March is a relatively quiet month, astrologically. We will have our moments of celestial activity, but with less intense cosmic bombardment of acute events. Whew.
With no major planets in retrograde, this month will bring strong activation energies as we move from gentle Pisces to Aries, the warrior ram.
Wednesday, March 2nd, starts with a New Moon in Pisces. Under this moon, we will have a glimpse of the watery, unseen world of the unconscious. We will be confronted with themes such as compassion and understanding, dissolving and creating barriers, empathy, surrender, confusion, and a focus on selfish vs. unselfish behavior.
We are currently watching these themes unfold on the global stage. The relationship between Venus, Mars, and Vesta is all about a singular focus on what you wish to achieve. Keep in mind this energy is benign. It can be used in any way possible, regardless of the intention.
We also see Jupiter voyaging through Pisces. This movement lends optimism as we sort out internal and external power struggles influenced by the Mars/Venus energy. Pisces helps us go with the flow. So, take time to be calm while the storm rages.
By Sunday, March 6th, Mars and Venus are conjunct in Aquarius. It will become an excellent time to focus on new goals.
On Wednesday, March 16th, we have Chiron conjunct with Pallas. This event calls us to demonstrate courage, and a period of reflection will begin on March 17th with Mercury in Pisces. This is just in time for the Virgo Full Moon and Pluto in Capricorn on the 18th. Here, we will feel an increasing drive for power and success. But be warned, if not used properly, it could fail you.
On Sunday, March 20th, we arrive at the Equinox, the start of Aries Season, and the Astrological New Year brings renewed passion and enthusiasm to your projects. As a result, you may experience a feeling of fearlessness as you burst forward into any situation.
Finally, watch your words starting Sunday, March 27th. Mercury, the planet of communication, will enter audacious Aries. Speaking without thought could land you in hot water for the following two weeks.
Spend time working with Aquamarine this month.
Aquamarine is the birthstone of March. It will support the calming and soothing vibrations needed to support you during this period.
