If you recall, Mercury was in Pisces for a few days at the beginning of February and he got quite close to Neptune at that time before he went retrograde and entered back into Aquarius where he travelled for much of February and March.
Now, with Mercury moving direct, he's in Pisces again and joins Neptune. This conjunction can highly influence our state of mind. Many people will favor an altered state of consciousness this weekend, whether it be through taking a spiritually oriented journey through meditation, lucid dreaming, daydreaming, staying up late to the point of pleasant delerium. This time may also bring out the desire to have more than a few glasses of wine or other manners of having more mystically inclined states of mind.
More importantly though, this is a time for your mind to evolve into a state of higher love, compassion and understanding of higher ideals. The suffering of people and defenseless animals in the world could strike a chord with many now, allowing you to move towards a prayerful mindset leading to the desire to make the world a better place. A more conscious and compassionate approach to food may become more appealing for many.
With Mercury and Neptune connecting harmoniously with Jupiter in fellow water sign of Cancer, we are further lead to have emotionally potent moments where we consider the purpose and meaning of our lives, our philosophy of life, and dream of bigger possibilities for ourselves and others.
Exploring your feelings through painting is recommended. Working with water colors in an abstract way would be the perfect exploratory practice now. Music as well, can be especially moving.
Writing can be a highly divinatory practice now where revelations come to the surface. It is a time where logic and imagination melt together and take us into dream lands. The subconscious mind is ready to be explored.
Visualization, meditation on an amethyst stone, wearing purples and using lavender herb or essential oil will tune you in to this Mercurial and Neptunian energy well.
Enjoy the tapping into the realm of fantasy this weekend.
Mercury will be in Pisces until April 7th.
