March horoscopes with Karen James ✨
Happy Birthday to all the sensitive, artistic Pisceans. It’s time to enjoy the free-flowing streams of creative energy wafting through the ethers this month, until the Autumn Equinox on the 20th when we change into a higher gear.
The month opens with the Sun and Venus swimming happily along in Pisces, joining up with arch-mystic Neptune through the second week, energising your inner shaman, and bringing out magic and romance in even the most down to earth among us. So, paint your masterpiece, compose your symphony, or just fall in love – it’s all beautifully supported.
The New Moon in Pisces on the 13th chimes in, too, bringing a dreamy emotional tone, allowing for love to flow even more freely. This may be one-on-one romance or more universal love of all life. Swimming in the sea or a safe river may be a blissful experience. Chiron, known as the wounded healer, is also travelling through Pisces. This influence continues all year; bringing an opportunity to heal our relationship to art, creativity, spirituality and the way we struggle to manifest our dreams into reality.
Mars changes signs in early March, zooming into chatty Gemini, sharpening minds and wits, making wordplay and clever repartee a major feature of conversation. It’s a lovely opportunity to engage in some socialising and light-hearted fun.
Look out for the signs
A major feature of 2021 is the square aspect between Saturn and Uranus. Saturn is the planet of tradition, conservatism and social and economic structures. Uranus is the revolutionary, the iconoclast, the maverick. But this year Saturn is in Aquarius, sign of freedom, social change and individuality. And Uranus is making a long sojourn in Taurus, sign of comfort, peace, earth-based enjoyment – the slow-food planet.
Some have called it the time of freedom with responsibility, it will highlight where we long for freedom and where we feel trapped and constrained. The square forces us to face up to this conflict and find a creative resolution that serves our needs for both security and liberation. In February, we felt the first contact, pay attention to any feelings of stress that emerged, this will be your major issue for the year.
Happy Astrological New Year!
The Autumn Equinox occurs on March 20th, bringing the fiery Aries vibe to the fore. Venus joins in, too, revving up our need for action-oriented relating – it’s high-octane passion if you’re up for it. The equinox (equal day and night) marks the astrological new year, so see what you can finish off before then, especially letting go of emotional attachments that are well and truly over. Anyone or anything that makes you feel obligated rather than inspired is up for the chop.
March culminates with the Libra full moon on the 29th, bringing peace and co-operation to the fore. The full moon shines a light into the darkness, in this case any murky undertones in our friendships or intimate relationships. Allow peace and forgiveness to heal any inner wounds or conflicts with others.
So, in short, enjoy the dreamy and romantic start to the month, finish off old projects and over-it relationships, and get ready for a heady full-steam ahead April.
