March enters with the Virgo Full Moon on the 3rd. This Full Moon will accompany an eclipse at 4:22 PM MST that can be seen in Europe, Africa, western Asia and the eastern Americas. The truth and future orientated planets, Jupiter and Uranus, are strongly positioned at this Moon, indicating a restless energy that is discontent with the status quo. Both planets support coincidence, so one would certainly want to pay attention to apparent flukes and 'twists of fate'. Eclipses are believed to leave an energetic imprint that is felt more intensely and for longer periods than a regular Sun/Moon connection.
The grand trine configuration that occurs in the spontaneous and prideful fire signs between Venus, Saturn and Pluto provides opportunities for self-expression and impetuous action that is power driven.
With a retrograde Mercury rising before the Sun at this time, information that has been suppressed will come to light that could have sensational effects. In the evening on 3/7 Mercury returns to direct motion at a degree that is associated with gut instinct.
Daylight Savings time begins at 2 AM Sunday March 11th so remember to turn your clocks forward.
Venus enters romantic, sensual Taurus on St. Patrick's Day 3/17. Venus, the relationship and money planet, operates well in Taurus enjoying sensual and affluent pleasures.
Mercury enters Pisces just hours before the New Moon eclipse on March 18th at 8:22 PM. This Pisces New Moon has strong spiritual and power orientated implications. Its challenging connection to the Galactic Center and the Moon's nodes indicate the potential for strong social and political conflict. Ideals butt up against political agendas. To find out which signs are most affected by this eclipse go to www.NorthStarAstrology.net on the articles page for further information.
March 20th brings us the spring equinox when the Sun enters Aries proclaiming the beginning of a new season. Aries, as the first sign of the zodiacal circle, enjoys being number one.
Mars, the planet of initiative and action as well as planetary ruler of Aries, is moving through a planetary traffic jam with Saturn, the planet of limitations, and Neptune the planet associated with confusion. Discernment and planning will be key to the success of projects initiated at this time.
Uranus, a planet stimulating change and freedom, will rise before the Sun for the last weeks of March promoting creativity and innovation.
On 3/31 Pluto begins his retrograde trek through 28 - 26 degrees of Sagittarius for the next five months providing another opportunity to release what is no longer necessary.
