“Swimming up stream, coming from ‘life is but a dream,'" is how I often describe a confluence of such yang Aries and yin Pisces planets, whether or not they aspect each other. While the Sun in Aries and Mercury zipping ahead at 10° maintain a unification of willful drive and words to hammer it through with, Venus moving past Neptune in Pisces still throws a confusing, watery current of this haze.
In his horoscope for March 26th earlier today, the astrologer Adam Elenbaas wrote particularly on Venus’ t-square with Jupiter and Saturn in Sagittarius, saying: “The t-square is happening in the mutable signs, perhaps emphasizing the presence of multiple responsibilities, jobs, tasks, burdens, visions, and goals happening at once. How do we decide how to prioritize our time, money, and physical energy? How do we determine where to focus our efforts for the future? What needs to get cut out, consolidated, minimized or reorganized?”
While the sheer multiplicity of prospects to behold — however creative, romantic, domestic, career-oriented or financial in nature — may seem daunting, mutable energy specializes in rearranging and re-visioning ways to communicate and achieve. Elenbaas also used the word ‘synthesis’, which is a big one for mutable signs.
I’m fond of saying mutable signs represent reintegration on one’s left side, dissemination on one’s right. Ending each season, they mix the seasons’ messages and spit them out efficiently. I enjoy right brain left arm, left brain right arm type symbolism. It bears a lot of truth. But switch it up if you wish, turn that shit on its head!
The gusto of Sun in Aries trine Mars in Sagittarius is all for quick progress, despite that ambivalent haze the aforementioned t-square might share with you. Remember that quick progress doesn’t mean quick, thoughtless decisions beforehand. While the Sun and Mars in these signs are both great for visionary ‘sight’ and that immediate ‘I just know’, fiery intuition doesn’t always lead to well considered leaps toward victory. Personally, as many choices as there are to consider, I’m gonna try and balance this celestial speed with a slow, steady burn. I’m already loving the mixed momentums.
Look perhaps to the Aries New Moon on April 7th for a shift in the ‘stuck in a quagmire’ or ‘pulled in all directions’ or ‘in what order should I pull myself all directions?!’ type feelings. Things may very well be zipping right along by then, but I wouldn’t necessarily expect them to be too predictable… at the moment of the New Moon, Venus will be 2° into Aries, the sign of her detriment, and move into a lively trine with Mars in the days to follow. With the Sun and New Moon conjunct shockwave Uranus, who knows what excitement will arise?
