Welcome to a true new beginning in the energies! There are a lot of planetary shifts happening this month. This gives us a feeling that we have more ability to set things into motion and clear away what is no longer needed in our lives, as we expand and grow into the next step on our Destiny Path!
March is a Universal 1 Month in numerology and so brings us fresh starts, new directions and an ability to move forward, unlike last month which seemed more like a “going with the flow” energy, and one of patience and healing. We just had Mercury turn to direct motion on February 28th which will allow our plans and ideas to start to take form and begin to be implemented in our lives without any obstacles or hindrances. We also just had a New Moon at 11 degrees Pisces. This occurred for some of us late on February 28th and for others, on March 1st. This allows for a new beginning on the spiritual level so use your visualization abilities in meditation to imagine what it is you would like to create next. What do you intend for yourself? What do you desire to manifest? This is a great time to contemplate and use your creative self-expression to take the next step!
Also on March 1st the planet Mars, which is the planet of energy and action, turns to retrograde motion at 27 degrees Libra, the sign of cooperation, compromise, peace, balance and relationships. Mars will be retrograde until May 2014 when it will turn back to direct motion at 9 degrees Libra. During this time period it gives us a chance to slow down and re-work our relationships (relationships of all kinds – romantic, business, family, friends, work, etc.) and figure out what we really want, what is in our Highest and Best Interest and if we desire to continue moving forward in the same way. When a planet turns retrograde it internalizes the energy so that it doesn’t function the way it normally would. We may also feel that our energy levels are lower than usual, the development of projects and plans slow moving, and frustration levels within ourselves heightening which can lead to acts of impatience. Please know that Mars retrograde is just giving us more time to take care of situations in our lives and that there is no cause for concern or anxiety. This is giving us all a chance to make sure that all of the details are covered before we charge full steam ahead the second half of the year after Mars is out of its shadow period in July.
Then, on March 2nd, another planet changes direction. Saturn, Karmic Task Master and Teacher of Great Lessons, turns retrograde at 23 degrees Scorpio. Saturn rules structure, authority, and manifestation but it also rules restrictions, delays and limitations. While Saturn is retrograde it will be time for us to restructure situations in our lives. It will not be a time to start anything new when it comes to building or manifesting, but to work on completing those projects, situations or ideas that have been left undone or only partially completed. Saturn is also known as “Father Time” so we need to persevere and endure the slower than usual time that it takes to complete our tasks and live up to our responsibilities. Saturn gives us strength and pushes us beyond what we perceive to be our limitations……..he shows us that we can accomplish anything that we put our effort towards and the reward is usually worth the wait!
On March 5th Venus, planet of love, relationships, values and money, moves into the sign of Aquarius. In this sign we will love and value humanitarian efforts and situations with groups of people of like mind that share a common ideal. Venus in this sign is less about individual love and more about Universal Love and what’s in the best interest of the many. Aquarius is also a sign of freedom so you may find that those of you in relationships need a little more space to be independent and express your individuality.
Then we get to the last planet changing directions this month. On March 6th Jupiter, planet of good luck, growth and expansion will turn direct at 10 degrees in the sign of Cancer. It has been retrograde since November 2013 and during this time we have reviewed our belief systems about home, family, and responsibilities. We have also done a lot of healing and purging regarding our emotions, and have focused on the integration of the Divine Feminine energies on the planet.
On March 16th we have a Full Moon at 26 degrees of Virgo. This lunation is making a positive aspect to Saturn in Scorpio which lends some support for securing and grounding the energies in the creation and stabilization of its power. The next day, on March 17th, Mercury moves into Pisces getting closer to the degree where it went retrograde at the beginning of February. Within the next five days it will join with Neptune in Pisces and trine Jupiter in Cancer. These few days will bring gifts of the imagination, visualization, creative writing and connecting with our intuitive, psychic and healing abilities. It will be a great time for practices of meditation, yoga and spiritual journeying.
We also have the Sun moving into Aries on March 20th. This is called the Vernal Equinox and heralds a time of true new beginnings as I stated at the start of this article. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is the beginning of the Astrological New Year. This will be a time for new birth, new energies, new directions and moving forward on our Path. Even with Mars retrograde we should still see movement, even if it is slightly slowed down for purposes of attending to all of the details of the situations and circumstances in our lives. By fine-tuning these energies it will allow us the chance to best utilize that movement forward.
Then, to end the month, on March 30th, we have a New Moon at 10 degrees Aries. This should be quite a powerful New Moon as it conjuncts Uranus (the Great Awakener) in Aries, and squares both Jupiter (the Great Benefic) in Cancer and also squares Pluto (the Great Transformer) in Capricorn. We will start to see the beginning of many changes to come with this lunation……………changes, both personally and on a worldwide scale with humanity and perhaps even the Earth herself. We are warming up the energies for a powerful Grand Square in the cardinal signs in the month of April so be sure to stay tuned for the description of that planetary configuration next month!
I asked the Angels what information and messages they wanted to share with everyone for this month of March and this is what they said.
The angels ask that we dream big for ourselves and reach for the greatest attainment of energies within our lives. See yourself succeeding in all you do and don’t settle for anything less than you deserve…..which is ultimate happiness, joy, contentment, prosperity and abundance in all areas of your life!
They want you to explore all of your options, check out all possibilities, and review all ideas before making the best decisions for yourself and your life. You might need to seek out a “teacher” or professional to assist you in creating or expanding your thoughts and ideas, or someone that has information that would help you to move forward with your plans in the best possible way.
The angels are asking that we trust……trust in ourselves…..trust in the process…..trust in the timing……………..and trust that they are helping us behind the scenes in making our desires a reality! They say that the energies are aligning and things are getting ready to “take off” and expand beyond our wildest dreams! Miracles are getting ready to happen!
Many Blessings to You!
