This Week's Intention: Touch the earth with your feet but let your heart
fling wide open to the winds of change.
Moon is waning (dark half). The week begins with Moon in the 4th tithi and the sign Libra. It passes through Scorpio (its sign of debilitation), Sagittarius, and into Capricorn this week. There is much change happening with the planets in a seven day period!! Mercury has just entered Aquarius, Venus jumps into Aries, Sun moves to Pisces and Saturn goes retrograde.
Mercury enters Aquarius on Sunday the 8th, which starts the week off with a vulnerable Mercury. Don't force mental activities, writing or commerce, until it strengthens in degrees on Tuesday. Mercury moves into Aquarius on Sunday at 17:44 PST until March 27th, and is conjunct Sun until March 14th. With Mercury now out of the gaze of Rahu and Saturn, we may begin to feel more clarity in mind, focus and intention. Get organized, focused and clear. Set goals, take action and achieve the aim. This will require your ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit, but it will be worth it.
Monday sweeps in with winds of change as Moon transits Swati nakshatra, ruled by the wind god, Vayu. We may feel a sense of strength and inner power arise, with the courage to make change and take action. Start asking for what you want!
We may feel a sense of being divided on Tuesday as we confront two different paths before us. Do you take the road less traveled or the one that is well worn? The only way to know for certain which is the right one is to go with what feels the most nourishing and supportive. The answer will come from your heart, your ability to feel what deeply nourishes you, not from the mind.
As the Moon enters Scorpio early morning on Wednesday, our physical and emotional sensitivities are aroused. Moon is debilitated in Scorpio and conjuncts Saturn here, a recipe for deep intuitive insights resourced from the somatic wisdom of the body. Or this combination can bring a sensation of instability and fragility. The most important task at hand for the next two days is to get embodied. Stay connected to your physical body and breath, and to physical sensation as much as possible.
Venus moves to the edge of Pisces on Wednesday and is simultaneously strengthened and weakened by this placement. Our relationship with endings, loss and release is deepening as a result of so much activity in Pisces- which is intimately connected to themes with the emotional body and transformation. As Ketu, Mars and exalted Venus have been conjunct here for several weeks we've had an opportunity to work with restructuring our relationship to money, relationships and creativity in a very intensified way. Venus crosses the tricky gandanta (gap) between Pisces (endings and water) and jumps into Aries (beginnings and fire) early morning Thursday the 12th at 05:18 am PST. This jump starts new creative beginnings for relationships, money and artistry and offers a certain passionate, dynamic spirit in the process. Use this zest to create something new in your life, just don't get burned out in the process!

Thursday requires us to not get lost in precision or mental body story telling. Stay one-pointed and goal focused, but not at the loss of expanding your awareness, possibility and creative imagination. The challenge will be to stay open minded, awake, hopeful. Keep the faith alive.
As Sun moves to the edge of Aquarius on Friday, we may feel mentally and physically drained, fried and overwhelmed. Mercury shifts into Satabisha nakshatra today bringing an extra critical edge to the mind over the next ten days. How can you build a deeper, more compassionate relationship with your inner critic? Moon shifts into Sagittarius midday and an uprooting process begins. We must start digging below the surface, turning up the ground and preparing the soil for new seeds. Moon is moving through Mula nakshatra, Nirrti's domain, which insures this will be a disheveled, chaotic process. Stay grounded as much as possible and touch the earth for support.
Early morning Saturday, Saturn begins his six month retrograde motion. This is an event of re-visiting our structures, support systems- both internally and externally. The returning process is happening on an emotional body level which will demand our complete attention- especially as Jupiter continues to transit through the heart-centered emotional water sign of Cancer. The inner work that we commit to at this time will be lasting, deeply rooted change. This will bring transformation on the physical and emotional body levels. Read more about Saturn's transit through Scorpio and how he is impacting each sign.
The next big cosmic shift of the week comes late Saturday as Sun moves into Pisces at 16:24 PST. We've had weeks of intense focus on water signs and our emotional body, but now the heat is on! Fire intensifies as the Sun moves into the water sign Pisces, conjunct Mars and Ketu here. A triple fire combination in a water sign! And the water planet Venus is also in a fire sign, Aries, as well. The next two weeks will require us to face our challenging emotions diligently, yet the gaze of Jupiter onto Pisces will assist with support and nourishment for this process. Anger will be an important theme to address during this time. What is underneath the anger?! What is your anger trying to tell you?! What are the needs below the anger, frustration and rage?! Addressing your anger will help you find a deeper relationships with passion, your fire of life. Be brave!
Saturday, seek fluidity as much as possible. Feel your way towards change. What are your needs and what nourishes you? Break away from what isn't working and search for what does.
Use Sunday to find your footing. Root, ground and sense through your feet. We may feel a bit wobbly as Sun has newly entered Pisces (the sign connected to feet) But the Vishva Devas are here to offer their support if you'll let them in. Moon moves to Capricorn late Sunday and themes of support, stability, grounding and structure predominate. Don't force it. Instead see if you can soften towards the support. It's here, be willing to receive.
Monday helps us expand and become aware of new resources. Stay awake and open to receive what arrives.
