Whatever this past weekend’s full Moon stirred up will take a few days to settle down. Though decidedly lighter than last week’s waxing Moon aspects, there’s a smoldering quality to most of the week’s astrology. That said, the Moon is now waning and several celestial bursts of inspiration are on the way. Most significantly amongst them, on Saturday Mercury will trade the ambiguity of Pisces for the impetuousness of Aries. That bold stroke alone will help us take a fresh look at some new opportunities. But first, Mercury has a meeting with Neptune on Monday.
Mercury in Pisces
This week a sequence of planetary squares and opposition will foment a series of struggles. In the wider context, we are heading into the revelatory force of a full Moon in harmonizing Libra. But before we receive its prized equilibrium and the restoration of peace, we’ll have to work through some serious discord, in one form or another. No matter the modality, cardinal, fixed or mutable, the call for resolution will be constant and pervasive, as conflicts will present themselves in a variety of manners and venues.
This week will see Mercury delve into watery Pisces while the Sun and Venus venture into trailblazing Aries. Monday morning’s upbeat sextile between the budding Aries Moon and optimistic Jupiter sets the tone for a week brimming with productivity and encouragement. Aries is all about bold exploration, and Monday’s Moon will give us a sample of the incoming transits. However, Mercury’s descent into reflective, relaxed Pisces, on the 15th, will subdue some of the ferocity, at least until April 3rd when the Messenger also enters the cardinal fire sign.
If the first two months of 2021 have brought their share of fatigue or a feeling of being burned out, relief is on the way. This week four planets are offering a retreat from all of the electricity that’s been surging from Aquarius and Uranus. Artistic Neptune will make exact conjunctions with the Sun on Wednesday and with Venus on Saturday. In between, the Moon will slip into Pisces on Thursday morning for a two-day rest.
Mars’ move into Gemini on Wednesday and Mercury’s conjunction with Jupiter on Thursday are this week’s highlights. But its real cat amongst the pigeons is the seemingly innocuous Moon. La Luna will instigate commotion amongst the fixed and mutable signs beginning on Tuesday night, when she slips into passionate, secretive Scorpio.
