02:01 – News this week: Pisces Season began with Biden's surprise visit to Ukraine! Celeste discusses how this relates to the Pisces New Moon from last week. Also, movie star Raquel Welch died, coinciding with Venus conjunct Neptune. Another related story was Nikki Haley announcing her run for President and Nicola Sturgeon stepping down as First Minister of Scotland.
04:25 – This week's theme is: Bullseye! It can be one of the most productive weeks of the year!
04:35 – The three big things: First, we have a First Quarter Moon (FQM) at 8 Gemini on Monday. This FQM relates to the New Moon from May 30, 2022; it will also connect to the Full Moon on November 27, 2023. This FQM is conjunct fixed star Aldebaran (the right and bright eye of the bull) on the USA's Uranus. It is a hot degree, where Mars stationed direct on January 12. At the time, all the airlines grounded, so take measures to prepare for travel problems, as needed. Also, take care around fire. Interestingly, Venus joins Vesta at 8 Aries in a sextile with the Moon – think, "Crazy eights." Saturn and Pluto are also at 29 degrees, in a semi-sextile, which can speak to being in the right place at the right time. Pay attention! Aldebaran can bring success, but you must act with integrity.
08:44 – Second, Venus (love, beauty, harmony) conjuncts Jupiter (abundance, luck, serendipity) at 12 Aries – the benefics meet! Benefics give to life, rather than take away. Do you have planets at 10-15 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn? Something positive could happen this week, or perhaps you'll make great connections. Do watch out for overindulging.
11:07 – Third, Mercury enters Pisces (March 2 – March 18) on Thursday. Mercury's last aspect will be conjunct Saturn in Aquarius, which may bring a hard news cycle, but is excellent for concentration! Then, when Mercury enters Pisces, it can struggle to communicate. Lean into expressing yourself through creativity.
13:25 – On Sunday, the theme is COMPROMISE. Avoid the pitfall of senseless arguing with those you love. Potential topics are chores and kids. The Moon enters Gemini at 7:47 am PT.
14:50 – On Monday, the word of the day is CHOICES. Consider your options and make a decision. First Quarter Moon at 8 Gemini at 5:25 am PT.
16:12 – Tuesday's focus is DOUBLECHECK. Review your strategy and adjust as needed. The Moon enters Cancer at 6:39 pm PT.
16:57 – On Wednesday, the word is INDULGENCE. Treat yourself to something nice but don't break the bank.
17:58 – On Thursday, the theme is DELIBERATE. Great day for concentrated thinking. Mercury enters Pisces at 2:51 pm PT.
18:48 – On Friday, the emphasis is HEALING. Practice self-care. The Gibbous Moon occurs at 27 Cancer at 2:19 am. The Moon enters Leo at 7:15 am.
20:20 – On Saturday, the word is CAUTIOUS. Look before you leap.
