The first Mercury Retrograde of the year will last from 9th February to 16th March. Since Mercury is all about ruling over technology, communication, and travel, a Mercury Retrograde does away with all that.
Whenever this planet starts moving in reverse, every sphere of its rule gets frayed. And this affects our zodiacs in many different ways.
Let’s see how this Mercury Retrograde is going to affect our zodiacs, and how we can deal with it.
There might be several rumors afoot in this period, and you would need to make sure that you have the correct information at hand. Also, this might be the best time for you to get on board with something from the past- be it a plan or project, and see it through this Mercury Retrograde.
Your tech-sphere would find itself heavily supported by Mercury, while you also would be able to reconnect with your old posse. Take the time out to be with them, as they might help you deal with issues at work or in the private sphere of existence.
You might find yourself unavailable to seek a way out through this mess that Mercury has created. But there is a solution- instead of looking at the bigger picture just yet, try looking for smaller pictures. This means break your large jobs into tiny little ones. Also, you might find some friction with someone who is extremely powerful and important- so you need to navigate that carefully.
Don’t run your mouth too much this Mercury Retrograde, it might not bode well for you. There is a time and place for everything. And the present situation calls for caution and brevity. So look before you leap and keep those brave words for the next month.
This Mercury Retrograde is going to mess up with your ability to navigate between both love and work at the same time due to the added stress on both. In your love life, you need to be very careful as to how you use your trust when there is a possibility of an old flame coming back to your life. In your professional sphere, try hiring someone who knows the ins and outs of the legal system to glance over your documents.
If you think your relationship isn’t going in the direction that you hoped it would, don’t explode. Sit with the person and talk it out. Arrive at a resolution without being overly aggressive. And, if an ex tries to come back into your life, you need to gauge their intentions before allowing them in.
Things are going to spiral out of control and you might need to ask for support from people who are right for the job. Your relationships might hit some rocky surfaces, so you need to make sure that you have it in yourself to control them to the best of your abilities.
Your passion would be better suited to a project of creativity rather than simply igniting an old feud with someone. Mercury is making you extra, and you need to stop being so gullible. Also, you might try changing your wardrobe to suit your present mood.
Your home will make you angry, so very angry about everything. So you would be better off going on a self-care schedule, or simply trying to renovate your house. Anything to help you control that anger, isn’t it?
Communication always gets jammed during a Mercury Retrograde. So if you want people to understand what you are saying, exactly how you are saying it, you first need to be honest. And then be diplomatic about the entire situation which will help you empathize with the other person- only then will they understand your point of view.
You might find finances getting a little tight as the days go by. Also, communication might be frayed with your colleagues and technology might give up. You need to maintain a tight rein over your finances before you do anything else. This Retrograde should be used to introspect about your own life.
Think before you speak; look before you leap. That’s all you need to remember for this February-March Mercury Retrograde.
This Mercury Retrograde won’t be too hard if you remember to be flexible and move with the flow. The more you resist, the harder it will be for you.
