“We all have and have had hard knocks – truly gutting ones – yet many do not speak of them, they are busy making new life. Do like-wise.” Clarissa Pinkola Estes.
After 3 long weary months of facing and adjusting to the permanently changed post 2020 landscape, get ready for a welcome inrush of fresh air as the Sun and Venus together enter fiery, cardinal Aries at the Vernal Equinox and initiate a new Astrological Year.
When this zodiac cycle began in March 2020, the world was a different place. Since then, every one of us has been tempered by encountering the reality of Impermanence face to face, in what has felt like a global dark night of the soul. These physical and psychic wounds, this shock to our 21st century complacency and the hard -earned resilience that has been won because of them are forever stitched into the fabric of our journey. But don’t parade around in your Scar Coat……..don’t identify with your suffering – include it. It is a badge of your initiation, individuation and re-commitment to life.
Drink the healing Medicine at Sunday’s Libra Full Moon, as the Sun conjuncts both Venus and Chiron and a Grand Air Trine forms between Saturn, Mars and the Moon. Beyond the clichéd “wounded healer” label, Centaur Chiron in Aries supports a shamanic process of recovery by healing the soul instead of the psychology, by nudging you to find your own balance between what once was and what could be, and the grace and discernment to know when to either hold on or let go.
The Chandra Symbol for Libra Full Moon 8 Libra:
A cook fixing vegetable soup from many ingredients.
“You find the subtle edge between the universal self and your own evolving centre. As you keep extending to the far horizon, the synthesis or blend grows richer and finer all the while. It is only by blending what has previously been polarised that you can begin to make your way. To be here for the changes and the mix is everything. To define and limit is nothing. You simply have no taste whatsoever for prepared, pre-digested worlds. It has to be dazzlingly inventive and spontaneously revelatory to have any currency in the realm where we are all seeking to bust loose and we take what we find, throw it together, and discover that everything is part of the same thing. And this realisation fans a pathway beyond the known altogether.” Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
Aries Weekly Forecast: March 21-28, 2021
Welcome to both the astrological and your personal New Year as you feel the sap rise, your spirits lift and feel at home again in your own skin. The week starts at the Vernal Equinox, as the Sun crosses the World Axis into Aries and ends at the Full Moon on Sunday March 28th in your opposite sign of Aries. When Venus merges with the Sun on March 26th, get ready for a welcome stroke of luck or divine timing. If you have a fence to mend or a favour to ask, do it next Friday. Give yourself a boost by wearing bright clothes or changing your hairstyle and using your best for every day. At the Full Moon, take the first step in healing old relationship wounds and strengthening the ties that bind.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: March 21-28, 2021
On March 20th, the season changes, the Equinox brings an influx of fiery cardinal energy and, unlike all the other signs, you need a rest. Every year at this time, the Sun enters the deepest, most private part of your chart and your psyche. The Light is shining within, not without. Don’t try to override this part of your personal cycle, it will lead to stress or even burnout further down the line when you will have to play a bigger role than you’re used to. Until April 21st, make a retreat whenever you can, cut yourself some slack and then some more and let the ongoing conversation between your day and night time selves guide you. Expect more vivid dreams and see if you can decipher what your Higher Self is showing you.
Merging everyday rituals with the spiritual.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: March 21-28, 2021
If you’ve been hibernating-either literally or emotionally-the energy shift from the March 20th Equinox to the March 28th Libra Full Moon will be a call to wake up and smell the coffee. Reconnect with good friends and also your social groups and networks and you’ll discover that everyone else has also felt lonely or lost. What you thought was personal turns out to be a shared sense of collective exile from our usual connections. Sunday’s beautiful Libra Full Moon lights up your angle of self-expression, creativity and enjoyment, so invest in something that gives you pleasure and makes you glad to be alive.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: March 21-28, 2021
The week begins with the arrival of the Spring Equinox in the Northern hemisphere and ends with a beautiful healing Full Moon in Libra. As one of the four cardinal signs, you will feel this energy influx more than most, especially on March 26th when the Sun and Venus have a rare love match at the pinnacle of your chart. Be prepared to become more visible in your career or service, to have others seek you out and for your opinions to count more than usual. Then on Sunday, your attention is puled homewards. You may be missing someone close, perhaps a parent, or be feeling nostalgic for happier days gone by. Do something for yourself that nurtures body and soul -you deserve it.
Loving what is.
Leo Weekly Forecast: March 21-28, 2021
As a Fire sign, you will feel the shift in energy at March 20th’s Aries equinox more than most-you will be back in your element at last. As the Sun and Venus meet in your 9th House, it’s time to expand beyond the familiar four walls of your mind. Your usual way of seeing the world, your beliefs, opinions, knowledge are ripe for an update. It’s time to shake up your mental circuitry. Learn something interesting that pushes you out of your comfort zone, study, teach, stretch your boundaries by connecting with people outside your usual frame of reference. The healing Full Moon on Sunday 28th is the perfect time to mend fences with a sibling or neighbour.
Opening up to a bigger world.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: March 21-28, 2021
The week begins with a burst of fresh fiery energy at the Aries Equinox and ends on a beautiful Libra Full Moon, so make the very most of this lucky, supportive energy. The Sun and Venus are together in your 8th House of commitment, intimacy and shared resources suggesting that a close partnership could move to a deeper level. This could be personal or professional, with someone willing to invest in you and your work. If so, believe in yourself enough to ask for what you’re worth. If you’ve been underearning, increase your prices or make a solid case for a raise. Face down old fears about unworthiness or staying small and safe under the radar.
People will accept you at your own estimation.
Libra Weekly Forecast: March 21-28, 2021
For you as a Venus ruled Libran, the entire last ten days of March look golden. First the Sun enters your opposite sign at the Equinox on March 20th, then merges with Venus on the 26th, lighting up relationships of every kind with goodwill. Mend fences, repair bridges and strengthen friendships. Finally, on Sunday 28th, a glorious Full Moon in your own sign suggests an opportunity for real intimacy and for making a lasting commitment to someone close. Full Moons heighten emotion so there could be both tears and laughter. Whatever happens, let your heart rule your head.
The mind analyses, the heart knows.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: March 21-28, 2021
Starting at the Aries Equinox on March 20th, work and your daily routines will take up much more of your time and attention. It seems as if there’s a lot on your plate. Your priority this week is to start re-balancing aspects of your life that have become stuck, skewed or bent out of shape. That might involve self-sabotaging habits, health, self-care, diet, exercise or the bigger issue of work/life balance. It’s all about making your own wellbeing a consistent and reliable foundation. On Sunday March 28th, the Libra Full Mon illuminates the deepest, most private part of your chart, revealing which old dreams and outgrown roles have faded whilst you were looking the other way.
Look for what is opening up when so much is closing down.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: March 21-28, 2021
As the Sun returns to fellow Fire sign Aries on Saturday 20th, your spirits rise and you feel back in your element. When Venus merges with the Sun on Friday 26th, it’s time to have some fun, to remind yourself that life is for living and to make a resolution to do more of what gives you pleasure instead of postponing it for high days and holidays. Increasing your happiness quotient, Mercury and Neptune help you turn your home life into a true sanctuary. From life’s slings and arrows. By the weekend and the Libra Full Moon, you’ll be thinking about creative ways to include your close friends in all the magic.
Think with your heart.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: March 21-28, 2021
The week begins on March 20th with an inrush of fresh air at the Aries Equinox and ends at the Libra Full Moon. Both these events activate two of the four angles of your chart, the lowest and highest points. This suggests that issues to do with your home and your career will play out. Since Venus merges with the Sun on the 26th, invest in beautifying where you live, whether by redecorating or buying house plants or cooking a delicious meal. This will strengthen your feeling of belonging which in turn creates a solid foundation for your work which is under the spotlight on March 28th.It’s an excellent time to bring a project to completion and then to negotiate a new one.
Changing your priorities.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: March 21-28, 2021
Since late December, Jupiter has been travelling across your sign, expanding your curiosity and nudging you to do something with some of your most original ideas. This week, as the Sun and Venus enter Aries at the Equinox, your imagination gets a boost and the channels of communication open up again. Take a risk and share some of your ideas with people you respect and trust. Their feedback will give you a much more realistic perspective on the value of what you have to offer. By Sunday 28th the Full Moon opens up possibilities for collaboration that you’d never dreamed of.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: March 21-28, 2021
As your birthday month draws to a close, on March 20th the Sun enters Aries at the Equinox and the energy shift will be noticeable. This part of your chart is all about your self-worth combined with the outside world’s recognition of your value. This raises issues around money, specifically earned income. The welcome news is that the meeting of the Sun and Venus in Aries on March 26th is very well starred for making a case for a pay rise or negotiating a much better contract. Sunday ‘s Full Moon in your angle of shared assets may bring up some tricky financial issues with partners. Aim for a win/win scenario and listen more than you talk.
No more hustling for your worthiness.
