With all planets direct, two New Moons, the next chapter in the Mars/Venus relationship, and the astrological New Year, this is a big month of forward movement, change, and just plain making stuff happen.
Reminiscent of January, we start the month with a New Moon in Pisces on March 2nd and end with our 2nd New Moon in Aries on March 31st. As always, to see how these will impact you personally, look at which houses fall in Pisces and Aries in your chart. Our first New Moon is especially powerful because itâ€™s only two degrees from Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck. This means we have support for manifesting our biggest intentions. Aim high and launch that passion project youâ€™ve been dreaming of.
While the first New Moon takes place in the energy of dreamy, creative, psychic Pisces, the second happens in impulsive, assertive, make-it-so Aries. This Moon is making a couple of interesting aspects. First, it is two degrees away from Mercury, making it a very good time to talk to people about your ideas, write up plans, put ideas into action. But, the New Moon will be in a difficult relationship with Black Moon Lilith, the point in the astrological chart where the moon is farthest from earth. Lilith represents our shadow side, or more importantly for how it relates to setting intentions, it represents the desires we keep hidden. What have you wanted to do that youâ€™ve stuffed, either out of fear or negative beliefs? Expect those concerns to come up. But during the New Moon, we might set the intention of finally releasing these limiting thoughts, so we can move forward with our plans. Nay-sayers be damned!
The Moon goes full on March 18th in the sign of Virgo. This is a time of culmination and letting things go. Virgo is all about analyzing, paying attention to detail, and even fault-finding. Allow this Full Moon to support you in letting go of that over-thinking that can hold you back. This month is about moving forward with gusto, so release doubts, nagging thoughts, and the tendency to find fault with your own plans. It could also be a good time to let go of old ideas about health and wellness that no longer serve you.
Despite all this lunar energy, the Moon isnâ€™t actually the biggest player this month. On March 2nd, Venus, Mars, and Pluto all stack on top of each other in serious Capricorn. Pluto is all about deep transformation and bringing whatâ€™s been hidden to the surface. The union of Venus and Mars, the celestial lovers, with ruler of the Underworld, Pluto, impacts relationships as well as business matters due to Capricornâ€™s input. Then on March 5th, the romantic twosome remain in each otherâ€™s embrace as they cross the boundary into Aquarius. We can expect a period of coming together with people, acting on plans involving partnership, and for anyone exploring online dating, the Aquarian focus on social connections and technology might just bring a match thatâ€™s fun and quirky.
On the 19th, weâ€™re going to experience Mars and Venus a bit differently, as they form a difficult aspect to Uranus, the planet that shakes things up in the most unexpected ways. Mars is impulsive and strong-willed. Venus rules money, love, and beauty. Both of these are going up against Uranus. Expect the unexpected in Venusian areas of life, and brace yourself for your own bold actions that might seem to come out of nowhere. Get ready to have your foundations in the areas of love and money rocked for about a week.
Then itâ€™s astrological New Year on March 20th when the Sun moves into Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac. (This doesnâ€™t mean Aries is your first house. Only a chart based on the time, date, and place of your birth can provide that information.) On this day set your yearly intentions, just like we do on January 1st. Itâ€™s a perfect time to make vision boards or journal about what youâ€™d like to accomplish this zodiacal year.
March 2022 brings lots of forward-moving energy. So get out there and make some stuff happen!
