Angelic Astrology – March 2018
This month we have two planets turning to retrograde motion! Jupiter, planet of expansion and belief systems, and Mercury, ruler of thoughts and communications. Both of these planets have their domain in the mental realm, so we will see what the effects will be as we move throughout the month. We will talk more about this later in the article, but let’s start by looking at the Numerology Vibration for March.
March is a Universal Numerology Vibration of 14/5. The reduced digit 5 is about a lot of movement and changes happening all at once! Sometimes 5 energy can have so much going on that it becomes chaotic and ungrounded. It can feel anxious, with a lot of nervous energies being experienced. The positive description of the 5 energy can be about multi-tasking and getting a lot done. It is about meeting new people, doing new things, and travel. The 5 is about freedom, excitement, adventure, and again, change.
The double-digit 14 is a karmic number in numerology. It is about abuse of freedom, and not being responsible for situations and relationships in your life. If you balance your sense of freedom, and the freedom of others, with being responsible and taking responsibility when needed, then all will go well.
The 14th Major Arcana in the tarot is Temperance and is ruled by fire sign Sagittarius which is all about FREEDOM! The true meaning of Temperance is “The integration of opposites” according to the book, “Essence of the Tarot” by Megan Skinner. It is the process of Alchemy, which involves taking two different elements and transforming it into something completely new. It represents “….the ability to transform aspects of your life that need to change.”
The first astrological energy of significance is the Full Moon at 11 degrees Virgo on March 1st. This lunation is creating a positive connection (trine) to Saturn, the Teacher of Lessons, in Capricorn and an opposition to Neptune, ruler of the spiritual realm, in Pisces. Venus, ruler of the Divine Feminine, and Mercury, ruler of the mental realm, also in Pisces, but out of orb to the Full Moon degree, is also in a positive relationship to Jupiter, planet of expansion, in Scorpio. These are all supportive aspects for this Full Moon energy, but the polarity of the Sun and Neptune, along with Venus and Mercury, in ethereal Pisces and the Moon in logical and analytical Virgo may have us vacillating back and forth from a dreamy, ungrounded feeling to a critical, perfectionistic way of expressing ourselves.
On March 6th we have two planets changing signs! Mercury, which rules our thinking and communication, and Venus, ruler of partnerships and personal resources, are both moving from water sign Pisces and into fire sign Aries! This starts to shift the energies from the “surrender and go with the flow” mentality to that of “taking charge and making things happen” realm. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is about initiation and independence, and once the Sun joins these two celestial bodies in this bold sign of the zodiac on March 20th, we will fully be in the “Let’s Start our New Path and Create New Beginnings” energies!
Then we arrive at what I believe to be the most important astrological energy of the month of March. Jupiter, ruler of our belief systems, turns to retrograde motion at 23 degrees Scorpio on March 8th and will not turn back to direct motion until July 10th, 2018! Jupiter is the planet that rules blessings and the expansion principle. When he (or any planet) turns to retrograde motion it internalizes the energies of that planet. This does not mean, however, that we will have no blessings coming to us. Instead, it usually means that the unfolding of the blessings are slowed down for a reason that we may not presently understand, or that the blessings that come are not what we thought we wanted. In other words, after the retrograde transit is over, it will have brought to us something even more valuable and wonderful than we could have ever imagined!
On March 17th we have a New Moon at 26 degrees of Pisces. This lunation of new beginnings is conjunct Chiron, the Wounded Healer, at 28 degrees Pisces, trine (positively connecting) with Jupiter retrograde in Scorpio at 23 degrees, and square (challenging) Mars, the Warrior, at 29 degrees of Sagittarius. Although this is a time of new growth, there are some intense energies related to this New Moon Cycle which is focused on a new way of experiencing ourselves from a spiritual perspective. There is an opportunity for healing old wounds so that we can move forward more successfully in the weeks to come. It is a time of spiritual empowerment and owning your truth!
Just a few hours after the New Moon, Mars, planet of energy and action, moves into Earth sign Capricorn. This shifts the focus of energy to our career, goals, status, who we are out in the world and our Destiny Path in general. Mars will travel through this practical and grounded sign of the zodiac until May 16th, when he will then make another transition into the humanitarian sign of Aquarius.
The second planet to turn to retrograde motion this month is Mercury. This ruler of the mental realm shifts directions at 16 degrees Aries on March 22nd, traveling all the way back to 4 degrees Aries, before turning back to direct motion again on April 15th. While Mercury is in this cycle of movement we are needing to check ourselves in how we are communicating with others, and with ourselves. Are we taking other people’s needs into consideration? Are we being bossy or self-involved? Are we taking the initiative with new ideas or thoughts? Are we being a leader in communications with other people when appropriate? Of course, during any Mercury retrograde, it is always a time to pay attention to details, be aware of any miscommunication with others, and, if possible, wait until the Mercury Retrograde cycle is over before signing any contracts or beginning something new.
We end the month, on March 31st, with two astrological events. First, Venus, ruler of relationships and finances, moves into Earth Sign Taurus where she will be until April 24th! While she is in this stable and productive sign, the focus will be on money, personal resources, and values. Second, and more importantly, we have a second Full Moon this month! This Blue Moon lunation (meaning the second Full Moon in the month) happens at 10 degrees Libra, sign of partnerships, balance, and equality. This Full Moon is in an opposition to Mercury Retrograde in Aries and a challenging connection to both Mars and Saturn in Capricorn. This could signify some challenges in relationship situations and circumstances. Clear communication is very important now with Mercury retrograde as a part of this lunation. The square to Mars, the Warrior, and Saturn, the Teacher, indicates that if we steady ourselves, stay grounded, and focus on what we are trying to manifest, we will be able to move through any lessons and get a lot accomplished.
