Astrology: Spring Equinox Chart & forecasts for March’12

Here’s a quick astrology chart I created for the day when Sun is entering the zodiac sign of Aries!

Solar chart - spring equinox - 20March2013
Solar chart – spring equinox – 20March2013

As you can see, it’s quite basic – Aries is in the rising sign position for simplicity sake, and I’ve looked up Planetary positions from the Ephemeris and placed them on the chart.

Sun is entering Aries (that is what marks the Spring Equinox!),  Mars & Uranus are already in Aries,  Venus & Mercury – currently in Pisces will soon be entering Aries.  (I will be doing a full detailed analysis of each of these planets transiting through Aries, and what that means for Aries people in a separate post).   Of course slow moving Neptune is in Pisces, Pluto in Capricorn (these two will be in those signs for years to come!)  Jupiter- currently passing through Gemini will enter sign of Cancer in late June’13, and Saturn currently passing through Scorpio will continue that for all of 2013.

Sun’s energy shift -With the Sun entering the fire sign of Aries, all the other fire signs (Leo & Sagittarius) are going to get a jolt of fiery energy in resonance. Sun will be in Aries till 20h April’13 of course.

Astrology forecasts for  19th – 31st  March 2013 – good and bad aspects to watch out for

Squares, semi-squares and Oppositions between planets are the major astrological causes of stress and difficulties (or the way some politely put it, `challenging’).  Trines, Sexties and conjunctions between planet tend to create huge positive potential – that everyone can make use of (if you are aware of it…and that’s why I write these forecasts 🙂  ) So those are the aspects that I usually look at.

Note on objectivity when forecasting: When doing these forecasts, I do use my knowledge of the characteristics and qualities of the planets,, signs and aspects – but I also let those mix and flow in my mind, and allow intuition to pick out the ones that come mostly to the surface. (And like all Astrologers, I have to be careful not to get influenced by my own whim and moods – That’s why sometimes, although I like to do these forecasts, I delay writing them – because on a personal level, I may not be objective enough …so best to wait for a time when I can give genuinely objective intuitive forecasts..  And today is one of those days 🙂

Mercury – that has been retrograde for 3 weeks just started going direct (yesterday 17 March 13) so already there will be an energy shift of ease, clearing air etc.  I wrote about this Mercury-direct shift in my blog yesterday.   Something to bear in mind – on 10th March, Mercury (while retrograding) had a square with Jupiter.  Now that Mercury is going direct, it will have that square again .. on 29th March’13. Though not as problematic as before, it will sill bring up issues and stress that must be acted upon and dealt with (or those energies just simmer till next major aspects between these planets and explode again.. So advise sort it..!)

19th March’13- Mercury semi-sextiles Mars.    This is a good one new initiatives or offers may come your way.

22nd March – Mars conjuncts Uranus (in Aries)- Good chaotic day. The day leading up to this is going to be a bit chaotic, and there is every potential for this to be a dynamic and positive day – but seeing Mars is like a fuse and Uranus is the chaotic engine..   things can get out of hand  – or the good stuff can get muddled up in all the apparent barge of incoming energy.  Try to sift out what’s really useful, and focus on that. It is a good one..

24th – Sun semisextile Neptune.   Energy for some dreamy ideas and ideals. Different kind of elusiveness that can produce tangible results. But on then same day, there is a mild stressful aspect between  Jupiter and Saturn – so don’t get involved in power struggles, especially when trying to expand your boundaries.

25th – Mercury semisextile Uranus – dynamic communications can give good outcomes;  Venus semisextile Neptune – quite good for leisure and romance or the arts (and perhaps indulging in some habits bordering on escapism – Don’t over do substances, alcohol etc);

26th- Mars sextiles Jupiter – another great day for huge potential and energy – as these are both fire related planets, forming the second most positively powerful aspect any two planets can form. Aries & Sagittarius people will have a great day (the day leading to it also is good). But the following day sees a major stressful aspect for Aries people, so just start to be careful from midday onwards.

27th- Mars squares Pluto.   Quite stressful – it can build from the previous day, and definitely issues of power, sex, obsessions may come to the surface. Mars here acts like a projectile firing at a plutonium bomb!  Smallest trigger can create a massive explosion, or smallest act can create something that may become quite consuming. On some level, as long as you don’t just ride it out or escape, but make firm (non-controlling) decisions and take action, you come out okay.

28th – A very good day (you may be gasping for it after the previous day!). Sun conjuncts Venus in Aries.   Mercury trines Saturn.  Venus conjuncts Uranus.  Lots of wonderful things can come from this, for love & romance, luxurious ventures, plans or contracts for future. Expect the unexpected, as nice things will come out of the blue!

29th – Sun conjuncts Uranus – so the dynamic and unexpected events continue, but in a positive way.  Very good for Aquarians, Aries (double whammy), and for Leos.  There is also a Mercury sextile Pluto aspect going on.  If you had dealt with the sudden deeper issues that arose a few days ago, this will produce the definite (positive) results. Watch out – don;t fall under the influences of Silver-tongues and be mesmerised and taken to bed (read whatever you like into that!)   One good thing about his day is the slightly bad thing – the repeat Mercury square Jupiter – which in this case may manifest stress (and counter balance an overindulgence or being swept away…) or bit of reality check!   Old stuff from beginning of March’13 need final resolutions – Mind holds the key (think expansively and talk openly).

30th – Bit of a tough day because of 3 minor negative aspects (quincunx) between Sun & Saturn, Venus & Saturn, Jupiter & Pluto.   Authority issues and power struggles at work or in love relationships need addressing; deeply simmering issues may need some spiritual light; Secret relationships may cause problems. Each aspect on it’s own can be okay to just about deal with, but as there are 3 of them – the combined results may well add up to a major stressful day – with issues just washing over one after another, like lots of waves that just doesn’t give you a clear beach.

31st- March ends with a mixed stressful and positive day! The Venus sextile Jupiter creates an energy of fulfilling day for luxury, expansive plans, even romance (good for Sagittarians, Librans and Taureans).  But there is also the Venus square Pluto on the day – so erm, there is a chance for sexual contact or even issues to explode to the surface from the depths. Watch out for controlling partners in relationships. Difficult to know if what;’s happening on this day is a good thing or a bad thing.  What may seem very good may have a darker undertone, and what may seem stressful may actually have a deep reaching transformative energy.

See you in the next astrology post where I will look at the planets Mars, Venus, Sun, Mercury and Uranus ..forming aspects while they are in Aries.
