Weekly Astrology Notes February 26 – March 5, 2017
Notes: Times shown in Pacific Standard Time (PST).
Weekly Summary: We have another incredible week ahead. Enormous growth potential means it’s time to get going on that special project that you have been wanting to start. This is the week for new beginnings, letting go of the past and taking the next step in your process of evolution.
Mars conjunct Uranus on Sunday, Mars opposition Jupiter on Monday, Sun conjunct Neptune on Wednesday, Jupiter opposition Uranus on Thursday, Mercury conjunct Neptune on Saturday, and Mars trine Saturn on Sunday.
On a personal level, there is no better time to make a fresh new start on life. Expose yourself to something new, make a break for freedom, start a new business venture, etc. But it may be hard to realize this is the case with so much insanity happening in the world.
In geopolitics, this will be the biggest week of the year thus far. We are all anxiously awaiting news of more pedophile arrests to see how high up the political food chain this will go. What is important for Americans to understand is that this network of pedophiles is worldwide and these same people are loosing ground everywhere. And as this network is exposed in other countries, it has ripple effects throughout the world. We have already seen unprecedented movement to arrest these pedophiles and free the children. I encourage my viewers to educate yourself about this issue. I’ll include some links.
On Sunday, New Moon and a Solar Eclipse. It’s the start of one of the biggest weeks of the year. Mars conjunct Uranus and today we yearn for nothing less than to be the unique and interesting individual that we are. A great day for starting a new project or embarking on a new path towards enlightenment. Also a day of potential conflicts as the JU opp UR aspect is activated, initiating the next revolution of the new paradigm. So we’ve a fascinating combination of elements as play including the major aspect of this year, JU opp UR, concurrently activated by Mars, along with some ego-denying Pisces aspects. We’re going to get smashed together. It’s an astrological recipe for a collective experience. We will all be thrown into the collective pool of humanity’s drama and asked to swim.
On Monday, Media Confrontation Day with Mars opposition Jupiter. Today everyone wants to test their luck (Jupiter) to see how well they are doing.
On Tuesday, Feel good about yourself today with Moon in Aires, good time to start new projects.
On Wednesday, Everyone becomes a Pisces today with Sun conjunct Neptune (Pisces). A good day for art, poetry and dance. Let it flow from the depths of your soul.
On Thursday, The Renaissance of Jupiter in Libra unfolds. Conventional wisdom will never be the same after this year is complete. The confluence of events effecting Jupiter reaches a powerful turning point, there’s no going back after this point. Get ready to take the plunge into collective modernization of our perspective. Conflicts now unfold which will change our lives. We’re sure to remember them.
On Friday, You may want to take the day off, make it a long weekend. Long Void of Course today. Not a good day to start projects. Good day for meditation and think about what just happened in the world.
On Saturday, Communication gets confusing and impressionable and once again this week we seek an artistic outlet with Mercury conjunct Neptune. A bad day for driving, especially in the late evening, early Sunday morning. Strong driving caution for Saturday night.
On Sunday, Great day to build something meant to last with Mars trine Saturn but with some emotional challenges along the way.
New Moon and a Solar Eclipse. It’s the start of one of the biggest weeks of the year. Mars conjunct Uranus and today we yearn for nothing less than to be the unique and interesting individual that we are.

Also a day of potential conflicts as the JU opp UR aspect is activated, initiating the next revolution of the new paradigm.
6:58am – Moon conjunct Sun (Pisces) Everyone becomes a bit of Pisces this month, especially with Moon conjunct Neptune and Mercury entering Pisces happening so close to the New Moon. We will all be more in tune with the needs of the collective. Our creative energy dissolves into the rest of humanity and we seek a connection to everyone. Rather easy to be deluded by others, thinking everyone has the best of intentions. But the connection we feel to everyone and everything around us is wonderful. We feel more compassionate and warm, willing to lend our time to others, more spiritual and intuitive, open to subtle impressions, show kindness towards animals and nature, including nature spirits.
Despite all of the warmth associated with this aspect itself, the concurrent Mars conjunct Uranus holds significance for the entire coming month as well. This heralds the start of a wild month with overt aggression and surprising events. New Moon in Pisces plays into the picture by showing us that no matter what we do, we are all connected and what happens to one, happens to everyone.
Our plans for personal freedom (MA con UR) flow into the collective and become part of humanity’s collective desire for freedom. The desire for freedom is in the heart of every living being. So we are going to feel really connected to everyone else this month, like the boundary between individuals dissolves and we can feel what others are feeling. This can be both good and bad. If you understand your profound need to feel connected to others then it’s great. But if you dismiss or resent your connection to others, then it’s a frustrating time.
What is so wonderful about this particular combination is that the MA con UR will give us a yearning for freedom and our own evolution. This month, we re-commit ourselves to becoming the truly unique individual that we are and fulfilling our highest aspirations. The New Moon in Pisces will be make it seem like a dream come true. Our connection to Divine Source is very strong this month.
12:56pm – Moon conjunct Neptune (Pisces) I’ve talked about this aspect for months. A cosmic poke on the belly-button. Each month when it comes along is a time to sense your connection to the collective in a profound and spiritual way. That will take on special meaning this month as it coincides with the New Moon. I get the sense we will all be sharing feelings about the same powerful events. All the more reason to believe some event of worldwide significance happens today.
4:17pm – Mars conjunct Uranus (Aires). I’ve been anxiously awaiting this aspect. The start of a new Mars-Uranus cycle! Challenging aspects on the last cycle coincided with numerous events like false flag attacks, terror attacks, and even an attempted coup in Turkey. These aspects have give us some of the best indicators of the war between the different factions fighting for control of the planet. With both planets in Aires, ruled by Mars, this day is sure to bring some powerful (Mars) surprises (Uranus).
But before we consider all the geopolitical impacts, remember on a personal level this is a wonderful day for making a fresh new start. It’s a day of casting off the old, worn-out elements of the ego and expressing yourself with great confidence and intelligence. Uranus represents our highest potential, our most evolved self, our unique self that is distinct and different from everyone else, yet connected and equal to everyone else. Mars is our identity, our ego and our direction. So today we move in the direction of our personal evolution. Nothing can hold you back today. It’s a unrestrained desire for freedom and mobility, a very inspirational day. You may want to start a new project or venture today. The idea of being an entrepreneur will have mass appeal as no one wants to be a slave to their job, especially today. Whatever it is that sets you apart from everyone else and makes you interesting and unique is the part of you that you identify with today.
And of course along with all of that strong will and desire to break free comes potential for conflicts.
Because this aspect activates the JU opp UR soon to happen next week, this day is the start of everything associated with that aspect, so the sky’s the limit on how much surprise we could see today.
We may see popular protests and uprisings that seek to overthrow repressive elements of the establishment. This could happen worldwide as nations and people seek to cast away blocks to their advancement. Uranus is also rebellious and defiant, anyone in the establishment is a potential target for popular anger. And it will probably bring the liberal social justice warriors out of the woodwork once again.
Today we could see the start of fighting in many areas of the world. There is so much at stake during this new Mars-Uranus cycle, that everyone in the world will be looking to take a powerful position in the new paradigm.
Media Confrontation Day with Mars opposition Jupiter. Today everyone wants to test their luck (Jupiter) to see how well they are doing.
1:25am – Moon (Pisces) sextile Pluto (Capricorn) Intense compassion in the middle of the night.
6:24am – Mars (Aires) opposition Jupiter (Libra) Today everyone wants to test their luck (Jupiter). Today, we confront anything that limits our growth. It is a day of testing to see if we have achieved the growth we expected. In mid-October 2015, Mars conjunct Jupiter at 13d Virgo encouraged us to start a new health regime. Today we are curious to see how far we have come since then.
A strong burst of confident energy which if utilized properly, enables you to make the right move at the right time, so long as you stay within reason. The tendency to skip details is high so be sure to take precaution using machinery or doing anything that requires patience and skill. We are more sure about who we think we are and what we think we know which could lead to mental errors.
This aspect is along the Aires-Libra axis, the axis of identity. Here we see the need to balance identity (Aires) with relationships (Libra). Today we have a strong sense of identity that needs to be recognized by others. Hence, a strong desire to be in a loving relationship will be felt by everyone today. This is an important day in the year of Jupiter in Libra, which promises to expand our relationships and bring new people into our life. It’s a day of testing, so those without a relationship will feel lonely and hence a strong need to look for one today. We could see a big upsurge in membership on dating websites. Today, we need to be in a relationship in order to feel balanced and complete. So this aspect is very good for existing relationships as well as bringing a new one into your life.
Today we get a big jolt of hope, enthusiasm and zest for life and a great deal of physical energy. So, get in a good workout at the least. Stretching (Jupiter) is essential for life today. We feel a compulsion to travel or just go somewhere.
On the negative side of this aspect, some may exaggerate their abilities, possibly seek to dominate (Mars) the conversation. Could lead to heated (Mars) and loud (Jupiter) arguments (opposition) for people who are insecure about other people’s perspectives or their abundance (Jupiter). Check your ego today to be sure you are not jealous of the accomplishments of others or fail to see the value in others. With all of the upheaval going on, it would easy to find yourself being the target of someone’s inconsiderate behavior. The abundance of Mars energy could bring out the best and worst in people.
On a geopolitical level, this aspect is sure to heat things up and could bring conflict out into the open. All of the tension from the upcoming JU opp UR starts on Sunday and Monday with these two Mars aspects. So anything related to the new paradigm could happen today. A serious fight is happening now in the USA that could lead to serious conflicts (Mars) involving the mainstream media (Jupiter). The mainstream media will be overly confident and possibly do something rather foolish. President Trump recently set up some traps to snare the media and it looks like it worked. General Flynn was just a trap to ensnare who in the WH staff is leaking information to the press and the people in the press who received the information. This is a crime and we could see the arrest of major media personalities or their superiors. One way or another, these two Mars aspects are sure to shake up the media.
3:08pm – Moon (Pisces) square Saturn (Sagittarius). Feeling a crisis to consider the limited (Saturn) perspective (Sagittarius) of another. You may just prefer to completely avoid some people. Void of Course begins.
8:52pm – Moon enters Aires. Energy picks up in the evening. Folks are more self-centered for the next couple of days. People more in touch with their emotional needs makes it a good time to start projects.
Feel good about yourself today with Moon in Aires, good time to start new projects.
6:55pm – Moon conjunct Venus (Aires) The only aspect today and it’s so pleasant. People are just really pleased with themselves at this moment. Feeling beautiful.
Everyone becomes a Pisces today with Sun conjunct Neptune (Pisces). A good day for art, poetry and dance. Let it flow from the depths of your soul.
4:49am – Moon (Aires) square Pluto (Capricorn) Burdens of career limit our emotional expression. Desire is to defy authority and obligation and strike out on your own. Could cause disagreements.
10:27am – Moon conjunct Uranus (Aires) Folks rather in love with themselves at this moment. This combination puts our heart and our evolved self together.
10:43am – Moon (Aires) opposition Jupiter (Libra) Good time to get in a crowd. Emotions expand and we easily share our feelings with others.
1:48pm – Moon conjunct Mars (Aires) Very self-assertive. No one has a problem expressing their feelings now. Excellent moment of mastery (10th step is the Capricorn step) of our own emotions. The challenge is to not sacrifice your feelings while not dominating others.
6:18pm – Moon (Aires) trine Saturn (Sagittarius). Get along well with others. Void of Course begins.
6:45pm – Sun conjunct Neptune (Pisces) Everyone becomes a Pisces today, more sensitive, intuitive, warm and tender. Also a bit more confused and wanting to withdraw. Easy to be fooled, seeing the world through rose-colored glasses, not seeing bad in others. We crave a collective experience today so we let down our guard and reach out to others. Despite the need to withdraw, we want to be amongst the rest of humanity and allow our creative energies to merge with whomever reflects the Sun back into our lives.
We want the light of the Sun to lighten up the hidden (Pisces) parts of our lives and are willing to go beyond our typical boundary to make it happen. Increases perception and psychic ability as well interest in hidden things, like mysteries. Daydreaming and fantasy play a role in helping to access creative energy.
Ego-denial and inability to stand up for yourself can make the day seem unfulfilling or disappointing. The willingness to lay down and let others walk over you, aka suffer, is all because we don’t want to see through our own illusions about life.
We do not need to make sense of everyone or everything we encounter today. We can make peace with the blur. In doing so, we can access the collective unconscious (Pisces) through our creative (Sun) efforts. A day for art, poetry, music, drumming, song and dance. Place no conditions on your creativity today. Allow your art to come from the depths of your soul.
This could be a liberating day when taken along with the other aspects for this week, this is the perfect moment for a collective (Pisces) experience. The idea of salvation will be more prevalent in the religious minded. A good day to seek spiritual connection through prayer and reflection, meditation. Not a good day to indulge in drugs indiscriminately.
11:43pm – Moon enters Taurus. Our feelings tend towards sensual fulfillment for the next couple of days. More steadfast and honorable, not willing to change directions suddenly. That’s good for the Moon because that trait enables the Moon to form lasting bonds which is why the Moon is exalted in Taurus. Time to take more comfort in our personal possessions. Good time to get a massage.
The Renaissance of Jupiter in Libra unfolds. Conventional wisdom will never be the same after this year is complete. The confluence of events effecting Jupiter reaches a powerful turning point, there’s no going back after this point. Get ready to take the plunge into collective modernization of our perspective. Conflicts unfold now which will change our lives. We’ll be sure to remember them.
3:48pm – Moon (Taurus) sextile Mercury (Pisces) Good time to communicate your feelings. Able to express ourselves with tenderness and compassion.
5:19pm – Jupiter (Libra) opposition Uranus (Aires) First pass December 26, 2016 at 20d – Jupiter Direct, Uranus retrograde. Second pass March 2, 2017 at 22d10′ – Jupiter retrograde, Uranus Direct. Third pass September 27, 2017, at 27d22′ both planets Direct. Universe is saving the best for last this time.
I just want to start off by saying that my biggest hope for this aspect is mainstream media revelation of artifacts in the Antarctic. Nothing could enlighten or modernize (Uranus) our perspective (Jupiter) more than that.
The Renaissance of Jupiter in Libra began late last year, coinciding with sudden changes (Uranus) in politics (Jupiter). But Jupiter also rules the media, professional sports, religion and travel. So far, we are seeing some changes in the media, though not enough, and not much said about the other things ruled by Jupiter. This passage promises to encompass much more.
Open conflict in the media is likely. The war over fake news will come out into the open. Have you noticed how many people are against the Pizzagate stories. Here’s the worst yet to surface.
And what about religion? Religion is very traditional (Saturn). Uranus represents rebellion towards traditional values and authority structures. The result is people are leaving traditional religion in droves while seeking to incorporate Uranian ideas and concepts into the belief system. A greater interest in New Age (Uranus) ideas and people, but in a more structured and realistic manner because Saturn makes positive aspects. So it’s not the ungrounded, superficial brand of New Age philosophy that we have seen for so long. It’s more practical. People want to apply useful knowledge into their lives, not try out some untested idea. People want ideas that work to help them bring better structure (Saturn) to their lives. The practical energy of Saturn is what makes this new paradigm so promising.
Factor in Saturn in Sagittarius, which is bringing a restructuring (Saturn) of religion (Jupiter) and we see a moment when humanity is extraordinarily open to new religious ideas because the old ones are now clearly not helping to solve humanity’s problems. In fact, organized religion is getting in the way. The need to incorporate new ideas into our beliefs while restructuring them at them same time means humanity is ready for a collective experience necessary to change conventional wisdom (Jupiter).
On a macro level, Jupiter rules conventional wisdom, the tried and true wisdom that helps you negotiate life. That has gone away, leaving society with no clear set of rules to guide human behavior. People can be arrogant and excessive and there is no functional conventional wisdom remaining to stop them. We lack a cohesive perspective because our experiences are so different. In order to bring everyone back onto the same page we need to turn the page. This week society turns a new page. That means some new collective experience, hopefully a good one.
Once last note. Uranus was retrograde on the first pass and Jupiter is retrograde on the second pass. So, it looks like whatever is being done by both will have to be modified at the third pass when both planets are Direct. Keep this in mind as events unfold.
7:27pm – Moon (Taurus) sextile Neptune (Pisces) Able to sense the needs of others. Very healing aspect, good for rock medicine.
9:14pm – Moon (Taurus) sextile Sun (Pisces). Same as the previous and creative energy as well.
You may want to take the day off, make it a long weekend. Long Void of Course today. Not a good day to start projects. Good day for meditation.
7:20am – Moon (Taurus) trine Pluto (Capricorn). An even temperament (Taurus) provides opportunities for advancement (Capricorn). Able to respond to the needs of others in a mature and helpful manner. Void of Course begins. Continues until early tomorrow morning.
Communication gets confusing and impressionable and once again this week we seek an artistic outlet with Mercury conjunct Neptune. A bad day for driving, especially in the late evening and early Sunday morning. Strong driving caution for Saturday night.
1:08am – Venus goes Retrograde at 13d9′ Aires. Continues Retrograde until April 15 at 26d54′ Pisces. Venus turns inward and all things related to Venus turn introspective. It’s a time of reflection rather than action concerning relationships. In Aires, Venus is in it’s fallen sign and in Pisces Venus is in it’s detriment. So these are two difficult signs for Venus to begin with and now we see Venus is spending a extra amount of time in these challenging signs. During retrograde periods we are more reflective, therefore more discerning of our relationships. It is easier to see through the perfect notions that we hold regarding relationships and see them for what they are. Hard to take a step forward in relationships because we typically don’t act upon an issue while the planet is retrograde. Here’s some links to check out.
2:05am – Moon enters Gemini. Moon is active in Gemini, more communication and short trips around town as we try to complete tasks before Moon enters Cancer and begins a new cycle. Events happen too fast to get deeply committed.
3:10am – Mercury conjunct Neptune (Pisces) Today conscious awareness (Mercury) expands to include things we usually do not see. Pisces says “I believe” so today we are more concerned with our overall beliefs. The mind is more open to subtle impressions and prone to spiritual idealism. Today we sense a intuitive connection to others and are more psychic. Communication is colored by feelings and disparate thoughts, specific details seem less important. So today we need to pay more attention to what we say and listening to others, otherwise we could miss out on important details. Neptune and Pisces bring shyness and uncertainty and extra effort is needed to overcome the sense that everything we say is dissolving.
Once again this week, confusion is likely as the boundary between us and others dissolves. It makes us gullible and we need to avoid making agreements today because we are likely not seeing clearly. We are too prone to ego-denial and sacrifice to adequately represent our long term interests.
In Pisces, the dualistic (Gemini) expression of Mercury is expressed as believing two contradictory ideas. This paradox in thinking is greatly increased at the conjunction to Neptune. It is beneficial if you realize that we need to live in paradox on a daily basis anyhow, today we are just more aware of it. Imagination and fantasy play an important role in opening up pathways in the conscious mind that allow connection to the collective unconscious.
The unconditional quality of Neptune means we could find ourselves talking with just about anyone. The boundary around the conscious mind is relaxed and we have more compassion and seek to understand the hidden, spiritual quality in everyone. Just like the recent Sun conjunction Neptune, this aspect is also great for artistic endeavors. Poetry and philosophy are especially indicated. We desire to uncover hidden things, explore esoteric subjects.
10:02pm – Moon (Gemini) square Neptune (Pisces) Crisis to feel connected to others. Makes us shy and withdrawn. The first of 4 squares for the Moon (Gemini). Be cautious of overindulgence in alcohol and/or drugs which cause a stronger than usual disconnect with the conscious mind. Strong driving caution. Best to stay off the road this evening.
Great day to build something meant to last with Mars trine Saturn but with some emotional challenges along the way.
12:14am – Moon (Gemini) sextile Venus (Aires) Helps communication, but Venus is retrograde.
12:51am – Moon (Gemini) square Mercury (Pisces) Bad for communication and short trips. Easy to get lost. Hard to find a ride home. Be careful while driving late Saturday evening. Stay off the road.
3:32am – Moon (Gemini) square Sun (Pisces). This aspect make the Moon very active. Lots of communication, lots of feelings and emotions that can change rapidly. Hard to know how to feel. Also makes it hard to consider the feelings of others. Could lead to disagreements.
First Quarter Moon. This First Quarter Moon is the Gemini to Pisces square which is characterized as a crisis to expand your thinking (Gemini) to include things that you do not see (Pisces). The temptation is to use the rational mind to dismiss uncomfortable information that if considered, would force you to change your thinking.
You may find yourself being the target of someone’s inconsideration. The best use of this and the previous aspects is to do your spiritual (Pisces) work (square). If you are aware of energy (psychic), these squares can help let go of superficial or useless emotional (Moon) and unseen (Pisces) energies. We often absorb the energy of people and things around us like a sponge. When we become conscious of this invisible trait of physical reality, our perception about what we can do about it changes drastically. We’re not victims of the unseen (Pisces) anymore once we have information (Gemini) about it. These aspects give us the opportunity to do our spiritual work, to perceive beyond the mundane world, but we must consciously make the effort. Patience, kindness and consideration for others gives more spiritual (Pisces) transportation (Gemini) now. So this aspect could be uplifting or disappointing.
12:45pm – Mars (Aires) trine Saturn (Sagittarius). Today we want to do things that are meant to last a long time. Good day to buy practical things, stuff that you genuinely need. This aspect makes us want to look ahead as we go through our daily affairs and see how we can preserve ourselves into the future. The ego (Mars) is more mature today as we seek to incorporate something of lasting value into our lives. People are more agreeable, less likely to exhibit defiance or overt aggressive behavior. Relations with superiors and authority figures are better today. Good time to reach an agreement as egos are working towards practical goals.
Patience and persistence are the virtues that we are looking for today. Good day to work on projects that require patience and skill. Saturn causes the energy of Mars to be released in a slow steady stream that enables you to work until a task is completed and not worry about immediate personal gratification along the way. You need less work breaks.
Today the insight that we gained over this past week is applied to something that inspires us (Sagittarius) to make a bold new start (Aires), which will expand our identity in a structured (Saturn) way. A very good day to start a business venture, make plans for the future, make an agreement or build something meant to last, like construction projects.
3:12pm – Moon (Gemini) trine Jupiter (Libra) Very active Moon. Emotions come and go at a fast pace. Very talkative and congenial. Good for social gatherings.
3:50pm – Moon (Gemini) sextile Uranus (Aires) Intellectually stimulating and restless. Socially helpful and very aware. Psychic energy increases.
11:48pm – Moon (Gemini) opposition Saturn (Sagittarius) Communication slows down, folks tire quickly and go to bed on time.
That’s all for this weeks’ aspects. Once again, thanks for viewing Weekly Astrology Notes, and please leave comments. I’ll include a part two for this week.
