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.
Mercury in Aries
Forecast Mar 6-19, 2023: Moving On
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 […]
Forecast Apr 12-18, 2021: Party Crashers
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.
Forecast Apr 5-11, 2021: Bubbling Up
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.
Forecast Mar 29-Apr 4, 2021: A Note Of Caution
Whatever this past weekend’s full Moon stirred up will take a few days to settle down. Though decidedly lighter than last week’s waxing Moon aspects, there’s a smoldering quality to most of the week’s astrology. That said, the Moon is now waning and several celestial bursts of inspiration are on the way. Most significantly amongst them, on Saturday Mercury will trade the ambiguity of Pisces for the impetuousness of Aries. That bold stroke alone will help us take a fresh look at some new opportunities. But first, Mercury has a meeting with Neptune on Monday.
