Intuition and the Big Picture
Under the influence of Mercury in Pisces, and depending on how this transit affects other planets in your birth chart, your intuitive powers are strong, while your rational mind might be on hiatus. You’re in touch with the big picture and higher vision, but the details of daily life escape you. Miscommunications and misunderstandings are possible, as you lose focus and it becomes more difficult to tell the difference between dream and reality.
Feelings Rather Than Logic
You make decisions based on feelings rather than logic now. You’re also more sensitive to other people’s feelings, and your decisions could be motivated by compassion. You may not be able to explain how you came to a certain conclusion. Words might elude you now, and you long to express yourself in non-verbal ways.
Flexible and Adaptable
Your mind is flexible, adaptable and wide open to other people’s ideas — possibly too open. It might be hard for you to know what you’re thinking, or to separate your own opinions from others’. You might be accused of being wishy-washy, and you could have a tendency toward procrastination, avoidance or escapism.
Projects that require organization and attention to detail could be frustrating now. Better to focus on dreaming up your ideal vision for the future, and getting clear about the big picture of what you want to create. Channel your enhanced imagination into creative outlets like music, painting and poetry.
Mercury Retrograde in Pisces
The retrograde Mercury in Pisces is not the best influence for composing lengthy statistical reports on the use of widgets in the 1800s. Nor is this a great time to read up on the latest tax laws for the coming year. In fact, any task that requires detailed scrutiny should best be left alone until another time.
This dreamy period will make you stare off into space for hours on end. Conversations have a way of drifting into strange and surreal territory. Facts are hard to hold on to and your memory may be less dependable than usual. You are highly sensitive to the energy around you. If you sense any aggression from the other party, you’ll probably be tempted to run away and hide.
This would not be the time to engage in any intellectual debates, for you may have a hard time defending your views. You can use this period for your creative benefit. Artistic work that you might have started once, but shelved, can be revisited with positive results. You are also especially gullible and should avoid fast-talking salespeople peddling pink robots. Take this time to clean up clutter and organize papers.
