A great change is happening this week as we see Uranus, the planet of rebellion, innovation, and the unexpected step out of Aries and into Taurus for the first time in roughly 84 years. This is a major event and will set the tone for the next seven years. It was back in 2011 when we last saw Uranus change signs and its impact has been felt throughout the last seven years. Uranus delivers the unexpected and while in Taurus we can expect to see some innovation and, perhaps disruption in our financial institutions or significant earth-bound events. Taurus is a fixed earth sign and changes likely to occur will be those tied foundational entities. All Tauruses and fellow earth-signs, Virgo and Capricorn will be in line for unanticipated news and discoveries. Elsewhere, the cosmic energy of the week will be a balance between water and earth. Naturally, water and earth mix well together. Yes, they do make mud, but they are compatible and therein lies the harmony. Just as fire and air are compatible, the water/earth connection symbolizes a bridge towards progress. The Sun, Mercury (retrograde as of March 5th) and Neptune are all in Pisces, a mutable water sign. Whereas, Saturn and Pluto continue their slow movement through Capricorn, a cardinal earth sign. The linkage between these planets and their associated elements is one of support which is desperately needed right now. This is a complex alignment and requires an array of symbols and themes, but the most prominent is the connection between Saturn and Neptune, but also Mars, currently in Taurus, also an earth sign. Saturn and Neptune together form a responsible approach to that which is nebulous or uncertain. Difficult problems that require research and attention are likely as well as unusual spiritual experiences. With Mars involved, there may be a tendency towards perseverance, and a dogged tenacity to repair that which might be misaligned or out of sorts. Where these linkages occur in your life will depend on the specific details of your own unique birth information, but they are worthy of investigating since they can be powerful and restorative if handled properly.

We are also entering into a Mercury retrograde period commencing on March 5 and lasting roughly three weeks. Mercury is just at the last degrees of Pisces and it will reverse motion (from our viewpoint on Earth.) While in Pisces the planet of communication can cast an array of confusing and inaccurate statements. Since Neptune is directly involved in the latter part of this retrograde, we can be sure that communications will be garbled and obfuscated. Given the climate in the political arena of the United States, the term “fake news” may become the buzzword of the period. When Neptune and Mercury are involved the themes tend to bend towards the surreal and fantastical, but they can also fall into wreckless hyperbole and inflated nuance. It will be important to issue discernment in all conversations and communiques. While flights of imagination can also soar into real and imagined perception, remember that the tendency towards false narratives and skewed logic are also highly likely. Mercury stations direct on March 28 and then must traipse back over the same ground that it covered during the retrograde, so it will be in Pisces for close to two months testing our ability to discern fact from fiction.

You may be in the midst of a transition this week as conversations swirl around fantastical ideas and mysticism. The Sun and Neptune are conjunct and your imagination may soar. If you have been diligently pursuing new career options you might stumble upon the ideal job for your skill set. Be careful with details and contracts though. Read thoroughly.
Expect to see a lot of chatter and confusion when working with business associates. You may witness bouts of hyperbole and false statements made to protect or to shield others. Your motives may be unusual and revolutionary but you may be determined to pursue them nonetheless. Discussions require facts not empty promises. Check details.
Be aware of confusing conversations with people at work this week. Whether you are part of a team or under the supervision of someone, your dialogs may be a bit odd and detached. With Mercury going into retrograde this week you’ll want to get as much information as possible to help reduce the chances of misunderstanding.
Unusual comments or confusion may sway your moods this week, but not to worry. With Mercury going retrograde in your travel and education sector you may face a convoluted tangle of ideas that somehow don’t seem to connect. Since confusion is running the show this week try and find another alternative route for your journey.
You may be overly aggressive this week especially if you are in negotiations with a large organization. With that in mind you might be wise to double check all contracts or other legal documents that might be involved. Since your daily work might be involved you want to be sure you understand the terms completely.
Education and learning may be your driving force this week, but you may find that conversations with your significant partner are clouding the issue. As you try and forge forward with new forms of expression, you may find that the more honesty you can squeeze out of close friends, the better. Outside advice is helpful if it’s truthful.
Your daily routine might be a bit off this week. Perhaps you are not feeling up to par, or you are confused about a topic that pertains to your health. Be aware that what you are learning or hearing may not be entirely accurate. You would do well to redouble your efforts to get to the bottom of things.
You could be unusually receptive to fantasy this week. Reading, movies and other escapist vehicles may serve to soothe that quest for escapism in you. While you may be motivated to shake up routines, especially with your significant partner, stop to consider the long-term ramifications of such. Be aware of documentation slip-ups with a sibling.
You might be motivated to push your personal agenda on close family members this week. While you may be able to pull that off, be aware of a tendency towards confusion and uncertainty with any and all conversations that surround the family. You may feel as if you are emboldened, but your status could suffer as a result.
Mercury is retrograde in the documentation and legal area of your life so be certain to resolve any disputes that may pop up. The same is true for siblings so if there is uncertainty you might be wise to discuss the situation thoroughly. Any fact or detail that is left alone may reveal the confusion factor.
Carefully examine all paperwork that pertains to financial transactions this week. With Mercury in retrograde, it is likely that a mistake could end up costing you if you are not proactive. Business collaborators could be confusing the situation so approach carefully and with an eye on the details. Transactions made this week may need to be renegotiated.
The Sun, Mercury (in retrograde) and Neptune are all in Pisces so you may be lost in dreamland. With that in mind be careful of transactions with business associates. Some of them might have to be reconsidered, for better or worse. Try to avoid any long-term decisions until Mercury stations direct in a few weeks. You’ll be glad you waited.
