Unlock the Power of Planetary Energies: March 18-24, 2024

Unlock the Power of Planetary Energies: March 18-24, 2024

ARIES EQUINOX: The astrological New Year begins on Tuesday, March 19, when the Sun enters the first sign of the zodiac.

This is also the Aries Equinox, the day when the Sun crosses the celestial equator in its journey north and the inhabitants of planet Earth experience the hours of daylight and darkness as approximately equal.

According to spiritual traditions, an energetic portal opens at the equinox, giving us the opportunity to align more fully with the cosmic flow. This is evidenced in physical terms by the fact that around the time of the equinox (in both March and September), we are more likely to see the Aurora Borealis. This effect is due to the tilt of the Earth in relationship to the Sun at the time of the equinox, which allows solar wind to more directly enter cracks in the Earth's magnetic field. 

Symbolically, the equal length of day and night reminds us to accept both the light and the shadow, in ourselves and in others. As we grow in self-awareness and self-love, and also in our ability to maintain a higher perspective regarding the human experience, we are enabled to bring greater understanding and compassion into all our interactions.

VENUS AND SATURN: Venus, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, has her annual rendezvous with Saturn, the Lord of Karma, this week. Since humans tend to think of the word "karma" in terms of punishment, anything having to do with the Lord of Karma may sound ominous. 

In the original Sanskrit, the word karma literally means "action" or doing"; thus, the alignment between Venus and Saturn is a time for us to be very intentional and mature in our actions in the areas of love and finances. This conjunction asks us to get clear about our core values, to come to terms with the reality of our situation, and to make decisions that are in alignment with our highest integrity. 

As such, when Venus and Saturn align, some may make a stronger commitment to a relationship, others may decide to end an alliance, while others might realize that work is needed and decide to go into therapy together. Some may realize that they need to reduce their spending, while others may decide to make a well-thought-out, practical investment.

ECLIPSE NEXT MONDAY: Although the Lunar Eclipse on March 25 is not on the calendar for this week's Journal, we will be sensing the impact of the event building throughout the days ahead. Instincts, emotions, and psychic impressions may be more powerful, and we could find ourselves dwelling on the past, especially those situations and relationships that we are now ready to forgive and release.

The unconscious is coming to the surface to be processed and unexpected events will motivate us to take action. More on the eclipse in next week's issue, of course!

THIS WEEK'S ASPECTS: Here are my brief interpretations of this week's most important planetary aspects: 


Mercury conjunct North Node: This alignment reminds us that being direct and forthright in our communications are an important part of our evolutionary growth. We are learning that expecting others to read our minds, to know our thoughts without our having to express them, is not fair or kind to others or to ourselves.


Venus semisquare Eris: We may easily become irritated when others are not as sensitive to our needs as we idealistically want them to be.

Sun semisquare Jupiter: There can be a tendency to expect too much or to give too much with this influence. Moderation is key.

Sun enters Aries, 8:06 p.m. PDT: The Sun will be in the sign of The Ram from March 19 to April 19 this year. During this solar month, there is a sense of new beginnings and the urge to initiate is heightened. We may feel more energized and be willing to take more risks than usual. The shadow of the Sun in Aries is being too impulsive or too self-oriented, not taking the time to see the longer-term consequences of our actions.


Mercury conjunct Chiron: If we feel insecure in our ability to communicate or find that we do not trust our own thinking today, this is the perfect time to embrace our inner child with love, acceptance, and understanding. The inner child is the part of us that believes that it is not smart enough, is fearful of being "wrong," or assumes it will be misunderstood or ignored. As we provide the loving support this part of us needs, healing begins and self-confidence starts to be restored.


Sun sextile Pluto: This aspect strengthens our determination to make a fresh start. Inner courage and a sense of personal empowerment are enhanced.

Venus conjunct Saturn: This alignment provides a reality check in the areas of relationship and finances, requiring that we make a mature assessment of conditions and make practical decisions as needed.


Mars enters Pisces: While Mars is in Pisces, from March 22 to April 30, we are motivated to take action in alignment with our spiritual ideals or to initiate a creative endeavor. Because Mars in Pisces prefers to be compassionate and dislikes confrontation, people may withhold anger, take escape routes instead of facing issues directly, or be more passive-aggressive during this time.


No major aspects are exact today.


Venus sextile Jupiter: With the two benefic planets in harmonious aspect, this is a good day to enjoy the simple pleasures of life: a relaxed time with friends or loved ones, a walk-in nature, a concert or a good meal, or other activities that bring a sense of calm and ease to the heart.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: Your sensitivity and idealism are strong this year. At the same time, there is a sense of determination in what you do, especially in activities that are in alignment with your sense of higher purpose. It is best to get very clear on your intentions and expectations before taking action, since a rosy glow can interfere with accurate perceptions. There might also be a tendency to overextend yourself, so do a good reality check, access your intuition, and assess your energy level at each important juncture. (Solar Return Sun semisquare Jupiter, conjunct Neptune, sextile Pluto)

In peace, love, and gratitude,
