Astrological Context, Week of March 13, 2023
(All times Eastern)
Remember that these aspects (aside from entry into new signs) will be in effect a few days before and a few days after the exact dates listed here. So keep this in mind when reading the daily updates this week.
This week has a lot of active aspects and sign changes, so it’s likely to feel pretty busy and perhaps a bit off balance. Let’s start with all of the aspects having to do with Neptune. Neptune brings escapism, non-linearness, non-reality, anti-physical, deception, disillusionment, etc. This week is dominated by planets conjoining or aspecting him, so it’s probably not a great week for lots of reality based or physical work.
On Tuesday, Mars (energy and action) squares Neptune. On Wednesday, the Sun (reputation, advancement, profession) conjoins Neptune. Thursday, Mercury (communication, details, merchanting) conjoins Neptune, and on Friday, the Sun catches up to Mercury, just as they are separating from Neptune. More specifically, this can bring a week with feelings of indifference or ambivalence. We may be torn between getting it all done and being a couch potato. Mars and Neptune are the two planets that are connected to chemicals and poisons, so be careful of what you take in. Mercury is already struggling in Pisces for clarity, so communications are not the best now. But creativity could skyrocket now, so take advantage. Don’t ask for a raise now, and wait until next week to seek promotions or ask for favors from those more powerful. On the national and international scene, watch for deception, lies, and poisons.
In other plantary news, Venus squares pluto on Thursday, and then enters Taurus on Friday. This can spark some passion and even obsessive feelings until she comes home to her own sign (Taurus) for a few weeks. Then she’ll help with relationship, creativity, art and music.
There are a few other minor aspects, but they will probably be subsumed by all of this action.
On Sunday, Mercury moves out of non-linear, creative Pisces into sharp, penetrating Aries for a few weeks, turning our thoughts to more activity than creativity.
