We have all been wading in Neptune’s waters, and the last few weeks have been highly emotional. Mercury, the cosmic messenger, finally left the sign of Aquarius where he had been on tour since January 8th, 2021. Mercury entered the mutable water sign of Pisces on March 15th, where he will be until April 3rd, 2021.
Mercury in Pisces is highly sensitive and deeply intuitive. Last week at this time, there were four planets transiting in Pisces: The sun, which is your vitality and ego strength; Venus, the planet of money and relationships; Mercury, the planet of communication; and Neptune, the planet of dreams. My friend says that creative people live in their heads. Imagine how many of us were swimming inside last week!
Mercury and Neptune are stilling transiting in Pisces, and it is critical to trust your intuition and follow your dreams. Take a page from that brilliant and wacky scientist known as Albert Einstein, who also happened to be a Pisces with Mercury in Pisces. Neptune is the ruler of the sign of Pisces. It rules dreams, emotions, intuition, old memories, and the unconscious mind.
Einstein’s theory of relativity came to him in a dream about cows surrounded by an an electrical fence. He was talking to a famer in the dream about the cows and realized that he and the farmer saw something different. He woke up and realized that the same event can vary in perspective. In later years, he would become that fun guest that everyone loves at parties. When people would ask how he was, he would simply reply, “You know — it’s all relative.”
Remember that Neptune can fog our vision and perception. I think Einstein was clued into that concept, and each of should heed that right now. Mercury transits in the mutable water sign of Pisces until April 3rd, and this is an opportune time for working with your intuition. Journal your dreams and do manifesting work.
We also experienced the Spring Equinox, which occurred on March 20, 2020 at 5:37 am EDT. The Equinox chart shows so much potential for all of us to expand, explore our dreams, and commune with the goal of infinite possibility. I cast the chart for Washington D.C., and the Ascendant has Aquarius rising, which is ruled by the planets Uranus and Saturn. Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, and it it rules inventiveness, technology, science, medicine, networking, social media, the internet, chaos, and mayhem. Saturn is the ancient ruler, and it represents structures in our lives.
Jupiter, the luckiest planet is just one degree from the Chart’s Ascendant, and it provides protection, expansion, abundance, and good fortune. Jupiter in Aquarius allows each of us to connect to so many different ways to learn, meet people, invent and reinvent. It can also expand our anxiety, but we are in a new world we must embrace.
Venus was still in Pisces at the time of the Equinox. It was at a difficult degree of endings and also on the degree of the fixed star known as Scheat, which is a degree of misfortune. The goal is to come together to heal so many that are wounded, and this is not something any of us can achieve overnight. Venus is also conjunct the sun, which represents beauty, love, compassion, and kindness! This gives so much hope. Please don’t lose hope.
Venus, the benefic of love, entered the fixed cardinal sign of Aries on March 21st, where she will play until April 14, 2021. Venus in Aries is in its detriment, as it rules the opposite sign of Libra. Venus in Aries is always up for the party, outgoing, and a bit aggressive. However, we need Cardinal fire to get us all of this Neptunian swamp of emotions. Now, we’ve got the Sun and Venus in Aries to give us some courage and drive!
There is a very special date on March 26, 2021! There is a Venus Sun Starpoint that occurs at 2:58 am EDT at 5 degrees and 50 minutes of the Cardinal Fire sign of Aries. This is a new eight year cycle of setting intentions of what makes your heart happy and gives you joy.
On the same day, Mars meets up with the North Node of Destiny at 13 degrees of Gemini. This can trigger very fated events. It can bring you to action in a flash — especially with Venus and the Sun meeting up in a Cardinal fire sign on the very same day! This is excellent for initiating new beginnings. Pay attention to the stories in your life, the people whom you meet, and the opportunities that arise. Keep manifesting the dream and follow your own unique intuition because it’s all relative!
