2016-03-22 Calendar of Aspects

March 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 13 (W13)

Moon is void in Virgo all day long, entering Libra 10:23 PM PDT / 11:23 PM MDT in the swestern part of the United States.  Again, stick to routine tasks and plans for action after the eclipse on Wednesday.

Ceres opposes the North Node (and, therefore, conjoins the South Node), and we are tempted to “take the easy way out.”  Think twice before you decide to go that route.  Vesta sesquiquadrates the North Node and semi-squares Ceres (and the South Node) telling us that we must look at tradition before making any major decisions today.  Given that the Moon is v/c, we should likely avoid major commitments that involve our prosperity today.  Pallas opposes Astraea, and legal issues may come to the forefront.

March 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 13 (W13)

Today is the “Ecclesiastical” beginning of Spring (used as part of the determination of when Easter occurs).  Moon is in Virgo all day and quite active.  Mercury enters Aries in the evening and is void (v/c) prior to that.  Communications and transportation problems may emerge during this window; do not buy a vehicle, computer, or phone during this time.

Moon becomes void only a few hours later, making it difficult to accomplish anything lasting today.  Stick to routine tasks and plans for action after the eclipse on Wednesday.

Mercury makes higher order aspects on this day, so smart ideas will likely come to you including ideas about how to help those less fortunate than yourself.  If you do help others, do it during the void anonymously and without thought, hope, or expectation that you will receive favorable recognition for it.  Do it only to help someone, anonymously, and without any other thought or intention.

Ceres quincunx Astraea adds an unfavorable cast to today, and unexpected fines or taxes (or other legal matters) might affect your prosperity.  Focus that bright idea you get on how to solve that problem.  Jupiter / Vesta hints that we will need to decide between sticking to “tradition” (or unwritten rules) or challenging them to accomplish what you need to do.

The Vernal Equinox was late yesterday for most of the United States but is today on the East Coast (EDT) and in EU / UK.

Venus perfects a conjunction to Neptune today, but the day is mostly quiet.  Outer planet aspects consist of Pluto makiing high order (subtle) aspects to Pallas (ingenuity, particularly of a military kind) and Vesta (traditions).

2016-03-20 Venus Conjunct Neptune (Pisces)

We will not do a “deep dive” here on this aspect since (1) others have covered it in depth and (2) it occurs on the day of the Vernal Equinox of 2016.  (Duplicating our analysis is uncessary.)  We find three patterns (1) a Grand Fire Trine (which several others have mentioned); (2) a Yod (decision) that has been ongoing; (3) a Hele that is longer term and discussed on the Vernal Equinox page (and elsewhere); and (4) a Square Key that is longer term and discussed on the Vernal Equinox page (and elsewhere).

That said, we present the perfection of Venus conjunct Neptune (Pisces) filtered for the Grand Fire Trine:

Given the spiritual / meditative quality of this aspect, and the high energy quality of a Grand Fire Trine, we recommend some form of “moving mediation” such as walking a labyrinth…

2016-03 W12: Forecasts for Week 12 of 2016

The Vernal Equinox is March 19th / 20th depending on your location (with Venus conjunct Neptune on the same day), and the next lunation (a Aries / Libra Full Moon) follows on March 23rd (Jupiter perfects a square to Saturn a few hours earlier on the same day).  You already feel Jupiter / Saturn (especially the financial markets do), and this is the second of three with the first being last fall.

Focused Yods are also present this month, and we can “get things done” during these periods (absent other considerations such as v/c moons):

 Focused Yod Enters   March 12 2016 10:52:06 pm (CST +6:00)
 Focused Yod Leaves March 14 2016 12:32:31 pm (CDT +5:00)
 Focused Yod Enters   Mar 17 2016 4:52:40 pm (CDT +5:00)

Sun Enters Aries (Vernal Equinox) 2016-03-19

The Vernal Equinox occurs March 19th in most of the United States and March 20th in UK / Europe.  (Click here for more about the change of seasons in 2016.)  We have a Focused Yod present.  That pattern requires you to make a decision (choose wisely!) but also gives you the power to “get things done” once you have made that decision.  That pattern occurring at this time will give you both a similar requirement and a similar advantage until at least the Summer Solstice and possibly as long as the Vernal Equinox in 2017.

Here is the chart for the Vernal Equinox of 2016, filtered for the Focused Yod:

2016-03-19 Calendar of Aspects

March 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 12 (W12)

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.)

2016-03-19 Sunout All Aspects (Daily)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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.

Week 12 (W12)

A relatively benevolent Moon v/c begins after midnight (Moon Trine Sun) and ends near 4 AM CDT with the entry of the Moon into Leo.  The moon is more quiet today than yesterday, with quincunx aspects to Venus (afternoon) and Neptune (evening).  You may encounter a few glitches, but for most people they will be forgetten in a day or two and certainly by next week.

2016-03-18 Sunout All Aspects (Daily)

Outer planet aspects are far more busy (yesterday was relatively quiet with a Ceres / Uranus aspect bring a surprise regarding our prosperity (“The Visa is maxed out? Again?)).

Mars sesquiquadrate Uranus brings us some sense of urgency (possibly anger) to “get things done.”  Chiron opposite North Node (“Rahu” to some) means it is conjunct the South Node (“Ketu”) and, therefore, we have a temptation to “take the easy way out” or “cut corners” regarding some issue involving healthcare, education, or both.  (Don’t do it!)

Pallas does BiQuintile Hygeia, and we CAN have a brilliant insight into how to solve problems today.  Just focus your efforts, do not get derailed, do not cut corners, and do the work necessary.

Tomorrow brings the Vernal Equinox for most of the United States (except the East Coast that experiences a half hour past midnight EDT on March 20th and UK / EU which experiences it in the early morning hours on March 20th).  Things will change.

2016-03-17 Sunout All Aspects (Daily)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the Moon is very busy today, perfecting seven aspects (not including higher order aspects such as quintiles and septiles).  The afternoon and evening has a series of lunar trines on this traditional Irish holiday (the date of St. Patrick’s death), and we expect the evening to go well for most people (except anyone who consumes too much in the way of mood altering substances and contributes to an accident or other harmful situation).

Mercury conjunct Chiron today tells us that we have communications and transportation related to health, education or both.  Much of today is about processing the earlier three days of the week.
