Weekly Astrology Notes March 12-19, 2017
Notes: Times shown in Pacific Daylight Time (PDT).
Weekly Summary: It looks to be a bit of a challenging week ahead. On Sunday, we start the week with Mercury square Saturn which gives a challenge to think outside of the box. Mercury enters Aires on Monday. Then we have some intense Scorpio energy in the middle of the week. Tuesday is a roller coaster ride, down, up then down again. Wednesday we are moody and struggling to find emotional security with Moon in Scorpio. Wed-Fri is a good time for home repair. Thursday is deep and profound with Moon in Scorpio giving us some healing aspects. Sun square Saturn on Friday and we feel low on energy and hard to move, like a wet blanket has been thrown on top of you.
But then on Saturday, a big change in the energy. A very positive and inspirational day with Mercury conjunct Venus. Diplomacy and awareness of others makes today great for all one-to-one communication. Finally on Sunday, a liberating day with Moon (Sagittarius) making two enlivening aspects to bring some excitement into your Sunday afternoon. Good time for social gatherings. So don’t let challenges during the week spoil your plans for a great weekend.
My sense is this is a challenging week as economic worries predominate in the news. Expansion plans get a reality check as people see the economic forecast is not what they had hoped for.
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.
On Monday, Mercury enters Aires today and we identify with our ideas and opinions. Everyone’s a politician today.
On Tuesday, A bit of an emotional roller coaster today with contrasting Moon aspects, all separate from each other. Challenging in the morning, great in the afternoon, then challenging again in the evening. Today we may feel vulnerable to both the good and the bad in others. Relationships could be a source of conflict today.
On Wednesday, Today we are moody and struggling to find emotional security with Moon in Scorpio. Good day for home repair.
On Thursday, A profound day with Moon in Scorpio with more healing aspects.
On Friday, Sun square Saturn on Friday and we feel low on energy and hard to move, like a wet blanket has been thrown on top of you.
On Saturday, A big change in the energy. A very positive and inspirational day with Mercury conjunct Venus. Diplomacy and awareness of others makes today great for all one-to-one communication.
On Sunday, a liberating day with Moon (Sagittarius) making two enlivening aspects to bring some excitement into your Sunday afternoon. Good time for social gatherings.
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 structured 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).
When we are in a crisis, we often sacrifice something. In this case we may sacrifice career obligations, long-term needs, or abandon better judgment (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. 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.
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. This is not your typical Mercury square Saturn. You may come up with a lot of good ideas today or accomplish a lot of difficult mental tasks. This aspect is great for tasks that require hard work and concentration. It’s good for building something.
In these signs, we are compelled 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, 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 teaches 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). Adds to the Full Moon energy. 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.
Mercury enters Aires today and we identify with our ideas and opinions. Everyone’s a politician today.
2:08pm – Mercury enters Aires. 2 ½ week, until March 31. Communication takes on the qualities of Aires, which likes to be first, domineering, strong but lacks sustained drive. Likes to debate, but can change directions quickly. 11th or Aquarius step for Mercury which begins with Gemini, so Mercury in Aires says “I know (Aquarius) what I think (Gemini)” and is not easily swayed by others, yet reserves the right to change their own mind. Can be very witty and do something surprising. Mercury will be busy in Aires. Conjunct Venus 3/18, square Pluto 3/23, opposition Jupiter 3/24, conjunct Uranus 3/26 and trine Saturn on 3/29. So expect politics (Mercury) to go through a time of much upheaval and change. Lots of talk about the new paradigm. A period of rapidly evolving conscious awareness. We will all do a lot of learning during this time. To the extend that we identify (Aires) with our opinions (Mercury), we change along with our opinions. My sense is that this confluence of aspects will encourage people to change a lot during this time, but only if they want to.
7:41pm – Moon (Libra) opposition Venus (Aires) With Moon (Libra) we are not feeling beautiful in this moment and it brings up insecurities. Folks are extra-sensitive, hard to find balance.
A bit of an emotional roller coaster today with contrasting Moon aspects, all separate from each other. Challenging in the morning, great in the afternoon, then challenging again in the evening. Today we may feel vulnerable to both the good and the bad in others. Relationships could be a source of conflict today.
10:51am – Moon (Libra) square Pluto (Capricorn) Feeling isolated and defensive. Good for working alone and getting a lot done, but brings disruptive forces to the surface that makes us want to sever emotional connections.
2:52pm – Moon conjunct Jupiter (Libra) Now for the contrast. Emotions expand and we feel like expressing the milk of human kindness. Idealistic with high expectations. Very forgiving, congenial and agreeable, good for social gatherings.
6:05pm – Moon (Libra) opposition Uranus (Aires) Feeling erratic and unpredictable. Not a good time to make decisions. Curious attraction to strange people and things. Not a good time to be in a crowd, you may not like the people you meet.
Today we are moody and struggling to find emotional security with Moon in Scorpio. Good day for home repair.
3:05am – Moon (Libra) sextile Saturn (Sagittarius). Middle of the night. Void of Course begins.
8:11am – Moon enters Scorpio. For the next couple of days emotions tend to go under the surface and stew where they could explode like a volcano. Moon is in it’s detriment, brings up insecurities. Passionate desires, intense emotions that overwhelm like possessiveness, strong commitment to do what’s right for the good of everyone concerned. It brings up aggressive behavior in some folks. The energy is good for home (Moon) improvement projects.
4:38pm – Moon (Scorpio) opposition Mars (Taurus) A bit more intense than usual. Much like the Full Moon and note that both planets are in their detriment. Ego conflicts arise from a fixed attitude. Hard to make adjustments if you feel like the adjustment deprives you of what belongs to you. Some may get confused and think that collective resources (Scorpio) are their personal resources (Taurus).
A profound day with Moon in Scorpio giving us some healing aspects.
8:25am – Moon (Scorpio) trine Neptune (Pisces) The trine from Scorpio to Pisces is characterized as healing and transforming darkness (Scorpio) and turning it into an opportunity for growth which can be shared by everyone (Pisces). These trines enhance sensitivity, give an appreciation for the subtle and mysterious aspects of life.
Moon aspects last only a couple of hours, but if you’re open to it, see if the perfect remedy for a situation suddenly appears. With this aspect, sometimes just the right thing, like a savior (Pisces), appears to transform (Scorpio) a situation for the better.
10:05pm – Moon (Scorpio) sextile Pluto (Capricorn) The depths of emotion that this aspect brings can be a bit much, despite being a sextile. Emotional commitment creates powerful transformation that purges lower elements of consciousness. Brings up a lot of kundalini energy. Burns away sexual blockages.
St. Patrick’s Day. Sun square Saturn on Friday and we feel low on energy and hard to move, like a wet blanket has been thrown on top of you. Not a good day for alcohol consumption.
2:47pm – Sun (Pisces) square Saturn (Sagittarius) Last Sunday we experienced Mercury square Saturn, now it’s the Sun’s turn. In the same signs, so once again this week, 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). Just like last Sunday 3/12.
Once again we have a push-pull effect where the signs say expand but the aspect says contract. Makes for poor decision making ability. Not a good day for business decisions. People are not feeling expansive, like a wet blanket has been thrown over you. People may be more conservative and cautious than usual today.
You may be tested today or forced to defend your integrity. If so, understand that the universe is asking us to incorporate structure and dependability (Saturn) into our lives (Sun). If you lack those things, the tests you endure today may help point you in the right direction.
The Sun is in Pisces, which is about ego-denial, so it’s tempting to turn over authority in your life to someone else. Or you may find yourself burdened unfairly with the responsibilities of some authority figure who shifted responsibility onto you. This aspect challenges us to not give up hope and fall into the pit of despair and isolation.
A good time to seek counseling or to council a friend, maybe be the designated driver and give them a much needed ride home. Not a good day for alcohol consumption. Easier than usual to get inebriated. Folks are more susceptible to the effects of drugs and alcohol. Saturn square Pisces unearth things from deep within the subconscious. So use caution during your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.
With these signs, we feel the burden of other people’s perspectives. It’s as if, whenever we hear an opinion, we feel the need to resolve it in our own mind. Let go of the guilt. The best use of this aspect is to redefine and restructure your mental boundary for your own piece of mind and sanity. Don’t be afraid to modify your beliefs based on solid evidence, it means you are smarter today than yesterday.
We could see some political unrest today. Stay away from crazy people. Political extremists, left and right, feel the need to control and dominate today. Adopting the beliefs and behaviors of others would only be a burden. Instead, shore up your own thinking and bring structure to your own mind. If you do, you will develop the ability to discern spiritual truths with greater care and transcend personal limitations. You may prefer to be alone today if the energy gets too heavy.
I am thinking this could manifest as people being completely disappointed in authority figures. Because of the schizophrenic quality we could see folks get unhinged, blame others for their misery, etc. Could really bring the liberal social justice warriors out in full force. And with St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, people feel encouraged to abandon better judgment (Saturn) and these signs have no boundaries, so there’s no brakes. As an astrologer I feel my best work is help folks avoid a potentially bad situation, and this is certainly one of them.
2:56pm – Moon (Scorpio) trine Sun (Pisces). Little miracles happen on the Scorpio to Pisces trine. Always a creative aspect. This trine gives enhanced insight into your creative talents that can liberate you from a creative block or insecurity. Void of Course begins.
8:00pm – Moon enters Sagittarius. We are more inspirational and a bit louder over the next couple of days. Sagittarius is idealistic and spontaneous and loves to run. Good time for physical exercise and traveling. Just in time for the weekend.
Mercury conjunct Venus happening exactly tomorrow morning begins to take effect on Friday evening, which is good because it could lighten up the energy.
A big change in the energy. A very positive and inspirational day with Mercury conjunct Venus. Balance, diplomacy and awareness of others makes today great for all one-to-one communication.
5:26am -Mercury conjunct Venus(retro) (Aires) Always a nice aspect that makes communication (Mercury) balanced and diplomatic (Libra). Mercury makes us consciously aware of others (Venus) so we are more congenial and willing to listen.
This aspect is very inspirational and produces a lot of creative energy. Mercury and Venus get along very well. Venus rules Libra, the 5th step for Mercury, and Mercury rules Gemini, the 9th step for Venus. Both are rulers of air signs that feed the fire of inspiration and creativity when they meet. It’s like when your cousins visit for the holidays. Release of inhibitions. Not a time for serious thought, more a time of lighthearted conversation and concern for beauty, harmony, love and relationships. A great aspect for a party or social gathering, no one is too shy to speak today.
It’s easier than usual to find agreements with others because today we feel the need to be in agreement. Our sense of self is dependent on the ability to find agreement with others. So it’s a great day to resolve your differences with another as well a make an agreement. Both sides will feel their needs are being met. A great aspect for relationships as well. Existing relationships get more vitality and youthfulness and new relationships that begin now have a friendly quality that makes it easy to get along.
So wonderful that this aspect happens at the start of the weekend. Travel plans (Mercury) work out more smoothly, so it’s a good time for a weekend vacation, especially since Moon is in Sagittarius.
1:59pm – Moon (Sagittarius) trine Venus (Aires) A pleasant and inspirational aspect.
4:06pm – Moon (Sagittarius) trine Mercury (Aires) Good time to share your feelings. Plans work out well.
8:57pm – Moon (Sagittarius) square Neptune (Pisces). We sense a crisis to believe. Makes us delusion and hard to feel the needs of others. Unrealistic attitude towards spirituality and religion.
A liberating day with Moon (Sagittarius) making two enlivening aspects to bring some excitement into your Sunday afternoon. Good time for social gatherings.
1:36pm – Moon (Sagittarius) sextile Jupiter (Libra) Feeling extra large. A healthy appetite and very forgiving attitude.
6:33pm – Moon (Sagittarius) trine Uranus (Aires) Looking for a change of pace, something interesting to stimulate the mind. Inspired to enlighten others, good for teaching and learning something new.
That’s all for this weeks’ aspects. Interesting Stories this week:
I have taken some criticism lately about my perspective regarding President Donald Trump. One viewer suggested I am not critical enough and another thinks I should be more supportive. But the issue is the times we are living in, not President Trump. Who he is and what he is like as a person only distracts from the issue. I am not really examining him as much as what he represents. The changes in the world power structure, including many elements of the deep state now being revealed means that his part in all of this is that of an uncharacteristic hero. It’s strange I understand, but it’s not him, it’s the events surrounding his Presidency that make him so.
I would like to introduce some very good links that you may find helpful in understanding what is going on right now.

A great synopsis on False Flag attacks. A must read for anyone who has a hard time understanding America’s secret role in the world and why we have so many intenational problems.42 ADMITTED False Flag Attacks
Just look at all the recent arrests and revelations. I am just as amazed as anyone about all of these recent events. And the most important issue for me is to keep spreading the word about what is happening to the children. This is all new information for me, learned over the past few months, since the Pizzagate story broke just before the election. The whole world seems to be infected by the scourge of pedophilia and worse. It pervades all of the powerful elites circles and is used as a means of control and even seen as a privilege. Humanity is waking up and I don’t think it is because of President Trump. It’s because of something much greater than that.
A fundamental shift is occurring in human consciousness right now. We now have global banking, global commerce, global travel and global communications. So what’s next? Global consciousness. This results in a universal raising of awareness. Humanity has never been to this place before so it seems frightening.
And we can follow it through astrology. To me, astrology is like an on-ramp to the highway of global consciousness, it helps me see the forest from the trees. I would like to ask my viewers, especially my subscribers to let me know how they are using this weekly report, what it’s giving you in your life and how has it improved your life in some way, however small. Please let me know.
