Key Themes: Career, emotional healing, spiritual connection, emotional spaciousness, closing cycles
Dear Gemini, March will be one of those months that turns everything upside down. You may not recognize your environment (or even self) on the other side, but you can trust you’re on your way to a magical place.
We begin the month with Mercury (your planetary ruler) entering Pisces on March 2nd. This powerful transit activates your sector of physical manifestation/career/finances. Pisces rules all things spiritual, and while that might almost seem like two contradictory energies – you’re being invited to recognize that’s not actually the case.
On March 7th, a major astro event furthers this theme for you. Saturn will be shifting out of Aquarius, into Pisces. You’re on a clear path of learning how you can incorporate spirit, passion and play into all of your endeavors…even tasks like completing tax returns! These next two years may see a shift in the nature of your work, as you align your career path with your soul desires.
This transit also means you’re wrapping up a major cycle regarding travel, life purpose and/or truth. It’ll be a good time to reflect on where your life was 2.5 years ago, and the many specific ways in which you’ve grown wiser.
This shift might feel quite charged, especially as we have a Full Moon in Virgo on the same day. If you’re feeling more emotional than usual, honor this. This moon activates your sector of home, family and emotional safety. If you feel inclined towards spending time in solitude, cancel your plans and create space for yourself. This can be an act of self-love.
On March 16, Venus will enter its home sign of Taurus (until May 11th). Venus is very comfortable here, and the collective tends to feel it. You might experience this as a feeling of more gratitude and love for everything around you, and now will be the perfect time to express that to anyone who needs to hear it!
On March 20th the Sun enters Aries, initiating Aries season and the start of a new astrological year. This potent energy tends to kick things up a gear, and the winds of change may start to churn. In fact, they almost certainly will with our Aries New Moon on March 21st. The first New Moon of the astro year, this one will be key for setting intentions over the next twelve months. Activating your sector of community and belonging, it could be a powerful chapter to share with loved ones or a group. Why not join your local (or online) New Moon circle?
A few days later (March 23), we have the third major astro event of the month. Pluto (planet of radical transformation) will leave Capricorn, to enter Aquarius. This cycle began all the way back in 2008, and is finally coming to a close. Gemini, because it was activating your sector of life purpose, you may have experienced more turbulence (but also growth!) than usual during these last years.
The Pluto cycle isn’t completely wrapped up though… a few more retrogrades mean Pluto will revisit Capricorn (June 11), transiting back and forth until completely moving on (November of 2024). We haven’t had this kind of slow transit between the two signs since the 1700’s, where we saw all kinds of global revolutions. This is big Gemini, And you’re ready for it.
