Amongst the most major of the workplace dos and don'ts of Mercury retrograde: do give yourself extra time to offset technological and/or travel snafus; don't sign new contracts; do have patience. But this year's final Mercury retrograde takes place during Scorpio season, so things are going to be on even shakier ground than normal — after all, Scorpio is a mysterious, sometimes unpredictable sign. There are some zodiac signs whose careers will be affected the most by Mercury retrograde, and those signs may want to know what to expect. While there are some potential pitfalls to watch out for, a few signs actually have positive outcomes projected for the final Mercury retrograde of the year.
"Mercury will station retrograde on October 31, 2019 at 11:42 a.m. ET in the watery sign of Scorpio," astrologer Linda Furiate tells Bustle. "Mercury will begin its forward movement on November 20, 2019 at 2:12 p.m. ET."
What that means is that the first few weeks of November will be a prime time for reflection, processing, and otherwise taking a step back to regroup after the last few months. Since Mercury retrograde emphasizes reflection over progress, it's actually a great little built-in break in the astrological calendar to help us reset and gather energy for what's next. Read on to find out which signs have the most to look forward to at work during this time.
