This is the planetary overview for March 2016. There are three major astral events, this month: the only total solar eclipse in 2016 (on March, 9th, visible in East Asia, Australia and Pacific), the Spring or the Vernal Equinox (on March, 20th) and the first Moon Eclipse in 2016 (on March, 23rd). Starting March, 24th, Saturn turns retrograde in Sagittarius, requiring a better understanding of life.
March 5th: Mercury enters Pisces – the mind is directed by emotions, dreams, visions and intuition. The logic is not very important, when Mercury transits Pisces. We become good and empathetic listeners.
March 6th: Mars enters Sagittarius – managing multiple projects at once become something quite usual, during this transit. This is a good time for study, especially on academic level.
March 9th: New Moon in Pisces (the only total solar eclipse in 2016 – visible in East Asia, Australia and Pacific) (Sun conjunct Moon in Pisces) – it is time for spirituality, prayers and meditation. Some of us will need some time alone with their own thoughts.
March, 12th: Venus enters Pisces – „You may say I’m a dreamer, But I’m not the only one“ – John Lennon’s words express perfectly how we feel, during this transit. We value the power of dreams and imagination.
March, 16th: Jupiter in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn – this is one of the most profitable planetary aspects of 2016. We create a healthy relation with our own body. At work, good employees are rewarded and their motivation is increased.
March, 20th: Sun enters Aries – it is the Spring or the Vernal Equinox, when night and day have approximately equal length all over the planet. It is time for rebirth and new beginnings.
March, 22nd: Mercury enters Aries – we make quick decisions (sometime, too quick). „Shoot first, ask questions later“ is the predominant attitude during this transit.
March 23rd: Full Moon in Libra (first Moon Eclipse in 2016) (Sun in Aries opposite Moon in Libra) – opposites attract, today, and without contraries is no progression. We put much energy into our relationships.
March, 23rd: Jupiter in Virgo square Saturn in Sagittarius– there is a mismatch between our long-term goals and our daily habits. We have to study more effectively and to work harder.
March, 24th: Saturn retrogrades in Sagittarius – we may discover that we don’t have the necessary knowledge for achieving our goals. Acquiring knowledge becomes our main task, for the next four months and a half (until August, 12th).
