March opens up a major portal of change. As this portal opens, intensified winds of change will bring world events that will reshape our human condition on Earth.
Personal lives will also experience change, change that is part of the transformation from a dying Age of Pisces to an Age of Aquarius.
The first week of March begins the process of change as expansive and inspiring Jupiter trines inventive outside the box Uranus. This combination triggers the powerfully transformational square of Uranus and Pluto. It will provide an awakening of sorts, in that we will be able to more clearly what is really happening- more of a bird’s eye view. It is a good time for new and inventive ideas and inspiration.
Venus in Aries also will trigger the Uranus/Pluto square in the first week of March.
That aspect will tend to bring relationship difficulties into the open, where they can more easily be seen for what they are. Is there still heart in the relationship or not? Can it be transformed out of dysfunctional and toxic into healthy and heartfelt? If not can it be salvaged at all? And new relationships that form at this time may be meaningful.
World relationships will also be important in March. It is important to know that the Iranian nuclear issue comes to an important turning point in March 2015.
The Middle East is a very important place on Earth for world transformation, as it is where the first civilizations and major organized religions were birthed.
As the Age of Aquarius is meant to be about equality and Diversity within Unity, it is important how the balance of power in the world shifts.
Empires and Organized Religions were important players in the Pisces Age, which began around the time of Christ over 2000 years ago.
And now the Empire of the USA and Western World is in the process of becoming more humble and an and a more equal member of the world community.
President Obama has connected with Cuba and has been trying to bring a peaceful resolution to the Iranian nuclear issue.
In the first week of March, Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu will speak in front of the American Congress. This meeting was made “behind President Obama’s back” and outside of normal protocol.
He will be trying to convince Congress that the deal that is apparently forming with Iran is dangerous to the world. He does not want a deal, and instead wants Iran on its knees accepting a deal that would castrate any potential power to even defend themselves. Israel by all accounts has hundreds of nuclear weapons and the strength of the USA behind it.
If a decent deal is not made with Iran, the dangers in the Middle East increase exponentially. In the last week of March the form of a deal with Iran is due or else all will fail. In that case the Middle East will be more dangerous than ever.
The Middle East has been greatly changing since the Arab Spring, when Uranus and Pluto were just beginning their square dance. Because the planetary alignments in March are so important, all events that happen during that time period move up from normal importance.
In the second week of March, Mars in Aries triggers the Uranus/Pluto square. This will bring more war-like cries, more danger for conflict on both world and personal stages.
Mars is more about action than talk, and so what has been alive only as an idea or plan becomes activated.
On March 16th Uranus and Pluto make their last of seven exact passes with one another. What is happening around the Ides of March will give clues as to what is coming to our human family.
Then on March 20th, on the day of Spring Equinox 2015, there will be a rare event for that day: a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces. That will bring a lot of emotional expression, potentially out of control. It will also be part of the signature for the season of spring 2015, promising a powerful season of changing tides.
Another eclipse, a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra will happen on April 4th, bringing more intense waves of change.
If you were born in the middle of the month of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn you will be most affected by the the Uranus/Pluto square and the eclipse in April.
If you were born at the end of the month of Pisces, Gemini, Sagittarius or Virgo you will be greatly affected by the Solar Eclipse on Spring Equinox.
Besides the Middle East, watch closely for evidence of a declining economy. Watch closely also for natural events like Earthquakes during this opening portal in March/April.
It is very important to know that the coming changes and sometimes ugly events are part of something bigger, a shift to a more just, fair, and balanced world with more equality and honored diversity.
And we do have a chance for a more graceful transition, with out too much horror.
Did you ever expect the Berlin Wall to fall as it did or for the Soviet Union to break up as it did? Was not the breakdown of Apartheid in South Africa kind of surprising how it happened?
And who would have predicted a black American President with the middle name of Hussein? And two terms?
So maybe the last great Empire and Superpower will become a more equal member of the world community without too much devastation.
But of course we need to be prepared for more destruction also.
This coming late winter and spring will provide a turning point on how it all goes down. Each of us can work on our own consciousness, our own beliefs and attitudes. We can each become more of how we want the world to be.
