• Astrology During Pisces

    The Sun enters the sign of Pisces on February 18th at 4:04 p.m., Mountain Time. Pisces is a water sign and is associated with the dreamy Neptune. Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac and represents wisdom and intuition. Many artists, healers, counselors, psychics and yoga instructors are Pisces. This sign likes altered states of consciousness and just needs to pick the most positive way to get into another space. Meditation or medication is often their choice . . . or maybe both.

    The month of Pisces starts with a bang as the next day, February 19th, is a Super Moon Full Moon in Virgo. The Full Moon cycle is coinciding with the change of the signs, which doesn’t happen often. It’s just bringing the new sign more energy right at the beginning of the sign. Here is the definition of a Super Moon, according to Wikipedia: super moon is a full moon or a new moon that nearly coincides with perigee—the closest that the Moon comes to the Earth in its elliptic orbit—resulting in a slightly larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as viewed from Earth.

    This month will bring a Mercury retrograde that will last from March 5th – 28th. Mardi gras is on March 5th and is a fascinating combination with the retrograde. Is it the last night to party before the retrograde begins? Even though many don’t look forward to retrogrades, it is actually the best time to rethink, regroup and refocus. It’s perfect for doing Feng Shui and letting go of things. Do I really need that or could someone else use it more than I could? This Mercury retrograde is in Pisces, so it will have a focus on art, music and creativity. Do you want to paint that wall and redecorate a room? Now is the time. Also, since Pisces is the intuitive of the Zodiac, take some time to reflect on your life. Maybe it’s time to actually start meditating and not just talking about it.

    This is a huge astrological event happening this month that is called an ingress. When a planet enters a new sign, it’s called an ingress. This is a big one. The slow-moving planet, Uranus, will be entering the sign of Taurus on March 6th.  Uranus remains in a sign for about nine years and will therefore be in Taurus until 2026. This marks a new phase in society. Uranus is the Rebel of all the planets and his purpose is to bring drastic change to a slow-moving world. Anything outdated and antiquated will be gone fairly soon. The domain of Taurus will be the area of change. This earth sign is involved with money, business, real estate, the environment and security in general. The stable sign of Taurus doesn’t like sudden changes at all, so it is not a natural sign for Uranus to enjoy easily. They are at odd with each other just because of their different personalities. Who is the strongest and will win? Uranus will always win and change the sign. . Even stubborn Taurus. But it will be a struggle to say the least. New styles of commerce, specifically online shopping, have totally changed how people shop. Big box stores are likely going away like the dinosaurs. If Uranus represents technology and Taurus is bio systems, this phase will bring the beginning of cyborgs. Chips will be implanted. This is such an important ingress that I wrote an entire article about what will happen during this phase. Here is that article if you want to be refreshed. http://susiecox.com/blog/uranus-in-taurus-barcelona-is-beckoning

    Here is an excerpt from that article:

    Uranus is the genius of the Zodiac and is associated with inventions and new technologies. Uranus moves society forward by breaking down old paradigms. Any oppression is targeted by Uranus and will not be tolerated. This is collective consciousness on a global scale for the purpose of dismantling the old to rebuild it better. Anything antiquated will be upgraded. The internet is a perfect Aquarian concept with people connecting with each other all over the world, yet remaining separate. Social media is totally Uranus. Radical change, verging on chaos is necessary to have a resurrection. Expect the unexpected! Lightening is the weather connected with Uranus. The ideal of Uranus is for each and every person to have a voice – and use it personally and collectively. (It is interesting to note that as I write this, the US government is shutdown with no progress being made to reopen it).

    As far as the visible planets, Mars is the lone planet in the evening sky, except for them the Moon travels past him as the Moon heads toward the Full Moon. The rest of the visible planets are in the predawn sky. If you get up about ½ before sunrise, you will see brilliant Venus, bright Jupiter and dim Saturn along the Ecliptic. For an added treat, the Moon will move past them all from February 28th – March 2nd. Yes, it will be worth getting up early to see them.

    See you next time for Aries and the Spring Equinox!


  • What's Up for Your Sign During Pisces?

    Pisces

    Happy Birthday, Pisces. This will be quite a birthday month for you since Mercury will be doing a retrograde in Pisces from March 5th – 27th. When that happens, you have a great opportunity to change your life from the inside out. You will just not be drawn to do the same things as you had before. The outdated patterns will dissolve and leave way for the new you.

    Aries

    The wild planet Uranus has been in Aries since 2011 and will be leaving to enter Taurus on March 6th. This is your very last chance to wrap up any old unfinished business . . . the older the better. You will feel driven to tackle the remnants of this last, chaotic phase in your life. Soon you will feel free.

    Taurus

    Ok, Taurus, the time is now for the Rebel Uranus to enter your sign. On March 6th, the slow-moving planet Uranus will enter Taurus and will remain there until 2026. This is the very beginning of a new, sudden change that will be rocking you for maybe years to come. Are you ready for a new career? Do you want to move? Are you ready for a totally new life? If you said yes sto any of those questions, you are up for a wild ride, dear Taurus. Fasten your seatbelt.

    Gemini

    You are in a creative time in your life, dear Gemini and this month will bring a spike to the frequency of your brilliant ideas. The middle of March is the best time to present your project to your advisors. Be sure to open your mind to new ways of doing things. Don’t just repeat the old but come up with something fresh and maybe even a little shocking. The surprise element is a good thing.

    Cancer

    Your power date this month is the weekend of March 15th. Give a spontaneous, almost impromptu family or friend reunion at that time and it will be a roaring success. Make comfort food like cookies and brownies and talk about old times. If you have photo albums handy, that would ensure a memorable event. 

    Leo

    This will be a lucky month for you, grand Leo, especially the middle of the month. In fact, you can hardly go wrong. Many of the other planets are supporting your Leo style by offering you some pretty incredible opportunities. You’ll have a hard time saying no. But remember that you can’t say yes to them all, so discretion is advised. Make sure to finish your due diligence before investing time or money.

    Virgo

    This astrological month will kick off with a Super Full Moon in your sign of Virgo on February 19th. A Super Moon is when the Moon is a little closer to the Earth and will therefore appear a bit larger. It will bring more light to you, dear Virgo. This is your month to shine brightly, just like the Super Full Moon!

    Libra

    The weekend of February 22nd and 23rd is a perfect time for you to dress up and go out on the town. Invite your classiest friends and do something special. Maybe go to an art opening or a celebrate a birthday party with some friends. If you are in the mood to do some shopping, this is the perfect weekend to splurge . . . you know you want to and deserve it. Astrology gives you permission!

    Scorpio

    Scorpio is one of the least social signs of the Zodiac and mostly prefers their own company. Good news, there is a fun weekend that will coax even the most private Scorpio out of the cave. Please go out on February 23rd and 24th and you will be pleasantly surprised at how much fun you will have. The sexy side of Scorpio will want to come out and play.

    Sagittarius

    You will likely feel some restlessness the last week in February. Are you in the mood for a road trip? This is the week. Be spontaneous and choose a destination that is new to you and is maybe out of your comfort zone. You are ready to try something that scares you a little . . . just a little.

    Capricorn

    Capricorn is the sign en Vogue now and will be for quite a few years. There is a party of slow-moving planet in Capricorn now.  In fact, just tell people you are a Capricorn and you will likely be the focus of attention. Not that Capricorns particularly care to be in the limelight, but you do like to learn about yourself. These next few years are your best times to come into your own. Are you ready?

    Aquarius

    Lucky Aquarius! Venus, the planet of beauty and joy, will be in your sign from March 1st – 25th. This is definitely your time to indulge in your senses. Pampering yourself is a necessity and not a choice during those dates. Are you ready for a new look? New clothes? Maybe a new hairstyle? Do it and blame it on Venus.


  • Astrology During Aries

    The Sun enters the sign of Aries on March 20th at 10:19 a.m., Mountain Time. Aries is a fire sign and is associated with the warrior of the Zodiac, Mars.  Aries is the pioneer of all the signs and starts the Astrological New Year. This fire sign likes to drive fast, talks loudly and be the first in line. Coffee is the drug of choice for the speedy Aries. Of course, bright red it their color.

    Welcome to the Spring Equinox! Each year the beginning of Aries marks the new season of spring. Like Stonehenge, people all over the world are celebrating the Equinox. The year is divided into quarters for the four different seasons. Aries and Libra are the two Equinoxes and start the spring and fall seasons. Equinox means equal nights and is when the length of the days and nights are equal. Cancer and Capricorn are the two Solstices and start the summer and winter seasons. On the Summer Solstice, the days are the longest. On the Winter Solstice, the days are the shortest. This is of course only for the Northern Hemisphere, since the seasons are opposite in the Southern Hemisphere.

    We start the spring off with Mercury turning retrograde from March 22nd through April 15th.  This Mercury Retrogrades lands in Aries, which is the sign of new beginnings. This is the perfect time for a spring housecleaning and getting rid of what you are no longer using. This will also be good for changing deep patterns in your life. What do you want to release? Aries will let it go and Fast! Interestingly enough, Mercury turns direct on April 15th, which is also the New Moon in Aries. That timing will help move forward any sudden changes that you want to create.

    This year has two Blue Moons, which is pretty rare. A Blue Moon is the second Full Moon in a month. There was a Full Moon on January 1st and a Blue Moon on January 31st. February didn’t even have one Full Moon. That leaves March with two Full Moons. So March 1st is a Full Moon and March 31st is the second Blue Moon of the year. It will also be the last Blue Moon of 2018. Even though this is just a synchronization of the calendar and the lunar cycle, it’s still important. What do two Blue Moons mean? I think it’s a gift to humanity to help uplift the world right now.

    Mars has now entered the sign of Capricorn and will join both Saturn and Pluto. Mars joins Saturn on April 2nd and will join Pluto on April 26th. Capricorn is the sign of government, rules and regulations and corporations. Mars is always a trigger to release the bigger group of planets. So we can all watch these dates for peaks in that area, but the entire month of April is charged. If you have important projects you are working on, these are push dates to focus on them.

    Regarding the planets, we can see all the visible planets now. Venus is now the “Evening Star” and can be seen after sunset. She will be up in the evening sky until October, so we can see her for a while now. I love Venus seeing her after sunset. Mercury has been traveling with Venus and can both be seen low along the western horizon right after the Sun sets. Mercury is much not as bright as Venus and you might need binoculars to help see him more easily. Once Mercury retrogrades on March 23rd, it will disappear into the glow of the Sun and can’t be seen. Try to see Venus and Mercury together for a real treat!

    Have a fabulous month and I’ll see you in Taurus!
