I was driving on a favorite road of country plains and surprise ponds, enjoying the late-winter palette of browns and greys, highlighted by crisp snow and skies so blue you think you have your filters on. But then again, who doesn’t have filters on? Is not the trick to realize what filters you are choosing to view and experience your life, fully aware that you can change filters at any time for any reason at all? I was looking at this rowboat, seemingly abandoned out on a lake, frozen into place by recent snows. I was so taken by this scene, thinking about the stuck feeling so many of us have right now. Poised and primed to move forward as the great freeze of the pandemic slows enough so we may begin to step out more gingerly, and yet maybe not quite. Or maybe there are other reasons you feel caught in some situation that just doesn’t seem to be happening fast enough, perhaps seemingly not moving at all. This is exactly the time to check your filters. What filter are you choosing? Joy? Anticipation? Horror? Fear?
More on the NEW ENERGIES blasting us at ILLUMINATIONS.
As the Sun entered Pisces earlier this week joining Jupiter and Neptune already transiting this mutable water sign, we are all in a very dreamy, boundary-challenging time. Like when light is refracted through water causing things to appear distorted from their original form, so too is your perception distorted by the Piscean filter. Where Pisces falls in your chart is the area of your life where confusion and indecision is rife. Any planets or points in the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) will be impacted by these Piscean transits. Things could get way more confusing. Triple check anything that requires exactness as edges are blurred.
Escape fantasies are front and center, as are your favorite addictions – anything to soothe the rawness Pisces feels. You might be feeling the pain of the world’s birth pangs into a new era. You could easily feel overwhelmed by what seems unsolvable – just the time to work on your inner condition, the one area that absolutely benefits by focusing your attention there. Focusing your attention on outer conditions you cannot affect only makes you feel crazier and crazier is the last thing you need right now.
Also you may be crying a lot. Weeping copiously would not be out of the question at all these days.
Let the tears flow. Cleanse yourself so grief and trauma and anything you are releasing
do not get lodged in your body.
Saturn at 17 degrees Aquarius is separating from its square to Uranus at 11 degrees Taurus
but is still well within orb to feel the impact of the old desperately trying to hold on (Saturn) as the new comes blasting through (Uranus). Where this square plays out in your chart is a real zinger.
Mercury cruising through Aquarius could make for some interesting conversations but not necessarily ones that soothe or satisfy any need/desire for touchy-feely warmth and cuddly support. Be open to way out-of-this-world breakthrough ideas and innovative solutions to seemingly impossible-to-solve problems.
Both Venus and Mars are moving through Capricorn, the cardinal EARTH sign ruled by Saturn. Traditional values and expressions of love and war are to be expected. Capricorn is relentless in its pursuit of what it sees as a necessary goal. Depending on what that goal is…well, you get the picture.
Be clear on your own goals – what you are wanting to attract (Venus) and where you want to put your focused action (Mars).
