Astrological Context, Week of March 2, 2022
(All times Eastern)
There’s a lot of action in the solar system this week. On Wednesday, the Sun sextiles Uranus, which can present gentle ways of looking at things from a new perspective, especially if they help with independence. Mercury conjoins Saturn in Aquarius the same day, where Saturn is ruler and Mercury feels quite at home. This brings a serious focus to life, and it’s a very good time to plan, construct, build, research, etc. It’s also a good time for business planning. We’ll feel these effects all week, but they will be most acute on the 2nd.
On Thursday, Mars and Venus both conjoin Pluto in Capricorn. This is likely to trigger all sorts of things that are related to the Venus retrograde cycle, since she turned retrograde a couple of months ago when she was very close to Pluto. Mars-Venus is War-Peace, among other things, and joining the god of the Underworld is sure to bring some intensity to just about everything right now. On a personal level, it may spark intense relationship issues, and perhaps inspire some new exploration, whether emotional, spiritual, and/or physical.
Venus and Mars are exactly conjunct again on Sunday. They are going to be together off and on for a while, and have already been close for a couple of weeks. This time, their interaction with Pluto (see above) is the most prominent. But we’ll also see all sorts of relationship issues and maybe some reorganization along the way.
The Sun and Jupiter come together in Pisces on Saturday, making this week a likely good time to ask for promotions or advancements. This aspect is not closely tied to the Mars/Venus/Pluto one, but it’s not too far off, either. So a reshuffling of responsibilities, obligations, and power structures is probably in the cards.
On Sunday, both Mars and Venus leave Capricorn and enter Aquarius. This should lighten the relationship mood a bit, and make the next few weeks a good time to focus on relationship communication and social interaction.
