During the Mercury retrograde you have to be aware that anything you do will be reviewed. Wait until the planet goes direct for making a final decision or to do anything new. Don’t sign contracts, buy automobiles or appliances, or make major investments or repairs during Mercury retrogrades. Get a guarantee and double check everything. Travel plans and communications will be affected, so double-check appointments and schedules.

Mercury retrograde is a great period to get more rest, to work on a project that you already started, or for renovations and completions. Since it is in Cancer, it would be good to take time to read, journal and daydream—you may feel super sensitive. Themes of family, home and compassion could arise.
