jupiter in capricorn squares retrograde juno in libra at 6:00pm, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. mythologically jupiter and juno were husband and wife. he regularly cheated on her and the contemporary (patriarchal) version of their myth has their relationship based on lack of equality, dishonesty and infidelity. jupiter/juno can highlight issues in partnerships- romantic, business and otherwise- where there is lack of equality and disparity between give and take. seeing where the scales are imbalanced and tuning into if you are taking more or giving more and what needs to be done about it is key.
tuesday march 3rd-
the sun in pisces semisquares saturn in capricorn at 4:49am, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet of discipline and limitation. this morning both sun and venus make tense aspects to saturn- making it a very ‘get real’ and ‘deal with reality’ kind of morning. the sun in pisces is idealistic, dreamy and otherworldly- but saturn is very much about the here and now. getting more grounded, discerning, practical and masterful is key. this can show up in the dream time so pay attention to your dreams for important messages from the Unconscious.
at 8:44am venus in aries square saturn in capricorn, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. from 2/27 until now venus has been triggering the saturn/pluto conjunction and the pluto/eris square. big things have been up in love and money situations, our values, self worth and self Love. venus in aries is independent and fiery but she can also be too aggressive and not collaborative or relational. knowing when to act, express anger, set a boundary or say no is needing to be balanced by knowing when to hold back, collaborate or compromise and reign in reactivity. venus/saturn is a get real aspect that demands we SEE WHAT IS in relationships and financial situations so that we can then figure out what needs to be done or even can be done going forward. if you feel depressed right now- know that this, too, shall pass. use this astrology to get clear on what you are committed to, what is not aligned and what you are willing to do about it!
chiron cojoins mean black moon lilith at 4’06 aries at 4:22pm, linking the Wounded Healer with the Dark Goddess. chiron exposes what is wounded and in the shadow- and with lilith this can arise in relationships with the feminine, in sisterhood communities and with sisters (biological and otherwise), in relationship to the anima within (the inner feminine in men) or with women in our lives in general. lilith in aries is the Warrior Goddess who is fierce, powerful and willing to not only stand up but also FIGHT for what she believes in. in august lilith will make her way to cojoin eris- the other Warrior Goddess energy- so from now until then we are building to some incredibly powerful astrology!!! this can see the rise of women, women claiming their voices and the me too movement expanding even more. chiron is brining opportunities for healing- but first he will reveal what is wounded, toxic, repressed or acted out in that is not healthy. for some of us- the healing journey requires we take a stand, express anger, say no! for others our healing journey is being less aggressive and selfish- so we can be more collaborative and relational. honest self checkins about where your growth edge is key ;).
wednesday march 4th-
at 3:07am retrograde mercury moves back into aquarius, bringing his revision/review energy into our communities, friendships, visions, ideals and dreams. rethinking our thoughts and perception and making sure we are not just coming from the head up/neck up (i.e. disconnecting from emotion, feeling and intuition) is key.
pluto in capricorn trines vesta in taurus at 4:22am, linking the planet of Transformation and Empowerment with the Priestess asteroid Goddess of devotion and focus. pluto is helping us dive deep and vesta is helping us get super focused what really matters. in the earth signs governing career and finances this could be exceptional for transformation and empowerment around our work and abundance generated through it. this is also great for transforming our values and deepening our devotion to self love and self worth (vesta is in taurus after all).
mercury at 29 aquarius sextiles venus at 29 aries at 1:24pm, linking the mind and heart at the karmic completion degree! this can be a great day to have heart to heart talks where thoughts/feelings are shared that help bring things to completion and endings. this could be complete endings and moving on or endings of chapters that give way to new beginnings. the key is to have mind and heart in Union so that we we compassionate in our speaking and humble and open in our listening <3
at 7:07pm venus moves out of aries and into taurus, moving from mars rulership to her own rulership where she is much more comfortable! this shifts the Goddess from yang to yin, assertive to receptive, independent to interconnected and relational! the coming weeks of venus in taurus’ journey are a time to enjoy the sensual, physical world. venus in taurus oozes abundance, sensuality, softness, pleasure and connection. it’s a great time to find more stability, solidity and security both financially and in relationships. just watch out for the shadow side of venus in taurus: being too self indulgent, entitled, lazy and resistant to change.
sun in pisces semisquares venus in taurus at 8:55pm, creating a minor aspect of tension between the conscious self and ego and the Goddess of Love and Beauty. the sun in pisces wants to dissolve, surrender, merge and be one with everything. venus in taurus wants to be embodied, grounded, sensual and part of the material world. with opposite needs and desires the key is to find balance. being aware of where we are checking out (too much pisces) or overindulging (too much venus in taurus) is key.

venus in taurus semisquares neptune in pisces at 9:36pm, creating tension between the lower and Higher Hearts. venus/neptune is romantic, idealistic and can indulge in fantasy. venus in taurus wants perfection in the body and physical experience, neptune in pisces wants perfection in the spirit and soul. this can be uber romantic it can also be completely out to lunch, ungrounded, spiritual bypassing and addictive- using romance, sex, money, physical things as a means to indulge and escape. being aware is key <3
sunday march 8th-
at 5:23am the sun cojoins neptune at 18’23 pisces, aligning the conscious self and ego with the planet that dissolve ego boundaries. this is great for mysticism, creativity, intuition and spirituality but it’s not so great for seeing reality, being grounded and seeing through illusion. do an honest self check in where you may be in denial or escaping and take time to meditate and reflect today.
the mean node of the moon square mean black moon lilith in aries at 12:16pm, creating a T square between our destiny, our karma and the fierce Dark Feminine. from 3/3-3/10 we are in an interesting alignment of chiron/lilith and the nodes- bringing HUGE opportunities to shift out of karmic patterns and into new evolutionary directions. issues arising in relationships with women, sisters, in sisterhood communities and with the feminine within are to be tended to with care right now! being dominant, controlling, rigid or resistant to change does not serve!
at 12:38pm venus cojoins uranus at 4’01 taurus, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener! venus/uranus brings sudden and unexpected energy into relationships, finances, our values and more. where venus in taurus likes stability and security- uranus likes change, freedom and revolution! change is in the air! if you resist change it won’t be so much fun but if you embrace it you could get a new lease on life. there could be new people coming into your life right now- and perhaps at the same time others leaving your life or relationships endings. navigating endings and new beginnings with conscious is key.
neptune in pisces sextiles pallas in capricorn at 7:17pm, linking the planet of imagination and mysticism with the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. this can be amazing for bringing dreams and visions into manifestation and embodiment. neptune in pisces sees beyond the veil and into the realms of the Unconscious while pallas athena in earthy grounded capricorn is practical, logical and focused on WHAT IS. united potential with actuality, dreams with reality is key today!
the sun in pisces semisquares uranus in taurus at 8:40pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego with the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener. sun/uranus can be great for sudden insights, intuitions and awareness but it can also be ungrounded, chaotic, confused and illusory. the sun made 3 semisquares this week to saturn, venus and uranus- challenging us to bring our heads out of the clouds and into reality so we are dealing with reality (particularly work/career and money situations) with clear discernment and awareness.
venus in taurus semisextiles chiron in aries at 9:15pm, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Wounded Healer. healing is possible when we are willing to feel our emotions. being in touch with anger, rage and the Inner Masculine is key. some of us are disconnected from these and tend to project them out onto others. if we over identify with being relational and venusian we will disconnected from the mars/aries archetype and others will live it for us- often in extreme ways. some of us overdo the mars/aries energy which can express in shadow as selfishness, aggressiveness, combative energy and me first attitudes. the challenge then is to be more relational, think of others and be aware of other people’s needs. checking in and doing the work to find balance is recommended <3
have a beautiful week!
