“Hope is a memory of the future.” Gabriel Marcel
Mercury is newly in Pisces and one of the Sabian symbols associated with this is, “Moonlit fields, once Babylon, are blooming white.” This symbol is a reminder of spring with the potential for rebirth and a return to hope, openness and innocence that can be present in each new start.
Mercury will transit close to Neptune- the planet of dreams and creative visualization- through the 29th.
It is wise to set aside sometime to return to your world of dreams and to create a space for a hopeful new start. Neptune is associated with a “lost Eden.” It also bodes well to reclaim lost dreams in order to create a form for them in your life now from a perspective of increased wisdom.
It is a good time to visit places that are sources of inspiration to you.
“The earth laughs in flowers.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Proceed from the dream outward.” Carl Jung
Mercury stations retrograde February 6 at 3 degrees of Pisces. Mercury in Pisces is a dreamy, intuitive placement and it is stationing in close proximity to Neptune the planet of dreams, of imagination and spirituality.
Dreams are the seeds of manifestation and it is a good time to dream and spend time with poetry, films and books that inspire and elevate the mind.
It is also a good time to consider what role inspiration and imagination play in your thought process. Can you can strike a better balance?
As Dr. King reminded us in his “I Have a Dream” speech, dreams can be the origin and motivating power behind significant action and accomplishment.
Time can feel distorted when Neptune’s influence is strong. Double check the pragmatism of any decisions that need to be made this month.
Also make an effort to be very clear in communication as confusion can more easily occur.
Mercury will enter Aquarius midmonth and then station direct the first of March.
