March 2015

Overview

March is a month of two halves this year. The first half will be characterized by high energy, enthusiasm and a set of important can-do aspects – this should be an especially exciting time for the fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. After a mid-month crisis period, the second half of March is a much more thoughtful and down to earth time, which is helpful to the earth signs in particular.

We kick off on March 3rd with an exuberant Jupiter-Uranus trine. This fast moving energy urges us to surprise ourselves and to exceed our own expectations. It will have an influence on all signs, but since Jupiter is in Leo and Uranus is in Aries, the fire signs yet again are in the spotlight, followed by the remaining cardinal signs Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.

The following day, March 4th, Venus in Aries trines Jupiter, upping the stakes even further, especially in romance. There’s a lot of joy and goodwill with this aspect, but the more hot-headed signs will feel the urge to take things to extremes. On March 5th, the Full Moon occurs in critical Virgo, helping us to forgive ourselves for our faults, which again gives the go-ahead for more forward moving action and to some extent releases us from our responsibilities towards others.

This feel good factor continues up to March 9th with yet another bountiful, positive Jupiter aspect, this time a trine from go-getting Mars which will see Aries, Leo and Sagittarius several steps closer to some cherished goals.

The mood shifts significantly on March 11th, when all that enthusiasm begins to turn to recklessness or even revolution. On this date, Mars conjuncts Uranus and squares Pluto; on March 16th the Uranus-Pluto square becomes exact for the last time in the cycle which has been with us since 2010. These few days could see some dramatic escalations in tensions on the world stage, perhaps with what began as a populist movement turning into something altogether more sinister and harder to control.

Also during that week, Mercury enters Pisces, bringing religion to the front and center of world issues, and Saturn turns retrograde in philosophical Sagittarius, causing urgent re-thinks about how we approach our cultural and religious differences around the world.

The consequences of this mid month upheaval could be far-reaching, but on a day to day level we see a knee jerk selfish reaction as Venus enters Taurus on St Patrick’s Day. This is very possessive energy, and will not help if territorial disputes are in the news; on a more personal level, the earth signs will find themselves dealing with jealousies and flirtation in personal relationships – for Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, this could be an emotional time.

March 20th is the spring equinox in the northern hemisphere, as the Sun enters Aries to re-start its journey through the zodiac. With political tensions still lingering, it’s questionable whether this very forthright, potentially aggressive and warrior-like energy will help or hinder, although the Pisces New Moon on the same day should help to bring some compassionate voices to the table.

By March 25th, there should be some progress towards conflict resolution on both global and personal levels. The Sun trines Saturn now, getting some much-needed restraint and ethical guidance, and giving cooler heads a chance to prevail.

This gradual restoration of calm continues through to the end of the month. On March 30th, Venus trines Pluto. For Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, this is very healing energy and it’s a good time to build bridges. The arrival of Mars in Taurus on the final day of the month also shifts the focus away from “winning” and more towards “building” – whether that’s building consensus around the globe or building a practical pathway to your personal dreams.
