Pisces in Mercury thinkers are creative.

Pisces in Mercury thinkers are creative.

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.

Vivid Imaginations

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.

Find Your Mercury Sign!

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.

Highly Psychic

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.

Pisces loves life on the water.

Questions & Answers

Question: I am a Pisces sun, Scorpio moon, Gemini rising. My mercury is also in Pisces. What are your thoughts? Sometimes I feel my dreams tell me so much and I feel things so deeply. It's a blessing and a curse.

Answer: I can understand that. Pisces Sun people are dreamy and intuitive, and feeling such intense emotions can be hard! Mercury rules the way you think, so in Pisces, it would make your dreams very vivid and colorful, also a bit psychic. I think you can read others very well, especially with the Scorpio Moon. Both Pisces and Scorpio are water signs, making you very emotional, but Scorpio is stronger. The Pisces in you can lead to letting others take advantage of you for being so kind-hearted. The Gemini Rising is the way others see you, so that's a bit more light and humorous, you don't seem as intense as you are. Both Gemini and Pisces are good communication signs, so you get along well with others and are a good storyteller, a restless person who craves a lot of life experiences. I can see where this is both blessing and curse. The Scorpio Moon can help ground you. The Gemini will help you move on from getting too serious at times, just out of boredom. So that could be your saving grace.

Question: I have a Pisces Sun, Capricorn moon and Scorpio rising. Mercury in Pisces and Aries Venus how do I work with my abilities?

Answer: 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.

Question: 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??

Answer: 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.

Question: I have both Mercury and Mars in Pisces. What are your thoughts?

Answer: Mercury rules the way you think. Since Pisces is a water sign, your decisions are colored more by your emotions than rational thought. This doesn't have to be bad though, as Pisces is a very intuitive sign. So you can read others very well and always should trust your first impressions and intuition - it won't fail you. You may have psychic ability too and experience unusual visions or have really vivid dreams.

Mars in Pisces means your strong emotions come from your unconscious mind. You are extremely emotional and need to be sure that you don't let this eat away at your self-confidence. You need periods of solitude to regain your energy; this is not a high energy Mars. But you work well behind the scenes and are very sensitive towards others.

All of your other planets are in zodiac signs too, so it's likely you have one or two in Earth signs or signs that help to ground you more. Meditation would be very good for you. You would also enjoy the studies of metaphysical topics like astrology, tarot, meditation, reiki healing and the like.

Question: I have Sun, Mercury, and Lilith in Pisces all in third house (Virgo moon, Caprising, Pluto Scorpio) I have anxiety and PTSD. How can I develop my self and be confident at most of the times?

Answer: The third house rules communications in areas we visit each day, or with coworkers, neighbors, and siblings. Pisces is a gentle, sensitive sign, and since your Mercury is there, it makes it hard for you to assert yourself. Plus the Pisces sun means you see others from a place of understanding and spirituality, so you don't want to hurt anyone.

But you have strong intuition and can read other people well, so I'd like to see you develop that more. Meditation can help that and also calm you. It's a little hard at first to block your thoughts, but as you learn to do it better, it clears the clutter from your mind. There is even an app for your phone called Buddhify, it's cheap, and can help you with short, guided meditations to get you started. I use it when I'm short on time.

Pluto is strong in Scorpio, so that should help with your confidence. You are capable and have courage; you just need to learn to speak your truth more easily. Also, Virgo Moon people are practical, and most people depend on their advice, so you have planets in signs that can overcome that Pisces shyness, and most Pisces people are good storytellers and read others like books. The Mercury means your thoughts are ruled by your emotions, so that can be the issue. But I think you are just getting in your own way.,

I am unsure about the PTSD; you may have a difficult aspect to your Virgo Moon. The Pisces planets may oppose it depending on the degrees the planets are in. Take vitamins and eat well in the days which lead up to your menstrual cycle, meditate, and try to exercise. If you have continued issues, see your gynecologist.

Question: I have Sun, Moon and Mercury in Pisces. I find this combination hinders my communication with others and amplifies my emotions to ridiculous absurdity. Also, I have Venus and Mars in Aries. Any suggestions?

Answer: You are psychic and read others so well, you can tell what they are thinking anyway, so I guess that would be a problem for communication! Your Venus in Aries is helpful here. Venus rules our social and love lives, so you are outgoing, at least when certain planets are transiting that Venus. Just be careful not to blurt something out, a common Aries fault. Venus will be going into Aries on April 18th this year, and it stays for about a month. See if it's easier for you to communicate then. Most Venus in Aries people are fun and have original ideas, are the leaders of their social groups. Also, Mars is the physical part of your life. Aries is an assertive sign. Try to push yourself past the Pisces sensitivity, and use your Venus and Mars energies more. I have an article on what the planets in your birth chart mean, this may help a bit: Even though you can read people well, it doesn't have to be a disadvantage. You can tell who is more receptive to you. Talk to them.

Question: I have both Sun and Mercury in Pisces in the 1st house. Libra moon and Pluto in 8th house. How can I develop my psychic abilities?

Answer: This is the most common question I receive and I am currently working on an article to address it. The best thing you can do is meditate, or join a meditation group. When you learn to clear your mind of all the clutter we think of each day, it makes room for your telepathic abilities to come out.

Better yet, if you can find a metaphysical bookstore in your area, there will be clairvoyants and shamans, people who teach you how to clear your chakras, and other healing modalities. When we work with a group of people who have developed THEIR abilities or have natural psychic talents, their vibrations are higher. Just being with them will help you raise yours. Vibrations are higher when you feel good, safe, and happy.

I am clairsentient and can "feel" things. Also, if you can recall your dreams you can get clues there about the path your higher self wants you to take.

Having the Sun and Mercury in Pisces is a big help. You most likely have telepathic links to those you love and can sense when something is wrong (or right). Pluto in the 8th house of sex and death means you may have visions of people close to you and "see" yourself at their funerals. I have a full 8th house and it took me time to learn that I would have the vision, but couldn't see myself to know my age at the time of loss. I finally realized it was about 2 years.

Try to seek out a group of like-minded people with these interests. But meditation or even getting a CD of guided meditations will help prepare your mind. Even learning to read tarot can help, that's how I began to see things. Good luck and I hope you do well. Read my article on Kundalini Energy and Chakras on There is also an app you can get on your phone called Buddhify which has short, guided meditations to get you started. It was either free or around $3.00 when I got it.

Question: I have Pisces in sun, moon, Venus, Mercury, Mars in Sagittarius, is there any hope for me?

Answer: 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.

Question: I have Pisces both for Mercury and Sun, Taurus Moon and Capricorn Ascendant. How can I develop more logical and rational thought and compartmentalize my emotions?

Answer: It's Mercury in Pisces which is causing what you wrote about here. Mercury rules the mind and thought processes. Since Pisces is an emotional and psychic sign, you think with your heart and not your head. But the good part is that since the Sun is also in Pisces, you have a great imagination and artistic ability.

There is hope for logical and rational thought here, because of that good old Taurus Moon and Capricorn Ascendant, as they are both earth signs. That's just what a Mercury in Pisces dreamer needs! The Capricorn Ascendant is the way others see you. You come off as sensible and responsible. I bet people stop YOU to ask questions when you are out, because you always look like you know what you're doing, or are the leader of the group. So that's a good trait to have. Also, Taurus Moon rules your emotional makeup. The Taurus vibe is very down to earth, sensual, and likes security. So this Moon will stop you from getting too flighty in love and other matters that are dear to your heart. Don't fret, there's enough balance here for you!

Question: I have a mercury in Pisces, Sun in Pisces, moon in Libra and accident in Gemini. How do I enhance my psychic abilities?

Answer: Meditation is usually the best way. I have an article about it.

Question: I have Pisces sun, moon, mercury all in the tenth house. I have venus in Aries, mars in Taurus both in 11th house. I am definitely in touch with my psychic abilities, however, I find it hard to use it to make a difference, help people, or work professionally with it. I feel a complete lack of energy and drive to do so, despite how much I care. Any advice?

Answer: It seems to be a conflict, if you have the desire, but not the energy. Mars is Taurus is a little bit lazy, but can be overcome to work hard if you really care as much as you say you do. Venus in Aries is socially outgoing, and to want to use your abilities to help others, this Venus position will help you. Since the Pisces planets are in the 10th house, it is the career house, so you could do well and get attention and work doing it. It is hard to find work in metaphysical subjects. You usually have to work out of a bookstore or metaphysical group who has a building. That's why I cast charts and do readings from home, online. These are not readings, just questions which are about articles I wrote. People who ask here don't realize they are writing into a writer's site, and many of us wrote these articles many years ago. You need to find people who speak your language and take a class or study group, and that may help motivate you.

Question: I have Mercury in Pisces. Pisces (MC) and Mercury in my 10th house. Mercury is in conjunction with MC. I’m trying to find a career that fits me but verbal communication is an embarrassing weakness of mines. Q: What is the best way for me to communicate and how can I find career that caters to that? My sun is in Pisces and the 9th house. My 3rd house is in Leo.

Answer: Mercury is the communication planet, but verbal communication isn't your thing? Mercury rules the way you think. I think you are very creative with this planet here, have you ever tried writing? Or blogging? Since it's in the 10th house of career and close to the Midheaven, it is an important factor in your career. You can communicate behind the scenes, write scripts, be a proofreader of other people's work, or write an advice column. The 9th house rules law, philosophy, travel, education. Does law interest you? There are areas of law which require research, although Pisces is so creative for that. The 3rd house also rules communication, not so publicly, but more in a neighborhood or family setting. And Leo is a more confident communicator. Both Pisces and Leo like people. Working in a business where you can do a job where you interact with others a lot but don't have to get up on a stage and perform for them would suit you. You should like to travel. You could travel and write about your experiences. Or write about your local businesses or what's happening in your town. Be a journalist. Or you can work speaking on the phone. You need to express yourself, but need to find a way to do it in a job behind the scenes then. In any job, most people aren't the "front" people. I hope that helps, and as years go on you can work on building confidence. Use that creative side!

Question: 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?

Answer: 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:

Question: My six year old son has Mercury in Pisces (Aries Sun, Venus, Mars; Virgo Moon and Cancer rising). He seems to be reluctant to say hi or bye to people or generally express how he feels. How can I help him to feel comfortable communicating his feelings?

Answer: The Mercury rules how he thinks, and his thoughts are ruled by his feelings. I think with the Pisces in him and Cancer Rising, he's just a bit shy. Six years old is young for me to be thinking too astrologically about a person. We all need some time to grow into ourselves. He has an Aries Sun, that will take over. He needs time. Also, Virgo Moons are chatty. I don't usually do astrology work on anyone under 16, or 18 if they didn't grow up in a metaphysical household. Don't worry so much, he's little.

Question: I have an Aries Sun & Venus, Pisces Moon & Mercury, and a Taurus rising. I tend to want to be so social, but end up backing out and getting nervous. It feels like I’ll be so hyped to confront someone, but then when it happens I want to hide, any advice?

Answer: Hello,

I think the nervous part of you is because of the Pisces Moon and Mercury. Pisces is a very gentle sign, and having the Moon there means it rules your emotions. So even though an Aries Sun person is outgoing, and an Aries Venus loves to socialize, there is a private part of you that comes out at times. It could be with certain groups of people who make you feel uncomfortable. Taurus Rising is the way others see you, and Taurus is also quiet, what you see is what you get. So at a social gathering, if you don't feel like you have something important to add, you will decide to stay quiet. Mercury is the way you think, so in Pisces, your thoughts are ruled by your emotions. This does not have to be a bad thing, you are very creative and artistic, and most Pisces influences help people understand others and to be able to relate to them. I think maybe you are hanging around with the wrong people. I can understand the Pisces nerves, but most Pisces are good story tellers and do relate well to others. The crowd that makes you nervous may be too high strung or too hyper, it's not that YOU are. I think you need to find people you feel more happy around who share your values better. What you told me here doesn't show me that you are unsociable at all. I truly believe it's the company you keep. Try meeting some new people, and I think you will shine! I wish you all the best! Jean

Question: I have Sun, Moon, Venus and Mercury in Pisces. My work colleagues say that i am the most intuitive person they know. I often turn up to work in outfits that match someone I am feeling empathy for. I am not aware of any particular ability but just seem to know things about the needs of the people around me. Is there a way to harness this ability for the benefit of others, without being so random?

Answer: Yes. Meditation usually helps, you obviously have psychic ability. I wrote an article about how my abilities came about which may help you better than I can explain here: Also, is there a metaphysical book store in your area? Usually, they have classes on this very thing, helping to teach you to use these talents. It sounds to me like you are very gifted. There are also many books on how to develop psychic powers. Stay with it, that's a lot of planets in Pisces.

Question: I am a Cancer rising, Aries Sun, Scorpio Moon, Pisces Mercury, Aries Venus and have really noticed how Intune I have become, as well as being able to feel as I listen to people. How can I tap in deeper and really cultivate my psychic abilities?

Answer: Usually, the first step is meditation. It brings you in line with your inner self, and more able to listen and hear things about others. You could also take a class on meditation, or work with a credible psychic. If you have these abilities, you have to learn how to work with them, and the more you use them, the easier and more accurate it gets. Working with a class of people trying to do the same thing is the best way because the energy of all of you working together is stronger. I am clairsentient, and working in a meditation/psychic group, I got a lot stronger. I wrote a little bit about my experiences: Try to read books, like Edgar Cayce.

Question: 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?

Answer: 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 am clairsentient, maybe this article will help you: Best Wishes.

Question: I have a Sun in Aquarius, Moon in Pisces, Mercury in Pisces, and Venus in Pisces. I feel way too much. How do I stop this sometimes, because it can be suffocating?

Answer: That is a lot of emotion. The Moon in Pisces rules your emotions, and with the Venus there too, it rules your love and social life too. The Sun in Aquarius can help a little, as it's more mental energy. The best way to handle all this emotion is to pour it into some kind of creative projects or pursuits. Do you play a musical instrument, like to write, paint, or have any other creative talents? Also, since you feel deeply for others, you could do some volunteer work for the needy. It could be anything which interests you. The Mercury in Pisces also means you think with your heart, so you need to pour some of that feeling into something meaningful.

In the meantime, don't take on other people's burdens too much. Try to be careful as you enter romantic relationships. Don't go too fast, or you can get in too deep before you realize it. You likely have other planets in zodiac signs, maybe Earth ones, that can balance it out a little. But don't wear your heart on your sleeve so much or let others take your kindness for granted. I hope that helps. Jean

Hello Jean,

I'm an aries sun, cancer moon and gemini rising, my mercury in Pisces. I also have a lot of Aquarius influence. Everything feels a bit messy and out of place. I've been kinda dealing with it for a while and learned to accept my odd traits. But how do I make everything work together?

Rika on March 29, 2020:

Hello Jean :) I have a Pisces Sun, Sagitarius moon and libra rising. Mercury in Pisces and Aquarius Venus how do I work with my abilities?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 10, 2020:

I'm sorry, this is too much information for a forum answer. I would have to draw out a whole astrology chart, and then you are bringing numerology into it. I never heard of a "soul urge" number.

Selasi on March 05, 2020:

I am SELASI, I have my sun in Aries, moon in Aries,Rising in Taurus, mercury in Pisces, venus in Pisces, venus in Pisces, Mars in pisces and Jupiter in Virgo. Been going thru a lot and I would like a little help. Had my awakening last year and I discovered my life path is 2, my expression is 8 and soul urge is 9. Can you tell me more about what am to do to get out of the bad way I feel because people just Hurt me, take me for granted and then leave me.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 03, 2020:

Hello Oliver,

OMG, you sure are a communicator! I am jazzed to know you are a radio host, and I bet a really great one! Sag, Virgo, and Pisces are all what we call mutable zodiac signs, and they are all talkative. So you really need that outlet for all those thoughts and ideas.

Since you have an Aries Sun, that's a leadership sign. The issue I see is that you start a lot of things, but with the mutable signs and being a Sun Aries, you may not finish them? Right? I think you should keep doing all these things you enjoy, because all the mental and physical energy needs to go somewhere. Eventually you will stay with the ones that are more important for you, and drop the other interests.

If you have your birth time, try going on, and it will let you get a full astrology chart for free if you plug in the info they ask for. You need to look for fixed signs in your chart, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio. That's what will give you the power to finish what you start. Best wishes. Jean

Oliver on December 28, 2019:

Hi Jean.

I’m an Aries Sun, Sagittarius Moon, Virgo Rising and Pisces Mercury.

I have so many ideas in my mind i’m working in communication (radio host) and i always have something up , one day is traveling, the other is doing martial arts, writing a book... How can i deal with this ? Thank you

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 10, 2019:

Hi Jermaine,

It sounds to me like you have it right. Mercury in Pisces does mean you think with your heart instead of your head. But the 3rd house rules communication, so that's why you are so good at it. Your interpretation is spot on! Best Wishes.

I am not familiar with Indian Astrology.

The Pisces in Mercury means you think with your heart, not your head, so that can mean you are easily influenced by others. Aries people are also distracted, or have ideas and don't finish the projects. But the Mars in Scorpio means you should finish what is meaningful to you, and Virgo rising is a hard worker. Also, Scorpio and Aquarius are fixed signs. Maybe you just haven't hit on that thing you want to do yet.

Nancy on May 27, 2019:

Hello Jean, I'm an Aries sun, Aquarius moon, Virgo rising, Scorpio mars in retrograde and Pisces in mercury. I love to do so many things at once, but I can never truly decide on what I want to do because I am easily influenced by my environment and others emotions. How do I fix this?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 25, 2019:

The 12th house is the natural house for Pisces. It means you are secretive and like to spend time alone. You could work in a large institution, such as a jail or hospital. You are very emotional and have psychic ability. If you go back to cafeastrology and actually read, it will tell you what it means for every planet in a zodiac sign and every house. Please don't ask questions that have been answered if you would only read yourself.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 07, 2019:

I don't think it's a bad placement. It's not a real sensible kind of thinker, but has good points. Your thoughts are ruled by what you feel, and that makes you good natured and compassionate. I think you also would be artistic and creative. It's an unconventional way of thinking, making you a nonconformist. I like it.

Not a good placement for Mercury. A poster in another thread commented that a trine to Uranus helped him.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on April 21, 2019:

Yes, having so many planets in Pisces means you are a natural when it comes to metaphysical subjects. You can read others very well and are spiritual and patient, so will be helpful to them. I think an Angel course is a great idea, as Pisces is the last sign, the most spiritual, closest to God. You are an old soul. Go for it!

Rina on April 21, 2019:

I have Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Saturn in Pisces! What a combination! Mars, Uranus and Pluto in Virgo, Juptier in Taurus, and Scorpio in Neptune. I've trained in Reiki, and am contemplating taking an Angel course. Does my astrological placement indicate that this would be a good stream of study for me? I'm drawn to all things metaphysical. Any guidance would be wonderful. Thank you.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 10, 2019:

Hello Andrea,

The 4th house rules home, family and real estate, to name a few things. The Moon rules your emotional makeup. So you are very family oriented and may do well in real estate or estate planning. Pisces means you can read others very well, being psychic. You should always trust your intuition. Mercury is the way you think. In Pisces, you think with your heart, not your head. But there could be other influences in your chart that are in signs that will balance this out. So you think often of family ties, and the kind of home atmosphere you want. I really would like to see you in real estate, I have a license, and it depends a lot on instincts and how well you read people. And properties to match them up with. It's a good aspect. Take care.

Andrea on March 08, 2019:

This explained a lot to me I have both my moon and mercury in pisces in the 4th house. I am trying to relate these.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 22, 2018:

The Sun in Pisces means you are kind and spiritual, you accept others for what they are. Mercury is the way you think, and you think with your heart, not your head, and are a dreamer. The Scorpio Rising helps you to be more independent, assertive, sexy, stubborn (which you need with Pisces) and you have a lot of drive to succeed.

Darlene on December 21, 2018:

Hello i have sun,Mercury and Lilith in pisces ,my moon in Taurus and my rising is Scorpio. I was just wondering what do that say about me.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 04, 2018:

I don't know why you are shocked to find your ex has Mercury in Pisces. This rules the way he thinks, with his heart, not his head.

I cannot provide free astrology readings. If you are interested, click the house on my profile page and it will take you to my blog, so you can see what info I need and a schedule of fees, also how I take payment.

Mindy Bailey on December 04, 2018:

I just found out my ex boyfriend has mercury in Pisces and I was shocked. He is selfish only cares about sex and himself and he just wants the chase of getting a new women. He is Scorpio rising Aries sun and Virgo moon Taurus mars. I cry for people all the time and am intuitive. I have Virgo sun Libra moon.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 15, 2018:

I am so glad to hear your creative side is blossoming. You think with your heart with this position.

I can't do much with a list like this, I have to draw it out and do a complete horoscope. It takes me 10-12 hrs. and I charge a fee. I can be reached at

But the Aquarius Sun, Taurus Moon, and Leo Ascendant are all in fixed signs! I wouldn't want to be the one to get you to change your opinions :). Venus in Pisces means you are romantic and sensual, also creative and loving. Mars in Aquarius gives you a talent for knowing how things work and able to fix them. I don't do asteroids. Thanks for reading my work. Best wishes.

Littlefot on March 15, 2018:

This has been very insightful for me. Over the last year and a half I've been on a journey of self-development and self-awareness. my knowledge for spirituality and astrology has grown immaculately and because of it my understanding of self has been better and i've been able to meet my needs. i love art, music and anything creative. i write poetry and music. i love to draw but artistry is something that runs in my family. i never use to share my creative side i use to keep it to myself but not anymore. thank you. p.s i left a piece of me at the bottom.

It's normal to have planets next to the astrology next to your sun sign. Aquarius makes you a nonconformist, so does the Scorpio Rising. You are strong willed and need info to make up your mind, although in Pisces, Mercury means your thoughts are colored by your emotions. Pluto is the home planet of Scorpio, so you will transform or change your life several times, usually to better yourself. The Scorpio Moon makes you emotionally intense.

I feel awful I can't cast horoscopes for free. It's so time consuming, and I often have a waiting list of several weeks. If you go to Cafe, they explain the meanings of the planets in the signs. If you know your birth time, you can get a chart from there (I trust that site). But it will be a lot of astrology jargon that's meaningless to you, and only a few pages about yourself. I truly am sorry. Jean

Hello Noah,

Although I answer short questions here at the comments area, I can't work with this here. It takes 10-12 hours to draw and interpret an astrology chart, and I charge a fee. If you are interested, please go to I would love to help you, but don't have that kind of time to cast and interpret this for free. The site you copy and pasted the info from probably offers a computerized version, and I need different info than this. I have respectfully asked people to stop doing this. Thank you.

I have had a number of very psychic experiences that I would almost discount or shrug off when in favt they were very real. I've come to accept that I'm a channel for psychic energies and understanding my Mercury in Pisces was a huge step. This article was fantastic, thank you. Also, it is a very strange feeling to be an Aquarius sandwiched between a Scorpio rising and Scorpio in my moon.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on October 25, 2017:

Hi, I answered, but an unsure why it's coming up again in my comment section. It should be by the hub itself.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on October 25, 2017:

You are very welcome. Actually, opposite signs like Virgo and Pisces often share traits. A Virgo planet or placement will force you to be detail oriented, but you will be more interested in creative and spiritual matters with the Mercury and Sun in Pisces.

As you said, the Sag Rising makes you more independent and interested in foreign travel and religions, or education and religions or philosophies.

I just answered a person with opposite Sun and Moon, I have it myself. The Sun is your personality people see, but the Moon, which is part of your personality, but mostly rules your emotions, are not so open. So it takes people longer to get to know you. And you probably have to explain yourself more, you don't wear your emotions on your sleeve with the Virgo in you (though the Pisces helps you here). You are not a sociopath, this aspect does make it harder to understand ourselves. We bury our emotions more than even we realize. Take care, Jean

Ego Duality Mishap on October 24, 2017:

Hello Jean,

This was a really good read. My sun and mercury are both in Pisces and this is exactly how I am! I always thought my situational reading was from my Virgo Moon/MC (and I was born under full moon) and I was able to react to situations correctly due to my always thinking mood, but this actual helps me to differentiate how I'm affected by the 2 signs individually. And now I also see my Sag Rising using my need for daydreaming, time alone, and travel to back up my need for freedom. Growing up it was hard to connect with peers due to learning only facts, and things I see, it understanding emotions or feelings at all, kind of a sociopath due to ignorance, but when I matured I learned a lot about myself, and because of that others. I still have troubles with emotions/feelings and still my favorite thing is to go in my head and just observe and connect everything. I'm not much to remember facts, but if I learn a truth, I won't forget it, but it will only show up again if the situation calls for it. Still have a lot of ways to go, but thank you for this Jean!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 14, 2017:

Hi Esther,

All your planets are in a sign, and I'd venture a guess that you have more than Mercury in Pisces. Check a site called, they will give you a list of where all your planets are and explain them. It's one of two sites I trust. Take care.

Esther on September 14, 2017:

Thank you for this article. I'm Sun in Aries and Mercury in Pisces. I've always felt opposed to many Aries characteristics and often felt detached when reading my astrology. This is the first time astrology shined light on my personality. I am an artist/painter and love reading philosophy and psychology. Just daydreaming about looking up into the sky while lying on my back in a boat feels absolutely heavenly. I feel like I've been given a gift today. Thank you!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 06, 2017:

Hi Clauie,

That makes sense. An Aries sun person is normally extroverted. But the moon and other planets are all in a sign. Mercury in Pisces makes this friend a dreamer, who prefers to work behind the scenes. I bet he will do anything to help others though?

Clauie on September 06, 2017:

I have a friend who is an Aries Sun Sign but his mercury is in Pisces. He is very introverted.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on August 31, 2017:

Thanks for the kind words, Afi. My Dad was Pisces, Sun and Moon and used to say that sadly, some people take kindness for weakness. Keep being your kind self though!

Afi on August 31, 2017:

This is so accurate! I'm a Pisces Sun with Mercury in Pisces.. I can relate to this SO much. A lot of people tend to take our kindness for granted though and it's infinitely sad and heartbreaking.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 17, 2017:

Thanks Darshan,

You are correct. Each planet and the Sun are in a sign, which can vary things quite a bit. Mercury only tells us how a person thinks, and even that can change depending on what house it's in, or what other aspects it has to other planets.

Darshan Gandhi on June 15, 2017:

I agree with your article to almost full extent, however certain things always vary by situations. Regardless 9/10 for your accuracy. :-)

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 11, 2017:

Hi Diana,

You sound very positive, you must have a fast vibration rate! You would be a great doctor, because an Aquarius has an intelligent mind to learn all the science and math stuff, but the Pisces makes you sensitive. That's what's missing in doctors today. Sometimes parents mean well but tell us we are a way that we are not. I have health issues and wore braces to school when young, and had to be strong as I got teased a lot. So my parents treated me like a fragile flower and told me I was "high strung." As an adult I am very capable, and as a widow of 3 years I've gone on and even went to a country I never went to by myself, Antigua. So parents don't know everything. And I am a parent of an adult son too.

Yes, if you sit by a person with a low vibration, they start to bring you down right away. You should meditate, I bet you are very psychic. The Pisces in you would be good for writing poetry. I'm Cancer and published a poetry book, but went about it the wrong way. But it can be a fun hobby and way to get out some emotions.

I have waking visions of what will happen at times. A few years ago I was very upset by something, and walked into my BR. My Mom was standing there, except she died in 1995. Work on developing your psychic abilities, they will get stronger. You can burn sage to clear your house of negative energies or use crystals (I have a hub on that on Exemplore). It's been nice "chatting with you"! Take care.

Diana on March 11, 2017:

What you are saying in this article is very accurate! I have my Sun in Aquarius and Mercury in Pisces.

I love being around water,if i could I would stay in water whole day!

I am a medical student and my dream from a very young age was to become a doctor so I could help people.

For me this is a life mission! I feel that i have to do this.

Since I were a child,my teachers told my parents that I am too sensitive and emotional and that I would have trouble later in life because of that.

I am also very attracted towards arts and literature. I have been told in middle school and in highschool that I am very creative and good at writing. For me writing is a way of expressing my feelings. I am better at communicating in writting than verbaly.

When you said that we are intuive you are right! I know when a person has a lower vibration because I can sense it. There were times when i ignored my intuition because it seemed ilogical(the Aquarius part of me ,i guess) and I realised that i were wrong.

It may sound weird,but sometimes I know when something good or right is about to happen. Usually I am right...

Now everything makes sense to me! Thank you very much for your article! :)
