Here we go -- again!

Mercury begins retrograde motion on October 21. During these pesky periods, which happen every three months or so, communications generally go haywire.

They last up to 24 days; it only seems longer as emails go astray, the cellphone battery is drained just when you’re expecting a crucial call, and so on. The usual advice for handling it all: Don’t start any new projects -- including a new job, big vacation or married life -- while Mercury is retrograde.

But what if you can’t put your life on hold until November 10? Suppose you’re offered a big promotion while Mercury is retrograde? Or must close on the purchase of your dream home?

You should at least try to stall signing any agreements, big or small, until mid-November. If that doesn’t work, negotiate a probation or provisional phase that extends a couple of weeks or more after Mercury goes direct. By that time you should know whether you want to make the arrangement more permanent. And what adjustments should be made.

Here’s some advice for negotiating Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio, as it relates to your Sun sign.

ARIES
Take a look at the inner landscape and see what you can see. Most likely there are some work habits or patterns that need to be broken and ideas you really should re-examine.

TAURUS
Want more from a co-worker? A business partner to pull their weight? Let the negotiations begin. Sharing at a deep level can open up communication and build trust.

GEMINI
Retrograde Mercury in your Sixth House can help you set strategies and investigate more efficient work methods. Patience may not be your strong suit, but it’s your best ally now.

CANCER
This is a highly romantic and creative transit. A workplace affair is not a good outlet, though! Instead investigate ways to make money that exploit your innate gifts.

LEO
This is an optimal time for a big cleanup. Purge your cell phone and email program of unnecessary messages, reorganize your office space. Create a clear space in which to nurture future growth.

VIRGO
So what’s your point? Make sure you say what you mean and mean what you say now. Don’t assume everyone understands you; ask questions and make sure.

LIBRA
Start tracking your spending and draw up a budget. You’ll find ingenious ways to save money and add to your bottom line, which will help with that big purchase down the line.

SCORPIO
Look into that exercise program, get a makeover or embark on some sort of self-improvement. It will lead to enhanced self-confidence in the future, which will help you move up the ladder.

SAGITTARIUS
Although honesty is still the best policy, play your cards close to your chest now. The less you reveal the better as you revise and refine your life plan. Let your intuition guide you.

CAPRICORN
This is a great time for networking -- but with a twist. Reach out to past contacts, friends and associates. Spitball ideas for future progress; the workable ones will surprise you.

AQUARIUS
Where are you on the ladder relative to your goals? This is a good time to reassess your career progress. Compose a new resume and draw up plans for a launch Mercury direct launch.

PISCES
Have you been hankering to learn a new language or skill for some time? Investigate new learning opportunities now. If your schedule is already packed, an online class might offer the flexibility you need.
