MERCURY enters PI after meeting the SUN (Feb 17 – March 5): Tuning in, and Communing. Openness & Fluidity of the Mind.

15 Feb

Only 18 hrs after connecting with the SUN on Saturday Feb 17 at the very last degree of AQ – a brilliant energy for synergies and visionary co-creations – , MERCURY will cross over the ‘Coherence Point’ to enter PISCES (The SUN will follow the day after – here’s a write-up for the Solar Piscean season).

MERCURY will pay PISCES its yearly visit this time only for 2 weeks and 2 days… yet with a few sweet encounters of the mysterious kind.

Swift, brainy, practical MERCURY isn’t per se ‘well placed’ in PI (considered ‘in exile’ “What am I doing here..?”).
Not so much about doing, and even ‘active thinking’ Rather: Having an open mind, being fluid, flexible, perhaps receiving messages.

Straight-forward communication turns into energetic / psychic tuning in and communing with one another, with Nature, and the larger ‘field’.
A wonderful time for creative inspiration that’s beyond words, and of course for music, poetry, film, photography, and art-as-fusion.

Here’s the line-up of MERCURY connections in / from PISCES – giving us a flavour of the vibes:

 

Feb 25:
MERCURY meets NEPTUNE.
Can be on a personal level big confusion, illusion, unclear communication where boundaries aren’t respected.

On a deeper, more transcendent level, it’s all about connecting and communing – there’s only ONE of us here….!
A very watery day (MOON in CAN, SUN / MERCURY / NEPTUNE / VENUS / CHIRON all in PI) that calls for fluidity, flexibility, care, and connection.

Feb 28 (day before the Full Moon in VIR – PI):
MERCURY in PI squares MARS in SAG, and sextiles PLUTO in CAP.
Avoid ‘fishy’ dynamics that can lead to unnecessary conflict, and waste time and energy. Let Spirit be your counsel, and
speak through you.

March 2:
MERCURY in PI trine (stationary) JUPITER in SCO.
What do you pick up? What does your gut sense say?
How can you convey beyond words? What’s the vibe you put out?
Excellent time for meditation, and deep energetic clearing.

March 4:
MERCURY conj. VENUS and CHIRON
Also the day of the year of SUN conj. NEPTUNE, and VENUS conj. CHIRON.

Speaking from the Heart and Soul is healing for ALL.

 

Blessings for the sublime Piscean Time!

MERCURY retro in mid-SAG going direct again (Dec 22/23) in ‘stormy’ square with NEPTUNE in PI: Co(s)mic RE-lief…

22 Dec

How has your December Journey with MERCURY retro been thus far?

Hopefully, you tapped into the magic of it, and didn’t get ‘lost in translation’ but found meaning in the ‘news of the weird and wondrous’.

Today, Dec 22, MERCURY goes from retro back to direct f / forward (normal???).
In this ‘U-Turn mode’ take it easy on yourself, and your fellow Earthly friends, as things can still turn out different than expected (SAG). Yet Truth is what matters most. And, as always, a good sense of humour, incl. about oneself.

MERCURY is now ‘behind’ the SUN again in the Zodiac (the effect of the M-r phase is that it ‘steps back’), therefore, Spirit, Consciousness, and the Heart (SUN) lead, and the Mind (MERCURY) can follow…

MERCURY in SAG will be in turnaround ‘storm’ until Dec 28 (yep, over Christmas) – while in square with NEPTUNE in PI.
I just read in the weather forecast for Vancouver Island / Lower Mainland BC that there might be snow storms this Christmas weekend! The retro dream of a White Christmas may well come true!
Stationary MERCURY in SAG square NEPTUNE in PI says: Hopes and dreams and visions are great, yet no attachment / disappointment please. It’s all good as IS. Let the mind not get in the way of the true Christmas Spirit of Love and Light!

Here’s the TIMELINE for the remainder of the MERCURY out-of-retro integration:

DEC 19 – 27: 
MERCURY stationary in SAG in square with NEPTUNE in PI: Often surrender is the wisest thing…

DEC 22: MERCURY goes out of retro at 13° SAG – 
Watch for U.S. news (right on their AC!).
And check in on Inner Guidance from the Heart.

DEC 28: Post-retro ‘storm’ ends.
Calming into wintry simplicity.

JAN 7: MERCURY in late SAG in square with CHIRON in PI, and trine with URANUS stat. in AR (#3 of 3).
Deeper understanding of what frees us, and helps release old ‘stories’.

JAN 10: Post-retro ‘shadow’ ends.
We’ve come a long way, since it all ‘started’, mid-Nov (pre-retro ‘shadow’).

JAN 12: MERCURY crosses the ‘Integrity Point’ from SAG to CAP.
Time to walk the talk, and build the change.

JAN 13: MERCURY conjunct SATURN (#2 of 2) – in early CAP.
Nice time for a new ‘contract with yourself’ – and / or with others.

Heart Blessings for this Sacred and Deep Time of Year!

MERCURY into GEMINI (June 6 – 21): Life is Learning!

6 Jun

Another planet shift today 06 / 06, under the double-Alchemy of GEMINI and the SCORPIO MOON:
MERCURY, entered today its natural Zodiac energy – of GEMINI, and our mental energy can be more swift and versatile, open to learn – from anything.

Re-enter conversations that might have gotten stagnant under MERCURY in TAURUS, and make new contacts (like, by: simply ASKing people something).  Be the Student of Life. A good time to start a new learning project, esp. languages. And keep track (or not) of all the ideas that pop in now.

 

Hermes / Mercury

In the meantime, with MERCURY ‘Messenger’ in GEMINI our mind is buzzing like a bee and dancing around like a butterfly, mer-curious to sample here and there, learn where we go, and make light-hearted connections,
while in square with NEPTUNE in PISCES and trine with JUPITER in LIBRA (both alignments are exact June 13).
When MERCURY goes into square with CHIRON in PI and opposition with SATURN in SAG (June 17 / 18) we might want to watch not to get overwhelmed while buying into an atmosphere of FOMO (fear of missing out) – sounds like ‘hungry ghost’ symptom to me. So much goodness, so many beautiful blossoms of Spring… When the Heart is at the right place we’re always where we need to be, and it’s easy to cultivate happiness and fulfillment. 

MERCURY will catch up with the SUN on June 21, right on the Summer Solstice point (1 degree CANCER) – a sweet alliance that calls us to speak from the Heart, from Spirit, and make rapport-building connections.

This is to a joyful, de-lightful MERCURY-in-GEMINI mini-season! ❤

Neptunian November

18 Nov
MERCURY, now in SAG (since Nov 12, until Dec 2), squares NEPTUNE today, Nov 18, and will pass SATURN on Nov 23.
 
An important time to guard the mind from too many ‘random’ influences that could contaminate thoughts, blur the vision and distract us from our focus. Yet also a nice edge for imagination and inspiration. And to keep our Heart of Compassion open (and not let the mind ‘override’ it)!

Quite watery and Neptunian these days, as the MOON is still in CANCER until this eve, the SUN in the last 3 days / tail end of deep SCO (until Nov 21), and – big news:
NEPTUNE stations, and goes from retro to DIRECT from Earth perspective, tomorrow Sat Nov 19!
 
What a Neptunian November, and U.S. Election… media, ‘glamour’, deception, confusion, illusion, incl. the MOON in PI accentuated NEPTUNE on Nov 8 / 9 – you get the idea: Lots of people thought they were dreaming or in an alternate reality / unreality – and on a spiritual dimension it IS all ‘Maya’.
 
NEPTUNE rules music, media, dance, surrender, altered states of consciousness.
  • Is your dream world also more heightened these days? Surrendering to what-IS seems to come easy these days – let it be a fluid energetic experience (rather than a ‘whatever’ / blah mode or depressive giving up). Does being in nature, connected, in the dance of life help you with that?
  • Allow things to be washed ashore and come your way – and release what’s not ‘yours’.
  • Purging, cleansing, soaking in Sea Salt. All good medicine.

And the North Node in VIR on the ‘other end’ says: be discerning, check what’s healthy. Exposure to the subtle, all-connective realms (PI) helps me with my work and well-being.
