The teleconferencing signal gets lost, or your phone decides to reboot for no reason whatsoever. Contacts may also be lost, causing embarrassment when you need to get in touch with friends or colleagues. Back everything up and think through your plans thoroughly. You hate disorder, so this can be an ugly scenario for you, Virgo. As your ruler, Mercury being retrograde feels like a betrayal from within. The things you can normally count on to get you through your day - order, routine, etc.
Without organization, reliability, and careful analysis, what are your options? Lean into your mutable sign's adaptability and your earth sign's knack for staying grounded.

Now what?! The way you're used to communicating social media, text, phone, etc. Since negotiations of all kinds can also be thrown off, pay close attention to contracts and agreements. All of the old friends, former coworkers, and exes appearing now can be good or bad news depending on how you ended things the first time. As a fixed sign, you don't really enjoy the ups and downs that life can throw your way.
You're not going to be first in line to ride the Mercury retrograde rollercoaster, but if you have no choice, you're resourceful enough to take each curve as it comes. You're also wise enough to know that even though it may be unpleasant, it has to end sometime. Patient Scorpio can endure almost anything yes, even giving up that beloved sense of control as long as you know it will stop eventually. This retrograde cycle gets you where it really hurts, Sagittarius: your ability to go, go, go.

Mercury retrograde is notorious for messing with anything that helps get you where you need or really want to go. Bikes, buses, cars, planes, and trains can experience mechanical failures and other general difficulties, resulting in lost time and missed connections. Public transportation, traffic, and travel apps can be hit or miss, so make alternate plans and be prepared to slow down for once. Uh oh, progress has slowed to a halt and your master plan has hit a snag. You'd rather do just about anything than sit there twiddling your thumbs when there's real work to be done. Having to depend on other people like the IT guy to finish their job before you can restart yours is excruciating.
Plus, as a cardinal sign, you're used to taking the reins and doing it yourself, so not being in control of your own success or failure drives you nuts. Find some zen as you press reset. As the high-tech junkie and gadget guru of astrology, this retrograde cycle is a particularly annoying time for you. Luckily, you're an outgoing innovator who likes a challenge, so you may come out of Mercury retrograde with some excellent new contacts or skills to help you get ahead.
Making adjustments and adapting is everything right now, and you excel at it. Your intuition is usually on point, Pisces, but during Mercury retrograde your guesses and "feelings" are just off. With your psychic and intuitive abilities out of whack, the mix-ups that can result leave you feeling confused and out of sorts. After all, if you can't trust your gut, what can you trust? Escape, whether to your happiest of daydreams, favorite secluded beach, or beautifully curated Instagram feed, won't be easy right now either.
This troubling time will require all of your creative abilities to find real solutions. For you, intense Scorpio makes for a great match because they approach relationships with the same level of caution that you do. According to Lang, you two will bring out the best in each other. Finally there's your opposite sign, Capricorn. Since you two are both very goal-oriented, this pairing can make for quite a powerful couple. Leos are not only passionate, but they generally lead with their heart.

Then there's Libra, who is charming and full of social grace. So it makes for a good match long-term. Virgo can be highly analytical, and tends to attract soulmates who can help them stay grounded and worry-free.
Taurus has a stable and balanced approach to life. Because of this, you two complement each other really well. Since you're an Earth sign, you'll also appreciate Capricorn's ambition and desire for structure. Libra is the sign associated with partnership and connection, but will also need a good balance of independence within a relationship. Because of this, Gemini makes the perfect match for you.

Capricorn also makes for a solid partner because they're very grounded and stable. You like supporting one another and will help each other achieve your goals. Although Taurus is your opposite sign, Lang says that many Scorpio-Taurus partnerships are successful. Sagittarius loves their independence, but they can also be quite generous in relationships. Yet, they tend to be slow to make a commitment. Because of that, Aries makes for your perfect match. Your other fellow Fire sign, Leo will make for a fun partner who can also give you the stability you need.
