Misunderstandings, computer crashes, transportation delays. Yep, it's the first Mercury retrograde of the year, and it's here to make everything stable in your life go sideways. While seven signs will feel the effects of Mercury retrograde the most due to certain astrological factors, Aries, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius are the zodiac signs Mercury retrograde March 2019 will affect the least. Mercury begins its bajiggity backspin in Pisces on Mar. 5 and will continue to make things difficult for the majority of signs until Mar. 28.
Because Mercury is retrograde in a water sign, and all of the outer planets are hanging out in earth signs — according to astrologer Dru Ish writing for them. — this retrograde will turn your attention to your dreams and intuition. However, water and earth signs, as well as Virgo and Gemini (the moon is in these signs, which are ruled by Mercury), are going to have a tougher time seeing the silver lining.
"This can make us all a little emotionally anxious, on edge, feeling extra off, and needing to give ourselves time to calm down, to get things done, and exercise extra patience," The Dark Pixie Astrology noted on its website. On the other hand, fire and air signs Aries, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius will have an easier time navigating Mercury's backward boogie.
