In the Stars March 3-10, 2019…shining light on the astrology of the week

With the Sun in Pisces, we attune to its symbolism: beauty, inspiration, spirituality, creativity, and compassion.  Uplift your life with an elegant dinner at a restaurant on the water, playing music, or attending a poetry reading.  Mercury turns retrograde on March 5th, so tie up loose ends and make travel plans before Tuesday.

On Sunday we are goaded by a Mars-Moon square, best used for exercise and movement. Take a hike with a friend. Get moving!

On Monday Jupiter aligns with the Moon in a benefic sextile, blessing us. Our work week will be off to an optimistic start.

Mercury turns retrograde for a three-week backwards spin on Tuesday at the last degree of Pisces, the last of the zodiacal cycle. It is time to rview, re-imagine, and re-vision. The Moon is dark, signaling a time to turn inward to prepare for the next lunar cycle.

Wednesday holds a symphony of planetary energy. The most major shift is Uranus into Taurus for a seven-year stay in the fixed earth sign. Uranus is a game changer, ready to plow the soil for the seeding of new resources, values, and plans. The New Moon in Pisces is conjunct Neptune, oozing with intuition, inspiration, and vision. This New Moon/Neptune conjunction makes benefic sextiles to Mars, Pluto, and Saturn, meaning that vision and inspiration can be turned into action and realization.

Our dream state may linger through Thursday morning, and then after a brief mid-day void Moon (11:08 a.m.-12:27 p.m. PST) the Moon bounces into Aries and begins a new cycle. With the Moon in Aries, it’s time to get started on some things awaiting attention.

Friday is a satisfying end to the work week. The morning is sweet, and we may want to celebrate by buying coffee for our co-workers, or allowing ourselves to indulge in a pastry. This would be a good morning to do a random act of kindness. A Sun-Saturn sextile leads us to accomplish a lot of work with ease.

Saturday morning may deliver a rough ride with the Moon in a challenging square to Saturn and Pluto, though the challenges are mitigated by a Moon-Jupiter trine which gives trust and optimism. The Moon is void of course for a long period of time from 9:14 a.m. through 11:10 p.m. PST. In addition, Mercury is retrograde. This is not a day for shopping, or anything requiring decisions and connection. Focus on routine tasks or cleaning up your winter garden.

Sunday and Monday are colored by an exalted Taurus Moon. All things sensual are highlighted – things that please the ears, eyes, taste buds, and touch. A benefic Mars-Neptune sextile, exact on Sunday, encourages philanthropy. Spring your clocks forward one hour to shift into Daylight Savings Time. Do a charitable act, giving gifts of time, talent, or money.

Monday is an inspiring, energetic, engaged productive day. Make the most of this day of opportunistic energies.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.
