When Mercury goes retrograde, mistakes, misunderstandings, problems in communication and transportation are likely. Do not sign contracts, nor buy new items, nor begin new projects. It is an excellent time to plan, research, and prepare for something that will happen later.
Mercury is considered in its “fall” in Pisces, meaning that it is its least comfortable sign to be in. While it is true that Mercury’s logical and analytical capabilities will be debilitated, this retrograde won’t be as bad because Mercury will station retrograde by a degree ruled by Venus. The planet of love's influence will help mitigate the negative effects of the retrograde.
Don’t make any important moves when Mercury is retrograde. Nothing will be settled successfully for the future during these periods anyway – you will find it nearly impossible to nail down a plan. During a retrograde period, it is hard to get decisions from others. Even if a decision is made, it will be subject to change, either just after Mercury turns to direct motion or much later.
