Here are the 2016 Mercury retrograde dates to make your travel plans and other arrangements:

January 5 – 25 in Air sign Aquarius. Good for think tank, new ideas, and networking. Mercury is exalted in Aquarius, the best sign for Mercury.

April 28 – May 22 in Earth sign Taurus. Good to review, organize, and stay solid.

August 30 – September 21 in Earth sign Virgo. Mercury is comfortable in its rulership sign Virgo.

December 19 – January 8, 2017 in Earth sign Capricorn. Time to review and organize finances and legacies.

Traditionally in astrology, Mercury retrograde is a time of miscommunication, technology problems, and items lost or misplaced.

But Mercury retrograde during a Monkey year can be ideal to review, rethink, and redo. Monkey year begins on February 8, 2016 new Moon in Aquarius at 6:39 am PT.
