The Sun glided into the Water sign of Pisces on Wednesday at 4:57 AM GMT. Instinct is the key here and will continue to be so for the next four weeks. As long as we can make sure that we can carry out the tasks that we can influence, as well as possible, this can help to reduce the more negative impact of the Mercury Retrograde that is also in Pisces.
Governed by the Water element, the 12th zodiac sign is closely allied to its traditional ruler Neptune, that of illumination and dreams. The glyph of Pisces is of two fishes swimming in opposing directions, their mouths joined by a line suggesting that with Pisces people their lives and emotions are often ebbing and flowing and essentially are changeable. This is reinforced by the Mutable, almost malleable, quality of Pisceans. Pisces people can be very compassionate and giving, but also, conversly very cool.
Pisces is renowned for its nebulous, flowing mist, and mixed with a Mercury retrograde in Pisces we could be in for a double hit. And Mercury Retrogrades’ are notorious for miscommunications, technological and travel issues that can leave us vexed. With the water element in play, fact can at times prove stranger than fiction.
With this Mercury Retrograde mostly occuring in the Sign of Pisces, and underway from February 16th, the Sun’s journey through Pisces this could, potentially, muddy the waters of communication even more, especially as oceanic Neptune is presently located at home in Pisces and has been since 2012.
If this wasn’t fishy enough, we also have a Pisces New Moon angle to the feisty Mars occurring on the 23rd February, adding a boiling hot dimension to the mix. Fortunately this New Moon links also to the the diverse, Earth located Uranus, and along with Mars, can bring greater innovation, drive, determination, and a desire for tangible achievements. Also the other ruler of Pisces Jupiter is forging an inspiring link to Neptune just now, which can heighten our senses in all sorts of positive ways but most of all if we tune into our 6th senses, which is what Pisces energy asks us to do, so there is much to go for.
There is so much excitement around this Pisces New Moon, with both Mars and Uranus urging us to be more radical in our approach. With Venus forging an opposition to the retrograding Janus, and both being T squared by the potent Pluto, and expansive Jupiter, care is though needed around speculative ventures and also relationships.
