The energy of this week is colored by the need for more excitement, spontaneity and freedom in relationships with a passionate and impulsive conjunction between Venus and Uranus in Aries, all the while the Sun square Saturn highlights the need to work hard and remain responsible. For those who are feeling a bit too stuffy and serious due to being bogged down by restrictions and burdens that simply won’t stop piling up, solace may be found in experimenting with fun and unusual new activities in partnership this week!
Monday (3/26): No major planetary aspects. The Moon moves into the passionate, heart-centered sign of Leo today is in it’s waxing gibbous phase throughout the day. The Waxing Gibbous Moon phase marks a harmonious time in the lunar cycle when the intentions we seeded at the new moon are beginning to gain traction and grow to their fullness. The challenges we encountered during the first quarter square of the moon have been overcome and things begin to flow more easily. The Gibbous Moon is a time to clarify intentions and promote further growth and liberation from the failures of past cycles.
Tuesday (3/27): No major planetary aspects. The Moon in Leo makes a harmonious trine with retrograde Mercury in Aries early this morning, favoring communicating our feelings with others and using intuition to assist in making decisions more clearly. Self-expression is what the moon in Leo is all about. This is a time when our creative passions take center stage, and we can feel more confident and optimistic about our ambitions. In generous, outgoing Leo, celebrations and socializing are also favored as well as heartfelt connections and romance. This is a beautiful time to indulge in hobbies and play. There is a tendency with the moon in Leo for people to become more emotionally expressive and dramatic. People may be more susceptible to vanity, self-centeredness, and over inflation of the ego at this time.
Wednesday (3/28): The Moon in Leo makes harmonious aspects to both Venus and Uranus early this morning before going Void-of-Course at 2:54am MST. This aspect highlights the Venus/Uranus conjunction, which comes exact this afternoon, and the energy favors close, authentic connections with both individuals and groups. At 7:30am MST, the Moon moves into perfectionistic Virgo where it will remain for the next 2.5 days. The Moon will make beneficial trines to both Mars and Saturn late tonight, merging the practical energy of the Virgo Moon with the need to take action and work diligently toward our long-term goals.
Venus comes into conjunction with Uranus in Aries this evening, bringing excitement, disruptions and the potential for plenty of surprises when it comes to our relationships as well as our finances. Now is not the time to hold on too tightly to our partnerships, as people are more prone to feel caged in and suffocated by their relationships at this time. Freedom is important right now as well as the ability to maintain a sense of independence and individuality within our closest partnerships. This aspect can bring exciting, unexpected new developments in relationships and financial matters which may feel quite disruptive at first, but ultimately result in positive change. This energy is great for trying something new (and maybe a bit eccentric) with a partner, and not-so-great for impulsive spending.
Thursday (3/29): The Sun in Aries today comes into a challenging square with Saturn in Capricorn, bringing in a more serious and responsible energy. We may feel limited or burdened by the responsibilities we have willingly accepted as well as those that have been thrust on us by our superiors. People may be feeling much more serious, as we consciously take on a more realistic and businesslike perspective. This energy is excellent for diligent hard work, as it forces us to get down to the nitty gritty. Now is not the time to rush through things (especially with Mercury in retrograde as well), as Saturn teaches us to build a solid foundation for the future by doing things the RIGHT way, not the fast way.
The Moon in Virgo today opposes Neptune and makes a harmonious trine with Pluto, enhancing our compassion, intuition, and discernment in a grounded and practical manner. The Moon goes Void-of-Course at 9:59pm MST after making a supportive sextile to Jupiter, indicating that activities and undertakings initiated today are likely to instill optimism and have a beneficial outcome.
