March 2018 east coast time zone by Ananur Forma 207-594-2565



No planets are retrograde until March 8, when Jupiter will turn retrograde at 11:46 p.m. until July. Meanwhile other planets will be taking there turns turning retrograde. I will keep you informed. Just to remind you- when there are no planets retrograde, we are in the flow and there are little chances for obstacles blocking our forward momentum. Although, on my flight home from the gulf coast of  Florida my flight was cancelled yesterday (“maintenance issue”) and I had to try to “sleep” in the airport, I was Not angry (my body was uncomfortable) I did learn some cosmic lessons that I had not fully comprehended previously, so no blockages there, anymore hopefully.

I am much more relaxed, when I let go of thinking how things ought to happen, and on what time schedule. Maybe you’ve already got this lesson all resolved?



We have enjoyed the luxury of no planets retrograde since January 2 at 9:11 a.m. seems like it ought to be significant some how, doesn’t it? 911 Call for help has been heard,” is what comes to me intuitively. That was my immediate response when the Twin Towers were “air bombed.” I stood outside my dome home in Crestone, Colorado, looked up and said, “We really need help.” According to all the sacred teachings the answer is consistent- help is here. It comes from a shift in our thinking- to one of seeing and knowing (believing) that Love is real, God is Love, and that if we shift to that awareness, the world will reflect it back to all of us, rather than allowing fearful thoughts to run the show, and then create our external world. I’m voting for this way of Being. You can count on me, doing the best I can to stick with it, nurturing Love… on the inside and out.

March 1 Full Moon takes place at 7:51 p.m. with the Moon at 11 degrees of Virgo opposite the Sun at 11 degrees of Pisces and Neptune at 13 degrees Pisces. Whoa. Talk about “letting go.” This Full Moon offers the opportunity to let go even more and in many different ways. It may be useful to focus in on unconscious expectations that are held near and dear and allow them to be released. When we do this… more mystical and exciting events and expansions take place. Just looked at Trump’s natal chart with the Full Moon chart around it, and found many direct connections between the planets. I say- he gets caught in lies at this time, and it will be very contradictory and unsettling for all of us. Mars will be exactly on his south node and Moon in Sagittarius! Whoa. That could be dangerous, due top the fact that this is based on past lives and old karmic debts, left undone and needing completion and resolution.


Ok, so watch for something rather dramatic to take place in the White House. They might not share “the impact” with us for a few days after.

March 1 Venus has been in a positive aspect with Jupiter for a few days. It completes, at noon today. This is a party aspect great for fund raising and being with friends and also for making new ones. There is a temptation to over do it with sweets, gourmet foods, and shopping and spending more than you had planned. The generosity gene within you just got activated! Gift giving is fun, today!


March 2-4 the Sun is conjunct Neptune in Pisces until 6 p.m. bringing about a feeling of spaciousness of being spaced out. It can also find you more psychically tuned in- which is great for meditation and retreating from daily routine life. It’s perfect for artistic and musical creations to unfold as they may… from the spiritual planes and not from the mind figuring out… what would work? Mercury is conjunct Venus in Pisces until midnight: this favors writers for allowing their talents to unfurl. It’s also great for honest communications when needed to express what has been felt but unsaid.


March 6 – May 13 Mercury enters into Aries at 2:35 a.m. Long time for Mercury to stay in one sign, this is due to the fact that Mercury will be turning retrograde this month. March 22 it goes retrograde until April 15 at 5:21 a.m. With Mercury in Aries your mind is sped up and many more thoughts “come and go.” The trick is of course, you know, not to give attention to all these thoughts, but pick and chose the ones that have validity for you. In fact the “good ones,” ought to be written down and shared, or maybe do some research about?


March 8 Jupiter (in Scorpio) will turn retrograde at 11:46 p.m. thus ending our blessed phase of, “no planets retrograde.” The next time we will experience, “no planets retrograde,” will be…January 6, 2019 until March 5, 2019. I love it when there are no planets retrograde as it gives a chance for us to move forward with much less frustration, and much more support from the Cosmos.



March 8-11 the Sun is in an empowering aspect to Pluto, generating courage to overcome the past, and “walk the walk,” to become the Self you already are… deep down inside. You may choose to get some help uncovering old patterns, which need to be released. It will be worth it to clear the path to a new way of being true to yourself, like never before. During this phase, Mars is in a positive aspect to Uranus, encouraging you to try something new, be adventurous, and take some risks. You’re feeling daring and confident and want the freedom to do what you want without anyone telling you “this or that.”



March 9-11 (until noon) Mercury in Aries is in an awkward aspect to Saturn in Capricorn. This aspect brings about worrisome thoughts based on fears and insecurity from the past. If you can recognize what’s going on in your mind maybe you can change it. I talk to my Higher Self and ask for help and release from these kinds of thoughts and try not to give them any attention.



March 11-13 Venus in Aries is in a challenging aspect to Saturn in Capricorn, known to bring about problems in close relationship, usually about trust and reliability. Someone’s feelings are hurt and you just don’t know what to say, or do? Also the Sun, in Pisces, is in a positive aspect to Jupiter in Scorpio.  This could not be better. It brings about healing and compassion and it ought to improve our world financial situation. Your needs are taken care in ways you could not have imagined, and yet it all works. Your psychic sense of things is at an all time high. Those born between March 11-16, July 13-18, or November 13-18 of any year will do well financially during this phase.


March 17 a New Moon cycle begins at 9:12 a.m. with the Sun and Moon at 26 degrees of Pisces conjunct Chiron (large asteroid), at 28 degrees of Pisces. Uranus is at 26 degrees of Aries bringing it’s might to the energetic! Could it be that there is some sort of truce legally signed to stop the violence in Syria? I think it looks possible at this time. Have you read James Twyman’s book, “Emissary of Light?”  It’s a good read. There are people of “ high spiritual intelligence and compassion, who pray and meditate every day (for many hours!) for world harmony. This is happening right now. In Fairfield Iowa, there is a huge meditation dome filled with mediating individuals for world peace, created by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi the founder of T.M. (Transcendental Meditation) Plus many other groups of dedicated lovers of life and it’s people and living creatures. This New Moon cycle will be filled with healing and also with people dying, hopefully peacefully, without physical suffering! I have also learned by observation that this combination could place considerable attention on mental illness and the need for furthering understanding of those individuals who experience multi- dimensionality and get lost and confused by it and therefore need help to live in this complex world. I worked in such a residence for years. Certainly with more news of school shootings there could be some concern for those who are suffering from mental illness although I think that those who shoot to kill and destroy are not to be included in the definition of mental illness, this is something different and could be the result of sheer loneliness, a distortion on what life is for, and certainly a desperate need for attention.


March 17 – May 16 Mars will enter into earthy Capricorn which is good for figuring out financial situations and how to improve them. It may demand that you do some research, however it could be well worth it.

Mars in Capricorn is good for leadership trainings and increasing confidence with new developing skills. It’s also an excellent time for organizing your work group to get better pay and benefits.

March 18 -20 (until noon) Mercury and Venus are conjunct in Aries works well for writers who dare themselves to enter into areas unknown and allow their adventuresome writing skills to explode in new directions.


March 20 the Sun enters into Aries and we call it the spring/vernal equinox. This takes place on the east coast at exactly 12:16 p.m. When there is a little more daylight than we’ve been used to in fact it’s almost equal day and night. This is a symbolic message to all of us that male female roles are meant to be as close to equal as possible. Sure some personalities are stronger than others, whether they are male or female.


March 21-23 Venus in Aries in a challenging aspect to Pluto in Capricorn and will cause quite an upset in personal romantic relationships. This is interesting because Trump has Pluto opposite his natal position of Venus in Cancer this year, until November 2021. Trouble in paradise? Will “they” tell us? He’ll probably blame it on us?


March 22 – April 15 at 5:21 a.m. east coast Mercury turns retrograde at 8:19 p.m. while it’s at 16 degrees (or 17) of Aries. Anyone who was born with the Sun or Moon or has their Rising at 16 degrees of Aries, will find this to be a challenging Mercury retrograde phase. That would be anyone born with the Sun at 16 or 17 degrees of Aries was born: April 7 or 8 of any year. These folks need not sign any legal documents during this phase, or start a new job or career. Just relax and do some research so to put well thought out plans into action when Mercury turns direct on April 15th.



March 22-24 the Sun in Pisces is in a challenging aspect with Mars in Sagittarius. Anger is apt to burst forth without warning. You can be easily agitated as patience is at an all time low. You want things to happen fast. You want everything to fall in place “your way.” When everything doesn’t happen your way, you’re apt to be upset and express it angrily. Those who happen to be in your orbit, are apt to react to your energy! which could be unpleasant.



March 26-28 Venus is conjunct Uranus in Aries. This conjunction brings about romantic attractions. Warren Beatty, Elizabeth Taylor, Steve McQueen, and George Clooney were born with this kind of magnetism, living it everyday. For the rest of us this aspect can bring about flirty people who are fun to be around.


March 27-29 the Sun in Aries is in an awkward aspect to Saturn in Capricorn bringing about frustration and more obstacles than we can count. Plus Mercury is retrograde. Try to be patient, I know, it’s a serious challenge, when the Sun is in Aries! Try not to get stuck in negative analysis of why the blocks are there for you and others.



March 30 – April 1 the Sun is conjunct Mercury in Aries (retrograde) finding you exceptionally outspoken and in need of an audience. Your mind is inspired and you need to express your thoughts and in fact, the more you do, the more there are brilliant thoughts that come!

March 30 Mars and Saturn are now conjunct between 7-9 degrees of Capricorn, which tends to be excellent for paying close attention to details and working hard with exceptional determination and perseverance. This conjunction is also known for (sometimes) to be expressed as sarcasm and cruelty. It is often found in charts of those who perpetrate domestic violence and other types of assault, usually due to having been the unwilling recipient or observer, at an early age, of incest or physical violence. There is boiling rage hidden deep within which comes out only at certain times, it is not obvious that it’s there. Being physically active helps dissipate this energy.  On the other hand, this conjunction helps to develop self discipline and orderliness.



March 31 Full Moon takes place at 8:37 a.m. with the Moon at 10 Libra opposite the Sun at 10 degrees of Aries; both are in an awkward aspect to Saturn at 8-9 degrees of Capricorn.
