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.
