Green Means Go

The energy doesn’t always work in your favor.  You may want something to happen and you want it to happen now, but the universe has applied the brake.  No matter what you seem to do nothing is moving forward, but there will start to be some motion again as Mars will station to go direct on January 12 at 3:56 pm.
 
Mars has been retrograde in the sign of Gemini since the end of October.  The planet of action and competition has been restless, social, and expressive.  Because of the airy nature of Mars, it seems like there’s just been a lot of talk and not much is happening.  It has been difficult to just get done what you need to and any changes that you wanted to make were put on the back burner until a better time.  Well, that time is coming. 
 
Mars will start retracing its steps and going back over those ideas and start to come up with a plan to go forward.  Mars will join the ranks of the other direct planets and once Mercury stations retrograde on January 18, it will be full steam ahead and you’re ready to go.
 
Review what you’ve been working on and decide whether you want to move forward or if the plan needs a little more time to percolate.  There’s nothing wrong with taking a little time to think it over, but sooner or later, you have to just go. 
 
Venus in Aquarius will square Uranus in Taurus on January 14 at 8:22 pm.  Spend some time with your friends or community, there may just be an aha moment that takes things in a new direction.

Dreams vs. Illusions

What are you dreaming about right now?  Are you seeing it clearly or is it a little bit foggy and out of focus?  It may be hard to tell this week with the Sun in Sagittarius squaring Neptune in Pisces on December 14 at 12:10 p.m.
 
Sagittarius is the sign of enthusiasm, hope, and optimism, but can also be the sign of being frank, outspoken, and exaggeration.  Pisces is the sign of compassion, mysticism, and spirituality, but can also be the sign of illusions, escapism, and deception.  Those two signs are creating conflict this week.
 
If you are able to take the struggle of last week and look beyond the illusion and frustration, you may start to see the bigger picture of what you want.  Squares are an opportunity to show you what you truly want.  You don’t discover what you want when everything in your life is going perfectly.  You tend to find out what is important to you when life isn’t going your way.  It’s human nature to want what you don’t have and to overlook what you do. 
 
You may feel overly optimistic and that you can solve anything.  If you decide to explore, remember to take it slow and examine whether it is something that you truly want or you just think you want.  The old adage of being careful what you wish for could be an issue right now.  Think about it.  Sleep on it.  Don’t act impulsively.  If you do act impulsively, you could either regret your actions or have to make another decision later.  Mars is still retrograde in Gemini.  There’s a good possibility of having to take action twice.
 
Dreams are an important part of life.  Just make sure that you really want it, before you go after it.

Negotiations

Hope you had a nice break from the regular daily rhythm.  Whether you spent it with family, friends, or tackling items on your holiday to-do list.  It’s the to-do list that’s going to present you with some issues this week.
 
Mars is still retrograde in the sign of Gemini.  Gemini normally has at least two choices and with it being in retrograde, you may have four, six, or eight choices.  This week Mercury opposes Mars on November 29 at 3:30 pm and Venus opposes it on December 1 at 12:28 am.  It’s a week of negotiating between those choices.  Do you want this or do you want that? 
 
Mercury in Sagittarius can be known for its frankness, so there could also be some bruised egos amongst others as you’re negotiating these options.  It’s important to gather as much information as you possibly can to make an informed choice.  With Sagittarius energy, it can be really easy to be impatient and think that you know better.  Let that Gemini energy of curiosity out.  Ask questions.  It’s important to not jump to conclusions.
 
Mercury in Sagittarius will also square Neptune in Pisces on December 1 at 8:08 pm.  You may not be seeing things as clearly as you should in order to make a choice, but Neptune will station direct on December 3 at 7:15 pm.  Another planet is moving forward, and more pieces will come together.
 
Have some patience and remember that negotiations are essential right now.  You might not get everything you want, but you could come close if you can be open to the possibilities.

Entering the Void

It’s the time of year when you won’t be getting as much done as you might like.  Mars in Gemini is going retrograde on October 30 at 9:26 am.
 
Mars is the planet of action and when it goes retrograde it goes into a period of rest.  It doesn’t mean you won’t get anything done until it goes direct, but it will take longer to accomplish your tasks.  Maybe you need a break.  Let’s be honest, most of us need a break from all of the intense energy that has been happening.  The emotional upsets, power struggles, money issues, and self-worth drama.  It’s just been all too much.
 
This week you’re in the in-between phase between the Solar Eclipse (New Moon) on October 25 and the Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) on November 8.  Hopefully, you’re releasing the things that no longer serve you and are moving with the energy.  It’s hard to change, but the universe wants you to go with the flow.  Don’t fight the energy.  It’s here to serve your highest and best good, even if it doesn’t always seem like it.  It’s a challenge when you don’t know what’s on the other side to roll with life, but you’re being asked to give it a try.  Just remind yourself everything you want is on the other side of fear.
 
There are a lot of lunar (moon) aspects that I won’t address this week, but it will constantly draw you back to this Eclipse energy.
 
On November 5 at 6:22 pm, Venus in Scorpio will oppose Uranus in Taurus.  Uranus is trying to awaken you and help you grow.  This is the latest aspect that is helping to guide you in this direction, but with Uranus, if you don’t follow the nudges, it will eventually push you.  You may become emotional as a part of this struggle or other people may be playing with your emotions.  Either way, keep this energy in mind as the week closes out. 
 
It's important during periods of high energy to remember your methods of self-care.  Could be meditation, Reiki, exercise, etc.  It can be a challenge to fit into your busy life, but it always makes you feel better.

Challenges vs. Gifts

Sometimes life is more challenging than others.  This week is dependent on your viewpoint.  There are a couple of oppositions between the planets in Aries and the planets in Libra.  This is a tug-of-war energy.  Which viewpoint will win?  The need to be impulsive or the need to think things through.
 
The week starts off with Venus in Libra Opposite Chiron in Aries on October 10 at 9:15 am.  Venus is how you love and Chiron is your deepest wounds and how you can heal them.  Do you have wounds around love to heal?  Everyone does.  It’s more a matter of how deep they run than if you have one.  Do you allow these wounds to control how you love, or is it a chance?  You were sent here to heal these areas of your life, it is your choice if you take the leap and work on it or if you continue to let it lead you around. 
 
This Mercury retrograde has shown you where you are going next.  Mercury will enter back into the sign of Libra on October 10 at 7:51 p.m.  Have you been implementing what you learned?  Mercury is ready.  Mercury is trying to find the balance between the old and the new, the challenge and gift.  Sometimes with Mercury, it's just a matter of how you think about it.  Mercury will have its first aspect back in the sign of Libra, on October 12 at 3:24 am when it opposes Jupiter in Aries.  Jupiter is going to expand the thoughts that you’ve been having, just in case you haven’t been clear.  Planets when they’re in Libra, can often second guess themselves, and make it difficult to make a choice.  Jupiter wants to make it easier for you to see where the problem lies, so you have a harder time staying put. 
 
Also on October 12 at 1:46 am, Mars in Gemini is squaring Neptune in Pisces.  There’s a tension between remaining in the illusion of Neptune in Pisces and seeing the duality of Mars in Gemini.  Have you noticed having to take action twice?  With Gemini placements, this is a common theme.  Once you act and then you have to act again, either because there was an error or it just didn’t go quite according to plan.
 
It’s important to remember that life is all about how we view it.  Do you let the challenges knock you down or get back up?  Can you see the gift in the hard times?  It’s rarely easy to see the gift at the moment, but it’s always there lurking in the background.  Diamonds don’t start out that way.  They are carbon deposits that are subject to high pressure and heat and begin to change form.  Just in case you ever need a reminder, you can be a diamond.  It’s just a matter of viewpoint,

Who Wins?

The two signs that Mercury rules are squaring off on September 16 at 2:49 pm, Venus in Virgo and Mars in Gemini, plus Mercury just officially when retrograde on September 9.  What does all of this mean?
 
Venus in Virgo is cautious, reserved, perfectionistic, and practical.  She wants to determine the details and check items off the to-do list.  Mars in Gemini is adaptable and social, but can also be scattered and inconsistent.  Who wins Venus or Mars?  Are you doing it to be able to get tasks accomplished or are you going to be talking it out?  It’s too early to tell.
 
Mercury retrograde can have a trickster energy, and where Mars in Gemini is in the sign of the twins, there can be a dual nature to issues or you may just have to do everything twice.  When you’re able use the energy of Virgo to take your time.  Make sure to look at everything multiple times before you hit that send button.
 
The importance of astrology comes in giving you details about what the energy looks like around you.  If you’re in tune with the energy, you can often feel it, but astrology helps you to name it.  By naming the energy, you can witness those people around you and see how the energy is impacting them and their day.  You have the option to keep on your path.  Now that is easier said than done.  There are going to be days, where the energy is going to drag you in a direction that you hadn’t anticipated.  Uranus in Taurus is still challenging you to grow and throwing unexpected curveballs your way, even if it doesn’t have a specific aspect in play.
 
By knowing the energy around you, you could be the winner.  By understanding the energy it brings you a sense of awareness that could help you.  Virgo energy also has a tendency to focus on the body, so this could be a great time to begin an exercise program and get rid of some of that excess Gemini energy, and truly focus on the tasks ahead of you. 
 
The primary point of the year 2022 is to grow.  The North Node is in Taurus.  You are meant to change.  You are meant to be different at the end of the year than you were at the beginning.  The September Equinox is drawing near and we’re entering the last 2 seasons of the year.  You still have time to make the necessary changes, but the end is drawing near.

Also, there is a second sign change this week as Mercury will enter Libra on August 25 at 9:03 pm.  Mercury will be looking for peace, love, and harmony.  It wants things to be fair and diplomatic.  More of the element of air will again enter the atmosphere and help people speak cooperatively. 
 
The week will close out with two Squares on August 27.  One is between Venus in Leo and Uranus in Taurus at 12:34 am and the second is between the Sun in Virgo Square Mars in Gemini at 4:11 pm.  Uranus in Taurus has been shaking up your world and with it Squaring Venus in Leo, it's looking to shake up how you love and connect you with your heart.  The Sun squaring Mars is shining a light on how you take action.  Are you moving forward?
