The Sun is in Aries and the energy to accomplish is alive again, although Mercury being retrograde a few more days in Pisces will certainly ensure we do not get carried away too quickly. As we seek to differentiate ourselves from the pack, strike out on our own mission and claim our destiny, something back home is calling- roots. This week is like a huge pivot point in molasses, as Mercury comes to standstill with Neptune, Lord of Oceans. It may feel like steam needing to be let off until next week when the messenger is fully direct again. Your yoga mat, journal, guitar, canvas, the gym and all hiking trails are your friend.
Make the most of everyday contact with the Divine. You may feel the Goddess speaking to you through tears, her graces flowing through you in meditation achieved through whatever practices free your mind. A sense that its more important to you to act out the things that feel Divinely inspired than your to-do list. Intuition and dreams are more alluring. Cleansing takes focus- spring cleaning, liver cleansing, old-story cleansing, emotional cleansing, colon cleansing, relationship cleansing. The waters of the body, especially the kidneys are implied- drink lots of water and try and sweat, soak and sing.
3/26- Venus enters Pisces and 3/28 Mercury stations Direct conjunct Neptune
Please allow everyone a little extra forgiveness. It’s a foggy, froggy world out there. Mercury has risen as morning star, and whatever themes are begging some attention in your life have probably come to the surface of your consciousness. Pisces might be foggy in one stage, but then there is the Oneness- the eternal access point of prime-order, the source of all order, the origin itself. The place from which all things come, and all things return.
It’s interesting how all of the mystery schools and ancient spiritual traditions are trying to get us out of this separated reality back to source and oneness, yet in Astrology there is so much focus on Pisces and Neptune being a place of confusion, fear and grief. True, this is a space we will often have to face things un-manifest, but the magic is that all we do is let go and it simply dissolves. Suddenly we see that there was no separation between our fears and our loves. The source contains all things, and it is the original source of all manifestation, including ours.
It is the state which lends complete surrender into love. This is the reason it is considered Sacred. It is untouchable, yet omnipresent. It is the essence of all things, including love, Venus, and it is why She is exalted there for the next month. Venus in Pisces is the one that sees no “other” in the face of a stranger, but the very same as their own Mother, child or self. It is the washing away of all the seemingly important racket of daily life and replacing it with the very core of what is truly important in life. Love. Live Your Love. Do not be afraid of others taking it. It was never yours alone anyway.
3/31- Mars in Gemini
Write, craft, create and express through the mind and hands. Interesting that symbolically the mind and the hands are connected through this sign, and yet it is perfect in reflecting it’s dualistic nature between being a thinking and a doing human. This is a great time to practice our crafting- like spider who wove creation into being, Gemini weaves stories, like the beads of a necklace, to endure through time a particular thought.
If all of creation is one great Mind, like many philosophers say, then the delicate weaving of this reality is but a string of pearls. This is what String Theory proposes- that all of creation is held together by invisible layers of strings in geometric pattern. It is this layer of strings that connects the higher creative realm of source and this Earthly one, where the creations are happening. These pearls make up what is called the Quantum Gap, and it is accessible through the presence of our minds, when they become still and focused.
Scientists now say that only 4% of our Universe is matter making 96% of the universe “empty” space, or what is being referred to now as dark energy or dark matter. The same goes for our own bodies. It is this spacious realm that contains the strings and sacred geometry that connect and communicate the dimension we live in. This is the Quantum Gap, this is where the alignment between the creative force and the creation itself lies. This is what we tap in order to truly be co-creators in the manifestation of our reality.
We can tune into this space during meditation by feeling the space between the atoms in our bodies. It feels like a hum, like a tingling throughout every cell. This awareness is the potential held in the energy of the archetype of Gemini. Mars is the piece of Divine Free Will we all carry, and can be powerfully directed towards the conscious awareness of our Divine Nature though being present in all of our daily actions. Coupled with Venus in Pisces, we have a month that is beautifully charged for spiritual and metaphysical upgrades if we choose to embrace it.
South Node conjunct Pluto
The alignment of Pluto with the South node in Capricorn asks that we dig into our cultural traditions and find what is transformative and empowered from our ancient traditions. This inherently requires that we be willing to face and confront the parts that are not working. What makes you feel disempowered in this world? Is it lack of emotional support? Is it rigid laws, control or hierarchy that keeps you from feeling free to actualize yourself?
Remember that we co-create the world we live in and we make this rich by cultivating conscious culture. No matter who owns the company, it is the employees to make it run. No matter who is elected into power, perhaps we should be returning to these positions as one of service again anyways, it is the people who should be allowing that position.
When we delegate our fate to someone else we become victims of their decisions. But we have the opportunity to take back our fate, through wisdom, knowledge and the power of the key- the tree of life is rooted in each of us, so even in the midst of great trials, we remain free.
The Capricorn-Cancer axis is about culture. Cancer is the roots, mother, home, security and those we consider family. Capricorn is the government, hierarchy, rules, order and traditions.
We are being called upon to grow our roots deeply into that which feeds us. And do not be mistaken, the forest is stronger than one tree. There are various forms of culture that can form, find what makes you feel a part of, secure and nurtured, and grow together.
Turn to the Earth, your neighbors, friends and offer your support where you can. This builds true social security, knowing that in times of need there will be others there for you too. It is human nature to stick together, like the trees, and in this we have localized sustainable resources that we do not need an authority to access.
If you’ve made it this far congratulations- this has been a transmission of Mercury retrograde conjunct Neptune, complete with several rewrites and snack breaks. I hope you have enjoyed <3
