On February 18, just after midnight in Atlantic Canada, Mercury moves into Pisces! This is my first post since New Years’, and what an appropriate energy for a Pisces like myself to start blogging again — Mercury in Pisces is about expressing yourself from your deepest depths, empowering yourself through your emotions and intuition, and channeling these strengths into creative endeavours including writing, painting/drawing, and even self-care activities like journaling and taking baths to stoke that creative impulse. The tarot cards associated with Mercury and Pisces are I – The Magician and XVIII – The Moon, the first being about having all the resources needed to succeed and being ready to communicate your “personal power,” the second about making sense of your personal cycles, learning to see in a “different light,” and going within to learn more about yourself and your truths. Mercury in Pisces is a great time for “mental healing,” for making sense of where your fears are rooted and for seeking new perspectives on how to use that knowledge for self-empowerment! Mercury’s transit through Pisces is all about connecting with what makes you happy from the inside out, by bringing your inner world forth to be loved and celebrated <3<3
I’m already feeling this energy and have felt totally inspired the past few days in terms of new ways to express myself through my blog, my business, my tarot offerings, as well as two really exciting creative projects that I can’t wait to share! I drew some cards from the Astrological Oracle, Nature-Speak Oracle, and Tarot Mucha for how to make the most of the energy of Mercury in Pisces. I laid out a crystal grid of Apache tear for grounding through emotional understanding, carnelian for creative energy and emotional connection, moonstone to connect with and understand your personal cycles, raw sodalite to help you express yourself authentically, raw black tourmaline for protection of your personal energy, amegreen to connect your heart with your intuition, amazonite to balance your masculine and feminine dualities, raw emerald to deeply connect with your creativity from your nurturing heart, amethyst for Higher Self connection and dispelling of any anxiety you are feeling, ruby zoisite for heart-centered modifications of the patterns that are no longer serving you, howlite for unshakeable spiritual connection, and labradorite for further connection with your intuition that allows you to feel safe “going with the flow.”

The cards have such an amazing tendency to reflect the intentions set before they are pulled — I was looking for a way to connect with both Mercury’s quick and communicative energy (lots of new project ideas) with the more Piscean free-flowing, intuitive and boundary-less energy. The cards say yes, keep thinking and coming up with new ideas, because they are really going to take you places — but first, get your space in order! Write these ideas down! You won’t be able to ficus on what you want to be doing if your space is a mess, if there is boring-but-important paperwork to be taken care of, if you don’t finish your other projects to make room for this new work that you want to be able to give your Whole Self over to. As added encouragement, taking the time to get things in order before you dive in and start creating all these wonderful new things will in turn improve your relationships, first with yourself as you feel ride and responsibility through checking off your list of mundane tasks, but also with your partner and the other people you share your life with as you will free up more time to focus on them too through gaining a grip on the loose ends that winter tends to find us letting go of. The days are getting longer, and you can trust that your energy levels are expanding too! Keep picking away, taking time also to keep yourself excited about what you’ll soon be able to spend all your time doing — for now, find the fun in creating new systems to make it all work!
