You're in the middle of a complicated situation. Challenge the generally held opinion if you have facts to back you. Oversee and manage the outcome, and the sooner done, the better. Get terms in writing.
Travel and adventure call to you today and tomorrow. Each new advance presents new challenges. Things get stirred up. Don't push or be pushed. Physical challenges arise. Gather advice and ponder it. An elder can show the way.
Long-distance connections come together. Confusion clears. It's easier to keep track of the money. It's easier to get your message out. Assume responsibility. Lots of healing energy. Let your partner take the lead. Acknowledge the other people on your team, as well. Assert your opinion without clashing with an authority figure. Emotional release provides freedom.

The smallest planet in the Solar System, Mercury's closest to the Sun and completes an orbit every 88 days.
Mercury's retrograde lasts about three weeks, and occurs three times a year. Mercury's the planet that rules over communication, intellect, education, commerce and transportation. Retrograde effects include slowing, blocking, jamming and breakdowns. Listening and reviewing gets more important, as the message can become garbled, lost or delayed.
Mercury's the ruling planet for both Gemini and Virgo, so people born under these signs can be more affected by Mercury Retrograde.

Mars is the action planet, named for the warrior god in Roman mythology. It takes the fourth planet about 687 Earth days to orbit the Sun.
When Mars goes retrograde, which it does every 2 and a half years (usually for two months), thought takes precedence over overt actions, and pressure can become internalized. Stress can lead to health problems, and impulsiveness can lead to arguments and accidents. Release emotion with exercise. It's a good time to take it slower, review the plans, and re-define goals and methods. Avoid risky business, for love or money. New endeavors can stall or may not go as intended, so it's better to choose a launch date after Mars goes direct.
Mars retrograde affects each person individually according to their natal chart, but in general, Mars rules Aries and Scorpio, so these signs are especially affected.
