If you were hoping for a chaos-free year, think again. Mercury will retrograde not once, not twice, but three times this year, so if you expected anything less than strange and confusing…you probably guessed wrong.

Starting on February 19th, Mercury entered the pre-retro shadow phase. During this time, we can usually get a pretty good lead on how the upcoming retrograde will actually be. For many of us, communication and clear thought seem almost impossible to accomplish, even now, in just the pre-shadow phase. So, we can only imagine what it will soon be like.

Use this time as an opportunity to work on meditation and to allow creativity to take hold. With this particular retrograde taking place in Pisces, those of you who are native to this sign will find that it is especially your time to shine.

While we may have difficulty remembering mundane tasks, or picking up the dry-cleaning, our intuitive abilities will be on point.If you find yourself in a state of confusion, take a moment to relax and breathe, and ask yourself- what is it that I truly seek? You will find that your answers should carry you through to the end.

For those of you who belong to the ‘water signs,’ you should expect to be a bit more emotional than usual. You may have the impulse to say things to people who have wronged you in the past, or try to make ammends with loved ones that you are feuding with. However, step back, and reaccess this decision.

Remember, Mercury, the planet of communication is in retrograde….so you may not convey yourself in a productive manner that would lead to a likely reunion. Instead, words could come out that were unintended, leaving you in a tight spot you can’t take back…
