What can we expect from Mercury Retrograde in Pisces over March? The possibilities include…
Love Zombie Relapses due to an object of phantom desire returning or weirdly reanimating in your digital realm.
Time Slips – Deja Vu and Past Life Nostalgia.
Addiction Awareness Polarity – compassion for your previous self inspires spontaneous relinquishment of a health-damaging substance or even food. Alternatively, people power up into hyperbolic Party Beast mode.
Shamanic Consciousness while you clean out the fridge or do your taxes but an inability to relax during officially mindful pursuits.
Friendly House Ghosts.
Heightened empathy with children, animals, and plants.
Successfully investing in creativity/creative enterprises.
The Dead Dreams Laboratory
And, remember the Dead Dreams Laboratory?
What happens to the tired old fantasies that don’t get zapped in the Dead Dreams Laboratory? You don’t wanna know. Oh all right, they turn into zombie-mind-entities that sap all your energy from the future and feed it back into the past, which then haunts you, only casually and without any real commitment. Like a stalkery ex who mispronounces your name all the time.
Deal with the Dead Dreams, so you clear out the psyche ready for fresh input. They come up only so you can zap them.
It’s a potent Mercury Retrograde with the Messenger God in more or less constant alignment to Neptune – the ruling planet of Pisces – and the North Node of the Moon.
Maverick Money & Surreal Romance
Yes to creating, no to signatures. As in it’s a fabulous mini-era for art and spiritual consciousness. It’s got potential for maverick money generation and surreal romance. But it’s not a strong vibe for commitments or decisions it would be hard to reverse. It’s a prequel to the Neptune-North Node synergy of June 2019, the most magical and fate-infused energy of this year.
So pay attention to attractions, destinations, and concepts that float up over March – they’re essential.
And yes, you know it, keep a dream diary or create time on awakening to contemplate your nocturnal dreamings. Mercury and Neptune this connected makes Dream Witchery simple. The strange, liminal consciousness that inspires the recall of ancient days or receptivity to guides is very Mercury-Neptune.
To give you a concept of this energy, here is the Mercury Conjunction Neptune delineation from Astral DNA. It’s for a natal placement but gives you the gist of this particular Mercury Retrograde in Pisces.
Mercury Conjunction Neptune
Purveyors of phantom goods, spinners of deluxe narratives that have their origin story in another dimension, lucid dreamers and transcendental comedians. Mercury-Conjunct-Neptune people are tapped straight into Source Vibe. They can have difficulty detecting the granite of reality from their ethereal embellishments. Pet Peeves: That people look to them for redemption or validation without even asking. That Unrequited Love inspires them more than the returned variety. That they can’t turn off their “seeing Ghosts” function. The photographer Annie Leibovitz, actress/writer/director/producer Issa Rae, and writer Neil Gaiman have Mercury-Neptune Conjunctions. Rudolph Steiner was also a Mercury-Neptune person, as was Ray Bradbury: “You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.”
Mercury Retrograde Dates – Gods, Ghosts, And Pluto On The South Node
The relevant dates are:
Mercury Retrograde in Pisces Shadow Zone: February 20 to April 16. It is the entirety of the time Mercury spends in the 16° to 29° zone of Pisces. Those are the “it” degrees. If you are a Mercury Retrograde purist, you consider Mercury Retrograde as soon as it reaches the degree (16° in this case) to which it will later Retrograde. And you deem it properly Direct when it gets back to 29° Pisces, the degree it first went Retrograde.
Mercury Officially Retrograde: March 5/6 – Just as Uranus gets into Taurus, making that a particularly whack few days.
Mercury Officially Direct: March 28/29. It is also the date that Pluto is on the South Node, making it ultra profound. What majestic secrets will be unearthed around the end of March?
