Going through some Facebook memories this morning, a friend (and now Patreon supporter) asked a few years ago: “Could you lay down some vernal equinox parameters for us? My ephemeris says March 21. My sweetie is a Pisces. So are a couple of our friends. Help?!” (edited slightly) What she meant here was the all of the friends that she mentioned have birthdays on March 21. But they all have the Sun in Pisces. So if the vernal equinox — the day the Sun enters Aries — is March 21, then how could they be Sun-sign Pisces? Crazy old books Read more…
Happy Spring! The Sun entered Aries just before midnight last night, beginning a new astrological year for the Northern Hemisphere. The Moon continues in brainy Aquarius today with no aspects. Mars conjoins Jupiter in Capricorn, bringing an abundance of focus to whatever we’re working on. Take advantage of the energy.
The Moon in intellectual Aquarius is fairly quiet today. The Sun sextiles Saturn, continuing the serious focus from the Moon’s overnight aspects. At 11:49pm, the Sun enters Aries, the Spring Equinox. Before daybreak tomorrow, the Moon squares Venus, emphasizing the unusual in beauty, art, and love.
The Moon conjoins Pluto in the late morning, indicating possible intensity of emotion. This evening, she’ll sextile the Sun and then conjoin Saturn, helping us to focus on responsibility and detail. At 9:15pm, Luna enters Aquarius, and just before dawn tomorrow squares Uranus, a great time to brainstorm and think way outside the box.
The Moon trine to Venus for the first part of the day gives a nice, earthy, sensual feel to the morning. For the rest of the day, Luna’s sextile to Neptune helps relax; just be careful about over-indulgence this evening. Before dawn tomorrow, the Moon will cross Mars and then just after, Jupiter. This could give a burst of energy and optimism.
The morning is average and then at 12:25pm the Moon enters Capricorn, where she tends to close in on herself and worry too much about what others think. She’ll sextile Mercury around the same time, so be careful not to overthink, especially if you’re down on yourself (or down on anyone else). Tonight Luna trines Uranus, adding a little spark, but with all the Earth energy, it shouldn’t shake things up too much.
The first part of the day benefits from the optimism of the Sagittarius Moon. By afternoon, things become much less clear as the Moon squares opium-like Neptune and then overnight Mercury re-enters Pisces after the retrograde, while the Moon squares the Sun to enter her last quarter. It’s not a great afternoon or evening for nailing down details.
At 7:09am, the Moon enters Sagittarius, giving the day a decidedly more uplifting, clearer feel than the last couple of days. The Sun sextiles Pluto around noon; look for reversals of how important things are. Big things may seems small today and small things big.
A super-active day as the Moon will contact Mars, Neptune, Jupiter, Sun, and Pluto by evening, and then Mercury and Saturn overnight. Varying pairs of aspects give the morning a feeling of conflict between getting it done and letting it go. And then a different pair of aspects give a similar feel to the afternoon/evening, with a different focus. All day through tomorrow Mars sextiles Neptune, again making us unsure of whether it’s time to act or to watch another episode of something.
By request of one of my Patreon supporters, this post will be bigger on the inside than on the outside. That’s right, this post is a T.A.R.D.I.S. Or at least, you’ll find Time Lords here. For those who are unfamiliar of Dr Who, the Doctor is a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey who travels in a spacecraft/time machine disguised as a blue British police call box (because the chameleon circuit is broken and it can no longer change its appearance). The T.A.R.D.I.S. (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space) is bigger on the inside than on the outside. The Doctor Read more…
