About 3 weeks ago, on 22nd February, Mercury began it’s retrograde motion in the zodiac sign of Pisces. It went from 19 degrees backwards to about 5 degrees in Pisces. Now Pisces is one of those signs that is thought to be dreamy, inspirational.. etherial and nebulous. In it’s rather negative side, it’s also about confusion, bit of chaos, urge to escape..and deceptions. Add this to the fact that Mercury ..when retrograding brings out issues like mis-communication, negative thinking, stressful mind states, problems with local organisations and travels.. you can see that this combination..and the resulting 3+ week period can be a very trying time on so many level for everyone..
Pisces, Gemini & Virgo people would have been more severely affected, and those with these signs as their ascendant (rising signs). For the rest of the people (signs), which ever house where Pisces falls within would have had the troubles.. Things may have started to unravel drastically or even begun to dissolve .. !
GOOD NEWS.. you can stop holding your breath, or gasping for fresh air. Mercury retrograde period (this one) is now over.
Mercury goes direct today.. 17th March, at about 8.03pm (gmt). The last few weeks may have stirred up all sorts of troubles …and as Mercury now goes direct, not only do those hindrances start to fade away, on a personal level, you can take the initiative (mercury rules the mind), and get to resolving issues that have come up.
Miscommunications, arguments, contractual problems, agreements that stalled, commercial ventures that took a nose-dive – can all be attended to now, and successful be sorted – mostly in a positive way!
Although Mercury is now going forward, it has to catch up to the place where it got to before… So it will take Mercury till 6th April, to get to it’s previous position (19 degrees Pisces).. So until then, you have an opportunity to make every effort to resolve issues that have been coming up in the past 3 weeks. And then things can really take off..
So…breath – smile- and bravely tackle the issues with a positive frame of mind.. with imagination, compassion and your highest ideals (positive qualities of Neptune which rules Pisces)..and all will turn out very well indeed.
