Weekend Weather Feb 28- March 1
Updated: Feb 29, 2020
Mercury continues to move backward through watery Pisces. Here Mercury has been scooping up mud and broken debris from the ocean floor but also treasure - shiny baubles worthy of closer inspection.
Venus, the planet of beauty, love and relationships is in a hard aspect all weekend with Pluto (death, transformation, breakdowns, and breakthroughs) and Saturn (Lord of Karma). Together these planets tell us that what is coming up for you now is rooted in previous trauma or in negative experiences with caregivers and/or people in positions of power. This of course also speaks to your childhood and those experiences that have left you wounded and feeling “unsafe”.
These squares are also potentially volatile which can lead to - specifically - sex-related crimes and vicious attacks. (Sadly we can expect an escalation of attacks on women and women's rights and on the LGBQT community).
Air and Fire signs are being asked to take a closer look at the things and people they cling to for the continuation of negative patterns and feelings. For many people, the perpetuation of struggle and misery feels “safe” and is preferable to having to face the unknown.
There is a very high probability as I have mentioned before of someone from your past returning while Mercury is in a backward motion. If you were in a relationship with this person, Mercury Retrograde bodes well for your future as a couple. Mercury will (re)energize your relationship through improved connection (truth-telling and openness). This is also a good time to make amends for any previous wrongdoing.
The sky at this time also encourages discernment.
Venus squaring Saturn asks you to “see for certain”. Not every shiny bauble is for you. In other words, not all people, opportunities or situations will support your peace and wellness.
So the question that needs answering this weekend is:
What and who is for you?
Lastly, Mercury Retrograde reminds you to slow down. Don’t force things. In Pisces, Mercury invites you to unplug and dream. Make time this weekend for any or all of the following:
Fiction reading, journalling, naps, and meditation.
