On March 2nd, Mercury moves into the dreamy sign of Pisces coloring our perspectives with a lot of imagination, illusion, and a desire to idealize. This is an excellent time to focus on all things creative and choose communication that is gentle and compassionate. Given that emotions are likely to rule the mind, it’s important under the Mercury in Pisces transit that we be aware of allowing our emotions to color our perspectives as well as refusing to see reality for what it is.
A Perspective Touched By The Magical & Mystical

Mercury in Pisces thinks differently leaning towards what is magical and mystical. Over the next three weeks, we may find we are more oriented toward the imaginative and fantastical. This is an excellent time to indulge in creative endeavors as the mind is more oriented towards fluidity and open to emotional and creative processes that go beyond the typical Mercury logical and linear perspectives.
An Intuitive Mind
Generally, Mercury energy is quite linear and logical. However, Mercury in Pisces encourages us to connect to our intuition. All too often, people shirk their inner knowing because it doesn’t come from the logical recesses of their minds. With Mercury in Pisces, we are more likely to allow ourselves to process our intuition without the need to intellectualize it. In fact, we can learn a lot about allowing ourselves to connect both the mental and intuitive faculties instead of being at war with our inner knowing and logic.
A Rose-Colored, Idealistic Lens
For better or worse, Mercury in Pisces also presents a rose-colored, idealistic perspective over the next three weeks. On the bright side, having an uplifting perspective truly helps those of us who are going through a tough time or just trying to keep ourselves generally positive. In fact, it could prevent those who are experiencing heavy situations such as depression from diving too deeply into despair by offering them a bit of hope and rosy-colored lenses to experience life.
On the other side, the idealistic lenses offered by Mercury in Pisces creates a situation where it’s possible to delude ourselves into thinking that something is better than what it really is. From relationships to work environments, the Mercury in Pisces transit creates the potential to avoid red flags in an effort to see people and things in the best light even when maybe there isn’t the best light for them to be seen.
Ruminating On The Spiritual
Whatever sign Mercury is currently transiting provides a perspective on what the mind is focusing on for three weeks of transit. In the case of Mercury in Pisces, the mind is likely to focus greatly on all things spiritual and ethereal. We may find we are more interested in discussing the purpose of life and why our souls chose to incarnate into the earth. Reflections on what comes after death and the general journey of the soul are of interest. Mercury energy rules general communication as well as reading and writing, so we may find that we are more interested in reading about spiritual topics that help us connect more to who we are on a soul level. Conversations with others that focus on spiritual connectivity, spiritual growth, and anything that is creative are likely under the energy of Mercury in Pisces.
Some Mercury in Pisces Precautions
As with any planetary transit, here are some precautions to note with Mercury in Pisces energy.
Due to the nebulous and expansive energy of Pisces, we may find over the next three weeks that our thoughts are ungrounded. At this time, our imaginations are likely to run wild and away from us if we don’t make an effort to control them. The truth of the matter is that we aren’t children who have the option of daydreaming all day. So, to counter the Mercury in Pisces’ tendency to have a wandering mind, it’s best to make space to honor this energy. This means that if we spend most of the day attending to responsibilities then perhaps we can take time out to allow ourselves to allow the mind to wander. In doing this, there is less of a tendency to fight against the more nebulous nature of Mercury in Pisces.
Miscommunication Is Likely
Similarly, Mercury in Pisces can create situations where there are miscommunications. This is likely because Pisces energy doesn’t really operate with logic. Messages and communication could be misinterpreted. For example, we could send a message and it could be viewed differently than what is desired. So, over the next three weeks, it is important to take our time when communicating as the words are not always what they appear to be. If we are unsure of what someone is saying, it is our responsibility to make sure that we obtain the clarity needed.
The Emotions Ruling The Mind
As an emotional water sign, Mercury in Pisces creates a situation where we are likely to allow our emotions to rule our minds. In some cases, this can help us to be more empathetic and compassionate when speaking and considering different perspectives. However, it can also create a situation where we are likely to allow our emotions to influence what we think which is not always advantageous. Thus, it is important to consider how the Mercury in Pisces transit could have make us a bit more emotional where our heart rule over our minds.
Last, but not least, Mercury in Pisces definitely rules delusional thinking. If there was ever a time when we are more oriented towards believing in the impossible, it’s definitely while Mercury is moving through Pisces. Unfortunately, it can be really hard to ground the mind when Mercury is in Pisces because there is a tendency to focus on his idealism as opposed to reality. One of the best ways to combat this is to always seek guidance or simply have someone around that can keep us in check and associated with reality so that idealistic thinking doesn’t get ahead of us.
Overall, the three-week transit of Mercury in Pisces offers us the opportunity to take on a more compassionate and empathetic perspective when dealing with ourselves and others. The creative realm will be especially attractive and this is a time when we are more likely to idealize our circumstances and people for better or worse. We are encouraged to use this transit as a time to reflect on spiritual endeavors and to avoid falling into the trap of wearing rose-colored glasses to avoid red flags and thinking from a place of delusion.
