eep on watch for Tues­day. The new moon in Tau­rus fu­els all mat­ters to do with money, self-worth, own­er­ship, re­sources, and sur­vival. In­vig­o­rated by two plan­ets on sig­nif­i­cant sign changes, it is no or­di­nary new moon. The big news of the day is the ingress of Uranus into Tau­rus, a tran­sit we haven’t seen in 84 years. Any­one born from 1934 to 1942 will have Uranus in Tau­rus as a na­tal signature.

Uranus in Tau­rus, a tran­sit that will ex­tend to 2026, rev­o­lu­tion­izes every­thing we con­sider of value, from ac­tual money to the worth we place on per­son, place, con­cept, or thing. The pro­lif­er­a­tion of the bit­coin in­dus­try and the le­gal­iza­tion of recre­ational pot are well aligned with this tran­sit. The re­new­able-en­ergy in­dus­try is also; it is one of the most fruit­ful abun­dance-gen­er­at­ing po­ten­tials of for­ward thinker Uranus in Tau­rus.

Uranus in Tau­rus is also a desta­bi­liz­ing in­flu­ence. As the shock-and­trauma planet makes its way through the sign of the Earth, it also de­scribes what we’ll face if the de­ci­sion mak­ers con­tinue to stub­bornly in­sist on bury­ing their heads in Al­berta oil­sands.

Also, on new-moon Tues­day Mars be­gins an ex­tended tour of Aquar­ius. Mars on the move is usu­ally a six-week tran­sit, but due to a ret­ro­grade cy­cle (end of June through end of August), Mars will ten­ant Aquar­ius through to the mid­dle of Novem­ber. So­cial trends, rev­o­lu­tions, and pol­i­tics will stay di­alled up. Ex­plore more; ex­per­i­ment; lib­er­ate your­self. Per­sonal and life­style rein­ven­tion is well timed.

ARIES

March 20– April 19

May 21–June 21

Mer­cury, Uranus, and Mars aim to shake, not stir, es­pe­cially on Sat­ur­day/sun­day and Tues­day/ Wed­nes­day.

Mars in Aquar­ius keeps you feisty and en­er­gized, per­haps a bit cranky or moody, too, es­pe­cially Sat­ur­day/ Sun­day and Tues­day/ Wed­nes­day.
