New Moon: March 1st in Pisces - 10 degrees
Full Moon: March 16th in Virgo - 26 degrees
New Moon: March 30th in Aries - 09 degrees
Worldwide, the energy gives us new opportunities, new directions, new ideas and projects. It requires independence and the willingness to stand strong. The first weekend of March has an overload of energy with a New Moon, Jupiter moving forward and Saturn moving backward all right after Mercury stationed direct on Feb 28th. It gives new meaning to the comment about March that it “comes like a Lion and goes out like a Lamb”. Unfortunately, we have a very strong New Moon occurring at the end of the month also on the 30th. It is assertive and action oriented.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR for APRIL: The eclipse in APRIL is in Libra at a karmic degree. MARS transiting in Libra will moving close by. PLUTO will be stationing to return to direct motion within days of this eclipse. It will push powerful energy in the direction of URANUS, MARS, and JUPITER and will even involve MERCURY as it will be moving through the sign of Aries in April. With Mercury involved with this group, it opens the door for events involving transportation, communications of all kinds, unpredictable earth changes, volcanic eruptions, strategies involving military and weather related crises. Disruptions could also involve electronics, software glitches and satellite failures. Saturn in Scorpio will support the Sun in Pisces until April 20th. That is positive and may help leaders make solid choices, or keep “water” under control. What an April we are going to have. Perhaps those U.S. tax returns need to be submitted before April. Plan ahead now.
Planets Chaning This Month
MARS will retrograde on March 1st in Libra at 28 degrees, slowing down its energy until Mid May. Use the time to review what has been happening since early Dec. Be ready to implement the changes in late May.
JUPITER turns direct on March 6th in Cancer at 10 degrees. This is GREAT news for Sagittarius sun signs. Legal issues/activities with Cancer sun signs now move forward. There is harsh energy between Jupiter and Uranus and could push some unexpected events involving eruptions and/or stock market ups and downs.
SATURN stations retrograde on March 2nd in Scorpio at 23 degrees. Saturn rules the sign of Capricorn so those born under this sign may see their forward movement delayed or held back somewhat. Government is also ruled by Capricorn so there may be some delays in getting legislation pushed through especially involving drugs, death and drilling.
MAR 1: NEW MOON in PISCES at 10 degrees. Watch for news of a discovery that will be health related. Also, weather could be a headliner over the next month with water (ice,flooding,etc) playing a big role. Oil and chemicals of all kinds may be in the news during the month thanks to this new moon energy. Today specifically, the energy is yucky as Mars stations retrograde in the afternoon creating a tidal wave of energy. Ride the wave. We definitely have powerful energy starting the month and we will have powerful energy ending the month as well! Along with this is the uneven energy from Saturn preparing to retrograde tomorrow. Things will settle down in a few days. Virgo and Libra sun signs feel the bumpy energy more directly. Scorpios are not happy with Saturn transiting in Scorpio and the list goes on.
MAR 2: SATURN stations retrograde in Scorpio 23 degrees. The moon is VOID from 6:04amET until 10:40amET when it moves into ARIES. The mood is challenging mid morning and again mid afternoon. It is best to keep feelings to yourself for another day or two. With high energy from the past two days and the planetary changes, it would be best to count to ten before you make any decisions. With the moon in assertive Aries, you might just step on toes you will later regret.
MAR 3: The moon continues in ARIES giving us a rough start to the day. By late morning the energy calms down and a lot can now be accomplished. This is a good day for physical exercise as long you use moderation. Any blood tests drawn today may have to be redrawn. Libra sun signs feel pressured to make decisions.
MAR 4: The moon still in ARIES until 12:31pm when it enters VOID for a short period until 2:12pm when it slowly moves into steady TAURUS. The morning and lunch timeframes may be grumpy but then it eases as the day goes on. Be careful with drinking and eating. Moderation is key otherwise you will have regrets! Now is the time for Scorpios to shut their wallets. They do not appreciate the desire of the Taurus moon to buy expensive items!
MAR 5: Moon in TAURUS gives us the desire to have nice things… hair, nails, car, house, MONEY IN THE BANK, etc. Make sure you do not overspend today as it is common when the moon is in Taurus to overspend, overeat and overdrink. Scorpio sun signs feel out of sorts. Tomorrow will be a better day.
MAR 6: The moon enters VOID at 8:55amET for an ALL DAY VOID energy. Confirm all appointments. Those that do happen..exect the unexpected as usually things do not go as planned when the moon is VOID. There are delays, rescheduling, even cancellations. Allow the day to unfold naturally while expecting the unexpected! At 9:37pmET it will enter the youthful and talkative sign of GEMINI.
MAR 7: The moon in GEMINI sparks phone calls, emails, text messaging and generally “gossip”. It is an excellent day to enjoy youthful activities and reach out to friends. Do this instead of daydreaming which will be easy in the morning. If you find yourself not being able to decide on a particular issue, wait until the 9th… the decision will come quickly then. Sagittarius sun signs like to act versus talk so this might be of a draining day for you.
MAR 8: The moon continues in GEMINI and affords us another day to play, to talk, to create. Communication gets a boost of energy – just be careful you do not “overtalk”. Remember the times changes overnight to Daylight Savings time. Tomorrow morning will come one hour earlier.
MAR 9: TIME CHANGE TO DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME Happy Birthday Steve! The moon is VOID from 3:53amET until 9:33amET when it enters the home and family sign of Cancer. Feelings are generally very sensitive during the month when the moon is in Cancer. There is a tendency to want to be with family, cook at home, garden, and/or nurture others. This is a good time for that so enjoy.
MAR 10: The moon in CANCER again today but it has some pretty rough waves of energy. The first will be early morning and the second wave is closer to midday. Headline news has the spotlight regarding a prominent femaile or a public protest. Overly sensitive feelings need to be calmly dispersed. Capricorn sun signs are over all of the emotional dramas and want to just get down to business.
MAR 11: The moon continues in CANCER until 3:50pmET when it goes VOID until 10:09pm when it then enters the playful and ego sensitive sign of LEO. Early morning and late night will feel uneasy. In the AM there could be communication problems, i.e, satellites, cable, hacking, etc and then late evening could be just an exhaustion energy. Go to bed early, especially Aquarius sun signs!
MAR 12: Happy Brithday Bonnie! The energy is still in the “kingly” sign of LEO. After mid morning the it is an uneventful day energy-wise. There could be some rumblings among leaders/bosses, but other than that, the day should be a good one to play, sing, dance, sing on the throne! J Aquarius sun signs find the energy too theatrical, so they might do well taking a walk in nature.
MAR 13: The moon is still in spotlight loving LEO. It is overall a quiet day with only a crunchy time around 8-9pmET. Enjoy watcing a movie, TV show, or maybe seeing a concert.
MAR 14: The moon shifted at 3:24amET into VOID until 10:17amET when it enters the sacrificing sign of VIRGO. In the wee hours of the morning there could be disruption to sleep or maybe transportation issues you learn about when you wake. The late evening also holds “foggy” energy where dreams meet reality. In between, things could really seem too cranky. Meetings scheduled for today should go well but may be “picky” in the details. Pisces sun signs should turn up the music and open a good book.
MAR 15: The moon still in hypercritical but excellent at details VIRGO. It’s time to get hair cuts, cars washed, clean house, straighten files at the office, manicures, etc. A good day to accomplish so much. Keep smiling and keep those criticisms to yourself! The energy is high due to the upcoming full moon. Use it wisely and carefully. Pisces sun signs might want to withdraw for a few days as the energy is a bit too critical.
MAR 16: FULL MOON at 1:08pmET in VIRGO at 26 degrees. It then goes VOID until this evening at 8:46pmET when it will enter the strategy sign of LIBRA. This is felt a few days before and/or after this date. Emotions will tend to be more in line with helping others, sacrificing your time for others. It is also an energy that calls us to action. Get those task lists out and start checking it off! Be especially particular about anything involving fianances.
MAR 17: ST PATRICK’s DAY! The full moon energy is still unfolding today. The moon is in LIBRA and stirs the pot for negotiations, balancing and compromise. With MERCURY entering Pisces the thoughts are more creative and compassionate. With angry energy late afternoon, it is best to limit conversations and stick to your work. Aries sun signs feel like caged tigers.
MAR 18: The moon is still in LIBRA until it goes VOID at 9:07pmET. The energy is evening out. Take a deep breath and enjoy the day. The full moon energy is settling.
MAR 19: The moon enters SCORPIO at 5:13amET. The mood is more introspective and distrusting. Probing of mysteries and uncovering secrets seem fitting for the energy. Harmonious aspects provides a calmer tone. Intuition is heightened.Taurus sun signs are “poked” to accomplish, accomplish!
MAR 20: The moon continues in SCORPIO and adds to it the Sun as it moves into the action oriented sign of ARIES. Early morning is poky, giving way to a nicer day overall. Taurus sun signs feel tired and frustrated. It will pass quickly, hang in there. The moon will go VOID late at 11:11pmET
MAR 21: The morning opens with a VOID moon until 11:39amET when it enters blunt speaking SAGITTARIUS. Many Sagittarius sun signs love to travel, learn from other cultures or somehow have something to do with the law or politics. Today is like that.. a mixture of energies supporting any or all of these topics. The day is calm but the early evening has harsh energy tha couls create misunderstandings in conversation. It might be best to keep it a movie night.
MAR 22: With the moon still in SAGITTARIUS, Gemini sun signs feel a bit overwhelmed. Gemini sun signs attempt to be politically correct but the Sagittarius sun signs are usually very black and white and can even be “too blunt”. The day has harmonious energy so perhaps these two signs can meet in the middle today.
MAR 23: The moon is VOID from 6:40amET until 4:03pmET when it will enter cool CAPRICORN. During the day it might take a firecracker to get you moving but by late afternoon, there is a push to get things done. Go with the flow during the day. Allow yourself some down time.
MAR 24: The moon in CAPRICORN can sometimes be felt as unemotional or too stern. In fact, the Capricorn energy is so focused on being responsible and doing the “right” thing that it simply seems that way. Capricorn sun signs take their responsibilities very seriously (unless they have planets in their chart that say otherwise!) and are people you can depend on to get the job done. It is not the best day to stand before a judge, however, as there is usually very little compassion shown. Reshedule if you can! Cancer suns should watch romantic movies alone!
MAR 25: The moon enters VOID early at 8:35amET and remains VOID all day until 6:39pmET when it gladly moves into friendly AQUARIUS. The energy loosens up and friendly smiles appear. Have lunch with friends. Be careful with electronics as the energy may overload today. Leo sun signs whimper because the spotlight is shining elsewhere.
MAR 26: The moon continues in social AQUARIUS and with no harsh aspect, this is a grand day. Enjoy the outdoors, weather permitting. Join a club. Talk to your friends. Help out someone who is in need.
MAR 27: The moon is in AQUARIUS early and quickly at 9:13amET enters VOID again all day until 8:10pmET. Expect the unexpected today. Stay on top of the news. Be very careful you do not injure your lower legs. Wait until afternoon to install new computer software. Once the moon enters Pisces tonight, all will calm down.
MAR 28: The moon in PISCES brings a soothing calmness. It is like a cool rain after a very hot day. It is a wonderful day to paint, write, create, follow your intuition, have a massage or see a movie. Enjoy the day and remember to count your blessings. Virgo sun signs may feel today is a waste of time! Be aware the energy is already building for the New Moon on MAR 30th. It is a strong new moon and you may already feel some of that energy today.
MAR 29: The moon enters VOID at 9:44amET and AGAIN stays VOID all day until 9:54pmET when it enters ARIES and prepares for the new moon tomorrow. Gosh, there are a lot of ALL DAY VOID MOONS…setting the stage for a lot of unexpected happenings. At the very least things just will not come down the way you expect when the moon is Void. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it can require rescheduling, etc. The energy is smooth all day until late afternoon when there is a huge bump in the energy field. Be very careful with all bank accounts, credit cards, etc. Check them to make sure all is well.
MAR 30: NEW MOON at 245pmET in ARIES at 9 degrees. The energy Is HIGH and AGGRESSIVE. Be very careful handling fires, explosives, weapons, knives, anything that is sharp or can burn/explode. There could be volcanic activity that is in the news. Most of the strong energy occurs in the afternoon and evening. Work diligently in the AM to accomplish what you can as the afternoon may find you focused on world events. Libra sun signs might want to sit this one out. Be patient and quiet.
MAR 31: The moon is still in ARIES. The New Moon energy is still swirling and the currents are being felt. This energy will create challengs midday before finally moving into VOID at 4:07pmET. We are now moving toward a LUNAR ECLIPSE (full moon) April 15th. The New Moon energy of yesterday introduced an energy (Assertive,impulsive,’fiery”). By the Lunar Eclipse in April we will know what it is about for ourselves and the world. Be aware of all the things that have occurred around the past few days…. They are messages of changes coming in April. Energy approaching seems to be engulfed in fog….. deception, secrets, hidden agendas? April will be interesting.
Eclipses in 2014
Apr 15 – Lunar Eclipse in Libra 25 degrees
Apr 29 – Solar Eclipse in Taurus 8 degrees
Oct 08 - Lunar Eclipse in Aries 15 degrees (Powerful energy)
Oct 23 - Solar Eclipse in Scorpio 0 degrees (Intense energy)
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.
Mars: Mar 1 - May 19 in Libra Mars has been in Libra since the end of last year. It is not happy in Libra and now it is bogged down with the retrograde. Mars is about action and assertiveness. It does not hesitate to make decisions. Think of our fire fighters. They have to make spontaneous decisions based on the danger of the situation. With Mars retrograde until, it allows time to “go back over” actions/decisions we have made since Mars moved into Libra last Dec. Think about it and be ready to make changes or simply to put everything in drive once Mars turns direct in May. Keep in mind, Libra is about balance, harmony and is a mental energy. Mars is action, spontaneous and self oriented. We need this slowdown!
Saturn: Mar 2 - Jul 20 in Scorpio Saturn is the teacher, the task master. It is a responsible energy. It rules government/officials. It represents the authority, the teacher, the rules. Where Saturn is transiting in your astro chart gives insights into the subject matter Saturn wants you to learn and also the area where Saturn is giving you support in the way of discipline and focus. If it touches a personal planet, that gives added meaning to the subject being taught or assisted
Jupiter: Nov 7 - Mar 5 in Cancer Jupiter rules Sagittarius sun signs and also the area of your chart that has Sagittarius on the cusp (if you know your chart). Sagittarius is the truth seeker. It rules higher education, religions, foreign places and people involved in legal decisions, i.e. judges. Many of the subjects Sagittarius rules will undergo review, change or simply be the topic of conversation and news.
Void of Course Moon(VOC or VOID)
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.
If the slower moving planets connect with one of your personal planets during 2014 (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars), energy will develop to bring about a needed event or change. So, 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 energize in 2014:
Mars is in Libra for the first half of 2014. It usually only stays for 6-7 weeks but will remain for months this time. Because of this, there are numerous opportunities for “war-like” behavior among not only countries, but even in personal and business relationships! This is because at different times from now until mid July, Mars will poke at Pluto and Jupiter and even unpredictable and volatile Uranus. This creates tension and events that rise and fall like a roller coaster ride. Uranus energy is unpredictable except for saying expect the unexpected and watch for sudden out of the blue developments including unpredictable events. In Aries, Uranus is forcing new paths. When it contacts Pluto or Mars or Jupiter there is ACTION. There will be a slowdown when Mars retrogrades in March until May. This will allow time for review of all that has happened since Mars moved into Libra at the end of 2013. Review carefully and be ready to act when it goes direct in May.
Jupiter is the fastest moving of the slower planets, staying approximately a year in each sign. At the beginning of 2014 it continues retrograde (began in Nov 2013) in the sign of Cancer. It will return to full strength when it turns direct on March 6. It will be at 10 degrees Cancer. In April 2014, it will make a powerful opposing aspect to Pluto. Watch April closely for mind blowing events set off by two powerful planets (and add Uranus to the mix!) Jupiter expands things and Pluto destroys or transforms them. The signs of Cancer and Capricorn represent nurturing and sensitivity and cool caution and discipline (home family/work responsibilities). Cancer sun signs may also have experiences with the law or legal matters as Jupiter represents those topics. Pluto represents death and rebirth. In Capricorn it works to transform government and government officials including the banking system. The year 2014 could see reforms within government or at the least with government leaders. Once Jupiter leaves the sign of Cancer midsummer and moves into Leo, the spotlight will shift to those who are leaders.
Saturn takes about 2.5 years to transit one sign. It is in Scorpio now and continues in Scorpio until December 2014 when it leaves and enters Sagittarius. Before it leaves Scorpio, it will retrograde back into the higher degrees of Scorpio for very short periods before leaving Scorpio finally in Jan 2015. Saturn’s energy helps us better manage our talents and urges. It can bring unexpected responsibilities or even a health crisis that requires discipline and focus to overcome. It is the COMMITMENT KING. Commitments made during a transiting aspect of Saturn to your personal planets have endurance energy initiated. Not bad 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 a Scorpio sun sign or ascendant OR a Taurus sun sign or ascendant. Scorpio is the sign opposite Taurus. This opposition touches the Taurus sun signs with Saturn energy also just not as intense as what Scorpio feels. It CAN feel oppressive having Saturn in your sun sign (or opposing it), but it doesn’t have to be felt that way. Saturn can also restrict us in some way, i.e. sprained ankle, sick, etc. 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. For the first half of 2014 Saturn and Jupiter are in a comfortable partnership. That will bring some “lightness” to the weight of Saturn.
Uranus in ARIES will continue transiting the sign of Aries moving from 8 degrees Aries to 16 degrees in 2014. It does retrograde during the year and in Dec 2014 it will have retrograded back to 12 degrees Aries. If you have a planet in your astro chart at 9-16 degrees Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn, Uranus will energize that planet sometime in 2014. Libra sun signs born Oct 3 – 10 will feel this energy as an opposing force. It is challenging but not as aggressively challenging as those born in the sign of Aries. You could suddenly quit a job, seek a divorce, change your hair style, or even decide to change residence 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 3 degrees to 7 degrees Pisces during 2014. It will be retrograding and back to 4 degrees by Dec 2014. It is very slow moving. Those Pisces born Feb 22 to Feb 27 or who have planets or ascendant at 3-7 degrees Pisces will be touched by this mysterious and shy planetary energy in 2013. Be cautious in business dealings and LOVE as Neptune energy can be evasive deceiving you before you know it. Neptune has a strong spiritual side and connects to the higher realms. It also rules all liquids and things like 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! 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 see your dreams come true.
Pluto in Capricorn will transit 11, 12 and 13 degrees of Capricorn in 2014. Those born the first 5 days of January will feel this transit more directly. Any planet you may have in your astrological chart that is at the degrees mentioned, 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. The same applies to those Cancer sun signs born the first week of July; or anyone who has Cancer planets at 11, 12 or 13 degrees. Because Capricorn and Cancer are action oriented signs, Pluto’s transit will create strong desires for action, not just thinking. Capricorn creates harsh aspects to Aries and Libra but if they use the energy to accomplish and keep irritations under control, they will succeed! 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 2014. The changes being made will be long lasting ones as Capricorn is cautious and responsible. 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 smooth.
Be blessed, always!
