Explore Your Dreams: Mercury Retrograde in Pisces



by Cathy Pagano February 18, 2013 11:44 PM EST
We’re coming up to another Mercury retrograde, but from all reports, it’s been feeling like Mercury retrograde since the holidays!  Is that your experience?

Mercury goes retrograde from February 23 to March 17, 2013 in Pisces.  Mercury will be traveling back and forth through Pisces along with the Sun, Venus, Neptune, Chiron and Mars, checking in with our sense of purpose, our heart-connections, our spiritual vision, our collective wounds and our desires.  All this while swimming along in the cosmic waters of Pisces, the realm of the collective unconscious!

Mercury goes retrograde Saturday morning, February 23rd at 1:41am PST/ 4:41am EST/ 9:41am GMT.  The Sabian symbol for Mercury stationing at 20* Pisces is: A table set for an evening meal.  This seems to indicate that there will be nourishment for us even here at the end of an age.  The needs of our soul and its destiny will be met!  We just need a dose of Piscean faith—and imagination!

In Pisces, we connect with something larger than ourselves, that place of unity where we just know we’re all one—that we’re all in this together.  This is the anecdote for patriarchy’s insistence on ‘rugged individualism’.  Pisces asks us to trust in Spirit and let go of our boundaries so we can connect with others on a heart level.  Mercury in Pisces also gets us in touch with the old archetypal stories which can help us in these confusing and chaotic times.  What stories inspire you to live your values?  Which stories inspire you to take up your personal destiny?

As most of you know, Mercury goes retrograde 3 times a year and when you add in the shadow periods before and after the true retrograde (when Mercury travels over the degrees of the retrograde forward, backward and forward again), it adds up to about 2 months each time or almost 6 months of the year.  It seems the cosmos want us to learn to think before we make up our minds!

Mercury is considered the planet of communication, travel, business and the Mind.  When Mercury goes retrograde, these aspects of life are affected.  So when your computer crashes, your travel plans are in disarray, and your car breaks down, Mercury has a message for you.  Mercury is also the Trickster who trips you up when you’re off-course.  So pay attention to what comes up during the 2 weeks before Mercury goes retrograde and you’ll know what you have to reconsider during its retrograde.  The Greek version of Mercury is Hermes, the psycho-pomp, or guide to souls.  The highways and byways we are led down during Mercury retrograde might be Hermes leading your soul to its next appointment with destiny. 

Mercury tells us what we need to review, redo, revisit, and re-vision.  Its retrograde phase is also a great time to slow down, meditate and remember to breathe.  Learn to listen—to yourself, to each other and to Nature.  You’ll find that once you go deeper into the unconscious realms, you’ll pick up information in different ways than you usually do. That’s because you’ll be more attuned to your feminine right brain.  This new information will help you enlarge your perspective—hence the re-doing!

So pay attention to your dreams.  They'll contain a great deal of wisdom.
