Sunday 3/6/16 3 of Pentacles (Reversed)
Moon in Aquarius
The Three of Pentacles reversed asks you to take a look at matters of prosperity and abundance in your life and see if you’re on the right track. If not, it may be because you haven’t set clear plans for how to get to where you want to be. This reflection will most likely be brought on by the reflective, meditative energy of Moon sextile Saturn at 12:01 PM PST. Moon sextile Uranus at 4:11 PM PST may leave you restless and craving excitement. You’re likely to have a breakthrough at 8:38 PM PST with sun sextile Pluto. You’ll gain important insight into how to problem solve on the issues you contemplated earlier in the day. Doing a little cleaning around the house could open up pathways for breakthroughs. Moon is in the revolutionary sign of Aquarius for the day, bringing with it the possibility for change. The number of the day is 9, a number of endings and beginnings.

Tuesday 3/8/16 Page of Wands
New Moon 5:54 PM PST
Solar Eclipse in Pisces 5:54 PM PST
Moon Void of Course 5:54 PM PST
The astrology for today is complicated so I’m omitting transit times to make it easy to understand. The card for the week is the Page of Wands, a go getter who although inexperienced. Luck is on his side and he faces life with passion and naive courage. Because the Queen of Swords is the card for the week, this is a time when there will be a power grab. If we’re speaking on a broader scale, important, political power moves will be deceptive, done in secret and will impact the foreseeable future. On a personal level, eclipses bring upheavals and since we have two this month, taking advantage of the energy will determine how you rearrange the buidling blocks of your life. Sun opposition Jupiter at will bring confidence that boarders on egotism. People who take advantage of this energy will be empowered to make bold, sweeping moves. Since this is before the eclipse and the Moon is in Pisces, these moves will be deceptive and possibly nefarious. With Moon conjunction Neptune, these people will take advantage of those that are easily deceived and gullible. Do not allow yourself to be manipulated even if those around you are falling for lies and deceit. Moon square Saturn will bring out feelings of isolation and loneliness and make those who are looking for something to believe in easy to prey on. Moon sextile Pluto will intensify emotions but the upside is that sexual encounters will be good. Moon opposition Jupiter will show you what you need to do to gain personal freedom as long as you keep your head on straight. This eclipse is going to be like swimming in dark waters with your eyes closed. Avoid intoxication today to keep a clear head. The Moon is in the mysterious and sometimes deceptive sign of Pisces, warning to beware of people who are out for themselves. The number of the day is 2, reminding us that if we stay balanced, we’ll avoid trickery, lies and be able to access the power being offered to those who are aware of opportunity today.
Mantra: I trust myself and I know what I am capable of.
Wednesday 3/9/16 2 of Pentacles

Thursday 3/10/16 5 of Wands Reversed
Moon in Aries
The 5 of Wands Reversed is a card of avoidance. Perhaps you don’t want to deal with a task so you’ve let is sit for too long and now you have to address itYou or someone close to you may be exhibiting passive aggressive behavior and you’ve reached a breaking point. Although dealing with this conflict is uncomfortable, when an issue is confronted, it can lead to a resolution. Any conflict will be met with logic, making it easier to resolve when the Moon forms a trine with Saturn at 1:36 PM PST. It’s best to bring up any underlying issues before Moon square Pluto at 3:01 PM PST will bring strong emotions, and manipulation. Moon conjunct Uranus at 5:43 PM PST surprises. You may all of a sudden become aware of issues you had no idea existed. This could bring clashes. Hear the other person out. Mercury conjunct Neptune at 10:01 PM PST will bring muddled communication. You will be able to express abstract thoughts but this expression may not be done in a way in which it’s easy for others to understand you. The number of the day is 4, a number that reminds us that even if things feel off now, the events today will eventually settle and bring stability. The Moon is in the Mars ruled sign of Aries for most of the day, bringing war like feelings. Approach all battles like a wise leader.
Mantra: The only way to solve conflict is to confront it.

Saturday 3/12/16 9 Temperance
Moon in Taurus
Temperance is a card of being in flow with your destiny and intuition. You know exactly the right balance that is needed to achieve what you’re after and you know how to maintain it. Venus enters the intuitive sign of Pisces today at 2:24 where she’ll stay until 4/5/16. When Venus is in Pisces, she becomes compassionate to the point of passivity. She feels she doesn’t want to hurt others so she avoids confronting important issues. She is a chameleon and will morph and change depending on who she is trying to please. Therefore, remember the lesson of Temperance when you feel avoidant. Moon sextile Neptune at 3:55 AM PST will bring sensitivity invoked by your deepest dreams and fantasies. Moon sextile Gemini brings good communication as long as you don’t shy away if an issue arises. Moon trine Moon trine Pluto at 3:41 PM PST may cause some intense emotions. If they involve your partner, the best way to resolve them would be in the bedroom. This transit may leave you feeling drained so be nice to yourself. Moon trine Jupiter at 4:36 PM PST brings happiness, harmony and flow to your late afternoon. The number of the day is 6, a number of victories and recognition.
