Recap of the February SOLAR Eclipse

Review of February LUNAR Eclipse

March is a great time to focus on long-term goals and to make strides on projects that have been underway for some time. Saturn will trine Mars on March 5th and Mars will trine North Node on March 14th bringing positive advances to long-term endeavours and related to your unique personal strengths! While there is some ‘stop and go’ energy during other times in the month, you might start to sense that your ongoing efforts are paying off. Have patience stay committed to what you want to achieve! 

This is also a good time for focusing on your personal goals, personal priorities, health matters or improving your health routines. This is also a good time to focus on your financial situation and possibly to bring more stability into your life financially, and it is a good time to ensure your day-to-day life is in alignment with your personal values.  

The Sun and Mercury will be meeting up on March 6th in Pisces bringing more clarity and also an emotional flavour to your communication. This can be a time when you are truly able to ‘say what you mean’, or when your true emotions are made known whether you want them to be or not.  

The full moon on March 12th in Virgo brings personal projects to completion and can bring resolution to health issues if they are present. Be careful about ‘heightened emotions’, typically experienced during the full moon and the potential for brewing conflicts to come to a head. The Virgo full moon can bring up frustration or self judgement if you feel like you have not made the progress that you ‘should’ have made by this point and it can also bring up frustration if you are not satisfied with your financial situation. Get ahead of this potential pitfall by working towards your objectives as early as possible in the month, and remember that real progress takes time. Have compassion for yourself! 

As Jupiter stationed retrograde last month, there is a general energy of ‘inward expansion’ and reflections of ones personal values and philosophies over the next several months.  There is also a more focused theme in March of inner reflection and gaining awareness this month of your inner thoughts, emotions and ‘pressure points’ or old wounds that can now be reconciled. Take some time for reflection and allow yourself to let go of any burdens that are coming in the way of your own inner peace. 

Specifically for Leo, there this can be a time for reflecting on your professional partnerships or relationships within your family (specifically relationships that involve shared resources) and can involve legal matters or matters related to your income taxes. For those born in the first 10 days of Leo, (or who have 0-10 degrees of Leo rising) you will start to experience this energy in your 9th house bringing attention to to your intuition, to philosophical truths or your goals for expanding your horizons through new experiences and new learning. 

Venus in Retrograde this month brings challenges to your experience of love, relationships, finances as well as self image. Troubles in your relationships may seem more apparent during this time and ‘past loves’ can come back into the picture. This is a very good time for forgiveness and for moving on from relationships that no longer serve a positive purpose in your life. Focus on compassion and on on putting yourself first during this time and avoid being pulled into ‘drama’. Feelings can be expressed honestly around March 25th, or you may suddenly see your relationships more clearly when the Sun will come into conjunction with Venus in this retrograde cycle. 

From a business perspective, this may be a time for unwinding from financial engagements that are ‘meant to end’ or which are no longer in line with your goals.  

There is a theme overall in 2017 being brought by an opposition between Uranus and Jupiter that will occur 3 times this year and occurs for the second time on March 4th.  For Leo, this can represent learning to follow your intuition in order to make better decisions. Uranus in the sign of Aries also represents personal changes so this can be a great time to resurrect any New Year’s resolutions that have fallen out of focus, especially those related to your diet, healthcare or exercise habits and in general how you manage stress in your life. 

March 20th brings the first day of Spring and the Sun will be moving into Aries!  Over the course of the month, the Sun and Mercury will be moving into your 8th house and into the sign of Aries. You will feel the bold energy of Aries building as we enter the spring season but Mars in Taurus in your 10th bring a grounded balance and practical point of view to this fiery energy. You may find your attention starts to shift towards career goals and aspirations and your intentions for the remainder of the year, just in time for the New Moon on March 27th, which will occur in Aries! This is a great time to make New Moon wishes for new beginnings, personal changes, personal goals and building confidence.  

Best of Luck!
