How Mercury Retrograde Summer 2023 Ending Will Affect Your Zodiac Sign
Answers instead of questions? Groundbreaking.
The cosmos were definitely working overtime this summer. This was the first time in years that there was a Mercury and Venus retrograde happening simultaneously, which should *never* be allowed to happen again. With so many unfinished tasks and distractions, it’s been tough to take advantage of the productive vibes of Virgo season. Usually, this is the time of year to get your affairs in order, but since Mercury’s been retrograde since Aug. 23, getting organized has been virtually impossible. However, as Mercury retrograde summer 2023 ends, every zodiac sign will be gaining some long-awaited clarity.
Over the last few weeks, Mercury has been reversing through the mutable earth sign of Virgo, the sign of its rulership. While Mercury normally functions incredibly well in the sign of its domicile and exaltation, the slow-moving nature of the communication planet has been making it difficult to think critically, solve problems, and brainstorm. Although retrogrades give you an opportunity to reevaluate the plans and ideas you currently have, they can also make it difficult to make any significant progress. However, as Mercury begins to pick up speed once again, each sign will be met with answers instead of questions.
Here’s what every zodiac sign can expect as Mercury stations direct on Sept. 15:
Aries Zodiac Signs (March 20 - April 20)
On Sept. 15, Mercury will station direct in your sixth house, offering some clarity to how you organize your habits, obligations, and duties. If your daily life has been feeling out of sorts in recent weeks, expect some clarity to finally arise as Mercury gains speed once again. If there’s any new regimens you’re interested in implementing, now is a good time to incorporate some useful routines into your world.
Taurus Zodiac Signs (April 20 - May 20)
As Mercury stations direct, you’ll experience some important aha moments around your current hobbies, interests, and passions.

Boundaries are important now.
