As we move into February we make our way closer and closer to the full moon. While it might not feel too intense right now, energies are headed our way that we might not be able to handle as properly as we would expect.
The full moon itself will be on the 9th and in the sign Leo. This full moon is going to be bringing us all to a new place in our lives. We will be much more passionate and offered strength. If we do not keep our emotions in check during this time, we will end up quite overwhelmed with the things that will be going on in our lives.
While some of us will be more willing to step out of our comfort zone and really take the lead in our own lives, not everyone will be feeling this way. Tension will be quite high and working to avoid crisis points during this time will be important. Finding balance won’t be easy and you really need to pay close attention to the things that are going on.
These full moon energies will be lasting for a few weeks even after the full moon is over, and they will remain present until Mercury goes retrograde on the 16th. This Mercury retrograde won’t be as forgiving as the last one we faced was. It will be quite challenging for each of us and bring forth serious issues when it comes to communication.
Mercury retrograde on February 16 at 12 ♓ 53 makes a significant and challenging aspect to the Moon. There are no major fixed stars conjunct Mercury but the Moon is on a powerful star in the Heart of the Scorpion.
Moon square Mercury creates a high degree of tension between your heart and mind or an internal debate between your thoughts and feelings. Anything you feel strongly about or have an opinion on is subject to your questioning, indecisiveness, and variability of emotions or interest.
Mercury retrograde February 2020 will help you openly and honestly share your feelings but the message received can be less thoughtful and caring than intended. Moodiness and parochialism can lead to disagreements that harm your intimate relationships. You may not care too much what others think of you but your partner most likely will.
This will be an ongoing issue with Mercury stationing direct quincunx the Moon, and Mercury leaving the retrograde zone again square the Moon. Friends may come and go but family is forever. Your parochial views on family may reach beyond the clan and extend even to nationalism.
The best use of this tense energy is hard mental work. You can take a critical look at both sides as you perfect your ideas. The key to avoiding arguments and strained relationships during Mercury retrograde 2020 is to stay calm and think before speaking.
While these energies might sound like a lot you will be more than capable of getting through them. Sure things might be frustrating, but they’re happening for a reason. Do your best to be as grounded as possible during these times.
