02/26/2021 – 9:07 am – fast Moon enters Virgo

Following this the Moon will oppose Venus and then make a waxing trine to Uranus for the only other exact major aspects today.  Take stock of where you are, what needs to be done and how best to do it.  If you are out tonight, take advantage of the light of the coming full Moon and avoid the shadows. 


02/27/2021 – 12:17 am – fast Full Moon opposite Sun

This Full Moon is known as the snow Moon and also the hunger Moon for it is this time of year when the snow may be highest and food supplies may be running low.  The Moon is at 8 Virgo 57’.  The Sabian Symbol for this degree is “A man making a futurist drawing.”  Use the light and energy of the full Moon to help you see into the future and plan your future creation.  What are your plans for the weekend?  What do you need to have and do to complete those tasks?

Following this the Moon will oppose Neptune this evening.  Avoid the shadows tonight.  Look up and let the light of the full Moon and stars guide you.  Take time to consider where you are in your life and where it is you want to be.  Think it.  See it.  Believe it.  Achieve it.


02/28/2021 – 7:58 am – fast Moon trine Mars

This waxing trine to Mars is the last exact aspect of February.  Following this, both the Moon and Mars go void-of-course.  The Moon’s will last for just over 3 hours; however, Mars’ will last almost 82 hours, that is over three days.  If you have any new tasks, projects or ideas you would like to get started on, wait until after the Moon enters Libra before starting them. 

With Mars void-of-course and Moon Wobble in effect, watch out for the “other guy,” the one who causes accidents.  Avoid taking chances or making impulsive decisions.  Stay alert and aware of your surroundings.  Check your emergency plans and supplies.  If you don’t have one, make one.  It’s not a matter of “if,” it’s a matter of “when.”


02/28/2021 – 11:17 am – fast Moon enters Libra

The Moon’s void-of-course is over.  This afternoon and evening could be a good time to spend with others or seek the assistance of others with whatever you may be working on.


February ends with a waxing trine by the Moon to Mars and March begins with a waning trine by the Moon to Saturn.  Mars and Saturn were considered by the ancients to be the two malefics and carried with them difficult and challenging implications.  What then might we expect for March?  March starts with Mars void-of-course during a Moon Wobble.  This suggests continued chaos, natural disasters, and increased anxiety for much of the world.  March 3rd brings 8 exact major aspects and the end of Mars void-of-course.  There will be other days with five or six exact major aspects plus a short Venus void-of-course and a longer Mercury void-of-course which will end on the “Ides of March.”  Mars will go out-of-bounds north joining the Moon and finally, Moon Wobble should end. 


03/01/21 – 1:17 am – fast Moon trine Saturn

This is the first exact major aspect of March.  The Moon will make three waning trines today, first to Saturn, then to Mercury and finally to Jupiter.  This suggests that if you have any work leftover from February to finish, this is the day to get it done.  If not, it may be best if you concentrate on any work in progress that can or needs to be completed this week or this month.


03/02/21 – 6:09 am – fast Moon goes Void-of-Course

Following a waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square to Pluto, the Moon goes void-of-course for about 6 1/2 hours.  It is best if you start your day by sticking with your routine or whatever you had planned for the day, at least until this afternoon, after the Moon enters Scorpio.


03/02/21 – 12:38 pm – fast Moon enters Scorpio

Did you feel the shift from cardinal, let’s work together air Libra to fixed water, intense Scorpio?  Most probably will not.  Just know that a lot of people may be feeling more on edge or stressed for the next couple of days, even though they may not know why.  Maintain your distance and mind what you say and how you say it.


03/03/21 – 12:39 am – fast Moon trine Venus

This waning trine is the first of eight exact major aspects today, seven of them by the Moon.  You may want to check your tissue supply and keep some close at hand, for others if not for yourself.  Following this the Moon will oppose Uranus, the second exact aspect of the day and the only aspect that isn’t waning.  The Moon will then make a waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square to Saturn for the third exact aspect of the day.

Of the eight exact major aspects today, there is one opposition and seven waning aspects.  Today may be best suited to concentrating on work in progress and those things that are closest to being completed or can be completed quickly including any “new” things.  The planets involved also suggest that you should be open to insights, sudden “a-ha” type moments that may provide answers to questions or problems that you are dealing with.


03/03/21 – 9:09 am – Venus sextile Uranus

This waning sextile is the fourth exact aspect of the day and the only one not involving the Moon.  With Uranus in Venus’ home sign of Taurus, it may seem as if the “landlady” is stopping by to collect rent.  But perhaps She is stopping by to check on the progress of a remodel or providing some inspiration for that “make-over” you’ve been working on or wanting to do.

Following this the Moon will make a waning trine to the Sun and then a waning third quarter crisis of consciousness squares to Mercury and Jupiter for the fifth, sixth and seventh exact aspects of the day.  Third quarter squares are times for stepping back and reassessing what you are working on or where you are.  It is time to eliminate that which doesn’t add to the work at hand and keep that which adds value and completes it.


03/03/21 – 7:30 pm – Mars enters Gemini

Finally, the Mars void-of-course is over.  While you should be able to relax some, with Mars now in mutable air Gemini, be forewarned that words spoken in anger or haste will surely come back to you.  Choose your words carefully.  Speak from authority not ego.  Avoid getting into arguments, they won’t end well for either of you.


03/03/21 – 10:30 pm – fast Moon trine Neptune

This waning trine is the eighth and final exact aspect of the day.  So, how was your day?  Did you spend some time manifesting a dream?  Tonight is a good night to reflect on your dreams or beliefs.  Be sure to note any dreams, insights or inspirations that come to you in the night,


03/04/21 – 8:10 am – fast Moon goes Void-of-Course

Following a waning sextile to Pluto, the Moon goes void-of-course for about 6 1/2 hours.  If you can, set aside any new “things” until this afternoon, after the Moon enters philosophical Sagittarius.  Until then, focus on your work in progress.  There are new cycles coming up, that is conjunctions.  Time to start planning for what “new seeds” you want to plant when the new cycles begin.


03/04/21 – 2:43 pm – fast Moon enters Sagittarius

The void-of-course is over.  Did you feel the shift from fixed water, the “ice” of fire and ice Scorpio to mutable “fire” of fire and ice Sagittarius?  If you have any new “things” that you have set aside, you should be good to go. 


03/04/21 – 7:27 pm – Mercury conjunct Jupiter

This marks the beginning of a new Mercury (communication) Jupiter (expansion) cycle.  There may be an urge or tendency to embellish when speaking.  Don’t!!  You may be asked to “put up or shut up.”  Lincoln quote time again.  “It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.”  Abraham Lincoln.  When speaking your truth; remember, it is your truth, and not necessarily everyone else’s.  Better instead to embrace something that feeds your passion. 


03/05/21 – 5:56 am – fast Moon sextile Saturn

It is Friday and this waning sextile is the first of five exact major aspects by the Moon today.  The five aspects consist of three waning sextiles and two waning third quarter crisis of consciousness squares.  Let go of those things that no longer work, don’t serve you or are no longer needed.  Check your to-do list.  What needs to get done today?  Start there.  If you finish all those items, then do something you want to do.  Following this the Moon will make waning third quarter crisis of consciousness squares to Venus and then the Sun followed by another waning sextile, this time to Jupiter, for the second, third and fourth exact major aspects of the day.  Pare down, eliminate, consolidate and complete.


03/05/21 – 10:36 pm – slowing Moon sextile Mercury

This is the third waning sextile and the fifth exact major aspect of the day.  It is Friday night.  If you are out, beware the “silver-tongued” devil for if it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is and will be.  Stay close to your friends or family and watch out for each other.  With the Moon going out-of-bounds in two hours, people’s moods, emotions, feelings, and reactions may shift unexpectedly.


03/06/21 – 12:37 am – slowing Moon goes Out-of-Bounds South

The Moon is passing through 19 Sagittarius 49 as She goes out-of-bounds south.  The south represents the past, what we have brought with us, what we call to us from the past and what comes back to us.  It is possible that someone or something from your past may show up unexpectedly. 


03/06/21 – 1:44 am – slowing Moon goes Void-of-Course

Following a waning third quarter crisis of consciousness square to Neptune, the Moon goes void-of-course for about 16 1/2 hours.  This is a longer one.  Be sure to note any dreams, “a-ha” moments, feelings or sensations during the night.  For the day, focus on things in progress, things that you might be able to complete.  Set aside any new ideas, projects or tasks until this evening, after the Moon enters Capricorn or until tomorrow.


03/06/21 – 6:20 pm – slowing Moon enters Capricorn

With the Moon now in cardinal earth, get real Capricorn, it could be a good time to get down to business.  Have you started on your taxes yet?  If not, tonight might be a good time to get started.  Do you have all the documents you need?


03/07/21 – 8:09 am – slowing Moon trines Uranus

This waning trine is the first of only two exact aspects by the Moon today.  Late this afternoon the Moon will make a waning sextile to Venus.  It is Sunday, waning aspects suggest a time to consolidate and work on getting things finished.  Got some home projects that you have been working on?  Pick one and finish it.  Then pick another, finish it and on to the next.  Tonight, show some love to those closest to you.  Do something romantic and fun for them and yourself.


03/08-14/21 – A Peek at the Week Ahead

This week is filled with waning aspects and conjunctions suggesting a time for finishing things and preparing for the new cycles ahead.  Most important of the conjunctions are Sun and then Venus conjuncting Neptune.  Adding to the intrigue for the week, Mercury goes void-of-course on Wednesday for almost five days.  Saturday brings the Pisces New Moon, beginning another new cycle and giving us the weekend to work on getting those new “seeds” planted and get whatever we want started.

    Re: your comment on “like kidney stones”, unfortunately not true. My father’s stones were subjected to lithotripsy back in the late 1990s. Maximum 3 treatments were permitted. His stones stood their ground. At least he was not in discomfort.
    I enjoyed this reading otherwise.

    Interesting. Thank for your efforts!

  3.' Carmela Smith says:

    Thank you for your insights

  4.' Olivia Martinez says:

    It’s been a powerful Super Moon (March 9th) so far…also interesting it is so near Venus conjunct Uranus. It feels like really big things are happening on every front.

  5. James Schultz says:

    Here are the basic astrological details of His Royal Highness, Prince of Cambridge. Weight 8 lbs. 6 oz., according to news reports, the heaviest future King by birth weight in 100 years of more. Correct birth time is July 22, 2013, 4:24 pm, London, England.

    A true “cusper” with Sun 29 Cancer 58. Moon 28 Capricorn 17, which means that HRH was born less than 3 hours before the full Moon at 0 Aquarius. Birth ascendant is 27 Scorpio 10 and his birth M/C is 20 Virgo 36. He was born with 7 of the 10 primary points in Cardinal signs and 6 of them in water signs. He has a Grand Water Trine of Mars 6 Cancer and Jupiter 5 Cancer trining Saturn 5 Scorpio and trining Neptune 5 Pisces. He also has a Cardinal T-square with Mercury 13 Cancer opposing Pluto 9 Capricorn and both squaring Uranus 12 Aries. He has none of the 10 primary points in an Air sign and 3 of them are retrograde. 3 retrogrades is the second most common number, 2 being the most common. Born with Mars out-of-bounds north might he be a rather precocious child, to say the least.

  6.' Iolé says:

    What a time to be born for the new prince-princess in England!
    Leo sun, Cancer planets: care for the family = the Kingdom, Aquarius Moon- we need open minds in the future!

  7.' Dane Sullivan says:

    Hey Jim,
    Source: Astronomical Phenomena For the Year 2013, prepared by US Naval Observatory and Her Majesty’s Nautical Almanac which defines lunar eclipse time as Moon reaching centermost point of its journey thorough the shadow cast by the earth, and solar eclipses timed for maximum obscuration — typically different from time of simple conjunction. However, I note the Rosicrucian Ephemeris, citing JPL and the US Naval Observatory call it at 5:21. I’m betting there’s yet another computation out there.

  8. Jim Schultz says:

    Hi Dane, thank you for your comment. Not sure what your source for the eclipse time is. I use Solar Fire 8 for the dates and times I post. The time is based on the exact conjunction of the Sun and Moon which is 5:28 pm PDT. The NASA eclipse site shows a time of 5:26 pm PDT.

  9.' Dane Sullivan says:

    Probably just an editorial slip, but believe the May 9 eclipse doesn’t happen until 5:55 at 19 Taurus 33. Enjoy your observations!

    “01/18/13 – 12:56 am – Mercury conjunct Sun 28 Aquarius 26”
    Sun still in Capricorn

  11.' Donna says:

    Oh boy! I am not an astrology student, however, I do enjoy reading your article every week. I have picked up the tiniest sliver of what is being discussed and from what I am able to glean, July sounds like it has the potential to be rather challenging. As a Taurus, I was happy to have read about the Mercury retrograde before it happens! I will be carefully watching my “p’s & q’s ” throughout the month and refer back to the entirety of the article – changes are a-comin’ for sure.
    Thanks for your work!
