The Astrology of March features Mars with Saturn, Neptune, Chiron and Uranus. Mars is very prominent now, being at its closest point to the earth and standing almost still in the sky, still retrograde until the 10th and remaining in sextile to Saturn which is still in early Libra. The Spring Equinox takes place on March 20th, when the Sun enters Mars-ruled Aries, from which we get the meaning of the word "March." All nature participates in a very Mars-like leap forward at this time. But it's a terribly slow leap in the case of this particular March, since Mars remains at almost a standstill in the sky and stays in sextile with Saturn all month long, within a degree through the first 25 days. Mars with Saturn is similar to the retrograde of Mars: things move more slowly and with deliberation and introspection. What we do commit to requires more effort, but the results are also longer lasting.
Neptune and Chiron, getting closer to the end of Aquarius, are also prominent in March skies, since both Mars and Saturn make an inconjunct to Neptune and Chiron's conjoined degree from early Leo and from Libra, creating another prominent Yod, or finger-of-God, formation. This is similar to what we saw last month with Mars at the time of the AquariusNew Moon. It means that the spiritual dimension represented by Neptune, which includes a large dose of confusion regarding true motivation, is still very much present for us right now. This becomes intensified with the March 15th New Moon, another powerful mid-month configuration involving this time a Pisces lineup of five planets. The New Moon almost exactly conjunctsUranus, at less than a degree of separation, with Mercury squeezed into the middle and Jupiter nearby. This all makes for a very wild and crazy month, especially during the latter half, following that intense and volatile mid-month moment. We are enjoined to follow our dreams, wherever they might take us, no matter how improbable, and no matter how much of a departure they might be from consensus thinking. It is timely, for action of an idealistic kind is urgently needed if we are to collectively awaken and begin to pull our civilization out of its steep dive. The evidence can be seen all around us – and with increasing clarity – as this pivotal year continues to unfold.
In April, Saturn, dipping back into Virgo, will once more exactly opposeUranus in late Pisces, and in mid-May oppose both Uranus and Jupiter as they come into close conjunction. By the end of May we have the entrance of Uranus into Aries where it will also squarePluto in the famous "Cardinal T-square" that is the hallmark of our era. This second decade of the 21st century, "the teens," is very likely to become as well-known for societal change as "the sixties." Following the preliminary alert of March, these next three months, April, May and June, constitute a one-two-three punch that will have the effect of an extreme wake-up call for the whole society. It is of course in another way quite surprising that the existing data has not served as a wake-up call already, but perhaps the alarm clock has to get a bit louder before the great mass of people will hear it. This next stage will probably involve greater suffering, as that seems to be the only way that we learn here on planet earth.
In this current month of March we can begin to see that we are on the edge of a precipice and that our social grouping will soon begin to go over it like lemmings. The information becomes more available and so does the alertness of mind to perceive it. We need only to let go of the past to get a jump on the powerful changes of this spring and summer, but that of course is more easily said than done. The most significant time this month will be the days between the electrifying New Moon on the 15th and the exciting entrance of the Sun into Aries on the 20th, where it will opposeSaturn and squarePluto. We might begin to see, during this middle week of the month, the writing on the wall of change. It is a bleak picture that emerges, but perhaps a joyful one as well, as the necessary pruning operation finally begins to commence.
