A very Happy March to you all! The Saturn square Uranus conjunction completes early this week, for which I’m personally glad because I’m almost out of ‘driving analogies’ to explain it! I’ll go with “hurry and wait” for today, and I credit my friend Crystal for giving me that inspiration!
Themes of this week are control (particularly with how we reveal it), and expressing with a lack of inhibition. Both of these are related to letting go and moving on.
On Monday even while we have the balancing influence of Moon in Libra, the Sun semi square Pluto brings some of our control issues to our surface awareness. And whether this shows up in external situations, at home, in relationship or even regarding something like food, the sticking point is that we expect better of ourselves, and frustration derives from that. While the Libra Moon gives us the tendency to want to “harmonize the issue away” it also helps prevent us from externalizing it and containing it. This allows us the time for discernment to recognize it for what it is rather than project it or avoid it. Yes, the way forward is always through.
On Tuesday, the Moon enters Scorpio. A good day for concentration and for setting aside time to learn, figure out or make progress on something mentally taxing. A good day for reflection too if something has been weighing on your mind and heart since the weekend, there is the emotional availability go to the root. A note that we are complete with the Saturn square Uranus conjunction, and also with Mars in Taurus. While the latter has been long-term focused it has also brought out our defensive and somewhat stubborn side. Now that both are complete, this releases some energy for us.
On Wednesday, Mars enters Gemini for most of the next two months, and (in sharp contrast to Mars in Taurus) we work better in this with lots of short activities than a long term plan. That said, what truly is the difference between these two, other than perspective and task-management? With Mars’ ambition, drive and flexibility, and Gemini’s fast pace we can easily get scattered and distracted but it’s a great time for allowing our interests to expand out and letting ourselves be open to new ideas. And this is amplified by the liberating and enjoyable influence of Venus sextile Uranus.
On Thursday we have the Moon enters Sagittarius and Mercury conjunct Jupiter, both of which extend into Friday. Mercury conjunct Jupiter is a biiiiig energy, an optimistic and enthusiastic one! What would you like to do with this? Will you use it to bring levity and openness to a challenge? To bring a smile to a difficult conversation, or perhaps a burst of energy to something that has felt overwhelming? I’m suggesting some focus here, because high energy days usually have their windows of expression and you could go very quickly from being extremely chatty to unusually quiet. This may be where social distancing starts to have some new benefits, because on Zoom we can leave a situation with relative ease ;-)
This continues into Friday as some successes and victories have your mind casting forward into next week. And this is the best place for your mind to be. I’m sure you have heard the fable of the “two wolves” - to paraphrase: the battle between the wolf of positivity and the the wolf of negativity will be determined by which one you feed. This is important because today we have a Sun Square Moon (where our inner self conflicts with the beliefs that we have superimposed upon it) and Venus semi-square Pluto, both of which brings the tendency to look for something wrong in ourself or those around us. Feed the wold of ‘future potential’, the wolf of ‘getting there in the end.’
Into the weekend and Moon enters Capricorn. There is the sense of the substantial, the greater calling in this coming weekend. Asking ourselves questions about of what we have achieved, and how we serve the greater good. Remember this is not a singular action. It is deep, earthy and quiet. It is beyond question, beyond incentive. Instead of looking at singular action, rather reflect on what has been done for you that you have deeply appreciate. These acts have deeply resonated and integrated in you. The intention to emulating and pay this forward will find its appropriate form. This is enjoyable, easeful, powerful, natural AND IT SHOULD BE. Our creator smiles as we allow it shine through us.
Wishing you a beautiful week my friends,
