Mars in Capricorn and The Sun Enters Pisces

“What I saw among the Amish was the amazing amount of energy available to people who get pleasure from what they are doing and find meaning in the work itself.” Sue Bender

“The guy at the gas pumps
He’s got a lot of soul
He sings Merry Christmas for you
Just like Nat King Cole
And he makes up his own tune
Right on the spot
About whitewalls and windshields
And this job he’s got.” Joni Mitchell

The Sun enters the sign of Pisces Tuesday February 17th , joining the retrograde Mercury and Neptune, the planet of dreams and visions.

Mars the planet of energy, drive and ambition is in the sign of Capricorn now. This is the sign of the persevering mountain goat who – despite obstacles and set backs – climbs¬† to the top of the mountain with determination.¬† It’s a good time for work on projects that is already in process and for returning to work that has been started previously. Mercury retrogrades bode well for tying up loose ends. If it’s possible to put off new projects until March 10 or 11th, when Mercury is once again direct, it’s best to do so.

The asteroid Juno is also retrograde now making it a good time to review your commitments.

Having extra patience during retrograde periods can be very helpful.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A petrified forest, an eternal record of a life lived long ago.”

Sabian symbol from Lynda Hill
