Moonday Monday, Your Weekly Forecast 3/19-3/25

It's Monday!

This week is full of lots of strong energy pushing things forward for us. Our Sun enters Aries on the 20th marking the beginning of the astrological year and Ostara, the Spring Equinox. You will be able to read a blog I wrote on the subject over at, keep an eye out! On Thursday we have our fast moving planet Mercury stationing Retrograde in Aries until April 15th, which could have things moving faster than usual and maybe not in the ways we intended. Expect a lot of heat within building up and wanting to be expelled. There is a large potential for accidents, outbursts, and disagreements. It will be wise to slow down, but keep pushing forward in a healthy way. Find ways to expel your energy by moving heat through the body and taking action towards things that need priority.

Monday 3/19

Moon Void of Course 12:29PM in Aries

Moon enters Taurus 6:07PM

Our Moon still in Aries for the morning will help us in driving things forward until it goes void of course for the majority of the afternoon and evening. You may feel the wind blowing out of the sails around 12:30. Take it slow until the evening when we begin to feel a bit more grounded again with the Moon entering the stabilizing sign of Taurus. With the Moon in Taurus for the evening we may feel a need to hunker down at home doing something that is calming and helps us to connect to our bodies in a healthy way.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Conjunct Uranus in Aries 12:29PM

This transit may have us feeling emotionally ungrounded and like we need a break from our routine. We may begin to question things we find mundane in our lives and we may experience an urge for freedom. Maybe doing something out of the ordinary in the middle of the day will help you feed this urge. Try to be patient and move slower than you want to as there is room for accidents.

Moon Trine Mars in Capricorn 8:36PM

This energy helps ground us in the evening and has us possibly feeling the urge to do an evening work out, hike, or to get things done in our home environment. Use this energy to be productive. You may feel anxious if you sit around doing nothing.

Mercury in Aries Conjunct Venus in Aries 9:02PM

Mercury and Venus coming together in the evening hours in the action oriented sign of Aries could have us feeling the heat well into the evening. This may be a time where we feel strong sexual energy, and if we are in a relationship, we may feel more aggressive when it comes to initiating things in the bedroom. On the other hand, this can ramp up communication and may give us the confidence to speak our truth around who we are and what we need in our relationships to others as well as the way we establish our identity in the world. While this transit it is happening we may be more assertive and the ego will be running the show. Be mindful with your communication as there is potential to hurt the person on the receiving end. On the positive we may have more confidence to go after what we want.

Tuesday 3/20

Vernal/Spring Equinox

Sun enters Aries

Moon in Taurus

Our Sun enters Aries and the beginning of Spring is upon us. We celebrate the rebirth of all animals and plants on this day. With our Moon in Taurus we may feel more connected to the Earth. Spending time outside smelling the flowers, connecting to nature, and feeding the body with good food will serve us well. You will be able to read about this and receive instructions on a Spring Equinox Ritual I wrote over on

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Trine Saturn in Capricorn 9:05AM

With the Moon in Taurus in a harmonious Trine with Capricorn in the morning we will feel more connected to our bodies and getting things done in the physical. This is a great energy for a morning work out and focusing on connecting to the Earth.

Sun enters Aries 9:16AM

With the Sun in Aries we feel a rejuvenation of the soul. It is time to connect to who we are in our image of ourselves and how we identify with our own power. We may feel a stronger sense of self or a need to establish that sense of self in a more clear and direct way. This is a time for rebirth and renewal around who we are and what we want out of our lives.

Moon Sextile Neptune in Pisces 7:42PM

This transit helps us to visualize more of what we want to manifest from our dreams into real life. We may feel a sense of wonder about the world. This could spark an urge for creativity in our evening or wanting to focus on self care or sharing love with others.

Wednesday 3/21

Moon Void of Course 10:21AM

Moon enters Gemini 10:30PM

With the Moon Void of Course for most of the day we may feel a bit "off." It will be important to take things slow and not put too much force into trying to make things go your way. Go with the flow and take it easy.

With the Moon entering Gemini in the evening we could end up overthinking things in our minds and have a hard time falling asleep. You could benefit from doing an evening work out before this transit hits to help you tire out before bed.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Trine Pluto in Capricorn 6:58AM

With the Moon in Taurus in a harmonious aspect to Pluto in Capricorn in the early morning we may feel like we want to change things on the physical. We could feel a need for transformation. You may want to rearrange something, eat something you normally don't in the morning, or change up your routine. Emotionally we could be feeling restless and like we need a change. Do something out of the ordinary to help feed this energy.

Moon Opposition Jupiter in Scorpio 10:21AM

This transit can have us feeling emotionally off. It will be wise to not put too much stock into any issues from our past that come up to the surface out of nowhere. Try to work through the feeling and move on with your day. We may feel emotionally uncomfortable while this transit is taking place. Resistance towards getting things done in the physical may slow us down.

Thursday 3/22

Moon in Gemini

With the Moon in Gemini the day that Mercury stations Retrograde, we could find ourselves overthinking things and having a hard time emotionally connecting to our thoughts and others. If Mercury Retrograde causes stress for you, you will only enhance that stress by thinking about it. Try to be mindful of what thoughts you are feeding into about yourself throughout the day and work on building confidence rather than self doubt.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Mercury Retrograde in Aries 5:19PM

Mercury Retrograde in Aries has the potential to slow things down or speed things up depending on what end of the spectrum we fall on. Mercury is the fast moving planet of communication and technology and with it Retrograde in a sign like Aries we may see more fouls around the way people communicate with each other. There is a potential for accidents, arguments, misunderstandings, and conflict around getting our point across. Mindfulness and slowing down is advised as even those with good intentions will have a difficult time avoiding conflict. Try not to rush into anything, be extra mindful on your daily commute. This transit lasts until April 15th.

Moon Square Neptune in Pisces 11:40PM

Dreams will be enhanced in the evening and we could find ourselves having not so pleasant ones. In every nightmare is a lesson. Write down your dreams in the morning to decode the guidance.

Friday 3/23

Moon in Gemini

Void of Course 8:52PM

The Moon in Gemini for the majority of the day will have us wanting to move things forward faster than usual. With Mercury Retrograde we will want to be mindful with how we express ourselves to others. We could feel impatient throughout the day. Try to slow down.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Sextile Venus in Aries 10:07AM

This energy allows for us to mentally connect to our ego in a productive way. We may feel like we have a lot of good ideas in the early morning that need to be shared or expressed. Do something to help fuel self love in the morning.

Venus in Aries Square Pluto in Capricorn 4:13PM

This energy will enhance a personal need for transformation within and around us. We may feel like we want to change something about our appearance or our lives which is typically not advised during Mercury Retrograde. Trust your instincts and do something that will help you feed the inner need for physical and spiritual transformation.

Moon Sextile Uranus in Aries 8:52PM

This energy enhances the desire for change and we mentally could feel quite restless in the evening. It may be positive for you to do something that frees you from the parts of your life that feel more restrictive and mundane. Do something you normally wouldn't do on a Friday night.

Saturday 3/24

First Quarter Moon

Moon enters Cancer 1:53AM

With the First Quarter Moon in Cancer, our need for self care going into the weekend is enhanced. Sensitivity and emotions will be running high throughout the day. Unplug and take a "you" day. First Quarter Moons are best used for setting intentions and focusing on manifestation. This energy is best for connecting to the divine feminine and focusing on self love.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Square Sun in Aries 8:35AM

This transit can have us feeling extra sensitive around our sense of self and how we identify to our own ego. We may feel insecure in the morning and like we need extra attention and validation from those around us. We could also feel more selfish and like we want to spend our time alone feeding into this energy. It would be best to focus on building yourself up from within rather than trying to tear yourself down. Be careful with how you express what you are feeling to others and do not blame others for how you are feeling at this time. This is going to be all about you.

Moon Opposition Mars in Capricorn 8:36AM

This energy causes a lot of tension for us on the emotional front. It will be hard to get things done during this transit and we could feel pulled in two different directions, one where we feel a need to get our list of priorities done, and another where we just want to hunker in and do nothing. You may want to focus on a little bit of both to feel good about your day.

Sun in Aries Square Mars in Capricorn 9:08AM

This energy causes a lot of tension for us in the morning with how we assert ourselves and how we get things done. We may be more accident prone so we will want to be careful. Moving heat through the body and doing a work out is a good way of releasing this tension, but still be slow and careful as you are more likely to hurt yourself.

Moon Opposition Saturn in Capricorn 4:37PM

Another tension causing and difficult energy for the day. We may feel emotionally triggered by structures in place that we feel oppressed by. Little things we normally don't mind doing might feel extra hard to get done. Mundane things like cleaning, cooking, or normal errands we do on the weekends. Try to give yourself a break and just take it easy. It's ok to move slow and get less done than you normally would. For some of us this tension might actually help us do more and be more productive. Whatever helps you in the end is worth your time.

Sunday 3/25

Moon in Cancer

Void of Course 11:58PM

Self care Sunday should be in full effect with our Moon in Cancer. Try to take it easy and nurture your heart as you will be sensitive and in need of some down time.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Square Mercury in Aries 5:54AM

This energy could potentially have us in a disagreement with someone we care about. It would be best to hit snooze on the alarm and sleep in. Avoid talking about anything too serious as you may not communicate what you want in an effective way.

Moon Opposition Pluto in Capricorn 1:41PM

Tension with our Hearts and what we are doing in our lives could come up. We may feel a deep need for transformation and we may want to change something we are doing in the physical around work or our home life. This tension could be best served by rearranging something in the home or doing something productive to feed the need for transformation.

Moon Trine Jupiter in Scorpio 4:32PM

We may feel emotionally more in tune to what is going on at a deep level when this transit occurs. We may feel overly emotional and connected to deep parts of ourselves that have been buried. This would be a good period for some down time and self care.

Moon Square Venus in Aries 5:58PM

Tension in our hearts runs high and we could be feeling insecure. Focusing on self care, self love, and gratitude will be key in grounding the energy.

Moon Square Uranus in Aries 11:58PM

If we are still awake for this transit there is potential for emotional outbursts and perceptions of the self that are skewed from the insecurity we felt in the earlier part of the day. Dreams could be enhanced in calling out where the pain is stemming from. Try to go to bed early to avoid staying up late and overthinking things that may not be coming from a grounded place. Try to remember your dreams in the morning to decode the messages from the subconscious. They will hold the key of what needs to be worked through at this time for healing and growth.
