Mercury square Uranus
Mercury square Uranus is exact on Tuesday at 7:32 PM PST. I am traveling to Louisiana that day, but thankfully my plane will have landed by then as Mercury square Uranus’s frenetic energy can trigger vehicular crashes. Mercury is the logical mind, the go between, or messenger. Mercury affects how we process and receive information. Uranus accelerates and precipitates abrupt change. A square is a dynamic and challenging aspect that demands integration and conflict resolution of the two archetypes. Mercury square Uranus ignites sudden intuitive flashes. These flashes of insight are unsettling at times. With a square, you may feel so flooded with ideas that you scatter your energies and accomplish nothing. Watch out for new ideas, sudden circumstances, and innovations on this day and note them without trying to implement them until later. Today we have an intense Mercury/Pluto conjunction at 12:21 PM, which will bring deep thoughts and a love of mystery. Mercury squares Jupiter Thursday morning at 7:15 AM. This week is not all about the mind as Venus slips out of ethereal Pisces for fiery Aries Friday morning at 7:51 AM. Venus is in her detriment in Aries as it is opposite her airy ruling sign of Libra. Venus is all about love, art, and connection, and the sign of Aries focuses on self so the goddess of love does not function easily in this sign. With a Venus Retrograde approaching on March 4th, Venus remains in Aries until April 2nd when she retrogrades back into Pisces, and then reenters Aries on April 28th, after stationing direct on the 15th of April. Venus stays in Aries until June 6th when she moves into another home sign of Taurus. Get ready for your love life to turn passionate and impulsive.
Void Moon Times
We have one long difficult Void to watch out for this week. On Thursday, Groundhog Day, the Moon goes Void in Aries from 8:50 AM until entering Taurus at 5:50 PM that evening. Void Moon in Aries is irritating, impulsive, hasty, and rash. Well Moon in Aries in general is all of these things, however the action of the Void is to promote inaction, which doesn’t sit well with Aries. The best use of this energy is to find a way to expend the energy, clean house if you must, or let your mind roam free with a brainstorming session. Have a lovely week everyone!
