Du 9 September at 3 October 2022, Mercury retrograde for the third time in the year 2022. If your ears are in the same places as ours, we know that the retrogradation effect of this planet can bring its share of small upheavals in daily life, in particular for communications, the transportation, relationships. And it seems that, this year, the fact that Mercury retrograde explains a thousand things. As if that was kind of the logical excuse for everything… and the worst part is that it's not totally wrong! It is said that this “Retrograde movement” also affects the sex life of each of the astrological signs.
According to the definition, a retrograde movement is a retreat – therefore a displacement in the opposite direction to that normally taken – of a celestial body in relation to the most distant stars. In fact, the celestial body in question (the planet) does not really go in the opposite direction: it is a phenomenon of astronomical perspective.
In the case of the planet Mercury, its retrogrades never go unnoticed! We know that our horoscope will be turned upside down and that certain aspects of our life are likely to take up more space. But who says communication problems, says upheavals in your sex life!
The time has come to discover how exactly Mercury going retrograde affects your sex life, according to your astrological sign.
Aries (March 21 to April 20)
When Mercury retrogrades, the Aries person feels more emotional. Thus, she seeks more tenderness, with the person who shares her life, and her normally active sexuality can take the edge. She is nostalgic for the beginning of her relationship, when she talked for hours with her partner.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20)
Sexually speaking, during Mercury retrograde, Taurus people feel very creative. They want to explore avenues that have been little used until now: their heads are full of rather “hot” ideas! The sexual partners of Aries must therefore be receptive, because they struggle a little to express their desires.
Gemini (May 21 to June 21)
With their dominant character, the Gemini person knows what they want in life and that also applies to their sexuality. On the other hand, with Mercury in retrograde, it seems that she has less desire to "scatter" in the bedroom... Above all, she wants to feel the arms of her or her partner around her.
Cancer (June 22 to July 23)
Hmm, everything seems to indicate that Cancerians become more daring under the duvet when Mercury retrogrades… The person who shares their life may be delighted, but it might take them by surprise! If he is single, Cancer feels more seductive than ever.
Leo (July 24 to August 23)
With Mercury in retrograde, Leo needs a lot of relief. And having sex seems to be the last thing on his mind, even though he doesn't know why he feels this way! His impulsive reactions can lead to bedroom squabbles.
Virgo (August 24 to September 23)
If she is single during a period when Mercury is retrograde, the Virgo sign person has the wind in their sails! She wants to have fun, flirt and who knows, maybe even have a one-night stand. The time is perfect for him to learn to discover what makes him happy...

Scorpio (October 24 to November 22)
Scorpio isn't the type to find their sex life lacking in “spice”. However, with Mercury retrograde, he may be looking for a way to communicate his fantasies with the person who shares his life… and translate them into reality. This sign seems to have no limits!
Sagittarius (November 23 to December 20)
Whether we are talking about the process of seduction or the typical daily life of their love life, the Sagittarius person normally likes to take the lead. But now, with Mercury retrograding, she feels the desire to be submissive, in the bedroom, rather than being dominant!
Capricorn (December 21 to January 20)
A cozy little nest where Capricorn likes to rest, his bedroom can suddenly displease him, when Mercury retrogrades! Suddenly, he seeks to revamp the decor and very creative ideas for furniture or accessories that can spice up his sex life cross his mind...
Aquarius (January 21 to February 19)
The Aquarius person may never admit it to themselves, but movies and erotic novels, they like it! If your sweetheart is listening, Mercury retrograde is the best time to come up with crazy ideas, like bedroom role-playing.
Pisces (February 20 to March 20)
Pisces don't like to wait for others to flourish. This is especially true on the professional level, but with Mercury going retrograde, it also influences their sexuality... In short, to satisfy their impulses, the Pisces person can understand that you are never better served than by yourself. !See this post on Instagram
