We are building up to the first eclipse of the season that happens on March 8 or 9 (depending where you are) @ 19 degrees of Pisces.
If you live in North America, you won’t be able to see this eclipse.
Does it mean you won’t be able to feel it?
A Solar eclipse is a significant marker. If you have personal planets (Sun, Moon) or if your Ascendant is in any of the mutable signs (Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, Pisces) and especially between 14 and 24 degrees this particular Solar eclipse could indicate the closure and/or the beginning of something new influencing the next several months. A Solar Eclipse is like a very special New Moon containing a potent seed.
Flexibility is your best asset right now as things can change very quickly. There is no need to jump to any conclusion since there could be more changes before March is over. One of the reasons for this is the many planets currently transiting through mutable signs.
Mutable signs in astrology are associated with the transitional phases between seasons. Gemini represents the transition from spring to summer, Virgo from summer to fall, Sagittarius from fall to winter and Pisces from winter to spring. These signs are also associated with flexibility, changeability and adaptability.
The down side of mutability is a tendency to get scattered in all directions.
It is important to stay realistic about what we can get done right now since we might end up not finishing what we start. There is a possibility of getting overwhelmed by all the responsibilities down the road. Keeping it simple is your best bet!
Venus enters Scorpio the sign of her detriment just in time for some potentially difficult planetary weather. The Moon will be in Libra all weekend ruled by Venus in Scorpio. Mars @ 14º Libra will perfect a square to Pluto in Capricorn on Sunday while being in mutual reception with Venus in Scorpio.
*It’s interesting to note that Mars is the traditional ruler of Scorpio while Pluto is the modern ruler. They will square each other while co-ruling Venus. A square or 90º angle between planets is associated with tension that stimulate action.
Putting the technical lingo aside, the next few days promises to be anything but calm. Unstable relationships or anything that was put on the back burner especially in regards to partnership could be where the action takes place. The diplomatic effort could very well crumble if the desire for power and assertion is not seriously kept in check. This can happen on the world stage as much as in our personal lives.
At its best, these planetary alignments can bring to the surface information that remained in the shadows until now. There could be a pressing need to transform a stagnating scenario or get to the heart of the matter with someone. Both the Moon in Libra and Venus in Scorpio want to relate. Venus being the intelligent use of charm, she helps us refine and bring harmony to the rough and crude aspects of ourselves. When Venus spends time in Scorpio, the hunger to fulfill our needs can take precedence over peace and harmony. We could be throwing out the more superficial approach when interacting with others in favor of satisfying a need for closeness, fusion and truth.
Of course, when we try to push our agenda on others forcefully, we almost always meet resistance. It might be difficult to see the manipulative tactics we or other employ since the sign of Scorpio rules unconscious urges and desires.
If anything, remember to keep it cool in the next few days. Sunday December 6th will be the exact square of Mars and Pluto but we could see its repercussion well into the week. This is a brief but intense period and flexibility will be your best asset. Keep in mind that further analysis of your birth chart and where these planets are transiting will determine where the action is taking place in your life.
