Winding Down Confrontation — March 16-23 2022


As the many global situations develop this week, the full Moon on Friday brings the elements of the issues into focus. There could then be an opportunity to resolve many of the details. The Moon in Virgo makes opposition aspect to each of the stellium planets in Pisces, then, at the full Moon, a trine aspect to Pluto in Capricorn. As each step of the process unfolds, the work done as needed, the cooperation is achieved and a renewal can begin. The Moon ingress to Libra on Friday, as Venus approaches the square aspect with Uranus. Venus can tone-down the destructive instincts, as a peaceful resolution is sought. The Moon trine aspect to Venus on Saturday, brings rewards, possibly a shift in Putin’s objectives as well, as the Moon transits his natal stellium in Libra, and Saturn trine aspect to his natal Neptune position. The Sun makes a sextile to Pluto on Saturday, before the Moon ingress to Scorpio on Sunday, indicating a shift in core motivations.  The Sun ingress to Aries on Monday as a seasonal shift awakens dormant energies.
