In this new episode of Planet Waves TV [play video here], Eric explores the intriguing astrology around this year’s Libra Full Moon, which happens right after the Aries equinox. This involves some powerful alignments with Chiron, Salacia and Pholus.
When everyone around you is wounded and hurting, if you initiate and pursue your own healing it will probably make you stand out. I suspect countless people have had this thought before, but it came to mind as I was thinking about tomorrow’s conjunction of the Sun and Chiron in Aries. I don’t know how many people think of that possibility consciously before starting (for example) a therapy process; even if present unconsciously, however, I imagine it holds some people back.

Sun conjunct Chiron occurs at 2:38 pm EDT Friday (18:37:51 UTC).
And although it’s not in the very first degree of Aries, it is in the second degree, which is still Aries Point territory (the nexus of personal and political).
Whatever tomorrow’s astrology describes for you personally, it will likely resonate with issues that are prominent in our collective social environment right now.
This is the first conjunction of the Sun and Chiron in Aries since Chiron left Pisces for good on Feb. 18. As far as I can tell, it is the only conjunction these two bodies will have in the first five degrees of Aries for this particular journey of Chiron in Aries (though next year will come close; that one happens in the sixth degree of Aries).
My guess is that this means this year’s Sun-Chiron conjunction may ring the personal/collective Aries Point bell the loudest — though I don’t know for certain if it works that way. And who knows: maybe we will be able to hear the signal better once we’ve all gotten more used to this energy next year? After all, we’re also adjusting to Uranus in Taurus and wading through Mercury’s retrograde in Pisces, both of which seem to be having a slightly destabilizing effect on many people. Then again, when is there not something in the astrology describing things being off-kilter, or provocative, or confrontational, or energizing in some way?
This week is the equinox: when the Sun enters Aries and spring begins in the Northern Hemisphere. That takes place Wednesday, March 20 at 5:58 pm EDT). Moments after the Sun enters Aries is the Libra Full Moon, making this an unusual equinox with quite a lot of momentum carrying both the energy and resulting events.

Over the next few days you may start to feel like you’re a magnet for attention but that others focusing on you is the last thing you want. Humor these people along; humor yourself along. Attention won’t get in the way of your introspection.
Today at 5:58 pm EDT (21:58: 18 UTC), the Sun enters Aries for the equinox. This is the first day of northern hemisphere spring, the first day of the new astrological year, and one of two times in the year when all places on Earth receive equal daylight and night. Yet, this is no ordinary equinox. About three and a half hours after the Sun enters Aries, the Moon enters Libra. And then at 9:43 pm EDT tonight (1:42:45 UTC Thursday), the Moon and Sun oppose for the Libra Full Moon.
Something has shifted in your mental environment, and as a result, your perception of relationships. You may be under more stress about this than you’ve been aware of, then it surfaces, and then it fades into the background again. The current pressure seems like the urgent need to make a decision.
We’re one day away from the Sun’s entrance into Aries — also known as the equinox. This marks the end of the current astrological year and the beginning of a new one. And shortly after the Sun makes its move tomorrow, the Moon will oppose it for a Full Moon in Libra. So you may be noticing some energy build.
