March 2018 Vedic Astrology Predictions
Just like that, it’s already March of 2018! So, what does this month hold in store for you?
For starters, there are two full moons—one in Leo, and one in Virgo.
At the beginning of March, our emotions will be fiery and passionate, but we will feel them shift to become more grounded and earthy by the month’s end.
There is also a Mercury retrograde (and debilitated) cycle. So tighten up your technology now!
Lastly, there is a dreamy Pisces new moon, which holds the promise of a creative, mystical adventure—or maybe an intoxicated, unconscious mess if we aren’t careful.
Today the moon is Full in Leo, which makes for a day of fiery emotions and passions. But many of these emotions are individualized and maybe even selfish. It’s important to connect with a pure form of feeling, something more selfless today. Plan an outing with friends and family, where you can share in the joy of being together with and for each other.
This full moon happens in the Nakshatra of Purva Phalguni, ruled by the God of delight. It is delightful to be the king, as there are many pleasures and joy that come your way. But the highest promise is to share that joy with others. Remember that today.
Venus and mercury will be established in Pisces today, and for the next several weeks. This will be a creative time, and a time of exalted romance and desire. But Mercury is debilitated here, so be careful misspeaking and getting confused about the “story” in your head.
The Moon is in Scorpio today, where it is debilitated. The emotions can be pretty stormy today, with jealousies and frustrations boiling over. Try to keep your head and heart pure. A more creative option is a few extra minutes on the yoga mat or spend on devotional practices.
Mars enters Sagittarius where it joins Saturn for the next couple of months. This shows us pretty fired up around our principles and inspirations. It can be good for putting your teachings into practice. But it might also show some contentiousness and even hostility around these teachings. Take care with the conjunction of Saturn, also in Sagittarius. This may show frustration with authority figures or existing teachers and traditions. Be careful what you are fighting for now and make sure it is worthwhile.
Jupiter turns retrograde, showing confusion about your teachings and life direction. You may feel directionless now and look for simple solutions to complex problems. For the last several months we have been trying to connect our philosophies and beliefs with our social circle, family and the other people in our lives. We see this playing out culturally, in the political realm, etc. Now we are revisiting these themes and we will be over the next four months.
The sun and moon will come together in Pisces, creating the new moon in the early morning of March 17. This begins a 30 day cycle where creativity, romance and spiritual evolution (Pisces themes) will be the most important. It’s a time to connect with a more “metaphysical” self. But you have to be careful not to “tune out” and just escape from the unpleasant reality of life on earth. Be careful of escapism. Instead, escape from the false reality into your truthful reality.
This new moon happens in the Nakshatra of Purva Bhadra, related to lightning and inspiration. The veil between worlds may be very thin now. Look for signs and signals from above to be a “lightning strike” of inspiration now.
The Moon will be in Aries aspected by Jupiter now. This can be an inspired time, full of purpose and action. Pursue what uplifts you, with courage and enthusiasm. Be careful with impatience, especially for those who don’t agree with your vision and higher purpose. Don’t forget to look for allies, not just competitors.
Mercury turns retrograde and the Moon is exalted in Taurus today. Mercury retrograde is a time to improve our speech, communication and relationship with details and technology. If we’re sloppy in these areas, we can see the mistakes pileup when Mercury goes retrograde. The real benefit is to speak less and listen more. Slow down and be thorough. Handle those things that need to get handled, whether they are “fun” or not.
Today the moon is in Gemini aspected by Jupiter, Mars and Saturn. This makes for a lot of ideas, but perhaps a sort of “intellectual overload”. You will feel like you are exploding with ingenuity and new ways to do things. But be careful with erratic and destructive speech, especially because Mercury is now retrograde. Try to channel your ideas into something inspiring today.
The moon will be full in Virgo in the early morning today. This phone is opposite the sun in Pisces, bringing a more practical and down-to-earth emotional state to the ungrounded and metaphysical Pisces cycle that I mentioned above. It’s important to balance the creative, emotional qualities of Pisces with the practical and down-to-earth nature of Virgo. But notice how you may be a little fussy over the neglected details today.
This full moon happens in the Nakshatra of Hasta, which literally means “hand” this is a very practical section of the sky, where we take what we imagine and bring it into a tangible form.
