General Predictions for March 2019

Crystal Oracle Affirmations for the month for all 4 Elements:

For Aries, Leo and Sagittarius: Crocoite: A new creative phase is about to begin!

For Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn: Moonstone: I am blessed with many new and rewarding friendships!

For Gemini, Libra and Aquarius: Amethyst: I am free to embrace my shadow!

For Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces: Labradorite: I let go of my fears and move forward quickly!

March promises to be an interesting month as it starts with Mercury slowing down in preparation for its Retrograding cycle. Personally, I find the “storm” or gray phase more challenging than the retrograde itself (March 5-28). Even bigger news involves Uranus moving into Taurus, where the Universal Rebel will stay for 7 long years!

Let’s look at the areas that may be affected. Mercury will be going back and forth in Pisces, the sign of its debilitation while meeting up with Neptune, meaning doubling our confusion and even possible accidents. 

Because Mercury will be conjuncting with Scheat, the Fixed star related to water accidents and weather, I recommend avoiding unnecessary air travel when these two are linked together. The exact meeting takes place on March 7th. I would say March 7-14th is not a great week for Mercury-related areas.

On the positive side, here is a great opportunity to focus on spiritual matters or study the metaphysical realm, art, music and creative expression. Overall, do be wary of gossiping and gossip.

Don’t panic, there are some wonderful opportunities as well- in particular on March 15th. You can send love messages or pitch that creative idea quite successfully.

I’m sure I will be writing more about the Uranus in Taurus transit, but here are my thoughts for now:

Most astrologers agree we will have to deal with a new reality in the areas of food production, banking, money, currencies and land. While some predict a complete collapse, others point out to opportunities for transformation. I think there may be both. Clearly, we will have to wait and see, since most of us are not in charge of external factors. We can, however, be prudent in the areas we can control.

The first weekend in March brings forth areas ruled by Capricorn and Aquarius. Practical, business and a material focus may clash for our need for personal freedom, detachment, and innovation. Yes, the rebellious Aquarius energy will over rule Capricorn’s search stability; however, don’t get rid of useful relationships and financial constructs just because you feel like it.

Capricorn, Aries and to a lesser degree Cancer and Libra: watch your nerves on Saturday. Aquarius and Taurus may get into it on Sunday. I recommend getting some exercise and drinking plenty of water.

The first full week in March is full of changes and surprises. Mercury stations direct on Tuesday and Uranus leaves Aries on Wednesday during the New Moon cycle. 

Wednesday the 6th is a most exciting day for Pisces, Scorpio and Cancer. Don’t do anything rash - just hang back and observe for a few days.

Friday is made for work, responsible action and mature relationships when Saturn sextiles Venus. Capricorn and Pisces benefit.

The weekend is blessed by Mars and Neptune, what I call Spiritual Warrior energy. Taurus matters (finances and tangible resources) flourish. This is a lovely day to catch up with friends over brunch!

The week of March 11th through March 17th continues a positive trend related to getting things done. Several aspects involving the Sun offer opportunities to solve long standing problems, expand our field of expertise and knowledge, and above all, act in our own best interests with integrity. The signs involved include Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces and Gemini and towards the later part of the week, lucky Cancer. This is the energy of stability we’ve been looking for. Work on your health, your career and finances now. Here’s a good example of Mercury Rx acting for our benefit. Communicate wisely; stay curious, friendly and energetic. Enjoy an amazingly fun Sunday. Pisces and Leo need to be careful with alcohol.

The following week contains the Full Moon in Virgo and the Spring Equinox. Monday is a powerful day for Leo when the Moon in their sign is super active. Stay calm, act with forethought and avoid overspending or overeating. The Sun in the 29th degree of Pisces calls for caution.

The Virgo Full Super Moon signals a change of season as the Northern Hemisphere experiences the start of spring and the Tropical Sun moves into Aries. This is the last 0 degree moon of the three. It’s time to conclude negotiations or leave unproductive situations and/or relationships.

I like it when Mars and Pluto get along, since these two cause lots of havoc when not in a harmonious aspect. The Earth and Water signs are golden. Aries, Sagittarius and Leo get protection from Jupiter.

On Thursday, Venus is the planet to watch. First, we have an intense square between Venus and Mars, meaning watch out for love-related confrontations, angry outbursts and confusion with sex and true affection.

Friday is a special day when the Sun makes a rare contact with the asteroid Chiron, the wounded Healer. Ask yourself: what do I need to balance, what am I hanging on to? There is healing magic in the air and it has to do with looking at yourself with loving and compassionate eyes.

On Sunday, take a long walk by the water weather permitting or take a personal day involving therapeutic bathing and spiritual work. 

March’s last week involves changes of signs for both Mars and Venus and Mercury moving Direct. The areas making the news are communications, travel, commerce, finances and relationships.

Venus leaves cerebral, detached Aquarius for her sign of exaltation, Pisces. We are blessed with capacity to forgive and love. Just make sure you know the difference between what’s real and what’s illusion and wishful thinking.

On March 27th, Mercury moves forward; I’d wait a few days to sign important documents or contracts. Capricorn, Aries, Libra and Cancer: if you feel tense or irritable, you may bring on a nasty headache; so heads up, slow down!

A gorgeous Venus/Uranus sextile can bring on exotic or unusual new partners for early degrees of Pisces and Taurus. The last weekend in March highlights the signs and areas related to Capricorn and Aquarius.

Mars leaves earthy Taurus and enters airy, nervy Gemini. Life speeds up, just be careful to take your time and avoid scattering your energy uselessly. I highly recommend walking, meditation or an early morning breathing routine until mid-May.
