The very long, and dragged out retrograde is finally over as Mercury, the planet of information, communication, and expression finally takes a forward, direct motion in Pisces.
The last 3 weeks have been a challenge as we lost all form of direction and logic, looking back on the past, reviewing, revising, and redefining elements of our lives that needed a bit more attention.
After every retrograde there is a 2 week shadow period which is the length of time it takes to get back up to normal rotating speed, and be fully engaged with the newly stabilized energy.
Our interactions will be easier, but we will still find some difficulty as Pisces is the weakest placement Mercury can be in. We are still being asked to lead with our intuitions as far as taking information in, processing it, forming it into our need for expression, and having that understood by those we are interacting with.
Under the Aries Sun, we will have much more balance than when Mercury first moved into Pisces before it went retrograde. The fire energy of Aries balances the water of Pisces meaning we aren’t in the dark depths of the ocean. Instead we are hovering just below the surface where the light is easily seen.
Venus having just moved into Pisces, means that we are likely to be expressing ourselves on a deep emotional levelwhere love is concerned. And where love is absent, our wounds will feel that much more isolating. Expression and connection during this time is very spiritual making for some deep issues to be acknowledged and released.
Be mindful that things, especially technological and mechanical things, anything with working parts (including the mind) can breakdown with the cause still be unclear, vague, missing details, and really has no rhyme or reason of why.
This is still a great time to get into the arts, painting, music, writing. Anything with a creative form of expression as Mercury in Pisces brings the artists out of hiding. With the Aries Sun urging us to start new things, a creative endeavour would be very much supported under this energy, although until the shadow period is over it’s best to go back to complete unfinished projects instead of starting something brand new.
As always, if you require any assistance navigating these energies, please book a session online, and I’d be more than happy to help guide you through.
