Venus retrograde from 15º26’ to 5º16’ Aries until April 17
The beginning and ending degrees are symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by “Nature spirits are seen at work in the light of sunset” and “a square with one of its sides brightly illumined”. One month and a half to revisit our emotional involvements, either by rectifying an existing bond or re-discovering one that we thought had ended or would never occur. We are given a chance to see a side of our relationships which we weren’t aware of, and to become aware of their light in a whole new way. An invisible help is at work also. Beings of Light from inner planes are actively encouraging our togetherness and helping create happiness and new beginnings.
Saturn remains retrograde this whole month between 19º01’ and 16º41’ Virgo
These 3 degrees are described as follows: “A caravan of cars headed to the West Coast” , “a swimming race”, “an Ouija board” and “a volcanic eruption”. It is still important that we structure our lives and focus on our most important goals. We cannot afford to dissipate energy or to be scattered in our projects. During this month, the more grounded and in tune we are with both our intuition and passion, the more we can fulfill our most cherished ambitions and our dreams.

Our Intentional Meditation
Our intentional meditation begins on Tuesday 3/10
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 Virgo at 7:38 PM. Once that exact moment has passed, gather your sheets and place them in a folder until the next New Moon.
On Thursday 3/26 at 9:06 AM
Take out your Full Moon charged papers and write one intention per sheet, making sure it is positive and concise. Place your papers out to be activated by the New Moon in Aries. Once that exact moment has passed, staple your sheets together, write the date and put them away, expecting a miracle.
Sunday 3/1: Mercury conjunct Mars (7:06 PM)
A great day for honest, forceful, direct communication and intelligent action. We should however beware of impulsive decisions and anger both in ourselves and others. Exercise caution while operating motor vehicles.

Not such a good day for signing important papers (if you must, make sure you read the fine print several times). Wonderful for meditation, yoga, healing work, inspired reading/writing and channeling.
Friday 3/6: Venus turns retrograde (9:17 AM until April 17)
This is a wonderful period to revisit a relationship that ended some time ago, or to reexamine an existing relationship.

A very positive day financially if we are careful to not squander money. Excellent for starting a long-distance trip.
Thursday 3/12: Sun Conjunct Uranus (6:25 PM)
An exciting day when the unexpected is likely to occur. We could feel wired today and excited. The more uniquely ourselves we are, the more we inspire others to have the courage of their own truth.

A great day for working with our computer, buying electronic gadgets or downloading some new software.
Monday 3/23: Sun Square Pluto (11:34 AM)
A day that could be a little uncomfortable. Some of our inner demons surface, giving us the chance to transmute them. A great day for in-depth self-examination. Wonderful for reforming in our neighborhood or community what needs to be transformed.
