Happy Sunday everyone, and Happy Mothering Sunday to all of you Mum’s in the UK. It’s also Daylight Savings in the U.S.A today, so remember to move those clocks ahead an hour. It looks like we are finally coming out of our deep freeze and heading slowly into Spring. Time to prepare for the big spring clean that many of us do each year, as we throw off the darker days of winter and open the doors to new energies. Many of you may have felt your sleep was disrupted as you wake today, not just from the time change, but because <ars and Uranus are creating a trine. making us want to get up and so stuff out of our normal routine. This will continue into the next few days of this week. Let’s see what else the week has in store for us.

Monday afternoon brings us a Void of Course Moon that will move into Aquarius in the late evening. This eccentric energy wants us to explore new and different things and have us take a day off from our usual routine. The Moon in Aquarius can bring blessed relief from too much emoting. It allows us the distance to see the big picture. The mood takes us down tangents of thought or brings exciting flash ideas. It’s a great time for tuning into the collective currents. It favors social networking via the net or experimenting with other technologies that keep you connected. It’s time for embracing the new, the futuristic and innovative.

Tuesday brings us a square between Venus and Saturn, where we may see difficulties relating to others. People may appear cool with their affections and emotionally distant.It’s a time to avoid new financial undertakings, as they may prove to be “money pits” as time passes. There may be anxiety or troubles with regards to matters concerned with the feelings. Romantic disappointments, unrequited love, separations, and broken engagements are the more negative manifestations. Try not to read too much into situations, particularly social and romantic circumstances. This transit is best used for reflection. We also have a trine between the Sun and Jupiter, a supportive aspect that the ancients considered a positive one. With the Sun and Jupiter working together we are able to work in harmony with our environment radiating warmth and generosity to those around us.

Wednesday brings us a challenging square between warrior planet Mars and the wounded healer Chiron. This is a time where we need to confront the issues in our lives that involve why and how we tend to get hurt by others, how we hurt others, and how healing can now take place in either of these scenarios. Our awareness of this can be due to a conflict in our life, but this can also be a very valuable learning experience for us, more so than usual. Part of the issue can be down to a need to tread our own path but we are avoiding doing so for whatever reason, possibly because circumstances are compelling us to satisfy the expectations of others, or because we are still struggling to muster up the courage to discover and walk our own path. Whatever our reasons, this transit can give us the push we need to help steer us in a direction of healing, possibly by showing us why and how the path we have been on is not leading us to where we want to be. If you do start to feel overwhelmed, take some time to yourself from the stress to get grounded and re-centered.

Thursday morning begins with a Void of Course Moon that will move into Pisces mid-morning. A Pisces Moon can bring about feelings of romance, heightened intuition, mystical and dreamy moods, and an interest in the unknown, religion and all that is magical. We tend to become softer, sentimental and more tender, speaking words of kindness and complimenting those we love. We also tend to have this deeper understanding of the hidden meaning of life, events and things, as well as a more intimate perception of beauty, art, poetry, and music.

Friday sees Mars moving signs into Capricorn. Mars seems to be quite at home in this sign, highly creative and brings with it a very deliberate, persistent energy. It may very well help you find that motivation or give that last little push to get things sorted.

There are some downsides to this transit too, however. If you tend to struggle with the above qualities or have a bit of a rebellious side where your personal freedom is concerned, you may feel restricted and uncomfortable with the limitations of this energy. Mercury will be in a trine with the North Lunar Node as well today. This aspect brings us a fresher awareness as well as a better ability to communicate that awareness. It is a beneficial resource which can help us to take a few more steps closer towards our life purpose. Just bear in mind that we also need to take action too. We will need to, at some juncture, take into account what we have observed and do something with this.


Saturday is St. Patrick’s Day and the Moon shifts from dreamy Pisces into fired up Aries this evening. Some may actually feel this shift more than others. An Aries Moon tends to bring conflict more than most times, with emotional tensions growing, people becoming short-tempered and impulsive. Some may show a readiness and fearlessness to act in an extreme situation. Even the sweetest tempered person can become a bit mean under this moon. However, it becomes easier to shake old problem and the weight of tiresome responsibility. We want to free ourselves from everything that bothers us and makes our lives feel uneasy.

Sunday is our New Moon, still in Aries. When we have a New Moon we also have the Sun in the same sign, which is why these energies are so focused and potent. For those who do energy and spell work, the New Moon is the perfect time for setting intentions for the things you wish to create, cultivate, manifest and develop. Its energies differ from the Full Moon in that the New Moon looks inward. It supports you if you’ve got to be dynamic, for a job interview or on a date. You can go ahead and start that project or try to sell your idea to others. Quick short activities are favored, rather than doing any tedious footwork. You can encourage a friend, work on self-promotion materials, or throw a party. We also have a conjunction between the Sun and Chiron.   Over the next few days, we will notice that we turn our focus towards our own healing needs. Our energy levels may be more open to health issues, making us feel somewhat drained. Some may feel a renewed sense of motivation that propels them to start building up their physical/health defenses through starting new fitness regimes, creating new health goals, and making lifestyle changes that will benefit your health in some way. This can be a good time for observation and learning regarding how issues in our lives are affecting us, the role we play in them, and what other choices we have before us. Working towards self-acceptance at this time can help strengthen the areas in our lives that make us feel weak and vulnerable.
