Mercury turns retrograde on Sunday, February 16 at 4:54pm and remains so until March 10. Its shadow period lasts until March 30. The degree at which the retrogradation begins (12º53’ Pisces) is represented in the Sabian symbols by “an ancient sword used in many battles is displayed in a museum.” This could be a particularly slippery Mercury retrograde period. It could be difficult to think straight.
We might be quite forgetful and dreamy. Details could escape us. It’s definitely not a good time for anything related to electronics or signing legal papers. We should also be careful to not rub authorities the wrong way, as this could backfire badly. However, this time is perfect for completing an artistic project we had forgotten about, gaining new inspiration, and turning our dreams into realities. The more charming, flowing, and joyful we are during this time, the more magic will emerge from this retrogradation.
