Every year Mercury goes into Pisces and things get fuzzy. It is as if our brains are driving in a rainstorm with broken windshield wipers. Things get muddy and unclear. Our thinking gets muted. And that's just a normal three weeks of Mercury in Pisces. Now we have a retrograde which is rife with miscommunication, sloppiness, forgetfulness misunderstandings and just plane old mistakes --in the sign of fuzzy Pisces! So, what are we supposed to do when confusion joins confusion and takes our brains hostage?
Take a deep breath.
Then...... you gotta go into the muted fuzzy stuff. Fears will be up. Confusion will be up. Insecurities will be up. Crazy will be up. In the journey of a hero this is the darkest night of the soul --this is 29 degrees of Pisces. The final degree of the zodiac. It is the metaphorical final day of winter and even though we can feel spring --- our brains are trudging backwards for more winter. We are going back for therapy, faith and maybe some karma.
There is a mess up. Or something breaks. Or someone will say or do something that rattles our cage. Why are we shaken? Are we believing something stupid or is it real? And if it is real do we need to clean up something whether it is a pattern or habit or some wreckage from our past? What does our soul say? Where is our spiritual motor? Mercury retrograde in Pisces is a time when we can find faith. Perhaps we have been phoning in our spiritual awareness for awhile and now when we get pushed and pulled by crazy just enough that we feel compelled to get quiet and ponder if there is something bigger out there guiding us. Maybe we pray. During Mercury retrograde in Pisces we benefit by going inside and finding our moral radar and our compassion. How can our intuition be tapped? Do you even remember how to access your intuition or inner compass? This is the power of Pisces which lives in dream time, mystical, creative and spiritual. Take the opportunity to relish this period of greater connection to Spirit and finding the areas of our life that need a little introspection. Find your gut in the middle of mind chatter. A little prayer can go a long way. And compassion for others and self.
The shadow period started Feb 19. Have you had hints that there is a retrograde on its way? Yeah, I know what you mean. Total pain in the butt. The retrograde starts on March 5. And we'll all be there on the other side of the retrograde March 28. We may be a bit humbler but that's okay our brains will be ready for spring by then!
