March 23: Feelings vacillate today. The morning hours are dominated by the Cancer Moon’s opposition with Pluto. Obsessive types are quick to engage others.

The two form a late night square, stirring impatience and possibly angry outbursts. Judgement and timing can be faulty. Slow down if you’re driving. By noon the Moon is void of course and emotions simmer down for several hours. Tempers may reignite this evening, after the Moon enters fiery Leo.

Easier, more productive energies are in place during the quieter late afternoon and evening hours.
Moon in Leo.
March 25: After a bright and hopeful early morning the Leo Moon goes void of course until nearly midnight. If you have important papers to review and sign, mail to send, or a big decision to make, do it first thing. The customary void of course rules apply to the rest of the day. Go with the flow. If you can, live your life as though it’s an unfolding stream of consciousness story. Activities that draw from the subconscious self can be successful and rewarding. Communicate with your inner child. Self-help work and counseling can be fruitful. Get creative. With the Sun and Venus conjunct, this could be a banner day for artists and designers.

Take care of basic chores and responsibilities. Clean, organize, recycle and repurpose. At sunset don’t forget to look east for the full moonrise. Cook a healthy meal. Serving others is deeply satisfying. Two heads are better than one this evening so have a confab with a trusted pal.
Moon in Virgo v/c 7:48PM-12:00AM.
March 28: The Libra Moon is full at 2:48PM Eastern Daylight Time. Across the heavens in Aries are the conjunct Sun and Venus.

Steer clear of those jealous types who deflate every feeling or idea they cannot comprehend. For artists, visionaries and movie fans, tonight’s vibe is perfection.
Moon in Libra v/c 8:08PM-12:00AM, Mercury conjunct Neptune.
March 30: Overnight the Moon enters Scorpio. Some folks naturally play their cards close to the vest when the Moon visits this intensely curious but secretive sign. A late morning Venus sextile Saturn aspect suggests that talking about a private matter with a trusted, more experienced advisor could be a huge relief. The aspect also favors making longterm commitments. However, mixed trends are the story today. The Moon is soon at odds with unpredictable Uranus. By early afternoon, what had seemed settled this morning could suddenly again be in flux. The evening’s lunar square with Saturn can bring up doubts and insecurities. Before backing out of a deal, keep in mind that there will be opportunities to rework agreements over the next few days.
