Sandra’s Celestial Compass for the Week of March 10, 2014
This is your week to learn to be spirit led through your earthly experiences.
Mercury in Aquarius is active with two major angles, on to Saturn giving rise to caution and a necessity to use forethought and an angle to Mars manifesting positive flowing rays as the week concludes with the Full Moon in Virgo. Midweek, Saturn and the Sun provide fortification that may be applied to anything you want to build upon. The Sun in Pisces and Saturn in Scorpio harmonize to help you to build your strength and both in the water element gives flexibility in a creative way so that you have options and choices along the way. Both planets also harmonize with the Virgo Full Moon to further enhance energy of growth and substance.
Mars is retrograde in Libra allowing time to regroup and gather vital energy that is right now accumulative if you make an effort. It is a time to contemplate how you expend your vitality and the why of your choices. Through communication you learn where there are blocks and a flow with others that if you make use of that knowledge with realigning and reforming your relationships and group energy, you will have better balance and refined interactions. See, learn and apply the lessons within the complexities.
The Virgo Full Moon sits between the two New Moons occurring this month that increase awareness of more subtle influences shifting realities of both the tangible and spiritual world. The bright shining light growing toward its peak on Sunday is a beacon directing each to see the duality of living in both the world of the physical and that of spirit and soul.

Moon in Cancer
Expansion and harmony are keys of the Moon conjunct Jupiter at 6:38 AM. This is a nice time to make headway and connect with others who are more likely to be warm and receptive. Seize the moment and roll with it.
Rethink getting involved in fights until the Moon square Uranus has passed at 8:06 AM. This disruptive energy causes upsets, breaks and abrupt outbursts that all adds up to unpredictability. Anything can fall into disarray.
Something can stand in the way preventing you from moving ahead at 12:17 PM while the Moon opposes Pluto. This is an intense ray that could even bring out pushiness in someone or compulsive behavior.
Tuesday, March 11, 2-14
Moon in Cancer/Leo
Mercury square Saturn at 2:15 AM causes pessimism and a lackluster attitude. Communication is slowed or even interrupted and travel or travel plans are also slowed. Interactions may bring criticism or complaints that are probably as much about personal frustration as any issue at hand. Agreements easily fall through so it is best to wait to sign contracts or negotiate.
The Moon and Sun trine at 3:12 AM is excellent as it is about bolstering your spirit and helping you to fulfill a goal. It is easy to be accomplished and have positive agreements with others. Connections are solid and forthright. You are likely to be rewarded for your efforts.
A nice building block to sustain you is the Moon trine Saturn at 8:30 AM. This offers stability and confidence that what is done can carry on and be lasting. It is somewhat pragmatic though very workable.
Slight disruption or an unsettled feeling occurs when the Moon square Mars peaks at 3:52 PM. Actions are stopped temporarily that could be anything from someone disagreeing to machinery breaking.
The Moon in Leo cycle begins at 10:10 PM and lasts until Friday. You are more on the spot and in the spotlight as the rays shine directly on you making others see you clearly. It is your time to make yourself reflect in the best way possible and in the way you want to be seen by others. You also have more interest in gratification and socializing.
Wednesday, March 12, 2014
Moon in Leo
As the Moon opposite Venus peaks at 9:58 AM hold off on expecting too much from anyone such as a friend or in a social group. Things are not in balance or are out of order in a way that prevents openness or positive responses. The energy prods and pulls at feelings that can lead to turmoil. Let things slide where possible.
A brighter, more energetic time is 9:01 PM when the Moon and Uranus trine. This is an electric ray that provides excitement and enthusiasm. You may be interested in trying new things or being spontaneous that should work out okay.
Thursday, March 13, 2014
Moon in Leo
The Sun trine Saturn at 5:16 PM brings a grounding effect that instills added strength and reliability where you need a stable atmosphere and reliability. It is ideal to build on what you already have going and in place. What is begun under this influence has a good chance of lasting and being well rounded. There is a practical element about what happens.
At 8:49 PM the Moon square Saturn sullies the environment with negativity. People are either sad and pessimistic or unwilling to cooperate. Attitudes or a delay is in the way of moving forward. Plan around this time for best results and to be able to continue with what you are doing.
Friday, March 14, 2014
Moon in Leo/Virgo
Conflicting views and opinions result from the Moon opposite Mercury at 2:28 AM. What is said and done may be opposite to each other. This contradictory ray leaves everything unsettled so avoid trying to manage, smooth or work on anything until it is over.
Extra energy is with you at 3:25 AM due to the sextile of the Moon and Mars elevating your spirit by the fire and air elements. It is easy to get into the spirit of what is happening and move ahead.
During the Moon in Virgo transit beginning at 10:18 AM until next Monday you feel the expanding tides and sense of duty and responsibility that it brings in. There is also added interest in health and setting goals to better life and choices in that area and also through work. It is a time when taking care of duty is important.
Mercury trine Mars at 12:17 PM is great for making decisions and acting on them. You feel the energy through your thoughts as ideas seem especially interesting and you are more enthused to get them going. This can help you make your mark.
Confusion or doubt rolls in like a thick fog at 9:42 PM through the Moon opposite Neptune. It is easy to get facts wrong or even be deceived so listen carefully and pay attention to what is happening.

Moon in Virgo
Pleasant rays emit from the sextile of the Moon and Jupiter at 7:08 AM providing opportunity to successfully accomplish whatever you want to do. This pleasant energy brings in a nice flowing vibration that is harmonious and favors you.
Also favorable is the 12:33 PM trine between the Moon and Pluto that lends a positive force to your actions. This provides strength to carry on and follow through. It is fortifying and helps you to be confident.
Sunday, March 16, 2014
Moon in Virgo/Libra
Heading toward the lunar peak, Saturn in sextile to the Moon at 7:37 AM brings in strength and a nice foundation that is strong and reliable. You can forge ahead and get a lot done. Lay your groundwork and build your fortress.
The Full Moon in Virgo at 1:09 PM brings conclusions to the energy began March 1 when the Moon was new in Pisces. From the fanciful and ethereal rays then to the now earthy Virgo you put into place what you want to manifest. This is a peak time and one that is folding in afterward so be finished with everything before now. As the peak transpires also bring to a peak your efforts. Following is the lunar cycle for two weeks when the light lessens and energy diminishes. Honor your efforts and have in place a plan for good health and a routine for work and daily living.
From earthy reliable Virgo the Moon enters Libra at 8:46 PM where it travels until Wednesday of next week. This reminds you of all areas that need to be refined and brought into better balance. Avoid the Libra scales of judgment and move toward seeking harmony.
For the Week
Connect; strive; realign; know; perceive; blend; organize; peace
I realize that I am a dual spirit living a multidimensional life, always integrating body, mind and spirit to evolve.
Walking forward into the rising moonlight I feel the supporting spirit of the Sun on my back that makes me both warm and secure in faith and also free to take steps in this lifetime toward my goals.
Colors & Stones:
Amber; amazonite; blue topaz; blue sapphire; sardonyx
Oils & Herbs:
Corn flower; white lily; mandarin; basil; chamomile; sandalwood
The opposite energies of Pisces, the current place of the transiting Sun and the Virgo Full Moon on Sunday creates a week of diversity, duality and one about learning to walk in two worlds simultaneously. Taking care of the business of living is certainly a Virgo vibration that brings into action everything from managing personal tasks to work and everything about your tangible worldly existence. Virgo is of the earth element and holds each to a multitude of responsibilities of living in this dimension. Certainly this lunar peak has you busier as you strive to gain order and maintain your life overall. Pisces is watery and mystical governing the realm of spirit and the unseen dimensions. It is the manifestation of how you relate spiritually and how you express your spiritual nature. Both signs are about service yet each is the opposite in that Virgo is serving humanity through taking care of others as nursing, teaching groups and one by one, a day at a time keeping all work going, with Pisces energy serving through commitment as a priest would choose to give of the self, to become selfless for a belief or cause. Mercury in the mix of celestial events, while the Moon is growing full, keeps your mind busy, deciding, deciphering and working on how to express both those aspects of your life. Realization that you are a multifold being is a key to working successfully with this rather than seeing yourself as diverse or that you are separated. The power of the Pisces Sun brings you closer to your beliefs and understanding of spirituality while Virgo paves the road for you to function on this plane successfully as a whole spirit. There is a purity of spirit in both signs as each sign has a higher and lower octave that expressed through Virgo and Pisces is about a genuine desire to serve humanity. As you discover your true feelings about where you have compassion you then are in touch with yourself and that higher principle.
