March 2011 Forecast

March is when the Sun transits through the Water element of Pisces and the Fire element of Aries .  Another powerful month is ahead.  Uranus moves into Aries after a 7 year visit in Pisces.  The last time Uranus was in Aries was 1927 – 1935.  Mercury will go retrograde at the end of the month as well.  With Uranus moving into Aries, the Spring Equinox this month, and Neptune moving into Pisces next month we are in for changing times and our world if reflecting that to us everyday!

Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar:

March 1st   – Venus (love, money & beauty) enters Aquarius (rebel, intellectual, unique)

March 4th – New Moon in Pisces (creative, intuitive, compassionate)  – A New Moon represents new beginnings, planting seeds, and setting intentions for the coming month. This is also a time when you may need to let something go to make room for the new and improved coming into your life.  For Aquarius, this is your one new moon of the year so you may want to set time aside to make a plan for the coming year. What do you want to see in 2011? Write it down and then take action during the coming months to make it happen. Signs most affected by this new moon will be Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius.

March 10th – Mercury (communication, thought, transportation& travel)enters Aries (independent, leader, competitive)

March 11th, 2011 – March 6th, 2019 Uranus moves into Aries – Key words for Uranus are freedom, rebellion, unexpected events, the great awakener, unconventional, technology, innovation, astrology, electricity, brilliance & humanitarian endeavors, among other things.  Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and represents independence, aggression, assertiveness, passion, and entrepreneurial and trail blazing energy.  Put Uranus and Aries together and you come up with a powerful force to be reckoned with in the coming eight years.   Wherever it is transiting in your chart will be revolutionized.  For example, when Uranus is transiting your seventh house of relationships you can possibly go through an abrupt separation…   or your significant other may be relocated to another part of the country and you have to stay where you are which will make your relationship a bit unconventional.  If you’re single, you may be more attracted to unconventional, unique type people or you may not want to be tied down and in a traditional committed relationship.  In terms of world events it can reflect unrest, revolts, revolutions, natural disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and volcano eruptions. We will all experience Uranus’ transit through Aries at some level but this transit will mostly affect Aries, Libras, Cancers, and Capricorns.

March 19th Full Moon at the end degree of Virgo.  A Full Moon represents energy for releasing, letting go, endings and completions and at the last degree of a sign it really emphasizes that fact.  A Full Moon can also mean a culmination of hard work which ends in celebration and maybe even moving into a totally unexpected direction.   Signs most affected by this Full Moon will be Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, Sagittarius.

March 20th–  Spring Equinox.  This is when the Sun moves into Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, and the seasons change from Winter to Spring.

March 30th – April 23rd – Mercury retrogrades approximately 3 times a year.  Mercury is the planetary ruler for Gemini and Virgo.  During Mercury retrograde you will want to back up your computer, service your car and other electronics.  Be patient when appointments don’t go as planned, travel is not on schedule or clear communication is a thing of the past.  Another consideration of Mercury in retrograde is to not sign contracts or set up big business deals because they may not be in your best interest (remember there are always exceptions to this rule).  This is a time of looking back and taking what you already have in life and either fine tuning it, healing it, removing it, or adjusting it.  Mercury is giving you a great opportunity!  Signs most affected the Mercury Retrogrades this year will be Aries, Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Sagittarius

Provided below are the horoscopes for each sign, if you know your Rising/Ascendant sign, read that sign, as well as your Sun sign.  To be clear, the Sun Sign forecast below is a generality.  If you want specific information based on your birth chart, I am available for readings to help you have the best possible year ahead.

Virgo August 23 – September 22:

When the Sun is opposite your Sun, which it is during this time of year, you can feel more drained and tired than usual.  Relationship issues that have not been dealt with will come up…  Break ups can happen…  Business partnerships can be more tenuous during this time.  Work through the issues now so you don’t have to revisit them later, especially knowing that Mercury, your ruling planet, will be retrograde March 30th – April 23rd.

Libra September 23 – October 23:

Scorpio October 24 – November 21:

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:

Home and family will be at the top of your list this month.  What honey-doos need to be taken care of…  A Spring cleaning may just be what the doctor ordered to get your home back to a place of peace and tranquility.  Then invite the family over to feel the love, laughter and joy that you may have gotten too far away from.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19:

This will be a busy month of short trips, networking and an incredible amount of information to sift through.  There may even be a move in the near future.  This is not a time to set down roots or make clear cut decisions.  This is a time to be flexible, spontaneous and free.  Enjoy!

Aquarius January 20 – February 18:

Your planetary ruler, Uranus (innovation, rebellion, freedom, surprise, separation), will move into Aries (independent, passionate, aggressive) March 11th.  This will activate the area of your chart that deals with taking classes, teaching classes, taking short trips, getting more involved in your community or even writing.  Pay attention to the inspiration that is guiding you right now.  It could lead you down a whole new and interesting path.
