First Quarter Moon
“Vixen” detail of photograph by Roger Hayden
This week begins the take-action quarter of the current SolLunar Eclipse cycle. You are being prepared and life is presenting you with insights and experiences about what the upcoming Full Moon Lunar Eclipse of March 23 will call forth in your life. Be like this Fox and follow your unique guiding Light.
Thank you, Roger, for allowing me to share this magical moment you shared and captured with Fox.
Here’s a list of the First Quarter Moon characteristics compliments of my friend/sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza ~ www.lunarplanner.com
“The First Quarter Moon of each lunar cycle draws an external stimulus to initiate action as we move from the inspirational quarter of the lunar cycle into the action quarter. Now is the time to drop all hesitation and take the steps to move forth on what you were inspired about…. it is time to now participate in trust and knowing. Trust in the process. Demonstrate this trust in physical action and you will be supported. This time is stressful or traumatic only if action is ignored. Simply, this phase is a time to work.”
Note: I write my posts according to the Lunar cycles, posting on the New, First Quarter, Full and Third Quarter Moons. If you work with and within the natural flow of time and supportive cosmic energy, your life can flow with more ease and grace. I base my interpretations and predictions on the true sidereal astronomical alignments.

Tue March 15
First Quarter Moon ~ Sun in Pisces square Moon in Gemini: It’s a good day to examine the relationship between your head and your heart as the information-gathering, thinking Moon in Gemini squares off with the feeling, intuitive Sun in Pisces. Discover how you make important decisions when what you feel and what you think seem to be at odds with each other. Read about and research spiritual or artistic studies that have grabbed your attention. For you poets and writers, overcome inertia and write on!
Mercury/Ceres conjunction in Aquarius: You can receive important communications from important women in your life. Also, pay attention to the never-ending oracles of nature guiding you (if you ask and pay keen attention). Become a direct channel for Earth wisdom today. Mercury may also function as the energetic trigger for Earth shifts, especially during the current Eclipse cycle. Earthquakes and tsunamis are possible in the coming two weeks.
Wed March 16
Jupiter retrograde in Leo trine Pluto in Sagittarius: This expansive and supportive long-range aspect can bring confidence to you in regards to your abilities to endure specific challenges you might be facing. Or it might bring a sense of renewed faith in your own possibilities. On the political front, power struggles heat up with increased bravado, bluster and rhetoric. And this won’t stop anytime soon…
Moon in Gemini trine Venus/Neptune in Aquarius: This aspect can bring new information or friendships into your life that support your current creative/spiritual aspirations. The Moon in Gemini is infinitely curious in outer-world affairs and the Venus/Neptune alignment attunes you to your own internal stream of wisdom. Pick up that journal, face the blank page/canvas and trust that art will happen if you just show up.
Thu March 17
Mercury/Chiron/South Lunar Node conjunction in Aquarius: I’ve been writing about how the current conjunction of Chiron ~ the wounded healer and rainbow bridge ~ and the South Lunar Node ~ past history and relationships ~ is bringing expedited purging and releases into our lives. As Mercury triggers this today, important information, communications, connections can help bring clarity about what needs to be done NOW, along with further purging and release. Clean those closets and cupboards, literally and metaphorically.
Fri March 18
Moon in Cancer square Vesta in Aries trine Mars in Scorpio: Your soulful, private and deeply sensitive Moon in Cancer might get a prod or sharp-edged push today from forces outside of you. In addition, Vesta is currently in sidereal Aries, supporting us to be bold and courageous in our life choices. The helpful trine to Mars in Scorpio also brings increased determination to align our financial lives with our true passions.
Sat March 19
Spring Equinox ~ 10:30 pm MDT: The tilting of our Earth brings greater life-giving Light to our Northern Hemisphere. This is always a day to give thanks, make offerings of gratitude to our miraculous creation. Make note of what new seeds you are planting and nurturing in your life. If you have a sacred altar/s in your home and work spaces, freshen them up clear intentions, appropriate colors, flowers and the light of new candles.
Moon in Cancer opposite Pallas Athene in Capricorn: Mirroring the gift of Spring Equinox, take note of desires arising from your deep, secretive soul. Then set conscious intentions or make organized plans to nurture the emergence of those desires.
Sun March 20
Venus/Neptune conjunction in Aquarius: This exquisitely magical moment that happens once a year brings together all we love and hold dear ~ the meaning of Venus ~ with all we want to nurture within the diversity of our humanity. This alignment is a huge portal of Love engulfing our Earth. May you receive this gift today. Do with it what you will to create more peace, art, health, prosperity for yourself and extend those benefits to all of creation. Your prayers will absolutely shift our world.
Moon in Leo square Mars in Scorpio: Be warned, this aspect can fire up egos and defensive behaviors. Examine how you are spending your money, time, energy to support your creative goals. You may want to make some adjustments today.
Mon March 21
Moon/Jupiter/North Lunar Node conjunction in Leo: This highly inspired, resourceful alignment builds upon the cosmic inspiration of yesterday’s Venus/Neptune conjunction. Time to take further steps toward the dream that is dreaming you (what the North Lunar Node symbolizes). Whenever Moon and Jupiter align, you can expect heightened emotions, dramatic releases, increased optimism, and world mania.
Tue March 22
Jupiter square Saturn: This historic square will be exact tomorrow, the same day of the Lunar Eclipse and the Mercury/Sun conjunction. I promise to post early next week due to this magnificent portal of shift that will occur on March 23. Best advise today is to rest up and listen to your own internal guidance system so you are prepared to use these extraordinary energies in positive, life-enhancing ways.
