In this week’s full edition, Eric explores the possible effects of Venus retrograde in Aries, which will take place from this Saturday until April 15. He considers this as a part of the current Pisces/Aries astrology, and how it fits in to that picture: the morphing and melding between dreams and reality; the internet as a form of astral plane; and how the individual experience relates to the collective realm. As Venus causes us to question what we project onto the world, we are invited to speak our truth.

If Your Birthday is March 3
(The Day of Design) | Pisces Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
The allure of social media is that it ‘connects’ us with so many other people. But what is the true quality of that contact? Notice whether you find yourself longing to break free from your habitual forms of online relating. You might also feel the need to create a little space within your in-the-flesh relationships. That can stir up anxiety. But remember: granting oneself (or a loved one) some freedom simply means that more of you (or them) can come through — and be appreciated.

How often have you stared a persistent psychological hang-up or hurt in the proverbial face and thought, “My mind is stuck, and I’ll never be able to fix myself”? If you experience that sensation today, bear in mind that it is just a sensation. Healing is always possible, even if it’s not always quick or easy. Even with professional help, sometimes we can’t just think or rationalize our way to feeling better. Methods that lean a little more on the energetic, physical, psychic or emotional side of things can help us to re-pattern and heal in ways that side-step mental blocks and loops. Today the Pisces Sun opposes the asteroid Psyche in Virgo. That’s the image of facing a psychological wound that feels like it can’t be healed. But that sensation is a lie. And with Memoria, Poseidon, Chariklo and Teharonhiawako all making favorable aspects, it looks like there’s help from your physical and emotional bodies — if you’re willing to give it a try.
Thank you! ((((())))))
