Stargazing — Week of March 4th through March 10th, 2019

Mar 4, 2019 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing


Changes are coming in March, make no mistake about it. A mantra for you is “I am safe, it’s only change.” The major change of the month is Uranus moving into Taurus for the next seven years. Then, on the 5th, Mercury retrogrades until March 28th and we turn our clocks back on the weekend. Whew! It’s not a good month to sign contacts or begin something new.

When Mercury goes retrograde it brings us the gift of review, revise, and renew. It’s our chance to review our projects and focus over the past three months, figure out what we need to do to adjust matters and make it better by getting back on track. It’s also a time of lost articles, luggage, and missed appointments. People out of the past can re-enter your life to settle matters, and you could reconnect with old friends again.

During Mercury retrograde it is important to get your ego out of the way and to remember that there is a higher power operating in your life. In other words, you need to be reminded that you cannot control everything. With Mercury in Pisces, the focus is on the film industry, spiritual matters, artistic projects and — most of all — forgiveness.

Venus just moved into Aquarius until the 26th. This energy is great for making new friends, connecting with existing friends, and opening to new groups and organizations. Aquarians like to participate in community projects. It’s time to enhance the friendship side of your relationships.

Monday opens with the friendly Aquarius Moon from the weekend, urging you to try something new and fresh. Mercury turns retrograde on Tuesday in psychic Pisces, bringing a time to open to a new and higher spiritual vision and open your heart. Take the time to meditate for your dreams to form and come true

The New Moon on March 6th is at 16 degrees Pisces. This is an interesting New Moon, and it is anyone’s guess how it will play out. There is a great deal of energy in Pisces now, which helps you practice forgiveness and compassion. It also guides and invites you open your intuition and higher vision.

At the same time, analytical Mercury just turned retrograde in space cadet Pisces until the 28th. A good use of this energy would be to take a short trip to a watery place to go beyond the veils of this material world, connect to the powerful universal energies, and determine where you higher self wants to take you next. Or maybe you just need to turn your brain off for a bit!

The other exciting and major factor this week is revolutionary Uranus moving into Taurus, the sign of security and money This energy will be with us into 2026 and signals an economic and financial revolution that will influence our world leaders and global markets for the next seven years. The last time Uranus was in Taurus was in the 1930’s, which brought about the Great Depression that preceded World War II. This time the shift could bring positive new changes in our currency, new ways of banking as well as amazing new technology that will revolutionize our world of transportation, hospital and healing, and better digital devices. We received a preview of this energy during the summer of 2018.

The Uranus sign shift joins the Pisces New Moon occurring at the same time, which adds extra juice to this startling and powerful energy. Your value system is being shaken up to make room for innovative new concepts, and that includes new people coming into your life; and many are leaving or have left in the past several months. The seeds planted by Uranus move into Taurus reminds us to follow the Golden Rule — Do unto others what you would want them to do for you,

Vow that for March, you will take stock of what is important to you and do what needs to be done to released and make room for something fresh and new.

Get physical from Thursday afternoon through Saturday under an Aries moon. It is good for taking on projects, but don’t make them too big as Aries has a bad habit of not finishing everything it starts; great beginnings and lousy endings.

The Moon is in its quiet void of course phase all day Saturday which is not the best time for important purchases or starting new projects. It is great for introspective work, although Saturday does have good social planetary aspects. On Saturday night-Sunday early AM, this change-packed week ends with the ending of Daylight Savings time, Spring ahead and Fall back. Remember to set your clocks forward one hour before turning out the light Saturday night. 

A Taurus moon on Sunday and Monday brings sensual pleasures and possibly accomplishing tasks that have tangible results.
