We have a Super Moon in Libra on 21 March
This time every year (21 March) we celebrate the seasons changing from Summer into Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. The equinox represents the Earth’s annual cycle around the Sun resulting in equal day and equal night. It is a time of change, endings and beginnings. We now start the astrological new year. For the next month we are being asked to spend our attention on ourselves versus the need for relationship. We need to assess who we are as well as finding the love for ourselves stronger than the need for relationship. Once we can do this we are then ready to share our love with another. You will see where you over-compromise versus where you are too selfish this month.
I woke up feeling the strong need to write about Keith’s death as I feel in the Astrology world, what people don’t understand is that we can see a lot of what is going on with peoples ‘psychological state’. No we cannot ‘fix it’, but we can definately be there to talk, give some tips of how to work with the energy more constructively, look into possible time frames that the energy is hanging around and tell you there is light at the end of the tunnel. We can recommend some very helpful professional people for you also. Of course there are other factors that come into play, but astrology is a tool that can assit. I will never forget seeing The Prodigy at Big Day Out, it is up there in one of my favourite performances ever. His ability to give so much energy and passion in his performance definately had a lot to do with his Sun ‘conjunct’ Pluto. Rest in Peace you legend!!
Mercury the planet of communication goes retrograde on 6 March 2019. Mercury retrogrades last for three weeks (technically the effects last longer but this is the time frame that Mercury is officially retrograde). Whenever a planet goes retrograde it does the reverse effects of what it does when it is going direct. Mercury goes retrograde 3-4 times a year. By rule this is not a good time to sign any important documents, make any important decisions and start anything brand new, because more than likely things will change once Mercury goes direct again. There are definitely exceptions to the rule depending on the circumstance. As Mercury is the planet that helps us communicate our thoughts and deliver our communication (whether in person or using technology), when it is retrograde it makes us internalize our thoughts and makes us very introspective over this period. Mercury takes you back over old thought patterns that you may have glossed over, and now have to take a deeper look into things (possibly need to address an issue you never got around to). It also will make communication more confusing, as there will be misunderstandings due to communication not being as clear. Around mercury retrogrades, you can expect to be delayed when trying to get somewhere fast, miss appointments by getting the days/times mixed up, and technical breakdowns with technology and cars, so triple check everything to avoid this. Time also feels like it is going very slow. Look to your Natal chart to the house ruled by Pisces, to get a better understanding of where you are being dragged back to take a deeper look. For the collective, we are all reviewing our connection to the universe and taking a look at what we believe the meaning of life is about. Some deep stuff will come up no doubt. As you and others will be highly sensitive during this time, really watch how you communicate. You will find listening to music, writing poems or doing art very therapeutic during these times.
Uranus the planet that rules
We have a Pisces new moon occurring on Thursday 7 March 2019 at NZT 5.04am. Some of you will be desiring more alone time and reflection, along with allowing your feelings to flow and letting go of what no longer serves your soul. There may be past memories that need clearing so do not be surprised if the past is on your mind. These are all typical themes we deal with this time every year as Pisces represents the end of the astrological year. The Moon is making some nice aspects to other planets at the time of the New Moon, therefore we have some magic to tap into this month. We have the Moon ‘conjunct’ Neptune, giving us the opportunity to practice more trust in the universe. There is a ‘universal order’ to how things will play out this month so try and allow synchronicity to step in, as opposed to trying to control everything. There is magic in surrendering to the flow of the universe and trusting things will pan out as they should. Due to Neptune’s foggy qualities, this conjunction can also bring with it some confusion and fantasy in how we are seeing certain situations or people. The more conscious awareness we have, the more we can discern what is reality so keep up your spiritual practices to ensure you are grounded and not getting swept up in illusion. Dreams will be very vivid along with our psychic abilities. You may feel a bit confused and all over the place, but the fact you know this means you can sit back and observe what is coming up to heal and be released. It is all happening to ultimately help show us the way to our soul purpose. Saturn, Pluto and Mars are all ‘sextiling’ the Moon which means we have a helping hand from the universe to bring our dreams down into reality this month. We have the practicality and stamina to persevere with our life’s vision. Jupiter is ‘squaring’ this New Moon, therefore the advice here is to not overdo things this month as you could find it easy to overindulge and push yourself. I recommend you spend some time alone over the days of the New Moon and allow yourself to connect to your soul either through meditating/yoga or music. This is when the insights come to us and the healing can take place. Look to your Natal chart and see which house is ruled by Pisces to get an in depth idea where endings and beginnings are occurring with this New Moon. Remember things need to fall apart in order for new energy to surge in.
Venus, the planet of love and values enters freedom loving and intellectual Aquarius on NZT Saturday 2 March 2019. You may notice your relationships change ‘vibe’ for the next month. You will likely become more chatty, looking for more adventures to be had, spending time with what feels like your ‘tribe’ and generally socialize a lot more and mix with different people. As Aquarius is an air sign, people born with this energy love to discuss different ideas and innovate. Therefore you may find yourself thinking more uniquely, seeing things from different views and you may also notice yourself become more receptive to environmental factors and the need to help the environment. It is a great time to get out and meet new people from all walks of life as well as creating gatherings with friends. I encourage you to also listen to new ideas that may be coming up out of the blue. For a better understanding of how you will be affected look to your Natal chart to the house ruled by Aquarius.
Wednesday 20 February 2019 at 4.54am NZT we experience a Super Full Moon in Virgo. Super Moons occur when the Moon is closer to Earth, and on February 19th, the Moon will be at its closest point all year. Around this time you may find yourself looking very closely at your diet/health, exercise, routine and how you are being of service. It is important to not let the details of life stress you out around this time, but more importantly “discern” what it is that needs your attention. You may find you want to spend this Full Moon period doing some sort of detox for the mind, body and soul. If health issues come up around this time, then take it as a sign that you need to reinvent your schedule for a more healthy ‘you’ time. The aspects that this Full Moon is making is a ‘trine’ over to Mars and Uranus. Maybe something out of the blue will happen around this Full Moon that involves a new way of work, eating, health or exercise. We also have Saturn ‘sextile’ Mercury on this day, therefore something on a more spiritual and ‘untouched’ level is helping to bring concrete foundations into your life. Look to your Natal chart to the house ruled by Virgo to get a more
