NOW IS SUCH A MAG­I­CAL TIME — we know things, or think we do, as in­tu­ition and il­lu­sion min­gle closely to­gether. But the fairies take our items, and trick­sters play on our col­lec­tive psy­ches. Our fo­cus drifts and wan­ders. Since the last week of Fe­bru­ary, we’ve been swim­ming through a con­fus­ing if in­tu­itive Nep­tu­nian fog, as first the sun, then Mer­cury, and now Venus ap­proach a con­junc­tion with Nep­tune.

No­tice the ir­ri­ta­ble edges in the fog; this week they bring some sharper-think­ing, de­bate- ori­ented aspects that help us work through the fog, but can also leave us ar­gu­ing with no clear grasp of the facts. We can anx­iously speed up when we lose some­thing or feel in­se­cure, but that will make it even more dif­fi­cult to solve the prob­lem. If we can take a deep breath and wait, our per­cep­tion clears and the fairies re­place lost items.

Un­der­neath the sen­si­tive fog, we re­visit the big is­sues of use and abuse of power, and how we can im­prove this sit­u­a­tion, as Jupiter trines Pluto. We may need some down­time this week­end and again to­ward the end of the week if we feel raw. If we don’t take time out to dream, med­i­tate, or cre­ate, then life may slow us down any­way. Rest first, and work with more verve later.

Early next week, we need to think fast and with rigor as men­tal Mer­cury squares hard-work­ing Saturn. This work can bring re­wards in mid­week and give us a fresh un­der­stand­ing or help­ful tools to our sit­u­a­tion.

FRI­DAY, MARCH 11: This morn­ing is edgy but pos­i­tive, though headaches and im­pa­tience arise eas­ily. We can cheer­fully ar­gue or proudly pro­claim our dis­agree­ment as Mars semisquares Pluto. In the af­ter­noon, try to take the edge off dis­com­fort.

SATUR­DAY, MARCH 12: The mood is soft and a bit pas­sive. A sense of vul­ner­a­bil­ity can en­cour­age us to make oth­ers feel guilty if we aren’t get­ting our way, though we can be cozy and cre­ative when we feel safe.

SUN­DAY, MARCH 13: Hu­mor cov­ers up many mi­nor prob­lems, en­ergy comes in spurts, and mo­ments of con­nec­tion help with la­bile moods. It is good to get out and about this morn­ing. Tonight our feel­ings may be eas­ily pricked and a sad­ness washes over us as Venus semisquares Pluto.

MON­DAY, MARCH 14: Even though the en­ergy is scat­tered, we have work to do. Stay in there and sort out prob­lems with your heart and head. Be per­sis­tent. Don’t take other peo­ple’s ten­sions per­son­ally as Venus squares Mars. Prac­tice com­pas­sion, not im­pa­tience, in lov­ing re­la­tion­ships.

TUES­DAY, MARCH 15: Our feel­ings are still change­able and opin­ions shift be­cause of cu­rios­ity and fresh in­for­ma­tion, not co­er­cion. We don’t want to be pushed and re­sent it if some­one tries to play to our fears as thought­ful Mer­cury op­poses Jupiter. In­tro­ver­sion and sen­si­tiv­ity in­creases tonight as the moon en­ters Can­cer.

WED­NES­DAY, MARCH 16: There is un­set­tling news early on as Mer­cury semi-sex­tiles Pluto, but ten­sion eases mid­day. Share com­fort, praise, and re­as­sur­ances as the moon trines Venus and Nep­tune. Our pri­vate lives may have a calm mo­ment, but the head­lines could be in­ter­est­ing.

THURS­DAY, MARCH 17: This morn­ing brings tur­bu­lent mo­ments as the moon op­poses deep Pluto. Mood swings are likely. It is easy to sulk and blame oth­ers, but that doesn’t help. Let’s do our per­sonal home­work and take care of our­selves on this in­tro­verted day be­fore we head into a busy week­end.
