Fresh en­ergy fills our land­scape as spring be­gins, though pa­tience may be hard to find. Early this morn­ing, the sun and moon con­junct in sub­dued Pisces for a so­lar eclipse. The moon then en­ters brash, fresh Aries, and the sun fol­lows into Aries this af­ter­noon at 4:45 p.m., the mo­ment of the ver­nal equinox.

Ex­pect a week of end­ings and be­gin­nings af­ter last night’s eclipse. We may need to shed peo­ple, events, or work that are not bear­ing fruit to cre­ate room in our gar­den for new growth.

With the sun, moon, Mars, and Uranus all now in the sparky fire sign Aries, we un­der­stand our own needs and po­si­tion so much more clearly than be­fore, but those of oth­ers drift away in the morn­ing mist. We can get stuck in our own per­spec­tive. Mer­cury in Pisces in­spires po­etic think­ing, but we may have some mis­un­der­stand­ings to clean up this week — and we may need ex­tra naps in the sun­shine.

This Aries lineup in­fuses us with en­ergy that is more pos­i­tive, hope­ful, sim­ple, and brave. We need the en­ergy, be­cause it’s time to get the party started. We may wres­tle with un­usual emer­gen­cies or need to rally our re­sources for spring-clean­ing. It only gets com­pli­cated when a sit­u­a­tion sets off in­tense feel­ings. Although the mood is gen­er­ally more cheer­ful and less ex­plo­sive than it’s been for the last few weeks, once a fight be­gins it can quickly spike. Know when to walk away. Luck­ily, Venus in earthy, sen­sual Taurus helps us to be cozy and doesn’t en­cour­age us to let go un­nec­es­sar­ily.

It may be the per­fect time for some rad­i­cal change. With this lineup in Aries, we just won’t put up with dys­func­tion, and we are ready to start anew — if we can only con­cen­trate long enough to do so.

Fri­day, March 20: The en­ergy is wild and will­ful, sweet and di­rect. Look around for fires that need to be put out or op­por­tu­ni­ties that need to be grasped. Take ad­van­tage of a prac­ti­cal streak mid­day, and then get out of peo­ple’s way and en­joy the first mo­ments of spring this af­ter­noon. Satur­day, March 21: Act out, but don’t walk out. We want to leave be­hind old prob­lems and be free and truly alive as the moon con­juncts Uranus mid­day. Tonight, en­joy the bon­fire but don’t burn down the house. Sun­day, March 22: The day is flir­ta­tious and sen­sual as the moon en­ters Taurus and con­juncts Venus. Plant seeds of all types — in the gar­den, the heart, and the mind. But watch out for a posses­sive streak. Mon­day, March 23: As the moon squares Jupiter, we can ap­pre­ci­ate the an­i­mal na­ture of our bod­ies. Pri­or­i­ties may need re­or­ga­niz­ing this morn­ing, but this con­tin­ues to be a won­der­ful time to wake up the soil and ini­ti­ate other projects as well. Tues­day, March 24: The con­ver­sa­tion bub­bles and at­ten­tion spans shorten, but our com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills im­prove as the moon en­ters Gemini. Knuckle down to se­ri­ous work this af­ter­noon, and then en­joy the evening as the moon squares Nep­tune. Wed­nes­day, March 25: As the sun trines Saturn, it in­fuses us with or­ga­ni­za­tional and struc­tural un­der­stand­ing and helps us gain con­trol over a patch of chaos. En­joy a chal­lenge, but don’t try to con­trol oth­ers. Thurs­day, March 26: We may be open-minded but have dif­fi­culty bring­ing the point home this morn­ing. Connect with peo­ple who are feel­ing com­mu­nica­tive. We grow more per­cep­tive but de­fen­sive later on, as the moon en­ters Can­cer. Though we as­sume we’re sen­si­tive to oth­ers’ needs, we might have trou­ble let­ting go of our own agenda.
