The next three days are on the plus side. Mercury remains in retrograde until March 28, but there are three favorable * factors in play this weekend.
Sun Sign Updates
Venus, the planet of love, affection, and money, at 25 to 27 degrees Aquarius benefits the house in your horoscope ruled by Aquarius and may help anyone with planets and points at 25 to 27 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus Leo Scorpio Aquarius), especially Aquarius.
Mars, the planet of will, effort, and desire, at 24 to 25 degrees Taurus is likely bringing stress and conflicts for anyone born around the fifteenth of February, May, August, September, October, and November and anyone with planets or points at 24 and 25 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius.
Jupiter, the planet of hope, opportunity, and good fortune, approaching 24 degrees Sagittarius, brings opportunities for anyone born around the fifteenth of any month, especially December, and for any planets and points in your horoscope around 25 degrees.
Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn should know that Saturn at 19 degrees Capricorn is likely creating challenges, tests, delays, losses, and realities for anyone born around the tenth of January, April, June, July, August, and October and for anyone with points or planets around 19 degrees of Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.
Taurus, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius should know that Uranus approaching 01 degrees Taurus is likely creating significant shifts, changes, adjustments, and even shocks for those born early Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius as well as for anyone with planets and points around 01 degrees of the above signs.
Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Pisces should know that Neptune approaching 17 degrees Pisces is likely bringing confusion, deception, and even debilitating situations for anyone born around the eighth of March, June, August, September, October, and December as well as for anyone with planets and points around 17 degrees of the above signs.
Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn should know that Pluto, the planet of transformation and new beginnings at 23 degrees Capricorn, is likely producing significant changes for those born around the fourteenth of January, April, June, July, August, and October, and for anyone with planets or points around 23 degrees of the above signs.
The * Factors
Are significant for right timing because they are in effect for a more extended time (up to a week or more). 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 aspects become exact at the Eastern Times listed, but the influences can extend beyond these times.
Friday 02:37 PM + * (Sun in Aries 00 Chiron in Aries) this once a year solar aspect symbolizes success, opportunities, and men with special talents and abilities.
Sunday 01:21 PM + - * (Mercury in Pisces 00 Neptune in Pisces) this once a year Mercury aspect brings the potential for creativity, imagination, and artistic inspiration. It’s the world of dreams, fantasy, fiction, art, music, movies, drama, and the psychic. With this aspect active, you need to be careful with your thinking and assumptions. The imagination associated with Neptune can make things look too good to be true. The effects are subtle but real. Mercury is related to our thoughts and thinking. Neptune is related to imagination and creativity as well as confusion, deception, misrepresentation, faulty reasoning, and a lack of clarity.
Sunday 04:05 PM + * (Jupiter in Sagittarius 150 Node in Cancer) this Jupiter aspect favors teamwork, networking, and social interactions because it enhances cooperation, adaptiveness, and harmony.
The Lunar Aspects
Are less significant than the * factors listed above because they are in effect for only hours (versus days) before and until the Eastern Times given, but they are still quite relevant for right timing.
Friday, March 22
Five challenging lunar aspects and a long Void period.
12:25 AM - (Moon in Libra 150 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.
02:34 AM + (Moon in Libra 150 Mercury in Pisces) favors reflection, writing, and communication because this lunar aspect creates a more active exchange between the conscious and unconscious minds.
04:38 AM - (Moon in Libra 90 Saturn in Capricorn) this challenging aspect can create issues, worries, differences, and hard feelings, especially involving females and families.
10:29 AM - (Moon in Libra 90 Pluto in Capricorn) can create complicated interpersonal situations, especially involving females and family matters. There’s more likely to be subtle yet emotionally charged situations involving manipulation, hidden motives, and power struggles are more likely although these factors may not be fully realized until later.
12:41 PM + (Moon in Libra 90 Node in Cancer) favors connecting, networking, and reaching out to others because it enhances social interactions as well as any alliances with groups large and small.
12:51 PM - (Moon in Libra 150 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.
02:10 PM + (Moon in Libra 120 Venus in Aquarius) favors any social interaction because this aspect fosters cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
02:10 PM Moon in Libra Void until 10:16 PM when it enters the next sign, Scorpio, where it remains until Monday morning when it enters the next sign, Sagittarius.
11:36 PM - (Moon in Scorpio 180 Uranus in Taurus) increases instincts and willfulness but can also bring nervousness, anxiety, upsets, restlessness, excitability, volatility, and emotionally charged situations. With the money signs, Taurus and Scorpio, involved, there could be issues involving money and finances.
Saturday, March 23
Only one lunar aspect, and it’s positive.
01:09 PM + (Moon in Scorpio 45 Jupiter in Sagittarius) a minor aspect which favors meetings, interpersonal situations, and working with the public because this planetary combination increases the possibilities for kindness, benevolence, positive attitudes, shared feelings, and uplifting emotional support.
Sunday, March 24
One challenging lunar aspect and three favorable ones.
02:49 AM + (Moon in Scorpio 120 Neptune in Pisces) favors right brain activities such as healing, prayer, spirituality, mysticism, meditation, psychic phenomena, daydreaming, imagination, creativity, music, art, and other creative endeavors.
03:09 AM + (Moon in Scorpio 120 Mercury in Pisces) favors reflection, writing, and communication because this lunar aspect creates a more active exchange between the conscious and unconscious minds.
06:37 PM - (Moon in Scorpio 180 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 volatile emotions are more likely than rational thinking. With the money signs, Taurus and Scorpio, involved, there could be issues involving money and finances.
10:23 PM + (Moon in Scorpio 90 Venus in Aquarius) this lovely aspect is terrific for any social interaction because it fosters cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.
10:23 PM Moon in Scorpio Void until 02:05 AM Monday when it enters the next sign, Sagittarius.
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 (up to a week or more). 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 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.
