Mercury is now in his sign of debilitation (Pisces), and he will stay in Pisces until March 27th.  Pisces is an idealistic sign which favors creativity (especially music), spirituality, and compassion.  Because of the emotional nature of this influence, Mercury – a planet of intellect and neutrality – can become a bit overwhelmed in this idealistic sign.  In this cycle, Mercury will be conjunct his good friend Venus who is exalted in Pisces and is retrograde.  Jupiter aspects this conjunction from the sign of Virgo and forms a positive combination of three benefic planets.

Because Venus and Jupiter are retrograde and Mercury is debilitated, there are imperfections to this combination of planets.  Dreams and goals can be delayed, misinformation can be even more prolific and, due to the idealistic nature of Pisces, we can feel as if the negative forces hold all of the power in the world.  It can be helpful to remember that what goes on in the outer world is not the totality of our existence.

This can be a tiring time for those who spend the majority of their time taking care of their physical lives while ignoring their inner lives.  During this time period meditation, music, and higher knowledge are activities which are favored.  These activities can go a long way toward calming and harmonizing our minds.

It is apparent that we are living through a time period that marks a time of world-wide change.  Perhaps history will compare this shift to the movement from hunter/gatherer to farming or from agriculture to industry – movements which strongly affected all of humanity. Our current epoch appears to be on steroids , and the outrageous chaos is extreme.  We must participate according to our daily role, but we do have a choice as to the state of our minds during these challenges.  It is always our choice to choose happiness over unhappiness, harmony over disharmony, and love over hatred.

If we choose to be conscious and peaceful, there are tools available.  One of the best tools that I’ve used throughout my own life has been to work with the rhythm of the planets.  This approach did not put a million dollars into my bank account, nor did it remove my daily challenges.  It did, however, give me multiple opportunities to not worsen my challenges through my reactions to events or other people.  By working with the rhythms and cycles, I discovered greater harmony in my life and greatly decreased my stress levels.

I have decided to offer a program which will, based on each lunar month, present information which can assist us in flowing with the cycles of the universe.  The program initially will last for six months and will start with the New Moon of March, 2017.  In addition to the monthly report, I’ve included a basic information packet to help you work, organize, and understand the transits better.  If you are already a client, I will email you a basic copy of your own chart so that you can work with the changing planetary patterns along with your own basic information. A six month commitment will be necessary. Additionally, a closed Facebook group is going to be opened so that further discussion can take place.  I will check in on it and answer basic questions; however, I will not be analyzing individual charts.

If you have additional questions, please email me.  I am going to be heading back to the states soon, so if you would like to participate in this program, please let me know as soon as possible since, once I leave Quebec, I may not be readily available for a week or so.
