The big astrological event of the week and month starts on 5 March and lasts till 28 March: the Mercury retrograde in Pisces. CLICK HERE for a look at how to deal with this season. Retrogrades bring out the shadow aspect(s) of the zodiac sign(s) they occur in. The Piscean shadow includes delusions, lies, gossip, drama, flakiness, a victim/escapist mentality, mental illness, and emotional manipulation.
No big deal. Remember: the truth is your friend! Stick with it – you’ll be just fine.
Let’s get to the reading!
LEFT: SIX OF WANDS REVERSED.The Six of Wands is the card of victory after a hard fight. When this card appears in the reversed position, you are encouraged to maintain your inner equilibrium in the situation you’re facing, and not to take things at face value. Be neither too discouraged nor too presumptuous; refrain from indulging either in insecurity or in over-confidence. Your victory is not yet certain, but neither is it a lost cause… yet. The next card holds the key to obtaining that successful outcome your heart desires.
MIDDLE: THE FOOL REVERSED.When The Fool turns upside-down, you may have big dreams of a successful venture. But be careful – something’s not quite right with the planning, and/or some mistake has been made that could scupper the execution of your plans. The reversed Fool advises you to review your ideas, strategies, and possibly even timing, before you commit to a plan.
This is also a card that warns against excessive hesitation, or the tendency to rush into making a decision that seems appealing but is really a disaster waiting to happen.
RIGHT: KNIGHT OF PENTACLES.How, then, do we ensure that we stay on track to our desired outcomes? This card reveals a strategy that will work in your favour, especially when the Mercury retrograde in Pisces threatens to turn brains into mush and life plans into unnecessary dramas.
When the Knight of Pentacles appears, Take. Your. Time.
Set an attainable goal, then pace yourself wisely. Be organised, structured, and disciplined; keep to your word, and be someone others can trust. This is not a time to be a maverick – it pays to stick to conventional methods, and also to respect those in authority.
Someone who manifests these qualities could play a role in this week’s events. If so, they are likely to be a helpful presence in your life. If this Knight doesn’t appear, then it’s possibly up to you to be the Knight of Pentacles in your own life, and perhaps you’ll be the helpful presence to someone else in need.
GODDESS GUAN YIN DIVINATION
LOT NUMBER: 40
The sun sets, and the moon rises;
Yin grows strong, as yang gives way.
Should a woman seek her fortune,
Her blessing abounds in every way.
(Trans. Tan Kelly)
The traditional explanation for this lot states: “Good fortune will go to the woman and not the man, because yin (feminine) energies are strong. Misfortune and adversities must first be overcome before the situation can progress smoothly, and with blessing.” I would add that this blessing is likely to be unexpected, in the same way that a woman succeeding in traditional, patriarchal Chinese civilisation would come as a surprise to many.
In other words, if you were hoping for a swift and straightforward resolution to your issue, it might not happen in the way you hoped (the Mercury retrograde could also play a role in this). However, your resilience and perseverance will become the deciding factor in the final outcome of this situation. The fact that blessing goes to the feminine element rather than the masculine indicates that you’re more likely to win if you take the softer approach of consensus, collaboration, and compromise, instead of playing a tough game and imposing your will on others.
Review your situation: is it possible to implement a win-win solution, and how? Your approach doesn’t have to be perfect, but your sincerity, gentle spirit, and quiet inner strength can go a long way.
Have a great week ahead!
