Today, Mars in Scorpio is applying to a trine with Neptune in Pisces and this will be felt into next week. Mars in Scorpio tends to unearth what is hidden. Secrets are exposed, a light is cast on shadows and we have access to our buried desires and unconscious motivations.
Mars in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces is a doorway, a threshold into other means of understanding. Intuition runs high and we have access to the shadows that dances behind the veil of our everyday awareness. Pattern emerges and synchronicities unfold.
The Sun will be leaving the sign of Libra and entering the baptismal waters of Scorpio this afternoon. Meanwhile, the Moon is in early Pisces doubling the water signature.
In astrology, the water element symbolises deep emotions and the realm of intuition. The water signs are known for their sensitive disposition. Being in tune with the deeper dimensions of life also means picking up the subtleties and nuances that many others don’t notice. And with that knowledge, comes vulnerability. There is a secretive quality to the water signs and most have deep emotional undercurrents that are not visible. The need to protect themselves is very strong. The feeling responses can go from compulsive passions to overwhelming sadness.
Pay attention to your dreams. The power of the unconscious mind is like water.
It is all available to you. Aries is considered the first sign of the Zodiac. It is associated with Spring, Growth, Individuality, the Ego, the planet Mars which means that Aries is more intuitive and instinctual than intellectual.
The Ram also symbolizes the courage and boldness to follow ones creative urges.
While Jupiter will be moving forward in the fire sign of Leo, the Sun will also be at 19 degrees of Aries, in the exact degree of its exaltation. There are 360 degrees in the Zodiac and each degree holds a unique meaning or message to add layer to our interpretation.
An exaltation means that the planet is comfortable and finds easy expression. The Sun (ruler of Leo) represents vitality, spirit and individuality and therefore when traveling through Aries will be most comfortable finding motivation, courage and determination.
So if you have been holding off to get started on a creative idea you might get the celestial kick needed. There are potent firery energies available.
Here is the Sabian Symbol interpretation of the 19º of Aries from Dane Rhudyar:
”THE “MAGIC CARPET” OF ORIENTAL IMAGERY”
KEYNOTE: The use of creative imagination.
”A way of life refusing a hectic involvement in social competition and waste-producing overproduction allows for the development of unattached and transcendent understanding. The static floor (carpet) on which man’s feet (symbols of understanding) rest can become transformed into the means for great flights of imagination and super-physical perception. The period of rest from outwardly directed activity bound to collective normality presents the creative mind with the possibility of surveying in dreams the totality of the present-day social situation, thus “to see whole.”
With Mercury in Pisces at the moment, some of the answers you are looking for might come to you in dreams.
Pay special attention to the symbols dancing around behind the curtains at night. Missing puzzle pieces or burried images resurfacing to help you conclude old stories are best understood intuitively. Don’t bother passing it through the mechanical wheels of the left brain. Just feel the images pass through you, like you would with music.
