On December 19, Mars (energy, assertion, aggression) enters Pisces, a WATER sign, where it will continue until January 29. Pisces energy is so unfocused and diffuse that Mars will have trouble gathering up enough anger to make any real trouble. Fewer arguments. In Pisces, Mars is very sensitive and willing to help relieve the suffering of others.
Mercury (one’s thinking, communication) goes Retrograde (from our vantage point on Earth, appears to go “backwards”). The things you’ve heard about this phenomenon are not old wives’ tales. Slow down. Don’t start new projects. Work on things you already had in the pipeline. This is a good time to do needed maintenance. Mercury will remain retrograde until January 8.
