Astrology Transits July 2024 – Friends and Family (what to expect in July 2024

The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.” — Richard Bach

July opens with the Sun in Cancer. The sign of Cancer relates to family, ancestors and your nurturing instincts. Honor and nurture your family now, whether it is your birth family or the family you have gathered close to you because they have your back and your heart.

 

Saturn began its yearly retrograde motion on June 30 at 19 degrees Pisces and will move backwards until November 17. Your projects may seem to slow down during this time giving you a chance to revise what is not working. Though progress may not be as visible during the summer, Saturn is still doing its work of grounding, structuring and solidifying. You would be wise to follow Saturn’s lead.

 

Neptune turns retrograde in Pisces. on July 3 and will remain in retrograde motion until December 9. Retrograde Neptune calls for deep reflection on the nature of realty versus the ability to dream and intuit a new, kinder reality. Use this time to tune into your subconscious and to meditate on your deepest desires. Saturn and Neptune both retrograde in the sign of Pisces are custom designed to help you dream your dreams and to then manifest them in a realistic way.

 

July promises to be an exciting month with Mars and Uranus conjunct on July 15 and Mars entering Gemini on July 20. Busy, busy, busy and lots of short trips and quick conversations are on tap with Mars in Gemini.

 

July 2-3: Mercury Enters Leo.

 

July 5: New Moon at 14 Degrees Cancer at 5:57 pm EST. Mars Sextile Saturn at 19 Degrees Taurus/Pisces. The Cancer New Moon focuses the solar and lunar energy in the sign of Cancer. Its time to re-evaluate your connection to home, ancestors and family. Mars sextile Saturn is a harmonious aspect that energizes, yet restrains. It is an excellent time to nurture (Cancer) your family, friends, garden or the wildlife around you, especially if you are feeling depressed or more emotional than usual. Your energy is high, but not combustible, as is true in some Mars’ transits.

July 10: Sun Trine Saturn at 19 Degrees Cancer/Pisces. Sun trine Saturn is one of the very best aspects for steady accomplishment. The Sun brings energy and Saturn supplies the hard work and practical “stick-to-it” attitude. Any tasks relating to water are especially favored due to the Sun and Saturn both being in water signs.

 

July 11: Venus Trine Neptune at 29 Degrees Cancer/Pisces. Venus Enters Leo. Venus Opposition Pluto at 1 Degree/Leo/Aquarius. Venus trine Neptune is dramatically different than yesterday’s energy. When Venus is Trine Neptune there is a dreamy, diffused quality and the need for accomplishment flies out the window, though Venus opposition Pluto may bring an unwelcome intensity to your personal relationships. This is a good time to let life flow and to refrain from power struggles with those close to you. Venus enters Leo at the end of the day bringing a spark of expressive and creative energy. Push your comfort zone and put yourself front and center during Venus’ transit of Leo until August 4.

 

July 14: Venus Sesiquiquadrate Saturn at 3 Degrees Leo; Saturn at 19 Degrees Pisces. The sesiquiquadrate aspect is an aspect of irritation that often indicates that choices and decisions need to be made. Ask yourself: What am I ignoring? What actions need to be taken that I have been putting off? Saturn in Pisces can bring a certain amount of confusion.

 

July 15: Sun Square Chiron at at 23 Degrees Cancer/Aries. Mercury Quincunx Saturn at 4 Degrees Leo/Pisces. Mars Conjunct Uranus at 26 Degrees Taurus. Challenging but, potentially, very freeing vibes abound now. Sun square Chiron spotlights cosmic energy custom-made to bring forth old wounds for healing. Mercury quincunx Saturn says that an adjustment needs to be made in your habitual thought patterns. Have you gotten into the habit of negative thinking?

Mars conjunct Uranus brings renewed energy to the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction that we experienced earlier this year. Mars brings the energy and Uranus brings the tension, electricity and excitement! Their combined energy can bring accidents and political unrest. The antidote to Jupiter/Uranus’ over stimulation is to slow down and practice mindfulness. Doing so, releases the positive attributes of this aspect – freeing you from ruts and outdated ways of thinking and living.

 

July 18: Sun Sextile Uranus at 26 Degrees Cancer/Taurus. The Sun is your very essence, while Uranus brings sudden change, rebellion and a desire for independence and revolution. Sun sextile Uranus adds to the vibrations of Mars conjunct Uranus discussed above, but with a more mellow, positive flavor.

 

July 20: Mars Sextile Neptune at 29 Degrees Taurus/Pisces. Mars Enters Gemini. In the early part of the day, you may feel like withdrawing from the world to meditate or to take a nature walk. When Mars enters Gemini in late afternoon you will want to socialize, talk (maybe too much) and kick ideas back and forth with another person.

 

July 21:  Full Moon at 29 Degrees Capricorn at 6:16 AM EDT. 

Sun Trine Neptune at 29 Degrees Cancer/Pisces. 

Jupiter Square Uranus at 26 Degrees Leo/Taurus. 

Venus Sextile Jupiter at 12 Degrees Leo/Gemini. 

Mars Trine Pluto at Zero Degrees Gemini/Aquarius. 

 

The Capricorn Full Moon would normally be a very grounded, uneventful time. However, this Capricorn full Moon is like a summer picnic. Sun trine Neptune adds an emotional, mysterious overlay, with maybe a raindrop (or teardrop) or two. Jupiter square Uranus brings a sense of optimism coupled with a dash of rebellion. Venus sextile Jupiter brings love and romance. Finally, Mars trine Pluto brings the drama and possibly fraught conversation (both Mars and Pluto in air signs). There is something here for everyone. Just stay grounded and enjoy what is going on around you.

July 22: Sun Enters Leo at 3:44 am EDT.  Social activities, fun, creativity and “strutting your stuff” are part of the picture when the Sun is in Leo until August 23. Take some time to give yourself an “atta girl” or “atta boy” pat on the back.

 

July 23: Sun Opposition Pluto at Zero Degrees Leo/Aquarius. Venus at 14 Degrees Leo Sesiquiquadrate Neptune at 29 Degrees Pisces. Sun opposition Pluto may lead to power struggles with others, especially authority figures. The Sun in Leo wants attention and Pluto in Aquarius doesn’t easily give you that. In addition, Venus in a harsh aspect to Neptune confuses the issue. Its best to back off from any confrontations or disgruntled feelings until this short-lived aspect sorts itself out in a few days.

 

July 25: Mercury Enters Virgo at 6:41 PM. When Mercury is in Virgo, we feel a need to interpret the world through an orderly thought process. Mercury in Virgo is good for organizing, categorizing, cleaning, and planning. This would be a good time to make business or domestic plans, to review your health and nutrition or to begin a new class or study.

 

July 31: Venus at 23 Degrees Leo Sesiquiquadrate North Node at 29 Degrees Pisces. Your perceptions about your love life and/or money matters may be a little murky right now. Decisions need to be made, but wait a few days to take action, when the right decision will be much clearer.

 

Moon Movement During July 2024: Note: Dates given are for New York City, NY. The time of the Moon’s movement into a sign will vary depending on where you live.

Astrology Transits May 2024 – Building Slowly but Surely

“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day. —A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh”

 

Last month under the strong Aries (and Mars) energy, the message was to push forward, to start new things and to be courageous and daring. Now, as the planets move into Taurus, the mood has changed. Now, the emphasis is on building, persevering and patiently building a foundation under our goals and aspirations. The message of Taurus is about attending to what we value. Letting things unfold as they will and quietly, one-step-at-a-time, moving forward

 

The lesson of Taurus can be felt in the earth, the trees, the life-giving droplets of water and the changing of the seasons. Everything is changing, yet the earth remains. Last month the earth-shaking conjunction of Jupiter/Uranus shook up the status quo. Earthquake activity increased dramatically as did our individual outlook on life. The message is to let yourself move and change while staying grounded like a tree. Such a stance will allow you to embrace the new, while remaining in your center of being.

 

April 25: Mercury Turns Stationary Direct at 16 Degrees Aries. Everything that has seemed confusing and delayed begins to move forward with more clarity when Mercury turns direct.

May 1: Venus Square Pluto at 2 Degrees Taurus/Aquarius. Venus square Pluto can bring some rather heavy energy around relationships and self-esteem. You are challenged (square) to look at yourself in relation to others. Flaws in your relationships may show themselves now. Use Pluto’s transformative power to probe beneath the surface and to find and eliminate hidden areas of strife. Puto urges us to look deeply rather than to put a temporary band aid on problematic interactions.

May 3: Mars Sextile Pluto at 2 Degrees Aries/Aquarius. Abundant energy coupled with the will and courage to take action are the hallmark of Mars sextile Pluto. Don’t push others. But do pull out all of the stops and take bold action to move full speed ahead toward your goals.

May 6: Mercury Conjunct Chiron at 21 Degrees Aries. Mercury conjunct Chiron offers excellent energy for clearing the air around past grievances. Aries gives you the courage to confront issues head-on rather than continuing to stew about them.

May 7: New Moon at 18 Degrees Taurus Sextile Saturn in Pisces. Sun Sextile Saturn in Pisces. The Sabian symbol for the Taurus New Moon is “A new continent arising out of the ocean.” This is a powerful image of new opportunities and an entirely new way of looking at the world. The Sun and Moon conjunct in Taurus will be moving over the point of the rare Jupiter/Uranus conjunction of April 20, 2024. This Taurus New Moon brings:

  • Brings stability, common sense, grounding, and a focus on security. Taurean success is achieved slowly and steadily, one step at a time,
  • Saturn brings hard work, responsibility, longevity and honoring what you have already experienced and learned, and
  • Pisces brings intuition, imagination and the ability to dream and to see beyond the five senses.

May 13: Sun Conjunct Uranus at 23 Degrees Taurus. Venus Sextile Saturn at 17 Degrees Taurus/Pisces. The Sun conjunct Uranus brings a little zip and sparkle to your everyday activities. You are ready to make changes and your mind is brimming with innovative ways to implement new habits. Venus sextile Saturn brings good judgment and the ability to stick with those changes.

May 15: Mercury enters Taurus. Mercury in Taurus until June 3rd lends a grounded, methodical and practical bent to our ideas and communication. Mercury can sometimes bring scattered thought processes, but when Mercury is in Taurus, the mind is active, focused and on-point. Use Mercury in Taurus to make strategic long-term plans that will provide the foundation for financial matters for the entire year.

May 17: Mercury square Pluto at 2 Degrees Taurus/Aquarius. Mercury square Pluto lets you see beneath the surface. You may find yourself questioning everything now, as you want to know and understand hidden motivations and why something is happening. Though this is a good aspect for probing your subconscious, the downside is that obsessive and paranoid thoughts may be foremost in your mind. Remember: You are not the center of the universe and what happens around you is not inherently directed at you.

May 18: Sun Conjunct Jupiter at 28 Degrees Taurus. Venus Conjunct Uranus at 23 Degrees Taurus. Mars Conjunction North Node at 13 Degrees Aries. The planets are active today! The Sun conjunct Jupiter is a “feel good” aspect that combines the impetus to take constructive action (Sun) with the optimism and expansive view (Jupiter) to envision and set in motion a positive life course. Mars conjunct the North Node brings you closer to your goals and purpose. The signs of Aries (action and courage) and Taurus (slow, steady, focused) combine to project the blessings and abundance of Jupiter into the future.

May 19: Sun Sextile Neptune at 29 Degrees Taurus/Pisces. Your powers of observation, both conscious and subconscious, are enhanced when the Sun is sextile Neptune. Your creativity, intuition and imagination are at a high level. You may see everything through rose-colored glasses now, so enjoy the feeling, but don’t commit to long-term contracts or agreements. Just enjoy this dreamy day.

May 20: Sun enters Gemini. Everything related to communication, writing, teaching and learning are favored when the Sun is in Gemini until June 21st. You may find yourself taking more short trips and even car shopping when the Sun is in Gemini.

May 22: Sun Trine Pluto at 2 Degrees Gemini/Aquarius. Powerful transformative energy is in force when the Sun is trine Pluto. Because both the Sun and Pluto are in air signs, your mind will be brimming over with ideas and possibilities. Set your intentions now, as it will be much easier to follow through with your plans under Pluto’s intense focus.

May 23: Full Moon at 2 Degrees 55 Minutes Sagittarius at 9:52 EST. This Sagittarius Full Moon is generally favorable for travel, study and other mind enhancing activities. Try to learn something new or plan an amazing trip under this expansive full Moon. Other aspects at this time are:

Venus Conjunct Jupiter at 29 Degrees Taurus. 

Venus Sextile Neptune at 29 Degrees Taurus/Pisces. 

Jupiter Sextile Neptune at 29 Degrees Taurus/Pisces

Venus enters Gemini.

These are excellent aspects, especially Venus conjunct Jupiter. Venus conjunct Jupiter relates to “blessings received” (Venus) with expansion (Jupiter). Venus and Jupiter sextile Neptune adds the beneficial ingredient of imagination and intuition (Neptune). Because Venus, Jupiter and Neptune are all at 29 degrees, it feels like a pause, or catching your breath, before moving into something new. Enjoy.

May 25: Venus Trine Pluto at 2 Degrees Gemini/Aquarius. Venus trine Pluto adds a certain intensity to your interactions with others. New romantic relationships undertaken now may have a fated quality to them. Wait until this transit passes before entering any long-term commitments.

May 25: Jupiter enters Gemini. Jupiter in Gemini gives a boost to your communications, short trips, teaching, learning and writing. Your interactions with others are blessed with a spirit of optimism and cooperation.

May 27: Mars Conjunct Chiron at 22 Degrees Aries. Pound a pillow if you need to when Mars is conjunct Chiron in Aries. Your frustrations may be near to the surface at this time, bringing anger, but also the possibility of healing old wounds. This would be a good time to begin a study of martial arts in order to release excess energy.

Moon Movement During May 2024: Note: Dates given are for New York City, NY. The time of the Moon’s movement into a sign will vary depending on where you live.

May 1:         Moon in Aquarius

May 2:         Moon enters Pisces

Astrology Transits April 2024 – Renewal

Rise said the moon and the new day came  Rupi Kaur, The Sun and Her Flowers

April 2024 promises to be an action-packed month due to an over-abundance of Mars/Aries energy. It is a significant planetary month with a total solar eclipse in Aries on April 8 and a rare conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus in Taurus on April 19-20. The phrase that pops into my head is “things are happening!” The Mars/Aries energy brings new beginnings, lots of action and the will and desire to move forward.

Jupiter conjunct Uranus happens every 14 years. However, Jupiter has not been conjunct Uranus in Taurus since 1941. Jupiter brings expansion, growth and opportunity, while Uranus represents sudden change, innovation and disruptions in the status quo. The sign of Taurus represents stability and being grounded and focused. Taurus rules our material resources and what we value.

We are all being called to embrace the new and to flow with the unexpected, even startling, changes, while staying focused and grounded. We have all felt had the sense that time seems to be moving faster and faster. When Uranus, the “Great Awakener” is nunder the rays of expansive Jupiter, we are only just beginning to see the extent of the changes that are coming. The arrival of “artificial intelligence” is an apt example of the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Taurus. Huge scientific breakthroughs that will change our life (Uranus) have many benefits, but too much of a good thing (Jupiter) can be problematic.

On a personal note, I have just finished my beginning astrology class and am planning a follow-up series for more advanced beginners and intermediate students. The classes will start in May and will be held twice a month each month for the foreseeable future. More information is available HERE.

 

April 1: Mercury Stationary Retrograde at 27 Degrees Aries. Mercury is retrograde in Aries until April 25, when it turns stationary direct at 16 Degrees Aries. Use this Mercury retrograde time to re-assess your goals (Aries) and your approach to implementing those goals. When Mercury turns direct, put those plans into action and solidify them next month under the Taurus rays.

April 3: Venus Conjunct Neptune at 28 Degrees Pisces. Practice universal love and compassion under this exceptionally pleasant aspect. Venus conjunct Neptune blurs the edges of reality allowing you to see only the best in those around you. Though this is a short-lived aspect, you can keep this energy flowing in your consciousness all year to improve your relationships. Artistic matters are highly favored when Venus is conjunct Neptune.

April 4: Sun Conjunct North Node at 15 Degrees Aries; Sun Opposition South Node at 15 Degrees Libra. Right in tune with the dynamic nature of the month, when the Sun is conjunct the North Node, it is time to ask yourself: “What is my life purpose? Am I taking steps to fulfill that life purpose. The Sun opposing the South Node indicates that self-reflection and the release of old patterns of identity are needed to let you express your life purpose (North Node) more fully.

April 4: Venus Enters Aries. Venus in Aries until April 29 brings a certain boldness and daring to your activities, especially those connected to love and financial matters. If you have been wanting to start a business or to ask that certain someone out, Venus in Aries gives you the impetus to make the first move.

April 6: Venus Sextile Pluto at 1 Degree Aries/Aquarius. A beneficial use of Venus sextile Pluto is to do some deep work (Pluto) around how your emotions and ideas about love, including self-love (Venus) affect your relationships. Because Venus and Pluto are in an easy sextile aspect, such work will be easier now. This is a good time to clear out emotional garbage in preparation for the New Moon Solar Eclipse.

April 8: New Moon Total Solar Eclipse at 19 Degrees 24 Minutes Aries.  The Aries New Moon total Solar Eclipse continues the Aries/Libra theme that is in force most of the month. It is significant that the Sun, Moon and North Node are conjunct Chiron. Releasing (eclipse) and healing relationship wounds (Chiron) of all kinds are a main focus of this total Solar Eclipse. Look to the house of your chart that contains Aries and/or Libra to understand the area of your life most affected. Big breakthroughs can occur for all Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) under this potent configuration. 

April 10: Mars Conjunct Saturn at 14 Degrees Pisces. Mars conjunct Saturn can be difficult energy. Mars wants to act and to act now. Saturn wants you to take things slow, work hard and take responsibility. You may be feeling restless, angry and irritable (Mars), yet feel that you are blocked, limited and unable to do anything about it (Saturn). The best way to handle this conflicting energy is to find something active to do. It might be a great day to clean out the garage or to pull weeds. Be careful while driving as road rage could result from this volatile energy.

April 11: Sun Conjunct Mercury at 22 Degrees Aries. You may find yourself taking lots of short trips and/or coming and going when the Sun is conjunct Mercury in Aries. The Sun conjunct Mercury in Aries can make you rather impatient, so count to 10 before over reacting to news and/or conversations.

April 17: Venus Conjunct North Node at 15 Degrees Aries.  Venus conjunct the North Node is prime for re-inventing yourself. The North Node is about finding your life purpose, while Venus brings blessings to help you implement the changes. Look to the North Node in your natal chart to understand the nature of those changes.

April 19: Sun Enters Taurus. 

Mercury Conjunct Venus at 18 Degrees Aries. 

Mars Sextile Jupiter at 21 Degrees Pisces/Taurus. 

Mars Sextile Uranus at 21 Degrees Pisces/Taurus. The Sun enters Taurus under pleasant aspects between Mercury and Venus in Aries and Mars sextile the Jupiter/Uranus historic conjunction in Taurus. All systems are “go,” but you need to put in effort to make things happen. Otherwise, sextiles can float on by with nothing accomplished. Be aware, that Mars in aspect to both Jupiter and Uranus can be pretty volatile. Walk away from any confrontations. You and the situation will be better for it.

April 20: Jupiter Conjunct Uranus at 21 Degrees Taurus. Sun Square Pluto at 2 Degrees Taurus/Aquarius. Venus Conjunct Chiron at 20 Degrees Aries. Jupiter conjunct Uranus is the aspect we have all been waiting for. There has been a lot of hype in the media about this configuration and it is, in fact quite a rarity. Jupiter and Uranus are conjunct approximately every 14 years. However, the last time they were conjunct in Taurus was almost 83 years ago when they came together in May 1941. We can look to events from that time period to get a flavor for the current probabilities of how this conjunction will manifest.

Jupiter expands everything it touches, while Uranus breaks the chains that keep us stuck. Look for major breakthroughs (Uranus) in environmental matters (Taurus), financial matters and our collective ideas around value. Revolutions and breakthroughs of all kinds are probable. In your personal chart look to the house and planets, if any, that are near 21 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius to see where the biggest impact on your life will occur.

The Sun square Pluto adds urgency to the Uranus/Jupiter connection. When the Sun is square Pluto, you may feel that you are being tested by outside forces over which you have no control. Venus conjunct Chiron urges you to do the necessary work to heal your hidden fears and wounds.

April 23: Full Moon at 4 Degrees 17 Minutes Scorpio. The Moon in Scorpio forms a T-square with the Sun at 4 degrees Taurus and Pluto at 2 degrees Aquarius. This Scorpio Full Moon is super intense and transformative, especially if you have planets within five degrees of the Full Moon in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius. Be nice to yourself and give yourself permission to withdraw from the world to a quiet place if possible. You are processing some pretty deep feelings right now. Such processing will be beneficial, but Scorpio/Pluto activations can be challenging.

April 25: Mercury Turns Stationary Direct at 16 Degrees Aries. See April 1 above where I discuss Mercury retrograde.

April 29: Venus Enters Taurus. Venus feels right at home in Taurus and can express herself fully here. Venus in Taurus until May 24 is conductive to financial planning and re-evaluation. Taurus relates to our values. Ask yourself: “What do I really value?” Venus is the planet of “blessings received.” Use Venus’ power of attraction to manifest what you really value.

April 29: Mars Conjunct Neptune at 28 Degrees Pisces. Mars conjunct Neptune is a rather “twitchy” aspect. It can bring feelings of irritability, inferiority, fatigue escapism and depression. This is not a good time to start things or to push yourself. Your judgment is compromised and your energy level may be lower than normal. Stay away from drugs and alcohol. Instead, reach out to the local soup kitchen or dog pound. Selflessly helping others is the best antidote for this puzzling transit.

April 30: Mars Enters Aries. Let the action begin!! Mars rules Aries and feels right at home here. Expect lots of action, lots of assertiveness and lots of short trips until Mars enters Taurus on June 9. This is superb energy for starting new ventures as long as you have made detailed plans before proceeding. Without a plan, impulsive Mars in Aries may not bring the desired results. Be careful to curb impulsiveness and impatience.

Astrology Transits March 2024 – Embrace the Mystery

 

Christian, Jew, Muslim, shaman, Zoroastrian, stone, ground, mountain, river, each has a secret way of being with the mystery, unique and not to be judged ― Rumi

The planets are giving us a break this month as shown by a number of sextiles and trines and very few squares or other challenging aspects. Sextile and trine aspects are an easy flowing energy that facilitate whatever you are trying to accomplish. The downside is that you may be tempted to ignore them. Sextiles and trines become a missed opportunity unless you put in the effort needed, Squares and oppositions challenge you, while sextiles and trines bring ease without pushing you.

The emphasis on Pisces through most of the month is subtly coaxing you to tune into the mystery of life. Honor your spirituality, intuition and creative genius during this Piscean time.

The big news this month is the March 25, 2024, Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 5 Degrees Libra at 3:00 AM EST. This Libra Lunar Eclipse can be rather challenging with transiting Venus, Jupiter and the North Node forming a Yod pattern. Yods are called the “finger of God” aspect and indicate that a certain amount of fate is present. You may feel that you are being pushed forward into a new normal.

 

March 1: Sun Sextile Jupiter at 11 Degrees Pisces/Taurus and Venus Sextile Chiron and the North Node at 17 Degrees Aquarius/Aries. This is such a good time to challenge and heal your feelings of shame or inadequacy. The Sun sextile Jupiter brings a sense of confidence and optimism. Venus sextile Chiron provides intuition and good energy around healing relationship rifts. Venus sextile the North Node favors advancing your evolutionary intent.

 

March 3: Venus Square Uranus at 19 Degrees Aquarius/Taurus. Venus square Uranus brings sudden, exciting events or encounters. You may meet a very interesting person or group, or an out-of-the-blue money-making opportunity could suddenly appear. Keep your eyes open and be willing to expend the effort needed to manifest such an opportunity.

 

March 4: Mercury Sextile Uranus at 19 Degrees Pisces/Taurus. Following up with yesterday’s startling energy, Mercury sextile Uranus points to unusual, stimulating conversations and mind opening ideas. Pay attention to “hunches” as they could contain gold.

 

March 5-6: Chiron Conjunct North Node at 17 Degrees Aries. Mars Sextile North Node and Chiron at 17 Degrees Aquarius/Aries. Mars sextile the North Node and Chiron adds a sense of urgency to act on those things that you know to be in your best interest, even if they bring up painful memories (Chiron). Mars sextile Chiron acts as a freeing catharsis to the old pain. Let yourself feel the anger, then release it and see it floating away into the ethers.

 

March 9: Sun Sextile Uranus at 19 Degrees Pisces/Taurus.  A yearning for a bit of excitement is common when the Sun is sextile Uranus. You want to make changes and are ready to implement new habits. The Sun in Pisces wants to escape from routine, while Uranus in Taurus urges you to break free no matter the consequences. Enjoy heightened intellectual breakthroughs, but be wary of impulsive actions.

 

March 9: Mercury Enters Aries. Fast thinking, fast movement and fast cars are all hallmarks of Mercury in Aries. Slow down and practice patience. You may be more accident prone now. Mercury enters its retrograde shadow period on March 18 and turns retrograde on April 2. Mercury in its retrograde shadow calms things down, but can add missed signals in conversations.

March 9: Mars Square Uranus at 19 Degrees Aquarius/Taurus. Mars square Uranus is the diciest aspect this month. Everything and everyone are jittery (Uranus) and agitated (Mars), including you. Curb your tendency to be impulsive and aggressive. Instead, use this innovative, active energy to breakthrough obstacles in an innovative (Uranus) way. This crazed energy should dissipate by March 18.

March 10: New Moon at 20 Degrees Pisces. New Moon Sextile Uranus at 20 Degrees Taurus.  What a unique New Moon! The Pisces New Moon is part of a Pisces Stellium that rolls from 11 degrees Pisces to 27 degrees Pisces. In addition, all of the planets are within 90 degrees of each other. Without a doubt, the focus is on:

  • Personal freedom with Pluto, Mars and Venus in Aquarius.
  • Spiritual new beginnings and honoring your intuitive, creative gifts (Moon, Sun and Neptune in Pisces).
  • New ideas and new way of thinking, acting and looking at the world (Mercury, North Node and Chiron in Aries), and
  • Abundance of innovative, yet grounded enthusiasm (Jupiter and Uranus).

March 11: Venus Enters Pisces. Venus in Pisces is one of my favorite combinations. Venus, the planet of love, brings a lovely overlay to the already dreamy, spiritual and compassionate vibes of Pisces. My only caution is to make sure that new friends and lovers are who they say they are and that they are worthy of your attention.

March 17: Sun Conjunct Neptune at 27 Degrees Pisces. Sun Square Moon in Gemini Early in the Day. The Sun conjunct Neptune in Pisces is spiritually strong. It is a good time to let your compassion flow. Ask: Where in my neighborhood can I spread a little bit of good cheer. It could be as simple as smiling at a stranger or as involved as working at the local charity of your choice. Be aware however, that you are much more sensitive now, so shield yourself from negative energy as much as possible. With the Sun conjunct Neptune square the Moon in Gemini it would be a good day to journal your innermost thoughts.

March 19: Sun Enters Aries. Let the action begin. The Sun in Aries until April 20 speeds everything up. It makes us feel energized, bold and courageous. It’s a great time to start a new business venture, start a new exercise program or begin anything that you didn’t feel confident undertaking before.

March 21: Sun Sextile Pluto at 1 Degree Aries/Aquarius. You can accomplish a lot when the Sun is sextile Pluto. The Sun in Aries supplies the gas to get things moving and Pluto amps up your willpower to stick with your project.

March 21: Venus Conjunct Saturn at 12 Degrees Pisces. You may be reviewing your relationships when Venus is conjunct Saturn. You are now more interested in the practical aspects of your relationships rather than the fuzzy, feel-good aspects. It’s always good to re-evaluate and repurpose, but be careful not to become too critical. This is also a good time to evaluate your financial matters. Ask yourself: Do my investments need to be shifted a little? Do I need to set up a budget and savings plan in order to reach my financial goals?

March 22: Mars Enters Pisces. Mars in Pisces is a rather peculiar energy. Mars is uncomfortable in Pisces. Mars wants action and is an assertive, even angry, energy. Pisces is subtle, indirect, peace-loving and acts in a more quiet and gentle manner. Because your physical energy may be lower than normal now, try to pace yourself rather than force speedy completion of projects. Be aware that Mars in Pisces can bring deceitful and shady people into your sphere of influence.

March 24: Venus Sextile Jupiter at 15 Degrees Pisces/Taurus. Venus sextile Jupiter is one of those aspects that we wish would stick around forever. It is peaceful, benevolent and optimistic. Relationship and financial matters are favored at this time.

March 25: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 5 Degrees Libra at 3:00 AM EST. Partnership and financial matters are illuminated under the Lunar Eclipse in Libra. Matters such as balancing household or business chores, what is “fair” (Libra) and how much should I give to maintain my relationships are some of the questions that will be asked now. Though airy Libra is not an emotional sign, this full moon lunar eclipse can stir up all kinds of emotions.

March 28: Venus Sextile Uranus at 20 Degrees Pisces/Taurus. Spring fever could set in strongly when Venus is sextile Uranus. You want adventure, new horizons and stimulating, even unconventional, friends. Venus sextile Uranus would be a good time to throw a small party or host a book club meeting. Just be aware that under the rays of Uranus anything can happen.
