Last week I mentioned that March Madness did not apply to just basketball. It also applies to the weather, at least here in the Tarheel State. The week began with snow and ended with temperatures near 70 degrees. But winter might not be over just yet. The weatherman tells us there is a chance for some frozen precipitation on Tuesday and Wednesday. I can’t say I have ever seen snow on the first day of spring.
March begins in the mutable sign of Pisces and signals the end of the winter season. I read someplace that mutable signs are editors of the zodiac. They are the ones that take what was begun by the cardinal signs, constructed by the fixed signs, and bring it all to completion.
The weather in March is a brilliant example of transition. There seems to be a Universal law that says whenever there is a transition there are also disturbances, upheaval, and unpredictability. These things happen not only when the seasons change but when planets change signs, when leadership changes, and when we shift from one age to another.
I will get back to this thought later. There are a few aspects I want to cover first.
The coming week through the end of March is chock full of all sorts of transitional energy. We are still under the influence of Saturday’s Pisces New Moon. Spring is at our doorstep. It officially arrives Tuesday, 3/20/2018. Tuesday is also the Spring Equinox so we have a lot of energy for new beginnings.
Nature loves balance. The scales won’t be tipped too far toward new beginnings because Mercury is stationing to turn retrograde on Thursday. This will allow us to go back and tie up any loose ends left from the past few months before we get too far into our springtime new beginnings. The universal consciousness always seems to know just how to balance the energy while at the same time moving us to evolve and transition ourselves. It is the natural order of things
Tuesday also give us Mercury conjunct Venus. This is a good aspect for being social, some good laughs, and good conversations. I love it when that happens. This is not a great aspect for work but should be a good one for business.
No major aspects on Wednesday but Thursday is the actual day Mercury turns retrograde. I am sure most of you know what that means. Expect delays or upsets around travel, don’t sign contracts and if you must, be sure to go over them multiple times and with a fine tooth comb.
Friday Venus is square Pluto. This could make for some quite a bit of strong emotion and intense feelings. However, all that passion could come with a hidden agenda. Look for signs of jealousy or possessiveness. Finances could experience some sort of change. Some of us might also notice power plays, betrayal, and/or manipulation.
The last major aspect this week comes around on Saturday when the Sun squares Mars. This is youth, action butting heads with our ego. Those of us with strong Mars influence in our charts might be rather impulsive. These people feel the need to act, to do something even without a goal in mind. Under the right circumstances, this could bring about some very nice creativity. On the other hand, it could cause some heated conversations, defensiveness, and arguments. This aspect has the energy of accidents. Remember, Mars is all about action and he will be square our ego and how we present ourselves to the world. We could be a bit accident prone about now.
Now, let’s go back to the subject of transitions. As many of you know we are now in the “Age of Aquarius”. Just as the planets moving from one sign to another cause some upheaval, so does the transition from one age to another. We can see this playing out on the world stage practically every day, sometimes in multiple ways.
An age last about 2000 years. The transition time between ages is full of twists, turns, and turmoil, just like now. The transition from the Piscean Age to the Aquarian age got a big boost from the Harmonic Convergence in 1987 and has intensified every since 12/21/2012. The actual transition period from one age to the next takes 200-350 years to complete. We are just getting started. Most people believe there are only few years of intense turmoil and that this is where we are at the moment.
As lightworkers bring in more light to planet Earth, it causes the manifestation of negative thoughts and brings them to the surface to be transmuted into love nad light. This is why we are seeing all the turmoil we are right now.The planets are helping and astrologers have not seen aspects like the ones we are having now is a long long time.
We’ve got a few more years of intense negativity to get through before we will live a peaceful existance where there is enough for every one. Over all, things won’t let up in our life time but they will by the next time we come around.
Well, that is about as deep as I am going going to go for now. I wish everyone a faboulous week ahead. Remember to be kind and smile from the heart.
