Mars turns direct on March 10 at 0º17’ Leo.
The image associated in the Sabian Symbols to this degree is “blood rushes to a man’s head as his vital energies are mobilized under the spur of ambition.” We complete the cycle begun in October 2009 of having to understand how to express our truth in a healthy manner. We learned that we could be totally honest and self-assertive without stepping on anyone’s toe. Anger could be manifested kindly and we could find our voice without feeling that others would be robbed of anything by us being ourselves. This gave us a new energy that we now can look forward to working with. We are no longer under the domination of anyone or anything, we are free and this could very well be the very first time in many, many incarnations that we have this chance to know and be our truth. This new found power is our chance to begin manifesting our real dreams and ambitions with passion and focus.
Saturn continues to be retrograde this whole month (until May 30) between 2º52’ and 0º35’ Libra.
These 3 degrees are symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by “The dawn of a new day reveals everything changed.”, “The transmutation of the fruits of past experiences into the seed-realizations of the forever creative spirit.”, “in a collection of perfect specimens of many biological forms, a butterfly displays the beauty of its wings, its body impaled by a fine dart.” We are anchoring a whole new consciousness that does not reject the past, but uses its finest elements to solidify the new creation we are manifesting. This is an exciting time during which we shall be securing many of the efforts accomplished in the past months. It is essential that we cement only good and positive creations and that we continue weeding out the old consciousness that never served us, but now less than ever. As we consciously clear old, inherited, conditioned patterns of behavior, the magic of our divine truth emerges, enabling us to fly on its wings to undreamed new heights.

Our Intentional Meditation
On Monday 3/15 take out the papers we charged on February 28.
Write one intention per sheet, making sure it is positive and concise. Place your papers out to be activated by the New Moon in Pisces at exactly 2:01 PM. Once that exact moment has passed, staple your sheets together, write the date and put them away, expecting a miracle.
Our next intentional meditation begins on Monday 3/29.
Take as many blank sheets as you will have intentions and place them out (on a balcony, near a window or in a garden) to be charged by the Full Moon in Libra at 7:25 PM. Once that exact moment has passed, gather your sheets and place them in a folder until the next New Moon on April 14.
Monday 3/1: Mercury enters Pisces (5:28 AM until 3/17)
During these next few weeks, intuitive communication is greatly enhanced. Great for channeling, healing and meditation. Artists could feel particularly inspired. Our dreams at night could be more vivid. We could download very special information and become much more sensitive to vibrations. The veil between the visible and the invisible is very thin during this period.
Wednesday 3/3: Venus conjunct Uranus (8:06 PM)
We seek renewal and excitement in our romantic relationship. This could mean exploring the adventurousness of an existing commitment or meeting a new, unusual person we feel very magnetically attracted to. We are learning how to balance intimacy and freedom, as well as love and friendship. A friendship could become a love affair, while a love could become more of a friendship. Today, intellectual and spiritual stimulation are important in a love connection.
Thursday 3/4: Mercury Sextile Pluto (3:53AM)
Our mind is deep, searching for profound answers to our questions. We could be drawn to scientific research and most definitely be attracted to the occult, metaphysical truths, the exploration of life after life and solving earth mysteries. We need to have the utmost integrity in our dealings with others: say things as they are. We are able to X-ray situations and people today in a way which enables us to empower both ourselves and others. We are attracted to serious conversations and friendships with people we respect.
Sunday 3/7: Venus enters Aries (4:33AM until 3/31), Venus Trine Mars (11:15 AM), Mercury Conjunct Jupiter (5:46 PM)
A beautiful and dynamic day. We express the feminine and the masculine within and without with great ease and balance. We manifest our feelings with much purity and spontaneity. An already existing, or a new love relationship is infused with much excitement and desire for adventure. The more positive we are, the more wonderful our discoveries will be on an intimate level. A day where our freedom of speech, honesty and positive energy open many doors. Long distance traveling is greatly favored.
Tuesday 3/9: Venus opposition Saturn (0:21AM)
A sense of aloneness and mild depression could accompany this transit. It is a good day to be realistic with regard to a love relationship. What do we like about it? What is more difficult? How can we change what isn’t so sweet and if not, can we live with it without compromising our own truth? For those who are single, it is a great time to set clear intentions on the kind of person we wish to meet.
Wednesday 3/10: Mars turns direct (9:09AM)
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.
Thursday 3/11: Venus Square Pluto (9:35 AM)
A great day to clear the air of any old emotional luggage. Unresolved jealousy, anger, anxiety or fears are likely to be triggered through power games and manipulations, enabling us to recognize our shadow and transmute darkness into light. A chance to really see what is and what is not in a deep, love relationship. We can then decide whether we can transmute its challenges or not, and if not, can we continue growing within that reality?
Sunday 3/14: Sun Conjunct Mercury (6:17 AM)
Communications are easy and flowing today. Make those phone calls, write those e-mails, read those articles, connect with the people you need information from..... Excellent for short trips, lecturing, writing and some lively conversations with good friends.
Monday 3/15: Mercury Conjunct Uranus (2:41 PM)
A fabulous day for people needing to think out of the box. Great for publicists and creators. Our intuition helps us connect seemingly unrelated concepts. We could take an active interest in UFOs, as well as futuristic ideas. Humanitarian projects seem particularly appealing today. In our eagerness to move forward, we could feel impatient with more conventional people or methods of working.
Tuesday 3/16: Sun Conjunct Uranus (11:51 PM)
New group associations could be formed at this time. We are likely to meet exciting, progressive people and get involved in humanitarian endeavors. We feel dynamic and want things in our lives to fast forward. Our personal magnetism and leadership abilities rally many people to our cause. We discover unusual inner resources that help us attract unexpected opportunities into our lives.
Wednesday 3/17: Mercury enters Aries (9:12 AM until 4/2), Mercury Trine Mars (4:33 PM)
A dynamic day for communications. We are direct and assertive. We have no fear and express ourselves with great spontaneity. Excellent for clearing the air of old resentments and confronting people with both kindness and forcefulness. Our honesty about where we stand gives permission to others to find their own truth.
Thursday 3/18: Mercury opposition Saturn (4:04 AM)
We could have to face a big reality check today. This could prove somewhat depressing. Best to just clear our desk of any back-logged work and rewrite our short and long term goals. We seek ambitious and hard-working individuals today whom we can respect and have serious conversations with. Our thoughts are structured and grounded.
Saturday 3/20: Sun enters Aries (10:32 AM Vernal Equinox, until 4/19)
This next month is about new beginnings. We are offered the chance of completely reinventing ourselves at a cellular level. A very powerful time of regeneration that enables us to manifest what we truly wish to see happen in our lives. We feel energized and dynamic, full of new life!
Sunday 3/21: Sun Trine Mars (10:54 AM), Sun Opposition Saturn (5:37 PM)
A day of mixed blessings. On one hand we are very spontaneous, forceful and assertive, on the other, we measure the consequences of our actions so much that this may stifle our forward movement. We could simultaneously want to move forward and feel overly cautious and conservative. A good day to figure out what is limiting us: is it the realistic need to exert patience or the fear of our own greatness?
Monday 3/22: Mars Sextile Saturn (8:55PM)
We could be particularly efficient today. As we focus on our goals, we are able to sustain -seemingly effortlessly- long hours of arduous work. Great for physical activities requiring much endurance. Our concentration allows no room for distraction. We are serious about getting the job done.
Thursday 3/25: Sun Square Pluto (8:44PM)
Secrets could be exposed, our shadow could become so obvious as to be unavoidable, challenges could force us in a very uncomfortable corner. The more discipline and maturity we exert in dealing with what needs to be transformed within us, the easier this transit will be. We cannot –and shouldn’t- escape self-honesty today.
Monday 3/1: Venus Sextile Neptune (1:26 PM)
A very magical day. Romance is in the air. We could feel very acutely the oneness of all life and be particularly sensitive to the suffering of others. Our compassion attracts many to us who seek understanding and solace. An existing, or new, love relationship is infused with much beauty. We become more aware than ever of the depth of our soul connection.
Wednesday 3/31: Venus enters Taurus (5:13 AM until 4/20), Mercury Sextile Neptune (8:22PM)
During the next month, we seek peace and harmony with nature in our intimate relationship. We need to enjoy the beauty of being in a physical body, smell the roses and take life one moment at a time. We could be more sensitive to touch and smells and be drawn to pottery and gardening, as well as receiving or offering a massage. Today more particularly, our mind is very intuitive and in tune with subtle vibrations. Great for healing and channeling. Artists could draw inspiration from otherworldly dimensions and manifest sacred works.
Wishing you all the best.
In Loving Light.
