The Astro-Weather Report for the Week Ahead: March 17 – 23, 2012 – Atlanta Astrology

Last week, right on cue, we woke up to nothing but good news on the morning news: Unemployment is down, stocks are up, skies are blue and there is unseasonably warm weather all across the country. In Atlanta the Dogwoods and Azaleas were blooming, the birds were singing and everybody had a smile on their face. As an astrologer friend said: “I feel like I just got dropped into a Disney movie”.  (For astrology in Atlanta)

For most of the week ahead the world is still under the influence of last week’s Venus/Jupiter conjunction (read Astro-weather March 11- 17), so there will be a continuation of the harmonious environments, joyous attitudes and feelings of abundance that will inspire laughter and happiness for several more days.

Venus and Jupiter will be shining brightly together in the evening sky through the Spring Equinox. And since the Spring Equinox marks the birth of a new zodical year (3/20/2012-3/20/2013), Jupiter/Venus could be active for the entire year.

If used wisely, this benefic duo has the potential to bring continued good fortune during the entire year. One caveat to take into consideration: Every astrological configuration has both a positive and a negative expression. It is entirely possible that Venus and Jupiter could become too much of a good thing. Best to guard that the good feelings of abundance do not lead to complacency, laziness and/or self indulgent behaviors. Additionally, this is even more likely because Taurus might add some resistance and inertia that must be overcome.

Spring Equinox and the Aries New Moon

For the second year in a row we have Uranus conjunct the Sun at the Spring Equinox, but this year Mercury Rx is also there. Plus, the Aries New Moon falls just after (March 22). Aries and the New Moon both symbolize beginnings, but this Aries New Moon lunar event – with Mars (the ruler of Aries and this New Moon) and Mercury both retrograde – seems to be saying something about erratic beginnings.

It’s not really a great time to start something new. So how should you use this initiatory energy? Well, it looks to be good time to begin thinking outside the box on just how you can reposition or redirect something that you’ve already begun.

Yes, during the week-ahead you will still be in the midst of some revolutionary behavior and thinking…both your own and that of others. So, don’t let yourself become a target. And while expressing yourself be careful of your own words, because Uranus with Mercury in Aries can produce some very unusual rants that just might lead to unintended consequences.

You’ll likely feel challenged to “just do it” or “say it” during this Aries New Moon, but keep in mind that rushing can lead to rash behavior and hurtful words, and that’s a sure-fire prescription for stress and accidents.

Note: These are the major astrological trends influencing everyone’s life over the next week. They are not specific to your particular natal chart, and the real story for you, is how these general trends will affect YOUR chart.
