Mercury opposes Pluto at 3:15 am Sunday, at 3 degrees Cancer-Capricorn. It is far too easy to become angry, and explode, when others do your share your strongly-held beliefs. It may be not only wise but necessary to avoid controversial topics at meetings and parties. By the same token it is a very poor day to launch any campaign of ideas, whether that means advertising, proselytizing, canvassing, or propagandizing. It may favor amusing yourself with mental puzzles, delving into your own motivations, getting to the heart of a problem, or doing research, since your concentration is good. The news may be dominated by the passing of a major public figure, since Pluto rules passages from one level of existence to another.
The Sun is conjunct a direct Mercury Monday at 8:07 am, at 5 degrees Cancer. This conjunction offers a key indicator of stock market turns up or down. Sales can be brisk on this conjunction, by the way, with buyers and sellers agreeing on a price – usually a good one for the seller.
Mercury at 12 degrees Cancer sextiles Mars at 12 degrees Virgo at 8:19 am Thursday. Words carry an extra emotional punch today, a much better day for making sales calls or doing political canvassing than Sunday, that’s for sure. By the same token, you can use this time to re-program yourself with a new affirmation, destroy negative self-talk, even intone a chant, blessing or ritual in order to shift your fortunes. Incidentally, Mercury is also conjunct Juno, and Mars is conjunct Vesta! This adds a double serving of asteroid or goddess energy to these planets. Vesta asks where is the sense of the sacred (Vesta) in what you do (Mars), and Juno would like to see equal partnerships. You might try casting a love spell, not a controlling spell but one where both parties can express (Mercury) themselves freely and safely with each other. A third layer of energy is in the Mercury conjunction to the South Node at 11 degrees Cancer. You may meet or deal with a person from a past life, over issues that are important to your spiritual development.
So much is going on this week – tons of messages, many of which are quite emotional, many people have gotten happy surprises and I don’t mean just the stimulus checks, and while Venus and Mercury are not close to making a deal they are at least talking at the local coffee shop. Heavy-duty events are in the offing, too, with Saturn and Pluto trining each other in Earth signs; banking and other large corporations will be exacting more fees and laying out more gotchas for the hapless uninformed consumer, and they will do everything they can to keep the news out of the media.
Happy birthday to all the Taureans as the Sun enters your sign this week! Taurus natives include Martha Graham, Fred Astaire, Margot Fonteyn, Helen Tamiris, Shirley MacLaine, Audrey Hepburn — and those are just the dancers! Saturn and Pluto having just entered the other earth signs, trining your Sun, and Jupiter is already in Virgo. The first two can be tough taskmasters, but if you have learned the major lessons of life, you should be in a position to reap the rewards of working in harmony with the Earth. Read up on the effects of biotech crops and speak out for farmers and consumers.
In other news, the planet Pluto and the asteroid Juno become an odd couple for most of the year as they travel in close company. Juno lingers at the very end of Sagittarius and Pluto just entered Capricorn in late January. This will likely force partners to re-evaluate their relationship, and evolve into something healthier. Whether actual psychotherapy or counseling is involved, is up to you. But I feel that working on the relationship issues will bring about a much richer, rewarding and more productive level by fall.
A T-square between Mars in Cancer, Venus in Aries and Jupiter in Capricorn is in place this week. You may hold on to your house in spite of the crisis, but could very well cost you much more in monthly payments.
The Mercury/Sun pair moves into Taurus later this week; Happy Birthday, Taurus, and I am sure that you will get more cards and phone calls than usual this year. Write out your plans for the year Friday, because you can totally rebuild your life just as if your were building a house. Your strength is in what you produce yourself. PS to all – Venus squares Mars end of the month; sexual tension or attraction builds so check who registers on your romance-meter. PPS ALERT: Wed. am. Count your change, because the gremlins can lose track of your money.
Happy Spring Equinox this Thursday the 20th!!! The Spring Equinox is when the Sun enters Aries, so happy birthday to all the fiery Arians. This is followed by the Full Moon on the 21st, at one degree Libra. This can be a touchy day for Librans, so avoid any verbal spats at all costs. Avoid somebody else’s power plays, and dance on the diplomatic high wire.

Thursday afternoon (the 13th) Venus sextiles Pluto – a modest bequest or insurance settlement comes to your attention, altho you may not actually receive it till after Venus opposes Saturn on Saturday. Mars and Mercury also make aspects to either Pluto or Saturn on Friday and Saturday, so watch the mail carefully for legal paperwork. Push serious matters out our mind with a romantic early date Sunday the 16th to watch the sunrise, perhaps with a picnic basket or your morning java fix.

The Moon is conjunct Jupiter Sunday a.m. the 2nd — a fun, jovial mood prevails at the brunch buffet, but try not to overdo on the bakery. But invite extra friends along to multiply the fun. The other major celestial event this week is the Mars opposition to Pluto early Friday a.m. This does not bode well for commuters. At best it means huge traffic snarls, and at worst some multi-vehicle accidents — altho a stock market jittery over the mortgage situation is another possibility.
