March, is here. Summer is preparing its entry. Mainit na. Mainit nadin ulo ng mga tao regarding the election campaign season, and the devastating situation unfolding in Europe. Yes, March is clear of eclipses and retrogrades. The sky, however, is ripe with strong planetary conjunctions that add plenty of color and texture to our experience, one of which is a rare 3-planet conjunction happening this month, when the star-crossed lovers, VENUS and MARS, meet with PLUTO in Capricorn. Emotions may easily be triggered for the first half of the month, and feelings may be unbridled, unmoored. Expect hidden sentiments to come out, and some of these may be surprising, even to you!
Other notable conjunctions happening this month:
Mercury conjunct Saturn (roughly once a year), allowing us to be disciplined, yes, but quite stern and rigid, in the way that we think and speak.
Sun conjunct Jupiter (roughly once a year), giving us a much needed boost of optimism and luck, which is good, as long as we don’t allow an inflated sense of irrational confidence to take over.
and lastly, the cold and calculating conjunction of Venus conjunct Saturn (roughly once every 1.5 years), where we may feel separated from our joy center at least while the transit is activated.
lastly, March brings in the Vernal Equinox, welcoming spring in the northern hemisphere. The Sun is back in charge, after being away for the winter. Aries season begins, also marking the beginning of a new astrological year. Happy New Year to us all!
For really specific details on how this month’s Cosmic Weather may affect you, you will need your exact birth time, birth place, and a competent astrologer who can compute and interpret your charts. However, even without these, knowing the general energies at play can greatly assist in planning ahead. You know the drill!
