March continues and expands upon the central theme of February: the need to overcome complacency and take full responsibility for our lives, refusing to allow the future to be shaped by self-pity, stubborn resistance to change or fearful avoidance of living life to its fullest.
Jupiter stations retrograde in the 24th degree of Virgo at 3:30 a.m. UT on 8th January. Conjunct the Moon’s North Node as it does so, it reminds us that only by realising our true nature amidst all of life’s experiences can we honour the gift and responsibility of awakening.
As you may know, right now five bright planets are lined up in the sky for the first time since 2005. In their actual order based on distance from the sun, these bright planets -- Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus and Mercury -- can be seen arranged together in a line, from Earth.

12/14 ~ Sun (core-self) ~square~ Jupiter (truth): This is a powerful energy. With that comes the necessity of discernment - it provokes you to get lots of things accomplished and that's a good thing, however, beware of taking on more than you can actually handle.

So, here we are approaching the end of another year. If you’re anything like me you’ll be wondering where on earth it went?! December begins, fittingly perhaps, with reflection and blasts from the past, reminding us that we don’t leave our former selves behind as we change and grow.
11/29 ~ Sun (core-identity) ~conjunct~ Saturn (responsibility): This energy gives you a strong dose of purpose & direction, but also reminds you that those big dreams require a solid foundation in order to flourish.
