Some weeks seem to belong to Venus, but this week belongs to Mercury.
Mercury at 27 degrees Taurus trines Saturn in Virgo at 7:14 pm on Tuesday. People with contacts to this aspect will be able to reason, concentrate, organize, and control themselves. You respect experience and can benefit from seeking advice from someone older or respected in a given field. On the other hand, Mercury is so close to Algol; don’t talk yourself into jumping off a cliff with all the other lemmings.
Mercury in Taurus squares Neptune in Aquarius early Wednesday at 6:39 am. This is Mercury’s last aspect before entering Gemini. Mercury is lost here, with fuzzy Neptune making him unsure of his facts, and unable to read his map. On the other hand, your sensitivity and intuition may be keen. If you feel a bit spacey, try a spritz of rosemary or peppermint to clear your head. Artists should by all means concentrate on their muse; the rest of us may have to scribble into our journals all the amazing thoughts that drift thru our heads
Mercury enters its home sign of Gemini on Thursday at 1:41 am. Mercury here is much, much faster than in Taurus. Where before you may have had bosses hem and haw over what to do, while they consider the data, now they will snap out decisions in rapid-fire fashion. The downside of Mercury here is that there can be a whole lot of talking without any real communication, often getting bogged down in collecting trivia and rumor. But when a Gemini is able to focus, he/she can communicate with a great variety of people, and do so clearly and logically. They can also direct people to sources of information.
Jupiter enters Aries Sunday at 2:28 am. Have faith in your own path, and your leadership abilities will emerge. I once knew a first-degree Aries who rounded up neighbors for a block rummage every year; this was just one of her projects. Do you have anything in Aries that will be contacted by the Jupiter transit? If so, be prepared to get your ideas off the ground.
Mars enters Virgo Monday at 2:11 am. The downside of Mars in this sign is that Virgo always wants to be right all the time, and acknowledged as such. Virgo may also be too quick to criticize and judge; focus less on errors than on shaping students or staff to a desired quality level. The upside of Mars here is that Virgo is so good at assisting others to straighten out their lives, whether by showing them how to balance a checkbook, or resolving credit card addictions, or creating a schedule for personal progress. You’d have to check your intolerance of imperfection at the door, however.
A New Moon at 21 degrees, 24 minutes of Gemini arrives at 7:15 am Saturday. Start a newsletter, blog, or journal to capture every insight and factoid that crosses your mind. Resolve to improve personal communications with less talk and more of a personal connection.
A New Moon on Tuesday at 13 degrees Gemini is especially powerful as it conjuncts Venus, the Sun, and Mercury and also sextiles Mars in Leo. This is a LOT of Geminian energy, creating a lot of chatter, messaging, and news reports, but with Mercury retrograde I think that much of our efforts will have to be repeated, done over, or corrected after Mercury goes direct. Possibly facts will come to light that show where errors in calculations were made, such as with space modules that were programmed incorrectly and crash into their targets. The sextile to Mars is funny because the NASA module just landed on that planet, but Geminians might meet their significant other at a party or get married, or just have a great time playing sports. Mercury is also squaring Uranus — giving problems with electronic or mechanical objects — and trining Neptune and the North Node — giving you a chance to revisit metaphysical subjects or personal growth life-paths. The number 13 is a soul number, meaning that events initiated on this day may not prosper materially, but you will find spiritual growth in facing challenges or studying metaphysical books.
PS – Saturday should be a GREAT day to hold a rummage sale! Mercury, Sun, Venus all conjunct each other in the early am, meaning that buyers and sellers agree on a price.
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.

It has all kinds of goddess info to help you tune into your style of relating to social, societal and relationship matters.

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.
Sunday the 24th starts off with a Sun square Saturn — hearing the word ‘no’ wherever you go does nothing for one’s mood. Stick to routine activities instead, while digging up hard data to back up your presentation at work. Tuesday is favorable for hearing ‘yes’ especially if asking out a certain someone.
