Biz StarCast – March 2023 Editionby Leslie Tagorda
March 2023 Biz StarCast
Activate your Initiation
New beginnings, self direction, individuality, passion, desire, exploration
This is the month that defines 2023. It’s full speed ahead in March. Vast energy shifts with 7 planetary shifts (2 massive), all planets going direct, and days with explosions of energy changes, this is your month to launch!
This is the month where when you look back, you’ll know this was the catalyst, where you are asked to fill your heart with self-compassion and faith as you face the future. There is no turning back.
The two shifts that define all of 2023, not only both power hitters of the sky, Saturn and Pluto shift into different signs. And oh goodness, is it a sign!
A sign of a new era, a sign of a new collective energy moving, full speed ahead. While we won’t fully arrive into this new era until 2024 when Pluto stops vacillating between Aquarius and Capricorn, in March we step through the threshold towards the future.
In the first full week of March on March 7 we have our Virgo Full Moon + Saturn Moving into Pisces, joining Mercury, Sun and Neptune.
In the second week of March, we experience an Aries stellium adding fuel to start your fires. Both benefics, Venus and Jupiter plus Mercury meet up with Chiron the wounded healer, gifts you amplified value from your personal healing. Then Venus moves into her home sign of Taurus.
As we move to the third week, we receive the Equinox, a powerful Aries New Moon at Aries 0º and Pluto moving into Aquarius, all within 72 hours! Another key that points to this is a new beginning.
In the span of 4 weeks, the cosmos will feel entirely different. The shock and aftershocks of the last few years lay fresh mulch for the groundwork you are now to begin mastering to spark both your intuition and initiation.
We are now in the cosmic transitional space between here and there. Stay centered in the vortex of all this cosmic energy swirling. There is stillness there so you can keep moving at your own direction and initiation.
The world will never be the same after this month.
This is the time you’ve been waiting for. Put away the procrastination, put away the fears, and take that leap of faith into the future!
March Cosmic Shifts:
- Mercury enters Pisces (Mar 2)
- Saturn enters Pisces (Mar 7)
- Venus enters Taurus (Mar 16)
- Mercury enters Aries (Mar 17)
- Sun enters Aries (Mar 20)
- Pluto enters Aquarius (Mar 23)
- Mars enters Cancer (Mar 25)
- Full Moon Virgo 16° (Mar 7)
- New Moon Aries 0° (Mar 21)
In a pinch and want to remember which days are best for which task? Go with the planetary days.
- Sunday (Sun): Create, radiate, source
Do what you love!
- Monday (Moon): Feel, intuit, nourish, care
Define how you want to feel and listen to your intuition to plan your week.
- Tuesday – Mars: Act, motivate, initiate, lead
Take action on your tasks on this productive day.
- Wednesday – Mercury: Think, speak, write, communicate, share info
Get on social, send an informative email, share your voice.
- Thursday – Jupiter: Believe, expand, teach, gratitude, promote
Work on your website, send a press release, and promote your business.
- Friday – Venus: Connect, combine, appreciate, beautify, soften
Focus on money, relationships, beauty and appreciation.
- Saturday – Saturn: Mastery, boundaries, “no”
Take time for yourself to fill your cup.
How to use these cosmic energies:
- These are the collective cosmic energies available to us all.
- There is nothing to be fearful of. Get curious about what we need to learn.
- For larger shifts, you’ll feel the energy a week leading up to and away from.
To personalize energies:
- With conjunctions/meetings or lunar activations, look to the degree of the activation and find where that degree lives on your natal chart.
- Your astrological house in which the degree occurs is where in your business or life more information is available for that cosmic shift.
Week of February 27 – March 4
“If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.” — Maya Angelou
This week, Jupiter, the planet of expansion, is here to magnetize Venus, the ruling planet for what matters to you, and what is beautiful to you.
In the meantime, Mercury is entering the illustrious sign of Pisces, encouraging us to understand our fantasies and see what is beneath that, bringing it into reality with our words and our hearts.
Ask yourself – what is the most attractive to you? What feels like a dream you’re ready to speak into existence, no matter what battles you’ve been facing lately? This week is a time for you to understand and honor that.
March 1, 2023

9:36 PM PT | 12:36 AM +1 ET
Amplify your ability to receive
How will you attract all that is for you?
A most auspicious week leading up to and a few days away from this brightest of meet ups. The expansive power to connect YOU with all that is yours, all that allows you to be a magnetic leader, and all that you are meant to inspire in others.
Bask in the brilliance of these two merry makers of the sky to spark your initiative!
Especially activating for fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)

A busy day for Mercury on this Jupiter day. Before Mercury splashes into sensitive Pisces, Mercury brings it in with a quick nudge up against Saturn in Aquarius, where they can say more with less.
Mercury conjunct Saturn
6:34 AM PT | 9:34 AM ET
Say more with less
What boundaries must you express and in what way?
Mercury and Saturn blend together at Aquarius 29°. This is a good time to make more impact by saying less. Or you may be asked to draw the line in expressing your boundaries. Or you may not be able to say all you want to say. You can still express your thoughts, a little goes a long way to create change.
Mercury Aquarius conjunct Saturn Aquarius 29°
Mercury enters Pisces
2:52 PM PT | 5:52 PM ET
Communication beyond words
What nonverbal or logical ways are you expressing your business?
Mercury, our thoughts, logic and communications, has now entered Pisces. We had a short few days of crystal clear, forward thinking before splash! Pisces is anything but logical. Pisces is dreamy, imaginative and much prefers communicating in abstract ways like art, music, or silence. Luckily, Mercury is full speed ahead, spending just a two weeks until March 17 in this watery space. While in Mercury, it’s a good time to perceive and understand the messages you receive from your highest self and Spirit. And in the Earthly realm in your Work harness artistic, non-linear, non-tangible ways to communicate your desires and share your ideals.
For Luminaries with Mercury in Pisces natally, you are imaginative and don’t always express yourself clearly. You’re not meant to express yourself in tangible ways, so instead, lean into your poetic expressions. Even in your business and marketing, give yourself permission to paint, haiku, or sing to get your point across. Also, note how you are a channel to other ways of knowing and expressing. Your best ideas often come through you from other realms. If this is the first time you’re hearing this, get curious and experiment with bringing through wisdom from your intuition or beyond.

Make Peace with Your Hurts
You have been hurt before. By leaders you trusted, by the risks you’ve taken because you trusted others to have your back. For a few days before and after this meet up, Venus, the planet of connection and values and Chiron the wounded healer that asks us to contribute the lessons of our hurts back into society, share space in the sky. Together they spark a new cycle of appreciating the value of those lessons that at one time caused you so much pain. Now, what will you do with this new found value to connect you as a wounded leader to the people who are now suffering the same pains.

“Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.” — Mary Kay Ash
This week, the Full Moon in Virgo with Saturn ingressing into Pisces asks us to pay attention to how we can transform our limiting beliefs — go beyond what we let ourselves imagine we can do.
The most transformative day of the entire year will bring much contemplation and much discernment. Ask yourself — who am I ready to be now? What is the time calling for me to see?
Don’t worry about any anxiety you may have — turn it into excitement. Go with the flow, and let yourself breathe through it all. Your Work is ready for an upgrade in what you dare to imagine and dare to execute.
March 7, 2023
One of the biggest days of the YEAR. The Virgo full moon illumination lays out the red carpet across the cosmos for Saturn to arrive into Pisces. With Chiron sitting in between Jupiter and Venus this week, we are allowed to connect and expand our Chiron contribution and wisdom into our most impactful Work.
Full Moon Virgo 16°
4:40 AM PT | 7:40 AM ET
This Virgo Full Moon is ready to illuminate all that is. To remind you with this bright full light to celebrate all you have already received of your wellness and wholeness. And to prune away the blocks that keep you from manifesting your Piscean desires.
The Virgo full moon, always during the Pisces season of compassionate Universal love, and interconnectedness desires for all beings to be in flow, ease and connected to divinity. Most often our greatest block to this transcendence is simply our own self-compassion.
During the Virgo Moon, reflect on the duality of Virgo / Pisces in your life and Work:
- Wholeness vs Oneness
- Wellness vs Health
- Flow vs Regiment
- Avoidance for fear of feeling too much
- Perfection, Analysis paralysis
The Sun and Moon face off less than an hour before Saturn moves into Pisces where the juggernaut will stay until February 2026. It’s a massive shift where spiritual mastery and commitment to self-compassion will come through.
Once Saturn joins Pisces, he will join the Sun and Mercury already there as well as Neptune.
During this full Illumination, Neptune is supporting the Sun, blending, dissolving, like watercolors or essential oils, creating something even more divine. There is no way to contain this energy, instead you can center it like a synergetic vortex to focus.
The Sun is also given opportunities to awaken and uplevel by a sextile to Uranus. Harness this energy to break through the constraints of perfectionism and conformism of Virgo to be uniquely YOU.
Full Moon Ritual Visualize
Imagine your energy a vortex. A swiftly moving cyclone, nature’s way to focus and move vast amounts of energy with ease. What you need is spun inward to the stillness that sits at the eye. And all that you no longer need is spun out of the vortex.
- What does it feel to center into the eye of the vortex with all you desire?
- What is spun out that you no longer need?
- How can you remind yourself to stay centered in the eye of the vortex while the chaos of the World continues to spin around you?
Your Spiritual crystallization shines bright.
Saturn enters Pisces
5:35 AM PT | 8:35 AM ET
Prioritize Your Flow
This is one of the most significant energy shifts of the year. Saturn, the planet of mastery, achievement, and structure is done with restructuring Aquarian ideals and now ready to bring maturation to Piscean themes. Saturn takes about 30 years to circle the Zodiac, the last time Saturn was in Pisces was between May 1993- April 1996.
Think back to 30 years ago to the experiences you endured that helped you gain a level of spiritual emotional maturity.
And if you are a lucky soul about to approach your Saturn Return, those around 30 or between 58-60, this is a significant fresh start for you. The feelings you’ve had of letting go and molting your circumstances are real so you can make room to crystallize into something even more.
And if you’re a Pisces Rising, sometime over the next few years, you will have a similar feeling to the above Saturn return, where you consciously or unconsciously let go, identities, roles, positions, business offers… to room for a new success cycle.
For all of us, in this Saturnian season of Pisces, we will learn to bring mastery and deepen our empathy, spirituality, flow states, connection to the divine and connection to all.
Week of March 12 – March 18
“I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me.” — Tracee Ellis Ross
Neptune is the star of the show this week. With aspects to the Sun, Mars, and Mercury, look at how your vision feels. Has it been shifting? Is it adding new legs? Do you feel renewed inspiration to change it?
Saturn also just went into Pisces, Neptune’s home, inspiring us to look at our fantasies and commit to them more deeply.
Meanwhile, Jupiter is here to tell you this week that you bring a unique resonance to the collective, and your gifts are here as a valuable part of that. Venus enters her home sign of grounded and calm Taurus while Mercury enters initiator, passionate Aries to bring additional motivation to embody and embrace your mission.
With all this fuel to your fire, what are you excited to create?
March 11, 2023
Jupiter conjunct Chiron
10:53 PM PT | 1:53 PM ET
Believe your greatest wounds are your greatest gifts
What gratitude do you now have for all the hurts you have overcome?
For a few weeks up to and away, Jupiter who expands and adds purpose meets up with Chiron who turns our unhealable wounds into our greatest contributions to the World. In Aries, Chiron explores how it is safe to exist. Chiron shows us that in our quest to feel safe to be, we accommodate, overcome and exceed past all the ways we haven’t been safe to be. It’s in these nooks and crannies of surviving and thriving despite our core wounds that we see what we learned, is what we need to share back into Society through our change making Work. With Jupiter here, you are expanding on your own inner belief and finding gratitude for all that you have overcome, even if the wounds never go away.
Especially activating for Cardinal and Fire energies (Aries, Cancer, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Capricorn).

Mars square Neptune
4:39 PM PT | 7:39 PM ET
Devote to channel Spirit to lead
How is your voice leading you to spiritual alignment in your life and Work?
Mars in quick Gemini and Neptune in spiritual Pisces at 25° square off like a first quarter moon phase. With this kind of energy, experiences are catalyzing us to act. If we are not consciously aware of this energy, it could feel as if we are a target of energetic jabs. And if we are in tune with this energy, this will feel like we are being nudged into a better alignment, like a deep stretch of a yin yoga pose that isn’t fully comfortable at first but as you relax into it for a few minutes the tension releases.
To alleviate this is to devote to harnessing these activating energies in your body and voice. You’ll feel this energy for a few days leading up and away.
What spiritual movement is calling you? Taichi? Yoga? Dance?? When you move your body you will get deep insights into your next step as you combine the practical and the ideal.
How can you embody Spirit in your messaging and what you say? Meditation, journaling, channeled messages?
Devote to this embodied inner knowing.
Especially devotional for mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces).
Mars Gemini square Neptune Pisces 25°
4Q Moon Sagittarius
7:08 PM PT | 10:08 PM ET
Freedom to let go
What will you liberate yourself from in your Work?
Letting go is freedom. Freedom is lightness and truth. This week with the 4Q moon phase, you now know what past stories and beliefs have weighed you down for too long. You now have awareness of whose beliefs have been narrating your stories. Get out and explore this moon phase, even if it’s walking in a new neighborhood or trying a new cuisine. This will give you a fresh perspective so you can fully release those old beliefs that no longer serve you in both your life and Work.
The last quarter moon phase is an integration phase in our lives and Work. A healing and restorative time to cultivate all that we have learned and assess (ie: a great time to review website and social metrics to craft a new story) what we want to continue with and what we want to churn back into the earth as nourishment for the seeds we’ve planted.
March 15, 2023
Sun conjunct Neptune
4:39 PM PT | 7:39 PM ET
Vibrant powerful vision
What makes you feel creative, artistic, imaginative and connected to your Highest Self?
A great day to let your imagination soar.
It’s been a quiet time in the cosmos and much needed. As the Sun (creative vibrancy) and Neptune (visionary Spiritualist) meet in Neptune’s home of Pisces, we go through deep and meaningful interconnectedness to all.
“You are not a drop in the ocean, you are the entire ocean in a drop”
Let this be your theme for today. How do you drop into the ocean, and how can you feel out into all the deep mysteries of knowingness? Is it a guided meditation? Is it watercolor? Is it singing mantras? Dive oh so deep today and let your creativity and vision soar. Your Spirit will guide the way if you let it.
Look to Pisces 25º to find that sweet spot on your chart. The house that contains that connection point is where you will find more access to your Divine.
Sun Pisces conjunct Neptune Pisces 25°
March 16, 2023
Another BIG day in the cosmos with the inner planets, Mercury, Venus and Mars pinging the outer planets. Whew! A day to center and let all the energy swirl around you.
Mercury conjunct Neptune
10:13 AM PT | 1:13 PM ET
Be the channel to your highest self
What are your dreams and visions wanting you to perceive?
A great evening to receive visions and understanding
Late in the day, Mercury and Neptune meet up in Pisces, linking the conscious and super-consciousness. There is a visionary feeling of this fleeting moment that, if you can find space to connect and receive, will have the capacity to let you download messages from your Divine. While not necessarily a practical aspect for work or commerce, it is a great time to see a greater purpose and perspective. Your thought process, while not logical, is open and vast. What grander understanding might you receive about living and working in greater ease and flow?
Especially visionary for Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces)
Mercury Pisces conjunct Neptune Pisces 25°

12:59 PM PT | 3:59 PM ET
Impactful emotional charisma
How are you harnessing your deep emotional magnetism?
Close and trusting relationships are at the core of your successful change making Work and authentic leadership. No one expects you to know everything and Spirit wants you to be curious to express your vulnerability. Vulnerability is your key to emotional magnetism. What can you reveal about yourself that you’ve been hiding? What can you ask of others to gain clarity versus assume? Harness the energy of this transit, a few days before and after the exact meeting to reveal emotional magnetism that draws in your soul relationships.
Venus in Aries squares off with Pluto in Capricorn, at the last critical degree of Cardinal signs. Similar to a first quarter moon phase where outside experiences will catalyze you into action. At the last degree of Aries and Capricorn, be aware of the shadow sides of these signs that may come up. While it may feel challenging at first, know that these events will put you on your highest path.

3:34 PM PT | 6:34 PM ET
Building prosperity and peace for all
What is your true value and how are you sharing it?
A lucky few weeks to recognize and share your value with others
Venus enters her home sign of Taurus until April 11. Here she’s comfy, cozy and capable in her full power. Venus, your connection to the resources (yes, money) and people to thrive in our world, appreciates everything luxurious, delicious and sumptuous. She’s the ability to curate, appreciate and be gracious to these pleasures that amplifies Venus’ power to charm and attract.
While traveling through Taurus, she meets up with Uranus on March 30, building up to surprise breakthroughs in your connections and resourcing!
For the next few weeks while Venus is in Taurus, appreciate your physical resources by savoring each sense. What lights up your touch, smell, sound, taste and aesthetics? Embody the pleasure of what surrounds you to amp up this Venusian energy.
In your Work, notice the value you create every day, the value you offer to those that co-create and hire you, and the value that is created from the investments you make in your body and your environment.
As you tune into your aligned values, remember to appreciate and express gratitude. This energetic amplification allows you to increase your power of financial and people attraction. Purely by appreciation and enjoyment of what you already have.
For Luminaries with Venus in Taurus natally, you are an example of value and self love. You want to go deep with what you really care about in your business, and it shows how you care for others and make what you believe in a reality. It’s hard for you to harness the shadows when you deeply understand how the natural order of things on Earth brings so much abundance and joy. It’s easy for you to value beauty and evoke its impacts by being patient with how it creates results. You’re very grounded in what you believe in and want to celebrate it in the most graceful way possible. People are drawn to you for how you add value and hone in on your own. When you’re creating a life you really believe in, you radiate rootedness, security, and pleasure harnessed in a constructive format. In your Work, remember you’re a person that can be a stabilizing force for so many when you honor yourself above all. You’re the kind of leader whose slow but steady approach to understanding your mission and your vision can make others also value patience.
Mercury square Mars
9:49 PM PT | 12:49 AM + 1 ET
Be patient and gain understanding
What is your intuition or higher self wanting you to know right now?
Today Mercury in Pisces (abstract thoughts) squares off with Mars in Gemini (scattered motivation), and you just can’t figure out which way is up! It’s all good if you take it for what it is — a fleeting opportunity to throw your ideas to the wind and go with the flow. In the midst of it all, if you can quiet your mind a bit, brilliance can shine through. For now, go make a mess — scatter some paint, sing in the shower, meditate in a noisy playground and see what comes up.

Quick and clear emotional thinking
What past experiences or emotions now have clearer meaning?
Mercury is at top speed now as it meets up with the Sun, joining forces in what is called a “Cazimi”. This Cazimi, like a New Moon phase between the Sun and Mercury, is a new beginning in their dance. With this meetup, we have reached yet another halfway point before the next Mercury Rx that reminds you to enjoy your clarity and quick thinking. Lots of old experiences and memories have recently come to light in a new way, and you now get to decide how you will integrate these learnings into your changemaking Work.
Within 24 hours, Mercury is traveling a whopping 4º a day and will dash into Aries!
Especially illuminating for Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)
Mercury Pisces conjunct Sun Pisces 26°

9:24 PM PT | 12:24 AM +1 ET
Think self-directed thoughts
What new ideas and thoughts will you affirm in your business?
A great few weeks to activate your ideas.
Mercury zips through the zodiac and cruises through quick acting Aries for only 2 weeks, now through April 3. While in Aries, Mercury, our thoughts, communications and ways we share our Work ideas can be vigorous, fast and spirited, especially since there may be so many ideals acquired in Pisces that you now want to take action on. Be aware that this momentum doesn’t tip the scale of balance to become impetuous or impulsive. That’s always the trick with Aries, as it’s such a great energy to take flight and take lead; and when we are communicating to others to follow our lead, our energy needs to be enthusiastic without being pushy. All those ideas you’ve had brewing now have the cosmic energy to initiate.
For Luminaries with Mercury in Aries natally, you are quick to think, act and speak out when you aren’t bogged down by anxiety. If you were on a game show you’d be the first to hit the buzzer with the winning answer. It can be hard for you to slow down and wait for the right time or place to speak up when you’re “on.” And oh gosh, Mercury Retrogrades can feel like a train hitting a wall for you because if you aren’t going fast, you don’t want to go at all. It’s important to cultivate patience and to triple check your thoughts.
Sometimes Aries Mercury can error on the anxious side, and second guess their every move or thought. If this is you, hone into your body to find the trust you need and stay present instead of always thinking in the future.
In your Work, you’re great on a brainstorming session as your ideas come quickly. And if you have a job where you are required to litigate, negotiate or think quickly on your toes, you are indispensable.
Week of March 19 – March 25
“A strong woman understands that the gifts such as logic, decisiveness, and strength are just as feminine as intuition and emotional connection. She values and uses all of her gifts.” – Nancy Rathburn
Happy Solar return to all the Aries luminaries! Right after your birth season begins, we also have a New Moon in Aries to help us with new beginnings.
Another jam-packed week as Pluto enters Aquarius, shifting signs for the first time in almost 20 years. This is a supercharged time for you to be a warrior in the way that resonates. Remember the community you’ve been building around you, even predating the time you stepped into your Work. What revolution do you want to start? What initiations have you felt are beginning?
Mars, the ruler of Aries, brings his fighting power with a watery flavor as he enters Cancer at the end of the week. Remember that boiling water can burn — temper your fighting power with an understanding that emotional resilience and commitment can make you an even more powerful leader. Don’t let any moodiness mislead you; you have tools in your control.
The cardinal sign of Cancer squares Aries, but these two signs in conjunction can remind you of the healing powers at play, when you take the duality of inspiration and nurturing.
March 20, 2023
Sun enters Aries (Equinox)
2:24 PM PT | 5:24 PM ET
Season of new beginnings
How can we balance me and us?
Happy Equinox everyone! This astronomical event is celebrated and symbolized all across the world. Equinox symbolizes the balance of light. Today, no matter where you are on the Earth, day equals night. Light equals dark. And on the horizon, the Sun rises and sets at the midpoint from its journey north and south.
Ancient societies across the globe saw this event and placed meaning on the solstice.
At Angkor Wat, Cambodia, a grand Hindu (now Buddhist) temple’s central tower is crowned with the Sun on the morning of the equinox.
At Chichen Itza, Mexico, a Mayan pyramid casts shadows of a serpent god Kukulkan at the precise moment of the equinox.
Across ancient Europe and the Mediterranean, people would create temples inside of structures or caves that would only receive light at sunrise on the Equinox. The ancients were so in tune with the cycles of the Earth through generations of observation.
Now, for us spiritual and cyclical change makers, it’s the beginning of the astrological year, the new, the start, the need to put ourselves first and initiate.
The Equinox is initiated in the Spring as the sun reaches 0º Aries on the Ecliptic. This Equinox has even more initiation magic with the moon meeting the Sun still at Aries 0º less than 24 hours sparking a most beautiful and powerful New Moon.
It’s so wonderful we get many new astrological starts. We can choose to start over again with each new breath. May your Equinox balance your needs, spark your initiative, and allow you to dive head first into the Aries “go-get-‘em” you need in your changemaking work.
March 21, 2023
New Moon Aries 0°
10:23 AM PT | 1:23 PM ET
Spark Your Trailblazing
To say this is an epic New Moon is an understatement! Our 3rd New Moon of the Year, the first of 2 Aries New Moons (the next one on April 19, is a rare hybrid eclipse). And smashed in between two thresholds of energy, the equinox that happened less than 24 hours earlier and 2 days before mighty Pluto moves into Aquarius, breaking a 20 year cycle.
The tremendous NEW energy is palpable. You are bound to be buzzing at this time. It feels like you are being asked to step through not one but 3 consecutive portals within a 72 hour period.
On top of these cosmic shifts, half of the major planets are partying in Aries with Sun, Moon, Mercury, Chiron and Jupiter all in this passionate fire sign.
With this much Cardinal Fire in the sky, we are all being asked how we can embody this Aries energy of taking leaps of faith and being exactly who you want without burning out.
To truly embody Aries is to be YOUR best, where you focus that competitive edge inward, and claim your prize. After all, you are the best at something, there is no one in the world that is you.
New Moons are times of initiation, intention and asking the Universe for what you want. And I want to acknowledge that it can be difficult to get clear on what you want. Society, culture, the media is really good at selling you what they want you to buy. It takes practice to clear out the noise of shoulds, expectations, to go after what YOU want.
With Aries, how do you want to be best or first?
What kind of initiative do you want to take?
To initiate is to lead. To lead is to step forward with courage. It doesn’t matter if you’re leading one person or a million. There are people looking to you to make the first move.
This New Moon is on your side to create a fresh intention around your leadership, identity, and initiative. You get to choose the very best version of your self identity, how you want people to see you, and the spark you want to ignite in the World.
- The New Moon sandwiched between Neptune and Mercury asks how can you integrate both your logical and spiritual mind to clarify your call to action?
- Chiron the wounded healer conjunct Jupiter in Aries asks how can you believe and be grateful for all your previous challenges were created for you. (And integrate this realization into your leadership?)
- New Moon squares off with Mars asks how will you transmute your fears, resentments, and anger into motivation, drive and physical vitality? (It’s almost like turning your fear into a big f-u to your fear.)
March 23, 2023
Pluto enters Aquarius
5:13 AM PT | 8:13 AM ET
Regenerate Your Revolution
Another juggernaut in the cosmos is to shift into the sign of Aquarius, the first time in 225 years. Yes, Pluto, the mighty dwarf planet leaves Capricorn where he’s spent the last 20 some years breaking down systems of oppression and now will test his might in Aquarius.
Let me say… to have both Saturn and Pluto change signs in one month is absolutely extraordinary.
Pluto’s process is a complete process of death and rebirth. A phoenix rising from the ashes. A caterpillar in a chrysalis that emerges as a brilliant butterfly. Pluto is the flames purifying the phoenix to make it magnificent. Pluto is the mystery that happens in the chrysalis that utterly transforms to make it fly. Now what exactly is happening in those flames? In that chrysalis?
Does the creature going through the transformation feel pain?
Does the creature resist the transformation not knowing the outcome?
Or does the creature trust in the process, trusting the empowerment it is to receive?
This is Pluto.
March 25, 2023
Mars enters Cancer
4:45 AM PT | 7:45 AM ET
Motivation feels moody
How can you initiate from a place of emotional security?
Yowzers!! We have fresh motivation! Mars has finally left Gemini after a 6 month stint where we got to rethink how we initiate and activate. Now through May 20, fires Mars dives into emo Cancer and it’s not thoughts that spark momentum but now our softer more emotional drives. Emotions may feel extra hot during this time so it’s really important to understand your anger, fears and resentments to know what you need to feel emotionally secure. Especially in your changemaking Work, you want to be making decisions based on emotional security instead of fear. If you find yourself paralyzed by fear, this is a great time to initiate understanding what it is that you need to feel emotionally secure. And if you don’t yet know OR you have old stories that may not be your own to work through, this would be a great season to get counseling or therapeutic help. You are not meant to go through this alone. This can be a powerful time where you tap into your authentic leadership and authentic drive. How empowered would you feel to be making decisions based on your true inner needs?
Week of March 26 – April 1
“The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who’s going to stop me.” – Ayn Rand

It’s safe to speak your vulnerabilities
How will you share and teach others how you’ve overcome a core wound? When you share your imperfect past, when you share all that you’ve learned to excel at despite the odds, you spark recognition in your people. Your people, those that you are meant to serve. Give voice to your most vulnerable hurts and show others that they too can overcome the same ordeal you’ve already mastered.

Get curious with your dreams
What ideals are now getting bigger in your Work?
A great day to share your vision with the wider world.
Mercury and Jupiter blend together for a few days leading up to and away from this exact meeting point. We are in the collective season of Trailblazing and there is hope and faith fueling your Work. Are you clear with this underlying super-consciousness? It takes effort and awareness to slow down and pay attention to what ideals are gaining momentum and from where these ideals come from. It may not seem so practical or pragmatic to spend time exploring these visions. Yet it is massively strategic to your larger dream and vision in your Work. It is massively important to your life’s work to connect the dots from your soul-centered super conscious to your day-to-day trailblazing in your Work.
Especially energizing for Fire Luminaries (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius).

Act + nourish
What practice of self care helps move the needle forward?
It’s time to take action on your intentions! The seeds you planted during the New Moon in Aries now require you to take action. Cancerian action is about security, nourishment and self care. So yes to naps to make money, being cozy at home for effectiveness, feelings for impact. Self care and holding space on the outside may not seem like productivity. But if these acts of nourishing replenish your ability to be more energized and effective, can you then see the value of that power nap!? Make space in your schedule for self care and home time so you can energetically, in alignment, act on your intentions.

What will you prioritize that will have lasting momentum in your business?
Mars, our motivation and drive is in flow with Saturn, our discipline and responsibility. Both in Water signs (Mars in Cancer and Saturn in Pisces) you want to feel into the flow and protect your emotional security at all costs. So how can you create commitment (Saturn) that will allow you to prioritize (Mars) – your self compassion, and emotional safety? After all, when you are certain of yourself on an emotional level, you take risks from faith that put you on your highest path and become unstoppable. So first, you protect and commit to your emotional and spiritual depth and health.

Unpredictable abundance breakthroughs
What shakeups in finances and relationships are revolutionizing your world?
For a few days leading up to and away from this meeting, Venus, your abundance and relationship energy and Uranus, your maverick energy meet up in the sky in Venus’s home sign of Taurus. You may get some surprises with your physical resources (yes, money!). Be careful to not judge things as good or bad, for it would be too soon to say, even if the immediate outcome is a financial hit. When Uranus is involved, its shocks are meant to be quantum leaps to get you onto your next evolution. So if a minor setback gets you to where you are supposed to be, that doesn’t sound too bad, does it?
Especially awakening for Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius).
