Star-Weather Forecast: Spring Equinox 3/19/2024, Venus-Saturn Conjunction 3/21/2024

This is the Star-Weather Forecast for Spring Equinox on Tuesday, 3/19/2024, 8:06PM PDT, together with Venus-Saturn Conjunction on 3/21/2024, 04:09PM PDT.



PART I of the analysis applies to any time zone in the Pacific West Coast. PART II of the analysis applies to everyone and is organized by your Ascendant/Sun/Moon signs.


At the end of the post you'll find EFT tapping videos by Brad Yates to help release negative self-talk and remember that you belong, when the Chiron transits this year could make us feel extra sensitive and vulnerable.


PART I

First, what is the Spring Equinox chart? It is the ingress chart of Sun entering Aries at 0°00', also called the astrological New Year Chart. As Aries is ruled by Mars, it gives us our motivation for the year, where we would like to roll up our sleeves and get to work. It tells us where we expect to sow the seeds and reap for harvest.



For this chart, we look to Mars as the ruler of the Spring Equinox chart. And we look to the ascendant ruler to see the quality through which we would approach this new motivation.


With Mars in the 5th house Aquarius, we are looking to showcase our individuality and innate talents through the support of like-minded people, and for humanitarian/communal causes that have far-reaching, global, and generational implications. This is a time where we feel deeply motivated and compelled to apply our essence, spirit, and natural gifts toward a greater cause.


With North Node/Mercury/Chiron conjunct in Aries, we might have to encounter unpleasant information and be reminded of past wounds in the process, but we are embracing the healing. An example that I gave in the 2024 forecast, would be Lindsay Sterling applying her gifts in music and lending her social platform to marine biology research, like communicating with marine mammals through sound to better learn about global warming.


It is fascinating that the quality with which we would approach this urge and desire to use our talents for the greater good, appears to be on the gentle and reciprocating side (as opposed to the in-your-face-ness aggression of 2023). With Libra ascendant conjuncting South Node, we are willing to meet the other in the middle, and even step into other people’s shoes and approach our goals from a “we” mentality that seeks out the path of win-win.


Further, with Venus exalted in Pisces, and Mars following and supporting Venus from Aquarius, our Mars motivation is following the leadership of Venus, which is connected to the spirit of Agape love, or love that is connected to the universal consciousness. In other words, we are leading with diplomacy rather than aggression. For example, instead of social change through rioting and disruptions, this is social change through diplomacy and peaceful action, like the peace march with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


And as Venus is further modified by the energies of Saturn, we know that we are putting ideals to reality. Saturn, the gatekeeper between ether and the manifested, in Pisces demand that we translate lofty ideals into practical and quantifiable/verifiable goals that can be broken down into realizable steps.



The Venus-Saturn conjunction on 3/21, happening in the 7th house for the Pacific West coast timezone, confirms the theme of concretizing practical partnerships based on mutuality, in order to reach a common goal that is aligned to higher ideals. Another practical example: government or regulatory bodies partnering with non-profits in order to fulfill their civic duty and reach their goals in social aid and programs.


With Saturn we very well may need to burst a couple bubbles in exchange for organization and feasibility (trim the scope, reduce spending to fit the budget, etc.) But as it is exalted in the 7th with Venus being comfortable in the 7th, we’ll even out the sacrifices on all fronts to reach the win-win compromise, or at least a perceived win-win for the collective.


As I said in the 2024 forecast, it’s a partnership heavy year where even individuality will need to happen through partnership (if that makes sense). With the Moon in Leo opposite Pluto and trine Sun in the 2024 Spring Equinox chart, we want to base our desire for recognition in the world through integrating our personal needs with the needs of our community, and let our inner Joan-of-Arc shine (Pluto in Aquarius 4th, the inner-furnace burning for transformation). Use this crusading spirit for social change, and channel the force toward peacefully stewarding mutually beneficial intentions. There is a willingness here, with Sun in the 6th, to put in the hard work for the collective so that we achieve the greatest good for all.


In mundane terms, as Sun is in conjunction with Neptune in this collective “motivations” chart, it’s not a far reach to imagine that we continue to focus our efforts in building virtual realities and dream worlds that fulfill all of our intimate needs and desires. Investments in virtual reality and virtual machines and any fringe industry continues to expand and do well as chart ascendant Venus, who rules financial resources, is in mutual receptivity to Jupiter in the 8th house of investments.


From a personal perspective, we want to keep showcasing our personal talents that can at first be unexpected or even taboo and disruptive to the status-quo. But as we take practical, solid, and consistent steps (Saturn 5th, Sun 6th), the outcome will be well-received (Venus-Saturn) and potentially gain partners, investors, or at least behind-the-scenes supporters. Just remember that while Venus-Saturn can impose limits and provisos on personal relationships, they do super-well together when oriented towards love for the people, as they are both planets of advocacy for the people. So be sure to showcase your talents with the intention of supporting others.



 

PART II

Here's the Venus-Saturn conjunction forecast by sign.


Check your Ascendant, Sun, and Moon. And if your ascendant falls in between 12°-30°, then also check the Ascendant AFTER yours. For example, if you are a Leo Ascendant between 12°-30°, then also check the Virgo forecast.


Libra Ascendant/Sun/Moon (Venus-Saturn in 6th):

You've been dreaming big and now refining the scope in your work sector. There are transpersonal bigger-than-life dreams that have been transmitted to your consciousness (Neptune-Sun conjunction). You may feel the itch and motivation to expand the scope of your work and/or level up in responsibilities. What’s needed now is to identify the practical and actionable steps that would lead you to the greatest growth in joint finances and investments, then orient your motivations toward it. Choose the work routine that gives you the greatest financial gain (and/or gain in spirituality/occult knowledge, or even intimacy with partner).


Virgo Ascendant/Sun/Moon (Venus-Saturn in 7th):

You've been dreaming big and now refining the scope in your partnership sector. There are transpersonal bigger-than-life dreams that have been transmitted to your consciousness (Neptune-Sun Conjunction). You may feel the itch and motivation to expand the scope of your partnerships. What’s needed now is to identify the practical and actionable steps that would lead you to the greatest growth in being recognized as a thought leader, perhaps through clever interdisciplinary partnerships that accentuate your personal expertise.


Leo Ascendant/Sun/Moon (Venus-Saturn in 8th):

You've been dreaming big and now refining the scope in your joint finances sector. There are transpersonal bigger-than-life dreams that have been transmitted to your consciousness (Neptune-Sun conjunction). You may feel the itch and motivation to expand the scope of your investments, and in some cases, work in spirituality and the occult. What’s needed now is to identify the practical and actionable steps that would lead you to the greatest growth in social reputation, career advancement, and purpose in society, then orient your motivations toward it.


Cancer Ascendant/Sun/Moon (Venus-Saturn in 9th):

You've been dreaming big and now refining the scope in your personal and professional expertise. There are transpersonal bigger-than-life dreams that have been transmitted to your consciousness (Neptune-Sun conjunction). You may feel the itch and motivation to expand the scope of your expertise. What’s needed now is to identify the practical and actionable steps that would lead you to the greatest growth in community outreach, social media followers, audience base, and orient the development of your expertise towards it. Such as gaining culinary expertise to gain a wider audience base for your travel blog.


Gemini Ascendant/Sun/Moon (Venus-Saturn in 10th):

You've been dreaming big and now refining the scope in your public reputation and career sector. There are transpersonal bigger-than-life dreams that have been transmitted to your consciousness (Neptune-Sun conjunction). You may feel the itch and motivation to expand the scope of your social status and how you are recognized. What’s needed now is to identify the practical and actionable steps that would lead you to the greatest growth in public and community service. You may be put in a situation that requires you to embody the altruistic public servant and manifest your soul mission, in order to receive rise in social and professional recognition.


Taurus Ascendant/Sun/Moon (Venus-Saturn in 11th):

You've been dreaming big and now refining the scope in your social networking and community presence. There are transpersonal bigger-than-life dreams that have been transmitted to your consciousness (Neptune-Sun conjunction). You may feel the itch and motivation to expand your social network and influence, even start your own social group. What’s needed now is to identify the practical and actionable steps that would allow you to expand in connections that resonate with your personal identity the most, and can even allow you to grow in personal mastery. i.e. If your natal Venus is in the 2nd house, and you are considering either starting a board game group or a personal finance support group, do the second because your natal Venus sits in 2nd and it rules your personal mastery.


Aries Ascendant/Sun/Moon (Venus-Saturn in 12th):

You've been dreaming big and now refining the scope in your purpose in life and motivations for life. There are transpersonal bigger-than-life dreams that have been transmitted to your consciousness (Neptune-Sun conjunction).

What’s needed now is to identify the practical and actionable steps that would lead you to the greatest gain in practical knowledge that helps to anchor you, so that you can better and more effectively springboard your avatar into the world.

Pisces have been trying to find themselves for a long time with Neptune transiting, so this is a great time to "choose an avatar" and just stick with it so you can start playing the game.


Aquarius Ascendant/Sun/Moon (Venus-Saturn in 2nd):

You've been dreaming big and now refining the scope in your personal finance sector. There are transpersonal bigger-than-life dreams that have been transmitted to your consciousness (Neptune-Sun conjunction).

Capricorn Ascendant/Sun/Moon (Venus-Saturn in 3rd):

You've been dreaming big and now refining the scope in your communications sector. There are transpersonal bigger-than-life dreams that have been transmitted to your consciousness (Neptune-Sun conjunction). You may feel the itch and motivation to expand in certain practical knowledge that helps you broadcast your messages. What’s needed now is to identify the practical and actionable steps that would lead you to the greatest growth in creative expressions and showcasing your personal talents, then orient your motivations toward it. As you wonder about the right learning opportunity to take, take the one that allows you to showcase your natural talents, and not a subject that give you no spark.


Sagittarius Ascendant/Sun/Moon (Venus-Saturn in 4th):

You've been dreaming big and now refining the scope of your emotional security and on the home front.

What’s needed now is to identify the practical and actionable steps that would lead you to the greatest growth in health and workplace routines, then orient your motivations toward it. You may have felt the fantasies spin when it comes to your family and/or home renovations, in that case, modify the scope so that it is practical and gives you the most healthful benefits and effective routines.


Scorpio Ascendant/Sun/Moon (Venus-Saturn in 5th):

You've been dreaming big and now refining the scope in your personal creative expressions sector. There are transpersonal bigger-than-life dreams that have been transmitted to your consciousness (Neptune-Sun conjunction). You may feel the itch and motivation to utilize your personal talents in a greater way. What’s needed now is to identify the practical and actionable steps that would lead you to the greatest expansion in beneficial partnerships, then tailor the expressions of your natural talents toward attracting those partnerships. Accentuate your talents that would most likely garner the attention of prospective partners, much like attracting a mate.


These energies are valid through the astrological new year (until the next Sun ingress into Aries in 2025). We should begin to see its affects around 5/23/2024, when Venus conjuncts Jupiter, and we'll analyze that chart then.


 

Lastly, seeing that Chiron has been really active this year, there might be a lot of gunk pushing through to our consciousness that make us go into an usual amount of negative self-talk. So in the spirit of self-compassion, let's tap on that together with one of my favorite EFT Tapping experts, Brad Yates:



And here's a classic tapping video for remembering that you belong:


Remember your greatness. Namaste❤️
