Expect problems as a Libra Lunation in the 7th house will often bring open enemies (gov't and foreign) into the environment, probably having to do with finances, as the Moon opposes Venus just prior to reaching full.   Take precautions with your money to avoid theft, the more it is under your control, the safer will you be.

The closest applying aspect is Moon opposition Uranus in Aries in the 1st house.  We will hear of earthquakes, tornadoes, volcanoes, airplane crashes and/or severe changes in weather conditions. Americans will be in a mutinous frame of mind, outraged over their loss of freedom, their way of life, and their descent into poverty. 

Moon opposing an Aries Mars in the 2nd house bolsters the previous statement...people are losing their tolerance.  Allowing emotions to rule is a mistake.  Rather than acting out feelings under this planetary influence - that will later be regretted - visit a gym to work out the Mars aggression or get out in the garden and expend your energies where it will serve you better.

Leave it to a retrograde Mercury, I never noticed a second Yod pattern on the chart until now.  This one has Saturn in Scorpio in the 8th house as the Apex planet, inconjunct Mars/Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Gemini.  Translated, a configuration of Karma, of self-preservation and the requirement of inner maturity regarding readiness to approach this turning-point, this special forked road in life.  Reminds me of Yogi Berra's famous line:  "When you come to a fork in the road, take it." 

In the planetary family of thoughts, Saturn represents the Safety factor, the negative expressions being anxiety, uncertainty, fear.  So we need to avoid self-defeating attitudes that are reinforced by harsh outer conditions and to flow with the corrective nature of the inconjunct and Saturn's natural drive to overcome obstacles, for this is a testing Yod.  

Posited in both a prophetic sign and a prophetic house Saturn's position is an urgent message for Americans to cease relying upon personal power, to place their focus on disengaging from pride and selfishness...for those are the shackles that bind souls to matter, mortality and fate.  It is past time to put your spiritual house in order.

The Vernal Equinox is the exact moment of the ingress of the Sun into Aries...the commencement of the astrological year.  A map of the Heavens is drawn for the moment of ingress at the seat of government of a nation.  The figure for the Vernal Equinox always bears chief rule for the ensuing year and while the succeeding ingresses into the other cardinal points have also a pre-signification, they are subsidiary to the first-named.

The following interpretation is for the chart cast for Washington, D.C., depicting situations to be faced by the population of the USA.

A First house Aries Sun suggests birth, new beginnings, involuntary action taken by citizens in the hopes of bringing changes, with the possibility of rashness.

The most outstanding activity is that eight planetary bodies are on the East side of the chart, four of them in the First house, indicating that the public will be taking the initiative for this astrological year...and it won't be pretty...with Mars conjoined Uranus in Aries square a 10th house Pluto...the people versus a coercive, degenerate government.

A Fourth house Moon in Cancer is opposed by Pluto and aligned with Mars/Uranus, forming a Cardinal T-Square, the empty leg where the action will manifest being the 7th house of open enemies.  The Moon and the First house rule the people and when Pluto/gov't (federal and state) pushes the people against the proverbial wall, the people are going to come out swinging.

The house that Uranus is transiting (1st) represents an area where we are starting to face a certain kind of oppression.  Uranus is a key trigger to war; it symbolizes fanatics, terrorists and revolutionaries.  The weapons of choice of Uranus are a gun and the other will not be mentioned to protect innocent patriots.  Two of the weapons of Mars are knives and arrows...think crossbow.

Jupiter in Third house Gemini is the Apex of a Yod - The Finger of God...inconjunct both Saturn in Scorpio in the Eighth house and Pluto in Capricorn, which are sextile one another.  Third house matters are to the fore, such as transportation (land, river, sea), communication (internet, telephone system, post office), and the media.  Jupiter in freedom-loving Gemini as Apex planet suggests feeling out of tune with social laws, belief systems, and moral codes, yet expected to abide by them.  The time has arrived to make intellectual adjustments, to develop an ideal social pattern so as to redirect mass consciousness.  Inspiration is needed so as to aid others to become more effectively aligned with the needs of their inner spirit.

Delivery systems - including JIT deliveries - are a Third house matter, coming under the rulership of the Moon.  With Gemini on the cusp and Jupiter therein posited, we have rulerships as follows:
Third house...Moon...Mercury...Jupiter.  Not only is Jupiter stressed as the Apex of a Yod, it is also square Twelfth house Mercury.  The Moon is sorely afflicted as above mentioned and Mercury in Pisces is in its detriment, where it is incapacitated, unable to act.  This is a heavily afflicted Third house.  Consequently, it is imperative that you stock up on necessary items, such as medicine, medical supplies, food, clothing for different seasons, and any other item that you may need down the line that will not be available when you need it.  As the Yod planets are close in degrees I would not procrastinate.

Given a day or two before or after, expect upheaval for the nation's people on March 27, 28, 29, 2013 as the Sun progresses to conjoin Mars and Uranus...for weather and JIT deliveries on March 28th, when the Sun progresses to square the Fourth house Moon...that will snowball on March 31st, as the Sun progresses to sextile Jupiter, triggering the YOD, bringing all Third house matters to conditions of trial:  atmospheric conditions, transportation by land, river, and (internet, telephone system, post office, radio, television) and local traffic conditions.

The time for which we have prepared is upon us. 

“This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor...Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest honorably. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”
