The sky is turning around and around. Arriving at the end, the road disappears. What you thought was happening is actually happening; the dream is correct. Reality erodes under your eyes, memories seep through the eternal flame with familiarity. The path of the Fool, the pathless way. Eyes close you see. Grasp it, and it vanishes. Nature shimmers against the backdrop of crumbling empires. Nature crumbles against the backdrop of virtual progress. Small hopes of electric flashes. Hollowed spirits salivate for success, competing for the peak. Hypnotized. The limit is reached. Brick by brick the sanctum is reborn perpetually through sacrificing the outer crown. A fire inside an ocean burns with a thousand eyes. Illumination birthed. Getting back to the beginning. Fingers on the pulse. Counting breaths. One for the dive. One for the horizon. One for the mirage. One for the pearl.
The First Quarter Moon takes place on Monday when the Moon in Gemini squares the Sun in Pisces highlighting some tension and conflicting situations. A funky signature to begin the week. The Gemini Moon ruled by a retrograde Mercury is sure to make progressing efficiently a little bit more complicated. Change of plans or last minute cancelation are possible, and it could be difficult to know exactly where things are heading making decisions all the more difficult. Venus in Aries squares Saturn in Capricorn on Tuesday confirming once again that we have to contend with some roadblocks or delayed gratification. Venus square Saturn could feel isolating, and lacking in support but don’t let this reality fool. It’s a necessary contraction that forces you to find original solutions, and it gets better as the week progresses.
The Moon enters Cancer late Tuesday evening and Mercury retrogrades back into Aquarius early Wednesday morning for a costume change. Mercury is now retracing steps from early February. Don’t be surprised if you have to deal with an echo of something initiated a month ago. Mercury in Aquarius sextile Venus in Aries Wednesday afternoon carrying solutions or at least ideas on how to move forward. Finally, Venus enters Taurus Wednesday night at 22:07 EDT where she will frolic until April 3rd. Venus is considered at home in the sign of Taurus. Her transit here should give a boost to all pleasurable things.
The Moon in Cancer opposes the stellium of planets in Capricorn on Thursday March 5th. We could spend the day revising plans concerned with the familiar and the safe while trying to branch out. We could be prompt to step out of our comfort zone if we are to continue on an ambitious path. Pragmatism will be favoured but don’t let your decisions be made out of fear. The day could feel somewhat polarizing but we are dealing with repeating themes and we should start getting the hang of this. Sometimes wisdom doesn’t look like it should.
The Moon enters Leo early Friday morning igniting passions as she squares Uranus and Venus in Taurus. The status quo won’t cut it this time. You might want to try to include some exciting activities into your weekend as the boredom threshold will be extremely low. Venus in Taurus is applying to a conjunction with Uranus and the Sun in Pisces to a conjunction with Neptune both exact on Sunday but this will permeate the whole weekend. The Moon enters Virgo in the early hours Sunday morning ending the week with another Mercury retrograde ruled Moon.
There is febrility in the air on March 7th and 8th. On a mundane level Neptune is often associated with sensitivity and toxicity. The Sun joining Neptune on Sunday morning foretells that the coronavirus could create a lot more anxiety and uncertainty in the collective. Something intangible and invisible is seeping through the masses and is very hard to contain. The Full Moon in Virgo will oppose the Sun/Neptune in Pisces on Monday March 9th saturating the skies with a polarizing tension. (More on this next Monday). On a personal level, the Sun joining Neptune on Sunday could be linked with a desire for transcendence or union. Something could feel really inspiring or at it’s worst ominous. Neptune is spiritual communion as much as it is drowning. It is revelations or delusions. Choose your own adventure.
Later on Sunday afternoon, Venus joins Uranus in Taurus for a quick rodeo giving the day a definite unpredictable flavour. Even though Taurus is a sign associated with stability and grounding, we could be looking for new soils in which to root down. A strong desire for sensuality, and experiences that stimulate our senses could permeate the weekend and the beginning of next week. This is an uncompromising signature when impulse control is at an all time low. Expect the unexpected and enjoy the ride.
“And then, some morning in the second week, the mind wakes, comes to life again. Not in a city sense—no—but beach-wise. It begins to drift, to play, to turn over in gentle careless rolls like those lazy waves on the beach. One never knows what chance treasures these easy unconscious rollers may toss up, on the smooth white sand of the conscious mind; what perfectly rounded stone, what rare shell from the ocean floor. Perhaps a channeled whelk, a moon shell, or even an argonaut.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh
