This weekend kicks off with a intense and passionate square between Venus and Pluto on Friday, indicating the potential for power struggles, conflicts and the revealing of deep seeded fears and dark secrets in relationships. Luckily we have a lighthearted and playful Moon in Gemini, making only positive planetary aspects to balance out some of the moody Plutonian energy. With the Sun squaring Mars as well, anger is much more likely as tempers will be short and underlying frustrations bubble up into the forefront of our consciousness.
Friday (3/23): Venus in the passionate, fiery sign of Aries makes a challenging square to Pluto in Capricorn today, amping up the intensity in our relationships this weekend! As always with difficult aspects between Venus and Pluto, power struggles in relationships that have been swept under the rug or denied entirely are likely to bubble up to the surface to be hashed out once and for all. While this aspect can bring conflict, highlighting our deepest fears about our relationships, finances, appearance and self-worth, the end result may bring true empowerment, depth, and loyalty within our most important partnerships.
The Moon in Gemini makes only positive aspects to Mercury, Venus, and Uranus throughout the day today— sharpening our minds and emotional understanding while lightening the mood a bit (a needed boost with all of the deep, broody Pluto energy today!). The Moon goes Void-of-Course at 8:52pm MST and will remain VOC until late tonight.
Saturday (3/24): The Sun in Aries today comes into a difficult and intense square with Mars in Capricorn, bringing conflicts, irritations and frustrations to the forefront of our consciousness. This aspect may bring tests of strength and willpower as well as conflicts with father-figures and those in leadership positions. If you’re feeling more aggressive and temperamental throughout the day today (most likely for those with a lot of energy in the cardinal signs—Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn), this energy is best channeled into productive physical action and activity. Sitting still can drive a person crazy under this influence, making today an ideal day to get out and move!
The Moon today goes into it’s home sign of Cancer at 1:53am MST, where it will remain for the next 2.5 days. Today also marks the first quarter square of the Moon, symbolizing a crisis of commitment to intentions seeded at the time of last weekend’s New Moon in Pisces. This is a time where we may feel disappointed with our progress thus far and old baggage from past cycles may come into conflict with what is being created in the present. The key here is to let go of old, limiting beliefs and psychological patterns that are holding us back. Emotional baggage from the past can leave us feeling stuck at this time, and this is an excellent time to clear away old wounds as they surface. The key here is to push through and not allow oneself to be held back by the events of the past. If used correctly, this can be a potent time of action and opportunity.
Sunday (3/25): No major planetary aspects. The Moon is transiting the watery, nurturing sign of Cancer throughout the day making a mixed bag of both positive and challenging aspects to Neptune, Mercury, Pluto, Jupiter, Venus and Uranus, indicating a busy day with many emotional ups and downs!
The Moon goes Void-of-Course in Cancer late tonight at 11:58pm, where it will remain until early Monday morning.
