We need to talk about March....
This month is going to be a game-changer, and in a good way.
It's a big transition month with major planetary sign changes, but before that, the first two weeks of March kick off with big healing magic as Venus in Aries first conjuncts Jupiter, then Chiron, and then on the 12th, Jupiter conjuncts Chiron beginning a new cycle of healing, growth, and optimism that happens only once every fifty years.
In the big picture, 2023 is a transition year, and we are in this larger collective transition from now until May 2026, when all of the outer planets (Pluto, Neptune, Uranus) finish changing signs.
But more than that, 2023 ends a string of years dominated by Saturn strong in its own signs of Capricorn and Aquarius AND challenging other planets from those strong positions - most notably Uranus, the change-bringer, in a series of 4 squares from February 2021 through October 2022.
Saturn is tradition and the way it's always been done, and in challenging aspect, brings rules and authority that restricts and limits. Uranus is the future, innovation, freedom, and breaking through.
So, if you feel like you've been struggling for a couple of years to really bust into "the new" but have been frustratingly held back by unseen forces out of your control, and now you are on the precipice of the unknown, you felt right!
3/7 Saturn Enters Pisces: Our first big shift lands on March 7th with the Virgo full moon when Saturn leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces for the next 2 1/2 years. This softens Saturn's influence. Not only is it not as powerful in Pisces, it won't be making those pesky challenging aspects like it has been for years now, and it is actually going to be in a much better position to be a helpful and supportive influence - helping us ground our inspiration and ideas in to reality.
3/23 & 3/25: Pluto Enters Aquarius; Mars Enters Cancer: By the end of March, we have Pluto in Aquarius and Mars into Cancer just a couple of days apart, and this completes our major shifts.
Mars into Cancer is a big deal because Mars agitates and activates whatever sign/area of life it is transiting, and while typically it only spends about 2 months in each sign and retrogrades only every 2 years, from late October til mid-January it was retrograde in Gemini putting extra focus there, which made it's total transit of that sign four times longer than normal, beginning in late August and not ending til late March.
But the bigger deal is Pluto's shift from Capricorn to Aquarius - it landed in Capricorn in 2008, and will spend this year going back and forth over the cusp, finally landing in Aquarius for good next January. It will remain there until 2044.
While this is a large part of what I mean by "the beginning of a new era," it's not the only thing. Saturn's sign change is part of it, and by May 2026 Uranus and Neptune will have changed signs too. And that's a big deal.
But there's more to it than that, and it's happening in the first half of March.
It isn't just those big outer planet sign changes or the end of a long string of Saturn-dominated astrology heralding a new era.
On March 12th, Jupiter in Aries conjuncts Chiron, "the wounded healer." Jupiter is one of the two "benefics," (blessing/gift bringers) along with Venus. In the first half of March, they both just happen to be hooking up with Chiron, as well as each other, as they transit Aries. While Venus moves through the zodiac in about eighteen months, it takes Jupiter about twelve years, spending about a year in each sign. So this is a big deal. Jupiter won't meet up with Chiron in Aries again for another fifty or so years.
Jupiter represents growth, expansion, luck, abundance, and beliefs. Chiron represents our core wounds to self. In Aries, Chiron is about our wounds specifically around our right to exist and stand up and be counted in the world. These wounds are the ones that keep us doubting ourselves, not speaking up, not self-asserting, and playing small. They keep us from truly sharing ourselves and our gifts with the world, and Chiron says it's precisely these wounds that are our gifts that need to be shared. So it's time to transcend all that shame around who we are so we can shine those lights bright!
Jupiter is the planet of belief, faith, hope, and optimism. As we begin this new phase on March 12th, it's time to shift any old limiting beliefs and start nurturing new ones that are more supportive and aligned with the gifts Jupiter wants to bring. (Keep in mind Jupiter lands in Taurus mid-May for an entire year, and this is historically known to be a prosperous and fortunate period across the board. Get your sense of self-value and worth aligned now!)
But even before the big Jupiter-Chiron conjunction mid-Month, Venus will be working her magic in Aries.
We kick off March with Venus conjunct Jupiter in Aries on the 1st, and that leads us right into her meet up with Chiron on the 3rd. (From the 3rd, the Jupiter-Chiron conjunction will be palpable and building to exact on the 12th, but it's really in play from February 23rd until March 29th - the entire month.)
We associate Venus with love, money, and beauty, but Venus rules the principles of the divine feminine ~ receptivity and attraction. In fact, Venus rules the law of attraction ~ like attracts like. Venus as ruler of Taurus rules resources and money, and as ruler of Libra rules relationships, harmony, balance, peace, and cooperation.
At the heart of the matter, Venus rules self-worth: how we value ourselves as our number one resource and put ourselves out in the world - how we align with and attract love and money, relationships and resources. The key principle here is: as within, so without.
3/1 Venus conjunct Jupiter in Aries: As Venus first meets up with Jupiter in Aries, the sign of self and self-assertion, we get the opportunity to take advantage of a confidence and self-worth boost that brings all sorts of good things our way. Love, money, joy, abundance - it's yours for the taking - maybe it even just seems to flow to you. Maybe you just feel "up" and in a good mood. What's really happening here is your inner love and abundance is getting a boost, unblocked and allowed to shine forth, and the world around you naturally is responding to that. Be sure to take this one out for a walk, because getting out and socializing is how to make the most of this. Opportunities can't find you on your couch.
3/3 Venus conjunct Chiron in Aries: As Venus passes over Chiron, paving the way for Jupiter mid-month, we get a chance for any necessary heart-healing before the bigger Jupiter-Chiron conjunction on the 12th. Remember what Venus is about - love and money, but by way of our value of ourselves and unshakable knowing of our inherent worth. It's time to heal any past wounds that have damaged our sense of worth, value, and desirability/lovability. It's time to let down our guard and soften, to be vulnerable, and to crack open the armor over our hearts to let the light, and love in. Open to allow love in, to love and be loved - love is what will allow us to transcend the fear - the fear of pain. Walls around our hearts may feel necessary for safety and protection at first, but in the end, we end up only starving ourselves of what we most want and need.
It doesn't end there - the next two new moons are both in Aries, and they will help us really solidify this new beginning!
The first one will be March 21st (equinox) at zero degrees Aries, and the second one will be April 20th at 29 degrees Aries - the anaretic or karmic degree - and it will be our first eclipse of 2023.
Here's a secret: the dark moon, or two days or so preceding every new moon is the secret to superpowering your new moon new beginning, because the dark moon is the time for releasing everything that no longer serves that you don't want to carry through the new moon portal. And as you might have noticed, these next two new moons in Aries are potent new beginning portals, so showing up for the dark moon is going to extra powerful alchemy in your life.
