MARCH 10 to 20, 2016
THURSDAY-FRIDAY MARCH 10/11, 2016
On Thursday and Friday your mind shifts into visionary mode when Mercury aligns with Neptune in dreamy Pisces. Pay special attention to your dreams ... and that includes day dreams.
SATURDAY-SUNDAY MARCH 12/13, 2016
The weekend is dominated by thoughts of love as romanticVenus leaves emotionally cold Aquarius and dives into the romantic depths of Pisces. This sign change marks a major change not only in love but also in finances. Pisces Venus is not only loving and compassionate but also creative and generous. The motto for the next four weeks is: "Give, and you shall receive!" Pisces Venus is super-compassionate and over-generous. For the next month you may find yourself obsessed with spirituality and consumed with compassionate charity for others. On the negative side, common-sense practicality may be hard to muster.
MONDAY MARCH 14, 2016
On Monday the work week gets off to a contentious start when Mercury squares off against Saturn and Venus and Mars are in a 90-degree right angle to each other, causing chaos in love relationships. This is the astrological textbook recipe for a relationship in which tempers are always hot, the sex is always hot, passions are always hot and in which you are fighting violently with each other one moment — and then violently having sex the next moment. Just saying.
TUESDAY MARCH 15, 2016
On Tuesday Mercury is in opposition to Jupiter even as Mercury and Pluto form a sextile aspect which facilitates negotiations with authority figures such as your boss. At last, you can expect answers to some questions which have been plaguing you for the longest time. It may take a little digging, but Mercury sextile Pluto mean that the answer will be found. We also we come to the Gemini First Quarter moon ... the lunar phase we call the JACKAL MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Jackal in Antinous oracular arts is the embodiment of cunning and skill and sleight-of-hand and being slightly dodgy and sneaky but also being incredibly adept and learned in the ways of the world. The Gemini First Quarter Moon is the March moon of the Trickster, who taunts and teases, who plays tricks, who leads the soul through dark and treacherous passages ... who is more treacherous than any Underworld foe ... but whose cunning enables him to bring his charges to their goal. Meditations and rituals carried out tonight are best suited for looking beyond the the veil of lies and deceit that others (or we ourselves) throw over our eyes to prevent us from seeing clearly. This is also a very good night for finding canny and cunning solutions to difficult problems ... strategies for out-smarting those who seek to pull the wool over our eyes.
WEDS.-FRIDAY MARCH 16-18, 2016
The latter half of this week is dominated by two powerful configurations. First, the good news: Lucky Jupiter and career-minded Pluto form a trine aspect which is highly conducive for prosperity ... ordinarily. Now the not-so-good news: You may feel paralyzed between optimism and pessimism when Jupiter forms a 90-degree square angle aspect to Saturn which dominates the second half of the week. This is a textbook case of finding fortune in misfortune. You may find that a project you have been counting on to succeed suddenly backfires ... but that this apparent "failure" turns out to be a blessing in disguise. Jupiter-square-Saturn also often suggests that you yourself become the blessing in disguise for other people. While expecting good fortune for yourself, you suddenly find yourself in the position of helping others ... which is a blessing-in-disguise for you yourself.
SAT.-SUNDAY MARCH 19-20, 2016
This weekend energy levels get a boost when the Sun enters Aries for the Equinox ... first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and first day of autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. The Equinox is the start of the astrological new year. This is the first day of Spring for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of Autumn for our brothers in the Southern Hemisphere. Either way, this EQUINOX is the traditional starting gun for new starts and new projects. This is also one of the most romantic weekends of the year because love goddess Venus and emotionally deep Neptune align in conjunction in dreamy Pisces. Passion and compassion are the bywords — but watch out for over-indulgence in Neptunian party drugs and alcohol.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between March 21 and 27 when we come to the "Pink Moon" (or "Blood Moon") &mdash a spectacular Lunar Eclipse which will be visible from North America across the Pacific to New Zealand and Australia as well as parts of Asia ... With the Sun in Aries and the Moon in Libra, this is the Libra Full Moon ... Libra Full Moon ... the lunar cycle we call the ORATOR MOON of diplomacy and balanced thinking. This is the perfect time for fulfilling dreams of finding just the right partner, the person who balances out your needs and desires perfectly. But remember that diplomacy is the key. Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Orator Moon is the embodiment of articulate expression in all forms and in all media, whether spoken, written or visual .... More details next time ....
