Interesting word this “march” thing, when capitalized is the name of a month, when not is a soldier’s activity en masse, or even as a sign of progress – the march is on – and so forth. All trace their etymological roots back to the red planet Mars which is the planet to watch carefully these days, turning retrograde until mid May entirely within Venus’ ruling sign Libra, where Mars simply doesn’t match Her furniture.
There is a very fine line between subtlety and distraction; between absurdity and genius. Aquarius is brilliant at navigating that line, wobbling back and forth over it and even perching on it like a bird on a wire. More –>
We are now giving birth to a bouncing baby New Year. And we all know what that means.
And a lot of $#!+ to come.
In Capricorn there is labour. Work. Effort. Expenditure of energy.
This New Moon in Capricorn is all about labour: labour pains, screaming and yelling, and push, push, push!
There is also a lot of, um, fertilizer. And that stinks. But it’s essential if you are going to grow something, which is essential if you are going to build something.
And what’s the point of labour if you haven’t created or built something new by the end of it? Thankfully, Capricorn also brings the rewards that come from that labour.

The astrological version of the Sacred Dance is, of course, the twirling of the planets in their interwoven cycles across the sky. When two heavenly bodies interact in their orbits, we have the making of a combined cycle that becomes greater than the sum of its celestial parts. The most visible of these is the Sun and Moon—or “The Lights,” as they’re called by astrologers. Although both the Sun and Moon are involved, we often think of it simply as the Lunar cycle, since it is evident through the changing appearance of the Moon. The Moon’s shape changes with the amount of reflected light from the Sun that we’re able to see from Earth. As the Moon circles the Earth, we see greater or lesser amounts of that light, correlating to an increasing or decreasing amount of Lunar energy that’s consciously available to us.

It’s always way too easy to predict hurricanes and floods with climate change being what it is but 2013 sees water, water everywhere. We’ll simply need to be making the choices of whether to head for higher ground, build an ark, or much more appropriately, to symbolically ride the waves and/or go with the flow, fully within every Here-and-Tao moment we possibly can. Relax folks, it may well be a sloshy and slurpy ride but we at least survived the Mayans, no?
Not only is 2013 the Chinese year of the Water Snake but each of the three Mercury retrograde cycles will occur entirely within the only three Water signs;
Pisces, February 23 – March 17,
Cancer, June 26 – July 20, and
Scorpio, October 21 – November 10.
Plus, April 25 sees a Watery Lunar eclipse (Moon in Scorpio), and November 3 sports a Scorpio Solar eclipse, quite the Scorpionic edgy-water kind of year. And oh yeah, that’s where the old coot Saturn will be from start to finish, with a retrograde cycle of its own from mid February to early July, entirely within Scorpio. Remember, Saturn entered Scorpio in early October 2012, and (Category 1) Hurricane Sandy hit three weeks later, not to ignore the under-reported Category 5 typhoon Bopha hitting the Philippines in December, only 1,500-plus souls were lost there, making Sandy look like an April shower in comparison. Katrina was only a Category 3 …

Mercury retrograde to Dec 13.
by psychic astrologer, Phil
Okay folks, it’s finally here, the “time” to consider what the end of the world might actually look like. Imagining an apocalyptic ending is intellectually lazy because everyone would bite the dust – and become the dust – at the same time, and there would be nothing we could do about it. The much more difficult and scarier but super-courageous thing to imagine would be to contemplate the death of our physical bodies, eventually some day, and most probably not on December 21.
It takes courage and something far greater, a fuller understanding about our past-lives and the fundamental nature of time, or at least time as we currently know it. In our current 3D human condition time is linear, one second follows another, one minute hops into the next, Friday is followed by Saturday and before we know it, several decades have passed. It just doesn’t happen that way in the spirit world – our true home – where every “past” life is happening simultaneously and parallel to this one, in what we call 2012. In this light (literally), time is the prison from which we’re currently escaping, a major component of the Great Awakening.
So, November was about releasing our inner phoenix, as if we’ve been shivering fetal-style under a pile of ashes our entire lives, December 21 “just” represents another release point, perhaps all (or some) of us moving into the fourth dimension but I wouldn‘t bet the ranch on it, just stay tuned-in.

November 2012, Mercury retrograde alert
It’s not so much that Mercury turns retrograde this month (from the 6th to the 26th) but where it happens, as Mercury moves “backward” from (4°) Sagittarius and back into Scorpio on the 14th. The ancient archetype of this Sagittarius/Scorpio cusp location can be seen in two ways; as either fatalistic or liberating, and as always the choices will be ours to make (or break). The ancient/fatalistic version sees the Archer holding the Scorpion’s claws in a death grip, while aiming his arrow at the Scorpion’s heart, as if he has at least three arms and hands to do it, so it‘s therefore an allegedly eternal stalemate. The fixed stars at this location between constellations were said to be evil, as if they were somehow out to “get” we humans, or something equally stupid. What’s involved here is the faulty notion that if we let go of something it will kill us, especially if we’re over-emulating Mercury by looking backward, regressing or even refusing to evolve forward.
And this Mercury retrograde cycle is also about the deadly sin of greed, befitting Scorpio‘s modern-day ruling planet Pluto, the ruler of wealth. Scorpio’s traditional ruler Mars is also in the mix here, showing us the tenacity of that eternal struggle between good and evil, control and release, war and peace, life and death even, so the stakes could be quite high for misguided folks who can‘t let go of the past, or those who believe that greed is somehow good, while Mercury is busy scrambling their brains.
