Four on the Floor

Viggo styleYou have a moral obligation to finish the job you said you would do.
Viggo Mortensen

Viggo’s filmography is linked above, his artworks (as well as artworks of his friends) including paintings, photographs, poetry and music can be found at Perceval Press, also linked on the sidebar.  His paintings were also featured in A Perfect Murder.  I have written about Viggo before here and here.

He’s a savvy, soft-spoken traveler who prefers privacy, though he surfaces to fight (speak) for causes he cares deeply for…Democracy Now earlier this week, here.
( I will relay Viggo/Aragorn astrology throughout, note resemblance to Strider above.)

Viggo is one of five knights from The Lord of the Rings production; the others being Ian Holm, Ian McKellen, Christopher Lee and Peter Jackson.  Viggo was knighted on April 16th 2010 by Queen Margarethe II of Denmark.  This pleases me, knights are Jupiter.

Viggo horsing aroundAn accomplished horseman in his spare time, Mortensen requested Aragorn be given more saddle time than was originally scripted. He also kept his on-screen horse nearby during the entire principal photography schedule in order to ride in his off-hours and strengthen his relationship with the horse.  He also did all his own stunts in Hidalgo, including a breakneck bareback ride that even the stuntman couldn’t handle.  (Viggo has Saturn in Sagittarius: truth in the work, steady on a horse)

Sagittarius rules horses and Jupiter rules Sagittarius.

Yes, I think Viggo is Sagittarius rising, and yes, there is horse info in the GMA Viggo links above, although I am adding a recap and an addition/correction, here.

Viggo loves horses, has bought several post wrap:
Kenny (Hasufel) aka Eomer’s horse, that Aragorn borrowed in TTT
Brego (Uraeus) aka Theodred’s warhorse Aragorn set free who later found him wounded (pictured above)
Tecontender (T.J.) aka (one of the 5 horses used in) Hidalgo
In addition to Asfaloth aka Florian (Arwen rode in Ringwraith chase) that Viggo gave to Arwen’s stunt double, Jane Abbott.

Viggo’s book: The Horse is Good here.  He supports wild horse preservation here.  You can also read about Viggo’s horse filming experiences at Horse Nation here.  You can read his experiences with the horses in Hidalgo (specifically) here.

“One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master, he told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. We live as though there aren’t enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully we will get it done quicker and with much less stress.”  source

viggo chillinViggo is a late degree Libra Sun conjunct North Node of Destiny conjunct Venus (rules Libra) within a degree.  He is a man of balance and thoughtful consideration, promoting justice and fairness in all he does.  The majority of personal planets are in air, he’s a thinker/communicator.  Mercury in Scorpio is the lone personal planet water placement – perceptive and sharp, nothing escapes notice. Here lies the power of mental prowess, regeneration and rebirth, intensity of focus. Viggo is a life path Eight.

Outbound actions (Mars retrograde aka internalized, revision mode) involving observation, thinking, speaking are versatile, spontaneous yet alert to stir compassion (Neptune). Mars Rx quincunx (health/altitude adjustments) Scorpio Neptune (healing spirit conjunct Mercury) informs improvisation  aka thinking on his feet. 

Gemini Mars Rx squares Virgo Pluto – Mercury rules both signs – he knows the power of words, the transmutation they hold.  Words…what odd things…singular symbols strung together like prayer beads or notes on a scale – they form unified shapes, summoning mental images, evoking emotions that enable collective understanding.  Scorpio Neptune/Mercury/Jupiter measures words to the point of struggle, for to speak is to finitely define what is in essence esoteric, alchemical and forever in flux.

Viggo is a word wizard – conscientiously smithing his craft.  Mars retrograde quincunx Scorpio Neptune is forever making adjustments, resurrecting or furrowing the mindfield searching for new subconscious emotional reserves.  Fluctuating Aquarius Moon also supports this restless quest for information but from the mental perspective – intake and processing of moods, feelings, vibes of surrounds are highly instinctive and intellectual  in nature.

Viggo3Viggo is kind, artistic, thoughtful, informed, enigmatic, funny and quirky. He actually quit speaking for a month (4 weeks) to better understand his role as a deaf/mute woodsman in The Passion of Darkly Noon.  Released in 1995 (presumably filmed in early/mid ’94) Viggo was having a Jupiter transit to his stellium near natal Neptune with Saturn in Pisces in trine to same with Uranus/Neptune conjunct in Capricorn square his Libra Sun, Venus, NNode conjunction. Curiously, the social/outers were all retrograde mid ’94.  I knew and loved this story, but went digging up the deets for y’all, and the story is pure Viggo – read it here.

Desire to penetrate the mysteries of pure creative heart and soul (Leo) as well as higher mind and communication (Uranus) are enhanced by Jupiter (student/teacher) square Uranus in Leo (creation/curiosity/play).  The drive to experience differences and see and think through another’s eyes and experiences lends to heightened growth of the craft.  (Sun/NNode/Venus in Libra)  Jupiter in Scorpio square Uranus in Leo seeks to disrupt complacency by investigating all manners of philosophy on life and death – each deserves respect (Jupiter).  The Road – the only movie I felt was so intense that I had to stop half way through and walk it off a bit before beginning again.  That’s high praise from a Plutonic.

“Each time I make a movie, it’s like a paid scholarship to a different university course.”  source

Mercury rules eyesight, Uranus (its higher octave) rules the aetheric sight.  In Viggo’s case, Jupiter (conjunct Mercury, square Uranus – I think it’s his ruler) links the two.  He’s a philosopher grounded by Saturn in Sagittarius – he sees how ideas manifest on the material plane, it informs not only his philosophies, but also his self-discipline.

ellesar palantir
Sagittarius Saturn conjunct ascendant in good aspect (trine Uranus, sextile Venus exact) is serious about the long-term ramifications of any and all energetic exchanges.  Saturn also gives structure and support (work) to wildcard Uranus in Leo.  Uranus in Leo insists on creative diversity, fingers in all the pies.  Double fixation (Leo/Uranus) driven by independence, innovation, invention and switch-hit artistic perceptions, he’s the courageous boho gypsy revolutionary who knows that all that glitters is not gold.  Uranus separates from Leo (rules gold).  Viggo desires respect for the craft, understanding, co-operation and kindness rather than fame, recognition or piles of money.  He is a humanitarian, who cares deeply about people.  (See Perceval Press.)

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;

The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

The Riddle of Strider

For FrodoPersonal: This tiny moment above was one of my (many) favorite RotK scenes, subtle indeed.  Got me right in the feels, speechless.  I respect your opinion, but I humbly disagree.

Viggo has Libra Sun quintile (genius expression) Uranus (in the sign Sun rules, Leo)  indicating boho creative spirit expression, forming strong bonds with others – while remaining individually independent and true to self within said partnerships.

This aspect signals awareness of sensations in the aether heretofore unspoken – felt with the heart only.  The ego separates, the heart unites.  Sun is both heart and ego and both are electric – a conscious choice (Venus) resides in this aspect.

A couple of quick asteroids:
Lucifer 1930
If you have seen The Prophecy, then you know why I chose to look up Lucifer, I very briefly wrote about it here.  Damage Control: It is a representation of the fight between good and evil raging within us all.  Please also note Venus the morning star is Lucifer, Venus the evening star is Hesperus and the pentagram is the shape of the her orbit.  See it here.  Viggo has Lucifer in Capricorn, trine Pluto and quintile Venus; both exact, hence the role in the creative arts.  Note also that many astrologers don’t give account to anything but tight conjunctions for asteroids.  I pitch ’em out there for interest, flavor.

Varda 174567
Previous post here.  In J.R.R. Tolkien’s mythology, Varda is queen of the stars, aka the star-kindler.  Varda, the bestower of blessings is in exact conjunction with Viggo’s natal Venus.  This pleases me… for two reasons.
One: Varda bestows charm and grace upon Viggo through Venus.
Two: The ring (Venus rules rings) Aragorn wore was called Elessar, the Elfstone, the stone of Eärendil.  Crafted by the Noldor, it was of the deepest green and held the light of the Sun, bestowing healing powers upon the wearer.  The ring was given to him as a gift (Venus) from Galadriel (for his marriage to Arwen) at the time the Fellowship left Lothlórien.  Aragorn took Elessar as his royal name as was foretold.  History of Elessar here and here.

Gifts of Millstones

shoulders_skatz-hates-norman-reedus*Capricorn, Norman Reedus
(note cheekbones, facial structure)*

After my marathon induction into The Walking Dead, I ran up Norman’s chart since the archer, Daryl had some weird accident co-incidences with one of my brothers (the eldest).  It turns out Norman himself has some weird accident coincidences with my youngest brother as well.  For the record, I don’t want to give the impression I only enjoy Norman’s work on The Walking Dead because that is not the case at all – I enjoy the entire cast and their work immensely.

The Walking Dead speaks to me of the current aspect Uranus square Pluto all over (high octane personal metamorph 24/7), as well as my specific aspects Mercury (walking) Sun/Ura/Plu in 9.  I find TWD incredibly dense, emotionally rich, psychologically intense & surprising.  Every single episode delivers new perspectives and ideas to chew on afterwards – I love it  – fantastic work writers, cast & crew – thank you.

The Michonne scene I refer to here, for instance.
Who is the walking dead ?
Damn. whoa.
Reality check.

I was wondering how working on TWD has changed cast members (specifically Norman’s) viewpoints on life and death.  Probably because TWD changed mine – for the better.  (No deets, it’s private.)  Then it occurred to me the car wreck Norman survived in 2005 (imdb) was likely more of a catalyst in that philosophical realm.

Norman was passenger (Gemini/Mercury/3rd rules) in a car that was hit by an 18 wheeler, he went through the windshield, sustained serious head injuries and survived. My youngest brother was not so lucky, he died in a car crash and his daughter had severe brain trauma sustained from their wreck.  (She is doing very well now after years of hard work, thank you.)

I read about Norman’s titanium eye socket, and being a curious regenerative astrocat, I had to hunt up the deets to see what Norman’s transits and progressions were in late Feb of 2005.  Only then the similarities between Norman’s chart and my brother’s dawned on me, so here I am, writing another accident astrology post for Mars Rx in Libra.

Mars Rx in Libra is researching self-reliance, resiliency and balance, reconciliations, re-thinking how, where and when to re-apply force.  It is the study of creative directions.
Bringing Balance to the Force.
C’mon…you had to know I was gonna go there, right ? lol

Mars rules accidents. Incidentally, transiting Mars Rx was applying conjunct my natal Uranus at the time of my brother’s death – he was a double Aquarian.

millstone Yeong-Hao HanYeong-Hao Han

First – full disclosure: This Capricorn Rising failed her Saturn return.
Saturn was smack on my natal Aries Saturn Rx when my brother died, my niece landed in the hospital near me for months on end, while my family tried to gain custody of her. Prior to that my folks house caught on fire, and they were both diagnosed with cancer.  Pretty heavy stuff.
I could have handled it better, but then hindsight’s 20/20 isn’t it ?  My own years of debilitating sickness followed Saturn return and I have worked slowly, steadily since then to improve my mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health.
Astrological know-how has been immensely helpful along with savvy card reading, I can see hard times coming and prepare.  I know how long I have to grit my teeth and deal until the transit passes.

What you read here at GMA are gifts of the millstones.
I finally figured out how to work Aries Saturn Rx trine Sag Mars at the backdoor properly – less going on tour, more quiet spiritual work.

:::::::::::
Heads up under 30 peeps, learn your lesson from me – Saturn return will test you.
Work hard, stay clean, use your head, ask for help if you need it and you’ll be fine.
There is a Saturn return calculator on the sidebar.  (Usually around ages 29, 57, 85)
::::::::::::
BroThis is my youngest brother with snake (Scorpio rising).  I neglected to mention earlier both of my older brothers were/are archers, crafting longbows and recurves.  So yeah, weird similarities with Norman, who I hear is an excellent shot with a longbow.  I dig it.

Now, onto the similarities…
First, my brother’s natal T square + Saturn aspects:
Aquarius Moon/Sun/Venus and Mercury in 3 opposite Pluto Rx in Leo most elevated.
Mercury & Pluto square Mars (strong, conjunct ASC from 12) – Mars is focal planet.
Pluto is ruler.

Third house luminaries square Saturn in Scorpio 12th; Moon exact.
Third house/Mercury rule short distance travel.
My brother died about a mile from his house, though he nearly died years before in  Florida (Pluto 9, long distance travel) when he was 25 or so, got filled up with metal then, after that wreck.

Accident deets:
Mars Rx in Mercury-ruled Virgo applying square to Prog Mars
Prog Sun exact conjunct natal Mercury square natal Mars
Prog Moon square natal Jupiter, prog Mars
Transit Pluto Rx applying to ASC, square prog Mercury
Transit Jupiter exact natal Sun square natal Saturn
Transit Uranus applying to natal Moon square natal Saturn
Transit Chiron Rx square natal Mercury, square transit Neptune
Transit Mercury square natal Uranus Rx

Lots of squares, indicating very restless energies looking for expression.
Most definitely a time for caution, being on guard, circumspect.

norman_reedus_daryl_dixon_vest_from_the_walking_dead_2_1Now for Norman, pictured above with one of his many crossbows.

Norman reports his wreck happened when he was headed home after an REM gig during the Berlin Film Fest in February of 2005, so I ran up the progs and transits to see what came up for Feb 14, 2005.
First off, Mercury (rules passengers) square Mars can indicate traveling accidents.
Mars in Scorpio is regenerative power and transmutation, possibly brushes with death when Mars is under tough aspects and transits/progs activate them.

The likelihood of another Mars focal point is what caught my eye.
For the record, I think Norman’s a Scorp rising (puts moon early/mid teen degrees).
He has 3 deamon tats, Omen is one of his fave movies, generally known for playing killers, gunmen etc…

Norman’s natal Mars (accident) deets.
Natal Mars in Scorpio square Mercury (similar).
Mercury opposite Leo Moon (how tight this aspect ?, tricky – Moon moves quickly)
Mars square Leo Moon. (Again, tricky, but I give a wider orb with the luminaries.)
He also has Sun square Saturn in its fall in Aries.  Aries rules the head; also Germany.

Accident deets:
Transit Mars square natal Jupiter
Transit Mars square prog Venus
Prog Mercury square natal Mars
Transit Sun/Mercury square natal Neptune
Transit Saturn Rx square natal Aries Saturn (progressed Saturn exact)
Transit Pluto square natal Pluto
Transit Chiron applying to natal and progressed Mercury

There was an Aquarius stellium at the time of Norman’s accident.
Venus/Neptune conjunct within one degree; Sun/Mercury exact conjunct – Jupiter trine all of it from Libra.
Triple benefics (Sun, Venus, Jupiter) at work.
North Node of Destiny and transit Pluto in exact trine in fire signs (energy).
This is good.
A friend (Venus/Aquarius) translated for him, Norman had surgery and lives to tell the tale. Interestingly, Norman actually ditched his hospital stay early, flew back to LA to film the autobiographical short film, Meet Me in Berlin, linked below.
Interview here.

Interesting dude.
I like him.

Peace out

Michonne WDDanai Gurira as Michonne, The Walking Dead

Samari warrior woman – silent, deadly.
First things first.  MARS. 
I had to know. Here’s the deal with the blade (Mars) of her natal.  Ready ?
Mars Retrograde in Cancer.  Backwards & in its fall.

Coming from someone (me) who has her ruler (Saturn) backwards and in its fall (in Mars ruled Aries) – I love seeing someone dealing well with a tough Mars energy  placement.

Retrogrades mean the energy is primarily expressed inwardly – incubated, percolated, until perfected, then it is expressed outwardly, brilliantly.
A planet in fall is opposite the sign it works best in. Imagine energy being born into peace talks.  Compromise before action aka slowed expression.

Mars in Cancer is fire on water – obviously covert ops, work gets done via the backdoor, sidewinder.  Danai has Mars trine Uranus in Scorpio, meaning lightning fast instincts, reflexes (Uranus) powerful feeling (Moon, gut) based intel drives actions.  Danai also has Mars quintile North Node of Destiny in Libra signaling genius expression of Mars energy in partnerships, relationships.  Progression in tandem with others.

Expressing female power in all its moods and swings is incredibly transformative and rewarding.  Mars is in a Moon (waxes, wanes) ruled sign, Plutonic power is in a Venus (scales balance) ruled sign.  The juxtaposition and friction created between the hard/tough and the soft/forgiving is a source of great power and growth in Danai’s chart.

Aquarius Sun is quincunx Cancer Mars, leading to friction surrounding the intellectualizing of emotional expression and vice versa.  Expressing tribal (global)concepts, as they relate to personal (family, kin) experience requires adaptation and improvisation.

I would also like to point out Saturn stationed retrograde at 23 degrees Scorpio exact trine her natal 23 degree Cancer Mars Rx.  Changes re: work and daily routine involving long-term career that will work out well in the long run (trine).

Michonne
Incredible scene.
Sublime realization.
Well done.

Transiting Uranus (detach) square Pluto (morph) and Jupiter Rx (higher learning) in square is delivering learning curves 24/7, yah ?

Jupiter aka: satellite dish picks up all kinds of broadband static on a good day, while Rx in Cancer, in tandem with Mercury Rx in Aquarius, information superhighways are buzzing on the down low.  Sensitivities are beyond ripe, strange harvests (Jupiter is fruit) are incoming from all sectors via dark Moon (subconscious), Aquarius (society), Pluto (the masses). 
Perspective shifts imminent.

Amplification of these vibes are on deck with shifting skies clicking into place like tumblers of a tricky lock being picked. 
(Mars rules locks; Saturn, closed doors; Mercury, keys)

Mercury direct at 18 Aquarius delivers an applying trine to Mars (Rx) in Libra, perspective shifts re: aggressive communications – scales swing to find interactive balance. Particularly true since Mars Rx also shoots a square to Venus in Capricorn – revealing inner obstacles about how we have used time, where we have been a hard ass, restricting peace talks, lost our peace of mind. 

New Moon at 10 Pisces enhanced by Chiron and in trine to Jupiter (in the last few days of Rx) will lead us into full moon at 26 Virgo March 16th.  Philosophies re healing via daily routines begin to walk the talk via focused intention setting.  See your Pisces Virgo axis for more specifics. 

Saturn Rx 23 Scorpio reveals personal obstacles re: expression of radical creative power, past ego mongering; opportunities arise to streamline work routines through reviewing past failures/successes.  Bite the bullet, suck it up, dig deep into the mines again, go all heightened awareness Bene Gesserit style and transform the poison into the water of life.  [Personal: My metronome reset, on Neptuner.]

Venus in Aquarius is a fizzy little Venus – bubbly, friendly, talkative, weird.  Venus attracts by nature; Uranus separates, lives on the wild side.  Good for astrology lovers, scientists, artistic inventions, whiz-bang hook-ups with quirky intellectual types.

Desires on parade


Firebird and Phoenix by Markova Dasha

Tuesday April 10 CST, USA Pluto stations retrograde 11:25 am

Friday April 13 CST, USA Mars stations direct 10:53 pm

Prior post here (click).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pluto DESIRES.
Pluto is SEX.
POWER.
OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY.
DEATH.
Pluto is FORCE – the drag you kicking and screaming like it or not GAME CHANGER.
Pluto DELVES DEEP.
Pluto is DEFIANCE.
STRUGGLE.
Pluto is INTENSE.
Pluto rules anything small or miraculous.
Pluto may be small but take it from someone who has it hooked up with BOTH luminaries – Pluto’s packin’ one hell of a punch.  Underestimate it at your own peril.

Pluto is the light burning from behind the eyes – the DIVINE WILL.  Pluto is the higher octave of Mars the aggressor.

Mars is the PERSONAL WILL – the physical energy behind the natal chart – it is your blade, your weapon, the traditional ruler of Scorpio.

Mars and Pluto are kicking into gear this week – POWER IS FLUCTUATING.

Pluto is a generational planet, moves slowly and will stay in one sign from anywhere from 11-30 years (average 21 years).

Mars is a personal planet moves through a sign on average every 2 months.
Mars has been in Virgo since November 10, 2011.
Mars kicks the door in on Libra on July 3.
FINALLY.
Eight months of aggressive Virgo nit-picking self – flagellation will be ovah.
Hallelujah AMEN !

Not only will Capricorn and Virgos feel this shift – Scorpio (Pluto rules) and Aries (Mars rules) will likely feel it as well.

In the natal, also find any planets in Scorpio or the 8th house to see where Pluto kicks that planetary energy into high gear.  ie: A Moon in Scorpio or Moon in the 8th is akin to Moon conjunct Pluto.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  I am a late 67 Virgo stellium.  Mercury at MC, with 9th house Sun conjunct Uranus and (8th house) Pluto, Pluto trines my Taurus Moon in 4th.

Sun is the center, the ego, the spirit, it rules the heart and the creative spirit.
Pluto conjunct Sun in my experience is continual life-long ego hits – one right after another.  Sun conjunct Pluto is a regeneration of who you are at the visible level – what others see.  A regeneration of how the self expresses the creative spirit, it is WILL POWER.

Contact with Moon is just as powerful – it is POWERFUL INSTINCTUAL DESIRES and a need to plumb the emotional depths.  It is the subconscious brought to the surface to breathe deeply of fresh air and it ain’t always pretty.  We humans are a twisted little bunch ~ beautiful, but twisted.  Contacts to Moon means fluctuation of personality, family and home, restructuring of security, powerful insight into the psyche – it is emotionally wrangling – the discomfort zone 24/7.

Where Pluto lands you will always find CHANGE and MAJOR GROWTH.

Pluto in any aspect reveals a struggle, a force of atomic change that will completely destabilize and restructure that planetary energy.  Pluto rules atomics – positive or negatively charged atoms are called ions.  When you feel better after a thunderstorm, or after you smudge with sage, that is Pluto at work changing energies on a sub-atomic level.  Expect the same energies at work when dealing with Pluto and Scorpio in the natal chart.

Plutonic energies are shifting in the house of Capricorn.
Martian energies are shifting in the house of Virgo.

Find your Capricorn and Virgo houses (also Scorpio and Aries houses) and apply the below to your chart to see where you will be feeling the shift in energies.

Here’s a very general guideline:
1/7 = self/others
2/8 = mine/ours
3/9 = learning/teaching
4/10 = home/career
5/11 = personal will/ will for others
6/12 = personal health & work/ universal health & service

If you need a quick fix and release from overwhelming desires – disengage. (click)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pluto stations retrograde on Tuesday (USA) in trine to Mars Rx in Virgo and trine Jupiter in Taurus.  That’s gonna tap the primal instincts and crank up the volume on the libido.  Especially true since Moon is trine Sun and Uranus from free – wheeling Sagittarius.

Emotions and instincts are expansive and we are communicating them. Mercury is coming up to dance with Uranus in Aries again, so surprises are on the way from men in your life.  Communications with women or lovers are favored with a quintile between Mercury and Venus.

questions and comments welcomed…

Full Moon in Virgo on Thursday March 8th at 3:39 am, CST, USA.

It is a day of energies in tandem :

Mercury and Uranus in Aries
(fire- active thinking, communicating and intuition)

Full Moon and Mars Rx in Virgo
(Feelings coupled with an inward focus of personal will and desires)

Venus and Jupiter in Taurus
(earth- steady growth with $$, creativity and love)

Sun will be opposite (Full) Moon and Mars Rx in Virgo
(revelations in both the houses of Virgo and Pisces, questions will be answered regarding these houses that have been on the table since the last new moon)

Venus and Jupiter will be opposite Saturn Rx in Libra (positive co-operative change, finding balance in relationships, even if it is only something You decide for Yourself.)

Mercury and Uranus in Aries will be square Pluto in Capricorn
(Progressive ideas, changes taking place- action taken regarding long-term goals)

Venus will be sextile Neptune in Pisces
(possibility for grand creative plans manifested on earth – you have to activate them !)

Neptune in Pisces will be trine Saturn Rx in Libra. (build the dream you wish to create- be exact !)

Grand Earth Trine
On Wednesday, March 14th – all at 9 degrees – exact – 12:50 am, CST, USA.

Venus is coming to conjunct Jupiter in Taurus (benefics, both) they will be trine Pluto in Capricorn and Mars Rx in Virgo.

Grand Earth Trine energy is a harmonious, beneficial and co-operative expression of energy – the planets involved are moving energies in the same nature Earth it signifies a time for growth on the material plane.

Taurus rules finance and possessions, financial and self – worth.  Venus is love, money and creativity – it will be conjunct the planet of expansion and luck, Jupiter in the house of finance.  They are in trine to Pluto the transformation energy in Capricorn the sign of big business, career and ambitions.  They are also in trine to Moon and Mars, which puts an emotional kicker behind the Mars Rx in Virgo.

Mars Rx in Virgo energy – I have witnessed of late – is no doubt a more thoughtful, delayed Mars energy because it is in the house of the discerning eye, Virgo  perfectionism.  Instead of single-minded pursuit of one vision / one action, the Mars Rx energy I have experienced is sorted at the get go – meaning it is not full thrust in one direction, but compartmentalized prior; it feels like only so much energy is available, or allotted to each task.

Virgo is Mercury ruled, Mercury is the mind – channel it carefully as thoughts become tangible things, Mars Rx is the mind put to detail and the energy follows inward. It has expressed itself to me in fits and starts of productivity, multi-tasking and bouts of monkey mind – nip the negative and replace with positive – being flexible is key.  Virgos can be rigid, but the house of Virgo really needs to compromise with (opposite sign) and draw upon the classic Pisces surrender for this passage of Mars Rx and Mercury Rx.

Keep a firm grip on the positive and go with the flow.

Mercury Retrograde Monday, March 12 – 2:49 am, CST, USA.

Mercury going retrograde will bring it back to meet Uranus for a second time, it’s higher octave.  Gut feelings and intuition on a personal inward level will be high, revelations on the inner plane of self will be forthcoming and very enlightening.

Look to your house of Aries for more clues – Mercury and Uranus will be forming new solutions, creating brainstorms, and changing the way everything ~ eyesight and second sight ~ is SEEN.

Mercury rules maps, and Uranus intuition – follow your hunches.
Sun will be trine Moon – Venus conjunct Jupiter – what does your heart tell you ?

Mercury Retrograde in the house of Aries and Mars Retrograde in the house of Virgo brings the 2 planets into mutual reception, they will be working well together in tandem, in each others houses to find the best personal solutions to actions (Mars / Aries) and communications (Mercury / Virgo) on a personal (and global) level.

Mercury Rx / Aries is more thought out and less knee-jerk, yet still shooting sparks and taking action – Aries is the I AM – this and the house of Aries in your chart is where to look.  Mars Rx in Virgo is action compartmentalized and detailed tweaking on the mental plane.

When these two planets are in mutual reception they will be working together in your Aries and Virgo houses to streamline and re-evaluate mental and physical actions on the material plane.

Who am I, where am I going, how will I get there, and what can I do for you along the way..?

Be mindful of your thoughts, for when Mercury begins to slow and begin retrograde, its energies are in tandem with Uranus – both square Pluto the power of divine will.

Thoughts are set to manifest rapidly into the material plane.
