"Don't be afraid to be confused. Try to remain permanently confused. Anything is possible. Stay open, forever, so open it hurts, and then open up some more, until the day you die, world without end."

-- George Saunders

It's time to hit the reset button in our lives as the communication planet slows down in the spaced-out sign of Pisces on February 5 through the 27th. Expect to feel like your brain is operating on high or just plain lack of sleep -- regardless of your level of sobriety and restfulness. The planet ruling messages, travel and our thinking patterns is getting set for more retrograde mayhem in poetic-but-murky Pisces.

Mercury already has a chaotic and confusing ride in the sign of the Fish, but add the retrograde motion and you get nothing short of brain fog and slurry thinking. Watch out for waterlogged gadgets during this phase. Texting in the tub is not advisable under this influence, and keep your electronic devices as far away from beverages as possible.

Life may feel like a surrealist dream filled with mixed messages, synchronicity and haze. Deciphering reality from fantasy is exceptionally challenging during this time, so you may want to hold off on major decisions and commitments until the smoke clears. Better to use this retrograde period for revisiting unfinished emotional business and visions that you've placed on the back burner.

Mercury will quickly back up into Aquarius during this retrograde, changing the theme from dreams and illusions to revisiting some of our long-term goals and any unresolved issues with friends and communities. However, the slow thinking and slurry speech patterns will continue.

As with all retrogrades, communication and travel are especially complicated and delayed, and often require back-up plans. This is a great time for retreating, simplifying your schedule and returning to the loose ends in your life. Mercury retrograde periods favor finishing up old projects rather than starting new ones. It's a time to reflect, rest, read, revamp, revisit, return, re-do and all the other "re" activities you can think of.
