2016-03 W12: Forecasts for Week 12 of 2016

The Vernal Equinox is March 19th / 20th depending on your location (with Venus conjunct Neptune on the same day), and the next lunation (a Aries / Libra Full Moon) follows on March 23rd (Jupiter perfects a square to Saturn a few hours earlier on the same day).  You already feel Jupiter / Saturn (especially the financial markets do), and this is the second of three with the first being last fall.

Focused Yods are also present this month, and we can “get things done” during these periods (absent other considerations such as v/c moons):

Week 12 (W12)

Sunday March 13th

Moon is v/c from 4:47 AM CDT until 4:04 PM CDT.  Since Daylight Savings Time went into effect overnight, the accompanying void seems somehow appropriate.  Slow down, be careful, avoid major purchases or commitments, and find some time to center yourself as Spring approaches.  Later tonight, after Moon enters Gemini, Moon squares Venus (Pisces) and opposes Mars (Sagittarius) to form a T-Square.  Chances are good that this is much ado about nothing.

Outer Planets: Jupiter (law, legal, higher education, long distance travel, and people related to these topics) perfects a long term opposition to Ceres (prosperity in general and food in particular) and issues related to these “come to a head” either over the weekend (a few days before), today, or in the next few days.  Two outer planet quincunxes perfect, also make this a bit of an unpleasant day.  (Jupiter quincunx Pallas, Chiron quincunx Astraea)

Monday March 14th

International Math Day, Pi Day, or Einstein’s Birthday: take your pick.  (“All of the above” is the right answer here.)  Informally, the Moon forms a very loose grand cross with an opposition to Saturn and squares to Neptune and Jupiter.  You will either accomplish much or nothing at all.  (No in-betweens on this one.)

Mercury squares Saturn, forcing you to pay attention to detail, but the perfection of Venus square Mars distracts you with issues of love and sex (or, if those don’t apply, family, power, & money).  Outer planets are relatively quiet, but Uranus triseptile Juno suggests that a kind move that is helpful to a family member who deserved better treatment in the past is a very good idea today.  But today is very important because of the Diamond Pattern present today along with other patterns.  In fact, the patterns tell us that this may be one of the most important days (or several days) this year, maybe in several years.

A Diamond Pattern (rare) is present today and starts March 14 2016 4:13:20 pm (CDT +5:00) and continues until March 14 2016 8:35:22 pm (CDT +5:00).

A Mystic Rectangle is present late in the day and tomorrow and makes this, possibly, one of the best two days for art and creativity:

Mystic Rectangle Enters Mar 14 2016 9:05:45 pm (CDT +5:00)
Mystic Rectangle Leaves Mar 15 2016 8:08:02 am (CDT +5:00)

A series of Thor’s Hammer Patterns are also present, so watch your temper and focus all that energy into “getting things done” (especially if they are artistic in nature).

Again, the patterns tell us that March 14th of 2016 may be one of the most important days (or several days) this year, maybe in several years.  The entire week is important.  Jupiter Trine Pluto with a Grand Quintile is an important turning point for some people, especially artists and other creatives.  We are setting the stage for the upcoming full moon / lunar eclipse.

Tuesday March 15th (Ides of March)

[Written in retrospective.]  Today a number of important elections occur.  Given the aspects and patterns of Monday and Wednesday, we believe you will see significant changes / events occur.  Mercury (Pisces) opposes Jupiter (Virgo), and Mercury also is sextile Pluto (Capricorn).  The three, together, form a triangular pattern that is yet another indicator of powerful changes.

Venus also perfects a semisquare to Uranus, adding both a sense of urgency and a sense of weirdness to the day.  Capture those unexpected insights if you cannot put them into practice today so that you can followup on them on another day if necessary.  But, if you can, take advantage of the “luck” of perfection of Jupiter Trine Pluto tomorrow to accomplish something amazing.

Wednesday March 16th

Jupiter Trine Pluto perfects today, the second in a series of three.  A Grand Quintile is also present earlier in the day, and that is a rare pattern that can produce powerful insights (genius level) as well as bode well for the development of creative works.  Take advantage of the rare opportunity that today presents as best you can.  Days like today are rare indeed.

Thursday March 17th

We note that the Moon is very busy today, perfecting seven aspects (not including higher order aspects such as quintiles and septiles). The afternoon and evening has a series of lunar trines on this traditional Irish holiday (the date of St. Patrick’s death), and we expect the evening to go well for most people (except anyone who consumes too much in the way of mood altering substances and contributes to an accident or other harmful situation).

Mercury conjunct Chiron today tells us that we have communications and transportation related to health, education or both. Much of today is about processing the earlier three days of the week.

Friday March 18th

A relatively benevolent Moon v/c begins after midnight (Moon Trine Sun) and ends near 4 AM CDT with the entry of the Moon into Leo. The moon is more quiet today than yesterday, with quincunx aspects to Venus (afternoon) and Neptune (evening). You may encounter a few glitches, but for most people they will be forgetten in a day or two and certainly by next week.

Outer planet aspects are far more busy (yesterday was relatively quiet with a Ceres / Uranus aspect bring a surprise regarding our prosperity (“The Visa is maxed out? Again?)).

Mars sesquiquadrate Uranus brings us some sense of urgency (possibly anger) to “get things done.”  Chiron opposite North Node (“Rahu” to some) means it is conjunct the South Node (“Ketu”) and, therefore, we have a temptation to “take the easy way out” or “cut corners” regarding some issue involving healthcare, education, or both.  (Don’t do it!)

Pallas does BiQuintile Hygeia, and we CAN have a brilliant insight into how to solve problems today.  Just focus your efforts, do not get derailed, do not cut corners, and do the work necessary.

Saturday March 19th

In most of the United States, except the Eastern Time Zone (EDT), the Vernal Equinox greets us late tonight.  (EU / UK experience this a half past 5 or half past 6 or later depending upon time zone.)

Sun biseptiles Saturn, and we should consider resolving some old karma or helping someone less fortunate than ourselves or both.  Sun quintiles Pluto, and we may encounter a very ingenious idea that either (a) helps us with the biseptiles (helping someone else) or (b) gives us a gift in the form of a smart idea that comes from providing said help.  In any case, they go together and they set the stage for the days to come at least until the Summer Solstice (late June) or possibly as long as the Vernal Equinox of next year (late March).  Venus septile Pluto confirms this emphasis on helping others.

Venus novile Uranus provides us with a gift of some sort this evening, an insight or useful skill, likely resulting from helping others (or maybe an insight because we failed to help; those can be hard lessons sometimes).
