It’s the 12th week of the year. In numerology, that adds up to 1+2=3. 3 is a number of creativity, nurturing and freedom. This is an interesting number for the week because the Spring Equinox falls between Saturday, 3/19/16 and Sunday 3/20/16 in the Northern Hemisphere. The card for the week is the 7 of Cups, which is a card of dreams and fantasies. Know that thoughts are the seeds of future realities and with the right amount of dedication, you can manifest what is planted in your mind. We also have a partial lunar eclipse this week on 3/23/16. This eclipse will be visible throughout most of Asia, North America, Australia and South America. This eclipse rides in on the back of the full solar eclipse on 3/18/16. Many people felt a big shift in their power during this interim period. It was a time to shift your destiny and through focusing your will on all that you desire. This eclipse will bring a cooling down of the intensity from the solar eclipse but the transits will bring additional shifting energy but I’ll safe those details for Wednesday’s forecast. It’s going to be an interesting week. Mantra: The seeds of our dreams can blossom into reality.

Full Moon 5:01 AM PST
Lunar Eclipse 5:01 AM PST
Moon in Libra
We have a lunar eclipse in Libra at 5:01 PST. This eclipse will be visible in Asia, Australia, North America and most of South America. Lunar eclipses are all about rearranging relationships. Libra is all about trying to achieve balance in relationships. But the aspects affecting this eclipse, just like the last eclipse, are all about power and forcefulness. Once again, I’ve omitted times for minor transits to cut to the chase. Jupiter square Saturn will bring confusion to relationships. You may not know what direction to take, especially if you’ve been manipulated by someone close to you or on a more international scale, political leaders or wannabe political leaders. Moon opposition Mercury may cause you to be judgmental due to things that you don’t understand. There may be hate speech or hate acts against minorities, women, and the LGBT community. People who are marginalized may have trouble finding a voice. This rides on the back of the deceit and underhandedness that came with the solar eclipse at the beginning of the month. Moon sextile Mars will allow those who speak passionately to gain more influence. Sun conjunct Mercury will have everyone talking about what’s going on. Those who are self-involved will monologue and others will listen. This is a time to think logically and take everything in. After this eclipse, however, we’ll see a cool down and we’ll have time to process all that we learned during this eclipse season. Hopefully, you’ll have gotten the most out of these energies and walked away empowered and ready to take on the world. The Moon is in Libra and the number of the day is 8, reminding us that everything we experience we bring upon ourselves in one way or another.
