Feel a shift in the winds as Uranus enters Aries tonight and begins a new 84-year cycle. Uranus’ theme is “and now for something completely different.” It has been active in major aspects for the last three years and now enters our most intense sign.
Uranus can turn our life upside down, as we see in a few celebrities blazing out right now — or in more subtle ways, offering us opportunities to find a hidden or underused part of ourselves. It can leave us a little worried or uncertain, as change often does, and we need to be patient while we decide what we’re going to do.
Over the next few weeks, we can expect Uranus to trigger catalytic events that may feel chaotic for a while but create the room to birth a new phase. Maybe we rearrange the furniture, creating a temporary chaos while we find new places. Maybe we haul outmoded concepts of relationship habits and rearrange them in a new form, or notice how new technologies transform our work. Or maybe we begin to change our whole lives and the community around us. Uranus in Aries is not patient and loves a good fight; as a culture, we’ll be more ready to jump into the argument and less willing to back down for the next eight years.
The weekend begins rippling with nerves and possibilities, but back off the pressure early next week. We get moody or just need time as Mercury squares Pluto. Whispers of depression or discouragement call to us, but we don’t have answers. By the end of the week, new opportunities open where the way was blocked; look again and look down unexpected paths. Be in the heart of it, immersed in life and guiding events in a good way.
Friday, March 11: Under a nervy Gemini moon, talking helps us deal with anxiety or pressure. Important things are brewing, and we either want to be a part of them or to run away. Tonight sparks a transformation. Sociable aspects encourage us to gather and talk; feel the creative buzz and connect.
Saturday, March 12: Move furniture, organize a closet, start a garden, pull out the art supplies, or join a rally. We see what needs improvement and feel better once we’re doing something about it. Watch a strong urge to purge — don’t waste resources unnecessarily. Simplify plans this evening.
Sunday, March 13: Resistance kicks in. We may long for easier times as a Cancer moon squares Uranus and Mercury squares Pluto. If trouble sits with us, we get self-protective in response. It may be hard to get the message through, but we need our real issues addressed.
Monday, March 14: People need to know we care about their well-being before they cooperate as the Cancer moon opposes Pluto. Answers are found in something different, not more of the same, as Venus semisquares Uranus. Avoid spouting off under stress tonight; tell the story sympathetically instead.
Tuesday, March 15: Melodrama makes our point as the moon enters Leo and Mercury conjuncts Jupiter. The mood is generous and far horizons can look glorious, but we may naively underestimate the pitfalls. Be generous with information, heart, and the capacity to listen.
Wednesday, March 16: Express things freely but honor the consequences. Over the next few weeks, the conversation gets brighter, and life’s play moves into full swing. Follow up on all leads now.
Thursday, March 17: We have doubts and concerns; if we look carefully, we find flaws in any plan. See the humor this afternoon, and avoid getting mean-spirited in the name of truthfulness. Later, an escapist mood takes over as Mercury challenges Neptune. Avoid crazy drivers.
