A week ago, we got a wake-up call as Uranus en­tered Aries, and the sun ejected a wild coro­nal plume. Our planet is ring­ing like a bell; our world is chang­ing. We may be trig­gered by our own ver­sion of an earth­quake, large or small, or feel swept away by the big global events that re­mind us that we have one world, and ev­ery­thing that hap­pens af­fects us all.

Uranus now be­gins to square Pluto on and off now through 2016. Uranus cre­ates change, and Pluto rep­re­sents trans­for­ma­tional, elec­tri­cal, and po­lit­i­cal power and per­sonal em­pow­er­ment. Both plan­ets are will­ing to play hard­ball to get the process started. Let’s look at the sto­ries un­fold­ing for clues as to how to do the work at hand.

The week­end be­gins un­der a tough-minded Mer­cury-Saturn op­po­si­tion that makes our minds tena­cious. We tend to hold on to the tough stuff and wres­tle with our worst fears. World events give us plenty to think about. A full Virgo moon this week­end can raise the anx­i­ety level; we may have a ten­dency to hide from that anx­i­ety by fo­cus­ing on blame and fault. To use this Virgo en­ergy best, we need to fo­cus on heal­ing, hope, and im­prove­ment in our­selves, our beloveds, and in the world around us.

On Sun­day, a tough as­pect be­tween Venus and Pluto can make our heart ache and re­mind us of what we may have lost or could lose. We can choose to rise to its call­ing and let our trou­bles bring us to­gether. If our heart hurts from per­sonal loss or in re­sponse to world events, it will help to find some­one who needs what we have.

Spring be­gins with a blast of en­ergy on Sun­day night as the sun en­ters Aries and con­juncts Uranus. The mood is in­tense and rev­o­lu­tion­ary for the first few days of spring. Let us be­gin this sea­son with love and con­nec­tion. Fri­day, March 18: A se­ri­ous, thought­ful morn­ing helps us nail down de­ci­sions and fol­low through on tough chores. Use this te­nac­ity wisely. Later, the af­ter­noon grum­bles. Fix what needs to be fixed, and don’t try to fix one an­other. Tonight, do what heals and soothes the nerves. Satur­day, March 19: The morn­ing is cranky; be care­ful not to waste cre­ative en­ergy look­ing for faults. Later, pri­or­i­tize ca­ma­raderie as the Libra moon op­poses Uranus. We get new lessons in how to work with one an­other, so let’s be good stu­dents. Sun­day, March 20: Hold hands this melan­cholic morn­ing as Venus semisquares Pluto. We feel the pres­sures of life and need a break. The en­ergy picks up as the sun en­ters Aries this af­ter­noon. Raise the roof for the ver­nal equinox and send the en­ergy to good things. Mon­day, March 21: Lis­ten for an ex­cit­ing wake-up call as the sun con­juncts Uranus in Aries. We’re fed up with what doesn’t work, keenly in­ter­ested in in­no­va­tion, and ready to ques­tion pre­con­cep­tions. We work bet­ter alone as the moon en­ters Scorpio. Tues­day, March 22: We need to vent but not at one an­other. Do not ask for fa­vors. Deal with real is­sues and leave the de­tails un­til later. Work on foun­da­tions, base­ments, and wiring. Wed­nes­day, March 23: Give peo­ple room this morn­ing. The mood bright­ens later as the moon en­ters Sagittarius. We need a break, and we want to talk to the wild an­i­mals this af­ter­noon. Thurs­day, March 24: Let a fresh, de­ter­mined hon­esty blow off the dust. Take a day to re­new your­self and find play­ful­ness in strange corners. No­tice where en­thu­si­asm is build­ing and feed those new fires.
