When my browser decided to work at all, it took long breaks to display its power over me by reverting to the dreaded spinning wheel of death. If you, too, have noticed things seem more difficult this week, it's because Mercury began its backward boogie on Jul. 7, 2019, and it'll continue through Jul. 31, 2019. This planetary backspin affects each sign differently, and there are some things people born under the Aries zodiac sign should and shouldn't do during Mercury retrograde in July.

Get rid of all of that dark and twisty energy so you can go forth and slay like the boss you are when Mercury turns direct Jul. 31. But that's not all you need to know.
