Becalmed - Mercury Direct
If you are prone to depression, like many of us are, this has been a very challenging week. Mercury has stationed direct but has done so in the vast sea of Neptune in Pisces, leaving us becalmed.
The word becalmed sounds almost idyllic. But despite the calm we are stranded. We are stuck and unless the favorable winds start to blow in our lives again we might just not be able to find a way out. We are trapped. We feel powerless. We wait for some divine intervention while we question our faith.
We see the storm in the distance. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn are staring each other down in what is going to be a face off of reckoning. Although the fight has not yet begun we can feel the tension in the air. We see that these two are engaged in such a deep seated battle that they will be unaware of the collateral damage they cause. And we humans, unfortunately, are the ones most likely to suffer the consequences.
Our most primal instincts are telling us to take cover from the storm and yet we are stuck, exposed, on open waters without the power to propel ourselves to a safe harbor.
If this is you, it’s okay to go into survival mode. Saturn stations at the end of April and between now and then he moves less than a degree so taking care of practical concerns, of the reality in which you are living, is where the emphasis is heading. Plus I find that if you take care of Saturn life eventually gets easier.
Whatever you do it’s important that you keep taking care of yourself when you are feeling down. Keep exercising. Keep meditating. Keep eating right. Keep making healthy choices.

Video Forecast: Venus in Pisces and Mercury Retrograde ends - Week of March 22, 2019
Here's the video forecast for the week ahead! You can always head over to our YouTube Channel and subscribe if you like what you see! Much love and patience, my friends.
On Wednesday, March 20th we have a lot going on. Let’s start with the first day of spring! The sun enters Aries which signals the vernal equinox. Oh yeah. It’s exciting! Spring has sprung!
Shortly after the sun enters the new sign of Aries we have a full moon in Libra that is incredibly powerful. Further adding to the tension of this full moon is that the sun is conjunct Chiron, the wounded healer. Let me describe it this way: The sun, your will, your motivation, is compromised by a wound that seems unable to be healed completely. Instead the vulnerability must be accepted and built upon in order to turn that weakness into a source of strength so that you, in turn, are able to help others rise out of the pain they carry with them everyday. But during the full moon we are especially sensitive to our own unique pain, making it a challenge to embody the healer instead of being the wounded one in this scenario. It takes all of Aries bravery, courage and ability to take risks to fight through this existential battle. And Aries is much more comfortable on an actual battlefield that in the existential realm. But look at it as an adventure, to be all you can be, in order to create wholeness where there was once separation.
We are all vulnerable in our own special ways (Chiron). We all look to others to see if we can find acceptance (Libra). But in the end it’s up to us ourselves, each and every one of us, to find acceptance for ourselves within our own hearts (Aries). Bravely be who you are, whoever that is. You are not defined by what other people say about you. You are not defined by your pain. You get to decide what defines you. And the full moon in Libra can remind you to show up for this world as yourself. If you truly accept who you are then others, your partners in this life, will be meet you where you are. And being face to face with someone, openly and honestly, is what partnership is all about.
Allow this full moon in Libra to help you realize that when you are open and vulnerable to others it helps to create a stronger partnership. Use your presence in a relationship to bring out your own inner wisdom. But don’t look for your partner to be the source of your healing. We all have to do the healing part of it for ourselves. Our partners can bear witness and bring loving support, but at the end of the day it’s up to us to do the healing work in each of our own lives.

With today’s new moon in Pisces there has never been a better time for rebirth. Ready to turn over a new leaf? Ready to envision a different future for yourself? The time is now, my friend, to utilize the gift we are all being given right now in order to harness this chance for redemption.
The point of power is always in the present moment. That is a powerful affirmation from the late great Louise Hay. And you know what? It’s true. The present moment, right now, today, has the new moon conjunct the planet Neptune invoking our imagination and our ability to manifest our desires from a spiritual center. And are you connected to your own spiritual center? If not that is a great place to start with this new moon.
As with all things Pisces and Neptune we must understand that the way forward isn’t linear. Especially with Mercury turning retrograde at 29 degree Pisces yesterday. Now is the time for instinct. For intuition. For spiritual guidance. For divine trust. Start by trusting yourself to create the life you truly desire by first and foremost being grateful for what you have right here right now, in the present moment.
What do you truly desire? Perhaps you need to go back, back in time, in order to remember and regain that which was once important to you but is now forgotten or cast to the wayside. Perhaps you need to go within, into meditation and contemplation, to reconnect with your heart center. Perhaps you need to revisit the goals you set for yourself just a few months ago at the beginning of 2019. Whatever direction your path takes you is okay. It’s more than okay. It’s the path to rebirth. Be who you were born to be. Be you. You are the only one who can do that.

We are all living on the edge of the world ... 😲🦖❤️
As we move into March and the weekend we have a lot of imminent changes. It’s likely you feel like you are teetering on the brink. Uranus, planet of sudden change, is beating his drum in the anaretic degree of Aries. The tension is building. The dam is about to burst. What’s getting ready to explode in your life?
It might be your relationships. Venus makes a square to Uranus early Friday morning. Look for shake ups in your love life or in your finances. Unexpected change? Or perhaps an unexpected bill is coming due? Sometimes the surprise is a welcome one, but not always. Be ready to respond quickly as Uranus in Aries doesn’t give you time to mull things over.
Later on Friday we have Venus moving into the sign of Aquarius. There is something idealistic about Aquarius, and it brings our relationships to a higher vibration. We now can act in our lives based on our principles instead of based on the world around us. Time to raise the bar. It starts with us. Take the high road and see who follows you. That’s your tribe.
Saturday and Sunday are pretty quiet but the pressure doesn’t let up as early next week we have a few choice things in store. First off, everyone’s favorite transit, Mercury retrograde, begins Tuesday, March 5th, at the 29th degree of Pisces, the last degree of the entire zodiac. If that’s not ominous and unusual for Mercury retrograde I don’t know what is. We are going to be feeling the slow down even before Mercury turns retrograde next week so be careful with communication and technology. And if you are traveling allow yourself a little extra time in case there are traffic slow downs or in case you get lost. I know you don’t think that’s going to happen but the energy is out there and the best thing to do is to be prepared.
On Wednesday, March 6th, we have a really big day coming up. We have not only the new moon in Pisces which happens conjunct nebulous Neptune; we also have Uranus moving into the sign of Taurus for good. Or at least until 2025 which is a long way off. We are moving out of our comfort zone and we just don’t know what the world will look like when the dust settles. More on the events of next week to come. In the meantime be brave and visualize your ideal life. Thoughts become things, after all.
