Your zodiac sign's Mercury retrograde horoscope for January 30 - February 20, 2021, is here, and it will take place in the zodiac sign of Aquarius.

How will Mercury retrograde in Aquarius affect your zodiac sign's horoscope?

Mercury is the planet of communication, so when it is in retrograde it appears to move backward due to perspective illusion.

Symbolically forms of communication may be confusing, misunderstood, or delayed.


Communication can mean a lot of things like verbal, travel, electronic, contracts, etc.

When Mercury is in retrograde, it may be a time to be more careful, double-checking travel plans or contracts or an email before officially signing or sending.


This is not to say that communication should be avoided, communication is a necessary part of life, but snafus will be more likely, so take the extra time to ensure that there is a clear understanding.

Mercury will transit Aquarius during its retrograde and when it returns direct.

Aquarius rules the eleventh solar house of friendships and groups.

Communication amongst friends and within organizations will be most affected.

Misunderstandings will happen, but just be sure to put in the effort to clear things up or be reassuring.

This retrograde is also a good time to be more introspective.

With all of the frustration that may be surrounding your interpersonal world, it can be comforting to look inward and check-in with yourself.


Taking introspective time can also help you to navigate the external communication jumble in making sure you say what you mean and you mean what you say.

Of course, each zodiac sign is unique and affected by this retrograde differently.

Read on to see how Mercury retrograde will affect each zodiac sign, per astrology.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, your communication frustration may get you feeling pretty heated.

Try to not get too caught up in what goes wrong, although I know that’s easier said than done.

Take some deep breaths and give yourself some me-time.

Giving yourself space away from communication and turning inward can keep you level headed.


Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus, be cautious of your stubborn side during Mercury Rx.

I know you have a strong mind and you hold your own, but during this time of fogginess and mishaps, some flexibility and understanding are needed.

Remember, you aren’t giving in, you’re adapting to the situation.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini, you are ruled by Mercury, so this retrograde has you especially jumbled.

Communication is usually something that comes so easy to you, but the confusions are just pushing your energies inward.

Use this time to work on your inner communication, your relationship with yourself.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Don’t take misunderstandings too personally, Cancer.


This is just a weird time for communication.

Use your nurturing side to remedy any communication troubles when you come across them.

With some effort, you can reach clarity.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Smooth-talking Leo, your charms may not be as charming during this retrograde.

Things you say can be taken the wrong way or your confidence may come off as cockiness.

Use this time for some inner reflection.

Mercury is the god of communication as well as thinking, so lean towards the thinking at this time.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo, you are ruled by Mercury, so things feel especially backward for you at this time.

You may get intensely frustrated with the hiccups in communication, but you can get excited that now is a good time for some alone time and introspection.


You are already very thoughtful, Virgo, but sometimes external demands in your life take away from those moments of reflection.

Well, now is the time.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, energies around your friendships and other groups are feeling out of balance because of this Mercury Rx in Aquarius.

There may be misunderstandings, tiffs, or maybe you keep missing each other.

Now is a much needed time for you to focus on yourself, find some inner balance instead of putting so much of your energy into your external world.

Libra needs some Libra time.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio, you feel the urge to retreat into your own little world, and I don’t blame you.


The confusion surrounding communication will frustrate and potentially anger you.

Taking time to be by yourself will give you a much-needed break from that chaos, and it will give you a chance to reflect on your life.

Make new goals, figure out your feelings, or just be in the moment.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius, you may be used to your honesty sometimes being taken as harsh, but right now is really not the time to push your opinions where they are not needed.

Even friends who know you well may take what you say the wrong way at this time of communication kerfuffle.

If/when a misunderstanding does happen, take the time to clear it up.


Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, you love your own company better than anyone.

Now is the time to lean into that feeling.

Communication mishaps may need clarification, or it may just need time to recover and come back from.


Take this time for some reflection.

After all, it is a new year, and your season recently ended, where do you want to go from here?

Clue others in on what you’re thinking once Mercury is direct again.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, Mercury is in your house, messing with your things.

This may have you quite upset, at the very least frustrated.

Your friendships, organizations, even simple communication feels like they’re unraveling.

But they’re not, they’re just a bit muddied right now.

Communication just needs some extra care and effort to make sure that everyone is on the same page.

This too shall pass.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces, you rule introspection, and that is where Mercury is pulling you.


Mixups in communication can get you in your feels, but they can also be solved with some inward thinking.

Being as clear as you can be with yourself will translate better into the external world.
