Mercury enters Pisces on March 5th, saying goodbye to Aquarius with a square to Mars at 29 degrees Scorpio (discussed in last week's horoscopes). Mercury in Pisces will continue to square Mars as he moves into Sagittarius. This ongoing argument will emphasize the last degree of Aquarius (29) and first degrees Pisces (0-1). It will hi-light the shift from stubbornly rebellious/contradictory ideas (Aquarius) to a more fluid (Pisces) style of communicating.
If you have anything at 29 degrees of the Fixed signs, or 0 to 1 degrees of the Mutable signs, pay attention.
Mercury in Pisces releases logic. What mattered in Aquarius will cease to be of importance. Focus will expand and become fuzzy around the edges. Words will have subliminal layers. Mercury in Pisces promises everything and nothing. This is the transit of religious visions and drunken ramblings. Is that your Higher Power whispering in your ear, or your paranoid fantasies? You can never be sure with Mercury in Pisces, but that uncertainty can open up fantastic possibilities (or not).
The fact that Mercury will still be challenged by Mars means the tension on this day won't end immediately, but it will shift into other areas, and gradually fade. It's significant that the square won't be exact once Mercury and Mars move from Fixed to Mutable signs. Increased flexibility (in thoughts and actions) will dissolve the urgency of the conflict. Or, it may move to a totally different level. Like watercolour paints, the issue will bleed over the lines, or become diluted.
Mercury rules the North Node in Virgo, but the South Node is in Pisces. In order to develop what's ripe (North Node) you'll need to expand on (Pisces) existing information (Mercury). The path from South to North Node is continuous. You're developing South Node issues, or taking them to their logical conclusions.
