Mercury turns retrograde on March 30th @ 25° Aries with direct station occurring April 22nd @ 13° Aries. The current phase of retrograde comes to closure on May 11th when Mercury clears the shadow of retrograde.

Representative of our thinking aptitudes and perceptions, Mercury rules all forms of  communications, methods of transport and commerce. During retrograde periods glitches can occur within communication systems, modes of transport and commerce related dealings that require us to slow down and reassess our approaches and choices.

On a personal level cognitive skills are often challenged and making decisions generally requires extra patience and time. While MercuryRx periods are generally not considered favorable for making contractual agreements or committing oneself to new projects for anything begun from scratch during this time often needs to be reworked later or just doesn’t get off the ground at all. This period is conducive to putting efforts into ongoing projects through a whole slew of “RE-words” such as:  reorganize, reedit, renegotiate, re-navigate, reformulate, reconsider, redefine, reprocess, reinstall etc, etc.

When faced with retrograde related snafu’s sometimes the best choice is to just release and relax until the “roadblocks” clear! (more…)

The Sun enters Aries on March 20th, 2011 @ 7:21 pm EST, announcing the Vernal-Spring Equinox in the northern hemisphere and ushering in the astrological New Year. This day is celebrated as the Return of Light for the vernal equinox marks the point where the days and nights are of equal length, with the days continuing to build in duration and the nights shortening their span, until the time of the Summer Solstice in June. It is during the vernal equinox that we seed our intentions for the following year and the energies presenting at the point of the Sun’s annual ingress of Aries lends a snapshot look of the trends and tones for the subsequent 3 month period leading to the Summer Solstice.

The Vernal Equinox of 2011’s stand-out feature is the occupation of the Aries Point by both the Sun and Uranus. Uranus transits Aries every 84 years and while some of the previous cycles within the past few hundred years have found Uranus conjunct the Vernal Equinox Sun at Aries Point within a few degree’s, this is the first Vernal Equinox to occur since the year 1425 that both the Sun and Uranus are exactly on the Aries Point together. What an amazing treat to be gifted with this year as the Sun, our Life Force and conscious Self, blends with Uranus, the initiator of Awakenings! (more…)

On March 11th, 2011 Uranus reentered Aries, reawakening the potentials first glimpsed when Uranus briefly occupied the Aries Point (1°) during June, July and the first half of August 2010. Until March of 2019, Aries and Uranus will be working hand-in-hand to revolutionize our lives through awakening within the individual their personal capacity for ingenuity and creative uniqueness. During this period we will be encouraged to develop these qualities into forms that allow for a greater self-sufficiency hence providing us with a greater sense of our Individual Self and imbuing a healthy measure of self-empowerment within those that navigate this period responsibly.

With Uranus’s reentry into Aries we begin our approach to the square meets of revolutionary Uranus and evolutionary Pluto. Following is the timetable for the exact squares of Uranus in Aries to Pluto in Capricorn:

2012: Last week of June (9°) and last week of August (8°)

2013: 3rd week of May (12°) and 1st week of November (10°)

2014: Last week of April (14°) and 3rd week of December (13°)

2015: 3rd week of March (16°)

Though the first exact square of Uranus and Pluto is not due until June 2012, these two titans of reformation will be within a 2 degree orb by the upcoming Summer Solstice, remaining in tight orb throughout the summer months and into September. This summer will be the second season that both Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn participate in our Cardinal T-square and Crosses of 2011 which will be in full swing as the  inner planets transit early Cancer and Libra. The series of 2011 Squares/Crosses begin in mid-June with Mercury’s ingress of Cancer and culminate with Mercury’s ingress of Libra the last week of September. ***Note that Mars will participate in the 2011 configurations when he transits Cancer in early August yet shall not transit Libra until later in 2012.

Uranus turns retrograde on July 5th, 2010 @ 0°35′ Aries.

Retrograde Uranus will remain at Aries Point until August 14th then backtrack into Pisces where direct station occurs on December 5th @ 26°40′ Pisces. On March 11th, 2011 Uranus reenters Aries and remains in the Sign of the Ram until 2019.

We are now at the end of our Uranus in Pisces experience and Uranus will not be revisiting Pisces for another 84 years.

Uranus first covered the degree’s of this retrograde phase in direct motion between March 19th and July 5th, 2010. This period was one of heightened activity due to Uranus being in the completion stages of a seven-year residency within Pisces and also due to the ongoing opposition with Saturn(which only occurs every 28+ years). Not to be overlooked has also been Uranus’s role in the continuing T-Squares and Grand Crosses of 2010.

These powerful configurations, in which Uranus has been a participant, have been changing our existence by catalyzing us to release outgrown forms and ways of Being while placing us within new forms and archetypes that are a better suited and more productive platform to preform effectively within the current climate of Humanities evolution.

Due to Uranus (and Jupiter!) straddling Pisces and Aries, this upcoming period will be a time of continuing major completions, even while new forms and ways continue to come forth.

The activity of the many past months has been one of seeming instability for we truly have been rocking between the extremes of old and new (saturn-uranus), responsibility and freedom(saturn-uranus) and endings and beginnings(pisces-aries) in both literal and archetypal forms.

While much has been wrapped up in our individual lives in relation to Uranus/Pisces and their relevance within our personal charts we will have one last sweep of Pisces and possibly more completions to attend to from late August of this year until March of 2011 as Uranus finishes his Piscean journey.
