March begins with increasing tensions as Mars and Venus (the masculine and feminine archetypes) approach a tight conjunction with Pluto (the underworld lord of transformation) at 27° Capricorn while Mercury joins Saturn at 19° Aquarius.
Any planet that is contacted to Pluto will have some kind of extreme and/or threatening experience to deal with, particularly in this case as it is Mars, the god of war. In some ancient cultures, Venus was also considered to be warlike as well so the tension from both is real. Add to that, Mercury traveling close to Saturn usually produces anxiety and worry. I know I am feeling it.
Fortunately, there is a new Moon on March 2nd in Pisces close to Jupiter’s position which does indicate that hope is present but also that having hope is part of the solution to the situation at present.
This new Moon is in a part of the sky related to the divine physician, also known as one hundred healers. However, this healing comes out of a wounded nature or situation. Keep that healing energy in mind if you do any new Moon rituals on the 2nd. Call the divine physicians in for their wisdom and help.
All the planets, with the exception of Uranus in Taurus, are within 56 degrees of each other which is a very tight bundle of energy. This adds to the tight pressure or high anxiety feeling that many of us are experiencing to some extent about our outer world and possibly our inner world as well if these planets touch points in our natal charts.
One must rely on inner resources and patience to get through this period. Remember to include gratitude, joy, fun and kindness in your life as we all are going through some kind of turmoil. This, too, shall pass, as the aspects mentioned above start to wane after March 5th but then Mars and Venus start to move closer to Saturn’s position in Aquarius through the end of this month. The middle and end of April holds promise in many ways.
Read your Sun sign and Rising sign for best information.
Aries — March 21-April 19: With Mars, Venus and Pluto in your solar 10th house, there are some changes coming up that you will need to deal with over the next week in particular. Pull yourself back from heated conflicts with others as it will only escalate the situation and then be hard to extract yourself from. You would be wise to use the energy to plan and strategize your next moves. Saturn rules this house so be conservative and follow the rules. The 4th and 5th and the 31st are power days for you.
Taurus — April 20-May 20: Your ruling planet, Venus, is close to Mars and moving towards Pluto in the first part of the month. This can mean volatile relationships or an intense situation arising. It’s great for sex so instead of fighting why not use the energy that way? Since Saturn rules your solar 9th and 10th houses, it is a “be patient and follow the rules” energy. Saturn can be harsh but now it is a do the work properly so you will get the results you desire. The 6th, 7th and AM hours of the 8th are your special days this month.
Gemini — May 21-June 21: With the new Moon and a favorable Jupiter in your solar 10th house you can gain headway in your career and public image at this time. Your ruling planet, Mercury, is very close to Saturn for the next 6 days so there is some anxiety or negative thoughts that could make you worried or have “what if” concerns badgering your psyche. This is a time for discipline and focus regarding your thoughts. Align your actions with your thoughts for best results. The PM hours of the 8th, the 9th and the 10th are your stellar days.
Cancer — June 22-July 23: The narrowed focus of the planetary positions this month occupy the 7th, 8th and 9th houses of your natal chart. Therefore, concerns about partnerships, business and personal, as well as loss of control, end of life matters and your beliefs and higher philosophies regarding life in general are on your mind. It feels kind of heavy, yes, but there is a time to dwell on these issues and for you it is now. Taking time to do this will give you greater ease in future decision making as you will truly know where you stand and what and who you want to align with. Your days of personal power are the 11th, 12th and AM hours of the 13th.
Leo — July 24-August 23: With the Sun, your ruling planet, in the solar 8th house you have some rather serious life considerations going on now. Fortunately, the Sun is with Jupiter and Neptune so there are some benefits coming to you by dealing with the situation honestly and openly. The Saturn/Mercury conjunction happening in your solar 7th house gives you some concerns about your partner’s wellbeing. Saturn has been in this house for over a year now so this is not a new development. Do your part to handle some of the burden to make his/her life easier. The 14th and 15th are your stellar days.
Virgo — August 24-September 22: The Mercury energy with Saturn right now favors you being disciplined about heath, habits and work/life balance. While not that much fun, remember to schedule some time off to get away and take time to have some fun. The new Moon on the 2nd happens in your solar 7th house so make conscious effort to pay attention to your partner’s needs and desires for continued happiness. The 16th and 17th are personal power days for you.
Libra — September 23-October 22: With Venus, Mars and Pluto in your solar 4th house, there’s some intensity about the home, parents or your family ancestry going on. That energy is a bit intense personally but also if you are involved in some kind of remodeling or construction project. Take extra care when handling tools, flammable items and your own energy. Take your time with all tasks and remember to relax after the tasks are done. The new Moon happens in your solar 6th house so that new beginning is about habits, health routines, and work/life balance. The full Moon on the 18th is fortunate for you as a turning point and the 19th continues that positive energy.
Scorpio — October 23-November 22: With Saturn and Mercury in your solar 4th house there’s an energy that wants to stay close to home and just be involved with family members and their situations. Mars and Venus will soon join Saturn in that house so the energy gets more intense after March 7th. It’s a great time to do some home improvement projects you have been putting off. On a fun note, Jupiter, Neptune and the new Moon are transiting your 5th house of creativity and fun so that is a wonderful vibration for artists or anyone who loves creative expression. The 20th, 21st and AM hours of the 22nd are days of positive energy for you.
Sagittarius — November 23-December 20: With Jupiter close to the new Moon on March 2nd, there’s a resurgence of attention and energy for your home, your family and relationships with your family. The planetary energies are concentrated in the solar 2nd, 3rd and 4th houses so it is an intertwined situation with assets, money, siblings, communication and home and family. Make sure you are clear in your understanding and speak up for clarification if you are not sure you “get it”. Let the positive vibes of the PM hours of the 22nd, the 23rd and AM hours of the 24th guide your actions.
Capricorn — December 21-January 20: With Mars, Venus and Pluto in your solar 1st house there is an intensity about your personal being now so you might find people either repelled by your powerful magnetism or extremely attracted to it. Finances may be causing some concern with Saturn in your 2nd house but you have been dealing with this for over a year now so some solutions should be coming in soon. The new Moon happens in your 3rd house so a new way of communicating your mission out in the world is possible to develop this month. The PM hours of the 24th, the 25th and 26th are your stellar power days.
Aquarius — January 21-February 19: The energy of Pluto, Mars and Venus are in the last few degrees of your solar 12th house so you have some deep subconscious issues that may come up during the next week. Pluto will be there for the next 2 years so you are only just beginning this inner journey. With Saturn in your solar 1st house you are taking a mature and wise attitude about the world based on your past experiences. The energy of the new Moon and Jupiter are in your 2nd house so additional money may find its way to your pockets in the next 3 months. Sounds pretty good to me! The AM hours of the 1st, the 27th and the 28th are your best days.
Pisces — February 20-March 20: With Jupiter, Neptune and the new Moon on March 2nd happening in your solar 1st house, there’s some special magnetism happening for you right now and a new beginning in the works. Saturn in your solar 12th may keep you close to home but there are openings for new adventures and travel in the late spring and early summer. Be optimistic but also realistic about what you can really fit into your life. There are still 24 hours in a day so keep that in mind. The PM hours of the 1st, the 2nd, 3rd, 29th and 30th are your best days.
