Tuesday – March 20 – Sun enters Aries – The Vernal Equinox
If you notice a spring in your step, then that can be explained by the Sun’s energy illuminating our lives as it moves into energetic Aries. Happy Birthday Aries. In addition, the vernal equinox arrives just a little after midnight (Tuesday, March 20 at 1:14 A.M. EDT or Monday, March 19 at 10:14 P.M. PDT), joining Mercury and Uranus. There sure is a lot of Aries action taking place in the charts.
Thursday – March 22 – New Moon in Aries
A New Moon in Aries at just 2 ̊ means even more action is taking place in the sign of the warrior planet. Though all New Moons mean new beginnings, the fact that this New Moon is at the top of the zodiac in one of the most ambitious signs, means this would be a perfect time to state your New Moon wish to the universe. It’s a great time to start something new that requires energy and ambition. Wait – we’re not finished yet.
Saturday – March 24 – Sun conjuncts Uranus in Aries
When the Sun and Uranus combine energies, anything can happen. Limits are lifted. Use this energy to advance your creative projects or passions for a change to your future. Nothing is beyond imagination and imagination is the first step to forming reality.
Retrograde Mercury moves into Pisces
While Mercury is still in retrograde and it slips into Pisces, spend a little time imagining what could be. Pay attention to your dreams or ideas that you come up with in the quieter moments of the day – although with so much action in Aries this week, the quieter moments will be fewer than usual. Mercury goes direct again in Pisces on April 4th. If you paid attention to the ideas you came up with while it was in retrograde, you can them move forward with ideas – no will be calling you an April fool.
