Mercury Retrograde is never very much fun, and as a Gemini it always seems to affect me more because Mercury is my ruling planet. But this time Mercury is going retrograde in spiritual Pisces, and I’m totally OK with that!
Mercury goes retrograde in Pisces from this Saturday, Feb. 23 through Sunday, March 17. And the thing is, Mercury Retrograde at its best is a time to stop and think and rest and dream, and so is Pisces! So this sounds like a perfect combination to me.
Yes, there will still be troubles with technology and communications will go awry, but we tend to turn inward and communicate less anyway when Mercury is in Pisces.
So I guess my point is that fewer things will go wrong during this Mercury Retrograde simply because we will be doing fewer things to begin with.

Geminis are supposed to feel this retrograde most in the areas of work and career, so I’m going to make sure I don’t have any e-mail misfires on the job and that I’m not the one to break the copy machine!
Good luck everyone, study up and get ready for it!

It’s funny, I don’t have a ton of Pisces friends, and I’ve never dated one, either. So it must not be the most compatible match for my particular brand of Gemini. But that said, I am fully aware of Pisces’ power!
Pisces is the most compassionate sign of the zodiac, known for being dreamy and sensitive, with active imaginations. Some people think of this as a lazy sign, when you all you do is lie around and dream.
But resting and dreaming are quite different from being lazy, now aren’t they?
This month while the Sun is in Pisces is our chance to rest up before we being a new astrological cycle at the Spring Equinox. It’s important to take care of ourselves, and Pisces empowers us nourish our souls and regain strength before we begin again.
It’s normal to feel more spiritual during this time, and its easier to tap into your intuition. So rather than thinking of this as a lazy time, think of it as a powerful period to take care of yourself and others who need a tender Pisces touch.

Karma is a tricky topic to write about, because it’s kind of esoteric and hard to explain. But its basic premise is that you get what you deserve, right? So when Saturn, the planet of karma, turns retrograde, it means our personal karma comes into question.
Saturn goes retrograde next week, on Monday, Feb. 18, and it will spin backward for the next five months. During this time we’ll be more inclined to think about who we are, what we’ve done, who we want to be and where we want to go.
We may worry more about the things we’ve done and the consequences, and so we will likely be more interested in taking steps toward self-improvement.
And the good news is we’ll have strict Saturn’s discipline to follow through on the things we discover we need to change. This powerful planetary stuff, right?
Maria DeSimone wrote a great article about Saturn Retrograde for Tarot.com, which explains the nitty gritty of this transit. It holds even more weight this time because Saturn is going retrograde in the intense sign of Scorpio, too!
Study up! It’s time to get to work on yourself!
