Jupiter is still retrograde in Libra, asking us to re-evaluate the "big picture" of relationships, and now he's opposing the Mars and Uranus conjuction, all on the same day of the new moon solar eclipse in confusing Pisces.

Does that sound like a lot?

It is!  

And while this energy may not feel very inspiring in a positive way, positive change is still possible if we nurture and continue to focus on developing our empathy for others, and working on our compassionate sides.  

It may sound like an oxymoron, but we have to become warriors, fighters (Mars conj. Uranus in Aries) for Peace and Justice, while re-evaluating what real peace, justice, and fairness are (Jupiter retrograde in Libra).  And somehow, we are also being asked to maintain unconditional love for all of mankind (New Moon in Pisces), while we fight against real injustices caused by mankind (Uranus square Pluto).  

Uranus is giving us some insight into the fact that our collective true "Mars" energy is a bit broken in the modern world.

Mankind is currently stuck in it's collective "root chakra"; stuck in an unnecessary and over-reactive collective "fight or flight" response.  It is time to figure out a way to balance personal power with the Venus/Libra energy of Universal Justice and tap into the collective "heart chakra".

That being said, you don't necessarily have to put on your full armor just yet.  The new moon in Pisces will reveal any fears and insecurities you may have been unable to face in the recent past, and you are now being asked to face them and overcome them.  What unrealistic dreams and expectations have you been using to hide from reality?  Now is the time to cultivate unconditional love for yourself, by figuring out where you have been dishonest with yourself, before making any important decisions or changes in your life.  

Use the time between now and May 3rd, 2017 to become more clear about what you need to do to cultivate your personal power, as well as what you need to do to cultivate unconditional love for yourself and others.  In May, you will be ready to move forward with strength and clarity, and leave confusion and insecurities behind.

Venus will be going retrograde next weekend on Saturday March 4th, and will give you a chance to re-evaluate what is REALLY important to you.  This is an opportunity to really get in touch with your personal value system, and ask yourself if you are adopting other people's value systems and questioning your own.  You are being asked to be strong and feel secure in what is important to you, and what you believe is worth fighting for.  It's always a good idea to pick your battles wisely.

Saturn is still in Sagittarius, still giving you that opportunity to build something strong, reality-based and tangible in order to provide a foundation for your dreams to manifest into something real.  Mars is approaching a favorable trine to Saturn, as is Uranus, giving us the opportunity to make changes in how we handle our personal power (as well as giving us a pop of physical energy) to help "build" whatever structures are necessary to support the big picture of our life's dream.

Use this new moon eclipse to develop more empathy for others as well as yourself.  Nurture your compassionate side so you can be a warrior for peace and love.
