March 1st, crazy weather, war drums, quake and volcano uptick, and new impulses to realise yourself before more crazy weather appears. New Moon in Pisces, Mars goes retrograde from 27 Libra to 9 Libra mid May. Mars will trigger the grand cross in cardinal signs end of April; so these days critical to making peace not war. Stocks jittery this coming week? We may see shaky markets. War drums continue to bang into April? More crazy weather too? Yoga and meditation for peace, prayer, may be the most appropriately important thing to do these days. Taking a deep internal breath to reckon one’s heart as a compass to greater identity and destiny, better futures, is key. Here, the way out is the way in, retreat and muse on the eternal verities. Unless of course you are a heavyweight player jumping into one of the many vortexes of crisis opportunity to sway the vote, lay back and ponder the inner sun. Heavy karma being worked out for many these days into next few months. Good time to manifest one’s true self, destiny and purpose. Time to free oneself from ‘same old same old’ repeat offenders or psychic chains of wrong habit, friends, diet, or thinking. Patience and compassion for those in chaotic vortexes and negative experience welcome.
March 2nd, take stock in your inner self, your own heart/mind/soul in harmony with the Spirit of the world. Unstable times for world markets and sense of peace and security. Good time for yoga/meditation/reading and pondering the inevitable opportunities to change, grow, learn. Saturn retrograde is a reveal of what makes us feel grounded, secure, fathered. Venus in Capricorn squares Mars in Libra making for intense love/sex energy as well as wanting right relationship, partnership, meaningful dialogue. Love quarrels come from making demands on others rather than looking to oneself for change, growth, new learning. Saturn in Scorpio in mutual reception to Pluto in Capricorn has kept leadership intact and investments/markets controlled or sane. Saturn retrograde may question what is true security or investment. Spiritually speaking we need to invest in our own learning, in our own inner flowering, growing wiser, more loving. Yet, the outer need for security, food, water, air, shelter, good friends, is important too; and this outer world is getting a bit shaky and in need of new revelation, higher truths and love, and just plain out simple honesty and practicality. Saturn/Pluto mutual reception has kept the world somewhat sane and the economy controlled if not continuing to grow. As Saturn goes retrograde, those in authority or leadership may need to internally review the short and long-term plan. Taking a breather from intense conflict to reassess the long-term consequences may be good. April’s Grand Cross may force a play or action, but now is the time to slow things down. One’s personal desires or wishes may be frustrated with Saturn retrograde in Scorpio. Investments need play it safe. Last few days and next, many changes of gears or reversals, endings and new beginnings. See Youtube ASTROLOGY FOR 2014, Robert Thibodeau’s December 10, 2013 talk predicting weather, politics, Putin, and more.
March 4th, Moon opposes Mars retrograde triggering a forewarning of what is to come in the coming couple months. Avoid aggression, anger, hate. Bravery to be oneself, courage to tell the truth and protect the little ones, the earth too, is important here. Much rash negative speech and news, rowdy behaviour.
March 6th all ahead go for many, a shift of gears to higher octave. Jupiter bangs its way forward through Cancer and water signs to enter Leo in July when many a positive event takes place. Others might feel a need to purify or make preparations for renewed sense of self and inner worth heart shine. Sudden realisations, subtle earth changes felt in inner heart/soul, sudden shift in weather hopefully for the better, huge social upheavals, (this is a quake/volcano uptick week), weather and stock market shake ups or testings; yet somehow the future looks bright and one feels a positive jolt of inspiration to try again to make things better. Perhaps warring elements take a break till end of month into 8 days of April where higher angels need to work their miracles again. Maybe we will get lucky with co-creative peace making during this time and the coming weekend. Jupiter goes direct giving go ahead to buy, sell, proceed with individual immediate plans while attending and attaining long-awaited goals and status by the time Jupiter enters Leo in July/August. Then all fire signs begin to prosper. Till then WATER Signs favoured with good luck. Think July/August when making big plans, not March/April. Now is the time to catch up, clean up, fix up, heal, metamorph and inwardly grow outwards. A ‘more you get into it, the more you get out of it’ time. Things happening now, this last week or even last few months, now reaches peak and climactic eruption or turning point into April when the two lunar eclipses April 16th and 29th affecting cardinal and fixed signs the most, re-define reality and world endeavour once again.
March 10th-11th, Mercury squares Saturn: reality hits hard, so have patience learning how to interact, participate. Face the facts and be true to yourself yet patient in expression and delivery. Delays, blocks, obstructions, or are you just dealing with one horse jump after another. Fixed signs feel this the most. Those who plan for the future have more flexibility when the future hits them with surprises. Think deep and slow to find sureness in future actions. Good for long sure slow wise thinking. Good for catching up and doing paper work, or making honest simple acknowledgements to yourself, others. Avoid negatives, use only constructive criticism. Others moody or depressed. Humour and spiritual light heartedness could be helpful in some areas.
March 13th Sun trines Saturn: success in long-term ventures and adventures. The true blue, good, tried, come through. Good for making long-term plans and having honest conversations, decisions, contracts, work. Some shining hearts seem to last forever, those friends live in our innermost hearts and souls. Appreciation is key word today, along with blessing grace.
March 14th Mercury trine Mars: great for communication, networking, new ideas, innovations, breakthroughs in discovery and getting point across. Strong truths and voicings. Good for exercise and making new friends, making headway, sharing future views and making good negotiations, agreements.
March 16th Full Moon in Virgo: Avoid unnecessary criticism and sour notes. Good time to heal, catch up, clean, do home work, purify, exercise, eat healthy food, and work on the self to help others. There is no perfection, only wholeness. Complete thoughts before voyaging on the new. Constructive critique may work to further plans, especially if it’s a positive self critique.
March 18th Venus sextile Uranus: playful sexual aspect, take care not to go out of bounds or offend. Almost too much is happening at once, very busy time. Take a breath and stay in the flow, ride the wave to new ecstatic insights at play.
March 20th Sun into Aries, Moon in Scorpio occultation of Saturn. Cut out negative unneeded habits or repeat offenders, or friends who offend and take advantage. Don’t start wars or conflicts but lay out the event horizon and the consequences of misbehaviour. Listen to warning signs that you may need to slow down and take a breath, a break from stressful situations. Listen quietly for messages from dreams, intuitions, or higher worlds calling. Avoid fallback, backsliding, taking too cold of view or behaviour.
March 22nd Beware of false or broken promises. Be clear in speech and read the small print. Take care in purchases and accounting matters. Mercury conjunct Neptune in Pisces; Great for dreamers and spiritual believers, bad aspect if you think you can get something for nothing and get scammed. Beware of lies, deceit, or wishful thinking that has no real means of realisation. Good aspect for futurism and artistic progress. Good for creative artists, poets, and musicians but stay practical. Dream true, manifest your ideal higher self. Don’t believe all you hear and and half of what you see. Good for artistically attempting to please or satisfy others wishes or dreams. Very idealistic aspect, religious, spiritual, outer space or deep sea adventures and revelations. Can be an emotional aspect where one goes astray of reality. Breaking away from the routine might be just the key if one doesn’t go dumb or numb with foolish actions. Avoid ‘What was I thinking? aftermath’.
March 27th Moon conjuncts Venus in Aquarius: an ideal day (and lasts for awhile) to share your dreams, love, and future inclinations to greatness. Poetics and flowers work well here, as do kisses and hugs.
March 29th the love fest continues or is it sharp turns and sour grapes? Venus in Aquarius trine Mars in Libra, Venus square SATurn in Scorpio; what makes one person happy may make another sad. Love seems has no limits until imposed on you by another. Set healthy boundaries and enjoy. Magic is afoot if you live in such a way that redeems yesterday by holding on to tomorrow.
March 30th (into new month) More changes and rearranging? Change within to avoid outer change. New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus (influence until April 3rd). Scary drums of war still rattling, or is it this crazy weather still putting many on the rocks and stirred up? Shaky quaking earth or storm? Volcanic or disruptive emotions? Scary start to spring? Extremes in weather? Or are new impulses for peace making, compassion to those less fortunate, bravery in face of difficult challenges. Mourning prominent deaths, a sense of rebirth, social renewal, and need to learn new ways of being true to ourselves, others. Many rediscovering or reviewing, renewing or questioning nature of work, home, relationship, personal identity; all Cardinal house and sign interests connected to Grand Cross in April. See Youtube Grand Cross talk.
Lunar Eclipse April 15th with Mercury square Pluto. Research, deep thinking, warning signs of impending necessities. Indications of fate and destiny abound.
April 10th to 23rd grand changes and world awakening as the Grand Cross of April triggers. The Templars’ Revenge? Make love not war? Mother Nature telling us something is wrong and needing fixing? The new age of a politics of wisdom and compassion? Breakthroughs in technology and energy; a vision of freedom form fossilised fuels? A need for ecology policing? A new emerging love of the earth. A new emergence of the Prosephine Mysteries and goddess mother religiousness movements. A new rise of the feminine, Sophia, wisdoms in politics and economics.
April 29th Solar Eclipse New Moon with Mercury trine Pluto. Mental realisations, conclusions, and future things to do. Making an agenda and setting realistic goals. A need to change one’s mind, renew one’s highest vows, and start anew.

"I believe in the creative power of certain individuals who, because of this power or gift, must be allowed by society to be alone, work alone, and left alone to perfect their work. Our education must be more lenient to these individuals and more understanding on that individual who does not conform to the average."
-Norma Lorre Goodrich, ‘Her Statement’
“Friendship is an inner Sun makes light
the World. Love is a candle in the heart
illuminating, unfurling, the Soul flame Spirit;
the same name, every star, burning in
every cell every living thing, thought, feeling
raising angelic voices bringing a grail
catching stars singing our names.”
