Sorry for the late article. This week has been crazy busy for me and I am just now able to finalize my draft. The Sun in Pisces with the Moon in Virgo pulls at our heartstrings, but with a touch of critique. We just want to help others find healthy balance, but, at what cost? We can add in the sextile to Saturn in Capricorn, and the conjunction with Neptune in Pisces to bring different perspectives to the mix. Are we really comprehending what we need to understand, or are we accidentally mixing up the message. Don't force it. We have time to sort through it. The choices we make can end up becoming the real lesson in the day. Don't be too impulsive.
Mercury and Venus in Pisces are forming their own conjunction, with a square to Mars in Sagittarius and a trine to Jupiter in Scorpio. Our opinions either get us in hot water, or help us to prove a point. Finding a way to diplomatically express ourselves is helpful. Otherwise, we may come across as being stuck in a bout of defiance. The sextile to Pluto in Capricorn could be a saving grace as we have the capacity to approach complex situations with different points of view.
Mars in Sagittarius is moving into a loose trine to Uranus in Aries. Suddenly, we may feel more determined and have the devotion to follow through on some of our original ideas.
Jupiter in Scorpio is forming a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. We can use this to help us dig deeper into mysteries that have eluded us in the past. Now is a great time to do some extensive research.
So, again, there are no retrograde planets. That's coming to an end on March 9 when Jupiter stations retrograde. This extended period without retrogrades has certainly felt different, since all the planets moving forward, at the same time, open the door for proactive, productive focus. Hopefully we found good ways to manifest positive change during the past two months of direct planetary motions.
Overall, the chart is likely to cause us to feel a bit introspective, but in a practical way. There are nine placements in feminine receptive signs. This helps us to carry more emotional weight without worrying how long we can withstand the pressure. We are more intuitive, and that also gives us strength. Where we might not feel so strong is in our thinking processes. There are no Air element placements in this chart. And even though the Moon is in Virgo, a sign ruled by Mercury, all the planetary weight is collected in Pisces, where clarity is not always available. We may feel more like we are just floating through this day. Tracking with the obvious and logical facts may not come quite as easily. There are six placements in Water elements and seven placements in Mutable qualities. Today is likely to be more conducive to creativity and ethereal beauty, but if we try to form our ideas into a concrete concept, we may feel as though it's a failure. Keep it basic, simple and incomplete, for now. Give it time to develop and grow into something more comfortable at a later date.
