Astrology at a Glance
What does it do & why is it important?
Astrology at a Glance is a Premium Members feature that examines the transits of the personal planets -- Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars -- as they pass through each successive sign during the year.
As the aspects form, it gives a bare-bones summary of each energy combination -- and what it means to accomplish. It shows you the totality of a planet's development and the work it does in its transit through its current sign.
Astrology at a Glance gives a short, concise look at how one thing leads to another as the planet's aspects unfold, and how these meetings eventually conclude with changed conditions ... preparing you and the Inner Self that planet represents for the next step in your evolutionary journey.
The summary below describes the work of Mercury in Pisces for 2017
Mer -- Just the Facts
The Intellectual Self -- mobility, information gathering, data handling, communication
Your Mercury energy wants your mind ... and the work you do with it ... to be fun, educating and useful -- for you and those you meet and work for. It also wants to help you turn what you know into something useful.
Positively ---> curious, versatile, discriminating, analytical, logical
Negatively ---> scattered, nervous, high-strung, critical, complaining
Pis -- Just the Facts
Pis ---> intuitive / creative / compassionate / caring / selfless / spiritual / tolerant / private / inspirational
Negatively ---> neurotic / depressed / obsessive / impractical / gullible / not in touch with reality / helpless / paranoid
Like Venus, your Mercury energy describes two inner selves. One manages your mind and all its talents; the other is in charge of the work you do ... the ways you use your skills and abilities to help others and build the kind of life you want for yourself. Again, as with Venus, these are usually reduced to the basic categories of "mind" and "work," but these also include whole subdivisions of behavior and talents.
Mercury, too, aims to keep these two significant life areas working comfortably ... with each other and with your inner selves who have other interests. (Again, there are 10 major ones who comprise your psycho-spiritual Inner Family.)
Your Mercury energy wants your mind ... and the work you do with it ... to be fun, informative and useful -- for you and those you meet and work for. Sometimes Life cooperates in this; sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes your different Inner Selves cooperate in this; sometimes they don't. You -- and your Mercury energy -- will act one way when things are going well. You will both become "a completely different person" when they aren't.
