Saturn retrograde. What we’ve consistently persisted in building and accomplishing, will slowly start to grow exhaustingly heavy with Saturn stationing retrograde on Saturday, March 14. Saturn is the great disciplinary for responsibily and inner strength, which is also connected with rules, duties, tradition, ties that bind, self-discipline, restrictions and consequences. Whatever we’ve been carrying to enforce conditions, will finally start to show it’s age by weighing us down. Perhaps a few of us were reminded of this from the hard dose of reality from last week’s Virgo Full Moon.
During the next four months; time and determination slow down, while physical and financial manifestations casually pause; for a deep inspection. The foundation of current projects will decelerate, forming delays. Obstacle courses, detour signs and limited access are a part of this transit. This can cause much frustration as rebellious Uranus and aggressive Mars transit Aries.
The wound is the place where the Light enters you. Rumi
During this ‘waiting period’, pessimism, tiredness and a heavy fatigue can develop. We’re encouraged to step back from what we’ve been dedicating ourselves to, to re-appraise and re-regulate the quality of our efforts. Re-secure, re-blueprint, re-landscape, restructure, and rebuild. Quality over quantity. This is an opportunity to re-fix what has been weak, broken or largely outdated, without too much physical exertion – by working smarter. And our fear will dictate if any corners shall be cut.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in the moment of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. Martin Luther King
Uranus square Pluto. While the current Aries season has an excellent reputation for warrior pursuits and highly flammable activity, combustible energy could set off some grand finale fireworks with the Uranus/Pluto square on Monday March 16. This is the last aspect of the seven earth-shaking series, which began back in 2012. Uranus rules change, awakenings and truth. Pluto rules transformation, destruction and regeneration. This powerful square influences breakdowns, break-ups and breakthroughs, which has the potential of being heightened from the high lunar energy of Friday’s Solar Eclipse. An old way is being destroyed, similar to the catapillar who became a butterfly. Something that we’ve strongly attached ourselves to will be breaking away, now with both planets direct. We’re evolving for a new freedom, which brings new life. Unexpected shocks and surprise changes can be delivered this week through a new form of truth, enlightenment, unusual messages from strangers or higher frequencies, internet interuptions, weird disappearances, odd buzzing in the air, unusual earth vibrations, issues with electrical wiring, fires, unpredictable weather, freaky experiences with computers, vehicles, heavy machinery, and technological communications.
To straighten the crooked, you must first do a harder thing – straighten yourself. Buddha
