Happy Spring Equinox! The match has been lit and the fire intensifies, as the upcoming eclipse pulls us forward.
The March 23rd Full Moon eclipse in Libra will occur on the same day as an exact square between Saturn in Sagittarius and Jupiter Rx in Virgo. Libra issues of balance/imbalance will be addressed, and Saturn's rules will focus Jupiter's big ideas on essential facts. Mars in Sagittarius will trine the Sun/Mercury conjunction in Aries, making courageous words and passionate declarations part of this eclipse.
Truths, ethical concerns and verbal confrontations may be ignited. If there's an area of your life where an imbalance needs to be corrected, this is the time to do it. You could also be confronted with the need to step up your game, regarding honesty or accountability. Competition and challenges can bring out your best, especially if you've been slacking off.
On March 24th and 26th, the trines between Mars/Mercury and the Sun/Mercury will perfect, respectively. On Mar 25th, Saturn will station Rx, and Venus in Pisces will oppose Jupiter and square Saturn.
