Times are EST
There can be some restlessness experienced this morning, dear Aries, but if you find an area of focus and cut out distractions, you’re in fine shape as the day progresses. It’s a strong time for applying yourself to researching an idea or project. You can apply rationality and practical thought to normally emotional or sensitive matters. Information that you’ve been waiting for might now come in. Business benefits from using strategy in your planning. You might be reaching a level of peace about a past matter, particularly a romantic one. You are likely to look back on recent events and see them in a different light – one that facilitates flushing out the negative elements present in your life so that you can go forward feeling freer and lighter.
This is a good day for making adjustments and small changes that benefit you greatly in the future, dear Taurus. Strengthening relationships can be in focus for some of you. It’s a good time for revitalizing a friendship or for discovering new ways to approach people that inspire trust and understanding. There can be interesting connections made or you might bump into an old friend. Whether you’re attracting new people in your life or bonding with existing friends, this is a good time to connect and share. Be sure to show your commitment and/or your interest and support. You might advance a cherished goal, plan, or cause now. Idea exchanges can be helpful.
There could be a conflict between spending time on your own or with family, dear Gemini, and teaming up with someone or paying attention to friends and group activities. This is an ongoing issue this year that comes in and out of focus. You may be on the fence whether to go your own way or oblige friends and others. There is a way to strike a compromise, which you are bound to discover after some trial and error. However, you’re in a good position as the day advances, particularly for courage to face tricky matters. More patience is at your disposal, and you can be expressing your confidence in what you have to offer on a professional level. The key to success now is to keep it real – avoid showiness and simply let others see you for your value. If you can benefit from doing some research and general digging for answers, then this is a fine day for doing so.
While you could be battling a bit of daily life chaos or restlessness today, dear Cancer, you can make some wonderful advances in studies and with your relationships. Be a little more vigilant than usual with your communications this morning. A relationship can grow today, and you could gain new insight into a person and possibly your finances. You are now able to lift yourself above the clatter of everyday matters. Thoughts turn to larger matters, and new worlds are opening up to you as you expand your mind, opening up to different schools of thought. You are bound to experience entirely new viewpoints and perspectives through your interactions with others who introduce you to new interests, or who help reignite old ones. Sharing viewpoints, personal philosophies, and opinions with others can be rewarding, and you are likely to be making exciting discoveries in the process.
You may be faced with a dilemma when it comes to funding your adventures, travels, or education, dear Leo, or if you’ve taken on too many business projects or commitments, as much as you’re enjoying them, you could feel the need to free up some time for new or broader experiences and spontaneous activities. You’ll figure out how to balance experimentation and practical application as you go along, but at the moment, this can be an area of challenge. Later today, you may have the opportunity to strengthen and/or repair relationships through a better understanding of power dynamics. You might find that you’re drawn to activities that test and prove your strength, particularly when it comes to your health and work. This is also a good day for personal influence and clout.
A Jupiter-Uranus aspect that comes exact today can serve as a checkpoint if you have recently taken on too much, dear Virgo. You may need to simplify before excess in one area of life begins detrimentally affecting other life “departments”. Freedom is especially important to you these days, so make room for spontaneity. A Sun-Pluto aspect today can encourage you to strengthen certain areas of your life, particularly your relationships. This is a time when some details that were previously unknown begin to fill in, and you are in a better position to make judgment calls. The agendas of others in your life tend to be ahead of yours these days, and it’s a good time for honoring your close relationships and making an extra effort to improve them. Today’s energies are powerful for healing a relationship or your own attitude towards relating. Applying yourself to artistic or other creative pursuits and hobbies today can be fulfilling now.
A Jupiter-Uranus quincunx coming exact today can influence at least the whole week, dear Libra, and can serve as an important reminder that even with the things you love and enjoy, if you go overboard, you can end up restricting yourself in other areas of life. Look for ways to balance your life, particularly if you’ve been a little too retiring or escapist/avoidant. For some of you, your increased need for solitude, time alone, or time to think, can be affecting a relationship. Look for a compromise, even if it’s not very obvious at the moment. A Sun-Pluto aspect is also active today, and it’s potentially very enriching. You might channel your energies into a project around the home, set up a home office, or work on improving a self-care or health program. It’s a good time for finding something lost or for discovering new information, and it’s a strong day for solving problems and getting to the bottom of things.
If you’ve been taking on too many projects or spending a little too much time networking and socializing recently, dear Scorpio, you could begin to feel a little restless now. You might discover that too much of a good, enjoyable thing can eventually feel burdensome or wasteful. Make some time for yourself and for life’s unexpected moments, and be sure that work and health matters get their due attention. This way, you’ll be in a better position to grab opportunities when they arise. With a Sun-Pluto aspect today, you could get the opportunity to show off your insights. Romantically speaking, this is a fine day for attracting someone who appreciates you for your more unique qualities. Motivation to work hard at learning, creative, or mental tasks can bring rewards down the road. It’s a great time to focus on something that you take special pride in.
If you are filling up your life too full of projects, dear Sagittarius, even if they are thoroughly exciting, you will end up feeling overburdened. Keep some time in your life free. A Sun-Pluto aspect today is strong for examining spending and saving habits, and especially for looking for redundancies. Finding ways to improve your life, particularly in your home life or with money, can be in focus now. Small changes made now will bring great rewards down the road. Your personal life gets top billing now and in the coming weeks. If you have faith in yourself and the people closest to you, whatever difficulties you may face in the outside world will be easier to handle. This is a strong time for strengthening and improving relationships with loved ones. New or improved ways of making money can come to you now.
These days, you may be making more time for freeform activities and leisure, dear Capricorn, and it’s important that you let loose your more spontaneous inclinations or adventurous side. However, if you’re overdoing this, you may feel a pinch now. A Sun-Pluto aspect today is strong for communicating effectively, being “heard”, and any kind of editing work. Your ideas are well-received, and you can be especially persuasive. It’s a good time for pitching an idea or simply having a conversation that means a lot to you. People are showing their respect for you, and you could make small advances in, or improvements to, your projects.
With Jupiter in difficult aspect to your ruler, Uranus, today, dear Aquarius, you could be feeling a pinch if you’ve been overdoing things or taking on too many projects and interests. Be delicate when it comes to handling tricky topics now, and investigate a proposition or plan thoroughly before investing your time and energy into it. Watch for restlessness that leads to imprecise communications. Otherwise, today is strong for drawing up plans and strategies, particularly regarding money and business matters. It’s also good for new insight into psychological and personal affairs. Narrowing your focus can be useful now – the latter part of the day favors concentration and focus. It’s a good time to “birth” new business ideas. You might also be putting faith in a special someone now, and you can receive some good advice and possibly support.
This is a strong time for honing in on problem areas and identifying areas that need some adjusting, dear Pisces. Energies active today remind you of the need to focus from time to time rather than scattering your energies. Your actions count the most right now, and they show your commitment. Friendships can receive a nice boost, and it’s a good time for organized team efforts, particularly if you are taking the lead. An old friendship may be restored for some of you. Small changes made now can impact the future in big ways. Conservative planning will ensure success. You can find yourself concentrating on practical details that you typically might avoid, and you are bound to benefit from doing so. Focus on improving, adjusting, editing, and prioritizing for best results now.

The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on March 6th:
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 involving inner planets 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 lifetime).
