March Starts off on a Lighter Note with Some Beneficial Assists from Jupiter, Venus and Chiron


 


The month of March is beginning with a much lighter vibration than February, which is a welcome change from the intensity of the past month.  On March 1, the Sun in Pisces forms a supportive sextile to Jupiter in 11 degrees of Taurus. This aspect is bound to generate feelings of optimism and attract good luck into our lives.  We feel happier and it will be easier to expand areas of our life (Jupiter loves to expand whatever it touches). The growth can be material or spiritual, or both if we are so inclined.  Our minds should be clearer and we can find ourselves attracting recognition and reaching our goals without all of the obstacles that have been hovering around us in February.  Make the most of this day and enjoy it.

Venus in Aquarius will also be sextiling Chiron in 17 degrees of Aries on March 1.  This aspect will present us with opportunities to work through wounds to our self-worth.  We can transform painful experiences through creative arts.  And we just might wind up having people drawn to us that help us heal.

On March 3, Venus in Aquarius gets a little edgier when it squares Uranus in 19 degrees of Taurus.  This can test the stability of love relationships with unexpected events or urges.  We might be craving more freedom and space, but don't resist the need for change.  As the old saying goes, it is futile to resist.  This aspect is not as bad as it sounds because Venus and Uranus are in mutual reception: Venus is in the Uranus-ruled sign of Aquarius and Uranus is in the Venus-ruled sign of Taurus.  So just be open to the change that is in the air...

Mercury in Pisces is sextiling Uranus in 19 degrees of Taurus on March 4 and this can bring exciting, positive news and stimulating conversations.  Our daily routines could change for the better and new insights are possible.  

We have more positive energy contributing to the healing theme on March 6 when Mars in Aquarius is sextiling Chiron in 17 degrees of Aries.  This aspect is brimming with potential to heal past wounds and overcome obstacles as we have the courage to confront with detachment.  Aquarius is noted for its ability to detach.  It's also possible for society to address some wounds on this day.  I love the fact that we are having so many sextiles this week because they present us with opportunities after the heaviness the recent conjunctions and squares have been dealing out to us.  The pace will pick up the following week with the New Moon and the approach of the first Lunar Eclipse in Libra on March 25, but more on that in later posts.  I encourage everyone to take advantage of this week's more benign aspects.  We should be feeling more social, gregarious, and ready for some pleasure in our lives.  The months of January and February have been quite intense, and this week is a welcome breather.

I am pleased to announce that I have another article published on Powerfortunes.com about Profection Years in Astrology. You can read it on:https://www.powerfortunes.com/topics-opinions/profectionyears.php.  It turns out that there are definite themes present in each year of our life and they tend to repeat.  I like to think of them like Jupiter Returns, because they occur every twelve years.

The coronavirus outbreak caused me to increase the number of distant Reiki sessions I do because people were concerned about the spread of the infection. I have decided to suspend my in-person Reiki sessions until further notice, so all of my Reiki sessions will be distant Reiki sessions for the foreseeable future. But a distant Reiki session is the perfect opportunity to safely build up your immune system and if you have contracted coronavirus, you can be treated safely from the comfort of your home. My procedure is to have a conversation with a client about what they hope to achieve from a session, we set up a time for the session to take place when they will be in a state to receive healing energy and I follow up with a telephone conversation to discuss their experience and my perception of their blockages. I do miss seeing my clients, so I am now offering Zoom consultations/intakes before the session so that we can see each other. I have also incorporated a new technique with my distance Reiki treatments since I don’t always have a photo of my client.  I use a teddy bear so that I can scan and focus the healing energy where it is needed. If this appeals to you, please feel free to contact me by email at lindasim54@gmail.com or call me at 617-304-2205.

Mercury Enters Pisces and a Full Moon in Virgo


 

Mercury is joining the Pisces party on February 23 and will remain in Pisces until March 9.  Our thought processes are about to get more intuitive and less verbal as we turn inwards.  Thinking will be colored by emotions and we could find ourselves being more reactive.  Mercury in Pisces is a time when we are quieter, find it easier to listen and meditate.  Music can take on a greater role in our lives too.  Watch for synchronistic events to occur too.  The downside of Mercury in Pisces is that we can have a tendency to overlook the details.  It marks a major shift in communication from Mercury in Aquarius, which was very outspoken.  Yes, the energy is definitely shifting and we saw a significant change on February 18, when the Sun entered Pisces.  On that day I posted:

On the following day, we have a Full Moon in 5 degrees of Virgo.  The Full Moon will shine a light on health issues with the Sun in Pisces and the Moon in Virgo. Issues pertaining to our digestive and immune systems could be highlighted.  The Moon in Virgo is also opposing Saturn in 9 degrees of Pisces, which could create feelings of depression and loneliness.  It can be hard to share emotions on this day, just warning you.  And the opposition to Saturn can manifest as more restrictions and rules to stymie our freedom.  The Moon is also inconjunct Mars in 8 degrees of Aquarius, which will add to the irritability factor that tends to come out on Full Moons.  Try to get in some exercise to channel that frustration. And the Moon will also be inconjunct Venus in 9 degrees of Aquarius, which can increase our desire for love and fuel more tension.  The bottom line with these inconjunct aspects is to make some adjustments.  It's not always easy but definitely worth the effort.  Venus in Aquarius is squaring Jupiter in Taurus, which isn't all bad.  Venus and Jupiter tend to get along well, even with a square aspect.  It is a fun-loving, social aspect and its only drawback is a tendency towards extravagance.   But the Moon in Virgo is also trining Jupiter in 11 degrees of Taurus, which can generate new ideas and a sense of optimism in planning for the future.  

Mars in Aquarius will be squaring Jupiter in 10 degrees of Taurus on February 26 and this can play out as lots more energy at our disposal to take the initiative and engage in some risk-taking.  Bring on those new projects!  We will be primed to fight for our belief systems and have more courage.  Just be mindful of a tendency to be tactless and impulsive.

Mercury and the Sun are both conjunct Saturn in 9 degrees of Pisces on February 28.  Mercury conjunct Saturn will help us with critical thinking, but it can feel somewhat heavy and trigger clashes with authority figures.  Try not to dwell on any negativity.  The Sun's meet-up with Saturn can bring on extra responsibilities and hard work.  Patience and discipline are going to be required.  This isn't exactly what we wanted to hear, but this is the way it is.

The month of February ends on a more positive note on the 29th when Mercury in Pisces is forming a supportive sextile to Jupiter in 11 degrees of Taurus. This is extremely favorable for communication and planning for the future.  It also boosts our decision-making skills.  It has a very social vibe too, so if you are in the mood to make new friends, get yourself out there.  Sometimes that extra day in the month is just what we need!

I am pleased to announce that I have another article published on Powerfortunes.com about Profection Years in Astrology. You can read it on:https://www.powerfortunes.com/topics-opinions/profectionyears.php.  It turns out that there are definite themes present in each year of our life and they tend to repeat.  I like to think of them like Jupiter Returns, because they occur every twelve years.

Venus Enters Aquarius and the Sun Sails into Pisces


 

The times they are a changing and there is ample evidence of that this week when Venus joins the Aquarius party on February 16.  We already have the Sun, Mars, Mercury and Pluto there, so now we can expect even more change and a need for freedom in our lives.  Venus in Aquarius has a more unconventional expression of love and craves experimentation.  Venus will remain in Aquarius until March 11 and we can expect to be desiring more space in our relationships as well as a need for fairness.  The lines between friendship and love can also become a bit blurred when Venus is in Aquarius.  Venus in Aquarius is more cerebral and detached; it is not exactly known for being warm and fuzzy but that can be a good thing if we need to talk things out rationally in relationships.  When Venus is transiting the sign of Aquarius we  might also find that our friendships become more important to us.  Venus will be conjunct Pluto in Aquarius on February 17 and this can add more layers of intensity and passion to relationships.  It can also motivate us to be more honest and get to the root of any issues that have been bothering us.  Spoiler alert, it can also bring up issues of control, power, jealousy and obsession on this day.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention that on February 16 we have another blast of Aquarius energy when Mercury in Aquarius squares Uranus in 19 degrees of Taurus.  Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, so this is indeed a heavy hit as it doubly emphasizes the Aquarian and Uranian vibes. Mercury squaring Uranus can produce nervous energy and anxiety.  It also has a very unpredictable quality and there is a strong likelihood that things might not go as planned.  There is also a sense of brilliant thinking present as new information could emerge as well as different approaches to situations. I have a natal Mercury-Uranus square and I can tell you first-hand that it indicates an original thinker that doesn't follow the pack.  It could be an exciting day in terms of the news. Changes can occur in our routines and there is the potential for misunderstandings in communication.  Since Mercury also rules transportation, please be careful driving on this day too.

On February 18, the Sun enters the mutable water sign of Pisces.  So one planet is leaving the Aquarius party.  I must confess that I tend to love it when the Sun is in Pisces, probably because I am a Scorpio and at least the Sun is literally in my element now. It is in a fun part of my chart-my 5th house.  When the Sun is in Pisces, our focus shifts towards more compassion and empathy for others as altruism rules. We are inclined to follow our dreams and be more creative.  Just be mindful that there is a shadow side of the Sun in Pisces: don't get caught up in self-pity and martyrdom or victimization.  Addiction could rear its ugly head too and there might be a tendency towards escapism when the Sun is in Pisces. Channel that need for escapism constructively by going to the theatre, a museum or a movie.  You get the idea; you don't have to go down the rabbit hole.

On February 22, Venus in Aquarius meets up with Mars in 6 degrees of Aquarius.  This can be a very romantic time as passion and intimacy are amped up a notch.  If your Valentine's Day was a bit lackluster, this could be your chance to make up for it.  It represents an opportunity to meet new friends as well and to be creative.  So please make the most of this day and get out there if possible.

A Super-Charged New Moon in Aquarius and Mars Enters Aquarius for a Rendezvous with Pluto on Valentine's Day


 

We have our very first New Moon with Pluto in Aquarius.  On February 9, we have a New Moon in 20 degrees of Aquarius that is also squaring the ruling planet of Aquarius, Uranus in 19 degrees of Taurus.  This will be quite the intense New Moon and some might feel like it is a Full Moon.  Obviously it has a very Uranian theme as it is a time to let go of what is no longer serving our best interests and break free of old patterns.  There is a great deal of nervous energy present and exciting news could very well be on the horizon.  Aquarius is a very future oriented sign.  The Moon squaring Uranus makes it hard to predict how it will play out, as anything can happen.  I can tell you that most of us will probably feel quite uncomfortable with the changes that are coming as we get in touch with our soul's desire, feel our truth and aim to get authentic.  On February 8, we had the Sun in Aquarius squaring Uranus in Taurus setting the stage for this New Moon and on that day I posted:
The bottom line is that this New Moon will be a wild ride as we plunge forward into the future and it will undoubtedly deliver some surprises that we didn't see coming. So hang in there...

On the following day, Mercury in Aquarius is squaring Jupiter in 8 degrees of Taurus.  This is also the Lunar New Year, the Year of the Wood Dragon. We haven't had a Dragon year since 2012, and the last Wood Dragon year was 1964, which was a pivotal year for social change. Saturn was in Aquarius at the beginning of 1964, dipped into Pisces from late March through September and then went back into Pisces (like it is now) in December 1964.  Food for thought, n'est pas?  Mercury squaring Jupiter can be quite optimistic but while we definitely have the big picture in sight, we aren't so focused on the details.  And since Jupiter loves to amplify whatever it touches, we can be prone to exaggerating and overreacting.  Just a heads up that some folks could be a bit cocky.

Mars joins the Aquarius party (Sun, Mercury and Pluto) on February 13 and stays there until March 22, 2024.  Mars in Aquarius is the social warrior and is driven by humanitarian desires.  It is very independent energy with a touch of recklessness and eccentricity.  It is definitely a rebel vibe.  It can be erratic and has a short fuse.  I say this from the voice of experience because I have a natal Mars in Aquarius in my 4th house. When Mars is in Aquarius, we will opt for unconventional methods and approach problems from an intellectual and detached perspective.

Mars is conjunct Pluto in 0 degrees of Aquarius on February 14, aka Valentine's Day.  This is a volatile mix with an abundance of domineering and aggressive energy.  It will increase our ambition, sex drive and lust for power.  So it can be a day of strong reactions, to say the least.  If you happen to have any planets or points (like Ascendant or Midheaven) in the early degrees (0-5) of the fixed signs of Aquarius, Taurus, Leo or Scorpio, you will feel the brunt of this aspect.  I happen to have my Mercury in 0 degrees of Scorpio in my 1st house, so there is no escape for me on this one.

Wishing all of my readers a Happy Lunar New Year of the Dragon and Valentine's Day.  Venus will enter Aquarius on February 16 and have its own meet-up with Pluto on the 17th.  More on that in next week's post.

I would also like to announce that I have had a second article published about Lunar Phases on PowerFortunes.com.  I posted about it on January 16:

I do miss seeing my clients, so I am now offering Zoom consultations/intakes before the session so that we can see each other. I have also incorporated a new technique with my distance Reiki treatments since I don’t always have a photo of my client.  I use a teddy bear so that I can scan and focus the healing energy where it is needed. If this appeals to you, please feel free to contact me by email at lindasim54@gmail.com or call me at 617-304-2205. The cost for distance Reiki sessions is based on a sliding scale of $30 -$50. For your convenience, I accept Venmo and Zelle for payment. Zelle payments can be sent using my telephone number

617-304-2205. I have also written an article about distance Reiki, which is available at:

I also wanted to note that in an ironic twist of fate, one of the latest variants of COVID is EG.5, with a nickname of Eris.  Sound familiar--the Goddess of Discord?  Apparently, COVID cases and hospitalizations are on the rise...


I urge everyone to engage in massive amounts of self-care and follow the protective measures of washing your hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, wearing a face mask when necessary and staying home if you are sick. And get a vaccine. The newest vaccine is available and I encourage you to get it to protect yourself. I repeat, you do not want to get this virus! I speak from personal experience and consider myself very fortunate to have survived Coronavirus twice. Stay safe and healthy, everyone!
