Starcodes March 3, 2023 Heather Roan Robbins

This week the mood is sensitive, nervous, and fierce. Our energy runs at a lower ebb and our nerve endings feel sensitized with the sun, Mercury, Neptune, and soon Saturn, in sensitive and receptive Pisces.

Even the energy from ordinarily activating Mars is now uncertain and diffused as Mars in nervy Gemini approaches a square to softening, dreamy Neptune. That Mars-Neptune square can lead us to question everyone’s motivation and either idealize our anger, or, potentially, let it go. We choose how we respond.
