Energy & Astrology Update for March 2019
Are y'all feeling anxious (yes, I'm southern and I throw around a lot of y'alls)? Let me tell you why. We have a really big week and month of March astrologically. There is a lot happening in the cosmos and it's all having a major impact on us. This week we have Mercury going retrograde in the final degree of Pisces, Uranus moving into Taurus, and the Sun and Moon conjunct in Pisces (AKA a New Moon) all within the next 48 hours. Buckle your seat belts friends, and let me enlighten you about this ride.
Mercury retrograde kicks off under a Sun Neptune conjunction and will be in effect from March 4 - March 28. This is the first Mercury retrograde of 2019, coinciding with Uranus moving into Taurus (within hours of each other), and because it is occurring in the last degree of Pisces, it might not be what we expect. This is the final stage before moving into a new cycle, and this is a big one, guys and girls. Things may feel a little intense right now. Please understand that trying to control anyone or anything at this time is a futile pursuit. This is not a time to be thinking or working with anything that requires a great deal of detail. This is a very dreamy period, and this energy is good for creativity, spiritual work, and trusting your intuition.
The energies are really encouraging us to look at the bigger picture. Pay attention to your dreams and the signs and symbols that are coming into your experience this month. You may find yourself staring off into the distance or having conversations that drift into strange territory. Our memories will be less dependable than usual during most of March. You are also likely to be highly sensitive to the energy around you, so be mindful with who you chose to surround yourself with, because you'll be picking up on the energy, thoughts and feelings of other people which can be a little unsettling if you don't know this is happening. For those who are already sensitive to energy, please take the appropriate precautions during this time. We're very much like psychic sponges this month.
There's a lot of hype about Mercury retrograde being scary, but please understand that what it really is is an invitation to slow down, reflect, get inspired and let your intuition lead the way. There is a time for logic and there is a time for intuitive inspiration, this is the latter. The invitation is to reflect on your life before pressing forward again in April. Think of a retrograde as a forced break and time out for reflection from the cosmos and the universe for your highest good.
Mercury rules the way we think and communicate, and when it goes retrograde this can bring problems and misunderstandings with communication and transportation. There can also be a lot of glitches and upsets with technology. It is not advised to purchase new technology during this time. It's also a good idea to avoid signing any contracts, otherwise there will likely be a need for renegotiation at a later date. Double check any travel arrangements and ensure you are extra clear in any communications at work or home. I'd also like to note that it is a classic Mercury retrograde experience for people from the past to come out of the woodwork and this includes exes, so keep that in mind. If you have any planets in mutable signs - Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces - you may also be particularly gullible at this time. This is very much a smoke-and-mirrors type of energy.
Uranus, the planet of the unexpected is changing signs from Aries into Taurus. Other than a brief stop there last May, Uranus hasn't been in Taurus for 84 years. Uranus will be in Taurus until April 2026. Uranus in Taurus will be shaking up our ideas of money, property, and values and will be transforming our beliefs around these things. This energy will bring quick changes and upsets in the economic, political and religious climates. For some perspective, the last time Uranus was in Taurus we were in the midst of the Great Depression and World War II.
We also have Mars in Taurus, and there's a lot that will be shaken up with this energy. This is about self worth and how we value ourselves. Because we have the heavy hitters, Pluto and Saturn, in Capricorn, which is a friendly energy to Taurus, we have some grounding energy in thinking about our goals for the future. However, Uranus here is saying think of this in a different way. Right now it's about putting one foot in front of the other, and with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn the idea is slow and steady wins the race.
With all of this incredibly intense energy saturating the Earth this week, you could feel like you're having an outer body experience and that's because on some level you are. This New Moon in Pisces on March 6th in a conjunction with Neptune is your new beginning in a transcended state of consciousness. The higher purpose for all of this is to wake us up to the remembrance that we are eternal beings having a human experience and to illuminate higher values. You will likely feel very ungrounded during this time, and that's to be expected. Release all expectations and allow yourself to be guided by your intuition. This Neptunian energy is all about riding the waves, not trying to control them.
At this time many people will feel like their lives are just beginning as they are just now stepping into their purpose. Be prepared for the fact that some things may fall apart quickly to pave the way for the big changes and energetic shifts that are upon us. Please remember that endings and beginnings are intimately intertwined, and in order for your new life to burst forth, the old life must be dismantled and transmuted first. It's really important to take care of yourself and others at this time while all of this is unfolding. Take a deep breath, make your meditations a priority, spend time in nature, channel this energy into creative pursuits, spend time in reflection, and let your intuition lead the way. You've got this.
Because there is so much going on in March, I will likely do a second post later this month that will be focused on the Full Moon in Libra on March 20th.
