Your horoscope for February 20 to 26, 2020

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Mercury in Pisces has just started a three-week retrograde cycle. Safeguards are a wise investment. For the next couple of weeks, pay extra attention to all you do, say, see, feel, and think.

      Among its many correlations, Pisces rules the immune system. While Mercury tours retrograde in this sign, it can target where you feel most vulnerable and exposed, this regarding health, wealth, and emotional well-being. In so doing, the retrograde can help you/help us to get to the source, which allows for the process of recovery, repair, and healing to begin. Hopefully, we’ll see some positive developments regarding COVID-19 and the pipeline conflict. (Pisces rules the masses, and it also rules oil.)

      Mercury retrograde is always well used for soul-searching and for taking time out to replenish and regroup. Along with the sun freshly into Pisces, the Mercury retrograde transit can also open the tap for creativity, romance, or the spiritual side of life.

      Now through next Tuesday, we are gifted with a run of enhancing and opportune transits. Thursday through Saturday, the moon in Aquarius is accompanied by Jupiter/Neptune (sextile), Mars/Uranus (trine), and sun/Uranus (sextile). This combination keeps the potential and the action fresh and stimulating. It’s a good few days to socialize and explore new options.

      Sunday delivers a new moon in Pisces enriched by several planetary alignments, mostly notably Venus/Jupiter. Satisfaction, ease, relaxation, and reward—it’s as good as it gets. Monday continues the ease, flow, and positive upswing. The sun and Mercury retrograde join forces on Tuesday. It is the midpoint of the retrograde cycle and the start of a next phase. Watch for the ball to get rolling in some significant way. The day could prompt news; an important talk, decision, or meet-up; or an insight or moment of clarity.
