We’re already under the murky and intoxicating influence of Mercury in Pisces, but now add the challenging aspect from Jupiter and you have all of the best and worst of this planetary combo times 10. Jupiter is struggling to find truth in the gossip-laden and dual sign of Gemini. Confusion abounds from both the current Mercury and Jupiter placements, so now that they are on the cosmic battlefield, so to speak, we can bet that our minds are about to go off the deepest of the deep ends with all kinds of nonsense.

The best way to navigate this exaggerated influence of temporary insanity is to take everything with a grain of salt. Do not believe all that you hear, read or see. Better yet, question everything and wait until after March 17 (when Mercury goes direct) to make any major decisions, pass judgment or jump to any half-baked conclusions. You’ll see gossip and backbiting on the rise under this influence, so watch your tongue and make sure that you’re not falling prey to the temptation to malign someone who isn’t there to defend their person.

You’ll also see people getting totally carried away with their ideas, opinions and paranoid delusions, no matter how obviously ludicrous. Watch people vehemently defend their craziness even when all arrows point to the fact that they are definitely off their rocker. Keep your sense of humor and watch how many absurd ideas get thrown out as some kind of gospel. The more positive side of this influence is for going within and challenging your own illusions or self-deception. Where are you still lying to yourself or undermining your own truth? These are the questions to ask now.
