Spring Equinox, Your Astrocast 3/15-3/21
Blessings mystics and seekers!
Hope you all had a wonderful New Moon in Pisces last week! It was a very rejuvenating time for me, I hope it was for you all as well!
This weekend we are celebrating the 1 year anniversary of The Mystic Parlor as well as the Spring Equinox! The Spring Equinox in astrology is considered to be the true new year, and this date will forever be special to me as it is the day that Evelyn and I opened the doors to The Mystic Parlor, which ended up being the first day of official closure due to Covid 19 here in the state of California. What an emotional time it was for us. We had to cancel our plans to have a grand opening party, and opted for a virtual opening that day instead. Afterwards we packed the entire store up that we had tirelessly spent months getting together and felt overwhelmed by the impending sense of doom looming over the world, having no idea when, if ever, we would be able to return to the shop. A whole year later, I am so happy that the shop has been able to stay open. I can’t believe that we started a business during a pandemic and also made it through 2020. Its been one hell of a year, and while I no longer co-own, nor work inside the shop, I am so grateful to have been a part of its birth!
The Spring Equinox is an incredibly powerful time as we welcome in Aries season and the rebirth of Spring. Happy Birthday Aries people! Aries is the cardinal fire sign of the zodiac ruling the 1st house in astrology. The 1st house represents our personal relationship to our sense of self and identity. We also have a couple other major energy shifts with Mercury entering Pisces on Monday, and Venus entering Aries on Sunday. Both Mercury and Venus are in detriment in these placements, meaning that they are opposite energies than what is normally comfortable for them. I like to think of detriments as an opportunity for integration of opposites.
This week we do best to welcome in new and refreshing transitions of energy, no matter how ungrounding it may feel. Let go of your past self, and be open to a whoever is trying to emerge within you. This is a great opportunity for starting something new.
On a personal note, I have a bit of a bittersweet announcement to make. April will be my last month doing readings for the foreseeable future. I am enrolling earlier in a certification program to follow my passion working with dogs. As most of you know, I started my dog walking business at the beginning of the year. I am so happy to say it has been going extremely well and I feel a sense of urgency to get my dog training certification so that I can be of more use to my current and future clients. I am so grateful I have been able to do readings professionally for the last 5 years. I can't believe its been 5 years already. I wish I was able to continue doing readings during my program, but it has been a lot for me already continuing the weekly forecast writing on my days off, and doing readings at night after a full work day. My mental energy I feel needs to just have one primary thing I am focusing on at this time, and the program I am starting is extremely extensive and won't be over until the end of the year. I am sure I will end up doing readings again down the road, but this year is going to be focused on working with animals and getting the proper certification so that I can fulfill my future goals.
Thank you to everyone who has gotten readings from me over the years! You have been such a positive part of my life. I still have some availability for April, once my books are full, they are full, and I do not know when I will be opening them back up again. So much love to you all!

All times are Pacific time
Moon in Aries
Moon sextile Jupiter in Aquarius 7:40 am
Mercury enters Pisces 3:26 pm
Moon void of course square Pluto in Capricorn 8:40 pm
Mercury enters the mutable waters of Pisces today, where it is said to be in detriment. Mercury in Pisces is an incredibly intuitive and psychic energy, but can also be prone to getting caught up in illusions and fantasy to the point where it can have a hard time making decisions that are realistic and grounded. Discernment will be important over the weeks that Mercury is in Pisces. While spiritual work may be extremely beneficial, and dreams enhanced, we still need to focus on finding ways to stay grounded. Mercury will be in Pisces until April 4th.
Moon in Aries
Moon enters Taurus 3:56 am

Our Sun makes a harmonious sextile to Pluto today, enhancing our ability to tune into our own sense of personal empowerment, especially when it comes to our dreams and goals.

We could also find ourselves ready to let go or relinquish a previous identity to make room for a new one that is hoping to emerge.

Moon square Jupiter in Aquarius 9:14 pm

Our Moon is exalted in Taurus today which is a very grounding and positive energy. However with a couple hard aspects to Saturn and Jupiter, we could feel some tension throughout the day when it comes to our responsibilities. We benefit from taking a slow, practical approach to the day, and not letting the opinions or energy of others derail us.

We may feel extremely productive over the coming days. This is also a great day to envision a new strategy or plan when it comes to our goals.

Its Aries season! Happy birthday Aries babes! Aries season marks the Spring Equinox and is the astrological new year. Aries is the cardinal fire sign of the zodiac, ruled by the planet Mars and ruling the first house in astrology. Aries people are natural born leaders and have a hard time being told what to do.
Today is also the one year anniversary of The Mystic Parlor! Happy Birthday Mystic Parlor!
It may be hard for us to feel grounded throughout the day with our Moon in Gemini making a trine to expansive Jupiter and hard aspects to Neptune and Pluto. We may have a hard time feeling confident or rational when it comes to our plans. This is a good time to chip away at what you already have in front of you, rather than adding more to your plate. Try to slow down where you can.
