Hi and Welcome to THE INTUITIVE LIFE BLOG …WITH ME SKYE MACKENNA
This is a weekly forecast of the energies for the week ahead. I’ll also be doing some unannounced LIVE radio call-in events on my radio show on BlogTalk Radio. If you’d like, you can be notified of special events by following me on twitter at twitter.com/skyemackenna, or subscribing to the blog. And there’s also an audioPost of this blog if you’d rather listen. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/intuitivelife
. . . . .
And also — if you’re learning tarot, or know someone who is — I’ve created some pretty helpful intuitive and tarot products…laminated tarot reference sheets and also a new deck of tarot-sized intuitive playing cards (with the meanings right on the front!) They seem to be a great conversation starter at gatherings I’m told! If you’d like to see them, they’re all on amazon….just go to amazon.com and search for Skye Mackenna.
Plus, you can also find information about private sessions with me to see what’s coming up for YOU personally at my website http://www.intuitivelifeguidance.com. I’ll also send you an audio of our session right afterward so you won’t even have to take notes!
. . . . .
Now, before I get to the week ahead, I want to stress stress AND stress …what an incredibly powerful month of change and revolution, both personally and in the world that we have coming up. Life will NOT be the same after March 2015… And the extent that life will change for you personally will hinge on how closely aligned the coming astrological events impact significant points in your own chart. But no matter what, you can expect that life will most definitely be changing in the world and around you in this highly charged month.
Most importantly because on March 16th, we’ll be confronted by the final clash between Uranus and Pluto – the final square number seven of seven — at 15 degrees Aries-Capricorn. While this is the last exact hit, the square will resurface in January of 2016. Then as we move on in 2016, this tumultuous energy will finally loosen its grip. Plus we’re coming into eclipse season later this month as well.
I’ll be talking about each of these energies in upcoming Intuitive Life blog posts, but for now, just get ready and hold on!
The week ahead is a powerful launch to March. There are multiple aspects on most days of this week, plus a twitchy Virgo Full Moon, and quite a few planetary tangles.
Plus the South Lunar Node will be activated this week as both Venus, and then Mars, will be moving across the South Node later this week. The South Node is about letting go, about the past, and about moving on after completion. This could simply mean cleaning out closets and donating or having a yard sale. Or someone or something that has been important to you, whether it’s about finances, money or relationship – is ready to be let go. Goodbyes may be in order.
So, with that, let’s get to that energy for the week ahead…
The juicy flavor of the week centers on a revisit from the powerfully creative, surprising and expansive Jupiter Uranus trine. This happens at 14:35 of Leo/Aries and brings us a fresh start. The first time this aspect occurred was last September so think back to that time – a similar situation or theme may repeat itself now.
For everyone, this is the energy of inspiration insight, and fresh new ideas. Dusty outmoded beliefs can be replaced with new perspective and earned wisdom. And unexpected, surprising or “lucky” opportunities may pop up out of the blue. But since an opportunity isn’t always a guarantee – action and follow-through may be required to reap the benefits here. Also behavior (yours or those around you) could seem unpredictable or erratic. Just be ready for a surprising bolt from the blue!
Another bit of very good and probably very welcome news for most is that on Tuesday march 3rd, Mercury will FINALLY leave his scrunchy retrograde shadow. We’ll be free of a Mercury back step for a while. Until May 4th when the retrograde will begin yet again… So just know that any confusion, miscommunications or delays that have occurred over the last two months dissolve. The good news is that you now have the benefit of seeing plans or projects with new vision and new perspective after all the re-consideration and re-viewing of the last two months. In some cases, you may have had a plan or project that seemed like a great idea a month or two ago, but now with new perspective, you realize a different approach or decision would be more effective or successful for you.
Wednesday, March 4th is another hot button day for this week.
Venus conjuncts Uranus and squares Pluto setting off the prevailing Uranus/Pluto square. She also forms an expansive flowing trine aspect to Jupiter today. This can either soften events – or just make them bigger. Jupiter makes everything he touches BIGGER, whether good or challenging! Since Venus rules money and love, these couple of days could bring a turning point in finances, partnerships and/or relationships of all kinds. Venus will make a square to controlling Pluto, creating tension.
Venus with Uranus squaring Pluto is impulsive and explosive, deep and controlling. Relationships can blow up and end. Spending can get out of control. On the other hand, this is the energy of freedom and independence, especially in relationships.
when combined with Uranus Venus is cool, detached and unpredictable. And with Pluto – demanding and manipulative. Not the best combination for love and relationships. Conflict rooted in jealousy or envy can rear its pointy little head as well.
There can also be compelling urges to step over a line. Any line. Enjoy taking a risk, but if you overstep just know that there WILL be consequences that you might not be able to foresee. On the positive side, this energy can reveal areas that are in need of drastic change and transformation. And only by seeing the issues can they be healed.
This is also the day that Mars conjuncts the South Lunar Node at 10:04 of Aries. The South Lunar Node focuses on the past. It’s where we release or move away from something that’s outlived its usefulness and can sometimes involve a loss of some kind. Sometimes it’s about something moving from the foreground to the background in importance. And/or something (or someone) from the past may revisit for a look.
Since this involves Mars, what will be released will likely have to do with “me-first” aggression or force, anger, sex or physical energy. Or some action (Mars) taken in the past comes back that needs to be released.
And…we’re not through with the forceful energy of the week yet…
On Thursday, March 5th, we also have a complicated and awkward Virgo Full Moon at 14 degrees Virgo to illuminate portions of our lives. While a Virgo Full Moon is usually grounding and focuses on health, service, our daily routines, attention to details, and service to others, this Virgo Full Moon is edgy and nervous. She makes a tight opposition to the conjunction of Chiron, the Wounded Healer, and nebulous Neptune in Pisces. She also makes a an uncomfortable quincunx aspect to the Venus/Uranus conjunction mentioned earlier. The quincunx aspect connects two types of energy that have nothing in common so there’s an innate discomfort with the planets involved, so with a Full emotional moon coupled with the opposition to Neptune and Chiron, old feelings, wounds, confusion and hurt can surface. But remember, wounds have to be seen in order to be healed.
Finally this week… on Wednesday, March 11th, Mars will conjunct Uranus and square Pluto, and for a few days before this and a week or so after life can be crisis laden and explosive, both individually and globally. And while this is a crisis transit, it will affect you personally only if it is closely aspecting your chart. Also on this same day, Mercury will square off with somber Saturn opening the door to negative thinking, fear, gloom or depression.
This aspect will also be activating and leading us up to next week’s exact contact between the explosive, seven of seven, Uranus Pluto square. This aspect is part of the Uranus/Pluto aspect family we saw in the mid-1930’s and 1960’s. Look for the situations to be even more inflamed and volatile, both personally and globally. Power struggles and unexpected situations will be front and center. And even though this aspect becomes exact on March 16th, its energy will be encompassing us for the remainder of 2015 and into 2016. If this aspect is not directly affecting your personal chart, you will be seeing the changes around you and not necessarily personally.
So, over the next month or so, do your best to control your impatience and temper. And recognize that others may be having a difficult time that you may or may not be aware of. The more centered and calm you can remain within yourself, the more peace and healing you can bring – without even saying a word!
