March 4th New Moon
This exciting New Moon features a Pisces line-up emphasizing mystical Neptune. The New Moon makes an inconjunct to a solitary Saturn, so that the polarity of the mystical and the practical is very much with us all month long. Jupiter in Aries squares Pluto and Uranus hovers on the brink of entering Aries, there to join Jupiter and square Pluto over the spring and early summer. We have many oppositional tendencies coming into play in our personal lives and the divisive nature of American and world politics is likely to continue.
March 12th First Quarter Moon
This is traditionally a time of testing when we get to examine what in our current process stemming from the time of the New Moon is viable. Tension is in the air, and Jupiter begins to oppose Saturn as it continues to square Pluto, indicating the loss of faith in ourselves together with conservative empowerment. Relationships are brought forward and take on a serious cast of mind, since Venus enters into a trine with Saturn. Uranus – newly in Aries – amps up the action with unexpected enlightenment and reminds us that the best moments in life are often unplanned.
March 19th Full Moon
This Full Moon again takes place in the last degree of its sign. An out-of-sign T-square to Pluto implies that massive change continues to make itself known. The Sun is also less than two degrees away from Uranus in early Aries, so that surprises continue and even magnify. Jupiter and Mercury conjoin and almost exactly oppose Saturn, leading to a potentially joyous attitude of mind that is simultaneously serious in nature with all the joyousness squelched out of it. The best of this condition is a sober optimism while the worst is a loss of faith in ourselves altogether.
March 20th Spring Equinox
This powerful configuration is a time that totally emphasizes the trickster god that is symbolized by Uranus, since the Sun in conjunction with the Aries point, also closely conjuncts volatile and surprising Uranus. Epiphanies abound.
March 26th Last Quarter Moon
This is traditionally a time when the accumulated wisdom of our process comes alive to our meditative inquiry as we mull over the successes and the failures of the previous three weeks of the cycle. The Sun is now in Aries and close to the Jupiter-Uranus midpoint as it is squared by the Moon in Capricorn conjunct Pluto. Revolution is available to all those who are ready and many who are not. Enthusiastically brilliant ideas continue to arrive, although the best time for action on these comes a week later, with the Aries New Moon of April 3rd. This powerful New Moon will start the month of April with an even more exacerbated version of the preceding month of changes, and it will be wild.
