Today Mercury stations, ready for its first retrograde spell for 2019 which will run from 6-29 March. This particular one begins on the same day as the New Moon in Pisces and also coincides with the ingress of Uranus into Taurus – quite a seminal (and liminal) day when a lot is likely to remain up in the air.
Traditionally, Mercury is detrimented in Pisces (it is exalted in precise and orderly Virgo which sits opposite Pisces on the zodiac wheel) , so this one could really mess with your head if you allow your fears, insecurities & morbid imagination to take over.
The good news is that most of the confusion and mix-ups this one causes will be largely self-inflicted. Going with the flow, surrendering to not knowing and mental self-discipline will be essential if you’re to emerge from this one unscathed.
The question is whether you can get yourself to slow down and let go of your inner control freak. Consider this a test of your faith in the inherent goodness of the cosmos.
My advice: watch a re-run of ‘Life is Beautiful’ and go off grid for a bit. You may rediscover your connection to something truly magical if you do, especially if the Sabian symbol for the New Moon in Pisces is anything to go by.
Remember: Mercury retrograde is not inherently malefic, so have a little faith. Sometimes we all need to hit the pause button, reboot, regroup and re-imagine what outcomes we’d like to manifest in our lives. Consider this one of those times.
