Mercury moves back into Pisces: A Higher Vision
By Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
Mercury moves back into Pisces at 6:22 am PT until April 16th.
Under the influence of Mercury in Pisces, and depending on how this transit affects other planets in your birth chart, your intuitive powers are strong, while your rational mind might be on hiatus. You’re in touch with the big picture and higher vision, but the details of daily life escape you. Miscommunications and misunderstandings are possible, as you lose focus and it becomes more difficult to tell the difference between dream and reality.
You make decisions based on feelings rather than logic now. You’re also more sensitive to other people’s feelings, and your decisions could be motivated by compassion. You may not be able to explain how you came to a certain conclusion. Words might elude you now, and you long to express yourself in non-verbal ways.
Your mind is flexible, adaptable and wide open to other people’s ideas — possibly too open. It might be hard for you to know what you’re thinking, or to separate your own opinions from others’. You might be accused of being wishy-washy, and you could have a tendency toward procrastination, avoidance or escapism.
Projects that require organization and attention to detail could be frustrating now. Better to focus on dreaming up your ideal vision for the future, and getting clear about the big picture of what you want to create. Channel your enhanced imagination into creative outlets like music, painting and poetry.
Famous people with Mercury in Pisces include: Christina Ricci,Jason Ritter, Chelsea Clinton, Reese Witherspoon, Keri Russell, Fergie, Seth Green, Robbie Williams, David Blaine, Adrien Brody, Johnny Knoxville, Queen Latifah, Céline Dion, Cindy Crawford and Bret Michaels.
If you have Mercury in Pisces as a natal influence:
You say one thing, but they hear something else. You’re sure you’re with the program, until you arrive at a meeting that started an hour ago. You didn’t mean to overlook that crucial detail when you were giving your partner an important message; you just temporarily forgot about it. In your life, these types of miscommunications never seem to end.
If only you could express yourself with smoke signals, touch or telepathy, instead of words! Staying on track and getting to the point can both be a real problem for you, because you get distracted by details and derailed by auxiliary stories. Your logic doesn’t follow the same path as it does for most others, so you can arrive at strikingly different places given the same information. You tend to see beyond the literal, read between the lines, and hear the unspoken story.
Getting your thoughts and ideas organized enough to write a paper or article can be sheer torture for you. Typically you’ll avoid or procrastinate from the odious task until it’s almost too late, and then you may or may not pull it off. Mentally you’re quite flexible, which is good because it means you’re not stubborn, but this also means you can’t always keep a grip on your opinions. They can change like the wind.
