Also in Pisces at this time? Nebulous Neptune (2011-2026).
When Mercury the Intellect swims in the Pisces emotion-ocean, the heart opens to the mind. Pisces is loving, forgiving, and imaginative. This is the best time to gently address tender feelings, especially those internalized over the last year.
Mercury governs mental processing. Pisces is a scattered influence for the mind. Life will continue to flow in mysterious spiritual directions. At first it may feel like a muddled, swirling whirlpool, but soon it will crack open and reveal itself as a brilliant spectacle of light. Let the mind’s worn knots and tatters die. Let it all go. Refresh your neural pathways, line them with a bejeweled sprawl of tropical candy coral.
Pisces people tend to have a contentious relationship to the idea/practice of self-care. Pisces gives until nothing remains, not even stores of energy meant for herself. This leaves the fish chronically depleted in mind, body and spirit. Allow yourself and other fishy friends to marinate in prolonged introversion. This is how we rehabilitate, regenerate, revitalize the spirit. Pisces is sensitive, yes, but not weak. What we need is music and dancing. Also remember to stay hydrated and spend time in/near water if possible.
Animals associated with Mercury include the rooster, ram, goat and tortoise. In Pisces, the tortoise smiles shyly from Mercury’s breast. The fishes are sage, ancient, glacial in pace. In Native American astrology, Pisces belongs to the Frog clan. She is also associated with turquoise and all shades of blue and green. Meditate on the slippery frog, hibernating at the bottom of the pond, waiting patiently for spring to come. Meditate on the myriad hues of the ocean. Feel lapis droplets beading on your skin, gathering around your third eye, trickling to your toes. Let the waves wash everything away, leaving beautiful empty space for the flames of spring.
Mercury squares Mars in Gemini on Mar 23. We last saw this aspect on Feb 10, one day before the Chinese Lunar New Year. Mercury was still retrograde at this time. The revisitation of this square should bring harmony and resolution to any dysfunction that surfaced in February.
Mar 29 is the apex of this transit, with a conjunction to Neptune “at home” in Pisces. This influence is dreamy and psychedelic. Enjoy <3
