TRANSFORMATIONAL ASTROLOGY OF 2014 A Synchronistic Month of March By Henry Seltzer


A Synchronistic Month of March

By Henry Seltzer


The astrology of March features a once-more closing in of Uranus and Pluto in their volatile square combination, plus the retrogrades of Mars – only just beginning in late Libra – and Mercury, officially ended but still in its retrograde shadow until the 21st. As in the previous month of February, we are therefore inner oriented. Uranus is also given a boost by a stationing Jupiter in exact square to Uranus and in opposition to Pluto. The trauma of these times is indeed closely related to Uranus and Pluto coming down, in their storied square, to wrest us from our complacency and get us to ask the difficult questions of ourselves such as where do we need to be learning and growing, as we shuck off behavior that has no real utility for us any longer in our more evolved understanding of ourselves. In this way, we are all going through some degree of future shock, based on our own continuing evolution, to the point where we no longer even recognize our former selves.


This is an exciting month of March, because while we are turning further to the unconscious side of our being, in order to examine our inner workings more closely, we are also venturing out upon new psychological territory that is new and daring. This concept is reflected in the close Uranus-Jupiter square that is near exact for the entire month and on throughout April. Its moment of exact comes next month, on the 20th, magically just as Pluto and Uranus form their exact square at very nearly the same degree and minute of their own respective signs. Meanwhile, Mars in Libra in its retrograde motion comes quite close to exactly opposing Uranus. As we prepare for this cosmic event, hailed by many as the “cardinal grand cross,” still to come next month, we have in March a very strong dose of Uranus and Jupiter, closely aspected by the Pisces New Moon, indicating that brilliant ideas come to us with more frequency than even lately. These are accompanied by synchronicities that signal their symbolic resonance with meaningful change to take place in our thoughts and eventually our deeds and in a revitalized organization for our society.


Saturn in Scorpio is also powerfully configured in this monthly cycle, stationing retrograde on March 2nd and making aspects to personal planets and to Jupiter over the first week of the month. This introduces a note of caution into the picture of otherwise wildly optimistic Jupiterian high jinks, and reminds us that it is the very structure of our lives that is changing.


Chiron, the Wounded Healer, placed in Pisces near the degree of the recent New Moon, remains in close sextile to Pluto, so that one big factor in these March skies continues to be our recognition of inner wounding, along with acceptance, recovery and moving on with our lives in spite of everything. Once we can take a more wholly spiritual approach to our lives, the trauma of the past can be overcome and lived with, and even gladly taken in. We are getting ready as a collective to over the waterfall into a newer and freer world, and there is definitely some associated angst to deal with, along with much wonder also.


When Mercury leaves its retrograde shadow, passing its previous station degree in early Pisces, on the 21st, one day after the Sun moves into Aries and springtime begins, it comes quite close to the numinous energy of the Neptunian archetype, which it intersects two days later at the time of the Last Quarter Moon. This will be a confusing and a holy time, when we might begin to see through thinning veils to the other-dimensional realities symbolized by Neptune and made manifest within these earthly realms as music, poetry and dance.


ARIES (March 20-April 19). The roller-coaster journey of this climactic year continues, Aries. This month you ride the waves into the next installment of your looming transformation. Inner work is definitely up as you reexamine key areas, not least of these being relationships of all stripes, including business partnerships. Many other areas are in various stages of coming to a new dawning; in particular, the way that you meet the world is in process of a huge seismic shift. This applies as well to career moves and actually to every way that you actualize and relate. This is not to say that the metamorphosis you find yourself in the midst of is anybody else’s story but your own. You are the chief architect and planner, as well as the one who must execute on the eventual details.


TAURUS (April 20-May 19).This is an exciting time to be alive, Taurus, as the galloping of your wild ride prolongs itself and realizations continue to pile up. You are getting messages from underground, informing you of more and vastly different sets of ideas for your way forward than ever you dreamed. You are charged with energy for revitalizing your path ahead to your next stage, and your optimistic intentions will bear fruit, although note that the time for acting on these improves toward the mid-month Full Moon. Relationships are changing gear on you, which could mean that you feel as though being thrown a curve. With flexibility and by relying on your deep intuition, you can handle it; especially if you are willing to let go and let the universe just proceed to move you along.


GEMINI (May 20-June 20). It is once more a season of change for you, Gemini. After coming through last month’s retrograde of Mercury, your ruler, outer achievement means something altogether different for you than it did a month or so ago. There is a compassionate feeling that you have been more recently bringing to the table, and that gets an extra boost early this month as the first week of March wears on. You are tuned to inner proclivities and embodied self-expression as you navigate the sweep of worlds inside you becoming more visible in outer realms. Surprising connectivity continues to suddenly light up your life with new information and chance groupings. It is all leading you to an ultimate purpose, that you might grow in your concept of self-worth and do it on your own terms.


CANCER (June 21-July 20) This is yet another amazing month for you, Cancer. As you continue to reflect on life and love you are exploring your own unique pathway forward, and your deep intuition is supremely important for this process of self-discovery. As you work with your partnership dynamic in many different ways, you are feeling closer than ever to finding a career offering that makes sense to you all the way through. It is in the absolute alignment of your head and your heart, of your need to produce in order to survive coupled with your talents and your most deeply held convictions, that you will find true happiness. You are building to a better sense of this through the trials of real-world incidents along with the graceful experience of your inner, and essentially spiritual, understanding.


LEO (July 21-Aug. 21) You are expanding in your heart, Leo. Profound inner process and shifting worldview moves you, as you continue to explore your depths. You are getting a sense of commitment to a new set of possibilities for prospective endeavor that is in the world but not of it. You are bringing in a new sense of curiosity regarding what more you might be able to find inside yourself. Having played this game for many months already, which is actually deadly serious from the standpoint of future benefit, you are fascinated to discover further realizations that await you. It is important to recognize, as a dramatic spring continues to unfold, that it does not get any less intense. As is the case with all spiritual information services, the message will repeat until you get it.


VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 21) Your world is expanding, Virgo, at times with a sudden rush that leaves you nearly breathless. It is all part of a journey of self-discovery that feels foreordained. You have recently been exploring concepts of service to others that have been such a fundamental part of your nature that you have been in some ways blind to the nuances. Old patterns of behavior, the ones that you might need to get past for more complete progress could begin to yield if you only are able to face them squarely. You are in the midst of another epiphany-packed month that brings important partners very much into the picture, as an adjunct to your own process of growth and change. You could also be getting clearer about what your most basic premise actually comprises.


LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 22) This late winter continues to be a wild ride for you, Libra. Another in a series of amazing months has you in its spell from the very beginning. Investigations regarding principles of service to the surrounding collective are morphing into a revolutionary concept of compassion as a mission statement. You are also looking more deeply into your connection with important partners, and the impact of relationship on your life in general. Surprising insights in this important area seem to arise out of the very heart of the universe itself. This is in the context of an extremely fortunate and at times startling success in the material realms, as you virtually redefine your creative output. All of which leaves you freer to ponder the extra-physical planes of existence that you are also visiting on a regular basis.


SCORPIO(Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You are going all out for the poetry of the moment, Scorpio. You are in the process of redefining yourself and your self-expressive output, with an eye to your inner world, as another intensely interesting month begins to unfold. Dream work and an inner feeling of peace are conduits now to finding a more integrated sense of self. The way that you tell your story to others has become almost more important than the story itself. You are playing a leading role in the drama of your life and the manner in which you come across. Some near-madness at the very core of your being has got your earnest attention, giving you intuitional clues as to your next stage, which likely involves greater soulful communication of your most fundamental and inherently brilliant ideas.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 20) This is your month to shine, Sagittarius, in positive and life-changing ways. You are also coming alive in deeper moments that get to the heart of difficult matters and illuminate them from the inside out. Your true goals now are for this kind of inner work, which while it does not bring you the thrill of immediate pleasure, actually inclines to the long haul and the lasting lessons. Your creative output is dazzling and could at times suddenly bridge the gap between inner and outer achievement, like a monument that momentarily appears to your startled vision before it slips again into the mist. Your values are shifting, so that surface ease seems only a part of the possible pie, with the other part buried somewhere inside you and containing equal measures of pain and joy.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) A difficult and fascinating time awaits you, Capricorn. You are feeling your way into a brighter future over the course of a month that is not scintillating but filled with a quiet glow and a touch of mystery at the core. This will continue to amuse your mind and bemuse you senses even as it morphs into something else entirely. New information suddenly appears out of nowhere or brought to you through the auspices of helpful partners that seem to be delivering God’s own telegrams direct from your Higher Self. The shape shifting quality of this period might confound you but you will not be bored. In the end you will recognize the quality of this time in bringing the deeper intuition at your center together with outer world accomplishment that it truly underlies.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 17) An interesting and magical month awaits you, Aquarius. You could find that your most prized ideas, mainly concerning what you want to do in the world to make the most of yourself, come together now with sudden unfolding. Through the course of a difficult year you have gradually moved closer to a spiritual ideal, perhaps once thought to be unreachable. Now, suddenly, the impossible dream begins to materialize. Financial and other resources manifest in support. The challenges and changes of the next few weeks and months are additive to what has already gone down, and send you on your way to the bright promise of a more fully engaged sense of self. This is simultaneously mysterious and known, paradoxically strange and yet ordinary, your very own idea and a gift from the surrounding cosmos.


PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19) This is a terrific month for you, Pisces, in this, your birthday time of the year. Your sense of who you are is quite expansive now, and partaking in all the recent flavors of your development, both easy and also those connoting trials and difficulty. These are all important pieces of your current arc of massive development, and you would not want to miss out on any of what has gone down. Your inner process is one important aspect of your existence lately, and this continues, as the stars align for you to prepare for and then to make your move over these next months. You are blessed with a positive self-image along with the feeling that you simply must investigate new pathways forward in order to stay whole and sane.
