“We are allowed to set in motion anything which we would be the happy recipient of!” – Caroline Casey NCGR Conference Keynote Speech Feb 2017
Wed Feb 22nd: Mars in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn
Sunday Feb 26th: Annular Solar Eclipse at 8’ Pisces 12 + Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries
Mars square Pluto at 18’ 37 Aries and Capricorn (conjunct Uranus in Aries 3’ orb and square Jupiter 4′ orb):
Mars in Aries has a natural impatience which is likely to be expressed as an immediate urgency to break down, change and transform any structures, borders, rules and limitations that are no longer authentic in our lives. The sense of urgency and impatience is likely to be experienced in the area of our birth chart that Mars is travelling through and the structures that are being challenged are related to the part of our chart that Pluto is in right now. (See the attached chart). There is likely to be a strong pull between doing what we want and finding a way to also have consideration of others. Best to keep as grounded and centered in ourselves as we can! This transit is intrinsically connected to what is happening on Sunday when Mars moves 3’ to form an exact conjunction with Uranus in Aries.
Sunday: Mars conjunct Uranus at 21’ Aries 59 (square Pluto in Capricorn 3’ orb, opposite Jupiter in Libra 1’ orb):
With Mars moving into an exact conjunction with Uranus the urgency to take action and create radical change right here and now escalates rapidly on a personal and collective level. Jupiter in Libra is the voice of balance reminding us that whatever action we take needs to be based on equality and fairness as well as a degree of compromise, as none of our actions occur in isolation. Meanwhile the trine to Saturn highlights the importance of checking the ‘beliefs’ that our actions are based on. However, as the skies are filled with watery Piscean energies today, it may be worth waiting until the Piscean fog lifts somewhat before making important life changing decisions.
Sunday: The Annular Solar Eclipse (New Moon) at 8’ Pisces 12:
As the Moon passes between the Earth and Sun today our ego is momentarily obscured by our emotions. With 4 planets in Pisces + Chiron and the South Node, the planetary energies are predominantly emotional as we swim in the oceanic depths of our feelings. Like all forms of water, Piscean energy ideally needs to flow. When it’s blocked, feelings tend to freeze and if uncontained they can flood! At it’s most expansive Pisces is about spiritual connection, imagination, unconditional love and compassion. At it’s most limited it can be about escapism, avoidance of responsibilities, commitment or accountability and/or being a martyr or victim. Pisces energy can create a hall of mirrors where we struggle to figure out what’s real and what is illusion, later resulting in an inevitable delusion.
The conjunction of the Eclipse to the South Node as well as to Neptune can indicate that issues related to past lifetimes may come to the surface at this time to be healed and released on a personal and collective level. It may be very helpful to pay particular notice to dreams this weekend and the people and situations you encounter. With only Pluto in an Earth sign, there is little grounding in the planetary energies so we need to provide it for ourselves through nature, exercise, visualizations…
Core themes to explore with this Pisces Eclipse:
1. Oneness and unconditional love – Who do you love unconditionally – including yourself? Who loved you unconditionally as a child?
2. Spirituality – What is your relationship with the ‘spiritual’ dimension of life? What helps you to connect with this level within yourself?
3. Creativity and Imagination – How do you express your creativity?
4. Feelings – What feelings do you struggle to express and what tools assist you to do so?
5. Addictions – What addictions mask your feelings? What feelings would come to the surface if you stopped all your addictions?
Dr. Bernadette Brady describes this Eclipse, which belongs to Saros Series 19 South, as follows:
“This is a family of Eclipses that brings with it the element of the pleasant surprise. Sudden happiness, a joyful event, the lucky break, the lucky win. The events which will be occurring can be believed and can positively change the person’s life.”
