March 20- April 20
Aries is a cardinal sign in the element of Fire. Aries is the sign of the equinox. The change of season, when day and night are the same length. In the northern hemisphere this marks the beginning of spring. This sign is very ruled by Mars. It is the sign of beginnings, enthusiasm, and action.

NEPTUNE IN PISCES
PLUTO IN CAPRICORN
Here we go again. Mercury is going retrograde again. This time in Pisces. The retrograde period will be the usual 3+ weeks, but this is a bit different because the placement of Mercury makes sure we get a really long time with Mercury visiting the foggy and emotional realm of Pisces and putting us all under a bit of a spell.
Mercury will begin the first retrograde of the year on Mardi Gras--the day before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the Lent, the Christian time of fasting and increased attention to the care of the soul. This retrograde will happen in the sign of Pisces and will be a perfect time to consider what you believe, how and why you connect with the Divine, what you have done and may be continuing to do that brings out the victim or addict in you.
You might look at your own chart and notice what area of life is under the influence of Pisces. This will be the special area of review. Mercury retrograde in Pisces lets your review be guided by spirit and maybe fuzzy thinking. You can see things in a different light. Intuition is strong, but hold off on making big committments or decisions, until this retrograde is over. Hold off till April, but be prepared to move.
Use this retrograde for soul work. Use this retrograde for spiritual house keeping. Make yourself ready for spiritual renewal. It is a wonderful opportunity.
**Mercury is in its stationary position March 28. Hold off rushing into action until April 5. Review your notes from the retrograde and decide where to take action now.
Jupiter in Sagittarius
November 8, 2018
Jupiter is happy and powerful in the sign of Sagittarius. Here the expansive planet of optimism, abundance and sometimes excess, is at home and holding court. Every 12 years Jupiter visits his home, so look back to 12 years to see just how you have been affected in the past. Under the influence of Jupiter in Sagittarius we may be tempted to risk more than usual and be overly optimistic, but we will also be inclined to benefit from those risks. Laughter is an excellent tool and skillful humor and generosity can take you far. This configuration gives a boost to us all to enjoy happy holidays.
Saturn in Capricorn
December 19, 2017-
December 17, 2020
It takes Saturn about 30 years to travel through all the signs and it will be in Capricorn til 2020 with a bit of back and forth that year, finally landing in Aquarius December 17, 2020. Saturn has been in Sagittarius, a weak placement for Saturn, but in Capricorn it is at its strongest and most influential. Saturn is the teacher and the disciplinarian. It is under the influence of Saturn that bills come due and karma exacts its price.
Capricorn is the sign that rules governments. How powerful do we want government to be? What do we expect of government and the governed. Both Saturn and Capricorn are cautious, practical, and conservative (in the actual meaning of the word). The late 1980s might suggest the kinds of things that come with this transit, though every time Saturn goes through this sign brings in other players. This time, Uranus in Aries might stir things up. Stay tuned.
"No matter how unpleasant a Saturn transit seems at the time, it represents what you really want in life and is helping you get it. Most people are out of touch with what they truly want. If you thoroughly understand your needs and wants, you will find that Saturn simply brings about their manifestation".
from Planets in Transit by Robert Hand
Neptune in Pisces
The Master of the Mystical begins forward motion in Pisces. This trip through Pisces will continue through 2025. We may as well get comfortable with examining spirituality, illusion, addiction, and mystery. Neptune will be working with Saturn this year to assist in bringing true spiritual values into form and structure. Look forward to cultural embrace of magic and the enduring value of love and compassion.
Look forward to more on this topic.
URANUS DIRECT IN TAURUS
URANUS IN TAURUS
MAY 15-NOVEMBER 6, 2018
MARCH 6, 2019-JULY 7, 2025
NOVEMBER 8, 2025-APRIL 26, 2026
Uranus in Taurus is a very mixed bag. Uranus by nature is chaotic, forward thinking, revolutionary, and explosive. Taurus nature is conservative, fixed, fond of the past and seeks wealth and stability. I am going to spend the next few weeks looking at the news to get an idea of how this strange configuration is going to manifest.
The last time Uranus was in Taurus began in 1935. This was a time of war, a rise in dictators, extreme changes in fortune for many. We will surely see changes in our monetary system, the markets, real estate, and likely food production. This is an excellent time to modernize infrastructure and use innovation to do so. But we are dealing with Uranus here. Uranus is the planet of the unexpected and the unplanned.
Stay tuned for more on this big change.
PS As you see there is some back and forth as Uranus makes its yearly retrograde, it will move briefly back into Aries to take care of any unfinished business. Next spring, Uranus will take up residence in Taurus until 2025.
URANUS IN ARIES
Uranus is the planet that brings the urge for freedom, innovation, and often rebellion. Uranus is in the sign of Aries - a cardinal sign in the element of fire. This energy is burning with a desire for change at any price. As Uranus becomes stationary and begins forward motion watch rebellion, change, innovation and the explosive nature of Uranus express in more outward ways. Pluto will try to hang on to power and other planetary players will join in from time to time to support the old guard or the forces of change. Hang on for a continued wild ride.
PLUTO IN CAPRICORN
Pluto is the planet of transformation and as one of the outer planets, its effects are wide spread. When Pluto travels through a sign the particular area of life that sign rules is transformed on a fundamental level. Its message can be "change or die". Since Capricorn rules structure, all structures are likely to be overhauled. Since Capricorn rules government, governments are likely to be transformed.
On a personal level, look at your natal chart to get a good idea of the areas of your life that are likely to be shaken to their foundation.
Chiron in Aries
April 17, 2018 - April 2027
Chiron is a slow mover and we are just learning about this newer member of the heavenly bodies we track here on earth in astrology. In the myth, Chiron is a divided being- half human and half horse, half god and half man. In our natal charts, Chiron represents those areas in which our wounding can lead to our healing and the healing of others.
Chiron has been in Pisces steadily since 2011 and is now moving into Aries. This will likely bring about more consciousness around issues of healing and sacrifice. This could well mark a time when we may become aware of cultural wounding and begin to seek remedies rather than supressing awareness of pain. We may become more accutely aware of suffering and seek an active rather than a passive response to injury, illness, or disorder.
The myth of Chiron is one definitely worth reading and exploring as he trained warriors and healers, used his affliction for the benefit of humanity, and sacrificed himself in the service of justice and bringing light to human beings.
