Welcome to Spring! The Vernal Equinox was Saturday, March 20 at 2:37 AM Pacific time and 5:37 am Eastern Time. This is one of the two days each year where we have equal day and night. You might say it is the balancing point of the year like Fall Equinox in late September.
The Spring Equinox shows the Sun at the beginning of Aries, the beginning of the zodiacal year. Aries is about starting new things, taking risks, wanting to have new experiences and Aries energy is also an indicator of the need to get going, to get out of the winter doldrums and change it up. The need for communicating, visiting, and exchanging a lot of ideas with others is also part of the equation as there are a lot of planets in Gemini. Travel is often indicated by Gemini, but with the vaccine rollout, caution is still suggested as Pluto is the ‘lead’ planet in this configuration.
Pluto is about cautious choice. Asking pointed questions about what you might be encountering in new ventures is highly suggested. The need to get a quick answer is also highlighted as Mars (god of war) and Mercury are in the cross hairs of each other. Impatience is a highlight of this next week and that goes for watching when you get behind a wheel and need to get somewhere — in a hurry — suggestion: try to maintain some patience as you get behind the wheel.
Venus is still in Pisces and close to the Sun, so there are some lovely opportunities this week to reconnect with friends, call someone, and try to finally figure out a way in which to have that ‘special talk’ with someone special and discuss the direction of that same relationship—apply this to both professional and personal relations. Venus and Pluto are challenging each other and if you can keep the conversation objective rather than reactive — this could be a very constructive conversation, and anything is possible from this conversation.
Tuesday is the day communication may be a little chaotic or incomplete as your mind is coming up with all kinds of ideas and solutions. Because the Sun is in Aries, try to think ‘out’ the way through a project problem. Exercise patience in trying to determine solutions — not something easy for Aries energy. Be assured that Thursday or Friday when Venus conjoins the Sun, an elegant solution presents itself through a social connection or a friend. Next Saturday is March 27 and Passover begins heading into a Full Moon on that same day at 8̊ Libra. Sunday, March 28 is Palm Sunday, and we are now in the season of new beginnings.
