Today Mercury stations to go retrograde (important to communications) and Uranus shifts into Taurus (finances, markets,technology) early Wednesday. These transits are leading up to a very sketchy Spring Equinox in DC. See the chart above with Mercury retrograde in Pisces, where this planet ruling over our thinking is at its least logical. Mercury is also conjunct to Neptune (the trident) on the Descendant. I would be hard-pressed to find a more confusing, mind-swirling and inaccurate vibe this chart delineates. I would see it largely in terms of communications we hear in proliferating stories emanating from the mass media. How much of these stories produce a drug-like (Neptune) dependency on hearing more and more of the same narratives that scarcely ever move forward or make a difference?
Look to see where you may be perpetuating a dream like mind fog in order to escape reality, as both of these placements indicate. Jupiter making a square angle (challenge) to both the Mercury Neptune and the moon in Virgo here imply a magnification to the messages we both get and give. On the positive side, this is good for pr if you have the goods to back up your message!
Double check your work, as always, during this Mercury retrograde, and re-work contracts and anything in writing before you publish or sign. Wait until after Mercury goes direct on March 29th to avoid problems and having to re-work commitments or contracts after-the-fact.
There is an emphasis on partnerships in this chart as well, which I should mention applies to the coming Spring season. Also – there is a grand earth trine in this Equinox chart, so look for opportunities to work with the issues and energies brought up from the January eclipses that direct a lot of the focus now from the January Cancer & /Capricorn eclipses.
Uranus enters Taurus, and I see this as a flip for better or worse, depending on the recent trajectory of issues on the areas of finance, income and personal values whether in your personal life or on the greater life stage. If you have not valued your worth as highly as you should, this period is a time when you will break out and expect more for your efforts. This can apply to the area of your chart where Taurus sits, so think of it as a new cycle beginning where you can look for stagnant areas where you can revolutionize your approach. Uranus spends about 7 years in each sign, so it will be in Taurus until 2026.
Jupiter still in its own sign of Sagittarius continues to add optimism and opportunity to the areas where this transit occurs in your chart, your business’ chart , in your relationship charts etc.
