Sun in Pisces / Mercury Direct – February 2021
We begin the week in an energetic shift, with the Sun in dreamy Pisces, which softens the backdrop and loves to merge with All That Is. Mercury is at a standstill, preparing to turn Direct on Feb 20, but hovering in place for a few days, with accurate info and forward motion out of reach for now. Allow any stubborn resistance to gently unwind and dissolve, as you align in flow as much as possible.
There is a dynamic aspect today – Venus square Mars (yin vs. yang), which can manifest creativity or a magnetic connection, but can also create friction. Attraction and conflict. What you desire and how you get it – definitely fertile ground for stimulation, just know that what’s “hot” can burn you too, so tread carefully. This can be sexual attraction, a lover’s quarrel and makeup sex – or creating fabulous art.
Mercury turns Direct on Feb 20, but it will take a week for it to get up to speed, so adjust expectations and/or your inclination to push forward right now. Use the nonlinear Pisces energy to integrate what you’ve learned, as well as how you’ve shifted since late Jan when the Retrograde began. You can utilize your evolved mindset to vision your next steps via contemplation, which can open new doors and possibilities for you.
A word of advice to create in alignment with your Higher Self: focus on what’s calling to you, rather than linear mental thinking (do this to get that). The magic of Pisces is the intuitive connection that can show you an image, offer a message or feeling to guide you forward. Trust it. Don’t think yourself out of what your heart and spirit wants. They hold the path to fulfillment – and at times your egoic, human Self is the last to know what’s really good for you!
Authenticity, independence and a futuristic vision is the name of the game for Mercury in Aquarius. If you’re stuck in old thinking and you hit a wall, the invitation is to change your direction, your methods of operation and/or your perspective. Use this quiet week to see what arises for you and tap into your own genius (P.S. It’s not traditional!). The Sun in imaginative Pisces and Mercury in brilliant Aquarius is a winning combination for creative, intuitive, visionary thinking.
On Feb 24, Mars trines Pluto, creating a profoundly powerful dynamic for initiating a task or project and seeing it through to completion. Mars is the maverick, pioneer, warrior and Pluto rules power and transformation. Together in harmony they are an unbeatable pair, as they are on a mission to manifest their intention, on purpose, with an incredible drive to succeed.
If you have a major venture, problem or work to tackle, this is the day to do it – or at least begin. Mars-Pluto can gives you confidence and strength where you may feel weak or in need of support. Yes, use this well!
Venus moves into Pisces on Feb 25, where it is exalted. This is the higher expression of earthly love in the sign of Divine Love, imagination, compassion, empathy and connection to All That Is. Blissful love, beautiful creativity and charity for those in need are all high on the menu through March 21. What the world needs now, is love sweet love…
Also on Feb 25, the Sun sextiles Uranus, ushering in a creative change or new opportunities. However it plays out, it will be for the better, whether it’s personal for you or collective for all. Explore openings, new avenues and be actively involved in change – you never know what will happen!
During this week of turnaround and next layer of awakening to new possibilities, take time to consider where you are and where you’re going. This is a week of potential blessings and recovery from the extremely intense road we’ve been on. Allow yourself space to recover, connect and open, trusting that more will be revealed as you move forward. This is a week of grace for you.
“Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” ~ Roald Dahl
As always, I am grateful for your presence on our journey together.
