The Vernal Equinox on March 20, 2011

March Astrology With the Vernal Equinox Sets the Tone for the Astrological Year to Come

By Shakti Carola Navran

As you will see we are having a very astrologically active month ahead of us. It helps to know what is going on in more detail as it offers you better choices for your life.

We are living in tumultuous times which is reflected everywhere in the world especially in hot spots like the Middle East. Last month I wrote that with 6 planets in Aquarius, the water bearer is setting out to nourish and water the seeds of change. "This can happen through sudden changes, interruptions of continuity and rebellion or riots as we are seeing in Egypt right now. I would not be surprised to see more instability and destruction happening in explosive expressions all over the world this month."

Even with all the revolutionary impulses and even victories like we have seen in Egypt this is just the beginning. Brace yourself for more. The highlights of this month are:

• North Node Moves into Sagittarius March 3

• New Moon in Pisces March 4

• Mercury Marches into Aries March 9

• Uranus Shoots into Aries March 12

• Virgo Full Moon in Opposition to Uranus March 19

• Sun Steps into Aries March 20 & Marks the Vernal Equinox

• Sun Uranus Conjunction in Aries

• Jupiter Opposition Saturn March 28

• Sun Square to Pluto March 28

• Venus Graces Aquarius March 2 & Pisces March 27

On March 11, Uranus is returning for good into Aries after a short stint in it already last year from May 27 to August 12. This will set a whole new tone of impatience and anger with the ruling structures and can lead to war-like situations.

Then with Mercury and Sun also entering Aries in conjunction with Uranus, the flames of revolution will be dancing wildly. Also next year we will start into the series of 5 squares of Uranus to Pluto in 2012 continuing into 2015. Remember the sixties when we had a Pluto Uranus conjunction which started the whole process of societal changes.

North Node Moves into Sagittarius March 3

The North Node of the Moon is symbolizing your karmic destiny and future you are striving for releasing the old shadows and inhibitions of the past. For the next 18 months we will have to expand into new beliefs and horizons, reconnect with the divine in all of us, find time to learn and study and take advantage of the general supportive energy connected with our dreams and ambitions.

New Moon in Pisces March 4

The New Moon always is the start into a new cycle of inner growth and deeper connection to your inner world depending on the sign it is happening in. With Pisces there will be the potential of new dreams of a better world as well as the potential of grief or loss. The New Moon in Pisces is a very gentle soul completing one circle of evolution.

Mercury Marches into Aries March 9

Mercury in Aries is bringing radical thoughts, not much room for compromises and impatience. Our will power will be enhanced and we can take courageous steps into new ventures and projects.

Uranus Shoots into Aries March 12

This will start a new era of radical changes in society with new ideas and unprecedented scientific discoveries throughout the next 7 years. This carries a certain roughness with the revolutionary Uranus becoming a warrior in Aries.

You want to have a closer look at your chart and where it happens there and which planets and house are activated. This is how you personally have to face the dragon and do your personal work.

Virgo Full Moon in Opposition to Uranus March 19

The Full Moon represents the fullest light reflecting your innermost process related to Virgo matters. The Full Moon in Virgo invites you to reflect on your inner feeling of self value and how you are able to skillfully contribute to people around you. It is a reminder for proper self-care for the whole system of body, mind and soul.

Sun Steps into Aries March 20 and Marks the Vernal Equinox

The Sun carries the spirit of the courageous warrior and pioneer in Aries. It also marks the beginning of the vernal equinox in the northern hemisphere of the planet. A new astrological year is starting and with that another round and the potential of learning and implementing your highest potentials.

Sun Uranus Conjunction in Aries March 20

The Sun's conjunction with Uranus is foreshadowing an astrological year with major changes and sudden eruptions. Grass root movements will gain strength and importance but it is not an easy road traveled. Rebellion and riots all over the world will incite deep changes.

Jupiter Opposition Saturn March 28

Jupiter is completing his last opposition with Saturn and with that is establishing a new framework of shaping individual ambitions and collective social goals. A fresh bigger picture evolves.

Sun Square to Pluto March 28

The already prickly Sun in Aries will be receiving Pluto Energy with a square. We need to learn how to let go of the old and be deeply honest with ourselves. That will guide us to deeper self-realization and commitment to take the necessary steps.

Venus Graces Aquarius March 2 and Pisces March 27

And thank God for Venus and her heart oriented influence and love for balance and beauty. In Aquarius she wants us to find like-minded soul and friends to truly make a difference in our lives. In Pisces she opens the heart to unconditional love and the deep inner knowledge of our true oneness.

This is the spirit you need to nurture to do well in these turbulent times because what unites us will make us stronger. We can be of tremendous help for each other in small and big ways with family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances in our lives. We can make a difference in the world and that starts with each one of us. You are holding tremendous power in your hands, and in this challenging time you are called to use it.
