Mercury Retrograde Effects:
The first round of Mercury madness for 2020 descends upon us, starting in water sign Pisces. With Pisces, we can get stuck in the fog, struggle with focus, and feel scattered. Imagination runs strong, and we can get lost in daydreams and fantasies. This is great if you have nothing to focus on, but we always do! So we have to work harder at trying to stay tethered to reality and not get lost in the whimsy.
Pisces is a compassionate sign requiring a gentle touch, and with Mercury retrograde, we can be too sensitive, to easily wounded, and require more boundaries so we’re not taken advantage of. Some can lack sensitivity at all and act in cruel ways. Try to have healthy boundaries to protect yourself, but also be mindful of others and what they need.
Pisces is a highly intuitive, spiritual sign, so focusing on spiritual pursuits and strengthening your intuition can be a good thing to do during the retrograde in Pisces. When the fog sets in and uncertainty is strong, your intuition can act as a guide. Just make sure what you’re listening to is your intuition and not the Devil in disguise!
Mercury retrogrades for the last few days in air sign Aquarius, and this is the start of Mercury retrograde impacting the air signs. In Aquarius, we can feel extra rebellious, wanting to push boundaries and try things in new ways. We can crave change and feel restless, making us act impulsively and impatiently. But this does us no good, so try to keep that energy under control and focus it productively.
Aquarius rules friends, groups, and the masses, so we can experience issues with any of these. Friends can have a falling out, or old friends can come back; some may leave groups and causes while others pick up old ones and reconnect with old groups; and some may come before the masses and fall while others triumph, some may fade into the crowd, and some crowds may get raucous and need a calming influence.
Aquarius is independent and innovative, the inventor and always thinking outside of the box. With Mercury retrograde, we may think a little TOO far outside of the box and need to be more realistic, or we may struggle with unconventional ideas and have to be more open.
The retrograde begins at 12 degrees Pisces, so those of you Pisceans born February 28th – March 4th can feel the start of the retrograde most. The retrograde ends at 28 degrees Aquarius, so those of you Aquarians born after February 16th can feel the end of the retrograde most.
