Astrology Forecast Feb 26 - March 4th 2017
Feb 26 2017    Mars    Cnj    Uranus   
22°Ar00' D   
Individual commitment and decision. Revolutionary ideas. Iron will. Accelerated activity. Technical creativity. Problem solving -- engineering. The desire to make things happen, to force changes. Dynamic leadership. Focused individuality.

The last two times Mars conjoined Uranus was on March 22, 2013 and March 11, 2015.  This conjunction today ends the last two year Mars/Uranus cycle and begins a new one. 

Mars represents fighting, war, young men, sports, actions while Uranus is the outer planet of unexpected, sudden events with advanced technology, and can be explosive.  Terrorism by Islamic extremists has dramatically risen since the last Mars/Uranus cycle.  This next cycle may see more of the same.  

However, the new cycle indicates a change in how these explosive events may occur and by whom.  Being a combination of acting unexpectedly, people may make rash decisions and unplanned actions during this time.

Feb 27 2017    Mars    Opp    Jupiter  
22°Ar25' D    22°Li25' R

A fighting spirit for a moral or ethical cause. Overexcitement. Overconfidence. Lack of moderation. Inclinations to hasty actions and opinions. Competitive reactions. Muscular action. Clash of philosophy or principles. Lawsuits.

This is a time of changes which may result in people suing and arguing over differences in principles, beliefs, and philosophies.  People may act in an over-the-top way.

Sporting events, lawsuits, elections, and any other type of competition or battle may heat up at this time.  Clashes over entertainment, gambling, stock markets, groups, children, goals and what is good for everyone rather than the few may be most prominent.

This is a time of confusion and deception with and by leaders.  Things may take on an idealistic or unreal view.  This may also potentially cause extreme sensitivity and hysteria.  This is not a good time for making decisions.
This is a good time to go into seclusion and think things over for a while. Even sleeping on a current problem may lead to some good decisions.
Volunteer work and helping the less fortunate would be a positive manifestation of this aspect.  Also, performing some art or spiritual endeavor.  Water/liquid/chemical related activities may also be fortuitous.

Mar 2 2017    Jupiter    Opp    Uranus   
22°Li11' R    22°Ar11' D

This transit can indicate a sudden and dramatic change in your life ranging from simply a break in your routine to a breakdown in a relationship, career or way of life. On the one hand you feel a strong urge for a change of scenery, but on the other hand you feel rattled at the thought of breaking new territory. In some cases you may feel that there are obstacles, in the form of responsibilities to other people, which are holding you back.  Either way it is time to ponder on your life and use this time to free yourself of restrictions. You will be grateful for the new-found freedom in the end.

Jupiter is is began it's first of three oppositions to Uranus on December 26, 2016. This is the second opposition on March 2, 2017  and the last opposition will be on Sept 28, 2017.  Related or similar events may occur on these dates.

 Jupiter represents one's belief systems, higher knowledge and good luck.  Uranus is the outer planet of disruption, invention and surprise. There may be confrontations/oppositions between groups who do not share the same ideologies.  There may also be a technological (Uranus) way that some spread their religion or beliefs (Jupiter).  There has already been talk of fake news stories which is just the tip of the iceberg as far as manipulation of the internet to foster certain ways of making it appear that people believe.  This was shown clearly with television news shows and the U.S. election.  This area will be addressed in the coming year and it may reveal some shocking surprises which may change your views on certain topics.

Mar 4 2017    Venus stations    Retrograde      
13°Ar08' R    
The last time Venus stationed retrograde was on July 25, 2015.  Leslie and I made a podcast discussing the implications of Venus retrograde here.

Venus stations retrograde or stops to appear to move backwards on March 4th 2017 and will continue to move backwards before stopping again on April 15, 2017 and begin to move forward.
Venus stations at 13 degrees of Aries which is conjunct the auspicious fixed star Alpheratz.  According to Ptolemy this fixed star is of the nature of Jupiter and Venus. It bestows pleasure, good health and good luck in speculation.  

Alpha (α) Andromeda, Alpheratz, is a double star, magnitudes, 2.2 and 11, white and purplish on the Chained Woman's head.

Alpheratz, Alpherat, and Sirrah derive from the Arabians' Al Surrat al Faras, "the Horse's Navel", as this star formerly was associated with Pegasus, whence it was transferred to the Woman's hair (the top of Andromeda's head); and someone has strangely called it Umbilicus Andromedae (this star is positioned on the Pegasus's navel, i.e., Latin umbilicus, and also on the top of Andromeda's head). But in all late Arabian astronomy taken from the second-century Greek astronomer Ptolemy it was interpreted as Al Ras al Mar'ah al Musalsalah, "the Head of the Woman in Chains."

Legend: Andromeda, the original "maiden in distress" is daughter of Cepheus, king of Ethiopeia, and his wife Cassiopeia. Cassiopeia was proud of her daughter's beauty and boasted that Andromeda was more beautiful than the Sea Nymphs, the Nereids, who were daughters of Poseidon (Neptune). The Nereids complained to Poseidon who sent a sea monster (Cetus) to ravage the coast. With his kingdom in grave danger, Cepheus consulted the oracle of Ammon in Libya for advice. He learned the only way to save his kingdom was to sacrifice his daughter, Andromeda, to the sea monster. Andromeda is chained to a rock and left to the mercy of the monster. The hero, Perseus, riding through the air on winged sandals, arrives at the scene and they fall in love. Perseus had a quick consultation with Cepheus and Cassiopeia, it is agreed that if he rescues their daughter he could marry her. The sea monster (Cetus) arrives and Perseus kills it by turning it to stone with the Medusa's Head (Algol). Perseus breaks the chains that bound Andromeda to the rock and frees her. The wedding follows.

According to Ptolemy the influence of this constellation is similar to that of Venus, though the legend would lead one to suppose some connection with Virgo. It is said to bestow purity of thought, virtue, honor and dignity upon its natives, but to cause battle with chimerical (wildly fanciful, highly improbable) fears and a tendency to become easily discouraged. It gives love between husband and wife and reconciles adulterers.[]

At this time there may be some stalling or delays in romantic, materialistic, or money matters.  There may be some significant events surrounding women, children, luxury items, financial matters and in relationships.   There may also be delays in processing money and/or business transactions. 

On a positive note, this is the time to go back and redo, return, or re-evaluate old relationships or things that may have been previously discarded.  It is possible that during this Venus retrograde period some people may take back an old love or pine away for a lost romance.  Some may reunite with someone or something from the past.  Money or personal belongings may be returned during Venus's retrograde (March thru April).  Some may go back and restart working or utilizing a talent they have.

Mar 4 2017    Mercury    Cnj    Neptune  
11°Pi47' D    11°Pi47' D

The use of imagination. Accurate intuitive thinking. Appreciation of subtleties. Artistic appreciation. Vision.

Illusion, delusion, confusion and working in seclusion are emphasized at this time.  This is a positive time for creative thinking and imagination.  This is not the best time to work out facts and figures as details may get muddled due to some missing or confusing data.

This is auspicious for researching the ocean, spirituality, or other Neptune-related endeavor.    New information may come out around this time which may cause more confusion, conspiracies and/or depression/melancholy.

Don't take alleged facts at face value as propaganda and subliminal influences may be at work with advertising or other political campaigns.  This time is rife with misinformation and misleading ideas.

However this is a wonderful time to create or enjoy poetry, fiction, art, music, psychic phenomena, or spending time by the water.  Helping the less fortunate and even spending some time alone may be most productive and satisfying now.
