Mercury Retrograde – March 2019

Mercury changes direction on 5 March and travels retrograde until 29 March 2019 before turning direct again. What will make this retrograde period more challenging is that Mercury finds itself in Pisces – the sign of its detriment and fall. Mercury is not comfortable in Pisces. Mercury concerns itself with details. In Pisces which is Jupiter ruled, the focus is the big picture and the search for the truth. It is a time where we are going to need to go over things and re-look small details and sift through the bits and pieces of information in search of the truth. Jupiter is in Sagittarius the sign of its rulership and is particularly strong at the moment. The search for the truth is very powerful at this time. The trickster (Mercury) will be desperate to continue telling stories and half-truths. There will be intense pressure for the truth to come out. But deception is all over Mercury and those peddling lies will continue to fabricate stories and half-truths. This is powerful when Neptune will connect with Mercury on 24 March and 2 April. Neptune will add to the confusion. Be aware of lies and being deceived. Seems appropriate that South Africa is dealing with matters of corruption and state capture through the various commissions of enquiry. Let’s hope the truth comes out.
Make sure you back up phones and computers. Hold off making travel plans. Make sure you have all the information you need to make informed decisions. Things may change or you may become aware of things that may influence your travel plans. Use this time for research and information. Don’t get mad if people don’t get back to you – they may not have received your email. You may very well have to start the conversation again.
Be mindful about any business dealings. Are you being deceived? Is the deal too good to be true? If so, it probably is.
