Astrological Trends March 2018:
• Uranus (the planet of freedom, individuality, revolutions, and other avenues creating change) will continue to square Pluto (the planet of transformation, rebirth, regeneration, death, destruction, and all issues that we don’t like looking at) off and on until April 2018. Since we have been under these influences we have seen problems in the Petroleum industry (oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico, China, and Michigan) and with the Nuclear Power industry (the disaster in Japan due to an earthquake and associated tsunami) both of which are related to Pluto. Because of these disasters this has initiated a revolutionizing process (Uranus). Also we have seen initiation of social revolutions (Uranus) against the graft and corruption (Pluto) in many governments around the world. Many of these are nonviolent, such as the “Occupy Wall Street” in the US, or extremely violent, like we are have seen and are seeing like Turkey, Syria, Libya, Egypt, Mali, Yemen, and Iraq or with the terrorist attacks in France, Canada, and the United States. We will continue to see violent revolutions around the world until these influences are over with. In the US we are seeing protests (sometimes violent) around allegations of police brutality against African-Americans, gay rights especially around marriage, and transgender equality. Also, there are potentially volatile situations between Russia and the Ukraine, and between China and other nations around the South China Sea. With the Uranus influence who knows what can happen here, but it can become explosive and turn into an armed conflict. Because of these things we are also seeing fluctuations with the oil and gas industry which is having a potentially negative effect on the world economy. All the recent terrorist attacks (bombings, shootings, etc.) are a result of this influence.
• The North Node continues to Quincunx the Pluto until March 1 and Neptune until May 2018. Under this influence we will be facing our issues, illusion and misperceptions around moving forward in our lives.
• Chiron (the planetoid which deals with self-care) continues to sextile Pluto off and on until March 11 and trine Jupiter until April 2018. There are a lot of economic and political difficulties we are dealing with; however, we will have the strength, confidence (Pluto), and well-being (Jupiter) we need to take care of these issues.
• Saturn continues to trine Uranus until November 2018. Under this influence there is an opportunity to build inspired and creative new structures for the future.
• Jupiter (the planet relating to expansion, optimism, religion, philosophy, and the law) continues to trine Pluto until October 2018, trine Chiron until April 2018, and Quincunx Uranus until May 2018. Under these influences there is opportunity to get strength and confidence around religious institutions, and our legal systems, and to feel good about taking take of ourselves; however, there is potential for chaos around these areas of our lives.
• On Sunday March12 at 1054AM Eastern Time a full moon will occur at 22º Virgo. This is usually a time of release especially if this aspects something in your chart. With the moon being in Virgo there would be the potential to express your emotions in a practical and critical way. This critical expression could be internalized by being critical of themselves, or being externalized by being critical of everyone and everything around them. This is also a time when the normally sexually chaste appearance of Virgo could show its wild side.
