Mercury, which has been retrograde since January 30th, is turning direct on February 20th/21st in Aquarius. The post-retrograde shadow known as retro shade begins then and lasts until March 13th.
So, what does it mean when Mercury goes direct?
A planet-changing motion is a potent phenomenon. Remember, Mercury has been out of its usual forward orbit for three weeks, so turning direct again will not be as easy as declaring "On your mark, get set, go!" and watching Mercury zoom out, Tarot cites. What really happens when a planet moves from retrograde to direct motion is more akin to waking up from a deep slumber. Mercury will need time to drink some cosmic coffee and fully regain consciousness.
Below is your horoscope when Mercury goes direct this year:
Aries (Ram): March 21–April 19
Your desire for intimacy will be met. However, it could be met with a tinge of coldness from friends or community members. Remember that you're the one with who you need to be wholehearted. Be sure to thank yourself for being willing to hold space for yourself.
Enough navel-gazing now, Aries – it’s time to turn your face back out to the world. Resume dating if you’re single or start looking at your existing relationship with optimism and hope. You’ve got this.
Taurus (Bull): April 20–May 20
Tensions from the last few weeks have reduced, giving you a release within your body. You'll feel a need for a sudden change of direction, no longer satisfied or comfortable with where you're at currently. You're wanting to break free of an outdated professional situation. Remind yourself that you have personal freedom.If you’ve been taking a serious look at your health over the last few weeks of Mercury retrograde, Taurus, now is the time to take action to improve matters.
Gemini (Twins): May 21–June 21
Creative blocks should start to melt away now that Mercury is no longer retrograde, Gemini. Get back to your favorite artistic hobbies such as writing or painting and explore ways in which you can let your emotions shine through.
Be clear with yourself about what exactly you have time and space for at the moment because you don't need the drama. If people come at you with their projections, then take a step back and let their frustrations sizzle out. Tread lightly before arguing back with those you love.
Cancer (Crab): June 22–July 22
Be inspired when it comes to your family life, Cancer. Stir things up and shake things around if that’s what it takes to make your family life happier or more robust. It’s a good time to decorate your home or to create a sanctuary space. Don’t just think about it or dream about it – get started on it now.
You've been struggling to keep your finances afloat lately, which is why this is an ideal time to take a hard look at your credit card bills. Once you gain control over your credit card debt, then you'll be able to keep your head above water and spend accordingly.
Leo (Lion): July 23–August 22
You're realizing that all the feelings you thought you had for an ex over the past few weeks have been nothing more than superficial. You don't want to proceed with the flirtation any longer but may convince yourself for one more late-night conversation with them for old-time's sake.
Mercury turning direct is like the Sun coming out again, Leo, so enjoy this refreshing feeling for all it’s worth. This is a very good time to start meeting new friends or showcasing your growing confidence, Astrology TV cites.
Virgo (Virgin): August 23–September 22
Money worries start to ease as Mercury turns direct in your finance zone, Virgo. You should find it easier than ever now to increase your income or to set up a creative or hobby-based side hustle.
The key is to take what you love and look at ways to create income from that – don’t do something you hate just because you think it will make you rich.
Libra (Balance): September 23–October 23
Your self-confidence may have taken a battering during the Mercury retrograde period, Libra, but now you’re emerging stronger than before.
Setting boundaries with those you care about is challenging, especially when you are not listening to your own rules. Be sure to create limits that you can adhere to and stick to in order to ensure that none of you are being taken for granted in your partnerships and relationships.
Scorpius (Scorpion): October 24–November 21
You probably feel as though you’ve been a bit out of it for the last couple of weeks, Scorpio, particularly when Mercury was retrograde in your spiritual zone.
Re-joining the real world may seem like a challenge now, so don’t be surprised if you feel like hunkering down and hiding. Get back out there gently, gradually, slowly. Don’t force it.
Sagittarius (Archer): November 22–December 21
Now that Mercury has turned direct again, use your joie-de-vivre and your sense of fun to reach out to others and create new connections. Join new groups, make new friends, find new people to debate with.
There has been a lot of chatter running wild in your social circle. Unfortunately, you are the main culprit behind spreading these rumors. It's time to own your part (without getting super defensive) in the gossip that's been spreading and acknowledge to your crew that you've helped to create drama.
Capricornus (Goat): December 22–January 19
Start to think strategically now about your career direction, Capricorn. You have ideals about where you would like to head, but you’ve always felt that the time isn’t right. Ask yourself: if not now, when?
Strip away the excuses and take concrete action now to head towards your long-term goals, faster and more positively than ever before.
Aquarius (Water Bearer): January 20–February 18
Your challenge now is to put your famous idealism into practice, Aquarius. You’ve spent the last few weeks of Mercury retrograde with a grand vision, but little idea of how to manifest it.
You've been rocking a new look, which you're on the fence about. Odds are, it's time to revise your keen fashion sense and dye your hair back to your natural color. Getting back to basics will allow you to find the right vibe and ensemble that is best for you, according to Hello Giggles.
Pisces (Fish): February 19–March 20
With Mercury now turning direct, you can rid yourself of the feelings of guilt, shame, or betrayal that came with Mercury retrograde.
Whatever trauma you have faced in the past, Pisces, there’s a feeling of freedom heading your way now. Use the inspirational, rational power of Mercury in Libra to shine a light where it’s needed most, and that includes your own unfounded fears and worries.
