Get ready for the month ahead with this complimentary report on the energy for the collective March 2020!
Venus moves into Taurus on the 4th of March. Venus rules over Taurus and is known as the planet of beauty, love, and harmony. During this transit, we can expect ourselves to notice and recognize the beauty around us more. We will stop to smell the roses on our morning run, we will follow the smell of the freshly baked bread from the bakery, and we will want to buy all the beautiful art we see! We will allow this transit to let us notice the beauty in the physical environment around us more, as well as in other people.
Mercury in retrograde motion will move into the fixed air sign of Aquarius from mutable water sign Pisces on the 4th of March until the 16th. Others might question the beliefs we hold onto, and this can cause us to start examining and changing our own opinions. Why do we believe it? Is it because we were told to, or because it is the truth? During Mercury retrograde in Aquarius, let go of your preconceived beliefs and open your mind to new things.
There will be a Full Moon in Virgo on the 9th of March. With the Sun in the whimsical sign of Pisces and the Moon in the more practical and realistic sign of Virgo, there will be a push and pull between what is our fantasy and what is our reality on this day. During Pisces season, we will receive a lot of spiritual insight through our intuition, visions, and dreams. The Virgo Full Moon is a day where we have to take the ideas given to us and put them to practical use. It is great having all this spiritual knowledge, but how are we going to make something out of it? The Virgo Full Moon will bring us closer to this awareness.
The Sun enters Aries on the 19th of March. Aries is the 1st sign of the zodiac and is the start of a new astrological cycle, and it is also the start of the Spring Equinox. The Sun here signifies new beginnings and a fresh start! We will feel the energy flowing through our veins, and we will explore the excitement pulsing on our blood! Unique, great things tend to start happening during Aries season, and during Pisces season, we would've said goodbye and ended some of our projects. Aries season is the ideal time to let go of our old habits and to set new ones. Try and do some purging of mental and physical clutter; we will need the space the new things that are heading our way!
There will be a New Moon in Aries on the 24th of March. This day will be a great time to take action on the ideas we have. This New Moon is unique, as both Aries and the New Moon represents the start of a new cycle and new beginnings. Aries also represents initiating energy, taking charge, and taking action! On this day, we will want to take the steps needed for us to start our new cycle. We will do what we need to do to get where we need to be.
Mercury returns to its direct motion in Pisces on the 16th of March. Pisces is Mercury's fall position. When Mercury is in Pisces, we tend to think more with our hearts than with our minds. Pisces can be a challenging placement for Mercury, as Mercury is a planet that relies on logic and reason, and not emotion. On the plus side, with Mercury in Pisces, we will be able to take in and process spiritual information a lot easier. During this transit, it will be ideal to look into and learn spiritual teachings and to focus on the inward as opposed to the outward. The shadow period for this Mercury retrograde will end on the 30th of March, so although we might notice things becoming a bit more clear and back to normal after the 9th, be mindful and aware of the after-effects of the Mercury retrograde still affecting us until the 29th of March.
Saturn enters Aquarius on the 21st of March. Saturn spends around two and a half years in a sign, and we experience the effects of its transits quite powerfully over this long period. Saturn hasn't been in this position since 1994. During this transit, we are more willing to step into unknown territories and explore new innovative ideas and ways to build the future. In the past, we might've been skeptical or feared certain things, now we approach it with an open mind. This transit lets us focus less on the normal, "usual" way of doing things, especially in the workplace, and we restructure how we go about completing our tasks. During this transit, we look into how we can do things so that it is fair for everybody in this world.
On the 30th of March, Mars will move into the innovative sign of Aquarius! Mars is the planet of war and action, and Aquarius is the sign of freedom. With Mars here, we will stand up for and fight for our freedom! We will want liberation and will not stand to take any form of oppression. During this transit, we want to say our say, and we want it to be heard and recognized. We also know exactly what it is we want, and we do not want anything else!
