March 23rd – 29th, 2015

This week is the first full week of the Spring season and no matter the weather we are likely to engage ourselves with a little ‘Spring fever’.

The week may begin with us filled with good intentions to be focused and productive on our routine activities and new projects. Our concentration might be short-lived, however, as various distractions arise to tantalize and steer our attention away into a whirlwind of possibilities and activities. We may ‘talk the talk’ and less likely to ‘walk our talk’.

We could be juggling any number of things in the mid-week period but possibly without accomplishing a great deal. It can be more fun to speed up our pace, even if our direction is more of a zig-zag from one thing to another rather than a straight-line trajectory of completing any one thing.

The latter part of the week could have us attending to home and family matters. While we are looking to make nice with everyone, sore points can erupt with people more interested in what works for them personally rather than pursuing an interest in benefitting the common good.

Extravagance might be heightened as we come into the weekend. Tamping down any discord could lead us to trying to alleviate someone’s upset by throwing money, gifts and other ransom to assuage their feelings. Why go there when the final outcome can be a bottomless pit with someone wanting more than would be appropriate to the point of excess and with the final refrain liable to be ‘what have you done for me lately?’

Home projects and springtime activities can take up the first part of the weekend. As we come into Sunday, we are ready for fun and good times. We may block out someone’s insistent caterwauling in order to enjoy ourselves and re-create our vigor.

Monday, March 23rd – Get ‘Er Done – Jupiter, Pluto, Mercury, Moon Void-of-Course. Monday starts the week with good intentions and great expectations. We may have a great deal that we want to accomplish and we might assume that we can get more done than humanly possible. Monday begins the week with the Moon in Taurus and today the Moon squares Jupiter, the Moon trines Pluto and the Moon sextiles Mercury. We may be confident of our abilities, but it would be wise to prioritize our schedule. If we would focus on the most important projects to accomplish first, then we could take things step by step and go a long way towards achieving our goals. We might need to lower our expectations with the realization that in our mind’s eye we can complete any number of projects in a short period of time when the actual procedure might take a great deal longer. We start the day with a good head of steam but as the day progresses we might find ourselves slowing down, operating on reserve power or running out of steam. Let’s keep in mind the need today to prioritize our involvements and strategize the ways by which we intend to accomplish our goals. After a fast-paced start to the day, the energy dies down as the Moon goes Void-of-Course for the next twenty-three hours with the Moon making no further connections to the planets as the Moon finishes its transit of Taurus and before the Moon enters Gemini tomorrow.

Tuesday, March 24th – Fashioning the Right Look – Moon Void-of-Course, Sun, Lunar T-Square, Saturn, Neptune, Venus. The day starts with the Moon Void-of-Course as the Moon finishes its transit of Taurus and before the Moon enters Gemini. With the Moon in Gemini today, the Moon sextiles the Sun and the Moon triggers a Mutable Sign T-Square as the Moon opposes Saturn and the Moon squares Neptune. Venus sextiles Neptune. We may be considering how best to present ourselves and we could be willing to purchase whatever we need to enhance our panache, provide us more style. We want to be looking good as we start this day, and we are likely to do whatever it takes. Presentation is one thing, reality another. As the day progresses, we could find ourselves shifting into high gear. A great number of things may draw our attention and enlist our interests. We just have to be certain not to bite off more than we can chew. With things picking up in the second half of the day, we could find ourselves juggling any number of things. Delays might frustrate us, especially if we are trying to handle too much in too short a period of time. While we may be pulled in different directions, old situations could demand attention and certain matters might prove to be not what they seem. Although the energy could prove frenetic, the more we can slow things down, take time to consider the consequences and even take into account likely unintended consequences, then we won’t get broadsided or tripped up by the increase in the pace and in the number of activities we are called to address.

Wednesday, Mach 25th – Brand New World – Jupiter, Uranus, Mercury, Sun, Saturn. Wednesday may be considered ‘hump’ day, but this Wednesday could have us skirting the ‘hump’ and changing our trajectory by shifting towards new directions and new interests. The Gemini Moon today sextiles Jupiter, the Moon sextiles Uranus and the Moon squares Mercury. The Sun trines Saturn. We may feel as though we have it all together and that we can engage fascinating scenarios which could come about both as a result of our enthusiasm and by the magic of mini-miracles of these times. This is a highly exciting day but we are unlikely to go off on a bender, chase illusions or be hoodwinked by appearances not being matched by reality. We may want to put our stamp on situations, and we can be quite confident about our abilities and appreciate the serendipity in the air. But we are also considering a best practices approach by which we can get from here to there. No leaping across chasms today, nor fording fathomless deep streams. We may be jazzed to explore and investigate, but this time we are likely to take a compass and the necessary supplies with us. We do have to be careful not to allow our intentions to be dampened by naysayers or our own anxieties. Let’s keep in mind the wise saying that ‘we never get more than we can handle.’

Thursday, March 26th – The Suspension Bridge – Mars, Moon Void-of-Course. Thursday begins with the Gemini Moon sextile Mars. The Moon then goes Void-of-Course for over seven hours with the Moon making no further connections to the planets as the Moon finishes its transit of Gemini and before the Moon enters Cancer later in the day. Whatever went on yesterday that piqued our curiosity and engaged our interest can give the beginning of this Thursday a thrust of energy as we continue down what might seem to be the yellow brick road towards what we could hope to be our own Emerald City. While we have a thrust of energy to begin the day, the energy dies down and later in the day we may seek the comforts of home and focus on family matters. Like the volatility of these times with their metronome-like swings, we can be highly adventurous at times and other times we may retreat back into the safety and sanctity of the familiar and the known. Yesterday and the early part of today can have us on the adventuresome bent, later today we might choose the comforts of the familiar.

Friday, March 27th – Doing What We Can and Then Some – Lunar T-Square, Sun, Pluto, Uranus, Neptune, Venus, Jupiter. Friday continues with the Cancer Moon and today the Moon trines Neptune, the Moon sextiles Venus and the Moon triggers a Mutable Sign T-Square with the Moon square both the Sun and Uranus in Aries and the Moon opposed Pluto in Capricorn. Venus squares Jupiter. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all lived in a perfect world? In truth, we do live in a perfect world if we would accept the perfection of imperfection. In the Japanese perspective of wabi-sabi, beauty and the aesthetic are in the acceptance of the ‘imperfect, impermanent and incomplete’. Life is like that, and we might find this Friday being one where we are trying to create a perfect, idyllic environment for ourselves and our loved ones, yet with the world intruding by throwing various curve balls, among which are ego tendencies of disrupting the natural state with self-centered patterns getting in the way of the idyllic. In our world, when we encounter problems, issues and irritations, our solution is often to throw money at the situation with the hope that by doing so we can make the problem go away. While the day may start pleasantly enough, there are various hiccups along the way that seem to grow in scope as we approach the evening hours. To soothe things over, we may go out of our way, even to the point of extreme generosity or extravagance, to make nice with those who are throwing their ego tantrums. Petulance is sorely an irritation, but appeasement and capitulation is hardly a solution. We need to maintain our cool today without trying to fix other people’s problems or engage other people’s inappropriate actions. Everybody needs to get a grip and act like mature grownups, if there are any left in our imperfect perfect world.

Saturday, March 28th – Lost in Thought – Mercury, Mars. Saturday continues with the Cancer Moon with the Moon trine Mercury and the Moon square Mars. We may want to spend time doing our springtime activities with family and around our home. If we have projects we wish to attend to around our home, this Saturday might be a good day to do so. We don’t want to venture too far afield today, would prefer to enjoy the sanctity of our own environment and get lost in thought. The early part of the day may have us taking it easy without putting a great deal of pressure on ourselves. Late in the day, the energy picks up and we might want to be more active, go out, do something that strikes our fancy. Although Sunday is often referred to as a ‘day of rest’, we might choose this Saturday as a day to take it easy, luxuriate and enjoy the comforts of home.

Sunday, March 29th – Social Activities and Fun Events – Lunar Grand Trine, Saturn, Sun. Sunday can be a fun day, a day when we are looking to enjoy ourselves, get together with family and friends and engage in recreational activities, sporting events or cultural performances. Sunday has the Moon in Leo and the Moon triggers the Fire Grand Trine with the Moon trine Saturn and the Moon trine Sun. We may have committed to some social engagement for today and if so, we could be pleasantly surprised as to how it turns out. Everyone is looking for some good times today, and we might find our involvement with a friend or loved one to be spirited and uplifting. This is a day when we can truly re-create ourselves, get a second wind and find some enjoyable activities to engage. Most people are likely to feel up and happy, so we can let down our guard and join in the festivities.
