Mars/Uranus, Mars/Pluto, Mercury enters Pisces, Saturn retrograde, Uranus square Pluto, Venus enters Taurus—this is astrology language describing significant cosmic events occurring this week. They signify intensity; portend inner and outer significant changes in our world, changes that bring about a new world order (esoteric words), a new culture and civilization. It is a long, drawn out process. Our senses will be affected. We will be tested. No one is unaffected. As Mars, Uranus and Pluto meet, fiery exchanges may occur interpersonally and globally. Saturn retrograde with Venus entering Taurus attempt to stabilize us. The planets circling the Sun stream energies into Earth that propel humanity forward. They are potent yet neutral. The character and consciousness of each of us depends on how we receive and are influenced (act out, react, respond, stay poised, etc.) by the energies. There may also be increases in geological and political (both Ray 1) events.
Since June 24, 2012 until now, the major planets of change (Uranus) and transformation (Pluto) met four times in the sky. They meet for the last (fifth) time on March 16—Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn (15 degrees). Squares intensify energies, calling for directional change that anchors new realities.
Responses to these planetary influences are dual—war (Middle East), ongoing protests, killing and violent conflicts along with examples of goodwill and demands for negotiation and peace. Extremes are everywhere.
We must adapt, remaining poised at the apex of the triangle. Then we can be of service to those in need. We realize the needed world changes are occurring, a new cycle of life eventuating. We continually recollect the need for poise. (Read more at nightlightnews.org.)
Esoteric Astrology as News for Week of March 11
Aries-March 21–April 20
Most don’t recognize that there are traditional, stable, responsible and detailed aspects to Aries. These virtues help you become successful in all endeavors. You recognize these qualities when assessing your personal value and worth. You know it’s not how much money you have or make. It’s more about perseverance, reliability and being steadfast when encountering challenges and adversity. True self value is your new task.
Taurus April 21–May 21
Your patience and deliberateness are how you assess everything, moving step-by-step with steadfast yet thorough care. You have a visionary illumined mind. Taurus is influenced by the Pleiades, stars Aldebaran and Alcyone, source of the Buddha’s wisdom. With monetary situations you’re instinctive and intuitive (Taurus gifts)—apparent with a partner, in August, as Venus retrogrades.
Gemini May 22–June 20
Your work in the world must align with your values. Gemini is a complex, dual sign, with a fluid mind. All information is first filtered through your emotional (astral) body which must be clear, pure, with no judgments or opinions. This must be developed. You’re the sign of hidden treasures. Security for you isn’t money or wealth. It’s emotional ethics and whatever you love.
Cancer June 21–July 20
You’re challenged to emerge from under your protective shell, have a sense of adventure, step beyond comfort and tend to things more on the edge. Connect more deeply with others, creating heart-to-heart contact. This will further a sense of love, of self-expression and creativity, things you quietly seek. It’s also important for you to have some fun. What would that be for you?
Leo July 21–August 22
Most Leos are charming. Some are hidden. But all Leos are magnetic—important to understand as magnetism attracts others to you. When aware of this you will either be kind and compassionate or you will create fear in others. Leo is also powerful. Power must include love, or it destroys. People encountering you seek light, intelligence, vitality, a certain discipline, direction and willingness to Love. Do you have (and understand) these qualities?
Virgo August 23–September 22
Along with your excellent qualities of order, organization and disciplined list making (all things Pisces longs for), you seek peacekeeping skills. All Virgos learn refinement and how to act with goodwill, which creates right relations. It is good to know these are the vital life-giving seeds planted within all Virgos that lead later to the art of cooperation, conciliation and negotiation. Virgos are learning the gifts and skills of Libra.
Libra September 23–October 22
The smile in your eyes invites others to share about themselves, their joys and sorrows, and to be friends with you. The soul of Libra offers fairness, justice, openness and kindness. If not yet within this expanded soul reality, visualize yourself stepping into it. The results will be happiness at first, then joy. Concerning money and resources, the boundaries you have created to protect yourself from loss become more loving.
Scorpio October 23–November 21
Most Scorpios are aware that whatever they do often challenges others. Are you aware also that this is your task. As you’re constantly challenged to transform and regenerate, you also ask (demand) this of others. A life of such intensity needs consistent times for rest and retreat—to gather strength, rediscover inner meaning and purpose. Only a few know, through constant little deaths, like a phoenix flying out from fire, that you’re also a visionary.
Sagittarius November 22–December 20
Although you usually view life with broad hopeful optimism and because you’re an imaginative thinker who sees signs and reads oracles in every situation, you also have a sense of being duty-bound, responsible, traditional and conservative. These gifts hide behind Sag’s constant enthusiasm. Working under rules and regulations, you have a very serious side. This you must begin to value. It’s your discipline and your wisdom.
Capricorn December 21–January 20
You exhibit great control, discipline, structure and reserve, often playing the role of the parent or wise one. Traditions are most important either following or creating them. But there are valuable parts to you – being progressive and inventive. Here you enter the future, being different than most. Often people can’t understand your abilities to change quickly and to offer everyone freedom to be (you and me).
Aquarius January 21–February 18
It’s important to acknowledge that you, like the planet Uranus, are different than most. Aquarius streams through Uranus and both influence you. Uranus is tipped on its side, its atmosphere is arranged in layers of clouds, its magnetic tail twisted into a long corkscrew, the source of its magnetic field is unknown, it’s blue/green, has a moon, many rings and satellites, seventh planet from the sun and third largest planet in the solar system. This unusual planet rules your life. Value and identify your differentness (as unique and beloved).
Pisces February 19–March 20
The two signs most misunderstood are Scorpio and Pisces. Often the fish is seen as wandering about, a bit too idealistic, too sensitive, confused. In the outer world you can seem lost and dreamy. But there’s much more to Pisces. You’re brave and courageous when someone’s in danger. You stand for the downtrodden and see everyone’s innate gifts (which others cannot). When saddened you fall into despair. When spontaneous, light fills the air.
