Four signs will be "shaken": who will be most affected by the last Mercury retrograde of the year

Some signs will feel devastated and tired

Once again, we have unpleasant news from astrologers - another period of Mercury retrograde has come. This is a time of disappointment, difficulties, setbacks, delays in business, and emotional swings.

Astrologers have determined which signs will be susceptible to retrograde influence at the end of the year. The last Mercury retrograde of the year began in Capricorn on December 13 and will last until January 2, 2024. This period can lead to a halt in progress, as Mercury retrograde often revives past problems and encourages reflection and nostalgic illusions. Given Capricorn's connection to discipline and career, the December retrograde will have a significant impact on professional life.


For Gemini, the impact of retrograde is always very noticeable, as this sign is ruled by Mercury. This retrograde offers a great opportunity to consider and solve certain problems that you have been putting on the back burner for a long time.

The situation will get worse on December 23, when Mercury moves into your seventh house, the zone of partnership. The transition can lead to confusing dynamics in your relationship. There will be misunderstandings, conflicts, and showdowns. You may unexpectedly cross paths with an ex-partner during this phase.


Mercury is your ruling planet, so get ready for a strong retrograde influence. This celestial event often heralds a period of introspection and personal growth for you.

The winter retrograde cycle begins in your fifth house, which rules love, romance, and self-expression. You may find yourself revisiting past relationships or passions and even immersing yourself in nostalgic moods. However, the scenario will change significantly when Mercury goes retrograde in Sagittarius on December 23, raising the emotional stakes. This phase can lead to misunderstandings in your family, potentially creating a tense atmosphere.


The upcoming holiday season calls for a careful approach to finances, as Mercury retrograde will affect your monetary stability. This cycle begins in your second house, which is closely associated with material possessions and a sense of security.

If you find yourself using money as a means to bolster your confidence, it's the perfect time to reassess unhealthy financial habits that have been linking your self-esteem to your bank account. It is also advisable to avoid impulsive decisions about your appearance.


The retrograde begins in your first house and will bring with it the typical problems of failure, inconvenience, and confusion. During this period, try to avoid excessive introspection.

Instead, this is a time to be flexible. Not every aspect of your life needs a rigid, long-term plan. Sometimes you can just enjoy the moment. As Mercury moves into your 12th house of solitude and spirituality, you may find yourself more self-absorbed than usual during the holiday season.
