At the threshold of change – standing with open palms praying for the blooms of Spring to delight us with golden utopia. A vast horizon of possible futures emerging from the slumber of corrupted Kings as their ancient castles crumble. Power and Faith align via seismic fault pushing strength out of nature creating new landscapes to cultivate. Fresh soil ready for the season of becoming – green visions aligned with the Wheel of Fate. The medicine is strong – adding honey over saturating with sweetness. A cacophony of healing invocations reverberates through the wires in anxious unison of fantastical talents. The mirror casts a grandiose reflection of mystical grandeur which serves as a muse for the unemployed confusion. The central hearth burns with everlasting creation flames licking dragoness producing wonders and new forms while the cycles of Necessity dances in the shadows.
The week opens with the last quarter Moon in Sagittarius creating a crossroad and a time of decisions. What was realized or initiated at the New Moon in Pisces on February 23rd, and more extensively during Mercury retrograde is now fully emerging. This is a powerful time as we can see reflected in the collective and this week is no exception.
The big astrological events this week are: Mercury re-entering Pisces early Monday morning after its retrograde – The Sun entering Aries on Thursday signalling the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere -A powerful Mars/Jupiter conjunction in the sign of Capricorn on Friday – Saturn entering Aquarius on Saturday hinting at a new chapter which will officially begin in December, and finally a gorgeous sextile between Venus in Taurus and the Moon/Neptune in Pisces closing the weekend next Sunday, March 22nd.
CAPRICORN MOON: STABILISING STRUCTURES
The Moon enters Capricorn mid-day on Monday which brings attention back to our present obligations and responsibilities. The Moon transiting in the Earth sign of Capricorn until Wednesday evening carries a stoic, practical, and somewhat fearful lens on current situations.
The Moon in Capricorn trines Venus in Taurus Tuesday afternoon brings positive solutions to logistical issues. With the emphasis of planets in Earth signs at the moment, the focus is on assets, money, and how to provide, and maintain cash flow. Capricorn and Taurus are two signs concerned with material comfort, stability, and the tangible. There is plenty of backup and motivation at the moment to stabilize our realities, and adapt to the changing tides.
Wednesday, the Moon in Capricorn conjoins Mars, Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn before entering Aquarius late Wednesday evening. In Astrology, the Moon sometimes serves as a magnifying glass or a translator of other planetary aspects. The Moon meeting the stellium of heavy-duty players in Capricorn could serve to augment our awareness of current crumbling structures. Change is of course the only constant. We must move through this time with flexibility, awareness, and the willingness to adapt to changing circumstances.
On Thursday March 19th, the Sun at 29 degrees of Pisces sextile Saturn at 29 degrees of Capricorn. We could be extremely aware of the implications of the change currently taking place. The Sun in the very last degree of the Zodiac while Saturn is in the very last degree of Capricorn foretells of this powerful threshold we are currently crossing collectively, and the lessons being integrated at this time thanks to Saturn.
The Sun enters Aries (23:49 EDT) signalling the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Mars applies to a conjunction with Jupiter in Capricorn at the time of the Equinox while Uranus in Taurus sextile the Nodes of the Moon. There is confidence, initiative, and faith amidst the very real changing circumstances. We are forced to plan for the long-term, and think strategically at this time.
On Friday, the Moon continues to travel through the sign of Aquarius as if preparing the ground for Saturn about to enter Aquarius on Saturday. The Moon will be void of course all day after a square to Venus in Taurus (5am EDT). Things could feel in suspense, and it could be hard to know the outcome of our current predicaments. However, with Mars and Jupiter’s conjunction becoming exact on Friday, the desire to move forward and the energy to do so is available. It’s a good time to stay busy with projects and be proactive.
SATURN ENTERS AQUARIUS – MOON IN PISCES – WEEKEND
The weekend continues to surprise. The Moon enters Pisces early Saturday morning meeting Mercury which is sextile Uranus in Taurus; an aspect that was exact at the beginning of February just before Mercury stationed retrograde.
We might find the answers for things that were left in suspense in the last month and a half. We might be asked to retrace our step to get to the origin of a story. Things that began around the first week of February are now being clarified perhaps creating more confusion. The Moon in Pisces with Mercury could muddle and diffuse information creating more anxiety. It could be hard to know what the truth really is.
Saturn enters Aquarius late Saturday evening/early Sunday morning depending on where you live. Saturn will be in Aquarius until it stations retrograde and moves back into Capricorn at the beginning of July. Saturn will officially enter Aquarius at the end of 2020 and will transit in the sign of the Water Bearer until 2023. If you know your Astrology, then you know that Saturn leaves no one indifferent. For the next three and a half months we will have an opportunity to glimpse at the upcoming themes that Saturn in Aquarius will undoubtedly bring up when it officially enters Aquarius at the end of the year.
Finally, Sunday carries a luxurious glow while the Moon conjoins Neptune in Pisces and sextile Venus in Taurus. Venus currently at home in the sign of Taurus shows that charm, inspiration, and pleasures are readily available. The Moon and Neptune in Pisces aspecting Venus in Taurus on Sunday promises a day filled with fantasy and longing which should be utilize for art, music, beauty, romance and all creative pleasures, and projects. Even though we are at the mercy of powerful change, beauty and love is readily available.
