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.

Mar 06: The moon is VOID until this evening at 7:52pmET when it moves into LIBRA. The energy will feel scattered today but yet positive. There is an unfolding of the full moon energy, so emotions are likely to be sensitive and overflowing. You might even over think or analyze issues, so move slowly. CAPRICORN sun signs feel uneasy stress factors. Take many deep breaths and the day will move forward.

Mar 07: The moon in LIBRA is for emotional action. The full moon gave that tremendous support. If you are unhappy, I am sure your boss, partner or family will know about it by days end. ARIES sun signs should manage those tempers and impulsive actions. Tension is high in the evening making any impulsive moves unwise.

Mar 08: DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME BEGINS! Mornings are energizing but THIS morning might have many waking with sleepy eyes. The moon is in LIBRA again and does give good energy to complete tasks...but still...the time change may create an energy drain and cause many to feel a bit irritable. ARIES sun signs may just enjoy today!

Mar 09: The moon moves into secretive and deeply emotional SCORPIO at 9:10amET. There are no major aspects to cause stress today other than adjusting to the time change. TAURUS sun signs are practical and seek security. Today will work for that. There is tension in the air in the afternoon and that could upset the apple cart. Overall, not a bad day.

Mar 10: The moon is in SCORPIO Today may be quite challenging. There are aspects that could bring world news into play in a big way. This could create rumbling in the markets and war rooms. ARIES and CAPRICORN sun signs, along with CANCER and LIBRA are pushed to the limit. GEMINI actually manages today but does feel the energy drain.

Mar 11: The moon is still in SCORPIO until 3:46pmET then goes VOID until 7:30pmET. It then moves into SAGITTARIUS, the truth seeking sign. This is likely to be a stressful day for most, if not all, sun signs. There is just too much quirky energy in the air to pinpoint who feels what. There could be sudden explosions, i.e. volcanoes, or perhaps an earthquake. Government leaders may be faced with difficult choices. IMPULSIVENESS must be controlled as the energy is touchy and could erupt unexpectedly.

Mar 12: The moon continues in SAGITTARIUS and MERCURY shifts into PISCES. Thankfully a change in thinking may support more compassion and kindness. The creative arts are highlighted now. There can be a back and forth going on throughout the day but in the end, it will come together for a solid end.

Mar 13: The moon is again in SAGITTARIUS until 7:11pmET when it is VOID until after midnight. Religion, foreign countries, colleges/universities are all highlighted today. If you can, read a book, see a documentary, reach out to those who live far away and daydream. GEMINI sun signs might want to just go see a movie! With Saturn stationing retrograde tomorrow, the energy may feel agitating or annoying.

Mar 14: The moon entered CAPRICORN early AM. SATURN stations RETROGRADE. Capricorn sun signs AND the house of your astrological chart with Capricorn on the cusp will now receive a slowed down energy to allow time for reconsideration of all matters ruled by that house. In addition, generally speaking, government and government employees will be effected in some way. It is time for a review. Banking and financial institutions could also feel this as a challenging time. Now is the time to review budgets, personal and business AND government.

Mar 15: The moon in cool and calm CAPRICORN will provide a good day to tackle outstanding tasks. Work hard today and you will be using the energy wisely. CANCER sun signs may feel like they cannot be family oriented or "homey" today. If you engage the family in the tasks, then all will be great! There is angry energy approaching now.. keep the peace. Depending on the time zone, the notes for tomorrow could start today.

Mar 16: The moon moved into VOID at 4amET but quickly enters AQUARIUS at 6:15amET. This is a tough day for the most part. There could be volcanic eruptions, earthquakes or sudden transportation problems, communications may cause social media to crank up. The energy is unpredictable and volatile. Be careful in handling explosives. If you are a mine worker, make sure all precautions have been taken to ensure the safety of everyone. LEO sun signs should exercise caution in all activities.

Mar 17: Happy St. Patrick's Day! The moon is still in AQUARIUS - a friendly, humanitarian sign. VENUS is moving into TAURUS today and brings the likelihood of overeating/drinking to the forefront. Be careful. Enjoy this GREEN day but do not overindulge. Double check any party plans for this evening as the moon enters VOID at 2:18pmET. Delays and cancellations are likely.

Mar 18: The moon starts the day VOID and then quickly moves into PISCES at 6:58amET. Other than the tendency to have deception all around, the day is rich in creativity. See a movie today. Play with children. Be aware the energy is now beginning to overflow in preparation for the solar eclipse on the 20th. VIRGO sun signs need to withdraw and be quiet.

Mar 19: The moon is in PISCES and it is quiet. The energy is high for the solar eclipse but this is the calm before the storm maybe.

Mar 20: SOLAR ECLIPSE in Pisces at 29degrees. This occurs at 5:36amET. This is also the day of the Spring Equinox as the Sun enters ARIES. The moon was in PISCES until the eclipse then quickly moves into aggressive ARIES joining Mars and Uranus. Watch for water events, oil spills, fuel problems, unusual snow, chemical issues, flooding, celebrities and hospitals in the news!

Mar 21: The moon is in ARIES until this evening at 6:51pmET when it enters VOID. Today is likely a "come down" day. Put the pieces back together today and be ready to move forward. LIBRA sun signs feel drained and "poked".

Mar 22: The moon in TAURUS at 6:40amET brings a sense of the practical into play today. Use it wisely. This is a great day for hair cuts. Do not make major purchases today if you help it! LEO sun signs feel cramped.

Mar 23: The moon still in Taurus until 10:24amET when it is VOID for the rest of the day. This is a slower paced day and gives time to rest. If possible, plant some flowers or work with the earth in some way.

Mar 24: The moon enters chatty GEMINI at 9:22amET. Daydreaming is a great way to spend the day! Creative work is favored. Although there is disruptive energy late in the day, overall this is a good day.

Mar 25: The moon in fickle GEMINI find today to be perfect for getting together with friends and family. Watch indecision. VIRGO sun signs may feel held back in some way today - maybe you simply have to struggle to get it together today.

Mar 26: The moon in GEMINI goes VOID at 8:35amET until this afternoon at 3:45pmET when it enters CANCER. The conversations decrease and the heart and mind focus on home and family. Tonight is a good night to stay home and enjoy the company of those you love.

Mar 27: The moon continues in nurturing CANCER. Watch the tendency to over indulge today. That includes going over the top in helping someone else. Everyone has a path and it is fine to lend support, but make sure you do not try to solve the problem. The stock market may rock back and forth for a short time today.

Mar 28: The moon is still in CANCER for the day. It enters VOID at 9:58pmET. Everyone seems more sensitive and emotions overflow. Be extra understanding and caring today and the rewards will be a happy evening! CAPRICORN sun signs feel overwhelmed with all the mushiness!

Mar 29: The moon enters LEO early AM right after midnight and is in LEO all day. This is Palm Sunday. The energy is more settled. Enjoy music, movies, sports today. Romance is in the air. AQUARIUS sun signs stay out of the limelight but enjoy the social activities.

Mar 30: The moon in LEO starts the day but quickly moves into VOID at 9:57amET and remains VOID the rest of the day. MERCURY moves into fast thinking ARIES this evening. Early morning finds a certain sweetness in the air that promotes kindness. On another note, money markets are shaking and enjoying the ride. With two money bag planets holding hands this could be record breaking day.

Mar 31: The moon starts still VOID until this afternoon at 2:12pmET when it moves into VIRGO. MARS moves into TAURUS and enjoys this fellow earth sign moon. Today is a day for analytic thinking..for details...for organization. A lot can be accomplished this last day of the month so enjoy it! PISCES sun signs might even find it easier to finish tasks today.

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.

SATURN: March 14th - August 2nd
SATURN represents the father figure, the authority and rules government, time, the elderly, banking and structure to name a few things. It has the reputation of being tough and bringing hardships and challenge. There is some truth to this if you are floundering or need direction! When Saturn retrogrades you are given a chance to review policies, rules, commitments, etc to see if any changes need to be made to improve your business, your life, your relationships. If used wisely, this can turn out to be a very positive thing even if it was difficult to do. Delays in government are common when Saturn is retrograde. If you are a CAPRICORN sun sign or have CAPRICORN ascendant/rising sign, you will sense that things are slowing to give you the opportunity to fine tune your direction. Saturn does this long retrograde every year. This year it will have some assistance from Uranus in fellow air sign ARIES so it will not be felt as a slowdown for many but rather a push for defining what is happening in your work and life. This is a positive way to use the energy.

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 face-lift, 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 September 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 August, an adjustment will be made. More on that in the August forecast.

Saturn in Sagittarius until December 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 December 2015 it will have retrograded back to 16 degrees Aries from 20. If you have a planet in your astrological chart at 12-20 degrees Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn, Uranus will energize that planet sometime in 2015. Libra sun signs born October 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 January 2-7, April 2-7, July 3 -9 and October 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!
