The Week Ahead: March 4 – March 10

Cruise ship in at Mooloolaba on Wednesday morning

My mother always says that if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all – or talk about the weather. Given that I have very little that is positive to say about the week that has just passed I will, instead, talk about the astro weather for the week ahead. In other words, I’m still in a mood and my week didn’t improve. Not only does it amaze me that I’m continuing to carry this fug – normally I don’t have the focus required to maintain any particular mood (good or bad) for very long – but this week I think all I actually achieved was a 5km walk each morning and a little too much wine each afternoon when I finally logged off from the day job.

The emails that were outstanding as at last week are still outstanding and are in danger of going so far down the list that I despair of them being seen again. Again I apologise – you all know who yu are. Plus, as I write this, it’s Saturday morning and I’m due to hop a plane to Sydney (again) in a couple of hours and I haven’t yet begun to pack.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the week ahead. Spoiler alert, it’s a biggie.

There are so many people at the moment talking about frustration, restlessness and stress. It feels as though there’s a fine layer of anger across the surface that has its roots in these 3 things. If I had a dollar for everyone I’ve spoken to over the past couple of weeks who has talked of feeling trapped, dissatisfied, taken for granted, under-appreciated, unfulfilled, I’d be rich enough that I’d be able to do something about feeling the same way about my career at present.  

Personally, I blame Uranus. He’s about to move out of Aries and won’t be back for about another 84 years. This is, therefore, his last chance to make a change. It feels very much like when it’s the last day of holidays and you have to jam everything you wanted to do but didn’t into that final day. Or the last day of work before holidays when you have to jam everything you should have done but didn’t into that last day. Or the day before you start that diet that you’ve been putting off forever and you want to binge on everything that you suddenly feel you’re never ever going to get to eat again into that last day.

That’s what it’s like out there at the moment.

Uranus is about to move into Taurus where the mood and the reception will be very different. I’ll try and get something more written about that on the flight, but for now I want to talk about everything else that is happening at the same time. And by at the same time I mean at the same time.

Within a time period of about 30 hours the following will be happening (as an aside, the times are aligned to where I live – South East Queensland – you can adjust for your own time zone in need, but don’t get too pernickety about it…):

  • 6/3/19 4.19am Mercury Retrograde at 29 Pisces
  • 6/3/19 6.25pm Uranus into Taurus
  • 7/3/19 2.02am New Moon in Pisces at 15 Pisces 47′
  • 7/3/19 11am Sun conjunct Neptune

Now, I don’t know about you, but none of this seems coincidental to me. None of it.

Given that Neptune is currently conjunct my Ascendant and the upcoming New Moon will be conjunct Neptune and therefore conjunct my Ascendant and Mercury is currently hovering conjunct my natal Moon I’m already feeling so highly sensitised that I’m running to find sense out of it – and doing what I can to escape from it. And coming from a highly sensitised Piscean that gives you some indication of what’s going on at present. 

Naturally this is all happening at a time when I need all of my senses and every single ounce of commonsense to deal with the role I’m having to deal with in the day job. Although at the end of the work day I’m looking for something to dull my senses with, I’m dulling them to such an extent that my creativity is also dulled – meaning that I’m having problems writing and my frustration at not writing is increased. It’s a fine but important line.

What’s also important at the moment – and can’t possibly be a coincidence – is that Mercury will station direct at this same point ie conjunct Neptune and conjunct my Ascendant at the end of March.

I don’t know about you but that’s all telling me that there’s something hidden at a soul level that needs to be seen or noticed or acknowledged or acted on. 

I’ll deal more with New Moon and Sun conjunct Neptune later in the week – if I get to it – but for now cast your mind back to when Mercury passed Neptune the first time this cycle. I’ll help you out – it was around the 19thand 20thFebruary.

Think also about what 15/16 Pisces represents for you. Consider what’s going on in that part of your life – the part of life ruled jointly by Jupiter and Neptune. It’s this part of life we’ll be looking at with the New Moon.

Also, have a think about where 0 Taurus is for you and what Taurus represents in your chart – and hold that thought for now. We’ll look a bit more into that over the next few days when we look at Uranus’ ingress into Taurus.

Anyways, I think that’s enough to be going on with for now – and I have a bag that needs to be packed.

Have a great week.

Oh, before I go, if you’re interested in what else happening in my world (spoiler alert – not a lot) there should be a post going live on and anyways later tonight.
