The month of March may appear to be a slow month with not a lot happening. But a lot is occurring under the surface. You want to move on with your life. You want to spend more time in social engagements. Yet you also realize that can’t quite happen. So, this is a month for reflecting on your plans and preparing to move forward with your life, especially with Venus forming a sextile to Uranus and Mars entering the sign of Gemini on March 3rd.
When Venus forms the sextile to Uranus, you feel as if something new is about to occur in your life. You may make some new friends. You may approach projects in a different way. Or, you may actually run into some old friends that you haven’t seen for a while.
The other thing about Venus forming the sextile to Uranus is that this can be a day where things of a positive nature just seem to happen in your life: You’re in the right place at the right time…You make a snap decision and suddenly you see an opportunity that wasn’t there before. Some people might think of this as an auspicious day.
As Mars enters the sign of Gemini you find that communicating with others is very important. You want as much information as possible. You want to solve problems and get on with your life. You also want to involve other people in solving these problems.
On March 4th, Mercury forms a conjunction to Jupiter. This is the third time this conjunction occurs in this triad sequence. The first time it occurred was on January 11th when both planets were direct. The second time it occurred was on February 14th when Mercury was retrograde. And today when it occurs Mercury is once again in direct motion.
When Mercury is in the sign of Aquarius, you want to find ways to move into the future and let go of past situations which caused problems. And, with Mercury forming the conjunction to Jupiter in Aquarius, this feeling is even stronger. You don’t want to be held back. You want to move on with your life. You don’t want other people to tell you what to do.
You feel optimistic that you can achieve results and make changes in your life. You’re willing to take risks and don’t want anyone to stand in your way. The good news is that you can rely on friends and other people to help you as you promote your ideas. This is a good day to start something new because you’ll find a lot of support from others.
As you continue to look at your life to determine what you want, you start thinking about the past and its impact on your future. This is because Venus is forming a square to the Moon’s Nodal Axis on March 9th. When Venus forms the square to the Moon’s South Node in Sagittarius, you realize that some of your goals may be based on old belief systems that aren’t that important anymore. And, since Venus is also forming a square to the Moon’s North Node in Gemini, you realize that if you take the time to consider new directions, you’ll find your answers. Basically, you’ll be able to take lessons learned from the past and make new choices for your future growth.
And, with the new Moon occurring on March 13th, this is a good time to reflect on potential new choices, especially since Ceres is forming a conjunction to Chiron and Venus is forming a conjunction to Neptune after the new Moon occurs.
Normally when there’s a new Moon, you want to start something new. But today it’s a little different because the new Moon occurs with both the Sun and Moon in Pisces. Instead of starting something new, you want to reflect on new possibilities. You want to understand just how these new possibilities are going to impact your life. You want to find that balance between your physical reality and your spiritual philosophy.
And, while technically the conjunction between Ceres and Chiron as well as the conjunction of Venus and Neptune aren’t exact until after this new Moon occurs, their energy is very active during the time of the new Moon.
With Ceres and Chiron both in Aries forming a conjunction you want to find that balance between nurturing your soul and taking care of your physical body. So, any new projects which you are considering need to increase your sense of well-being. And, it’s important to remember that you don’t have to do it all alone. Granted there is a tendency to feel you can’t trust anyone. Or, you may feel that other people are more interested in their needs rather than your needs. But, that’s not necessarily true. If you take the time to understand your needs and communicate them clearly, you’ll find you have a lot more support than you thought.
And this support can even be indicated by the conjunction that Venus in Pisces makes to Neptune in Pisces which by the way also forms a conjunction to the Sun in the new Moon chart. This energy emphasizes the importance of reflecting on your possibilities and letting other people know you need their help. This is also the time to understand your dreams so you can make them real.
As Mercury enters the sign of Pisces on March 15th, you continue to reflect on your possibilities. But now it’s a little more difficult to reach out to other people for help. You may decide to keep your thoughts to yourself. You don’t want other people to influence your actions. But that’s all right. Even if you receive information from others, take the time to think about it before taking any action.
When Mars forms a sextile to Chiron on March 17th, you feel as if you can do anything. You don’t think that you need help from anyone. But it’s still a good time to reach out to your friends. By doing so, you’ll find that they have some insight which can help you move on with your life.
When Venus forms the sextile to Pluto on March 18th, you feel very passionate about situations in your life. You’re willing to make commitments in your life. You understand that you need to take a stand. You may even feel driven to protect someone that you love. Or, you may feel as if you understand the needs of others and can help them through any difficulties they’re going through.
As Ceres forms the sextile to Saturn on March 19th, you want to make certain that things in your life are organized. You don’t want any chaos. For this reason, this is a good day to organize your files. Also, this could be a good day to establish rules with other people if you feel they are overstepping their boundaries.
The Sun enters the sign of Aries on March 20th and the astrological year begins. In the Northern Hemisphere this is known as the Spring Equinox and in the Southern Hemisphere this is known as the Autumnal Equinox. This is going to be a year where healing is important as the Sun forms a conjunction to both Chiron and Ceres. Normally when the Sun is in Aries, you want to move on with your life. But this time, you don’t want to take any risks. You want to continue to increase both your personal safety as well as the safety of people you care for.
The Sun will also form a sextile to Mars and the Moon’s North Node in Gemini. This means that you want transparency. You want to understand what’s going on in the world. You don’t want any secrets.
But the transparency may not be easy to get. Not so much that other people are trying to withhold the truth from you. It’s more that there is still a lot that’s not known. For this reason, you may feel frustrated with situations in life. You may feel that you want to be able to do more but there are still rules which prevent you from interacting socially with others the way you want to. So, as the astrological year begins, the best thing that you can do is determine what’s important in your life and find a way to implement your plans in a safe manner. Life will move on, just not as quickly as you’d like it to.
The day after the Sun enters Aries and the Equinox occurs on March 21st, Venus enters the sign of Aries, Mercury forms a sextile to Uranus, and Mars trine Saturn.
Venus is not comfortable in the sign of Aries, its detriment. While Venus represents the desire to care for other people, Aries represents the need to take care of yourself. So, when Venus is in Aries, you have this fear that you may lose your individuality if you get involved with other people. For this reason, it’s important that you know what you need in life to move on before you help other people. That way you won’t lose your individuality.
With Mercury forming a sextile to Uranus you are more willing to express your needs. You recognize that you have value to contribute to any conversation. And you don’t care about what other people think. Rather you find that you’re open to new ideas and see situations from a different perspective.
And, as Mars forms the trine to Saturn, you find ways to create some plans for those new ideas that are percolating in your mind. Suddenly not only do you understand your needs, but you also know how to communicate them in a way that other people understand. By doing this you realize that quite a few of your friends are willing to give you the support you need.
It continues to be easy to create plans on March 25th as Mercury forms a square to the Moon’s Nodal Axis and Mars forms a sextile to Ceres. You understand that some of your long-term plans may be a little bit too ambitious. You also realize that you need to pay a little more attention to details. And, one of those details is communicating your plans with others.
Another aspect of your planning today is to make sure your personal space is organized. With Mars forming the sextile to Ceres you want all your paperwork in order. You also want to make life a bit more efficient. By organizing your space today, not only will it be easier to work, but you’ll actually find some important documents that you thought you lost.
When Mars in Gemini forms a conjunction to the Moon’s North Node in Gemini on March 26th, you really understand the importance of that paperwork that you found yesterday. In order for you to make plans, you have to have all your paperwork in order.
Before the full Moon occurs on March 28th, Venus in Aries forms a conjunction to Chiron in Aries. Usually when these planets are in the sign of Aries you move forward with your life and don’t pay attention to the needs of others. But today is different. You feel as if you’re able to understand the needs of others. Your gentle side is very evident. You don’t want to cause any pain. And because you understand the importance of loving yourself, you’re also able to give other people the emotional support they need to find their own way. You’re able to give them the tools they need to succeed.
This ability to understand your own needs while working with others continues as the full Moon occurs. This is because the Sun in Aries forms a conjunction to Chiron and Venus while the Moon in Libra forms an opposition. What this means is that you know what you need. You also care that other people are being treated with respect. You want to be supportive in your relationships. But, you also know that if other people try to take advantage of you, you will walk away.
As Mercury forms a conjunction to Neptune on March 29th be very careful, especially since both planets are in the sign of Pisces. You’re not getting all the information you need. Even if people don’t mean to deceive they can’t seem to communicate the facts. It’s as if your mind is surrounded by a fog. And, do everything possible not to sign any contracts today unless you have no choice. Judgments aren’t very good right now.
Things get a lot better on March 30th when Venus forms the sextile to Saturn. You feel organized. You feel supported by others. You can make commitments. And, you can get things done. Just don’t be too critical of yourself. There is a tendency to have high expectations when this aspect occurs.
And, on a spiritual level, it’s interesting to note that when the month began, Venus formed a sextile to Uranus and you wanted to move on with your life. So, while you may not have felt that a lot happened during the month, it did under the surface. With the start of the month and Venus forming a sextile to Uranus you were open to new concepts. Now with the month ending and Venus forming a sextile to Saturn you can create a plan as long as you keep it realistic and based on your reflections.
