An Iron Fist In A Velvet Glove: Astrology Forecast March 27th – April 3rd

What to expect this week?

By Lorna Bevan | Guest Writer

With the Sun and now Mercury in Mars -ruled Aries territory, in the Year of the Tiger roaring down from the North East, volatility is the name of the game.

On Monday 28t, Venus conjuncts Lord of Time and Karma Saturn in Aquarius square the karmic Nodes of Fate effectively in a triple conjunction with Mars. This is a hard choices take-no-prisoners alignment.

On Friday April 1st the 4th month begins with the Aries New Moon sandwiched between Mercury and Chiron. Its only aspect is a semi-sextile to unpredictable Uranus in Taurus.

On the world stage, expect the both the verbal rhetoric and the physical warfare to amp up even further.

In your own life, this Chironic New Moon will push into your awareness any way it can any aspect of your existence you have neglected. Chiron in Aries acts as an initiatory archetype creating fresh new patterns of living. Going far beyond the clichéd “wounded healer” label, expect a shamanic process of self-discovery; the desire to reintegrate the spirit into the body; the start of recovery from addictions by healing the soul instead of the psychology; physical purification through a healthy lifestyle. In effect, a season of soul retrieval.

Ask yourself:

“Which early psychological bargains and soul compromises that I made to be loved and to be accepted have time expired?”

“Which of my repetitive patterns and futile struggles are dead in the water?”

An old woman hears the stars talking to her at night.

“Soul gifts from the morning of the world now turning into treasures untold. A quality of being, a presence, an aura which fills the world. You are the microcosm here and now for so many worlds. There is wonder and awe, discovery and an odd echo of fate. All of this has happened before; nothing is new. A twilight state. The repeated awakenings, and yet still dreaming on. Majestic vistas. So much to conceive. All exists inside. Yet in the secrecy of the heart, no clues are offered. All remains bare and stark.” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale.

Aries Weekly Forecast: March 27-April 3, 2022

With both the Sun and Mercury plus a New Moon in your own sign, how are you going to channel the huge surge of energy and momentum so you avoid burn out or overwhelm? The New Moon conjunct Chiron suggests it’s a good time to take an honest look at habits or behaviours that are sabotaging or undermining you. Once they’re out in the light of day, you can choose other options that are life enhancing rather than draining.

On Friday’s New Moon, begin a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual de-clutter.

Taurus Weekly Forecast: March 27-April 3, 2022

With so much fiery aggressive energy in the sign behind yours, you may be feeling unsettled as if something is about to happen just out of sight. Instead of becoming hyper-vigilant or stressed, take some time and space to reconnect with your body through grounding in any way that feels right for you. This is especially important since your own planet sensitive Venus meets Saturn this week bringing some sort of reality check. In the month before your birthday, your solar batteries run low and, as life is going to speed up very quickly in April, establish some workable self-care now before you need it.

Make yourself your top priority.

Gemini Weekly Forecast: March 27-April 3, 2022

Both the Sun and your own planet Mercury have now moved off the pinnacle of your chart into Aries, so some of the recent frenetic activity should taper off, much to your relief. That said, this is going to be a week of strong assertive energies, so take as much time out to de-stress, de-compress and catch up with yourself as you can. The world will continue to turn without you. As Venus meets Task Master Saturn in your 9th House, channel your efforts into expanding your thinking, your horizons and your perspective and do something practical to bring one project into being, instead of just talking about it.

Walking your talk.

Cancer Weekly Forecast: March 27-April 3, 2022

As Venus merges with Saturn, financial issues may come home to roost. If they do, deal with them immediately. Then Friday’s Aries New Moon starts a new cycle in your work life. If you have been making too many compromises or putting your ambitions on the back burner, ask yourself which old imprinting is still affecting you negatively today.

Healing unhelpful beliefs from the past.

Decision time.
