Astro Update March 2016

Astro Update March 2016

The Wheel of Fortune is spinning, with Eclipses, Spring Equinox, and important planetary shifts in the offing. Pisces energy will highlight creativity, but make reality a bit slippery. Fiery planetary energy will push events forward towards the end of the month.

Mars in Sagittarius brings an energetic thrust to our personal desires. It can also make some people a little pushy, too. Use this vibration to tackle projects that require action and enthusiasm. The Quarter Moon in Sagittarius on March 1, 2016 will make compelling aspects to many planets for a few days. But take note: this is a better time to follow through on projects that have already begun, not to start new ones.

There’s a Total Solar Eclipse at 18 degrees Pisces on March 8, 2016. It’s also a Supermoon, which will ratchet up the energy even more. Eclipses tend to be rather “fateful” and this one will not disappoint. The Sun and Moon in Pisces will be in opposition to Jupiter in Virgo, making this eclipse much grander in scale. There is a theme of healing and compassion here, since the planetoid Chiron, the wounded healer, is also part of this mix. East Asia and Australia are in the “target zone” for the height of the eclipse. There may be key world events and/or increased seismic activity around this time. If your birthday falls near to this eclipse, you will be in for an important and eventful year ahead. It would be best to back off from extreme activities and major life decisions around the time of the eclipse. Mercury and Neptune hook up in Pisces just after the eclipse, which is great for psychic energy and creativity, but not so good for cold, hard logic.

Spring Equinox arrives on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at 9:30 pm Pacific Time. The Sun’s entrance into Aries heralds in Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, Fall in the Southern hemisphere. This is one of the four major “turning points” of the year. Take time to reconnect to your goals and intentions now. We are finished with the first quarter of 2016 and there’s still a lot more excitement to come!

The Full Moon on March 23, 2016 is also a Lunar Eclipse at 3 degrees Libra. Events that were set in motion at the time of the Solar Eclipse on March 8 may take on deeper significance now. The Aries/Libra polarity highlights relationships and the need to balance autonomy with interdependence.

Opportunity Days: March 2, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 25 and 26
