Funny/odd I did not know until this very day that Uranus and Pluto rule fanatics.  
I laughed.
I do not self-identify as a fanatic.

I have endured BS for years by others who do not understand why I would travel anywhere to hear certain bands so many times I have lost count. I have again endured it here at GMA because I love to explore the creative spirit in actors, directors, musicians, scientists, philosophers, etc..

I am Virgo Sun Uranus Pluto – see above.
Venus Jupiter in Leo – when I like anything, I tend to like it a LOT.
I am not without mistakes (Uranus/Pluto also rule) but I am not ashamed of loving who or what I love.  I do my best to be truthful, fair, just and kind whatever I am doing, but especially here when I write.

I have noticed the Uranus Pluto square is dragging Plutonic power-trippers from the depths of fandoms, (standoms, whatever) into unusually Uranian high gear.
See Gamergate.
Typical rants include: I was here first (Aries/Uranus) or I am older, wiser (Pluto/Capricorn), or it’s obvious/how can you be so blind, gender bias and the absolute worst: flat-out bullying and fixedFixedFIXED mindsets.

I have seen it but reserved comment until now.  The incoming eclipses & square compel me to note people are forgetting why we are all here in the first place.

The Roses, people.
We are here for the love.
Let’s not forget it.
Now go out and be kind to one another, please and thank you.

May it blow in all good company.
peace & love

Full Moon 14 Virgo
March 5 Chicago 12:05pm
London 6:05pm
March 6 Tokyo 3:00am
Wellington 7:00am

Full Moon in Virgo opposes Sun/Chiron in Pisces highlighting peace talks between the deep subconscious wound and the need for practical healing via logical, precise daily analyzation.
Chop wood, carry water.
Mercury opposes Moon/Jupiter today while Sun/Neptune quincunx them.
Change of habits, re-organization is needed.  Focus on feelings and regeneration – metamorphose habits/character traits that self-sabatoge.

Full Moons are Sun Moon promises.  New Moons signal quiet growth from intent; Full Moon fruition is harvest.  Full insight via the compare and contrast of what we asked for and what was delivered and how we feel (Moon) about it.

During New Moons we (conscious – solar / subconscious – lunar) are side by side looking into the world:  two FEELS more like ONE.  Instinct and will are a team, setting intentions for growth during the coming lunar cycle.

During Full Moons two FEELS more like TWO, because we are at odds with the other side of ourselves, at odds with the reflection of self, at odds with the OTHER.  (Full Moons are always opposite Sun) Instinct and will are in peace talks, they are AWARE of their separateness.  Understanding, illumination and growth is at a peak – knowledge courses in from all sectors.

Hope or Jettison.
Spirit of Change.
Peace talks signal reboots across the wheel where your house Virgo meets house Pisces.  Virgo – Pisces axis here.
Obstacles are found in houses Gemini and Sagittarius.  Change is made easily in mutable signs – work it !  Think universal vs personal healing, meditation vs daily routines, logic vs beliefs – the symbiotic middle ground via thought patterns, mental re-boots, polarity shifts.

Be inventive !

This brings to mind the edge of the knife (Mars/Venus/Uranus), carving away at the hidden spirit (Sun/Chiron Pisces) that is waiting to be born within the wood.  Venus has moved on from Mars and will move on from Uranus by the time Full Virgo Moon arrives, but by transference of light they all trine (Uranus exact) Leo Jupiter – surprise inspiration, love/creativity and the gift of quiet grace.  (Jupiter Rx)

Note that Mercury is out of shadow the day before Full Moon, crystal clear concepts are dawning – Mercury is exalted in Aquarius until March 30 when it whizzes into Aries. (edit: March 12 Pisces, rather) 

Know also on March 14, taskmaster Saturn moves Rx at 4 degrees Sagittarius until August 8 when it moves direct at 28 degrees Scorpio. Late Leo (and all fixed signs) people you have my empathy, but we have to go back and get something we seem to have forgotten.

We are also heading into major changes with two incoming eclipses:
Solar Eclipse 29 Pisces March 20
Full moon Lunar Eclipse 14 degrees Libra April 4
More on that soon.

peace

I mentioned in Drum of Truth we have Venus conjunct Uranus incoming !   Venus is coming up on Uranus Feb 28 – March 4.  This is a heck of an aspect when backed by Aries/Martian power.

What may we expect you ask ?  
With Uranus all bets are off – higher octave of the trickster, it’s a wildcard.

Those born with Venus conjunct Uranus KNOW it delivers a surfeit of surprises.  Wildly creative, but will not be restrained in any form or fashion.  Love comes in an incredible rush/often abandoned in a nanosecond.  Incredibly magnetic/repellant due to the electric polarities of Uranus.

See this aspect and know these people cherish change in a myriad of forms.  Radically sensual and wildly flirtatious Venus conjunct Uranus is attracted to anything unknown, new, innovative.  Uranus rules the ankles, Venus attracts, showing a bit of skin or flash here will turn their heads.

Venus conjunct Uranus has the uncanny knack of being in the right place at the right time for love/money/creative opportunities.  Due to the fact that Venus rules relationships and Uranus fellowship, these people have an aptitude for herding friends from all walks of life – the weirder, the better.

These folks are curious about love in all its forms of expression, though they can be a bit emotionally detached preferring intellectual stimulation instead.  Give them plenty of room to roam, for freedom is absolutely essential, they will not be fenced or herded.  They KNOW if you are feeding them a tired old line trying to seduce or flatter – instead, go do your own thing – works a charm !

Ultimately this is an aspect of bohemian creativity/love and that means money (Venus) is also likely to come in fits and starts.  They have a take it or leave it interest in cash – humanitarian ideals and social consciousness are at the forefront of their minds.  They create social change wherever they go.

The way to their heart/affections is through their cerebrum.

Drum of Truth

 

 

FullSizeRenderWild Wood Tarot

Many things are in unison at the moment:
Creativity/energy, affection/action, charm/risk via Venus/Mars in Aries
Spirit/subconscious, awareness/healing, ambition/devotion via Sun/Neptune in Pisces

Mars trine Saturn loves to work the kinks out, esp with Mars ruling Aries.  Saturn in Sagittarius  squaring the subconscious combo of Sun/Neptune seeks the tap-root, the wellspring, the bud of the bud.  Here we swim in the deep waters of what we need to face under the light of the Sun, but often don’t.  Healing comes in a rush with these planets at work.

Leo Jupiter Rx trine Uranus while Aquarius Mercury opposes Jupiter turns on the electric vibe, the flash inspiration of Knowing (Aquarius motto) our path though Seeing the path (Jupiter retrograde) at this time may prove difficult.  Thinking communication planets are in peace talks with each other.
Hope vs. jettison.  In fixed signs no less – not an easy answer, this one – but it will arrive in its own time, nonetheless.

Instinctively we know where we are headed (Aries) and love is in the lead.
Venus is coming up on Uranus Feb 28 – March 4, we’re all in for a powerful surprise enlightenment re: love/money/creative spark.
Roll with it….it is what it is.

Many things are changing, the Pole Star remains – guidance in tandem with those who are seeking the spirit.  Truth at the core, connection with the cosmos, a new friendship, a gift, a creation.
The Pole Star brings luck and with Mercury exalted in Aquarius we can be assured the intellectual distance from emotional baggage we need so we can hear our heart beating our drum of truth within.

Keep the faith…whatever that means to you

Pisces Sun conjunct Neptune rolls around once a year and shines a light on all matters of sensitivities and mysticism.  Sun illuminates; Neptune clouds, which I have noticed causes some astro peeps to sway into doom style predictions of delusion, deception and drunkenness.   

Hey, it IS a possibility, but let’s look on the bright side here…work the energies to your advantage.
Engage the collective emotional un/conscious via The Force.

Pisces Sun conjunct Neptune is an opportunity to reach deep into your inner dream world, envision what your ideal future actually WILL (Sun) be.
We are sparks of the God/Goddess.  
Create ! 

Make an images only vision board, an inspirational ipod playlist – very Piscean.  Sculpt with your eyes closed, send yourself reiki, draw with your non-dominant hand.  Create with a medium you are unfamiliar with.  Meditate with mudras, write songs, take pictures, swim, watch films, write poems, paint esp. with watercolors, learn sign language, take a nature hike or dance away what troubles you.  

Shine the light on those inspirations that feed you rather than try to escape this aspect through hiding out of fear with your crutch of choice.  Sun/Neptune makes emotional sense when you are experiencing it, but becomes mentally clear when the aspect passes.  

Seeing the Self (Sun) through earthly senses becomes difficult – we begin to rely more on 3rd eye.  We shift our senses to peer into higher dimensions within/without ourselves and USE them.  This aspect has arrived to help us release and let go.

Sun/Neptune creative dreams squares Saturn: fear, men, work, authority, the past, age.  Squares deliver creative tension that must be solved inwardly.  With this aspect comes a time to explore obstacles you have created for yourself.
Re-imagine and re-envision your style, this is high qi spiritual intelligence – tap it straight from source while the energies support.  

Attacking anything head-on is often an approach that will derail progress with Sun/Neptune.   If your mind floats a bit – it is meant to . . . glean the inspirational downloads for healing/creation/prophecy . . . re-focus and start again.  
Go the long way, use the backdoor, sidewind, go with the flow . . . transcend.

peace out
May the Force Be with You

Sun conjunct Neptune with Moon in Taurus means creativity, nature, daydream zen vibes strong. Saturn square Sun/Neptune faces work and mountains of it.  Keep patiently plugging away.

Moon squares Jupiter Rx in Leo throughout the day, see it – then be it.  Toro moon loves calm, steady, pleasurable pursuits.
Work it !

Hi qi draw: Wild & Free Wind Sprite – core of spirit may be lacking in joy and independent freedom which it rightly possesses.  Acknowledge it, celebrate it – no matter what others say.

Feel the wind in your face and the sun on your back today.
Taurus Moon reboots via nature and peace.

Freedom & Independence – very Uranian !
Note also (read below) Sonia is a trained scientist (video) which is ruled by Uranus.

When I was a kid, I spent most of my time running off into the woods out back, playing in the creek catching frogs and messing around in the mud and the muck.  Not a fan of Barbie.  Somehow I ended up with one ( ? ) and not surprisingly, she was prone to idiotic naked ditch dilemmas, crying for rescue from my Bionic Man/Woman or Star Trek action figures.

For the record: I do have a Venusian vibe: Libra at MC, Venus conjunct Jupiter in Leo, Moon in Taurus.  Yes to all things creative, artistic, harmonious, beautiful – but – strong earth placements deliver practical, healthy sensibilities.

I had to share this picture/video link here on GMA.  I love the simple pleasure Sonia and her mother create by upcycling children’s freakishly over glamourized dolls into toys vastly more realistic/healthy for kids.

Picture speaks volumes, yeah ? 
Here’s the video.

As an oddball sidenote: mannequins freak me right out.  Dolls are ruled by Venus and mine is an 8th house (death/creepy) Venus square Neptune (fakes).  I about jumped outta my skin once when I ran into an Iman mannequin locally.  I’m a Trekkie and a Bowie fan, so I immediately recognized her face, but I had no. idea. real people were used to fashion fake ones … until then.  eep.
