This Mercury retrograde begins with the mercurial planet conjunct Neptune in Pisces, which may well add a little vagueness, especially for the next few days. This influence will hang around in some way for the whole retrograde period, and probably until Mercury comes back to the conjunction with Neptune, around 23rd March.
Where Mercury is precise and detailed, Neptune is nebulous and vague. Mercury is rational and logical, while Neptune is intuitive and imaginative. Mercury is the mind in mundane life, while Neptune is at one with spirit. And in Pisces, the Neptunian qualities will be exacerbated, meaning that there is a chance for delusion to go along with the heightened imagination.
So, you put all that together, and it is unlikely that the mind will be working in a straight line, especially this weekend! If it all seems perplexing, bewildering, befuddling … then that’s probably because it is! Go with it.
But, looking on the positive side, the interaction between Mercury and Neptune is a channel between the logical mind and intuitive. Used wisely, this is a magical time for connection with higher consciousness.
