After being rather uncomfortable in Taurus, the sign of his detriment, where sensuality and stubbornness perhaps added to the planet’s allure, Mars is now ready for mental rationality, quick thinking, dexterity and perhaps even some maverick moves. Mars in Gemini is rather unleashed and free to prank around as and if he pleases, Gemini is, after all, a smart-ass sign that nearly always manages to have the last word, well, sometimes, all the words, since the gift of the gab certainly is part of this socialite sign.
Mars in Gemini can lend itself to glib remarks and extreme sarcasm when[...]
Is the fog lifting? Nope…it’s getting thicker!
On the 28th of March Mercury will station direct at 16°05’ Pisces, a direct station after three weeks of retrograde is usually a cause for a huge sigh of relief from many of us. Unfortunately, not so this time since Mercury stations directly on Neptune (16°57’) which means more confusion due to day-dreaming and fuzzy thoughts in general.
Mercury entered Pisces on the 10th of February so by now we should be aware if not accustomed to the dreamy nature of this sign – have you been feeling mentally fuzzy too and how thick can the [...]
The Pisces party continues…
On the 26th of March, Venus, the planet of love, romance, harmony and values, glides in to the sign of Pisces, the sign of its exaltation, ruled by Jupiter (traditional) and Neptune (modern).
Although the Sun has just left Pisces we still have Mercury, Neptune and now Venus there. However, until the 31st, when Mars enters Gemini, we will have a lack of the Air element in the skies which means that seeing the big picture and planning ahead could be difficult.
So we may be lost in a realm of fantasy, washed over by feelings of love and happiness, dreaming [...]
If you love me then set me free…..
Only three and a half hours after the Spring Equinox (Aries ingress) there will be a Full Moon at 00°09’ Libra, a Cardinal, Air sign ruled by Venus.
This is the first Full Moon of two in Libra this year (the second one occurs on 19th April on the last degree of the sign).
While Aries loves challenges and initiations, fighting for them if necessary, Libra, a Cardinal Air sign, wants partnership and prefers fairness and justice in all relationships, but these are also values that can be fought for too. What do we value most, ourselves or our [...]
How can we see clearly?
There will be a New Moon at 15°47’ Pisces, a Mutable, Water sign ruled by Neptune (modern) and Jupiter (traditional) only hours after Uranus makes its entrance into Taurus.
The Sun and Moon in Pisces will be closely conjunct Neptune, the modern ruler of Pisces with Mercury stationing retrograde at the end of this sign. This could make sensitivity and imagination top-rank allowing the veil between worlds to be lifted, thus giving us a possibility to see the past and the future as we gain major receptivity to subliminal messages from our own soul (Pisces and [...]
Shake, rattle and roll…..
Uranus moves into Taurus at 8.28 GMT on the 6th of March only 8 hours before the New Moon in Pisces.
Uranus has an 84-year orbit and spends roughly 7 years in each sign. It was discovered in 1781 by an amateur astronomer named William Herschel and, in more modern times, was given joint ruler-ship of the sign of Aquarius together with traditional ruler Saturn.
Astrologer Bil Tierney* has the following to say:
“Uranus with its equatorial plane at right angles to its orbital plane is an odd-ball in our solar system and appears to roll on its side as it [...]
Confusion reigns and we have to make some sense of it!
On the 5th of March we will have the first Mercury retrograde station of 2019. The planet apparently seems to stop in its tracks at the very end of the sign of Pisces (29°38’) before beginning its seemingly backward motion to reach 16°05’ Pisces where it will station direct on 28th March.
Mercury entered Pisces on the 10th of February so by now we should be aware if not accustomed to the dreamy nature of this sign – have you been feeling mentally fuzzy too?
Mercury retrogrades have become publicly acknowledged as moments [...]
