MONDAY MAR 23.
Today begins with the Moon in reflective and passive Pisces, conjunct hazy Neptune, and sextile Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto in Capricorn. The afternoon see’s a lunar sextile to Saturn, -now freshly in Aquarius. These configurations place an emphasis on adapting to and taking in a whole lot of changes, especially so with Mercury going forward in Pisces and sextile Uranus, the King Of All Things Random and Unusual. So we have entered a strange new world, where the rules are being completely re-written, and every day we hear something that shocks, amazes, or confuses us. (The conspiracy theories are off the chain under these aspects.) Everything is pretty surreal. To get an idea of what to expect under Saturn’s transit through Aquarius during the next 2 and a half years, let’s look at some previous Saturn in Aquarius transits. In the last one, (1991-1993), we saw apartheid confronted and dismantled via the anti-apartheid act, and it was all about grunge music and flannel. Prior to that, Saturn’s transit through Aquarius from 1962-1964, saw the Civil Rights Act signed into law, banning segregation and employment discrimination against anyone based on race, color or creed, and Ken Kesey and The Merry Pranksters and Timothy Leary popularized psychedelics, so everyone got really high. Prior to that, Saturns transit through Aquarius from 1932-1935 saw the beginning of Roosevelts “New Deal”, which brought social security, infrastructure, and banking regulations in the United States, and helped people up out of the Great Depression. Swing music was big, men dressed like gangsters and women dressed in flapper style dresses and were called “dames”. I don’t want to go back any further, but you get the gist. Saturn in Aquarius focuses on humanitarianism, helping the underdog, freedom, the collective, community, and equality. It’s also fiercely independent, and prepared to stand up for what it believes in. Basically, Saturn in Aquarius is a radical hippie socialist that does a lot of acid, reads a lot of books, has good taste in music, and won’t stand for any injustice. We could see some dramatic, even somewhat radical structural changes under this 2 and a half year transit. It’s actually unavoidable. The Moon heads into Aries around 6 PM PST tonight, and conjoins the Sun and Chiron, in the lead up to the New Moon tomorrow. Combined with it’s sextile to Saturn, this can see the evening wind down on a serious and determined note, and there can be a weird admixture of both patience and impatience. These configurations can be good regarding efforts to gain more confidence, stability, motivation, confidence, and self esteem for the times ahead.
TUESDAY MAR 24.
Today see’s the New Moon in passionate, enthusiastic Aries, conjunct the Sun and Chiron, and, due to the nature of the times, I feel like I shouldn’t fail to mention the sextile this New Moon forms to Hygeia, the asteroid of health and healing. With the Sun in Aries also sextile this asteroid, there is a clear spotlight on matters of health, which is interesting because the last Full Moon was in Virgo, the sign of health, and this kicked off ‘Ronageddon in the US. New Moons are about new beginnings, and in Aries, it’s about as “new” as it gets. This is all about fresh starts, new initiatives, and clean slates. The conjunction to Chiron can see some people feeling vulnerable, in the very least there is a lot of sensitivity in the air, and compassion for peoples suffering. With Venus in Taurus trine Mars, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn, and sextile Neptune in Pisces, there’s a surprising amount of altruism available, but people can also be highly impressionable or easily manipulated or swayed by those with more power than them. This potentiality aside, these are some otherwise really positive, constructive, and promising configurations that have an ease and determination about them. The Moon/Chiron conjunction can see people focus on nurturing themselves and their loved ones via healing or spiritual modalities. Lunar squares to the North and South nodes can see some decisive shifts and preparations for new beginnings in regards our life direction, or plans we are putting into motion. There can be a subtle “edginess” to this math, as even though Venus makes harmonious aspects to Mars, Jupiter, Pluto, and Neptune, combined with Mercury in hazy Pisces in contact to Uranus, it’s all….kind of…ultra intense. It’s just kind of…a LOT. It’s also hard to know what to even believe, and communications, commerce, news, and cognition is all….a bit…..well……it’s out there man…it’s wild. Hopefully, Mercury’s entrance into Aries in April will shed more light on some things, because WHOA MAN. MY BRAIN. At least Venus’ contact to Mars and the outer planets is calming, harmonious, and stabilizing. Pluto conjunct Mars, Jupiter and Saturn is like an intense steamroller that nothing can oppose or question. So in one way or another, everyone has to submit to some powerful forces beyond their control. Over the next 2 and a half years, Saturn in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus and will work diligently to challenge the status quo and authority, and there will be hard won innovations, particularly within large organizations.
WED MAR 25.
Today see’s the Moon in passionate Aries, squaring up to Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. This is gonna be… interesting. The square to Saturn in “social justice warrior”Aquarius doesn’t begin until evening, as the Moon heads into the later degrees of Aries. The majority of the day is driven by the lunar squares to Mars, Jupiter and Pluto, which marks the day with intensity, and there is a fight to push through some drastic, necessary and deeply transformative changes. There can also be an atmosphere of overinflated fear mongering to contend with and rebel against, and with Mercury, the planets of cognition, in sensitive and passive Pisces, many people are very sensitive and extremely psychologically impressionable right now, so it pays to question everything, -particularly power, power structures, powerful institutions, established norms, and authority in general and it’s legitimacy (Moon in warrior Aries square Mars, Jupiter, Pluto in Cap, and Saturn in Aquarius). With the Sun in Aries conjunct Chiron and sextile the asteroid of healing, Hygeia, there’s a “health warrior” vibe to these configurations that’s actually quite fascinating considering the nature of the times. There’s a lot of energy, drive and determination available in these maths, and with Pluto involved, there’s an investigative quality that can also bring much to the surface. This math is big, and fierce. The Moon opposite Juno can highlight some conflicts of interest. With Mercury in Pisces forming a minor hard aspect to Pluto and Jupiter, information received and given now can be having major impact, and there can also be much going on under the surface or hidden from view, in secret, that will potentially come to light later, probably in April, when Mercury reaches Aries. Moon square Mars in Capricorn today is certainly feisty, determined as hell, and amplified all the more by Jupiter and Pluto in rational Capricorn, giving everything a whole lot of impact. I just felt a huge earth quake immediately after typing that. Later in the evening, as the Moon get’s closer to Taurus, it forms a conjunction to Uranus, and squares Saturn in Aquarius. Combined with the Sun in Aries and the New Moons emphasis on health/healing/medicine via links to Chiron and Hygeia, these maths clearly spell out awakenings, revolutions, innovations, shocks, and the unexpected, in regards to health, medicine, and healing modalities. With Venus in Taurus in trine to Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto, much that is going on now is actually really beneficial, and there can be a lot to feel thankful for, and opportunities to increase the overall pleasantness of life, and make deeply positive transformations that have real, tangible, practical, even physical impact, is available. With Mercury in hazy Pisces no longer in contact to unpredictable (but innovative, future oriented) Uranus, the truth is becoming a bit easier to decipher, cognitively, things are less chaotic and scrambled and a bit more peaceful, and common sense and practicality is prevailing in unusual, pleasing, and unexpected ways, in spite of the presence of complete and utter whackness. There can be some resistance to changes, new ideas, or common sense, but it ultimately looks like common sense and perhaps some surprising cognitive breakthroughs are coming in to save the day. Things are definitely being shook up, but in spite of that, remaining surprisingly stable.
THURSDAY MAR 26.
Today see’s the Moon move into grounded, physical, and earthy Taurus, conjunct revolutionary Uranus, and squaring Saturn in Aquarius and Mars in the late degrees of Capricorn. The Sun in Aries conjunct Chiron (the wounded healer) and opposite Juno (partnerships) in Libra continues to highlight conflicts of interest over healing and health. With the emphasis on the physical, practical earth signs combined with the futuristic, humanitarian, and social justice oriented Uranian influence, this can see revolutions in common sense, and both earthly and bodily wisdom slowly but surely setting in, and there can be signs of progress and breakthroughs in cognition, in spite of a great deal of resistance or defensiveness. The need for diplomacy and people pleasing (Sun in Aries opposite Juno in Libra) can mean “watering things down” a bit, or making compromises or concessions in order to achieve “acceptability” for the time being, but with Venus in Taurus trine Mars, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn, the triumph of simple common sense, and beneficial earthly, alchemical, wisdom is assured, and it’s possible there could be much to be excited about. With a lunar sextile to Mercury in tranquil and mystical Pisces later on in the evening, there can be good news, perhaps something to feel relieved or even inspired about. This evening can end on a mellow but pleasantly stimulating note. There can be a lot of synchronicity and serendipity, out of the blue communications, mental/psychic breakthroughs, downloads, or being struck by inspiration, beauty, awe, curiosity, reverence, wonder, or the kindness, compassion, altruism, and humanity of (and/or for) others. Basically, it looks like some good news is coming in that could potentially be exciting or just future AF, but beneficial.
FRIDAY MAR 27.
Today begins on the wings of lunar contacts to both Mercury and Uranus, and then the Moon in Taurus conjuncts Venus midmorning. The afternoon adds in trines to Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn and a sextile to Neptune. These are some powerful, “feel good” energies, (but this can also see powerful people or organizations up to some slippery business). Regardless, there is some potent creativity available in this math, and the emphasis can very much be on pleasure, and enjoying the finer things in life. Creature comforts, beauty, art, music, and all things aesthetically pleasing. This math is The Empress of the Tarot on performance enhancing drugs. The lunar contacts to Venus, Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto can intensify and magnify whatever is felt, and it can be easy to find things to feel good about and boost the spirits, it’s a highly charismatic energy. With the Sun still holding down it’s conjunction to Chiron (the wounded healer), sextile to Hygeia (health) and opposition to Juno (partnerships), there is still some “sensitive issues” and conflicts of interest in the air around health, and it’s making things a bit awkward, but otherwise, these maths are a welcome respite and offer up a lovely platter of pleasantries. Late night see’s the Moon trine Mars in late Capricorn, which could see energy building up for a potentially eventful Saturday. Even if nothing actually happens, there could just be good “physical qui,” and the potential for good vibes, and positive, constructive, beneficial actions or initiatives that could have physical, tangible implications.
SATURDAY MAR 28.
Today see’s the Moon in Taurus conjunct Venus, and trine Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. Mercury also conjoins Neptune in Pisces. This is some extremely interesting math. Lunar trines to the powerful line up to planets in Capricorn, and Saturn freshly in Aquarius, suggests the possibility of new and innovative approaches that challenge the status quo (Saturn in Aquarius/Uranus in Taurus, and Jupiter, Mars, and Pluto in Capricorn) are making an impact. With Saturn and Uranus in square to each other, there’s been (and will probably continue to be) resistance, but something about todays math helps to smooth the way forward for innovative, practical, beneficial, (but common sensical) approaches. With the Moon and Venus holding hands and mirroring one another in aspect, this can be a boon for partnerships, relationship matters, love, money, pleasure, harmony, and all things earthly and physical. There can be some intense, deep transformations underway, and with Mars about to join Saturn in Aquarius next week, the emphasis on change, innovation, community, the collective, matters of social justice, the internet, the future, and forward, progressive thinking that challenges the status quo, is set to become more heated, and will be a serious topic that weighs upon the collective consciousness in the times ahead. Evening time see’s the Moon enter communicative Gemini, which can see the emotions stirred up around communications. There can be a lot going on, a lot that needs to get done, or perhaps a lot to talk about, communications or errands to catch up on with/for neighbors, siblings, and the like. Something needs to be mended or resolved perhaps.
SUNDAY MAR 29.
Today see’s the Moon in talkative Gemini sextile the Sun and Chiron in Aries, square Mercury in Pisces, and trine Saturn in Aquarius. There is an emphasis here on healing a misunderstanding, or simply agreeing to disagree or letting something be “water under the bridge.” There could be some sensitivities or confusion around communications somehow, and perceptions can be a bit askew, with the potential for denialism, deception, or avoidance of reality. The lunar sextile to the Sun can help communicate, illuminate, or resolve awkward or difficult interpersonal misunderstandings. A lunar semi square to Pluto can heighten emotional intensity, so it pays to tread carefully in communications as people may really be taking things to heart right now and be more sensitive or going through more than you may assume on the surface. I feel like it’s just a good idea to keep that in mind in general right now, because these really aren’t normal times for anyone, and everyone is doing the best that they can. With the Moon square Mercury and Neptune in Pisces, semi square Pluto and Mars, and trine Juno in Libra, there’s a lot going on under the surface, or behind the scenes, and not everything is necessarily straight forward or as it may appear. For some, there could be unspoken animosity or hostility, fear, secrecy, fuckery, power tripping, confusion, evasive or deceptive action, or a bit of seething around something being said or done. For others, just… really mixed feelings about how to even handle something or someone. Positively, this energy also offers the opportunity to slink off somewhere for a jaunt to enjoy secret meet ups, or simply just nods of agreement, or affirming exchanges with others who happen to share your own particular brand of crazy(Moon trine Juno/square Mercury and Neptune/semisquare Pluto.) Seeing as how real life human interaction is basically crime, these maths are kind of reflecting that. Although there’s the potential for a lot of confusion in this Sundays math, there’s also the equal potential for bringing peace, unconditional love, and understanding, or in the very least, avoiding, evading, and ducking out of any potential conflicts and talking and engaging with others who share your sentiments.
