If this week has you feeling a bit sluggish and craving an escape from the humdrum, be it a vacation or just a stroll in your imagination, you are likely feeling the effects of two very flowy, floaty transits going on this week in the cosmos.
First, the Sun made its annual conjunction with Neptune on March 10th or 11th, depending on where you are in the world. With the Sun amplifying the meandering qualities of Neptune, you may have felt it a bit hard to get motivated or stay on top of your to-do list.
While technically the outer planets are unassigned in the tarot, it can easily be attached with the Hanged Man card, which is equally unassigned. This is a card of taking a pause to reflect, observe and get a new outlook. Which is precisely what a Sun-Neptune conjunction calls for! With the conjunction occurring in Pisces, in particular, now is not a time to engage in major decision making and, in fact, you may get some confusing or mixed messages from higher-ups that may quickly be reversed or prove too good to be true. That’s because the fluid, nebulous quality of Neptune in the double-bodied and fantasy-loving Pisces can befuddle even the brightest leaders (Sun) among us.
Then on the 13th, the Moon conjoins with the Sun for a new moon in Pisces. This should prove to be a lovely lunar cycle, the start of a nice season of increasingly positive transits that will eventually see Jupiter in Pisces from May through July. From a tarot perspective, we can a take a cue from the Sun, High Priestess and Moon cards. Listen to your gut and disconnect.
This new moon will be the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the dreamy, healing energy of the Pisces lunar cycle. That is to say, take a moment to enjoy actually being in the moment. This is a great time to get out and do some gardening, have a picnic, read a book in the sun, or otherwise engage in a meditative or personal escape and focus on restoration. After a full year of living under the effects of the coronavirus and in the shadow of 2020, this is a well-earned reprieve.
In peace & love,
