Mercury in Pisces: you know that you know

A guest post by Rose Birt

Mercury in Pisces

Mercury in Pisces starts 16 March 2021, and offers a period of self-reflection and realignment within ourselves. It can give heightened sense of awareness in our present moments and can help us create the discipline that we need to experience our life in the fullest, best feeling way possible.

Mercury in Pisces can help us slow down, find our center and learn to invoke the fun and joy that can be anywhere we are. Life is not supposed to be all work and our Mercury in Pisces energy reminds us that our greatest growth can come in times of play and ease.

Endings and beginnings are highlighted during Mercury in Pisces, along with the sheer strength of what it means to go through a transitionary period of your life into the newest version of yourself. Think about the story you often tell about yourself, to yourself and to others, and if there are changes to be made, this is a great time to reflect on who you are and who you are becoming.

Mercury in Pisces encourages us to dissolve the limitations around ourselves by first learning to clear the blockages in our thoughts and the way we communicate our story to others.

But before we do that, lets utilize another Piscean theme: acceptance and unconditionality.

Mercury in Pisces: acceptance and unconditionality

Can you accept that your life may not be where you want it to be right now? Can you accept that you were born into a family that maybe could not see the real you? Can you accept that you grew up learning to trust other people’s perceptions and beliefs about your world and yourself? Mercury in Pisces can help you learn these lessons.

Can you accept that what is true for others does not have to be true for you? Can you accept that other people have lessons that have nothing to do with you and that you have lessons that have nothing to do with others? Can you accept that nobody bears the blame for your life experience? And that it is all okay and how it is meant to be in this vast, divinely intelligent universe?

If you can, this is where your story starts to shift, and this transit of Mercury in Pisces in an opportunity to make this shift happen for you.

Can you also accept that you are an individual who thinks individual thoughts and has individual feelings but is connected in spirit to something bigger that connects us all? Can you practice being unconditional with your thoughts about yourself and others?

Can you surrender to your own knowing and remember that things are, in fact, not as they appear to be, but as You appear to be? Once you learn to be unconditional with yourself, you are free to remember your purpose and you are free to truly be free. This is the gift of Mercury in Pisces.

In true Piscean fashion – that feels like a lot to accept. But nobody is asking you to accept it all at once. Mercury in Pisces is about stepping into the present moment and practicing what you know to be true. In your practice of acceptance, you will find the sweet spot of what you control and what you do not control. And then it becomes more simplified once you realize that you are always able to control your thoughts, the way you perceive yourself and the world you live in. Your story and your life changes with this power.

Every single person has this ability. Which is why one of the great lessons of our Piscean energy through a Mercury filter is our inborn capability to turn our victim story into our hero’s journey – all on our own. All because we remember that we can shift the inner energy of our thoughts, feelings and emotions to form the outer energy of our experiences.

Mercury in Pisces is reminding you that circumstances do not have to change in order for you to accept or feel better within them. There is too much power being given away with that belief. You can observe your thought space. You can swim around, beneath, and over any thought/feeling form within you. You can know what belongs to you and what does not belong to you; and you can choose the path forward that feels the best and you can know that it is in your absolute power and birthright to do so.

Deep within, you know that you know this.

The cultural significance of Mercury in Pisces

Many cultural and societal institutions are transforming before our very eyes; our personal relationships are changing because many of us are waking up to our own inner desires and purpose. What we used to know about authority is transitioning from an outer construct into an inner template because we intuitively know that we are not meant to be controlled by any one person, place or thing and we are finding that freedom in the one place it will always and forever be: Our Thoughts.

Allow this Mercury in Pisces period to unfold these reflections within you. Observe your inner space with reverence and unconditional love. You, as an individual, are always connected to the Source of all energy and you came into your body with a purpose to express your unique vibration.

Allow others to live their life, believe what they believe and see what they see. That is not your work. Your work is to fine tune your own perception. Focus on who you are, what you want, where you are going, what you are wanting to say and everything within you that you have to share. You know that it is in there, waiting for you. You are the only one who can move your life forward and into the joy of creating your experience, consciously and self-aware.

Knowing is an action verb. Once you know who you are, who you really are, your every choice is a testament to that knowing and it is then that we start to transition from blaming others for our circumstance into taking responsibility for them – we discipline ourselves into who we instinctively know ourselves to be.

Feeling by feeling, thought by thought, present moment to present moment. You are never behind, you are never going backward. You are who you have been waiting for; and there is no better time than now to see yourself truly, completely and with the unconditional love that is always there for you.

To practice this knowing within you is to reimagine, reinvent and revitalize your entire life experience. This is the gift that Mercury in Pisces gives to us.

Sending you all so much love and peace on your path, Rose
