This Week in the Stars

Quick Daily Guide
March 29 to April 5, 2023

Looking for my monthly blog? It’s here: http://Thoughts on the Month Ahead –

Planetary and lunar movements are calculated from midnight to midnight, EDT.

Note on the Void-of-Course Moon: After the moon makes its last aspect from one sign, it’s void-of-course (v/c) until it enters the next sign. During this time, you may find yourself on a winding road. More things are hung up or postponed, and often finally resolve themselves when the moon is in its new sign.

Wednesday, March 29

Moon 8° to 20° Cancer

Everything flows along pretty smoothly, with the Mars/Saturn trine in water signs. You’re practical and organized, but also sympathetic and understanding. Work goes well, with an emphasis on taking responsibility.   


Thursday, March 30

Moon 20° Cancer to 2° Leo – moon v/c from 9:45 am to 6:31 pm EDT

You continue to get quite a few things done, with the Mars/Saturn trine. Your approach is realistic, practical and reliable, and you are able to handle all sorts of situations without over-reacting. At the same time, there could be some sudden changes in relationships, as Venus conjuncts Uranus. Somebody may show up where you don’t expect them, or not show up where you do. 

Friday, March 31  

Moon 2° to 14° Leo

The week ends on a productive note, with the Mars/Saturn trine still strong. You know just what to do, and you do it with no waste of energy. At the same time, the Venus/Uranus conjunction is still strong, so there could be some sudden flips in relationships, as well as in leisure activities. You may find yourself someplace you don’t expect to be, with people you didn’t expect to be with.  

Saturday, April 1

Moon 14° to 26° Leo

You’re disciplined and efficient, with the Mars/Saturn trine continuing strong. Relationships are also enlivened by a sextile between Venus and Pallas.

Sunday, April 2

Moon 26° Leo to 8° Virgo – moon is v/c between 2:02 am and 6:57 am EDT

There’s lots of Aries energy these days, so things happen quickly and spontaneously. But don’t ignore practical considerations, including anything related to health and sustenance. Before Mercury leaves Aries, it makes an inconjunct to Ceres in Virgo, so be careful not to burn the toast.   

Monday, April 3

Moon 8° to 20° Virgo

Some tricky power issues could come up. Mercury moves into Taurus and immediately makes a fixed square to Pluto, so there could be confrontations between newcomers and the old guard. Some old problems could be dredged up, but even more important are the things that nobody talks about.   

Tuesday, April 4

Moon 20° Virgo to 3° Libra – moon is v/c between 9:49 am and 5:51 pm EDT

It takes a little work, but you can find your balance. Both Mars and Saturn take mediator positions between the nodes, so you are motivated to work through longstanding power issues and deal with the real world.

Wednesday, April 5

Moon 3° to 15° Libra

You could be haunted by quite a few old ghosts today, as there are some important karmic influences. The sun conjuncts Chiron in Aries, and Mercury in Taurus approaches the north lunar node. With Mercury also sextiling Saturn, this is a good time to access your inner Wise One, the one who has learned so much through the ages. Be patient as you tune in to the still small voice within.
