Week Ahead – Monday, March 5th through Sunday, March 11th

Happy Sunday everyone! Many of us are still feeling the effects of the big freeze here, and many are hoping for Spring to show its head soon. We do have the Spring Equinox coming up in a couple of weeks so, fingers crossed that Mother Nature takes wakes up soon. Today is a good one for spiritual activities, sharing our dreams, both dreams for the future and the dreams we had last night, with others. It’s also a good day for being social since we are under the influence of a Libra Moon. However, as we move into the evening, some of you may find you have a low tolerance for people who are being annoying. Now let’s take a look at what this week has in store for us.

Monday morning begins with a Void of Course Moon that will shift into brooding Scorpio by the mid-afternoon. Scorpio brings heightened emotional charge and sensitivity, and people tend to become more conscious of self and others and see everything in dark tones. It can also be a time for healing as we destroy the roots of a disturbance in our life. We crave deeper conversation, and we want to get to the root of issues. Learning what makes people tick is something we can be really drawn to. But be careful that you don’t start pushing buttons or try to force others to confront their own demons. One thing to avoid though are manipulative tactics, brooding, and suspiciousness. We tend to be more drawn towards the darker side of ourselves too under this sign. Done wisely, we can get to the source of issues and create the seeds of new transformation to happen.

Tuesday sees Mercury and Venus moving into Aries. Mercury will be in Aries until the middle of May, much longer than usual because of its upcoming retrograde cycle that starts on the 22nd. So, rather than our usual 3 weeks, we get Mercury in Aries for about 10 weeks. This does give us the time to improve things like our health regimes. You’ll find you have more of a “Just do it!” attitude and, where communication is concerned, we want to cut through the red tape and the mish-mosh to get to the point of things.  Venus will be in Aries until the end of this month, and its a good time for pioneering some new paths in both existing relationships and in our search for love. Venus isn’t very comfortable in Aries though, because Aries wants its independence. So we need to find a good balance between our individual needs and sharing needs.

Wednesday brings us a Void of Course Moon that will last until the latter part of the evening when it shifts into upbeat Sagittarius. This makes a great time for sharing our big ideas with enthusiasm, which could help get others on board with ideas and projects. We may find an increase in our interests in social life and where we fit in. We may also be inclined toward overdoing and overstating. We don’t want to plan ahead, and prefer to “wing it”. So, a bit of care is needed in these situations.

Thursday is the day that Mercury enters its Shadow. The Shadow is where Mercury will later go retrograde, about two and a half weeks from now. During Mercury’s retrograde cycle it travels through the same span of zodiac signs 3 times (the shadow). The first time Mercury passes through it is direct or moving forward. Then it appears to move backwards, or retrograde, before finally going direct again. We also have Jupiter going Retrograde today. or up to a week before and after this date (while Jupiter is moving very slowly and stopped during the station), you may experience an increase in idealism, longing or inspiration. It allows us to gain a new level of enlightenment because we can go deeper within ourselves. It’s a great time for improving ourselves and preparing for when Jupiter moves forward again, bringing bigger and better things our way. Friday is a quiet one in the skies for us.


Saturday has a Void of Course Moon in the wee hours of the morning before it shifts into Capricorn mid-morning. With the Moon in Capricorn, we become aware of the need for structure and planning ahead. We also instinctively are aware of the limitations of time. We are motivated by a desire for success. Achievement and manifestation are most important to us now. We are resourceful and don’t want to waste time, energy, or resources. This can be a very sober influence–even a depressing one. However, it can also be a productive time when we look reality in the face.

Sunday is Daylight Savings time for the U.S.A – so don’t forget to turn those clocks ahead an hour. Mercury will be square Saturn today, so getting from point A to point B can be a challenge during this transit due to obstacles and delays. Communications may be blocked or delayed, and negative thinking could dominate at this time causing feelings of irritation. The best advice is to stay focused yet listen carefully; important information is available. We have a trine between Mars and Uranus going on as well. The transits of Mars to planets and points in the natal chart are relatively brief influences, lasting approximately 2-3 days. Mars takes approx 2 years to travel 360 Degrees in the Zodiac and the twelve houses and acts to energize and activate the conditions surrounding the planets and points it touches. So, this will be a very high energy time, although not necessarily predictable or reliable. Lastly, we have a sextile between the Sun and Pluto going on today. Under this transit we can feel our sense of purpose grow stronger, allowing us to tap into the deeper levels of our energy stores and determination. We also gain the ability to be able to see below the surface of things. We may not be able to understand what it is we are seeing but we can often get to the core of unconscious patterns that need changing. Some of the insights we gain now may not bring about a “light bulb” moment until later down the line.
