What Each Sign Should Expect From The Last Mercury Retrograde Of 2020

Mercury will be retrograde in the sign of Scorpio beginning October 13th up until November 3rd which will bring a lot of dynamic moments. Mercury will retrograde back into the sign of Libra on the 27th, giving us an opportunity to redo and revisit some of the things that were left unfinished in September. We will feel a lot of pressure during this transit as Mercury deals with Saturn once it returns to Libra during the second part of its journey. It will be hard to get information and to effectively communicate in that time. Mercury in Cardinal sign facing off with other Cardinal planets in unfavorable aspects will once again remind us to be patient. Luckily, Mars will not have a great impact on Mercury this time around, but we are still prompted to take things slow and to be extra careful with what we say and do. We have the Venus transit in Libra to look forward to on the 7th, adding some benefic influence on Mercury as we close in on November 3rd.
