Uranus enters Taurus
Having briefly flirted with this sign from May – November of 2018, Uranus is finally ready to commit to Taurus. The planet of upheaval in the most solid of earth signs is a situation we’ll spend 7 years understanding personally and collectively. In Taurus until 2026, Uranus will ask us to re-invent the area of our life and chart that contains Taurus. For a full rundown of what that means for you, please take a look at the Uranus in Taurus horoscopes from last May.
8:04 AM PT – New Moon at 15° Pisces
The sorrow we sit with may have no solution. The loss that we have lived through may have no bow, no wrap, no box to be placed in. The most unimaginable events of our lives come without answers. They ask to be witnessed but offer no promise of spectacular resolve, just a quiet deepening of our relationship with ourself over time. Sometimes with the most painful of processes there is only a steady learning of how to be with it, refusing to leave yourself because of it.
Those things untenable that have happened to us, happened. This we must accept. Their meanings have to be detangled from our sense of self and worth, but the imprint they have made upon us is unchangeable. Their impact undeniable. The act of acknowledging them is a gateway to a new relationship with what pains us, a gateway that hopefully leads to blessings greater than the harm done to us.
Without acknowledgement, the burdens we bear pull from our every resource. Taxing our systems. Distorting our drive. Veering us in directions that have less to do with our natural inclination and more to do with our desire to make a wrong right. A noble pursuit, but until we have done the work of acknowledging, unpacking, and interrupting our wounds from festering, there is little right to be wrought. The journey that healing requires demands we develop a determined desire to reflect on the events of our life and to understand the ways in which they have shaped us. Not to change what happened, but in order to make sure we don’t perpetuate more of the same.
In a world that loves to commodify our struggle, sell solutions, mass market rags to riches, and televise our triumphs, we are often left yearning for something more than the instagramable moments of our lives. We need containers that will hold us through the senseless cruelty we have, and do, face. We have every right to want it all to make sense, to contextualize our suffering, but if that is our only end game we miss a million moments of meaning along the way.
The new moon in Pisces occurs on March 6th at 8:04 AM PT. Conjunct Neptune, planet of illusions, delusions, ideals, deceptions, and compassionate connection, this new moon highlights the areas of life we’ve been in denial about. Happening on the heals of Mercury’s station retrograde (Mercury is retrograde from March 5th through March 28th), and within a degree of where Mercury will station direct, this new moon reflects back to us more than one feeling, need for healing, or personal pattern.
The beginning of Mercury’s retrograde always signifies an issue that we’ll come back to, but because this new moon occurs at the same place in the sky as Mercury’s station direct (meaning Mercury will travel all the way back to this point), and is conjunct Neptune (as Mercury will be when it stations direct), it is a significant signature to consider.
Systemic oppression relies on cognitive dissonance. For many, the caustic mix of too much power and close to no need to be accountable for our actions, means havoc is wreaked. Our very human idols are far from infallible and, at this point especially, it is beyond irresponsible of us to think otherwise.
What used to be swept under the rug, culturally, communally, and globally is finding ways to rise to the surface. Pisces is a sign that slips out of the cracks and crevices. The smallest of inches given are flooded by its waters. We can’t put the tea back in the cup once spilled, nor should we want to. There is too much to cleanse. Too many dank crevices to wash out. Too many cries stifled that need to be received.
This new moon and Mercury retrograde cycle spills.
It will be, at times, unmanageable, unruly, and uncooperative, but that is what life should be like when it’s lived honestly. One admission of harm sparks the memories of a million more. It’s not supposed to be an experience one can fold up like socks and neatly organize in a basket.
These next few weeks put us in line with exactly what we need for the next layer of our healing. Sextile Mars and Saturn, the new moon itself sets us out on our healing journey feeling supported. And after the new moon, the astrology is filled with many little blessings that add up to something substantial if we can parse out the reality from the fantasy, and our expectations for how we should heal with how we need to right now.
Sun in Pisces sextile Saturn in Capricorn, both at 18°
Today’s astrology encourages us to put our best efforts forth. Saturn helps us to build confidence through small, steady steps towards success. Keep going, even when the path leads you two steps forward and many back.
Mars in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces, both at 16°
The warrior and the dreamer team up to bring us themes of inspired action. This astrology reminds us that when we move towards what we believe in, it moves towards us too.
Sun in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn, both at 22°
Today’s astrology brings us to deep places with greater ease than normal. Access to riches open up when we risk being honest.
Sun in Pisces square Jupiter in Sagittarius, both at 23°
Always uplifting, usually overzealous, the sun square Jupiter can help us feel renewed, if not a little unrealistic about our abilities. Careful not to overextend yourself, your calendar, and your expectations.
Mars in Taurus trine Saturn in Capricorn, both at 18°
Today wants to win. With Mars and Saturn in positive alignment, little can stop them. Use this astrology to call up your determination to get the job done, whatever that may be.
Mercury Rx makes its inferior conjunction to the sun at 24° Pisces
It’s up to each one of us to clean up the messes we’ve made and to honor the process of doing so. It’s the way we stay humble and hydrated. It’s the way we stop ourselves from thinking we are above, beyond, or too good to for the realities of life. It’s the way that we get to the truth.
Today marks and important point in Mercury’s retrograde cycle. As Mercury makes its inferior conjunction to the sun, it helps us get to the heart of a matter. Here, Mercury gets a solar infusion that helps it regain some of the strength it lost along the first half of its retrograde. Pay close attention to the messes you realize are yours to tend to, the messages you receive, and the inspiration that comes when you stay tuned into your inner process.
Mercury Rx in Pisces square Jupiter in Sagittarius, both at 23°
Here sentiments are expressed with great inspiration and possibly exaggeration. These aren’t skies to convey hard truths under, but they will wax poetic till the cows come home. Be wary of false prophets and open to inspiration at the same time.
Mercury Rx in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn, both at 22°
Whatever Mercury is helping you review leads you to a deeper understanding of it. This astrology asks us to excavate quite a bit, but it isn’t without ample reward. The less afraid you are of what it is you’ll find, the more you’ll be able to do with what you dig up. All information at this point is important, but it isn’t the whole story. Stay tuned in to what is going on underneath the surface of your situation as that is where the real value of your story lies.
Mercury Rx in Pisces sextile Mars in Taurus, both at 21°
Here The Messenger feels emboldened by the Warrior and encouraged to seek the truth of the situation. The information that has been excavated may be empowering and encouraging you to take action in ways that feel healing for having done so.
