  1. March 5th @ 10:23 pm (PT) March 6th @ 1:23am (ET). Mars enters the sign of Aquarius ♒. Mars is the planet of assertion, action and aggression. Aquarius, can be humanitarian, unique, rebellious, intellectual, forward think, inventive. Aquarius has the ability to distance himself/herself emotionally, standing back to view the bigger picture. With the high energy out put of Mars, and the forward thinking of Aquarius, we may see a rising up of the collective. Some of us may be losing patience with the status quo and may feel emboldened to come forward with new ideas. A balance will be required of both the Aquarian desire to see and utilize new ideas, and the Martian desire for quick action to remedy “fix” what is no longer working. It would be wonderful to think that this combination of energies, may have the power to put an end to the current worldly chaos, and bring about new solutions that hold peace and freedom at the core of all decisions. In our personal lives, we may want to gallop ahead, leaving old ideas behind, impatient to make workable changes, so we may enjoy and happy future. There could be a push/pull energy at work, and not all of our ideas may be possible, decisions will have to be made. Because of Mars’ impatience he can be insensitive to the needs of others, and because of Aquarius’ ability to pull back emotionally, we should all take care how we approach sensitive topics, our words may be just as hurtful as our actions. While this astro combination will affect everyone to a degree, those who have personal Mars and/or Aquarius chart influences, will feel this energy combination the most. 
  2. March 5th @10:30 pm(PT) March 6th @1:30 am(ET)Venus enters into the sign of ♒ Aquarius. Venus is the planet of money and beauty. Intellectual connections are going to be at the top of the agenda. We want to know what is really going, and we aren’t “afraid” to ask questions. It’s not about being difficult, it is a true and honest desire to understand the people and situations around us. Our relationships may take on more of a logical outlook, emotionally we may feel the need to “park” our emotions for a while, in an attempt to grasp the logic and common sense of the situations and relationships that make up our world, in both the personal and global sense.  While this astro combination will affect everyone to a degree, those who have personal Venus and/or Aquarius chart influences, will feel this energy combination the most.

The Moon and Astrology



In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂 

The Moon Void-off-Course: 

There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void off Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void off Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-off-Course moon… 

Good for Void-Off-Course Moon:

These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.

  • Cancer
  • Taurus
  • Sagittarius
  • Pisces…

Opportunity Periods  

There are other periods throughout the month that are known as opportunity periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods.
