monday march 13th-
there are no major aspects today.
tuesday march 14th-
at 2:09pm mercury in pisces semisquares the mean north node in taurus and sesquiquadrates the south node in scorpio, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the nodes of destiny and karma. pay attention to things you hear, think, say or receive as information/intuition/downloads. being able to take off the rose colored glasses and/or step back from emotional subjectivity is going to be key to seeing the Truth. as the north node is in taurus- pay attention to your body and its sensations for accurate assessments about what is really going on right now.
at 7:39pm mars in gemini squares neptune in pisces for the third and final time due to mars’ recent retrograde journey- bringing tension between the will, warrior and drive and the planet of illusion, idealism and fantasy. mars likes to assert himself and take a stand- while neptune likes to surrender. with mars in the air sign of gemini we want to be super aware of our communications to make sure we are being above board and honest and equally so making sure we are being discerning about the information or communications we receive for others. the best use of this energy is to activate your spiritual warrior, but the shadow side can manifest as impotency, infidelity, laziness, addiction and/or deception. it is very important to be clear and in integrity with others- or it will cost you. as this is the last square with mars exiting back end shadow tomorrow- connect the dots to the last 2 squares on 10/12 and 11/19 to see the unfolding storyline and what is trying to resolve right now. the sun and mercury are about to trigger the mars/neptune square so pay close attention to what is happening 3/14-3/17 as there can be big things up personally and collectively that need to be tended to.

wednesday march 15th-
today mars moves out of back end shadow- ending his 6 1/2 month journey including his front end shadow, retrograde stations and backend shadow. mars is *almost* done making all the aspects he makes for a total of 3 times- there is just one more to make but it occurs after he exits his shadow. on 3/30 mars in cancer will trine saturn in pisces- both in new signs and covering new ground that moves past the retrograde journey territory. all the Underworld journeying and going over the past is done now- and it is time to move on or move forward. pay attention to where energies are shifting and opening in your life right now. come 3/30 with the mars/saturn trine it will be time to take conscious action to set things into motion that have the potential to grow for a long time to come!
at 3:46pm saturn in pisces semisquares vesta in aries, creating tension between the Lord of Karma and the Priestess asteroid Goddess. last week we had jupiter/chiron conjunct vesta- and today we have both saturn and uranus aspect vesta as well. there is a powerful portal right now that can focus our energies, wills and drives in potent ways. saturn brings reality checks- asking us to make sure we are grounded and seeing reality. finding the right balance between dreams/vision and then taking conscious action to bring them into manifestation is key!
the sun cojoins neptune at 25’06 pisces at 7:39pm- aligning the conscious self and ego with the planet that dissolves ego boundaries. this is great for mysticism, creativity, intuition and spirituality- but we do need to be aware of illusion, delusion, deception, confusion and checking out. we have the sun triggering the recent mars/neptune square today through tomorrow- so pay attention to any confusion, delusion, deception or avoidance of reality going on and be willing to see through it to get to the Truth!
at 9:57pm uranus in taurus semisextiles vesta in aries- linking the Rebel and Revolutionary with the Priestess asteroid Goddess of devotion and focus. this is a time to focus on our evolution and be devoted to change! uranus in taurus is helping to awaken the feminine and change our values so they are more in alignment with abundance and earth consciousness. vesta in aries is the warrior Goddess ready to take a stand for what she believes in. use this energy to activate and motivate yourself to embrace and BE the change you wish to see in the world!
thursday march 16th-
at 1:13pm mercury cojoins neptune 25’08 pisces- linking the linear logical mind with the intuitive, imaginative planet. the energy right now can be deeply psychic, mystical, imaginative, intuitive and creative. this is a great time study the occult and the mysteries and open up to hearing messages from Source! yet the shadow of this aspect is that it can be really hard to discern fact from fantasy and Truth from illusion. it’s easy to deceive ourselves, deceive others and believe our own lies! be discerning and be willing to question what is on the surface right now. don’t just pay attention to words- pay attention to actions. also pay attention to your dreams, fantasies and illusions. be willing to pull back the veil and see yourself, others and the world around you more clearly. do this in yourself, in your life and relationships but also in regards to the media, in politics, in the spiritual community and more. yes even in spiritual circles this can manifest and it can be even more subtle and pervasive as it can spun as in spiritual terms and make you think you are being evolved to think or believe in such things!!! please note mercury is triggering the mars/neptune square from today through tomorrow!
the sun in pisces squares mars in gemini at 2:09pm, creating tension and friction between the two masculine yang planets. the sun is in a sign that prefers to dissolve and surrender, while mars is the planet of speaking up and fighting. with mars in gemini communication can be intense and combative. watch out for denial or trying to avoid saying or listening to what needs to be said or heard. the desire to escape is strong – make sure you are not trying to escape seeing and dealing with reality.
at 3:58pm venus at 29’52 aries squares pluto at 29’52 capricorn- creating tension and friction between the Goddess of Love and beauty and the Lord of the Underworld. venus/pluto can bring up shadow and intensity in relationships and finances. stuff we are not looking at or do not want to see can arise right now. this is great for excavation, therapy and shadow work. just steer clear of power/control dynamics, jealousy, obsession, possessiveness and paranoia! from 3/11 to today venus triggered the separating pluto/eris square- amplifying the tendency to bring up shadow, forcing us to bring things into the Light of consciousness. the pot is getting stirred- in relationships, finances, values and self-worth. channel the firey energy wisely!
venus moves out of aries and into taurus at 6:34pm- moving from mars rulership to her own rulership where she is much more comfortable! this shifts the Goddess from yang to yin, assertive to receptive, independent to interconnected and relational! the coming weeks of venus in taurus’ journey are a time to enjoy the sensual, physical world. venus in taurus oozes abundance, sensuality, softness, pleasure and connection. it’s a great time to find more stability, solidity and security both financially and in relationships. just watch out for the shadow side of venus in taurus: being too self indulgent, entitled, lazy and resistant to change.
friday march 17th-
at 12:48am mercury in pisces squares mars in gemini- creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Will, Warrior and drive. mercury/mars can be feisty and firey- and even combative, aggressive and argumentative…so watch out. shadow mercury in pisces is dreamy and ungrounded- while mars in gemini is intellectually dominating and has to be right! we need a balance between intuition and intellect, between feminine principles and masculine principles. be aware and take a pause before you react today so you can instead respond. this completes mercury’s trigger of the mars/neptune square that has been unfolding 3/14 to today.
at 6:44am the sun cojoins mercury at 26’34 pisces- aligning the conscious self and ego with the conscious mind and intellect. typically sun/mercury aspects are great for communication, information coming in, realizations and revelations. yet both the sun and mercury have been triggering the separating mars/neptune square (exact on 3/14) in the last few days- which can amplify the confusion, illusion, deception, dishonesty and escapism energy present. learning to see clearly and not just see the words being said but also see the energy behind things is important right now. seeing beyond the veil of illusion is key- first within ourselves and what we are not seeing clearly within, but also without in relationship, the media and the world at large.
venus in taurus sextiles saturn in pisces at 6:25pm, making the first aspect of a planet to saturn in his new home sign of pisces! with the Goddess of Love and beauty in one of her signs of rulership – we have some amazing astrology for solidifying commitments, deepening relationships and getting super clear on our values and what is important for us as we move forward relationally and financially. this is also great for bridging dreams and visions with reality and what needs to be done to bring them into manifestation. build something that lasts today!
from 6:34pm to 11:14pm venus in taurus, saturn in pisces and uranus in taurus all tensely aspect retrograde ceres in the first degrees of libra (venus and saturn form a yod or finger of God/Goddess, uranus sesquiquadrates ceres)- bringing focus to home, family, roots, foundations and committed relationships of all kinds. if we are keeping the peace in relationships for financial security or because of our fear of the unknown – this can be rock the boat astrology that brings up and out what was swept under the carpet. finding the right balance between security and letting go of what feels secure but is actually blocking growth and change is key.

at 11:24pm mercury at 29’55 pisces sextiles pluto at 29’55 capricorn- linking the mind and intellect with the Lord of the Underworld. this is great for deep thinking, therapy, research and investigation. mercury as psychopomp has access to the Underworld and is able to go down there and retrieve insights and bring them back up for conscious reflection and integration. communication can be deep and insightful today!
sunday march 19th-
at 12:24am mercury moves out of pisces and into aries- shifting the mind and intellect from the last sign of the zodiac to the first sign of the zodiac- from the omega to the alpha. mercury in aries is fiery, direct, action oriented and ready to speak his Truth! he can also be overly self focused in communication, angry, aggressive and combative. finding ways to speak and express that are balance is recommended 🙂
mercury in aries opposes retrograde ceres in libra at 10:20am- bringing focus to our needs for safety, security, balance and harmony in our personal and collective relationships. we have the polarity of the self and other, me and we, take and give, masculine and feminine highlighted yet again. we are each being asked to address which side of the spectrum we tend to default in and which side of the spectrum our growth and evolution is tied up with. the key is to look at which one is HARDER for you- as the one that is easy is NOT the one you need to work on or strengthen. if you are really good at focusing on others- then right now you need to focus on yourself. if you are really good at doing your own thing and thinking about your own needs- then right now you need to focus on/think about others. each person’s journey is unique and only you will know where your growth is. do an honest self check-in and make sure your ego is not answering for you! opportunities for profound growth and shift are present right now- but it’s up to you to take the leap and grow!
at 2:31pm chiron in aries squares pallas athena in cancer- creating tension between the Wounded Healer and the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. chiron has been squaring pallas since his first square on october 8th 2022 with his 2nd square on january 28th 2023). today is the last square- just a few days before pluto moves into Aquarius!!! chiron is in the sign of mars and pallas is both the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess- so there can be focus on war, aggression, arguments, combative energy and intense emotions right now. pallas is in cancer so the desire to fight or stand up for family, children and/or country is strong. yet emotions can also be trigger happy and if we act from our wounding instead of our wholeness we can find ourselves creating more trauma and emotional wounding right now. be aware and navigate with care! also pay attention to your dreams upon waking for important messages from the Unconscious about where your deepest healing is wanting to be realized.
mercury in aries semisquares uranus in taurus at 3:15pm, bringing tension between the lower mind and Higher Mind in radical and perhaps unexpected ways! mercury is ready to speak up and take action and uranus is disrupting what once felt stable and secure. positively new visions and inspiration can be incoming!!! we just want to be aware that mercury in aries is fiery and can be argumentative- so watch out for burning bridges right now.
at 6:06pm jupiter in aries semisextiles uranus in taurus, harmoniously aligning two of the most independent and action oriented planets in our solar system! this semisexitle is the last waning aspect of the previous jupiter/uranus cycle that began in 2010/2011 (there were 3 conjunctions from june 2010 to january 2011- at 0’17 aries, 28’42 pisces and 27’02 pisces respectively). the waning semisextile is like the dark moon in the lunar cycle- bringing a cycle to completion. our next jupiter/uranus cycle is seeded by one conjunction on april 20th, 2024 at 21’49 taurus. so from now until then we are ending and completing an old cycle. jupiter/uranus cycles link the Greater Benefic and planet of expansion as well as excess with the Rebel and Revolutionary and planet of technology, change, upheaval and rebellion. interestingly the triple conjunctions in 2010/2011 were a precursor to the fukushima tsunami and nuclear meltdown that happened on march 11, 2011- which we just had the 12 year anniversary of last week. jupiter/uranus can be amazing for new ideas, visions, technology and innovations being brought into the world- but they can also exacerbate the uranian energies of chaos, upheaval, and sudden or unexpected change. taking a lot at longer cycles like this can be insightful as they are seeding points (the conjunctions) and ending points (the waning semisextile) and as the hermetic maxim tells us ‘as you start, so shall you finish- and as you finish, so shall you start’. in truth the ending points and the beginning points actually inform the whole cycle. now is a time to get super focused on endings and completion and do the work to end an old cycle consciously- so the baggage of the past does not have to come with us into the future. as this is a waning aspect that is akin to the dark moon- pay attention to dreams, intuitions and inspiration incoming right now about what needs to change and where the metaphoric 11th hour has arrived. this is particularly important environmentally.
have a blessed week…
