This week rolls in like a wobbly, generally friendly lamb and roars out like a restless lion. This last weekend of winter begins in a friendly haze as the Sun and Mercury conjunct in intuitive, low energy Pisces and linger close to Neptune. The pace picks up at our brains sharpen as Mercury enters impatient Aries on Saturday night, and that impatient roar echoes on Wednesday’s new Moon in Aries. Larger astrological cycles nudge us to wrap up some last chapters and clear the decks for a new story.
Saturn, our symbol of stability, boundaries, and structure, left Saturn-ruled Aquarius last week and entered more ephemeral Pisces, and the banks began to falter. Boundaries get squishy, and suddenly Idaho pushes to take over parts of Oregon. Now Saturn in Pisces does not usually synchronize with bank failure but does call for adjustments. For the next two and a half years we need to calm down fears of dissolution (Pisces) , connect sustainable compassion (Pisces) with security, and dream up- and implement- some new ways forward.
But for this weekend, contact old friends, visit, catch up on stories and be sociable under an affable and convivial Aquarius moon. Get comfortable, enjoy good food, and rest up for the busy season ahead as cuddly, comfort loving Venus in Taurus forms a friendly sextile to Saturn, a planet that likes traditions, familiar things and people.
Look for potentially wild Saturday night, we may want a break from that familiar, or take a familiar conversation to a deeper and different level as mental Mercury enters the fresh fire sign Aries. It will further to find a good way to howl. That late winter haze thickens again on Sunday as the Moon enters less- energized Pisces.
Early in the week world events begin to stir, we get an infusion of energy and the stars asked us to shake out our priorities, blow away the dust, and get ready. Complete endings that create room for new beginnings, last year’s leaves falling as new leaves begin to push. Monday sends mixed signals as the waning Moon in Pisces keeps that mental haze going, but we can feel the tide turning as the Sun sextiles empowering Pluto then enters Aries at 3:24 PM MDT. We can feel that leap forward on Tuesday under the brash new Moon in Aries, impulse control lowers and action simmers.
On Monday the stars push us to sort our priorities, blow away the dust, and get ready for the new season, and potentially a new chapter in our life. As last year’s leaves fall off gray branches to create room for fresh buds, we need to wrap up unfinished business. Feel the tide turn next week, infusing energy, activity, and a contrary streak as the Sun enters Aries on Monday at 3:24 PM MDT, magnified further under the brash New Moon in Aries on Tuesday. Impulse control lowers and new action simmers.
On Thursday Pluto enters the fixed air sign Aquarius, which could be symbolized by people sitting in a circle, equals holding hands and working together. Pluto takes 247 years around the zodiac and last walked through Aquarius 1778–1797 as America constructed its constitution, an era for revolution to abolish monarchies and create democracies. Once again, we step into a few decades which could revolutionize how we collect, connect, educate and govern our world. Now we get a taste of the decades ahead, Pluto is only here for a few months, then bunny hops back and forth between Capricorn and Aquarius for another year.
Pluto in Aquarius calls us to make sure every voice is heard, every vote counted. But the wisdom of the people’s mind depends on what they know, what questions they ask, and how the heart and mind connect. Crowds can be dumb. We are responsible to ask those tough questions, to educate ourselves and others in order to help the Demos look deeper and keep minds and hearts connected.
Friday, March 17: The morning buzzes with activity, and then we really want to let go of the practicalities and socialize for St. Patrick’s Day as the Moon enters sociable Aquarius for the weekend. Reconnect with old friends, favorite books, traditions, and familiar joys as Venus sextile Saturn. Pick up some interactions where we left off last time. We want to know what we can count on as we go exploring.
