Week of March 10-16, 2003
First – The Astrological Weather Affecting Us All:
Sun square Pluto 3/9-11 at 20 Pisces/Sagittarius. More tension. Heightened sex drives. Deep and perhaps hidden desires for more power or money. Power, money and sex aren’t bad in themselves. It is so often the judgment against them that warps otherwise natural desires. Be aware of the needs you judge and therefore try to hide. Your unconscious acts can expose your unconscious motivations. While this may feel uncomfortable to say the least, it can give you self-awareness!
*Uranus enters Pisces 3/10 until 9/14, when it’ll back into Aquarius until 12/30 when it again enters Pisces, this time until 2010! Uranus isn’t just smart; it’s ingenious. It isn’t just innovative; it’s revolutionary. It isn’t just protest; it’s rebellion. It isn’t just personal; it’s global. Pisces is a sign of change. Uranus was last there in the 1920s. Prohibition was on, denying the citizenry legal access to alcohol – spirits. Pisces is a sign of “spirits,” both the alcoholic type and the angelic. Naturally, with rebellious Uranus there, the nation saw the speakeasy, the sharp rise in organized crime as they were only too happy to slake the thirst of Americans, and the general assertion of the right to enjoy one’s self in any way one saw fit. Think of the 1920s “flapper” girls.
Now, Uranus in Pisces may usher in an age where people assert the freedom to experience “spirit” in any way one sees fit. Religions of every stripe will be re-examined. People will seek their own answers and rebel against “religious authority,”. Anti-drug laws will also get close scrutiny, as the populace will seriously question the cost/benefit ratio of drug enforcement and imprisonment. On a personal level, check where 00 Pisces is in your chart. The house will tell you in what area you will make surprising changes that will get you closer to spirit.
And now, for your sign this week…
Pisces (2/18-3/20): Uranus in your sign means you get to do it your way. Now all you have to do is to figure what “your way” actually is. Rebelling against expectations is to be expected, but whose? The expectations of others or your own, perhaps limiting, self-expectations?
Aries (3/20-4/20): Clean out the psychic closets! Stuff and attitudes you no longer need – chuck em! If you hold some one/thing too dear, and if holding on is stopping you from growing, it’ll likely leave now. It’s for the best, even tho’ it may not feel like it. Like losing your blankey.
Taurus (4/20-5/21): The harder you hold on, the greater the force you attract to set you free. While where you are now may be nice, you must move to grow. In other words: to get what you want, it may feel like you’ve got to give up what you’ve got. But that’s just an illusion. Go for it!
Gemini (5/21-6/21): Innovations in your career, ready or not. Your S.O. may have issues with your career choices or your relations with those in authority may get intense. Be creative here. What can you do that perhaps hasn’t been done before to make it better for everyone?
Cancer (6/21-7/22): What you’ve always believed … You may become aware of your beliefs (conscious and un) just because it’s time for a change. If others in your workplace are in conflict, check to see if the issue is related to what you are experiencing inside. Aha… self awareness!
Leo (7/22-8/23): Ah intensity. It is what makes you feel more alive – by bringing you closer to your edge. Time to bust out of the humdrum and predictable. Boldly (is there another way?) go where you have not been before. Bring your light into the dark, and the dark into your light.
Virgo (8/23-9/23): Unusual relations with normal folks; usual relations with unusual people; or unusual relations with unusual people. However it manifests for you, the people with whom you associate reflect your inner need to be free to be. Intense weekend!
Libra (9/23-10/23): Romantic/artistic dreams & visions. Play, but don’t commit. Arguments among siblings or within your community make you ill. Shake up your work routines! There have got to be better ways for you to do your work. Inner irritability shows up in the digestive tract?
Scorpio (10/23-11/22): The energy is intense, just how you like it. Money or other resources are the battlegrounds with your kids or lovers. You may be surprised at how much you want something different from your sweetie. Single? Someone new sets you free!
Sagittarius (11/22-12/21): Your relations with a parent figure push your buttons. Seems like just being you challenges life on the home front. Whatever the issue is, you need to tell yourself (and others!) “That was then, this is now.” That’s how to accommodate growth.
Capricorn (12/21-1/20): Friends or family in crisis and you have to deal with it. Onerous it may be to do your “duty,” but so it shall be. A series of odd neighbors or neighborhoods; or are you needing a little variation in your relations?
Aquarius (1/20-2/18): For years you’ve been asserting your right to be as different as you need to be. Now you shake up your sense of self-worth. Get creative with the resources you have, including your own innate talents. Find new ways to use what you’ve got.
