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.
Mercury in Aries
Forecast Mar 22-28, 2021: Obstacle Course
This week a sequence of planetary squares and opposition will foment a series of struggles. In the wider context, we are heading into the revelatory force of a full Moon in harmonizing Libra. But before we receive its prized equilibrium and the restoration of peace, we’ll have to work through some serious discord, in one form or another. No matter the modality, cardinal, fixed or mutable, the call for resolution will be constant and pervasive, as conflicts will present themselves in a variety of manners and venues.
Forecast Mar 15-21, 2021: On The Move
This week will see Mercury delve into watery Pisces while the Sun and Venus venture into trailblazing Aries. Monday morning’s upbeat sextile between the budding Aries Moon and optimistic Jupiter sets the tone for a week brimming with productivity and encouragement. Aries is all about bold exploration, and Monday’s Moon will give us a sample of the incoming transits. However, Mercury’s descent into reflective, relaxed Pisces, on the 15th, will subdue some of the ferocity, at least until April 3rd when the Messenger also enters the cardinal fire sign.
Forecast Apr 27-May 3, 2020: Down To Earth & Back To Work
Talkative Mercury enters the tactile and tangible realms of earthy Taurus this week, turning conversations to money, material assets and physical well-being. The planet of communication in fact gets the week started on Monday by leaving impulsive Aries and moving into grounding Taurus. On Tuesday there’s a struggle with Saturn. But a conjunction with game-changing Uranus on Thursday is set to break up any gridlock and to reveal alternative pathways. As astrology’s fixed earth sign, Taurus values what it can see, smell, taste and touch.
Forecast Apr 13-19, 2020: Shakeups, Breakups and Wake Ups!
From the most robust territory of the cardinal fire sign, the Aries Sun will square Pluto on Tuesday and Jupiter on Wednesday. Those two are of course presently entrenched in Capricorn, the sign of governments, banking and economic systems. It’s hard to say what will shake out from these confrontations, but it’s fair to say that a whole lot of shaking will be going on
