Note: Just a reminder for those who like to pay attention to the forces at play in the Universe and did not read yesterday’s Oracle, please note that Mercury has gone retrograde starting at midnight last night. Madeline Gerwick, our business astrologer (www.polarisbusinessguides.com) gives us a head’s up on this coming timeframe. She says:
Are you ready? Is your computer system fully backed up? Is your car fixed or in good shape? Have you noticed that things are slowing down a bit? Mercury retrograde begins this Saturday. This period is designed to give us time to catch up. We could do that too, if only we would stop trying to start something new during this period, which will last through March 17th.
These periods are also designed to help us learn something new. This occurs naturally when we discover our mistakes and correct them, which is a prevalent situation during Mercury retrograde. If only our culture had a better appreciation for the value of mistakes, we would have a much better experience with these periods. In general though, mistakes are considered a sign of incompetence and something that shouldn't occur. Yet we wouldn't learn nearly as much without them! Mistakes are a sign that we're treading into new territory and learning naturally comes with that situation. It 's part of the natural creative process, and when we reframe mistakes as part of the creative learning process, we gain their true benefits.
Another way we learn during these periods is by taking workshops, classes, seminars, etc. Have you been hankering to learn something new? Perhaps a class you missed taking previously is now being re-offered? Or perhaps you'll have a chance to retake a program? This Mercury retrograde will give us another chance to take advantage of a cycle associated with planning and logistics. It's also a great time to replan a new project.
Ideally you will schedule 50/% less than normal, so you have time to catch up and learn something new. Take advantage of this cycle and you will have a much better experience of them.

Mercury retrograde in Pisces becomes an important retrograde, setting the pace for 2013, which has three retrogrades, all in water signs. Water signs rule the hidden elements within your life, the feelings, the intuitive connection with the Divine and your life purpose. This first Mercury retrograde has a phenomenal amount of aspects that will be happening all through this Mercury retrograde phase, with Chiron connection in Pisces being the most dynamic. Chiron represents our forced savings account as our response to unfair situations and the Divine qualities we build and grow as our response to these situations. The Mercury retrograde graphs illustrate the key dates that will bring dynamic events into your life that will have a powerful impact in the changes geared to occur during this time.

Oppression – The energies and directions are now evolving around a follow on to the great amount of mental activity we have been experiencing lately. This Oracle is a reminder that if you are feeling limited and oppressed that you, yep you, really are the one oppressing your Self, whether you were taught that or you just accepted that as your “lot in life.” Knowing that you can move into liberating your potentials is today’s message…Read on…
This reminder is to a signpost to point you in the direction of understanding that you cannot know freedom without knowing oppression, so that is a good, positive thing. Becoming conscious of how you oppress your self is a valuable step in your personal growth and knowing that every form of oppression is an opportunity for freedom gives you the necessary stepping stones to freedom…and the opportunity here is to liberate yourself as you awaken to the ways in which you oppress yourself.
It, oppression, is generally self created and you are responsible for the boundaries and limitations you place around your life and what is happening. These boundaries and limitations are generally created by your lack of self-understanding, your lack of self-awareness. So open yourself to new and wondrous ideas about the way it is!
The main message of today’s Oracle is to open yourself to unlocking your talents. Letting it be okay to let them out into the world, to let them fly. Free yourself from the limitations you place on your Self and your way of being and know that all things are possible!
Let your mantra for today be: I see myself in a new light, I know my spirit is limitless and free and I AM opening more and more to this limitless me...And So It Is!!!
