Untangling – Massive Sky Astrology



Venus and Mars make a conjunction in Aquarius this week (Feb. 21, 2024, 11:14 pm PST) on the Sabian image 7 Aquarius: Youngster born of an eggshell. This mix jogs my memory of the sci-fi romance “Starman,” wherein an extraterrestrial entity, summoned by a Voyager probe, takes on the type of a girl’s late husband. Determined to return house, the “starman” enlists assistance from the widow, Jenny Hayden, to journey with him to the opposite aspect of the nation to rendezvous along with his mom ship.

Initially cautious, Jenny step by step warms as much as the Starman’s harmless curiosity and childlike marvel about Earth. Their bond deepens over the course of their street journey, and step by step, Jenny begins to see the Starman not simply as an alien, however as a being who’s able to empathy and understanding. Their journey proves to Jenny that, for the primary time since she misplaced her husband, she’s able to new love, and to the Starman that he’s not alone within the galaxy.

Every time Venus and Mars meet, they inform a love story. In current weeks, Venus and Mars in Aquarius, the signal of the unusual customer from one other planet, have every carried out battle with Pluto, like Jenny Hayden recovering from private loss and Starman dropping his manner house. As Venus and Mars make their first conjunction in two years, they sink gratefully – if a bit the more serious for put on – into a young embrace.

The conjunction of Venus and Mars is a resetting level within the life cycle of relationships. Within the considerably indifferent realm of Aquarius, Venus and Mars reawaken the love in us, starting with a gathering of the minds and a sense of deep friendship. And the place the sunshine of shut relationships might have dimmed, this can be a probability to make them burn vibrant once more.

Dreaming with Your Eyes Open

It was a bit chilly in San Diego, so I constructed a fireplace and plopped down on the sofa to jot down this column. After scribbling a few strains on two completely different sheets of paper earlier than wadding them up and tossing them within the fireplace, I sat for a short while and stared vacantly out the window. I loved watching the timber, the daylight shifting out and in of cloud cowl. Considering of nothing a lot. Letting my thoughts unbend in lengthy, enjoyable yoga poses.

I’d been making an attempt to jot down about Mercury getting into Pisces (Feb. 22, 2024, 11:29 pm PST, via March 9), and naturally that is just about how Mercury works in that drifting, imaginative signal.

Mercury in Aquarius, the earlier signal, is mentally vigorous and clear-eyed; it would merely doc what it noticed, or be so laser-focused on a process that it overlooks the surroundings altogether. However Mercury in Pisces works a bit like daydreaming: What you’re taking a look at is just not actually what you’re seeing. After I gaze off into the gap, my thoughts is one million miles and sometimes a few years away. I’m reviewing recollections. I’m imagining the long run. I’m dreaming with my eyes open. That’s how the planet of notion works, typically, when it’s in Pisces.


Annually because the winter solstice approaches, I feel, “Hey – let’s wrap some twinkly lights across the entrance porch posts!” I pull open the drawer within the hallway that accommodates a large rat-king tangle of strand lights, so jumbled and hopelessly knotted that my coronary heart sinks on the sight of them.

After which I shut the drawer for one more 12 months.

At every Full Moon, we’re revealed to ourselves. This Virgo Full Moon (Feb. 24, 2024, 4:30 am PST, 5.23 Virgo/Pisces) stands in opposition to the Solar and Saturn, collectively in Pisces; and what’s revealed are the methods wherein our lives are jumbled and knotted, in want of order. Look to the Pisces home of your chart – that’s the place you’ll discover the tangle of strand lights. After which, look throughout the wheel to Virgo’s home, as a result of that’s the place you’ll discover the important thing to untangling the knots. Taking a giant outdated amorphous, Pisces blob of overwhelm and patiently selecting away at it and soothing it into order is certainly one of Virgo’s superpowers.

After all, the world itself appears to be hopelessly tangled and overwhelming some days. The Virgo Full Moon is on the Sabian image 6 Virgo, A merry-go-round, and that’s how it’s in Virgo’s world – going round and round, performing the identical duties many times, every time making an attempt to do it higher. However to count on perfection of ourselves or anybody else is to misconceive Virgo, which simply needs to enhance and to be helpful. And this Saturn-tinged Full Moon presents the grit and self-discipline to do exactly that.

Sufficient (Plus a Little Bit Additional)

How a lot will we really need so as to be joyful? It varies from individual to individual, in fact. However happiness research have proven that past what is required for needed bills, plus a little bit additional, more cash doesn’t actually deliver extra happiness. It may possibly present extra pleasure and luxury, however that’s probably not the identical factor. Many individuals on their demise mattress who would give every thing they personal for a bit extra time.

As the cash planet Venus in Aquarius squares Jupiter in luxury-loving Taurus (Feb. 24, 2024, 8:01 pm PST), take a while to think about how a lot of your freedom, what number of hours of your life – essentially the most valuable commodity of all – are exchanged for issues that don’t deliver you all that a lot happiness. Venus in Aquarius is a reminder of how scrumptious it may be to really feel liberated from extra stuff, and to reclaim the time that’s traded for getting and sustaining it.
