Mercury Retrograde has a fearsome reputation for good reason: it is indeed a time when everything seems to descend into chaos -- especially when it comes to technology and communication). Protecting data is something we can prepare for. But when it comes to love and romance, Mercury's backward dance creates an entirely different set of circumstances.

This will be especially true as Mercury retrogrades through Pisces -- ruler of fantasy, dreams and psychic connections -- February 6 through February 28. All Mercury retrograde periods tend to stir up people from your past. You'll perhaps run into an old colleague on the street, get a call from a friend you haven't heard from in years or suddenly get an email from someone you met but never fully connected with, many Moons ago. Retrogrades are all about returning, going back to something that we started but never quite finished. And when you factor in the magical Pisces energy, it's all about the return of past lovers.

Whether you're single or attached, you can bet that "the one who got away" will pop up in your mind in the coming weeks. And he/she is probably thinking of you too, perhaps at the exact same moment. Will your lost love call you? Will your amazing lover from last year suddenly reappear with a middle-of-the-night sext? Mercury Retrograde in Pisces will stir your emotions and make you question romantic decisions made long ago. What's done is not necessarily done -- yet.

The big question is should you try to renew the relationship or not. There's another important caveat to heed during this phase: if you meet someone while Mercury is retrograde, try not to jump into a commitment. This is definitely not the time for "what you see is what you get". You won't truly know your new lover until after Mercury goes direct.

You typically don't have much clarity during Mercury retrograde phases, and you're definitely likely to wear rose-tinted glasses when Mercury is in Pisces. So have fun, and indulge in hearts and flowers (and great sex), but don't assume that your fairytale is going to have a perfectly cinematic trajectory. It may feel like you're living out your own personal rom-com, but after Mercury stations direct, you may realize that it was really a horror movie.

That said, Mercury Retrograde in Pisces also provides a great setting for repairing your current relationship. If you're in a long-term partnership, communication can definitely go awry now. Instead of breaking up and regretting it after Mercury goes direct, use any arguments that come up as an opportunity to deepen your understanding of unhealthy patterns. You can break the cycle and emerge from the retrograde phase a happier couple.

In the meantime, light some candles and put on some mood music -- you're about to get your romance on!
