Hello lovely ones and happy almost March!
If you are in Los Angeles or visiting, please come join me tomorrow night, this Friday March 1, 8pm at Wanderlust in Hollywood for a Soulstrology Soundbath to welcome the month of March, prepare for the forthcoming Mercury retrograde and the Pisces New Moon! Early bird tickets are available from Wanderlust and you can also rock up that evening and join us. I hope to see you there!
Onward to March 2019 and the Soulstrology theme of Mindful Movement…
This month sees the first retrograde of 2019 with Mercury turning retrograde (in Pisces) the day before the Pisces New Moon. This is a particularly significant retrograde due to the fact that the wounded healer Chiron has finally moved out of Pisces after an almost nine year transit.
This marks a new era for each of us in relation to the Pisces ruled themes of life and the Pisces ruled parts of our unique charts (you can read more about it on my Soulstrology blog here).
Which makes March 2019’s focus on the Pisces ruled parts of our lives (thanks to good old Mercury) even more significant as it requires us to hone in on certain themes and do all things RE a la retrograde, but even more so, to RESET ourselves for a sweet, new chapter.
With Mercury retrograde taking place the day before next Wednesday’s Pisces New Moon, makes that New moon and corresponding lunar cycle somewhat clouded and unclear.
Now this isn’t a ‘bad’ thing by any means, it just means we have to be mindful as we move through the month of March 2019 acknowledging that not everything is necessarily as it appears and that there may be some muddledness to work through over the next lunar cycle.
Mindful movement this month requires us to move slower, take extra care, pay attention to all the details. the unseen and unspoken. To not engage in knee jerk reactions as events unfold, but rather to take our time to mindfully respond.
It requires us to flow rather like the water sign of Pisces, and move with the currents, rather than to try and swim against the tide.
Mantra of the Month:
I know that my only job this month is to be mindful.
Mindful with my words, my thoughts, my actions and reactions.
I trust that by adopting this attitude of mindfulness, I will more effortlessly navigate whatever the cosmos throws my way.
I choose to believe that whatever this month brings is necessary and plays a part in my evolution.
With this in mind, I do not judge anything as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ but rather I observe and reserve judgment.
I choose to adopt an attitude of responding over reacting trusting that this will serve me and others best.
As always, key cosmic dates for your diaries are below.
I am wishing you all a mindful month, may unexpected magic come your way!
