For the first three days of the week, Mercury is still retrograde, meaning that its apparent motion is backward in the sky. As a result, it feels as if our minds are moving backward as well. We keep losing car keys, misplacing phones, and communication with others is fouled up and confused. This is a time to re-view and re-work. Avoid signing any contracts or buying anything with electrical or mechanical parts. Get back money that is owed to you and pay back any loans that you have.
It is a time to grow the dreams that we began at the time of the New Moon last Wednesday. At the same time, however, remember that Mercury is retrograde.
Your energy may feel low as the week begins. We are coming up on the New Moon, suggesting that our emotional reserves are tapped. Monday finds us with a lunar energy in Aquarius, suggesting that we’ll get by with a little help from our friends! Seek out like-minded individuals and work to raise the vibration by lifting each other up and encouraging each other on all fronts. A bit of mantra goes a long way!
This week we may feel more introspective. Our attention has turned inward. Choose yoga sets that are more meditative as opposed to those that are more physically challenging. Remember also that we are under the influence of the Pisces Sun. We are more sensitive than usual. Have an urge to pick up every stray dog on the street? Want to take home every kitten in the animal shelter? This is to be expected. Furthermore, we may feel more vulnerable, more easily hurt.
For the next four weeks, the sign of the fish reigns. There is a background feeling of compassion and extra sensitivity. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, the sign closest to complete merger with the one. That’s why you often find Pisces people kinda “out there.” They are the ones in the clouds. Indeed, this is the time to dream. Let your imagination run wild. Let your emotions out through expressions like music, dance and poetry. Spend more time by the water. Walks by the ocean, rivers and long baths will be extra rejuvenating during this time.
