Mars Retrograde in Aries
September 9th - November 13th, 2020
Astrology opens us up to
Connect with the Divine Cycles of the Universe...
Forces that are far beyond our Knowing and our Control. However, we CAN work with these Cycles-
Bringing more Grace & Ease into our Lives.
Each Month the Universe gifts us with a Full Moon! The Full Moon literally and symbolically brings Light into darkness. These big, bright Moons allow us to see in the dark. They shine a Light on what has been hidden in the shadows; Manifestations, Opportunities and Blessings as well as unresolved emotions, unhealthy patterns and where we sabotage ourselves, A Pisces Full Moon highlights to us how our work and effort has manifested. Pisces is the sign most associated with Mysticism, Magic and Manifesting. However, it is also the sign most associated with escape, undoing and the Saboteur. Pisces is the "Dreamer" sign, it reminds us that every great vision, idea, creation, business, begins with a Dream.
This week we have the Sun and Mercury in Virgo and the Moon in Pisces opposing them. This means we are all feeling the Archetypal energies of both Virgo and Pisces strongly. Health, efficiency, control, overwhelm, perfectionism, sacrifice, suffering, compassion, dreams and Trust come to our attention.
The Moon rules our emotions.
A Full Moon heightens our emotions.
Pisces is the most sensitive sign in the zodiac!
This combination boosts our sensitivity to another level!
Sensitivity is one of our most precious gifts. Our sensitivity opens up our intuitive and creative pathways, it brings our understanding, our genius and our "Knowing" to a higher level. It is crucial to protect our sensitivity (rather than block it) with healthy boundaries. Without these boundaries and protection we can be taken down by other's suffering, we can find ourselves in the position of being victimized, we can get confused, ungrounded and feel alone.
We grow and change from the inside out. A Pisces Full Moon sheds Light on what is hidden in the basement of our brains, our sub-conscious Self. This is where we store our judgments, which transmute into worries, fears and anxiety. Virgo teaches us to progress from judgment to discernment. Judgment only leads us to criticism, shame and suffering, whereas discernment gives us insight, understanding and acceptance. Is your mind going into negative thinking and worry this week? How are you feeding your fears? What steps are you willing to take to feed your compassionate, creative and intuitive qualities?
Tuesday's Full Moon will create sparks that will set us up for the Mars Retrograde Cycle (September 9 -November 13). Mars does not Retrograde very often (every 26 months), so when it does, it is carries some Karmic messages for Soul realignment. Mars is our ACTION Planet, it shows us how we get things done. When in Retrograde it shows us how we can DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY! If you were born with Mars in Retrograde, you came into this life with the intention to be more conscious, to be less ego driven. This particular Retrograde Cycle is unusual as it is in the sign of Aries, the sign Mars rules. The last time Mars was in Retrograde in Aries was in 1988 (during this cycle Mars Retrograded in Aries & Pisces), the last time it had a full Retrograde cycle in Aries (like this one) was in 1941! Mars Retrograde in Aries is about "taming the ego". Mars in Aries intensifies our Willpower and desires. When in Retrograde we are encouraged to check in with our Soul desires and Will, and to loosen the grip on our ego desires and Will. Note that if you were born with your Sun (or personal planets) are in Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, this transit will have significance to your Soul's journey.
The Cosmic energy this week reminds us that we cannot receive with a closed hand.
What are you still gripping on to? Safety, security, control? Fear (ego) tricks us into gripping these things. Pisces reminds us that it is necessary to Sacrifice (let go of) something, in order to make room for change, growth and manifestations. The shadow of Pisces becomes the Martyr, where the suffering and sacrifice becomes a mask to hide behind when we fear change and growth. With the Moon in Pisces this week we are invited to dissolve the ego and its fears into the Light. This year we have had some big Pluto transits encouraging us to face our fears, let go of what not longer serves us, re-align, open our hands,... Trust, and step towards our Soul's desires!
"True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring." Martin Luther King Jr. *Born with Moon in Pisces and Mars in Retrograde*
