If you were born between 1964 – 1967 or 1993 – 1996
Your Saturn Return is at hand!
(specific dates below)
This is a very important time for those of you born between September 1964 and March 1967. As Saturn enters Pisces on March 7th you begin your Second Saturn return. The exception is for those born between mid-September and mid-December 1964. Your natal Saturn is in Aquarius and you are now finishing up your 2nd Saturn Return.
For those of you born between May 1993 and April 1996, this is the start of your first Saturn Return. The exception for those born between the end of June 1993 to late January 1994. Your natal Saturn is in Aquarius and you are now finishing up your 1st Saturn Return.
What is the Saturn return and what can you expect?
Saturn is the planet that represents responsibilities, time, and the development of hard-won wisdom. The Saturn return occurs when Saturn comes back to the position it was in at the time of your birth.
The first Saturn return, at approximately age 29 – 30 is your astrological coming of age. This pushes you into the reality and responsibilities of adulthood.
The second Saturn return, at approximately age 58 – 59 is a reckoning, showing clearly the results of your efforts and hard work over the past 29+ years. You can think of this as Karma or simply as your report card. You will be powerfully challenged if you have not done your work, you will be rewarded if you have.
Saturn demands that we each face reality in the area of our chart where natal Saturn resides. Taking full responsibility for the work necessary in this area will support the development of wisdom as you move forward.
EXCITEMENT AND PRACTICALITY
Monday, March 6, 2023
The week begins with the Moon in Virgo, in its Gibbous phase as it reaches toward tomorrow’s Full Moon. Your emotions attend to practical realities, tasks, and projects. Virgo is the mutable earth sign, practical, adaptable, and willing to navigate changes of direction.
The problematic side of Virgo is overly critical and attached to perfectionism. You may be more sensitive to environmental issues such as light, sound, odors, etc. To avoid the negative manifestations of this Moon placement focus on helping others. You will enjoy folding your laundry, sorting and filing paperwork, and organizing your junk drawers. Doing these types of tasks as a service for others will bring the greatest benefits of this Moon placement.
A sextile aspect is formed between the Sun and Uranus today at 8:41 AM ET. This opens you to a great desire for freedom of self-expression and personal independence. You are more open-minded at this time and willing to accept the differences of others. Creativity is heightened and originality is easily expressed. This is an exciting day drawing your attention to what is unique and unconventional. Go ahead and move outside your comfort zone, find interesting and unusual folks to spend time with.
VIRGO FULL MOON MEETS SATURN INGRESS INTO PISCES
Tuesday, March 7, 2023
Virgo Full Moon at 7:41 AM ET.
Saturn enters Pisces at 8:34 AM ET.
CONNECT WITH OTHERS – LISTEN AND SHARE
Wednesday, March 8, 2023
At 9:44 AM ET, the Moon leaves all thoughts of precision (Virgo) behind and enters the pleasing sign of Libra. This highlights relationships, teamwork, and cooperation over the next few days. While the Moon was in Virgo you wanted things around you to be neat and tidy. Now with the Moon in Libra, you want things to be beautiful, perfection is no longer a consideration.
The Moon in Libra asks that we connect with others in search of diplomatic solutions to important issues. When the Moon is in Libra we can see both sides of situations, topics, and conversations. It can be difficult to take a stand or make a decision. This is a time to listen, learn, and share with an open mind to understanding.
Everyone has reasons for their perspectives. Even when we adamantly disagree with the perspective of others we can learn to model the behavior of tolerance and understanding. Listening and sharing with respect is the only hope we have for consensus.
LOOK AT BOTH SIDES OF CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES
Thursday, March 9, 2023
The Moon continues through Libra today. Seek pleasure and order within your relationships and find diplomatic solutions to difficulties. You do not need to make solid end-game decisions. But it is important to work cooperatively with others and make an effort to understand both sides of any issue.
Your emotional equilibrium requires diplomacy and peaceful interactions. Do your best to understand both sides of every equation and every conversation. Find ways to cooperate with others.
Creating beauty and pleasure in your surroundings will go a long way toward emotional balance as well. Make your home a beautiful place to be. It gets dark so early, holiday lights and candles will be a great blessing today.
EMOTIONAL DEPTH ARRIVES THIS EVENING
Friday, March 10, 2023
Today’s Libra Moon continues to highlight relationships, teamwork, and cooperation. You want to please others and enjoy connections with friends, neighbors, and strangers. Satisfaction comes from connecting with others and keeping your emotions balanced and calm. In the face of potential disagreements or stress, you will search for a diplomatic path forward.
When the Moon is in this cardinal air sign we are able to see both sides of whatever issues are being discussed. This can make it difficult to take a stand or make a decision. Look for gracious, diplomatic, and polite ways to discuss social and personal issues.
At 7:06 PM ET, the Moon leaves Libra behind and enters Scorpio. Your emotions will deepen this evening and over the next few days. Plan for time on your own to explore private and profound feelings.
OPPORTUNITIES AND EXCITEMENT OF MIND
Saturday, March 11, 2023
The Moon is in sultry mysterious Scorpio today. Scorpio is the Fixed Water sign and favors intense and powerful emotional depths. This can suggest a day of going inward to better understand yourself or making profoundly deep connections with others. Working with deep emotions requires that you be honest with yourself and others. This is not easy while the Moon is in this self-protective, sign. Your preference may be to go underground and keep your emotions private.
At 10:04 AM ET Venus forms a sextile aspect to Mars. This opens our awareness to the positive potential of the action resulting from the recent Mars retrograde in Gemini. What new story have you developed about yourself since October? What is the income or love potential of your new understanding? Sextile aspects offer potential, opportunities, and possibilities. With Venus forming the sextile, opportunities are presented through women or women’s issues.
Turn to your women friends. It is through women that we can save the future. It is time to reach for how we can change the future for our daughters and granddaughters.
At 4:04 PM ET, Mercury forms a sextile aspect to Uranus bringing us within sight of the ending of the one-year cycle between them. Pay attention to any new, inventive, or unusual thoughts that you are having today. This may suggest ways that your thinking is preparing for changes that may surprise you over the coming months.
The cycle between Mercury and Uranus teaches us the importance of using our most authentic voice and speaking our most radical truth. The current cycle began in April 2022. We now begin to close that cycle and prepare for a new cycle beginning in late April of this year. The surprising direction of your mind today offers a clue of what is to come.
DEEP POWERFUL WATERS OF SCORPIO
Sunday, March 12, 2023
The moon continues through the deep waters of Scorpio today. This brings your emotions into powerful areas of contemplation and consideration. Do not sweet your emotions under the proverbial rug. Dig into hidden corners of your unconscious and be brutally honest with yourself about what you find there.
When the Moon is in Scorpio allow your emotions to deepen and enter areas of great mystery and intensity. It may be difficult to show vulnerability but if you are able to, you will come to understand the profound strength that can be developed. If you are unable or unwilling to go deep, time alone may be your best bet.
Spend this Sunday with a powerfully intense lover, a deeply emotional movie, or a powerful conversation with your personal journal. The Moon remains in emotional Scorpio before the wee hours of Monday morning. You will wake up tomorrow morning with a very different perspective of your emotional needs and desires.
