I mentioned earlier this month, when Mercury retrograde began, that might feel like a struggle to get your thinking straight.
But maybe that’s the point of this month’s astrology.
Our society is so concerned with getting from A to B. With making the rules and enforcing them. The demands for absolute perfection are unrealistic. And often misguided.
And when things don’t go the way we think they are supposed to – when someone says something that we don’t expect, or don’t like; when something runs late; when a commitment or contract isn’t honoured; when we think we could do it better; when deadlines are missed or meetings go totally off track – it’s so easy to get thrown off by it.
But maybe that’s the lesson that the universe keeps trying to teach us: There is no schedule. There is no structure. There is no one way to be, or speak, or look, or feel.
And the rules? They don’t matter as much as you think.
Yet we keep trying to create architecture out of time, love and energy.
We keep failing the lesson, so it keeps coming up again and again. When we try hold on too tightly to one ideal, or one way, or one expectation, it all falls apart.
We forget that we live in a world of billions of people and infinite possibilities.
Now, I’m not saying that this means we should run wild and wreak havoc on each other – this is not about going from one extreme to another.
What I mean is that it doesn’t hurt to look at where we are being too rigid, or too hard on ourselves or on others and ask:
“Why do I have this expectation, anyway?”
Do things have to be perfect every time?
Do things always have to be exactly as planned?
Do we always have to get our way, no matter what?
Does one view, one opinion, or one path really have all the answers?
There are always different ways of doing things and seeing things.
Every day in this universe is different, and the things that we may get hung up on today usually have little to no bearing on the direction of this universe a month from now. Or a year from now.
And in another lifetime? We can only dream of knowing what that might look like.
Yesterday, on Sunday, March 24, Mercury conjunct Neptune, opening up our creative and spiritual channels. The energy in the air right now can feel a little strange.
Synchronicities and intuitive hits may be more common, but if people are a little less reliable, or if things aren’t making much sense, know that this energy is also cause for confusion.
Allow your mind to engage in magical thinking. Let your thoughts go to new places. Let yourself see beyond the mundane so that your energy is not misdirected towards the little things that don’t really matter.
On Tuesday, March 26, Venus enters Pisces, heightening our spiritual and creative senses once again. Venus will be in Pisces until April 20, giving us just under a month to continue to hone our spiritual and artistic desires.
What do you want to feel more connected to now?
What rule are you ready to break free from, if it means having a greater sense of peace and purpose?
Where are you ready to part the veils and gain a glimpse of something new and unexpected, something that can’t be found on an itinerary or in a manual?
Like the tarot’s Hierophant, we can hold tight to rules and traditions, but we have to remember that what we see is not all there is.
We must consciously work to unlock deeper understandings of our lives and our worlds so that we can lift the veil on our purposes.
“I am building trust in life’s uncertainties.”
Until next time,
