The Writer’s Astrological Almanac

March 13 th- 25th times are Pacific Daylight Time
Sun Mar 13 the Moon enters the sign Gemini at 2:03 pm. Make the most of the time from now until next Tuesday afternoon to write, read, communicate, and create ways of expressing what matters to you. Work fast, too!
Tue Mar 15 the Moon leaves Gemini and enters Cancer at 5:57 pm. Get a lot done? Enjoy a good supper, regardless.
Wed Mar 16 the Moon is in Cancer all day. If you work at home, you can get a lot done (though you may need a lot of snacks to see you through).The Moon trines Venus at 2:44 am (sweet dreams!), and trines Neptune at 12:09 pm. This can keep the dreams and ideas coming. Let something plot itself. Fifty-seven minutes later, at 1:06 pm, Jupiter makes a trine with Pluto. This is the sky’s way of reminding us that we are all in this together and we can fix darn near anything, no matter how big or messy. This is a ‘have no fear’ kind of aspect, it’s been applying slowly over the last few months, and will continue to have effect for months to come. Keep up the good work! (continue reading…)

March 1st – 7th times are Pacific Standard Time, PST until March 13 when PDT begins.)
March starts on a Tuesday, the day of the week for the planet Mars. Think of it as a high-energy month rather than a blustery contentious month. We have a lot of work that we care about, and nothing can slow us down once we get started.
Tue Mar 01 the Moon conjoins Saturn in Sagittarius. Be disciplined in a big way, and serious in a gentle way.
Wed Mar 02 the Moon is in Sagittarius all day. Is something ready to be submitted and sent out into the world? Do it. Network and query, too. The Moon makes a sextile with Mercury at 6:55 pm and goes void of course. This aspect has been applying all day long and can result in plenty of ideas and works in progress.
Fri Mar 04 the Moon conjoins Pluto in Capricorn. Get lost in your work, if need be, and feel good about it all. That night, Mercury squares Mars. Don’t rush to judgment about anything. Let your work settle into itself before thinking about changes or editing. Destroy nothing now. You can always burn it later.
Sat Mar 05 the Moon is in Capricorn when Mercury changes signs and enters Pisces. Thoughts get bigger, more vague and emotional. Write (or read) romances today, or at least things with happy endings. Spiritual projects are probably okay, too. At 8:05 am the Moon sextiles Mars and then goes void of course until entering Aquarius seventeen minutes later at 8:22 am. This may create a stormy beginning but your opinions should rapidly calm down and let you be more objective. That evening at 6:29 pm Mars changes signs, leaving Scorpio and entering Sagittarius. It’s fine to do a few more things for someone else, especially if it furthers everyone’s artistic endeavors. And let’s not overlook the Sun making a square with Saturn at 10:04 pm. If criticism has been harsh today or authority figures have been more visible than usual, now you know why. You can work with this. (continue reading…)
