The next two weeks will have no shortage of astrological activity, and Mars-ruled Aries wouldn’t have it any other way. A Sun Jupiter conjunction, solar eclipse, the Sun’s ingress into Taurus and the start of Mercury’s next retrograde are all on their way. Adding to the collective buzz, Venus will kick off this cycle when she moves into busy Gemini late on the 10th.
Mercury in Aries
Aries always brings excitement to the table. Being the impulsive, impetuous force of creation, it simply can’t help but to provoke and initiate. It is the cardinal fire sign ruled by passionate, adventurous Mars, and consequently has an imperative to poke, probe and pioneer. This three week cycle begins with the Sun’s entrance into Aries on the 20th, and a new Aries Moon on the 21st. The Sun and Moon are signaling that something entirely new is at hand, and their presence in groundbreaking Aries is a fitting welcome for Pluto’s initial ingress into Aquarius, on March 23rd. Though it will be moving between Capricorn and Aquarius through November 2024, Pluto’s transit of Aquarius will last for over 20 years, making this week’s sign change an epochal event.
Some of the year’s biggest happenings in astrology will take place during March. The first major move is that of Saturn into Pisces on the 7th. Saturn’s ingress into the mutable water sign will take place under a full Moon in Virgo, the mutable earth sign. Not one to ever be left out of the […]
This week the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter will be behaving much like a crowd of rowdy spring breakers. Tactful Venus will step away from the ruckus when she heads into Taurus midweek, while Pluto prepares to crash a couple of the parties Aries is throwing. Like libations served to college students, the Aries sass and sauce will freely flow throughout the week.
This week begins with the Moon moving into Aquarius, and it ends with 2021’s new Moon in Aries. As most astrology enthusiasts know, Jupiter and Saturn are presently transiting inventive Aquarius. Those who keep an even closer watch are no doubt aware that the Sun, Mercury and Venus are currently in Aries and Mars is in Gemini. Aries is a fire sign and Aquarius and Gemini are air signs, and fire and air signs have positive polarity. This polarity is described as masculine, yang or outgoing and is shared by six of the twelve signs. When planets travel through signs of the same polarity, yin or yang, they can only create the agreeable conjunctions, trines and sextiles.
