“And then there are days of being lost in the woods, not knowing the fate, but just being a wanderer. That’s life.” Anonymous
When you really think about it, being lost, in itself, isn’t something that’s necessarily good or bad. It’s when you’re lost, and you know that you’re lost – that’s when life can get way more complicated! And, fast! Because in the latter scenario, instead of simply enjoying being clueless, being a so-called wanderer, being lost in space, or in the woods, whatever, you’re now spending nearly all your dang time and energy trying to figure out where the heck you are! And, how to get back! 🙂
So it’s round two of the Mercury (thoughts, reasoning, ideas) Neptune (idealism, fantasy, deception) meetup today. First time they hooked up was on February 19 at the time of the Virgo Full Moon. Now we have Mercury in its retrograde phrase, at this second meetup. April 2nd will be when Mercury and Neptune have their final warm embrace, with Mercury stationing direct on March 28, and still at 16 degrees of Pisces. The same degree where it is now, and will remain, until April 1st, or April Fool’s Day. Which should, right away, raise another big red flag! 🙂
So, essentially, we have mental Mercury conjunct blank screen Neptune in fishy Pisces for really the next several days. During this time, some of us may be lost, literally and or symbolically, and not know it. Others of us may know that we’re lost, but don’t yet know how to get unlost or found. (For astrology newbies, Mercury conjunct Neptune, on the shadow side, is associated with confusion, misinformation, things being up in the air, scandals, cover-ups, innuendos.) To top it off, we have the newly-released Mueller report supposedly getting ready to float around the halls of Capitol Hill. Ad nauseum, no doubt. Probably for decades!
Plus, here’s a fact that nobody in the media is reporting: Russia’s Vladimir Putin (b. 10/7/52) also has, in his own natal horoscope, Mercury conjunct Neptune (in of the sign Libra)! And, it’s a close, two-degree conjunction! Yet, President Trump still insists “there’s been absolutely no Russian collusion…” Hey, buddy, we all know otherwise. All we have to do is look up in the frickin’ sky! Mercury and Neptune are colluding! Right this very minute. Boy oh boy… the guy must be blind or something. Plus Putin’s own natal horoscope confirms what we’re seeing and shows his own planetary involvement in the situation! Gee wiz! It’s a late March slam dunk, if you ask me! 🙂
Then there’s poor Robert Mueller (b. 8/7/44). He also has the transiting Mercury-Neptune conjunction today exactly opposite his natal Mars and Chiron conjunction at 16 degrees of Virgo. So, he’s, no doubt, also in a foggy state (and will be for a while), and probably feels that a lot of the work (Virgo) that he’s been putting into the investigation, over the last two years, will probably end up being either misunderstood or misrepresented. A lot of the time, Mars-Neptune aspects can be not only ego-denying, but also exhaustive – mentally, emotionally, and physically. He’s probably so happy to finally be able kick this baby to the curb!
Famous March 24 Birthdays: Dorothy Height, Steve McQueen, Peyton Manning, Harry Houdini
“All you need to do is organize your butterflies.” Dorothy Height.
Born in Virginia in 1912, Dorothy Height was a leader in addressing the rights of both women and African Americans as the president of the National Council of Negro Women. In the 1990s, she drew young people into her cause in the war against drugs, illiteracy and unemployment. The numerous honors bestowed upon her include the Presidential Medal of Freedom (1994) and the Congressional Gold Medal (2004). She died on April 20, 2010, in Washington, D.C. (biography.com)
In Height’s horoscope, among other things, she had Venus (women) in empathetic Pisces (the sign ruling civil rights) in a tight conjunction with wounded healer Chiron. Intellectual Mercury was also in trailblazing Aries and exactly square to idealistic Neptune in Cancer, no doubt, supplying her with plenty of vision and imagination in reaching for her goals. Her Mercury was also sextile to Mars and Pluto, which were tightly conjunct in information-minded, communicative Gemini (Height was also an administrator, educator, and author). People with Mars and Pluto conjunct tend to be strong transformational figures and with this conjunction occurring in articulate Gemini she would likely be very persuasive in her speech and communication of her ideas.
Anyway, hope you enjoy your Sunday!…Remember, too,… if you’re feeling a little lost, all you need to do is take three steps forward. Then two steps back. Then take another four steps forward. Or, you may want to try, just going backwards with all your steps, since Mercury is in retrograde motion. It’s really all up to you. Whatever you decide. I can only advise you, at this point, as your lowly, humble, clueless astrologer.
