Tip of the Week:
We have entered the final stretch towards the official start of spring. The timing for the seasonal turn is virtually timeless and stone structures and sacred monuments designed to determine the exact moment of Spring Equinox reaches back to the very dawn of civilization. This cycle of light reveals the intimate and consistent relationship between the Sun and Earth. Yet, with this as its solid and steady platform, the planets are ever in their own steady, cyclic motion and the angular relationships they share are always changing and have never and will never be precisely the same, twice! It is upon this foundation that Western Astrology operates.
Regarding key current cycles, the Pisces New Moon occurs on March 13 hosting seeds of visionary fervor. The Sun enters Aries to start spring on March 20 and will serve to activate Mars in Gemini. Yet, Mercury entering Pisces March 15/16 could have a subduing effect, as with denial, evasion and escapism, a persistent theme and reality for many people since Winter Solstice.
Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)
A striking opening in the clouds to reveal a cobalt blue sky metaphorically illustrates the influence of Mars in Gemini and Mercury in Aquarius for you. It began last week but will close before this week ends. Positively, you will capture this opening to gain some clarity. Specifically, financial ambitions and/or the development of talents waiting their turn, is on your mind.
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
The Pisces New Moon will activate a new cycle for us all. For you, it points to friendships and social networks and club or group involvements. Mars and Mercury will contribute to this focus and you may even be able to see through the coming Mercury in Pisces fog. Positively, a fresh activation of your dreams will lead to breakthrough momentums, thanks to Uranus in Taurus.
Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Sweet dreams are made of these…, yet so too are nightmares. It is Neptune and the Pisces factor underway that indicates the swinging pendulum. Which way it goes is very much up to you regarding your perceptions, interpretations and attitude. The swamp to avoid is self-pity. Compassion for others guided by creative thinking will guide you to how you can best express inspiration.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
The deep end theme that has been underway will continue, yet there will be a definite shift this week. It may be described as spiritual. Positively, you will enter an awakening cycle that could synchronize with genuine states of illumination. This may prove true especially in the short term. Focus on this goal now if you want to dive deeper into seeing previously hidden truths.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23)
Some cycles lure us into deep, hidden places where we tend not to go and this is one of them. While potentially symbolic of a ‘dark night’, the good news is that there is treasure to be found there. Yet, it will require commitment, courage and a willingness to do the work required. What that is depends on your situation. Success depends on you showing up, ready and willing.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22)
Upon reflection, you will notice a series of shifts and start activating change in your lifestyle. These include the development and expression of some of your core talents. The Pisces New Moon will serve to activate these into fuller, creative expression. Mars in Gemini is especially helpful in regards to learning and or teaching new skills.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
The emphasis on health continues. It invariably encompasses your lifestyle rhythms, routines and choices. Changes in your diet may be the first area to focus on. Initiating new activities like walking 2-3 km a day could prove to be a winning idea. Of course, some of the emphasis could well include visits to doctors and health practitioners. Take action, get answers and avoid assumptions and wishful thinking.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Spring is right around the corner and it is already calling you out of your den. This will become increasing evident over the coming week. Like a bear out of hibernation, however, it may take a while for you to fully awaken. Yet, it can still prove inspirational and even productive. The key is to want to be inspired and to direct your focus accordingly. Emphasize courage of convictions, yet avoid fixed conclusions
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
The planetary alignments are indicating that you are seeing the world as with new eyes. This awakening of perceptions includes your role in it, as well. What constitutes home and family is also featured. New interpretations are featured. Other players, possibly antagonists, are also playing their destined roles. Keeping an open mind about what their purpose is will help and it may include karmic returns.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Imagination-stirring events are destined to play a much more active role in your life over the coming weeks. These will cause you to work harder to see a bigger picture. Thinking outside of the proverbial box implies your own habitual perceptions. If you think you see reality as it is, think again. Reflect upon why you perceive and interpret things the way you do and be open to other angles.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
New initiatives activated by last month’s New Moon in Aquarius will now enter a foundation-stabilizing phase. The twist is that sometimes the stabilization process can initially prove destabilizing. This is not necessarily the case, but something you might want to consider. Positively, you have entered a creative cycle that may also prove activating regarding sports and physical assertion.
Pisces (Feb. 20-Mar. 20)
The New Moon in Pisces is finally here and will serve to stimulate new modes of self-expression. While Mercury in Pisces can prove complicated for some, it may prove less so for you. So, this is your cue to tune-in and make the most of this important cycle which is loaded with inspirational focus on the future. Cultural expressions are featured yet all of the above will require focus and discipline.
