FRI MAR 7
It would be great to report that yesterday’s nurturing and possibly euphoric shift by Jupiter into forward motion is clicking on all cylinders without interference. However, Venus, Saturn and Ceres attempt to crash the good-vibration party hosted by lofty Jove, King of the Gods. A Venus-Saturn parallel (1:09AM) can send a temporary chill moving through love and money matters while Venus square Ceres (11:20AM) is a reminder to stay as productive as possible in your favorite arts, crafts and hobbies. Brainstorms can lift your consciousness to a higher place as the Moon in Gemini forms a supportive, 60-degree connection with Uranus in Aries (4:01PM). Think up novel ways to promote important literary, publishing or educational endeavors that have been on the backburner and waiting for an infusion of confidence.
SAT MAR 8
Quarter Moon cycles might be considered the Rodney Dangerfield alignments in astrology as they don’t get much respect relative to their more famous kin – the New and Full Moon. This morning you can test the waters as a First Quarter Sun-Moon Phase clocks in at 5:28AM (energizing 18 degrees of Pisces and Gemini). With the solar and lunar orbs at a waxing angle of 90-degrees, it is smart to cut through apparent obstacles in your path and manage your business affairs with finesse. Blaming others for your own recent errors or failings is taboo. Fun, games, crafts and beloved hobbies capture the spotlight later on as a grand triangle in air signs stimulates your creative artistry. You can groove with this infrequent geometrical combination as the Moon in Gemini trines Mercury in Aquarius (12:20PM) and moves on to trine Mars in Libra (11:54PM). Nevertheless, decrease decision-making to the absolute minimum overnight as the Moon-Mars harmonious trine (11:54PM) begins a void lunar uncertainty zone that continues for a good portion of Sunday morning.
SUN MAR 9
Due to a void lunar cycle in Gemini that started last night, there is no reason to bolt out of the starting gate with alacrity early this morning. It is fine to wait until the Moon enters its natural abode of Cancer (6:34AM). Home and family themes rise to the surface. Clean-up campaigns are back in style. Make your kitchen and bath areas shine again. A wave of nostalgia can strike -- pointing you to explore the past by examining your ancestral tree. Experiment with grandma's old-world recipes for seafood chowder, corn muffins, and vegetable casseroles. Just like yesterday, a grand triangle develops due to the Moon's quick motion around the Earth as the lunar orb in watery Cancer trines Ceres in Scorpio (9:35AM) and Neptune in Pisces (5:47PM). Ratchet up your productivity in the fine and graphic arts, film, photography, music and dance. In between these flowing trine aspects, primary partnerships receive a highly supportive lift via a 60-degree tie from Venus in Aquarius to Juno in Aries (3:59PM).
MON MAR 10
This is one of those days when you want to take advantage of golden opportunities arriving in the first part of the day. The reason is that the Moon makes its monthly union with Jupiter (3:38AM). While this kind of conjunction happens thirteen times in a calendar year, the current one has a super-strong essence because Jupiter has just recently shifted from reverse to direct, and is holding an extra dose of good luck and mental exuberance. Utilize daily affirmations, mantras, and visualization exercises to energize a long-term agenda that will lead to worldly treasures. Take a time-out from stress and strain on the relationship front when the Moon in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn (9:17AM). Look into the merits of holistic healing and alternative medical treatments that have become part of the mainstream over the last few decades as the Moon trines Chiron (10:23AM). Watch out for shocks to the system and surprises coming out of left field as the Sun makes a contra-parallel to Uranus (4:33PM). Expecting the unexpected is one way to handle the often electrifying nature of Uranian alignments -- especially when the Sun is involved in the cosmic equation. If you feel a sudden urge to retire from the social scene, you are touching base with a frictional square between Mercury in Aquarius and Saturn in Scorpio (11:15PM). Don't let the shadowy tides of self-doubt and pessimism take hold of your psyche. Keep the faith!
