We're currently in the midst of our first Mercury Retrograde of the year. The planet of communication, learning, and travel has dipped back into dreamy, intuitive Pisces until the 28th of the month. Expect a dip in your energy levels now that we have quite a few planets in this sign, including the Sun and Neptune, which can make our minds a little foggy. You may feel a lack of direction right now due to the Piscean mutable energy. However, you are encouraged to surrender to the flow right now as this Mercury Retrograde gifts you the opportunity to reconnect with your soul and to receive the next steps for your journey.
Be gentle with yourself and others, as this is a highly sensitive time. Focus on developing your psychic gifts through meditation, divination, or dream work. Your inner world will be very active over the next few weeks. Try to keep a journal to record your experiences or to simply release the overwhelm of emotions that you're feeling during this empathic time. Overall, this Mercury Retrograde can be a beneficial factor in helping you gain the closure you need surrounding situations in which you've played the role of victim or martyr. It's time to revamp your perspective when it comes to using boundaries that empower you and contribute to healthier interactions with others.

Mercury Retrograde brings your attention to a quiet part of your chart associated with intimacy, the psyche, and transformation. You're basically the epitome of a caterpillar in its cocoon during the next few weeks. Spend this time diving into the hidden parts of yourself. This current transit can help you reframe your perspective as it relates to any trauma—especially sexual assault and abuse—that you've experienced. Mercury is swimming through Pisces which can make you more sensitive than usual. It may feel like the outside world is too much to deal with as you're more susceptible to being emotionally triggered during this transit.
This is actually a good time to withdraw from social media, if possible, as these platforms are typically a cesspool for negativity depending on what part of the Twitterverse you find yourself in. If you need the extra emotional support, surround yourself with gentle people or seek professional help. This part of your chart is associated with shadow work, making this an opportune time to explore psychological wounds that have inhibited you from experiencing intimate, safe bonds that allow you to show a more vulnerable side of yourself.
