zoe moon astrologyGabriel Blows his horn. Welcome to March 2013! The archangel Gabriel, known astrologically as Fomalhaut, one of the four watchtowers, in this case the watcher of the South, and the healing angelic energetic on high, is going to sound his position this month in an ongoing trigger that began last year at the end of February for a brief time when Neptune moved onto but not totally to the end of Gabriels degree for the first time in over 160 years before Retrograding off. The degree was then retriggered this year by the passage of Mercury and Mars over the degree on Feb 6-7 followed by the Moon bringing it into the public scope when passing over it on Feb 11.
The week ahead for Aries: You are still in Mercury Retrograde flow as March begins and this is occurring in the exact placement that your NEW MOON will arrive on the 11th. Therefore it is important to backtrack in these first 11 days over any hospital matter, institutional research or development, deal with agencies or red tape, investigate matters, connect with your muse, revisit
On the global stage we see Pope Benedict aligning with the movements of the Heavens when according to a senior communications officer at the Vatican "Pope Benedict XVI's decision to step down from his office was made soon after his trip to Mexico and Cuba in March 2012"~ (quoted from the Catholic News Agency), just days after the first trigger last year. This then led to his behind the scenes actions and decisions of Feb 6-7 and the public statement on Feb 11th to step down.
The week ahead for Taurus: Take advantage of Mercury Retrograde in the first part of March to work out any past issues or interests involving the aspirations you would like to see moving ahead but can't just yet because of things in the way, any past issues or interests involving friends, groups, the internet, astrology, charities, social networking, or events. What you tackle now in these areas, the Karmic
The following transits were the Sun with Gabriel on Feb 22nd putting the Pope physically into the mix, his presence made known as the sound is heard, followed by Venus coming to Gabriel on Feb 28-March 1st. These mark the final day of office for the Pope and the first day without a sitting Pope. What ALL OF THIS HAS BEEN LEADING TO is the first sentence above: Gabriel blows his horn. This comes on March 21-22 when Neptune, the ruler of Gabriel's sign and placement, moves to sit with Gabriel for the first time in over 160 years and the first time ever at the end of one precession and the beginning of another that lasts approximately 26,000 years. It is a momentous time. So last year, as it brought the decision into the Popes mind Neptune made it to 3.09 degrees before Retrograding and giving the grace period. Gabriel/Fomalhaut sits at 3.52 degrees which will finally be reached on March 21-22nd. Note that Neptune moves upon the 3rd degree on Feb 26, will cross the 3.9 point on March 1st/2nd and after triggering the exact degree of 3.52 on March 21/22 will move completely off of Gabriel/Fomalhaut by March 25th.
The week ahead for Gemini: Take the first part of March to tackle any loose ends regarding your career, boss, parent, goals, ambitions, reputation, fame, or achievements.

Come the 11th there is a NEW MOON in these areas and you get your best 2 week window of the year to
So, it may be that more is revealed or that our new Pope is given on these other days. It is important to note what transpires on a Global scale because it is a larger than life version of what is going on in your own life on some level. So, how does this affect you on a personal level, in your daily life? What old belief are you letting go of or who in your life held such a position that is now being abdicated? How are your beliefs evolving because of this huge and somewhat unbelievable change? Note the dates yet to come as key in the process and look back at the ones already passed to see how this aligns with a major shift in consciousness and faith for you in your life. Is there a need to stop relying so much on external authorities for your connection to the higher power and can you see a way to connect through trusting in your own divine nature and ability to lead your life forward on an enlightened path? Have you heard the sound on some level and are you being called to something higher in your life? Give it some thought as this momentous month begins.

Chiron is going to be active the 27th - 29th and he is making his presence known through the Piscean field. Chiron will wound here or help bring healing, possibly both. This means that your film, music, art, spiritual needs, clandestine romance, hospital or prison interest, addiction, research, investigation, or behind the scenes focus on something/someone will be spotlighted.
