Times are EDT
Mercury enters your sign today, where it will transit until April 14th. This gives you a stronger voice, dear Aries. You’re also quite a bit more curious, talkative, and on the move during this cycle. In some ways, you can feel re-awakened on a mental level, wanting to start fresh and thinking innovatively. You can be quite observant now, sometimes nervous, and more willing to discuss your plans. You are inclined to make executive decisions now. Work or projects might fall into your lap. Today, there could be a bit of a blow to the ego if you are pushing too hard for your own agenda. The need to pay some homage to a partnership or partner may arise.
Mercury begins its transit of your soul sector today, Taurus, and this brings a stronger need for privacy or solitude for making decisions, and quite possibly for your work. The best ideas tend to come from periods of being alone and in better touch with your inner world. You tend to rely on your intuition more than logic during this cycle, and you pay attention to different cues than the ones you typically notice in order to arrive at decisions and conclusions. The Moon is also in a rather reclusive zone of your chart today, pointing to a generally low-profile day. You might also be reassessing a particular service or support you give others.
With Mercury now in Aries and your friendship sector, dear Gemini, the cycle ahead of you is a generally friendly one. Your ideas are innovative, unusual, and progressive during this cycle that lasts until mid-April. You may have more contact with friends or associates, or could get some great ideas from your conversations with others and through networking activities. It’s also a great time for sharing your own ideas with others. Today, however, you may be reassessing a friendship or connection to a group in terms of whether it’s allowing you to move forward and grow. There may be a need to swallow your pride for the sake of a relationship that you do want to keep. Regardless, personal magnetism runs high and you could find it especially easy to make peace with others.
Mercury moves into your sector of responsibility, career, and reputation today, Cancer, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until mid-April. You can be more accountable for what you communicate, or you might be a little more guarded with what you say and how you say it. You might be asked to speak formally about a manner, or informally to give advice. People recognize you for your ideas or your smarts. Today, you may be questioning a particular project, plan, long-term goal, or even your current career path if you’re uncertain it’s truly doing you any favors. There may be the need to swallow your pride just for now, as it may be the best course of action.
Mercury is now transiting in harmony with your sign, dear Leo. Until April 14th, your outlook is especially positive, your interest in the world around you increases, and your ideas are generally well-received. You’re more inclined to view problems from a new, broader perspective, and this different approach can in fact reduce the number of perceived challenges in your life. Today, you could be questioning certain beliefs, learning paths, or interests. You may need to take a blow to your ego on an opinion, but this lesson can in fact bring you to a stronger position. The Moon is in your sign all day, bringing up previously neglected feelings to the surface.
Mercury moves into your intimacy sector today, Virgo, and will influence this area of your solar chart until mid-April. This is a period of deeper thought and increased strategy. You are a little less inclined to speak about your plans or engage in small talk during this period. You could be attracted to mysteries or darker subject matter during this cycle, or you could find that you’re attracting these things to you. It’s a strong time for really getting to the bottom of matters, for therapy or counselling, for research and investigation, and for bringing more reason and logic to typically taboo or complex matters. You might really enjoy psycho-analyzing things or playing detective. Today, circumstances may be such that you consider letting go of a bad habit.
The Mercury moves into your opposing sign today, dear Libra, and will continue to transit your partnership sector until April 14th. This can point to a stronger need for others in your life, especially when it comes to ideas and decisions. You tend to want others’ opinions perhaps to stimulate your own thinking on matters. People in your life can be particularly communicative and interested in talking with you. Either way, intellectual companionship is emphasized now. Today, the need to entertain others’ ideas and input is especially strong. You might be questioning a relationship in terms of whether or not it’s supporting your personal growth.
Mercury, the planet of communication, begins its transit of your work and health sector today, dear Scorpio, where it will influence until April 14th. This is a cycle for really focusing on the details of your life and getting them into order. Work, practical matters, health, fitness, nutrition, and routines are all in stronger focus. Positively, this is a strong period for getting work done that leads to a stronger feeling of being in charge of your life. The challenge of this transit comes if you are so focused on flaws or overwhelmed with details that you fail to see the bigger picture. Today, you may be questioning some of the things you do for work or in service to others. You may be better off slimming down your duties in order to focus on the most important ones.
Mercury moves into a position of harmony with your sign today, and will continue to harmonize with Sagittarius until April 14th. This is a good time for expressing your ideas and opinions, and generally getting a warm reception for them. You are more confident and ready to take a personal risk when it comes to expressing yourself, learning, and communicating. You may be craving positive feedback for your mental or verbal skills. Today is good for personal magnetism and general good humor. You might also be recognized for the work you do.
Mercury begins its transit of the sector of your solar chart that rules heart and home today, Capricorn, and it will continue to influence your domestic and inner worlds until April 14th. This is a busy time for family or home life. This can point to more communication with family, work and learning from home, or thoughts that often turn to the past, family, and inner life. With Mars moving into harmony with your sign tomorrow, and Mercury challenging your sign starting today, the upcoming weeks better favor action than words!
Mercury begins transiting your communications sector today, dear Aquarius, where it will stay until April 14th. This is a good placement, pointing to general ease with communications, getting your message across clearly, and a more flowing ability to learn. It’s a more communicative time, and also strong for curiosity, learning, sharing, and teaching. Today, there could be a frustration with communications, and circumstances may be such that you question a learning path or interest. If your life has become too busy with inconsequential things, you’ll be feeling that now.
Mercury begins its transit of your solar second house, Pisces, where it will transit until mid-April. This is a more patient time generally speaking, and also a good period for dealing with business and money matters logically and reasonably. Today, circumstances may be such that you recognize the need to let go of certain possessions or even attitudes towards business and money matters in order to move forward. De-cluttering can be important now. Priorities may become clearer today.

BALANCE OF SIGNS
Scores: Aries 6; Taurus 2; Gemini 0; Cancer 0; Leo 4; Virgo 0; Libra 0; Scorpio 0; Sagittarius 1; Capricorn 1; Aquarius 0; Pisces 3
Initiating, pioneering energy. Independent, bold, courageous, assertive, fiery, inspirational, direct, decisive. Can be egotistical, impulsive, impatient, aggressive, lacking subtlety.
Self-confident, generous, warm-hearted, powerful leader, dramatic. Can be overly proud, vain, extravagant, arrogant.
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 7; Fixed 6; Mutable 4
The modes are balanced in this chart.
LUNAR PHASE: FIRST QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 135 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are motivated to take action, perhaps due to a clash, conflict, or stress, as we are more aware of problems and differences now. Plans are beginning to take off or turn a corner. We should watch for pushing too hard.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on March 30th:
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).
