Mercury moves into the sign of Pisces today and will remain there for most of March. Our communication comes through the element of water. As we know water can carry sonar waves long distances, but the hint at “wave” is a big clue to the Neptunian realm of Pisces. Like children communicating under water in a pool, much is left to hand signals and gestures underwater as our voices pushing air become limited. We are inundated with information from other avenues as we feel the water encapsulate our skin. We swim in melodic flow with the tides. We drift, float, and meander finding that effortless connection through the watery abyss with all that is. Pisces communication can come in the form of symbols, synchronicities, sensations, and the unfolding of creative imagination. As you cannot hold water without some form of container, it just seeps in and connects to whatever is in the environment. The membrane of separation is minimal when we contemplate water, for it just fills up whatever it is granted access to whether conscious or not. As we let the mind swim along in our world, taking the time to slow down and let go of all the calculations and factual logic, we can open to the “waking dream”.
The planetary mix is quite watery and fiery at the moment potentially producing steam if met in the perfect balance. Pisces Sun, Neptune and Mercury can be content with just “being” and taking in the vision and magic of the moment. The active Aries Venus, Mars and Uranus say “let’s do it”, igniting the spark for pushing forward the creative vision.
Saturn in Sagittarius met up with the Moon yesterday before getting ready to slow down and move backwards or ‘retrograde’. The Moon carries the knowledge of Saturn’s quest to find the meaning in it all and what is the real truth of our “being-ness”. Are we able to carry our ideals forward and claim our beliefs? Can we have the discipline and commitment to align with our higher truths? Where may we be holding ourselves back and not taking the leap of faith? Saturn will be asking us to contemplate what we know to be true and even go back into Scorpio mid-June to see what we may have missed integrating in our intimate lives.
