First Mercury Retrograde – February 17 through March 10, 2020

The first of three Mercury Retrogrades occurs on February 17, 2020 in the astrological sign of Aquarius, the Water Bearer. Even though it is in this sign for three days before changing to Pisces, there are pre-retrograde energy that precedes each Mercury Retrograde period that can also be affected by it. Aquarius rules the kinship of Man, and in a retrograde time, this Air sign can put relationships and friendships at risk. There could be the possibility of family squabbles, misunderstandings, and communication breakdowns. This will be short as the astrological sign changes as the Sun moves into Piscean territory less than two days later.

On Feb. 19th, the astrological signs will change and the end of this retrograde cycle will be under the planetary influence of the planet Neptune, ruling planet of Pisces, the fish. This planet represents the concept of being One with all Beings. Neptune’s influences accent the character traits of compassion, imagination, and idealism that Pisces possesses. Negative aspects of Neptune is that those ruled my this planet can be easily influenced by media and fantasy situations, and the self-undoing effects of drugs.

When Mercury is in the astrological sign of Pisces, the energy is considered to be already as if in retrograde. This is called being in its own determent. When you consider that Pisces – the dreamy, ethereal, untouchable daydreamer, is being challenged by analytical and communicative Mercury, then you have a stand-off between fact and fantasy. Mercury, an Air element planet, represents the mind and intellect and Pisces, a Water element planet, creates F-O-G, and that might be what you feel when attempting to conduct business or relationship connections during this time – you are in a FOG over what is really going on or what is being revealed to you. Do not entertain using products that can cause you to not discern fact from fantasy.

This is a time that you need clear and explicit information and instructions in order to proceed forward with clarity in making decisions and plans. Do not allow others to send you over the edge with the “what if’s” and other imaginations and flights of fantasy. If it looks like a duck…

The next Mercury Retrograde will occur June 18 – July 12, 2020.
