The important thing today is the profoundly significant conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus at 10:27 pm EDT.

There is no denying the intensity in the environment. This is reflected by the Sun square Pluto which occurs at 1:01 pm EDT. This has been building for several days and culminates today. Considering the full cycle of intensity between the Sun and Pluto, look back to the start of their cycle on January 20, 2024. It is time now to take action on anything of great importance or intensity that began at that time. Do not be surprised by a profound sense of challenge and a deep encounter with power dynamics, control, and hidden or half-truths. We may need to confront our deepest fears and insecurities, as well as the darker aspects of our psyche and relationships. This will be clearly felt in the collective as well. Face whatever shadows you encounter, and embrace personal growth and empowerment as you navigate intensity with authenticity and resilience.

Questions or contemplations for today:

  • What intense power issues began in January 2024 in the house of your natal chart that holds Capricorn?
  • What houses hold Taurus and Aquaris in your natal chart? These are the areas of your life that will present a powerful conflict.

The Week Ahead

“During a solar eclipse, the sky unveils its secrets, revealing the dance of cosmic forces and reminding us of the extraordinary interconnectedness of all things.” – Unknown

___

EMBRACE CHANGE: TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE – Monday, April 8, 2024

Anticipate an extraordinary moment today as our lives pivot in new directions. The  Full Solar Eclipse occurs at 2:17 pm EDT. This significant phenomenon occurs within the cardinal fire sign of Aries, infusing the event with attributes of resilience, determination, courage, and bravery. As the sun briefly shields itself behind the moon’s shadow, it signifies a moment of deep reflection and potential unalterable change. As the eclipse comes into alignment it is conjunct Chiron, the planet associated with healing profound vulnerabilities.

This convergence suggests that amidst the fiery energies of Aries lies an opportunity for profound inner healing. The conjunction with Chiron implies that the healing journey addresses longstanding wounds or vulnerabilities. For those of you who know your natal chart, determine the house occupied by Aries. This will provide valuable insights into the nature of the transformative energies and how they impact you personally. Whether the changes unfold suddenly or gradually over the next six months, this eclipse marks a crucial juncture in our personal and collective quest for self-discovery, healing, and evolution.

As the moon moves away from its alignment with the sun, it conjuncts Mercury, currently in retrograde motion. This hints at a message of healing that Mercury, the planet of communication and intellect, is revisiting and considering during its retrograde phase.  Consider yourself invited to embrace your vulnerabilities, engage in deeply honest introspection, and actively participate in your journey toward personal and collective healing.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • If you have Aries prominent in your natal chart, do you think you are experiencing the effects of this solar eclipse differently?
  • Do you have planets between 18 – 20 degrees of Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) in your natal chart? What is your experience?
  • How will you harness the energy of this eclipse to facilitate personal growth and transformation?
  • How might the retrograde motion of Mercury during this time influence your ability to process and integrate the healing messages revealed by the eclipse?

NAVIGATING THE AFTERMATH: – Tuesday, April 9, 2024

As the day begins you may that you must assimilate the intensity of yesterday’s solar eclipse. The Moon enters Taurus at 7:23 am EDT, showing us that stability is still available to catch us if we falter. Taurus provides a stabilizing influence encouraging you to find comfort in simplicity and embrace earthly pleasures. This is a time to prioritize self-care and indulge in moments of tranquility amidst life’s fluctuations.

However, the day doesn’t lack for more powerful forces. At 10:35 am EDT, the Moon squares Pluto, marking a period of intense emotions and possible internal power struggles. This is a simple moon transit, and as such will pass quickly. Listen to the voice within that urges you to explore your inner workings and confront buried feelings or issues that may arise.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What practical steps can you take to assimilate yesterday’s Solar Eclipse? 
  • What practical steps can you take to navigate the intensity of the Moon’s square with Pluto?

BUILDING THE STRUCTURE FOR A DREAM – Wednesday, April 10, 2024

Today unfolds with the Moon continuing its tranquil stroll through Taurus. Encourage yourself to savor the simple joys of life while prioritizing self-care and rest. This grounding influence invites us to indulge in sensory pleasures and find comfort in the familiar rhythms of our daily routines.

However, an important occurrence happens at 4:35 pm, as Mars conjoins Saturn at 21 degrees Pisces. This conjunction brings together the assertive energy of Mars (not so assertive in Pisces) with the disciplined structure of Saturn. Conjunctions always end one cycle and begin another. This begins a cycle of building a structure to support an important dream in your life. Given that this conjunction is in the watery realm of Pisces, it may manifest as a subtle yet powerful undercurrent, urging you to confront your limitations and channel your ambitions with patience and strategic planning. It’s a time to harness your inner strength and perseverance, knowing that disciplined action will lead to long-term growth.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • If you have personal planets or points in your natal chart between 20 – 22 degrees of any mutable sign (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) the Mars Saturn conjunction is very personal for you. What is your experience?
  • What practical strategies will help you navigate the assertive discipline of Mars conjoining Saturn (look to the house that holds Pisces in your natal chart)?

GEMINI’S AGILITY AND MERCURY’S REVIEW – Thursday, April 11, 2024

Today brings a dynamic shift in the astrological atmosphere as the Moon enters Gemini at 8:59 am EDT. This infuses the day with a sense of curiosity and a thirst for intellectual stimulation. Under the influence of Gemini, your mind may feel more agile, active, and adaptable, encouraging you to seek new experiences and engage in lively conversations with those around you.

As the day unfolds, a heightened awareness of assertiveness and possibly anger permeates your thinking and communication, as the Sun conjoins Mercury (currently retrograde) in Aries at 7:02 pm EDT. This occurs at the midpoint of Mercury’s retrograde journey (22 degrees Aries) and marks a turning point in our introspective exploration of the fiery realm of Aries. The Sun combined with Mercury’s retrograde motion, asks us to explore our thought processes, communication patterns, and mental attitudes specific to the assertive, impulsive, and sometimes selfish nature of Aries. Continue reviewing and reassessing your ideas, projects, and plans. Remain vigilant for any insights or revelations that may surface. Embrace the opportunity for inner dialogue and self-discovery, you may gain great clarity and understanding as you navigate the remaining days of Mercury’s retrograde cycle.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • How do you navigate anger or selfishness in the area of life represented by the house that holds Aries in your natal chart?
  • How can you shift aggression to healthy assertiveness? 
  • How can you express these powerful energies with awareness and compassion?

TENSION AND EASE – Friday, April 12, 2024

Today brings a mix of tension and ease as the Moon continues its passage through Gemini. Early in the day, the Moon forms a square aspect to Saturn, followed by a square aspect to Mars. This brings our attention back to the conjunction between them several days ago. This suggests a somewhat stressful and challenging day. You may encounter frustrations, limitations, resentments, or disappointments. However, it’s important to remember that Moon transits are fleeting, and any discomfort experienced during this time should pass quickly.

As the day progresses, the evening brings more friendly and harmonious energies, as the Moon forms a sextile aspect to Mercury. This encourages open and easy communication, mental clarity, and a sense of ease in our interactions. It’s a favorable evening for socializing and engaging in fun stimulating conversations.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What house holds Gemini in your natal chart? 
  • How can you avoid the frustrations early in the day and engage in easy communications in the evening?

NAVIGATING THE TIDES OF EMOTIONS – Saturday, April 13, 2024

At 10:46 am EDT, the Moon in Gemini forms a fleeting square aspect to Neptune. This may stir up some confusion or disillusionment. Your perceptions and intuition may momentarily be clouded leaving you uncertain or disoriented. Moon transits pass quickly, and any confusion experienced during this time will dissipate as swiftly as it arose.

At 1:44 pm EDT, the Moon leaves Gemini behind to enter the cardinal water sign of Cancer. This brings you into a more sensitive atmosphere lasting several days. Cancerian energy encourages you to prioritize your emotional needs and seek solace in the comfort of your home and family. This is a time to turn inward, focus on self-care, and nurture yourself and those you love. Remember to be gentle with yourself and others as you navigate the ebb and flow of emotions. Create a safe space for introspection and allow yourself to honor and process your feelings carefully..

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What strategies can you employ to navigate moments of confusion or disorientation? 
  • How can you make the most of the nurturing and emotionally sensitive energy of the Moon’s transit through Cancer this evening?

 

___

EMOTIONAL STRENGTH – Sunday, April 14, 2024

Today offers a powerful nurturing atmosphere as the Moon remains in Cancer throughout the day. As a cardinal water sign, Cancer embodies the archetype of the protector. This is no weak sign as it brings to mind the mother bear fiercely safeguarding her cubs. Cancer’s strength lies in its nurturing embrace and ability to initiate action and defend what it holds dear. Cancer guides us through deep emotions and finds great strength in the power of love and protection. Prioritize your emotional well-being, seek comfort in the familiarity of home and family, and protect those you love.

As the evening approaches, the Moon forms a quickly passing lovely trine aspect to Saturn and Mars, adding a harmonious touch to the end of the day. This offers stability and groundedness, allowing us to channel our emotions and energies with purpose and determination. This is a great time for productive endeavors, practical planning, and disciplined action toward your goals.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • Who in your life needs protection and guidance? Can you offer that?
  • Do you need protection and guidance? Can you ask for that?
  • How can you make the most of the stability and groundedness of the evening?

Jupiter – Uranus Conjunction: Wild Change [For All 12 Signs]

Jupiter – Uranus Conjunction: Wild Change [For All 12 Signs]

On April 20, 2024, a significant celestial event unfolds as Jupiter aligns with Uranus at 21º Taurus. This conjunction marks a pivotal moment in a 14-year cycle, prompting reflection on historical occurrences during past conjunctions and the inherent significance of each planetary force.

In our discussions, my cohort Jennie and I delve into the profound implications of this conjunction. Taurus, the sign where this alignment occurs, draws attention to themes such as environmental stewardship, resource management, and the pursuit of beauty and equilibrium. Moreover, the symbolism of Jupiter, representing expansion, and Uranus, emblematic of radical change, underscores the potential for transformative growth and societal evolution.

We also analyze the broader astrological landscape, considering the roles of Venus and Mars in the unfolding narrative. Venus, as the ruler of Taurus, and Mars, governing Aries, add layers of complexity to this powerful interplay.

The Jupiter-Uranus conjunction invites us to transcend limitations, embrace innovation, and broaden our collective consciousness. However, navigating such seismic shifts requires courage and adaptability. We emphasize the importance of accepting change gracefully, rather than resisting it.

Furthermore, we draw parallels between this conjunction and the recent Aries Solar Eclipse, highlighting the synchronicity of cosmic events. Mercury’s retrograde motion serves as a poignant reminder of the need for introspection and mindfulness during this period of flux.

Our counsel is to ground oneself in nature, cultivate somatic awareness, and seek solace in the support of loved ones. Additionally, we recommend the clips in the video that relate to your Rising and Sun signs, as well as delving into the significance of the upcoming Libra Lunar Eclipse and the Aries Solar Eclipse.

Wishing you clarity and resilience on your journey,

Laurie

The Time Between Eclipses

The period between lunar and solar eclipses holds considerable significance and is a time of heightened energy, potential confusion, and profound change. Eclipses symbolize moments of profound change, a pivot point in collective and individual consciousness. This is a time of introspection, emotional clarity, and the shedding of old patterns or beliefs that no longer serve one’s growth.

The interlude between these two celestial events – the lunar eclipse on March 25th and the solar eclipse on April 8th) serves as a bridge between endings and beginnings, offering a window for reflection, realignment, and conscious intention setting. It’s a time to delve deep into one’s psyche, unearth buried desires, and clarify aspirations for the future. The energy during this phase may feel intense, yet it presents a ripe environment for personal growth, spiritual evolution, and aligning with one’s soul’s path.

Pay attention to synchronicities, trust your intuition, and remain open to the opportunities for growth and transformation that arise. By harnessing the potent energies of the lunar and solar eclipses, we can navigate this transitional phase with grace, intentionality, and a deep sense of empowerment.

In our latest video, Jennie and I explore the significance of this celestial event, dissecting its chart and deciphering its influence on individuals based on their Rising or Sun sign. This potent Aries Solar Eclipse beckons us to confront what emerges from our subconscious, urging us to embrace a fresh approach to harnessing our unique strengths.

Astrologically, this Solar Eclipse unfolds with four planets plus Chiron in Aries: the Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mercury. Mercury’s current retrograde emphasizes the need for introspection and careful thinking. The precise conjunction of Chiron with the Solar Eclipse underscores the imperative of confronting deep-seated wounds associated with the Aries archetype, which each of us carries within. With Mars (the ruling planet of Aries) in Pisces, we’re encouraged to recognize that vulnerability is not a weakness but a strength. By harnessing the dynamic energy of Aries, we can move forward with confidence and courage while embracing compassion.

Reflect on significant life changes that occurred around April 8, 2005, during a previous Aries Solar Eclipse at the same degree. Additionally, remember that your natal chart holds paramount importance in understanding the impact of this lunation. Individuals with planets or angles near 19º of cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn) will feel its effects more intensely.

For further insights, watch our Aries Season and Libra Lunar Eclipse video.

Eclipse Season Begins

The week begins with the Lunar Eclipse on Monday at 3 am EDT, this sets a powerful tone for the days ahead. Those with personal planets or points between 4 – 6 degrees of any Cardinal sign—Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn—are especially urged to pay attention. The Lunar Eclipse in Libra invites introspection and challenges us to release outdated values, patterns, beliefs, relationships, or situations that no longer serve our growth and evolution.

Sleepy Happy Cat in a Box

As we navigate the energy of this Lunar Eclipse, keep the upcoming Aries Solar Eclipse on April 8th in mind. The two eclipses together mark a pivotal time in our journey forward. The time between eclipses is a sacred time for inner work, self-reflection, and spiritual practices. It is a time to delve into meditation, journaling, or other soul-nurturing activities that foster a deep connection with ourselves and the divine.

Monday’s Lunar Eclipse occurs in the sign of Libra, putting issues regarding partnerships in the spotlight for change. Pay attention to the shifting dynamics in your connections with others. Insights gained during this eclipse may catalyze important conversations and spark transformative changes in your partnerships. Use this time between eclipses to engage in healthy communications and mutual understanding. This is a time to nurture the bonds that enrich your life.

Reflect on insights as they come and process any emotions that surface. Use the time between these eclipses to integrate any newfound realizations. Approach the changes you are becoming aware of with openness, grace, curiosity, and a willingness to embrace what comes. These two weeks may well pivot your life and your partnerships in a new direction.

NAVIGATING THE LUNAR ECLIPSE: EMBRACING WISDOM – Monday, March 25, 2024

Whether you know it or not, you wake this morning absorbing the subtle yet profound influence of the Lunar Eclipse. Think of an eclipse as beckoning you to pause and reflect with reverence and maturity on the wisdom that unfolds in the quiet depths of darkness.

Watch our video about this important Lunar Eclipse

As the Earth’s shadow temporarily obscures the glow of the Moon, we are asked to examine the shadows within our connections—unspoken truths, unmet needs, and unresolved conflicts. This is a time for honest communication, introspection, and seeking peaceful harmony in our interactions. Just as the eclipse marks an end and a beginning, we are reminded that relationships also undergo cycles of transformation, renewal, and evolution.

Despite the usual inclination during a new moon to plant seeds for the future, lunar eclipses invite us to delve deeper, considering the complexities of what must be released before new seeds can grow. Karma is at work during these pivotal times. When karma is activated the veil between the past and the future grows thin. At these times, engage in introspection and pay attention to your inner patterns as you become aware of them. Notice and acknowledge the lessons learned and the emotions stirring within you.

What attachments are you clinging to that hinder your growth? What burdens weigh heavy on your heart, that are awaiting release?

Amid the eclipse’s quiet intensity, seek wisdom and solace deep within the guidance of your inner knowing. Honor endings as much as beginnings and recognize that within darkness lies the beginnings of profound change.  As you navigate this lunar eclipse, do so with grace and maturity, trusting in the natural rhythms of the cosmos.

NAVIGATING RELATIONSHIPS – Tuesday, March 26, 2024

With the Moon continuing its journey through Libra today, the subtle echoes of yesterday’s lunar eclipse linger in the atmosphere, gently nudging us to reflect on the dynamics of our relationships. Lunar eclipses serve as powerful catalysts, guiding us along our karmic or destined path while shining a light on areas of our lives that require attention. Today, take a moment to observe the intricate dance of connection and communication in your interactions with others, approaching each encounter with a discerning eye and an open heart.

Today we are offered a pause—a moment of stillness to absorb the energies of the eclipse and reflect on our deepest desires. Amidst this quietude, consider how to cultivate balance and grace in your life and relationships. Libra, represented by the symbol of the Scales, beckons us to seek equilibrium in all facets of our existence, whether our relationships, work-life harmony, or personal plans and endeavors. Prioritize cooperation, compromise, and fairness, as you strive to balance conflicting energies in your surroundings.

 

EMOTIONAL DEPTHS – Wednesday, March 27, 2024

The Moon enters Scorpio at 5:03 am EDT, signaling a dive into deeper emotional territory. With this placement, we may find ourselves continuing the introspection of the past few days.  When the Moon is in Scorpio we naturally probe the depths of our inner world. An aspect between the Moon and Pluto at 8:38 am EDT pushes us to address buried emotions or power dynamics that may arise. This is an opportunity for growth and self-awareness as long as we acknowledge and take action on what no longer serves us. This is not the time to sweep these issues under the rug.

Later in the day, the Moon forms a harmonious trine with Mars (12:19 pm EDT). This offers strength and determination and encourages us to channel emotional intensity into productive action. By embracing Scorpio’s intense need for change and Mars’ assertiveness, we can navigate challenges and emerge stronger for the experience.

___

CHANGE AND INTIMACY – Thursday, March 28, 2024

At 9:58 am EDT, Venus forms a sextile to Uranus, sparking opportunities for spontaneity and innovation in your relationships and creative pursuits. Sextiles often show us opportunities, we may have missed but have been present all along. Coming on the heels of the Libra eclipse earlier in the week, this may wake us to possibilities for renewal and growth in our partnerships. This aspect encourages us to embrace authenticity and open-mindedness, inviting unexpected sparks of inspiration that can ignite our relationships. You may see the wisdom of breaking free from routine and exploring new avenues of expression, infusing your partnerships with excitement and novelty.

The Moon continues through Scorpio, setting the stage to continue deepening your connections. Later in the evening, the Moon opposes Uranus at 9:46 pm, followed by a harmonious trine to Venus at 11:02 pm. These aspects highlight themes of intimacy and emotional breakthroughs, with the Uranus opposition potentially bringing sudden insights or disruptions. The subsequent trine to Venus offers comfort and harmony, inviting us to nurture close connections and seek a balance between independence and intimacy.

___

A WELCOME SHIFT OF FOCUS – Friday, March 29, 2024

Today, the Moon spends much of the day traveling through the powerful fixed water sign of Scorpio. At 11:40 am EDT, the Moon forms a lovely trine aspect with Neptune enhancing our intuition and inviting us to trust our inner guidance and explore the mysterious realm of our dreams and imagination.

As the day progresses, the Moon enters adventurous Sagittarius at 3:52 pm EDT, signaling a shift towards enthusiasm and exploration. This prompts us to broaden our horizons, embrace new experiences, and approach the unknown with optimism. While Scorpio’s influence may have revealed hidden truths this morning, Sagittarius inspires us to pursue our dreams with faith and enthusiasm this evening.

___

ADVENTURE AND RESPONSIBILITY – Saturday, March 30, 2024

Today, the Moon continues through Sagittarius, offering a sense of adventure and optimism. At 11:45 pm EDT, the Moon forms a harmonious trine aspect with the Sun bringing a vibrant energy of confidence and self-assurance and encouraging us to align our emotions with our true desires. This reminds us to embrace authenticity and live our highest purpose.

Amidst Sagittarius’ exuberance, the Moon encounters a square aspect with Saturn at 5:29 pm EDT, presenting a sobering reminder of reality and responsibility. This will pass quickly but does challenge us to confront obstacles and limitations in our path. This is also an opportunity for growth and maturity as it encourages patience, discipline, and perseverance. By embracing the optimism of Sagittarius as well as the stabilization of Saturn, we can navigate today’s challenges and emerge stronger.

___

EXPERIENCE AND ADVENTURE – Sunday, March 31, 2024

The Moon continues its travels through the adventurous sign of Sagittarius today, inviting us to embrace a spirit of exploration and optimism. Sagittarius, the sign known for its love of freedom, discovery, and truth, encourages us to expand our horizons. This energizing and buoyant atmosphere urges us to venture beyond our comfort zones and seek new experiences with an open heart and mind. Whether through physical travel, new knowledge, or philosophical discussions, the Sagittarian Moon illuminates the path to greater understanding and growth.

A few details this afternoon may complicate things a bit. However, these are Moon transits, therefore the impact will pass quickly. At 2:06 pm EDT, the Moon forms a tense square aspect with Venus, stirring up potential friction in our relationships and financial matters. Later in the evening, at 6:54 pm EDT, the Moon’s harmonious trine to Mercury ushers in a wave of mental clarity and communicative ease, offering a prime opportunity to resolve misunderstandings. At 8:16 pm EDT, as the Moon squares Neptune, we’re called to navigate the murky waters of illusion and reality. This aspect challenges us to discern truth amidst confusion and trust our intuition in the face of uncertainty.

THE POWERFUL PROTECTION OF CANCER – Monday, March 18, 2024

Throughout the day, notice your desire to connect with loved ones on a deep level. Whether through heartfelt conversations, physical affection, or simply spending time together, you crave emotional closeness. Cancer pulls us toward home and family, so you may feel particularly inclined to reach out to family members or close friends for support and companionship.

SUN ENTERS ARIES [SPRING EQUINOX IN THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE]  – Tuesday, March 19, 2024

The Moon continues its nurturing journey through Cancer until late afternoon, allowing us the morning to deepen emotional connections and seek solace in the familiar comforts of home.

As the afternoon progresses the Moon shifts into Leo at 3:33 pm EDT. You will likely feel a surge of vibrant energy as the afternoon is infused with an atmosphere of warmth, creativity, and theatrical flair.

As the day comes to an end, we reach a powerful shift as the Sun enters Aries. This brings us to the Astrological New Year and the Spring Equinox (this is the Autumnal Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere). At the spring equinox, day and night find a delicate balance, as their lengths are nearly equal worldwide. This is a time when the Earth’s axis is in perfect alignment with the Sun, positioning it directly over the equator.

Symbolically, the Spring equinox heralds a time of renewal and equilibrium, awakening nature from its winter slumber and ushering in new life. Across cultures, it is celebrated as a period of fertility, growth, and the promise of warmer days ahead. This is an auspicious time for setting intentions, embarking on new ventures, and embracing personal transformation. It serves as a poignant reminder of the cyclical rhythms of life and the perpetual renewal of the Earth’s seasons, inviting us to revel in the beauty of nature and welcome the light and warmth of spring after the darkness of winter.

 

In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours. – Mark Twain

 

CREATIVITY AND HEALINGWednesday, March 20, 2024

With the new arrival of Aries’ dynamic energy (Sun entered Aries last night), you’re invited to shed the weight of the past and embrace the boundless potential of the moment. This is a time to harness your inner fire and pursue your passions with unwavering courage and enthusiasm. As you welcome the transformative energy of this New Spring, embrace change as an opportunity for growth and renewal.

The Moon remains in Leo today echoing the fire of the Aries Sun. The Moon in Leo encourages open-hearted generosity and you may find yourself eager to shower those around you with compliments, affection, encouragement, and gifts.

At 1:26 pm EDT, Mercury’s conjunction with Chiron adds depth to your interactions, asking that you engage in deep potentially healing conversations that touch the deep core of your being. This alignment encourages you to explore your deepest wounds and sorrows with self-compassion and understanding, paving the way for profound emotional healing and growth. As you navigate the day, embrace the power of self-expression and vulnerability, and recognize that true healing begins with acknowledging your pain and embracing your journey with courage and grace.

___

EMPOWERMENT AND COMMITMENT – Thursday, March 21, 2024

The day begins with a surge of vibrant energy thanks to the Sun in Aries and the Moon in Leo, both powerful fire signs. The atmosphere is warm with creativity and a desire for self-expression. You are drawn to activities that allow you to shine brightly and command attention. Whether through creative projects, social interactions, or simply expressing yourself with flair, you’re eager to make your mark and leave an impression.

At 4:02 pm EDT, the Sun sextile Pluto casts a powerful influence on the day. This aspect offers an opportunity to delve deep into your passions and pursue your desires with unwavering determination. You may uncover something previously hidden or experience profound insights that lead to personal growth.

Then, at 7:09 pm EDT, Venus conjuncts Saturn bringing a serious tone to the evening. This is a time to consider your steadfast commitment to your relationships and creative endeavors. You may find yourself seeking deeper, more meaningful connections, or committing to long-term goals with purpose and determination.

Astrology is one of the intuitive methods like psychoanalysis and dream interpretation. Like that, it has no need to be judged by the same criteria as physical science.  – Robert Anton Wilson

___

PRACTICALITY AND COMPASSION – Friday, March 22, 2024

By the time you begin the day, the Moon has entered Virgo.  You find it easy to focus on organization and efficiency in your surroundings. You may be drawn to activities of productivity and self-improvement. Whether it’s organizing your workspace, honing your skills, or focusing on your physical health and well-being, you can embrace a methodical approach and accomplish a great deal

At 7:47 pm EDT, Mars enters Pisces. Mars, the planet of action and assertion, takes on a more introspective and intuitive role as it navigates the dreamy waters of Pisces. Mars will remain in Pisces until April 30, 2024.

During this time you may encounter challenges stemming from a clash between assertiveness and sensitivity. Mars in Pisces can sometimes blur the boundaries between action and escapism, leading to confusion or indecision about what actions to take. It may be challenging to assert yourself confidently in situations that require clarity and directness, as the influence of Pisces can soften Mars’ typically assertive energy.

You might find yourself grappling with a desire to avoid confrontation or difficulty asserting your needs. This transit invites you to navigate these challenges by cultivating mindfulness and self-awareness, allowing you to channel Mars’ energy in ways that honor your drive and compassionate nature. By embracing the fluidity of Mars in Pisces, you can find innovative solutions to obstacles while remaining true to your intuition and values. This is a time to take action from your heart rather than your mind.

___

OPTIMISM AND INNOVATION – Saturday, March 23, 2024

The Moon continues through Virgo today, bringing a sense of practicality and efficiency. This is a great day to approach with a meticulous eye for detail, an ideal time for organizing your tasks and attending to responsibilities with precision.

Over the day the Moon forms lovely aspects to Jupiter and Uranus. These harmonious connections infuse the day with optimism, expansion, and spontaneity. Thanks to the influence of Jupiter, you may feel more optimistic about the future and open to new possibilities.  Uranus offers a touch of unpredictability and excitement, inspiring you to break free from routine and embrace something new and possibly out of your normal comfort zone. This is a great day to step outside your comfort zone and explore new avenues for growth and self-expression.

___

PRACTICALITY, ABUNDANCE, AND HARMONY – Sunday, March 24, 2024

The day begins with the Moon in practical Virgo, keeping your attention on the details you were engaged with yesterday. Virgo’s influence encourages you to continue that focus into today. This is a great time to tackle tasks that require precision and care.

At 12:36 pm EDT, Venus in Pisces forms an opportunistic sextile to Jupiter in Taurus. This places a lovely glow over the day, bringing a sense of abundance, expansion, and optimism to your relationships and creative endeavors. You may find yourself feeling more open-hearted and generous, willing to embrace new experiences and opportunities that come your way. This is a time to indulge in life’s pleasures and luxuries while developing gratitude for all you have.

At 4:38 pm EDT, the Moon enters Libra, shifting the emotional energy and turning your focus to harmony and relationships. Under the influence of the Libra Moon, you may seek opportunities for cooperation and compromise in your interactions with others. You’re drawn to beauty, diplomacy, and social situations, making it an ideal time for connecting with loved ones or engaging in peaceful activities with others.
