• Astrology During Aries

    The Sun enters the sign of Aries on March 20th at 3:00 p.m., Mountain Time. Aries is a fire sign and is associated with Mars, the warrior. Aries is the initiator of the Zodiac and reminds me of the Big Bang, which supposedly was the beginning of everything. This dynamic sign talks fast, drives fast and obviously, doesn’t have a lot of patience with anything. Yes, coffee is the drug of choice for Aries.

    How perfect it is that the beginning of the astrological year is Aries as well as the Spring Equinox. The first day of spring is zero degrees Aries, every year. So Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and begins the year. That means Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac and ends the year. Somehow that is also perfect. Winter has ended and the new spring flowers are blooming, heralding the new season.

    This Spring Equinox is pretty special because it coincides with the Full Moon, which is always in the opposite sign as the Sun. But this isn’t just a normal Full Moon, but it’s a Super Moon, which means that it will be closer to the Earth and therefore larger than a normal Full Moon. So this will be a Super Full Moon in Libra, the sign of relationships. Libra is the diplomat of the Zodiac and it is a positive indication to start the new astrological year with a sweet Super Full Moon.

    This astrological new year also starts out with Mercury retrograde.  Mercury turned retrograde on March 6th and will turn direct on March 28th. This time Mercury is turning backwards in the sign of Pisces. Be kind to yourself during this one. You might have a harder time making up your mind during this retrograde. But you will feel quite creative, so that might be a better focus than making any decisions using logic. Trust your intuition instead.

    The month of Aries also started with the slow planet, Uranus, having just entered the sign of Taurus. Uranus will remain in Taurus until 2026, so it’s a big deal and will change the world as we know it. Uranus is about sudden change and Taurus doesn’t like change very much at all --- so it’s an odd combination. The odd couple. This is the very beginning of a major evolution in humanity. We can all expects surprises.

    Regarding the visible planets, everything is happening in the predawn sky now. So if you get up about ½ hour before sunrise and look towards the east, you will have a real treat. You will see brilliant Venus, bright Jupiter and dim Saturn all along the Ecliptic arc in the sky. The Moon will go past them all from March 26th through April 2nd, to make them even more stunning. The only planet visible in the evening sky is Mars.

    See you next in Taurus!

Some positive planets are lining up to help you with your exercise regime or stepping up on your self-care. You know you want some pampering . . . maybe even a spa weekend. Be generous with yourself this month, dear Leo.

    Virgo

    During the first week in April you will feel a spurt of creativity. The other planets are supporting your Virgo Sun to use your imagination. This is not just about daydreaming but instead needs to produce something tangible. By the end of April, have a project you can actually show people. So this is putting creativity into action.

    Libra

    The Full Moon will be in your sign of Libra this month and it’s a pretty special Full Moon. It happens exactly on the Spring Equinox, which is the first day of the astrological New Year. What a great way to start the New Year with celebrating you! Give yourself something extra-special!

    Scorpio

    The last week in March is your magical time this month. Sometimes your Scorpio likes to dive deeply into your inner self. It’s like talking with your best friend. This will be one of those times that your wisdom will be easy to access and understand. You might want to keep a journal about this one . . . it might need to be put down in writing or it will disappear into the ethers as quickly as it appeared.

    Sagittarius

    The Sag in you likes to travel in your mind as well as in your body. The Moon will be in Sagittarius right next to your planet, Jupiter, the late part of March. If you are in the mood for a road trip, that is your time. Pick a destination that you have never experienced before. Be bold and a bit braver than normal. You have an adventure that’s all ready for the taking.

    Capricorn

    Your sign of Capricorn dominates the sky now, since there are so many planets grouped there. With a party in your sign, the entire world feels pretty Capricorny now. You, being an authentic Capricorn, can take the lead with others not only now, but for the next year or so. This is your phase in life to grow into yourself. What are your best traits and how can they come to the light?

    Aquarius

    Are you feeling impatient, Aquarius? Just ride with it because you are on the verge of an entirely new lifestyle. But it’s not quite time yet, which is why you are feeling a bit anxious. Use this energy instead to prepare for your next phase in life. This change will be a big one, so see this as your pre-production time. What is the most important thing you want to bring to the world?

    Pisces

    Mercury is almost finishing a retrograde that occurred in your sign. It started on March 6th and will be complete on March 27th. Retrogrades are the best times to rethink, release and regroup. Since Pisces rules the dream world, this might have been an emotional release instead of tossing clothes. You still have time to finish anything you want to let go of and it will be gone forever. Emotional house cleaning.      


  • Astrology During Libra

    The Sun enters the sign of Libra on September 22nd at 6:56 p.m., Mountain Time. Libra is an air sign and is associated with Venus, the planet of love. Libra is all about relationships. This sign just knows how to talk to people in a personal way. Libra, who is associated with Venus, loves the arts, music and social interactions with friends. A night on the town after an art gallery opening is a fun evening for Libra. That’s why I’m named this sign, The Lovely Libra.

    The sign of Libra always marks the Autumn or Fall Equinox. The year is divided up by four seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. Spring and Fall are named the Equinoxes while Summer and Winter are named the Solstices. On the Equinoxes, the Sun shines on both hemispheres equally, creating the day and night to be of equal lengths. The Solstices are the longest and shortest days of the year, depending if you are in the northern or southern hemisphere. Regardless, many celebrations occur on these seasons, like at Stonehenge. The Fall Equinox encourages rest and celebration after the crops have been harvested. The Full Moon on September 24th is the Harvest Moon. Many celebrations include apples and the root crops that were recently harvested. This is the time for gratitude for the abundance in your life.

    Venus will be doing a retrograde starting on October 6th and not ending until November 16th. Where Mercury retrogrades are matters of the mind; Venus retrogrades are matters of the heart. This retrograde of Venus is in intense Scorpio until October 25th and then finishes her retrograde in romantic Libra. All retrogrades are times to regroup, rethink and redo. This just happens to be on the inner realm. Many will be looking at their primary relationship in a new way. Change what isn’t working. Even though it’s not easy, it’s the time for change during Venus retrograde. Venus only does this once about every 1 ½ years, where Mercury retrogrades three times a year.

    Here is one of the tricks of astrology: the rarer the event, the more important it is. So a Venus retrograde is more important than Mercury retrograde. Don’t think you’ll miss this retrograde if you’re not in a relationship . . . it will still change you somehow. It might be a need to change up the art in your house. Or maybe you’re having a clothes crisis, which happens to me often. Are you in the mood for a new style or haircut? Do you want to paint that wall a bright color? These are all Venus retrograde questions. Instead of being surprised, plan for it so you can use those dates effectively. Have as much fun as you can!

    About the visible planets, this is another fabulous month of seeing them in the evening sky. Right after sunset you will see brilliant Venus above the western horizon. Make sure to watch Venus now, because as soon as she turns retrograde, she will disappear in the glow of the Sun. But now right above Venus is bright Jupiter. They are getting closer together and will reach their closest proximity to each other right before Venus does her retrograde. Their closest dates will be from September 22nd until October 5th.  The Moon will move past them both on from October 9th – 11th for a magnificent sight. It doesn’t get much better than this, folks!

    See you next month in Scorpio!
