Mercury Retrograde in Pisces March 5, 2019 at 1:19 pm ET
Lots of mishaps and miscommunications are heightened with Mercury Retrograde as usual of course.
Mercury is not positively placed in Pisces. Mercury is all logic, and Pisces is all feeling and imagination, so there is a conflict between what makes sense and what is actually real or not. Pisces is more like spiritual visualization and broad, profound concepts, higher wisdom, beliefs and can be irrational, while Mercury is rational information exchange, gossip, small details and transactions.
This could be a good time to get real about addictions. Whether your addictions are to altering reality with drugs and alcohol, or the virtual world of the internet, social media or video games, Mercury Retrograde is likely to make you more aware of how your addiction is a problem. Pisces is a sign of karma, so it’s a good time to rethink the reality you have been creating and what to stop doing so you can make a change. Events during this time could bring a greater understanding to the importance of how compassion is an important part of life. Writing down what you reflect upon is recommended to help you not forget important revelations.
Mercury Retrograde in Pisces is also when secrets and lies become most paramount. Mercury Retrograde is the trickster on steroids. Delusions and illusions are hard hitting and people with an agenda will stop at nothing to create deceitful perceptions to get what they want. Those with clout in the field of media communications are likely to work overtime to distract and deceive. Trusting what you hear, especially when it is based on opinion, beliefs and hearsay, is not recommended. This is the time to question the hidden motives of the messenger.
The realization that we don’t know much of anything at all in the grand scheme of things, and there are always people and special interests working overtime to manipulate information and altering perceptions of reality, can lead to eventual revelations once Mercury goes direct in a few weeks. Trust is difficult during this time.
The big question with Mercury Retrograde in Pisces is, “Is this really true?” Doubts about beliefs is highly indicated.
The the two fish of Pisces and the duality and reversible, androgenous symbolism of Mercury can make this time very difficult to know what to think or believe. Opposite perspectives will be numerous and can make decisions and opinions cloudy and lacking in detail. Someone being the perpetrator, yet playing the victim to manifest lies in their own favor is common.
Be extra cautious of lies, deceit and manipulation at this time.
Financial matters could be especially confusing or unclear during this period.
Mercury stations Direct in Pisces on March 28, 2019 at 9:59 am ET.
When Mercury is about to station direct in Pisces a whole lot of mixed messages are likely to bubble up to the surface. Awareness of lies and deceit, manipulation, misinformation and miscommunications is likely to be brought into consciousness. The desire for real truth rises as delusions become apparent. Wisdom and higher consciousness should be prioritized as Mercury gets ready to head forward.
This is a good time to reset your karma and look toward more philosophical concepts to tune into your higher intelligence and wisdom.
