Planetary Activations: December 19

Mars visits Pisces- Dec 19- 4.23 am EST to Jan 28, 2017- 12.39 am EST- It feels appropriate that the planet of action enters mystical Pisces today just before Mercury officially turns retrograde. I have natal Mars in Pisces and I can tell you he has not always been a “happy camper”. Unless we are exploring the deeper meaning of life that is. But that is kind of where I have always lived even as a child.

So what can you expect from Mars in Pisces. Well it is a completion energy. The active focus is on healing, completion, and release. On Jan 28, 2017 Mars will enter his home sign of Aries, inspired new beginnings. It is difficult to define his Pisces journey in concrete terms. Pisces is the artist, the poet, the musician, the dreamer, and the mystic. It is the sign that has a difficult time with the cruelties of life and wants to withdraw and escape. Mars, in contrast, is all about assertive action. The best way to work with this energy is to use this Mars journey for introspection and discover your Inner Sacred Center and live from that place. When you have to deal with the world you will be guided by your Soul’s Wisdom. Meditation can be a very valuable tool at this time.

The planet that influences Mars in Pisces is Neptune, also in Pisces. Neptune asks us to break free from illusion and become illuminated. The questions Neptune asks are what is true, what is not true, what can never be true. Since Mercury is retrograde for the next three weeks he echoes the theme of looking within, healing and completing, then coming into realignment when he leaves his retrograde shadow on Jan 27 and Mars enters the sign of Aries on Jan 28 (inspired new beginnings). Don’t you love how the Planetary Dance supports us?

Our Animal Totems for Mars in Pisces are Cougar, spiritual power, and Wolf, the teacher who guides us through change. I think the key phrase for this journey is “let go and flow”. The Clan Mother is Weighs The Truth, the keeper of equality and the guardian of justice. She teaches us how to accept the truth. (The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams). Kind of a Neptune echo.

Mercury in Capricorn turns Retrograde- Dec 19- 5.55 am EST to Jan 08, 2017- 4.43 am EST- We have talked a lot in previous posts about this Mercury Retrograde journey. In my life it is about daily routine being disrupted but then Mercury is retrograde in my Fourth House of home. Puppy Prince and I are on a different schedule due to a change in other family members work routines. In fact as I write this he is waking up from his nap. I will have to finish this later. Let go and flow is the message.

Since my time today is interrupted I am copying the Mercury Rx message from a previous post. I think it is important to include.

“Mercury retrograde in Capricorn more insights- Since Mercury will be retrograde (Dec 19, 2016 to Jan 08, 2017) at the turning of the year I wanted to offer more insights. I can already feel the backward energy. Can you? We entered the retrograde shadow on Dec 01 and I think this is going to be a challenging time. Remember Mercury influences our thoughts and perceptions. In Capricorn it is about how we feel empowered in the world but also taking responsibility for our actions and ourselves. Mercury retrograde (and when he is in his retrograde shadow) is the time to re-evaluate, re-access, and revise. It is not time to initiate the new. So maybe New Year’s resolutions to be successful will have to be put on hold until Mercury is clear of his retrograde journey.

Although Mercury moves in direct motion on Jan 08 he does not leave his retrograde shadow until Jan 27 so most of January is still in re-do mode. The Roman god Janus is associated with the month of January. Janus symbolizes endings, transitions, new doorways and new beginnings. He was also the patron of civil and social order. He was the guardian of peace. Janus had two faces (perhaps that is where the expression “two-faced” comes from). One face was looking back at the past, the other was looking forward to the future. But to move forward we need to stop carrying the burdens from the past. This Mercury retrograde is the opportunity to release those burdens (physical, mental, emotional) so our path to A New Way of Being is clear.

On Jan 17, 2017 Mercury Direct at 03 degrees Capricorn will trine (the removable of obstacles) the North Node (new directions) at 03 degrees Virgo (The Rainbow Bridge of Healing into Wholeness). By Jan 27 Mercury clears his retrograde shadow. New horizons open. The new doorway is there for us to walk through.”

As a footnote to the above as we mentioned Mars enters Aries on Jan 28, 2017 initiating a two year journey of inspired new beginnings.

Blessings on your Mercury Retrograde and Mars in Pisces journey. Capricorn is Earth (groundedness) and Pisces is Water (flexibility). Let go and flow.
