Most people's mistake when it comes to Mercury retrograde is getting frustrated when their forward momentum is thwarted. That's because Mercury retrograde is a time for thinking back, rather than moving forward; it's why all your exes seem to pop out of the woodwork during this time and "nothing goes right" when you try to accomplish a task. Mercury rules communication and technology, so when the planet stations retrograde, our communication skills tends to falter. Regardless of your sign, you might feel a struggle to articulate yourself effectively during these three weeks, which is bound to cause some stress. The best way to get through it, though, is to roll with the punches; don't try to force forward motion or make big choices about the future during this time. Use it instead as a time to look inward and process the last few months.
