virgo full moonA Virgo Full Moon with a dainty Sabian Symbol highlights the week, while Saturn and Mars wield their influence upon the Sun and Mercury. We also have a potent Thor’s Hammer aspect pattern, as well as two “challenge for growth” T-squares!

3/10 (Mon)

No major astrology events.

3/11 (Tue)

Acting on your intuitive flashes and inspired revelations may run into resistance from more traditional mindsets as Saturn squares Aquarian Mercury. Saturn represents authority. The more you embody yours, the freer you will be to move forward in your own special way!

Saturn takes on a more supportive role as it quintiles Aquarian Venus. Stay open to practical inspiration as you forge your own unique approach to relationships, creativity and finances.

3/12 (Wed)

Thor’s Hammer

Thor’s Hammer isn’t just a magical weapon wielded by Chris Hemsworth. It’s also an astrological aspect pattern consisting of a 90° square two 135° sesquisquares. The one starting today features the multi-year Uranus-Pluto square focusing on Pallas Athena. It peaks on 3/16 and ends on 3/21.

Your feminine assertiveness, strategic planning and practical creativity can all take quantum leaps for the next 10 days. Release what’s not working in these areas, and let your intuitive flashes guide you as you fine-tune these skills.

3/13 (Thu)

The marriage of Heaven and Earth is made easier with Saturn trine the Piscean Sun. This would be a great time to use my Core Invocation, or any other technique that makes you conscious of being pure divine awareness functioning in the physical world. This is also a great time to tangibly manifest your creative inspirations!

Juno joins the Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square

The energies of revolutionary transformation receive a new focus as Juno conjoins Uranus and joins the five-month Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square. Juno’s involvement will peak on 3/26 and ends on 4/8.

Juno carries a variety of meanings, including peace, fertility and committed relationships. This asteroid goddess also represents sexuality, beauty, the renewal of love and even betrayal.

Staying attentive to these themes in your life will show you what you need to release. You will also see what paradigm shifts are needed to enhance your well-being with new expansion, joy and hope.

The Mercury-Saturn-Pallas Athena T-square that started on 3/9 peaks today and ends on 3/18.

3/14 (Fri)

Inspired thinking and communication is smoothly supported as Mars trines Aquarian Mercury.

3/15 (Sat)

Spiritual opening and creative genius receive a powerful sprinkling of pixie dust as Pluto quintiles the Piscean Sun.

3/16 (Sun)

Virgo Full Moon

March’s Full Moon shines forth at 1:08 PM (26°01′ Virgo). The spotlight is shining on health, service, routines, systems and the small details that make everything work. This is a great time to make adjustments in these areas.


This lunation’s most significant aspect is a Saturn sextile, providing a solid foundation for this Virgo work. A tight Mars semi-sextile adds energy and drive.

Sabian Symbol

This Full Moon’s Sabian Symbol is, “Aristocratic elderly ladies drinking afternoon tea in a wealthy home.” This genteel image can be interpreted as the well-deserved enjoyment of abundance.

The most helpful definition of “aristocratic” in this context is “the best or most able.” “Elderly” implies having lived long enough to have gained the wisdom of experience and reaped its rewards. “Ladies,” rather than being gender-specific, represents feminine receptivity which has opened to receive prosperity.

One can imagine these Virgoan ladies as having tended carefully to their health, prospered through service to others, and successfully managed the details of their lives. They therefore have the time to enjoy the many small pleasures of life — as can we, if we follow their example.

A significant energy boost is available for relationships and creativity, but you may need to make some adjustments to benefit from its full power. Spiritual union practices can also be juiced up as Libran Mars quincunxes the Piscean Sun.

The Thor’s Hammer aspect pattern featuring Pallas Athena, Uranus and Pluto that started on 3/12 peaks today and ends on 3/21.

Void-of-Course Moons

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.

  • 3/11, 3:51 pm – 10:10 pm (Leo)
  • 3/14, 3:25 am – 10:19 am (Virgo)
  • 3/16, 1:09 pm – 8:47 pm (Libra)
