Quotations from Esoteric Astrology, relevant to the meaning of Mercury in relation to Pisces.

Mercury in Relation to Pisces—The Meaning of the “Fall”:

“…when we find that the power of Mercury is lessened in Pisces and that it finally “falls” in that sign, what is the esoteric and spiritual meaning? Simply, that after the stage of initiation in Capricorn, as the result of the reversal of the wheel and the consequent experiences, and after the triumph of Scorpio, the power of the mind steadily lessens till finally (like other aspects of form life in the three worlds) it comes to an end and its mediating and illuminating aspects between soul and physical brain are no longer required. The man, coming definitely into full soul consciousness, requires now no mediator but deals directly himself with his emanating source. Mercury is then met with again under another name, this time as the Sun, mediating between the higher aspects soul and spirit for Mercury and the Sun are One.” (EA 131)

1. Mercury in Pisces—Shedding the light which saves by ending all darkness. Of the Light characteristic of Pisces, D.K. says: “The Light of the World. This is the light, revealing the light of life itself. It ends forever the darkness of matter”.

20. Mercury in Pisces—The soul-personality dialogue focuses upon sensitizing the personality to increasingly subtle impression.

22. Mercury in Pisces—The soul/personality conflict generated by increased soul/personality communication centers upon the issue of how to condition the personality so that it accepts an increasingly sacrificial life.

27. Mercury in Pisces—A mind adept at introducing buddhi to the realm of manas.
