Moving Forward: From Elusive to Dynamic

After three weeks of perceived backward motion (since February 23, 2013), yesterday we began forward motion as MERCURY TURNED DIRECT.

Mercury remains in PISCES until April 13, 2013.

We can’t expect our minds to suddenly have clarity on the direction forward yet, for a bit longer our minds will continue to inhabit intangible realms of spirit and unimaginable open spaces.

But now there is motion forward. We begin to move toward new more assertive spaces  and we begin to understand what knowledge has been assimilated during this intensely sensitive and transcendent time.

We have gathered much inner knowledge and understanding during this time that requires us to reset our travel plans as we step forward.

Whether we have been aware of it, or not, we have been treading some intensely deep and unconscious places during this time.

Now, as we begin to move forward, we are well advised to open our eyes and our minds fully. Accept what we see, even if it is highly inconvenient.

We are now encountering, or about to encounter, ourselves and our situations, in a manner that requires us to move in a different direction than we previously anticipated.

Look to the house where all these Pisces planets have been traversing. (If you don’t know, send me your correct birth information (date, place, exact time), write and ask me… I’ll let you know)

Now we are ready to receive our first glimpses of this new ground we find ourselves inhabiting. New Opportunities and New Responsibilities abound.

Our awareness will grow and deepen over the coming weeks.

Don’t expect to immediately understand this change, or for it to be easy to implement. We may feel excitement or we may feel intense dread, most likely a combination stirs within!

Sit with it a while longer, begin to unravel the clues, it will take some time before clarity comes easily.

For now, know the path forward is being cleared. Take time to observe, consider, and keep the path clear of debris.

MOON IN GEMINI supports conversation, curiosity, and socializing.

6 Steps to Navigating Mars Retrograde!

#1   Do not question where your energy went – follow where it takes you

With nearly 2.5 months left of MARS RETROGRADE (MARS turned retrograde, in VIRGO, on Tuesday, January 24th) are you wondering where your energy went?

You may notice that you no longer have access to the energy that, until recently, has kept you moving forward in a relatively clear and particular direction.

Now a point has come where it is important to pause and pay careful attention to the direction that is calling for attention.

It may take a few days, or more, to adjust, but the way will become clear as you move forward, careful not to block it by holding on to a determination to stay on the path you were committed to!

Allow your direction to shift!

#2  Allow all frustration to slide off your back

During this time it is best not to take frustration too seriously. Perhaps you could find some humor or amusement in your own and others level of frustration. The frustration will settle down as you make the adjustments that need to be made and find  the new direction that is currently waiting for you to allow it to show itself. If you insist on holding onto the frustration, you will not find the new direction, so let it slide off your back.

#3  Face the past squarely when it comes knocking

As our concentration turns in other directions, we may encounter a certain amount of frustration as we try to shift gears because we are unable to find the energy to do what we expected to be doing! Apparently there is something else that needs our attention. It may be something that we had previously let fall to the wayside. Perhaps we should explore areas that we have not stuck with, things that we have given up on in the past.  Whatever the issue is, we must now dedicate time to facing with precision and in detail.

Another possibility with MARS RETROGRADE is finding ourselves newly embroiled in a past conflict, or difficult conversation, that we thought had been shelved for good. It is important to dedicate yourself to the details. Discrimination is key.  Tie up whatever loose-ends are enabling this issue to still be lurking!

#4 Find out where Mars is transiting in your chart

Notice the areas of your life that are struggling for your energy.
If you know where in your horoscope MARS is traveling and what other planets are being affected it will help you to  understand your current process.

Our meeting can be: In person (Burlington, VT area), by telephone or on Video Skype!

#5 Rest more than is normal for you

Our assertive energies are not strong right now. Our focus has not only shifted but we feel less physical energy. We may need more sleep, desire warmth and serenity. Sleep is like chocolate; sometimes it is the only thing that helps! Get 7 – 8 hours a night and let me know how you feel!


#6  Do something that matters

Do something that makes a difference. Do something that is bigger than  you think you are! Find something within yourself to perfect; something that you can offer, as a service. to others.  This is your offering to humanity.

Are you at a crossroad in your life? Are your circumstances other than what you expected?

We can meet for an individual consultations (Burlington, Vermont), by telephone, or on SKYPE!

Life Transitions Require New Perspectives!
