Shifting tides now, which means we are shifting our consciousness, our minds, and perhaps our inner beliefs as well.
Mercury is finally going back Direct this week, and as it goes back Direct we have the promise of receiving more clarity and direction soon.
Mercury goes back Direct on Thursday March 28 at 9:59 AM EDT.
Now that does not mean all of a sudden everything is crystal clear, or that signs pointing us in the right direction will be abundant and billboard certain.
Nevertheless, we should feel the gear shift in our minds changing from reverse to neutral, then to Drive.
The neutral gear is on right before, right on , and right after the time Mercury goes direct.
That time period can actually be the most distorted, most foggy, or most confusing time in the Mercury cycle.
Mercury “rules” thinking, sharing information, and communication. So during a few days surrounding that shift out of reverse, we may feel like everything is getting better for finding clarity and direction. But usually it takes an additional week or 10 days before a more complete and clear picture appears.
As we have been writing, April 5 at the Aries New Moon is a good marking point for moving forward with clear direction and intention.
But even then, both Saturn and Pluto will be square the New Moon, which could bring some obstacles experienced on our path forward.
But for this week, let in the notion that clarity is wanting to form now. But the slow process of Mercury getting back to its usual Direct speed, deems it is still important to hold back and wait for the clouds to fully part before jumping to conclusions or leaping before you look.
With Mercury slowing down to shift from Reverse to Direct, the Mueller report comes out, though in some kind of secrecy.
How much of it will be made public? Why are there no new indictments? Will other branches of government or other legal avenues still be investigating. And what is in this report?
Not being made totally public seems to me to be an obvious affront to our democracy, which is “of the people by the people, and for the people”. Is it not?
But Mercury Retrograde is still in force till Thursday the 28th; then immediately afterward will still be rather murky in its lenses for 10 days or so afterward.
So clarity will be slow to form around this Mueller report. And Trump’s fate will not be sealed yet either.
But as we have been expressing, Trump is not the most important issue. He is merely an actor in this drama of a changing of ages and paradigms.
The transformation of our consciousness and heart is of utmost importance now. And we each need to become what we believe in.
We each also need to know and own and be true to our role or function or purpose in this changing world now.
The Military Industrial Complex is coming down, out of the form it is currently occupying.
So the economy and military world condition of the USA is only in the beginning stages of transformation. This transformation will happen no matter who the elected officials are.
Pluto (in its 1st ever natal USA Return), Saturn and Jupiter will be making triple conjunction with the USA natal Pluto. This happens 2019-2024.
In its natal chart, the USA has Pluto in Capricorn in its 2nd house. That placement is symbolic of the Military Industrial Complex.
The transformation will be immense and will affect the whole world. The need to reform and transform this world and each of our consciousness’ into the better angels of the Age of Aquarius is so important now, as that endeavor will help provide the foundation for this New World.
It is important to elect people who are most attuned to the principles, values and ideals of a new age and paradigm.
So 2020 becomes so important in that regard, especially so because right after the November 2020 Election Day, in December 2020: Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, giving us a sign that a portal into the Age of Aquarius will be opening then.
In addition to the shift of Mercury from Retrograde to Direct this week, we also have Venus going into Pisces on Tuesday the 26th; the 4th and last quarter Moon in Capricorn on the 28th; and Mars entering Gemini on the 30th.
Venus going into Pisces on the 26th is a wake up call for rebooting our heart energy to include more empathy and compassion now.
Quan Yin is an apt archetype for Venus in Pisces. Venus in Pisces, with its compassion, does need, however, to have the kind of boundaries that stop them from being used or from sacrificing themselves into a selfless position.
Venus will stay in Pisces until April 20, so you have some time to do some healing and give more care to your relationships.
In doing counseling of couples for many years, I have noticed the most improvements in relationships when each partner can truly put themselves in the shoes of the other.
Empathy is a solid bridge between people’s hearts. This does not mean forgetting about your own needs. But it does mean putting their needs as important as your own.
The 4th quarter Moon in Capricorn is on the same day as Mercury going back Direct.
So it is good to be aware that the Moon is darkening every day until the New Moon in Aries on February 5.
So the Yin-ward journey of this darkening 4th quarter Moon in Capricorn, is needing to be made real and needs to hold strong boundaries.
There is no room now for pity parties; there is plenty of room for making plans that will produce action later.
Mars goes into Gemini on the 31st at 2:12 AM EDT. It stays there until May 15, when it goes into Cancer. On its way through Gemini in early May, it makes conjunction with the USA natal Mars in Gemini.
And it also will oppose transiting Jupiter in Sagittarius, which will be opposing the USA natal Mars in Gemini.
And Trump’s natal Sun and Moon in Gemini and Sagittarius, respectively, will be also aspected as they make close natal contact with the USA militant and Military Mars.
This shows that the USA police and/or military will be in the spotlight this Spring 2019.
For all of us Mars in Gemini signifies a time when we are more curious, more filled with questions and desires to question authority or accepted ways of being.
Mars in Gemini motivates us to learn or teach; to get more objective facts; to communicate, write, or talk more; to open our minds to new ways of thinking.
Next week we experience the force of a New Moon in Aries on April 5. I will have a new video out before then.
