Week of March 8th - 14th 2021
Monday / 8th
Monday we wake up with the Moon in determined Capricorn - it first makes an opportunistic connection with the Sun and Neptune in Pisces. But we double down on the rules and boundaries we have set for ourselves as the Moon conjoins Pluto later in the afternoon. This should feel like RESOLVE. Overall Monday could have a bit of a swing to it as we see the magical possibilities in the first part of the day and then become aware of the truth of the matter in the evening. Check in with yourself - are you letting your desire to escape reality mask the very real responsibilities of life in any way? Is there any situations in your life that seem too good to be true? Consult your intuition and communicate your goals and boundaries clearly today.
Tuesday / 9th
The Moon moves into Aquarius overnight and we wake up with a supportive trine to Warrior Mars in Gemini - if you have been needing a spark to move towards any goal, this is that spark. The Moon in Aquarius can have an emotionally detached but intellectual flair for thinking outside the box - so coupled with the trickster energy, we would do well to listen and learn from our surroundings during the morning. As minutes turn into hours, the Moon applies to a challenging Square aspect with shifty Uranus and a also a synergistic conjunction to responsible Saturn. This Moon transit will ignite the Saturn - Uranus square that has been and will be active all year. So, early afternoon into the evening has the propensity to bring in some emotional upheaval especially if we are feeling held back in any area or limited by Saturn. The tension between the desire for freedom and the desire to consciously and responsibly build towards our goals has both an oppressive and fevered quality. We are graciously granted a healing and supportive sextile between the Moon and Chiron in Aries that is helping us stand in our truth and autonomy. Remember, you have a right to be your unique self - focus on whatever is in alignment with that unique purpose.
Wednesday / 10th
The Moon is still in Aquarius and as we awake on Wednesday morning it joins up with the expansive and abundant energy of Jupiter. This typically means big emotions but because the Moon is in its balsamic waning phase, we may have big emotions but they may be more privately big. To add to the quiet and ethereal quality, the Sun meets up with diffusive and dreamy Neptune. This day may indeed seem like a dream and that is the best thing you can do with this specific type of energy: DREAM. And dream big! Let your imagination run - what goals will you be setting for this New Moon? Today is a good idea to brainstorm the possibilities as the Moon moves towards a conjunction with Mercury late that evening.
Thursday / 11th
The dreamy quality gets heavier today as the Moon moves into Pisces. If there ever was a time to make decisions - now is NOT that time. It IS however the time for Observation and Allowing. Why do I say this? The Moon is Void-of-Course most of the day, meaning it makes no aspects to any other planets which translates to not being able to accomplish much. The other reason is that Pisces as the overarching theme can be confusing and illusory. Overall it is best to lay low, connect with your spiritual, emotional, and mystic side. The first aspect the Moon makes is early evening and it is a challenging Square to Mars in Gemini. This could cause anxiety as we have the motivation and need to do something but we are lacking in the focus to do so. Take it easy on yourself!
Friday / 12th through Sunday /14th
Friday completely holds the mystical tone of the previous day. The Moon makes a challenging square to the Nodes early in the morning and this can have us questioning the path we are on. Pay attention to the stories you tell yourself during this time. If we can observe them for what they are we can allow the old narratives to just fade away into the Piscean mist. Late in the evening will feel magical as the Moon conjoins Venus. Again, don’t make any important decisions during this time. Escapism can be a major theme so be aware that you need to ground and check on the people around you. Many times this specific energy can invite one to over-indulge in all manner of things - keep it moderate!
The weekend is intensely mystical and dreamy with a New Moon in Pisces kicking it off Saturday Morning (5 am CST). The intentions you set on this day are some of the most potent this year because of the beneficial and magical presence of Venus and Neptune. This is not a New Moon to ignore, and if at all possible set intentions before 5 pm on Saturday when the Moon leaves the mist of Pisces. Sunday is for healing as the Moon has moved into Aries. It makes an opportunistic sextile to motivated Mars and also meets up with the wounded healer Chiron early in the morning. Making decisions that are best for our healing is the theme Sunday. It is helpful because we can be intellectually and emotionally aware of the best places to put our energy for the week ahead.

THESE ASTROLOGICAL INTERPRETATIONS ARE WRITTEN FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF CENTRAL STANDARD TIME & GEARED TOWARDS THE COLLECTIVE. ADJUST LOCAL TIMES ACCORDINGLY. KNOWING YOUR OWN CHART IS BEST WAY TO UNDERSTAND HOW THESE COLLECTIVE TRANSITS MIGHT AFFECT YOU PERSONALLY.
Week of March 1st - 7th 2021
Monday / 1st
We begin this week with the Moon, our emotional nature, in the harmony loving sign of Libra. That by itself can be nice and creative but we have the added bonus of a positive and supportive trine to the trickster Mercury and the Abundant King Jupiter, who are maintaining the birds eye view in Aquarius. This is brief but very auspicious as it can give us a feeling of expansion and hope.
Tuesday / 2nd
When we wake up Tuesday Morning, we may have a brief but intense and deep emotional dive into truth as the Moon makes a tense square to the Powerful and Probing Pluto. At the same time, Mars, which governs our will and ego, will have moved to the Anaretic degree. This is the 29th degree and it holds in it every lesson we have learned with Mars in the steady and sensuous sign of Taurus. If you have been low energy lately this would be a possible culprit and it will reach its heights while at this specific spot. So while we may feel like we are trudging through Mud, it is worth noting that Mars will break free from the sign based square it has had with the Task Master and Rule Maker - Saturn. We are almost there, and sometimes the last few steps seem to be the most challenging. To add to the intensity, The Moon moves to the Deep Emotional Waters of Scorpio later in the afternoon and we see how a few different areas of our life seem to be pulling on one another. How much am I worth (Uranus in Taurus), how much am I willing to share (Moon in Scorpio), and what are my goals for the future(Aquarius)?
Wednesday / 3rd
The Scorpio Moon is quite affected by several different transits in the wee hours of Wednesday morning and so we might wake up with the feeling that this is the most humpday of all humpdays. The Moon first makes a beautiful trine with Venus in Pisces as the receptive planet of love makes an opportunistic sextile to Uranus. Together, this should spark an intuitive awareness about a situation that you have been wanting to shift. The Moon then squares Saturn which forces us to look at the actual reality of the situation and what we can do about it within our own limits and structures. The Moon trines the Sun after Noon and Neptune late in the evening which together gives us an overall feeling of harmony between our emotional nature and our purpose. These shifts are only pushing you towards your destiny. The work with the Moon in Scorpio overall is deep and watch for the desire to Escape. If you feel like “getting out of reality”, use Creative Expression and Self-Care as that Magical Outlet. Smudge the house, chant, meditate, watch a documentary, take a nap! Fill your own cup.
Thursday / 4th
When you wake up, you might feel like a new person, because Mars will be in Gemini! YAY! Mars, the planet of action takes on a much busier, buzzier, frenetic energy in the communicative and thinking sign of Gemini. Its ok if you don’t feel a spark right off the bat though as the first part of the day the Moon is still in the deep waters of Scorpio. Perhaps during the first half of the day we are finishing the process of investigation and boy do we use what we have discovered as the Moon moves into Sagittarius and Opposes Mars in Gemini around dinner-time. Mercury also happens to be almost exactly conjunct Jupiter in Aquarius during this transit to the propensity to say things we don’t mean or speak a truth that someone else may not be ready or willing to hear is HIGH. I only tell you this so that you can make an informed decision during this transit and think before you speak. Depending on where you are at, it may be something that truly needs to be said - or something that truly needs to be kept to yourself.
Friday / 5th through Sunday / 7th
The Moon in optimistic and expansive Sagittarius comes into a tense Mutable Grand Cross mid-morning Friday with the Nodes in Gemini/Sag and Venus, the Sun, and Neptune in the ethereal diffusive sign of Pisces, and the keeper of the fire, Vesta in the focused and service oriented sign of Virgo. This is also the 3rd Quarter Square of the Moon and is the last adjustment of the Moon phase. I see this day as a re-imagining of our narrative. After the shift of Mars into Gemini we may feel spun around and disoriented so do not expect to see things extremely clearly on this day. So imagine those roots running deep and know that no matter how confusing reality seems at this time, that something is building in it. Some transmutation, some necessary dissolution. The thing about times like these is, the best thing we can do is surrender and let that metamorphosis occur. This tone is held through most of the weekend with the Moon in Sag and the Sun remaining square the nodes. Sunday will feel the most grounded with the Moon moving into Capricorn late Saturday night. Sunday morning we might awake with our feet on more solid ground and an increased ability to organize ourselves for the week ahead.
