New moon, March 27, 2017 10:57 PM EDT
As our golden orb heralds the dawn rising earlier in the northern hemisphere now, we leave behind the dark vestiges of a deep and troubling winter for many. The world stage seems far from peaceful and as rancorous as I can recall in my adult life.
The sun and moon, will ‘occult’ one another for their monthly conjunctivo at 7* of Aries the Ram.
Here in the first decanate of Aries they ram up to move spring forward in the wearing of the green.
Venus/Aphrodite has just flown by as she is Retrograde at 3* Aries and is pushing back into a square with Saturn/EL now at 27* Sagittarius, which is bang on the Galactic Center, opening the vault of the heavens, infusing our world with a potency that sizzles and crackles in the ethers, waiting to be harnessed or annihilate the unwitting whose path this live wire happens upon. (In this case, it is in your own personal chart and on the world stage, as we see the powerful games being lobbed back and forth.)
With Venus Retrograde, she can either bring back what was meant to be yours, or move the carrot just
out of reach, depending on your circumstances. Venus rules what we have, possessions and what we value. In Aries, she is randy and can be reckless, but retrograde can reign in your resources, or may bring investment opportunities that have come along before. Either way, you may find yourself questioning who you love and why, what you value or how you invest.
I would like to tell you that our markets and economy should move along swimmingly, and HOPEFULLY they will, after all, who wants a crashing stock market?
Now, she asks us if we have invested in what we love or to put that another way, do we love our investments?
I liken the stock market to gambling in Vegas, because you have no control over what is being done with your investment, or the outcome, unless you are a major shareholder and have some small say at a stock meeting.
Mercury will Station Retrograde at 4* of Taurus on April 9th. And almost a week later on April 15th, Venus will station direct at 26* of PIsces, which she will enter on April 4th. So, adding this into the equation, we must consider that Taurus is ruled by Venus and we are right back into the 2nd house of VALUES, EARNING A BASIC LIVING/WORK AND POSSESSIONS.
For some reason, the universe just doesn’t think we would be moving in the right direction and wants to remind us of who we are.
In this sense, it is as though we are being continuously made to repeat a grade, until we actually are ready to graduate.
Make sure you are taking the steps you can, to ground and center. Do NOT let anxiousness keep you from getting a minimum of 7 hours sleep during this most challenging time for many on the planet.
Pluto is still the handle at 19* Capricorn, on the T-square to Uranus at 23* Aries conjunct Mercury/Hermes at 25* Aries, in opposition to Jupiter Rx at 19* Libra.
We have a whole herd of stallions all reigned in, waiting for us to allow them to gallop down the track, but the gate seems to keep shutting!
Oh, are they getting restless!
