Mercury Retrograde Ends

“We have this way of talking, and we have another.
Despite what we wish and what we fear may happen,
We are alive with other life, as clear stones
Take form in the mountain.” Rumi

“Hope is a memory of the future.” Gabriel Marcel

Venus enters the sign of Pisces on Tuesday this week indicating a time that bodes well for creativity as well as spiritual growth and evolution. The sign of Pisces – the final sign of the zodiac – is associated with wisdom attained traveling though the lessons of the previous eleven signs. Venus is exalted in this sign meaning it is a good time to expand consciousness, to grow in compassion and in unconditional love. This muse- type energy indicates porous boundaries however and it is wise to have strong boundaries in place for the few weeks  or so.

Mercury will station direct – ending the retrograde period – on Friday at 16 degrees of Pisces. Mercury will station conjunct Neptune at this time indicating a foggy, smokescreen type environment. These two planets have been traveling together for awhile now and it can be difficult at times to separate truth from fiction and illusion from reality. The downside of this duo can be deception of some kind.

It bodes well to make an extra effort to stay centered and grounded this week  because the atmosphere can lead to increased worry if not held in check.

It is wise to note any information that surfaces within a few days before and a few days after the Mercury station as this time frame  is associated with a culmination of information. It’s best to assume not all the information is and to make extra space for down time and restorative time over the next several weeks.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is, “In a quiet moment, a creative individual experiences the flow of inspiration.”
