We’re starting off strong with week with a powerful New Moon in Aries on Monday night, marking a time of springtime fertility and dynamic new beginnings. Don’t be surprised if you’re not experiencing the surge of energy characteristic of an Aries new moon when you start your day early Monday morning, as we will technically remain in the waning, dark phase of the moon until 9:57pm MST on Monday night. Pair that with a super mellow sextile between Mars and Neptune, and it is likely many of us won’t be feeling that newfound Aries motivation until we start the day on Tuesday.
Monday (3/27): The first New Moon following the Spring Equinox is always a particularly potent time of fertility, renewal and rebirth, and tonight’s New Moon in Aries is no exception. Monday night’s New Moon in Aries will launch us into dynamic new beginnings, but not before forcing us all to take a cold, hard look at our shortcomings and past mistakes.
While the New Moon is certainly the star of the show today, we also have a gentle, beneficial sextile forming between Mars and Neptune today. Under normal circumstances, Mars and Neptune don’t play well together as Neptune tends to dissolve all that it touches and in combination with Mars can weaken our willpower, immune system, and even our sex drive! While we can certainly be lacking in motivation under this influence, Mars in sextile to Neptune is a harmonious influence that brings many benefits. This transit allows us to interact with the world around us with greater compassion and sensitivity. Now is an excellent time for us all to channel our energy into endeavors that are more spiritually fulfilling and support the well-being of others.
Tuesday (3/28): No major planetary aspects today as we are still being ignited by the fiery energy of last night’s New Moon.
Wednesday (3/29): Mercury in Aries finally comes off of its triggering aspects to Uranus/Jupiter and Pluto this week and forms a beautiful, harmonious trine to Saturn in Sagittarius this afternoon. While trines tend to feel lighter and flow much more easily, with Saturn in the mix our thoughts and communications take on a more serious tone under this influence. This is an excellent transit for thinking through long-term plans and goals, getting organized, and focusing on the day-to-day communications and details that make up the larger picture. Coming off the dynamic New Moon energy, this is an excellent day to get down to business and put in the effort necessary in order to break free from the burden of limitation to bring our most optimistic and expansive long-term goals to fruition.
Thursday (3/30): No major planetary aspects today. The Moon is exalted in the earthy, sensual sign of Taurus throughout the day today.
I hope you all have an incredible week! Be sure to set some powerful intentions for the Aries New Moon and check back on Thursday for the weekend forecast! ☺
