“The Portuguese call it saudade: a longing for something so indefinite as to be indefinable.
Love affairs, miseries of life, the way things were, people already dead, those who left and the ocean that tossed them on the shores of a different land
all things born of the soul that can only be felt.” ― Anthony De Sa
We are moving through changing tides and this week continues to bring revelations and dreams that fertilizes our future.
The Moon is moving towards her first quarter square and we can feel the building momentum of this highly mutable season. Moving through the end of the zodiac, we take stock of our lives, we dream, we fantasize and we hope as the winds of change are blowing.
Can you feel the stirring under your feet, under the Earth? Can you feel the butterflies awakening a sharp longing within you? Like you have been summoned by an invisible force to push beyond your comfort zone and reach for the sublime. Senses are magnified and the sap that runs through your veins is rushing to awaken you. Possessed by a new vision that will revitalize your spirit, can you hear the distant calling of possibilities?
Uranus is now officially in Taurus until 2025, signalling a totally new awareness being birthed.
For the next few weeks, Mercury retrograde in Pisces is creating a sort of timeless space that allows us to sit with our new awareness and even maybe, perceive a glimpse of what is to come. Perhaps, this is an unusual way to look at things for some of you, but the month of March can be very fruitful if you are willing to sit with the new emotions that are arising as they are indicators of things to come.
Mercury retrograde in Pisces can also generate confusion or distort what is in front of you, creating fantasy that would not sustain a long exposure to daylight. Dreams are lingering throughout the day and things could feel unclear or even scattered if you are not use to taking detours. The time for stoic commitments and pragmatism will come soon enough. Take advantage of this next week to bask in the romantic glow of your longings, allow yourself to get lost along the way.
Find inspiration in your day-dreaming as this is where the fire is burning right now, but remember that in the end you will need to discriminate between what was mere fantasy and what was vision.
The biggest event this week happens Thursday night at 21:48 EST with Mercury entering the heart of the Sun. Sitting on the Solar throne, Mercury Cazimi offers revelations and clarity. The Cazimi lasts about 2.5 hours either side of the hour and represent the halfway point in Mercury’s retrograde cycle. Since Mercury squares Jupiter at the time of the Cazimi, the revelations and incoming messages might have something to do with fate and the bigger patterns in your life. This small window can offer solution, answers, revelations and incoming messages that can help you especially in matters of the House where Jupiter rules in your chart.
We are moving through deep and important times right now.
Some things have become too heavy to bear. Sacrifices are taking on a whole new meaning. The burdens we have chosen in the past might not be right for us anymore; freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose.
