Mercury in Retrograde: 7 Tips To Help You Survive and Thrive

Updated by Meredith Raico

For those of you that don’t know, a Mercury Retrograde cycle begins tonight, March 23, 2018 and ends April 15, 2018. These retrograde periods occur multiple times a year when Mercury appears to spin backwards.

During these cycles, you’ll hear people blame everything from missed flights to dropped calls on this astrological phenomenon, as retrograde makes simple things like transportation and communication go haywire during these cycles .

Not everyone feels the effects of mercury being in retrograde, but those whose sign is ruled by Mercury (Virgo and Gemini) are likely to feel it more than others. This year people are feeling it even more because Mercury and Jupiter are both simultaneously in retrograde. So if you’re one of the many people that suffers during retrograde periods, fear not! You’re not alone.

Here are our top favorite products and tips for surviving and thriving during a Mercury or Jupiter Retrograde cycle.
