We are emotionally geared to playing it safe today, but with a Uranus-Pluto square approaching, we need to be flexible.
- The Moon is in Capricorn all day (until Monday, March 16th, at 6:13 AM).
- The Moon is in its Last Quarter phase.
- The Moon is waning.
- A Solar Eclipse will occur on March 20th in the last degree of Pisces. This is not an ideal time for major new beginnings and decisions.
Times are EDT
With Mercury in your solar twelfth house, decision making tends to be a lengthier process for you these days, Aries. Today, Mercury approaches a square to Saturn, which can make a decision downright painful! There can be some tricky energy in your communications. Generally, these can be about insecurities and uncertainty, as we may be a little self-protective. Otherwise, it can be about getting around easily, as there could be some transportation or mechanical breakdowns, and possibly missed connections. Because the atmosphere is tense this week, make an extra effort to get over the smaller problems and challenges, as irritating as they are likely to be.
Your sights are set high today, dear Taurus, and you can be feeling rather optimistic as you focus on the things that truly matter. However, there can be tension in the air at times. Later today, it may be particularly difficult to get a point across, largely because people are quite touchy. As well, there could be problems with either the delivery of the message or how it’s received. Many different things can go wrong right now. These can be only little things, but they can add up and the day is far from smooth as a result. Transportation, manual, and communication delays or breakdowns can be an issue now. Go back to the frame of mind with which you started the day – focused on the bigger picture – in order to stay focused and centered.
You are especially geared up to look at life a little more deeply, and to solve a mystery, today with the Moon in your solar eighth house all day, dear Gemini. Your powers of perception come to the fore and are highlighted now. However, later today, you could find a partner, boss, or people in general especially critical, negative, unavailable, or unresponsive. People may be holding on too tightly to their ways of thinking or their own traditions and could be feeling threatened by changes or alternatives. You can’t control these things, so do what you can to focus on those things that you can control, such as your own reactions. There is stubbornness to people now, and it doesn’t help that there are obstacles to understanding one another.
In many ways, you can be feeling enthusiastic today, but there is a serious side to your manner, or serious energy is brought to you through the manner of someone significant, as you are especially sensitive to the moods of others now, dear Cancer. Later, responsibilities make themselves known, particularly work-related ones. The tendency is to see the flaws, blocks, and delays, and not the opportunities. The best way to manage this is to be easy on yourself and humble with others. Following the rules rather than skipping steps will be important now. There is more tension in the air with Uranus and Pluto coming to a square tomorrow, and it’s important to get your priorities straight now.
Details and flaws capture your attention more than usual, dear Leo, and you could resolve to take care of problems from early on in the day. However, as the day moves forward, little problems might too easily control you than vice versa. You could also be dealing with a dilemma over whether to play things safe or to go out on a limb and take a risk. You could be looking at a matter from a negative perspective, and this can be especially the case when the heart is involved – with close relationships. Communications don’t flow very naturally now – they can be choppy, and interpretation of intention or meaning can be off. Difficult Saturn aspects such as the one we’re experiencing now can slow us down, but this can be a blessing in disguise, as we then get a chance to make important adjustments.
With the Moon in your romance and creativity sector all day, you’re in the mood for some attention, although keep in mind that people around you may be quite self-absorbed right now. Interactions with others may have been fast-paced in recent days, dear Virgo, but later today, a slower, attentive approach is best. Even with this, conversations can be difficult when either person involved (or all parties) is in a fearful or defensive state, and this is very likely the situation tonight and early tomorrow. There can be a mental disconnect with someone close to you. Save important ideas or topics for a more free-spirited time. The ability to let go of grudges increases as the week progresses, but there is still some stubborn energy with us, and today, it’s particularly evident in our communications and with our ideas.
There can be a stronger desire than usual to cocoon, nest, or otherwise keep yourself safe and comfortable today, dear Libra, with the Moon in your sector of home and family all day. It may not be easy to fulfill, but you’re seeking out comfort and familiarity now. Later today, there may be a tendency to focus on what you don’t have or what’s been lost. Focus on practical problems that need fixing, and watch for communication problems. By tomorrow, these energies should be less circumspect, but circumstances are likely to keep you on your toes.
It can be difficult to focus today, dear Scorpio, and you could feel pulled in many different directions. In many ways, this is fine, largely because you can feel a little restless without mental stimulation now. Pleasantly busy is good, but when it moves across the line over to chaotic, that’s when you should rein things in. Later today, there can be a misunderstanding, communication block, or mental disconnect that leaves you feeling exasperated. Concerns about money can bring you back down to earth, perhaps with a bump. You could be seeing people in a less flattering light, temporarily.
You are in a more practical frame of mind today, dear Sagittarius, but there can be a tendency to take this a little too far later today. There can be heightened awareness of your responsibilities, or you might be in the position to take on new responsibilities. You could be feeling a little lonely or unsupported, and particularly misunderstood. A domestic problem or a burden might figure strongly. You can be in a serious mood and should probably watch that you don’t pull others down as well. If you can think up a better way to say something, choose it! Even if you are not meaning to be critical, others could read what you say in a negative light now.
The Moon in your sign all day amps up your emotions, dear Capricorn. Perhaps more accurately, this Moon position pulls your feelings up to the surface and to light. You are more aware of your emotional needs and wants. There can be resistance or even rejection when it comes to your ideas later today, but keep in mind that your own insecurities, fears, or guilt could affect your approach to presenting your ideas or asking for what you want. Adjust your approach, or go even deeper and think about what may be preventing you from feeling worthy of positive responses, if this seems to be a problem. You may want to wait out making important decisions for a better time.
Again today, there is a tendency to want to retire or pull away for extra time to yourself, or at least time away from competitive or demanding situations, dear Aquarius. This is due to the Moon moving through the sign just behind yours. Tomorrow morning, the Moon will enter Aquarius, and this can stimulate a stronger need to feel connected to your environment and to others. Later today, a difficult Mercury-Saturn aspect is active and there could be some criticism or negativity to deal with. For some, this is about missed messages or instructions. Aim to be flexible and resilient, as much as possible, so that the little problems that are likely to crop up now don’t spoil your mood.
While your heart is with your friends or connections today, dear Pisces, you should keep in mind that people can be sensitive or not as quick to catch on as you, particularly later today, so watch that you don’t talk ahead of yourself. There can be a multitude of little problems, misunderstandings, and blocks now. A person in authority could veto a plan, or there could be general blocks to smoothly getting your message and ideas across. Be a little more attentive about what you say, and possibly more importantly, think before you speak or send an email out.

BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
Scores: Fire 7; Earth 4; Air 0; Water 6
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 9; Fixed 1; Mutable 7
We are ready to take action and to take on challenges, and can become frustrated with stagnant conditions.
We may be open to change but may not have much follow-through.
LUNAR PHASE: THIRD QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 45 degrees behind the Sun.
We have strong beliefs and are likely to put them into action. We have the wisdom to know when to act, but sometimes can be inflexible.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on March 15th:
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).
