Weekly Astrology Forecast for Creatives | March 1st - March 7th, 2021 - third chances, unexpected benefits, waking up to the facts, a turning point, new movement, the pace quickens



OK, what a week - we are really leaning into the future now. Let's dive right in!

TUESDAY - Mercury trine North Node

WEDNESDAY - Venus sextile Uranus, Mars into Gemini

THURSDAY - Mercury conjunct Jupiter (3rd time!)

FRIDAY - Sun squares North Node, Last Quarter Moon in Sagittarius

SUNDAY - Pallas into Pisces


TUESDAY - Mercury (words, communication, ideas, children, education, local community, transportation, siblings, tech) at 15 degrees Aquarius trines the North Node (way forward) in Gemini.


A GREEN LIGHT is flashing somewhere in your life. 


This is the first of Mercury's two repeating aspects this week. A conversation/idea/information pulls things forward. An arrow at the words - this is the best choice. Well, it's maybe not that exacting, but something is a good idea here. And we will know it is a good idea because it is the idea we are having. It is what is happening NOW. A positive/forward leaning announcement. Good news. A beneficial conversation/contract. Say it again. Listen. 


FORWARD movement.


WEDNESDAY - Venus at 7 degrees Pisces sextiles Uranus in Aries, Mars exits Taurus for Gemini


Venus (our love, money, resources, values, self-esteem, women, beauty) in watery Pisces, where she is EXALTED makes an opportunistic sextile to change-maker Uranus (in Taurus, so answering to Venus). We can very easily release control/let down our boundaries and open ourselves to something new/unusual.  


What we perceive as beautiful is changing. What we love is changing. The way we view and make and hold onto our money and resources is changing. Our values are changing. What we need to feel safe/secure is changing. 


Pisces changes are gentle. Uranian changes not so much. But beneficial Venus (through her rulership of Taurus) has been cushioning the blows for us since 2019


(yes, this is what cushioning looks like, go figure, I expected something, well something a little more cushiony actually), 


but she isn't always in the soft environment she is now. So now, the change actually is cushiony. 


In Pisces, change happens slowly. Our attachment to what is no longer needed kind of drifts away. "Oh did I want that? I can't remember anymore". Our acceptance of something new and unusual or something futuristic/liberating is much smoother/easier to absorb in boundary-less Pisces. Good energy for trying a new look, a new way to make money, meeting someone new (and different). And keep in mind, Venus is EXALTED in Pisces, I know I said that already, but really can't say it enough - so at her most attractive.


This is also the day fiery Mars leaves Taurus, where he (as we) has been kind of grinding his heels, and been in a kind of warrior mode protecting what we value. Now, he moves into energetic/frenetic mental Gemini. Mars in Gemini will have us running here and there. We can walk and chew gum at the same time now. More than one move is possible/more than one direction at once. This is the energy that loves multi-tasking. Keep in mind, too many balls in the air (especially during Pisces season), can be an exciting thing, until they are all in a pile at our feet. If everything is equally important than nothing is really important. Skills to prioritize and stay on track will come in handy. Mars will be happier in Gemini than in Taurus because he needs to move - and so do we now. 


With Mercury (Mars in Gemini is answering to him/her) covering old ground until he comes out of his retrograde shadow on March 13th - alot of our energy could be spent on old situations for awhile. So, maybe we can say/do it differently this time. 


Watch for flashes of temper and tricky situations to come and go quickly. 


What is that old expression - don't get too worked up about the weather because it's about to change. With a mutable Sun, Mars and Venus, well, that's a good way to look at life right now. Stay flexible. Things are in flux. Mars will be in Gemini until April 3rd.


THURSDAY - Mercury at 17 degrees Aquarius meets Jupiter


Mercury (our thinking, ideas, communication, local community, education, children, transportation, tech) meets Jupiter (expansion, luck, wisdom) in Aquarius (the future, tech, groups, causes, individuality). 

This isn't our first rodeo. 


We lived this aspect back on January 11th, 2021 when something expanded -


here is what I wrote back then, this was the week we were talking about 'the change that was worth the trouble'  - "GOOD NEWS. Lucky conversations/ideas. Being in the right place at the right time. Saying just the right thing. Whatever is going on now brings the opportunity to heal very old and very deep wounds. Chiron sextiles are one of the major stories of 2021 and having this one happening as Mercury and Jupiter launch a new/hopeful story is a good thing".


Then Mercury met Jupiter a second time on Valentine's Day when Mercury was retrograde


(at 13 degrees Aquarius, here is where things may have retracted a bit or we might have been looking under the hood/going back over something, we had more information - things maybe weren't as good/or as bad as they seemed back in January).  Their third meeting is today.

In the United States we had Trump getting impeached at the first pass last month (Pelosi announcing intention), then his acquittal at the second pass this month and now on the final pass, he is speaking at CPAC (annual Conservative Political Action Conference), so back on the center stage. Does it matter? It might. I noticed on Election Day 2024, transiting Jupiter is exactly conjunct his North Node. I. Kid. You. Not. There is alot of ground to be covered between now and then though. We have to trust this ride we are on, there's no comfortable exit and I suspect our ticket is not refundable.

Anyhoo, let's pull this story back to OURSELVES.


Because Mercury meeting expansive Jupiter again - is a second THIRD chance for all of us, too. 


Third time's the charm, baby. Think BIG. Think FUTURE. 


This is good news/confidence boosting words - maybe something that has been in play/on our mind since mid-January(?) - well here is the confirmation, more grounded in reality now, about this OPPORTUNITY and the REAL START of this Mercury/Jupiter in Aquarius story.

FRIDAY - the Sun at 15 degrees Pisces squares the North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sag, Last Quarter Moon 15 degrees Sagittarius

Well, the week can't be all puppies and cotton candy. 


Here's a block/crisis/reality check that must be dealt with before we can move forward. 

The North Node is in factual (but local, think - small), communicative and flexible Gemini, this, and your natal Gemini house theme, is your way forward. The Sun, in imaginative, spiritual and connecting/compassionate Pisces is our fuel to get there. Now, we are at some kind of choice point/turning point. Are we looking with our 2020 (!) hindsight or with our rose-colored glasses? Are we going with the facts or still escaping into lala-land? Are we making the call, having the conversation, using our words or are we going back to sleep/Netflix? This might not be so cut and dried because with Neptune squaring the Nodes, the facts are slippery, but are we moving toward the future? Or the past?

With TWO important aspects to the Nodes this week - it might be a good time to re-read THIS.

At the same time the Sun has reached an important decision point, the Moon is having her own crisis. She reaches her monthly last quarter square. This is the Moon in Sagittarius square the Sun in Pisces. This feels a bit like 'hope fading', but maybe a desire for more/better makes us question what is unrealistic/fantastical. 

THIS IS REPEATING the Sun's square really. Time to wake up from the delusion/paranoia and look at the big picture AND the nitty-gritty facts.


SUNDAY - Pallas leaves Aquarius for Pisces

More Pisces! 


With Pallas in the watery/intuitive realm of Pisces - we get smarter using our imagination, meditation, prayer, our dreams, music, our proximity to someone else's wisdom - yes, osmosis, I'm talking tactical/useful osmosis. Inspiration. Intuition. We always have access, but now we can make some calculated use of it. Our Pisces natal house, normally a kind of free-floating place is now home to our wise warrior energy. Write down your dreams. Get some extra sleep/into the water/escape as needed. We need to be able to go with the flow/release our grip on the solid/here and now. Pallas will station retrograde in Pisces (27 degrees) in July and not direct until November (9 degrees) so will be in Pisces for the rest of the year. 


The fly in the ointment, and there's always a fly (even in the winter) and always some ointment (even as the store shelves clear) - Pallas's vision in Pisces can be a little too fuzzy. Objects can be closer than they appear. We might see patterns that don't exist. Connect unconnected dots. Pisces rules things that spread like viruses and we now have our wise warrior woman here until 2022 (a good thing I think, but we'll just remember the whole thing about connecting unconnected dots) plus our Pisces house (we had Mercury and Ceres playing tag team here in 2020) smartens up. 

Again, this is kind of reinforcing yesterday's WAKE UP/SMARTEN UP aspects and giving them a longer playing field.

xo all

please excuse any typos, each time I re-read I find another one, and it's too late for coffee ... also make sure you are getting enough rest/sleep now - we might all be more tired than usual as the Moon wanes toward the final New Moon of the astrological year (the final 23 degree New Moon!) on March 12th ...
