Mercury in Pisces Thinkers
Types of Thinkers
How does a person with Mercury in Pisces communicate with others? Well, these are the poets and the painters, the lovers and the dreamers, the writers and the singers. They are the philanthropists who will give someone else their own coat if they think that person is colder than they are. But abstract thought is not all about flowers and sunsets. Albert Einstein dreamed up that theory of relativity too. This shows that practical actions can also come from a person who thinks in abstract terms, giving us a more complete picture of the way a Mercury in Pisces communicates.
These are people with vivid imaginations who can visualize their thoughts. They are telepathic on an unconscious level. Because Mercury in Pisces communications are so much in the psychic realm, they must be careful they are not too influenced by the thoughts of those who surround them. They will pick up on other people’s moods in a matter of minutes, even if they are just sitting on a bus next to an irritated or upset person. They arrive at their conclusions mostly by their intuitions, not by logical reasoning, and it works just fine.
Mercury in Pisces people learn by osmosis anyway, so disciplined study is not really their thing. They learn by intuitive perceptions, and watching people and situations. This teaches them more than they will ever learn from a book, though reading as an escape once in a while is an activity which will appeal to them. Their psychic abilities may make it seem like they have a peculiar way of thinking, because they just “know” things. This writer grew up with two Pisces people in the family, and gratefully accepts that they sense things and know if something is wrong without being told.
Since Pisces is a mutable or changeable sign, what kind of house would they like to live in? This writer thinks a houseboat would be the perfect thing! Cancer is the first water sign, but the cardinal and leadership one, and water that changes really often would represent them, such as the ocean, with its waves and tides. Scorpio is the fixed water sign, and so a frozen lake or iceberg in the sea would represent them. But the body of water that represents a Mercury in Pisces person is a slowly meandering river that has a lot of changing scenes along the shore.
They have Empathy
These are people whose minds can be easily biased by unconscious emotional patterns, based on their past experiences. Now, this happens to most of us at some time or other. But Pisces Mercury people must be careful they do not get so trapped by their negative memories that it makes them neurotic. It can be that way if they take it to extremes, or have difficult or strong planetary aspects to their Mercury.
But the norm is to find a sensitive and imaginative person, with a lot of artistic ability, who is sympathetic and really understands what it is like to be in another person’s shoes. Unscrupulous people can play on their empathetic natures, so if you have a friend or loved one with this Mercury position, try to watch out for that. They have fluctuating emotions which can cause a lot of vacillation in decision making and communication. Daydreaming is a big tendency, but then to think up such creative ideas, one has to do a lot of daydreaming!
Mercury in Pisces communicators are great story tellers. They notice all the details and soak up all the feelings of whatever situation they are in, so are great at expressing themselves. They can be the life of the party, but are actually private people, who require time alone pretty often. This is not because they are angry or upset, privacy is just a big need of theirs. They are often secretive about themselves until they are sure they trust someone, and will keep their private thoughts to themselves. This will cause them to seem shy, but they really are not, it is just a Mercury position which requires seclusion once in a while. So don't be surprised if your Mercury in Pisces person disappears for a few days. They need to clear their heads. Then when their need for quiet is over, they will go someplace else, pick up all their friends, and home turns into a party until the next mood change.
Sometimes Mercury in Pisces people have a bit of a persecution complex. They tend to be a tad oversensitive, and may think somebody criticized them when that was not the person’s intention. They need to try to be more impersonal in their thinking and in their perception of reality, something that is easier to say than to do.
These people are like walking encyclopedias, they pick up little facts and interesting tidbits of knowledge no matter what they are doing. They are quick studies who can easily adapt to any kind of situation, even one they just walked into, and “know” the exact requirements of the moment. How do they do that? You can try to get them to explain it, but unless you have psychic abilities yourself, it will not be easy to understand. They are natural mediums too. Of course, we all have psychic ability, it’s just that all of us do not try to develop it.
A few years ago this reader was in a metaphysical store with a friend; we were taking a course together. A psychic was walking around the store, just introducing herself, and telling us things that she never could have known about people she never met. She had both of us crying—me about a message from my father who died when I was in my 20’s—she knew I had a son whose middle name was my father’s first name, among other things, and what the name was. The second message was from my friend’s husband who had died a few years prior to that night. He wanted to tell her it was OK with him if she started to date again, he was afraid she was getting lonely! I asked the psychic her sign, and of course it was Pisces, though most water signs have these abilities. Even if your Sun is in Aquarius or Aries, Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun, so people of those Sun signs have a good chance of having Mercury in Pisces.
A Pisces Dream Home
Mercury in Pisces minds can absorb a lot of information, which comes in really handy for memorizing things before tests in college and such. They get bored really easily, so love to travel, that’s why a houseboat would be such an appealing way for them to live. Being near the water is very soothing for water signs anyway. These people are great judges of human nature, they know who can be trusted and who can’t just by being near them. They are very diplomatic and goodnatured most of the time, except for those days when they need their private time. Versatile, ingenious, dexterous, Mercury in Pisces have many positive qualities.
Their kind hearts lead them to wanting to help those less fortunate, so they often work in hospitals, jails, hospices, schools for people with special needs, as death doulas, or at regular hospitals. They have healing qualities in their natures. Plus working in a large institution seems to quell some of that need to be secluded sometimes, as one worker does not stand out so much in a large building. Last year this writer worked on a series of people from each astrology sign, and discovered that Pisces people were the ones who gave the most time and money to charity. When a Mercury in Pisces communicator is trying to get a point across, it is often about someone other than themselves. How can you not love such kindhearted old souls? They truly deserve to float down that lazy river, dreaming up new ways to help people and show them a good time.

Questions & Answers
I have a sun in Pisces, moon in Scorpio, and rising sign in Scorpio. Mercury Pisces. I have a lot of psychic energy but can't tell if I'm psychic or using imagination. What should I do?
Being psychic and having a vivid imagination sort of go hand in hand. The Scorpio Moon and Rising probably do mean you have psychic ability, but it has to be developed. Scorpio planets make it easy for you to "read" other people, so you should be a good judge of character and have good instincts you can trust. The rising Scorpio means you intimidate others a bit, you come off as reserved and it's hard for others to read you. They can't tell if it's the worst day of your life or the best day of it.
The Sun in Pisces means you are creative or musical, maybe a good writer, musician, or poet. Mercury rules the way you think, and you think with your heart, not your head. But the Scorpio in you won't allow you to be taken advantage of.
Meditation is the best way to help along psychic energies or working with crystals. If you are psychic, you just know what's going to happen before it does. Or you just connect with certain people. You are going out and decide to buy something to bring, and it's something the host was just thinking of getting. Using imagination is when you are doing something creative.

I have Pisces in sun, moon, Venus, Mercury, Mars in Sagittarius, is there any hope for me?
There is always hope. Pisces Sun people are sensitive, psychic, creative, but like all kinds of people and don't judge them. Having the Moon there means you are emotionally spiritual, romantic, caring and nurturing. You care deeply when you love and are very forgiving. You are changeable too. Venus in Pisces means you are fun socially, a good storyteller, kind to friends. Be careful not to let them take advantage of you. Mercury rules the way you think, so your thoughts are ruled by your emotions. As long as you are aware of that, that's OK. The Mars rules what you like to do physically, so in Sag, it makes you stronger and more outdoorsy. If we had a whole chart, we could see if the Mars squares the Pisces planets tightly, that would cause challenges depending on what houses these planets are in. But there are still five more, and they are in other signs. It's not unusual to have 3 or 4 planets in a zodiac sign, often the Sun sign. It's nothing to worry about. Take care.Helpful 1
I have Mercury and Sun in Pisces, Moon in Cancer, and a Leo rising. I’ve been having reoccurring dreams which are very aligned with my real life. What are your thoughts?
I think you are a bit clairvoyant or clairsentient since you have dreams which align with what is happening in your life. This would be because of the Pisces Sun, which is very psychic. Also, Mercury rules how you think, and having it in Pisces, it means your thoughts are colored by your emotions. The Moon in Cancer is also sensitive for reading other people and sort of "knowing" what will happen. I think you should always trust your feelings. If you want to develop your psychic ability better, meditation is a great way to get started. I wrote about my own experiences in an article that may help you: https://hubpages.com/paranormal/How-To-Develop-Int...Helpful 1
I have a mercury in Pisces, Sun in Aries, moon in Taurus and ascendant in Capricorn. Sometimes I dream of the future. How do I enhance my psychic abilities??
The best way to improve your intuitive and psychic abilities is to begin meditation. I know it sounds odd, but when you learn to quiet your mind and stop all the chatter, you train your mind. Sit quietly for about 20 minutes a day, and do your best to clear your mind. Stay with it. In a few weeks, unimportant thoughts won't distract you as much, and that's when your mind is clear enough to start seeing visions and colors. Work your way up to twice a day. Eventually, you may see other lives or scenes that have meaning for you.
There are many types of meditation, so you can research that and decide what you like. Beginners sometimes like to listen to guided meditations, where someone else talks and leads you through. There is an app for your cell phone called Buddhify which has short, guided meditations. I am writing an article about how to develop intuition and clairvoyance, so hope to be able to post that soon.Helpful 14
I have a Pisces Sun, Capricorn moon and Scorpio rising. Mercury in Pisces and Aries Venus how do I work with my abilities?
The Pisces Sun means you don't judge other people and make a great effort to understand them. So you can work well with those from all walks of life. You are also very creative, so could be a good writer, artist, musician, or have another talent. Pisces people bore easily and you will probably change jobs several times during your life. The Capricorn Moon means you are serious and security-minded and have a good head for business. You can be a good leader. Stability is important to you. Capricorns are sort of quiet, so people may tend to underestimate you at work, and all of a sudden you are the one with all the good ideas leading all the best projects. I think you want to be half of a partnership in life, Pisces loves being in love, and Capricorn wants the security, or possibly the money or position a certain person can offer in a relationship.
Scorpio Rising people (I am one myself) seem reserved and quiet until you get to know them. They are independent, strong-willed, can endure trials most mortals can't, and are very loyal friends. You can read other people really well, being both Pisces and Scorpio. This is also good for leadership, and people find you intimidating, until they know you better. It's good to have emotional strength and depth. Mercury rules how you think, so it's with your heart. But again, this is good for your creativity. Venus in Aries is about social and love life, so you would be more demonstrative in love, and tend to put your loved one on a pedestal. You also would be very creative about showing how you love someone, and have good ideas about what to do when your friends are all complaining they are bored.Helpful 9
