Heading into the Week of March 13th – 19th, we are the beneficiaries of a Pisces Stellium in the heavens. A stellium is when three or more planets gather together in the same sign. In a natal chart, a stellium gives special emphasis to both the sign and the house in which they fall. With Venus’ movement into Pisces early Saturday morning, we now have Sun, Mercury, Venus, Chiron, Neptune, and the South Node all in the sign of the fishes. A Pisces Stellium is a magical time when the veil thins between the spiritual and the physical world. Now is a time when miracles really can happen. This is an image of Amma, the amazing hugging saint who embraces people and whispers “ma ma ma” in their ears. My first experience of Amma was when I had left my five-year old son in Florida with his father for a few weeks while I settled into graduate school in San Francisco. I had never been separated from him for even a night since his birth. My ex-husband took the opportunity to falsely claim that I had abandoned him and filed for custody. I found this out when I was served with papers. My ex had hidden my son and would not communicate with me. My professors in graduate school suggested I go see Amma to ask for help. I waited for hours to see her, but I was in the blessing line, not the question line. Amma, however, saw my questions clutched in my hand and made them translate. It said, “What do I need to get my son back?” She looked into my eyes and they translated what she said, “I’ll take care of it.” My ex called the next day and began negotiations. I finally got my son back by giving up all child support. That is the energy of the divine mother–you don’t have to do or be anything, she just takes care of you. This is the kind of blissful energy of a Pisces Stellium.
Major Aspects this Week
Monday brings some conflict with a Mercury/Saturn square at 12:26 PM PST. Mercury is the mind. Mercury in Pisces is a mind susceptible to influences and prone to imaginings. Saturn is inhibition and concentration. A square is a hard aspect. Mercury square Saturn could bring on states of depression and distrust. Mercury in Pisces square Saturn is imagination and idealism held in check. Just a few hours later, Venus squares Mars at 1:48 PM. Venus is the yin to Mars’ yang. With a square configuration we can expect tension and unbridled desire in relationships. Any friendships with underlying sexual feelings are liable to erupt now. Mercury also sextiles Pluto at 11:58 PM that night making for intense dreams that may bring solutions to dilemmas or solve conundrums. Early Tuesday morning Mercury opposes Jupiter at 2:42 AM, this will further expand your mind. Wednesday brings a truly lucky, empowering alignment when Jupiter trines Pluto at 1:06 PM. Although Jupiter is in its detriment in Virgo and retrograde, this is still a marvelous earth trine to build and rebuild your health and wealth. Ebertin says this combination brings attainment of leadership. Mercury meets up with Chiron on St. Patrick’s Day at 6:29 AM. This combination can reignite past wounds but, especially in Pisces bring a chance of spiritual healing utilizing the imagination and compassion.
Void Moon Periods
The Moon is Void this morning, until it enters Gemini at 2:03 PM, however the Moon is exalted in Taurus so it’s a good void. Tuesday brings a long difficult Void in Gemini from 10:03 AM until 5:57 PM when the Moon moves into its domicile of Cancer. It is best to take it easy and stick to listening and gathering information rather than gossiping and creating problems. Another good void arrives Thursday night at 9:09 PM in the sign of Cancer. And finally on Saturday afternoon the Moon is void in Leo from 1:43 PM until entering Virgo at 10:39 AM on Sunday. A void Leo Moon is good for play.
