March is an astrologically power packed month. We haven’t experienced anything like this in our lifetime! Major planetary shifts will colour all of our lives for the decades to come, as we have the opportunity to open our hearts and move into our personal power. The main player here is Pluto, planet of endings and beginnings, which will arrive in the sign of Aquarius on March 23rd. The last time Pluto passed through this sign was between 1778 and 1798 – a revolutionary and transformative period of time that changed the way the world viewed power, money, technology and society as a whole. Aquarius is a humanitarian sign, championing individuality, equality and freedom of expression; so hopefully whatever is ahead will be for the better. This month also sees the arrival of the planet Saturn into the water sign of Pisces. Saturn, our wise teacher, last travelled through this sign from 1993 to1996, marking many big changes on a global scale. Venus and Jupiter are both in fiery Aries, suggesting a sense of excitement and optimism. Action planet Mars arrives in Cancer on the 25th – a big energy shift after a 5 month stay in Gemini. This year’s Spring Equinox falls in the evening of the 20th, closely followed by the powerful Aries new moon the day after. The full moon is in Virgo on the 7th.
ARIES MARCH 21 – APRIL 20
The combination of the radiant Sun and mystical Neptune, in the most intuitive sector of your chart, presents exciting opportunities for you and your career. Venus and Jupiter, both strong in your sign, offer amazing and creative new insights as your personal charisma reaches new heights. Watch out for the new moon in your sign on the 21st – it marks an important turning point!
TAURUS APRIL 21 – MAY 21
March is all about finding a much gentler way of life, particularly if things have been rather hectic during the last year.

GEMINI MAY 22 – JUNE 21

The new moon on the 21st brings an energy boost.
CANCER JUNE 22 – JULY 22
Finances and resources are in the spotlight this month as Mercury and Saturn ask you to begin a thorough reassessment.
