Pisces Season

 Pisces Season officially began three days ago. And on March 2, we have a the New Moon at 12* Pisces that conjoins a combust Jupiter. So Jupiter is unable to deliver it's best results. But on March 5, Jupiter is cazimi, i.e. in the heart of the Sun (6:06 am, PST) and in a most auspicious position. "A planet conjoined with the Sun is like a person sitting with the king in one chair." (Abraham Ibn-Ezra) And our faith in a kind and compassionate cosmos is restored, and renewed.

Mendocino Complex Fire

Corresponding to the day of the total lunar eclipse (longest of the century) that conjoined Mars at perigee (closest to the earth)- the Mendocino Complex Fire has been burning since July 27, growing into the largest blaze in California modern history.

California Wildfires

California wildfire declared largest in state's history 

My preferred chart for the state of California is receiving major transits from Mars Rx, which is also OOB (out of bounds) by declination- and tending to extremes. Along with the transits from Uranus (sudden, and radical) to the CA's Midheaven (public status), and Pluto (extreme, and destructive) to CA's Progressed Venus (L1), and Progressed Midheaven.

I must conclude that the unusually hot and dry weather around the world is related to Mars Rx and OOB. And it's (Mars) conjunction with the Moon's Nodes, and square with Uranus, are exacerbating the Mars effect- resulting in a highly combustible combination. While Mercury Rx in the fire sign of Leo is adding to the mix- since Mercury signifies the winds.

Transiting Mars is crossing back and forth over the most fire-sensitive point in the chart for California- the IC/4th house cusp. In mundane astrology, the IC and planets in the 4th house pertain to the local weather, and geophysical events, such as fires, earthquakes, etc.

Moreover, the July 27 total lunar eclipse and Mars were in their most crucial position here on the US West Coast- conjunct the IC/4th house cusp.

Jupiter stationary-direct

Benefic Jupiter has been retrograde since March 10, 2018, but will finally station-direct on July 10, 2018- and perfect it's final trine with Neptune on August 19, 2018.

A transiting planet turning direct is an improvement regarding that planets significations. And Jupiter's associated with hope, faith, enthusiasm- growth, expansion, and opportunities.

Even with Mars, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto retrograde- and three upcoming eclipses- a hopeful and positive attitude can inform future outcomes in ways that are hard to quantify.
