STAR WISDOM of the Sidereal zodiac
Sky visible naked eye viewing of planets for March
Be up early to view this month Jupiter, Mercury and Saturn in Capricorn in the east. The Moon will pass over Jupiter, Mercury and Saturn from the 10th to the 12th.
This month is a great time to see Mercury as a morning star (27 degrees west of the Sun), Mercury is never very far from the Sun, therefore not so easy to see, even 20 degrees close to the Sun it is difficult to see due to the Sun’s glare.
Mars can still be seen with the naked eye. And on the 19th in the sidereal zodiac constellation of Taurus, you will see the new crescent Moon passing by Mars (1). Taurus has a relationship to the eustachian tubes and the larynx, (as ancients depicted the symbol of the bull, imagine the bull horns (eustachian tubes)and the triangle of the bulls forehead (larynx)) therefore speech, and the planet Mars the capacity for speech. You can view Mars in Taurus in the West a couple of hours after sunset (6).
Mercury and Jupiter. Big Ideas!
Mercury will overtake Jupiter on the 5th, as it did in January, and then retrograded in February (1). These two, Mercury – communication, exchange, curiosity, medicine and Jupiter – wisdom, expansion, have been having an intimate connection these early months of 2021. Big expansive thinking, communication, exchange, knowledge to expand world view, bigger picture, a great thirst for knowledge, significant opportunity to learn. Can see the big picture (Jupiter)and pay attention to the necessary details (Mercury). Positive communications with people and ideas that are potentially uplifting. Persuasive with infectious enthusiasm. Opportunities to break free from old patterns that diminish and establish new enhancing perspectives. It can be a time of great multitasking. Placing importance on credibility and knowledge that carries authority. Themes of integrity and traditional values. Professionalism recognition and over concern with the details “letter of the law”. Big ideas and plans.
Interesting as the COVID-19 vaccine gets rolled out, Mercury ruling medicine, the exchange of substance, Jupiter represents expansion, anything in a big way, backed with philosophy, knowledge, in Capricorn, the authority, the Establishment.
