This new moon looked really good as the Sun and Moon join Jupiter in Pisces. Jupiter is the planet of abundance, the law, faith and hope. It rules both Pisces and Sagittarius and is exalted in the sign of Cancer.
Jupiter is a great benefic and known as Ganesha in Vedic Astrology, the remover of obstacles.
So what has gone wrong?
Vedic astrology shows that this mighty planet is weakened by being so close to the Sun. It’s called combustion. However the good news is that on Saturday 5th March Jupiter joins the Sun, and is then strengthened.
But the biggest problem is still with Mars, the God of War. Mars is now in Capricorn where it is exalted, so its really strong and organised. It joins Pluto at this New Moon along with Venus. Pluto is plutocracy, power and buried wealth. Venus rules money.
First I want to address the war in the Ukraine and salute the inspired leadership of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. He’s an Aquarian with the Moon in Leo-the heart of the lion. Born 25 Jan 1978. Putin’s chart is disputed with several times of birth used.
You have given me so much to think about, from discovering my rising sign at last to an introduction to Mayan astrology. It was a fantastic afternoon of discovery about myself and my roots and my potential. I am following up on the reading list (thank you so much for the suggestions – brilliant) and slowly coming to terms with my new persona. The sheer breadth of the reading was really eye opening, as I thought I knew a fair amount about astrology but you opened new pathways for me. So I would warmly recommend a reading with Pam; discovering so many unexpected links and connections has meant that many things are resonating and bells are still ringing!
Thank you so much! All the very best, Marie-Ann
Mercury in Aquarius
Mercury has passed its ‘shadow’ and is now in the air sign of Aquarius which is positive for communications.
Courage is needed to make changes.
Mars changed sign on 24th January, into a sign of its exaltation. That means it can give of its best. Mars in Capricorn is focused and has a plan of action. It’s organised and authoritative. Its the Commander in Chief of the army. This is the ideal time of year to write down your goals and set intentions. It moves into Aquarius on 6th March.
However Pluto is still moving slowly through Capricorn. With Venus joining Pluto again on March 3rd issues around love, power and money will be in the news once more.
Planets in Pisces
It’s represented in the tarot by The Hanged Man, the most spiritual card in the tarot
The Sun changed sign and moved into Pisces on February 18th. It has joined Jupiter on March 5th and Neptune on March 13th. These are key dates to access grace and the divine.
Mercury in Aquarius Mercury is now in Pisces -an water sign that is the emotionally sensitive sign of Pisces.
Jupiter: The Explorer/Teacher
Where Jupiter is placed in your chart is where you find your Faith. Jupiter is now in Pisces from December 29th. Water signs benefit-Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces until May 10th 2022. It then moves into Aries as it is moving really fast. It re-enters Pisces on October 29th until December 20th 2022.
Saturn: The Strategist/Authority
It is now in Aquarius, a sign it co-rules with Uranus. The theme of last year is Saturn in a tense relationship (a square) with Uranus. This is the old versus the new. Rebellion and protest marches were seen in the news on a daily basis. Which side are you on? Do you obey the rules? Or do you revolt? This last square was on December 24 but it is still ‘in orb’. Jupiter is now strong in its own sign of Pisces so can balance its effect.
Neptune: The Dreamer/Visionary
The date that is most important is April 12th when Jupiter joins Neptune in Pisces.
Uranus- The Renegade/Awakener is now direct
Uranus takes approx 7 years to go through a sign and always brings change/revolution. It is the planet that rules inventions and genius. Its now in Taurus (May 2018-April 2026 approx.) and we are witnessing the alarming news about climate change. Taurus is ruled by Venus, and as it’s an earth sign, we are now concerned with agriculture, our food chain and an awakening to our planet’s resources. In our daily lives Uranus wants to shake thing up and cut out old wood.
Pluto is the slowest moving planet and currently travelling through Capricorn from 2008 until 2024. It is the God of the Underworld and the unconscious. It is assigned to Scorpio who also have Mars as their ruler. The transit of Pluto in Capricorn calls for deconstruction of the establishment and institutions.
