Mercury retrograde will have a profound impact on cosmic energy until 25 April according to an expert astrologer. Yasmin Boland says that 'April is hugely significant' due to the retrograde and New Moon Eclipse that took place recently.

Boland added: "On April 21, we have a once-every-14-years alignment between Jupiter, the planet of plenty, and the planet of change, Uranus - so big shifts are possible!"

Speaking to the Express, she recommended harnessing the powerful energy shift by thinking about where you would like to go in life and taking the steps needed to get there. "Mercury retrograde can bring travel and communications issues," Boland cautioned. "But don't think of it as only difficult or annoying."

Boland explained: "It's also a time of second chances when you can redo, rethink, revisit, revise, revamp and repair."

Boland has some words of advice for all star signs during this time.

Aries: 21st March - 19th April: "Mercury is retrograde in your 'me, me, me zone' - it's all about self and appearances," said Boland. "This invites you to rethink and revamp your personal look and how you present yourself to the world."

Taurus: 20th April - 20th May: "Mercury is retrograde in your 'fear zone'," added Boland. "Time to work through your old fears and reflect and reconsider aspects of your spiritual life (or lack thereof!)."

Gemini: 21st May - 20th June: "Mercury is retrograde in your 'hopes and dreams zone', and is also influencing your social life," said Boland. "Re-evaluate your wishes and goals - and the people you associate with."

Cancer : 21st June - 22nd July: "Mercury is retrograde in your 'career zone' and influencing your public image," said Boland. "Reassess your professional path, correcting course if necessary."

Leo: 23rd July - 22nd August: "In your 'travel, philosophy, and higher learning zone', this Mercury retrograde is a period to rethink your beliefs, educational pursuits, or plans related to long-distance travel," noted Boland. "Also revisit favourite places."

Virgo: 23rd August - 22nd September: "Mercury is retrograde in your eight houses of 'intimacy and shared resources'. Expect second chances to do with sex and money," said Boland.

Libra: 23rd September - 22nd October: "In your seventh house of 'love and partnerships', this Mercury retrograde is a key time to reassess your personal and professional relationships," said Boland. "Old lovers can reappear!"

Scorpio: 23rd October - 21st November: "Falling in your 'daily life zone', this retrograde urges you to reorganise your day-to-day life and habits, aiming for efficiency and increased well-being," said Boland.

Sagittarius: 22nd November - 21st December: "Mercury is retrograde in your 'fun zone', relating to creativity, romance, and children," added Boland. "It's an invitation to rethink your sources of fun, romance, creativity and relationships with kids (your own or someone else's)."

Capricorn: 22nd December - 19th January: "Taking place in your 'home zone', this Mercury retrograde cycle is a time to reconsider your living situation and all your home and family relationships," advised Boland.

Aquarius: 20th January -18th February: "Mercury is retrograde in your 'communications zone', also influencing short trips," Boland said. "Re-evaluate how well you communicate and process information."

Pisces: 19th February - 20th March: "Mercury is retrograde in your 'cash and values zone.' It's urging you to review your financial strategies and personal values, to align more closely with your true priorities," finalised Boland.
