Astrological Forecast for March 2018

by Lou Valentino

March is a very busy month. We have 2 full Moon's, Jupiter turning retrograde breaking the pattern of all planets in direct motion since the beginning of 2018, Mars moves into Capricorn, Daylight Savings, Spring Equinox, International Astrology Day, Mercury turning retrograde, Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Passover and Easter on April 1st.

It is rare to have 2 full Moon's in one calendar month. We have 2 months in 2018 with 2 full Moon's (Blue Moon) in each month. Blue Moon means the second full Moon in one calendar month. It doesn't mean the Moon looks blue.

We start off March 1st with a full Moon in Virgo at 11 degrees at 7:51PM EST. This full Moon gives the signs of Virgo and Pisces a green light in all areas of life. Virgo is the sign that puts things in order and Pisces is the sign that dreams about order and wishes it could manifest order in a practical way. What does this mean? The dream can become a reality. Healing can take place.

Since we have Sun, Neptune, Mercury, Venus, part of fortune and Chiron all in Pisces, the full Moon in Virgo opposing both Sun and Neptune conjunction is a life saver. If Virgo was not their to heal the often victimized state of affairs associated with the sign of Pisces, we would have so much drama and not enough practical applications to heal the drama.

Those born with Sun, Moon or rising in the signs of Pisces and Virgo can take their deepest desires and dreams and make them come true. This is a time when those who have been victimized through gun violence to speak out and start the healing process to make constructive changes and find the balance (Oppositions)between common sense and extreme thought patterns.

Both Mercury and Venus enter the fire warrior sign of Aries on March 6th. This gives those with Sun, Moon or rising in Aries lots of passion/physical energies.

A great time if you have Aries Sun, Moon or rising to get plenty of physical exercise as well as taking the time to stop and listen to mother nature. Go for nature walks or sit quietly with focus on breath while sitting. This energy is active till end of May 13th when Mercury finally moves into Taurus.

We have had all major planets in direct motion since the beginning of 2018. Jupiter will be the first planet to turn retrograde on March 8th. Jupiter is currently moving through the sign of Scorpio. Those with Sun, Moon or rising in Scorpio are looking more inward to expand their horizons and grow into higher states of awareness till July 10,2018 when it stations direct at 13 degrees of Scorpio. A great time for experiencing inner bliss through various practices of meditation.

Daylight Saving starts at 2:00AM Sunday morning March 11th.

The new Moon on March 17th is in the sign of Pisces at 26 degrees (9:12AM EDT). A chart cast for Washington, D.C shows 5 planets in the 12th house normally ruled by Pisces. A continued time for those with Sun, Moon or rising in Pisces to start over again. New Moon's represent new beginnings. Pisces can begin to takeadvantage of what they reaped on the Virgo full Moon that started March off.

With Jupiter trine to both the Sun/Moon conjunction new Moon, Pisces has good luck from the inside out. Go for it Pisces.

Maybe those with Pisces energy landed a new job with better pay around the beginning of March.

Maybe they started a new relationship. Maybe they got a raise from their present job. What about a new life without alcohol, drug, cigarette or sexual addictions. A great time to affirm your commitments to making changes in your life that gives more life.

Water signs are the most addictive signs in the Zodiac and Pisces is at the top of the list. Whatever you gained during the full Moon on March 1st allows you more room to start new ways of life on this new Moon day.

Mars moves into Capricorn the same day of the new Moon in Pisces. Mars is exalted in Capricorn and this could be the time the government of America gets moving on ALL of the important issues Americans want to hear about. Mars will stay in Capricorn till May 16th, 2018. Those with Sun, Moon or rising inCapricorn will have more energy and drive to accomplish any goal. They need to be careful not to become workaholics during this time.

The Sun moves into the sign of Aries on March 20th at 12:15PM (EDT) and this starts the Spring Equinox. Happy Birthday to those born under the sign of Ariesand Happy Spring to everyone.

Mercury turns retrograde from March 22nd to April 15th in the sign of Aries. All Mercury retrogrades in 2018 will be in fire signs. Those with Sun, Moon or rising in Aries will have to watch the temper. They will need to learn the lesson of patience as most of the main planets are in Aries now. Breath deeply during the day when tensions build up. Be patient with outcomes in all areas of life.

The March for Life” will happen on March 24th. With so many planets in Aries, Moon in Cancer as well as Cancer rising, (Chart caste for 12Noon) we have an aggressive patriotic march that brings together mothers and their children (Cancer) to fight (Aries) for gun control, mental health issues and immigration if that is not cleared up by March 5th.

This March will most likely be the largest we have ever seen in the history of Americans protesting. However, Mercury will be in retrograde motion. Not a great time to get a message across. Their could be gun lovers who want to create tensions around this march but the march will be so huge it will overpower the other group from gaining momentum. Jupiter rules ethical laws and Scorpio wants change (transformation). The Phoenix will rise above the flames.

Palm Sunday is March 25th, followed by Good Friday on the 30th.

Venus enters Taurus on March 31st at 12:54AM just before a full Moon (Blue Moon) in Libra at 10 degrees (8:37AM) EDT. Venus is the natural ruler of both Taurus and Libra. If you have Sun, Moon or rising in either of these signs you are ready to create beauty and harmony into your life and others. Also, money is attracted to you so ask for that raise or play the lottery. This is also good for the sign of Scorpio as the good luck planet, Jupiter, is sextile to Pluto in Capricorn allowing opportunities for change and growth.

Relationships are important part of our social fabric. Libra is the natural ruler of marriage and all one to one partnerships including business. Libra wants to listen to everyone's point of view while Aries wants their own individual point of view to be heard. This combination on a full Moon creates all points of view heard and changes implemented.

This is a month when the signs of Pisces, Aries, Scorpio, Virgo and Capricorn, can grow in leaps and bounds. Taurus and Libra also get that chance on the last day of March into the middle of April.

Wishing everyone a very abundant spring filled with harmony and joy. A happy happy holiday season for all faiths. An American government that shows more compassion rather than divisions. We can do it this month. Create a world that we want to live in. Heaven on Earth.
