The New Moon in Aries connects us to The Spring Equinox
The New Moon in Aries is just hours after the Spring Equinox, so everything changes as we start the astrological new year in the first sign of the zodiac.
This New Moon might also bring an important revelation linked to the longer trend of Mars in Gemini. Mars will finally leave Gemini on March 25, and before then you might need to end or complete something that’s been lingering or bothering you since last August 2022.
I have as my inspiration Archangel Michael who brandishes the Sword of Truth. For me this relates to Mars in Gemini as swords are the tarot cards of the air signs.
In Doreen Virtue’s Ascended Masters deck of cards the meaning of Archangel Michael is wise advice:- Take action without delay or hesitation. No more procrastinating-just do it. Break big goals into smaller steps and take one step today. Let go of perfectionism and know you’ll do fine.
Venus is in Taurus The Lover
Venus is now an Evening Star. It entered Taurus on March 16th. It can be seen after dark as it rises higher in the night sky. Its an impressive sight. Venus is the diamond in the sky, so brighter than Jupiter.
On March 23/24 the crescent Moon will join Venus in the early evening sky. This is the most beautiful sight and in the story of Inanna it opens the Heart Chakra.
On March 30th it joins Uranus.
Mars in Gemini is ending a 7 month tour on March 25th when it moves into Cancer
With Mars changing sign into Cancer on March 25th after its long 7 month stay in Gemini, its a welcome relief for those who have Cancer as their rising sign. Gemini has been activating your 12th house of sleep and dreams!
Cancer is an emotional water sign ruled by the Moon, so its not a favourable place for fiery Mars.
However it is a cardinal sign connected to the 4 turning points in the seasons. Cancer is the Summer Solstice.
Cancer is a mothering energy, so my hope is that more compassion can be shown to our enemies, or at least a truce. In the Tarot Cancer is The Chariot.
Tad Mann’s affirmation for The Chariot is “I conquer my instincts and emotions with the intentions of my higher self and achieve physical goals.”
Looking ahead, Mars will move into Leo, a sign where it is strong on May 20th.
Aries and The Tarot
In the tarot Aries is The Emperor. Tad Man’s affirmation for The Emperor is similar to The Chariot and Archangel Michael. “I have the willpower, discipline and ambition to take the first step on the path to meet my highest goals.”
Saturn in Pisces
The most important event of the year started on March 7th when Saturn-Lord of Karma – enters Pisces for the next two and a half years.
Saturn gets a bad press as its nature is heavy representing gravity and reality. To work with Saturn is the key. In the Vedic system the remedy for Saturn is being of service and supporting charities through our direct involvement. Saturn rules time, so once we give of our time and effort we can reap the reward. It is also Mastery as the effort we put in makes us a master.
Key Dates March
7th Saturn enters Pisces
19th Mercury into Aries
20th SPRING EQUINOX Sun into Aries
21st Aries New Moon
23rd Pluto into Aquarius. This is a brief transit until June 11th when it returns to Capricorn.
25th Mars into Cancer. Ends 7 months in Gemini.
28th Mercury joins Jupiter. Think big!
30th Venus joins Uranus. Unexpected liasons!
Jupiter is now direct. It moved into Aries on December 20th 2022 for approx. 5 months. Then it will move into Taurus for an entire year on May 16th until May 26th 2024. This is wonderful news for Taurus and Scorpio.
Saturn moves into Pisces on March 7th. This ends two and a half years of Saturn in Aquarius so comes as a welcome relief for all Aquarians and the other fixed signs of Leo and Scorpio. Water signs will benefit as will earth signs.
Think back approx 29 years to remember what was going on in your life back then. Its approx. February 1994-to April 1996. It’s a far gentler energy that it has been for the past 5 years! Saturn rules boundaries so can contain water with walls. Think of a swimming pool. This makes water and therefore emotions safe. It stays in Pisces until May 2025.
Uranus in Taurus is now direct activating 15 degrees Taurus. Make some practical changes in your life and throw out anything that doesn’t bring you joy! (It went direct on January 22nd.)
Neptune The Dreamer is now direct. In Pisces it favours all the water signs. Watch your visions and dreams, get creative and meditate. We now have an opportunity to bring our dreams into manifestation. Trust your intuition. Venus joins Neptune on February 15th– just in time for Valentines Day.
Pluto moves into Aquarius on March 23rd. Pluto is an outer planet and affects world events. However it becomes more personal if it connects with one of inner planets in your chart. These are the Sun, Moon, Mercury Venus and Mars. It is activated at mid-life when it makes a square to itself around the age of 38. It moves into Aquarius briefly on March 23rd until June 11th 2023.
If you are struggling to find a theme for the year ahead for your business or personal life, then I can help.
Using the Solar Return chart along with your age tells you what your guardian angel-the planet/archetype that is in focus for your year ahead. This special guiding planet for your birthday year, is known as a time lord.
So ages 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84 are rebirth years with a focus on the first house.
The 12th house years are 11, 23, 35, 47, 59, 71 and 83. These are years of retreat, of going within.
This Time Lord repeats every 12 years, however the Solar Return chart is always unique.
For example, if the sign for your year is Leo, ruled by the Sun, then it’s a year for leadership and creativity.
If its Gemini, ruled by Mercury then its a year to write that book or get busy with launching or refining your website. Networking with like minds is also excellent.
I can then tell you what months are best for being visible, and what months are best for some rest/holiday or retreat. I gave examples of some famous people-yes- including Prince Harry!
I gave a MasterClass on this subject. I explain the ages and what they represent. If you have your birth chart it will really help you understand this technique. I use whole signs for the best results rather than the Placidus house system.
You’ll learn how important your birthday and your age is, and how this shapes your mindset, mood and levels of motivation for the year ahead.
You’ll be encouraged to apply the cycles and techniques you learn to your chart. Or, of course you can book a special session with me!
Theme of the Year Consultation Each session is for One Hour for £75. This is for those who have had a consultation with Pam.
Pam’s profections and solar return combo reading was an innovative and enlightening experience!
She shared the theme for the year as well as the targeted themes for each month of the year and crucial dates. This provided a focus for each month and a heightened focus of awareness for each month as well as key dates for a sharper focus.
We covered such rich ground it felt like an odyssey.
I would be thoroughly remiss if I did not add how lovely and generous Pam is, and how her lightness, along with deep knowledge, makes the experience.
Highly recommended. Patty B.
Many thanks again, Pam, for your awesome expertise, generosity and healing. Your Theme of the Year reading has energised me to move forward into 2023 with grace and passion. I also have clues now about 2024 as well! Your care and dedication to helping us all evolve makes you a fabulous counsellor and educator. I look forward to consulting you again. Anita
Theme for the Year Consultation
After taking Pam’s free Master Class, whereby she explained how to use Profections to focus on the year ahead, I was intrigued; particularly as I was only weeks away from my solar return in February.
As I wanted to ensure that I made the most of the promising opportunities I anticipated were in store for me during my forthcoming Jupiter year I booked a consultation with Pam. I knew I had only grasped the rudiments of the system. As I suspected it’s a lot more complicated than just knowing your Lord of the Year!
Pam began by telling me about what had happened in my life during the past year. She doesn’t know me that well so it was uncanny: she told me why the previous twelve months of my life had been beset by difficulties and in which areas. Thereafter, as Pam unravelled my chart for this year—month by month—she provided me with a lot of detailed information about the influences that I will find myself under during 2023 and how they will manifest.
Pam is a warm, gifted astrologer who wears her learning lightly. At no point did I feel that I was listening to a dry astrology lecture. Rather my consultation was informative, enlightening and empowering. I highly recommend her. Sophia
