Mercury In Signs Astrology
Mercury can affect people differently depending on how fast it was moving when the person was born. Also, Mercury in signs can go into something called ‘retrograde’ which means that it slows down. This makes it look like it is moving backward.
Usually, planet Mercury in signs helps people communicate better and think faster. But, if you were born when Mercury was in retrograde, then you may have problems stringing words or ideas together. However, no matter when you were born, occasional retrograde can affect you. Also, Mercury through the 12 zodiac signs shows how it influences your communication skills.
