Seize the opportunity! We have a busy, fruitful day ahead. This is the message always delivered by a Mystic Rectangle, which comes into full formation the morning of Friday, March 30. On this day, in fact, we will be dealing with the Grand Trine, The Mystic Rectangle and the Five-Pointed Star, as well as a Yod. This is the kind of day where true adventurers rub their hands together in excitement and anticipation in stepping through doorways into unknown and unexplored worlds. Yes! is the word of the day.
New Moon in Aries: March 22 at 6:37AM MST
New beginnings, new intentions and new horizons open always on a New Moon, though this one, as every year, marks the time of planting the seeds we want to harvest in the Fall. The Equinox and New Moon coinciding so closely gives us extra bang for our reflective buck as the Sun is beginning its round of the zodiac again and the New Moon demands quietude in setting our direction for the season and the year.
The Ram signals his time to generate new energy in the early Spring, with hope and prayers that Nature will bestow her gifts upon his efforts in order that the desires and visions of this time shall come to fruition. Without her blessing, none of his efforts has meaning. He provides the drive and structure and she bestows the spiritual essence found within each unfolding moment.
The Grand Trine in the Earth signs is moving into exactitude at the Waning Half Moon. Time to enjoy grounding and disruption as one and the same. Mars, Jupiter and Pluto in the earth signs (Virgo, Taurus and Capricorn, respectively) ensures our focus is with the practical and mundane expression of ourselves on the earth plane. Find your center and follow it, without hesitation and doubt. This is where heaven and earth meet.
Mars is in retrograde, as well as in a waning moon phase, so the point here is to let down our sails, regroup and contemplate all that came to fruition during the Full Moon and to stay with reflection and non-action right now. The waters are going still, the wind is going slack. No new projects for the moment.
This Full Moon, at 1:39AM PST, should inspire a very beautiful, resonant sound in all of us. At its exactitude, we have a Grand Trine in the Earth signs: Moon/Mars in Virgo in the 8th house, Jupiter/Venus in Taurus in the 4th house and Pluto in Capricorn in the 1st. And all held within the open palm of the Sun in Pisces/Calypso, goddess and knower of deep emotion and the hidden depths of our souls.
Astronomically, the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus through the month of March (exact on March 13 at about 10PM PST) will be the most spectacular for years to come. They both appear together even now very brightly in the Western sky just after sunset – two beacons of beauty and benevolence that are stunning to see. They will remain visible through the month of March and will return as lovers again in May when they take up their duet in Gemini, but more on that later.
