MARCH MOON REPORT from Yasmin Boland

After the rollercoaster ride we have had in 2018 (thanks to two eclipses), March should feel a bit like a gentle exhale in many ways. That said, there are still some standout moments in the skies this month, not least of which is a Blue Moon! A Blue Moon is defined as the second of two Full Moons in a month, which is what we get this month. The first is on March 2 in the sign of Virgo, the second is on March 31 in the sign of Libra. Wedged between these is the New Moon in Pisces on March 17.

HOW TO USE THE ENERGIES THIS MONTH

Truth is, a Blue Moon itself has little to no astrological significance per se. However what it does mean is that within the space of one month we get two Full Moons, and Full Moons are always perfect times for getting rid of negative energy of any kind. A few ideas for things to do at the double Full Moons this month:

1. Howl at the Moon, obviously!
2. Do a forgiveness ceremony on both Full Moon nights – all the emotions rise to the surface at Full Moon time, all the better for us to access them. Forgiveness is the best way to clear emotions and karma. Process and release.
3. Put any crystals you own outside on the nights of the Full Moon to give them a beautiful recharge.

YOU ALSO NEED TO KNOW THAT…

Mercury, the planet of communications, goes into another retrograde cycle this month. This begins on March 23 and will last into April. Ideally, making any travel arrangements before that date (as far before as you can!) Mercury retrograde isn’t bad luck at all, however it can be a time when plans go haywire. It’s also the perfect time to make sure your photos and other files are backed up.
