Well we made it through February. I don't know about you but I had a rough one. People losing their minds, trusted people engaging in betrayal, emotional roller coasters, etc. As a person ruled by Gemini, one of Mercury's homes, I can tell you it pretty much sucker punched me, but here I am, still standing and ready for new beginnings. What leaves your life makes way for the new. Boy the Universe is truly testing us!!
And speaking of new beginnings, I am going to be writing my astrology reports weekly from now on. I hope you don't think of this as a too frequent intrusion, but so much is going on starting now, I feel its the way to really focus on each new step we are being led toward, as we fully enter the DAWNING OF THE AGE OF AQUARIUS. I told you in January this is a lot like 1968, well baby, the ship has launched as of today. Buckle up and get ready for CHANGE!!!! All you younger people lamenting not having experienced the 60's - here's your chance. Be bold, Be brave, Be unique, don't follow the pack, don't conform, stop trying to be like everyone else. You are unique. There is no one else like you. Something within you has something special to give to the world. Find it and flaunt it proudly.
So March first is full of change. Its a new Moon, the first of two this month, just like January. the trigger has been pulled for new starts yet again. What was lost in February was mean to be lost. Shake it off, let it go and move forward. You have to be a quick change artist now. Everyday is a new adventure. Be a good girl or boy scout and be prepared for things to change on a moments notice.
New Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune is the beginning of deeper spirituality in our lives. We are reminded that the future is not possible without our connection to the Universe and its plan, not ours. Let go and let God. Are you still talking to your Angels, Higher Self, God, etc.? Make sure its something you do often. I take time each night when I turn the light out to talk to ask for help, for direction, for understanding. Sometimes I have dreams that blow my mind. Vivid color, amazing detail, confirmation that I am on the path, even when boulders appear before me.
Mars is in Libra, not a happy place for Mars the warrior in "lets make nice" Libra, and today he turns retrograde until May 19th. This means forward motion is slowed. Stop trying to push things and let them flow as they were meant to flow. Pushing only makes you crazy, so breathe and relax. All things come to those who wait. Now this does not mean nothing is going to happen now, it means we have to slow down and find the rhythm of NOW and go with it. Exercise to get the frustration out. Get more sleep. Don't try to do too many things at once. This is the time of preparing for a summer of pure craziness. This summer is a powder keg. Be rested and ready for it.
Venus is in Aquarius March 5 - April 5. Universal love is at hand, again in keeping with the new moon, a time to love each other as brothers and sisters, sharing in this world and loving each other and valuing each other for the precious creatures we are. Tell your pals you love them. Thank the Universe for your gifts. Acknowledge the value of plants and animals in our world, and their equal place here with us. Tell Mother Earth how beautiful she is, and how much we love her and thank her for her bounty, for our life support.
Mercury turned direct yesterday. The next couple of days you'll be getting your bearings back, realizing your mind is actually working again. Everyone say WHEW with me!
Tomorrow Saturn, the task master, turns retrograde for 4+ months. Look over your shoulder and see what you didn't complete and complete it. Retrogrades of ANY planet are about looking over your shoulder and wrapping things up. Saturn goes direct on July 20th, in the midst of global protesting and upheavals. June/July will be about what we're pissed off about now, but July 20th new ways of doing things can manifest into solid reality. I cannot stress enough the importance of being ready - emotionally, mentally and spiritually for what is coming for us. You need your wits about you, you need to take a leap. Bond with your tribes and stay tight. Materially prepare for possible natural disasters this summer too. Earthquakes, tornados, volcano's, power outages. Have supplies on hand so you don't have to scramble if something happens.
And the best for last. Thursday Jupiter, the planet of abundance, goes direct. Its been retrograde for months and now her expansion is back. Things move forward, money flows, doors open, and the stinginess is gone. She is still in the middle of the Uranus Pluto square, but in direct motion offers a more positive take on things. BE THANKFUL everyday for what you do have. Take those big ideas to the world. Ask your angels to empower your leadership skills so you can add something to the world that is good, helpful and meaningful.
Best wishes to you all.
