Many are experiencing some sense of loss, confusion, or feelings
of unclarity as the stellium of planets in Pisces aspects Neptune,
Mercury squares Mars
along with Venus as we move through the first part of the last week
of February. Venus peaked in its square to Mars February 23-26, and is
still within an orb of influence. This transit can cause sparks to fly one way or another in relationships.
This can also affect any social relationship or money.
For some this has
been a time of stress and friction, and yet for others this energy has been
used to liven up the social or romantic life.
Mercury is square
Mars, and the transit is exact February 26, but its influence will be felt
before and after.
transits can be a time of high mental energy, communication and friction, anger
or upset. Heated arguments can occur, impulsive decisions can be made,
disagreements, irritation or upset can be common and some may lash out at
others. You should use caution with driving and transportation at this time as
it is accident prone. If you are feeling angry or frustrated it is best to let
this energy pass before striking out at something or someone you may later
regret. Then again, some may be relieved to finally speak their mind.
All of this is setting the stage for the full moon in
Virgo that occurs March 1.
Virgo rules the 6th
house of health and work, and it is here many of us will be focused at this
A Virgo full Moon
can be discerning, but the other side of this is criticism. We could face
self-criticism, or feel critical of others.
While Virgo is
typically a sign connected with groundedness and clarity the opposite may hold
true this time as this Moon opposes
Neptune, and this may prove to be a challenging time for many.
transits tend to increase the subconscious drives that are already there. As
Neptune is the planet of illusion, delusion and confusion, clarity will not be
easy to come by. We can experience withdrawal of ourselves or others,
hypersensitivity, confusion and indecisiveness, impractical ideas, deception or
self deception or overindulgence in alcohol or substances if that tendency
The other side of
this transit can be creativity, psychic awareness, spiritual awakenings and
compassion for others.
By March 4, the Sun will conjunct Neptune at 13 degrees
of Pisces. Many events connected to the full moon will play
out at or around this time. This can be a time of creativity, spirituality and
compassion, or it can be a time fraught with confusion, sadness and lack of
clarity or even betrayal. Or it can be a combination of both.
If you experienced
issues when Mercury conjuncted Neptune February 25, or when Mars was
square Neptune you could see a replay of these or similar issues at this time.
As Pisces rules the
12th house some situations may relate to endings in some way or secret
information can be revealed at this time.
Either way, the
powerful stellium ( 4 planets in the same sign=Pisces) will end soon as Mercury
and Venus enter Aries in about 10 days and we begin the journey toward spring
and the astrological New year!
