Hello lovely ones and welcome to March 2017!
It seems like just yesterday that I was writing the February cosmic update talking about how 2017 was about to pick up pace and suddenly….whoosh…February is over and March is here!
Although the eclipses were last month we are very much still in eclipse season.
Soulstrology explains that eclipses are sometimes not felt at the exact time they take place and often it is a month later at the next full or new moon that the eclipses changes are triggered.
If you did not feel the impact of the eclipses in February it may well be that March brings the changes that can help usher you into a new chapter and season of life…
As you will recall the solar eclipse just a few days ago was in Pisces and is the finale of the Pisces/Virgo set of eclipses which started in March 2015.
Now just days later on March 4th, Venus (governing love, beauty, abundance and importantly, values) goes retrograde, at first in Aries and then in Pisces.
The cosmic synchronicity is truly a gift from the heavens.
Here we are with the sun in Pisces (ruling the 12th house in the natural zodiac) ending one astrological year and in just over three weeks the new astrological year begins with the sun moving into Aries at the Spring Equinox on March 20th.
At a time when each of us (regardless of our zodiac sign) is going through the grand finale of a big shift in the Pisces ruled part of our unique charts/lives and the cosmic spotlight is soon to be on the Aries ruled part of our unique charts/lives, Venus decides she is going to do a backwards dance and force us to reflect on our values in relation to the Pisces and Aries ruled areas of lives in both our unique natal charts and the natural zodiac.
Our value system and how we value ourselves (therefore our self esteem/self love) are the seeds of consciousness for almost everything we experience in life.
When we do not live in alignment with our true values, we are not aligned with our souls and therefore our lives will be out of sync and we will experience chaos.
When we do not truly value ourselves we cannot be truly valued by others.
Our love lives are a reflection of how much we love and value ourselves.
Our financial affairs are a reflection of how much we love and value ourselves.
We cannot life a life of true value unless we truly know our values.
Not society’s values, our families values or our peer group’s values but our unique values.
Fundamentally we cannot truly live a life of value and have our value reflected back to us by the universe unless we truly value ourselves and our values.
As we journey through the end of the astrological year and prepare to start a new one and embrace the sweet new beginnings of Spring and a new season of our lives, we must harness the energies of this Venus retrograde to delve deep into our values.
I will write more about Venus retrograde soon but in the meantime here are the main cosmic dates for your diary this month.
March 1st: Sun in Pisces conjunct Neptune in Pisces (dreamy, creative, romantic but also potential for deception/illusion)
March 2nd: Jupiter in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries (tense aspect but ultimately can have positive outcome)
March 4th: Venus goes retrograde in Aries (will post on this)
March 5th: Mars in Aries trines Saturn in Sagittarius (positive aspect for lasting action)
March 12th: Full Moon in Virgo (will write a separate blog on this)
March 17th: Sun in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius (tense aspect but can have positive outcome)
March 18th: Mercury in Aries conjunct Venus in Aries (creative, romantic aspect, look out for communications around this time)
March 24th: Mercury in Aries opposes Jupiter in Libra (tense aspect around communications in relationships of all sorts but can have positive outcome)
March 25th: Sun in Aries conjunct Venus in Aries (positive aspect)
March 27th: New Moon in Aries (will post a separate blog on this)
March 30th: Jupiter in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn (tense but positive aspect).
For now I am wishing you all a marvelous start to March.
May we both value ourselves and others and live a life of value and valor, this month and beyond.
