Interview with Author/Illustrator Donna McGarry

"Donna captures the spirit of the zodiac signs with wit, delightfully original illustrations, and keen insights. This entire series is a fabulous way to introduce someone of any age to the magic of astrology."

The Curse of Dead Horse Canyon: Cheyenne Spirits

An Epic Cross-Cultural Novel by Marcha Fox and Pete Risingsun

Review of Steven Forrest's "The Book Of Neptune"

"If you feel as if you've lost your footing, are sinking in quicksand or adrift on a large body of water with no land in sight, there's a good chance that Neptune is involved.  If that's the case, I can't recommend this book highly enough." --Whobeda

Natural House: 10th Natural House: 5th
Influences of the 10th house include your career, status, public image, and reputation.  "Status" includes anything in the public record as well as honors, titles, distinctions (both positive and negative) or even things as simple as what you might post to Facebook. This could bring a new career opportunity or attention to your accomplishments. It's a favorable time to promote your interests or enhance your public image. Influences of the 5th house include your ego definition, creativity, children, romance, entertainment and speculation.  It's sometimes referred to as the "fun house" since most of what resides here is pleasant. A Full Moon in this house could indicate the completion of something in its domain, such as a creative endeavor or doing something fun you've been planning for a while, such as a vacation. Children may pass a milestone or a romance may end or shift to a higher level, i.e. a committed relationship, which is a 7th house matter.  

This month's New Moon is in Pisces. I try to look on the bright side of these lunations, thus sometimes I manage to miss rather ominous indicators. Of course it also depends on how the lunation and its entourage of planets interacts with your chart. Nonetheless, last month brought catastrophic events to my part of the world when a strong system of lethal winter weather attacked my state, which was exacerbated by power outages. This clearly related to that ongoing and rather obnoxious square between Saturn and Uranus where Saturn relates to infrastructure, structures, and difficult times, while Uranus relates to technology, power, and unexpected events. Two weeks later I'm still without hot running water because the hard freeze with temperatures down to 1 degree F ruptured pipes in my tankless water heater. That may not sound like very cold to some of you, but here in Texas the usual winter temperatures usually are in the 40 - 60 degree F range. Plunges into the twenties and high teens occur, but not every year and seldom last more than a day or two. This blast delivered low teens at some time each day for a week. Most parts of the state do not have snow removal equipment because it's so rarely needed. Thus, the snow had us on lockdown for days, which included deliveries of all kinds. Actually, I was one of the lucky ones. At least the damage was outside, whereas I have neighbors who had ruptured pipes indoors which flooded their entire house. It was bad.

And this hateful aspect is still out there. As one person so eloquently expressed it, "2020 was hell and in 2021 hell froze over."

So if things suck for you, this is probably the cause. And for this lunation, that !@#$%^&*~+) aspect remains. Furthermore, Mars is starting to trine Saturn as well from Gemini. This placement implies mental action, perhaps assessing the damage and what to do about it. Pluto and Mercury are in partile semisextile, which suggests an annoyance or friction based on either too much or the lack of control over situations. Jupiter and Venus in Pisces are in similar aspect, suggesting strong interference with your comfort level and perhaps finances. Neptune is conjunct Venus and also tied in with Jupiter, which certainly fits the water element in these parts. And the latter two are conjunct the lunation which hints at visualizing better times to come.

Fortunately, this hard aspect doesn't happen very often. The last time it occurred was in the 1999-2000 timeframe, and before that from 1975 - 1977. Wikipedia has summaries of historical events for each of those years that you might want to check out for events similar to the "hell froze over" year.

When will it end? Not soon enough. It goes away in August this year BUT that bad boy will be back due to retrograde motion come December 2021 through February 2022.

I suppose it's in my job description to offer some advice on how to use this horribly obnoxious energy in a positive manner. Needless to say, sometimes stuff like this blindsides you and all you can do is react. Maybe you're prepared and maybe you're not. If so, there are usually still some lessons learned from the experience. For example, using my situation with the decimated water heater, the new one will be installed indoors where it will be protected from any subsequent deep freezes. I will also stock more firewood, realizing that power cannot be taken for granted, either. Fortunately, I had enough to get by, but if the cold and power outage had lasted much longer, it would have been a serious problem. I highly recommend, assuming you have the option, to have a natural gas or propane stove, since they work without power; you just have to light them with a match, so stock them, too. If nothing else, a propane BBQ is a good investment, even if you have to bundle up to use it. Use your misery as a motivator to assure you don't get caught in a similar situation again. My son bought a generator after spending three days without power in freezing weather. Fortunately, he has a natural gas fireplace that helped some. Learn from the experiences of others, too. In fact, even as I was writing this the power went off unexpectedly, reminding me I should put a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) on my wish list.

Are you trying to break away from something, yet are finding persistent resistance? A bad habit? Debt? A job you hate? Bucking Saturn is difficult, but not impossible. Uranus is in Taurus, the most determine and patient of signs. He rules innovation, technology, freedom, rebellion, electricity, sudden change, disruptions, and disturbances. (Sound familiar?) Use something related to that energy in your favor.

I apologize on behalf of the cosmos. Believe me, if I could change it, I would. Meanwhile I'm just looking forward to a warm shower, hopefully within the next day or two. :-(


The Full Moon on 28 March in Libra highlights a triple partile conjunction involving the Sun, Chiron, and Venus opposite the Moon in Aries.  The first thing that comes to mind with this one is to work with your partner in dealing with these various crises. The lunation forms a triangle of potential with Saturn, suggesting sharing responsibilities can help. Don't make any situation worse by being grumpy and obnoxious toward those who love you. Par for the course, Uranus is semisextile this trio, suggesting irritability and frustration. Chiron, in particular, relates to wounds, hurts, and disappointments of all kinds, whether physical, mental, or emotional. This is another one I can relate to. Uranus has been messing with me for a long time, bringing a sense of futile rebellion against things I cannot change much less control, resulting in an increase in nervous energy and distractions, and needless to say, sky-rocketing blood pressure.  The Moon is connecting with with Saturn, the Sun (of course), Chiron, Venus, and Uranus, somewhat mediating that nasty square. Being in Libra indicates fairness and balance. The fact she facilitates a course adjustment loop a.k.a. learning triangle, is another message that if something isn't working, then a change of course is required before things can go smoothly. Rather than feeling trapped, so your best to figure out what will help you deal with the situation even if you can't change it.


You may have noticed that this month there are no retrograde planets! This will last until toward the end of April, when Pluto stations retrograde.  Is this a good thing? Consider that this occurred last year between March - April, which isn't exactly a stellar example for good times since that is when all that COVID-19 crap hit the fan. When the planets are all direct, their energy is fully expressed as opposed to internalized. This cuts both ways, needless to say, depending on their placement and aspects. Good or bad? You decide.

Another event worth noting this month on 20 March is the Aries Ingress, which marks the equinox, i.e. the vernal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and autumnal equinox in the Southern. In case you aren't aware, when the Sun goes into the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) it marks the beginning of a new season. The chart for this event tends to color the season that follows and is used for weather prediction as well as mundane and geo-political astrology. When the Sun is in Aries things tend to liven up. You can see this in nature, which begins to wake up after its long winter sleep, at least in the Northern Hemisphere. Aries wields a lot of fiery energy which can be aggressive and destructive. Many mass shootings occur in this month as well as extreme weather, such as tornadoes in some parts of the world. On a more positive level, it inspires spring cleaning or perhaps getting outside more.

Looking at the ingress chart for some specifics, naturally that obnoxious square between Saturn and Uranus remains. Use that Aries energy to deal with it as constructively as possible. Pluto and Venus are sextile, suggesting transformational opportunities relative to deepening a relationship or perhaps taking control of your finances or other needs. The Moon trining Jupiter and squaring Neptune suggests confusion or not understanding what's going on around you. That's certainly a target-rich environment these days. Mars trining Saturn implies taking action on your responsibilities but being prepared for some arguments, differences of opinion, or conflicts in how you see the problem. Being open-minded and thinking outside the box can help here. Mars in Gemini will help you think pro-actively and take action on those things that should not be procrastinated.

Meanwhile, buckle up. Hell froze over this year and there's no telling what that presages.
