Mercury’s first retrograde of 2020 takes place from February 16th to March 9th in Pisces. So don’t be surprised if your brain turns to sugary slush then trickles right out of your head during this period! Mercury is already a bit of a goner in whimsical Pisces, the line between facts and fantasy being rather blurred. This ain’t so good for staying on the ball and you’re much more likely to be late, then add insult to injury by daydreaming absentmindedly out the window during classes and board meetings. Maybe that’s a good thing… You shouldn’t believe most of what you hear anyway, it’ll mostly be a load of twaddle. The truth is in there somewhere but you’ll have to use your intuition and your imagination to actually figure it out!
Mercury retrograde in Pisces makes this a tricky period for travel, for signing important papers or for tallying up the books. Leave left brain activities for April. But it’s a gorgeous time for creativity and romance, for fine-tuning your dreams, for doing your most inspired work yet and for putting the finishing touches on a glamorous project. Pisces is pretty big on forgiveness too, so maybe this is the golden moment to forgive and forget, meditate, free your heart from old hurts and to let bygones be bygones. A more spiritual approach will serve you best now, water under the bridge’n all…
As for romance? You’ve hit the jackpot! Shy little Mercury retrograde in Pisces is fabulous for romance. Pisces worships the very ground love walks on and a bit of poetry and a smile might be just what you need to take the edge off bumping into that ex or the guy/gal you used to fancy… Indeed, there’s quite a high likelihood of that now that Mercury is retracing his steps! Old lovers return and so do old fantasies and daydreams along with a much needed second pass at making your dreams a reality.
