March Horoscopes

by Henry Seltzer


The Astrology of March is powerful, and features two important retrogrades: Mars and Mercury, along with the archetypal energies of Chiron, Uranus Neptune and Pluto. The red planet, still retrograde in Virgo, gets back to almost the beginning of the sign by the end of the month, heading toward its direct motion on April 13th. Mercury also retrogrades this month, from March 12th to nearly the end of April when you take the period of the retrograde shadow into account. We can expect a more deeply meditative and internal time than the usual Mercury retrograde, because Mars is also retrograde in mutual reception with Mercury, and because the mist of numinousity represented by Neptune and the sign of Pisces is so greatly emphasized by the recent Pisces New Moon from February 21st.

Pluto is also highlighted this month, at the time of the mid-month First Quarter Moon, when there is a huge Grand trine in Earth signs that includes Pluto in Capricorn. The initial stages of the Mercury retrograde period that begins a few days prior also emphasize Pluto, with Mercury squaring Pluto and in close conjunction with Uranus. The forming square of Uranus and Pluto that important world transit aspect that gets progressively more and more intense throughout the spring and early summer is therefore brought to greater consciousness at precisely this mid-month time. This presages a greater awareness that we have seen thus far regarding the radical transformation and evolutionary or even revolutionary series of insights that are necessary to allow this culture to thrive as it emerges into the 2020s.

The numinous quality of Neptune, together with the crucial accompanying reliance on Spirit as a significant guidepost, is also quite powerfully constellated now. This is because Neptune was closely conjuncted by the powerful New Moon from the 21st of February which also closely aspected Uranus. The present month will see a repeat of the spacey qualities associated with the ruler of the oceans, combined with the more frequent occurrences of synchronicity that are the specialty of Uranus. Just as throughout February, we will find surprising enlightenment at every turn if we can only open our eyes to see it.

Meanwhile Mercury, after the 11th, begins its retrograde; so that the last two thirds of the month exhibit the usual symptoms of deep introspection, missed connections and mechanical breakdown. Since Mars is also retrograde, this is exacerbated by the factor of the mutual reception between them. Also, during the early part of its retrograde period Mercury will aspect retrograde Mars, as well as Uranus, Chiron and Pluto. Insights will be paramount and supplant action as the most important mode in operation. At the March 14th Last Quarter Moon there is a powerful Grand trine in Earth signs between Venus conjunct Jupiter, retrograde Mars, and Pluto. This phase is normally introspective in any case, and it may well be that during this mid-month period we will be getting down into the deepest places within us, perhaps to a part of ourselves that has been wounded in the past, and attempt to work with these deeper parts of ourselves in a constructive and practical manner.

The March 22nd New Moon in Aries, coming just a few days after the Spring Equinox, also represents an exciting juncture, since very near the Aries point and in conjunction with unpredictable Uranus. The New Moon forms a yod formation with retrograde Mars and with Saturn, retrograde in late Libra, making a bridge for practicality and yet heralding even greater frustration with forward motion. Uranus also is semi-sextile to the Neptune / Chiron midpoint. Epiphanies prevail. This is all and all a very exciting month and one that will be redolent of new understanding regarding where we are in our personal lives and as a collective; thus providing insights that are sorely needed at this climactic stage of our turbulent decade.
