The Planets this Week: March 19 - 25, 2017

What do the planets have in store for us this week?

One of the headlines of the year is on Monday 20th we will be celebrating the Vernal Equinox. This marks the official start of spring, in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere it is the start of autumn.

The Spring Equinox occurs around March 20 each year, when the sun enters the Cardinal sign of Aries and the spring season officially begins in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun rises due east and sets due west, no matter where on the planet you are. Days and nights are nearly equal.

Holidays during this time, such as Easter and Beltane, usually relate to fertility and the hope for successful crops in the field. Spring has been associated with burgeoning sexuality. In song, spring suggests the maiden or lad as they step into adulthood. Life offers many opportunities that have yet to be explored. Everything is fresh, new and exciting. Hormones act up and libidinal urges start to simmer within.

In the Southern Hemisphere, during the Autumn Equinox, the Sun rises due east and sets due west, no matter where on the planet you are. Days and nights are just about equal. Autumn marks the lengthening nights and darkening skies. Trees change colors as the leaves fall to the ground. The energy in the air has shifted from the extroverted, free-spirited nature of summer fun to a quieter, more reflexive foreshadowing of winter.

The equinox coincides with the start of the astrological new year and the Sun moving into Aries, the first sign of the zodiac.

The Planets this Week: March 12 - 18, 2017

What do the planets have in store for us this week? Mars moved into Taurus on the 9th where it will be until April 21st. Under this influence, slow and steady may be your motto. But like the tortoise who out-raced the hare, the amount of work you have the potential to accomplish could amaze everybody. You may find getting up in the morning, you may not be the fastest starter. At this time, you will respond well to routine and once you get going will find yourself methodically plowing through a task, project, or to-do list.

On the 12th we have a Full Moon in Virgo. During this time, you’ll probably feel a sense of achievement as you notice the progress of your efforts to tidy up at home and at work. In matters of health, you feel the effects of your exercise routine — or lack of one. Give yourself more time to reach the optimal goal that you originally set out to accomplish. Don’t try to push your body beyond its limits. Plug away slowly and you’ll soon find that your endurance and stamina increases noticeably.

On the 13th, communication planet Mercury moves into Aries where it will stay until March 31st. During this time your mind could be functioning at top speed and in short bursts of activity. You might not have a lot of patience to focus on one idea for too long, instead burning through one thought quickly and moving on to the next. Instead of weighing all the pros and cons of a situation, you may tend to make snap judgments based more on instinct than logic.

Astrology: The Basics

This show is about the basics of astrology. The signs and their classifications. The twelve signs of the zodiac are divided into groups. There’s the elements such as fire, earth, air and water. The second group is are the modalities or qualities and they are cardinal, fixed and mutable.

For starters, your birth chart is created for the precise moment that you were born. At that time, each planet (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto), the Sun and the Moon were in measurable positions in the sky that is unique to your individual birth chart. Your birth chart reveals important insights about your personality, career choices, romantic potential, and much more.

The position of each planet in the twelve signs of the Zodiac reveals to astrologers the tone of each planet’s specific energy, and the effect of that placement in your chart. The ways in which planets interact with each other also reveal important influences. With a little help from the Zodiac, you can gain insight into your individual astrological characteristics and influences. For example, if you have a lot of Sagittarius in your birth chart, you’ll know that you are an outspoken trailblazer that needs a lot of freedom. However, if you have a lot of Cancer in your birth chart, you may be intuitive and shy, and can also be talkative and family oriented.

There are twelve Houses that correlate with the twelve Signs. Each Sign and House is ruled by a planet, the Sun, or the Moon. For instance, Libra is the second sign which is ruled by Venus, and Venus also rules the second House. The Signs represent the individual qualities and characteristics of a person, while Houses represent the qualities and characteristics of the environment in which a planet resides, transits or aspects.

The Planets this Week: February 26 - March 4, 2017

We have an intense and busy week! The astrological headline of the week is the Solar Eclipse in Pisces on Sunday.

This influence helps you to better understand the alliances between people rather than the differences. Consider your personal boundaries and how that has kept you from truly connecting with others on a more meaningful level. How open are you? How in touch are you with your feelings? Can you offer more compassion to make this world a harmonious place to live in?

You may begin to realize that there are universal truths among humans no matter what race, status, gender, age, or education level. Consider how you can make changes on a more personal level, offering not only your knowledge, but also your heart to those in most need.

After all, society can’t truly change if the people within it still suffer emotionally. Look at the relationships you have with others. Check your feelings and see where you are blocked. Get in touch with your innermost self, minus the barriers. Evolve your soul by emphasizing the similarities you have with other people. Worry less about the differences. You may be surprised to find that a kind gesture or a hug can have strong reverberations.

Also this week, Mercury moves into Pisces so our intuitive powers are strong, while our rational mind might be on hiatus. Many of us will be in touch with the big picture and higher vision, but the details of daily life may escape us. Miscommunications and misunderstandings are possible, as we lose focus and it becomes more difficult to tell the difference between dreams and reality.

Finally this week, love planet Venus turns retrograde on Saturday through April 15th. During this period, your love life could be up, down and all over the place!

An Overview of Astrology

Astrology has a fascinating history. The earliest recorded interpretations of astrology were found on from 1645-1625 BC. The earliest known horoscope dates back to 410 BC.

Anyone can gain greater personal understanding with astrology since it affects our lives just as the moon influences the tides. Astrology provides you tools that can help you make the best and most informed decisions. It is like a map for your soul that provides you with insights into the future, and reveals the tendencies, quirks, and truth about human nature, relationships, career choices and the world at large. Astrology may be used as a guide for daily living, as well as for forecasting and predictions.

Astrology is a complex system that dates back to the third Millennium B.C. It is based on celestial observations and correlating events. Astrology helped lay the foundation for the development of astronomy. It has influenced belief systems and even entire cultures. The many components of astrology, such as signs, planets and aspects, are what make it a complex system. It can be rather confusing until you begin to understand the basics. The many components are considered when forming accurate readings of astrological transitions and how they relate to each individual. The more you learn, the better you’ll be able to apply astrology’s wisdom to your own life.

For starters, your birth chart is created for the precise moment that you were born. At that time, each planet (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto), the Sun and the Moon were in measurable positions in the sky that is unique to your individual birth chart.

Find out what’s in store with the planets this week. We have a fairly quiet week, astrologically speaking. The headline of the week is the Sun moving into Pisces on Saturday where it will stay until March 20th.

During the Sun’s transit in Pisces, and depending on how it affects your birth chart, you may find yourself longing to escape from your everyday reality. You’re more sensitive now, and might feel overwhelmed by the people and responsibilities of daily life. You may also feel a longing to connect more with your inner world and spiritual life, rather than paying so much attention to the material world.

Look for positive ways to transcend the ordinary, like creative expression, meditation, yoga and other spiritual practices. This could be a great time to go on a retreat, or otherwise withdraw from socializing and busyness. If you don’t have a positive outlet for escape, you might be tempted to fall into the more negative expression of Pisces and be prone to addictions, illusions or avoidance.

Your imagination is strong now, and can be put to use in making music, painting, dancing, or writing poetry or fiction. You could also let yourself simply daydream about your future, and come up with a new vision for your ideal life. Dreams may be more active than usual, and paying attention to messages from your dreams can reveal profound guidance from your subconscious.

You could be a real softie now, easily brought to tears by a sad movie or even a sentimental TV commercial. Honor your increased sensitivity by purifying your body, your environment and your relationships. Take extra alone time to rest and recover when it all feels like too much.

Find out what’s in store with the planets this week. The big news of the week is the Lunar Eclipse in Leo. During the Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, creative endeavors really begin to take shape. Many of us will have a receptive audience. Overall, people’s moods are uplifted with Leo’s jovial spirit. Feeling particularly passionate about experiencing life to the fullest, many of us will have a full appreciation for the splendors of the natural world.

On Sunday, Jupiter, planet of luck and good fortune turns retrograde. Jupiter has been travelling through Libra since September 2016, and its tour of this gentle sign will last over a year, until October 2017. Commonly referred to as the Planet of Luck, Jupiter is also called the Planet of Philosophy due to its intellectually explorative nature. Its yearlong transit through diplomatic Libra expands our natural curiosity about the world along with our interest in connecting with people of different cultures and philosophies.

On Tuesday, communication planet Mercury moves into Aquarius where it will stay until February 25th. While Mercury is in Aquarius, and depending on how this transit affects your natal chart, your brain could be buzzing with inventive ideas. You may find yourself thinking outside the box, with sudden flashes of inspiration that open your mind to unusual and unexpected possibilities. You might even have trouble sleeping at night as the mental gears tirelessly turn.

Also, this week, the brilliant Sun is forming positive aspects to both Uranus and Jupiter. People are more open-minded than usual, curious and interested in change and reform. Progress is highlighted and plans are made. Tolerance and generosity are at a peak now, so take advantage by donating time or money to a charitable organization of your choice.

Find out how the planets will be affecting you this week with your host and astrologer Kelli Fox. The astro headline of the week is Venus moving into Aries on Friday where it will be until April 2nd. It turns retrograde on March 4th and then finally direct April 15th.

While Venus is in Aries, and depending on how this influence affects your birth chart, your love life could be quite exciting! You might find yourself being bolder than usual, taking risks and acting on your ardent impulses. Romance can be steamy and you’re open to experimentation — just watch out for getting carried away by your passions and be sure to take care of yourself.

If you’re single, this is an ideal transit for initiating new relationships, and you’ve got the confidence to go after what you want. Of course, what you want could change from moment to moment. The hunt might be what thrills you most right now, while the everyday work of relationship could feel stifling. If you’re in a partnership, break up familiar routines with an infusion of novelty — surprise your sweetie by taking him or her on an unexpected outing, wearing a sexy new outfit, or trying an innovative approach to lovemaking.

You might find yourself wanting to assert your independence now, and getting in touch with your own needs and desires, separate from your partner. Clinginess is a definite turn-off. Giving yourself space to explore your passions is a way to recharge the vitality in your relationship.

Be aware of the tendency toward impulse spending under this transit — you want what you want when you want it! A little patience and prudence could be in order.

Find out how the planets will be affecting you this week with your host and astrologer Kelli Fox. It’s a fairly quiet week, astrologically speaking. The Sun moves into Aquarius where it will stay until February 18th.

Under the influence of the Sun in Aquarius, and depending on how it interacts with the planets in your chart, you may find yourself wanting to be different from everyone else. While you might be drawn to social events and group activities, you’re not interested in fitting in, but in distinguishing yourself as an individual. You might be feeling rebellious, and longing to break free from old molds and others’ expectations.

Your attention turns toward the future — what’s your long-term vision? What are your hopes and wishes? Let yourself dream big, and be sure to attend events where you might meet people who can help you reach your goals. Networking is favorable for these four weeks, and the synchronicity factor — chance meetings with the right person at the right time — is heightened.

Getting involved in a group or organization that reflects your passions is another great way to make connections with helpful people. You could feel inspired to get involved in a volunteer project or humanitarian cause. Team projects, especially those that are working toward a higher ideal, are especially satisfying.

Aquarius is the sign of technology and innovation, and this is a time when you can find creative solutions to old problems. Your mind is super-strong now, but you might have a tendency to get overly attached to your ideas and opinions. If you can stay mentally flexible and open to other points of view, you can make better progress than by thinking you have all the answers.

Find out how the planets will be affecting you this week with your host and astrologer Kelli Fox.

We have a very intense Full Moon in Cancer on Thursday. This is not an ordinarily intense Full Moon but a supercharged one! With Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto making challenging connections we had better hang onto our hats!

Usually during the Cancer Full Moon, you can develop a warmer, more loving spirit in your home and with people you’re close to. You may feel a sense of contentment with the quality of people you have in your life. With the t-square to Jupiter confidence, energy, bounce — these qualities are evident everywhere this week, probably to excess. In fact, the big problem is one of inflation. We just don’t know when enough is enough. Be very careful not to overeat, overreach or be too self-indulgent. The possibility is high that lots of folks will take on too many projects or too much work, in a brief moment of I-can-do-anything mentality.

The Full Moon also forms a tsquare to Uranus so there will be a strong, unpredictable energy. People will feel like doing what they want, and forget the consequences. Willful behavior is certain to be on display somewhere nearby. Defiance and indiscretion, too. Disruptions to the daily routine are likely and no one will have the patience to deal with them.

With the conjunction and opposition to Pluto this Full Moon promises complex power issues as long-hidden secrets and other information bubble to the surface. Our focus and passions are much more laser-like than usual. We go for the burn, but if we’re too dogmatic, forceful or stubborn, we can easily burn out. It’s so tempting to look around with a critical eye and see what everyone else is doing wrong, but remember, a person can only change themselves and no one else.
