Astrological Report for March 2024

Astrology is a tool of time and space.

As the Solar System runs through its cycles, astrologers follow the patterns the same way a meteorologist follows the weather. Each month different points in the sky form important relationships, which we call aspects, that indicate emerging, changing, and enduring patterns.

This blog will look at the month ahead and discuss the most prominent and powerful aspects, and how they impact life on earth. These impacts will connect to both personal and current events to show how the astrological weather report can help you “weather” your life and navigate each month successfully.

What is Ongoing?  Transits, Ingresses, and Retrogrades

 

Transits

Transits occur when two Points form a certain type of angular relationship with one another. The most powerful among the transits are the conjunction, square, and opposition. Points that conjunct merge together by sharing the same sign and degree. Points that square align by the degree in signs that are 90 degrees (or four signs) apart. Take the sequence Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn – Libra and Capricorn are four signs apart and square one another. Points oppose one another when they are 180 degrees apart.

Conjunct Points merge energy. Points squaring challenge one another. And Points opposing one another try to harmonize and attain balance.

Ingress

Ingress occurs when a Point changes signs, causing the Point to change its tone. If a Point is in Aries, the tone is active, aggressive, and ready for action. But when the Point ingresses into Taurus, the tone becomes slow, steady, and settling.

Retrograde

The term retrograde describes forward motion that “appears” as backward motion. Since astrology views the Solar System from an earth-centric rather than sun-centric point of reference, there are times of the year when Points in the sky “look” like they are going backwards. The effect is known as retrograde motion, which occurs when a faster moving body passes a slower moving body and the observer is on the faster moving body watching the slower moving body “go backwards” as they pass each other.

Ingresses

 

The Sun

The Sun changes signs on March 19th. As the Sun moves from Pisces to Aries, we transition from the dreamy and intuitive waters of Pisces into the bold and assertive fire of Aries. Pisces, a mutable water sign ruled by Neptune, encourages empathy, creativity, and spiritual connection. Now, Aries invites us to embrace courage, initiative, and individuality. This shift prompts a period of dynamic action, self-expression, and assertive leadership as we blaze new trails in pursuit of our goals.

Mercury

Transitioning from Pisces to Aries on March 9th, Mercury‘s journey fosters a shift from intuitive and empathetic communication to bold and direct expression. Words become assertive and straightforward, reflecting Aries’ fiery energy. This astrological change encourages assertive communication, courageous expression of ideas, and taking initiative in conveying thoughts and intentions with clarity and confidence.

Venus

Transitioning from Aquarius to Pisces on March 11th, Venus‘s journey cultivates a shift from unconventional and intellectual connections to a more compassionate and dreamy approach to love. Social interactions become infused with empathy and sensitivity, prioritizing emotional connection over practicality. This astrological change encourages us to embrace romantic idealism, deepen our emotional bonds, and explore the mystical dimensions of love and relationships.

Mars

Transitioning from Aquarius to Pisces on March 22nd, Mars‘s journey brings a shift from collective and innovative pursuits to a more introspective and compassionate approach to action. Energy is directed towards spiritual and creative endeavors, with an emphasis on intuition and empathy. This astrological change encourages us to channel our enthusiasm into imaginative and soulful pursuits, embracing intuition and empathy as guiding forces in our actions.

Retrogrades

There are no retrogrades in March.

However, Mercury will go stationary on March 31st. Mercury going stationary signals a period of intensified communication and mental focus. As Mercury slows down before changing direction, there’s a heightened emphasis on clarity, reflection, and attentiveness to detail. It’s a time to review plans, reconsider decisions, and pay close attention to communication channels. Be prepared for potential delays or misunderstandings, but also seize the opportunity to gain deeper insights and refine your thinking processes.

Week to Week Aspects

The week-to-week aspects only take into account aspects involving Mars to Pluto because their duration is long enough to make a noticeable impact on global affairs. There will be only two aspects between the outer points (Jupiter through Pluto) continuing from December 24th: a sextile between Jupiter and Saturn and then a conjunction between Jupiter and Uranus. All the rest of the activity will be generated by Mars, and last roughly 5 days at a time.
