It’s been a while since I was here on the Blog. the last time I posted I was in India. Since then I returned to the US around the Aquarius New Moon Eclipse, and it’s taken me a minute to settle down to a regular routine.
Before I get into the current Astrology, I have an important announcement.
After a nearly five year hiatus — I am writing the Annual Horoscopes for the coming year 2018 – 2019 and I couldn’t be more excited…!
You can pre-order these here: Cosmic Diaries: 2018-2019 Annual Horoscopes – Pre-Order page or at the links below. (This is the pre-order price, which will increase once the Horoscopes are released.)
I hope to have them out around the Aries New Moon or the end of April, but will keep you posted of any changes as we move through the retrograde.
Getting back to the present:
We’re past the Equinox, currently the Sun is in Aries, Moon is in Gemini, and we’re moving forward from the Pisces New Moon on March 17, 2018 to the Libra Full Moon on March 31, 2018.
Yesterday, on March 22: Mercury stationed retrograde in Aries and will retrace his steps until April 15, 2018 asking us to slow down and pay attention. The retrograde is period of review, re-negotiation, a time to be mindful and double check all your communication.
In Aries: watch out for that sharp tongue. If things are heated, remember you can’t take back your words and they could come back to bite you so be careful with what you say. And avoid taking others’ tempers and moods personally. You needn’t be afraid to be honest, but pick your battles wisely.
Aries rules the self — this is not about another but you. And the retrograde is introspective transit, this is a chance to investigate your core beliefs, and sense of identity. Who are you? What do you believe? Why? What does that inner voice sound like: is it critical, loving, or encouraging? Be honest with yourself above all, then you can communicate honestly, and make authentic choices in alignment with an inner truth.
Also today, Venus in Aries is approaching a square to Pluto in Capricorn (exact 7:16 PM EDT, Mar. 22, 2018) and the Sun in Aries squares Mars in Capricorn tomorrow on Mar. 23, 2018.
With Venus-Pluto, the Sun-Mars, relationships and financial situations are highlighted. Passions are raging high. There’s a sense of struggle for control in a situation you feel out of control in; fighting one’s desires, anger, fears of intimacy, success, failure, sexual desires;
Whatever your experience, the squares suggest you are turning a corner; but they also suggest this will come from an inner resolution of energy rather than projecting it outward. You needn’t control anything, anyone or even yourself. Give yourself permission to feel what you feel — whether its passion, anger, love, lust, desire — and want what you want. But let go of attachments to an outcome and/or your expectations of another.
Avoid compromising your values or desires and be someone you’re not, to please another. The Sun is in Aries, this is about you simply “being”. The surging passions within you are awakening you to your life, letting you know you are alive.
As you reclaim your energy, you’re evolving in consciousness and awareness of your power to build a life you dream of, and attract, find balance, and create equal relationships you desire.
We’re moving from the Pisces New Moon, the sign that rules “unconditional love” to the Libra Full Moon, ruling “relationships.” Here’s an excerpt from the Pisces New Moon/Libra Full Moon report:
“we’re learning lessons of unconditional love. You can’t clutch water or love in your hand, and you can’t give from an empty cup. But you can immerse yourself in it, drink deeply of it in every moment.
We’re coming up on a big year astrologically: Chiron enters Pisces, Uranus enters Taurus, and both Mars and Venus station Rx in Aquarius and Scorpio, bringing tangible shifts in the scenery of our life — personally and globally. In relationships as well, expect major shake-ups, perhaps sudden break-ups, and unexpected blossoming romances.
I had not planned on writing the Annual Horoscopes this year. After 8 years of intensive horoscope writing 2012-2013, I felt the need to take a step back from writing horoscopes to gain perspective on it all.
But a couple of weeks ago as I was reflecting on the coming year, I had the sudden urge to start writing, and the Annual Horoscopes started to flow and take on a life of their own — so here we are.
I write these horoscopes with the hope that they will be a guiding light as you navigate the coming months, and I hope you find them useful. With a little faith, luck, and patience we can open our arms to the bounty and changes rolling in.
