Starcast for the week beginning March 5th, 2014
ARIES [Mar 21 - Apr 19]
The “I” in you must be solid before and kind of “we" can happen and function healthy and well. Mars, your ruler, is in Libra, which means, “the I planet is in the we sign”. Mars is also retrograde which tends to invert the focus, creating a pause and a time to reflect about all of your relationships. This trend offers you an opportunity to bring your connections back into a greater state of balance and to adjust those that are begging to reach a greater state of harmony. With Mars being your ruler Aries, one of your lessons is in learning to listen more closely to the needs of others before bolting in the direction that you desire. You are typically the first one through the gates and the first one in line and for now and in the coming few months, a large majority of your focus is going to be about how your moves impact others. You are experiencing a necessary softening and within this softening, an energy shift will result, which will in turn dramatically alter what and how you attract, for the better.
Give in to the good that will come your way as a result of bringing down those walls!
TAURUS [Apr 20 - May 21]
Recently you may have found yourself to be feeling perched up upon a fence, energetically straddling your past and your future as Venus, your ruler, in Capricorn was forming a square to the North and South Node. Entering this week, however, there will feel to be a shift as Venus enters Aquarius on Wednesday, March 5, allowing you to inwardly observe where you have gotten stuck in the past and the dynamics that need to change so certain feeling themes do not continue to repeat. This trend also connects to themes surrounding how you are valued in your work. Venus in Aquarius is progressively forming an angle of support to its ruler, Uranus, suggesting if you commit to making necessary changes, those alterations will stick. Can you think of one thing in your life that if you know you changed, would create a positive domino effect on everything that it touched? Just the right chess move could change the game.
Think two steps ahead and then make your move!
GEMINI [May 22 - Jun 21]
Fear has a way of coming back to bite you and with your ruler Mercury now moving direct and approaching another square to Saturn, some old hard emotion may be surfacing. It can become a self fulfilling prophecy if you are not careful so when you can use your mind to direct your life in the ways that you wish versus wish not, all the better. Venus, the planet of ease and relief, exits stodgy Capricorn and enters fellow air sign Aquarius on Wednesday, March 5, allowing you to find your faith again, not only in yourself, but a true trust in a certain plan or process. It will allow you to uncover some realistic variations to your plan and as you do, you begin to see the light of a better way through. When the world says, "Give up," Hope whispers, "Try it one more time.”
The third time, this time, will be a charm!
CANCER [Jun 22 - Jul 22]
If it all fell by the wayside, and every friendship you thought you had fell apart, what would you have left? With Mars’ movement retrograde now until well into May in Libra, there will be a strong focus on your inner relationship to yourself. Mars is covering emotional ground in your house of home, the inner home as well as within the physical space where you dwell. Every feeling topic along these lines is up for grabs and will be high on your Soul’s radar. Anytime you feel alone or on your own, use this time to learn how to become a better friend to yourself. Venus exits your opposite sign and enters Aquarius on Wednesday, March 5, and as the days progress you will be feeling as if more inner lights are being turned on as your awareness of the deeper dimensions of who you are, are revealed. More of your individual nature, that which makes you unique in the world, will be making its way out. Jupiter stations direct in your sign on Thursday, March 6, reminding you just how good it feels to honor your natural way in the world, and the abundance you will effortlessly attract when you do.
It’s just a matter of time!
LEO [Jul 23 - Aug 22]
Whatever you have been emotionally wrestling with backs off now for a while and possibly for good as Saturn in Scorpio cools its jets as you find spaces to reflect about why something has been so actively eating at you. At times certain feelings when fed, can become so fixed that it feels as if they have a hold on you that you cannot control. You can find your way back to a healthier feeling you as Mars also moves retrograde but in your house of thoughts and communication, allowing you to talk things through or set your mind on a path that works to promote more harmonious exchanges and outcomes. Venus exits Capricorn and enters your house of relationships on Wedday, March 5, inviting more love and ease into your connections. It must have been a Leo who was quoted saying, “Love makes the world go round”, and following Monday, as Venus progressively sextiles Uranus, you are going to remember this feeling for yourself, firsthand.
Sunshine at last!
VIRGO [Aug 23 - Sep 22]
So everything may not be going as planned, and not in exactly the right order that you prefer. Your ruler Mercury, and as of Wednesday, March 5, Venus as well, will be in unpredictable Aquarius in your house that governs the daily grind. Your nervous system may be elevated some but find a way to breathe from your belly and you will be able to work within the uncertainty. A friend shared a quote that her math teacher in middle school told the students. He said, “You gotta ride the skid before you can change it.” Something has been set in motion so no use throwing all of your precious energy into fighting something you cannot control. On the other side of Monday, March 10, and in the week that follows, a change you did not see coming will make the wild ride and the gray hair gained as a result, worth every ounce of stress.
Productive pursuits are right around the corner!
LIBRA [Sep 23 - Oct 23]
With Mars’ movement through Libra since the first week of December, you have been finding a way to get your groove back. You have been stepping up and speaking out and the roof of your tolerance in certain connections has been reached. Mars has a way of unlocking emotion in you that you were not even aware existed, to the point of not even knowing what to do with it once it has surfaced. With Mars now retrograde in your sign, it will give you a chance to sift through all these emotions and desires so you can make choices that benefit you as well as the other. You will undoubtedly be reflecting upon all of your connections and wanting to do a better job at bringing your best and yet balancing what is fair and just. New relationships and projects may have been set in motion in the past few months and now you can assess whether they are worth pursuing. Venus, you ruler, enters fellow air sign Aquarius on Wednesday, March 5, offering creative options for loving change in your life.
On the other side of Monday, a primary relationship will prosper or a friendship will flourish as a result of mixing things up and trying something radically new!
SCORPIO [Oct 24 - Nov 21]
It is time to pull back your focus and take the larger view Scorpio. There are details and in truth, very small things, that you are letting get the better of you. You may be losing yourself and your sanity in this micro-view of a process and as Mercury forms another square to Saturn in your sign on Monday, March 10, you may not have felt the last of it. That will be your limit reaching roof. Who is in charge of you anyway Scorpio? Either you are letting a person, a circumstance or your own fears run the show and this is not at all a true reflection of your powerful self. A bit of vulnerability may also set in as Venus enters Aquarius in your house of the emotional body on Wednesday, March 5, which will be a good thing. It will allow you to humble yourself in a key process with the intention to help you emotionally objectify your attachment to a certain outcome. Jupiter stations direct on Thursday, March 6, in fellow water sign Cancer, granting you a little more faith in your stride and in the truth of what lives in your heart!
A break from the intensity is closer than you think!
SAGITTARIUS [Nov 22 - Dec 21]
You are bound to feel a visceral lift as Venus enters Aquarius on Wednesday, March 5, and your ruler Jupiter stations direct the following day in feeling Cancer. These shifts can help on many fronts, including your relationships and your financial well being. On the deepest level however, forward moving Jupiter in your house of the Soul can help you intuitively and emotionally connect with your highest path, whereby you will feel you are easily able to honor the intentions set out for yourself prior to entering this life. The more you are true to your nature, making choices that reflect who you are versus what someone else wants you to be, the more opportunities will effortlessly come your way. Jupiter is the the planet of growth and expansion and it will be the first in line to help you take your life experience to greater heights and more meaningful depths. All you gotta do is ‘show up’ ready and willing Sag!
“Take one step toward the Gods and they will take ten steps toward you.” (Joseph Campbell)
CAPRICORN [Dec 22 - Jan 19]
With your ruler Saturn retrograde now for the next four months, and Mars also retrograde in Libra, until the third week in May in your house of commitments, it is going to be like a demolition derby in your life, involving anything that does not have the staying power or the strength to support a structure that your Soul needs to move forward. You are going to be pulling down beams of old so you better get your hard hat on because parts are gonna fly. You will enjoy watching the fireworks of sorts similar to clearing out old stuff you held onto that was just collecting dust and holding space, stuff you clearly did not have any use for any longer. Jupiter stations direct in your opposite sign on Thursday, March 6, which will help to improve all of your relationships now and on the horizon, especially if you lead with absolute honesty.
Lead with the truth, be open to more vulnerable loving, and more of what you crave will land in you life!
AQUARIUS [Jan 20 - Feb 19]
You are in store for a life fueling feeling similar to coming up for air after being held under water as Venus enters your sign on Wednesday, March 5. Venus can make all the bad times better, she can turn those hard vibes around on a dime and sweeten your life like a cool and gentle breeze on a hot and muggy day. As she progresses into your sign, she will gradually form an angle of great support to your ruler Uranus within the next two weeks. For now, she is getting used to land and to her new digs and together you will find a feeling that is new and true, one that can add an air of excitement to your days. You may be doubting yourself some from now until Monday but patience will help you work through any trust issues you have within another and ultimately the trust you have in yourself to know what is best. Jupiter stations direct on Thursday, March 6, in your house of habits, helping you to keep your thoughts on the ‘up and up’ and when you feel good on the inside, life on the outside tends to follow suit!
When you hear the Venusian Goddess knocking, do not hesitate to let her in!
PISCES [Feb 19 - Mar 20]
Being on the heels of a New Moon in your sign Pisces, per usual, you are reminded that life is only limited by your imagination and for you, this is infinite. Dreams continue to pour through your thought stream as you seek and search for ultimate meaning. Venus shifts into Aquarius in your house of the unseen on Wednesday, March 5, which will only add to your active inner travels. Jupiter in fellow water sign Cancer stations direct on Thursday, March 6, which will have a way of stretching your heart and have you reaching for more. Someone standing in your way may serve as a sort of buzz kill in the coming days when Mercury squares Saturn in Scorpio on Monday, March 10, as you are told why what you want won’t work. But you press on and you know in your Soul that you will find a way.
One way or another, you and I both know, there will positively be a way!
