Mercury, the planet of communication, stationed direct on February 28, 2014 at 18 degrees of Aquarius. Mercury rules all modes of communication, commerce, computers, telephones, transportation, and air travel. A lot of people have told me that this was a particularly difficult Mercury retrograde period for the. They experienced a lot of computer issues, car problems, delays,cancellations, disagreements,etc. Mercury was initially conjunct Neptune, planet of confusion, when it went retrograde in Pisces. This added to the dreamy confusion; not to mention that Mercury changed signs and retrograded back into the sign of Aquarius.
Mercury is now direct; however, there are still a lot of planetary shifts going on this week. Mars,the planet of ambition, energy, sex, and war, retrogrades at 27 degrees of Libra on March 2nd, 2014. Mars is not comfortable in the harmonious sign of Libra, and it worsens with this retrograde. Saturn, the planet of karma, structure, and responsibility, retrogrades at 23 degrees of Scorpio on March 2nd, as well. Both can deal with work matters, so there could be delays or problems with business issues. Mars will be retrograde through May 20th,2014. Saturn will be retrograde through July 21st, 2014.
Both Libra and Scorpio are relationship signs. Libra is the sign of marriage and partnerships. Scorpio is the sign of intimate relationships and financial partnerships. Take your time on matters which require permanent decisions. On top of these two planets retrograde, we are building up to a Grand Cross of planets on April 28, 2014 involving Jupiter, Uranus, Pluto, and Mars. This is a huge cosmic configuration which will have heart breaks and breakthoughs. It is going to be very disruptive and confusing time. Therefore, take things slowly this next couple of months to try to maintain your balance.
There is a new moon at 10 degrees of Pisces on March 1, 2014 at 2:59 AM EST. This new moon in Pisces is trine Jupiter, the luckiest planet. it is also conjunct Neptune, the planet of dreams. It is a very creative and visionary moon. It is a great time to make a vision board or write down your intentions and meditate on them for a while. You could have some really unusual dreams with this psychic mixture.
The new moon in Pisces is great for doing the Law of Abundance. Take a blank check and write the date of the new moon, March 1, 2014. Print out your name, where it says "Pay to the order of," and then leave the small numeric box blank. On the next line, print "PAID IN FULL," and at the bottom where you normally sign your name, print "THE LAW OF ABUNDANCE. " This is a powerful way to manifest abundance and prosperity. -- Tisch
