March 2-8, 2016


For All Signs:  March is an eclipse season this year.  The new Pisces moon of the 8th and the Libra full moon of the 23rd are both eclipsed.  In ancient times eclipses were believed frightening, heralding negative omens, especially in regions of their visibility. Contemporary astrologers now perceive these seasons as periods that relieve critical mass, similar to that of a small earthquake. For many of us this month there will be an experience of manifestation or illumination about situations that have been long brewing. It is a time to face facts, but not all of those facts are frightening or negative. Some people experience very positive results of past effort during eclipse periods.  The Pisces Moon of the 8th is not visible in the US except for Alaska.  In this sign a new spirit is born to each of us, an opportunity to follow a new spiritual path.  

Aries:  During the months of May-June your attention will be drawn to career and life direction.  Activity in the outer world picks up speed.  Authorities and others may be challenging, so have your ducks in a row if you take initiatives.  Use this time to improve your "product" or your presentation.  

Taurus:  This is a time of revelation for artists.  An idea may strike you, seemingly from nowhere.  The reality is that the idea comes from your rapid processing of collective processes.  You may capture a piece of the culture and focus it into your work, almost without thought  

Gemini:  You are somewhat edgy and irritable this week.  Parts of your mind are scattered into so many corners that it is hard to pull everything together.  You know clearly where boundaries need to be drawn and you are not hesitant to do so.  The best of verbal warriors is concise and says what is needed, but no more.  

Cancer:  The eclipsed new moon on the 8th of March is in your area of the law, ethics, people at a distance, education and publications.  This opens  a “season” in which these areas come into focus and call for your attention.  Your belief about what is “right” could be in conflict with your values.  Ponder this until the solution becomes clear.  

Leo:  A new plan that originated in December is arriving at a turning point.  Sometimes our ideas take a twist of their own.  This is a time in which you must decide whether or not to pour more resources into the plan or let it go.  Generally speaking, though you would rather not have the problem, you probably will choose to see it through.  

Virgo:  This looks like a week in which you really want to say your piece, but you have a sense that would be a bad idea.  This is correct if you feel so upset that you can’t present your case with a clear rationale.  If you organize your thoughts and present them without hesitation, you could accomplish an improvement.  

Libra:  This is a good time to experience a new type of activity with your lover or partner.  Go somewhere different together.  Make an effort to try out new restaurants or change the usual ambiance as you are together.  Don’t just sit and watch TV, particular if that is what you usually do.  Play!  

Scorpio:  Mars, your ruling planet, shifts your attention to fresh territory.  During the next twelve weeks, your activities and feelings will be intensified in the life sector related to vehicles, short distance travels, politics, communications, education, your neighborhood, and siblings.  Use caution while driving because your accelerator foot may be a bit itchy.  

Sagittarius:  Mars, the red planet of war, enters your sign this week and will be traveling with you for twelve weeks.  This energy will be combined with Saturn so you are likely planning to start a big project this month.  Move carefully and check yourself for errors along the way.  These few weeks it is especially important not to make mistakes.  

Capricorn:  The Goats live always with a strong internal critic.  Sometimes it is louder than others and it rarely tells the whole truth.  During this period you may be hearing a dark "tape" about your inability to organize your life according to the standards of the world.  Take good care of your physical health now.  The physical cycle is weakened.  

Aquarius:  This may be an expensive period and likely involving “not fun” costs.  Repairs are on the horizon.  The problem(s) may require more than you have on hand at the moment.  Hopefully, you have kept up your credit and can access it if necessary.  

Pisces:  During December you began the initial steps of materializing your new life direction.  At this point you arrive at a significant turning point.  There is the possibility that you could turn back toward the known and security.  The more life-giving option is to pour more of your resources into the new tack.
