra knows how to hold their tongue. Unless you've just pushed them over the edge, hit a soft spot and create a monster--Libra isn't going to strike. Libra would prefer to keep it cool, but in a relationship, this high level of non-chalance can get tasking. If you've kept your lover on the hook for too long, it is time to let them know where you stand futuristically.


Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21)

The effects of the double Retrograde could have Scorpio in a good spot. They may be impulsed to switch things up, and start doing things in a way that works for them. Scorpio has been tolerate and dilligent for too long, it is time for them to break out. Caution can be issued at this time, regarding communication and alcohol. Scorpio may say or do a lot of things they chose not to remember, but this is the jealous, envious side of Scorpio coming out. Sometimes they just want to call a spade a a spade, and call people out on their shit. Scorpio works hard, and can't turn a blind eye to a faulty character. They simply have to gauge the moment and remember that somethings are best kept to ourselves. This is a problem Scorpio has no problems mastering when they are sober. 



Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21)

If the double Retrograde affects Sagittarius negativity, they will be at complete discomfort. Sagittarius is a sun baby, they like to go and be where it is warm and exciting. They don't always responsd well to the dull and predictable. Unless of course they are reminded of what a good job they are doing. A simple gesture of gratitude from a client, collegue or student can truly brighten the Sag's disposition, however they don't like to be without the things they need to feel happy. Venus in Retrograde could push you away from your lover, and not necessarily in a personal way, you just might need space. Sagittarius wants affection and attention but they don't know what to do or how to react when they get smothered by it. 



Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19

During this time of double Retrograde, Capricorn has to be careful that they don't get cold or depressed. Don't hide in work. Sometimes Capricorn just shrugs it off, but things really get to them and they often don't talk about it. This might be an opportunity for some of those things to come out, though, it could be very unlikely, as Capricorn will put themself second for a mate. They like to take care of people, and are happier when they have a partner in their life who gets them and wants the same things as them. Try to watch your communication and engage genuinely. You don't always have to say what's politely expected. Speak the truth. Say what is realy on your mind because you deserve to be heard and you deserve for your demands to be met--so start making them. 



Aquarius (January 20-Febuary 18)

 The worst case scenario, with the double Retrograde is that friendly Aquarius turns mean and inconsiderate. Aquarius can struggle with communications that go beyond the surface. Their great at talking about the world, what's happening in the city, their jobs and their workout rotinues, but they rarely talk about their feelings. Aquarius is loving, generous and gifted, but they don't always know how to handle depressed people. This is because Aquarius is always looking up, moving forward and onto the next goal. They can't relate to the wounded, necesarrily, and don't get why anyone wouldn't want to be here. Aquarius has to work on growing their aptitude for energy, and learning to communicate when necessary. Single Aquarius, don't ghost on the people you date, let them know why it didn't work, or tell them why you won't be seeing them again. Honesty might not be the most favored approch, but it is key. People respond well to what they know. Don't leave people on the hook. Don't leave people guessing.



Pisces (February 19-March 20)

The double Retrograde will affect Pisces, a sign that is usually too honest by default. This could result in some seriously poor communication. Pisces will say things stemmed from emotions, but not mean them at all. Then Pisces will feel horrible and want to apologize. Look before you leap little Fish, this is your pond, and you decide how you are going to swim in it. Stop looking to see how other people are making their way through the water, just focus on your own progress and be proud of it. It might not be number one, but it's pretty great, and the sonner you see that, the better off you will be. All the people in this world don't define you, you do. In relationships, really try to pick your battles. Don't get mad over little things or every little thing--don't take your mood out on your love. This level of negativity is going to turn people off. Lead with love instead of secretly wishing for it becaue that is the best color on you, and without question people will be attracted to you when you are dressed in love. Sometimes somethings doesn't look right, but you've got to give it a chance to know that is--get to know people. Don't rule out anything too soon. Some people may have left your life now, but as you know, you can never predict who is coming back.
