If you’re around the woowoo crowd enough, you’ve probably heard something called Mercury Retrograde and how horrible it is.
The upcoming Mercury Rx is from 2 Feb – 30 Mar 20, with the actual retrogrades from 17 Feb to 10 March.
This season’s Mercury Rx has a mix of the dreaminess and carelessness of Pisces and a tiny bit of the intellectual brilliance of Aquarius.
Whether it will impact you really depends on whether it hits any of your planets or angles in your birthchart.
For example, my friend Nicole @universeiswithme says Mercury Retrograde hist her pretty bad.
I suspect it’s because she is a Virgo rising. Virgo is ruled by Mercury.
Who will be affected?
This upcoming Mercury retrograde will affect people who have planets or angles in
- Mutable signs (0 to 12 degrees for Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, or Sagittarius)
- Fixed signs (28 to 29 degrees for Aquarius, Taurus, Leo or Scorpio)
For me, my Moon & Saturn (emotional responsibility), Venus (how I relate to others) and Chiron (how I can help others or how I feel wounded) are affected.
A myth about Mercury Retrograde is that you shouldn’t do anything. The truth is, it’s a great time to go back to something you had worked on in the past.
Here’s a video I made during some Mercury Rx ago about fixing my website homepage.
