March looks to be a powerful and eventful month. The Sun is still in Pisces until the 19th, when we have the Equinox, where it moves into Aries, but more about that later. Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the higher octave of Venus. Where Venus is the planet of human love, Neptune is the planet of Divine love. This may help to explain the reputation Pisces has for being “ dreamy, scattered, airy, ungrounded “, none of which are true. Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac, representing completion, compassion, kindness, empathy, and service. This month gives humanity an opportunity to access some of these qualities.
The Moon in Gemini on 3/2 forms a brief but challenging square to both the Sun and Neptune in Pisces. This is an aspect of denial, avoidance, illusion, or confusion. Trust your instincts, and look at the past behaviors that people have shown you. I’m expecting the spin doctor in chief to continue to lie to the country about the Corona virus, along with everything else.
3/5 is powerful, with the Moon in Cancer making 5 different aspects. It’s an interesting day, with the Moon ( feelings, emotions, the subconscious mind ), in opposition to 3 planets in Capricorn, Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn. We had this last month, and, again, we’re being given an opportunity to release people, places, and things that are no longer life affirming. It’s an opportunity to grow through transformation, to release old fears ( Saturn), to break the chains of old trauma ( Pluto), and to stop over-giving ( Jupiter) at the expense of ourselves. What supports this is the trines the Moon makes to both the Sun and Neptune in Pisces. This teaches us that love is always the answer: Love for self, love for the Earth, and respect and compassion for all living things. This could be a pivotal time for the Race Mind ( humanity), where a new direction is chosen. Humanity may choose to move away from fear based ideologies and the narcissistic abuse so prevalent now, into something kinder and more inclusive.
3/7 has the Moon in Leo making FIVE inconjunct aspects, ( also called a Quincunx), something I don’t recall seeing in a while. An inconjunct aspect is an aspect of a 150 degree angle between two planets. An opposition is 180, a trine is 120 degrees. A Quincunx is an aspect of adjustment, of an invitation to shift perspective. Having 5 of these on one day, with no other mitigating aspects, indicates that this continues the shift we began seeing on 3/5. People who have been stuck in their old wounds and fears may struggle with the new possibilities being offered, as this group of aspects gently shakes things loose. It’s best to let them decide what they want to do. Don’t engage, this is a time of Soul choice, and a Karmic opportunity, both individually, and for humanity.
3/8 is a serious wow factor day. The Sun and Neptune are exactly conjunct in Pisces, an incredibly beautiful aspect. Reach for your highest version of yourself, connect to Spirit. The Moon enters Virgo, and trines both Venus and Uranus in Taurus, which are Conjunct. Uranus represents change, the unexpected, surprises, a new direction. Adding Venus to that brings love, affection, creativity, and joy to the mix. Set your intention for yourself, for something magical.
3/9 is the Full Moon, with the Moon in Virgo opposition to both the Sun and Neptune in Pisces. At the same time, the Virgo Moon trines Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto in practical Capricorn. This is actually a very positive, energizing day. Plus, that annoying retrograde Mercury is finally over. Thank goodness.
3/13 is excellent, with the Moon in Scorpio making 5 positive aspects. Scorpio is fearless, so this is a good day to swing for the fences. Manifest your dreams. 3/14 is also good.
The Spring Equinox ( Ostara ) where the Sun moves into Aries is on 3/19. 3/22 and 3/23 are both days to take seriously, with Mars forming a conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn. Let’s take a moment here. Mars is extremely assertive on its own. Combine that with the ruthlessness of Pluto, the planet that rules the subconscious mind, the underworld, manipulation, bullying, and the unknown, gives this aspect the potential to either break free from anyone or anything, or can make unstable or volatile people even more so. Try not to engage with people you don’t know well. Absolutely avoid confrontations wherever possible. This is the only time this year these two planets are conjunct. I expect world events to reflect this.
The New Moon in Aries is on 3/24. Great for new beginnings, with lovely fire energy.
Saturday, 3/28, has more of that wow factor energy happening. Eight fabulous aspects today, bringing optimism, faith, blessings, expansion, tenacity, and courage. Seriously wonderful.
May this month be all that you dream of, bringing you peace, love, and laughter. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine
