Below you can read about the way this specific retrogression will affect each one of the 12 astrological tribes:
The Lake – For those Born Between March 14 – April 12
Mercury, planet of socializing and communication, is retrograding in your astrological House of Communication. This is like a “double affect” of Mercury going “off” upon you. Everything to do with communication, thinking, speaking and socializing is up to lots of mistakes. Most of the mistakes are going to be just funny little ones: little misunderstandings, saying the wrong things, appearing for a meeting in the wrong time. as long as you apply humor to the situation – it is all well. But in other situations – as in your business, specialy trying to advertise it or giving lectures – you should really double check everything before you say something, publish something or send on the “send” button.

The Flame – For those Born Between April 13 – May 13
Mercury is doing its retrogression this time in your Astrological House of Fortune. This mean that till June 11th you should really double-check every financial move you make. Think before investing or buying something. Read the little letters. Make sure you have got the details right – and if possible postpone important decision till after the retrogression ends. Mars is also in close proximity to Mercury making it a bit difficult to stop and think before doing things and this situation can lead to hastiness, especially to do with money – so do what you can to cool yourself down before doing important moves.

The Key – For those Born Between May 14 – June 14
The Sun and Mars are both in your astrological realm, the realm of the Key, blessing you with much strength and lots of awareness and ability to do. Pay attention that Mercury is also there – in your astrological realm – making its retrogression. Try to stick to the side of doing and being practical, and try not to go into endless thinking about things and to over-analyzing. If there are projects that have already started – continue them and do not re-think them, for that can take you a few steps backwards.

Exchange – For those Born Between June 15 – July 15
Mercury’s retrogression has little affect upon you this time, almost none. However – the planet that does have a special and positive effect upon you these days is Venus.

It makes you tenderer and allows you to radiate something warm to your surroundings. For ladies – Venus touch makes us more feminine and allows us to reconnect to the fountain of beauty, reminding us the secret of beauty and love – both starting from within and then radiating outwards.

Remember to explain yourself well, not to get too heated. Give attention and love to your family members and try to do exciting things together – taking Mars’ energy out in a productive way instead of a destructive one. Things will be simpler in a few weeks! Stick in there! Till then taking time doing things you love to do – dancing, hearing music, painting and o on – can really sooth your emotions and take you away from the emotional swamp you might be in.
