March 2021

Although we will continue to feel the influence of the Saturn Uranus square with its disruptive nature and the push – pull between old and new, we come into March feeling good about things.

Let the warring factions do their thing, for eventually things will be sorted out. We are more interested in the sanctuary of our own lives — our home, our family, our friends, and our ambitions, ambitions that are not only taking care of our physical needs but also ambitions that reflect our true purpose and our expression of spirit and soul.

We may be feeling the thaw of winter, for March offers us some lovely qualities. The intensity of the past year and earlier this year dies down. A gentler quality to our lives becomes evident. We could finally affirm the truth to ‘life is good’.

The 3rd of March has Venus sextile Uranus and Mars exiting Taurus to enter Gemini [10:30 PM EST]. Serendipitous encounters, whether in physical form or altered state connections, could put a smile on our face. It might seem quizzical how bumping into someone significant to our journey or a sense of contact with someone from our distant past comes about, but such incidents are truly indicative of the paradigm shift and the breakdown of dimensions.

Our world is a great deal larger than what we had assumed. Like early explorers discovering realms unknown and never anticipated, our own discoveries may be mind-blowing and mind-altering as we broaden our perspective and deepen our understanding.

A lightening up in the first week of March can be highlighted by the Venus Uranus sextile and Mars entering Gemini on the 3rd, followed on the 4th by Mercury conjunct Jupiter.

Discussions may reveal insights. Transparency could uncover truths once concealed. It’s as if any secrets hidden come forward in blazing neon lights. There is freedom and liberation in truth, as if a weight has finally been lifted. Judgment might be harsh, but well deserved. We can feel upbeat, inspired, with a sense that universal justice is served. Yes, we could witness affirmations that the universe works.

Drawing upon the impetus of the ‘feel good’ qualities of the first week of March, the second and third weeks of March up to the Vernal Equinox accentuate our spiritual being.

March 10th has the Sun conjunct Neptune. We could be moody, highly emotional, but with a depth of feeling that touches our soul. Our sensitivity is heightened. Compassion may be evident. Perhaps humankind reclaims humanity with care and concern for our fellow beings.

The Pisces New Moon on the 13th [5:21 AM EST] has the Sun Moon conjunction and also Venus conjunct Neptune. With Neptune the higher octave of Venus, this signature and its impact over the next two weeks fosters our creative energies. We may be feeling soulmate connections with those with whom we come into contact. Our artistic sensibilities are accentuated. This is a time for us to embrace our ideals and a belief that we can truly create a paradise on earth. Even if the hurly-burly in the world-at-large continues, our own personal choices may be to retreat to our safe, happy space, the sanctuary of our life-enhancing qualities. While wrongly attributed to Mahatma Gandhi, the following statement may be in the forefront of our mind during this mid-March period: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

The 15th has Mercury exiting Aquarius to enter Pisces [6:26 PM EDT]. The Stellium of three planets in Aquarius ends, but the Stellium in Pisces is enhanced as Mercury enters Pisces to join the Sun, Venus and Neptune, all in the Mutable Water Sign. Mercury is in Detriment in Pisces where our thinking becomes more diffuse, more emotionally based than drawing upon critical analysis. We can be more easily swayed by appeals to our heart rather than addressing our brain.

This period is a time when we could go off, figuratively or literally, to escape the humdrum of our mundane routine.

We can get a better grip on our personal world and practical reality as we close out the winter season. The Sun sextiles Pluto on the 16th, and Venus sextiles Pluto on the 18th. Even if we have been floating in the ethereal regions, the Pluto connections will help ground us. We might have our head in the clouds, but our feet are likely to be firmly planted on the ground. We may focus on our priorities, but we could also be driven by a sense of our own personal destiny. Relationships can be far more collaborative and meaningful. No matter how difficult things might appear to be, and even when we don’t have a clue regarding where the twists and turns are taking us, it is essential that we keep in mind that in truth ‘we never get more than we can handle’ with a realization that ‘life is good’.

We come into the Spring season at the Vernal Equinox on the 20th as the Sun exits Pisces to enter Aries [5:37 AM EDT], the Cardinal Fire Sign and first Sign of the Zodiac to begin the astrological New Year.

Having lacked the Fire Element since the second week of January, except for the Moon’s monthly transits through the Fire Signs, this infusion of Fire by the Sun entering Aries, followed on the 21st by Venus entering Aries [10:16 AM EDT], gives us some ‘fire in our belly’.

The imprint for the Spring Season, as indicated by the astrological chart of the Sun entering Aries, can have us upbeat and enthusiastic, all the while drawing both upon our visionary sense and our practical application. We may feel as if we truly have it going on.

And in deed we may, for on the 21st, Mercury sextiles Uranus, Mars trines Saturn, and Venus exits Pisces to enter Aries [10:16 AM EDT], adding more fuel to our Fire. The Venus exit of Pisces ends the Stellium in the Mutable Water Sign and Venus enters a Sign of its Detriment where relationships are liable to suffer by our being self-absorbed tending towards narcissism. We needn’t go there if we can appreciate that each of us contributes something worthwhile to life and to our living.

The early Spring period may give us a sense that ‘everything’s coming up roses’.

Not only do we have a greater thrust of energy and more interest in finding venues for our self-expression and self-fulfillment. We can gain some ‘ah-ha’ moments, those revelations regarding the best course of action and how we could streamline our operations. We might be able to juggle any number of things in this early Spring period.

Like nature itself, we can feel a reawakening, coming back to life, less inhibited, more self-assertive and self-assured. We are ready to engage our rebirth and in our renaissance a willingness to advance our future interests in the most expeditious manner possible. We just have to be wary not to step on any toes in the process.

Toe-stomping is liable to occur on the 23rd when Mercury squares Mars. By juggling any number of situations and being energized by everything that we have going on, we could become a little slipshod in action and in our communications. This is a time when it is important for us to engage brain before speaking or acting. We could be so caught up in what we are doing that we don’t think things through. Impetuousness is liable to trigger various sorts of problems, and it would be wise for us to restrain ourselves, apply brakes and not get caught up in the frenzy of the moment.

Reflections on what we have done and what we are doing could be lost in the fourth week of March. Our tendency is more likely to forge ahead with confidence and self-admiration without fully considering how other people are perceiving our behavior. And we might not even care, which could be especially evident on the 26th as the Sun conjuncts Venus.

We can bask in the glow of our own ‘light’, enthralled by the wonderfulness of our being and engaging only those ‘yes’ people who make up our Mutual Admiration Society. Such an attitude may go well on a deserted island with a population of one, but such a disposition might have pushback if we choose to participate in larger social events.

The Libra Full Moon on the 28th [2:48 PM EDT] shines the light on our interactions with other people. By appreciating the unique qualities of those people who add sparkle to our life, we can enjoy the special friendship we have with others. The question of balance between our personal interests and those of other people may be challenging when we are so focused on our own desires, but we might find that collaboration could actually benefit our individual intentions, since other people can add ideas, suggestions and options that we ourselves may not have seen.

The 29th has Mercury conjunct Neptune. Our thoughts may be otherworldly, as though we are in some sort of dream state. We could either suffer illusions and delusions, or our intuition and sense of awareness can be heightened. It is staggering to learn how many scientific revelations and advances have occurred while the scientist was in a dream-like state, whether sleeping or quietly reflecting. Often answers come to us in ‘the still of the night’. And so it might be on the 29th. We may be moody and highly emotional, but we could also be attentive to that ‘knowing’ inner voice. This is a day for us to acknowledge the fact that sometimes answers come not so much from our perspiring and pushing ourselves but rather at times when we are not perplexed by the issue and instead resting our mind. An ‘either / or’ type of day, this energy configuration can increase confusion or reveal clarity.

We close out the month of March with Venus sextile Saturn on the 30th, followed by the Sun sextile Saturn on the 31st. Our creative impulses give us the fortitude to forge ahead in new directions, seeking out different trajectories from our usual, and implementing stream-lined techniques to accomplish a great deal. We are feeling the imprint of the Spring season and along with it embracing our own renewal, rebirth, renaissance.

March 2021… here comes the sun…
