Sit Tightly and Wait!
Very little is moving forward this week, so use retrograde Mercury's return to Aquarius on February 12 to rework your ideas and plans. With so much drama going on in the world, try not to add to the noise as February 14 brings a full Moon in Leo. You'll have plenty of information coming your way as Mercury conjuncts the Sun in Aquarius on February 15 -- just don't do anything with it yet!
February 12: Mercury returns to Aquarius
Hopefully you made good use of Mercury's entrance into independent Aquarius on January 11. Now, as the communication planet -- now retrograde -- returns to this forward-thinking sign, you have an opportunity to focus on your best ideas. You'll make the most progress if you set your emotions aside and use your logical mind. Seek out innovative, creative people to inspire you and help you develop your projects and plans. Mercury will remain in Aquarius until March 17.
February 14: Full Moon in Leo
Are you ready for your close-up? During this attention-grabbing full Moon, make sure you conduct yourself in a way that will make you proud. The Sun and Mercury in Aquarius ask you to take into account what's best for your friends or community, making this a perfect time to highlight a cause that's close to your heart. Whether the spotlight shines on you or others, you can plan on experiencing a bit of drama! Not only is Leo a showy sign, but full Moons have a tendency to ramp up emotions; Mercury's retrograde is also likely to highlight misunderstandings. Do your best to keep your cool and not overreact!
February 15: Mercury conjuncts the Sun
What will you do with your good ideas? Hopefully you'll continue to review them as retrograde Mercury returns to conjunct the Aquarius Sun. You're standing in the middle of an information bonanza, and your mind is likely working overtime as you try to figure out what to do with everything on your mind. Just be patient, as this is no time to speak carelessly or tell others about incomplete projects. Ordinarily, your ideas would get the green light once Mercury turns direct ... but not this time. Mars, the planet of action, is moving very slowly and will turn retrograde on March 1, so count on further delays. Test your ideas after Mercury turns direct on February 28, but keep in mind that right now is no time to launch big projects or other important initiatives.
