On Monday, the dreamy energy we felt last week Wed – Sat continues with Sun conjunct Mercury (Pisces) which should brighten the day as well. Tuesday through Thursday is a time of healing, self regeneration and self-transcendence with Mercury sextile Pluto and Sun sextile Pluto. These are excellent aspects that give a lot of energy and stamina to work towards something really important in your life. Mercury square Saturn on Sunday makes us mentally rigid and challenged to think outside the box. Add the Full Moon and we are in a bit of crisis on Sunday.

On Sunday, A mentally challenging day when it’s hard to think outside of the box with Mercury square Saturn. We face a challenge to become the authority figures in our own thinking process. Add the Full Moon and we are in a bit of crisis today.
Great day to build something meant to last with Mars trine Saturn but with some emotional challenges along the way.
12:14am – Moon (Gemini) sextile Venus (Aires) Helps communication, but Venus is retrograde.
12:51am – Moon (Gemini) square Mercury (Pisces) Bad for communication and short trips. Easy to get lost. Hard to find a ride home. Be careful while driving late Saturday evening. Stay off the road.
3:32am – Moon (Gemini) square Sun (Pisces). This aspect make the Moon very active. Lots of communication, lots of feelings and emotions that can change rapidly. Hard to know how to feel. Also makes it hard to consider the feelings of others. Could lead to disagreements.
First Quarter Moon. This First Quarter Moon is the Gemini to Pisces square which is characterized as a crisis to expand your thinking (Gemini) to include things that you do not see (Pisces). The temptation is to use the rational mind to dismiss uncomfortable information that if considered, would force you to change your thinking.
You may find yourself being the target of someone’s inconsideration. The best use of this and the previous aspects is to do your spiritual (Pisces) work (square). If you are aware of energy (psychic), these squares can help let go of superficial or useless emotional (Moon) and unseen (Pisces) energies. We often absorb the energy of people and things around us like a sponge. When we become conscious of this invisible trait of physical reality, our perception about what we can do about it changes drastically. We’re not victims of the unseen (Pisces) anymore once we have information (Gemini) about it. These aspects give us the opportunity to do our spiritual work, to perceive beyond the mundane world, but we must consciously make the effort. Patience, kindness and consideration for others gives more spiritual (Pisces) transportation (Gemini) now. So this aspect could be uplifting or disappointing.
12:45pm – Mars (Aires) trine Saturn (Sagittarius). Today we want to do things that are meant to last a long time. Good day to buy practical things, stuff that you genuinely need. This aspect makes us want to look ahead as we go through our daily affairs and see how we can preserve ourselves into the future. The ego (Mars) is more mature today as we seek to incorporate something of lasting value into our lives. People are more agreeable, less likely to exhibit defiance or overt aggressive behavior. Relations with superiors and authority figures are better today. Good time to reach an agreement as egos are working towards practical goals.
Patience and persistence are the virtues that we are looking for today. Good day to work on projects that require patience and skill. Saturn causes the energy of Mars to be released in a slow steady stream that enables you to work until a task is completed and not worry about immediate personal gratification along the way. You need less work breaks.
Today the insight that we gained over this past week is applied to something that inspires us (Sagittarius) to make a bold new start (Aires), which will expand our identity in a structured (Saturn) way. A very good day to start a business venture, make plans for the future, make an agreement or build something meant to last, like construction projects.
3:12pm – Moon (Gemini) trine Jupiter (Libra) Very active Moon. Emotions come and go at a fast pace. Very talkative and congenial. Good for social gatherings.
3:50pm – Moon (Gemini) sextile Uranus (Aires) Intellectually stimulating and restless. Socially helpful and very aware. Psychic energy increases.
11:48pm – Moon (Gemini) opposition Saturn (Sagittarius) Feeling oppressed, but we may be getting intuition and feelings about the Mars trine Saturn aspect.
The compassionate and sensitive energy of Pisces envelopes us once again this week with Sun conjunct Mercury (Pisces). We are more spiritual today, more open to subtle influences around us and able to communicate with depth and wisdom.
12:22am – Moon (Gemini) sextile Mars (Aires). Middle of the night. Void of Course begins.
4:54am – Moon enters Cancer. Moon begins a new cycle in Cancer. Time to nurture yourself and others. We are more intuitive and sensitive for the next couple of days. The heart is more open and needs to be taken care of now or we crawl into a shell like the crab.
4:29pm – Sun conjunct Mercury (Pisces) This aspect is always a good one. It brings the light of the Sun into the conscious mind. We are more talkative, intelligent, opinionated, and curious. Our creative energy is very active and changeable, we can move easily from one thing to the next without much hesitation. Able to do two things at once. Good for juggling.
In Pisces, the quality of the day is sympathetic and warm, introspective and charitable. Our energy dissolves easily and we may feel lost, low on energy or just not motivated to do much. A really good day for writing poetry and anything that helps open in the mind. Today we don’t feel the need to be practical in our interactions with others, so that could liberate our energy a bit. We are more interested in spiritual matters and more in touch with the deeper meaning of things, how they make you feel.
We feel lots of creative energy today and need to express unconditional acceptance. This aspect makes for lots of business transactions. It should be a good day for business. This could be a very creative and productive day, especially if you can stay focused.
Moon in Cancer gives us a warm and caring morning, but afternoon is intense and could stir up insecurities. However, Mercury sextile Pluto gives us strong mental focus in the evening, a good time for study of esoteric subjects and for spiritual healing.
1:21am – Moon (Cancer) trine Neptune (Pisces) Feeling compassionate and warm. Good time to share your feelings with someone.
3:06am – Moon (Cancer) square Venus (Aires) Middle of the night.
10:48am – Moon (Cancer) trine Sun (Pisces). Feeling compassionate, creative and warm, wanting to share your feelings with someone.
12:12pm – Moon (Cancer) trine Mercury (Pisces). More of the same. Another good moment to share your feelings with someone.
1:28pm – Moon (Cancer) opposition Pluto (Capricorn). Feeling a strong need for self-preservation, makes digestion difficult. Could bring up repressed feelings of abandonment.
6:25pm – Moon (Cancer) square Jupiter (Libra). Emotions expand quickly, tendency to overeat or share your personal feelings too much.
7:33pm – Moon (Cancer) square Uranus (Aires) Emotions disconnect from others, aware of what you are not getting, brings up insecurities.
9:23pm – Mercury (Pisces) sextile Pluto (Capricorn) Strong mental focus, deep concentration. Interested in esoteric and spiritual healing. Able to share ideas with others. Desire to transcend self (4th quadrant) and learn something beyond your normal scope of interest. Adaptable (sextile) and forgiving (Pisces), this aspect could bring out some really interesting, even eccentric behavior, including philanthropy and altruistic acts. Interested in mystery and intrigue, a good movie or a good book.
This would a great time for doing something to develop your mind and give you some new found understanding about life. Pluto gives us the confidence to dig deep and Pisces gives us the hope that we will find something of value. And because it’s a sextile then you will, you just need to put in the effort. The openness of this aspect means that we are less judgmental and more curious. We want to know the inner workings of the mind and as well as the deeper meaning of life. For this reason, interest in psychic abilities is strong because eccentric insights and people do not cause discomfort. They stir the soul. We are less insecure, able to get over yourself, in the 4th quadrant of self-transcendence.
If you are looking to open someone’s mind and get them to see the big picture, now would be a good time. So if you have a friend who needs an education about what is going on in the world, like if they are unaware of Pizzagate, or Antarctica, or some other far-out topic that is normally outside of their range, now would be a good time to talk to them, maybe show them a video or two, open someone’s mind. All Pluto sextiles to inner planets offer a great opportunity to teach others.
Mercury sextile Pluto from yesterday evening and Sun sextile Pluto early tomorrow morning make today a day of self-transcendence. Good time for community gatherings, allowing your energy to merge with the collective. Great opportunity to get over yourself. Good time for drum circles and healing circles.
6:59am – Moon (Cancer) square Mars (Aires). The morning starts off with a quarrelsome aspect. People are very sure of their emotional needs and not willing to compromise. Void of Course begins.
8:45am – Moon enters Leo. We feel more creative and romantic for the next couple of days. Time to work on your hobbies and spend time with your children. We are more in touch with the heart.
This evening Sun sextile Pluto gives us a lot of energy and stamina to accomplish any task. Both of these aspects to Pluto encourage self regeneration, so mid-week is an excellent time for focused self-improvement.
The energy of self-transcendence continues today with Sun sextile Pluto.
12:29am – Sun (Pisces) sextile Pluto (Capricorn) Yet another 4th quadrant aspect just like the previous. And the interpretation is similar. This aspect brings a strong burst of energy to transcend self. It’s great for teaching. We want to utilize (Capricorn) our creative efforts (Sun) towards achieving greater flexibility. We are more concerned with money matters and making the most of what we have. We have greater self-confidence, less insecure with strong hopes for the future.
The energy of this aspect is great for solidifying your standing in the world through benevolent giving towards others. Not a time of ego-gratification, though we may feel tempted, it’s more a time of helping and teaching others.
With the timing of this aspect, Wednesday evening will be much like Tuesday evening, the same kind of energy. Both nights are a good time to be with friends and do stuff together as well as participating in community efforts. Drumming circles in particular on both of these nights! We all really need to feel part of the collective and participate in a committed (Pluto) way, one that enables us to merge our creative energy (Sun) with the collective (Pluto).
6:55am – Moon (Leo) trine Venus (Aires) A great time to express your feelings with your partner.
4:34pm – Mars enters Taurus. Until April 22, about 6 weeks. The energy of Mars does not adapt well in Taurus where it often expresses itself in defense of personal values. Mars is in it’s detriment in Taurus. The tendency is to want to dominate your personal space, even if others are in it. During this time we identify (Mars) with our personal possessions (Taurus). Our energy is a bit more sluggish, unwilling to get moving until we feel the need, and once we do, we charge like a bull. Taurus is sensual, so it’s good for sex. It’s also good for climbing hills, going on nature hikes, which is perfect timing for spring.
10:58pm – Moon (Leo) sextile Jupiter (Libra) Feeling really generous towards your partner this evening. Folks want to indulge.
A good day for work and business, although delay decisions until Moon enters Virgo in the afternoon.
12:41am – Moon (Leo) trine Uranus (Aires) Middle of the night.
9:05am – Moon (Leo) trine Saturn (Sagittarius). Inspired (fire trine) to delay gratification and work towards a better future. Void of Course begins.
2:07pm – Moon enters Virgo. More critical and helpful towards others for the next couple of days. Moon is active in Virgo and in need of continuous expression, so we need to put our energy towards something useful and practical. A good time to attend to details and work on your health regime.
3:22pm – Moon (Virgo) trine Mars (Taurus) Physical energy increases. A strong desire to work out and move energy is a specific way. Earth trine gives us ability to deal with earthly, material matters. Personal resources (Taurus) are used skillfully (Virgo). Very good for making use with what you have. Good time for business decisions.
We loose control of the subconscious mind as it floats away at Noon with Moon (Virgo) opposition Neptune. Lots of stuff comes up from the subconscious mind. The Full Moon is strongest tonight and this month we are in for a challenge.
12:09pm – Moon (Virgo) opposition Neptune (Pisces) Emotions and intuition (Moon) extend to meet anyone and everyone (Pisces). Very helpful and intuitive, able to sense the crisis in others and provide a remedy. Be careful of absorbing foreign energy. Digestive process is very sensitive and easy to upset. Eating warm meal, like soup, it helps.
The Full Moon happens tomorrow morning so it is strongest this evening. We have another challenging Full Moon this month which is characterized as a challenge to not block your psychic ability, believe in yourself, and understand what it means on a deep level to be the authority in your own thinking process and the responsibilities that entails.
A mentally challenging day when it’s hard to think outside of the box with Mercury square Saturn. We face a challenge to become the authority figures in our own thinking process. Add the Full Moon and we are in a bit of crisis today.
12:57am – Moon (Virgo) trine Pluto (Capricorn) Strong burst of energy late Saturday evening. Very discriminating emotional needs expressed with intensity (Pluto) and sobriety (Capricorn).
2:00am – Standard Time Ends, Daylight Savings Time Begins. Jump ahead 1 hour.
5:10am – Mercury (Pisces) square Saturn (Sagittarius) We may feel a bit mentally inadequate today and exhibit a strong need for structure in our thinking. Saturn slows down the mind (Mercury) and we feel a crisis to justify our opinions and deflect any criticism from others about what we think.
In these signs, we experience a crisis to overcome limitations to our thinking and adapt to new information. The tendency is to either adopt new ideas (Sagittarius) completely without discrimination (Pisces), or refuse to believe (Pisces) anything that you do not see (Sagittarius). We need to maintain reasonable limits on our thinking in order to stay functional but we must also stay open to things we do not see and remain hopeful.
When we are in a crisis, we often sacrifice something. In this case we may sacrifice career obligations, long-term needs, or abandon limits of respectability (Saturn) in order to maintain an opinion (Mercury) about something we do not see (Pisces) and therefore cannot justify rationally. Or we may sacrifice our thinking process (Mercury) by allowing some authority figure (Saturn) to do our thinking for us. The universe is forcing us to expand (Sagittarius) our thinking to include more. Either we do it to ourselves or it comes at us.
Insecurities about past mistakes take a toll on your thinking today and may inhibited you and cause you to think inside the box more than necessary out of fear of making another error. Mental rigidity comes from memories of the past when you fell short of your goals.
You may need to stand up for your opinions today or justify them in some way. It is a day of testing to see if your thinking is rational and can withstand the test of time. Thinking (Mercury) in terms of self-preservation and career goals (Saturn) overwhelms the mind and makes it hard to consider the needs of others (Pisces).
Despite the fact that Saturn slows down the thinking, these signs increase the thinking a lot. So there is a push-pull on the mind. We are forced to consider more, but it is essential that we consciously slow down the mind, double check ourselves, keep our thinking within reason and basically just become the authority figure (Saturn) in your own thinking process (Mercury). That is the highest and best use of this aspect. In this way you fulfill the goal of incorporating these two elements of self in a lasting way, one that will withstand the test of time (square) and give you security and solidity in your thinking.
7:54am – Moon (Virgo) opposition Sun (Pisces). Full Moon. Along the Virgo-Pisces axis our energy flows into the collective and the boundary between people dissolves. Our emotions are active, scrutinizing many things and carefully trying to find the boundary between self and not-self. But Pisces dissolves that boundary and we find ourselves confused until we learn to keep our feet planted firmly on the ground. It could be a potentially dangerous Full Moon by making it easier to attract someone unhealthy into your life. The helpful Virgo Moon, busy attending to details, can get caught off guard if you are too gullible or prefer to see the world through rose colored glasses. Then leave you feeling drained of vital energy. The trick is to rise above fear of the unknown, don’t project perfect images, instead try to observe, see a situation for what it really is, not what you want it to be. If you do, you’re more psychic, able to tune in to the deeper meaning of an issue or person in your life, and better able to handle the unknown (Pisces).
The things is, society trains people to deny their psychic ability. The establishment teachs you how to self-sabotage your own abilities because they can’t watch over you all the time. This Full Moon brings that out a lot because of the concurrent Mercury square Saturn. So we are going to feel inhibited about using our intuitive faculties. Becoming the authority in your own thinking process does not mean cutting off your intuition, in fact, it should mean the exact opposite. Tell yourself it’s acceptable to be sensitive and deeply perceptive. Let go of insecurities about past missteps. This will stop you from needing others to follow your thinking. Instead, be quietly confident with your ability to read the impressions coming up from the subconscious mind that tell you something about your life, or the person you are with or the situation you are in. The best way to handle this Full Moon, and all the rest, is to not block your psychic ability, believe in yourself, understand what it means on a deep level to be the authority in your own thinking process and the responsibilities that entails.
5:25pm – Moon (Virgo) square Saturn (Sagittarius) Feelings limited, be satisfied with what you have.
7:36pm – Moon (Virgo) opposition Mercury (Pisces). Hard to contain your own emotions and thoughts. They seem to drift far and wide. Confusion, ego-denial. This is a moment to be helpful and not too concerned about your own needs.
That’s all for this weeks’ aspects.
Interesting Stories this week:
The new attorney general seems to be on a power trip. Pluto opposition Ascendant and Pluto conjunct Moon. You can really see it in his stance towards liberal Marijuana laws. When Pluto comes above the horizon you want to show the world how powerful you are. For him that means he wants to continue the insane drug war. Pluto conjunct Moon gives an intense committment towards manifesting his subconscious desire (Moon) to be the authority (Capricorn). It brings powerful forces to bear on your personal life from many sources, some from outside yourself.
But also notice Mars and Uranus quincunx Venus. For him it’s manifesting as a compulsion to project his ego (Mars) and his idea of freedom (Uranus) onto others (Venus).
He may try to justify what he’s doing but really it’s all to make money for the prison industry. If the drug war ended like most Americans want it to, the prison population would be cut in half and that would reduce revenue for prisons and guards. He even wants to continue the use of private prisons.
With these transits, he should be making a precise adjustment (quincunx) towards bringing more enlightenment (Uranus) and encouragement (Mars) towards others, not more domineering (Mars) authority. Quincunxes require that you do the right thing, something that is helpful (Virgo) and is good for the community (Scorpio). He should focus his new found authority towards arresting the pedophiles.
Nonetheless, it makes a good transition to the next topic, which is the coming Jupiter (Libra) square Pluto (Capricorn) on March 30th at 19degrees. I’ve talked about this aspect a bit. It too is an aspect which promises to unearth (Capricorn squares) karmic truths. In this case things regard excessive (Jupiter) Pluto-like behavior face powerful judgment.
This could mean everything from drug (Pluto) use or excessive sexual (Pluto) behavior. Wherever people are using the power of the collective for personal gain.
During this month as we lead up to the second pass of this aspect, more issues regarding excessive behavior will come to the surface.
The law (Jupiter) and the underworld (Pluto) are sure to collide producing a karmic settlement. Uncomfortable truths come to the surface. This is the part of the new paradigm which incorporates more structure (Capricorn) into the law.
However, Pluto in Capricorn demands that these actions are practical and any subversive elements to their actions have karmic repercussions.
Interesting to note is that on March 30, USA has Neptune trine Sun. Honestly no one is in the mood to put more people in jail on this transit. So let’s hope Sessions does not get his way. I’ll go into more detail about all of this as the month progresses.
That’s all for this week. Once again, thanks for viewing Weekly Astrology Notes. Thanks for liking my video. Please leave comments and please subscribe to my channel. Have a good day.
