This special Valentine’s Day falls right smack in the middle of Mercury Retroshade, and things are about to get a little messy.
Mercury Retroshade is the confusing period right before Mercury Retrograde. It is what prefaces those few weeks where communication breaks down, electronics act up, and random things fall apart for no reason whatsoever. During Retroshade, you will start to notice some uncomfortable truths slip through the cracks of reality, and since this happens on Valentine’s Day, you might wan’t to keep any important decisions on the back burner.
On February 13th to the 14th, Venus moves on to square the South Node in Capricorn and North Node in Cancer. Relationship, self-esteem or financial issues will bring you to a turning point – stick with the old rules/restrictions or move towards a more sensitive but satisfying goal.
In other words, don’t take them back.
One thing Mercury Retrograde is famous for is bringing the exes back around. It goes without saying that this is the absolute worst time of the year for that nonsense. Follow your gut- trust your instincts. They know what’s up.
