Hello and Welcome to my weekly Star Cast, where I bring you the update on what’s happening in the world of astrology – and how you can apply the wisdom to enrich your life here on earth.
My key phrase for this week is: BOLO – Be on the Lookout
This week delivers a dynamic conjunction of Uranus and Mars – exact on Wednesday, February 13th. When these two are joined, rebellion is in the air. The issue becomes: what is your price for freedom?
Mars signifies physical energy and vitality, and Uranus delivers sudden actions. Both of these qualities have a positive side, and indeed, Mars conjunct Uranus can add the impetus to accomplish great tasks.
The problem comes when one is dealing with suppressed or shadowed rebellion. Mars also fuels aggression, and Uranus sometimes delivers the last thing you thought you wanted when you least expected it.
So, generally, this is a week to remain calm, be mature, and walk your talk.
When you’re not clear about your motivations, the unpredictable side of this planetary conjunction can manifest. For example, you want to be free of your job; but if you’re holding on to resentment and anger your freedom may show up as time off due to an accident.
Mars conjunct Uranus is also a classic driver of rash behavior. You may be ready to tell someone off, but rather than an attack, why not choose a time for honest and clear communication that honors both parties.
Mercury, the planet of communication, entered watery and intuitive Pisces on Sunday, February 10th. Here, logical Mercury has a chance to surrender to his softer side. Mercury in Pisces favors creativity. Surrender to the beauty of music and poetry to temper the crosshairs of Mars and Uranus.
This week does mellow out by Friday, when the Cancer moon comes in to break the tension. And, again on Saturday, the moon really settles in to modify and soothe the pressure. All in all, we’re building up to another Supermoon Full Moon next week on February 18/19th at zero degrees Virgo.
Virgo is a sign of refinement and purification; looking forward to this elegant Full Moon.
Wishing you many blessings as you reach for the stars!
