Moonday Monday, Your Weekly Forecast 3/4-3/10
March is upon us!
This week is an energetically heavy week as Mercury stations Retrograde in Pisces, we have a New Moon in Pisces, Uranus enters Taurus, the Sun makes a conjunction to Neptune in Pisces, the Sun makes a Sextile to Saturn in Capricorn , and we end the week with Mars making a Sextile to Neptune. Although not all these transits are negative, the Mercury RX period may cause things to feel more difficult than they should.
We are entering a new phase as a collective with Uranus entering Taurus on Wednesday and we may find ourselves wanting to make some drastic changes to our physical world. But as always with Uranus, we may find ourselves amongst change whether we wanted it or not.
I wrote a lot of guidance for this week below and found myself making many grammatical errors as well as typos, which isn't unlike me but it seemed extra bad today. The Mercury fog and shadow of the retrograde has been effecting me quite a bit as of late and while that's no excuse, I do apologize for any typos or run on sentences that I failed to correct in my edits. As a Pisces Moon in the 3rd house opposing my Virgo Mercury in the 9th, this seems to be a life theme for me either way. Ha!
If I were to give general blanketed guidance for this week to all of you who happen to read this, I would say this week we need to let go and tune into our higher selves. This is not a time for implementing plans or routines, but rather for reviewing patterns and accessing deeper parts of ourselves without judgement.
For some of us we may reach spiritual epiphanies that bring us towards changes for the betterment of our minds, bodies, and soul. This may be a week for those suffering from addiction that they reach a new low that ignites a path to seeking help.
Pisces shadow nature is depression, escapism , isolation, and taking things personally. We are prone to these things during the Mercury Retrograde and so it will be important that we implement a good routine for our mental health and make space for self care and healing during this time.
Tarot Cards for the week:
The Moon, The Tower, The High Priestess, Temperance, Judgement, 7 of Cups, 8 of Cups, 9 of Cups, Page of Cups, Queen of Cups, King of Cups, Death, The Devil, The Hermit.
Moon in Aquarius
We could say that today is our last "chill" day before an emotionally intense week of transits, but some of us, if not most of us, may already be feeling the intensity of emotional energy within the shadowy build up to our Mercury RX and New Moon in Pisces. The Moon in Aquarius allows for us to keep some emotional detachment for the day and to be a little lighter with our energy than we may find ourselves in the days to come. Aquarian energy can also be intense but in a different way, a more mental focus that can either have us feeling a lot of mental conflict or feeling like we need a break and we are ready to give it to ourselves. We can see the 4 of Swords card, which is ruled by Aquarius, in the Tarot as a good energy to tap into for the day. The 4 of Swords asks us to take a break and practice some meditation and deep breathing. We need to rest and allow ourselves to be calm and peaceful within our body and minds. We benefit from tuning in and giving ourselves space to prepare for what the next few days will bring.
Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Moon Sextile Jupiter in Sagittarius 8:30 AM
We feel a need to expand our values and belief systems in the morning hours. This is a harmonious time and we may feel pulled towards learning or experiencing something new that opens up our minds and hearts in new and educational ways.
Moon Void of Course 12:05 AM
Moon enters Pisces 12:11 AM
The Moon is neutral in Pisces but tunes us into our psychic and intuitive awareness in a heightened and intense way. Our emotional capacity may be operating at an all time high which could feel like everything is too much to handle. Its common when the Moon is in Pisces that we are more susceptible to absorb the energy around us and confuse it as our own. It is important that we spend time alone and focus on rejuvenating during this time.
Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Mercury Stations Retrograde in Pisces 10:19 AM
Mercury is in its Detriment in Pisces meaning it is a weak place for Mercury to be. Mercury Retrograde in Pisces may be very uncomfortable for a lot of us and bring a lot of emotional energy we have been trying to suppress more into the forefront of our lives. Because Mercury rules communication and technology, this is also a time when electronics and transactions can be anything but smooth. It is important during this time that we learn to let go of our need for control and see where we can go more with the flow in our lives. Pisces energy can also be illusive and deceptive which means we are likely to misinterpret or understand things clearly during this time. Mercury RX lasts until March 28th which is an extra long RX. Yay for us......? Just remember its ok to cry, and if you need to do a lot of it in the next three weeks, just let it out without judgement. I'll be playing Sade and Lana Del Rey on repeat.
New Moon in Pisces 8:04 AM
New Moons are a time for setting intentions for new cycles but with Mercury Retrograde in the mix it may not feel like we are moving forward as fast as we would like to, just remember that's ok and that there is a rhyme and a reason to the cycles of the Universe. This New Moon shouldn't be focused too much on our outward lives anyways. It should be focused on healing and rejuvenating and working through deeper layers of ourselves and our connection to spirit within and without. Pisces wants us to connect to our hearts and to become one with the All. This can lead us down a path of escapism but that is not the goal. The goal is to intentionally focus our spiritual energy on connecting to the divine and the energetic vibrational frequencies of the Cosmic Universe. This is a time to align our hearts and our minds. Dreams will be enhanced during this time and the messages we receive in our dreams will serve as significant to the subconscious growth happening
