WEL­COME TO THE AS­TRO­LOG­I­CAL NEW YEAR’S EVE, when en­ergy builds as the spring equinox ap­proaches. Let’s re­view where we stand, no­tice what we’ve learned and ac­com­plished, and sketch out what we need to em­power us in the year ahead, so that spring’s rocket fuel sends us in a good di­rec­tion.

The moon starts the party when it en­ters en­thu­si­as­tic fire-sign Leo on Fri­day. The week­end brings an event­ful rest­less­ness and en­cour­ages us to plant seeds of fer­tile new be­gin­nings, though seeds of fu­ture dis­con­tent may also take root. The en­er­giz­ing sun en­ters brash fire-sign Aries on Satur­day and ini­ti­ates spring, and thought­ful Mer­cury fol­lows on Mon­day. They join Mars, al­ready in proac­tive Sagittarius, to light a fire un­der us, mov­ing us out of any lin­ger­ing low- en­ergy, foggy, dis­pers­ing Pis­cean dol­drums and in­creas­ing the heat un­der ev­ery al­ready sim­mer­ing pot in the political land­scape. Aries loans us courage, di­rect­ness, and the ten­dency to act with­out think­ing through con­se­quences.

Over the week­end this en­ergy is soft­ened by a ro­man­tic, ide­al­is­tic Venus-Nep­tune con­junc­tion in Pisces. Keep eyes open for new con­nec­tions of all kinds — for ro­mance, spir­i­tual brethren, and cre­ative col­lab­o­ra­tors, but stay in the present with one an­other. This mo­men­tum runs smack into some tough con­fronta­tional aspects, as al­ready in­flamed political dif­fer­ences can re­ally square off as ex­pan­sive, lib­eral Jupiter squares con­trac­tive, con­ser­va­tive Saturn. On Wed­nes­day, the Aries sun op­poses the Libra full moon in a lu­nar eclipse and spot­lights any ten­sion be­tween our needs to ex­press our­selves and the com­pro­mises nec­es­sary to cre­ate a healthy re­la­tion­ship. We process that un­fold­ing story over the rest of the week.

FRI­DAY, MARCH 18: The Leo moon calls us to en­gage with one an­other, but lin­ger­ing Pisces en­ergy can leave us tired and eas­ily over­whelmed. The morn­ing calls us to re­view and re­mem­ber. Af­ter an abrupt im­pa­tient midafter­noon, the mood mel­lows into a so­cia­ble evening.

SATUR­DAY, MARCH 19: The changes be­gin as the Leo moon, Uranus, and Saturn form a grand trine in in­sti­gat­ing fire signs. The door­way opens to spring; reach out and con­nect, in­ves­ti­gate, and f lirt. This morn­ing is rich and in­ter­est­ing, af­ter­noon brings a lazy spell, and the evening rocks. Feel magic in the air as Venus con­juncts Nep­tune overnight.

SUN­DAY, MARCH 20: Morn­ing stays mag­i­cal, though we may feel a bit fried no mat­ter what we did last night. Take prac­ti­cal ac­tion on yes­ter­day’s new pos­si­bil­i­ties. Rest and prac­tice pa­tience this evening.

MON­DAY, MARCH 21: We shouldn’t get dis­cour­aged on this fuzzy-think­ing morn­ing. Share a sweet mo­ment and of­fer en­cour­ag­ing words mid­day, be­fore our repar­tee gets snap­pier in the best and worst of ways around din­ner­time.

TUES­DAY, MARCH 22: The mood is oddly wan­der­ing and peri­patetic. It’s a good day to grow our un­der­stand­ing, but it’s a tough day to build mo­men­tum. Re­la­tion­ship is­sues need gen­tle at­ten­tion.

WED­NES­DAY, MARCH 23: Speak with di­rect hon­esty and com­pas­sion on this po­ten­tially event­ful day. The morn­ing’s lu­nar eclipse high­lights in­ter­per­sonal ten­sion and con­flict­ing needs. No­tice ten­sion be­tween the right to free speech and diplo­matic fair­ness, the loud and an­gry needs of in­di­vid­u­als ver­sus the col­lec­tive.

THURS­DAY, MARCH 24: Stay hon­est and keep the heart open. Find facts this morn­ing and be so­lu­tion- ori­ented as peo­ple show their dif­fi­cult edges mid­day. Make de­ci­sions this af­ter­noon for the long haul rather than the short term.
