by marystevenson | Mar 29, 2017
We are all ready for Spring, right? Before I get into the new planet movements for March, in case you are on Twitter, please follow me @VedicStarExpert – hope to see you there! What a nice change, to get away from February, which brought the two eclipses.
3/01/2017 – MARS moved into its own sign of Aries where it is very strong. It gives the Aries Rising and Moon chart people much energy, drive and ambition. Just watch out for some rashness, impatience and temper issues. For Scorpio, which Mars also rules, this represents your 6th house of enemies, rivals and competitors, helping you overcome same. You may have to confront some delays, until Mars moves on 4/12/17.
3/04/17 – VENUS goes retrograde. It remains in its sign of Exaltation, Pisces. This brings happiness to the Pisces and Taurus Rising and Moon signs. Still some worries for the Libras, since this is your 6th house. It will go forward into direct motion on 4/14/17. It stays in Pisces until 5/30/17.
3/10/17 – MERCURY enters Pisces, joining its friend Venus there. In this sign, Mercury’s dignity is “debilitated” meaning it feels weakest in this sign. However, the fact that it is sitting with an Exalted planet grants “Neechabhanga yoga” which contributes to cancellation of debilitation. At least Pisces does represent very good houses for both signs that it rules, Virgo and Gemini.
3/14/17 – The SUN enters Pisces now as well, for a one month stay. For Leos, the sign that the Sun rules, this unfortunately is your 8th house of vulnerability and transformation, thus not the most comfortable transit. Already Venus in this sign has been multiplying how vulnerable you may feel, since it’s been in Pisces.
3/20/17 – VENUS goes combust the Sun. This is a brief, ten day period, ending on 3/30/17. Times of combustion bring a tendency for feeling more irritated than you normally would, with less tactfulness, for the signs ruled by Venus, which are Taurus and Libra.
3/21/17 – MERCURY gets out of the combustion period that it has been in since 2/16/17, bringing relief to those ruled by Mercury, which are Gemini and Virgo, and improved communication in general.
3/26/17 – MERCURY enters Aries. Here, it is out of its debilitated status so communication for everyone should improve. For Geminis, this represents your 11th house of gain, income and fulfillment of desire, so enjoy it while it lasts! For Virgos, however, this is your 8th house of transformation and vulnerability, which may be experienced on either the physical level, the feeling level or in terms of your business, since for you Mercury also rules your 10th house of career. It will stay here all the way to June 3rd, due to a Mercury Retrograde period coming up next month.
