Work Relationships Become a Real Challenge

Maybe an angry manager and an annoying co-worker is something normal, even when Mercury is not retrograde in the sign of career. That’s life!

But, from January 8th until January 25th, it seems that all the bosses and mangers become angry, with or without motive. And dealing with such a difficult boss is stressful and affects your work efficiency. So, better try to don’t make the wrong assumptions and to never meet him without a plan.

What about the annoying co-workers? Well, if possible, the best thing to do is to avoid them. Set clear boundaries, try to be understanding, but don’t allow them to ruin your day. Take e break when you need it and do things on your own!

Mercury retrograde for you

So, we’ll show, for each sign, the areas of life where is better not to risk, but to remain calm and to avoid, if possible, any crucial decision.

If you are Capricorn, Mercury retrograde in your own sign, for seventeen days, makes you look like a hasty and irritable temper. You’re often in a hurry, with or without reason. And this is quite unusual for a Capricorn, sign ruled by Saturn, master of time.

If you are Aquarius, Mercury retrograde brings some days of loneliness. It’s quite difficult to make friends in this period. So, be careful what you say and what you do and avoid ruining relationships and friendships!

If you are Pisces, collective projects and group activities are not working properly. Also, this is not the best time to think about the future and to develop long-term plans.

If you are Aries, there is a risk find yourself in some awkward situations, in public! Also, you must remember that from January 8th until January 25th is not possible to get a raise or a promotion at work.

If you are Taurus, stay home! The travels, especially those abroad, can bring all sorts of trouble. Bad news, also, for Taurus students: Mercury retrograde can affect your intellectual capacity.

If you are Gemini, wait no inheritance or expensive gifts, with Mercury retrograde transiting your 8th house! It is better to retain from spending, because there is a risk to take bad financial decisions.

If you are Cancer, you can expect relationship problems. So, you better open up the channels of communication between you and your partner and begin to focus on the good things.

If you are Leo, the work environment will be way to tense. Sleep well every night, maintain healthy eating habits, drink more water and limit your vices – your body needs extra care, during Mercury’s retrograde period of time.

If you are Virgo, your creativity will suffer. Mercury is the ruler of your zodiac sign, so his retrograde motion will affect your life more than others’. Your love life will be his favourite target.

If you are Libra, you will probably argue your parents and other relatives (especially the oldest family members: grandparents, uncles, aunts, even older brothers and sisters). Also, your fertility suffers and there not so much chances to conceive a baby right now.

If you are Scorpio, your colleagues or your schoolmates and even your neighbours seem to you, suddenly, extremely annoying. It will be very difficult for you to avoid quarrels with them.

If you are Sagittarius, be very careful with your money! Stop buying stuff you don’t need, avoid impulse buying and don’t let yourself fooled by marketing! Otherwise, you’ll spend in these two weeks and a half more than in the last two months.
