As we come closer each day to the grand cross next month our days become more and more intense.
You have heard me talking about the Square Aspect between Uranus and Pluto which has been reflecting insistence on change in every sector of our world since the Summer of 2012.
April 20th – 23rd finds Mars and Jupiter joining with Uranus and Pluto to form a Full Grand Cross.
• Two Oppositions: Pluto Oppose Jupiter, Uranus Oppose Mars;
• Four Squares: Uranus Square Pluto, Jupiter Square Uranus, Mars Square Jupiter, Mars Square Pluto.
We; as individuals, as cultures, as humanity are facing immense tension, an immense amount of pressure to Change.
Anyone who has Personal Planets between 10 and 16degrees of any Cardinal Sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn) is in a tight grip of intensity and pressure. Intense change is upon us!
Please do yourself, your family, your loved ones, and the entire human race a favor by opening to the changes that are offered. Do not try to hide from change or stop its progress. This pressure will have its way. Do not allow fear to hold sway. Beneath the fear is intense richness and depth. Think of the freedom and excitement that is offered!
Consider the innovations that are happening in our world. Moving toward excitement and away from fear is essential. It may not be easy, but look for the shining light of expansion, freedom, innovation, and growth for each of us individually and for the entire human race.
All we have to do is listen to the news to increase our fear and anxiety. Take a moment to research what is happening in the world of social innovations. Look at the changes that are happening that are amazingly powerful and wonderful. There is much exciting innovative and powerful change happening in the world that you may not be aware of!
Now onto this week as we build toward the shifting point!

Monday, March 24, 2014:

We begin the week with the Moon in Capricorn. This is likely to be a busy day as the Moon is highlighting the coming Grand Cross. She (the Moon) interacts with Jupiter early in the day and in the afternoon she confronts the Square between Uranus and Pluto. This is a day we will be powerfully aware of the need for change, we will feel the intensity that is building.
This is a good day to focus on whatever work is important to you. If you are struggling with your emotions, you must consider if you doing work that feeds your soul. If you are focused on work that is ‘yours to do in the world’ you will feel the satisfaction of accomplishment by the end of the day. Any interactions you have with others offers an opportunity to help move all of humanity in the direction of love and kindness. Everyone is feeling the pressure and stress. Every kindness you show to others will radiate out into the world and have more of an impact than you would expect. Show kindness to each and everyone you encounter!

Tuesday, March 25, 2014:

Tuesday morning will still hold the intensity and stress of Monday. At 8:35 AM EDT the Capricorn Moon makes her final Aspect; a Square to Mars. It is important that you maintain an awareness of your level of aggravation or anger throughout the day. Don’t forget your morning meditation. 
The Moon is VOC* following her Square to Mars until she enters Aquarius at 6:39 PM EDT. This brings in an ability to bring a healthy detachment from the emotional heaviness of the past few days. Take advantage of the quirkiness of Aquarius to expand your sense of humor, which will be a useful tool over the coming weeks. Tuesday evening will be a great time to engage with others with joy and good humor; bring your most unusual and innovative ideas to the table. We are moving rapidly into the future. Pay attention to the company/community that you engage with this evening. Be clear that this where your precious human energy is best utilized. 

Wednesday, March 26, 2014:

Wednesday will bring some ease from the earlier intensity of the week. The Aquarius Moon makes a lovely Sextile to the Aries Sun as these Two Main Energies interact with positive hope and vision of future opportunities. This is a day to contemplate the future. How do you see yourself as a part of that future? How does your movement forward encourage the direction you want for all humanity? How can your contribution expand hope and wisdom for all of humanity? 
At 9:10 AM EDT Mercury makes a lovely Trine to Jupiter encouraging our ideas to flow freely to the support of others. Mercury has recently left Neptune behind picking up a great deal of sensitivity and spirit. Today Mercury asks that we teach others from the the wisdom of our heart. With Jupiter in Cancer our emotions are expansive and full as we bring the teaching of wisdom to those who are waiting to learn.
Bring your thoughts back in time to the spring of 2013, the end of May. Do you remember was on your mind at that time? What you were thinking about at that time has expanded into wisdom that you are now ready to share with others. 

Thursday, March 27, 2014:

Thursday will proceed with a VOC* Moon following Moon Trine Mars at 9:12 AM EDT. This final aspect bring a workable, assertive flow of energy to the day. This is not one of those VOC* times to simply lay around and contemplate. There is the ability to work and get a lot accomplished. It is not a day to begin anything that you want results from, not the time to begin or work on an important project. However it is a great day to accomplish mundane activities and necessary chores. The Aquarius Moon remains VOC* until entering Pisces at 8:11 PM EDT. Following the Moon’s entrance into Pisces provides the opportunity to allow yourself time for meditation/prayer or to get lost in the simplicity of watching a great film. Enjoy the evening and enjoy your dreams!

Friday, March 28, 2014:

The energy of Friday will best be used by looking back to New Year’s Eve 2013. At that time a New Cycle of intensity of thoughts, ideas, and plans began. Consider your New Year’s resolutions! Consider the thoughts that were intensely capturing your mind at that time. Now we come to a time of opportunity regarding stepping forward on those thoughts, ideas, and plans. Move toward the original intention. Mercury Sextile Pluto while we slept last night. Think back to what your plans were, do some research on issue today. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by. The energy at this time is very supportive of bringing that plan forward. However, this is an opportunity it is not a gift! This is the time to research and plan. Get your ideas on paper, set some stones in place, make preparations to move forward. Adjust the plan, be ready to take the first serious steps forward in mid-April.
The Pisces Moon reflects the energy of drifting, imagination, and sensitivity. Don’t expect a wild night on the town; stay home, watch an old movie, read some poetry, touch spirit.

Saturday, March 29, 2014:

As Saturday begins with Mercury Conjunct Chiron our attention is brought to the healing of old wounds. This Aspect begins a New Cycle, we are able to fully release one old wound even as we begin the process of encountering and healing another wounded space within. So much healing energy exists within the mind.
Saturday provides another long VOC* Moon (Pisces) lasting from 9:44 AM EDT until the Moon enters Aries at 9:54 PM EDT. The final aspect the Moon makes while in Pisces is a Trine to Saturn. As we approach Sunday’s New Moon we are in the very Darkest Phase of the Moon. This is a day to focus inward or on selfless service to others. There is great inner stability even as we are in touch will deep emotion and powerful emotional issues.  
This weekend is highly charged with Venus energy as well. With Venus still in Aquarius our values are are anything but simple. We seek revolutionary change, unusual forms of beauty, and eccentric partners with different world views from our own. Venus Thine Mars at 3:04 PM EDT and Square Saturn shortly thereafter (5:13 PM EDT). Consider where in your life you would benefit from looking at your level of integrity in your relationships and in you personal value system.  With Mars still retrograde there may be a lot to consider regarding how we use our assertive energies as well as our anger and aggression.  Consider as well, how your integrity is being expressed through your sexuality and your use of your physical being.

Sunday, March 30, 2014:

Take a very quiet morning on Sunday. This brings us to the darkest point of the Lunar Cycle. The New Moon is exact at 2:45 PM EDT.
With the Sun and the Moon conjunct at 9° Aries we begin a New Lunar Cycle.  Here in the Northern Hemisphere we are ready to fully embrace Spring! 
Spend time alone, consider how you want this Cycle to manifest over the coming weeks. Take a walk in to woods today. Watch and listen for signs of Spring! How is the energy of Spring manifesting in all areas of your life. What areas of your life are out of balance and need to have this energy focused upon? 
Sunday evening brings with it the intensity, once again, of the Aries Moon making contact with the Square pattern between Uranus and Pluto as they build toward that Grand Cross. There is no denying the intensity and pressure. 
Take it easy this evening, no expectations, no plans. Spend a quiet evening with a good book. Learn something new; open to a new idea of innovation and expansion.
* In my weekly reports I am exploring 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 are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to it’s VOC time, as that aspect holds it’s influence throughout the VOC*
The Aspects I consider: Conjunctions, Sextiles, Squares, Trines, and Oppositions
The Planets I am working with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
*VOC (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. This can consist of several minutes or many hours. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment; times ideally suited for rest and contemplation.
