In the Stars March 3-10, 2024 . . . Shining Light on the Astrology of the Week



The Sun is now in Pisces, along with Saturn, and Neptune. Pisces symbolizes compassion and concern for the collective, as well as creativity, inspiration, and imagination. All planets are now direct, so the wind will be at your back during the month of March.


This week Mars makes a square to Uranus, tight Thursday through Sunday. This is an erratic, accident-prone aspect that is also innovative. Go carefully, and use the energy wisely to make breakthroughs and discoveries.

The Jupiter-Uranus conjunction is tightening. This week these planets are 6-8 degrees apart, moving toward an exact conjunction April 17-21. This aspect, occurring once every 13 years, is powerfully innovative and expansive. Now would be a great time to start an innovative project. Be expansive in your imagination about what is possible, as this spring holds great energy for invention and discovery.


This week contains a lot of void Moon time during the heart of the work day. So let’s review this concept. This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it is difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. When the Moon is void it is best to take the time to read, garden, or attend to routine, insignificant matters not requiring decisions or connections. You can usually feel this energy, as it is hard to decide what to do next.

Sunday’s planetary feature is a Venus-Uranus square that invites us to break out in new directions. The Sag Moon squares the Pisces Sun, expanding and scattering energy, inviting us to follow dreams and possibilities. This is a good day to imagine and plan a trip to a new place to explore.

 

Monday, March 4, is off to a slow start with the Moon squaring dreamy Neptune, marking the beginning of a void Moon period from 7:40 a.m.-1:40 p.m. PST. During this time, allow yourself to ease into the week, attending to routine tasks. At 1:40 p.m. PST the Moon moves into industrious Capricorn, and then it is time to engage with the work of the week ahead.

 

Family matters garner focus on Tuesday, March 5, as the Capricorn Moon conjuncts Ceres. The industrious Moon makes benefic aspects to Saturn, Jupiter, and Uranus, making the work day pleasant and productive, However, something unexpected may occur, or plans may go off course.

 

Wednesday morning, March 6, promises to be productive with the Moon in cardinal earth Capricorn. From 11:35 a.m.-4:38 p.m. PST the Moon is void of course, a time when connections do not come together and sound decisions are difficult to make. These hours are best spent tending to routine, insignificant tasks. At 4:38 p.m. PST the Moon moves into friendly Aquarius, conjuncting Pluto. The evening hours invite attention to humanitarian concerns and innovation. Take initiative for a good cause, and reach out to a friend who could benefit from your connection.

 

Mars squares Uranus Thursday through Sunday (exact Friday at 12:40 a.m. PST and on through Friday). This is an exciting, explosive energy that can result in creative breakthroughs as well as erratic accidents. Go carefully, especially as the Aquarius Moon conjuncts Mars and ignites this energy.  Over these days, consider what you are fired up about, and make plans for initiating a new project just after the New Moon on Sunday.

 

Mercury conjuncts Neptune on Friday, March 8, which is International Women’s Day. Honor a woman who inspires you. The Moon conjuncts Venus in Aquarius, supporting friendships, especially with women. The Moon is void of course for a long period from 10:55 a.m.-5:03 p.m. during which it is best to focus on routine tasks before it ingresses into Pisces at 5:03 p.m. PST. This is a sweet, soft, inspiring day, yet against the backdrop of the hard-edged Mars-Uranus square). Allow yourself a bit of extra time to drift and daydream, but watch your step. Friday evening invites us to watch a movie or listen to a concert.

 

Saturday, March 9, carries strong planetary energy. The Pisces Moon conjuncts Saturn, reminding us of responsibilities and commitments, and that there are limitations. Mars and Uranus are in a tight square, as they have been for a few days, and the Sun sextiles Uranus. These alignments encourage innovation, challenge restrictions. This would be a good day to work on a project, accessing the discipline of Saturn to get the work done, as well as the creative energy of the alignments with Uranus to solve problems and think of new methods and refinements. The Moon is dark, so we may want to take some solitude.

 

Daylight Savings Time begins Sunday, March 10, at 2:00 a.m. Move clocks forward one hour. A New Moon forms at 20:16 degrees of Pisces early Sunday morning at 1:00 a.m. PST. The Sun and the Moon conjunct Neptune, and sextile Uranus, giving intuition and inspiration. This is a day to create and express yourself through the arts. Mercury is now in the cardinal fire sign Aries, sparking imagination and enabling independent, enthusiastic thinking.

 

Venus moves into Pisces on Monday, March 11, where it is exalted, or best functioning. Venus in Pisces gives a sensitivity to beauty; here it is sweet and compassionate, and we are more in touch with our feelings. The Aries Moon invites us to get going on goals and projects for the week ahead. The Moon conjuncts Chiron, bringing us in touch with our healing needs and possibilities.

Moon Void of Course:

This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it is difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.
