This month you are likely to be called upon to integrate opposing areas of your life into one big calm, peaceful and harmonious medium.
This may take the form of aligning yourself with higher spiritual realms, or it may be more about learning to surrender.
The Temperance card — this version from the Crystal Tarot — speaks of searching within yourself for that wellspring of inner grace and finding a way to bring the good and bad, light and dark, happy and sad back into balance.
The Temperance card is called “Art” in some decks. It speaks of the unique creative forces that each of us possess. It speaks of seeking out symmetry and harmony.
In what areas of your life are you too inflexible, too rigid and too unwilling to hear another’s point of view? Your challenge will be to overcome those impediments and to integrate the opposing forces in your life.
In this version of the card we see an angel standing in a field and pouring fluid from one vessel into another. The grass is green and abundant at her feet, the sky is clear and the Sun shines behind her. The rainbow that is usually seen in this card is actually a part of her in this version. In her gown, in her wings and in the landscape behind her.
Her demeanor is calm and peaceful — almost trance-like, as if she’s mesmerized by the process. This is the essence of this card: there’s a calm and graceful symmetry in taking one’s time, going with the flow, and becoming one with all that surrounds you.
This is going to be especially important for you this month, with the New Moon in your sign, as well as Mercury, Venus and Chiron at different times. And while you may be tempted to strike out on your own, you want to be mindful during this time of how your words, actions and decisions can

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Mar 25, 2019 – Mar 31, 2019:
This week starts with a loose t-square involving Venus, the Moon and Mars on Monday. This is a fixed t-square with Venus at the focal point of a Moon / Mars opposition, and as both of them are debilitated by sign, it can manifest as conflict and contention in relationship.
Venus is void of course, with the Moon following right behind, but she’ll only be void for a few hours, before moving into Sagittarius. This should be a welcome change, and could see you wanting to spend time with those who make you feel good about yourself, rather than those who drag you down. The Moon in Sagittarius is expansive and spirited, with a strong focus on personal and spiritual evolution. Continue reading

This week starts on Monday with Mercury in sextile to Mars. Both of these planets are in detriment (each in the sign that is opposite of the one it rules), but the sextile is a harmonious aspect that should make up for it. In general, this aspect is great for making plans and then following through with them.
It’s about being on the same page with those you are working with and getting things done with little conflict or aggravation. Keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde, so you want to hold off on signing contracts or making important purchases. But if you’re thinking about negotiating a business deal or want to get your ideas before someone who can help you turn them into reality, this is the time to do it. Continue reading
