Another “first” for 2013 – the first Mercury Retrograde period officially began on Saturday February 23 and continues until March 17, 2013. It occurs 3 times annually and this time, our Communication planet goes backward in the sensitive, imaginative, impressionable Water sign of Pisces. Mercury is not just associated with reading and writing, but is also connected to travel and transportation, education, manual dexterity, small electrical gadgets, etc. We just need to pay extra attention to the details to get thru without too many mishaps.

Mercury Retrograde is always a good time to make plans, complete projects and of course to exercise all those “re” actions: re evaluate, rewrite, re assess, re acquaint, re address. The retrograde period can give us time to pause and reflect, rather than jump into new schemes. Contract signings, innovations, new investments should be delayed if possible and certainly not attempted until after close scrutiny. Pisces and its planet ruler Neptune can push us far away from the real. Situations are not always clear.
However, as I always say, “life does NOT stop”. If it can’t wait and a project needs to be handled, get a grip, focus and do what needs to be done. Don’t accept any hazy solutions and then hope for the best. Avoid having your work redone due to initial carelessness or sloppy thinking.
