This week of March roars in like a lamb and out like a lion. Mars con­juncts Uranus and squares Pluto next Wed­nes­day. In the time lead­ing up to that, we ex­pe­ri­ence the en­ergy surg­ing and churn­ing. We feel the blus­ter­ing winds through the streets and in our hearts, and hear the blus­ter in the pol­i­tics.

This Mars-Uranus con­junc­tion can pro­duce a po­tent com­bus­tion en­gine that takes us far — if we know where we want to go and how we want to get there. Our tem­pers and en­thu­si­asm can be like flash pa­per, with the Mars and Uranus con­junct in sparky Aries. For most of us, this lit­tle spark of fire is out be­fore the pa­per hits the floor. But if there is other com­bustible ma­te­rial nearby, it can all go up in smoke.

This en­thu­si­asm can ig­nite a new idea or shine a light on what we re­ally need to do. But it can also in­flame an al­ready com­bustible sit­u­a­tion. Be care­ful around ex­plo­sive sit­u­a­tions and han­dle ma­chin­ery and chem­istry with safety in mind. Re­solve to use this en­ergy for short- and long-term goals.

The week­end be­gins with in­ter­est­ing pleas­ant as­pects un­der the friendly moon in Libra and as the sun con­juncts Ch­i­ron. Look for new in­for­ma­tion that changes the mind — or a shift in per­spec­tive over the week­end.

A moody and com­pet­i­tive but pro­duc­tive be­gin­ning of the week calls us to use our com­pe­tence care­fully. Watch mood swings and pay at­ten­tion to what is un­earthed. Mid­week is frus­trat­ing but full of po­ten­tial — if ten­sion starts to knot around you, back off, let it flow, and know that if you re­ally need to say some­thing, you can say it to­mor­row.

Fri­day, March 6: Tend to loose ends. The day me­an­ders and peo­ple can be a lit­tle cranky, but take ad­van­tage of a tem­po­rary is­land of prac­ti­cal­ity. In the late af­ter­noon, a for­mer ir­ri­tant or am­bi­tion can haunt us. Tonight, we need to tell our sto­ries and make con­nec­tions. Satur­day, March 7: On this gen­er­ally so­cia­ble day, we re­mem­ber what didn’t work in the past, but can risk and ex­plore dif­fer­ent paths as the sun con­juncts Ch­i­ron. We’re look­ing for new clothes, habits, mind-sets, pol­i­tics, and maybe a new dance part­ner. Sun­day, March 8 : Dreams may leave us dis­tracted this morn­ing, and there­fore out of sync so­cially, as the moon op­poses Venus. Con­ver­sa­tion picks up by mid­day, and we can feel more con­nected and en­gaged as the moon trines Mer­cury tonight. Mon­day March 9: Watch a de­fen­sive, dif­fi­cult in­ner dia­logue as the moon en­ters Scorpio and trines Nep­tune. Small talk back­fires, but real dia­logue helps. Tues­day, March 10: Mus­cu­lar ac­com­plish­ment and com­pe­ti­tion take place this morn­ing as Mars trines Jupiter. Sabers rat­tle in the dis­tance, but we can choose to be pro­duc­tively as­sertive. We may feel un­usu­ally hun­gry mid­day, and then en­gage in a heal­ing con­ver­sa­tion tonight as the moon trines the sun. Speak to emo­tions — it’s not a log­i­cal time. Wed­nes­day March 11: Ex­pect ac­cel­er­ated ac­tiv­ity and prob­lem-solv­ing bril­liance, along with the need for them. We may want to cut one thing out to have room for an­other. Re­la­tion­ship chem­istry sparks in the best and worst of ways. Be safe — walk away from ar­gu­ments. Feel the ten­sion re­lease as the moon en­ters Sagittarius tonight. Thurs­day, March 12: We pon­der our re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and dreams and try to un­der­stand what we re­ally need to do next. If pos­si­ble, laugh over re­cent dif­fi­cul­ties — find ways to for­give and talk through touchy ma­te­rial. Mer­cury en­ters Pisces tonight, and we need to catch up with our emo­tional pro­cess­ing.
