The Spring Equinox is on Sunday—March 20th
This may not be the most celebratory week, especially on St. Patrick’s Day, and it’s not just the Irish fighting. We have a nonstop succession of lunar squares and oppositions, making this an emotionally fraught period, where everyone may be quick to express outrage and overreact.
A chart cast for the next three months shows that Mercury, Jupiter and Neptune are all closely aligned in visionary Neptune. This energy is preparing us for the alignment of Jupiter and Neptune coming on April 12. In a nutshell, it is time to open to a higher vision, the kind of vision that comes from beyond the veils of this world.
Because we are ramping up for risk-taking Jupiter to move into Aries in May, this is a perfect time to step away from your busy world to get in touch with a higher vision for how you want to live your life. Your higher philosophical mind is aligning with your lower mind to better blend your spiritual vision for yourself with pragmatic realities.
The week begins with a stubborn T Square in fixed signs between the Moon, Mars, Uranus, and Venus, which is strengthened by the Moon’s opposition to Saturn on Tuesday, the Ides of March. These early days in the week will be especially difficult on individuals, at any attempt at non-conformity will be quickly trampled on.
Tuesday is somewhat of a challenging day, particularly in the afternoon for USA time zones. Aggressive Mars challenges revolutionary Uranus. Avoid forcing mechanical things to go beyond their limits, and that includes road rage situations. Anyone who has problems with authority figures should take the afternoon off.
The Moon continues its spat of contrary oppositions for the rest of the workweek., wrestling with Mercury, Jupiter, Neptune, and the Sun, making matters rather moody and emotionally volatile.
Wednesday is a better day to communicate your higher vision, dreams or desire to travel.
The energy culminates on Friday’s Full Moon in Virgo, which sends empowering vibes to Pluto, helping to take the edge off a rather rough week in the feelings department. Friday and Saturday tend towards practical activities such as practical projects around the house or office.
Feelings like walking on egg shells pervade on theß weekend, due to a square between Venus and a jittery Uranus on Saturday and the Moon with Pluto on Sunday.
