You can read the article in its entirety here, but here is the introduction to the overall planetary view for March: March is packed with planetary activity which means that the energy around us will be powerful and provide an impetus for transition and transformation. Uranus and Pluto are moving closer towards the second phase of their dance which will culminate in a square (90 degree) formation in May of this year, creating drama and resistance as the old forms (Pluto in Capricorn) are breaking away for greater individual liberty (Uranus in Aries). At the same time there is a big stellium in Pisces made up of six planets that will align with the Moon on March 11th, a powerful Pisces alignment that has the potential to create a flood of divine consciousness, but also to drown our intelligence in a sea of confusion. However, a harmonious sextile between Saturn and Chiron ensures that if we avoid laziness and apply discipline to our lives during this time (Saturn), healing can occur and we will become more wise in the ways of the world (Chiron). This is helpful because Jupiter (ideology and belief) is moving towards a strong square to Chiron that will tend to draw us away from the process of healing if we’re not careful. Jupiter doesn’t always see the necessity of effort, and sometimes a lack of attention will cause the exposure of wounds by Chiron to be more painful than it would otherwise be. On the other hand, Jupiter does bring opportunities for healing if we can stay the course rather than flee to more comfortable territory. Pluto is powerful now as it slows down in preparation to turn retrograde in early April. Throughout the month of March it will move less than a half degree, meaning that if you are being affected by a Pluto transit right now at 11 degrees it will remain pretty intense for the next few months. Pluto is retrograde for about six months of every year, as are the other outer planets, so the retrograde is not unusual. But Pluto acts with force and intensity, and this will not be a time when the superficial can have any importance.
