The Pisces symbol in a constellation with planets nearby

As the planet of communication moves around the zodiac, we have weeks when everything we say makes sense and other times when every conversation seems to be tongue-tied. Mercury's position in the zodiac influences everyone on earth depending on one's zodiac sign. When Mercury is in a heavenly position that is harmonious with your sign, you can quickly develop a seductive silver tongue. When this little planet moves to a more tense area of the zodiac, though, your words and other forms of

On February 21, Mercury moves into Pisces, the zodiac sign of mysticism. It will only be in this sign until March 9, when it moves on to Aries. But a short stay by Mercury indicates that it is moving at its fastest pace; this is when the planet of communication is at its most powerful and effective. When planets move through the sign of the fish, we on earth are more susceptible to a deeper appreciation of art, emotions and unspoken passion. For Mercury, communication favors the non-verbal when this little planet is in Pisces. You will notice a lot more gestures occurring to complete sentences and people will pull out their phones to show visuals more than usual. All of this energy taking the place of verbal conversation can often be clearer than words, but the downside is that there are bound to be misunderstandings, as the precision of language is missed when pictures don't illustrate the thousand words you meant to express.

Pisces is also the zodiac sign of dreams and alcohol. Mercury in this sign makes conversation move into abstract realms and digress like so much buzzed party banter. While this is great at the club on Friday night after hours, it does not bode well for Wednesday afternoon meetings with a teacher or upper management. How will this affect you? Will you be a mumble-mouthed dreamer or a visionary expressionist? Will you attract a love interest with your body language or misunderstand a partner and put your whole relationship in jeopardy? Read below to see how your zodiac sign is affected by this planetary movement

  • Aries March 21 – April 19

    Explaining your vision for how things are to get done will be difficult, but embrace the clarity with which you see the direction things need to go. Finding the way to the next level of success, be it romantic or professional, becomes apparent in a manner that is shockingly simple. You will wonder why you didn't think of it earlier.

  • Taurus April 20 – May 20

    You might wish this visit of Mercury lasted a little longer as you will be getting great feedback and offers of help. You can get a lot finished up when others are pitching in, so make a list and hold people to promises. Don't, however, expect much after March 10; get moving on the project that is attracting everyone.

  • Gemini May 21 – June 21

    A lover will have a hard time getting through to you because of your intense career pursuit. You need to make sure that this person knows he or she is loved and get on with the fantastic work you are doing. If you plan to network after Mercury leaves Pisces, even better for you to have as much as possible available to show future contacts what makes you great.

  • Cancer June 22 – July 22

    Prepare for some confusion with a foreign language or the customs of people who do things radically different than you do. Your preparation should not be for failure or success, though. It should be for looking ridiculously cute and attractive as you make your best effort. Becoming a love magnet hardly sums up how gorgeous some people are going to find you.

  • Leo July 23 – August 22

    Passion is intense with Mercury in Pisces. You might make love every day of this forecast period without saying a word to your partner. Ironically, this could be the happiest period of physical pleasure you have ever experienced. On the downside, you could be creating distance with your lover if you are not bringing an occasional gift along.

  • Virgo August 23 – September 22

    Your natural partnership section of the zodiac is Pisces, so expect lots of interplay with one-on-one relationships. A good way to look at things is that with murky Pisces energy, enforcing boundaries with a close partner in your life allows you to control the situation to your satisfaction.

  • Libra September 23 – October 22

    Being a busybody usually means that you are popular. Mercury in Pisces confers this special status on you. Party invites and nights out with your lover may dominate, but so will the need to keep working in order to maintain this exciting position in which you have found yourself. The chance to make big strides in love and career is here!

  • Scorpio October 23 – November 21

    Mercury in Pisces is a goldmine of love and success for you. The intensity of what a love interest is about to give you might be too much for even you to handle. IF you are prepared to understand love without a word being spoken, than you will surely be seduced by the silence that is going to envelop you.

  • Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

    Your idea of what to do around the house will meet with some unusual obstacles. Perhaps a partner disagrees with you, and some other relationship issues that have not been addressed are suddenly inspiring an argument. Other tension may occur when what you want to spend and what you need to spend on repairs are two different figures.

  • Capricorn December 22 – January 19

    Someone might misunderstand some gossip and give you access to a part of town to which you are usually not privy. This is a short window of opportunity to network toward some access that would usually be denied to you. Your status can rise when you say the right words that the usual members of the club just cannot seem to spit out.

  • Aquarius January 20 – February 18

    Finances may be murky as communication with your bank gets you too involved with chaos to be a pleasant partner or dinner companion. Your co-workers, classmates and family might get sick of hearing about the tension that this miscommunication is causing.

  • Pisces February 19 – March 20

    Mercury in your sign lightens the load you usually have, as people will be able to follow you more clearly than usual. No matter how deep you go and despite the tangents on which you choose to digress, many more people than usual will follow along. This could make you much more attractive to a possible soulmate.
