The Moon sets the emotional tone as she moves through the Zodiac day-to-day. It takes approximately 28 days to traverse the entire Zodiac. Learning to work with this rhythm will help you align with and relax into an easier flow with the Universe. The luminous Moon spends approximately 2 ½ days in each sign before she moves on to the next.
The week begins with the Moon in assertive Aries as independence and assertiveness come into focus. Aries is a cardinal Fire sign that thrives on the ability to take direct, fast, individual action. Because the Moon moves quickly through the zodiac the aspects she makes result in swiftly passing moods. As she moves through Aries she has a difficult encounter with Pluto at 11:40 PM EDT on Monday night. You can work out this difficulty in your dreams but do pay attention as it may contain a powerful message
The Moon enters stable slow-moving Taurus at 6:57 AM EDT on Tuesday. Taurus is a Fixed Earth sign that takes on the task of calming and settling us after our time in Mars’ territory of Aries.
The Moon remains in Taurus until Thursday evening. When the Moon is in Taurus find a way to use your body to calm your mind. Get or give a massage, metaphorically put your hands into the soil as you plan your upcoming garden, enjoy baking or an art project. Late Tuesday night and in the wee hours of Wednesday morning the Moon encounters difficulties with Uranus and Saturn. As with Monday night, you can work these challenges out in your dreams. Once again, pay attention to messages contained in your dreams.
The Moon enters curious talkative Gemini at 7:47 PM EDT on Thursday evening. Gemini is a Mutable Air sign, bringing with it curiosity and the desire to keep ourselves engaged in simple conversations with others. Gathering information and exploring ideas are good activities when Gemini is afoot. The Moon will continue through Gemini all day Friday and Saturday. Contact friends and neighbors for lighthearted conversations.
The Moon enters comfort-seeking Cancer at 8:18 AM EDT on Sunday. Focus on family, emotional safety, and loving connections. Curl up with your loved ones, create a nest of comfort. Share foods that connect you to your ancestral past as you keep your attention on family and loving-kindness. The First Quarter Moon occurs at 10:41 AM EDT asking that you take action on the dream you developed at the New Moon last week.
ALLOW THE MIND TO IMAGINE – Monday, March 15, 2021
Today’s dynamic assertive Aries Moon is in good form as she sextiles Jupiter at 10:41 AM EDT. This offers opportunities and excitement and you feel driven to act without delay. If something positive is offered it will likely feel like a spark of magic.
At 6:26 PM EDT Mercury enters Pisces. Mercury is the planet that represents all manner of intellect from how you think to how you use your voice. Mercury has been in Aquarius since February 8th. While in Aquarius your thoughts have been innovative and unstopped by convention or the expectations of others.
The shift from Aquarius to Pisces is a big deal to Mercury. Mercury is said to be ‘in Fall’ in Pisces. Consider how thought progresses when immersed in the sensitivity of deep water. Slow down your mind and conversations, allow yourself to use intuition and images to process information. Resist the need to figure things out, to know decisively with the rational mind.
Open the softer side of thought, allow information to come from hidden places. Reach for a state of Flow.
Mercury will remain in Pisces until entering Aries on April 3, 2021.
_The Aries Moon is void-of-course from 11:40 PM EDT until she enters Taurus early Tuesday morning. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._
EMPOWERMENT OF GOALS – Tuesday, March 16, 2021
Life feels different with Mercury now in Pisces. Your inner sight and imagination are strong and your emotions are steady with the Moon in Taurus. The world feels soft, diffuse, and steady; you feel more trusting and hopeful.
At 2:25 PM EDT, the Sun still in Pisces for a few more days forms a sextile aspect to powerful transformative Pluto. It is always good to think about sextiles as opportunities. It is far too easy to not notice opportunities that come our way, so do pay attention.
The opportunity presented will be connected to the empowerment of reaching a significant goal. You may feel intense pressure to get something done that has been in the back of your mind for weeks. You may have more influence over others than you realize and you may be more influenced by others.
Pay attention to the opportunities that come with positive compulsions. You may gain an understanding of challenging issues as you explore a more psychological perspective.

IMMERSE YOURSELF IN PHYSICALITY – Wednesday, March 17, 2021
Today brings a full day with the Moon in sensual slow-moving Taurus. Focus on the experience of living immersed in your personal senses. If possible spend time outdoors, if it is warm enough go barefoot on the earth. Listen to the birds and the trees sing. Ask for and pay attention to the messages that the earth offers.
Approach today with sensual awareness. Cuddle with your cats, your partner, your children, even a stuffed animal or a soft doll will do. Listen to music, get or give a massage, cook a meal for your loved ones. Do not pressure yourself. Focus on activities that revolve around comfort and the body.
Taurus supports you to build and maintain the practical structures that support your life. When the Moon is in Taurus slow down, quiet down, and spend time in stillness.
THE PROFOUND IMPORTANCE OF COMPANIONSHIP – Thursday, March 18, 2021
As today gets underway the Moon is still in steadfast Taurus. However, an edge of intensity may pull your central focus in another direction.
At 1:19 PM EDT Venus, the planet of love and money forms a sextile aspect to Pluto. This is a great day to interact with friends and family. You are likely to experience powerful levels of affection and appreciation toward others, and them, for you. You may realize that you have developed a deep understanding of those who made little sense to you, even recently. Problems in relationships can lift as deep psychological understanding grows.
Profound love and companionship become more important and may deepen profoundly during this time.
At 7:47 PM EDT, the Moon enters Gemini and gets us talking as we move toward bedtime. Go ahead, stay up late, there is so much to talk about.
_The Taurus Moon is void-of-course from 4:40 PM EDT until she enters Gemini at 7:47 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._
STORIES AND WITTY BANTER – Friday, March 19, 2021
With the Moon in curious quick-paced Gemini, your emotional need to gather information picks up. You may go out of your way to share and listen to information, stories, perspectives, and ideas. If you feel restless it is important to engage with others in easy repartee.
The Moon in Gemini asks that all our encounters be easy, friendly, and even somewhat superficial. This is not the time to engage in powerful or deeply significant conversations. Your mind moves fast as quicksilver. You seek mental stimulation as you quickly juggle ideas, thoughts, stories, and witty repartee.
Don’t forget to listen as well as speak. During the Gemini Moon folks may speak more freely than usual leaving you surprised at what is being said and what you may learn.
ARIES SEASON, MARCH EQUINOX – Saturday, March 20, 2021
The March Equinox (5:37 AM EDT) is an important marker of time. Today the Sun enters Aries and we begin a new Astrological year. At the Equinox the rays of the sun cross the earth’s celestial equator, moving northward from our perspective.
The Northern Hemisphere begins its tilt toward the sun, bringing longer and more sun-filled days. Meanwhile, in the Southern Hemisphere, the begins its tilt away from the sun.
At the Equinox day and night are of equal length, making the duration of the day and night the same. Those long dark nights of winter make way to the coming long bright days of summer. The light and warmth of the sun grow stronger each day.
As the Sun moves through Aries (until April 19), it is time to push a new agenda forward. Look to the house that holds Aries in your chart. This is the area of your life where determination and leadership is strong and the new agenda grows. It is time to celebrate the warmth of the sun, new beginnings, and new birth.
Today’s Gemini Moon supports conversation and connections with others as you determine how to take action for what is next. I know it will be difficult but try not to be in too much of a hurry.
WILD IDEAS ARE REGULATED FOR SUCCESS – Sunday, March 21, 2021
The excitement of yesterday slows down momentarily as the Moon enters Cancer at 8:18 AM EDT and our emotions turn toward family and comfort. The First Quarter Moon occurs several hours later at 10:41 AM EDT. Consider taking an action that you can take on the dream developed at last week’s New Moon. A push forward is required.
At 10:16 AM EDT, Venus, the planet that represents our most personal values, follows the Sun into Aries and we know we are not in Kansas any longer! Courage and action are no longer content to stay in a place of dreams. I like to think of Aries as the very birth of Fire, difficult to contain and powerful in results.
Two interesting and delightful transits occur as the week comes to an end, both of which will continue their influence for several days. At 7:34 PM EDT Mercury sextile Uranus offering a sense of excitement and anticipation. Your mind is active and you want to collaborate with unique innovative people with original wild ideas. You may get news that surprises you and brings you a renewed and unexpected perspective. At 10:34 PM EDT Mars forms a flowing trine aspect to Saturn offering patience, self-control, endurance, and determination. What a great combination of energies as we move into a new week tomorrow.
_The Gemini Moon is void-of-course from 8:04 AM EDT until she enters Cancer at 8:18 AM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._
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.
The most important journey an individual can make is the quest to find the soul’s purpose and to develop the personality to serve that purpose. Once you dwell in the revelation of true purpose, knowledge becomes wisdom, and love blossoms. It is my sincere wish that my work serves as a companion along your way. – Laurie Astrolore
