Sun square Saturn this upcoming St. Patrick’s Day March 17th, 2017

This is probably one of the shortest articles that you will ever read from me and I suppose that it’s more like a special bulletin of sorts.

The Sun in late Pisces (26 degrees) will be squaring a Saturn in Sagittarius (also 26 degrees) this coming St. Patrick’s day on Friday March 17th. Although the aspect is exact at 4:48pm CDT our time, it will still be within a tight separating orb throughout the evening and night. If you are located in the U.K. and Europe then the timing will be more or less right on the money. I highly recommend that you plan that day out strategically if you are going to be drinking outside of the home.

If any of your personal planets or points are within the hotspot of 23 to 29 degrees of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces), especially the Sun, Moon, Ascendant and Midheaven (MC) then my advice is to take extra special precautions during this time. For example, I myself not be driving around on that evening…

This is not to create fear or anything like that, it simply is all about situational awareness and acknowledging the danger of a perfect storm of a holiday where there is a lot of drinking that is encouraged. The planets involved are in the signs of Jupiter (and in the constellations to boot, a.k.a. the sidereal signs). Sag and Pisces tend to overdo it on the booze anyway and so the symbolism is there. Sun square Saturn represents a clash with the authorities. My prediction is that there will be more than the usual St. Patrick’s Day DWI arrests this year in the U.S. and abroad.

Thanks everyone and have a great rest of the week!
