If you’re noticing your thought patterns taking a more serious turn today and tomorrow, chances are you are not alone. This is not necessarily a bad thing, though for some it might ask for some extra mindfulness.
The planets setting that agenda are retrograde Mercury in Aquarius square Saturn in Scorpio, exact Wednesday at 2:11 am EST. Before that aspect peaks, however, the big event is the Sun’s entrance to Pisces. That happens at 12:59 pm EST today, bringing us into the last phase of this astrological year: the creative, inspirational, erotic, inclusively spiritual waters of Pisces.
Sun in Pisces is calling us to get back in touch with our own sense of inner knowing, to be our own intuitive authority and have faith in ourselves. This forms the backdrop for Mercury-Saturn, which carries its own dynamic of authority. On one level, it’s a parent-child dynamic, with Saturn in the role of parent and Mercury in the role of child.
Saturn is urging focus and depth; Mercury, especially retrograde, might feel a little distracted. You’re being asked to step into the role of being your own authority figure. Throughout life we often find ourselves either answering to an outside authority, acting as that figure, or else internalizing that quality as a means of accomplishing our goals and living ethically. This is a moment for that last option.
However Mercury square Saturn, especially with Mercury retrograde and with both planets in fixed signs, is also a caution not to get stuck in negative thought patterns. Negative thoughts have a kind of seduction to them for many people; if that describes you, remind yourself that it’s possible to get serious about important matters without that seriousness having to drag you down, or getting you fixated on worst-case scenarios, or feeding an obsession with ‘what happened last time’.
