Mercury reenters Cancer

Mercury retrograde is challenging enough, but when the planet changes zodiac signs in its backwards journey then that could mean a total disavowal of what came before. Get out your contract, emails, and paperwork because someone may be trying to back out of a sale or agreement. Somewhere in all of that correspondence is the clause you need that will make him keep his word. But then again, there’s always the possibility that this person may be doing you a favor if the reason for his surprise about-face has to do with a deal gone bad or financial troubles. In any case you’ll want to get your facts straight so that you can navigate this situation with your hand firmly on the tiller and not grasping at straws. Signs most affected: Gemini, Cancer, Leo, and Virgo
