MARS in PISCES (Nov 15 – Dec 31) – Surfing the Cosmic Waves!

14 Nov

Hi Cosmo-Terrestrial Surfers,

Sensing it?
MARS will
 (YES, it will!) leave AQ where it’s been basically forever (well, since the TAU New MOON on May 15!) due to its retro phase this Summer (which took MARS slightly back into CAP).

Loving the picture on the Voyager Tarot card Man of Cups – Surfer that I chose for MARS in PISCES.
It also contains a blossoming Horse cornucopia (so JUPITER in SAG) – symbolizing the exhilarating, ecstatic joy MARS in PISCES can engender. 


Has the Inner Masculine been re-calibrated in your Life under the Summer of MARS Retro (and the Retro Record Summer)?

Also reflected in your relationships with men in your life if you’re on the feminine side of the spectrum…?
Which kind of masculine energy shows up in your life and through you, and how has that changed since the Summer?
How are Men in Society (MARS in AQ) changing? 
Well, they are, as the Times they are a-changing, the CAP Patriarchy looses its power, and forces of Transformation sweep up the shadow and regenerate it.

MARS will enter PISCES tomorrow Nov 15 where it’ll be exactly until the last day of the year, Dec 31 – on the last degree of the Zodiac, before entering freshly into the New Year in ARIES. Nice natural alignment job, Mr. MARS!

The Piscean MARS isn’t so much into fighting, rather into chilling, relaxing, connecting, dancing, surfing, and the ‘pursuit’ of all things spiritual and transcendental including altered states – pursuit is an oxymoron here of course since it’s rather about rolling with it (PISCES is always so paradoxical, there we have it again…). It all comes together when MARS meets NEPTUNE on Dec 7.

Which Transit combos are up with MARS in PI?

Nov 15 / 16
The freshly immersed PISCES MOON meets MARS – an Initiation into Being…
Oh yeah, we’re also in the MERCURY ‘storm’ mode, going retro on Nov 16, plus VENUS turns from retro to direct, and the Nodes shift into CAP – CANCER – all on the 16th!

The PISCES MOON vibe rolls out through Saturday.

Enjoy the music, groove through the evening, chill-ax, nap as needed, swim, float, be ok with the comings and goings and impermanence of things (like water through your fingers or a beautiful piano piece…) and follow the flow of natural energy, as we’re in the heart of the ‘dark season’…
No need to ‘go by the plan’, rather be flexible and see what the World shows you!
Be gentle and caring! What really are your needs?

One thing I love about being aware of the Astro sphere is to know “it’s the weather” when I could take things personally – no need to ‘pick those vibes up’ and
identify with them – quite freeing… and being able to consciously channel the energy into what would be a good fit for it.


Nov 19
MARS freshly in PI squares JUPITER freshly in SAG!
Adventure Calling. What moves you? Be ok with the Unknown!


Nov 26
MERCURY retro in SAG – just about to meet the SUN – squares MARS in PI.
Be fluid, ‘step into liquid’ (title of a surfer movie), and ride the Heart Waves of Love…
While the Mind takes a back seat, just helps to connect the dots, and smiles at synchronicities and magic that couldn’t have humanly possibly been ‘created’.

Capricorn the Sea Goat – did you know?


Nov 27
MARS in PI sextile SATURN in CAP.
Good to get some footing again in this whole fluidity ‘spiel’ where we could also get lost…
I.o.w., chopping wood & carrying water – the ‘simple and ordinary things in life’ is where the Ground of Being can be found.


Dec 7
The central aspect of MARS in PI – its meeting with NEPTUNE.
It’s also the day before CHIRON in late PI goes from retro to direct.
This mix vibe is on in the first half of December, and calls for relax and adaptable, unattached ‘rolling with things’ – surfing what-IS can be very therapeutic.
Ha, esp. in pre-Christmas times that can paradoxically get so hectic. Brings us back into the Spirit.


Dec 13 – 15
…will be another very PISCEAN 3-day phase, with the MOON, NEPTUNE, MARS, and CHIRON in the oceanic energy field.
Just BE.


Dec 16
MARS in PI sextile PLUTO in CAP.
More ‘footing’, on a deep Soul level if you will.
Bring the flow into the core of yourself – or maybe re-discover it there.


Dec 28 / 29
Rolling out the year and the MARS in PI season as MARS connects with CHIRON.
Now we know how to go for what’s the Medicine (or perhaps to let go of other things that are in the way).


Dec 31
MARS emerges out of the Piscean Waters freshly into its ARIES domain to start the New Year with renewed energy and zest.

Lots going on in the first week of the New Year 2019, incl. a Solar Eclipse New Moon on Jan 5!

We better relax before! 😉


Your Piscean Sides (AC, SUN, MOON, Planets, Nodes)…

…get activated by MARS over the next weeks:
If they’ve been for a long time in the ‘background’ or rather passive MARS gives it a boost, to go for what you want – or rather what the Universe wants you to do and show up as.
The area of life related to the House PISCES is in your chart also gets activated to come alive.

If you have a hunch this could be YOU we could check in in a private session, for MARS awareness-in-action.



So that’s it from my side.
Ride the Cosmic Waves of Regeneration – and on-going Blessings for the Rising Phoenix!

Light & Love!

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.


Stay tuned for TREAT TIME Offers in December, for the Holidays & New Year!
It will appear as an event & offer on my FB page Astrology for Self Realization.
Check in there / get notified.
