The Planets This Week: March 19, 2018

What do the planets have in store for us this week? We will be celebrating the Astrological New Year on March 20th. In the Northern Hemisphere we will be moving into the Spring time while in the Southern Hemisphere the season is Autumn.

The Spring Equinox occurs around March 21 each year, when the sun enters the Cardinal sign of Aries and the spring season officially begins in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun rises due east and sets due west, no matter where on the planet you are. Days and nights are nearly equal.

This coincides with the Sun moving into Aries so this show is dedicated to all you Rams out there! Aries is symbolized by the Ram, which is highly appropriate — this sign is headstrong and impulsive, and won’t often back down from a challenge or confrontation. While confrontations can be exciting, they can also lead to a frustrating locking of horns with an imagined foe; and that, in a nutshell, explains a significant part of the Aries experience.

Also this week, the dreaded Mercury retrograde is upon us! This will be a period which requires a great deal of conscious effort on your part with regards to your communication style and content with others. There is a strong tendency to blurt things out or to be blunt in ways that are less than useful. Your perception of what other people say may be skewed by your overly eager and anxious desire for action.

Many of us will be highly impatient to get things moving and that translates to impulsive words that may cause quite a stir in others. One of the hardest but most important feats to accomplish during this period is self-restraint, especially when feeling most passionate about a subject. We will create equally passionate responses.

Tune in on Monday 6pm PT/9pm ET to find out more…
