It’s the 12th week of the year and the card of the week is the 9 of Wands. This week is the Spring Equinox and Mercury stations Retrograde in Aries. Not only that, but we will have The Sun, the Moon, Uranus, Mercury and Venus all in Aries this week but the Moon will exit before the Sun enters the sign of the Messenger. A message seems to have missed you but the lesson of this Mercury Retrograde is wait. The number of the week is 3, reminding us that things will all come together soon enough. Take time to slow down and really pay attention to details. It will be the best way to get rid of what you don’t need this Mercury Retrograde.
Mantra: Come closer … but not too close.

Tuesday 03/20/18 8 of Cups
Moon in Taurus
Sun Enters Aries 9:16 A.M. PST
It’s the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and Fall in the Southern. These transition seasons are times to move on, just like the 8 of Cups. Mercury also stations retrograde Thursday in Aries so it is the perfect time to spiritually and metaphorically “burn” what doesn’t serve you anymore. Moon trine Saturn at 9:05 A.M. PST is a transit of accepting duties and responsibilities. You’ll know what you need to let go of and be able to commit to it. The Sun Enters the fiery sign of Aries today at 9:16 A.M. PST where He will stay until 4/19/18. While the Sun is in Aries Mars ruled, people will appear more determined than usual. It is also the first sign of the Zodiac so it is a time for the sprouting of new seeds and ideas. But because we have Mercury Retrograde coming, this will be a time to clear the garden so the new seeds being planted can grow. This is a time to enjoy the vigor of life and embrace how lucky we are to be alive at this extraordinary time in history. This time can be a whirlwind but also a time where a “me first” attitude prevails. Moon sextile Neptune at 7:42 P.M. PST is a psychic intuitive transit that can lead to daydreaming and also increased sensitivity, especially from the intensity of today. If you find yourself looking back, keep going forward. The Moon is in the sign of Taurus, ruled by Mars’ lover, Venus, all day so expect things to flow together nicely. The number of the day is 7, a number of embracing the mysteries.
Mantra: Moving right along.
Wednesday 03/21/18 5 of Cups
Moon Void of Course 10:21 A.M. PST
Moon Enters Gemini 10:30 P.M. PST
The 5 of Cups is a card of crying over spilled milk. Mercury Stations Retrograde in Aries tomorrow so you may be holding on to what you should really let go of so tightly. But you may not even realize that you’re holding on to a hot coal and you’re burning yourself. Pour some water on those emotions and neutralize them. Things really aren’t as bad as they seem. Moon trine Pluto at 6:58 A.M. PST is a transit of intense emotions. You may feel drained by revelations but what comes to light is worth knowing. Moon opposition Jupiter at 10:21 A.M. PST is a transit where you may feel restless and looking for answers. You may find what you seek in helping others. The Moon starts the day in the creative sign of Taurus but goes void of course between 10:21 A.M. PST and 10:30 P.M. PST. You may feel discontent and attention hungry during this time so check any spoiled brat behavior. The Moon then enters the dualistic sign of Gemini at 10:30 P.M. PST so pay attention how you can balance opposing forces in your life during this time. The number of the day is 8, a number of karma.
Mantra: Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.
Thursday 03/22/18 Queen of Wands (Luminary of Atoms)
Moon in Gemini
Mercury Stations Retrograde 5:19 P.M. PST
The Queen of Wands is a card that announces the appearance of a dynamic woman. She is passionate and lights up a room when she enters it. She knows what she wants and how to get it. If she doesn’t represent you, she represents someone you may come into contact with today. Moon sextile Sun at 1:22 A.M. PST is a transit of happiness, harmony and flow. Even in the chaos of the impending Mercury Retrograde, things will flow together and spirits will be high. Mercury stations retrograde in Aries at 5:19 P.M. PST and will remain in Retrograde until 04/14/18 and will remain in Aries throughout the entire retrograde process. When Mercury is direct, He’s a quick planet that flies with speed. But when He’s in Retrograde, he appears to slow down. This distortion of reality can cause confusion to us on Earth. Now add the fire of Mars to the mix. Prepare for extreme agitation with waiting things out. But if you jump into anything you’ll regret it. But resist the urge to do things that will only get you burnt. Moon square Neptune at 11:40 P.M. PST will only add to the confusion so be confident like the Queen of wands and use the fire not to destroy but to light the way. The Moon is in the dualistic and Mercury ruled sign of Gemini. Mind the flames, keep it contained. The number of the day is 9, a number of near completion.
Mantra: I let my thoughts ignite and light up the night.

Love will be the foundation with Moon sextile Venus at 10:07 A.M. PST. Venus square Pluto at 4:13 P.M. PST is a transit of love evolution. These growing pains hurt but there are lessons of love in pain too. Expect big changes in love and relationships.

It will taste even better if you have to wait.

Make it your mantra. Avoid dealing with authority today. You may think that you will never get what you want with Moon opposition Saturn at 4:37 P.M. PST but it’s worth waiting it out. The Moon enters the emotional sign of Cancer at 1:53 A.M. PST where She will stay for the rest of the day. The water is here to cool the flames of Aries.
