Monday, March 2. Buckle up. Even if you aren’t ready, this Monday is taking off without you. The Moon in Leo contacts all the fire planets (and there are a lot of them) by harmonious trines and one conjunction. Early in the morning (predawn CST) the Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius and then, while we get going in the morning, makes another trine to Mars in Aries. With Saturn’s discipline and Mars’ eagerness, we could get a lot accomplished early in the day. Later, the Moon trines Venus in Aries, creating an enjoyable spark in our interactions with others. Success in these interactions comes from appreciation of everyone’s individuality. We aren’t done however, Moon trines Uranus in Aries and comes into conjunction with Jupiter, triggering a big boost in our desires to bring about change. This desire carries over into tomorrow big time.
Tuesday, March 3. Be the change you want to see in the world, this quote popularly attributed to Mahatma Gandhi is the perfect way to embrace this day. Who we are matters. With Jupiter in Leo (since July 2014), we’ve been exposed to the importance of identity and impact. This Jupiter is very active this week and we will get to experience another level to the significance of identity. Today Jupiter makes a trine to Uranus in Aries. (Jupiter will do this again in June.) Jupiter is giving our revolutions a boost. Be creative, be yourself.
Wednesday, March 4. Although the Moon entering an earth sign today should make things calmer, it really doesn’t this time. Virgo energy is about integration and discernment. The fire transits today aren’t helping with this desire. You may notice the conflict in yourself too—wanting solid conclusions but too antsy to achieve them. Venus in Aries makes a trine to Jupiter in Leo and conjoins Uranus. The last three days have been a series of contacts with Jupiter and Uranus. We are itching to revolutionize something. Today’s Venus contacts increase the likelihood that women will be at the vanguard of these changes. Venus also makes a square to Pluto—we are seeing extreme commitment to change. Some of this is fueling violence, some of it is fueling creative ingenuity. In the midst of these transits, a whisper of tomorrow’s Full Moon threads through the day. The Moon squares Saturn and opposes Neptune reminding us of the transformations that Saturn square to Neptune will bring over the next year. Delusional fanaticism is the shadow side, self-sacrificing commitment to the wellbeing of all is the other. We have the choice of which side we will support.
March 5—Full Moon: Illuminating. Did you forget the Sun was in Pisces the last few days? If you are a fire sign, then probably you did. But if you happen to be a water sign, and especially a Pisces, then chances are the world has been going way to fast for you. This Full Moon is an opportunity to regroup and anchor into the Pisces season again. Pisces gives us all kinds of goodies, like: a chance to restore our souls, deeper understanding of our interconnections, artistic inspirations, and transcendent communing with Mystery. If we forgo the chance to slow down and tune into our deeper selves during this season, we could be missing an important component of emerging into Spring. How good are you at self care? This is a perfect moment to turn your thoughts to what you need to give yourself. I’ve recently been counseled to think of my daily practices as good maintenance of my wellbeing. Do a little bit everyday and we are less likely to need crisis intervention at some point when we’ve ignored ourselves for far too long. The Moon in Virgo opposing the Pisces Sun is a good ally for keeping to our everyday maintenance practices. At every Full Moon, the Moon offers the necessary counterpoint to the Sun’s instincts. The opposite signs where the Moon and Sun reside need each other. Pisces needs Virgo. The big fire energy of this Spring is not over, we benefit from listening to Virgo’s good sense to make sure we tend to our health and wellbeing during big change.
