March 2016 Astrology

2016-02-12 14.44.59

It’s going to be a month of endings and beginnings. The astrological year ends on March 19 with the last degree of the zodiac and begins on March 20 with the Sun’s entry into Aries, the time of the Vernal Equinox. There are two eclipses this month that further this theme of endings and beginnings, of having to decide when to let go and surrender and when to start off in a new direction. The Solar eclipse occurs on March 8 at 18 degrees of Pisces. This is a powerful eclipse as it is near Chiron and the South Node of the moon. Look to where that degree falls in your birth chart and you will see where you must consider if you are holding on to something or someone who no longer fills your needs or harms you in some way. The Lunar Eclipse occurs on March 23 in 3 degrees of Libra. You need to examine the same issue in the context of your relationships.

Saturn stops and turns retrograde at 16 degrees of Sagittarius. He will travel backwards until mid-August. He asks you to appraise your actions from September until now and choose which ones to continue.

March 1 – Moon in Sagittarius. Keep your options open, as this is not the time to make permanent decisions. Look for opportunities, and there will be many since benevolent Jupiter now rules both the Sun and Moon. Choose the path of growth, not limitations. Make plans to travel.

March 2 – Moon in Sagittarius. You may want to goof off and go exploring. The things you find will be very useful to you later on. Follow your intuition as to where to go and what to look up. It’s a day for unusual pleasures. Break out of your routine and treat yourself to something you don’t usually do.

March 3 – Moon in Capricorn. You want to get as much done today and tomorrow as you can. Next week is colored by the solar eclipse and nothing will go as planned.

March 4 – Moon in Capricorn. Stay up late and get it all done. Finish old projects and get all your paperwork in order.
