My eye on the sky.
Mercury turns retrograde at 19 degrees Pisces on February 23rd. I am far from being a Mercury Rx alarmist, however these periods are not created equally. This Rx period will be particularly challenging and potentially maddening, especially for Mercury-ruled Gemini and Virgo.
The reason is because Mercury will be in Pisces the whole time. Gemini and Virgo are not keen on having their minds running backwards in the fog. You want to receive a crisp fax. Instead you get a vague message written in disappearing ink. When you tell someone about it, you may or may not be believed!
Also note that when Mercury turns retrograde @ 19 Pisces, Mars is at 17 Pisces These planets will collide 18 Pisces, right away.
We’re talking about people who are angry and don’t know it. We’re talkin’ sneaky, misguided attacks, purposeful brainwashing / gaslighting and the like. It’s entirely possible that you mind (Mercury) fuck (Mars) yourself, so I highly recommend you find an positive outlet for this energy.
For example, you can direct your imagination to serve others. You can be driven (Mars) by compassion (Pisces). You can communicate with sensitivity and you can pray.
You can also transcend your mental confusion. You can escape it, but this is rarely a strong suit for Mercurial types which is why I expect a soupy mess!
Just remember that Pisces has the potential for self-undoing. If you find yourself indulging in this, head in the other direction!
Also, remember the old adage, “Never try to reason with a drunk”! Odds are you’re going to run into a lot of them.
