2016-03-19 Calendar of Aspects
In most of the United States, except the Eastern Time Zone (EDT), the Vernal Equinox greets us late tonight. (EU / UK experience this a half past 5 or half past 6 or later depending upon time zone.)

Sun biseptiles Saturn, and we should consider resolving some old karma or helping someone less fortunate than ourselves or both. Sun quintiles Pluto, and we may encounter a very ingenious idea that either (a) helps us with the biseptiles (helping someone else) or (b) gives us a gift in the form of a smart idea that comes from providing said help. In any case, they go together and they set the stage for the days to come at least until the Summer Solstice (late June) or possibly as long as the Vernal Equinox of next year (late March). Venus septile Pluto confirms this emphasis on helping others.
Venus novile Uranus provides us with a gift of some sort this evening, an insight or useful skill, likely resulting from helping others (or maybe an insight because we failed to help; those can be hard lessons sometimes). This novile signals a coming Venus / Uranus conjunction where we may enter into “unusual” relationships (or GLBT) or have ideas for particularly unusual or creative art (or money management).
Marsout aspects (outer planet aspects) are silent / absent today.
The Vernal Equinox happens 11:30 PM CDT / 10:30 PM MDT / 9:30 PM PDT and after midnight on March 20th 12:30 AM EDT on the east coast. A new annual cycle for the Sun begins, and this is the beginning of the “Astrological New Year” as well.
