Sun Signs for March ’17
(To see your Sun sign right away, scroll down.)
The information in this column is limited. It does not replace your seeing your astrologer. If you know the sign of your Moon and your Ascending sign, read those sections also. This information is helpful because it mentions planets passing through your sign. These do bring opportunities.
Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in March. The emphasis this month is on the signs Pisces, Aries, and Taurus. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Pisces sympathizes and bonds, Aries acts with enthusiasm, and Taurus creates calm and pleasure. Jupiter is in Libra for most of ’17 and promotes, justice, beauty, and civility. Jupiter is squaring Pluto and opposing Uranus at times in ’17. The later can bring progress, the former extremes. Still, good choices are necessary as Jupiter is judgment. Early in the month Mars joins this group and creates stress among the movers and shakers. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3 and Mercury in weeks 1 and 2 are in Pisces. We are focused on mysteries and their presence near Neptune adds to this. The Sun in week 4, Mercury in weeks 3 and 4, Venus all month, and Mars in week 1 are in lively Aries. We feel young and active. Venus is retrograde this month, so let’s take care in love, social, and beauty matters. The bodies in Aries share space with Uranus and an unusual air is about. Mars is in stable Taurus in weeks 2, 3, and 4. Since Mars can be troublesome, we should take care with finances and nature. Let’s find positive ways to express stress and conflict. Bottle beer not anger. Saturn continues in Sagittarius until Jan. ’18. Sagittarius, Gemini, Pisces, and Virgo should set sensible goals, maintain vitality, get rest and sleep, and seek out joy and joyful people. Saturn is trine Uranus and sextile Jupiter. This is a harmonious relationship between slow moving planets and brings good to us in business, law, and science.
A New Moon in Aries on the 27th, the 28th , and morning of th 29th is a new young start. A Full Moon in Virgo later on the 10th, the 11th, and 12th brings an awareness of vision and mission.
Remember that new, full, and quarter moons are powerful times during the month. Actions taken at these times should be positive and well thought out. The quarter moons are in Gemini on the 4th and 5th and in Capricorn on the afternoon of the 20th, the 21st, and the 22nd.
Israel continues in the news. In their birth chart, early Scorpio rises, a Taurus Sun is in the 7th, and Moon, Pluto, Saturn, and Mars are in Leo in the 10th. Iran has three planets in Aquarius forming a grand cross with Israel’s planets. This is a tense relationship.
The Pluto Uranus square is weakening but the placement of Jupiter is helping it to continue during much of ’17. It makes the extreme unpredictable and the unpredictable more extreme. When you hear about events that are unusually bad, like tornadoes ( Moore OK.) and earthquakes, Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Colorado floods, the Philippines typhoon, the Washington mudslide, the IL F4, the Ca. Drought, and the recent floods in Texas this is one of the culprits. This aspect existed in the early 30s. I have concluded that this square also represents among other conflicts, the conflict between the left (Uranus) and the right (Capricorn). I have finally resolved it in my own mind. With so much news coverage of the conflicting positions, I see it as an opportunity to see the good that the left has to offer and to see the good that the right has to offer. I’ll be writing a paper on the Uranus/Pluto square soon and posting on facebook. Friend me. I’ll include the good things that are coming from this square like new discoveries about death and the afterlife.
Saturn has left Scorpio, where it showed intense grief. I’m happy that I have read, “Life after Life”, “Evidence for the Afterlife”, “Proof of Heaven”, and “Heaven is for Real”. These books are as close as we can get to evidence for heaven and an afterlife, with the exception of having an NDE. As evidence they are very comforting. Incidentally, “Proof of Heaven” came out while Jupiter was in Gemini. Jupiter is optimism and faith, and ideas and books come under Gemini’s rule. (We now have the new show, “Proof” on cable.)
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 10, 16, 24, & 29. For really important events, it requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get in on the ground floor of understanding existence and self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking.
