March Mayhem

March Mayhem

Let’s talk about the beginning of March and the Pisces New Moon that is happening on Wednesday, March 2, at 12:36 EST.  There is a large stellium building in Pisces this New  Moon. We also have Mars exactly conjuncting Pluto on the same day being backed up by Venus and the dwarf planet Vesta.  This is decision time. 

What do you want, I mean really want deep in your soul? Mars is in the last few degrees of Capricorn conjuncting Pluto.  This conjunction happens every two-ish couple of years, but this is special because Mars is in his exaltation in Capricorn, and Venus, his lover, is along for the ride.  Like Bonnie and Clyde they are heading into Aquarius, but firs they are going to pull into the  Underworld (Pluto)  b for a brief pitstop.  This conjunction with Pluto is about deep transformation regarding your desires and your values. 

Don’t forget that Saturn, in Aquarius, will be exactly conjunct Mercury on the same day, and this is about long-term manifestation and commitment regarding what you are focusing on.  So if Mars and Venus come up from the Underworld it could be a rebirth that looks more like a great escape in a hail of bullets, so you’d better have your noggin’ in the right place.

With the energy of Jupiter conjunct the Moon and Sun in Pisces, it’s time to, “Go big, or go home,” with your dreams.  Jupiter loves to take a risk and all of these celestial objects in Pisces are harmoniously sextiling Uranus in Taurus, so could be the right time to look for a miracle (wink, wink) or at least a colossal new beginning.

Let’s face it, you are manifesting all the time, whether you are doing it consciously or unconsciously. If you can feel this energy growing in intensity then your consciousness is ready to take charge, but like any good opportunist, you will need a plan.  Focus, dammit, focus!  Write down three things you wish for and use this Bonnie and Clyde energy surge to propel you forward.  You will either walk away a fool, or a queen. 

The Sun will exactly conjunct Jupiter on Saturday, March 5 and this can help you on your journey.  This conjunction will take you deep – right down to the bottom of your soul, and it is there in the darkness where you have the chance to face your truth and then create the truth you want to consciously create. You see, if you consciously get into the drivers seat you could choose your next destination as Mars and Venus head into future (Aquarius) on Sunday, March 6, reborn.  Anything is possible, so straighten your crown and go get it GIRL!

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius – Jan. 30-Feb. 20, 2021

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius – Jan. 30-Feb. 20, 2021

Ready for a rewind of the mind?  The first Mercury retrograde of 2021 is here and will herald an entire year of Mercury retrograding in air signs.

Mercury goes retrograde typically three times per year.  Some years we might get an extra one, like a bonus track, but the rule of thumb is three.  This portends a time for miscommunication, technical difficulties, travel challenges, etc. However, it can also present a great opportunity to do a rewind on anything in your life that involves communications – so, essentially everything – but you can narrow down the tracks by knowing what house Aquarius rules in your chart.  You can go to Foxy Astrology and get a free birth chart to find this information.

In 2020, Mercury started all of his retrograde periods in water signs (Pisces 2/17, Cancer 6/18, Scorpio 10/14). In 2021 we have all three Mercury retrogrades in air signs:

  • Aquarius – 1/30 – 2/20 (Fixed Air)
  • Gemini – 5/29 – 6/22 (Mutable Air)
  • Libra – 9/27 – 10/18 (Cardinal Air)

Air signs are about communication, thinking, doing, and socialization.  Aquarius traditionally rules the 11th house of the zodiac, which is about the collective, kindred spirits – basically the people you would join a fan club with.

The first retrograde period is in Aquarius with no less than three other planets: Saturn, Jupiter, Venus, and the Sun. Add in Mercury going retrograde at 26 degrees and that is a whole lotta of backtracking in Aquarius (fixed air).  Not to mention that this energy will be squaring Uranus in Taurus (fixed earth). This is significant because squaring energy brings on internal conflict, and in two fixed signs this conflict will require change to our perception of the things we love and value.

{ Note – Aquarius and Taurus are both fixed signs, which is a quality know for its stubbornness, but also having what it takes to get the job done.

Music of the spheres anyone?

Mercury and Uranus are harmoniously connected and work together to impact us and our minds. Uranus rules Aquarius, and Mercury rules Gemini — both air signs– and both signs that Mercury will be retrograding in this year.  Mercury guides our conscious thoughts and Uranus guides our unconscious thoughts; they just operate on different levels, like a “chord progression” to produce a harmonic frequency.

Mercury is the lower octave of Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius.  To understand the lower octave concept, first we have to establish that Mercury is a “personal” planet. This simply means that he impacts our daily life because he moves through the zodiac rather quickly, spending 14 – 30 days in each sign.  Uranus is an “outer” planet that moves slowly and impacts us generationally, spending about seven years in a sign.

During the first Mercury retrograde in Aquarius (while Uranus is in Taurus), our consciousness could take some major quantum  leaps.  This could lead to mental fatigue…especially regarding use of technical devices for communication. So basically, we will all need to take a timeout! If you have considered practicing meditation, this would be the optimal time to start. If you are already a meditator, get ready to connect to the music of the spheres! 

Having three retrograde periods, all in air signs, will actually provide a great opportunity to tune into the multiple “Aha!” moments we will all be experiencing. This year is one that will definitely blow our minds!
