Happy Monday, and welcome to the start of a brand new week. The Sun moves into Gate 17 on March 25th, and will stay there until the 29th, and this week, as with many, timing is everything.


This week is all about Gate 17. If you have Gate 17 defined (colored in) in your chart, you will notice this transit within yourself, if you don’t have Gate 17 defined then you will mostly notice this energy within your interactions. Either way, you will have access to it and will have the opportunity to take advantage of this transit. Click here to get your chart, if you haven’t already done so.

Gate 17 hold the energy of curiosity, which should not be mistaken for certainty. It’s an energy that comes up with ideas and opinions, but that doesn’t always they’re right for you or correct. These ideas and opinions need to be put to the test before it’s decided they are correct or true.

The challenge with this energy is resisting the urge to blurt out things as they come to mind. This is where it’s all about timing, also being invited. It’s best to be called on to share the workings of Gate 17, or your ideas and opinions will be ignored. Remember, Mercury is still Retrograde this week and we need to pay extra attention to our communication.

The high vibe energy Gate 17 is watching all these ideas bounce around your head. With enough experimenting, you will refine your concept and unlock new possibilities.


The always curious and full of new ideas Page of Swords embodies the energy of Gate 17. So ready to jump on the next idea, she first needs to wait for the correct timing.

As the Sun transits, there are ideal days each week to do certain things. Here’s how they fall this week:

MONDAY: Today is for planning your week ahead. It’s an ideal day to make sure you have everything you need in your schedule, send confirmations for upcoming meetings, meal prep, write your weekly to-do list and set your intentions for the next few days. To get you started, I’ve included some thought provoking journal prompts to get you thinking about how to maximize this transit.


  • Do you get the irresistible urge to share your opinions?

  • Are there people in your circle who do this?

  • How is this usually received?

  • How does it go when you / they wait for it to be recognized?

TUESDAY: Today is a day where you may get noticed and called out. Think of the 2nd line Hermit on the Hexagram - she stays secluded in her little cave until someone notices her and calls her out, and at that time she is engaged with the world around her. A great day to stay put until a friend asks you for coffee, also not the best day to approach your boss about a desired promotion.

WEDNESDAY: Today is a day of running into things, things catching you by surprise.  It could be good or bad, such as getting unexpected news or bumping into an old friend that you’re happy to see. Can you get unexpected news on other days of the week? Of course, but today is the day when that energy is the most heightened. As far as the types go, (non-emotional) Projectors and Generators thrive on days like today and yesterday, because the energy is in their favor to receive invitations and have something to respond to.

THURSDAY: Today is a day of completion via action. It could be low vibe or high vibe, such as someone getting fired or someone closing escrow and getting the keys to their new home. It doesn’t have to be that big, it can even mean finally going to your cable provider to cancel your service since you only watch Netflix anyhow. Since this is considered a transpersonal day, it’s a day where people are more likely to be friendly. Save your outside errands (especially shopping, this is the best shopping day of the week) for today and you will face them with more ease. Today, tomorrow and the day after that are going to be the best days for non-emotionally defined Manifestors and Manifesting Generators.

FRIDAY: Today’s theme is practicality. Yesterday was the best shopping day of the week, but today is when you want to do your practical shopping like buying groceries or bringing your car for an oil change. People are more likely to notice and judge one another today, and reputations can be at stake. For example, if you’re going to be late for work today for whatever reason, your boss may be quick to judge you as unreliable ... even if it was outside of your control. On the flip side of that, today can really be your day to shine. Important meetings and presentations should be saved for today, the energy to impress your audience will be in your favor. Now is also the time to ask your boss for that promotion :)

SATURDAY: Today is the last day of the transit week, and therefore the day to relax in the way that’s best for you. If you’re pre Saturn Return however, today may be a day to do something wild. If you’re a parent, know that today your little one may be extra rambunctious. Regardless of where you’re at, today will be a day to reflect. Below I’ve got some journal prompts to get you started.


  • How can you have fun these ideas and opinions without feeling the urge to share unprovoked?

  • Have you noticed these thoughts to be more valued when you shared only when asked?

  • How did you notice this energy being expressed around you this week?

  • How did those interactions go?

Until next time,
