RUNE OF THE MONTH: The blank Rune, the mystery.
RUNE OF THE MONTH: The blank Rune, the mystery. This month, we are entering the unknown, the uncharted territory that reveals itself when we no longer project our past unto the future, and allow our hearts to guide us into what manifests, one step at a time!
This month starts with Mercury's retrogration at 17º26' Pisces until it turns direct on March 17 at 1:41 AM at 5º40' Pisces.
This month starts with Mercury's retrogration at 17º26' Pisces until it turns direct on March 17 at 1:41 AM at 5º40' Pisces. Its shadow period (the time it takes for Mercury to return to the exact degree it started its retrogration on) continues until April 6. Past and present could overlap. We are now asked to let go of the old, to close doors that no longer serve us, and bid farewell to those people whose energy is not in alignment with our own. It is a time of coming to terms with what was and being clear on the direction we are now taking and what/whom will best support and enrich our new journey. We could feel like we are floating in a dream where parallel realities are vividly surfacing in our present. Our thoughts and feelings are manifesting very fast, forcing us to be extra clear on our values. A truly magical retrogradation helping dissolve the veil between dimensions. A time to free ourselves from old grief and go to the depths of our truth.
Saturn still retrograde till July 7. The shadow period continues until Oct 14. It travels this month from 11º26' to 10º13' Scorpio.
These two degrees are symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by "A drowning man is being rescued", and "An official embassy ball". Those individuals who were lingering behind and not fully grasping the necessity to ascend, are being assisted so that they may join with the light. As more and more people around the globe are waking up to their divine truth, humanity is once again celebrating its oneness.
Saturn and Pluto who have been in mutual reception (in each other's signs) since October 6, 2012, continue to be this whole month until December 23rd, 2014.
A period of 2 years where we are likely to become more selective regarding whom and what we give our energy and time to. We seek quality rather than quantity in all our social exchanges and life choices.

Our Intentional Meditation
Our intentional meditation started on February 25 with the Full Moon in Virgo..
On the New Moon in Pisces on 3/10, 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 out at exactly 12:51 PM (you can put them out up to several hours prior to that time). Once that moment has passed (even if several hours later, or the next morning), staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams…
On 3/27, place as many blank sheets as you will have intentions out to be charged by the Full Moon in Virgo at exactly 2:27 AM. Once that moment has passed, put them away in a folder until the next New Moon in Aries on 4/10 at 2:35 AM.
Friday 3/1: Sun Sextile Pluto (5:35 AM), Sun Sextile Saturn (12:31 PM)
A day to go beneath appearances with depth and seriousness. Cooperation, kindness, patience and self-discipline strengthen our authority naturally and inspire the respect of others. Today's accomplishments lead to greater stability.
Monday 3/4: Sun Conjunct Mercury (4:58 AM), Venus Square Jupiter (5:53 AM)
A wonderful day for communicating clearly. Great for making long overdue phone calls, connecting with people we haven't seen in a while, writing and socializing. We should just beware of excesses, in food, in spending, in pleasures… We may feel overly exuberant and not always aware of our limits.
Wednesday 3/6: Venus Sextile Pluto (6:01 PM), Venus Trine Saturn (7:07 PM), Mercury Conjunct Venus (8:54 PM), Mercury Trine Saturn (11:17 PM)
A good love relationship is likely to become deeper with this transit. If we have been on the edge, this transit could make us become very honest with ourselves, and face what we need with greater clarity. Our truth is shared today with love and awareness. We are able to convey with efficiency what is important to us and elicit a positive response from others.
Thursday 3/7: Mercury Sextile Pluto (0:26 AM)
Our extrasensory abilities are heightened today. We could experience profound phenomena and X-ray situations and people. Best however not to be confrontational today. The more we go with the flow with intelligence and wisdom, the more likely we are to further our goals.
Friday 3/8: Saturn Sextile Pluto (0:03 AM)
We gain control of our lives through pleasant negotiations and positive efficiency. Our willingness to take on more responsibilities helps us gain the support of people who recognize our talents and give us a chance to further our dreams.
Saturday 3/9: Mercury Square Jupiter (7:38 PM)
A great day to give or attend a lecture, or gather with philosophically inclined friends. We seek to expand our cultural horizons. Although attractive, traveling is not advised today. Our business judgment could be somewhat faulty. Not the best day either for financial investments as we could be overoptimistic and blindsided to elements that are not in our highest interest. This transit is constructively used by remaining cheerful in the face of adversity.
Sunday 3/10: Mercury turns Direct (1:03 PM)
Communication shifts from the inner planes to the outer, but there could still be some confusion today… lost keys, messages erased without having been read, missed planes… Tomorrow, all will go back to normality.
Wednesday 3/20: Sun enters Aries (Vernal Equinox at 4:02 AM until March 19)
The next month is about new beginnings, becoming innocent and leaping dynamically into action with our hearts wide open. There is a sense that everything is possible and that we are truly masters of our destiny.
Thursday 3/21: Venus enters Aries (8:15 PM until April 14)
During the next 3 weeks, we express our feelings very spontaneously. Romance and passion are strong motivators. We feel ready to conquer the world with our love. New inspiration stimulates us to more powerfully direct forms of self-expression.
Friday 3/22: Mars Conjunct Uranus (11:17 AM)
Today is a day for energetic action in order to improve situations that were previously challenging. We confront limitations with restlessness, independence, willfulness and courage. We should however be careful while driving, as today's energies could cause recklessness and make others react in an erratic way.
Tuesday 3/26: Mars Sextile Jupiter (3:27 AM), Mars Square Pluto (8:44 PM)
A day to be very honest and stand in the highest integrity. Open hearted, courageous cooperation is more effective than manipulation. Our positive, direct attitude opens many doors, revealing greater horizons. An opportunity to expand financially, as well as philosophically, is either self-created, or presents itself as a result of past efforts.
Thursday 3/28: Mercury Trine Saturn (2:48 AM), Sun Conjunct Venus (10:05 AM), Venus Conjunct Uranus (4:01 PM), Sun Conjunct Uranus (5:38 PM)
A day for serious, efficient and wise thinking and communicating. Unexpected new circumstances reroute existing plans, freeing us from the known. Our social life becomes very exciting. Unusual people who walk to the sound of their own drummer could cross our path, introducing us to new ideas. A sudden romantic attraction is possible. Although not necessarily long-lived, it redirects our course and is liberating.
Friday 3/29: Mercury Square Jupiter (9:56 AM), Mercury Sextile Pluto (11:31 AM)
Blind trust, especially if it leads to overextending ourselves financially is not advised today. We seek profound answers to our questions. Best to keep a low profile and seek cooperation with others. A previously hidden piece of information, could be revealed.
Sunday 3/31: Sun Square Pluto (8:03 PM), Venus Square Pluto (3:10 AM), Venus Sextile Jupiter (7:49 AM)
A battle of wills could test our serenity and inner power. Not the best day to share our feelings too openly. In the face of challenges, compromise, patience and reserve help us keep things light. The more we remain optimistic and serene, the easier it is to clear previous disagreements. If we do not fall prey to any excess, our social life is stimulating and fun.
Wishing you all the best.
In Loving Light.
