March 12, 2012 – Mercury Retrograde and Solar Power

MERCURY stationed last night just after Midnight, PDT, to go RETROGRADE for a three week initiatory passage in self, communicating self to others, and refining our unique gifts that we share with the world.  When MERCURY is RETROGRADE, it creates an energetic fabric of life that seems to alchemize us, through glitches, miscommunications, paradoxes, or mix-ups. These small and yet often frustrating events really are our medicine. We may think life is all about sending faxes and getting to appointments on time, but Spirit sometimes would like us to stop all that and relax for a moment. Sometimes we are not  paying attention and life is just flying by and when Mercury Retrogrades, life says to us, wait a minute, life does not always move forward, sometimes it goes backward–and for good reason, because we need a chance to review, to reconnect, to re-negotiate, renew, revitalize, recheck, revisit, rebirth, or renovate the way we are functioning. If a limitation arises in the next three weeks, its a good idea to “tune in,” and listen more deeply, to what the universe is actually saying. “Slow Down,” perhaps or, “What are you REALLY DOING?”

MOON is in the VOID all day, giving a “slippery energy,” on top of the trickster energy of the MERCURY RETRO.  MOON enters fiery Sagittarius for late night inspiration, finally grounding back into the planetary aspect dance at 11:53 pm PDT.

SUN TRINES MOON at 11:30 am, PDT, then goes VOID between Scorpio and Sagittarius. Masculine and Feminine are dancing from deep emotional waters to higher mind fire. This dance of masculine and feminine has gone on since the beginning of time. It is the dance of magnetism that is the seed of the whole universe. Some indigenous elders tell a story that has a man and a woman passionately loving each other, in deep deep communion and dancing. This divine love keeps the whole universe alive, which mirrors this divine dance, over and over again, in bees, flowers, fish, cats, birds, and us. We are made of this dance.

JUPITER TRINES PLUTO at 9:43 pm PDT. We expand our power, our depth, and our economy today. This TRINE is the exact TRINE in the GRAND TRINE in Earth of March!  Today is a poignant magical point of this triangle of magical manifestation of our dreams and our fulfillment here on earth. We do not need to settle for anything less than our soul’s most exalted dreams. We can manifest them one tiny step at a time. Today is a day to honor these dreams with all our heart and will, no matter how unrealistic or “far away,” they may seem. Today’s energy has the ability to magnetize to us, our most inner heart’s dreams!  Its a day to discipline the mind, into thinking only those things we wish to magnify!

May we focus our attention in this day, so as to ignite our deepest inner calls, with clarity and intention!
