Just as a reminder, I forecast for Groundhog Day that we were looking towards more winter- I don’t fault the media for going with the critters who indicated Spring was coming, but clearly, astrology is pretty darn good for meteorology. Here in the NE- we know Spring begins tomorrow, but the crocus are fighting their way through snowmounds at present. This too shall pass. 

Forecast 3/20 The Sun enters Aries at 7:02 a.m. ET, kicking off the Spring Equinox.

Because of the emphasis of  Aries planets, we can expect a stressful Spring- it may or may not be challenging for you personally, depending on your sign. Certainly those with cardinal placements: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn may feel it most acutely.

This signals a particularly volatile period, since Mars and Uranus are also in Aries. Proceed with caution in situations where passion can supersede common sense. Although you don’t want to sacrifice expressing yourself in situations that require it, there is no point in engaging with angry people.

Keep alert to strangers lashing out; road rage is high whether in a car or shopping cart. There is ample opportunity to hone your fire and carve out a responsible course, but only if you don’t take the bait of pyrotechnic distractions.

springequinox2013Looking at the chart set for Washington DC, the gun control debate seems to be center-stage, with both sides demanding respect. Yet the overwhelming voice of those who identify as the victim seems to be the ones who gain power. The question is- who feels more like the victim in this debate?

This tip of the scales is not just for gun control but in any situation where one group or person feels disadvantaged by another’s bluster.

Ideally, as the voice of the underdog because more consistent, measured and strong, the balance of power can be instated.

The“void-of’course” moon VOC* occurs at 2:02 p.m. ET after which the edgy energy may die down- a temporary lull. The void continues through the NEXT DAY, creating a good time for clearing and centering.

Avoid starting anything new but address whatever may stand in your way to move forward in the coming weeks.

*Moon VOC/Void-of- Course… in Cancer, be by the water, time with family or sifting through memorabilia. May be a lovely time to enjoy a picnic or meal with no time constraints.
