A mixture of plus and minus aspects, and a Void period in the evening.

Wednesday, March 20
A massive day astrologically with many lunar aspects, two * factors (The Vernal Equinox and a Full Moon) and a long Void period. Even a seasoned astrologer would be challenged to sort out everything occurring today.
12:12 AM - (Moon in Virgo 180 Neptune in Pisces) increases the possibilities for haziness and emotional confusion as well as highly refined artistic and spiritual feelings and aspirations. This period is better for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, and meditation than for logical discussions and clear-cut decisions.
04:15 AM + (Moon Virgo 120 Saturn Capricorn) provides an atmosphere for orderly, steady, conscientious, pragmatic, and realistic plans and activities, especially involving business and professional matters because it involves the earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn.
04:34 AM + (Moon in Virgo 180 Mercury in Pisces) favors reflection, writing, and communication because this lunar aspect creates a more active exchange between the conscious and unconscious minds.
09:28 AM + (Moon in Virgo 150 Venus in Aquarius) fosters cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
10:03 AM + (Moon Virgo 120 Pluto in Capricorn) symbolizes females who are influential, productive, and psychic. This aspect also increases the possibilities for practicality and solid business plans as well as deeper feelings and psychic impressions.
10:10 AM + (Moon in Virgo 120 Mars in Taurus) creates a time to trust your instincts and to be bolder and more direct especially with how you feel about business and professional matters because it involves the earth signs, Taurus and Virgo.
11:21 AM + (Moon in Virgo 90 Jupiter in Sagittarius) favors interpersonal situations and working with the public because this lunar aspect increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive attitudes, shared feelings, and uplifting emotional support.
11:21 AM Moon in Virgo until 09:27 PM when it enters the next sign, Libra, where it remains until Friday evening when it enters the next sign, Scorpio.
05:58 PM * (Vernal Equinox) marking the beginning of Spring with Sun entering Aries after being in Pisces the last 30 days. We move from wanting to contemplate how it feels (Pisces) to taking more direct action (Aries). And with Sun now in Aries, it’s more appropriate to manifest and be involved with Aries-related attributes and activities such as initiative, independence, competition, leadership, crusading, innovation, pioneering, exploratory, athletics, outdoor activities, and manual labor.
09:42 PM - * (Full Moon with Moon in Libra 180 Sun in Aries) with any business, project, decision, relationship, wedding, or birth started near a Full Moon, there is a need to understand and find a middle ground between the needs of the two signs involved because there are significant differences in how they approach life. Furthermore, if you have any planets in opposition in your horoscope, there is a “push and pull” between two primary needs in your life. You are challenged to integrate two inherently different and opposing forces. The Full Moon today is a good example. Aries in opposition to Libra symbolizes the battle between the need to be true to yourself (Aries) and the need to be more conscious of the needs of others (Libra).
10:35 PM - (Moon in Libra 150 Uranus in Taurus) increases instincts and willfulness but also brings nervousness, anxiety, upsets, restlessness, excitability, volatility, and emotionally charged situations.
Thursday, March 21
A plus and active day with three * factors.
12:16 AM + (Moon in Libra 180 Chiron in Aries) symbolizes caring females and special opportunities for healing relationships and families.
04:07 AM + - * (Venus in Aquarius 90 Mars in Taurus) in effect the past week, the impact of this aspect can go either way with the planet of love and art (Venus) in conflict with the planet of desires and sex (Mars). People with this aspect can be quite passionate, expressive, and creative, but can also have problems with spending and curbing their sensual desires which result in numerous romantic partners. Many of their relationships can be short-lived. They become bored and rush to explore other options.
11:16 AM - (Moon in Libra 135 Mars in Taurus) intensifies interpersonal situations and is likely to bring impatience, impulsiveness, strong desires, and even anger and forceful actions, especially involving females. If you are trying to resolve an issue with someone, for example, be aware that upsets and volatile emotions are more likely than rational thinking.
11:33 AM + (Moon in Libra 135 Venus in Aquarius) fosters cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
03:42 PM + * (Mars in Taurus 150 Jupiter in Sagittarius) an opportunity aspect which occurs about twice a year and is in effect for more than a week. Related to victory and success, this aspect supports any new idea or venture. People with this aspect have the drive and courage to make their visions a reality. They innately feel confident and optimistic doing whatever they need to do.
10:20 PM + * (Venus in Aquarius 150 Node in Cancer) in effect this past week, this aspect favors interpersonal situations with increased warmth, pleasantries, cooperation, adaptiveness, and preference for harmony. This aspect also enhances teamwork, networking, and social interactions especially involving the arts.
Guidelines for Using This Information
I keep this information as clear and straightforward as possible, but even for students of astrology, it can be difficult to sort everything out. There are many factors to consider, and sometimes the overlapping influences are contradictory. You might say this is just like life.
For starts, keep in mind that these newsletters are not intended to tell you what is going to happen in your life at the times given. Instead, the aspect descriptions provide some of the possible influences you can expect around the times given so you can more wisely plan for and participate in your life. Often, it is obvious which time frames are better than others for timing or starting a party, trip, decision, business, or any other event, for example.
The star (*) factors are more significance for right timing because they are in effect for a more extended time (often up to a week). Any business, project, decision, relationship, wedding, and childbirth, for example, started around the dates given will have the qualities and characteristics of the descriptions listed.
The lunar (Moon) aspects listed are less significant because they are in effect for only hours (versus days) before and until the times (Eastern Time) given, but they are still quite relevant for right timing.
The plus (+) factors for both the * factors and lunar factors are favorable. The minus (-) factors are more likely to bring challenges or difficulties. Sometimes there is a + and - factor which means the aspect can exhibit both positive and negative influences.
The most critical factor with right timing is what’s occurring in your horoscope. When negative aspects dominate your horoscope, the chances of success with right timing diminish no matter how favorable the aspects are in the sky. These newsletters cannot cover what is occurring in your horoscope, but if you apply the information in these newsletters with common sense, you have an advantage with timing your decisions and activities.
The basic premise with right timing is that it helps to have the "stars" on your side. Starting a marriage, trip, surgery, business, real estate deal, or a major purchase, for example, at an inopportune time reduces the chances of success no matter how good your intentions and how hard you try. The better the timing, the higher your chances of success. Even an hour can make a significant difference in important decisions and events.
During Void periods there tends to be a lull in the energy levels, and what you start, or implement is less likely to turn out the way you planned or expected. So, it’s usually better to do things with less significance or no purpose in mind versus trying to start something new and vital. If you have a new idea, meet someone new, or start a business, for example, those activities are less likely to amount to much.
The Moon enters each sign of the zodiac about every 28 days and remains in that sign for about two and a half days. When the Moon’s in your sun sign, matters are likely to come more together for you on a short-term basis unless there are significant aspects currently challenging your horoscope.
Note that the traits and qualities I assign to each sign in these newsletters describe more the functions and meanings of the signs versus trying to describe your personality, although at times the descriptions may be entirely accurate. Furthermore, to understand a person’s personality and character from an astrological perspective, there are a multitude of factors in a horoscope to consider besides one's sun sign.
