Mercury Stations Retrograde

Mercury stations retrograde Saturday 2/23 EST at 19 degrees of Pisces and will be in retrograde mode through 3/17. This retrograde period is more powerful due to its proximity to the upcoming Full Moon in Virgo on Monday as well as Mercury’s conjunction to Mars. In general when Mercury is retrograde there can be misunderstandings in communication but when Mars is involved people can have a short fuse, conversations can become more heated and the likelihood of passive aggressive behavior is more likely. Avoid rushing, leave extra time when traveling, anticipate delays, be extra clear with communication, practice patience and try not to take things personally.
