If you read yesterday’s calendar entry, you are aware that Messenger of the Gods Mercury is halting its direct motion in the heavens (10:21 a.m. at 30 degrees of Pisces) and beginning a retrograde cycle that lasts until March 28. Take a good look at the following themes associated with this crucial planet—communication, learning and primary education, words and language, transportation and travel plans, business and trade, messages and paperwork, health and medical concerns, the five senses, air and breathing, wind and temperature changes, as well as acts of apparent magic, sleight of hand, and theft. Don’t fall prey to marketing strategies and sales pitches that aim at hoodwinking you to sign an agreement that will end with regret.
Some ten hours earlier there is a 6-minute void lunar zone that starts at 12:06 a.m. and ends when the moon enters Pisces at 12:12 a.m. Be aware that the dark-of-the-moon monthly cycle that always occurs shortly before the new moon is building all of today since the next solar-lunar rendezvous occurs tomorrow. In addition, it is realistic to anticipate a possible rise in anxiety due to the sun forming an abrasive, 45-degree aspect with idiosyncratic and unconventional Uranus (12:40 p.m.), plus Uranus shifting from the end of Aries to the beginning of Taurus at 12:28 a.m. tomorrow.
Another source of either clarity or uncertainty is a fairly rare Vesta-Neptune convergence at 17 degrees of Pisces (5:10 p.m.). Safety and security matters, insurance coverage and investment planning, sisterhood and fellowship gatherings are definitely in the cosmic spotlight for everyone now and on Wednesday.
