The Week ahead


 Vol. 471 update, March 1, 2008
This column is meant for people with a basic knowledge of astrological principles

New Moon Friday March 7, Mars opposition Pluto just before:


New Moon, Friday March 7, 17.15 pm GMT, this chart has been taken for Brussels. If you make it for Philadelphia the NM conjunct Uranus is at the midheaven, if you make transits around the chart of the USA (13+ Sag rising), the whole cluster in Aquarius and Pisces is in the 3rd house.

March 4 Mars enters Cancer and will oppose Pluto March 7 just before the New Moon. It is the first opposition with Pluto in Capricorn. With the North Node currently in Aquarius it may be a good idea for some  to not take things too personal this week, and not become overly emotional feeling powerless in some situations as a result. 

With the New Moon which starts March 7, the season of a rather Saturnian Lunar Eclipse ends. Saturn will be replaced by Uranus.. which means a totally different energy not unpleasant for astrologers of course.  With Mercury and Venus already in Aquarius you can sense it already. The last few Saturnian weeks I occupied with myself with trying to grasp the archetype of the Saturn t conjunct Pluto transit for those who already had their Pluto-t-90-Pluto transit and go through rather dark times.  It can feel as if even the cosmos has left you by yourself.  After many in depth stories, (and not everybody even notices this transit btw...) I extracted the archetype as follows for now: the learning process of the right to say No for your soul is in rebellion, and in that case  creates heavy circumstances so that the soul can make itself known to you in its NO. Not any longer! Our ego has drifted too much from what the soul wants maybe over the course of many years, but the course has run out, the soul sheds that kind of life, it needs re-attunement of the personality, sort of. So in the outer world some of us with this transit walk in against barriers, things fall apart, and we still may not have an inkling which leaves us in the dark for some while. Something like that anyway. 

But now for Uranus rather than Saturn with the next New Moon. On the one hand we see a cluster of planets in Aquarius with Neptune, and on the other hand the Pisces New Moon conjunct Uranus. It may have to do with the need to really become an individual again, rather than the suppression of our freedom which subtly we may feel from forces greater than ourselves (social forces).  After all, the North Node in Aquarius points the way.  Collectively times may be a bit restless, or rebellious, maybe they are the reflections of our own inability to just be ourselves, in what we say and how we relate. A lot of talk has been going on in years past that we are too individualistic but the contrary is true, we just follow the herd and with Uranus falling in the sea of unconscious Pisces...  (so to speak) where do our freedoms go?  The North Node in Aquarius is not about Leonian ego, it is about daring to be oneself, to be a true individual.  In Eastern parts of the world this process seem to be happening much more spectacularly, but they come from collectivity, in the western world we hardly seem to realize we are loosing our freedom of thought. However subtle this may be.
