March is a month with two New Moons, aspect which contributes to the creation of positive energy, energy that in turn leads to new beginnings. Several planetary forces may slow things down, thus offering you enough time to ponder upon the nature of your inner self and your dreams.
The first New Moon – which took place on March 1st – represented a major energy boost that aided us all in dealing with internal changes and also in achieving personal goals. Up to this point, March has provided a fertile environment – so to speak – for everything and anything related to personal development to grow and to propel us into a brighter, happier future.
However, you may notice that most of your plans and ambitions are actually on a slow start. This is partially due Mercury’s influence, so don’t be too harsh with yourself if you feel that no matter what you do, things simply don’t budge. Go with the energetic flow and take this time to reflect upon yourself and to visualize your goals.
This month you may have to learn a few lessons about feelings, emotions, and relationships. Looking back on your past experiences in this life area, you will discover new things about yourself which will help you end a conflict with a dear one, and thus grow and mature. Working on emotional changes will provide you the feeling of a ‘fresh start.’
Under the influence of Saturn, you may find that it is wise to create a back-up plan for some of your goals. More work is required on your part in order to develop your commitment and ideals, reason why you may feel that your faith is being tested during this period of time.
Speaking of self-reflection, you will most likely have to reconsider your belief-system and values. It is time to let go of self-destructive thoughts and attitudes which have prevented you from living fully and in alignment with who you know you truly are. This month try to be more confident and courageous in your approach to any task. Keep in mind that what may seem unbearable challenges during the next few months have the potential to become valuable life experiences provided that you embrace change and are trust the unknown.
March ends with a major burst of energy on the 20th of March, when the Vernal Equinox occurs. This is also the date which marks the passing of the Sun into Aries (a new astrological year begins). Your finances and material resources become the issue which requires most of your attention. The New Moon in Aries occurs on the 30th of the month. This is the perfect time to set goals for the future.
Overall, Mach is a favorable time for developing new ideas and for looking into new financial opportunities. However, take caution when signing contracts or making other such important decisions because of several planets turn retrograde, thus greatly influencing the outcome of your actions and decisions.
