Mercury Retrograde: Unplugged

Mercury Retrograde in Pisces

– March 5th (29 Pisces) until March 28th (16 Pisces) 2019

We are about to enter the next Mercury Retrograde phase where we dive deep into Pisces’ realm.

Mercury is the planet that rules communication & the mind. It’s not at home in Pisces’ realm which is emotional, boundless, meandering & non-verbal.

Therefore, over the next few weeks, don’t rely on your usual way of doing things. Forget trying to work things out in your head. Instead, tap into your natural instincts. Use whatever tools at your disposal to stop the chatter of the mind, even if only for a short while.

This is potentially a creative, spiritual few weeks – think Oneness, inspiration, let go of the ego, dream. ‘Be’ more than ‘do’.

It could also be a frustrating, confusing, disorienting, bewildering few weeks. Know where to find your anchor in life and tie on your rope super-tight. Mercury’s setting off on its ship with no compass, no form of navigation and that Pisces’ sea is vast. Keep one foot on dry land.

Throughout March, learn to go with the flow and wander wherever life leads you. Don’t take on too much, take time out, be flexible. Be poetic, mull over ideas, contemplate, practise magical thinking.

Remember this is not the time for major decisions or actions – Mercury is the trickster and the truth/new information only comes to light once Mercury turns direct. Don’t believe everything you hear or read.

I will leave you with a wonderful quote from the author, Anne Lamott – Sun Aries, Mercury Pisces:

‘Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you’.

Great advice, especially now.

Happy Mercury Retrograde from tomorrow – hope it’s not too tricky for you.
