March 2015 Astrology Forecast
The day-by-day astrology forecast for March 2015
March 1: A passionate trio of planets cluster around the lunar South Node, the theoretical point in space symbolizing karma and past events. The spunky threesome is in turn part of an even more fabulous grand trine in fire signs along with Jupiter and Saturn. The stellar configuration is a boon for making new acquaintances and all sorts of group activities, especially those that raise consciousness levels. With the Pisces Sun conjunct Neptune this is a fine day to investigate or practice the esoteric arts, be creative or simply drift and dream as Spirit moves you. The more focused evening mood favors getting organized and planning for the busy week ahead.

March 2: Put your colorful glad rags on and get ready for fun. The waxing Moon is in playful Leo, where she happily engages a host of other planets in a dazzling fire sign grand trine. These complimentary stars instantly build character and boost confidence. The auspices for business and all manner of story telling, dramatic improvisation and creative, visionary thinking are excellent. While friends, associates and social networks are a source of strength, wisdom and experience throughout the day, the pure joy of love and friendship reaches new heights this evening. You'll want to spend time with your wittiest, most charming and enlightened buddies. Don't be surprised if a long ago pal comes calling.
Moon in Leo.
March 3: Well before dawn's first gray light the waxing Leo Moon begins a lengthy void of course period. However, as we awaken expectations are great. The sense of anticipation is intensified by a sunrise trine between optimistic Jupiter and Uranus, the planet of surprises. This wonderful aspect is like lightning in a bottle. If we believe something amazing is about to happen, it becomes infinitely more likely it will. All the same, with the Moon void of course and Jupiter retrograding, it may take additional time before the full extent of a blessing, gift or talent is recognized. Think and dream big today. Be open to lofty ideas and fresh opportunities, but save the serious negotiating, decision-making and costly expenditures for another, more well-defined and appropriate time.
Moon in Leo v/c 3:47AM-12:00AM, Jupiter trine Uranus.
March 4: Spiking Full Moon fever and a very active Venus combine to generate joyful morning exhilaration. The goddess of love is conjunct Uranus, a harbinger of serendipitous, friendly and loving meetings. With both stars also nicely aligned to Jupiter and Saturn, something special is in the air. Even love at first sight encounters have long term potential. Relationships are more challenging later in the day. Boundary issues may surface as ulterior motives become more evident. Stay true to your principles and your heart. Don't make false promises or get drawn into an uncertain situation.
Moon in Leo v/c 12:00AM-6:58AM Moon enters Virgo, Venus trine Jupiter, Venus conjunct Uranus, Venus square Pluto.
March 5: The intensity of morning activity is off the charts, as the Full "Worm" Moon in Virgo is exact at 1:05PM. Both the opposing Sun and Moon are favorably aligned with Pluto, suggesting that co-operation is the best path to resolving power struggles and reaching lasting agreements. If you are feeling compelled to put your two cents into a heated discussion, be constructive and kind. The mid-afternoon sees the Moon go void of course and a less aggressive mood takes hold. This latter part of the day is good for reflection and considering various options. Do research and get input from trusted advisors as new plans are likely to slowly emerge.

March 6: Puttering around the gym, home or office may consume more time than anticipated. The void of course Virgo Moon puts many folks on a self-improvement course. Organizing, cleaning up and de-cluttering are worthy pursuits, as are health related activities. Our bodies need regular maintenance if they are to function efficiently. With attention spans shorter than usual, distractions can quickly and easily arise. Do your best to finish up work, workouts and errands before evening. That's when the Moon enters sociable Libra. An uptick in energy occurs as well as a greater need for companionship.
Moon in Virgo v/c 12:00AM-7:52PM Moon enters Libra.
March 7: Partners and facing the varied requirements of being in relationships are the way forward today. The Libra Moon is passing by her own North Node. Give those who love, inspire and support you the credit they deserve. Remember, Libra's symbol is the scales of balance and justice. Extend a helping hand. Fair play, caring and sharing are highlights of healthy relationships. These truths are driven home this evening when the Moon tests fiery Mars and Uranus. Immature souls are best avoided but if that isn't possible, turn the other cheek. Take the high road and skedaddle. There are other, more cooperative and enlightened souls willing and available to share in your good times.
Moon in Libra.
March 8: Even with the loss of an hour's sleep as we switch to Daylight Savings Time, morning get togethers are lively. Accept a spur of the moment invitation or, if you're planning a gathering, try something fresh and new. There could be a headstrong individual involved. Don't take self-centered behavior as a personal affront or rejection. It's far more likely that a friend is simply excited by a new challenge or wrapped up in their own fancy. Feelings are expressed fluently and succinctly this afternoon and evening so listen carefully. This latter part of the day is also a good time to catch up on paperwork and make arrangements for the coming week. The Libra Moon goes void of course after nightfall, ushering in a lazier, more restful mood.
Moon in Libra v/c 9:24PM-12:00AM.
March 9: Starting a new work week under a void of course Moon requires mental toughness. Expect the early hours to feel labored. By mid-morning the Moon has arrived in Scorpio and an energetic upturn may be noted. A persistent and spirited grand trine in fire signs helps to carry the day. The pending lunar trine to mystical Neptune fosters altruism as well as genuinely heartfelt compassion for those who suffer or are disadvantaged. With firebrand Mars overtaking Uranus and also testing Pluto later this week, extra careful handling of sensitive data, computers, machines and automobiles is strongly advised. Altruism has its place, but self-control and careful planning are most important at this time. Remember to breathe. A slower pace is recommended. Impulsive acts may not produce expected results, given the current celestial patterns.
Moon in Libra v/c 12:00AM-9:10AM Moon enters Scorpio.
March 10: Whether happy, sad or somewhere in between, feelings tend to be intense. Jolly Jupiter, known as the planet of excess, receives an early morning trine from Mars and a testing midday square from the Scorpio Moon. The trine favors bold thoughts and actions. Because Jupiter is in outgoing, showy Leo and the Moon is in the much more private sign of transformations, some reactions can seem inappropriate. Look through appearances to discern what's really going on. For example bravado may hide insecurity, or boasting a plea for help or understanding. Fortunately, deeper awareness is encouraged by harmony between the Moon and Pluto, while a lunar trine to the Pisces Sun stimulates compassion. A loving heart eases many tensions, but be extra careful if you're traveling tonight.
Moon in Scorpio, Mars trine Jupiter.
March 11: A dangerous conjunction of fiery Mars and unpredictable Uranus is compounded by both planets being in square to obsessive Pluto. Slow your pace. Be super careful when dealing with sensitive issues like finances and decision-making with partners. Caution is also advised around machines of any sort. The alignment may roil world markets as well as political alliances. Devastating Earth changes are possible. On the other hand, the formidable energies can be harnessed and used to advantage. Teamwork can be impressive, if everyone is in agreement and pulling in the same direction. Another key to using today's star power wisely is putting the good of others before your own. Practice detachment and keep your ego in check.
Moon in Scorpio v/c 3:46PM-7:30PM Moon enters Sagittarius, Mars conjunct Uranus, Mars square Pluto.
March 12: Calmer skies prevail today. The easy-going, optimistic Sagittarius Moon is part of an upbeat and energetic fire sign grand trine. Any late-morning laziness, excuse-making or confusion is short lived. After the noon hour moods and motivation improve dramatically. Silver linings appear as worries vanish. Old friends and acquaintances emerge in surprising fashion. If you've got the energy, attend an evening meeting or social gathering. Folks are feeling frisky. Minds are open and more receptive than usual. New ideas spread like wildfire. What you learn may impact and transform your entire world view, much for the better.
Moon in Sagittarius, Mercury enters Pisces.
March 13: While the early morning hours spin by smoothly and quietly, tensions rise as noon nears. The Sagittarius Moon and Pisces Sun are at odds and as a result some folks feel stressed out trying to handle everything on their plate at once. Take a hint from Saturn. The ringed Planet has stationed, in preparation for tomorrow's retrograde turn. Do likewise. Slow down enough so as to give each and every job the full attention it rightfully deserves. If it's worth doing, it's worth doing well. Evening brings a cheerful lunar trine to Venus. Take your sweetheart out on a date or treat yourself to something special. A little celebrating is in order before a mellow mood takes hold around sunset.

March 14: The Moon is in down to Earth Capricorn, making this an excellent day to tackle chores and address weighty practical matters. Coincidentally Saturn, the planet of commitments and necessities, is beginning a retrograde that lasts until early August. The directional shift could be a precursor to new ways of thinking or a step backwards, to a worldview rooted in ancient, but narrow-minded traditions. The next week is filled with earth-shaking astrological developments so think twice before announcing your version of ultimate truth. A lovely late afternoon lunar sextile to mysterious Neptune provides a healthy measure of awe and wonder. Let serious matters rest. Lose and rediscover yourself in romance, a film or mother nature.
Moon in Sagittarius v/c 12:00AM-2:40AM Moon enters Capricorn, Saturn retrograde.
March 15: The morning hours can be challenging for would be sleepers as well as early birds. The Capricorn Moon passes by Pluto and the two stars are simultaneously at odds with Uranus and Mars. Don't be surprised of you awaken with a start. Upsets and restless feelings don't pass until late morning. From then until late tonight the Moon is easing into a soothing sextile to the Pisces Sun. As a result, it is easier to cultivate inner peace throughout the second half of the day, which is naturally more relaxed. Relationships are also far more enjoyable. Nurture both yourself and important friendships as best you can. The coming week brings impressive tests and revelations. Personal composure and strong partnerships will be invaluable.
Moon in Capricorn.
March 16: The seventh and final square between Uranus and Pluto is exact today. The historic alignment, ongoing since 2012, is the stuff of which political revolutions, leaps of consciousness and vast social movements are born. With the Moon currently in visionary Aquarius the time is right for choosing which path you'll follow, the reactionary one of obsessive Pluto or the more progressive trail of libertarian Uranus. During the 1930's the most recent similar series of Uranus/Pluto squares gave rise to Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal as well as Hitler's Third Reich. It's about power, who controls it and what best serves the interests of the majority of people. The same principles apply to our daily life choices. Look for ways to extricate yourself from dead-end thinking, no-win situations and other antiquated systems. Personal liberation beckons.
Moon in Capricorn v/c 4:02AM-6:14AM Moon enters Aquarius, Mercury square Saturn, Uranus square Pluto.
March 17: Loving Venus enters her own sign of Taurus early today. Her change of sign is a breath of springtime. Think songbirds and flower blossoms. The Moon continues to make her way across cooly analytical Aquarius, where she promotes friendly behavior and open-mindedness. Harmonious lunar angles to Uranus and Mars reinforce progressive impulses and bold moves. These aspects also help awaken a sense of possibility, a feeling that challenges can be met. The early afternoon sees the Moon go void of course and momentum slows down. Plan to tackle your most important tasks before then. Take a more laid back approach later in the day. Friends may be moved to discuss creative as well as spiritual subjects as mental Mercury approaches mysterious Neptune and the fantasy factors increase. Tonight's dreaming promises to be memorable.
Moon in Aquarius v/c 2:18PM-12:00AM, Venus enters Taurus.
March 18: The early morning hours unfold in a dreamy atmosphere. Mental Mercury is conjunct mystical Neptune and while the pairing can make some folks turn to escapist outlets, spiritually attuned souls feel more deeply connected to all that is. With the Pisces Moon also favorably aligned to Venus, hearts are open and empathic. Warm feelings and stellar intentions are tested after lunchtime. By then the Moon is at odds with Saturn and also conjunct nebulous Neptune. Boundary issues, guilt, blame and other accusations can be hurtful. Because a complete solar eclipse is less than two days away, it is best to avoid jumping to conclusions. New details will likely emerge in the coming days. Do your best to suspend judgment and concentrate on getting more facts.
Moon in Aquarius v/c 12:00AM-6:58AM Moon enters Pisces, Mercury conjunct Neptune.
March 19: Today is the last full day of the astrological year. The Sun is at the final degree of Pisces, the Sign of the Two Fishes. One fish swims boldly upstream, the other rides the current down to the sea. In keeping with the dual nature of the sign, it's time to consider what has been experienced, accomplished and learned while also keeping an eye on the future and what it may hold. Coincidentally, this also happens to be the last day of the monthly lunar cycle, so we again are reminded to complete what we can before we start anything new. The Pisces Moon elicits a great many sentimental feelings and mood swings. It's easy to get lost in a reverie. As the great Piscean scientist Albert Einstein noted, "I never made one of my discoveries through the process of rational thinking." Let your stream of consciousness meanderings take you where they will. You could be pleasantly surprised.
Moon in Pisces.
March 20: What a momentous day! Today features two seminal events. An hour before sunrise the Pisces New Moon totally eclipses the Sun at the Zodiac's very last degree. The event will prove revelatory for some and possibly present great difficulties for others. It may be obvious that a long time situation, attitude or relationship has outlived its usefulness. A mid-afternoon lunar trine to Saturn can show what actions to take. However, eclipses often bring previously hidden details to light so it may be wise to wait a few days before announcing or embarking on a new course. Evening sees the Sun reach Aries, marking the start of spring and the new astrological year. Happy New Year! After the winter we've had here in New England, both new cycles are worthy of applause and celebration. Plan on having fun tonight.

March 21: Early birds may be faced with a multitude of chores and serious concerns. Fortunately, the "in a hurry" Aries Moon's sunrise conjunction with Uranus and square to Pluto is powerfully motivating. However, don't get ahead of yourself. Set a pace. Take things one step a time. Be methodical. If you're on the highway, drive carefully. Leave some wiggle room in your schedule. An unexpected delay or detour could necessitate a change of plans. Be sure to inform partners of any changes. The fast pace of events continues throughout the daylight hours and into early evening when the Moon forms a final conjunction with feisty Mars and then goes void of course. Suddenly, urgent needs are not so urgent. Nighttime activities play out in a mellower atmosphere.
Moon in Aries v/c 6:51PM-12:00AM.
March 22: As dawn breaks the Moon enters Taurus, the calm, steadying sign of the bull. Peace and pleasure prevail as the Moon spends most of the day moving into conjunction with loving Venus. It's time to enjoy the people you love, objects of beauty you find around you, wonderful music and the tastiest, most indulgent foods you can eat. A film, a scenic vista in mother nature, a performance piece or a visit to an art gallery, all of these can make an haunting impression and transport imaginations to glorious places. Mental Mercury's late afternoon sextile to Pluto underscores the importance and power of positive thinking. Dreams and pragmatism merge seamlessly.
Moon in Aries v/c 12:00AM-6:40AM Moon enters Taurus, Mercury sextile Pluto.
March 23: We're fast out of the starting gate this morning. The Taurus Moon forms a quick series of energizing aspects with Jupiter, Pluto and Mercury. The astro omens favor those with practical concerns. These early morning hours are great for bouncing ideas off of co-workers and associates. Teamwork is highly productive. Underused or overlooked resources can save the day. However, the pace slows dramatically well before noon. The Moon is void of course. There's less clarity and commitment as the afternoon wears on. A pending sextile between Venus and Neptune helps to keep spirits up. Genuinely kind and generous impulses are also felt. There just isn't much impetus to act on them. Relax and enjoy the sweetness in life.
Moon in Taurus 10:24AM-12:00AM.
March 24: The wee hours of the morning may bring messages from the astral and spiritual planes. Venus is actively engaged with Neptune, the planetary gateway to dream realms and awakenings of the heart. As the working day gets under way the Moon settles into Gemini. Lunar accord with the Aries Sun fosters a vibrant mood. Minds are sharp. Ideas and comments spring forth with noticeable speed and regularity. There's much to be said and learned. A late afternoon lunar opposition to Saturn warrants caution. Be selective in voicing opinions. Energy may suddenly seem to vanish. Evening commuters could face weather-related delays. Take care if you're out and about tonight.
Moon in Taurus v/c 12:00AM-9:22AM Moon enters Gemini, Venus sextile Neptune.
March 25: A stirring solar trine to Saturn as well as upbeat lunar aspects make this a very productive day. The morning begins under the Gemini Moon's sextile to optimistic Jupiter. Simply put, this is a good omen. It builds inner faith and confidence which in turn attracts "lucky" breaks and other, usually well-earned opportunities. An early afternoon lunar sextile to Uranus adds serendipitous encounters and innovative thinking to the day's proceedings. Ambitions are served by the previously mentioned trine between the Aries Sun and Saturn. A powwow with a boss or respected elder can be fruitful. Late night conversations can be tricky. The Moon is testing mental Mercury. Extra effort may be needed to describe complicated feelings and ideas.
Moon in Gemini, Sun trine Saturn.
March 26: The early hours are filled with zest but then, before most folks report to work, the Gemini Moon goes void of course. Minds become unfocused and more easily distracted. Words are less convincing. For efficiency's sake, focus on handling routine matters. If you have time on your hands, indulge in creative thinking, writing or self-introspection. The void of course period ends during the mid-afternoon when the Moon enters Cancer and feelings and instincts grow stronger. Imaginations get busy. Trust your gut hunches. Low level angst can be a factor tonight. The clan oriented Moon is moving into a challenging position with the more independent Aries Sun. Try to strike a balance between caring for others and honoring your own personal needs.
Moon in Gemini v/c 8:35AM-3:45PM Moon enters Cancer.
March 27: During the wee hours of the morning the First Quarter Moon in Cancer may contribute to a restless night. By dawn's light more tranquil vibrations are felt. Some hopes may be pinned on social plans for the coming weekend. Daytime relations are chummy. The Moon is in harmony with Venus, strengthening affectionate ties. The alignment is also good for beauty treatments and spa visits. Evening brings definite tensions. Opposing Pluto and squaring Uranus, the Moon can set off all kinds of flare-ups. Petty arguments are best nipped in the bud. Persist and the risk of serious damage to a friendship is quite real. Venus is also in a square to Jupiter, increasing the desire for fun but also the tendency to exaggerate. Moderation in all things is advisable.
Moon in Cancer, First Quarter Moon in Cancer 3:43AM, Venus square Jupiter.
March 28: Matters close to home and heart are naturally of greater concern while the Moon visits Cancer. Clean and spruce up your surroundings. Plan an improvement project. Spend time with family members and close friends or invite the neighbors over for an afternoon beverage. The PM is also a good time to make phone calls or send texts. Tonight's stars are prickly. The Moon is at odds with fiery Mars and tempers may flare. Give others permission to be themselves. Alone time can be beneficial for those feeling stressed out or impatient. Parties and other get togethers may fizzle out well before midnight as the Moon is sailing void of course. Retreat to the nest for late night resting and relaxing.
Moon in Cancer v/c 9:58PM-12:00AM.
March 29: Today the playful Leo Moon activates a wondrous grand trine configuration in fire signs. Astrologically, this is a genuinely happy state of affairs, like winning a sweepstakes or lottery jackpot or watching fireworks on the 4th of July. The world seems bright and bursting with promise. Experience is a source of wisdom and confidence. Traditions are comforting. We understand the ways of the world. Good news may arrive at any time, even late tonight. The mysterious healing power of Love is also making its presence felt as Venus nears a potent trine to transformational Pluto. A kiss, caress, kind word or thoughtful deed can have far greater impact than you imagine.
Moon in Cancer v/c 12:00AM-1:48AM Moon enters Leo.
March 30: A rush to please others offers some early morning gratification but know when enough has been said or done. There's just no pleasing some folks, no matter how far you put yourself out. The Leo Moon forms a brilliant late morning trine to Uranus and then goes void of course for the remainder of the day. The trine may occasion a flurry of activity, spur of the moment decision-making as well as some quirky alliances. By lunch time there's no mistaking it, the Moon is disengaged and events have slowed while moods have mellowed. With mental Mercury changing signs late tonight, put off decisions and costly financial outlays until tomorrow. When it comes to practical concerns, stay with tried and true routines. Of course, for artists and dreamers inner flights of fancy can be immensely creative and enjoyable.
Moon in Leo v/c 9:57AM, Venus trine Pluto, Mercury enters Aries.
March 31: A waxing but void of course Leo Moon holds sway over much of the day. As a result the morning hours feel lackadaisical and less than satisfying to many people. During the noon hour the day takes a dramatically different turn. First, fiery Mars enters earthy Taurus. Necessity spurs motivation and a stronger commitment to get one's worldly affairs in order. By early afternoon the Moon enters VIrgo where she compliments Mars via an enlivening trine aspect. Expect a boost in productivity during this period. An increase in earnings is also possible. The pace can be exhilarating. Fatigue sets in this evening due to a lunar square with Saturn. Don't burn your candle at both ends. Get your much needed and well-deserved rest.
Moon in Leo v/c 12:00AM-2:12PM Moon enters Virgo, Mars enters Taurus.
