March 2015

March brings energy that supports negotiations, compromises, team work and patience. It will be needed as we move through the month. We have a Solar Eclipse on the 20th that will bring a completion or ending kind of energy into play. Although it is in Pisces, it is very close to Aquarius. Both signs will feel the impact. The effects of this eclipse could bring immediate activities/events or the effects could be gradual and take up to a year to unfold. Generally, waters, waterways, liquids of all kinds, drugs, and entertainers will feel this directly. Because of the closeness to Aquarius, it brings in electronics, electricity, airplanes/airports and machinery. This is a new moon and has an abundance of energy for finalizing or completing pending projects/activities. Two weeks later in April, there is a full moon Lunar Eclipse that will encourage emotional release.

SATURN retrogrades March 14 until August 2 - Government, big business, banking effected - read more under Retrograde Planets.

The stock market should continue to have a positive time - at least for the first 10 days. After that, caution should be exercised as there is a settling of energy.

March 11th is a day to watch, maybe even a day or two either side of that. There is powerful energy at play and accidents/events will be increased. Be careful in all things "sharp", firearms, fires, explosives, impulsive actions will bring negative results. The energy increases assertive behavior, aggressive actions and "selfness". The stock market may have a roller coaster ride. On the plus side, there could be sudden breakthroughs in negotiations, or in medicine. Either way, slow down, be cautious in all activities and business dealings.

Moons

A new moon initiates energy that will last for four weeks or one lunar cycle. The kind of energy highlighted is indicated by the sign in which the moon occurs. The full moon that takes place two weeks later brings the energy of that new moon out into the open, or to a peak. It continues to unfold energy for two more weeks until the next new moon when the cycle begins all over again highlighting a different area of our lives.

Daily

Mar 01: The moon opens in a VOID energy until 6:34pm when it happily moves into LEO. Foreign countries will be highlighted late afternoon as well as money markets around the world. This could open the month with a bang. Plans for the day could be delayed or changed.

Mar 02: The moon now moving easily in LEO definitely brings a lighter energy into play. And speaking of play, this is a good day for it! Our leaders as well as celebrities may also find themselves in the spotlight. Romance is even in the air! AQUARIUS sun signs want the light to shine on others and may find the energy today to be too much.

Mar 03: The moon shifts from LEO into VOID early morning at 3:47amET. The rest of the day will have a few delays or cancellations of appointments. Enjoy the positive side of this and find a lucky bargain! I believe VOID moon days bring in the unexpected...including luck.

Mar 04: The moon moves into VIRGO at 6:58amET and wow, the energy is high today. Having a to-do list ready to start the day is the best way to accomplish your tasks. It will be easy to be critical or picky today. Watch this as it will come back to you tomorrow when that full moon energy unfolds. This is a "squirrely" day - take the time to breathe. Pisces sun signs may want to sit this day out.

Mar 05: FULL MOON in Virgo at 14 degrees - close to 15 degrees - at 1:05pmET. There is a desire to help others in a serving sort of way. Bake cookies, help with chores, clean the car, etc. It is more duty bound that simply giving. Emotions are high so exercise patience and consideration. Use this energy to take care of those little details you have been ignoring.

MORE to COME... I am travelling and will continue this forecast BEFORE March 5th...

Retrograde Planets

When a planet is retrograde, its energy is weakened, misunderstood or projected in an unclear manner. The sun signs, industries, activities and so forth ruled by the retrograde planet, will feel held back, restricted, misunderstood or weakened. This is also a time when you are given an opportunity to re-do, re-evaluate these areas. Many times it brings about a better solution or happier direction.

JUPITER: Dec 8th – April 8th 2015

Jupiter is a benefic planet bringing a cushion in times of falls, luck in times unexpected. It is like having an angel on your should when it is in your sun sign. Jupiter can also bring legal matters into focus. Religions, higher institutions of learning, foreign places and people, judges and court rulings are all ruled by Jupiter. When it is retrograde, it pulls back or reduces the energy. It becomes weak. It is still active, just not as strong. If you are involved in any of the above mentioned subjects, these could slow down or be put on hold until Jupiter returns to full power in April. This slowdown allows time for review of what has already occurred. The sign of Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter. If you are born under this sign, you may feel as though you are a little slower than usual during this retrograde period. Use the time wisely to "catch up" and be ready to push forward once the retrograde period is over.

Transiting Planets

If a slower moving planet connects with one of your personal planets such as your Sun, Venus, Mercury or Mars, it will initiate a reaction or event regarding the planet that is touched. Example: transiting Jupiter connects with your Venus. You could simply have a wonderful couple of "feeling good" days while this is active or maybe win a lottery, fall in love with someone or something, have a facelift, settle a legal case, or set up a new banking account. It is helpful to know if this will be happening so you can plan better and be prepared to make it a good "connection". Here are the slower moving planets and the signs they will be travelling through in 2015:

Jupiter in Leo until Sep 2015. Jupiter is the fastest moving of the slower planets, staying approximately one year in each sign. It takes approximately 12 years for Jupiter to travel through all 12 signs. Those Leo sun signs that are experiencing this transit will not have this again for approximately 12 years. Virgo suns are next to have this benefic planet transit their sign. Jupiter moved into the sign of LEO in July of 2014 shifting the spotlight to those who are world leaders, famous sports figures and anyone in the arts/entertainment area, higher education, an emphasis on foreign countries/people (including long trips) and anything "legal". It will still be in when 2015 begins. It will complete the transit of LEO in the summer of 2015. This is a positive energy for LEO sun signs. Keep egos in check and make sure you can walk your talk!! Keeping in mind the legal influence, you can also attract a legal situation if you use this energy in a negative way. For instance, receiving a speeding ticket, filing a lawsuit or being involved in one, etc. Once it enters the sign of VIRGO in Aug, an adjustment will be made. More on that in the August forecast.

Saturn in Sagittarius until Dec 2017. The last time Saturn was in Sagittarius was late 1985 into early 1988. It takes about 2.5 years to transit one sign. Scorpio sun signs are quite relieved as it finally exited Scorpio. It WILL return once again to Scorpio but only for very brief stay this summer and only effects 28 and 29 degrees of Scorpio. It is now Sagittarius' turn to feel the structuring, disciplining and in some cases restricting energy of this transit. Saturn's energy helps us better manage our talents and urges. It can bring unexpected responsibilities or even a health issue that requires discipline and focus to overcome. Commitments made during a transit of Saturn to a personal planet have endurance energy/longevity. Negatively, they can feel like heavy responsibilities! But it is not a bad energy for a good marriage or business partnership if all other aspects are supportive. This is the time to stay current with your medical exams especially if you are born under the sign of Sagittarius, OR have a personal planet in Sagittarius, OR have Sagittarius rising OR have Sagittarius on your house of health (6th house). If you have planets in the sign of Gemini, Saturn will, at some point, create an opposing energy. This can bring limitations (including medical conditions) or simply push you to organize and discipline your activities. It CAN feel really burdensome – even depressing - having Saturn in your sun sign (or opposing it), but you do not have to feel that way. With the ability to focus and accomplish, use Saturn's positive side to finish up projects or goals that have been set aside. Take on any added responsibilities as a learning experience that will benefit you. Hard work is usually required when Saturn is in your sign so be prepared to work hard and be rewarded accordingly. Remember, work smarter not harder.

Uranus, in Aries, will continue transiting the sign of Aries moving from 12 degrees to 20 degrees in 2015. It does retrograde during the year and in Dec 2015 it will have retrograded back to 16 degrees Aries from 20. If you have a planet in your astro chart at 12-20 degrees Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn, Uranus will energize that planet sometime in 2015. Libra sun signs born Oct 5 -15 will feel this energy as an opposing force. It is challenging but not as aggressively challenging as those born in the sign of Aries will feel. You could suddenly want to quit a job, seek a divorce, change your hair style, or even relocate when this happens. The energy of freedom loving Uranus is not predictable except to say it is unpredictable. Sudden changes, accidents, changes in beliefs, strong desire to be free, etc can all be part of this energy. Be careful in your desire to feel free, to break the rules, to make radical changes, especially if you are aged 41-43. Remember, once the transit completes, you will be living with the consequences of your actions and decisions! Uranus is sending kind vibes to Aquarius and Gemini but challenging the signs of Libra, Cancer, Capricorn, and of course, Aries.

Neptune, in Pisces, will move from 5 degrees to 7 degrees Pisces during 2015. It is very slow moving. Be cautious in business dealings and LOVE as Neptune energy can be evasive and deceiving you before you know it. Neptune has a strong spiritual side and connects to the higher realms. It also rules all liquids and the oceans, water, floods, drugs, hospitals, jails, bodily fluids including perspiration! Perhaps if your planets are contacted by this transiting Neptune, you will find yourself returning to church, restoring your faith, being drawn to the beach, or finding that true love! Watch out, though! Make sure you remove your rose colored glasses before making major decisions. Virgo sun signs may find themselves working with Pisces sun signs or changing careers to work in a Pisces industry i.e., oil, ink, ocean liners, entertainment, singing, children, any music or acting, etc. Virgo sun signs will feel the opposing energy creating feelings of vagueness and mystery. Enjoy this opportunity to not only dream but to also see your dreams come true.

Pluto, in Capricorn, will transit 13, 14 and 15 degrees of Capricorn in 2015. Those born Jan 2-7, Apr 2-7, Jul 3 -9 and Oct 5-10 will most likely feel this transit more directly. Any planet you may have in your astrological chart that is at the degrees mentioned (13, 14, 15 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer or Libra), will feel the transformative power of Pluto. It can involve corruption, drugs, sexual desires, skin and teeth issues, government planning, the disciplining parent, and big business to name a few. Pluto in Capricorn helps define economic changes that will be beneficial and strong. Capricorn rules big business and government and government officials. These may be headliners in 2015. The changes being made will be long lasting ones as Capricorn is cautious and responsible. A very positive use of the energy would be to overhaul any area of your life that needs improvement. Emotionally you could embark on a new way of looking at life. A word to the wise should be sufficient! Virgo and Taurus – fellow earth signs of Capricorn – should find the transformations and changes, very positive and easier to integrate.

Void of Course Moon
When the transiting moon makes no aspect to a transiting planet, it is considered to be VOID. During these void periods - which can last a few minutes or a few days - it is best to avoid signing sign contracts, interviewing for jobs, or setting important appointments. Why? Because appointments are usually delayed or rescheduled altogether or they do not turn out as expected. Contracts have delays or have to be re-negotiated, etc. Job interviews turn out to be non-productive or empty promises are made. If, for instance, a first interview does occur and appears positive, you may be asked to start ASAP or have to interview with additional people, etc.

I feel that during void moon energy, solutions to problems can be found. Therefore, it is an excellent time for lawyers to find loopholes in cases or uncover evidence that will turn a case in their favor. Lost items are found or returned during this energy at a higher percentage than when the moon is not void. Any computer glitches that have evaded solution can suddenly be resolved. You can be lucky and win a lottery or raffle. Keep in mind that during a VOID MOON, any activities undertaken usually take TWICE as long to accomplish!!! There is also an element of LUCK associated with this void energy...use it wisely.

One thing is for certain -- always expect the unexpected during a VOID of COURSE MOON timeframe -- good and bad -- and be prepared for delays.

Be blessed always!
