Faery Guidance for March 2021

The Faery of Growth
 









 

This wee Fae brings us through the re-visioning process. And I see many people going through such a time now. These past few months have surely brought about planetary energies that have been pushing us to make changes so we can grow.

She sits on a young green leaf like a bud that has just opened into a full flower. Growth can mean so many things. One thing it always means is movement and change. Growth doesn't stand still. Growth by its very nature is a constantly changing process. To stay in one mindset or one mode of being is to stagnate. If you move through life with an awareness of everything around you, you will grow. You won't be able to help it!

This Faeries presence calls for us to pause and think about how our lives are changing and how we can direct that change for the greater good.

From The Heart Of Faerie Oracle - Brian & Wendy Froud.

 
Celtic Tree Month March 2021

February 18th starts the month of Nion (Ash) - The ash features prominently in Celtic stories of enchantment, and is the symbol of the mythological “World Tree”, linking the Underworld and the Upperworld with everyday reality. It is therefore a tree of magical powers. The ash is also associated with healing,

March 18th through April 14th starts the tree month of Fearn (Alder) -
The Alder is the tree of fire and purification by fire. It is able to resist the decaying powers of water and can grow and flourish in the wettest of places; it is therefore a symbol of staying power, durability, persistence, and steadfastness. Its association with water also evokes the quality of emotional strength. Traditionally used for building boats and bridges, alder enhances the potential to cross over life’s oceans and rivers, and to overcome obstacles or doubt.

The Alder also represents the evolving spirit. The Alder protects in disputes helping you to see the real issues from the false. It is also useful in conquering of adversaries or difficulties, finding strength from within. The Celts would often name their weapons and credit them with magical powers. When feeling threatened, either physically and/or mentally, invoke the spirit of Alder.

Void of Course Moon Schedule for March 2021

It is said that when the Moon is void of a course it can cause delays, false starts and unexpected hassles. When the Moon is void of course it means that it is in the process of moving between two signs and is not quite sure how it feels yet. And since the Moon rules our emotions, we don't know how we feel either! The effects can last from a few seconds to a day or two. Energy can feel off balance and this is not a good time for making major decisions, signing contracts, or doing anything based on emotional decisions because our perceptions are a bit out of whack. The Void Moon begins at 27 degrees in one sign and ends at 3 degrees in the next sign.  Times given are for GMT.

What's New This Month 

Blessings everyone and happy March! I hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather we've been having.  I just hope it sticks around! I also hope we can start enjoying better days ahead regarding all of these Covid lockdowns.  I've been attempting to get my spring cleaning started since I'm not allowed to go out until after March 31st (shielding). This month we are celebrating the Spring Equinox/Ostara, St. Patrick's Day, the turning forward of the clocks, and Mothering Sunday. Day light savings begins on Sunday, March 10th in the USA & Canada, and on Sunday, March 31st for the UK.

Also, to honour the eclipses ahead, I have special readings that will help you tap into these powerful events.  All of these can be found in the   Monthly Specials section along with a few other inspirational readings to help bring balance into your life.  You can have a browse through the many specialized readings I offer on the  Tarot Readings page.  Tarot's Life Path & Personal Growth section is a good place to start!  Or take a wander through the various Oracle readings on my site, like Rune, Angel, Faery and Animal Totem readings.  All of these categories can be found on the main Reading Room page.  Don't forget to check out the other areas on the Readings page, like the Oracles, Rune and Animal Medicine Cards sections.

"Change Your Luck"

We've all heard people talk about 'The Luck of the Irish,' but what exactly is luck? Are some people born luckier than others? Why does it seem that some people get all the breaks while others do all the struggling?

The real truth is that there is no one person born more lucky than the next. Now, I know that some of you may be immediately up in arms about that. How dare I say that the child of a rich and famous couple is not luckier than the starving child in a third-world country? How can the cute and perky cheerleaders in the high schools be more unlucky than the homely child in hand-me-down clothing? Well, I'll tell you.

All of this stuff is just on the surface. We have to remember that we are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience. That human experience is here to help us grow our souls. Luck has nothing to do with it. It is all about awareness.

So, is there anything we can do to change our luck? Of course! It's nothing to do with lottery tickets, though! It has to do with mindset. Let me explain.

If we are always focusing on scarcity, then we are always going to see what we do not have and be sad that we do not have it. We will always feel that there is something more and that we have been left out in the cold from what everyone else has. This creates more scarcity in our lives -- because like energy is always going to attract like energy -- and that in turn is going to create misery.

To change this, it is really as simple as being thankful for what we have. The house might not be as expensive, but it still shelters. The car may not be as new, but it gets us from A to B. The clothing may not be the latest styles, but it covers us and keeps us warm.

The path to abundance is always paved with gratitude and appreciation. Is it luck? Probably not, but it is what makes the difference between how lucky or unlucky we perceive ourselves to be. Keeping a gratitude journal is a great way to turn things around, for it helps us to focus on what is going right and attract more right energy into our lives, than to focus on what is going wrong and attract more negative energy. As Mike Dooley says, "Thoughts become things; choose good ones!"

Mother's Day/Mothering Sunday - UK - March 14th

The correct name for Mothers Day in the UK is Mothering Sunday. Mothering Sunday is always the fourth Sunday of Lent however as the dates vary as to when Easter and Lent fall the actual Sunday chosen to celebrate it may vary. It is more often referred to as "Mother's Day" and it origin is distinctly different to Mothers Day in America although the sentiments are similar. In Victorian times, it was a day when children, mainly daughters, who had gone to work as domestic servants were given a day off to visit their mother and family. Today it is a day when children give presents, flowers, and cards to their mothers.

ST. PATRICK'S DAY - March 17th
St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17, his religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for thousands of years

On St. Patrick's Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink, and feast—on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage.

The first St. Patrick's Day parade took place not in Ireland, but in the United States. Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched through New York City on March 17, 1762. Along with their music, the parade helped the soldiers to reconnect with their Irish roots, as well as fellow Irishmen serving in the English army.

SPRING EQUINOX/OSTARA - March 20th

People have been marking and celebrating the Vernal Equinox for thousands of years. The Great Sphinx which was constructed over 4500 years ago on the Giza Plateau in Egypt, faces due east on the Vernal Equinox. The monoliths located at Stonehenge, which are estimated to be over 3000 years old, mark the position of the rising sun on the Vernal Equinox. In Central America the Ancient Mayan Caracol Tower and Temples of the Sun and Moon also have alignments that coincide with the sun’s position on the Vernal Equinox. As Spring reaches its midpoint, night and day stand in perfect balance, with light on the increase. The young Sun God now celebrates a hierogamy (sacred marriage) with the young Maiden Goddess, who conceives. In nine months, she will again become the Great Mother. It is a time of great fertility, new growth, and newborn animals.

The next full moon (a time of increased births) is called the Ostara and is sacred to Eostre the Saxon Lunar Goddess of fertility (from whence we get the word estrogen, whose two symbols were the egg and the rabbit.

The Christian religion adopted these emblems for Easter which is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox. The theme of the conception of the Goddess was adapted as the Feast of the Annunciation, occurring on the alternative fixed calendar date of March 25 Old Lady Day, the earlier date of the equinox. Lady Day may also refer to other goddesses (such as Venus and Aphrodite), many of whom have festivals celebrated at this time.

Star Transits For  March 2021


SUN TRANSITS


The Sun has been in Pisces since February 18th   
The Sun brings our qualities into clear and present manifestation. It strives to manifest its potential clearly and directly. However, pride can destroy the Sun's potential for achieving excellence. Pisces rules empathy, selfless love, devotion, and wisdom. Its shadow side rules self-pity, a feeling of being victimized by life, passivity, and elusiveness.

The Sun's entry into the last sign of the zodiac is a step into synthesis. Its presence in Pisces reminds us that the walls that keep us apart from one another are merely illusions. We are all one in the sea of consciousness where the Fishes swim. This oceanic state can be confusing, of course, since we rely on boundaries to maintain our individual identities. Rather than reinforcing barriers to sustain them or tearing them down completely, adding flexibility to the ego lets us seamlessly flow together and drift apart as desired. Reconnecting with spirituality, nature and one another are its sweetest rewards.

When the Sun is in Pisces, we turn inward. Through nurturing a personal, internal peace, we are more able to empathize with others and to reach out in ways we might not often allow ourselves. Pisces, an emotional and intensely compassionate Water Sign, tunes us into the feelings of others on an intuitive level: Subtle facial expressions or turns of phrase can speak volumes during this time. It is a tolerant, patient and sometimes overly trusting energy that, because of its Mutable quality, can take the form and character of the situation in which it finds itself. Pisces urges us to open ourselves up to the experience of interpersonal connectivity, but we must be cautious that our emotional honesty and availability do not get us into trouble. This sensitive influence can be taken advantage of and causes easily bruised feelings. Our will may be more brittle at this time, for we are feeling the emotions of others more acutely than ever.


The Sun in Pisces is a good time for:

  • Connecting on an intimate, empathetic level with others
  • Cultivating your creative instincts and talents
  • Daydreaming and paying attention to your subconscious


The Sun then moves into Aries on March 20th under the Spring Equinox 

The start of spring marks the beginning of the zodiac with the fiery sign Aries. Under this influence we are feeling a bit of excitement and an urge for new experiences and adventures. When the Sun is in Aries, we feel inspired to spontaneity, like we can do anything because we're absolutely indomitable. Since Aries is the first of the Zodiac, and therefore a youthful sign, this influence is one of child-like abandon and invincibility. Fire Sign Aries energy asserts itself actively, through engaging vigorously in life, regardless of the risk attached. Also, Aries is a Cardinal Sign, so you can expect to exuberantly start a million projects. Completion? Now, that's a job for some other sign. The Ram plows headfirst into obstacles and plans with a blind fury and passion, pursuing an objective feverishly but losing interest once the thrill of the chase wears off. During this time of Aries Sun, take advantage of all this get-up-and-go: Accept challenges for the sheer pleasure of trying to meet them.

The Sun in Aries is a good time for:

  • Enjoying the thrill of competition
  • Accepting a challenge
  • Helping others realize their strengths


MOON TRANSITS

 On March 13th have a Pisces New Moon
A New Moon is that it is all about new beginnings that come from a deeper and more spiritual level of our being. It's a good idea to take time and see where your philosophies don't measure up to your day to day life. 

When we have a New Moon we also have the Sun in the same sign, which is why these energies are so focused and potent. For those who do energy and spell work, the New Moon is the perfect time for setting intentions for the things you wish to create, cultivate, manifest and develop. Its energies differ from the Full Moon in that the New Moon looks inward. It is the void empty space between letting go of the old and waiting for the new, and this can be frightening for some. A Void is meant to be filled though and we need to not fill it with frightened and uncertain energies, but rather fill it with hopes, wishes and desires 

In Pisces, it's a good time to look at where we may be scattering our energies right now. We are not inclined to want to face reality while the Moon is in dreamy, impressionable Pisces. It can be a wistful, sensitive, intuitive, and compassionate time. We are especially imaginative, and our intuition reigns under this influence. Boundaries and walls come down, as Pisces energy merges and blends. It's a time when details are overlooked and feelings defy description. 

Your life takes on a kind of mystical quality at the emotional and instinctive levels now. Dreams and illusions, forgiveness, and understanding human frailties: these things arouse deep feelings. The past and the future intermingle, and the barriers between people dissolve - there is the key to the greater psychic and spiritual sensitivity you feel now. 

Things to do under a Pisces Moon: Imaginative undertakings, mystical or spiritual pursuits, inner development, music and drama, going on a retreat, activities involving water. 


On March 28th we have a Libra Full Moon
Full Moons are the best time for doing energy and spell work that is geared towards releasing something old or reaping the harvest of whatever seed you planted at the last New Moon. Creating order is the focus when in Libra, not necessarily through tidying or organizing as was the case while the Moon was in Virgo, but rather through pleasing interactions with others and aesthetics in our environment. We tend to solve problems through diplomacy, and we are more able to put aside our own emotions in order to achieve the peace we crave. The tendency now is to avoid direct confrontations. Decisions do not come easily. Seeing both sides to any given situation is the main reason for hesitation. Fear of losing others' approval is another.

The Moon in Libra generally favors the following activities: Relationship and partnership issues, activities involving teamwork and cooperation, activities that involve self-examination, activities related to beauty. Refinement and relationships are the keys to emotional satisfaction for you now. Harmony and beauty are deeply satisfying - and the lack of them can be emotionally unsettling. Close personal ties to other people are a focal point for your feelings - marriage and other partnerships could be a key arena for this. 

The Full Moon in balancing Libra will be in opposition to the Sun in independent Aries. And this can bring a face off between compromise and self-interest, coupling up or going it alone. This lunation arouses emotions about fairness and sharing that sharpen our understanding of relationships. Acknowledging personal desires is a good starting point for building healthy partnerships when it's balanced with an equal concern for the needs of others. 


Things to do under a Libra Moon:  mediating, negotiating a fair deal, restoring balance with a friend or family member, taking it easy, beautifying your home space, meditating, decorating, de-cluttering, throwing a dinner party, attending a lecture, visiting a museum, writing or editing, experimenting with fashion, indulging in luxury. 


PLANETARY TRANSITS


March 2nd - Mercury trine North Lunar Node (Mercury in Aquarius, North Node in Gemini) 
Today we have Mercury in a trine with the North Lunar Node. For those who are not sure what a Lunar Node is; There are two, the North and South. They are the points where the paths of the Moon and Sun meet, or intersect. The North Node is said to represent that which we are moving towards, the path we are currently walking in our lives, and the direction of our growth. Some refer to it as our path of Destiny. The South Node is our starting or pushing off point showing where we have been and what we need to release.

When we have a Solar or Lunar eclipse, this is the Full or New Moon taking place very close to one of the Nodes. The Nodes themselves are not physical objects like the planets and asteroids, they are considered sensitive points in our Natal charts.

Ok, back to Mercury and the North Lunar Node. This aspect brings us a fresher awareness as well as a better ability to communicate that awareness. It is a beneficial resource which can help us to take a few more steps closer towards our life purpose. Just bear in mind that we also need to take action too. We will need to, at some juncture, take into account what we have observed and do something with this.

March 3rd - Venus sextile Uranus (Venus in Pisces, Uranus in Taurus)
This is an unpredictable transit and can feel quite exciting for the social aspects of our lives. We may find that enjoyment pops up where we least expect it. Anything that breaks away from our routines will feel like a very welcome change. We want to interact with others who are off beat, interesting and just plain different from what we usually are attracted to. This is also a good time for standing apart from the crowd if you want to attract the types of people you wish to be around. Highlight your unique qualities and let them shine now. Oh, and do be careful that you don't allow boredom to push you towards doing anything too reckless.

March 4th - Mars enters Gemini
In Gemini, Mars is considerably more versatile and flexible--and considerably less determined and focused! Our interests become more diversified, possibly to the point of going off on so many tangents that we are scattered and ineffective. Gemini gives our warrior planet some space to roam a bit more freely. Mars' energies are more driven by mental activities and intellectual stimulation. And Gemini thrives on new ideas, visual stimulation, and social interaction.

When we see the darker side of Mars in Gemini, we see Mars taking up his words to use as weapons when he feels angry, so heated debates are no surprise under the effects of this transit. Mars in Gemini likes to take up multiple tasks and is ready to act. For any of you out there who have a lot of fire and air in your charts, any inactivity now could make you very restless and depressed. And if you have more water and earth in your chart, you feel stirred to activity but could feel some stress if there is too much disruption to your usual routine. Try to find a good balance that works for you.

March 4th - Mercury conjunct Jupiter (Both in Aquarius)
With Mercury conjunct Jupiter we can visualize in broader terms and see the "big picture". This could be a time when you have a strong desire to verbalize your own goals and ideals. Words flow freely but be careful not to exaggerate! Travel is favoured as well under this transit.

Curiosity has us picking up a lot of new information and we are more open to learning new things. Jupiter pushes us to express our ideas in creative ways. Using our talent for communications can also bring financial and spiritual rewards our way. The quest for knowledge expands our world and nourishes our curiosity now.


March 5th - Sun square North Lunar Node (Sun in Pisces, North Node in Gemini)
Today brings a challenging square between the Sun and the North Lunar Node. What’s a Lunar Node you ask? Nodes aren’t physical objects in the skies like the planets. We have two; the North Node and South Node. They mark those intersecting areas where the Moon and Sun cross paths. They represent sensitive points in our natal chart. The North Node represents the point in our life that is forward moving and our overall life lessons. Some even say that it represents our destiny. The South Node is that point in our life where we push off from and shows where we have been and what in our lives needs to be released.

Today’s aspect between the Sun and North Node can bring feelings of conflict between our sense of identity and purpose with the lessons we are needing to learn in our lives. It can manifest through situations where we feel we are being forced off course or forced to take a detour that is not as direct as our chosen road. That tends to make people feel uncomfortable but there is usually more to those detours than we realize. If we were to stop panicking over the detour and take some time to really look beneath the surface (whether presently or in retrospect) we will probably discover that this detour is actually assisting our sense of Self. It can bring benefits our way that we would have otherwise passed up or missed had we not taken that detour.

Some may find themselves confronted by dilemmas and conflicts at this time that causes stress and these are situations that we may normally resist. However, by not fighting these situations, we can gain a deeper understanding of our feelings and experiences if we let ourselves explore the situation a bit. When you stop for a moment and take a good hard look at your reaction to this kind of situation, what do you find behind it; resentment? Fear? Maybe a bit of rebellious defiance? Well this is your chance now to take a new perspective on the situation and try responding to it in a different way, a way that will allow you to move through the situation at hand rather than feeling blocked by it.

We may feel the effects of this Sun/Node transit for about a week and a half prior to, and a week and a half after this date. It can cause those areas that the Moon covers, such as our intuition, sensitivity and inner feelings, to feel unstable or out of balance.

March 9th - Venus square North Lunar Node (Venus in Pisces, North Node in Gemini)
With Venus in this challenging square to the North Lunar Node we may start noticing that the people in our lives are not giving us the encouragement and support we need where fulfilling our life purpose is concerned. We could run into situations where someone who was giving us support suddenly backs away. Or we find that their actions interfere with what we are trying to do.

Disagreements and upsets with others at this time could make us feel less positive about our life and if this is the case, we need to look a bit more closely at what it is that we are disagreeing about. We need to step back and ask ourselves if our responses to these things mirror our true values, or do we need to tweak our values at this time. Renegotiating our priorities in order to create balance may be needed as well. Venus also rules finances and resources so we could run into issues around possessions, resources and finances that call for adjustments now.

This isn't a very long transit, lasting only a few days. So the things we come across may not be major issues. But if something significant does rear its head at this time, it could be a sign that we have something that needs to be looked at more closely.

March 10th - Sun conjunct Neptune (Both in Pisces)
With the Sun conjunct Neptune it can be a time of heightened creative ability that allows us to that the unusual, unfamiliar, and little used resources of inspiration and channelling those into our self expression. It's not necessarily creative in an artistic sense but it will definitely involve taking a more inspired approach to challenges and problems before us.

This is also a good time for being creative, romantic, spiritual and intuitive. We do need to keep in mind that even inspiration needs a bit of work to bring the results we are after. Some may have a sense of profound faith in the abundance and blessings of the Universe. However, we need to not assume that we will be given everything we wish for. It's very easy to pick up vibes from our environment and others around us now, and this can become mixed into our own wishful thinking, which can make it difficult to determine where we stop and the rest of the world starts.

Our sense of self care can be blended with a sense of vision, giving us a “mission” in life and allowing us to really feel that we are at one with the Universe. This transit's energy will only be around for a few days so use it while you can, make the most of it and make sure that you are careful to make a reality check before you jump straight in to any magical opportunities that your way.

March 13th - Venus conjunct Neptune (Both in Pisces)

Venus/Neptune conjunction that began a new cycle which will bring certain issues to the fore that we will be exploring. It will gradually unfold over the next year. This transit brings dreamy desire and romance as well as deceptive manipulation and negotiations that are self-serving.

The positive side of this transit is that it can inspire a lot of creativity as well as healing faith in the areas of abundance and love. We are more open now to lofty possibilities around our closest of relationships along with our own abilities to attract to us who and what we want and desire. The problem here is that we need to have a realistic approach to the views and actions necessary to fully realize our potential. So assessing these areas won't come easily right now. Many will be willing to leave things in the hands of fate, believing that the Universe will make it right and bring us our desired outcome. The problem here is that we can all too easily slip into wishful thinking that causes us to lose touch with the realistic aspects of a situation.

During this time, if you find yourself considering any major changes that involve tapping into resources, income, and investments, it would be a good idea to do a reality check with someone who you trust. In love, if you are talking about making changes to an existing relationship or getting ready to start a new one, make sure you take the time to step back and take a look at the long term aspects so that we can differentiate between our hopes colouring our thinking and the reality of gaining what we hope for. Again, a reality check with someone who truly trust is the best action to take at these times.

March 15th - Mercury enters Pisces
When Mercury is in Pisces, our thinking processes become visual, intuitive, and imaginative. Our brainy Mercury is less interested in the facts and more in touch with feelings at this time. We are more attuned to the world of emotion, and it colours both our thoughts and our communication style. We guess well, express ourselves with imagery, and make decisions intuitively. Minds meander with Mercury moving through Pisces, going off course to places that words cannot adequately describe.

This transit serves poets, artists, healers, spiritual seekers and all those who don't rely on objective evidence to shape reality. Facts may grow fuzzy, but conversations grow tender as intuition becomes the most valuable source of information. Our “right brain” activity is activated now which can result in things like daydreams, mediation, and dream patterns more accessible to us.

One negative under this transit however is that managing details can be more difficult with airy Mercury in this watery sign. We may be more impressionable and more open to ideas that, before we may have considered down right silly. We can all too easily be caught up in the confusion and ambiguity that this transit brings. It could be all too easy to be enticed or convinced by deception and illusions and this is due to our ability to be objective and critical becoming less focused. Feeling mentally dragged down or slow can result in a need to rest our minds at this time. It’s a good time for some alone time doing things that entertain the brain.

March 16th - Sun sextile Pluto (Sun in Pisces, Pluto in Capricorn)
Under this transit we can feel our sense of purpose grow stronger, allowing us to tap into the deeper levels of our energy stores and determination. We can apply this determined effort towards promoting our ideas and could find that we are very persuasive with others. We do need to take care though that we are not coming across as too forceful or pushy. It's a good energy for those situations where we need to make a strong impression, but not so much in cases where a more delicate touch is needed. A more enlightened approach is best for getting our ideas across now. Others are more open to new ideas when not feeling pressured or pushed.

We also gain the ability to be able to see below the surface of things. We may not be able to understand what it is we are seeing but we can often get to the core of unconscious patterns that need changing. Some of the insights we gain now may not bring about a "light bulb" moment until later down the line.

March 17th - Mars sextile Chiron (Mars in Gemini, Chiron in Aries)
Swords, scalpels, knives, and words can all be used with pinpoint accuracy and dexterity during this transit. Even if brandishing swords isn't exactly part of your daily routine, you can still benefit from this energy boost. Energy can be a tool you can use with extreme precision, accomplishing exactly what you need to do. Nothing is too difficult or too much work now; get the job done.

It also brings a chance to take action that can bring about some healing resolutions to long standing, ongoing problems you have been dealing with. Extra get up and go, extra confidence, and some empowerment that allows you to help others are all benefits of this transit. You could find yourself in a position to help others to find some relief from chronic struggles, or at least lend a hand in empowering them to face them. It's a time when all types of problem solving can benefit. We just need to take a proactive attitude, take care of what we are able to and release the things we can't do much about. That doesn't mean giving up or turning our backs on those things we can't do anything with. It just means to stop draining your energy trying to push something that isn't ready to budge yet. Instead, turn that focus towards what you can shift and give it 100%.

March 18th - Venus sextile Pluto (Venus in Pisces, Pluto in Capricorn)
This is a subtly powerful and uplifting time for romantic/sexual relationships because our sense of attraction is very strong. The focus is on those close, one to one relationships which means these can benefit from moving to a deeper level. The key is to creatively blend deep connections with balanced harmony. New insights into relationships and love can come to us that could help improve a current relationship or help us to improve how we view relationships of all kinds.

Our feelings become impassioned but not in an offensive or unpleasant way. We feel more focused and confident and can appreciate authenticity and the depth of feeling in our dealings with those around us. Because there is a feeling of openness at this time, we may just discover something new and relevant about a partner (or about our own romantic nature). Venus rules money and love so  this can be a good time for either (or both) if the opportunity arises.

We do need to be cautious however that bonding and intimacy don’t flow overboard into domination and obsession. Establishing a balance of power is important so we will need to be sure we are not trying to suppress, overpower, or control the interests of the people we wish to gain a deeper bond with. This can also be a time for financial profit as opportunities with institutions such as banks, the tax man, insurance, or anything that deals with collective funds open up for us.

March 21st - Venus enters Aries
The goddess of beauty in Aries can help us to pick up the pace if we are willing to explore new opportunities and relationships- especially friendships and organizations in the days ahead. We gain an assertive attitude added to our usual style of dealing with relationships, resources, values and finances. We may be more direct and proactive where our pursuit for independence and freedom is concerned too.

Spontaneous attractions and restless relationships are likely with the love planet in impatient Aries and we need to be careful about things like impulse buying or reckless decisions regarding passion. We can be more open to trying new things where finances and relationships are concerned which can take us into uncharted territory. This can be great if you like change and not so great if you aren't one for change. However, experiencing breakthroughs in alliances, appearance and self-worth make experimentation desirable during this revelatory period. In all, it can be a transit that helps get us out of a rut and is also a great time for appreciating and celebrating our unique individual selves. 

March 21st - Mercury sextile Uranus (Mercury in Pisces, Uranus in Taurus)
Under this transit our thoughts are inventive, original, and we may secretly enjoy shocking those around us with some of our more outrageous opinions and insights. It's all in good fun though! This is a time when we enjoy making connections, especially with people who bring something different and unique to the table. We want to stay busy and be on the move. Any plans that revolve around creating something new and fresh gives us that motivation and excitement we need to create the time and space for them. It's a good day for stimulating the mind with new and interesting things.

For those who are used to a predictable lifestyle, you may suddenly feel inspired to do something new, out of character, or to experiment with new ideas. And those of us who tend to be impulsive normally, we may find new ways to express this. This transit helps us to think outside the box and expand our vision and perspective. New realizations and answers to old questions may seem to suddenly appear in a burst of light.

We also may feel a bit mentally restless now and feel it is hard to slow our thoughts down, making it hard to focus and apply ourselves seriously where our responsibilities are concerned. Our attention span is short and we get easily …….(Ooh shiny!)
…what was I saying?


March 21st - Mars trine Saturn (Mars in Gemini, Saturn in Aquarius)
This transit is great for when we need to take some disciplined action that produces grounded, stable and specific results. So, if you have a project that needs a bit of a forward push to the next stage, this is a good time to do it. If you are looking to make some progress with your plans, goals and ambitions, now is the time to take action of make some plans.

We tend to feel more capable, strong and overall “together” under this transits influence, which gives us a more calm, serious and realistic feeling of confidence that we can really work with.

While this transit can lend us some sustained physical energy, we do need to pace ourselves to avoid burnout if we want that endurance to last. The effects of this transit will only last us about 1 to 2 weeks, so make the most of it!

March 23rd - Mercury square Mars (Mercury in Pisces, Mars in Gemini)
This transit is characterized by hot debates, fiery speech and lots of arguments. We may experience this in forms of conflict or we may find these exchanges as challenging yet stimulating. We just need to remember to pace all of that mental energy.

One of the things we need to watch out for here is that we may have a really short fuse, as will others around us. There is a tendency to blurt things out that we may come to regret later on. In some cases though we may find the courage we need to tackle something that is way overdue. The tricky part here is that there is a fine line between these two scenarios; what we felt as courage one moment may come across as reckless and hasty behaviour later one. And those harsh words we may let fly are not so easy to retract.

We can get through this one by keeping a tight rein on our judgement and objectivity when having verbal duels. We can tap into this energy and use it to fan the flames of motivation or take our ideas and use them to generate some positive and constructive action.

March 25th - Mercury square North Lunar Node (Mercury in Pisces, North Node in Gemini) 
This is a transit where we can feel compelled to do a 360 about where we have been heded on our life's path. Its a time when information or facts turn up that are in total contradiction to what we believed was true or real about our sense of life purpose. In some instances we mat feel as if someone else is just getting in our way. There is a temptation to deny, dismiss rationalize or totally avoid our way around these things, but, as in most cases, we would probably be missing out on some valuable info that we really need to take into consideration. This in no way means that you have to up and abandon your current life's path! Its more a matter of us being challenged to see that path more clearly.

We may also find at this time that we have to express some information or a point of view that isn't favourable or welcome to others, or it may feel like a real challenge to get our point across. If you find yourself in this kind of scenario, don't go overboard trying to stand your ground. Instead focus on what needs to be said and how best to say it.

March 26th - Sun conjunct Venus (Both in Aries)

Under this social transit's energy we want to be seen and get noticed, mainly for our natural qualities. This desire to be social opens up doors of opportunity for us to reach out and connect with others today, as well as allows us to express ourselves with ease, charm, and grace. Whether you find yourself spending time with others or on your own, pursuing the things you love and enjoy comes easily now.

This is also an energy that helps us to play the role of moderator and peacemaker because we can see both sides of a situation and how all of the little pieces fall into place. If contentment has been an elusive thing for you, take the time today to recognize the areas of your life that bring enjoyment since they will be more apparent now. Creating harmony in your life can begin today and last beyond tomorrow.

This transit can also make us feel a bit on the lazy side and self indulgent side so we need to be careful in how we plan the day. Try to keep it as low key as possible, avoiding filling your schedule with hectic and demanding tasks. Take the time to appreciate the beauty of nature all around you. Take a stroll through the park, visit an art museum or attend a social gathering. Don't be surprised if a love interest is revived today or you seem to attract love and money situations your way.

 
March 26th - Mars conjunct North Lunar Node (Both in Gemini) 
For up to a week prior and a week after today we will probably feel more energized in some aspect. This is a transit where we feel more passionate, active, enthusiastic, somewhat wired and can also be angered easily. Or it may be that we find ourselves around other people who are this way.

There is also a more aggressive, explosive and overbearing energy that can come with this transit too. In its worst form it can show up as violence. As a group who has their heads in a positive mindset, this energy can be used in a constructive way quite easily. But in a negative mindset it can come out through arguments, not agreeing, conflict and hostility.

The way to get through this time is to find an outlet that is both beneficial and constructive, like trying new things or taking that leap of faith. Just make sure you balance this with a bit of common sense too.

March 28th - Venus conjunct Chiron (Both in Aries)
Under this transit those unresolved issues and old wounds in both finances and relationships can come to the surface. They do bring with this the potential for healing and bringing a chance for a fresh start. However, in most cases we will need to go through the somewhat painful process of making ourselves aware of those things that are currently out of balance. Sometimes this can bring a feeling of despair because it means a situation needs to get worse before it gets better. And it will get better if we allow the healing process to work through what it needs to work through.

While we can help others heal under this transit’s energies, we also have the ability to wound those we are close to, while we are looking through those things that are not working in our relationships. The same goes for resources and finances; we may need to face some hard realities that can’t be quickly resolved at this time. However, dealing with any issues now can give you that chance to achieve a new sense of balance. This will be especially true of how we see our financial state as a reflection of ourselves and our self-worth. We may perceive the state of our relationships as a reflection of how lovable we feel we are too. These are areas that can be aggravated under this transit but in the end it is meant to help increase our awareness of these particular issues so that we can start the healing process, perhaps even find new ways to heal them.

March 29th - Sun conjunct Chiron (Both in Aries)
Over the next few days we will notice that we turn our focus towards our own healing needs. Our energy levels may be more open to health issues, making us feel somewhat drained. Spiritually we may feel a bit lost and vulnerable regarding our sense of purpose. We become more aware of how our self-esteem is being undermined either as a result of outside influences or through our own self sabotaging habits.

Some may feel a renewed sense of motivation that propels them to start building up their physical/health defences through starting new fitness regimes, creating new health goals, and making lifestyle changes that will benefit your health in some way. This can be a good time for observation and learning regarding how issues in our lives are affecting us, the role we play in them, and what other choices we have before us. Working towards self-acceptance at this time can help strengthen the areas in our lives that make us feel weak and vulnerable.

March 29th - Mercury conjunct Neptune (Both in Pisces)
Our intuitive creativity is stimulated under this transits influence. You might get insights into your own mind and/or into others' behavior. Our imaginations can really soar here as insights become more magical and richer. Our creativity tends to flow better, dreams become more vivid and lucid, and experiences become more likely.

For those who are more sensitive to this transits energies, a need for finding quiet time to meditate or just be alone with our thoughts could be strong. Our mental focus can become a bit blurred and conscious reasoning can be distorted by subconscious matter. So concentrating on cold hard facts can be challenging. Daydreaming, visualization, and prophecy are stimulated. Communications may be unclear, vague, or downright confused. You could be subject to deception. Avoid signing contracts under this influence.

March 30th - Venus sextile Saturn (Venus in Aries, Saturn in Aquarius)
This is a day for romantic yearnings, fantasies and longings. It makes the perfect time to ask yourself if there is a dream of yours, perhaps one you had to shelve for awhile, that you can now take down, blow off the dust, and make it come true.

Our interactions with others become more serious under this transit’s energy and we feel more able to solve problems by working through the details. It is also possible to find stability in both our finances and relationships now, especially those where we feel more inclined to negotiate realistically and fairly. We find that structured and committed approach (Capricorn) comes easier than taking risks.

Where our funds are concerned we have a stronger ability to use discipline regarding our spending habits and our budgeting system. Some may even decide to work a bit of overtime or a bit harder to increase their earnings and make things work in the best way possible. This transit gives us that ability to really grasp the true and solid facts needed to choose investments wisely and to interact with others where relationships of all kinds are concerned.

Another aspect of ourselves that this transit effects is our self worth, which can really benefit now because we are less likely to let ourselves give in to mood swings. However, for those of us who suffer from depression, we may want to take a bit of extra care that we don’t let ourselves become so stable and grounded that we totally lose touch with our sense of hope and potential.

This really is a good time for making solid progress though in matters that Venus rules; love, harmony, beauty, balance, finances, values, and material things. The blend of these Capricorn and Scorpio energies lets us get under the surface and to the deeper issues as well as lets us be more responsible and productive in fixing things.

Many of us may feel less than social at this time and steer away from conversations that seem frivolous or gossipy. But discussing financial matters and relationship responsibilities can go well under this transit. We tend to be more concerned at this time with the practical side of any creative ventures. We may not feel a great deal of inspiration right now but we will feel more organized which will allow us to manage those little details involved in projects. To get the most of this transit, try keeping your pleasures humble and simple.

March 31st - Venus sextile North Lunar Node (Venus in Aries, North Node in Gemini)
Under this transit our charisma and charm shines more brightly. We tend to be more receptive to what others have to offer us and feel a bit more generous to those around us. We may discover resources that we hadn't realized we had, or come across that special gadget or thing that feels like the right thing to buy. This can be a good time for socializing, going out on dates, and doing some strategic schmoozing, negotiating, or coming to agreements.

What we need to make sure we do is keep it all in balance with a level of give and take that benefits everyone involved. Be careful of going overboard though with persuading others (or being persuaded) to do something that really isn't in their own best interest.

March 31st - Sun sextile Saturn (Sun in Aries, Saturn in Aquarius)
Under the vibes of this transit we are more able to effectively take care of loose ends and attend to small details, especially the ones we dislike. We find a sense of satisfaction in following directions and playing by the rules. And because of this we have a better chance of tackling any serious issues in our lives and complete tasks that we have put off for some time. Commitments that we make now are more apt to last because of a more serious attitude and willingness to take on responsibilities. It's a good time to prove to others that you can be dependable when it counts. Focusing on practical matters and getting organized are good things to focus on now, especially if you are laying the foundation for something positive to grow.

What to watch for in April 2021!

Mars moves into Gemini, Mercury and Pallas enter Pisces, and Venus enters Aries.
