Recap of the February SOLAR Eclipse

Review of February LUNAR Eclipse

March is a great time to focus on long-term goals and to make strides on projects that have been underway for some time. Saturn will trine Mars on March 5th and Mars will trine North Node on March 14th bringing positive advances to long-term endeavours and related to your unique personal strengths!  While there is some ‘stop and go’ energy during other times in the month, you can start to sense that your ongoing efforts are paying off. Have patience stay committed to your what you want to achieve! 

The Sun and Mercury will be meeting up on March 6th in Pisces bringing more clarity and also an emotional flavour to your communication. This can be a time when you are truly able to ‘say what you mean’, or when your true emotions are made known whether you want them to be or not. 

The full moon on March 12th in Virgo brings personal projects to completion and can bring resolution to health issues if they are present. Be careful about ‘heightened emotions’, typically experienced during the full moon and the potential for brewing conflicts to come to a head. The Virgo full moon can bring up frustration or self judgement if you feel like you have not made the progress that you ‘should’ have made by this point.  For Aquarius, this can bring travel or international engagements, the achievement of a long-standing goal, or it can also bring a breakthrough or ‘new wisdom’ related to worldly topics or to your personal philosophy.

As Jupiter stationed retrograde last month, there is a general energy of ‘inward expansion’ and reflections of ones personal values and philosophies over the next several months.  

Specifically for Aquarius, this can be a time for reflecting on your personal values and on your sources of financial security. This can be a good time for implementing a new long term savings plan, or putting a plan in place to resolve current debt. This is a good time to make positive changes in your life that align with your personal values. For those born in the last 10 days of the sign (or who have 20-29 degrees of Aquarius rising) there is an increased focus on personal health and on improving your own sense of confidence. Consider your health habits and what you can do to take good care of yourself or to make improvements to your routines.  

Venus in Retrograde this month brings challenges to your experience of love, relationships, finances as well as self image. Troubles in your relationships may seem more apparent between now and mid-April.  ‘Past loves’ can come back into the picture. This is a very good time for forgiveness and for moving on from relationships that no longer serve a positive purpose in your life. Focus on compassion and on on putting yourself first during this time and avoid being pulled into ‘drama’. Feelings can be expressed honestly around March 25th, or you may suddenly see your relationships more clearly when the Sun will come into conjunction with Venus in this retrograde cycle. You can become more clear about what you want and more open to expressing it. From a business perspective, this may be a time for unwinding from financial engagements that are ‘meant to end’ or which are no longer in line with your goals.  

There is a theme overall in 2017 being brought by an opposition between Uranus and Jupiter that will occur 3 times this year and occurs for the second time on March 4th. For Aquarius, this can represent new knowledge or new learning that can be beneficial to your wellbeing. This can be a time to expand your horizons or to seek new sources of information, to take a new course, or for travel. In general this is a time when you can have greater clarity in seeing ‘the big picture’. For the last 10 days of the sign (or 20-29 degrees of Aquarius rising), this opposition relates to bringing a greater sense of financial security in your life, possibly of building more personal wealth or becoming more financially stable in a marriage relationship. It could also represent new money or an inheritance.  

Uranus in the sign of Aries also represents personal changes so this can be a great time to resurrect any New Year’s resolutions that have fallen out of focus, especially those related to your diet, healthcare or exercise habits and in general how you manage stress in your life.  

March 20th brings the first day of Spring and the Sun will be moving into fiery Aries. Mars in Taurus brings a calm balance to this fiery energy and a more grounded, practical focus. The New Moon on March 27th also occurs in Aries! This is a great time to make New Moon wishes for new beginnings, personal changes, personal goals and building confidence.  

Best of Luck!
