Happy Sunday and Ostara Blessings all! Here we are at the official first day of spring, which started yesterday for those in the USA. Time to get the lawn mowers and garden equipment out, check on any seedlings we planted indoors that will soon be ready to go outside and start bringing out the garden furniture! Its also the solar return for all of you Aries folks. We have a nice alignment between Venus and Neptune happening today, a combination that is supportive of creativity, romance and the divine feminine. The Moon will be moving into Virgo this afternoon, so we may feel like focusing on practical stuff as we get ready for the coming work week. Let’s see what is in store for us…

Our Monday starts off quiet but still has that Virgo Moon energy to work with, and work you will be! The next two days are great for accomplishing practical goals and doing some hard work. On Tuesday Mercury will be joining the Sun in Aries, where it will remain until the first week of April. This is a great time to benefit from exploring new opportunities and new methods of doing things. However, be careful to avoid making impulsive comments or impatience. Aries can make Mercury somewhat direct in communication and we develop a “Just do it!” attitude. We aren’t interested in the small details or storytelling of conversations. We just want people to get to the point. This transit does help us find the courage and words necessary to express ourselves though, which is good for those who struggle in this area.

On Wednesday the Moon moves into balancing Libra for our Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse. So we have this Libra/Aries mix going on that can make a person feel a bit pulled in two directions. Libra wants relationships but Aries just wants its independence. So this Lunar Eclipse will be about re-balancing between how much of ourselves we share vs. our own needs. We also have a challenging square between Jupiter and Saturn today It’s an aspect that shows it is time to evaluate our development since 5 years ago, 10 years ago, and 15 years ago. You may asking yourself “What development?” and 5 years may seem like a long time to think back and compare to what is happening in the present day. Think back to any ending of hopes and dreams that cleared the way for new ones to grow. These may now be taking shape you. Or some of you may have experienced the manifestation of those hopes and dreams, which would have required a bit of re-orientating one’s direction and actions in order to apply what has been building up. This is the time to look as the results of those experiences. Lastly, we have a conjunction between the Sun and Mercury, an energy that compels us to communicate in all forms. Some may find it hard to rest or quiet their minds at this time.

Thursday brings a trine between Mercury and Mars, a transit that supports philosophical conversations. This transit also has a physical aspect that makes us want to be active too. Its a good time for learning something new and honing our skills. The Moon will be Void of Course as we get into the later evening.

Friday sees Saturn starting its Retrograde cycle, which will last until early August. For up to a week prior and after today we may find that our physical and emotional energy is feeling somewhat heavy, stuck, serious or sad. We can sometimes feel held back by circumstances or pressured by people or situations involving structure, rules, authority figures, expectations and responsibilities. Over these next 4 months we will find that our goals and ambitions could benefit from some development and planning on a deeper level. Its a good time for refining and reworking our goals in order to determine how we can achieve them. The Moon will be in Scorpio later this evening, bringing intensity to the emotions. It can give us a bit of a boost to get to the core of any issues that have been bugging us though. We’re not done yet! Venus and Jupiter are in an opposition, bringing challenges to our relationships when expectations become a bit overblown. Venus will also be square Saturn, making it feel difficult to relate to others. Try not to take a person’s coolness in attitude to heart right now though.

Saturday brings a brief Sun trine Mars transit that boosts our ability to assert ourselves and will make us want to rise early and get the day going. Add to this is a sextile between Mercury and Pluto, fuelling our communication with passion and sharpening our intuition in such a way, as to feel out what others may be thinking. Sunday starts with a Void of Course, and it is the UK’s day to turn those clocks ahead one hour for Daylight Savings! Sunday may have some feeling a bit lethargic today, so Sunday makes a good one for just relaxing and recharging our internal batteries.
