Aries Season rolls in this week on Thursday, March 20. Chances are very good it will be a lively one for almost everyone but especially those with personal planets or Ascendant from 9° to 15° in the cardinal signs. The square between Jupiter in Cancer and Uranus in Aries waxes stronger, disturbing the atmosphere and keeping us from being able to settle back into our routines. However the real fireworks are still a week or so off. This week we can enjoy the sense of quickening and renewal the start of a new zodiac year brings. There is already so much angst out there over the Grand Cross I don’t want to add to it.
Wave goodbye to Mercury in Aquarius, all you air signs. It has been wonderful having three planets in air but we all knew it wasn’t going to last that long. On Monday Mercury slips back into the gentle waters of Pisces, retracing steps taken back in the first week or so of February. By Saturday Mercury will exactly conjoin Neptune in Pisces and it will up to us to choose whether to lose our selves in our dreams or choose to spread kindness and compassion around us. We need to get out of our heads and back into our hearts once more.
Venus is still in airy Aquarius and she starts off the week playing footsie with the Jupiter-Uranus square on Monday and Tuesday. First she makes an inconjunct to Jupiter in Cancer and then a sextile to Uranus in Aries. The potential here is to jump all over any excuse to play, often to the point of excess. For those out celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, have a grand time but keep in mind it is a week night and working with a hangover is really, truly unpleasant.
The transition from Pisces to Aries may be less clear cut than usual with Mercury in Pisces in a waxing conjunction to Neptune and water dominating the equinox chart. We can use this to our advantage to stay open and flexible in this time of change. Keeping our options open and having several backup plans in mind makes more sense than holding to one set of expectations.

One of your many secrets to success, Capricorn, is your ability to intuitively grasp the big picture in a holistic manner. What you might want to keep in mind this week is you could slip over the line into wishful thinking, more so as the week goes on.
Over the coming weeks, Aquarius, you may find yourself communicating more frequently with close friends and spending more time running around your immediate neighborhood. This week may bring the need to avoid wishful thinking when it comes to your personal finances.
Making a decent first impression this week, Pisces, may be a little trickier than you may realize and you might end up putting too much “spin” on your presentation. This situation looks to improve next week. Remind yourself the time has come to review your personal financial situation too.
