Weekly Astrology Forecast — Mar 19, 2017 – Mar 25, 2017

Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Mar 19, 2017 – Mar 25, 2017:

This week we see Venus beginning its slow descent from the evening sky into the darkness, Pluto conjuncting its own South Node, and the Sun moving into Aries, marking the onset of the Vernal Equinox (and first day of Spring). This is true for those in the Northern Hemisphere. For those in Southern latitudes it’s exactly the opposite, ie the Autumnal Equinox and the first day of Fall.

As we turn our clocks forward and tie up the last few days of winter here in the Northern latitudes, we begin our week on Sunday with Venus and Mars in mutual reception, a mutable t-square involving Saturn, Moon and Mercury, and a Full Moon in Virgo.

We start this week with Mercury and Venus in semi-sextile and the Moon moving into first quarter phase (at 15° Gemini 04′) on Sunday.  The first quarter Moon is closely aspecting both Mercury and Venus, with a square to the former and a sextile to the latter.

March 2017 Tarot Scopes by Melodie

the Lovers -- Mary El Tarot

ARIES: The Lovers

Mars and Venus are moving through your sign this month, bringing the traditional “love” planets together, forcing you to deal with relationship conflicts and considerations. The Lovers card is all about relationships and choices that need to be made regarding relationships. These are often complicated by temptations that emerge, forcing you to have to choose between dual principles or desires.

Are you seeing in your own life where an attraction has turned into a fixation or obsession? Or where perhaps you’re relaxing your own set of standards to allow for indiscretions you’ve already made?

The Lovers card says that the stakes are high and that there may be a price to pay for giving into your passions without considering the long term repercussions.

A third party (leading to infidelity on someone’s part) is one strong possibility. But so is a relationship that’s likely to create tensions with family members or society. A same-sex union. A May-December romance. An inter-racial affair. A relationship that is sure to be frowned upon by your religion. A love affair with your co-worker or boss. The possibilities are endless. It can also refer to the union of polarities, as seen in the Mary-el version of the card.

The figures here are about as opposite as they can get: male and female, young and old, black and white.This is said to represent the alchemical marriage. The female figure is strong and aloof, the male passive and vulnerable, She is naked, save for a nautilus shell headdress, while he is draped in purity and light. Yet they flow together in an intimate embrace. Even so, there’s an apparent emotional disconnect in this rendition. The female figure stares off into the distance while the males gazes downward.

The angel watching over them in the background is barely noticeable. She doesn’t assist and she doesn’t interfere. This is something to keep in mind this month as you find yourself struggling with temptation. You do have free will, the choice is ultimately yours, and whatever decision you make will have consequences that you’ll be expected to answer for.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Feb 12, 2017 – Feb 18, 2017:

Coming on the heels of Saturday’s Full Moon lunar eclipse, we start this week with a another lunar aspect: the Moon in Virgo — still full — and conjuncting the North Node. As Virgo is the sign associated with humility, productivity, self-improvement and service to others this Moon is great for shifting our collective focus toward these areas.
