Perhaps we are preparing for ‘the Ides of March’? The world has upped its ‘change mode’ of transformational demand, especially for the first week in March, and it might be wise if we take a moment to recalibrate just what we wish of these up-coming stationary- energy- shifts. When I speak of planetary stations, going either direct or retrograde, please remember I’m referring to an intense expression of a planet’s force. Stations are pivotal points in a planet’s orbit, as viewed from earth.
I hope you find it helpful to know some Astrologic-energy basics so that you can work with greater understanding, not take it so personally, and use these time frames as constructive building blocks. Remember: 1. We are all in this together. 2. We have great opportunities in this mind-blowing change. 3. We chose to come into this time, therefore the Spirit is ready, even if we are nervous. Trust Spirit to enter and surpass old mach 10 speed barriers. 4. There are magical moments of cosmic co-mingling and higher dimensions. Don’t pull the covers over your head and miss them.
Note the following-in order of appearance-all within an 8 day time period! Yikes & Wow!
Feb. 27- Moon is at perigee. That means closest to earth-affecting tides, within and without, as well as weather. Expect more push-pull extremes, including stock market reactions.
Feb. 28- March 1- New Moon in Pisces, with ruler Neptune strong in Pisces. We shall be more sensitive, spacy, fluid and foggy…if not magical and lost, feeling our Oneness, or drugged. Ask: “What is my spiritual mission? Why am I here now?” You may find answers.
The longer lasting formidable square-off of Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto is affecting solar energy, which may be part of feeling too sensitive, challenged, tired, over-amped, and anxious.
Feb. 28-March 1-Mercury stations direct. Give it a couple of days before it’s operating as usual. We will hopefully have fewer snafus in communication and transportation, electronics and travel. Remain patient and watchful while Mercury gets up to speed. Between the Mercury/Mars hand off you may find agreements need re-negotiating, alliances need massaging.
March 1-Mars, ruler of commitment, energy, anger, libido, stations to go retrograde until July. We will be in review mode of all commitments, how we express energy and anger, especially that polarity of ‘respond or react.’ Because Mars is in Libra this force will be part of reassessing our relationships.
March 2- Saturn, Big Daddy’s boss, turns retrograde. We are all things weeeeny because Saturn asks us to step up and do it right, be perfect, and take charge, take on more responsibility, and be a better boss of our life. Slow down and solidify what you have constructed. Make sure foundations are in good shape. We now enter a review time, until July, of these multifarious issues.
March 6- Venus enters Aquarius where she is friendly but detached. We may grow more concerned with ideas of brotherhood, freedom, and co-operating for a cause. Venus is always interested in what gives us a sense of self worth and in Aquarius we may find other unconventional people with whom to create a unique plan or design.
March 6- Jupiter turns direct and as we shift slowly into forward motion, Jupiter asks, “are we ready to surpass old boundaries?” In Jupiter’s large, gaseous ‘more is more-ness,’ we may find ourselves moving forward with larger visions about an old project that got side-lined in Nov. of 2013 when she went retrograde. We have been in review mode for a while- it’s time to take action and feel into and act on the bigger picture.
This is a lot to chew on. Off the body tools of healing and sweetness. Sit in silence, in the Lotus mudra. Place your New Moon seeds of intention within the mudra, and breathe through them, then open your heart and chant. ”OM” Is a fine chant, holding everything we need. You can also call spirit closer by chanting: “Hey Govinda, hey Govinda, Gopala Hari.” Roughly translated it means “Hey Spirit, come over here, I’m here, I’m ready.”
