Starcodes Feb 23, 2024

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed this week unless we can deal with one thing at a time. We can see too much, be farsighted, aware of all that needs to be done in our life and in the world. But as we could also feel unusually sensitive and a tad delicate, that can fell like too much to process as Mercury joins the Sun in intuitive Pisces, we can be daunted by that giant pile of work. If the whole view seems overwhelming, start with one improving thing.

To break that down, the planets that normally rule our emotions, Venus and Mars run conjunct in thoughtful, mental Aquarius, which can make it harder to see those close to us but lets us get a good overview of the world’s woes. Our hearts think and try to be objective.

At the same time, mental Mercury enters absorptive Pisces, the sign opposite the one that it rules -and a sign associated with intuition, emotional sensitivity, and ability to think in symbols and mind maps rather than to think linearly or objectively. Our mind feels everything deeply. It’s important that that our ability to see the big picture doesn’t swamp us out with too much to do- to fix our house, to achieve a goal, to create world peace. This can all feel paradoxical but it pushes us to get our head and our hearts to work together.

A full Moon in Virgo over the weekend asked us to take stock of our world to see what needs improvement…
