May 17 Moon Goddess’ Current Phase

Today the Moon will be in a Waxing Crescent Phase. A Waxing Crescent is the first Phase after the New Moon and is a great time to see the features of the moon’s surface. During this phase the Moon can be seen in the wester sky after the sun dips below the horizon at sunset. The moon is close to the sun in the sky and mostly dark except for the right edge of the moon which becomes brighter as the days get closer to the next phase which is a First Quarter with a 50% illumination.

Visit the May 2021 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waxing Crescent Phase

The Waxing Crescent on May 17 has an illumination of 27%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On May 17 the Moon is 5.17 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, May 16, to Saturday, May 22, 2021

All Signs

We’re in the fires of Mordor! Actually, it’s Mercury Retrograde, which means you will hear from old friends, ex-partners and old flames, which is either fun or horrifying. (I once tried to hide in the aisles of a video store.) Mercury is retrograde from May 28 – June 22; but the shadow period makes it a longer time: from May 16 – July 8. Zooks! That’s today! You can use this time to wrap up old business and make insightful observations about your past. Avoid buying ground transportation, computers and cell phones. This week, the Sun moves into Gemini giving each of us a new focus for the next four weeks. Everyone will feel more curious and restless – eager for something new and interesting to happen. (Geminis don’t do boredom.) It’s time to make a cat video!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your sign will feel this particular Mercury Retrograde more than the other signs because Mercury Retrograde is taking place in the part of your chart that is Mercury’s home. Expect car problems and transportation delays. (Flat tires, failed engines – something.) Get ready for missed appointments and confused communications. Oy! However, you will easily finish studying or writing something. Even though you’re caught up in delays and goofy mistakes, you will enjoy life because it is fast-paced and exciting! Plus, you will appreciate the beauty of your daily surroundings and feel more warmly connected to others. Gosh.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your focus on money, cash flow and movable possessions will be strong in the next four weeks. (“I can’t believe I own all this stuff.”) Something will prompt you to catalogue, organize and get rid of what you don’t need. You will also be more focused on money, cash flow and earnings. Although cheques in the mail will be late and other delays might be irksome, nevertheless, a moneymaking idea that you had in the past might be worth reconsideration? Why not run it up the flagpole to see if anyone salutes? You will attract money, goods and favours to you this month. Likewise, you will buy pretty things and antiques. (It’s who you are.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Oh my, the Sun, Venus and your ruler Mercury are in your sign for the next four weeks. (Venus moves into Cancer on June 2.) This means the whole world will experience a dazzling display of Gemini energy! Obviously, this is your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. It’s also why you will feel vigourous, energetic and enthused about life; while Venus will make you smooth, charming and diplomatic. Of course, Mercury Retrograde will attract friends and ex-partners back into your world. Mostly this is a good thing because it’s nice to have history with others. Enjoy this lovely boost of energy and attention!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your personal year is coming to an end; however, your new year is not yet ready to begin. This means the next four weeks are the perfect time to reflect. Look back over your shoulder. How well are you doing at the art of living? What changes do you want for your new year ahead? What goals do you want to make? After all, goals make future decision-making easier and they keep you on track and give you focus. This window of time will be great for doing research. Meanwhile, some of you are swept up in the throes of a secret, passionate, love affair. “Heathcliff!”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The next four weeks will bring a welcome change into your life because you will be more popular and more involved with younger people as well as creative, artistic types. (Just what the doctor ordered.) You will enjoy talking to groups and friends online or in person. You’ll be excited about creating new goals for the future. It’s as if you’re waking up after hibernation. “Life! I remember what that was. Yes, it’s time to live again!” Mercury retrograde will attract old friends back into your world; plus, it will help you to accomplish old goals that you never achieved or finished. Relations with friends will be cozy; in fact, a friend could become a lover. “Masks off!”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Life will be increasingly thrilling during the next four weeks because this is the only time all year the Sun will be sitting at the very top of your chart. This means you will be thrust into the limelight! Everyone will notice you more than usual. But lo! This light is flattering. Everyone admires you especially parents, bosses and VIPs even if you don’t do anything special. (It’s smoke and mirrors.) This is why you will be asked to take on increased responsibilities, and others will come to you for your advice, especially about how to make something look better. Meanwhile, competition or increased physical activity will stir your blood! All hail the valiant Virgo!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The next four weeks will be like a breath of fresh air for you because you will do something to satisfy your urge for adventure, stimulation and a chance to learn something new! You will appreciate the beauty of art, architecture and the crafts of other cultures. Ideally, you would achieve these things through travel, but in these times of Covid restrictions, you probably cannot do this. This means you have to travel in other ways – through books and film. Talk to people from different cultures. You might hear from people far way because Mercury Retrograde will attract them to you. Do what you can to satisfy your love of beauty and learning. Explore new avenues in publishing, the media, medicine and the law.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are an intense sign and in the next four weeks, your life will become even more intense. (“Her knuckles are very white.”) For starters, romance and love affairs will be passionate! The stuff of movies. This could be because ex-lovers are back on the scene. (Sigh.) Or you might meet someone new through an old friend who has returned to your world? Romantic passion aside, details about inheritances, shared property and insurance matters will be a strong focus. Fortunately, Mercury Retrograde will help you wrap up old business in these matters. You will also receive a gift, an inheritance or a favour from someone in the next month. Major bonus!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

For the next four weeks, the Sun and Mercury retrograde are sitting directly opposite your sign, which is a sure indication that you will hear from ex-partners and friends from your past. Plus, it will give you an opportunity for closure and a chance to learn more and catch up on old news. (Trade lies about the bad old days.) You might even learn more about your style of relating and your values with your closest one-to-one relationships. Meanwhile, your sex drive is amped because of the placement of Mars in your chart. However, this same placement can also indicate disputes about shared property, mortgages, inheritances, loans and debt. Overall picture: A fascinating time with others, especially people from your past.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You are hard-working. “No slackers allowed!” You like efficiency and you hate waste. These are some reasons you’ll be happier in the next four weeks. That’s because your main goal will be to get better organized. You want to work smart and be effective in everything you do. You will make lists and tackle old jobs that you’ve been meaning to get to for a while. Not only will you work to organize your world, you want to improve your health as well. “I want it all!” Coworkers will be supportive. Please note: Your ability to finish old jobs and work that has been dragging on and on will be stellar. You’ll wrap up this stuff in a flash. Show us your superpower!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’re entering one of the most fun-filled months of the year! Mercury Retrograde will attract old flames from your past. Meanwhile, parents might hear from kids who wandered off the block. Your personal goal will be to enjoy yourself and express your creative urges. (“Look, ma! No hands!”) Social outings, the arts, sports, playful activities with kids and the freedom to be just who you are and express yourself without fear or hesitation will be the order of the day! In a perfect world, you would go away on a vacation. With current restrictions, you will have to have a vacation the best way you can make it happen. “We’re booking male dancers and ordering a case of wine.”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your focus on home, family and your personal and private life will be much stronger than usual in the next four weeks. Your interaction with a parent will be significant. Furthermore, you will be in touch with relatives you have not seen or heard from in a while. If they are safely in your bubble, they’ll be perched at your place and eating out of your fridge. Some of you have a strong urge now to redecorate and make your digs look prettier. A few velvet pillows on that new sofa? Fiery Mars will urge you to be active in sports and fun athletics, especially with your kids. Despite these busy distractions, you will value quiet moments to cocoon at home, as well. Nice.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, May 9 to Saturday, May 15, 2021

All Signs

We are approaching the second Mercury retrograde this year: May 28 – June 22. However, a shadow period extends this window while Mercury is slowing down and catching up; hence we have May 16 – July 8. Obviously, Mercury always moves forward; but relative to planet Earth, it “appears” to go backwards and when that occurs, silly, goofy errors and delays plague our lives. Aagh! Plus, these are poor times to buy “Mercury-related” items like computers, cell phones, cars, trucks and bikes OR to start new projects or businesses. But! Mercury Retrograde is a wonderful time to wrap up old business and be introspective. Consider: You will never again be as young as you are reading these words.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

For the next three months, you will be more contemplative. Something in your immediate environment will make you think of profound realizations like the fact that every moment, you are approaching the end of your life, which is why you have to decide what you should do with the time left to you. Sobering, indeed. What’s happening is that for the next three months, Jupiter, the planet of wisdom, will be in the part of your chart associated with spirituality. This will make you more empathetic and give you a deeper understanding of the world. If you don’t take the cloth, at least, take the free condiments.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your popularity will increase in the next three months. In fact, your friends will benefit you, which is why this is not the time to go it alone. Oh no. Enjoy interaction with friends and groups (online or in person) because they will play an important part in your life and help you attain your wishes for the future. It’s important to know that regarding your interactions with others, whatever you put out will come back to you in an even greater quantity. Quite literally, “What goes around, comes around” will really apply! This is fortunate because many of you will decide to work for social reform and make changes for the better. Bravo!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

“Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!” Oh my! is right because lucky Jupiter will be at the top of your chart for the next three months. (This happens only once every 12 years.) However, Jupiter will return to the top of your chart in Jan. 2022 for four months; and then return again for two months in November. So, consider this a preview of coming attractions. Jupiter at the top of your chart signifies promotions at work, public recognition, accolades, prizes and acknowledgements for your efforts. Very dazzling! If you don’t get a promotion, then you’ll have a chance to change your job or field of work to medicine, healing, the law, higher education or travel. It’s one of the best influences you can have!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

For the next three months, your desire to expand your world and increase your knowledge will be strong. Traditionally, this would be a time when you would travel or do something to enrich your life. Obviously, with the restrictions of Covid 19, you cannot do this. However, you can do something in a more abstract way to learn, study and expand your world by taking courses, reading and seeing the world online. Join a consciousness-raising group. You might explore opportunities in publishing, the media or something to do with higher education. One thing is certain: Something will expand your world. Yes!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Lucky moneybags Jupiter will slip into your Money House and stay for the next three months. Ka-ching! Specifically, this is the Money House that relates to the money and wealth that you share with others – money back from the government, shared property, inheritances, money from insurance, wealth that comes indirectly through someone else. This means that in the next three months, these specific areas will expand or be magnified in some way, which means you’re going to get gifts, goodies and favours from others! Oh yeah, keep your pockets open! Whatever happens will be powerful, fortunate changes in your life at this time.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Oh joy! This week, lucky Jupiter will move to sit opposite your sign for the next three months. This is a lovely benefit for you! It will improve your closest relationships and partnerships. In fact, this is such a wonderful benefit to partnerships, the next three months are the best times to get married in the last 12 years. (Fear not Jupiter will return to your House of Partnerships in Jan. 2022 for four months; and then again for two months in November.) This three-month window of time is also an excellent time to consult professionals. It will even improve your interactions with members of the general public. Basically, it improves all your relationships. Sweet!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The good news for your sign is that in the next three months, your health will improve. You will feel more vigourous, more lively and more optimistic! If you are recovering from an illness, this three-month window will assist the process. (Be careful about gaining weight.) In addition, this is an excellent time for any kind of work or duties that you do. In terms of your job, you can improve your job or improve your workspace, and even improve your relationships with your coworkers. If this doesn’t happen, then instead, you can get a better job! (Goodbye suckers!) You will also gain the esteem and admiration of your peers. (As a paw-note, many of you will also enjoy increased pleasure with pets.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Lucky you! Jupiter is all about optimism and pleasure. In the next three months, Jupiter will move into the part of your chart associated with vacations, fun, games, playful activities with kids, sports, the arts and your creative expression. All the fun stuff! (This includes financial speculation.) Because you will be more in touch with your creative self-expression, you will find the courage to be yourself! You will express yourself without fear or apology. Your relations with children will improve. Romance will blossom in a dazzling way. It will be a wonderful opportunity for personal growth and increased wisdom because you have the personal freedom to express who you are. (Buy something wonderful to wear!)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Lucky Jupiter is your ruler, which is why many Sagittarians are fortunate people. In the next three months, lucky Jupiter will move into the part of your chart symbolizing home and family. This means relations with family members will become warmer and happier. Family members will be more generous to each other. You will feel pleased about where you live. Some of you might move to something bigger and better. Others will renovate where you live to improve your home. This same blessing will also give you a chance to make money from real-estate speculation. If you rent, you will still improve where you live or rent something better. You will feel happier and content to be in your own skin. Bonus!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Jupiter is the planet associated with magnification, expansion and increase. It makes things bigger and better! In the next three months, it will move into a part of your chart relating to your daily habits, daily contacts and daily communications. Obviously, it will increase your contacts in the world either in person or on-line. It will stimulate your mind by bringing opportunities for advanced training or study. Many of you will read and write more than usual and with great enjoyment. Relations with siblings and relatives will improve and you might receive financial benefits from them. Ka-ching! In the bigger picture, your plans for the future will be more ambitious and your daily communications will be more positive. (We like!)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Good news! For the next three months, lucky, moneybags Jupiter will sit in your House of Money and Earnings, which means you have an opportunity to get richer and boost your earnings in some way. Definitely! You might earn more money or get a better paying job; or you might increase your assets, even if you have to buy them. (Nevertheless, you will feel richer.) To put a finer point on it, Jupiter will increase whatever it is you most value. Take a real look at your overall goals to see what you really must have in order to achieve them. Jupiter will help you do this. It will increase the dimension of your life that is most important to you.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Well, well, well. Lucky Jupiter is going to enter your sign and stay there for the next three months. (It does this once every 12 years, which means that in your adult life you experience this maybe five times?) Usually, it will stay in your sign for one year. However, after being in your sign for three months this year, it will return in Jan. 2022 for four months; and then return again for two months in November. This signifies the beginning of a new major cycle of growth in your life. It will be a time of learning and gaining new experiences. You will easily attract people to you who are beneficial and of course, it will be a time that is fortunate for you in personal terms. Jupiter will give you divine protection. Sweet!

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, May 2, to Saturday, May 8 2021

All Signs

This week begins with tough love because on Monday, relationships with parents and bosses are strained. We are forced to deal with balancing what “we want to do” versus what “we should do.” (I hate that.) Self- gratification versus duties and responsibilities. Oy! Things will be depressing and restrictive for many. News in the media will be bleak and we will feel the weight of the world on our shoulders. Fortunately, the rest of the week gets better and better and by Thursday, relationships are hot and sexy! And by Saturday, everyone wants to enjoy the company of old faces! “Natasha!” “Boris!” (“Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.”)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your emphasis on money, cash flow and earnings continues to be strong this week. It’s important for you to know that things are better than they actually look. You will attract money and goods to you, so keep the faith. Having said that, during the beginning of the week, you will be disappointed because you might be turned down or you might hear depressing news that impacts your earnings and spending power. Arrrg. Nevertheless, stay strong because as the week unfolds, your financial scene looks better! Therefore, cope as best you can with the chaos and increased activity on the home front. It is what it is. People will help and the cash will come. “Friendship is the bread of life but money is the honey.”

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You continue to be empowered because it’s your turn to replenish yourself for the rest of the year. You are also attracting favours, gifts and resources to you. Admittedly, this week starts out tough. You might feel discouraged. You might wish you didn’t have to work or deal with certain people. Issues with parents and bosses will be restrictive. But lo! What news from yonder modem breaks? As your week unfolds (not unravels), your mood transforms into feelings of passion and excitement. Romance will be promising! The arts will appeal! By the end of the week, you will be happier enjoying the company of others. Websites must be scoured! Money must be spent!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your ruler Mercury enters your sign on Monday, which will make you more talkative and able to put a great deal of yourself into whatever you have to say. Your mind will be busy jumping from topic to topic and you will seek new, fresh experiences! Normally, Mercury is in your sign for about two weeks once a year. However, this time, Mercury will be in your sign for 11 weeks! (Whaaat?) Yes! Until Sunday July 11. The reason for this is that Mercury is going to go retrograde in your sign from May 16 to July 8. (The last time this happened was six years ago in 2015.) This is a major deal! Don’t be discouraged at the beginning of the week when life feels tough because this week gets easier and easier as it unfolds.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your popularity with others and your interaction with groups continues to be strong; nevertheless, someone will oppose you at the beginning of the week. Whatever happens might make you feel discouraged to the point of even changing your future goals. Don’t let this get you down because these difficulties and restrictions will disappear. In fact, someone, perhaps someone creative, artistic or attractive will make things better for you. In some cases, a friend will become a lover. But all of you will feel relieved and happier because of this person. Meanwhile, you are strong and vigourous because fiery Mars is in your sign. “I can do this!”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You continue to garner the admiration of others because the Sun is still at the top of your chart along with Venus, which is a very favourable influence! Nevertheless, at the beginning of the week, you might be slammed by harsh news or have difficulty dealing with a parent or a boss. This might curtail your plans or create problems. Definitely a bummer. The thing to know is that this is the only tough time this week. Once you deal with this, things will get better and better, and ironically, by the end of the week, your reputation will shine! People will think so highly of you that some of you will begin a romance with your boss or someone “important.”. As for Monday? “Even a hurricane only lasts for a day.”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a powerful time because five planets are cresting the top of your chart. You have a take-charge style dealing with others; and you’re eager to study and expand your horizons and share your idea as best you can in these times of Covid restrictions. Nevertheless, as the week begins, rules and regulations or legal matters (possibly something medical) will create difficulties or disappointments. The good news is that once you get over this initial hump, your week gets better and better. Romance with someone different might blossom. You will also have an increasing enjoyment of other cultures and their arts and crafts because you have a stronger appreciation of beauty.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

I recently read that Bruce Lee said, “Don’t speak negatively about yourself even as a joke. Your body doesn’t know the difference. Words are energy and cast spells, that’s why it’s called spelling.” Wise words! Meanwhile, you want to improve yourself; and in your desire to do so, you might be self-critical. Don’t be discouraged about your shortcomings. Cut yourself some slack. Be kind to yourself and remember that you’re doing your best – for today. This week begins with discouraging news about finances, taxes, debt or shared property. But you will handle this! As the week progresses, gifts, goodies and favours will come to you. A fabulous change!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Many of you need more sleep this week and are focused on your closest one-to-one relationships because the Sun is opposite your sign. This happens once a year and when it does, it offers you a chance to gain greater insight into your style of relating to others. However, at the beginning of the week, you might clash with a parent or a boss. You won’t get the approval or permission you want. Your plans might be dashed. You will be discouraged. Fortunately, these feelings lessen to the point that later in the week, relations with others are excellent! This week is a true transformation in that sense. For some of you, a new, passionate romance will begin.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You still want to get better organized, become healthier and work as efficiently as possible. Noble goals! However, this Sunday or Monday, some kind of barrier might hold you back from doing what you want to do. Relations with authority figures will be testy. In addition, your energy will be low and you will feel depressed about the state of the world. More than any other sign, sometimes you need to take a news fast or a break from the media because it’s important for you to maintain your optimism about life. Speaking of which, this week gets better and by the end of the week, everything will fall in place for you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Although this is a lighthearted time for you, at the beginning of this week, something will discourage you. It could be difficulty dealing with your kids, or a challenge to your plans for a social event or perhaps it is related to sports. For some of you, this challenge could be a disappointment with a romantic relationship. None of this sounds like fun. The important thing to know is your situation will improve rapidly this week. Trust me. Whatever difficulties you encounter at the beginning of the week soon will be history. By the end of the week, romantic relationships, relations with your kids and social plans will be exciting and promising!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your relationship with a parent or relations with your family will be challenging at the beginning of this week. This is almost a certainty. Maybe someone has put their foot down or shut down your ideas, which makes you feel blocked or restricted in some way? Perhaps a home project is overwhelming? Two things are going to turn this situation around for you. The placement of Mars right now gives you lots of energy to work hard him, which means you will accomplish a lot this week. Furthermore, a Venus influence will greatly ameliorate your difficulties at home and in fact, redecorating plans, real-estate plans and relations with family members will be fine! (Whew!)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might be worried about something this week to the point that you feel victimized. “Why me?” This is because something in your daily world will discourage you or make you feel shut out or blocked. Naturally, this will be discouraging. In truth, everyone feels a challenge at the beginning of this week. You are not alone. Don’t fall into worry mode because this difficulty is brief. Already by Thursday, things look much better! And by the weekend, you’re laughing! Continue with your ideas to improve where you live with DIY projects and home repairs. Mars will guarantee fun times with others, especially with romance and sports. It’s all good.

April 9 Moon Goddess’ Current Phase

Today the Moon will be in a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Visit the April 2021 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waning Crescent Phase

The Waning Crescent on April 9 has an illumination of 6%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On April 9 the Moon is 27.13 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

March 29 Moon Goddess’ Current Phase

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Gibbous Phase. This is the first phase after the Full Moon occurs. It lasts roughly 7 days with the Moon’s illumination growing smaller each day until the Moon becomes a Last Quarter Moon with an illumination of 50%. The average Moon rise for this phase is between 9pm and Midnight depending on the age of the phase. The moon rises later and later each night setting after sunrise in the morning. During this phase the Moon can also be seen in the early morning daylight hours on the western horizon.

Visit the March 2021 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waning Gibbous Phase

The Waning Gibbous on March 29 has an illumination of 99%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On March 29 the Moon is 15.57 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

The 8 Lunar Phases

There are 8 lunar phases the Moon goes through in its 29.53 days lunar cycle. The 4 major Moon phases are Full Moon, New Moon, First Quarter and Last Quarter. Between these major phases, there are 4 minor ones: the Waxing Crescent, Waxing Gibbous, Waning Gibbous and Waning Crescent. For more info on the Moon Cycle and on each phase check out Wikipedia Lunar Phase page.

Weekly HoroscopeSunday, March 28 to Saturday, April 3 2021

All Signs

Oh my, April is arriving in style! This week Mercury will move into Aries to join the Sun and Venus already in Aries to create an imposing fiery trio! Everyone will be direct and to the point. Quick and fast. In and out. “Finito!” “Vamonos!” Meanwhile, fiery Mars in Gemini continues to stoke our desire to talk, explain, listen, whisper and relish gossip. (“I heard she got the house, the car and the plane and he kept the cabin at Silverstar?”) The slower moving planets are all where we left them. This means that overall, this will be a high-energy week that is fast-paced and definitely, a bit competitive. (My partner and I laugh about how competitive we are. But I laugh more.)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a powerful week for you! The Sun, Mercury and Venus are all in your sign. Naturally, the Sun will give you energy and a chance to replenish yourself for the rest of the year. Mercury will encourage you to express your POV to everyone. Your mind will be busy; you will be talkative; and you will want to get out and hustle! (And travel, if you can.) Fortunately, Venus in your sign will soften some of this cheeky energy and help you to be charming and diplomatic with everyone. Your warmth and friendliness will melt those who are close to you. Incidentally, this is an excellent week to buy wardrobe goodies. (Check the Moon Alert.) Your ruler Mars will make you unusually persuasive and heighten your desire to communicate verbally, by mail, or by smoke signals.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

“May you live in interesting times” was a Chinese curse. This week will be interesting but you need not be worried. Nevertheless, the powerful energy from the Aries trio (see All Signs above) will stir up hidden things for you. On the upside, it will promote your ability to research and sleuth out information and hidden answers. It will also attract secret love affairs to you. However, it can stir up suppressed psychological energies regarding unresolved problems in relationships. If this energy surfaces, be aware of your behaviour. In particular, you might be more aggressive than usual about financial matters, cash flow or your possessions. (Twenty years from now, will this matter?) Keep things in perspective – stay chill.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A lovely, friendly week ahead! You’re in top form! (With fiery Mars in your sign who would expect less?) Do remember that this energy from Mars in your sign, (which lasts about six weeks) can happen only once every two years. This means now is your chance to show the world what you can do! Meanwhile, all this fiery energy from the Aries trio mentioned in All Signs above, will promote your interaction with friends and groups. Your exchanges with younger people and artistic, creative people will prompt you to think differently about your future. You might decide to reach for more exciting possibilities? You might want to change your appearance? Very likely, you will realize life isn’t a rehearsal – this is the real thing. Go for baroque!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a powerful time because that trio of Aries energy that I mentioned in All Signs above is sitting at the very top of your chart! All hail, Caesar! You make a great impression on others now. Your conversations with others will be well timed and to the point. In fact, you will schmooze with bosses and VIPs so well, a flirtation might begin with someone? Actually, this is more likely than you think because the influence of Mars will encourage a secret love affair. (You cheeky devil.) Since this is a strong influence, and we all know you love an adoring peanut gallery – be mindful that it would be foolish to threaten a permanent relationship with a mere bonbon.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your urge to travel and do something to expand your horizons is stronger than ever this week. This is because now there is a trio of Aries energy in your fellow Fire Sign encouraging you to explore new avenues in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. You will be keen to take courses and learn more. Obviously, as part of this desire to expand your world, travel would be a compelling choice. Who knows? Vaccines might permit this – but maybe not. Meanwhile, fiery Mars continues to encourage some kind of competitive situation in a group (perhaps physical sports?) Or with a friend. Do you the know tune to “Anything you can do I can do better?”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your ambition is still strong! Small wonder because Mars at the top of your chart arouses your ambition for almost two months. It’s important to know that this influence can happen only once every two years. That’s why you might as well use this energy. If you want to boldly go where no man has gone before, now is the time! Meanwhile, this trio of Aries energy that I mention in All Signs above will heighten your focus on taxes, debt, shared property and even differing values with someone else. It will also heighten your interest in sex. You will be more passionate than usual. Not only that, you will attract money to you. (Now that’s a curious combo.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

In All Signs above, I mention a strong planetary trio of Aries energy. For your sign, this is taking place directly opposite you! This means your awareness of partners, spouses and close friends will be more acute and more accurate. Obviously, you will learn something from this. (And why wouldn’t you because happy relationships support a happy life.) Mercury will encourage discussions, while Venus will encourage warmth and mutual understanding. This is important because your sign, more than any other sign in the zodiac, likes to have someone else sitting on the other side of your teeter-totter. You’re not a loner.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This will be a productive week for you because this high-energy trio of Aries planets (see All Signs above) will encourage you to work harder than ever before. In fact, your desire to get organized and work smart will be paramount. You will also apply this same determined energy to improve your health. You will like this drive because Aries and Scorpio are very similar signs. In fact, until Pluto was discovered in 1930, they shared the same ruler Mars. You are both proactive and willing to fight for what you want. The difference is that Aries goes for immediate gratification – while you bide your time, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. (Yikes!)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a delightful and exciting week for you because that trio of Aries energy that I mention in All Signs (see above) takes place in your fellow Fire Sign, which of course, offers you tremendous support – physically, psychologically and even in the everyday events of your life. (“Elementary, my dear Watson.”) This is why things will flow more easily for you right now. It’s also why you feel playful, prankish and ready for fun! If possible, this is the perfect time for a vacation. It’s also a wonderful time to express your creative energy and to enjoy rewarding activities with kids. In fact, all fun plans including social encounters with others will appeal. This week, you’re a winner!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your focus on home, family and your private life has increased even more so this week because now, a trio of planets will channel your energy in that direction. For some, this will mean increased involvement with a parent. For others, it will mean you want to cocoon more and relax at home or “hide.” Many of you will use this energy to do home repairs or redecorating projects and certainly, to entertain (specially to show off what you have done). Whatever your plans, the placement of Mars will give you the energy to follow through on your ideas. This is definitely a productive week for you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your pace has been accelerating for the last few weeks and this week, it will accelerate even more. Oh yes, fasten your seatbelts! In part, this is because you are encountering new ideas, new faces, new places and learning new things, which makes life stimulating! (You’re certainly not sitting around getting dusty.) But what is particularly enriching is that while all this increased stimulation is taking place, it also brings a heightened awareness to your daily world making you see the beauty of everything around you – including the people close to you. How illuminating! This is valuable knowledge.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

No matter what is happening in your life, this week you will definitely be focused on money, earnings and cash flow as well as something to do with your possessions. For starters, many of you are thinking about moneymaking ideas more than usual. Plus, you will attract money to you in addition to which you will spend money on beautiful things for yourself and your loved ones. It will feel good to enhance your self-image – and why not? Love yourself. Love how you look. You only get one time around at this, right? Meanwhile, increased chaos and activity on the home scene are unavoidable. This could be visiting guests, renovations, repairs – whatever. Cope as best you can.

15 March Moon Goddess’ Current Phase

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waxing Crescent Phase. A Waxing Crescent is the first Phase after the New Moon and is a great time to see the features of the moon’s surface. During this phase the Moon can be seen in the wester sky after the sun dips below the horizon at sunset. The moon is close to the sun in the sky and mostly dark except for the right edge of the moon which becomes brighter as the days get closer to the next phase which is a First Quarter with a 50% illumination.

Visit the March 2021 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waxing Crescent Phase

The Waxing Crescent on March 15 has an illumination of 4%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On March 15 the Moon is 1.92 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

For Your Local Time and Date  

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, March 7 to Saturday, March 13, 2021

All Signs

Neptune is the planet of dreams, inspiration and imagination as well as illusion, confusion and deceit. Neptune takes 165 years to travel through all 12 signs, and right now it is in Pisces from 2012 to 2025. (When it was last in Pisces from 1847 to 1861, photography came into its own to the chagrin of outlaws in the Wild West.) This week, the Sun lines up with Neptune, which happens once a year. A few days later, the Moon lines up with Neptune, which happens once a month. A double whammy of selflessness and self-deception. “I’d walk through fire for my best friend. Well, not fire – that would be dangerous. But a super humid room…. but not too humid because, you know .. my hair.”

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You get the biggest hit of this fuzzy Neptunian action because it’s all taking place where Neptune lives in your chart. This might make you more aware of childhood behaviour patterns from your past. Now that you see them, you can see how inappropriate they are. You also might see that you’re giving out mixed messages to people: “Come close!” “I need to be alone.” “Come close!” “Go away.” You might also feel that you need to be a bit sacrificial and take one for the team, or work for someone else’s benefit. Actually, this could be rewarding because we get self-respect and self-love by helping others. (Of course, you have to keep score.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a tricky week for dealing with friends and members of groups because you’re inclined to idealize someone and expect a lot from them. (Especially if you admire them.) Unfortunately, when you put someone up on a pedestal, they are bound to disappoint you. Furthermore, if you had expectations that you didn’t express – this is a guarantee for disappointment. When we feel idealistic about someone, we think they should be able to read our minds. Somehow “they should know.” (Ha!) But that’s not realistic, is it? Meanwhile, on the upside, you might make ambitious goals for the future this week. “Follow your bliss!”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a tricky week because this illusory Neptunian influence is taking place at the top of your chart, which could create confusion with parents, bosses, teachers and VIPs – even the police. You might feel disappointed with someone you admire because you expected more, or you feel let down or unnoticed. Possibly, you feel that you’re letting yourself down because you have these high goals and now you can’t achieve them? Give yourself credit for what you are doing. This is a tough year for so many. If you are coping and taking the time to be aware of the needs of others as well as your own – congratulations!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your idealism is aroused this week – without question. For many, it will equate with philosophical ideals or something to do with religion or how to address society and the world community in a meaningful way? (Heady stuff.) In a more personal way, you might develop a crush on someone who is “different.” You might also become more involved with wanting to help people in another culture, people who are less fortunate than you. Meanwhile, be careful about confusion when dealing with the law this week. Stay realistic and if you can’t be honest, then say nothing. Don’t lie because this will get you in even deeper and create further regrets. You will find it gratifying to learn something new. (Did you know that baby porcupines are called “porcupettes?”)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This week as both the Sun and the Moon line up with Neptune, you might face a situation where your values are at odds with the values of someone else. This is a sobering reality, especially if this person is dear to you. This is something you have to live with because you can’t change other people’s values – only they can. There might also be confusion about inheritances, shared property, taxes, debt or how to spend a certain amount of money or share something. We have different ideas about what generosity means. Keep in mind that Leos are very generous. They will even borrow money to lend it to someone. Very few would do this.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your closest relationships – spouse, partner or dear friend, could be the source of some confusion and disappointment for you this week. In all likelihood, you might be expecting too much from this person? Or perhaps you have not expressed your expectations? (After all, they can’t read your mind.) Misunderstandings and confused communications will be classic. On the upside, you might also have a mind-meld with someone because your Spidey sense is highly developed now when it comes to dealing with others. So, this situation could go either way. You might feel disappointed or disillusioned or you might feel a true, almost spiritual bond with someone.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The Neptunian influence that is present this week will introduce tendencies to be selfless and altruistic and to be willing to work for others without reward and even without recognition. (This is kinda tough to do unless you have a Mother Teresa style.) Nevertheless, it’s possible. Therefore, if you find yourself in a situation where you are giving more and going more than halfway to help someone else – just suck it up. It’s par for the course right now. It’s okay, you’re not being a martyr or a fool. This is an influence that can permeate your job or something to do with your health or even your relationship with a pet. “It’s a joy to labour for those you love.”

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The conjunction of the Sun and the Moon with Neptune will create number of possibilities for you this week. One is it could relate to romance. You might be head over heels in love with someone and expecting a fairytale. If this doesn’t happen, you might be disappointed. Kierkegaard said, “The most painful state is remembering the future.” Neptune triggers disillusionment. You might also feel disappointed with your kids. Or you might feel disappointed with your own creative output or lack of it. However, on the upside you might be completely open to your muse and be in touch with your artistic expression. This Neptune influence can create many possibilities.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The area where you might have the greatest misunderstandings this week will be with home and family. Conversations with a parent might be like two ships passing in the night. Relatives might not understand what you’re trying to do or what is important to you? Or perhaps someone in the family accuses you of misunderstanding them? This could lead to disappointment. Or perhaps this influence will inspire you to be the best that you can possibly be for a family member? You want to do whatever you can within your power to help them or make their life happier and easier. You might even use this same influence to redecorate or create more beauty in your home. It can manifest in many ways.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Please make an effort to be as clear as possible in your dealings and communications with your everyday world this week to avoid serious misunderstandings that might occur. In fact, you might encounter someone who misleads you. At its worst, you might even doubt your own ideas and thoughts? However, you might also pursue studies, conversations and ideas about metaphysics, mystical subjects, karma and reincarnation because you want to understand how things work. Neptune can create illusion but it can also put you in touch with your highest ideals. It’s a mixed bag.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This week it’s important for you to keep your eyes open because the Neptunian influence that I mention in All Signs above can affect your assets, your wealth, your money and your cash flow. Think twice before you give something away. Make sure you know what you’re doing with how you handle your possessions and your wealth this week. Above all, you don’t want to have regrets later about what you do now. Likewise, be careful about sudden splurges of extravagance. If you are tempted to blow your money, keep your receipts – and the box. Things might not be as they appear. The worst-case scenario is that you are even being deceived in some way. (Yikes!)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Well, all this Neptunian influence is happening right before your very eyes because the Sun is lining up with Neptune in Pisces; and this week, the Moon will be in Pisces and it too, will line up with Neptune. In addition to which, fair Venus is also in Pisces. Yes, it’s all about you! You might experience two extremes of these influences or both. You might feel turned on by ideals, dreams and the love of beauty to the point that it feels spiritual and that you are in touch with the Divine. Alternatively, you might feel disappointed, disillusioned and discouraged because life isn’t turning out how you had hoped it would. Actually, both these extremes are an illusion. Do not give into either one. If your head is in the clouds, make sure your feet are on the ground. Trust to your own staying power because within a matter of weeks, everything will change.

Here’s Your Horoscope For March 2021

We are constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it’s which zodiac signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. In this March 2021 monthly horoscope, Astrologer Six, creator of BlackWomenCry, shares the astrological events happening this month that will affect every zodiac sign.

As the ice begins to melt and life re-enters our slowly awakening Earth, we’re required to be patient with ourselves and our surroundings. Change rarely comes without disruptions or difficulties, so be open to experiencing the occasional slip-up or dedicating extra time to ensure that projects are executed correctly.

The sun is currently in Pisces until March 20. Take the first half of the month as a time to meditate and reflect on the lessons learned from previous astrological seasons. Similar to the zodiac wheel, life is cyclical and we’re capable of utilizing the past to better understand how to navigate the future.

On March 4, Mars — the planet ruling drive and action — enters the sign Gemini, bringing with it more banter and witty expressions. Mars leaving the Earth sign Taurus, which forced us to move slowly and practice patience, won’t be an inconsequential transit. While Taurus energy likes to stay in its lane and focus on what’s in front of it, Mars in Gemini encourages us to branch out, as well as understand perspectives and rationales that differ from our own. The new moon on March 13 will bring a sense of emotional renewal. Noteworthy dreams and remarkable ideas will surface during this time, so be sure to take notes and meditate over possible new ventures.

After going retrograde in February, Mercury — the planet ruling over communication and thinking — is direct within the sign Aquarius. Agile Mercury will remain in its post-shadow until March 13, meaning that it’s retracing its retrograde movements through the sign Aquarius until it returns to the point before going retrograde on January 30. Take stock of the experiences had during Mercury retrograde periods. No matter how frustrating they can be, Mercury doesn’t have a vendetta against you. The post-shadow period is granting you time to recycle old material or ideas, along with making sure that you carefully improve on old projects.

On March 20, the Sun enters feisty fire sign Aries, bringing with it more opportunities to take risks and put ourselves out there, which is key to starting the astrological new year off on the right foot.

Happy Birthday, Aries!

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, February 28 to March 6, 2021

All Signs

This week fiery Mars enters Gemini to stay until April 23. (That’s seven weeks!) Mars is big-time energy. It activates different parts of our charts to stimulate different areas of our lives. It also affects us personally in terms of our physical and emotional energy. Read your sign (as well as your Rising Sign if you know it) to find out how this blast of energy will affect you. Einstein discovered a formula for the relationship between energy and mass. Apparently, when mass is in pajamas, the level of energy is diminished. It is practically inert in the presence of pizza with pepperoni, mushroom with extra cheese. (No anchovies.)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Holy cannelloni! You’re entering a super, turbocharged seven weeks! This is because Mars will be in the part of your chart that affects your everyday activities. The pace of your days will accelerate. You face a jampacked schedule full of errands, tasks, short trips and everyday hustle and bustle. Not only will Mars energize the activity of your days, it will affect your style of talking to others, especially relatives, siblings and neighbours. You want to express your ideas! You will say what you mean and mean what you say! In addition, many of you will write, study and read more than usual. Busy you!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You are the financial wizard of the zodiac. (You practically mint money in your backyard.) Mars will now activate your primary Money House for the next seven weeks, which is why you will identify with your wealth and possessions so much. You will feel like you are what you own. Of course, this is silly, (admittedly you are your car.) Hence you might have disputes about the ownership of something. You might also be excited about a special purchase. Your drive to earn money and act on your moneymaking ideas will be strong! You also might find yourself defending your values to someone. (That’s Mars.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Hello world! For the first time in two years, fiery Mars will be in your sign for seven weeks. On the upside, this will boost your energy. You’ll be like Popeye after a can of spinach. “I yam what I yam!” Not only will Mars increase your energy, it will make you more competitive and aggressive when dealing with others. You’ll be more of a fighter for your own rights than usual. If attacked, you will respond! However, this supercharged physical energy will help you to get lots of work done. Be careful you don’t come on too strong with others. Even though this is your chance to show the world what you can do – don’t be pushy. Make nice with people.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Not since the spring of 2019, have you felt what you’re going to feel for the next seven weeks. This is because the strong energy of Mars will be “hiding” in your chart. This is not what Mars likes to do. Mars wants to lead the charge into battle! This means you might feel frustrates and irritable. When you try to create a good impression on someone, something might backfire, and you find yourself being your own worst enemy. (Eeek!) What’s happening is that Mars is revealing the self-defeating acts that you do (we all do). Suddenly they’re so obvious! If you want to accuse someone of something, the truth is you’re actually in confrontation with yourself. On the upside, this offers a valuable learning curve about your hidden impulses and tendencies.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Mars will be in the part of your chart that affects your friendships and groups. This brings a mixed blessing. On the upside, it will energize you and make you take a leadership role. However, it could make you so bossy, your intentions will backfire. The solution is to coordinate your needs with the needs of others. Look for a win-win solution. You will also be super competitive, which is good if you’re physically active in sports. Not so good in meetings, perhaps. (Zoom or in person.) One positive influence is Mars will stimulate your desire to pursue your goals. Ironically, you will more easily achieve these goals by working with others.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Mars is often a mixed blessing for some signs but for you, it will be a winning thing because for the next seven weeks, Mars will travel across the top of your chart, arousing your ambition more than it’s been pumped for about years. Once you identify a project, you will work extremely hard to achieve your aims. You will want to be independent in whatever you do; and of course, you will want credit. Ideally, you should be your own boss. (Note: conflict with employers, bosses and parents is likely.) The key to your success is to remember your objective. Maybe you will achieve your objective by working better with others? Consider this. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For the next seven weeks, Mars will stimulate your desire to travel. However, most people cannot travel due to Covid restrictions (even though a glance at any street, highway or airport will show you that people are travelling). You will have to be creative. What is really driving you, is your desire for adventure and a chance to learn something new. You want to see new places, new faces and learn new things! How can you do this without physically travelling? Start by getting excited with creative, intellectual work. Do whatever you can to expand your mind. Many will be more involved with the law or something to do with medicine. Publishing and the media will also be activated. Expect an exciting time ahead!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

In the next seven weeks, you might find yourself in a dispute with someone about shared property, inheritances or anything to do with joint resources, particularly money. (Perhaps how to spend a certain amount of money?) This conflict might be about the wealth of someone else, especially a partner. Or perhaps you’re attracted to someone who has a powerful effect upon you and causes you to change? This could be due to a disagreement about values? Meanwhile, Mars will boost your sex drive and make you very passionate. This is a fact. One thing is certain: as you assert yourself in the world, you might discover you have to let go of old ways of doing things and try something new.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

For the first time in two years, fiery Mars will be opposite your sign for the next seven weeks. This means you will have to be more patient with partners, spouses and close friends. Mars opposite your sign tends to make you annoyed with others. (That’s because they probably are.) But hey, your reaction or response is within your control, right? To save yourself a lot of grief, resist the urge to just react. Instead, take a beat and process what you’re thinking. What do you want to achieve? Be clear about this and then respond. (Lose the knee-jerk reaction.) For example, if someone annoys you, and you react — this escalates things and you have a rotten evening. Do you want to have a rotten evening? No, you don’t. Your call. Simple.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Lucky you! Although the energy of Mars is creating disputes and problems for many people; for your sign, Mars will be useful to you in the next seven weeks, because it will help you to work hard and get things done. You’ll be willing to put aside today’s pleasure for today’s work. (Admirable!) Admittedly, many of you will work for the benefit of someone else but this is something that has to be done. Look for ways to work independently because you will not feel like a team player. Do be careful of health hazards, infections, fevers and accidents because Mars can trigger impulsive, reckless behaviour. Having said this, you will take pride in what you accomplish in the weeks ahead.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

For the most part, because fiery Mars will be in your fellow Air sign for in the next seven weeks, things will be good for you! Mars will make you feel confident, energized, decisive and willing to work. Nevertheless, it might stir up conflict with your kids. If so, remember who the adult is. The main influence that you will feel is that you want the freedom to be yourself and express yourself. You will want to do your own thing to an almost reckless degree. Romance will be hot and sexy! You’ll be aggressive in sports and keen to seek out fun diversions. And of course, you will want to play!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

It’s been two years since Mars travelled across the bottom of your chart. In one way, this will stir up a lot of deep, unconscious energy and perhaps trigger behaviour patterns from your past. (If you find yourself behaving compulsively and inappropriately – this is what’s happening.) Meanwhile, you can definitely expect increased activity, and even chaos, on the home front. Residential moves, redecorating projects as well as conflict with family members are some reasons for all this hubbub. Meanwhile, professionally speaking, someone might block your efforts to get ahead. Methinks you might be wise to keep a low profile – and keep your eyes open.
