With the Dark Moon energy fully underway, the main event this weekend is the mystical and transcendent influence of Saturday’s powerful New Moon in Pisces! At the end degrees of the last sign in the zodiac, this New Moon is all about clearing away the old to make way for the Springtime rebirth, which takes place at the Vernal Equinox on Tuesday of next week! This New Moon brings a super-psychic, other-dimensional connection for those who are inclined to explore, and ushers us into a brief, albeit powerful period of surrender and clearing away of past Karma. Get ready to turn inward this weekend, because next week Mother Earth and all of her children will begin to be reborn. ;)
Friday (3/16): No major planetary aspects. The Moon is dark in Pisces, forcing us to dive deep today with a transcendent and mystical conjunction to Neptune followed by a supportive sextile to Pluto in Capricorn, enhancing psychic impressions and inner sight. The Moon closes out the day with a beautiful trine to Jupiter in Scorpio at 11:11pm MST, bringing many intuitive and creative gifts in the most magical ways.
Saturday (3/17): Today Mars finally leaves it’s aggressively self-righteous position in the sign of Sagittarius into the responsible and pragmatic sign of Capricorn (a very welcomed change for anyone with a lot of mutable energy, e.g. Sun/Moon/Rising in Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces). Mars tends to do quite well in Capricorn, and allows us to express anger, aggression and acts of will in ways that are much more calm, responsible and down-to-earth. The danger here is in repressing our more intense, passionate, and aggressive impulses and emotions, as this can cause us to bottle things up only to release the energy later on in a way that is entirely inappropriate and untimely. This transit, lasting until May 15th, is excellent for disciplined activity and diligently working toward our long-term goals. Work-a-holics may love the energy brought on by this influence, as it allows us to work longer hours with more sustained energy to follow through with important projects. Again, there is always a downside to this in that those who are prone to overworking themselves may be much harder on themselves over these next couple of months, not allowing themselves adequate time for rest. Burnout is more prevalent at this time, especially for the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) and Mars-in-Cancer individuals in particular should aim to go easy on themselves throughout the duration of this transit.
The mystical, magical New Moon in Pisces comes exact early this morning at 6:11am MST before going Void-of-Course until early this afternoon. At the end degrees of the last sign in the zodiac, this New Moon is all about clearing away the old to make way for the Springtime rebirth, which takes place at the Vernal Equinox on Tuesday of next week! This New Moon brings a super-psychic, other-dimensional connection for those who are inclined to explore, and ushers us into a brief, albeit powerful period of surrender and clearing away of past Karma. This is a powerful period of endings, bringing a final chance to let go of old, unconscious patterns of thought, feeling and behavior that prevent us from moving forward wholeheartedly into a new, stronger and more willful way of being. With a conjunction to Chiron and a square to Mars in the mix, this process is likely to be quite intense, requiring us to dive deep into exploring and healing through old wounds and feelings of shame, guilt and vulnerability that have stuck with us for quite some time. This New Moon is one of deep healing, surrender, and internal transformation—a powerful energy bringing both inner turmoil and significant potential for self-understanding and personal growth.
The Moon changes gears quite quickly, moving into the fiery and ambitious sign of Aries at 11:57am MST, with the Sun following suit early next week.
Sunday (3/18): No major planetary aspects. The Moon is transiting Aries throughout the day today, making a conjunction to Venus and a square to Saturn, revisiting the energy of the Venus/Saturn square that came exact on Tuesday.
The moon in fiery, passionate Aries feels electrifying! The moon’s transit through this cardinal sign marks the perfect time for a fresh start. This is an excellent placement for initiating new projects or exercise regimes. During this transit, people are more apt to focus on themselves and their own emotional needs rather than the needs and desires of those around them. The moon in Aries creates opportunity to act on your own passions and self-interests, but don’t expect others to have the same passion for a project as you do. People may become more active, impulsive and temperamental during this time. There may be a greater desire for physical activity, and remaining sedentary may lead to emotional outbursts due to frustration. Taking action, whatever that means for you, best uses the energy of moon in Aries.
