I’m a couple days late this week, my apologies! I’ve spent most of my time fasting, preparing for Spring, and had several clients, and updating the Weekly Forecast slipped my mind. Guess I should use a calendar to keep all of my plans together so nothing gets missed again!
This week, the Sun is finishing up its time in Pisces, and we are moving onto the restart of the Zodiac by moving into Aries starting this Saturday, March 20th at 5:37 AM. With Aries being the first sign of the Zodiac, the presence marks the beginning of something energetic and turbulent. Aries is a Fire sign, the sign of the Lamb, and also starts the beginning of Spring. Aries is an impulsive but brave sign, motivated by the desire to conquer. You might have a bit of distraction, or no solid plans on just *how* to finish goals, but the energy and will to do it somehow will still be in play!
Mercury, which has been in an extended-stay in the sign Aquarius due to the Retrograde cycle earlier this year, will be finally moving into the sign of Pisces starting March 15th. Mercury, which is a planet of day-to-day communications, expressions and relationships, will move into having us thin more visually, intuitively, and imaginatively. We’ll guess well, express ourselves with imagery, and will be more attracted to consciousness-raising information. There should be a better flow of our communication, although possibly a little more emotional due to the differences between Aquarius and Pisces.
Also happening this week is the Spring Equinox, which will also be arriving Saturday, March 20th at 5:37 AM. You may have been feeling a desire to be more active, get out and socialize a little more, and do some deep cleaning and reorganizing (also known as Spring Cleaning!). Just as we cleanse the physical, I like to take time to cleanse the mind and the body, which is why I’ve been doing a couple of fasts and deepening my meditation practice. Later this week, I will be posting about different Spring celebrations, different terms and beliefs on this change in seasons, so look to your inbox for the next post!
