Mercury Retrograde in Pisces & Venus into Aquarius  - Feel Your Way

Venus is finishing up her transit of Capricorn and overall in March, we can expect the seriousness to ease up a little in terms of our relationships to others, to ourselves and to the material world (money, property, possessions).  A welcome shift!
Freedom, rebellion, friendliness and a level of emotional detachment will be the focus while Venus transits Aquarius from March 1st to 26th. 

Mercury goes retrograde in Pisces on March 5th, asking us to operate more from our right brain, than our left.  It's time to slow down, and turn inward to collect and process information.  This is the first Mercury retrograde of 2019 and it is setting the stage as all Mercury Retrogrades will be in water signs this year.  The gift is the opportunity to strengthen and fine tune our intuition, and to be more compassionate and emotionally tuned in when it comes to our communications.

Venus, Pluto & The North Node - Transformation through Relationships & Aligning with our True Selves

We are still riding the healing Virgo Full Moon.  And Chiron has just entered Aries.  It's as if we are all in various stages of soul retrieval at this point in time.
With little air energy at present, coupled with Mercury prepping to go retrograde in Pisces, we are being called to trust the wisdom of our intuition over our logical, rationale minds to lead us in the right direction.

Venus conjuncting Pluto long with Saturn and the South Node all in Capricorn and opposite the North Node in Cancer - is a powerful time for relationships.  Ultimately, Pluto is leading us to seeking depth in our relationships.  Superficiality won't cut it with Pluto in the mix.  We have the capacity to attract love, money and what we value now.  Misusing this energy may have use manipulating others, abusing power in relationships or engaged in deception.  This is a beautiful energy for digging deep and transforming our relationships to others and to ourselves, to the material world, our money and our values.
The North Node in Cancer, opposite all of this energy in Capricorn is calling us home.  We are being tasked with aligning our public and private, internal and external lives.

Mercury in Pisces - Messages from Spirit

The message this week centres around Mercury's transit through Pisces from Feb. 11th until April 17th. Mercury will have an extended stay in Pisces due to the retrograde happening between March 6th and 28th.

During this transit we are encouraged to trust our intuition over logic and facts.  We are more sensitive to energetic stimuli.  It’s a time of trusting our guts, our dreams, our intuition, imaginations and messages from the unseen world.  Mercury in Pisces is softer, gentler, more compassionate and empathetic communication at it's best.  On the shadow side, this influence can make us more indecisive, ambivalent, and gullible. We may experience deception in communications.  And may be more vulnerable to seeing things through rose coloured glasses, prone to being taken advantage of, and subject to gaslighting.

Full Moon in Virgo, Chiron into Aries - Clean the Slate

Endings and beginnings this week, Brave Souls!  The full moon in Virgo offers us a chance to purify some area of our lives, to wipe the slate clean and prepare for a fresh start. 
Chiron moving into Aries will have us focussing on the most important job we will ever have - the healing of our identities.  When we do the work to heal ourselves we are able to show up as our best selves in the world, which benefits not only us, but also our families, communities, and the whole world.

We are also entering Pisces season.  Happy Birthday Pisces!  For the next month, we all get to feel a little more Pisces - tuned into the unseen world, and highly aware that we are all connected and in this together.

New Moon in Aquarius - You Say You Want A Revolution?

On February 4th, we have a new moon at 15 degrees Aquarius.  This moon has some warm fuzzies attached to it and it marks the opportunity for liberation, a personal revolution for each of us in some way.  It's a fresh start in whatever house Aquarius sits in our chart.
The new moon is happening right after Imbolc, the pagan celebration marking the half-way point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.  Mother Earth is pregnant with new life, even if we can't see it just yet.

We also have Mars coming together with Uranus and having a tense conversation with the nodes of the moon.  This speaks to a strong urge for liberation, change, action.  We may feel restless and in wanting to make a radical move to free ourselves from the past. Or we may be mired in the past and resentful and angry about it.  The key here is a compassionate, nurturing, higher minded approach, rather than impulsive rebellion, or unhinged force.
To hear how this all speaks to your sign, listen to the video (including the intro).
