Mercury goes retrograde in Pisces the day before Valentine’s. When Mercury apparently moves backwards in the sky, unfinished business comes back for resolution. We “re”-turn to old matters. Since it’s happening in Pisces*, your ex may come back … at the very least to rehash the reasons why he left you.
Mercury retrograde has a bad rap for communications gone awry. However, it’s good for revisiting the past. If your Pisces man returns to talk, clear up any confusion, shatter any delusions. His ruling planet, Neptune, is being challenged right now by Saturn, god of hard, cold reality. Illusions are being shattered until summer, and you have the opportunity to distinguish fantasy from fact.
*Mercury moves back into Aquarius on Feb. 26, and returns into Pisces on March 18.
