Third Quarter Square
There’s a crisis between external exploration versus internal stillness. Sagittarius can trigger loud statements about truth, justice or belief. Or, there can be a powerful drive to experience more. But Pisces holds some secrets that are impossible to name. There’s something here that defies trumpeting declarations.
The tension between these two energies will raise questions about what’s true and how you gain new understanding. It may be time for silence and waiting - let developments come to you rather than charging forward. This is the waning part of the Moon’s cycle where things slow down and fall away. Is there a belief that needs to be released? If it’s not immediately clear what should happen next, accept that and sit with the questions this raises.
Mercury and Venus
Part of today’s Last Quarter crisis will involve relationship, financial or self-esteem issues as Venus passes over the South Node. Issues from the past will reach a culmination. Definitions and commitments around Venus themes will be key, and the South Node always suggests an ending or wrap up.
Watch for significant results that deliver real value (a reward for your work) or a reality check that shuts the door on the past. In some cases, a past or past life relationship can resurface - watch for heavy feelings of responsibility and a sense that you’ve connected before. Keeping in mind that this is happening during a Last Quarter Square, pay attention to any questions that come up. This could also be a reality check about your values and self-esteem: how are your current rules working for you?
Mercury’s trine to the North Node (and sextiles to Venus/South Node) can help you navigate the above. Mercury in Pisces is intuitive, compassionate communication. Free-flowing words and thoughts rather than hard logic. A conversation or trail of clues should be easy to follow as it leads you towards a place of nurturing, empathy and emotional satisfaction (Cancer North Node). The conversation should flow towards a place that feels right, even if you feel vulnerable. Perhaps you’re trying to progress a financial or relationship issue to the point where you feel (Cancer) safe/secure/nourished/comfortable. Pay attention to how it feels.
Don’t try to control the information - just go with it and see where it leads. If this is a relationship conversation, it should involve affectionate or loving words and a sense of peace, no matter what the conclusion.
However, note that Mercury will aspect the Nodes two more times:
Even if there’s an official conclusion or commitment today, know that the facts (and some truths) will continue to develop into April 9th. And perhaps the sense that the story is not complete is part of today’s crisis - you can’t force the answers.
