MERCURY RETROGRADE starts Saturday February 23 on a MONKEY DAY that can add more chaos and unexpected actions. Mercury is the trickster in Western astrology and Monkey is the trickster in Chinese astrology.
Communication planet Mercury is retrograde for three weeks three times a year. During the Mercury retrograde in this Water Snake year, slow down and be more thorough. And be very picky about any documents that you sign.
The Mercury retrograde dates in 2013 are:
February 23 – March 17 in Water sign Pisces. Take time to ponder before acting, which works in a contemplative Snake year.
June 26 – July 20 in Water sign Cancer. Communicate your feelings, and really listen to the sentiment of what people say.
October 21 – November 10 in Water sign Scorpio. Secrets can be revealed, and actions without integrity will be exposed.
