With Mercury square Saturn on Monday, sextile Pluto and opposing Jupiter on Tuesday, and then conjunct Chiron on Thursday, the planet of quick motion and thinking is highly engaged throughout the week. If you are waiting for calm, quiet days, you may have to wait for a while. Expect ideas and thinking to be overly active and moving in many directions at once.

Jupiter makes a glorious trine to Pluto on Wednesday bringing a flow of opportunity and empowerment. Thursday morning you will want to pay special attention to your meditation, as there is the suggestion of deep healing within the mind as Mercury conjunct Chiron.

On Sunday, the Sun enters Aries and we herald in the Spring Equinox. This is a moment we look forward to as it heralds the moment of Spring! This brings us to the pivotal moment in the year when day equals night; when the light and dark equalize. You can feel it in the air, hear it in the songbirds, and see it in the quality of light.

We all breathe a sign of relief.

Monday, March 14, 2016:

The week begins with the Moon in Gemini, echoing the activity within our minds even as we begin the week. At 3:25 PM EDT, Mercury squares Saturn. When these two planets come together, the mind or what the mind perceives becomes serious. Responsibility cannot be ignored, and you may encounter some type of restriction to your ideas or your thinking. Perhaps, there is fear around some communication that you know is necessary.

This is the First Quarter Square in the cycle between Mercury and Saturn. Something that began back in November 2015 is requiring that you give it attention and take action on it now. Did you start a new study, a new serious conversation, or did you take on a new responsibility at that time? If so, now is the time to push that agenda forward in a direct manner. The full results of the action you take now will be fully expressed in June.

Venus squares Mars on Monday afternoon as well. An important thing to understand when Venus squares Mars is that you need to do something concrete to bring your primary relationship forward. What does your relationship need now? If you are not in a primary relationship, you can use this aspect to care for your primary relationship to yourself or to take direct action in seeking out a partner. If you are in a primary relationship (or in the process of developing one you would like to see thrive), there are things that must be shared and things you need to say that have not yet been said.

Yes, there is a risk involved. However, not saying what needs to be said will extract a high cost and will not reflect reality.

Pay attention to any issues that come up between you and a partner over the next day or two. Do not underestimate the importance of how you both manage your communications.



Tuesday, March 15, 2016:

Before you even wake up this morning, there are two major aspects in the heavens. At 2:58 AM EDT, Mercury sextile Pluto, suggesting an opportunity of empowerment is able to come out of the challenging thoughts or communications you had on Monday.

Perhaps, there is some deep problematic thinking that you are being asked to release. Keep your eyes open and let go of thoughts that are holding you back. Whatever is released now will open your ability to bring your true gifts into the world.

Mercury opposes Jupiter at 5:41 AM EDT, suggesting clarity on what began in early August 2015. This is a cycle of expanding your thinking and your ability to communicate. There is still more that needs to be said. Yes, go ahead and say it. It is okay. It is necessary.

Tuesday also brings us to the First-Quarter Moon, asking that we consider what needs to be done to move forward with the seed you planted at the New Moon on March 8th.

Yes, the First-Quarter Moon is a square between the Sun and Moon, and generally, feels restrictive and heavy. You may feel this as a sense of desiring something that is totally incompatible with something else that you deeply need; this often shows up as a conflict between our desires and our needs.

Finding balance may be a challenge. In case of interpersonal conflict, pay attention. Is this really an external conflict with another or is it an internal conflict that you are projecting onto a relationship? Be honest with yourself.

At 8:57 PM EDT, the Moon enters Cancer offering the simplicity of love at the end of a deeply stressful day. Rest in comfort, allowing love to open your heart.

Take advantage of the powerful, expansive energies available during the middle of this week. At 4:05 PM EDT, Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion forms a free-flowing trine aspect to Pluto, the energy of divinity and empowerment.

At this time, you are more capable than you know of bringing full manifestation into an area you have invested great energy into. You may feel powerful, capable, and even lucky at this time. Do not wait passively for this transit to activate your life. Get out into the world, reach for what your heart desires and be ready to accept what is given.

Consider your strengths and what you have to offer the world. Understand that as you help others, so you help yourself. Go out in the world today and offer your best actions for the future of humankind, even if that consists only of showing kindness to the grocery clerk or the homeless person on the street.

Synchronicity and surprising incidents may support you in ways that are unexpected or even jaw dropping. If you have personal planets or angles between 15° and 18° of any earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), this will be most auspicious in your circumstances and life.

Think back to what you acquired understanding about during the time between the Summer of 2013 & Spring of 2014. Now is the time to bring that knowledge into a fuller experience of your life; what can you now teach others that you learned at that time? Understand the importance of what you bring to the table and freely teach what you deeply understand.

Keep yourself open to possibilities, wonder, and magic.



Thursday, March 17, 2016:

On Thursday, you will want to focus your attention on releasing and healing negative thought patterns. Mercury conjunct Chiron at 9:28 AM EDT; this begins a cycle of healing deeply negative patterns that have taken root in your mind since childhood.

In order to work effectively with this opportunity, it is important to maintain deep love and compassion for yourself and the reasons you built these patterns in the first place.

Chances are that the patterns were formed in early childhood as a way to protect your self. That protection is no longer needed and the pattern left behind is now holding you back. Look deeply and release.

Firmly embedded patterns in your mind took time to build and will take time to dismantle. Perhaps, the first step is to begin that meditation practice you have talked about for so long. In this process, you must remember love and compassion to the self.

Thursday’s Cancer Moon assists in keeping you close to your heart and your loved ones. Show kindness in all your interactions.



Friday, March 18, 2016:

If it were possible for you to take a long weekend, this would be a lovely day to start it. It looks like a delightful weekend ahead. At 3:55 AM EDT, the Moon enters Leo and we are able to leave behind some of the more pressing emotional concerns that have held over since the New Moon and solar eclipse from last week.

Friday is not a day to try to keep yourself to a strict schedule or to be overly concerned with accomplishments or details. This is a day to let loose and move in the direction of what pulls you forward. With the Moon in feisty, playful Leo, forming a free flow of energy (trine) to Mars in Sagittarius this is a time for playful expression, dramatic play, and sheer pleasure.

Don’t take yourself too seriously, and don’t allow yourself to be put into a box that is too tight to fit your expansive nature.

Allow others to express themselves freely by make this a day of no judgment. Yes, dance as if no one were watching… and make space for others to do the same.

Saturday, March 19, 2016:

More delightful fun, and playful energy continues through Saturday. Get away from your ordinary life this weekend if you can. Saturday is the last full day of the Sun in Pisces. Enjoy the sense of touching on an intangible dream.

A Grand Trine is formed on Saturday between the Moon in Leo, Saturn in Sagittarius, and Uranus in Aries. You will want to take an active role in making sure any needs and desires you have for friendship and socialization get met.

This Grand Fire Trine can reflect a situation in which you expect others to understand your needs (do you really think they can read your mind?) and you could get left out in the cold. If you make it clear that you want the connection, I expect that they will be delighted to include you.

This is not a day to be coy, be clear and direct about your desires. Go for what you want. Seek enthusiasm, warmth, and playful self-expression.



Sunday, March 20, 2016:

On Sunday, be ready to welcome the new astrological year! 😉

The Sun enters Aries (The Spring Equinox) at 12:30 AM EDT and we release the chill of winter to welcome the warmth of Spring. Spring begins (here in the Northern Hemisphere) as we come to this pivotal moment when the length of the day equals the length of the night.

We all breathe a sign of relief with the knowledge that it is time to make a new start and to welcome all new beginnings.

Aries is the sign of the Ram, the first sign of the zodiac, and has the energy of a newborn infant demanding his right to be here in all his fiery glory. Release the inward cold of winter, break the chains that have held you back, and take your first steps forward into the unknown excitement ahead.

‘Spring Fever’ is just around the corner as plants take on vigorous growth and even LOVE is in the air.

Go ahead! This is the time to initiate new endeavors, love affairs, and to simply embrace life on all levels.


* In these 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 its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.
* 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.

Are you at a crossroad in your life? Are your circumstances other than what you expected?

We can meet for an individual consultations (Burlington, Vermont), by telephone, or on SKYPE!

Life Transitions Require New Perspectives!

It is my goal to empower you in the exploration of the past, present and future of your life.

Let's talk. There is so much to learn and understand.
