We begin this first week of March 2013 with a void of course Moon in Scorpio, but in rather short order we switch gears to an outgoing, yet waning Sagittarian Moon. This week we do a final tally on our win/loss ratios when the Last Quarter Moon checks in and then we get our career ducks in order when the Moon switches gear into Capricorn near mid-week. All in all, this isn’t going to be a week for loafers, so prepare to bring your game face to work and you’ll be good to go (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PST).
Sunday 3 March 2013 (1 Star): An insomnia inducing, early morning Moon-Mars trine at 1:19 AM is nothing to get excited about–especially if you’re on Pacific Standard Time. Remember to get out the melatonin and lavender before bed Saturday night; the Moon is void of course after that last aspect until 1:11 PM when it enters Sagittarius. Dealings with people at a distance, publishing concerns, legal situations or college studies are up for review during the next couple of days–maybe even some long distance travel if you’re lucky!
Moon square Neptune at 6:42 PM makes us prone to delusional or unclear thinking; combine this energy with Mercury being retrograde and it’s a good idea to avoid making decisions or signing agreements until a later date.
Moon in Sagittarius colors: Mauve, black, royal blue, gold, indigo or turquoise. Crystals: Lapis lazuli, amethyst, malachite, sugilite, obsidian, turquoise or zircon. Incense/Essential oils: Copal, frankincense, sandalwood, rosemary or dragon’s blood.
Monday 4 March 2013 (2 Stars): Although we have a gaggle of aspects today, only two are remotely helpful–well make that one. The Moon trine Uranus at 1:19 AM is another insomnia inducing challenge, bringing shocks and unwelcome, early morning surprises home to roost (hope you didn’t put the lavender or melatonin away just yet). Money and love worries may interfere with a peaceful night’s sleep thanks to a Moon-Venus square at 2:45 AM and we may have overshot our budget (or just shot off our mouth) when the Moon opposes Jupiter at 3:00 AM; either way, chicks of all sorts may be coming home to roost in the wee hours of the morning.
Creative communications may help you sort through the mess when the Sun conjoins Mercury in other worldly Pisces, that is if you’re up 4:58 AM; you might want to set an intention for clever solutions to present themselves during your dream state (hey, it can’t hurt, right?). Venus square Jupiter at 5:53 AM is another hint from the Universe that there’s trouble with our finances or our love lives at this time and the Moon square Mercury at 12:41 PM suggests we have to deal with some rather challenging communications around some of these matters at this time. We wrap up this day ruminating on our wins and losses during this lunar cycle as the Last Quarter Moon arrives at 12:51 PM (Moon square the Sun at 21 degrees of Pisces). Pat yourself on the back for projects completed and make plans to reboot languishing projects at the New Moon…
Tuesday 5 March 2013 (1 Star): An early morning square between the Moon and Mars at 7:28 AM suggests grumpy folks will get out of the bed on the wrong side–and follow you into the office (driving badly all the while, so watch out). The Moon will be void of course after that aspect and will enter Capricorn at 4:14 PM; time for you to look at self-realization and career issues–are you where you want to be in life, that’s the question before you till Thursday evening.
A late in the day sextile between the Moon and Neptune 9:51 PM suggests reinvigorating your spirits via the arts (music, dance, movies, art) or just making time to enjoy a deep meditation may ease your stress before you head off to bed.
Moon in Capricorn colors: Black, dark brown, royal blue, dark blue, dark green, violet or gray. Crystals: Malachite, amethyst, obsidian, jet, garnet, diamond, black opal or black diamond. Incense/Essential oils: Jasmine, mint, musk, or patchouli.
Wednesday 6 March 2013 (5 Stars): Ten aspects in total today–and nine of them are positive, for the most part. Capricorn isn’t known as a frivolous sign, so it will be a business oriented day, but that just means it’s time to look at career matters and make solid changes for a better future. We begin with the one really challenging aspect of the day, a square between the Moon and Uranus at 4:28 AM. Be prepared to deal with early morning shocking news or off the wall behavior from some quarter. Look at it this way, Capricorn is a hard working sign, so it gets you up and on your toes early.
A sextile between the Moon and and Venus at 10:36 AM offers a bit of a boost in the love/money life sectors while a Moon-Pluto conjunction at 11:15 AM says pitch the boss or make that presentation to the big wig and see if you can leverage your talents for a more powerful return. Organization, clean-up and planning tasks benefit from a sextile between the Moon and Saturn at 11:22 AM; clean up communication projects when the Moon forms a sextile to Mercury at 12:08 PM. See, I told you it was going to be a busy day!
Venus sextile Pluto at 6:06 PM suggests your finances need some thoughtful reorganization; Venus forms a trine to Saturn at 7:07 PM and it may be time to trim the fat out of the budget or other wise get real where your money is concerned. That last aspect might take the wind out of the sails of your love life as Saturn is stern and not overly friendly where affairs of the heart are concerned. Best to postpone that romantic evening until a better day (unless you can afford to take your love to a top tier eatery–but that last aspect suggests maybe you should just chill for now).
The Moon sextile the Sun at 8:37 PM offers intuitive insights into your circumstances and you may be able to put together an action plan to make use of them at a later date. Mercury conjoins Venus at 8:54; confess your feelings for your lover or have a frank discussion about money–which ever fits your situation best at this time. Lastly, Mercury trines Saturn at 11:17 PM; weighty matters might be disturbing our peace of mind; a bit of light yoga may help you to decompress and leave the worries of the day behind before you head to bed.
Thursday 6 March 2013 (3 Star day): Mercury sextile Pluto at 12:26 AM may set your mental wheels spinning rather than offering you the quiet you need for a good night’s sleep. Either that or an errant phone call in the middle of the night may trouble your sleep; you know the drill, phone off and melatonin on. The Moon sextile Mars at 1:14 PM suggests a trip to the gym or a light walk during your lunch break might be beneficial. Note the Moon is void of course after that last aspect so avoid starting new projects until the Moon enters Aquarius at 7:02 PM. Group associations, deep desires and friendships are in focus under the waning energy of the Aquarian Moon until Saturday night.
Moon in Aquarius colors: Electric blue, fluorescent or iridescent shades, white, hot pink or silver. Crystals: Amethyst, aquamarine, labradorite, celestite, opal, pearl, lapis lazuli, or clear quartz. Incense/Essential oils: Frankincense, lavender, rosemary, sage, violet or sage.
Friday 7 March 2013 (3 Stars): Saturn sextile Pluto at 12:03 AM suggests struggles with depression or other dark thoughts can wreak havoc on a good night’s sleep. A bit of Qigong, meditation or light yoga can improve your mood and help you get off to a good night’s sleep. Some shocking bit of news, interesting creative download or other surprise may greet you early in the day as the Moon forms a sextile to Uranus at 7:29 AM. A happier, buoyant mood arrives when the Moon trines Jupiter at 9:34, but we run into another rough patch when the Moon squares Saturn at 2:08 PM; dour or depressing people will try to whammy your Friday ‘the weekend is almost here’ good mood–try to avoid falling prey to them if you can. The Moon is void of course after that last aspect until 10:19 PM Saturday; avoid starting new projects–if you absolutely must start a new deal while Mercury is retrograde and we’re in a waning Moon phase, at least wait until after the Moon changes signs.
Saturday 8 March 2013 (0 Stars): A lackluster, one dismal aspect day with Mercury squaring Jupiter at 7:38 PM; someone will likely jabber endlessly if you’re anywhere within hearing range…not much you can do about it or them, but the Moon switches signs to Pisces at 10:19 PM. Make time for creative pleasures (art, dance, music, movies, etc.,) and take some time for spiritual tune up work to help you move through the lovely Mercury retrograde challenges humanity is handling right now…
