TRANSCRIPT Ep. 226 | Aries Equinox: Irrational Exuberance! (March 18, 2024)

« Pay attention and skim present notes

Whats up, invisible pal, April right here, and the date immediately is March 18th, 2024. Welcome to episode 226 of the Massive Sky Astrology Podcast. This week, the Aries equinox begins the astrological new 12 months, and the Solar’s facet of Pluto brings a trial by fireplace. Venus makes a conjunction with Saturn – are you able to get severe? And what will we make of Warrior Mars coming into loving Pisces? Plus, I reply a listener query about beginning issues when Mercury is retrograde.

Solar enters Aries/Equinox (March 19, 2024, 8:06 pm PDT)

On March nineteenth at 8:06 pm Pacific Time, the Solar enters Aries, and the second that the Solar enters Aries is the second of the equinox. Within the Northern Hemisphere, that is the start of spring, the vernal equinox. And, within the Southern Hemisphere, it’s the start of autumn, the autumnal equinox.

Aries is considered one of 4 cardinal indicators. Together with Most cancers, Libra, and Capricorn, these are the initiating indicators, they’re the indicators that start a brand new season of the 12 months. And we’ll typically use phrases like “Aries Season,” simply to speak concerning the signal that the Solar is presently shifting via. That is really the start of a season, spring within the Northern Hemisphere, and fall down beneath.

As a lot as we wish to make resolutions firstly of every January and plot our course for the calendar 12 months forward, astrologically talking, we affiliate the Aries time of 12 months with that New Yr power. Planting new issues, making irrationally exuberant begins. That is the start of the energetic New Yr. It’s time to go plow the fields and scatter the seeds.

That is the season for initiation, for beginning new issues. The sap is starting to rise. We really feel energetic and excited. The chart for the Solar’s ingress or entry into Aries symbolizes essential themes for the approaching 12 months, and particularly, for the subsequent 3 months.

Mundane astrologers, that means astrologers who research world tendencies, particularly in politics and finance, pay shut consideration to the chart for the Solar coming into the signal of Aries. And what they’ll usually do is solid the chart for the capital metropolis of a specific nation, and by doing that, they’ll get perception on what is going to occur in that nation over the subsequent 12 months.

However you may also solid it, after all, for the town the place you reside, and see what may be occurring in your hometown within the coming 12 months, and particularly within the subsequent three months.

Solar sextile Pluto (March 21, 2024, 1:03 pm PDT)

On March twenty first at 1:03 PM Pacific Time, the Solar makes a sextile facet of Pluto, and this is likely one of the extra essential facets in that Aries ingress chart. It’s a strong facet for initiating new initiatives, for entrepreneurship, and what we embark upon on the equinox has the potential to convey us energy and affect over the subsequent few months.

However first, we would need to undergo a sort of trial by fireplace earlier than we obtain our success. Pluto is on the Sabian image 2 Aquarius, An surprising thunderstorm and energy and affect can come our approach from out of the blue; however we’ve got to at all times ensure that when Pluto is concerned, that we’re headed for the best potential of something that we undertake.

Venus conjunct Saturn (March 21, 2024, 4:09 pm PDT)

Venus makes a conjunction with Saturn on March twenty first at 4:09 pm Pacific Time, at 12º26’ minutes, Pisces. That is a facet that introduces the concept of seriousness and limits in relationship. This can be a mixture, particularly in Pisces, that explores the concept of how can we present kindness with out being taken benefit of.

Should you cross by a homeless individual on the road, what’s your impulse? If you wish to assist them, how do you see serving to them? This can be a Venus/Saturn query. We frequently preserve our distance from these in want as a result of we don’t wish to be burdened. We may be involved that what begins out as a sort gesture to somebody in our lives would possibly find yourself with a dedication to present extra of our assets and privateness than we wish to give.

Saturn on this state of affairs says, we’ve got to determine good boundaries with the intention to have good relationships, and if we do, then we might be assured within the stage of assist and dedication that we may give. In shut private relationships with others, this facet is a reminder that intimacy is not only about having emotions for somebody. It’s about what you do and what you present inside that relationship.

That is a facet that may convey relationships to a brand new stage of maturity and dedication. It strikes fairly rapidly, however often, except Venus is retrograde in simply the suitable approach, we solely have this facet as soon as each 9 months or so. So, it’s pretty essential, and in case you’re in a relationship, this may be a time when it takes on a brand new stage of dedication.

When Venus comes along with Saturn, it’s time to get severe with the relationships that we’re forming with different folks.

Now, Venus can be related with the monetary issues, and when it’s along with Saturn, we start to get severe about our cash, and our cash as one thing that represents how we worth ourselves and the way others worth us as effectively.

I’ve talked to numerous enterprise house owners in current weeks who’ve actually been speaking about how gradual enterprise has been and the way tough and slightly bit scary it’s. And I believe that’s simply, it’s a little bit of an indication of the instances most likely, but additionally it’s coming as much as tax time right here in america and numerous instances folks simply don’t spend some huge cash in February and March.

Saturn’s boundaries are essential in our monetary lives too, and that features boundaries that we put round our spending. If cash is tight, we will both earn more money or we will restrict what we spend. Use what we’ve got extra properly. Both possibility requires self-discipline.

I believe the lesson, perhaps, of this Venus with Saturn is about at all times realizing the truth of your state of affairs to the extent that you would be able to and never being afraid to face it head-on. And in addition, doing the sensible issues that we might usually affiliate with, say, Virgo or Capricorn, which is to have a price range and keep on with the price range.

Mars enters Pisces (March 22, 2024, 4:47 pm PDT)

On March twenty second, Mars enters Pisces at 4:47 pm Pacific Time, and it’ll be on this signal via April thirtieth. Mars has numerous meanings, and considered one of them is the best way during which we go after what we wish and in addition, how we defend ourselves. How will we reconcile the planet of struggle, Mars, within the signal of unconditional love and peace?

First, check out how a fish defends itself in opposition to a predator. They escape. Fish are very quick swimmers. They’re very agile. Many species of fish will swim in a faculty as a result of this affords security in numbers. A few of them can mix in with their environment. So, when Mars is in Pisces, we are going to defend ourselves by escaping if we will, and if we will’t, perhaps by mixing in and hanging out with others.

Mars symbolizes, additionally, what makes us offended. When it’s in Pisces, we’ll are likely to get offended if we really feel we’re being exploited, and in addition once we see weaker or deprived folks mistreated. Mars in Pisces by transit, versus in any person’s beginning chart, would possibly make us desire to only sort of again off, swim away, let issues work themselves out, reasonably than get right into a battle with somebody.

Mars is a logo additionally of what we get obsessed with. This can be a mixture that loves artwork, music, movie, and musicals. And don’t overlook that Mars is a planet of relationship. And when it’s in Pisces, it’s really very romantic. However when it decides {that a} relationship isn’t understanding, if the opposite individual is taking them as a right, or in another approach makes them really feel unsafe, the intuition, once more, could be to make a fast getaway, reasonably than to get right into a confrontation with the opposite individual.

Whereas Mars is in an indication, we resolve the place to focus our power. And whereas it’s in Pisces, we may take into consideration making and having fun with artwork, displaying our love. These are actually good areas to give attention to when Mars is in Pisces.

Venus sextile Jupiter (March 24, 2024, 9:37 am PDT)

Venus makes a sextile to Jupiter on March twenty fourth at 9:37 am Pacific Time, at 15º48’ Pisces and Taurus. That is an particularly good facet, anytime we’ve got Venus and Jupiter collectively. Venus in Pisces particularly is loving, sort, impressed. Its Sabian image at this facet is the stream of inspiration, however its reference to highly effective and steady Jupiter in Taurus, I believe creates useful boundaries that may stabilize funds and relationships.

It’s the hope, after the Venus-Saturn facet, which might be very severe, not essentially really feel very joyful. The Venus with Jupiter does really feel fairly joyful. Jupiter is on the image, Previous man trying vainly to disclose the mysteries. And that looks like a reasonably Jupiter in Taurus message, as a result of Jupiter in Taurus has a powerful sense of what’s proper and incorrect, however the reference to Venus and the stream of inspiration makes it probably that we are going to disregard numerous Jupiter’s good recommendation and transfer alongside flowingly in our personal approach.

This can be a good facet for taking slightly little bit of a danger, whether or not it’s with one other individual and risking sharing your emotions with them, or slightly little bit of a monetary danger, and this doesn’t imply going out and blowing all of your cash on the lottery. But it surely does say that when Venus and Jupiter join, Jupiter does have that little factor of luck. So it’s not a nasty time to alter your funding technique slightly bit – or perhaps purchase only one lottery ticket.

The Moon Report

And now for the Moon report, that is a kind of uncommon weeks and not using a main lunation, a New Moon, Full Moon, or Quarter Moon. The Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse falls subsequent Monday, March twenty fifth. This lunar eclipse falls at 5 levels 7 minutes Libra. We’ll speak extra about this subsequent week.

To start to consider this eclipse season, look again to the earlier years when eclipses fell close to this diploma. With the lunar eclipse most not too long ago, that was a lunar eclipse on March twenty third, 2016. That was at 3º17’ Libra. Then we’ve got to go all the best way again to 1997.

So, these are timeframes to consider. Simply take a couple of notes. Have a look at the place 5 levels Libra falls in your beginning chart and in addition what might need been taking place in your life, particularly that matches the profile of that home of your chart again within the spring of 2016.

I’ll be giving a category on lunar phases and eclipses on Saturday, March twenty third. So, in case you’d wish to get slightly little bit of a head begin on the eclipses, And in addition study extra concerning the Lunar Section household and all of those different issues I discuss on the podcast. Go forward and be part of me for this class. It’s on Zoom at midday Pacific time. To enroll, simply go to BigSkyAstrology.com/studying.

Void-of-Course Moon Intervals

Let’s take a look at the Void-of-Course Moon durations for this week. On March twenty ninth, the Moon in Most cancers trines the Solar at 11:52 am Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for about 41 minutes after which enters Leo at 12:33 pm. A trine facet brings a reward, and the reward that may be proven to us throughout this sort of quick Void-of-Course Moon interval is about spending time with these we love – Moon in Most cancers – sharing kindness and laughter, and focusing slightly bit extra on that than we typically do. It’s a terrific facet for socializing, whether or not it’s with household or with associates who really feel like household.

On March twenty first, the Moon in Leo opposes Mars at 11:34 pm Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for almost one hour after which enters Virgo on March twenty second at 12:42 am. An opposition facet brings consciousness and this specific opposition focuses our consideration on the methods during which we pursue our personal concepts and pursuits – Moon in Leo – versus appearing – Mars – within the curiosity of the collective – Aquarius. Now, neither of those is true or incorrect, they’re simply totally different. Study your habits for the methods during which you would possibly focus slightly an excessive amount of on one aspect of this equation, reasonably than the opposite.

And on March twenty fourth, the Moon in Virgo opposes Neptune at 8:49 am Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for about four-and-three-quarter hours and enters Libra at 1:37 pm. The notice that begins this Void-of-Course interval is how are we doing with balancing rational thought and sensible duties, Virgo, with instinct and a willingness to waft.

If we’ve got habits of leaning slightly too onerous on considered one of these reasonably than the opposite, this can be a Void-of-Course Moon interval for deciding that we’re going to begin new habits, the place we’ve got a greater stability of the sensible and the intuitive.

Listener Query: Beginning Job when Mercury is Retrograde

On this week’s listener query, listener Elizabeth asks, “Hello April, I’m beginning a brand new job on April 1st, the day Mercury goes retrograde and the beginning of eclipse season. Is that this an ominous begin to a brand new step in my profession? Ought to I be terrifiiiiied?™ Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us every week. I sit up for urgent play in your podcast each Monday morning and studying your e-mail e-newsletter often.”

April: Properly, Elizabeth, thanks a lot for that query and in addition on your very sort phrases. Here’s a little story that perhaps doesn’t show a lot precisely, a minimum of not by itself, however it would possibly make you are feeling higher.

On September third, 1984, I started a brand new job within the personnel division of an enormous water utility in Southern California. I labored there for nearly precisely seven years in 4 totally different departments. I progressed from the bottom stage junior clerk place to one of the crucial senior govt secretary jobs. I made good associates that I’m nonetheless near, to at the present time, and I earned an excellent wage.

And, you might need guessed, on the day I began that job, Mercury was retrograde.

It was additionally a occupation that’s dominated by Mercury – an administrative assistant, later an govt secretary. If a consumer got here to me immediately and requested about beginning a Mercury-ruled job when Mercury was retrograde, I may not be too sanguine about it. But it surely did work out, and it really labored out very well. I might most likely nonetheless be there immediately had I not fallen in love with astrology and determined to do that for a dwelling as an alternative.

Right here’s one thing fascinating although. My trainer used to say that in case you needed to do one thing quite a few instances, begin it when Mercury is retrograde. I can’t say I did it quite a few instances, however a couple of 12 months after I left that job, I went again and labored as a temp for a couple of months, to pay an earnings tax invoice and to save cash for my marriage ceremony.

Now, you might be beginning on the day of a Mercury station, however, in reality, relying on the place you reside, you would possibly technically be beginning when Mercury continues to be direct because it doesn’t flip retrograde till 3:14 pm Pacific time. However on the day of planet stations, it actually doesn’t matter an excessive amount of. The entire day is actually beneath that retrograde affect.

So, do you have to be terrifiiiied?™ I gotta go along with “no” right here. I imply, I began a Mercury-ruled occupation job with Mercury retrograde in Virgo, the signal of secretaries and different help personnel. And I simply went from power to power. It sort of surprises me, really, as I discuss it.

You additionally talked about eclipses, and it’s not like eclipse season is a nationwide vacation or something. However I might really use subsequent week’s lunar eclipse on March twenty fifth via the April eighth photo voltaic eclipse as defining the eclipse season, however you’ll begin your job between two eclipses. The March twenty fifth lunar and the April eighth photo voltaic eclipses.

The time in between two eclipses, which I wish to name an interregnum interval, it’s just like the interval between monarchs, is energetically intense. So take a look at what falls in your beginning chart between 10 and 19 levels of cardinal indicators, particularly Aries and Libra, as a result of the lunar eclipse is at 10 Libra, the photo voltaic eclipse is at 19 Aries, and people levels in between might be feeling the squeeze from these two eclipses. And never at all times in a nasty approach. I’m sorry to maintain speaking about myself, however I obtained married on a day between a photo voltaic eclipse that fell virtually precisely on my descendant and a lunar eclipse that opposed my seventh home Moon. And that may sound sort of scary, however we’re occurring 31 years of marriage, it’s labored out effectively.

So, my pal, you most likely are shifting into a fairly essential profession route primarily based on these eclipses. And beginning when Mercury is on the brink of flip retrograde is fairly fascinating. However to be trustworthy with you, I can’t think about that Mercury retrograde goes to do you that a lot hurt in and of itself.

Elizabeth, I hope that helps. Thanks once more a lot on your query and for listening to the podcast each Monday.

And in case you, Invisible Good friend, have a query you want to me to reply on a future episode, simply go away a message of 1 minute or much less at Speakpipe(dot)com/bigskyastrologypodcast or e-mail me at April at BigSkyAstrology.com and put “Podcast Query” within the topic line.
