Mercury Retrograde Block: 2/16-3/9 | Mantras & Prompts to follow

Pisces magic of the two fish lies in the duality between our deeper psyche with intuitive knowings and our action oriented emotional drives.

New Moons are time of setting new intention.

The work has been done with the Eclipses throughout the holidays which have amplified the abilities to recognize what ignites us and catapults us into what it is we truly desire to bring to fruition within ourselves and our place in the world.

It is time to go in and ask our emotions what we feel like we really want to continue showing up for in ourselves and in our mission. Pisces signs use their dream states to bring themselves into realities. They dream and and act off of that dream. Where as many other signs operate in their realities and dream later.

This New Moon is a time to allow yourself to dream, to desire, and to get lost in that beauty. Eventually you will come back down and set yourself up for success to accomplish that lush dream for which you are navigating.

The last Full Moon was is Leo: getting us to shine our center-stage, crowing-wearing self and accepting that as who we are. This New Moon comes with the work we want to do to continue to support that understanding of our “self worth”.

Mars in Capricorn is in large support of this New Moon with deliberate and persistent energy; getting us to really focus in on our action oriented desires.

Mercury is still “retrograde” meaning that it is surpassing Earth in orbit around the Sun. From our perspective looking at the sky, it seems as though Mercury is moving backwards in our sky. Mercury is relatively close in proximity to Earth which is why we feel this pull between the planets. Maybe some communication issues arise, maybe your electronics funk up. But really what this time is allowing for us is to slow down and visit our dream state, to visualize, and prepare for the coming of the new season. insights:

“What emerges now is tender new growth, the germ of an idea born from dreams and wishes that we tried to push far away into our unconscious minds.

“The challenge is that there is little air in the chart so it may be difficult to rationalize or make sense of what we feel right now.”

LEAH WHITEHORSE from her LUA Astrology

“The only thing known on the surface is that somebody under there is still alive and is even more outrageously navigating the places we all need to remember, now that the time for these things is returning.”


Meditative or Journal Prompts:

  • What’s calling you to change in general?
  • What’s calling you to change in your relationships & partnerships?
  • Are your dreams telling you more about your past that you have a different perspective on now?
  • Speak your dream out loud. If you were a friend listening to your dream, what advice would you give?
  • If it feels mostly emotional and unconscious write down three things you want to keep in mind and keep track of until post retrograde on 3/4/2020.
