March 2014 Newsletter
Kindly note that the days and times given below are in PST (Pacific Standard Time) until March 9 and in PDT afterwards. For Rocky Mountain Time (including AZ until March 9) MST, add 1 hour. After March 9, AZ is on the same time zone as CA. For Central Time (CST), add 2 hours. For Eastern Time (EST), add 3 hours. For Alaskan Time, subtract 1 hour. For Hawaii-Aleutian Time, subtract 2 hours. For Greenwich (GMT), add 8 hours. For Central European time (CET) add 9 hours. For Eastern European time (EET), add 10 hours. RUNE OF THE MONTH: Uruz “support”. Support and compassion are very related. Supporting another comes when we don’t judge or think we know best. True acceptance stems from acknowledging another’s reality with an open heart, from his or her perspective. Believing in another’s dreams can provide the encouragement necessary to make them happen. Even the strongest among us, needs support. The positive vision of those we care about, provides a strength that gives the power to overcome inevitable challenges. Support alleviates feelings of loneliness. It encourages us to excellence by taking risks that could otherwise have felt threatening. It goes hand and hand with appreciation and gratitude for the blessings in our lives.
Mars turns retrograde on March 1 at 8:24 AM and remains so until May 20th. Its shadow period (the time necessary for it to return to the exact position it started its retrograde movement on) lasts until July 21. During the next 3 months, our vital energy is turned inwards. Not a good period to start activities requiring physicality, nor a sexual relationship. Buying a new car may not be the best thing either. We may feel more reserved than usual and more reflective. Projects are not entered into impulsively. We think many times before acting and are more cautious with regard to new endeavors.
Jupiter turns direct on 3/6 at 2:42 AM at 10º27’ Cancer. Its shadow period remains until June 2nd, 2014. Since November 7, 2013, integrity was required of us. Many untruths were revealed. We became more open to other countries, cultures and ways of thinking. Legal and religious matters were revisited and cleared of drama and corruption.
Saturn turns retrograde on 3/2 at 23º19’ Scorpio. It remains so until July 21. Its shadow period lasts until October 27th. During the next 5 months, we are required to simplify our lives, become more self-sufficient and disciplined. Playing by the rules and accepting the law is particularly important. So is becoming clear on our short and long term priorities. A need to simplify our lives and be focused on our ambitions permeates this period.

Our Intentional Meditation
Our intentional meditation starts on Sunday 3/16 with the Full Moon in Virgo. Take out as many blank sheets as you will have intentions and put them out on a balcony, in a garden, or near a window to be charged by the Full Moon at exactly 10:08 AM (you can place them several hours before until several hours after that time).
On Sunday 3/30 on the New Moon in Aries, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are basking in the moonlight at 11:45 AM (you can put them out up to several hours prior to that time). Once that moment has passed (even if several hours later, or in the evening), staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams….
Saturday 3/1: Mars turns retrograde (8:24 AM until May 20th)
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.
Sunday 3/2: Saturn turns retrograde (8:19 AM until July 20th), Venus Square Mars (12:04 PM)
Regarding Saturn retrograde, kindly refer to the opening paragraph. Today, more specifically, we transmute obstacles in relationships through honesty, calm and loving persistence. A great day for an exuberant party where we are just intent on having fun. Giving in to frustrations will only create unnecessarily volatile situations. A day to take it easy and find an inner balance between the masculine and the feminine.
Monday 3/3: Sun Sextile Pluto (11:13 AM)
A sincere and peaceful expression of authority inspires more respect than ultimatums. A day to embrace our power with simplicity and calm. The more we act with responsibility and maturity, the deeper our impact on our environment and the more constructive our actions become. A day to lead rather than follow and make important decisions that can transform life for the better.
Wednesday 3/5: Venus enters Aquarius (1:03 PM until April 5)
During the next month, we feel more social than usual. Friendship is highlighted. We could feel more universal than geared specifically towards one person. Large gatherings of like-spirited people are appealing.
Thursday 3/6: Jupiter turns direct (2:42 AM)
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.
Monday 3/10: Mercury Square Saturn (11:14 PM)
We could feel overcome by discouragement, fatigue and depression. Social encounters are likely to be disappointing. A day to stay quiet and complete the tasks at hand with attention to details. We need solitude to rethink our goals and figure out how to simplify our lives so that they become more efficient and grounded in reality.
Thursday 3/13: Sun Trine Saturn (2:16 PM)
A great day to further our ambitions, ask for a raise and take on more responsibilities. We are structured and grounded. Our inner stability encourages others to work harder to manifest their dreams in physical reality. We could be offered a leadership position that fulfills our ambitions.
Friday 3/14: Mercury Trine Mars (9:17 AM)
Communication today is straight forward and dynamic. We express what we think with courage and energy. Great for writing, short trips and lecturing. Our arguments are convincing and our words inspire others to action. Selling and trading are favored. Impulsive gatherings with friends lead to new ideas.
Monday 3/17: Mercury enters Pisces (3:24 PM till April 7)
During the next 3 weeks, we think with our hearts and feel with our heads. Our imagination is greatly enhanced. Particularly favorable for artists, channelers and healers who could find that the thinning of the veils between dimensions inspires both their creativity and their awareness. A renewed focus on the health of the oceans leads to greater consciousness of spiritual responsibility.
Tuesday 3/18: Venus Sextile Uranus (12:00 PM)
We seek excitement, unusual social activities and original people. We enjoy greater charisma. A new relationship could end as quickly as it began. A friendship could turn into love and a love, become a friendship. We are drawn to social circles involved in humanitarian or scientific research.
Thursday 3/20: Sun enters Aries (9:57 AM Vernal Equinox until April 20th)
During the next month, we are more impulsive than usual. A feeling of rebirth permeates the air. Our fearlessness encourages us to new initiatives. Our excitement and joy for life create new beginnings.
Saturday 3/22: Mercury conjunct Neptune (1:16 PM)
A great day for healers, channelers and artists who feel very inspired. The veil between dimensions is thinner, allowing clearer contacts with the other side. Not the best day for dealing with matters requiring detailed attention to facts and figures. We could feel more dreamy, tired and sensitive than usual.
Wednesday 3/26: Mercury Trine Jupiter (6:11 AM)
Great for a long distance trip, higher education, philosophy, the law and religion. Our mind is more opened than usual. Gathering with friends expands our consciousness. Positive and lucrative opportunities open us to new horizons.
Thursday 3/27: Mercury Sextile Pluto (10:30 PM)
We have the ability to X-ray situations and people today. Great for deep scientific or metaphysical research. What was hidden is exposed. Secrets are revealed. Our minds are stronger and more persuasive than usual. Important to use our power wisely.
Saturday 3/29: Venus Trine Mars (12:05 PM), Venus Square Saturn (2:41 PM)
Today, we are drawn to creating a solid love relationship. The masculine and the feminine within are balanced. We are also more grounded in our views of what we need emotionally to feel secure and have stability in our lives. A day when we examine the truth of a deep relationship with integrity and practicality.
In Loving Light.
