Tracing the shadow of astrology and art

Daily Forecasts

March 26, 2019

This morning at 5:01am the Moon squares off with Mercury, which is in his final degree of retrograde. Old conversations, old feelings, old dreams, fears, and old confusion may be on the table today, unfortunately, as this meeting between the Moon and Mercury affords us one last opportunity to get our wires crossed.

We’re still swimming through the Mercury/Neptune conjunction, which brings a sense of a lack of boundaries in emotional matters and how we express ourselves. The Moon squares Neptune at 6:08am and we may wake unable to shake off dreams from the night before. Our perception will be a bit off today, so take everything you feel with a grain of salt.

In the afternoon, the planet of love, resources, aesthetics, and sensual experience (Venus!) leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces, where she will remain through April 20th. With Venus in Aquarius, we were able to push the intellectual boundaries of love, of our relationship to money. Aquarius encourages us to break free of old ways of being, so Venus in Aquarius could have expressed itself as a sharp rebuke to old patterns in the way you use your money as well as how you engage in partnerships.

Venus’s trip through Pisces will be very different, as Pisces is the sign of healing, merging, depth of emotionality, and fantasy. Venus is exalted in Pisces, so her energy flows easily here, a welcome thing indeed.

Venus in Pisces is lush, emotional, intuitive, psychic, and fluid. With the planet of love and aesthetics in the sign of integration, disintegration, healing, and dreams, we’ll find new ways to connect in love, especially if those connections are empathetic, artistic, and intuitive. Not a lot of logic emanates here, but I believe this is just what we need to begin to process the lessons of this really difficult Mercury retrograde, which ends on the 28th.

In the evening, the Moon meets up with Jupiter and this hang sesh between the luminary of emotions and the planet of expansion brings us a shake or two of good luck, optimism, and generosity. We’ll be warm with our friends, and remember to be kind to yourself as well. The past few days have been nothing short of confusing, and we all need a little lift. Jupiter is just what we need.
