Mercury in Pisces
Mercury, the planet of thought and communication, enters the water sign Pisces.
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Mercury is Thoth. Thoth holds open a channel between divine realms and personal consciousness. Pisces is aligned with Sothis, the Blue Star Sirius. Sothis represents cosmic consciousness and the attributes of the Bodhisattva. In its highest expression, Pisces understands that we are all channels for Divine Energy. And, the sensitivity that comes with this sign can be overwhelming.
Individuals born with Mercury in Pisces are naturally plugged into the consciousness of the collective. These are tender folks and they can take on other people’s emotional reality, confusing it with their own. For their own wellbeing, these individuals must learn to recognize when they are being affected by the thought processes of those around them. The suffering of others can seep into their consciousness, causing great pain and fluctuations in thought and emotion.
This is an extended transit of Mercury through Pisces and we will all experience a heightened sensitivity to collective emotional shifts. This will mean an increased empathy for others, accompanied by more compassion and kindness. And, there is also the potential for collective hysteria and even madness.
The best use of this transit is to consciously connect with the Blue Star Sirius and receive her messages. Listen to The Oracle, receiving and transmitting for yourself, those you love and as your contribution to the expansion of collective consciousness.
Mercury/Thoth will turn retrograde in Pisces/Sothis on February 16, returning to Aquarius on March 4. Mercury will reenter Pisces from March 16 through April 10/11.
