March Astrology 2018

Every month has its own feel and vibration and March begins with several planets in water and earth. Mix them together and they create mud. The key will be not to get stuck in a quagmire of duties and frustrations. This is a natural environment for creation, to begin to shape and mold your dreams into a form. The end of the month is mostly fire and earth, perfect for setting your form into the kiln. The full moon in Virgo March 1st opposite the Pisces Sun opens the windows to let service, compassion and empathy into our lives. The month ends with the full moon in Libra. The potential of the weeks in between is to embrace practical work and pragmatic solutions to problems with intuition, compassion and empathy that will lead us to have balance in our lives where we are free to be our authentic self and have harmonious relationships with others.

Virgo Full Moon 2018

The questions stirring within include “have we created the peace that is possible in our world within, an inner state of being of calm and centeredness? The Virgo full moon is connected once again with Neptune as was the previous eclipse was for a different reason. This is about connecting with your own spiritual path in whatever form that is. It includes a path of compassion, the path to be able to connect with something that is beyond this world. Something you can’t touch or put a earthly or monetary value on. What does unconditional love mean? Mercury and Venus are together the day of full moon which is very strong for friendship and communicating with kindness to those that you love. There is a perfect trine with Jupiter and Scorpio bring the possibility to go deep and really share with another.

Venus rises as a morning star on March 4th in Pisces with Chiron, a time of expressing and feeling unconditional love that transcends human judgment. As we move through the month several planetary shifts happen. On the 8th, Jupiter goes retrograde. Whenever a planet is retrograde or direct it has the most strength or power. It is a spotlight beaming down its vibration. Jupiter in Scorpio retrograde expands the intensity of feelings, increases the desire to connect with others in a deep way and to understand and know what is normally hidden. It also can be the revealing of secrets. You may see secrets exposed in the news. On a deep level, what is your own secret to be revealed?

By the time that Jupiter goes retrograde, the 8th, Mercury and Venus have moved into Aries, a fire sign. Time to fire up the kiln in your life, acting on your thoughts and going after what you want.

Venus is beginning to move very quickly through Aries, racing towards Taurus. This is her ascension period as the evening star. Take time to notice her after sunset in the western sky. Mercury is slowing down as Mercury will go retrograde this month.

Pisces New Moon 2018

The new moon on the 17th in Pisces, at 26 degrees of Pisces is vibrating with Uranus is at 26 degrees of Aries. This energy is powerful vibrating at the same degree yet the angle that they are connected with creates a feeling that something big is about to happen. Something big is about to explode, something big is about to change. You can’t quite know what it is, see what it is, but the essence of feeling that life is moving forward, that life is about to change, there’s an explosion ready to make itself known. Uranus energy can bring destruction and out of the chaos can come order. It is very possible to experience a shaking up of anything that has gotten too routine or comfortable. It happens in order for you to continue to grow and expand. Mars is at the very end of Sagittarius and soon after the new moon shifts into Capricorn where Saturn and Pluto is. Mars moving into Capricorn brings steadiness and ability to accomplish and follow through on plans and projects.

This is another emphasis that goes back to the January timeframe, the Capricorn new moon of putting your plan together, what is your plan? What is the path that may take some effort, some step by step by step, but you can make it happen. If you are willing to do the work the grounding energy will keep your vision moving forward step by step.

The sun going into Aries, marking the equinox, one of the four cardinal turning points. Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. The charts of these moments reveal information of what to expect ahead in the next 3 month. Mercury and Venus are still traveling together. Suggesting communications with those you love continue to create strong bonds of friendship. This month is an incredible month to reconnect with people and fortify friendships.

The moon will be in Taurus on the equinox and Mars in Capricorn, another earth sign. This is a precursor of the Taurus energy to come that is happening in May with Uranus going into Taurus. There is an awakening energy of beauty for nature to be grounded, to appreciate that which you can touch, that which you can see. There will be a shake up the material world. New beliefs about having and alternative methods of ownership begin to be more mainstream. Do I really need to own this? Do I really need to own that? What is ownership really? Honoring the Earth is also making main stream news through revealing where we have not taken care of the earth and the importance to honor Mother Earth if only for selfish reasons.

We finish the month with the full moon in Libra. Libra is about harmony, fairness, companionship and balance. The sun in Aries however is about the courage to be oneself no matter what others think or what they want you to be. The path of Aries is to lead headstrong in spite of the unknown and with conviction of doing what one feels they need to do no matter what. The purpose the full moon carries is to find the equilibrium in ones path while having peace and harmony as companions. It is not necessarily a battle between you and somebody else, but perhaps it is the battle within. Part of me wants this and part of me wants that. How do you find that center point from within? Saturn’s connected to this full moon energy, so there could be some seriousness, Saturn’s always serious about things. There will be a knowing that it is time to get serious about having the right balance in your life. A time to fight for what you want when you know is part of your soul’s path. Yet an inner knowing that it does not need to be a struggle, there is peace, harmony, fulfillment and balance when you travel you claim your souls journey.

Venus has just moved into Taurus, the day of the full moon and that is an awakening to beauty and reveals that beauty is everywhere, in the morning dew to the twilight stars.

March Astrology 2017

When I was a little girl there was a saying about March, if it come in like a lamb it will go out like a lion. This of course referred to the weather and living in the northeast of the USA the weather in March was always unpredictable.

Astrologically March is coming in like a Lion and the waves of the planetary upsets will calm down a bit by the end of the month but not completely. The first days of March covers the landscape with a mystical feeling that something is about to happen but not sure what with an underlying anticipation for huge shifts in life and love coupled and insightful understanding of how to change. (Sun with Neptune, Jupiter opposite Uranus, Mercury with Neptune and Venus moving retrograde!)

What makes the astro weather so unsteady in March is Venus retrograde in Aries. Venus in Aries is a bit of a wild card, impulsive and strong. She is reassessing if what she has in her life is what she still wants and needs. She will also recognize what is missing and be making plans on how to get it into her life.

March Full Moon

The full moon on the 12th reflects back to late February, issues that came up the last week in February that are still unresolved surface to let go or complete. The annual full moon of Virgo calls forth the urge to go beyond self-interest and help those around you, family, friends, and community. 

The spring equinox (or fall for down under) heralds in new hope and determination. A deep urge to protect what is yours and what is just will continue for the next several months. The Aries cycle is always a good omen to begin something anew, or even to return to something that you have always wanted to learn, do or master but set it aside. And with Venus half way through her retrograde cycle insights of what is of most value to you begins to surface.

The day of the new moon in Aries March 28th will stir strong words and action. Inspiration is powerful and the impulse to rule your own life and face any fears that are in the way of your path and destiny.  Along with the equinox are two potent planets Jupiter and Pluto planting a seed within urging greatness in all that you know is possible. Great risk is rewarded with great growth. However facing fear of failure is part of the task the universe is doling out.

In a nutshell, March offers us the opportunity to reexamine what is near and dear in our hearts, to resurrect an old flame of sorts, whether in the embodiment of human form or an unfulfilled passion of art or sport. March is a time to fan the flames of that desire while moving beyond fears and embracing new and exciting challenges.

2016 March begins with Mercury in Aquarius opposite Jupiter in Leo, plenty to talk about although the mind can be so active the talking can be to self.

You can find that March is a turning point in many ways. The full moon on the 5th from the Pisces/Virgo axis is seeking meaning and purpose in everyday life. If you feel fulfilled and at peace, all goes forward as is. If you have feelings that something is missing, then taking steps to shift your current position happen. The full moon is complicated with Venus, the planet of what we love and value caught up in the Uranus Pluto square pushing for change.

Saturn makes its first retrograde in Sagittarius on March 14th. Saturn in Sagittarius demands truth and justice. Even exaggerating a story will be challenged as the need for honesty and truth will prevail. News stories that have manipulated the public for dishonest reasons will have their veil torn away. The desire to travel can stir wanderlust, yet circumstances can hold one back until the responsibilities of day to day life are handled. Education and Universities will be seen in a different light, with Saturn in Sagittarius a reason to spend time and money for the degree.

Venus moves in Taurus, a sign she rules, on the 17th bringing the message to appreciate what you value and not take what you love and care about most for granted. It also can bring to your awareness what you want to have and include in your life and inspire you to gather it to your world.

The Pisces new moon solar eclipse on the 20th is connected to a fixed star called Scheat, the star of sorrow and suffering- ouch, sounds pretty negative yet this eclipse is connected to the last new moon in Aquarius, whatever thoughts, feelings, and emotions you set out at the last new moon can return to you under this solar eclipse.

When the Sun enters Aries on the 20th there is a breath of fresh air with enthusiasm to move forward in life with hope, courage and optimism. It is not that there are no challenges, but the message is to face your challenges and fears head on, change a belief pattern if need be, know what is at the core of happiness for you, and be willing to stand up and even fight for the life you want.

We finish the month with Mars moving out of feisty Aries and into a more relaxed sign of Taurus, suggesting to spend time appreciating nature and the earth.
