The month of March comes with a wave of healing introspection and long-lasting change that has been anticipated for years…
On the very first day of March, prepare for radical insights in the realm of relationships, pleasure, and finance as Venus squares off with Uranus at the final degrees of Aries a few hours before she moves in the sign of Aquarius. On March 5th, just one day before the ultra Neptunian Pisces New Moon, Mercury will station retrograde deep in the realm of dreamy Pisces for the first time since 2013, bringing us into touch with the healing powers of imaginative thinking. One day later, the historically known revolution-starter, Uranus, will re-enter the sign of Taurus for the next 7 years, inspiring us to take our presence here on Earth entirely to another level.
The New Moon in Pisces on March 6th will be conjunct with its modern ruler, Neptune, infusing far-out fantasy into our intentions this month. Mars will gain strength in the sign of Taurus while trining Saturn, the Lord of Karma at home in Capricorn, on March 14th. The Gemini Moon will also be squaring the Sun and Mercury while sitting opposite Jupiter on this day, making it an auspicious time to seek counsel and adjust your environment for the better.
The Equinox on March 20th, marked by the Sun’s transition into Aries, will be followed by a Full Moon at 0° of Libra just a few hours later. A stimulating alignment between Venus and Mars will spark undeniable passion in our relationships that has us thinking practically about the long term implications of who we choose to share our energy with. Take some time to process the Zodiacal New Year on March 24th, when Mercury retrograde meets Neptune in Pisces perfectly; immerse yourself in artistic expression and get yourself near water on this day if you can.
Relationship aspects that once felt tense at the start of the month will likely feel more easeful by the 27th when Venus enters the sign of Pisces and sextiles Uranus newly in the sign of Taurus. Opportunities to be social and experience pleasurable outings this week will be plentiful. After a month of reconsidering the deeper meaning in life, Mercury stations direct while conjunct Neptune on March 28th, slowly waking us up to how we can bring more compassion and sensitivity to our commitments.
