Mercury and Neptune

“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

Dreams and Mercury in Pisces

The time. Redeem
The unread vision in the higher dream
While jeweled unicorns draw by the gilded hearse.” TS Eliot

One of my favorite Sabian symbols is “An Old Sea Captain in a Rocking Chair on the Porch Of His Cottage ….. An Ancient Pottery Bowl Filled With Fresh Violets Sits on a Table Near Him. ” I like the feeling this symbol evokes – an older person with time to sit on the porch overlooking the sea , perhaps, with the time to review his life from a place of wisdom – wisdom which is both ancient – symbolized by the pottery bowl – and renewed – as with the fresh violets.
Throughout the month it bodes well to revisit dreams from a place of increased wisdom. Like the sea captain it is likely that we can – with time – view dreams from a place of wise pragmatism – that can reveal how to build a solid structures for them through patience and perseverance.
Look also for information about how to better handle obstacles as they appear in the process – how to inspire and support dreams through life’s challenging moments.
