Routine arrangements have a nasty habit of going haywire as Mercury turns retrograde in your sign. Something that you can usually do with your eyes closed may become an unexpected problem, or a well-tried system may break down for no good reason. The more wedded you are to your routine, the more trying today's events will be. You may also have to cope with a colleague or employee whose mind isn't on their job.
You may have to forget about following pre-arranged plans today when they start to come apart at the seams as Mercury turns retrograde. For instance, if you were going to meet a friend they may ring up at the last minute and change all the arrangements, or you might plan a trip to the cinema only to discover that the film you wanted to see is no longer being screened. It's irritating but it isn't the end of the world, so try to go with the flow.
You're in a very excitable and jumpy state as Mercury turns retrograde, so beware. You need plenty of stimulus and variety today, and if you don't get it you'll try to create it. The trouble is that you may well cause havoc in the process, because right now you've got such a strong desire to kick over the traces and shock everyone. So watch it when talking to anyone who's very straitlaced!

Someone's brain is working so fast that you can barely keep up with their thought processes as Mercury turns retrograde. They might be talking much more quickly than normal, hopping from subject to subject, or hatching lots of clever ideas. It's fun to be with this person at first but their company could soon start to grate, because it's hard to relax while they're so buzzy and hyped up.
As Mercury turns retrograde, the more bored or fed up you feel today, the greater the likelihood of spending money to entertain yourself. And you won't be content with a quick trip round the supermarket or buying some petrol, either. Instead, you'll want to splash out on all sorts of impulse buys, whether you need them or not. Try to limit the damage if you're supposed to be saving your money rather than spending it.
There's no knowing what a certain person will get up to today as Mercury turns retrograde. All you can be sure of is that they'll take you by surprise and may even shock you in some way. Do your best to take things as they come and not get all flustered by this person's antics, especially if you suspect that they're being deliberately controversial in order to wind you up. They'll soon stop when they realize they aren't getting a rise out of you.
It's important to vary your routine today, or you'll quickly get bored and restless as Mercury turns retrograde. This is especially true if you're doing something very mundane and mechanical, because you'll end up wanting to scream. Mind you, there could be some hitches that will liven things up a little, such as a piece of technology breaking down or a colleague misbehaving.

Not everything goes according to plan today as Mercury turns retrograde. Bear that in mind if you've arranged to meet someone because they might not turn up at the right place or time. Even if they do appear, they could be in a weird mood or suggest doing something that you don't fancy. Speaking of fancying, you might meet someone who's sexy but slightly off-putting at the same time. Maybe that's the big attraction?
It's a disruptive day and it looks as though there isn't much you can do about it as Mercury turns retrograde. So try to keep calm if arrangements start to unravel, someone lets you down or nothing goes right. There could also be a difficult experience with someone who's older or more powerful than you, perhaps because you feel very rebellious if they want you to carry out their orders. Be careful because it isn't a good day to rub people up the wrong way.
Don't believe everything you hear as Mercury turns retrograde, because someone may be deliberately trying to get a rise out of you. Maybe they're making statements that are designed to make you blow your top, especially if they don't really mean what they're saying. Will you give them the satisfaction of rising to the bait or will you manage to play it cool? There will also be problems over what constitutes the truth.
There's a difference of opinion today between you and someone over what you both think is worth spending money on. You have very different viewpoints as Mercury turns retrograde and there's so much strength of feeling that you're both tempted to dig your heels in and refuse to back down. But where will that get you? Don't feel compelled to do something outrageous or controversial simply to make your point. It really isn't worth it!
You'll need all your patience when dealing with someone as Mercury turns retrograde. They're being contrary and awkward, and ready to argue the toss with you at every turn. But hang on a minute. What makes you so sure it's all the other person's fault and that you're entirely innocent of all charges? Perhaps you're also being rather disruptive or tricky at the moment, even though you don't like to admit it to yourself?
