WOW WHOA WHAT WIND WINTER…WELCOME NAVIGATORS!
This is quite a week! But if you like roller coasters like space mountain it will be fun fun fun! I come from a long line of storm chasers and so I find this astrological weather rather exciting. Of course I’m not ignorant of the accompanying pain associated with these big changes, but I do believe we are ultimately headed in a more positive direction, despite the teeth rattling bumps along the way. I won’t go into specifics here because this week I talk your ear off under the card for the week, the 9 OF WANDS! Enjoy <3

9 OF WANDS
So much is happening this week! I will try to lay it all out in order. First, Juno in Leo Stations to go direct on Friday and trines Saturn on Saturday. Juno represents partnership, in Greek myth she was Zeus’ wife and was known to put up with a lot of crap. Which already calls in the card for the week the 9 of Wands. The 9 of Wands represents someone who has weathered many storms and there may be one more to tackle before a feeling of accomplishment or victory can be achieved. Juno’s station story is similar. If you have experienced difficulty in a relationship throughout Juno’s retrograde then there may be a moment (Friday when Juno stations) when you pause to reflect on how you want to proceed and what it means to be victorious in this situation. Break ups are a possible and not uncommon outcome of this transit. If this is the case, it may be helpful to note that when Juno trines stationing Saturn the following day, it indicates that a new love is just around the corner. If you decide to stay with your partner then there may be, as the 9 of Wands indicates, one last challenge before you make it to more placid waters.
I mentioned it briefly above, but the other big news is Saturn’s station to go retrograde on Saturday. Anyone who has already or is currently going through their Saturn Return knows how powerful this planet is in a persons chart and life. My brother has an artist friend who lives in Chicago and I often think about one project he did where he put a sign on a major art museum’s door that said, “Closed to rethink what we have done.” He reported that it kept the museum closed for half an hour. This is a reasonable example of how we might experience the Saturn Retrograde. Saturn represents structure, so when it goes retrograde we may find it necessary to “rethink what we have done.” Saturn is associated with time and timing and so in retrograde motion things move much more slowly, giving us more time to reflect. It is not uncommon to back out of commitments you’ve made or to recommit to things you’ve neglected. Keep in mind that Saturn deals with things in the long term so these are usually big decisions, paths that you’ve committed to.
Now would be a good time to mention that it is also Eclipse Season. Eclipse Season is the big deep clean that happens every spring and fall, allowing us to clear out obstructions and debris which prevent or inhibit our growth. The first eclipse of the season will happen next week on March 20 as we also move from winter to spring and Pisces to Aries, but I will discuss that specific eclipse more next week. There is enough to focus on this week and one of the most significant aspects I have not yet mentioned, the 7th and final Uranus-Pluto square.
The Uranus-Pluto square will be exact on Monday the 16th. Mars will energize this aspect as it is only within a few degrees of Uranus and thus forming a square to Pluto, putting more pressure on Pluto in Capricorn to change. The Pele Report this week did a good job of explaining (with humor) how this aspect might be experienced by us here on earth. Uranus is the lighting bolt, the shock of change, throwing its fire in Pluto in Capricorn’s side demanding we make changes to structures which are no longer serving their supportive function, structures which have become stifling or oppressive. The Pluto-Uranus square is a generational aspect meaning that it influences and informs a generation of people. Micro and macro we are being asked to change and change is often stressful, which once again brings up some themes from the 9 of Wands.
The 9 of Wands acknowledges the toll that stress can take on the body. It is important to schedule breaks, pauses in your day, week and month to recover from and assimilate to all the changes. Even if you haven’t noticed anything changing in your immediate environment, on a national and global scale the news has been rife with turbulence. Just reading about it can cause stress. Astrologer, Anne Ortelee said in her blog a few weeks ago that she had read an article about the brain that said our brain reads even imaginary situations as real. So watching an action movie can literally get your adrenaline going and when a movie is sad you cry real tears of sadness. Reading about change or war or conflict can also be experienced as stress in the body. So this week don’t forget to relax or enjoy yourself. This past weekend I drove an hour to the beach just to watch the sunset and eat french fries. I decided I needed a break, however brief and it was completely worth it. Consider making these kinds of breaks a priority in the coming weeks.

There seems to be no shortage of themes when we are in Pisces season, finding them feels natural and spontaneous. This week, as I began to pull the cards for each sign, I found the lyrics to songs popping into my head. Music is associated with Pisces and through out this season you may find lyrics and tunes popping into your own heads quite frequently. Mercury joins the Sun in Pisces this week, further emphasizing music as a language which may communicate more easily the things we wish to say and the feelings we want to convey.
