Mercury just went direct Feb 28. Wasn’t so bad this time. When Mercury is in its own element of Air like it was this time in Aquarius, I find them easier. Do you notice this?
MARCH STARTS with a PLANETARY RECALL on a NEW MOON in PISCES. BIG BACKLASH.
One step forwards and two steps behind.
MARCH NEW MOON starts out with a Bang of a whimper. TWO PLANETS MOVE RETROGRADE. Mars & SATURN.
Mars rules sex and Saturn is in Mars’ ruled Scorpio now. Saturn rules CAPRICORN.
The two BAD BOYS of the ZODIAC- get recalled. For one thing your sex life needs to be overhauled and reviewed. What does this mean?
MARS planet of COHONES, macho, war, energy, passion goes RETROGRADE March 1- MAY 19.
ARIES SCORPIO and CAPRICORNS will feel this pull back the most.
The ACTION PLANET moveing Retro for the next 11 weeks will slow your impulses, pulses and everything right down.
The economy, money, power simmers down. Mars turns Retrograde at 27 degrees + LIBRA. Mars ends his Retro at 9 degrees o1 of LIBRA.
CHECK THIS area off on your chart to see where and in which house/houses the weakening of the drive affects you at. It will feel different in the 1st than in the 12th house. MARS is spending 7 months in LIBRA instead of its usual six weeks in a sign this year.
Mars only retrogrades once very 26 months so it is a very KARMIC time. We are needing to REBALANCE MASCULINE ENERGY for men and women.
MEN need to change their macho ways of seeing women. This runs rampant through PATRIARCHAL culture. Women parading naked in Blurred Lines, Miley Cyrus overtly sexual displays, these are all PATRIARCHAL demands of women as objects. Sorry ladies if you think this is women’s liberation and freedom it is not. Women cannot display themselves this way in this culture of masculine domination. Yes they could in an ideally Feminine valued culture. It might look similar but men would honor, cherish, serve and respect women totally for that to happen. Women would have equal rights in every way and more so as bearers of children. They would be exalted, highly valued and never raped. They would hold worldly positions of power and be respected and be as free as men in the world. They would be valued as life givers, bringers of feminine values, fairness, caring, cherishing children and all life on earth as Feminine Goddesses. So that’s what I feel this MArs in LIBRA initiation is all about. This is how relationships were in the Goddess worshipping ages, how people lived in the ancient Crete, in the Malta, in Aboriginal societies, in ancient Sumeria.
SEX REST and REHAB TIME
First and foremost MARS rules sex. Take a break. It’s an ancient Chinese energy warrior practice to hold back from having orgasms to conserve the precious life energy. Mantak Chia practiced this form of energy meditation for many years. Tantric sexuality uses this practice as well. Ideally it would be time to go cold turkey, I don’t mean having sex with frozen turkeys- to be celibate and align with this energy.
It’s a time of rest and renewal. And to REVIEW of all your RELATIONSHIPS, social scene, arts, luxury, where we spend our energy, what are we truly passionate about. Only if you step back and REflect can you see what the patterns are.
LADIES womb cleansing and sexual virgin renewal time.
EVERY SEXUAL act you have ever had needs to be recapitulated ladies. I will write about this separately and present a course. This will be by phone and a private FB group and more.
If you have planets birthdays near these dates- JUSTIN BIEBER comes to mind, then watch out for the backslide. backlash.
MARS rules WAR and in LIBRA it is PEACE NEGOTIATIONS
We will be revisiting old peace talks, hot spots, sexual equality, including gays, transgender etc.
Yes Mars Retrograde is literally banging your head against the wall.
MARS & SATURN in SCORPIO rules masochism and S & M. So that kind of sexual punishment and degradation of women like 50 shades of grey will be hotly debated. It is not healthy.
Mars rules the military, so cutting of funding which has just been announced. Mars is cutting, brain salad surgery and sexual operations. Marrs rules the head. BIG HEADACHE TIME.
MARS rules the Aries countries of ENGLAND GERMANY PALESTINE ISRAEL SYRIA and LITHUANIA and POLAND and such cities of Florence Naples Marseilles. So they will be pulling back.
Mars rules the SCORPIO countries of FINLAND, NORWAY, MOROCCO, QUEENSLAND, KOREA, SYRIA, the TRANSVAAL, and cities of Baltimore, Cincinnati, New Orleans, Liverpool and Washington D.C.
Mars rules firemen, and they must be overly careful at this time. Also dangerous explosives, sharp equipment.
I would not schedule surgery during a Mars Retrograde. I would not buy anything new if it can be avoided. There will be problems with energy of all types but especially NUCLEAR EMERGY a SCORPIO item. FUKUSHIMA and radiation from there reaching U.S. shores comes to mind. Take iodine.
THE NEW MOON in PISCES
AWESOMELY BEAUTIFUL BOUNTIFUL SUN JUPITER TRINE which I wrote about previously
LOTS of water emphasis. NEPTUNE at 5 degrees PISCES is conjunct the SUN AND MOON and CHIRON.
It will be very easy to reach higher consciousness, will feel dreamy, FOGGY with a chance of delusion, and great healing.
A very introspective emotionally recharging time. PISCES is the 12th house, the house of BLISS, YOGA, meditation, forgiveness, endings. It is the LAST new MOON before SPRING of this bitterly hard winter in the Northern part of the world. So it’s definitely as shoring up time.
MARS AND SATURN changing direction on MARCH 2 will cause weather pattern reversals. Where formally you were rejected you will be accepted and vice- versa. It’s review review review time. FINISH up all old business. Expect old lovers to return, old issues that you thoughts you;d thoroughly dealt with. Can make you feel kinda schitzy.
The New moon features VENUS SQUARING MARS and the NORTH NODE
significant relationship turning points.
THE URANUS JUPITER Square is still in effect so things will be chaotic,in the home, with family, in new starts and directions.
SATURN RETROGRADE March 2 – July 20
SATURN RETROGRADE- look for which territory SATURN backslides through in your natal chart this is where you will need to look at unfinished KARMIC LESSONS.
SATURN in SCORPIO for the last 2 years is aligning with death, with letting go, with dying and being reborn. Saturn in Scorpio is deep intimacy with another, with your self. Saturn in Scorpio asks us to let go of old outworn ways of dealing with power, the shadow, the unconscious, shared resources.
Saturn in Scorpio has also brought the dire surgery for women with supposed genetic high risk to cervical cancer like Angelina Jolie to the fore and many thousands of women are opting for this cut out the maybe affected part now hysterectomy to avoid death by cancer later.
From 23 degrees SCORPIO- 16 + Scorpio. This is our usual 4 months Saturn back track.
Capricorns especially you who are being affected by the CARDINAL GRAND CROSSES – retreat for a few months and reset your grand goals.
ON MARCH 5 Venus moves out of her RETROGRADE SHADOW and into Aquarius.
MARCH 6 JUPITER STATIONS DIRECT at 10+ degrees CANCER ending a Retrograde which began November 6, 2013 at 20+ degrees Cancer. Jupiter will take till June 1st to pass its own shadow period.
