The Jupiter/Uranus/Pluto T-Square continues to be triggered by Mercury throughout the weekend causing a bit of friction and intensity leading us into the dynamic New Moon in Aries on Monday.
Friday (3/24): Mercury in Aries moves out of its square to Pluto to oppose retrograde Jupiter in Libra today, pitting the planet of communication and intellect against the “Great Benefic.” There may be instances today when our optimism can supersede logical thought causing us to jump headfirst into something before examining the facts. We may disregard the details and facts in favor of more grandiose ways of thinking. On the flip side, the rational mind puts a damper on your most expansive beliefs, especially in regards to finding balance in relationships and finances. We may become more prone to exaggeration, or we may lean too heavily on the opinions of others instead of focusing on our own self-interest and miss important opportunities as a result. Finding the middle ground between these two energies, we may utilize this transit to create more expansive and optimistic long-term plans that are rooted in logic and reason.
Saturday (3/25): The Sun in Aries comes into conjunction with retrograde Venus today, margining our vitality and consciousness with the planet of beauty, love, and sensuality. The energy of Venus is especially potent while in retrograde as it is closer in proximity to the earth, and in Aries she expresses herself in a way that can come across as aggressive and self-involved. The issue that is brought up through this transit is creative self-expression through our relationships. With Venus in retrograde, this may highlight where we’re feeling unlovable or unappreciated for our efforts in relationships. Now is a time when we may gain clarity about issues we’ve been harboring surrounding our own self-appreciation and self-worth. There may also be important developments in relationships and our finances at this time as we are apt to see things much more clearly under the illumination of the Sun.
Sunday (3/26): Mercury in Aries comes into conjunction with Uranus today merging the intellectual, rational mind with the planet of inspiration, innovation and chaos. This transit brings an interesting merging of the Higher and Lower mind as Uranus is said to be the “higher octave” of Mercury in astrology. Today is a day when we may unexpectedly receive divine inspiration, providing us with solutions to problems we’ve been stuck on for quite some time. Chaotic circumstances may come about to shake us out of a mental rut, breaking us out of maladaptive patterns of thinking and opening us up to new and exciting possibilities. This transit can be incredibly stimulating, leaving our minds and pulses racing if we fail to find a proper outlet for the energy. Today is an excellent day for problem solving, making changes to boring, outdated plans and routines, and communicating new, innovative ideas with friends and social networks.
