Facing Facts, Finding a Path through Pain & All Eyes on the Spring Equinox

It’s been a long cold journey this year, but the blaze of the long awaited Spring Equinox is now just days away.This is the moment when the Sun enters Aries, his sign of “exaltation” (best placing), the first sign of the zodiac and the official beginning of the astrological New Year. It’s fabulous for individuation – in other words, anything that gets you back to you, anything that reconnects you with your sense of self, a healthy ego state, positive self esteem and a sense of entitlement.

Finding Others in your Chart, Mars enters Gemini & the Mercury – Jupiter Finale

It’s a great week for getting involved online with anything work or social or love related as Uranus rules groups and technology, and Saturn is strong in Aquarius, his own sign and also the sign co-ruled by Uranus.  Mars entering Gemini, sign of the Twins, is also brilliant for putting yourself back in circulation even if it’s only in a virtual way and for recognizing choices.

Princess Latifa, Mercury on the Move, Mars – Pluto Closure & Venus New Cycle

Mars and Pluto coming together is not the easiest of combinations so look out for the situations or events that require you to be tough. If you’re in a failing relationship this is likely to be an extremely testing week but it’s really important not to allow yourself to be bullied or overpowered in any way by someone else’s behavior. I would avoid the trap of thinking that you have to “try harder”. Any relationship that is just hard work needs to be questioned.

The Saturn – Uranus Clashes & Conflicts, Mercury’s Turnaround & Getting Back on Track

The Saturn – Uranus square is not easy, but this combination is like The Tower in the tarot. Something disintegrates, something can no longer continue in its existing structure, something’s gotta give. And as this first square forms with a stationary direct Mercury it indicates a tipping point, in our own decisions or in the shape of decisions that are made for us.
