It’s the 9th week of the year and the card of the week is the 6 of Cups. March, the 3rd month of hte year, also starts this week and the card of the month is the Lovers. Shit’s about to get real with love and relationships as Venus stations retrograde at 1:08 AM PST on Friday and the cards reflect that. Over the next 6 weeks, you will be faced with your shadow self. This self is brought out by people appearing from your past that you have karmic ties to whether it be in this life or previous ones. Soul mates and Twin flames are very likely to make appearances. Not only am I speaking from personal experience but I think the cards say it all. The 6 of Cups is a card of someone appearing from the past but this time, it’s different. The Lovers is a card of soul mate reunions and choices that go along with it. Venus disappears and returns to the horizon later in March in the morning as Venus Lucifer, foretelling of the temptation that comes along with these meetings. Both of these cards are 6s and in the Tarot family of issues involving choices. It’s also interesting to note that It’s the 3rd month of the year and the 9th week of the year and 3, 6 and 9 are all multiples of 3. 3 is the number of the trinity, of 2 becoming 1. So obviously, the upcoming events are very important to our soul story and will teach us some of the greatest lessons about love.
Mantra: Love is light and love is darkness.

Friday 3/3/17 4 of Cups
Moon in Taurus
Moon Void of Course 7:20 AM PST
This is the 2nd Friday in a row that the 4 of Cups appeared. It seems to me that the events of the past week are once again, calling you to take a deeper look and go inward to find the answers you seek. The only exact transit for the day is Moon trine Pluto at 7:20 AM PST. This transit brings intense emotions to the surface and considering the card, these feelings will be dug up from deep down inside. Since the card of the week ins the 6 of Cups and the card of the card of the month is the Lovers, an old friend or lover from the past may reappear and shake things up a a bit. Venus also stations retrograde tomorrow, potentially bringing people from the past back into your life so this is not at all an unlikely circumstance. The good news is this transit offers the opportunity for release, so turn inward with the intention of sitting with whatever challenges your face and confronting them to make letting go easier. The Moon is void of course in Taurus for a good chunk of the day so anything involving love and relationships that comes your way today should be accepted and not forced. The number of the day is 7, a number of reassessment and reevaluation.
Mantra: If you want to change your life and the world around you, it starts on the inside.
Saturday 3/4/17 10 of Pentacles
Moon Enters Gemini 2:05 AM PST
Venus Stations Retrograde 1:08 AM PST
The 10 of Pentacles appears when you are living a life full of abundance. You have everything you need and you are provided for. Venus stations Retrograde in the sign of her lover, Mars at 1:08 AM PST and will be in retrograde until 4/15/16. During this particular Venus retrograde, old friends and lovers may appear who you need to settle your karma with. This is also a time when you may meet soul mates or twin flames but retrogrades are never good times to start anything so postpone getting closer until the retrograde period ends. Do not make any drastic changes to your looks or make any big investments. This is a time for tying up loose ends, not starting new things. It’s also a good time to pay off any debts you have. I will try to post more about Venus Retrograde and what to expect on my blog soon where I’ll touch on Venus decent and resurrection. Mercury conjunct Neptune at 3:10 AM PST is a transit that brings mystery and imagination. Someone may try to deceive you under the cloaking energy of this transit so be aware. Moon square Neptune at 10:02 PM PST is a dreamy, foggy transit. This is not a time to rely on your psychic senses. Instead, think rationally. The Moon is in the dualistic sign of Gemini for most of the day so remember the balance between light and dark makes life what it is. The number of the day is 8, a number reminding us that very soon, you will be confronted with karma that needs to be set right.
Mantra: A truly wealthy person is surrounded by love.
Sunday 3/5/17 3 of Swords
First Quarter in Gemini 3:32 AM PST
With Venus in Retrograde, people from your past will show up. You may not even realize it because this could be someone from a past life. But when these people do show up, it’s to settle some deep, karmic issues. If you meet someone during this time that you connect with, chances are, they’ve broken your heart in the past. This is also a time that can be difficult for people in established relationships and couples may even part ways for a while due to love complications. Venus is now in her evening star phase, but once she descends to the underworld and emerges as morning star, she will bring the darkness with her. Be prepared to go deep and turn off the lights. We’re just getting started. Moon sextile Venus at 12:14 AM PST will bring love, beauty and creativity to the wee hours of the morning . Moon square Mercury at 12:51 AM PST could muddle communication so refrain from having deep, light night talks. Moon square Sun at 3:32 AM PST brings challenges that come along with the first quarter. Work through them and keep pushing towards your goals. Mercury trine Saturn at 12:45 PM PST may leave you feeling frustrated. If you feel held back and you just want to snap, remember your self control. Moon sextile Uranus at 3:50 PM PST is a freedom seeking transit. Be careful not push so hard you break something important in the name of change. Moon opposition Saturn at 11:48 PM PST is a sad, depressing transit. Try to go to bed before this one hits or you may be up all night worrying. The Moon is still in the dual sign of Gemini all day, reminding us that there is two sides to every story.
Mantra: Hearts can be mended.
