We are living in profoundly challenging times. Even though it was expected, the world was been brought to a standstill by the news of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The hearts of all who love the earth and humanity call out for peace. I am reminded of the Vietnam war of my childhood. I feel the same pain in my soul and ache in my heart. It is hard to imagine how we will ever stop the greed and hunger for power that keeps us all imprisoned and in pain. We each must strike greed and hunger for power from our hearts and live as best we can with love for others each day.
HEARTBEAT OF STRUGGLE
Monday, February 28, 2022
The week begins with the Moon in the humanitarian sign of Aquarius. Even if we neglect to pay attention to world news, we feel the heartbeat of all who struggle to live in peace.
The Aquarius Moon shows its unbiased nature as it highlights the current cultural and world challenges. The Moon forms a square aspect to Uranus this morning and joins with Saturn this evening, highlighting these issues. Understand that it is our responsibility to uphold the sanctity of human life. Give with an open hand to those in great need.
Focus your attention on intellectual ideas and innovations that support practical solutions. This is a day for planning not for taking action. Take yourself and others seriously today. Be prepared to express your beliefs, knowing that your emotions do not need to run the show. Allow your intellect and wild thoughts to take the reigns. At the end of the day, you may need to trust your objectivity.
EXPRESS WHAT MAKES YOU EXTRAORDINARY
Tuesday, March 1, 2022
The Moon remains in the fixed Air sign of Aquarius for much of the day. The energy of innovation and originality sends sparks through our thoughts and conversations.
You can expect your mind to be active as it looks for information in unusual places while seeking inspiration. If you learn something that seems to disorient your thinking, wait and see before taking it to be correct or true.
At 3:54 PM EST the Moon enters Pisces bringing your emotions into deep, tender, and mystical waters. You are happy to shift your attention to a sweeter more passive state. Pay attention to your imagination, dreams, and fantasies.
A sextile aspect is formed between the Sun and Uranus shortly after midnight (eastern time). You will feel this building throughout the day. You may have a strong need to step beyond your normal routines this evening. You are looking for a unique way to express what makes you special and extraordinary.
NEW MOON IN PISCES – COMPASSION & SENSITIVITY
Wednesday, March 2, 2022
As we build to the Pisces New Moon this afternoon this is a day of deep emotions and sensitivity. Pisces is a Mutable Water Sign suggesting tender emotions that are adaptable and willing to change.
The New Moon is exact at 12:35 PM EST. Do your ritual, plant your seeds, set your intentions. This is the start of a fresh new lunar cycle. Over the coming two weeks the Moon will grow, opening your understanding of what you begin now. Between now and the Pisces Full Moon in six months that understanding will grow, develop, and flourish.
Look for the video that Jennie and I have posted on Youtube about this New Moon. Follow Astrolore on Patreon for a Patreon-exclusive pdf guide that will help you work with the lunar cycle as it relates to your natal chart.
At 11:32 AM EST Mercury conjunct Saturn (19 degrees Aquarius) brings your thinking to more serious matters. You may long to stay in the dreamland of Pisces but your mind is looking for more long-lasting satisfaction. Find a focus for your concentration and engage your most logical thought processes. If you find that your mind is stuck on a negative or pessimistic track, find an important and serious task. Your mind needs focus and a job to do.
All conjunctions can be worked with as we work with a New Moon. This is the beginning of a cycle of stabilizing your mind and securing your attention. Develop a plan, plant a seed, and watch it grow over time. The house that holds Aquarius in your chart will tell you where to plant the seed and what area of life to focus on.

VENUS & MARS DANCE WITH POWER
Thursday, March 3, 2022
The Moon is in Pisces today but the aspects from Mars and Venus to Pluto will overshadow anything looking like passivity. Focus your emotions on compassion.
Mars and Venus have been playing tag team for some time. Today is an important day in their ongoing dance as they each form a conjunction with Pluto shortly before leaving Aquarius behind.
Mars makes direct contact with Pluto at 3:43 AM EST. Venus makes direct contact with Pluto at 12:56 PM EST.
With this conjunction, Mars begins a new cycle of taking matters into one’s own hands and exercising considerable power. You may feel great restlessness that is clearly not yours alone but a reflection of forces outside of yourself. This is a good time to meet obstacles with tenacity and strength. Make sure you are not going to extremes, fighting the wrong battles, or losing sight of the impact of your actions. We hope that Venus will soften any extremes and keep us focused on our truest humanitarian values. Expect unusual intensity in all things today.
At 7:53 PM EST, the Moon enters Aries. You may feel your blood heating up and will need to find ways to let off steam over the coming few days. Just as it is time to settle down after a long day you find yourself revved up and ready for action. Go for a late evening run or engage your partner in a passionate interlude before sleep.
CHALLENGE YOURSELF, NOT OTHERS
Friday, March 4, 2022
The Moon in Aries makes no aspects today. Aries is the cardinal Fire sign ruled by Mars.
The fact that the ruling planet, Mars, joined with Pluto yesterday, should give us pause. If things feel quiet you may wonder if you are in the eye of the storm.
While the Moon passes through his quick-acting dynamic sign you may feel the need to take direct action. Please slow down and think things through. Breath deeply before taking action.
Use your body to engage in competitive activities where you are competing with yourself. Few of us can claim to be good sports or good team players when the Moon is in Aries and Mars is in contact with Pluto.
Use your excess energy in a physical manner through solitary sports, running, biking, or lifting weights. Challenge yourself but don’t challenge others.
CONFIDENCE AND OPTIMISM
Saturday, March 5, 2022
With the Moon in Aries today you are ready to do something courageous or daring for yourself. If you find yourself acting impulsively pay more careful attention to issues of safety.
At 9:06 AM EST the Sun conjuncts Jupiter. This begins a one-year cycle of enthusiasm and expansion. Look to the house that holds Pisces in your chart to consider where the growth suggested will begin in your life. For a positive outcome take an action that will expand that area of your life.
This is a wonderful time to engage in wide-ranging philosophical discussions with growth and improvement as the goal. Self-confidence and optimism are activated today.
You can expect a general feeling of well-being and a belief that luck is on your side. You are also more likely to be generous and complimentary with others. The downside of this transit may be over-extravagance, over-optimism, or wastefulness.
ACTION – MOTIVES – DESIRE
Sunday, March 6, 2022
While you slept early this morning there was a great deal of activity in the cosmos. At 3 AM EST, the Moon entered Taurus. This will calm our nervous system for the next few days.
Mars and Venus, hand in hand entered Aquarius in the very early hours of the morning as well. As they entered Aquarius they conjuncted, reflecting high emotions, desires, and assertiveness. You are ready to take action to fulfill those desires. Pay attention to your motives and what you are willing to do to get what you desire.
Venus remains in Aquarius until April 5th. During this time you will be drawn to more unusual and intellectually based values, desires, and relationships. Personal space and independence are standards and beliefs you are willing to go to bat for. Creativity is stimulated by an objective understanding of humanitarian values.
Mars will remain in Aquarius until April 14th. You can expect to be driven by impersonal desires and seek unconventional methods to fulfill them. You will be more likely to take action on issues that move you from a humanitarian and intellectual perspective.
Venus and Mars have been traveling hand in hand since early February. This is not a common occurrence. After this conjunction, Venus will pull ahead of Mars not overtaking them again until February 2024.
In these weekly reports, I explore the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and give rise to fleeting moods. The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions. The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
