The upcoming Pisces New Moon of March 1st is very much about making QUANTUM leaps of faith, with the New Moon in a super harmonious alignment with Jupiter, which represents our capacity for deeply rooted inner faith in life, and faith in our purpose, and dreams. During this time we are SO supported in experiencing our awakened spirits soar to new dimensions of optimism, confidence…and luck!
Also, the planet of action, courage & development of will (Mars) is currently transiting the partnership-and-diplomacy-oriented Libra, AND turning retrograde the same day on March 1st, so there may be a dose of hesitation in the air on a full-out “individualistic” outer action. Sooo, while inner confidence and faith are building, the training in courage, disciplined will, and conflict resolution starts! Mars in Libra is about development of a collaborative strategy to achieve goals (with style!), rather than just pushing forward impatiently on our own!!!

With 4 planets changing their apparent motion in the next week, it may feel confusing on the energetic, information, and communication highways, especially if lacking alignment, clarity, and commitment to our direction and purpose in life, work, and relationships. Non-truths and illusions are up for a major review! Pushing forward simply for the sake of pushing forward, will NOT work.
Pick your battles & words diplomatically as we may expect the unexpected during this time with things, opinions & decisions feeling as if they are “up in the air” a bit, unless consciously grounded towards a purposeful goal & inspired action. Be mindful, and articulate about what your intentions are, and what or who you are aligned with. Consciously choose to offer SOME clarity to receive MORE clarity, and consciously choose to be part of a collaborative solution!
How do you handle your Mars? Here are FIVE questions for your reflection:
1) What are you on edge & frustrated about right now?
2) How do you discharge energy?
3) How are you handling your stress, conflict and/or anger about the situation?
4) Are you impatient, self-centered, and antagonistic; or inclusive of others’ input in the process?
5) Do you stand up for yourself and assert yourself with style towards a joint solution; or impose your will in depreciation and aggressive conquering of opinions of others (whether it’s directly or subversively)?
This is what Mars in Libra, especially during its retrograde cycle (March 1-May 19, 2014) will be about: a collective training in assertiveness; strategic, creative, and peaceful conflict resolution; utilizing collaborative strategy & diplomacy vs domineering and/or intimidation tactics.
Belligerence, hostility, aggression, even antagonism, unfriendliness & resentment will be singled out and challenged. Mars prefers a straightforward singlehanded approach, however in Libra, the sign which is opposite from its natural sign of rulership, where it feels a whole lot more comfortable (Aries), it is required to compromise, be fair, and negotiate. To be tolerant, considerate, respectable, inclusive, balanced in its approach; and most certainly more refined, elegant, and cultivated.
[box] What you resist will persist, especially during Mars retrograde.[/box]
What you resist will persist here, especially during Mars retrograde. Instead of opposing the process of co-creation, co-resolution, and mutual solution-finding, compose yourself and engage others in the process. After all is said and done, you will be glad you did!
Time to de-stress & re-negotiate, re-define & re-commit!
Re-activate? Perhaps, providing you are super clear about what you are really activating in your life or business, really understanding the energetics behind it, to avoid activating & perpetuating that which is a contrast or a shadow of what you truly desire.
