This week we're finally beginning to come off of the crazy energy of the past couple of weeks. The intensity is dying down and the fog is beginning to clear as we move into some positive and harmonious connections between the Sun, Mercury and Pluto early this week. We also have Mars, the planet of action and willpower, moving out of warrior Aries and away from it's intense connection to Uranus/Eris as it transitions into the more comfortable and down-to-earth sign of Taurus on Thursday.
Monday (3/6): Mercury in Pisces comes into conjunction with the Sun today combining our intelligent, rational minds with the physical energy and power of the Sun. Mercury has a difficult time in Pisces as Mercury’s sign placement determines our decision-making and communication style. Mercury in Pisces becomes far less rational and much more intuitive, emotional, visual and spiritual. This is why Mercury in Pisces natives tend toward thinking in images, feelings and impressions which often causes them difficulty in communicating their ideas to others.
Teaming up with the Sun today, Mercury take center-stage enhancing our thoughts, communication, and decision-making abilities. Our minds may become much more sharp and efficient today, making this an excellent time for organizing and making plans as well as taking care of important communications we may have been putting off. Many of us will feel busier than normal with lots of emails, phone, calls and errands to catch up on. For some, this can be a time when thoughts are racing and we can feel overwhelmed with all there is to do. If this is the case, simply take some time out to organize your thoughts and plan ahead. Journaling, writing, and brainstorming are all favored under this transit.
Tuesday (3/7): Mercury in Pisces makes a supportive sextile over to Pluto in Capricorn today, bringing about a greater depth and intensity to our thoughts and communications. When Mercury and Pluto team up, our minds become laser sharp and focused on uncovering all that needs to be revealed. This is an excellent time for psychological exploration and all types of research. Now is a time when we can penetrate the surface layer of what’s being presented to us in order to get to the Truth at its core. This transit is further emphasized and enhanced by the Sun’s conjunction to Mercury, helping to clear away the fog and shed light on the deeper meaning hidden below the surface of our communications and experiences.
Wednesday (3/8): The Sun in Pisces comes into sextile with Pluto in Capricorn, allowing us a better understanding of power dynamics influencing our ability to attain the success we desire. Under this influence, we are supported in making important change and transformation required of us in order to take back our power. Now is also a time when the deeper significance of important situations playing out in our lives can become more apparent to us, as Pluto’s influence allows us to dive deep below the surface to get to the real Truth.
Thursday (3/9): Mars moves into Taurus today, helping us to feel more grounded in our actions. With Mars in Taurus, our need for comfort and stability is what motivates us to act. This is an excellent time to maintain the drive to continue moving forward with actions that were initiated while Mars was in Aries. This is also a time when we may feel more driven by the pursuit of material wealth and comfort, as opposed to our own passions and self-interest. Paired with the energy of the Venus retrograde in Aries, this could be a time when impulsive spending can cause difficulties in the long-term. This is also a time when we may become lazy and resist taking necessary action in order to maintain the status quo. One of the main benefits of this transit is that projects initiated at this time will be carried out in the long-term under the fixed energy of Taurus.
