As we have shared, Humanity is currently going through a time of clearing. This involves being in a state of balance, followed by imbalance, and then achieving balance again but at a higher level of awareness. This is occurring on both the individual and collective levels. Humanity is learning to balance the physical (earth), emotional (water), mental (air), and spiritual (fire) bodies. You have probably noticed yourself being triggered by a person or event and then entering a state of imbalance. As you feel and release the issues raised by being triggered, you move back into balance at a higher level of awareness. Letting go is the key to achieving balance.
This week, Mars is moving retrograde in Libra, Venus joins Mercury in Aquarius on March 5, and the Sun is in Pisces. The Moon is in Taurus on March 5 and 6 and in Gemini on March 7, 8, and 9. There will be a first quarter moon on March 8 at around 8:30 am eastern time.
While the Moon (representing Humanity) is in Taurus (earth), and the Sun is in Pisces (water), we will be presented with opportunities to balance our physical (earth) and emotional (water) bodies. Since Moon is a water planet, at times we may find ourselves feeling as though we are drowning in our emotional issues like guilt, unworthiness, pity, anger, and sadness. This can make us feel physically tired and we may experience these emotions as physical aches and pains. Keeping our chi moving and releasing blocked energy with our emotions will help us move through this balancing act quickly and gracefully.
Since Venus and Mercury will both be in Aquarius (air), our minds might be performing mental gymnastics and our thoughts seeming to move at light speed. This air can either help lift you out of an emotional quagmire or suck you further in, depending on how you choose to look at the situation. If you choose to count your blessings and adopt an attitude of gratitude, you will ride this wave with a smile on your face and come out of it with a whole new outlook on the world.
Mars moving retrograde may seem daunting at first glance, but it’s really a gift at this time because its energy is turned inward, which is where all your most important work is done. And because it’s in Libra, an air sign of balance, it can work with the two planets in Aquarius to help lift you up. The key here is to turn your back on fear. Remember that fear is not real and you will be able to make quantum leaps over any emotional obstacles.
Hang Ten and release your emotions to the breeze with Love.
After Moon moves into Gemini (air), we are presented with chances to balance our mental (air) and emotional bodies. Because Venus, Mercury, and Mars will still be in air signs, you will shift from an emotional focus to a mental one. Your body will feel more energized and any physical discomforts from the days before should disappear. However, the mental gymnastics will increase, especially if you have not been using the gifts of air to ride the waves.
When the first-quarter Gemini Moon squares the Sun in Pisces on the 8th, you may notice the mental gymnastics increasing in intensity again for a brief period.
What this all really amounts to is a gift in disguise. This is a fantastic opportunity to use that powerful Mars inward-focused energy to launch a breakthrough in any re-occurring negative or tiresome thoughts and thought processes. This is your chance to say good-bye to old thoughts and patterns like obsessive and circular thinking, dwelling on the past, judgment, manipulation, and competition.
Flipping off fear and courageously facing down old, destructive thoughts and thinking patterns once and for all will free you to fly unfettered from the chains of mental bonds and traps.
This is your chance to take wing and ride the wind. Go for it!
