2019 Mercury Retrograde in Pisces 05 March to 28 March
Uranus enters Taurus 06 March
Pisces New Moon 06 March
Mercury the planet of our thoughts, perceptions, and our communication style entered his retrograde shadow on Feb 20 when he reached 16 degrees of Pisces (that is the degree he moves forward at on March 28). The day before (Feb 19) Mercury merged with Neptune at 15 degrees Pisces (illusion and deception or illumination and truth). That set the tone for this Mercury Rx journey. Neptune is the planetary guide for Mercury Rx in Pisces and also for the Pisces New Moon cycle which is activated on March 06 at 15 degrees Pisces 47 minutes (healing, forgiveness, and completion). This New Moon cycle is with us until the Aries New Moon on April 05 (inspired new beginnings).. We are in the energy of completion big time until then. On March 05 at 1.19 pm EST Mercury turns retrograde at 29 degrees Pisces. The 29th degree represents “something coming to an end”. But we may be still working on whatever that is for us until Mercury clears his retrograde shadow on April 16/17 when he enters Aries (new thoughts and perceptions).
While Mercury is retrograde in Pisces it may be difficult to think clearly if we are relying on logic. The messenger planet is the Trickster when retrograde. So all the usual cautions are in place (don’t start anything new, recycle, review, reassess, revise, and be careful while driving). But on a spiritual plane Mercury Retrograde is Hermes/Thoth, the guardian of Sacred Knowledge and Wisdom. In Pisces he activates the Poetic Soul seeking Mystical Connection. Pisces is the dreamer and searches for ways to make the unseen world seen through art, poetry, dance, music, and life. While Mercury visits Pisces, especially when he is retrograde, we may want to escape the harshness of the world. What we need to do is connect with our Sacred Center and shine our Special Soul Light out into the world. Instead of escaping we need to be PRESENT. That is to be connected with ourselves. This Mercury Rx is an excellent time for journeying within and connecting with Source. When we discover our Inner Universe we find The Oneness of All. Meditation, journaling, creating art, dancing, are all tools we can embrace during this retrograde to make that connection. Again the actual retrograde motion is March 05 to 28 but the retrograde shadow began Feb 20 and ends April 16/17. Over the last few years I have found the shadow period to be significant.
The Animal Totem guides, Clan Mother, and Archangels for Mercury retrograde in Pisces are the same as the guides for the Pisces New Moon. Rather than repeating them I have included their spiritual gifts in the New Moon post to follow.
Uranus enters Taurus - 06 March - 3.26 am EST - We should say Uranus re-enters Taurus. We had a preview of this planet of unexpected change in the sign of what is of true value and importance in 2018 from May 15 to Nov 06. This time he is here until April 2026. Uranus like to shake up the status quo by creating situations that require breaking out of the box we are stuck in. Issues of money and security are on the agenda but it is also about finding the security within and becoming empowered regardless of what curve balls we are thrown. Of all the planets Uranus is the most unpredictable so “expect the unexpected”. While he visits Taurus our Animal Totem guides are Beaver, clearing the old and Building the New (Northern Hemisphere) and Snake, shedding the old and making space for the new (Southern Hemisphere). The Clan Mother who guides us all is Listening Woman, the keeper of the Stillness and Inner Knowing. She teaches us to hear the truth by listening to our hearts. This Clan Mother is the guide for the Uranus journey through Taurus. You can find more of her story in The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams.
Uranus at 00 degrees Taurus activates the Leo Full Moon Eclipse of Jan 21, 2019. The theme of that Eclipse was breakthrough and achievement, a coming together. If the breakthrough has not happened for you yet Uranus will help to open the door. He is square (finding new ways of doing things and motivation for change) the Eclipse degree of 00 Leo/Aquarius. It is really about being centered in the compassionate heart with Loving Kindness for All.
Pisces New Moon - 06 March - 11.04 am EST- We have already mentioned that Neptune now at 16 degrees Pisces is the planetary ruler of this New Moon. The Moon (our intuitive/emotional wisdom) will merge with Neptune at 11.47 am EST and the Sun (the spirit of who we are) will meet Neptune at 8.00 pm EST. This is definitely a Neptunian Moon Time. The questions Neptune asks is what is true? What is not true? What can never be true? What should never be true? The world right now is dealing with deception and untruths in many political arenas. This Moon cycle just might expose the illusions and offer us all the path of illumination. Neptune is travelling with Vesta at 16 degrees Pisces. She is the Temple Priestess who is guardian of the Sacred Flame that is found in our Sacred Center. She guides and supports us as we commit to being of Spiritual Service.
The Soul Centered ruler of this Pisces New Moon and the Mercury Rx journey in Pisces is Pluto at 22 degrees Capricorn. Pluto is Lord of the Underworld and tears down the old structures that no longer work. He is associated with dictatorships (in all forms). Capricorn is associated with government, big business, and society. Will we see walls fall? Pay attention to what is going on in the world March 25 to April 05. Pluto will be travelling with the South Node in Capricorn (releasing the limitation and restrictions of the past). Apr 05 is the Aries New Moon of inspired new possibilities. For this Pisces Moon cycle Pluto is ruled by Saturn at 18 degrees Capricorn (strengthening our spiritual foundation). Saturn is sextile (easy opportunities) the New Moon and Neptune/Vesta (enlightenment) and trine (removal of obstacles) Mars at 13 degrees Taurus (action based on integrity). This is going to be a very interesting Moon cycle.
In the Northern Hemisphere Medicine Wheel our Animal Totem guides for Pisces (New Moon and Mercury Rx) are Cougar, spiritual power, and Wolf, the teacher who guides us through change and transformation. The astrological Earth is in Virgo and she is guided by Brown Bear, introspection, healing and The Healer. They are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere Medicine Wheel. The Clan Mother for Pisces is Weighs The Truth. She is the keeper of equality, the guardian of justice, and the destroyer of deception. She teaches us how to accept the truth.
Our Archangel guides are Uriel, peace and love, and Aurora Grace, harmony and balance. They are guardians of the 6th Ray of Idealism and Devotion. Pisces is also found on the 2nd Ray of Love/Wisdom with Archangels Jophiel, creative power and vision, and Constance Christine, spiritual illumination.
Whatever you experience in this next few weeks remember to go with the flow.
