On Tuesday, March 1, 2022, Mardi Gras is back, everyone! After being canceled in 2021 due to Covid-19, the annual party and festivities are once again adorning the streets of New Orleans. Even if you can’t enjoy the fun in person, Mardi Gras can be wherever you are. You just have to have the spirit of joy and the carnival-going spirit in your heart. Since so many will be out and about enjoying the festivities, here is an overview of the astrological energies for Mardi Gras.
Fat Tuesday is Back in Effect!!!
Mardi Gras, also known as Fat Tuesday is back once again. This is a special day because it is the last official day of the Carnival season before the beginning of Lent which is is on Ash Wednesday. Since Lent is associated with fasting, Mardi Gras is that one last day of indulgence which is why it can be such an over-the-top event. Just imagine that you are planning on dieting at the beginning of the month.Read More »
Now that you know the reason for Mardi Gras. Let’s take a look at the astrological energies for this festive day!
The Solar Vibe of the Day: Sun in Pisces
Mardi Gras is graced with the energy of the Sun in Pisces with the moon in Aquarius in 2022. Mardi Gras always occurs during Pisces season which makes a lot of sense. The Neptunian vibe of being able to be someone else for a moment in time is definitely played up at this time. There will be lots of people dressed up as someone else or as someone that they would like to be.
Make-believe and fantasy are at their heights during Mardi Gras, and this is definitely supported by the Sun in Pisces energy. What is Mardi Gras without some libations? Have you ever heard of the saying, “He/she drinks like a fish?” Well, Neptune/Pisces energy also rules the use of perception-altering substances such as alcohol and drugs.
Fat Tuesday is known for the swarms of people in the streets, on balconies, and in the bars partaking in a variety of spirituous drinks.
Sun in Pisces says enjoy yourself! Let loose. Let the boundaries fall away, and be whoever and whatever you want. Depending on how hard you plan to party, you may want to take Wednesday off to recoup!
A Quirky Mood with Moon in Aquarius
The moon in Aquarius provides a quirky, free-spirited vibe to Mardi Gras 2022. Aquarius enjoys good company and being amongst among the masses which is perfect for enjoying the Fat Tuesday festivities. This is the perfect energy to enjoy the company of good friends and to even hit the streets and feel like you are actually part of humanity again…especially after all the isolation due to the Covid-19.
What’s even better is that Aquarius is not an overly emotional sign which helps when you just want to have a good time! The moon in Aquarius will have people keeping things light, easy, and breezy. The vibe is everyone is getting along for the greater good of everyone. Pretty good feeling vibes for Mardi Gras!
Now, this Aquarius moon is not in a good position for starting new things as it is voided. A void moon of course is one that is preparing to move into a new sign and doesn’t make any major aspects to other planets before moving into a new sign. The moon will move into the sign of Pisces on March 2, 2022, the day after Mardi Gras.
So, if you’ve got plans, hold off until March 2, 2022, when the moon moves into the Pisces with supportive new moon energy. For now, just enjoy the good company and camaraderie that Fat Tuesday offers.
Suprise, Surprise Energy…In a Good Way
The theme of Aquarius/Uranus energy continues as the Sun in Pisces forms a pleasant working sextile aspect with Uranus in Taurus. This is Uranus energy working in a good way, so expect some pleasant surprises that work to your advantage for Mardi Gras.
The combination of Sun in Pisces with Uranus in Taurus speaks of making unexpected changes and surprises that are grounded in reality due to the influence of earthy Taurus energy. This is great energy for sparking the imagination, perception, and creativity of Pisces. If you are an artist or musician, you could be pleasantly surprised at what comes to your consciousness at this time.
For everyone else, perhaps you will feel unexpectedly inspired to make that Mardi Gras costume a reality! Sun in Pisces playing nicely with Uranus in Taurus offers the grounded visionary influence to help make those Neptunian dreams and imagination a reality. You’ll have to put in a little effort due to the sextile aspect, but it is well worth the effort.
Mask Up & Enjoy the Festivities
The overall energy of Mardi Gras is about imaginative revelry and enjoying the company of others. Whether you happen to be in New Orleans for Fat Tuesday or at some other locale, the festive energy is available for all to enjoy! The astrological energies encourage enjoying the company of others in a friendly manner…and even if you have to mask up to do so, at least you can do so with some flair!
Get your feathered mask. Grab some beads, and don’t forget the delicious King cake! Happy Mardi Gras, everyone!
