Happy March! The fire and beauty of Spring arrives on Tuesday - earlier than the Equinox - when Venus (Goddess of Relationship, Values & Finance) and Mercury (God of Consciousness, Communication & Commerce) enter Aries. Our thoughts, communication, and romantic experiences will feel the transformative power of Aries fire. With Mercury and Venus in the sign of the Ram, we’ll have to engage with brave, direct communication, and behavioral momentum. We need to move forward in the direction of love from a place of confidence. We need to think, listen, and speak from worthiness. Balanced with a only a tiny bit of moderation, charging ahead in many endeavors throughout the next three and a half weeks will enrich our personal and love lives significantly.
Jupiter (God of Abundance, Optimism & Wisdom) starts its retrograde on Thursday March 8th. Since October 10th 2017, Jupiter’s tour in truth seeking and telling Scorpio has inspired a cultural reveal on issues surrounding sexuality, transformation, violence, etc. What it’s reminding us all is that - things aren’t getting worse, they’re getting exposed. Nothing is new under the sun. Especially racism, misogyny, and aristocracy. In order for the Universe’s alchemy to begin, low-level shit needs to be consciously considered. Or brought to the light of understanding.
Now that Jupiter will retrograde until July, we won't lose successful progress on the #MeToo, #TimesUp, sanctions on the NRA, etc. In every research process, there’s a moment where we collect the cumulative evidence from the investigation and embed the learning into current decision making. That’s Jupiter Retrograde. Review what you learned since last October and apply the wisdom vigilantly now to your values and behavior. More on where Jupiter Retrograde aspects your sign below. Not everything is moving behind! Don’t forget to turn the clocks forward an hour this Sunday when Daylight Savings Time begins.
