Is Mercury in Pisces forever? Or does it just damn well feel like it? “Desperate Sagittarius” speaks for many of us, I am sure.
Is it possible, that Mercury retrograde is still “on”?!
I have been fine throughout the actual retrograde, working well and feeling inspired. But ever since it supposedly went direct, I am in a brain fog. My sound system has crashed multiple times and still isn’t working. My super fast internet is slower than a snail and websites don’t open. The text I am writing in my usually amazing writing program has started to auto format every single document into a super-sized disgusting font that is impossible to change back.
I have so many dilemmas to deal with, that I barely get any work done anymore. And if I hadn’t parked my car outside, I would have already thrown all this technical shit out of the window.
But that’s not all. Ever since Mercury supposedly went direct, weird men I had blocked and thankfully hadn’t heard from in decades have started sending me cryptic messages à la “guess who`s this…” I can’t sleep at night because I instastalk ex-boyfriends from when I was a teenager, and when I do sleep, I have the most bizarre of dreams.
I get stood up by people I actually want to meet, and as an added plus, both my vacuum cleaners (the robot and the normal one) have broken down. I’m not a Virgo, but this is too much.
To relax, I decided to do some Yin Yoga yesterday evening, and as the teacher in the video said “let go…” my Italian Greyhound puked her dinner onto my Yoga mat. Somehow I feel that this sums up my life right now.
Can you please help? What on earth is going on?!
A desperate Saggitarius
Dearest Desperate Sagittarius,
It’s not so much Mercury Retrograde as Mercury in Pisces for an insanely long time. It rarely occurs and is, remember, the weirdest Mercury Retrograde since 2013. So everything you’re describing, above, fits the bill. I can relate to a lot of it and I am sure others can too. That it’s in Pisces makes for surreal, cinematic moments like your greyhound and the yoga mat.
And you being Sagittarius means it is extra-frustrating as Jupiter wants to expand at Warp Speed. But there’s more, Pluto on the South Node gives this whole passage Eighth House undertones.
Key Themes: sexual history, gynecological and urological ailments or irks, belated suspicions over long-ago events and sharp recall of existentially threatening events. But all of this occurs with the madcap everyday environment of Mercury in Pisces, the mixed messaging and lucid dreaming. And, the final irony, on a super-low-ebb Dark Moon.
You’d reap the whirlwind but the remote is stuck down the back of the couch cushions.
