It’s the 12th week of the year and the card of the week is the Princess or Page of Pentacles. The Page is a card of an eager, inexperienced person who is ready to start building his or her empire. But the Page needs guidance to build his or her dream. This card could represent you or someone you will help this week. We have 3 3s appearing this week, the 3 of Pentacles, the 3 of Wands and it is also the 12th week of the year that breaks down to 3. Therefore, this week is all about things coming together for you. And trust that the help you need is on the way. This is also a week of endurance with all the fiery cards signs and Venus Decent in Aries and the Sun entering Aries on Monday. If you can just hold out for a little longer, everything will be yours.
Mantra: Good things come to those who wait.

Monday 3/20/17 10 of Wands
Last Quarter 8:58 AM PST
Moon Void of Course 3:37 AM PST
Moon Enters Capricorn 8:31 AM PST
Sun Enters Aries
The card of the day is the 10 of Wands and it certainly feels like there’s a lot going on with the stars today that may feel a little over baring. The Sun Enters Aries, bringing the Spring Equinox along with it. It is the only other day besides the Fall Equinox when there is equidistance between the Earth and the Sun. The days will get longer and brighter from here on out. Queen Venus decends into the underworld, leaving the sky until she emerges on 3/31 as Venus Lucifer, morning star. Although she is plunged into the fire of Aries, she moves backwards into Pisces shortly after she emerges enflamed from her trip below so the lessons brought with her rising will be less harsh than if she stayed in a fire sign during the whole retrograde season. This will bring things back into balance. So don’t be overwhelmed by the fire; embrace it and walk into the flames. This is a test of your tolerance and you will not be left alone without mercy. In the minor scheme of things, Moon conjunct Saturn at 3:37 AM PST is an introverted transit that brings isolation. Try not to get lost in lonliness. Moon square Sun at 8:58 AM brings the challenges of first quarter and this should be particularly challenging since it appears in Capricorn, a sing sometimes associated with the Devil, during Venus Decent. Be prepared for your desires to be tested over the next 11 days. Sit with them and learn how to embrace them without letting them bind you. Moon square Venus backs this up as an indulgent transit tempting us with all the pleasures of the world. Enjoy, but don’t get carried away. The Sun enters the strict sign of Capricorn early in the day reminding us that endurance training can be a pleasurable experience. The number of the day is 6, a number of victory but also the number that rules the Devil card in the Tarot.
Mantra: There is a sweet spot between pleasure and pain where endurance strength and endurance are obtained.
Tuesday 3/21/17 3 of Pentacles
Moon in Capricorn
The 3 of Pentacles is a card of building your dreams. Since it’s Venus Retrograde, do something that you can wrap up in before Venus stations direct on 4/15/17 that will move you closer to your goals. Moon trine Mars at 12:43 AM PST is a transit of bravery and leadership. You have what it takes to convince others to follow your lead. If you are asleep during this transit, this theme may appear in your dreams. Moon sextile Neptune at 9:18 AM PST is a sensitive, empathetic transit. Time spent with friends today will be spent well. Moon square Mercury at 3:20 PM PST could muddle communication. It’s a time to go within, not turn outward. Moon conjunct Pluto at 10:32 PM PST is an intense transit that will bring overwhelming emotional experiences. Don’t give into obsession. The Moon is in the hardworking sign of Capricorn all day, reminding you that building a dream is possible with hard work and determination. The number of the day is 7, a number of reflection and discovery.
Mantra: Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Wednesday 3/22/17 3 of Wands
Moon Void of Course 6:20 AM PST
Moon Enters Aquarius 7:28 PM PST
The 3 of Wands is a card reminding us that even if we can’t see the effects of our hardwork just yet, it’s about to pay off big time. Be patient, time is of the essence. Moon square Jupiter at 12:44 AM PST is generally a positive transit but beware not to let your good luck and good feelings go to your head. You may come off as egotistical. Moon square Uranus at 6:20 AM PST is a rebellious transit that brings disagreements for the sake of disagreements. Expect the unexpected. The Moon is void of course between 6:20 AM PST and 7:28 PM PST so during this time, go with the flow and wrap up projects. Once the Moon enters Aries, you’re free to use the revolutionary energy that accompanies it to push forward for change. Remember, however, that it’s Venus Retrograde in Aries at the moment so only focus on the short term and don’t make any big, major changes unless it involves endings. The number of the day is 8, a number of karma.

Thursday 3/23/17 Prince or Knight of Cups
Moon in Aquarius
The Knight of Cups is the action brought on by the message that the Page delivered. The knight is on a quest but he realizes that the journey is just as important, if not more, than the destination. During this time of endurance, know that the pleasure you receiving form obtaining what you desire would not be possible without what you are learning form waiting patiently. Moon sextile Sun at 12:58 AM PST is a sign of happiness, harmony and flow. Moon sextile Venus at 7:06 AM PST is a lovely transit filled with creativity and good energy. Take a moment to appreciate the beauty around you this morning. But that good feeling may be threatened by Moon square Mars at 2:20 PM PST. To get the most out of this aggressive transit, turn that energy into productive, physical activity. But even still, that aggressive energy may linger with Mercury square Pluto at 5:42 PM PST. This is an obsessive, quarrelsome transit that also brings the potential for manipulation. If you can, keep working your body. Get out in the yard and take advantage of the longer daylight hours to tend to your lawn or garden or take a brisk stroll around the block. This should calm your mind and bring you to a centered place if you feel shaky. The Moon is in the restless sign of Aquarius all day so the more you exert physical energy, the more breakthroughs you’ll have. And remember to stay well hydrated too considering the Knight of Cups and the water bearer, Aquarius both are offering drinks. With all the energy in the stars, water will be refreshing and keep you balanced. The number of the day is 9, a number of near completion.
Mantra: Water is life.
Friday 3/24/17 8 of Cups
Moon in Aquarius
Moon Void of Course 10:56 PM PST
The 8 of Cups is a card of walking away from something because you know that you can do better. Mercury opposition Jupiter at 5:46 AM PST allows you to see the big picture that will lead you to success. The only disadvantage is that you may be tempted to overlook the details.
Moon trine Jupiter is an upbeat, jolly transit that will give you the optimism to see past any temporary losses that may be weighing you down. Moon sextile Mercury at 9:34 AM PST is a sign of flowing communication so you’ll be able to paint that big picture you saw under Mercury opposition Jupiter so others can see and share in your vision as well. Moon sextile Uranus at 3:02 PM PST reminds us that to achieve our dreams sometimes rules have to be broken. Moon sextile Saturn however brings that rebellious feeling back around and grounds it before you do anything too drastic to disrupt the pieces of the puzzle coming together. The Aquarius Moon shakes things up as the number of the day, 1(0) brings on revolutionary changes.
Mantra: Inspiration comes in a flash.
Saturday 3/25/17 Ace of Wands
Moon Enters Pisces
The Ace of Wands contains all the fire signs within it along with all the traditionally masculine attributes of fire – passion, strength, courage and endurance. When the Ace appears, it offers you all of this and more. It is also a phallic card that has very sexual implications so grab a partner and have some fun today. Sun conjunct Venus at 3:16 AM is an attention needy transit that is good for business and social gatherings. Avoid frivolous spending and vanity. Moon sextile Mars at 11:43 PM PST is a sign of bravery and leadership. The masculine Mars and feminine Venus complement each other making this the perfect transit for romantic rendezvous. The Moon is in the flowing sign of Pieces, balancing out the fiery energy from the Ace of Wands. The number of the day is 2, a number that signals that all of the dualistic clues given in the forecast are an indication that you will feel very much in balance today.
Mantra: Fire and Water, ice and sun, dualistic nature, two become one.
Sunday 3/26/17 The Chariot
Moon in Pisces
The Chariot is a card of positive movement forward. Don’t forget, you’re in control! Mercury conjunct Uranus at 8:05 AM PST is a transit of rapid communication. Trust your intuition and unravel the riddles to the answers you seek. Write your ideas down because they may cycle through your head so quickly that you could forget them as fast as you have them. Moon sextile Pluto at 12:52 PM PST is a disruptive transit that brings outbursts that clear the air. Let things break because they weren’t meant to sustain themselves. The Moon is in the mysterious sign of Pieces so don’t be afraid of what comes up from the depths. The number of the day is 3, a number of things coming together.
Mantra: Baby you can drive my car … very carefully …
