Horoscope for the Week: March 7, 2014

Michael O'Connor's horoscope for the week of March 7

  • Mar. 6, 2014 11:00 a.m.

Tip of the Week:

Some big energy patterns are active now according to the planetary alignments. The major players are Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto which remain in close aspect and will for the next 5-6 weeks especially. Uranus and Pluto alone will remain actively engaged until late 2015. Neptune too plays a key role in this line-up. As with all planet ‘influences’, the expression hosts both positive and more challenging themes.

 

Regarding this trio of far planet influence, the negative effects refer to violent revolutionary activity. Impatience may be described as the main issue. Misuse of power is also featured. Positively, these revolutions are destined to deepen the convictions and implement the footings of democracy. Petty despotisms simply will not be tolerated and political leaders will be directly and indirectly forced to comply with the general will of the people.

 

The negative potentials of Neptune in Pisces are mass denial, delusion and deception, especially in as much as the information war uses deeper concepts and perceptions to its own end. We certainly are seeing some of that now with the conviction that matter precedes consciousness. Such thinking supports materialism and nihilism (belief that life has no inherent meaning or purpose) in general and pharmaceuticals in particular.

 

Positively, Neptune in Pisces (2011-2026) represents an initiation into a new quality of spiritual consciousness. Given the fact that a global culture is emerging it is quite likely that it will have a global impact. Fortunately, there are indications that the metaphysical appreciation of forces and dimensions beyond the material will be recognized and acknowledged as fact. Quantum Physics will play a role and Astrology and other branches of metaphysical and holistic science will rise in popularity.

 

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

You have probably been pushing hard these days; now for some downtime. For you this could include quality time with friends. At deeper levels, a fresh start in your most intimate relationships is likely and ideal. A romantic getaway would be timely. Open communications and discussions about the future will match your mood to vent your visions.

 

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

The time has come to be that much more deliberate in your actions. By slowing down you can actually do things better or make improvements where needed. Yet, be aware of tendencies to be too critical of yourself and others. Take deeper breaths and acknowledge yourself for achievements to date.  As well, enjoy more quality time with friends for a while.

 

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

It is time to do the next meaningful thing with or in your life and to get recognized and rewarded for it. The scope and scale of how much recognition and reward depends on you, your stage in life, your circumstance, destiny, attitude and the choices make. The other big question though is: what is it? Ask with deep sincerity and you will receive.

 

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)

A search for deeper meaning continues. While we each need our own answers it is natural to turn to ‘higher authorities’. As is life, there are ever many levels and sectors where these sources operate. They can be literal and material and/or archetypal and spiritual. Whichever one(s) you are dealing with, assert your position that your involvement must feel meaningful.

 

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 23)

Some cycles are deeper than others and some more intense as well, like the one you are experiencing now. It can perhaps best be described as a healing journey. These are seldom the fun kind. However, they do have value and purpose. A main challenge is to interpret them for what they truly are. For best results, communicate with someone who can really listen.

 

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Cultivating new and healthier relationships is an important focus now. Some of these are linked to your own lifestyle habits. Is there anything you would like or feel you need to change? Sometimes the best leverage is soberly considering the cost of perpetuating the old patterns. Summon the courage to see your blind spots; get vertical and get going.

 

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)

Creating a healthier rhythm and flow continues. The time has come to negotiate a new deal. This includes entering new territory, literally and/or figuratively. Yet, the first real move has to occur in your own mind. Choices and decisions must be made. You cannot please all the people. So, ‘to thine own self be true’ and remember, healthy is a cornerstone of happy.

 

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

You are in a creative leadership cycle. Yet, before you can advance you may have to clear, heal and resolve matters from the past. Sometimes the best first step is to create a space at home or at work that is inspiring and empowering. Clean your office and move furniture perhaps to re-set and refresh. Whatever you do or how, clear the clutter.

 

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)

There’s no place like home and home is where your heart is, literally. Yet, you may be wondering who you are let alone where you live. This can be quite disconcerting. You may feel like you are in the nexus, in limbo, somewhere between here and there. Well, that makes sense looking at your charts. Remember, life is a journey and you are en route.

 

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)

You are in the mood to cover a lot of ground. Hopefully circumstances are harmonizing with your flow and determination. With all the planets currently in retrograde, there may be more twists and turns than usual. Rather than impatiently force and control, contemplate, communicate, correspond and brainstorm with other key power players.

 

Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)

Deciphering what constitutes your highest priorities is a main focus now. These will likely be linked to experiencing harmonious and fulfilling relationships. You are gearing-up for things to shift in this regard. You want to feel freer and more fulfilled. Consider that part of the deal is linked to shifting your perspectives and consequently your approach.

 

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Taking pioneering leads will feel right now. Yet, things may not be so straightforward anymore and may not be again soon. At worst, it is difficult to relax or feel at peace. This is an opportune time to clarify and aspire to realize your highest ideals. Emotional self-control is linked to your breath and to expressing gratitude for all the good in your life, now.
