Monday February 27th–
Mars in aries opposes retrograde Jupiter in libra at 6:24am, aligning the will and drive with the planet of expansion but also excess and exacerbation. Mars/Jupiter can be great for taking action and having the courage to start new things- but it can also manifest as exacerbation of an already very intense frequency. Mars in aries wants what he wants and he wants it now. Jupiter in libra reminds us that we need to think of others and work towards compromise and collaboration or it could be all out war. Navigate the terrain wisely right now.
mercury conjoins the south node at 3’10 pisces at 9:58am, aligning the mind and intellect with the karmic south node. Communications and thinking can default to old karmic patterns right now. We need to steer clear of denial, delusion, self or other deception and generally wanting to bury our heads the sand and not take accountability for our lives! Pay attention to communications heard today- as something related to the past can be revealed.
mars cojoins eris at 22’44 aries at 4:44pm (!!!), aligning the will warrior and drive with the Goddess of discord and chaos! another firey alignment that can get out of hand if not used wisely! Mars/eris can be great for disrupting what needs to be disrupted but it can also express as aggression, rage, anger and even violence or war. We all need to be aware of where we are trigger happy and reactive- personally and collectively. Our inability to reign in our ego can cost us right now. On the positive side we can use this astrology to bring to Light that which no one (or we) do not want to look at and see. This is the only way we can truly change things.
At 5:49pm Mercury in pisces semisquares pluto in Capricorn, creating tension and friction between the mind and intellect and the Lord of the Underworld. Mercury in pisces is very idealistic, sees the best in others and likes to focus on the Light. Pluto on the other hand likes to focus on the shadow and is interested in seeing what is really going on underneath the surface of things. Communications can be penetrating and deep but they can also be intense and revealing if we have been burying our heads in the sand and avoiding facing the Truth. Steer clear of being dishonest and/or deceiving yourself or others and instead be willing to dive deep and get to the root and Truth of matters right now.
Tuesday February 28th–
There are no major aspects today. The moon is in firey, assertive and dynamic aries all day long! The only aspect the moon makes today is a conjunction to venus in aries who is about to station retrograde- bringing focus to our emotions, feelings and needs. This is a day to be aware of where we are being impulsive, restless, reactive or overly self focused in our own needs and desires which can come at the expense of others and the health of our relationships.
Wednesday March 1st–
Mars in aries semisextiles chiron in pisces at 6:31am, aligning the will and drive with the Wounded Healer. This is a great aspect for taking action to heal our wounds and work to bring deeper awareness to personal and collective patterns running us Unconsciously. Mars in aries is assertive and ready to take action and chiron is helping us to see what needs to be addressed, faced and healed. Get to it!
Mercury in pisces semisquares Uranus in aries at 2:40pm, sesquiquadrates retrograde Jupiter in libra at 4:21pm and later tonight mercury semisquares eris in aries at 10:53pm. Mercury is triggering the Uranus/eris conjunction and opposition to Jupiter which was exact in the last several days (and also triggered by mars!). Uranus/eris brings awakening and potential for radical revolution and change- but it also unearths anger and rage and can express as reactivity. With Jupiter opposing both we are challenged to find ways to assert ourselves and take a stand without harming or dominating others. With mercury involved communications can be interesting. Unexpected information can aries and anger can erupt. Navigate the communication terrain wisely.
Juno in Capricorn trines ceres in Taurus at 5:57pm (7’46), aligning the Goddess of Love and beauty with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. This lovely alignment helps us to find balance between our needs and desires for partnership and connection and our needs and desires to be nurtured and to caretake others. With earth signs involved do something tangible, practical but also sensual and fun (ceres is Taurus after all!) to show up for yourself and others in your life!
The Sun cojoins Neptune at 11’42 pisces at 6:44pm, aligning the conscious self and ego with the planet that dissolves ego boundaries. This can be lovely astrology for mysticism, spirituality, creativity, compassion and selfless service. Yet it’s not so great for boundaries, being present, dealing with reality and being grounded. Take time to retreat, reflect, dream, meditate and introspect today.
Mercury in pisces sextiles juno in Capricorn at 11:49pm, helping us to communicate about our needs and desires in partnership. This is a great aspect for having conversations with others about agreements and what we are willing to compromise on. Mercury in pisces is intuitive and sensitive while juno in Capricorn is responsible and committed. Being sensitive and romantic but also grounded and loyal in our relationships is supported right now.
Thursday march 2nd–
Mercury in pisces sextiles ceres in Taurus at 12:07am, helping us to communicate about our needs and desires for safety, security, nurturing and nourishment. We are also supported in communicating in a way that is nurturing towards others. Doing something tangible to let those we love know we love them is supported right now!
Retrograde Jupiter in libra opposes Uranus in aries at 5:15pm, creating the 2nd of 3 jupiter/Uranus oppositions (the first was ? and the second was ?). amazing opportunities for sudden shifts, growth, evolution and radical change in life and in relationships in incoming. We are seeking to find a better balance between self and other, give and take, connection and independence. Our need for freedom and change is STRONG but we have to balance it with awareness of others, our commitments and agreements with others. Jupiter in libra is teaching us how to not deny our own needs but also to not only focus on what we want. The middle path is where it’s at right now. On a collective level Jupiter can exacerbate the rebellious and revolutionary energy present on the planet right now. Pay attention to what is going on in the world this week to see what is being activated and what is changing on a global scale.
Friday march 3rd–
The Sun in pisces semisextiles venus in aries at 4:49am, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Goddess of Love and beauty who is about to station retrograde tomorrow! The sun can shine a light on what territory we are heading into both personally but also collectively as the Goddess heads into her Underworld phase tomorrow. Pay attention!
Mercury in pisces semisquares mars in aries at 9:47am, making communication firey and feisty. Finding ways to speak our Truth and take a stand without being aggressive and conflict oriented is key. It’s equally important to not sweep things under the carpet and wear rose colored glasses to ignore reality that is staring us in the face :-0!
Saturday march 4th–
Venus stations retrograde at 13’08 aries at 1:09am, taking the Goddess of Love, beauty, abundance and self worth into the Underworld! We entered the front end shadow of venus at the end of January- so we have been in the venus retrograde frequency since then (venus went over all the degrees she will now backtrack over from end of January until today). Venus retrograde is a time to reevaluate our relationships, our needs and desires, our finances, values, self worth and self Love. Venus retrograde in aries is not a time to go after whatever it is we want in aries fashion. We are challenged to reign in our desires, question what we think we want and need and do the deep work of diving down and in to get to Unconscious patterns that are the Source of these desires/needs. For more info on venus retrograde be sure to read the astrology blog I posted about it which can be found here- https://www.divineharmony.org/cosmic-insight-divine-harmony/divine-harmony-astrology-blog/venus-retrograde-going-deeper-surface/ (also be sure to read the weekly horoscopes posted for this week!)
Mercury cojoins Neptune at 11’47 pisces at 3:10am, aligning the conscious mind and intellect with the planet of intuition and otherworldly-ness. Mercury/Neptune can be highly intuitive and psychic even. It’s important that we pay attention to our dreams, intuition and imagination right now- as they are powerful and can deliver potent messages. Being clear in communication with others and choosing to see/listen to the Truth and not just what we wish things would be is key right now.
Mercury in pisces semisextiles retrograde venus in aries at 8:17pm, making the first aspect between a planet and venus who just stationed retrograde earlier today. Mercury/venus aligns the mind and the heart and helps us to communicate from a place that allows for and honors both thoughts and feelings. Speak from the heart and share your Truth today! (but willing for your thoughts and feelings to shift and change in the coming weeks as venus navigates her Underworld journey)
Sunday march 5th–
Mars in aries semisquares Neptune in pisces at 7:52am, creating tension between the warrior and drive and the planet of mysticism, illusion and confusion. Typically mars in aries wants to be direct and deal with things head on but Neptune brings an illusory, confusing energy and perhaps even deception or behind the scenes manipulation. Not everything is what it seems so you want to question your actions before you take them- and be willing to question what you see/hear around you as well. Steer clear of checking out from responsibility, spiritual by passing or turning to addictions to numb out. Instead align mars and Neptune and become a spiritual warrior- one who is willing to take action based on your ideals, visions and inner knowing!
Mars in aries trines Saturn in Sagittarius on the Galactic Center at 12:45pm, aligning the will and drive with the planet of mastery and karma who happens to be on the point at which the center of our galaxy moves around and Sources from. Mars/Saturn is great for getting things done and have the patience and discipline to stay the course and see things through to the end result/end goal. Mars in aries is pure power and with Saturn involved we can harness that pure power in masterful, disciplined ways. Add in the Galactic Center and there is some very high vibration knowledge, wisdom and energy present right now that we can all access if we choose to discipline our ego selves and let the Higher Self take the reigns!
Chiron in pisces semisquares ceres in Taurus at 7:26pm, bringing tension and friction between the Wounded Healer planetoid and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. Old wounds and pain from childhood can arise right now- particularly anything to do with not feeling nurtured, cared for, loved, safe or secure. Stuff playing out in current home/family situations can be very much replays of the past. Healing is possible when we are willing to go into our wounds rather than try to ignore them or numb out from them. Somatic based body work and therapies can be deeply healing right now.
Have a blessed week…
