March 3-9 2014 Astrology Forecast: Asteroid Goddess Integration

asteroid goddessesIt’s time to integrate different aspects of femininity as three asteroid goddesses and Venus form a complex Double Yod Key aspect pattern. Plumbing the depths of the psyche is encouraged as the Sun conjuncts Chiron and sextiles Pluto. We also have Jupiter turning direct, unconventional relating and creativity as Venus enters Aquarius, and more!

3/3 (Mon)

Personal transformation is strongly empowered with a Sun-Pluto sextile. With the Sun in Pisces, divine union practices and inspired creativity are also smoothly energized.

The Sun is also conjunct Chiron today, juicing up mentoring and healing activities. These planets’ placements in Pisces shows that spiritual versions of these activities will receive special support.

Both Pluto and Chiron love to plumb the depths of the psyche. If challenging emotional or psychological material comes up for processing, you may find my healing invocation helpful.

 Double Yod Key

It’s not often that a complex aspect pattern includes only feminine planets. But that’s what’s happening today, as a Double Yod Key consisting of Venus, Pallas Athena, Vesta and Juno begins. This four-day aspect pattern peaks on 3/5 and ends on 3/6.

(The next two paragraphs get technical; you can skip them if you prefer.) A Double Yod Key is two interlocked Yods. What’s a Yod? Nicknamed “the finger of God,” it’s a three-planet configuration featuring two quincunxes (150°) and a sextile (30°).

A Yod strongly calls for adjustments so that the energies of the two planets on the back end can connect with the planet at the tip. Blending two Yods into a Double Yod Key creates an aspect pattern bordered by a square (90°), a quincunx and two sextiles.

This Double Yod Key calls for adjustment and integration among different feminine energies. Venus values beauty, balance and harmony. Pallas Athena radiates assertiveness, strategic cunning and practical creativity. Vesta embodies sacred sexuality and devotion to a higher cause. Juno represents queenliness, marriage and commitment, and the renewal of love.

The integration of these very different ways of using feminine energy may not be simple or easy. But, while this Double Yod Key is active through 3/6, it can be a good time to observe these different energies within yourself and make whatever adjustments feel appropriate.

3/4 (Tue)

Fresh inspiration regarding finances, creativity and relationships is available with Venus quintile Uranus. Heed your intuitive flashes! With Venus in Capricorn, these themes may be especially relevant in practical and business settings.

3/5 (Wed)

Venus transits Aquarius today through 4/5. This is a great time to connect with unconventional people and experiment with unconventional relationship styles. Be bold and adventurous in your creative expression, and listen to your intuitive flashes regarding financial matters.

The Venus-Pallas Athena-Vesta-Juno Double Yod Key that began on 3/3 peaks today and ends on 3/6.

3/6 (Thu)

Jupiter, retrograde since 11/7, turns direct today. If you’ve been mulling over decisions relating to religion, the meaning of life or new quests, Jupiter’s forward motion now supports taking action!

3/7 (Fri)

No major astrology events today.

3/8 (Sat)

No major astrology events today.

3/9 (Sun)

Strategic planning for practical applications is supported by a T-square beginning today. Consisting of Mercury, Pallas Athena and Saturn, this aspect pattern peaks on 3/13 and ends on 3/18. With Mercury in Aquarius, be sure to ask for intuitive flashes to inspire and guide your mental work.

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.

  • 3/4, 12:32 pm – 2:14 pm (Taurus)
  • 3/6, 8:55 am – 9:39 pm (Gemini)
  • 3/9, 2:53 am – 9:35 am (Cancer)

Whatever your Sun Sign, Benjamin’s forecasts can help you make the best use of the current astrological energies.

All dates and times are in the U.S. eastern time zone. Events are most powerful on the dates listed, but their influence will be active for at least several days before and after.

Everyone is affected by these global transits. However, you will be most powerfully impacted when moving planets activate sensitive points in your natal chart.

    Hi, i tried to conceive on march 9th during a t square and a void of course moon( I didn’t know this at the time) I got pregnant and miscarried almost immediately. I’m hoping to try agsin in July/ August and wondered if you could tell me how things look with the planets during that time- I’m a Capricorn sun/ Capricorn rising.
