Its like a “Rope pulling” of energies!
by Katharina Bless
We are in a retrograde Mercury phase for the next couple weeks and since Mercury is in conjunction with the Sun in Pisces, it indicates that we won’t be very successful with communication! The Moon in Virgo is connected with two squares to the Sun, so there is resistance to overcome. Saturn in conjunction with Mars in Sagittarius at the cusp of the two squares, won’t let us manifest plans and we might be confused about our life situation and what to do with it. You might even feel a desperation and are lost in musings about what could be.
Things that show up might look inviting and fantastic, hence, they are more or less mirages and it’s better not to go for it before the energies are more clear again. Part of it is real, but in that stage we might not be able to distinguish the real from the not real. Since also Jupiter is retrograde in Libra, it is better to look within. Things that might look great are maybe dreams we have had for a long time or wishes we have suppressed that show up now. What ever shows up, is something we still carry around and the time will approach soon that we have a chance to manifest these things. But now is the time for them to surface and not yet to manifest.
Jupiter is connected to Saturn/Mars with a half square, which shows the karmic connection of this energetic/emotional turmoil. We might get all emotional about it and feel frustrated because there is not way we can manifest it right now. One thing is important to know, that we are not our emotions and there is a way to deal with them, if we can accept that they are there! In our Wisdom Mandala* the question we contemplate for this week is about emotions. We are supposed to watch a TED talk with Susan David, (that I just watched this morning) and the synchronicity is simply mind blowing! This talk is showing us exactly how to deal with the time quality of this Full Moon! It always amazes me how accurate our work is when it comes to time quality!
What do we need to move on in our lives? One thing for sure is courage, and that does not mean there is no fear! If we acknowledge the fear, and instead of ignore it and play “ok”, we look into these emotions (especially those triggered by fear) and the situation that arises, then we can move through it without resistance. Maybe if we can accept that fear is a guide, something we need in life to tell us that there is something we need to look at or have not dealt with, then we can go beyond our limitations.
There is not much support in this chart, the conjunctions are the strongest aspects and often also the most difficult ones. It is easier to handle an opposition because we can see it. You can compare it to someone standing opposite of you, then you can see the person. But if someone is standing “in conjunction” you can’t see it and it’s much more difficult to deal with it.
Powers and energies merge and fuse. We can say that the two planets that are in conjunct become something new energetically, the sum of both of them with distinct traits. The personal planet is then overtaken by Saturn or Jupiter or by a outer Planet. If two powers join like this, the energy is stronger than if we encounter the two planets alone. For example here Mars and Saturn are fighting: Mars want to release energy, Saturn holds it back, Saturn is totally blocking the energies of Mars. They can’t run free. This gives a feeling of unease and the urge to release the blocked energies. This can be done as soon as Mars (moving faster than Saturn) has moved on, out of the 3° orb which is on April 8th. Therefore we should plan in a run or some heavy physical activity then. As long as the energy are blocked, we have to deal with this tension. Mars and Saturn often create health complication and this again is a reason to take it easy. Make sure you drink lots of fluids (to counterbalance the rigidity of Saturn) and maybe some flowing movements of Tai Chi or another martial art can ease the tension. In this time we tend to dramatise things and see them too negative. Use the mantra: “This too shall pass!”.
In the case of the retrograde Mercury over the Sun, it will take longer, until Mercury will transit the Sun after turning direct again. Therefore the misunderstandings arising in these days of this Full Moon, certain unclarity which is connected with this conjunction will last longer. Mercury turns direct on April 15th and transits back through Pisces, but the sun is moving too! Mercury will catch up with the sun again on June 6th in Taurus. This will be when we see clear and some of the things that are now arising can be seen clearly and manifested with ease!
The antagonist of the Mars/Saturn conjunction is the Venus/Uranus one. They bring a strong wind of inspiration! Venus and Uranus together are storming our mind and bring a multitude of inspirations and visions. If you are an artist, inventors and creative person, it’s good to have a notebook near by and write down or draw the ideas coming through. Since things are not completely clear yet, you might loose them and forget about it until the time for manifestation comes if you don’t ‘nail’ them down. If you lost the ideas and visuals when the manifestation time comes, you won’t remember clearly or not at all. You might be very frustrated because … scratch your head…. there was something… something I can’t totally recall… what the heck was it…??? Therefore be clever now and note things that arise.
The Moon in Virgo is supporting this process! Vague ideas or memories (from all kind of dimensions and previous life times) are coming to the surface. Meditate or daydream over this weekend and take time for long walks to inspire you in the atmosphere of quiet nature. Go away from the hectic and electromagnetic polluted cities to give yourself space. Sit by a river, lake or the sea and just dream with the flow of the water. Let memories catch up with you and process them. If there are emotions involved, look at them and let yourself be guided by them to find what is hidden behind them. Make a foot soak with a couple limes or lemons and sea salt to detox, this also helps a lot to clear negative emotions/energies.
Release and find a place to relax, work out when you feel too energetic until you are tired. You can also use creative art to release, make a sand mandala if you are on the beach or create a piece of art in the forest with branches, leaves and flowers etc. This helps a great deal, once it is made visible, and the energy is not stuck, things will flow and like a seed, in time spout and grow into something beautiful!

**SkyView Astrology (outer circle) works with the real star-constellations. Western/Tropical Astrology (inner circle) has nothing to do with the stars anymore and their 1˚ Aries is 28˚ apart from the true star constellations, the Vedic/Indian system is 6˚ degrees different. SkyView Astrology does not tell you who you are, but shows the blueprint/roadmap of one’s life and the time quality. It also is no fortune telling tool and can’t predict the future. The Western Astrology has nothing to do with the Stars, but is a method to show how the sun moves trough the season – which makes a certain sense in the northern hemisphere, but doesn’t make any sense bear and below the equator in the southern hemisphere – for more information go to www.silverdove.net
For your convenience I list the degrees of the sign and dates when the sun enters the signs:
Aries: 25° / April 18, Taurus: 36° / May 13, Gemini: 28° / June 21, Cancer: 20° / July 20, Leo: 36° / Aug 10, Virgo: 44° / Sept 16, Libra: 23° / Oct 30, Scorpio: 25° / Nov 23, Sagittarius: 33° / Dec 17, Capricorn: 28° / Jan 20, Aquarius: 25° / Feb 16, Pisces: 37° / March 11
The dates of the transition of the sun are based on the guidelines of IAU (International Astronomical Union).**
