Mercury is doing that retrograde thing again where we can anticipate slowdowns and sometimes delays in anything related to communication or movement. Hermes, the Mercurial god that had wings on his feet is not as efficient at the moment. Of course, all things happen for a reason and the review process always helps us check in with ourselves to remember where we truly want to go. Humans have a tendency to get caught in the hamster wheel or the conditioned life of habit, and a little change or difficulty to the constant mind-numbing drive can help perspective.
Not only is Mercury retrograde, but also out of bounds. Out of bounds means Mercury has gone beyond the ecliptic (orbit of the Sun in a year) and that makes it less controllable, more rebellious. As it is outside of the container, it can bring alternative thinking. In Sagittarius, Mercury wants to be optimistic and believe in the big dream becoming reality. Mercury in this position may have the effect of us being really excited about something that others may not comprehend. We should contemplate the possibilities that arise, knowing that great change comes from taking risks to travel a different road.
Pisces has a large presence in the sky today. Mars, Moon, Neptune, and asteroid Chiron are all in the sign of Pisces. This can have us wanting to sleep away the day. We may find we are caught in the daydream. We may crave music and anything that transcends our mundane reality. Pisces communes with all that is and honors compassion. Soften your hard edges today and allow yourself some downtime to explore your imagination.
“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” the French philosopher, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.
