March 23—Crescent Moon: Beginning. Time to get our bearings. This lunar cycle began with a portal into the unknown. The opening, created by a Solar Eclipse at the last degree of Pisces, has given us a great opportunity to shed the things we no longer need as we begin the next cycle around the Sun. We have twelve months and twelve signs, beginning with Aries, to live our lives with intention, mindfullness, and participation in the world we are co-creating. The crescent phase of the Moon brings attention to the beginning of our beginnings. Where will you go next?
Tuesday, March 24. For the next two days, the Moon in Gemini provides air, the only air. Gemini gives perspective through the pursuit of information, diverse conversations, or appreciating polar opposites. Gemini is also a very busy sign and hates to be bored. Couple this instinct with two other influences today: Venus sextile Pluto—giving power to our desires for sustainable security, and Mercury in conjunction with Chiron—opening our hearts to the vulnerabilities within and around us. We may be inpatient to bring healing and solutions to our problems. Later the Moon opposes Saturn in Sagittarius and squares Neptune in Pisces, emphasizing the important influence of this ongoing transit. Truth is relative but doesn’t feel that way. With all the passions floating about recently, be careful of your certainties.
Wednesday, March 25. I love that curiosity is one of the qualities of enlightenment. Today’s transits encourage this state of mind. The Moon in Gemini makes favorable contacts to Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries. Revolutionary fervor is rekindled but from the perspective of wondering, “What would happen if I … .” Let’s see where that takes us today. Be on the lookout for random bits of information that offer a new perspective. Synchronicity is a game. The Sun in Aries is trine to Saturn in Sagittarius. This connection really boosts new projects, goals, and intentions for the month and perhaps the year. Look for support. Towards the end of the day there could be misunderstandings around emotion and intellect. It isn’t either/or.
March 27—First Quarter Moon: Manifesting. So, we’ve emerged into Spring, ready to take on discovering who we are and what our next steps should be. Like a rocket fired from a cannon, much of the impetus for change has taken over and done lots of the work for us so far, but we didn’t think everything would be a piece of cake from here on out, did we? Resolves will be tested at this phase of the Moon. Doubts arise from the emotion-based realm of memories and insecurities. Though it can hurt, this is good. The Cancer Moon gives a good challenge to Aries bravado. Needs go deep and should not be ignored for the sake of forward momentum. When we stop to consider not only our own feelings, but those of others, we gain compassion and wisdom, necessary ingredients to our beginnings this year.
