Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus are still within a stone’s throw of being square. This means that in the zodiac these two planets are ninety degrees away from one another. As March progresses, the orb of influence increases along with the impact we feel.
As mentioned before, Saturn is structure and restriction while Uranus is freedom, independence and innovation. The battle between what has been traditional and that which needs to change has begun. The status quo is not going down without a fight and innovation will not give up. We are at the beginning of rebuilding the structures that are currently in place.
The events in Texas last month are a prime example that the current infrastructures across the planet are not sufficient to keep us safe. These and future events will be showing how we must change our infrastructure and our society.
If you have ever moved away from a place and tried to go back, it just was not the same. This is the way we are now on earth. The future is for all of us.
Mars moves through Gemini March 3 to April 23. Mars infuses Gemini with energy and enthusiasm. However, Mars in Gemini often gets scattered by the desire to do so many different things all at the same time. This transit is really good for Aquarius and Libra but brings challenges and frustration to Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces.
At the same time, Venus in Pisces is sixty degrees from Uranus heralding progress but the angle to Saturn brings people who want to keep us where we are in life.
Mercury and Jupiter together bring up great ideas and help for the masses March 4. Just watch out for big talk and make sure there are facts to back up the claim.
One week later, March 10, the Sun crosses over Neptune. Disinformation and compassionate acts will vie for attention. Compassion comes for Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio but Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius are best to ignore those random calls. Watch for data breaches and spam. Your best friend did not have their purple wig and credit cards stolen in London.
During March 13 to 24, Mars is forming angles to Uranus, Chiron and Saturn. We will all experience disruptions to our status quo. Use caution coloring outside the lines of life. During this time, we will discover ways to deal with our personal uncertainties and we will see ideas that can solve the massive problems that great changes in society bring. Some of us will want to do it now and the naysayers will dig their heels in as they have done before. The divides we have experienced are very evident during these days. Prepare for surprise events during this time.
The new Moon March 13 at 4:21 am CST in Pisces at twenty-three degrees brings new information as to what has happened in our lives and how we can make changes to help only ourselves and others. Exposés around the planet show that we must move on from past mistakes and corruption. Some of us will need rest, others will continue to churn away denial and deception in our lives in the days until the full Moon March 28.
Mercury moves through Pisces March 15 to April 3. Watch out for gossip and lies. If it is too good to be true then it is false. If it is so bad it is shocking, then it is possibly false. Use caution and do not believe everything you read or hear during this time. Influencers will try to influence. Ideas come up for helping one another.
The Sun is sextile Pluto March 16 and Venus is sextile Pluto March 18. This is a time when power prevails in a positive way. Mercury is sextile Uranus March 21. Plausible ideas and solutions come up especially for Taurus and Pisces.
March 20 - 26
Mars is trine Saturn March 21. This is a great time to put plans into place because we are very focused and passionate. Many of us will be called to lead at this time. Sort through what seems to be a mess and make sense out of chaos.
Mercury in Pisces is square Mars March 23. This creates arguments and maybe even an accident where water is concerned. Damage and water go together once again. Water can be destructive around this time.
The Sun enters Aries March 20 heralding in the new season and all sorts of new beginnings. Venus follows the Sun March 21 and the two connect in Aries March 25/26. Good times are in store, especially for Aries, Leo, Sagittarius.
The full Moon occurs March 28 at 1:49 pm CDT in Libra at 8 degrees. This full Moon angles Saturn, Uranus, and Chiron. This full Moon brings surprises and shocks that lead to great ideas to solve the current problems in our lives. Balance is a key word for this full Moon. Anyone born around last day or first day of any month are sure to feel the power for change generated at this full Moon. If you are shocked by events, just know it will turn out okay in the long run.
March 29 - 31
Mercury moving through Pisces is conjunct Neptune March 29. Compassionate acts and words are wonderful but do not be fooled by anyone. Compassion and deception will both be abundant. This can be an inspirational time.
At the same time, Venus and the Sun are sextile Saturn and angling Uranus and Chiron. Awkward events happen for Aries, Taurus, and Aquarius. This is not the time to do anything that will embarrass yourself. Give thought before taking any action so that you are not ostracized for stupid decisions. This is not the time to abandon the sinking ship.
All in all, March is a month of innovation versus restriction over and over. In our lives and the world stage, we will see great ideas and people that hate those ideas. We will see terrible ideas and people that love them. Uranus will win over Saturn because expansion and innovation cannot be stopped by antiquated solutions. This applies to you our individual lives and the world at large. Living through what will be written in history books is certainly a challenge.
I have been writing this column for over twenty-five years now and in order to better assist readers who are not students of astrology I offer some suggestions as to how to use the monthly summary.
Read the summary with your calendar that shows the whole month on one page. Read through the intro and make note of the days that I point out. Mark the new Moon and the full Moon. The days between the new Moon and the full Moon are when you generally want to start something that you want to grow. Do look at that Moon void chart and take a rest on those days. I have discovered that no matter what I plan, it turns out another way on a Moon void day. Anything you try to accomplish will turn out with unexpected results.
Make note of the three days before the new Moon. People usually get anxious during these days because the phone does not ring or they feel confused or simply nothing is happen. That is because it is wind down time before the new Moon. You will usually notice that the action of life picks up once the new Moon occurs. Also note the days that planets change directions, especially Mercury retrograde.
Hopefully these suggestions will give you a bit of a start to maneuvering through life with astrology.

As a part of helping readers live with astrology I have added a year long astrology calendar on the MOON VOID page. You can see all the voids month by month. Note the new Moons and the full Moons. The lunar quarters are listed and the aspects are noted on each day. If you are not astrology savvy you can at least have the Moon void information for the year. It's a pdf so you can download it.
