Mercury will turn retrograde at 29 degrees Pisces on March 5th. 0 degrees Aries starts a new cycle. Talk about retreating at the brink of a new beginning. I’m not too thrilled about this!
I don’t usually mention the other planets when I write these things but in this case, as you can see in the graphic, there will be a stellium in Pisces at this time, and a new moon in the sign on the next day.
I’m just going to say it, Mercury-ruled Gemini and Virgo is likely to be thrown for a loop with this. It’s not just because their ruling planet is turning retrograde. The stellium in Pisces hits these signs, hard. You know you feel when you’re lost? Ugh.
If you don’t have Gemini or Virgo in your chart, you’ll still be affected because guess what? You’re going to be dealing with people who do.
We rely on the Mercury-ruled signs to handle information. If they get some kind of Neptune brain flu, what the hell?
Mercury will turn direct on March 28th. The planet won’t reach 29 degrees Pisces and ingress into Aries until April 18th. Compassion is called for.
