Mid March 2020: No Fire, No Air, total negativity

NegativeThis week, that started on March 16 2020, we get just over 32 hours of total negativity.  This means there are no traditional planets in the positive signs of Fire and Air.  In fact, the discovered planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, are are also in negative signs.

In case you don’t know, in astrology the Fire signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittiarus are treated as positive, as are the Air signs of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.  The six Earth and Water signs are negative.

We can see this as a gigantic binary combination lock, one dial for each of the ten planets, where 1 is positive, and 0 is negative.

On the morning of  Monday March 16 the dial looks like this:

Sun in Pisces, Negative

Moon in Sagittarius, Positive

Mercury in Aquarius, Positive

Venus in Taurus, Negative

Mars in Capricorn, Negative

Jupiter in Capricorn, Negative

Saturn in Capricorn, Negative

Uranus in Taurus, Negative

Neptune in Pisces, Negative

Pluto in Capricorn, Negative

This means that the cogs of interest are Mercury, the Sun and the Moon.

In terms of the Sun and Mercury, the broad window of negativity is between Monday March 16 at 7.42 am GMT, when Mercury moved into Pisces, and Friday March 20 at 3.50 am GMT, when the Sun moves into Aries.

We then have to consider the Moon.  It went into Capricorn on Monday March 16 at 4.25 pm GMT, and leaves Capricorn on Wednesday 19 at 1.16 am.  So that’s your window.  New York time, that is between 12.26 pm on Monday and 9.16 pm on Tuesday.  By the time it moves into another negative sign, the Sun will be in Aries, and the moment will be gone.

What does it mean?  It is a time of total negativity, total Yin.  It is a time to absorb the universe, to let the universe imprint its message on you.  Don’t feel that you have to create, or be positive.  Instead you need to observe, and listen to your thoughts and dreams.  And don’t miss it – Saturn is about to move into Aquarius, a positive sign, and you’ll have to wait for years, even decades, for another moment of such negativity.

While I have got your attention, I am considering offering a free online astrology course.  Now might be a good time to offer a free course – coronavirus means that people have more free time, but also less money.  I have been practicing astrology since 1987, and am familiar with most areas of astrology.  If you are interested, and you are prepared to commit to something like a five-week course, please email me at consultarchie at gmail.com, or comment on this post.  Tell me what kind of things you want to learn about.  For example, do you want a beginners’ course?
