March 2015

March 2015

Each square aspect suggests a dynamic tension which means resolution and breakthrough. This alignment fits almost perfectly with the prevailing Uranus-Pluto square, which lasts from 2012 to 2015. We live in dynamic times of tremendous change, decay and growth, both on personal and collective level.
Pluto in Capricorn allows us to break with tradition and let us build a new reality.
Uranus in Aries is the rebel and innovator. All crucial changes in the world are a reflection of this long, cyclical pattern of change and reform. Earlier hard aspects between Pluto and Uranus led to the first major stock market crash of 1929 and the rise of Fascism in Germany. The times that we are experiencing can actually be seen as a repetition of historical themes from the 30s, but also revolutionary themes the sixties again pass by.
A few days before the Total Solar Eclipse on March 20, 2015, the final clash between Uranus and Pluto happens on the powerful 15º, so especially Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn will experience this intense energy, as well a breakthrough or new direction for companies incorporated under these Cardinal signs. The Autumn of 2008 marked the beginning of the global financial crisis. Actually this revolutionary period began in 2010, with the Arab Spring in Egypt and Tunisia. The Occupy Movement in the summer of 2011 marked the run-up to the first exact square between Uranus and Pluto in 2012.
The external and internal revolution arising from the five-year struggle between Uranus and Pluto, has changed the world forever. Fast sequential radical socioeconomic changes and the global financial crisis have challenged us, both personally and collectively. The relativity of security has been proven, pledges have proved to be worthless. The clash between the old established order and new evolutionary impulses is characteristic of this period. Massive global protests, the collapse of economic systems, rebellion against the government's failure and disclosure of corrupt governments. Liberation of the individual by letting go of limitations and taking personal responsibility.
Humanity has undergone an internal revolution and experience a cosmic initiation as a whole.
The exact moment of the last square between Uranus and Pluto is a turning point.
After March 17, 2015 a period of gradual restructuring and a long road to peace begins. Political developments cause further social unrest. The global economy remains unstable due to the influence of the retrograde Jupiter. When Jupiter will turn direct on April 8, 2015, there will be some political relaxation. However, there will be many years of uncertainty, turmoil, crisis and conflict follow. Changes never occur without sacrifices, but they are necessary to enable growth and development. A snake can not grow before it has shed its old skin. It is the same with the world. The new world can not develop, if the old remains.

First the good news:

In the first half of March 2015 the positive connection between Jupiter retrograde in Leo and Uranus in Aries continues! This beautiful Trine is a glimmer of hope in hectic times ... This warm interplanetary handshake began in September 2014 and gives us the feeling that we can overcome all difficult circumstances and take a new independent way in achieving our goals. The collaboration between Jupiter and Uranus leads alongside a desire for personal freedom to opportunities for success, positive changes and innovative breakthroughs. The power of Jupiter and Uranus accelerates the pace of life, however, drastically.

The less good news:

The seventh and final exact square between Uranus and Pluto takes place on March 17, 2015 and lasts until March 20, 2015, but that does not mean we are redeemed of all misery. The square between Uranus and Pluto has a large orb, so the impact of this very powerful intense energy lasts to the end of this year will continue at least until early 2016.
As of March 11, 2015 Mars joins Uranus in Aries. Mars is the ruler of Aries and fires Uranus up with additional power. Together they go to war to do battle with Pluto in Capricorn. Both Pluto, Uranus and Mars are direct, so there is no stopping them! In the middle of this rough period Saturn goes retrograde in Sagittarius. In one word, this means civil disobedience! Rules are no accepted and will be trampled in the revolutionary advance!

Saturn turns retrograde on 4° Sagittarius on March 14 2015, just before the last exact square between Pluto and Uranus.
The retrograde Saturn inhibits the world. From the beginning of this year we experience a troubled and hectic atmosphere, an atmosphere of panic football in which bad decisions lead to far-reaching problems. The retrograde Saturn wants us to say: take it easy and unwind.
Saturn retrograde has a great impact on distressed companies who struggle to keep their heads above water. During this retrograde period many companies will face an important decision. Expand or reorganize? The retrograde Saturn in Sagittarius will ensure that in these hectic times personal freedoms will be protected and stay that way.

On March 14, 2015 our fast messenger Mercury enters the dreamy waters of Pisces and falls into the arms of Neptune and Chiron. The media will seduce and deceive the masses with a false picture of reality. On March 16 and 17, 2015 Mercury in Pisces forms a square aspect with Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius. In this intense week of the exact Uranus-Pluto Square lies, dogmas, false rhetoric and faith-based manipulations are no longer accepted. The truth. The truth above all!

Whether humanity will learn from this cosmic lesson will prove itself in time.

Also this year eclipses occur. Eclipses come every six months. Every six months a Solar Eclipse occurs with New Moon. A Lunar Eclipse occurs with a Full Moon. The effect of an eclipse is often felt for weeks beforehand and it takes weeks before the effect wears off. The Lunar Eclipses fall in 2015 on the axis Aries-Libra and are all related to relationships. The Solar Eclipses fall on the Virgo-Pisces axis this year. They show next big challenges and changes for Pisces, Virgo, Gemini and Sagittarius.
A Solar Eclipse is actually a very powerful New Moon. With a Super Moon, the Moon is closest to the Earth. The Sun, Moon and Earth are aligned. This Super Moon moves between the Sun and Earth and obscures the light of the Sun! The Sun, our source of heat and light, is briefly obscured by the dark and mysterious Moon. A spiritual moment that triggers the subconscious. A New Moon means the end and the beginning of something.
Just before the spring equinox takes place, a total Solar Eclipse occurs on March 20, 2015 at 29º place in the sensitive, emotional Pisces. The final grade in Pisces is the last stage in the zodiac and marks the end and beginning of the new solar cycle.
So soon after the exact square between Uranus and Pluto, this Super Moon will be an energetic portal to profound changes. Pisces is also the sign of the dolphin and has a connection with the oceans, with all the sea creatures.
The total solar eclipse in Pisces is connected to the fixed star Scheat. This could lead to enormous problems having to do with water, disaster at sea or large-scale nuclear pollution of the oceans. This Solar Eclipse Start could thus be an emotional event that could cause a stir. Something will come to an end. A convulsive secret deal or cover-up that has to do with religion, karma, spirituality and beliefs will be revealed. The connection to the retrograde Saturn in Sagittarius shows that openness is given in a social problem that will contribute to stability in the world. On the world stage, the curtain falls for someone or something and will enable new global economic problems.
The Solar Eclipse will be visible in Iceland, North America, Europe, North Africa and Antarctica. This Eclipse activates energies from 2003. Themes from that time will be once again topical. Unfinished business, things of the past and unpleasant facts come to order in the next lunar cycle of 28 days.

An Eclipse has a major influence on the world around us, but also in your own world. When a Solar Eclipse happens on your birthday or a few days before or after your birthday, you will experience this theme the entire solar year. Major changes will be visible on your next birthday. Consult your own zodiac sign on this website to see what area is important for you.

After a few hours after the Total Solar Eclipse, the Sun enters Aries, the signs of Spring.
The Sun begins a new solar cycle, a new beginning of the karmic cycle. Pisces is a gateway to Aries, the birth point, the beginning. In Pisces we have learned through karmic lessons that we are all one. Aries wants to activate this knowledge. If we stick to what has been no progress will be possible and we continue to face tragic events. Only when the realization permeates that we are destroying ourselves and our planet , only then, change is possible.
We are in this together and we need each other’s strength to make the change. It is up to us whether we make the choice to bring our lives to a higher purpose, or that we continue to follow the path of greed and destruction.

On March 21, we celebrate the spring equinox, the beginning of Spring, the festival of Ostara, the goddess of the shining light, growth and creation. A particularly strong period during which new energy to constructive changes can lead us and in the world around us.

Spring has arrived.
The beginning of a new astrological year.
A new phase of spiritual growth and awareness dawns.

I wish you all an inspiring month March 2015
