MARCH 2015

March is the changeover month between a long frozen Winter and the promise of Spring. This major energy switch of the Vernal Equinox is on March 20 this year and has the added power of a total Solar Eclipse happening on the same day. The eclipse will not be visible from the USA but we will feel it. It occurs at 29 degrees of Pisces, the last degree of the zodiac. It portends closure of what needs to end. Get ready to let go of what seems to be taken away from you.

Uranus and Pluto continue to move along in a tense relationship and the world will continue to feel the tension this causes. They have been confronting each other since June of 2012. Think back and see how they have affected the area of your chart that holds the mid-teen degrees of Aries and Capricorn.

Saturn turns retrograde for the first time since he entered Sagittarius. He gives you time to rework your ideas and solve the new challenges that he’s given you so far in 2015.

March 1 – Moon VC Cancer, enters Leo 6:34 pm. Today is a lazy, stay at home day. The kind where you have the time to do the fun things, like inventing new recipes, and also the necessary things, like checking the due dates on the food in your pantry and refrigerator.  Choose some food items that you bought on a whim and are still good but you don’t want and put them in a bag to give to the the food bank.

March 2 – Moon in Leo. It’s a happy, active day. Everything you do can be made exciting and fun. It will easy to work hard and enjoy the creativity you discover in yourself. Forget about feeling shy and let the fire energy of the day help you show the world what you can do. Promote yourself and your work and your business. Send in applications and writing proposals. Do tomorrow’s work today.

March 3 – Moon VC Leo. The whole day is under a void of course moon yet there’s creative energy as Jupiter and Uranus operate in sync to offer you encouragement to do something new. Focus on your own projects, the ones that bear the stamp of your original thoughts. Let your imagination free. Find time for pleasure.

March 4 – Moon in Virgo. Now you can fill in the details and specifics of your work. You can catch up on things that are still dangling from last month’s weather disruptions. Pay attention to the brief encounters you have that touch your heart. Listen to what those people say to you, as it is important. You will feel passionate about what you want, so take time to see how that impacts on the dynamics of your relationship.

March 5 – Moon in Virgo, VC 1:36 pm. You need to do two days work this morning. Today’s full moon highlights the symbolism of the Pisces-Virgo axis –helping others while having a kind heart full of compassion. It signals a need to blend the physical and spiritual worlds. It is time to bring something to an end, just as winter is ending soon, and get ready to move forward and not look back.

March 6 – Moon VC Virgo, enters Libra 7:52 pm. Do the best you can today. Tie up the loose ends in every facet of your life. You’ll see flaws and mistakes at every turn but don’t try to multitask or you’ll just make it worse. Take one task and plod along. You may want to save some important phone calls and emails to do tomorrow.

March 7 – Moon in Libra. Chiron meets the Sun and gives you this special day of healing. You can solve any lingering problems that you have on the physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual level.

Do what you need to do to improve the security of your home, your money, and your emotional well-being.

March 10 – Moon in Scorpio. Mars and Jupiter laugh together and dare you to step beyond your usual boundaries. They offer energy to create and they want you to try your luck and take a risk if it feels right. Listen to your inner voice if it tells you no from a place of logic, not from fear.
