IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL THE SIGNS
> This is an excerpt from your monthly stars – read the full post here!
March has quite straightforward astrology – there are no major planetary clashes. However it has one rather outstanding feature and that is a double Full Moon, also known as a Blue Moon!
The first Full Moon comes on March 2 in the sign of Virgo. The second one comes on March 31 in the sign of Libra.
There is no actual astrological significance to having two Full Moons in one calendar month. However there is a symbolic significance; the Full Moon is the time to release negativity from our lives, so March gives us double the usual chances to detox emotionally.
Remember the Moon is the Queen of Emotions, and as she swells, our emotions do too. Women in particular have worked with the Full Moon for literally thousands of years. The practise was lost for a while (when being seen to work with the Moon could get you burned at the stake!) but it’s coming back.

FIRST A NOTE ABOUT MERCURY RETROGRADE
As you might know, the planet of communications, Mercury, goes retrograde three to four times a year. What this actually means is that from our point of view here on Earth, Mercury appears to be going backwards. It’s an optical illusion with a symbolic meaning. When Mercury reverses it’s time to re-do, rethink, revisit and revise.
WHAT ABOUT ROMANCE AND RICHES?
With the skies a little less stressful than they have been lately, we have a chance to enjoy some of the finer things in life, such as romance and the flow of abundance in our lives. So click here for info about the moves of the romance and riches planet Venus this month…
Venus will spend most of March in Aries – click here is what that means for YOU.
A NOTE ABOUT JUPITER…
Now let’s take a moment to think about many astrologers’ favourite planet – Jupiter. Jupiter is basically your good luck planet. Where Jupiter goes, good times, maybe some excess, expansion and adventure usually follows. One of the key phrases for Jupiter is “lots of” because Jupiter is the planet of “lots of”. Right now, Jupiter is in the sign of Scorpio so we are getting “lots of” Scorpionic things – with money, sex and power being the main themes. These includes issues about previously taboo topics (Scorpio loves a taboo) such as medical marijuana, questions around sexuality (the last of the same sex marriage debates), on-going issues around euthanasia could well come to a head during this cycle (Scorpio rules death), and … the entire #metoo and #timesup movements. In fact, exactly when Jupiter entered Scorpio, Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual assault and harassment by multiple actresses. Jupiter is also what you could call “the publicity planet” so as he sails through the signs, the subjects encapsulated by those signs get to be front and centre.
And this month? Jupiter goes retrograde. What is that going to mean for everyone? Click here for that info…
MARS IS ON THE MOVE…
Meanwhile, the planet Mars is on the move. Mars takes around two years to go around the chart. This month, Mars moves back into Capricorn towards the middle of the month. So wherever you have Capricorn in your chart, you now have the planet of action and drive, Mars (see here for more information about that).
Mars goes well in Capricorn because Mars is the energy planet and Capricorn is the stamina sign. Put them together and you get sustained energy in whichever part of your life and horoscope chart Mars is triggering.
Have a marvellous Mars!
