RUNE OF THE MONTH: the blank Rune. "The Mystery"
This is the clearest evidence of our direct contact with the Divine, this place of unknowingness where we allow God's will to guide our will. Everything is possible as we step outside of time and invite the sacredness into our daily lives.
Mercury is retrograde from March 30th till April 23rd
Mercury is retrograde from March 30th till April 23rd, between 24º18 and 12º53 Aries. 24º18' Aries (only degree in March) is symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by: "The possibility for man to gain experience at two levels of existence." We are called to examine carefully our attitude toward leadership. The veil is thinning in such a way as to allow us to be simultaneously in several locations and retrieve deep information from each. We are given the opportunity to travel in time. From our present, we are given the chance to shift things that seemed to belong to the past and transform our future effectively. The notion of separation becomes very diluted.
Saturn is retrograde this whole month
Saturn is retrograde this whole month between 16º15' and 14º11' Libra. These three degrees are represented in the Sabian Symbols by: "Circular paths", "after a storm a boat landing stands in need of reconstruction", "A retired sea captain watches ships entering and leaving the harbor." A chance is given to revisit a romantic bond we thought was of our past. With the maturity, wisdom and awareness gained, we are able to completely renew our feelings and shift outmoded or conditioned emotional behaviors as well as misplaced expectations.
Uranus enters Aries on March 10 till March 6, 2019
Uranus enters Aries on March 10 till March 6, 2019. We are entering an exciting new dimension of consciousness. We feel rebelliousness toward anything that has been limiting us either from within ourselves or in our external circumstances. A time when there is a huge acceleration of the rhythm of life, an impatience, a sense of great urgency to accomplish what needs to be done, quickly. Great for clearing ancient karma and whatever darkness, -particularly anger and violence- may still be lurking behind the facades.
The Moon will be Void of Course

Tuesday 3/1: Venus Sextile Uranus (6:50 AM), Venus enters Aquarius (6:39 PM till 3/27)
Interesting and exciting social encounters. New situations lead to unusual opportunities. During the next 3 weeks, we may value friendship over love. A love affair could become a friendship and a friendship could shift to love. We are very concerned with the wellbeing of our fellow men.
Thursday 3/3: Mars Sextile Pluto (6:50 PM)
A restless urge to move forward no matter what others around us, or circumstances dictate, creates a constructive change of direction. We feel very passionate about our life.
Wednesday 3/9: Mercury Conjunct Uranus (8:05 AM), Mercury enters Aries (9:47 AM till May 15)
A stimulating change of pace could put us in contact with unusual people. We could suddenly break relationships with acquaintances who have become boring, and seek exciting new friends. Unexpected data could shed a whole new light on existing circumstances and challenge cherished ideas. During the next two months, we are direct in our speech, honest and forceful in the expression of our opinions.
Thursday 3/10: Venus Sextile Jupiter (4:25 AM)
Important to remain patient and courteous today as the tendency may be to go a little overboard both emotionally and financially. A day when we feel adventurous and optimistic. Romance is warm and exuberant. Generous gifts, either offered or received, are very likely today.
Friday 3/11: Uranus enters Aries (4:25 PM till March 6, 2019)
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.
Sunday 3/13: Mercury Square Pluto (10:30 AM)
Willful decisions could be quite destructive today. Power games are likely. Best to lie low and seek cooperation from all the parties involved. Important to think deeply about how far we are willing to go to maintain unity.
Monday 3/14: Venus Trine Saturn (6:34 PM)
A great day to structure the future of an existing romance, or if we are single, to figure out what we want in a love relationship. Enlisting the help of others in our organizational work proves most beneficial.
Tuesday 3/15: Mercury Conjunct Jupiter (6:27 PM)
Our confident and optimistic outlook expands our horizons and opens us many positive doors. Great for long distance traveling, the study of philosophy, religion or foreign cultures.
Friday 3/18: Mercury Opposition Saturn (6:55 AM)
A day we may prefer to be alone. Everything feels like a demand and could leave us burdened and depressed. Our duties seem a little bleak. Best to focus on what we have control over and stay away from the agitation of social activities.
Sunday 3/20: Sun enters Aries (4:21 PM till April 20)
During the next month, our leadership abilities are enhanced. We feel dynamic, positive, optimistic and committed to creating value both for ourselves and the world around us.
Monday 3/21: Sun Conjunct Uranus (5:25 AM)
A stimulating day which places us in direct contact with our highest truth. We could feel impatient and detached in dealing with things/people who no longer serve our highest good. We want others to follow us, not compromise in anyway. A day which allows us to assert our independence and uniqueness.
Saturday 3/26: Venus Conjunct Neptune (6:40 PM), Venus enters Pisces (11:53 PM till April 20)
We seek love with someone we have a deep soul connection with. There could be an element of magic in the air, a feeling of otherworldliness in an existing or a new relationship, something difficult to define but truly enchanting in the most wonderful way. This atmosphere permeates the whole next month. We are deeply aware of the oneness of all and in tune with the beauty inherent in every being and every situation.
Monday 3/28: Sun Square Pluto (5:11 AM), Jupiter Opposition Saturn (2:56 PM)
In business and personal negotiations, it is important to work towards the good of all involved. Any kind of manipulation, power game, or willfulness will backfire. We could feel that our freedom is being restricted. Business or financial dealings may be slower than usual. Not a good day to invest, lend or borrow money. Best to be patient, persistent and put order where needed.
Wednesday 3/30: Mercury Retrograde (1:48 PM till April 23)
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.
Wishing you all the best.
In Loving Light.
