The Pisces Mentality
In Pisces, Mercury sees life more like an impressionistic painting than one done in the realistic style. Sounds, images, shapes, memory, psychic impressions, emotional tones - all these are absorbed as part of an overall perception. Mercury in Pisces picks up on subtleties in the atmosphere that others might not pick up. Their outlook is dreamy, and often they appear tuned in to some distant message or inner vision.
The mind is directed by the emotions in Pisces, more than by logic. This Mercury is very sensitive to the environment, and is easily jarred by loud noises and the psychic static of crowds. Their mind is the ultimate psychic sponge, which is both a gift and a challenge. They need lots of time to reflect and unwind their thoughts, and create space to "listen" to their own rich inner narrative.
