March Full Moon
Mercury Retrograde in Aries
March 22nd – April 15th
The first Mercury Retrograde for 2018 starts on March 22nd at 4 degrees in the sign of Aries. Mercury in Aries brings in a fiery mental energy, as Aries is a Cardinal and Fire Sign. We tend to feel more impatient and impulsive during this time, and we can jump without thinking about our consequences first, which can get us into some trouble very quickly, or cause some unexpected problems, as it has become notorious for missed connections, miscommunications, malfunctioning electronics, travel snafus, fender benders, and more.
When Mercury is Retrograde our thinking is thrown off, as well as our perspective. So mistakes, misunderstandings, and problems involving communication are likely. It’s not a good time to sign contracts, make new agreements, buy something new, or begin new projects. It’s an excellent time to research, revisit, plan, and prepare for something later. Remember Mercury likes to take us back literally when it’s in Retrograde, so back to old friends and lovers, and even behaviors and lessons, to learn something we didn’t the first go around.
Since Mercury is in what’s considered to be the most impatient sign of the Zodiac, Aries! This particular Mercury in Retrograde is difficult when it comes to having any kind of patience! I can’t stress this enough. People have already been experiencing the impulsivity, frustrations, and aggression out there over the last three weeks while we have been under the “Shadow Period” as it’s called to the actual Retrograde cycle!
Please be extra careful during this cycle, and watch for other people and how they react and drive, they aren’t thinking clearly under this influence. Aries energy can be prone to accidents and injuries because of the impulsive energy so we may see some accidents occurring around the world, especially involving situations where we didn’t take care of details beforehand. To think we started off this Mercury in Retrograde cycle with an 800-Ton Walkway Bridge falling in Florida because it was built in less than 9 hours! That’s just way to fast during this time, as someone forgot an important detail.
We also need to watch our tempers!
It’s way to easy to get bent all out of shape and frustrated, and enter ego-battles or arguments during this time, without even realizing how we got there! This cycle brings out more aggressive behavior due to feeling confused, and it can serve as an outlet for folks to release their pent-up emotional baggage. Stay focused on your goals and what you want to conquer during this three-week-long period, and put your attention on something positive so you can direct that extra energy into something you need or want. It also is a time to watch your mouth! Remember, Mercury rules our minds, and Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, ya know the GOD OF WAR! We can wage little battles that can turn quickly into bigger issues if we aren’t careful about what and how we say things. Just remember that losing a battle is sometimes the only way to win the war. Keep your language short and sweet on this wonderful day.
With all of that being said, I want you to know you are not doomed to fail if you make important changes or moves during Mercury in Retrograde, but it can cause more issues that you will have to go back over and get extremely detailed about which can be time-consuming. Making changes doesn’t seem to be as successful settled for the future during a Retrograde period. And it can be more difficult to make a plan stick. During a Retrograde period, it’s just more tough to get decisions made from others and even if a decision is made, it is subject to change, either just after Mercury turns direct motion or much later.
Often I find that when we have to redo things during Mercury’s backward cycle, we also get rewarded with something that we didn’t realize we could even have, for all our hard work and frustration there seems to be a pay off more often than not! I was born during a Mercury in Retrograde phase and this happens to me often, where I have to redo something I swore I was done with and even though it is extremely frustrating the rewards I can’t deny are awesome, as long as I am patient enough.
Mercury in Retrograde periods aren’t the best times for communication or clarity, because our thoughts are scattered and we tend to forget what we are talking about, but we might think we know for sure what we are seeing or saying so we can be very convincing, but it’s a time to question everything because things just aren’t what they appear to be during this cycle. Starting anything that involves communication like a new website, turning in important papers, or making business agreements, for example, can be a big fail. It’s a confusing time to launch anything new, even if it’s not related to communication period.
The world doesn’t choose to live by Astrology influences, unfortunately, so often you will see lots of website overhauls and new systems being put in businesses, and road construction everywhere! Even though this is a challenging time to do so, it seems to work out that folks feel like making changes under the Retrograde time, so you just have no choice but to roll with it. But perhaps the changes that are made now will have been gone over again and again due to the Retrograde cycle and that helps them get it right, who knows, but look for lots of interesting new changes this time around especially as the sign of Aries is all about initiating change and starting new beginnings. Avoid it if you can, I promise you will end up going back over it soon after and having to redo something, and maybe even again and again. The environment will be quite fluid and changeable, no matter what you are told or what you think.
But all we can do is roll with this cycle folks and be patient as possible with each other, that is the most important part of this whole cycle over the next six weeks actually, is to work hard at being PATIENT! Then you can avoid major issues or breakdowns.
The Sun is changing signs from emotional, sensitive Pisces to faster-moving, fiery Aries on March 20th where it stays through April 19th. In Aries, the energy is more enthusiastic and spontaneous. There’s a strong desire to conquer in this energy, as we tend to bounce back much more quickly and can be brave, pioneering, and even somewhat innocent. With the Sun in Aries, we can be quite impulsive and act without consideration of the details, as we want to initiate something. Our personal goals become very important and there’s a strong urge to move forward and get things done during this cycle.
When it comes to getting what we want we can be quite direct and blunt! So things aren’t always as complicated as long as you don’t let your feelings get hurt. Even though we are more strategic if need be, we aren’t necessarily in the mood to plan ahead simply because we aren’t too sure what our next move will be as we seem to live in the moment under the Sun in Aries. This is the time to initiate something by taking the lead and making your own path. We feel and notice our gut instincts more so under this influence, so listen to them and pay attention because we’re all going to be moving at a much faster pace now. Because with the Sun in Aries life just moves faster, and now that mental Mercury, Venus, Uranus, and Chiron are all in this Sign it’s a great time to be productive, so go with it!
This is the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the energetic turning point from one season to the next. This is the “Spring Equinox”, this energy is extremely potent and makes for a great time for “Setting Intentions” just like you would under the New or Full Moon!
As the seasons change a gateway opens where we experience the light and dark energy, which is the connection between spirit and matter. This makes it a great time to think about what energies you want to draw into you. Ask yourself what you want to manifest in your life next? Of course, we all want to be healthy and have lots of money, but this is a time when we should get more detailed when making our “Intentions” or wish lists, and don’t’ forget to add some realistic goals as well.
Take some time over the next few days to sit down and breathe, and then ask the Universe to bring in what you need and choose; Do you choose happiness? Yes, of course, you do, but around what situation and in what way? Write out some details about what you want. Do you want to buy a house or find a soulmate relationship? What do you need to move forward towards your goals? Write it all down and make it perfectly clear to the Universe what it is your asking for under this amazing energy! And then don’t forget the most important part, take some time to close your eyes and FEEL what’s it’s like to have your wish, goal, or desire, that’s the way to bring it in, just thinking about what you want might bring something to you, but usually if you didn’t choose to also FEEL it, it will go away! POOF!
The Sun is changing signs from dreamy, sensitive Pisces to faster moving, thicker-skinned Aries on March 20th, where it stays through April 19th. In Aries, the energy is more enthusiastic and spontaneous. There’s a strong desire to conquer under this energy as we tend to bounce back much more quickly and can be brave, pioneering, and even somewhat innocent. With the Sun in Aries, we can be quite impulsive and act without consideration of the details, as we want to initiate something. Our personal goals become very important and there’s a strong urge to move forward and get things done.
A Full Moon is almost here, it will come together Friday morning around 12:34AM CST.
*Full Moon Guide* By Ruby
“How does the ‘Full Moon‘ affect you, and how do you utilize this potent energy? ”
During a ‘Full Moon‘ you have an opportunity to bring about some positive results in your life. If you use the energy wisely, it either can increase the positive energy around you or it can be an emotional wrecking ball, the choice is yours. This guide is a helpful reminder, about how to work with the ‘Full Moon‘ and it energies.
Remember a ‘Full Moon‘ disperses a lot of energy, and that energy pours into each and everyone of us. So the key to achieving success during a ‘Full Moon‘ is to stay calm, and embrace it’s positive effects. Whatever is going on with your mind, body, and spirit will certainly be felt much stronger during a ‘Full Moon,’ every emotion can seem much more intense.
A ‘Full Moon‘ energy is very powerful, so it’s important to direct it and stay focused with positive intentions. We’ve all heard of of how the ‘Full Moon‘ causes chaos such as filled up emergency rooms and bad crime. Scientists have proven the ocean literally swells during a ‘Full Moon.’ Humans are made of up to 70% water at least. Water represents and seems to rule our emotional well-being, so think about how the Moon’s energy or gravitational pull is affecting each and every one of us, literally from the inside out. Do you realize how much power you have if you stayed focused and use the ‘Full Moon‘ energy to send out positive intentions, (thoughts around your wishes and desires) just think about what kind of miracles you can actually manifest here in the physical world! Ah-Ha! Isn’t that amazing!
The ‘Full Moon‘ energy is both intense and loving. If you are aware you have an opportunity every month for both emotional and spiritual growth.
Here are some tips to follow during the ‘Full Moon‘, this can help to bring in more positive energies … which is believed to be two days before and two days after the ‘Full Moon‘ becomes exact.
1. Don’t allow arguing and don’t get angry!
The Full Moon is a time to stay calm, breathe deeply and let things go. Try breathing through the moments that are difficult and be forgiving. If you just can’t let something go and must express yourself, try writing it down or telling a friend how you’re feeling, and wait for at least a few days after the Full Moon to share these feelings. Everything is going to be more intense and amplified. So just keep the energy flowing and moving in a happy, more uplifting direction.
2. Think positive thoughts!
During the ‘Full Moon’ you have very powerful, strong energies working in your corner. So if you can balance your emotions and focus on positive thoughts, they’ll be energized and multiplied. If you just spend even a short amount of time upon waking and before going to bed visualizing what you truly desire and what’s good or positive in your life, and be thankful for your blessings … it’s like magic!
For example, write a gratitude list and some thank you notes to the Universe. Take walks and take in the beauty that is around you. Look in a mirror and say positive affirmations to yourself, (yes this really works.) Visualize positive thoughts and/or desires being sprinkled with “Moon Dust” and watch them grow like flowers in a garden.
3. Visualize your Dreams manifesting.
The ‘Full Moon’ is the right time to do any manifesting work. So sharpen your techniques by using your imagination to set goals. Take the time to write down what you want to manifest. Make a Vision Board, get pictures of your goals, be it the actual goal or the word and place them on a cork board, make a collage … and hang it up on a wall, where you can see it everyday. This puts it in your constant awareness, and helps the energies come to you. When you spend time focusing on your dreams and goals, or setting intentions during the ‘Full Moon’ it will give that energy an extra boost.
4. Practice Meditation alone or with others.
The ‘Full Moon‘ pours out so much energy, that meditating during it can create a calmness and stillness that is profoundly strong. Finding a sacred space to practice meditation can help tremendously. There’s a lot of groups that meditate during a Full Moon, so look for Spiritual groups, centers, or online groups that come together to meditate. It can be very powerful healing and manifesting work.
5. Send others blessings, be of service, practice acts of kindness.
Having this powerful energy at your disposal, makes a Full Moon the opportune time to pay it forward! Send healing energies, forgiveness, white light energy out… out to everyone you can think of, including strangers. Send loving and kind energy to your friends and family. Then go deeper and send peaceful energy out to the world, think of the places in the world that are experiencing strife, hardships, poverty, or war. This can open doors for those who are in need, and provide you some positive karma in return.
I hope this guide can help you over the next two to three days handle the powerful energy of the Full Moon in Scorpio!
Have a Blessed Full Moon
