With two quincunxes this morning, we may have a hard time choosing and could stay in limbo as a result. Otherwise, the day’s Moon in Aries and the Moon’s conjunction to fiery Mars this evening brings a strong need for activity and action.
- The Moon is in Aries all day (until Sunday, March 22nd, at 6:40 AM).
- The Moon is in void from 6:50 PM forward (until 6:40 AM tomorrow).
- The Moon is in its New Moon phase.
- The Moon is waxing.
- A Solar Eclipse occurred yesterday in the last degree of Pisces (which is the last degree of the zodiac).
Times are EDT
There can be a tendency today to say something that you later regret, Aries, or wonder why you said it at all today. Without even intending to do so, you could commit to something you later lose interest in. As long as you realize that today is about living in and enjoying the moment – not about making solid commitments – this can be an easy, successful day. This is especially important when it comes to love, as there can be some level of overoptimism or exaggeration in others’ responses that can mislead you. Financial or legal complications are possible right now. However, this is a day for making important adjustments that might be ignored other times, but that will benefit you in the long run. As the day moves forward, you seem to come into your own, but without a definite plan, you may only be spinning your wheels.
This morning, it would be a good idea to keep your expectations reasonable, Taurus, and this applies to situations, people, and yourself. There may be the need to establish boundaries with family or a friend. There can be exaggeration, misinformation, or false promises now. Vague worries may be an issue today, as part of you may be concerned that you’ve been neglecting certain responsibilities. This is not the time to give up – it’s the time to make refinements. With the Sun now in your privacy sector until April 20th, some review is important now before the Sun enters your sign and you begin a new yearly cycle. This a good time to seek closure, to review recent events, and to get into better touch with your deeper needs.
It can feel as if you need to make a choice between two equally compelling things this morning, Gemini. With the Sun now moving through your networking sector now and until April 20th, there is good energy for enjoying company and making nice connections, but decisions made in the first half of the day might be based on wrong information or observations. You might also have some concern about your reputation. Timing may be off temporarily with a partner, and it’s best to avoid automatic responses that haven’t served you well in the past. As the day advances, you’re likely to feel more sociable and in-tune.
Your appetite for pleasure is strong and growing these days with Jupiter in your solar second house, dear Cancer. If you are able to control this tendency while still enjoying this time, then you’re in a great position. Today, it may be a little difficult to think straight, however. There may be some exaggeration to deal with socially or in love. Timing may not be right, particularly with a partner. Avoid scheduling important interviews, events, or even serious conversations for now. Wait for an open atmosphere. Later today, ambitions are energized and motivation is strong, but you may not know exactly where to direct all of this excess energy.
A moral dilemma can present itself in the first half of the day, Leo, or you might feel pressure to make a decision that you’re not yet equipped to make. Your safest bet is to wait things out, if possible. You’re unlikely to be thinking in moderate terms today. Try to postpone investments or financial decisions to a better time. Enjoy yourself, but avoid driving yourself to excess today, as sluggishness can be the end result. However, as the day moves forward, you regain quite a bit of energy and motivation, particularly to explore new places or ideas. This theme is strong for you in the coming weeks.
This morning, you can struggle with indecision, dear Virgo. You are putting your past behind you in some way, but today you might be temporarily questioning that decision. Bravery will return shortly, and possibly as soon as this afternoon. Also important today is to recognize that communications can go awry in relationships, and there can be some disconnects or vacillation. You can be on a fence about a relationship matter. Your concern for others’ feelings and comfort levels is in most ways a real strength, but sometimes you forget to take care of yourself and worry a little too much about others, and today may be one of those times.
Decisions about work or health can be difficult to make today, Libra. The temptation to veer away from your elected path can also be strong if you don’t deal with the true problem behind your restlessness. If you can manage to focus your energies on something fun rather than routine, you can enjoy the day. There may be some confusing signals from a love interest or intimate partner, but are likely due to insecurities rather than full-on problems or issues. This morning can involve making adjustments and refinements rather than going forward boldly, but the afternoon encourages the opposite. Someone might encourage you to do something fun or different.
To take care of business or to have some fun, that is the question of the morning, dear Scorpio, because for some reason, they may seem mutually exclusive just for now. Try not to get hung up on it, because that can lead you to do neither. Try to hold off on major decision making now, largely because on one hand you may be undervaluing something, and on the other, you could be seeing more worth in a situation or thing than it deserves. It’s unlikely that we’ll find the magical balance between realism and idealism today, so let it go until more clarity and confidence are with you, if this is possible. Later today, you could become very intent on taking care of problems or getting some good old-fashioned work done.
Your usual routines and schedules can suffer from indecision in the first half of the day, Sagittarius. Co-workers and partners may require more sensitive “handling” today. Minor health irritations can be experienced now, and may in part be a symptom of feeling a bit off emotionally now. Use the morning for making refinements and adjustments, not for brand new endeavors. While this is not an ideal time for making decisions (you may be on the fence about more than one issue), the Sun, Moon, and Mars’ presence in your pleasure sector can help bring you out of a funk later today.
You have big plans now, and may be tempted to put a little too much on your plate, Capricorn. Keep expectations of yourself, and of others, realistic. Yes, you can do a lot, but you’re only human! Mercury forms an awkward aspect with Jupiter and this can cloud your judgment somewhat, as your gut feelings tend to conflict with the messages your head or intellect are giving you. Interests are plentiful right now, however, and that certainly does feel good. It’s just a matter of prioritizing. Children or a romantic partner might be a little distant or cantankerous this morning. Try not to take things personally. Things are speeding up on the domestic front. Until April 20th, the Sun moving through your home and family sector stimulates pride in these things, as well as a take-charge attitude, and later today, you’re likely to feel especially motivated to get things done, particularly around the home.
It may be difficult to shake off a frustrating matter or you may be faced with a difficult choice, dear Aquarius, and while it’s likely minor, this morning can be a little off as a result. Try to put minor personal differences aside in order to enjoy your day, and others, more fully. As well, concerns about money, family expenses, and basic security issues may be pronounced this morning. Current blocks are likely quite temporary. With the Sun now moving through your communications sector until April 20th, expect to be especially busy with various jobs, tasks, and errands. Today, with the Moon aligning with Mars in this same sector, you may feel especially energized to take care of things, but if you don’t have a plan of action, you may be spinning your wheels.
This morning, you might end up talking ahead of yourself, dear Pisces, and could later regret what you’ve said, or committed to. Be a little more careful with communications today, or you may end up leaving some people behind or confused. While there can be vacillation and indecisiveness this morning, as the day advances, you’re more forthright and decided. The Sun is now transiting your sector of values and personal resources, making the weeks until April 20th strong for getting your bearings, settling in, building your resources, and developing talents. This evening’s energy is a little impulsive in this regard. You may be feeling a little possessive and defensive. Otherwise, it’s a good time to talk about what truly matters to you.

BALANCE OF SIGNS

Initiating, pioneering energy. Independent, bold, courageous, assertive, fiery, inspirational, direct, decisive. Can be egotistical, impulsive, impatient, aggressive, lacking subtlety.
Compassionate, sensitive, self-sacrificing, gentle, intuitive. Can be escapist, impractical, hyper- sensitive, gullible.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
Scores: Fire 11; Earth 3; Air 0; Water 3
Fire is enthusiastic, dynamic, and spontaneous, but lacks reflection. We are more courageous and adventurous now, with a tendency to act before thinking. There is little concern about what happened in the past. We are competitive and possibly impatient or bored easily.
We may have a difficult time being objective or detached. We may not be especially communicative.
BALANCE OF MODES
Scores: Cardinal 10; Fixed 3; Mutable 4
We are ready to take action and to take on challenges, and can become frustrated with stagnant conditions.
LUNAR PHASE: NEW MOON
Moon 0 to 45 degrees ahead of the Sun.
This is an energetic, impulsive, and subjective period of time. We are looking for new projects and opportunities.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on March 21st:
Note that when an aspect is Applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is Separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected, or will perfect, in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a life time).
