03/01/19 – 4:31 am – Venus goes Void-of-Course
Following a third quarter crisis of consciousness square to Uranus Venus goes void-of-course for just over four hours. It’s early morning and avoiding the temptation to “fall in love” or start a new relationship should be easier. The challenge of a void-of-course period is that you may not have all the information, details or “tools” you need to make the best decision or complete whatever you are working on. With Venus the challenges may show itself through the temptation of a “new relationship” or an issue with what you desire or how you are handling your money. Avoid starting a new relationship, making a major purchase or changing your mind on something that you either desire or have that you have cherished but are now considering disposing of. Wait until after Venus enters Aquarius in just over four hours. Then, reconsider and consider your options and the consequences of each before deciding.
03/01/19 – 8:45 am – Venus enters Aquarius
The Venus void-of-course is over. Now in fixed air Aquarius She may seem more stubborn or drawn to causes or ideals and less concerned with personal relationships or desires.
03/02/19 – 10:47 am – slow Moon goes Void-of-Course
Following a third quarter crisis of consciousness square to Uranus the Moon goes void-of-course for 20 minutes. Be alert to any sudden changes, insights or feelings. Hold on to them for consideration after the Moon enters Aquarius.
03/02/19 – 11:07 am – slow Moon enters Aquarius
This transit of Aquarius will take time as the Moon is moving slowly. There will be no major aspects between the other planets over the next two days. Aquarius is the fixed air sign. This would seem to symbolize a time for reflecting and focusing on those principles which are most important. Seek your true unique self now while there are fewer distractions. It’s time to answer the “hard questions” that you have been avoiding.
03/03/19 – slow Moon in Aquarius
There are no major aspects between the other planets today. What have you discovered about yourself or those issues that are important to you? Are you doing your “homework” or have you been avoiding it?
03/04/19 – slow Moon in Aquarius
This is the third day in a row in which there have been no major aspects between the other planets. Though the Moon is accelerating, She is still moving slowly which can create a sense of frustration as if something is blocking you or standing in your way. If there is … it’s probably You!
03/05/19 – 12:05 am – slow Moon goes Void-of-Course
Following a waning sextile to Uranus the Moon goes void-of-course for six minutes. Just sleep through it, watch TV, read a book or meditate.
03/05/19 – 12:11 am – slow Moon enters Pisces
The void-of-course is over. You are good to start on any new projects, tasks or ideas you may have; however, Mercury will be going retrograde in ten hours so be sure you choose your words carefully, reread, spell check and reread again any texts or emails before sending. Make sure they are only going to the person or people intended. Note any dreams, insights, feelings, sensations and first thought on waking.
03/05/19 – 10:19 am – Mercury stations Retrograde
This is the first of three Mercury retrogrades in 2019, all involving the three water signs. Emotions, particularly concerning past events or relationships may be emphasized during these periods. This retrograde will last 23 days and find Mercury retracing their steps over the last 14 degrees of Pisces. Those with planets or sensitive points within those degrees should be more cautious.
03/06/19 – 12:27 am – Uranus enters Taurus
Uranus bids adieu to Aries until 2094. What might the next seven years hold in store for us as Uranus slowly moves through fixed earth Taurus? Taurus is associated with personal values, how we make and use or misuse our money. Those with planets or sensitive points in Taurus are more likely to feel this transit. Caution will be the order of the day for the next seven years. Be sure you understand the fine print before signing any contracts, especially those dealing with long term financial commitments or obligations such as purchasing a home or car.
03/06/19 – 3:25 am – slow Moon sextile Mars
This is the waning sextile in the monthly Moon Mars cycle and the first of seven exact aspects; six of them by the Moon today so you may want to break out a fresh box of tissue. The waning sextile symbolizes a time for wrapping up whatever you are working on and for assimilating it into your life.
03/06/19 – 8:04 am – New Moon conjunct Sun
This is the second exact aspect of the day and marks the beginning of a new Moon Sun cycle. Time to plant your new “seeds” of ideas, tasks or projects you want to manifest in the month ahead. This new Moon is at 15 Pisces 47. The Sabian Symbol for this degree is “In a quiet moment, the flow of inspiration.” Allow yourself to be open to new insights. Note any dreams you had during the night, any feelings or sensations on waking and your first thought. Be observant and open throughout the day as insights may come from anywhere.
Following this the Moon will conjunct Neptune and then sextile Saturn for the third and fourth exact aspects of the day. While Neptune may try to hide or confuse through His mists, Saturn can guide you through it to the truth of it all. Time to separate fact from fiction.
03/06/19 – 4:59 pm – Sun conjunct Neptune
This is the fifth exact aspect of the day. While Neptune may make one more attempt to confuse or hide things from you; take a breath, pause and allow the Sun to burn away any obscuring fog.
Following this the Moon will make a waxing first quarter crisis of action square to Jupiter for the sixth exact aspect of the day. Don’t be taken in by “fake news;” whatever the source, or anything that you know not to be true. Be true to yourself.
03/06/19 – 9:41 pm – slow Moon sextile Pluto
As darkness descends and we stand on the edge of the “underworld” ruled by Pluto, this waxing sextile is the seventh and final exact aspect of the day. The waxing or growing sextile symbolizes the time of the budding of the “new seed.” This is a good time to reflect on your day and whatever “new” things you are working on. Take note of any dreams, insights or awarenesses you had during the day and on waking tomorrow note what you learned during the night.
03/07/19 – 11:08 am – slow Moon goes Void-of-Course
Following a conjunction with retrograde Mercury the Moon goes void-of-course for one hour 20 minutes. Choose your words very carefully for there is a good chance you may be misunderstood.
03/07/19 – 12:28 pm – slow Moon enters Aries
Though still slow, the Moon is gradually gaining speed. Aries is ruled by Mars and symbolizes a time for taking action. Beware of your impulses, those sudden, seemingly uncontrollable urges to “do something.” Consider your options and the possible consequences before taking action. Don’t do something you may later regret.
03/08/19 – 11:10 pm – Sun sextile Saturn
This is the waxing sextile in the Sun Saturn cycle. The truth will out. If you or someone close to you has been less than honest or truthful, chances are that you or they may be found out during this time. It is late so be sure to record any dreams, insights or feelings when you first wake.
03/09/19 – 9:13 am – slow Moon goes Void-of-Course
Following a waxing first quarter crisis of action square to Saturn the Moon goes void-of-course for almost fourteen hours. It’s Saturday and this long void-of-course will last most of the day so stick with your routine or whatever plans you have made.
03/09/19 – 11:10 pm – slow Moon enters Taurus
With the Moon now in Her second home if you have some great new “thing” you want to try, you should be good to go; just be sure to consider the possible consequences of your actions. Taurus is the fixed earth sign so proceed with caution. Rushing in to anything is not advised.
03/10/19 2 am – Daylight Savings Time Begins
Check all your timepieces to make sure they have been reset. If not, the rule is Spring forward one hour today. In November we will Fall back one hour.
03/10/19 – 9:19 am – Mars sextile Neptune
This is another waxing sextile. First, note any dreams, insights or feelings on waking for they can guide you through this day. It’s Sunday, allow yourself to be open to whatever the You-niverse shows you.
03/11/19 – 7:17 am – accelerating Moon sextile Neptune
This is the first of five exact aspects by the Moon today so you may want to check your tissue supply. Note any dreams, insights, first thoughts or memories you have on waking. Pay attention to any “day-dreams” today as well.
Following this the Moon will conjunct Mars, make a waxing trine to Saturn and then a waxing sextile to the Sun for the second, third and fourth aspects of the day. The energy for today is to “nurture and grow” what seeds you planted at the new Moon; to be honest, especially with yourself, and move forward.
03/11/19 – 7:13 pm – accelerating Moon trine Pluto
This waxing trine is the fifth and final exact aspect of the day. This symbolizes a time for reviewing actions you have taken on any projects, tasks, or ideas you are working on. Are your actions having the desired/expected result? Make whatever adjustments are needed to keep the projects, tasks or ideas on track.
03/12/19 – 2:30 am – average speed Moon goes Void-of-Course
Following a waxing sextile to retrograde Mercury the Moon goes void-of-course for over six hours. You will probably sleep through a good part of this so when you do get up, stick with your plan for the morning or your normal morning routine. Wait until after the Moon enters inquisitive, talkative Gemini before tackling anything new or making any unplanned changes.
03/12/19 – 8:47 am – average speed Moon enters Gemini
While the Moon is moving at about Her average speed She is accelerating and continuing to move slightly faster and faster each day. This can create a sense of increasing pressure or need to make decisions, move or say what’s on your mind. Don’t! Remember Mercury is retrograde so be sure to engage your brain and consider what it is you want to say, why and to whom? As Abraham Lincoln said; “It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.”
03/13/19 – 7:29 am – Sun sextile Pluto
This is the waxing sextile in the annual Sun Pluto cycle. With the Sun in idealistic, spiritually oriented Pisces now is a good time to reflect on what your beliefs are? Do you consider yourself a religious, spiritual or other type of being? Whichever it may be, they are all within the realm of Pisces, the mutable water sign. Pluto pushes us to be our pure authentic self. Whatever that may be for you, be that and life should move forward more smoothly.
03/13/19 – 6:29 pm – Sun square Jupiter
This is the waxing first quarter crisis of action square in the 13 month cycle of the two largest bodies in our Solar System. Jupiter does tend to exaggerate everything so stop, think and consider the consequences before taking action. Don’t over-indulge.
03/14/19 – 5:30 am – accelerating Moon goes Void-of-Course
Following a waxing first quarter square to retrograde Mercury the Moon goes void-of-course for nine hours. With the Moon in retrograde Mercury’s sign of Gemini, conversations may flow more easily. Things said before; be it spoken, e-mail, text or other written form, may come up again. Allow yourself time to consider what was said and what is being said about it as you contemplate your response. Don’t respond from or in anger. Remember we are each unique individuals and when communicating are coming from our own unique point of view and understanding.
03/14/19 – 2:49 pm – accelerating Moon enters Cancer
Home at last; the Moon may now shift our thoughts or actions to considering those closest to us. What more might we do to comfort, nurture or protect them? With the Moon moving faster now this will be a short visit to Her home sign of Cancer and so a growing sense of urgency may prevail.
03/15/19 – 4:16 pm – retrograde Mercury square Jupiter
This is the second waxing first quarter crisis of action square between these two. The first one was February 22. After Mercury goes direct, there will be one more on April 11. Jupiter wants to make more of something than it is. With Mercury in apparent retrograde motion something from the past may come up again. Avoid over-thinking it and don’t exaggerate it, whatever “it” may be.
03/16/19 – 1:21 am – fast Moon sextile Mars
This is the waxing sextile in the monthly Moon Mars cycle and the first of five exact aspects today. Deal with any past issues that may come up but don’t waste your time in regret. If it comes up; apologize for past mistakes and make amends if you can, then move forward.
Following this the Moon will oppose Pluto and then make a waxing trine to retrograde Mercury for the second and third exact aspects of the day. Things may seem to happen or develop faster during this time. Mercury retrograde should allow you to draw on your past experiences to help you better deal with whatever comes up.
03/16/19 – 6:08 am – retrograde Mercury sextile Pluto
This is the fourth exact aspect of the day and another waxing sextile. With Mercury; planet of communication and our thought processes retrograde, we may find ourselves reflecting on things we’ve done that we may now regret or “re-think” if I had done this instead of that. Learn from the past but don’t dwell on it. You can’t change it. As a wise sage once said; “Why are you looking back? The past is already written. The ink is dry.” Use the lessons of the past as a means to help you move forward.
03/16/19 – 11:03 am – fast Moon goes Void-of-Course
Following a waxing trine to the Sun;, the fifth and final exact aspect of the day, the Moon goes void-of-course for almost seven hours. It’s Saturday so for now; stick with whatever plans you have made or whatever your usual routine is. Wait until after the Moon enters Leo before making any changes or trying something new.
03/16/19 – 5:57 pm – fast Moon enters Leo
The void-of-course is over. It’s Saturday evening and if you want to try something new or different go ahead; but proceed with caution as “all eyes may be on you” so don’t expect to “get away with anything.”
03/17/19 – 8:23 pm – retrograde Mercury sextile Mars
This is the waning sextile in the Mercury Mars cycle. With Mercury in apparent retrograde motion this is an appropriate time to review actions you have taken. Are they giving the results desired? Do they need to be revised? This aspect symbolizes a time for making any final adjustments and to complete integration into the finished product or your life.
03/18/19 – 8:18 am – fast Moon goes Void-of-Course
Following a waning trine to Jupiter the Moon goes void-of-course for over ten hours. The waning or closing trine symbolizes a time for contracting as one reviews what they are working on and begins the final process of paring things down to the essential final product. This time might best be used in reflecting on that which is unfinished and what is needed to finish it.
03/18/19 – 6:42 pm – fast Moon enters Virgo
Time to get practical. Be literal. Use your analytical skills as you turn your critical eye on any unfinished business. Make it the best it can and is meant to be.
03/19/19 – Fast Moon in Virgo
There are no major exact aspects between the other planets today. The Moon is moving fast and will be void-of-course again tomorrow. It’s OK to be quiet today as you continue to analyze and evaluate your life and whatever you may be working on.
03/20/19 – 1:15 am – fast Moon trine Saturn
This is the waning trine in the monthly Moon Saturn cycle and the first of seven exact aspects; five by the Moon today so get out the tissue as emotions may “turn on a dime.” Dot your “i’s” and cross your “t’s” for today is the day to follow all the rules and instructions. Avoid taking risks or short-cuts for they may not turn out to your liking.
Following this the Moon will oppose retrograde Mercury for the second exact aspect of the day. Take some time to retrace your steps and re-think your plan of action. Choose your words carefully.
03/20/19 – 4:41 am – Mars trine Pluto
This is the waxing trine and third exact aspect of the day. What is on your schedule today for becoming the best version of you? With Mars in fixed earth Taurus expect that it may take extra effort to accomplish whatever you are working on today.
Following this the fast Moon will make a waning trine to Pluto and then a waxing trine to Mars for the fourth and fifth exact aspects of the day. Be emotionally true to yourself and the easy flowing trines between these three, Moon, Mars and Pluto can help you to make the most of this day. With the end results worth it, the effort required may end up seeming almost effortless.
03/20/19 – 7:26 am – retrograde Mercury sextile Saturn
This is the second of three waxing sextiles between these two; (because of the Mercury retrograde) and the sixth exact aspect of the day. Choose your words carefully but remember; the truth is always the best choice. Anything less will probably come back to haunt you.
03/20/19 – 8:21 am – fast Moon goes Void-of-Course
Following a waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square to Jupiter; the seventh and final exact aspect of the day, the Moon goes void-of-course for over ten hours. It’s been a busy morning so use this time to rest, reflect and focus on any work in progress. Avoid any temptation to take the easy way out, exaggerate, or bend the rules. Wait until this evening, after the Moon enters Libra before you start anything new.
03/20/19 – 6:28 pm – fast Moon enters Libra
The void-of-course is over. With the Moon now in “let’s get together” Libra, the sign of others, this could be a good time to call on some co-workers, friends or family and ask for their help with whatever you might be working on. Or perhaps you could see if they might need help with whatever they might be working on.
03/21/19 – 1:07 am – Venus square Mars
This is the waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square in their cycle. This aspect symbolizes a time for making any “final” adjustment or “tweaks” to a passion project that you might be working on or perhaps a significant relationship that needs some attention. Since this is the wee hours of the morning, make note of any dreams, insights, “a-ha” moments, sensations or feelings on waking. There may be a “pearl of wisdom” in there that will come to you later.
03/21/19 – 7:16 am – Venus sextile Jupiter
This is the waxing sextile in their current cycle. Did you start something new around mid-January when these two were conjunct? If so, time to give it some TLC. Even easy things need some attention from time to time.
03/22/19 – 1:38 am – fast Moon square Saturn
Though slowing down, the Moon is still moving fast as She makes the first of five exact aspects and a void-of-course today. This is the waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square. What “truth” came to you in the night? What was your first “real” feeling of the day? Honesty remains the best policy.
Following this the Moon will make another waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square, this time to Pluto and then a waning sextile to Jupiter for the second and third exact aspects of the day. Waning aspects represent the time from opposition or full to new or conjunction. This time is best used for reviewing, reflecting, proofing and finishing projects or tasks that you are working on.
03/22/19 – 11:10 am – fast Moon goes Void-of-Course
Following a waning trine to Venus, the fourth exact aspect of the day; the Moon goes void-of-course for over eight hours. Avoid starting any new projects, tasks or ideas until this evening, after the Moon enters Scorpio. With the Goddess of Love and Beauty involved you might want to turn your attention to your appearance. Is it time to finish updating your style or perhaps cutting off the last of your mullet?
03/22/19 – 7:17 pm – fast Moon enters Scorpio
The void-of-course is over. With the Moon now in fixed water intense Scorpio feelings may seem to be rawer or mood swings may come on more suddenly. Cut yourself and everyone else some extra slack.
03/22/19 – 8:37 pm – fast Moon opposite Uranus
This is the fifth and final exact aspect of the day. Prepare yourself for what could be an unusual evening. Be alert for sudden insights, mood swings or even emotional outbursts; and not just yours.
03/23/19 – fast Moon in Scorpio
There are no major aspects between the other planets today so the Moon may have Her way. The Moon is continuing to slow down but She is still moving relatively fast so caution is the word of the day. How was your night? Anything sudden or unexpected happen? All dreams, insights, feelings or sensations should be noted including the circumstances in which they were experienced for they will probably be important.
03/24/19 – 4:25 am – slowing Moon sextile Saturn
This is the waning sextile in the monthly Moon Saturn cycle and the first of five exact aspects and a Moon void-of-course today. It’s Sunday and you may want to lay low or take it easy. Certainly it is probably best not to tackle anything new but rather use this time to touch up or finish up things that have been neglected such as finishing that book you started a while ago.
03/24/19 – 10:27 am – retrograde Mercury conjunct Neptune
This is the second exact aspect of the day. With Mercury retrograde contacting the Lord of deception and illusion you may want to take a vow of silence, at least for the rest of the day. Speak if you must but choose your words carefully or else they may be served back to you on an old plate.
Following this the Moon will make a waning sextile to Pluto and then oppose Mars for the third and fourth exact aspects of the day. Actions may be more difficult today as Pluto places challenges in your path and Mars engages in a tug-of-war with the Moon. With the Earth on Her side, advantage Moon. Trust your intuition and go with your feelings on this one.
03/24/19 – 7:23 pm – slowing Moon and Venus go Void-of-Course
Following a waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square; the fifth and final exact aspect of the day, both the Moon and Venus go void-of-course. While the Moon’s void-of-course will last less than four hours, Venus’ will last over 43 hours. This is a good evening for relaxing finishing that series you started to binge watch. Avoid starting a new relationship, making any expensive purchase or making any long term commitments, at least until after Venus enters Pisces on March 26.
03/24/19 – 11:06 pm – slowing Moon enters Sagittarius
Having slowed to about Her average speed the Moon enters mutable fire Sagittarius where She may tend to feel happier and more philosophical. Now may be a good time to learn something new. It may be something related to your work or hobby or it may be something totally unrelated. Perhaps you’ve been curious about some distant land or time. If “curiosity killed the cat;” now is the time for satisfaction to bring the cat back to life.
