Astrology is e a powerful tool to see how the macro energy of the cosmos aligns with the human happenings of our individual, microcosmic, journey. This year we’ve already witnessed a lot of “synchronicities” in how our planets are lining up with our regularly scheduled programming- the western calendar. Cosmic interference & existential support are amplifying the collective energy as we ebb and flow through the first months of this year, and the trend continues over the next few weeks… Early on in March we have a creative new moon in Pisces, Venus shifting into Aquarius, and Mercury going retrograde… and so it begins. Then halfway down the line we see a full moon on the same day the sun moves into the fires of Aries and we all experience an Equinox of either spring or fall depending on where you are in the world.. rounding out the month with a bang.

Below you will find a reading for the month of March for each astrological sign. Of course it is biased: in that it is one individual channel of interpretation and writing, but it is also sincerely honest in that a read with great care and sincere intention can support each and every person who reads this on the journey ahead. I truly believed in the cards and am trusting my intuition on this one. The spirit guided question: how can each one of us, influenced by the great cosmos of astrology, be our best selves, so that we can each participate in creating the best possible version of this world- together.
General Month Ahead for All Readers:
Six of Wands & Owl
This month, we in the western hemisphere, are beginning to shake off the cob webs of our winter hibernation and begin to emerge with the growing light of the sun. Many of us have experienced some pretty profound ‘dark nights of the soul’ this past season. Even if you haven’t been on a specific journey into the shadowy depths, we can all agree that the winter months are a good time for the inner work of deep contemplation… when we are encouraged to stay indoors, sit with ourselves, listen, and receive. A time to cocoon, if you will. The six of wands is a hopeful card of the imminent rising, the inevitable flight ahead, as we physically awaken from the darkness and experience more light. The owl is symbolic of the profound wealth we acquire by gaining wisdom. An animal of the night, the owl tells us that we have already learned so much through our pilgrimage into the mystery. We are so much wiser then before this journey began, and everything we have gone through along the way has been preparing us for what’s to come. So have no fear. March is a blessing, a large breath of fresh air. No more dwelling on what was, but instead look to the horizon and witness the powerful light growing in the sky. We are the beauty dawning with the sun.

Aries and Aries Rising:
The Emperor & Earthworm
The Emperor, often associated with Aries, offers the stability of the father and the sun… dependable and secure, he/she is a fiery leader who is passionate and driven. You may find yourself in new territory this month: the earthworm represents new beginnings and working your way from the ground up. As the days begin to lengthen, and we find our way towards spring, be intentional with what direction you’re heading. It is okay to take this month one day at a time, balancing your fiery nature with some intentional practices to ground. Take some time to put your feet on the earth, draw your strength from root to rise. Your innate nature will carry you through the crossroads while you navigate new spaces and take ownership of new roles you are stepping into. Be patient with yourself and try not to force anything to happen before its ready. You got this.

7 of wands & Crocodile

Take your life back into your own hands. It’s all up to you.
Gemini and Gemini Rising:
Mother Of Cups & Elk
The mother of cups and the father of the earth animals has a message for you… while both are at similar stages of their lives, father and mother, they often understand life circumstance from very different angles. Such is the journey of the Gemini: two forces of energy, unique to their own, but walking a path together hand in hand. The dualistic power, is a gift of both charm and mystique, but conflicts can arise when the corresponding natures weave their own tale. The wholistic vision of the Gemini becomes lost to victimhood of their own circumstance. You are so in tune this month with the psychic powers of the mind, that sometimes you may feel misguided about what is real and what isn’t .. It will serve you well to connect with your most grounded nature. As you become more activated in the upper chakras, find a practice that takes you deep into the layers of the lower three- root, sacral, and solar. Always sending the heart energy into all spaces with your intention. Find a way to plant your roots strong so as you grow into a better you, your life becomes a dance of trees swaying in the wind: flexible, moving, but never breaking. This month you’ll access more, make sure you have a way to ground down all this new and important information.
Cancer and Cancer Rising
Judgement & Peacock
March looks to be a particularly influential month for you, Cancer. You’ve come to a point on the journey where its time to stand up and take ownership of who you are and how far you’ve come. Free yourself from whatever blame has been holding you back keeping you small, and rise up into your full potential. The world will never see how truly special you are, until you are ready to show us all the many various layers that make you so uniquely beautiful. Your past is part of your story, crab. Let it empower you and give you strength. There is no need to fear forgiveness, you don’t need to be afraid of letting go. This month is an opportunity to put all the pieces of yourself back together, or maybe realize that in actuality- you have been doing that work for some time now. Reward yourself for your efforts. You are a masterpiece, Cancer. Release the belief that you don’t deserve to be seen for all that you truly are.
Leo and Leo Rising
Justice & Black Egg
Abundant March will be rich in opportunities for self-expression, Leo. Make sure you are sharing from the truth of your own experience and communicating from a place of deep authenticity. People are listening, so use the spotlight as divine intervention to raise the vibration and amplify love into the collective frequency. Choices have consequences, actions create karma, and this month you will be asked time and time again to speak up, stand up, and use your lioness flare to make a difference in your world. Clear the channel of the throat chakra, have conversations with your breath to connect with intuition. Be very aware of what contracts you are saying yes to: remember that a verbal agreement is an energetic bind, and can often carry more influence then a paper with a signature. Become so genuine in what you stand for, that you are ready and waiting to take a stand when the universe beckons you to show up and speak up. Time to share your light, Leo.
Virgo and Virgo Rising
Four of Swords & Whale
Permission to take an entire month of self care Virgo.

Relearn yourself… reawaken the profound healing wisdom that is rooted in the most ancient memories of your soul. You have all the answers you seek, waiting for you to acknowledge them. Ready to hold you and embrace you with more love, more truth, and more of the pure essence of who you really are. Find solace in self care, strength in meditation, and so much compassion for all that you have already overcome on the journey.
Libra and Libra Rising
Father of Pentacles & Gazelle
This month you’re finding your flow as you hustle for a dream that brings balance to every area of your life. You know know that you’re capable of making it happen, but hesitation is a normal part of the process, especially with societal norms constantly telling us we’re not worthy of making our way doing what we love. It is a domineering voice of fearful leadership that doesn’t favor the unique mind, outspoken voice, and entrepreneurial way. Trust your instincts, Libra, and don’t be afraid of what people are saying. The truth is, most are admiring you for putting yourself out there: inspired by your courage and intuitive drive. When the mind starts running rampant, stirred by anxiety and vulnerability, engage in a practice that slows you down. Connecting with activities that feed your soul and nurture your body. Get out in nature, sleep in, move the body, or simply just take a moment to close your eyes and breathe deeply. You got this libra, you always do.
