MARCH IS AN EMOTIONAL MONTH, BUT THERE’S OPPORTUNITY FOR HEALING AND CLEARING OF BLOCKS
With many planets in Pisces in March, it can shape up to be a very emotional and intuitive month. On March 6th, Mars enters Sagittarius and we find ourselves handling numerous projects at once. This is a good time for studying, particularly on an academic level. On the 8th a new super moon has a total solar eclipse. This new moon in Pisces (the only total solar eclipse in 2016 and visible in East Asia, Australia and The Pacific) will have many of us seeking time alone with our feelings. Solar eclipses force us to contemplate options we would never usually explore. Although this can cause a passing disorder, it’s wise to remember that eclipses are there to bring positives into our lives!
Mercury conjuncts Neptune in Pisces on the 11th and this is a very cognitive time. On March 16th expansive Jupiter makes a trine to Pluto. This mixture of energies sets up an outstanding three-week period when we should reach for conclusive outcomes in healing, travel, legal matters, and even find that perfect partner for support. March 23rd sees the full moon in Libra and we naturally put a good deal of energy into our relationships.
