Here we go again; the first Mercury retrograde for 2013 is here again. This time, the planet of communication and short travel is going back in the sign of Pisces. My advice - wait to submit your taxes after March 17th, 2013. There is a lot of confusion, delusion and dreaming going on with five planets in Pisces. The Universe is asking us to dig deeper into our dreams and imagination. Maybe we have to reevaluate some of those crazy ideas that can live only in our imagination. When Mercury turns retrograde, we have to revisit an idea, a concept or a plan in that specific area of our lives. Pisces are so dreamy and even unrealistic that trying to establish concrete plans for projects with strict deadlines is almost useless at the moment.
Considering that we are also under the influence of Saturn retrograde in Scorpio, all of us Earthlings are experiencing a sense of a slowdown, introspection and reevaluation. Don’t force the circumstances with too much ambition. Stop and smell the roses, or if you are somewhere where there is lots of snow, go for a romantic snowshoe walk in the woods. Take some pictures of the beautiful life around you. Let your dreams take over your life, at least temporarily. Try not to rush, especially when attempting to be on time or finish your work with a specific deadline. Even if you try really hard, you might end up being late anyways. Instead of getting upset about it, grab a cup of coffee with an understanding friend. It will be worth your while.
Of course, don’t forget to apply this wild imagination in the boudoir with your sweetie and spend some extra time cuddling. Every astrological aspect, regardless of its challenging influence, carries something positive that we can focus on. This is a highly romantic and relaxed time. Take full advantage of it.
