Mercury is the planet that rules over thought and communication, and it is moving into Pisces today at around 8:32 PM. While Mercury only spends around 3 weeks in each sign, this transit is going to be a significant one.

Since January, Mercury has been in Aquarius, which has kept us more intellectually aligned, and likely pushed us inwards into our minds. For a change of pace, as Mercury enters into dreamy Pisces, we can expect a much different trajectory, energetically speaking.

Because Mercury rules over thought and communication, when it moves into a new sign, our way of thinking shifts as well.

The energy of Mercury in Pisces is all about spiritual growth, and getting in touch with your feelings healthily. During this time, you are going to be getting some deep gut feelings, and because our intuition is at an all-time high, if you’ve never trusted in yourself before, now is most definitely the time.

You may also find during this time that your daydreams will reach an all-time high. You may feel like your head is in the clouds, and you are lost in a different world. Because of this, you may feel drawn to procrastinate. Additionally, you may be feeling the need to rest due to mental exhaustion.

Another by-product of this transit is heightened dreams, that will be extremely vivid. You may awaken, feeling like whatever has taken place in your dream happened.

During this time, it’s important to stay grounded. Do breathing exercises upon waking and write down your dreams. Listen to the little ‘gut feelings’ you get, and then log when they were right. Another beneficial way to enjoy this transit is to work on your spiritual practice.

One of the major themes during this time is to balance the spiritual with the practical. Find a way to channel your fantasies into your reality.

And if you’ve been waiting for a good time to learn divination or astrology, now is a perfect time.

You may feel heightened emotions during this time, which can be either beneficial for emotional healing if you let it. Just be careful not to get so caught up in your emotions that you react to the emotion itself, rather than the lesson it is teaching.

Above all, this is a wonderful transition and a dreamy one at that. Explore your dreams, make the ones most notable a reality, and trust in yourself! It’s going to be a wild ride, but one that proves very useful to your spiritual path.
