March 23: The moon enters Aries
INSPIRATION IN THE DARK
The moon is sextile Jupiter at 4:20 a.m.
The moon in its last moments of Pisces forms a collaborative sextile with Jupiter in dependable Capricorn in the early hours. This starts the week off with a unique blend of meditative emotional states blending with cautious optimism. There is a grounded trust that we can tap into today that all is unfolding as it should, and we feel where we are right where we need to be. The emotional tone of the moment blends well with the slow, steady, sustainable growth that Jupiter wields this year, as Pisces accepts the universal mysteries that are unfolding. As the moon continues drifting out of Pisces, it forms a sextile with Pluto and Mars in Capricorn, a hint that our emotional insight is leading us to perceive the value and effectiveness of our acts toward change.
The moon enters Aries at 5:58 p.m.
In the evening, the lunar tone shifts again, from a state of inward reflection to one of outward action as the moon enters fiery, primal Aries. This lunar position is unique, in that the nearly dark moon asks us to slow down, and reflect, but the impulsivity of Aries stimulates bold expressions. It’s definitely a push-pull effect, and as we are drawn into the mystery of the waning lunar light, our minds and hearts flash with courage, inspiration, and a need to affect change. It could be an interesting inquiry to explore how to hold these two forces in balance within ourselves.
The moon is sextile Saturn at 6:15 p.m.
Shortly after the lunar shift into Aries, the potent moon forms an exact sextile with Saturn, newly in Aquarius. This melding of impulsive, courageous emotional forces with objectivity and clear judgement may be providing an opportunity to seek clarity and justice in a matter that could benefit from some direct discussion. The focus of our tests and trials are shifting over to the world of social systems and structures, possibly evoking some potent, yet necessary emotional awareness.
