Astrological news this week: Surprising adjustments with Mars and Venus square Uranus

artist unknown?

Astrological update for the week of March 21, 2022

If you can identify this artist please let me know in the comments! As the week begins the energies of last week’s Equinox are still winding down, forcing adjustments in expectations and laying the groundwork for a new season. The March Equinox occurs when the Sun enters Aries in the tropical system – the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere and the beginning of the zodiacal wheel. Aries is the sign of initiation, of blazing a new trail and forging ahead with courage and confidence, and there is a significant Uranus alignment in the chart of the Equinox.

Uranus is the planet that inspires us to break out of outmoded paradigms and ways of living which no longer fit the current reality, and this week Mars will form a challenging square to Uranus. Mars is in Aquarius right now where the primary motivator is innovation and change but also reason and intelligence, so the added influence of Uranus can help to break down barriers to progress. However, Uranus can inspire Mars to be somewhat reckless so it would be wise to exercise some caution.

Here is what you need to know for the week ahead. (Dates and times are for the Eastern time zone, please adjust for your own locality.)

Monday March 21.  The Moon is newly in Scorpio on Monday, intensifying feelings and evoking a sense of urgency where emotions are concerned. Fortunately a harmonious Mercury/Jupiter aspect culminates in the very early hours on Monday which helps us to find more emotional balance and general good vibes.  Mars builds all day towards a harmonious aspect to Chiron (sextile) to facilitate the flow of natural wisdom and positive energy.

3.29.21. The power of the Libra Full Moon lingers

The Libra Full Moon culminated on Sunday the 28th, but these  lunar energies will prevail over the first few days of the week, and a conjunction of the Sun and Venus straddling Chiron was a potent element of the lunation. You can catch up here if you missed the details.  In English what that means is that the power of Chiron to strip away the veneer of protection and reveal our core wounds so that they can be released once and for all is an important aspect of the Full Moon energies.  The alignment of the Sun and Venus serves as an aid for opening our hearts and releasing negativity, frustration, rage, and resentment — IF we are ready.

It’s been my experience that we can’t release this kind of stuff until we ARE ready.  There has to be a certain amount of processing, intellectual understanding, release of victimhood, cessation of blame.  The conjunction from the Sun to Chiron peaks today and if you experienced a strong reaction to the Full Moon those feelings will likely linger until today’s alignment is complete.

Fortunately, Mercury in Pisces will align with Neptune during the day and culminate at 11:23 pm EDT – this will help us to find the necessary integration and letting go to help approach things from a more creative and spirit-focused point of view. ❤️
