The Astrology of the Week Ahead

Kairos – Crown of Thorns

Science is the art of creating suitable illusions, which the fool believes or argues against, but the wise person enjoys for their beauty, or their ingenuity, without being blind, to the fact that they are human veil and curtains, concealing the darkness of the unknowable. – Carl Gustav Jung

EMBRACING INITIATIVE – Monday, March 11, 2024

The week begins with a surge of fresh energy as the Aries Moon takes center stage, igniting your sense of initiative and enthusiasm. Here on the other side of the New Moon, you rise to meet the day with renewed purpose, eager to embrace new beginnings and confidently pursue your goals.

As the day unfolds, Venus gracefully enters Pisces at 4:50 pm EST, infusing your interactions with compassion and empathy. Venus is delighted to be in Pisces where it is considered exalted. Your sensitivity to the emotions of others is amplified, allowing you to empathize deeply and connect on a soulful level. This is a time to embrace compassion, forgiveness, and unconditional love in your relationships, both romantic and platonic. Follow your inspiration to express your creativity through artistic endeavors or to seek out experiences that nourish your spirit. Venus will remain in Pisces until Apri 4th. Find the house that holds Pisces in your natal chart for greater understanding. You will find brief meanings (greatly improved) on each of the houses below the week’s daily posts.

Later in the evening, the Aries Moon aligns with Chiron at 11:42 pm EST, creating a space for emotional healing and growth. You’re encouraged to confront any lingering wounds with courage and self-compassion, fostering personal understanding and resilience as you navigate your journey.


ACTION LEADS TO STABILITY – Tuesday, March 12, 2024

Throughout most of the day, the Aries Moon fuels you with its fiery vigor, inspiring passionate boldness in your pursuits. You’re propelled by a sense of urgency and independence, ready to tackle challenges head-on.

As evening approaches and the clock strikes 7:29 pm EST, the energy shifts. The Taurus Moon takes over, offering a steady embrace that encourages you to slow down and find comfort in the present moment. Under Taurus’ influence, appreciate the simple pleasures and the stability of your surroundings. Embrace this moment of calm following the day’s hustle and bustle, knowing that you need both the heat of Aries and the stability of Taurus on your journey.


EMBRACE GROWTH AND ABUNDANCE – Wednesday, March 13, 2024

The stabilizing presence of the Taurus Moon instills a deep sense of groundedness to hold onto through the day. As you go about your routines, you’re urged to expand that stabilizing force in every aspect of your life, whether it be your relationships or personal aspirations. The conjunction of the Moon with expansive Jupiter at 6:13 pm EST amplifies your optimism and fuels your belief in endless possibilities.

This is a time to wholeheartedly embrace the abundance that surrounds you, recognizing the wealth of opportunities for growth and expansion in every corner of your life. Today’s Taurus Moon offers guidance as you explore the vast potential that lies ahead, encouraging you to dream big and reach for your dreams with unwavering confidence. The house that holds Taurus in your natal chart will support your intuitive understanding of where these possibilities lay. You will find brief meanings (greatly improved) on each of the houses below the week’s daily posts.


EMBRACE CHANGE – Thursday, March 14, 2024

The steady influence of the Taurus Moon is disrupted as the Moon aligns with unpredictable Uranus at 5 am EST, setting the stage for unexpected twists and turns throughout the day. At 11:01 am EST, a square-off with assertive Mars challenges you to embrace change and respond to unforeseen circumstances with resilience and adaptability.

Despite these cosmic challenges, there are bright opportunities today as the Moon supports our core spiritual understanding with sextile aspects to both the Sun and Neptune.

At 10:16 pm, the Moon enters curious Gemini, infusing the evening with a sense of curiosity and versatility. This encourages you to explore new ideas and engage in stimulating conversations, encouraging growth and expanding your horizons.



Today we exist in the dynamic energy of the Gemini Moon propeling you into a day filled with lively conversations and intellectual pursuits. Yet, amidst the excitement, challenges may arise as the Moon squares off with both Venus and Saturn. These planetary alignments prompt you to navigate conflicts in your relationships and responsibilities with kindness and maturity. This offers a time to develop the delicate balance between your desires and the commitments you have made.

Despite the tensions, the day may bring, the Gemini Moon urges adaptability and open-mindedness. Seek solutions that honor both your individual needs and your responsibilities. In this way, you move toward harmony and understanding in your interactions.




As today unfolds, the Gemini Moon guides you in a balancing act between action and reflection. It is your job to find equilibrium amidst the fluctuating energies of the day.

At 11:11 pm, the First Quarter Square Moon Phase marks a pivotal moment for assessment and adjustment. It prompts you to reflect on your progress and make any necessary course corrections. This phase invites you to find harmony between your aspirations and the practical realities of the present time. With the Sun in Pisces and the Moon at cross purposes in Gemini, allow yourself to move with both active curiosity and deep introspection.

Embrace the lessons of the past and gaze toward the future with interest and determination. Trust in your ability to navigate the twists and turns of life, knowing that with eyes open, each step brings you closer to your goals.


REST, RECHARGE, REPLENISH – Sunday, March 17, 2024

Today welcomes you with a gentle shift as the Moon transitions into the nurturing waters of Cancer at 4:41 am EST. This infusion of emotional sensitivity sets the tone for a day of deep emotions, a time to look inward and care for the self.

At 6:22 am EST, the Sun aligns with Neptune at 27 degrees Pisces, heightening your intuition and leading you towards mystical insights and deep compassion. This planetary alignment encourages you to trust your inner wisdom and connect with the deeper currents of your soul, fostering inner peace and emotional well-being. Find the house that holds Pisces in your natal chart for greater understanding. You will find brief meanings (greatly improved) on each of the houses below the week’s daily posts.

As you journey through the day, take time to honor your feelings and prioritize self-care and the development of compassion. Do not follow the path of the mind today.  Today you must follow the path of intuition, the quiet voice within. Allow yourself to rest, recharge, and replenish your spirit in preparation for the week ahead. By nurturing your emotional well-being, you cultivate resilience and strength, enabling you to face whatever challenges may come your way with grace and poise.
