March Monthly Astro Forecast!
by Rubys Readings
March is going to come in like a lion with some pretty intense astrological energy coming in!
This also gives us an opportunity to work on our physical well-being as we move through this month very quickly. There are two Full Moons this month and two planets going Retrograde as well. This last Full Moon that just occurred March 1st, has brought our attention to what we need to heal, simplify, and purify in our lives as the Virgo energy is trying to help us keep a balance in our everyday lives. So continue on this path even after this event is done and over, as you might have learned a lot of important information to use.
We’re still under the watery, dreamy Pisces “Stellium” energy for a few more weeks but it is going to start breaking up here in the next few days slowly, as one planet at a time will slowly shift into fiery Aries and life will be very different. But our attention remains on how we choose to love ourselves and take care of our spiritual health for now, so if you haven’t been taking care of your spirit you have a little bit of time left while we are still in “Pisces Season” until March 22nd! So get to it, zen out somehow, maybe take long walks, practice yoga, meditate, start writing in a journal, join a spiritual group you can learn from, just do whatever you can to work with your spirit, because think about it, that’s the one part of you that’s with you long after you leave this place!
Jupiter goes into its Retrograde phase on March 9th in the sign of Scorpio through July 10th! When Jupiter is Retrograde we should take the time to review our life, ideals, visions, and belief systems. And this year the theme will be around our personal values and our personal integrity! Since Jupiter is in Scorpio there will be issues brought up about our own personal power or lack thereof, obsessions and addictions, and our moral compass. So we will have an opportunity to examine how we feel about our beliefs over the next 4 months, and things won’t be the same once this is over, as many of you will change something about yourself in one way or another.
The New Moon is on March 17 in the sign of Pisces, this influence helps us reconnect with our subconscious mind and better understand the deeper truths about ourselves. Pisces is the very last sign of the Zodiac, it is where we dissolve back to the waters of consciousness and return to source energy! During “Pisces Season” we have an opportunity to cleanse the negative energies from this last Astrological year, so over the next three weeks make sure and get rest and make this a time of healing, reflection, rejuvenation, and spiritual replenishment. Pisces is a mutable water sign, so this New Moon helps support us as we make major shifts on a soul-level to realign ourselves and flow with the energies around us. The New Moon teaches us that if we can let go of our resistance and judgment we can be more compassionate, forgiving, and accepting.
Then we have to deal with mental Mercury’s slow down, as it goes into RETROGRADE for the first time in 2018 on March 22nd in Aries.
I don’t know about all of you, but this has seriously already started for me! While Mercury is Retrograde in Aries the energies heat up as Aries is a cardinal fire sign, which means movement! Get ready, you’ll feel charged up and can get more easily agitated and aggressive. This influence tends to cause us to be more impulsive, impatient, and mouthy! We act fast without much forethought, and can get into trouble if we don’t pay attention! It also can cause unexpected problems if you’re not careful. There will be a new line-up of planets shifting into Aries energy throughout March, it’s going to be very important starting the first week of March to learn how to breathe and think before acting to avoid mistakes and accidents, as the fiery Aries energy starts to kick in.
March will also see another second Full Moon, so it is a Blue Moon as well!
A Full Moon occurs on March 31st in the sign of Libra. Under the Full Moon in Libra, our focus shifts onto our relationships! This is about how we balance out our lives around our partnerships and remain independent at the same time. This energy brings up issues around giving and receiving, but it also helps teach us all about getting what we want without sacrificing our own dreams and values.
