In March we become more aligned with our goals and act upon our highest good. Everything we have been working so hard for is starting to take shape, and while there is still a long road ahead of us, but we are making progress. This is a month of action, taking big steps, in welcoming new energy, cycles, and transforming our past lessons into higher understanding. In March we are breaking new ground and moving past old barriers that had kept us from reaching our most treasured goals.
The first week of March starts off with two major planetary shifts that refocuses our value-system. This is where we begin to think two steps ahead and taking into consideration if our current mindset and the way we act upon reaching for what we desire is in correlation with that bigger vision. We can thank both Mercury and Venus for this.
On the 4th, Mercury is still retrograding but moves Aquarius for the next two weeks. We have been daydreaming in Pisces still it had first begun its retrograde motion in mid-February, but now we are taking those dreams and considering making them into goals when it shifts into future-oriented Aquarius. We may still be a bit fogged because the planet of thought, memory, and communication is still doing its backward dance, but things are starting to become a little clearer, and that bigger picture comes into focus.
This is also a time where opinions are boasted, and we may feel internally threatened or even triggered if someone challenges our views. The need to be right, and the need to stand for something is strong, and if not used correctly, that energy can create an uproar of arguments via social media over political topics or world events.
On that same day, Venus also makes a shift and moves into value-oriented Taurus. Venus is home in Taurus, and so its qualities are favored in the sense of wanting comfort, luxury, and stability within our relationships. Before when Venus was in Aries, we were looking for something new and on a quest for our next grand adventure, now that it is home in Taurus, we will take what we have found and allow it to flourish. However, with Venus being in conjunction with Uranus, our value-system may also be in question – is what we were searching for, truly good for us? Or is there truly any value within this conquest and is it worth investing ourselves into.
We have a lot of activity on the 9th as well, as just a few days later we have a health-focused Virgo Full Moon that also affects our lifestyle or routines, and we also have Mercury turning direct, which is still in Aquarius. These two energies push us to focus on what doesn’t work in our lives – what is holding us back from really manifesting our goals and allowing our dreams to take form. We will look at our day-to-day routines, in realizing that our smallest actions ripple into the future, and with great detail, we can see how some behavioral pattern is creating blockages.
The Full Moon in Virgo is heavy with its message, as it places us under a microscope and picks and pokes at us, illuminating things we have kept hidden in the dark. Self-care and how we serve others may also be in question, as Mercury turning direct really gets the wheels spinning and puts our thoughts into motion. We may take what we have seen and make perfect sense as to why we have to shift our internal and environmental perspective to seeing the whole truth, and not just what we want to see.
About a week later, Mercury shifts back into Pisces, and with it bringing direct, adds an artistic flair to the recent realizations we have unsurfaced. Goals will be taken to a whole new level, with added points that were drawn outside the lines. This is also a great time for those on their spiritual journey to explore deeper depths of your higher selves, as well as for healers and empaths – psychic gifts will be heightened, and the ability to channel spirit will be much clearer.
Aries takes the stage and rules the Sun on the 19th. Aries season is known for breaking new ground, planting seeds, and taking charge on new goals, projects, and taking actions on any new ideas. This is a time of inspiration and moving forward, breaking past old barriers and boundaries. Aries brings a bundle of excitement and courage for chasing our dreams during the next 4 weeks. The same day is the Pagan New Year with the Spring Equinox, when nature has reawakened, and the sun begins to warm the earth and bless new seeds so they may grow.
Just a few days later on March 21st, the Lord of Karma moves from Capricorn, where it has been at home for the past two years and resides in Aquarius. If your Saturn is in Aquarius (born between 1990-1994), this is your Saturn return which happens every 27-29 years. Saturn will do a bit of a dance and bounce back into Capricorn in July temporarily, as December it will shift back into Aquarius where it will remain for the next 3 years.
When Saturn is in Aquarius, we question boundaries, rules, and break free from old structures that no longer work. Saturn does quite well in Aquarius, but it also serves as a gaining a new vision that promotes extreme change. We are driven to break free from old concepts we used to be attached to, and act upon new ideas and experiment with what may work better.
Uranus is also in Taurus, which is square with Saturn in Aquarius, and with this a lot of the boundaries we will be questioning, are within our financial and relationship matters. We will be reconstructing many old establishments, from our own inner world, to the outer world as well.
On March 24th we are graced with a fiery New Moon in Aries. This is where we plant those seeds and focus on our higher goals. We are inspired with strength, courage, and a sense of adventure in breaking past barriers that had once held us back. The cosmos is pushing us to act upon much of what we had integrated from the year prior and the recent months. This is the push we need and the boost of energy that blasts us towards the newness we have been yearning for. If you have signed up for the Work Your Alchemy Membership, this New Moon’s ritual will be focused on Connecting with Our Higher Goals.
About a week later, Mars joins ranks with Saturn and moves into Aquarius. This is where we speak our views and opinions loudly and stand tall against injustice. We want to stand out, and we want to shock the World with how unique we are. Mars in Aquarius favors new ideas and has the courage to act upon them. Accompanied with the prior New Moon in Aries, this makes the perfect cosmic cocktail to pursue big dreams.

Happy Solar Return, Aries! ☀️♈
March is going to be an action-packed month for you with a lot of deep contemplation concerning your future and those you are bringing into it. You may feel that you need something to change, that you have outgrown a certain environment or relationship and that you are longing for something more than what you have now. You might be feeling bored, or perhaps you a bit depressed with how things have been going and cannot fathom a future with everything as it is now. You crave excitement and action, and so like the Aries you are, you crash through whatever barrier has you sitting in place and move past it, regardless of the consequences you may have to deal with.
This month you are focused on breaking new ground, but you do need to be careful with what you are ramming those horns against, as you don’t want to make any sudden moves that crack a foundation you have been long-working on, as you cannot go back to the way things were before.
A lot of what occurs this month may be influenced by your social or love life. You have many around you that share your vision, but you need to make sure that your vision is focused on your highest good, and not instant gratification.

March is going to be quite the month for you, Taurus! There is a lot of movement, and there is a lot of magic. You feel that things are going right as you feel they should be and are ready to take the next step towards your higher goals. Backed with confidence and determination, you are unstoppable and are ready to spread those wings and take flight on new ventures.
It is important that you act upon those ideas that you have been spending so long brainstorming and turning into fool-proof plans. Nothing can stand in your way this month, other than yourself.
There is also a need to be a little cautious with how you are spending your time this month as well, as time wasted makes your goals much harder to reach and can even create future delays or blockages. So, don’t spend your time with things that do not add value to your life or your future vision, and keep a sort of tunnel vision onto the roadway that lies ahead.
Venus moves into Taurus on the 4th, which puts your love life, value system, and also your passions or creative work on display. This is when you may be considering what is worth your time, and what is time wasted.

March is going to be such a treat compared to the issues you had to face last month, Gemini. While Mercury is still retrograding for the first portion of the month, it moves from Pisces into Aquarius, which is within your element and with that you may receive many downloads providing new ideas that inspire you. This is a month of considering what the future has in store in terms of new opportunities and goals. You are focused and you are determined in getting your ground set so you can take off, raking in the success you have envisioned.
When Mercury goes direct, it will still be in Aquarius within its post-shadow period before changing back into Pisces, and this is where you really start to cook those ideas up and add a little special touch of magic. Near the end of the month when the Sun moves into Aries, the Aries New Moon, and Mars moving in Aquarius, is when that fire is going to light up underneath you and inspire you to start acting upon all you have been brainstorming.
The Aries New Moon may be the perfect time for you to preform a ritual to empower your new ideas and align you towards your higher goals.

You may be taking a leadership role this month, Cancer, but it may not be as you’d like it to be. You will have to stand firm and speak loudly so that you are heard and the respect you desire is given. While you know that your vision is true, and the tasks you delegate are needed to be followed through, others might not be on the same level as you, and so it could feel like you’re herding cats in a sense – everyone has their own way of doing things which may not coincide with the way you had imagined them being done.
Your best option to get what you desire from this situation is to lead by example. Do what you need to do, in the best way you can do it, and the ones you need to lead will follow suit. You would much rather go with the flow, and allow others the freedom to do what they feel is right, but in this case you may be in charge of something that requires others to pay attention and to do as they are told, otherwise you could risk dealing with chaos rather than the order you need.
The key to remember, that even if things do get a bit chaotic, that there is creativity which can be transmuted from it, and that is where you will find the order that you need.

March is a month that requires you to take command and be the leader you naturally are. However, the circumstances at play may have you feeling that things are working against you more than they are working in your favor. You may have to muster up some extra strength so to ensure that the direction things flow, is connected to your vision and not running against it.
This is a month where you need to strike while the iron is hot, despite the odds that are stacked against you. You might also be making things far worse than they actually are because of dealing with a certain struggle for a very long time – you either feel there is little you can do to fix things, or that there is nothing you can do at all, or, you may even feel that you don’t want to put up a fight any longer and allow things to crumble.
You know what you need to do, Leo, you can feel it in your heart, but your mind might be convincing you otherwise because of being shrouded in fear, doubt, or even having a faulty perspective that was derived from struggling for so long. Follow your heart, Leo, it knows the way.
This month is all about finding solutions that are effective for the long-term to old issues that have been bothering you for some time now – these may be related to your personal relationships or your property.

You will be put on display with the Virgo Full Moon this month, and with that is going to come a massive shift that caters to your heart, more than your practical mind. You may feel attacked, because you always flow with where your logic takes you, but this month you are required to reach outside the box and to flow towards a different tune. This may not be easy, and there might be a lot at stake with this changing tide.
You may also be forced to take a break from something that has your heart and head at odds with one another. You have been stuck, deeply thinking of what you should do, and just when you consider your answer, it is taken from you and leaves you back at square one.
All you can do is flow with the course of this new wave and make the best of it. Remain optimistic, and know that with following your heart, it might be outside of your comfort zone, but it will lead you towards something even better than you had thought possible.

It seems that you may be stuck within a karmic pattern this month, Libra, in which you will be paid, or have to pay back, karmic debts. This of course all comes in through as experiences, as the energy within the cycles of lessons learned is how the currency of karmic debts are paid. You live, you learn, and if you learn well, you evolve into experiences which coincide with your growth.
I do feel that you will be given a gift of sorts this month, but it does not come without a price, and the price you have to pay stems down to the boundaries you are willing to set as well as the truth you are willing to speak. This gift is to be used to help you within those situations – be it needed moral support, or a fire lit under your ass by your guides and the cosmos to aid in the ability to finally get those feathers ruffled up so you have no choice but to act.
You want balance, and you want things to be harmonic within your career and your personal relationships, as the issues which arise may be coming within these areas – you cannot remain silent and allow things to continue, because you will only be doing more harm on yourself for the sake of keeping the peace with those you need to battle out your differences with.

Even though the sun sets, it will rise again. Scorpio, your superpower is transformation and rebirth. You are a sign that is constantly changing and transforming into better versions of yourself, to master the art of self-evolution and empowerment. And so, it seems that this month you are going to experience a massive come-up with your rebirth from the month’s prior that have been difficult to endure.
You may feel that this month a lot of your desires are changing, as your value system has transformed to what truly serves your higher self, and what has been dead-weight. You are loyal to a fault, and have come to realize that your loyalty might have been placed into the wrong places in the past, and with setting boundaries, allowing those old relationships that no longer serve you to drift away, you are coming to see that you are more powerful, sure of yourself, and have a clearer vision for what you want in the future. This may stem from when Venus moves into Taurus, your polar opposite, which forces you to focus on what you need within your value-system that is all for self-perseveration and future stability.
You may have also changed certain things up within your career and are moving towards new experiences, or even a new trade completely that involves a lot of learning and practice. You are ready, and you are all in for it.

You have so much good going for you, Sagittarius, but it may be hard to see it because you are too focused on what has gone wrong, or that what you have simply isn’t good enough. When you focus only on what you lack, and neglect to count your blessings but focus more on your worries, is when you will become stuck within a state of mind that continues to attract situations that match the vibration you are projecting. You have to take another look around you, start counting those blessings and realize that you truly have all that you need, and then some.
The grass is not greener on the other side, it becomes greener where you water it. So while you might think that you need to leave a situation or relationship that you feel isn’t good enough for you, you might actually be chasing after rocks when you truly have a bright diamond already in your hands. So, don’t throw away something wonderful for something that will only satisfy your thirst temporarily.
This month is all about altering your perspective and realizing how truly blessed and luck you are. With this is going to come a breakthrough of even more blessings to provide valid proof that you are exactly where you need to be and need to continue to remain committed with where you stand.

You have been through the ringer recently, Capricorn, and have endured situations that were not only life-changing, but also involved many that you love. The past few months have been quite difficult for you, but all of that is coming to a close, as you have done the work, and you have done it well. You may need to stand up some more this month, in both defending yourself, but also your inner-peace and your truth.
It is time to act differently, to walk the walk that you have come to learn in your recent past. When you act differently, is when you will receive different results that allow for you to finally become the victor. This may be an old goal that you have working on for a very long time, and you are finally starting to see the success that is to come as you are so very close to the finish line.
If you do happen to face any adversity this month, it is important to act from the heart, and to speak your truth from there as well. Just as the photo that is typically depicted on this card, the only way to tame a lion is through standing in your peace and not matching the chaos thrown at you, but to overcome it, and to overpower it by remaining in your power, and not wasting your strength on acting from the ego, but from channeling your strength from the soul.

You are going to be hit with Mercury’s retrograde this month, as it shifts into your sign from Pisces. This isn’t so much of a bad thing though, Aquarius, as you are going to be given a second chance at something that can add true meaning in your life. You had let something go long ago because of conflicting elements, or timing being off, and it was hard to do so, and so when it comes back around this month, you will have a better understanding of how to make the most of it this time around.
There is also great inspiration available this month, related to your career or creative projects. You are going to take something to a completely new level and will enjoy every minute of it. In fact, work may not even feel like work, because you love what you do so much.
While Saturn does shift into Aquarius this month, it does not seem that its lessons are coming through as a bang, however when they do, you have the wisdom to endure them, and ace whatever tests it throws your way.

When things get difficult, you need to reach out, Pisces. You have the support you need, but you might fear that your request for help will fall on deaf ears, or when asking for something you need, will be met with rejection. This is all a perspective based on fear and your own insecurities, and so you need to overcome this by getting out of your own way and asking for what you need.
You have a strong support that wants nothing more than for you to succeed. You will be granted the resources needed, and you will be encouraged to continue to do the best you can for yourself and your most treasured goals.
While you might feel at some point this month that you have been put into a difficult situation, you will find hope, and you will be inspired to overcome the obstacles you face.
Mercury does a little bit of a dance between your sign and Aquarius this month, and so you get a second tour of having your Mercury Return, meaning that you are going to face situations this month that involve the way you express yourself and communicate your needs.
