We will receive a double benefit this month.

A grand trine will bring solid progress in many areas. Two eclipses will weaken resistance and dissolve obstacles, ensuring more vigorous progress in future. Many will be able to finally leave the past behind and move into the next phase.

The eclipses will deal decisive setbacks to things that have been faltering or gradually failing. Many outmoded programs and policies, for example, will come up for phase out. The grand trine will soften the blow for all concerned, but there will be no disguising the setback and no reversing it.

The Bush administration and its Congressional allies have so far managed to stave off collapse on domestic and foreign issues, including and especially Iraq. But I believe March’s events will shift the tone of the Iraq debate, and the national political debate generally, decisively and irresistibly against Bush.

Other charts confirm this view. The solar eclipse in early March will hit Bush's chart especially hard. Also, the charts for the GOP are discouraging. They suggest a party lacking in true self-confidence and in disarray, deeply divided by internal rancor, continuing to lose its footing on the national stage.

The charts support those who suggest that the GOP is well on the way to becoming a regional party, popular primarily in traditionally red states.

A Good Month for the US, Paradoxically

March's eclipses, like all the eclipses of the last year or so, will be angular in the US chart. However, the US charts for both eclipses contain very strong grand trines. So despite the political changes likely to be wrought by these eclipses, March will likely be a good month for the country.

Many other important changes that have been in the works for a long time will come to fruition in March. However, eclipses being eclipses, there will be crises caused primarily by long-standing problems that are unexpectedly brought to light, often as the result of 'accidents.'

On the micro-level, we can expect many health, financial or legal issues to reach some kind of resolution.

Both eclipses are along the Pisces/Virgo axis, angular to a lot of the important, long standing planetary positions. So, the events of March 2007 are likely to mark an important turning point for all of us.

Cosmic Perspective

In recent decades, astrologers have been studying the heavenly bodies beyond the orbit of Neptune.

These objects, like Juno, Pholus, Pallas, Ixion and Eris, govern the ideas embedded in the world views shared by groups, large and small, ethnic, religious, national and otherwise.

The message of these relatively recently discovered heavenly bodies appears to be: our world views must be purged and made to conform to the laws of reason, justice and morality and simple decency.

The key to solving the profound troubles of the Iraqi people lies in rehabilitating the world views of Iraq's people.

Increasingly, the solution to the world's problems will involve studying and rebuilding the deeply, often unconsciously held world views that bind us together into and guide our actions as groups.

Sign by Sign Astrology Forecast For March 2007

General Comments ~
The planets are weaning us from past habits, gently but quickly. Some real blessings will befall many of us early in March or we will begin some project destined to succeed beyond our hopes and expectations. But the planets will also give us a bit of a nudge. They will remove some of the options from the table and bring certain possibilities closer to manifestation. We might have preferred the disappearing options and the realistic ones might seem a new and daunting. However, by the end of March, we will all be standing on more solid ground with more realistic ideas about what the future holds.

Sign by Sign ARIES ~ We all need a good month once in awhile and March looks surprisingly positive for Aries. The good news has everything to do with children, romance, education, travel and creative projects. Something big and good and lasting will come together. But you need to make financial allowances for future changes. Good things are happening, but financial obligations loom. Expect sudden shifts in your own attitudes as old, outdated ideas fall away. Long pending changes will finally kick in at work. You might need work/lifestyle changes to protect your health.

TAURUS ~ The planets empower you in March and you will achieve a lot. However, much of what you achieve will be blocked from easy view by complicated developments. You might be distracted from your own achievements by changes in basic finances: home, investments and long-term savings. Things are fluid and they are confusing. But events are leading to a more solid and lasting base of operations for you. Some overdue and very constructive soul-searching will lead to helpful adjustments. Much of what happens could catch you very much by surprise.

GEMINI ~ The playful, romantic, idealistic side of your life is receiving strong, positive stimulus. Something substantial and lasting will come about to delight and sustain you through the rigors of real life. Meanwhile, the gears of change are spinning, presenting new challenges and removing lifestyle options that were probably dead ends anyway. Pick the strongest financial seedling and work diligently to make it flourish. Partners and higher ups are as demanding as ever, but they are feeling much more generous. Big changes at the top are likely in coming months.

CANCER ~ Sudden and dramatic changes are unfolding now. These will strongly and positively affect your existing financial arrangements. But new attitudes, new ideals, new personal goals will pull you irresistibly in a different direction. You will need to build a foundation for these new activities without risking your present job, which is probably becoming less interesting to you than these developing opportunities. You’ll probably have to go forward no matter what. If you tend carefully to long-term financial matters and honor existing job responsibilities, everything will take care of itself.

LEO ~ You deserve the love and good fortune coming. Good luck flows from involvement with the young, from creative projects and travel and educational pursuits. Save part of any windfall or financial increase, though. Your disposable income is hostage to changes going on in almost every department of your life. Expect a lot of sudden, irreversible and ultimately beneficial financial ‘adjustments’ in the months ahead. People who think they run your life continue to make many and varied demands on your time. Lighten your load. Shed unreasonable and unfair burdens.

VIRGO ~ The planets are about to ignite a slow motion charge near the foundations of your existence. It will shake loose a lot of unnecessary and burdensome baggage. Liberating changes will ripple slowly but steadily through your existence over the next few months. You will eventually be able to present a new, more serviceable and effective identity to everyone in your life. Let your own innermost concerns drive decisions. You probably can’t explain your reasoning to others, but it is sound. Continuing financial constraints will require that you budget conservatively.

LIBRA ~ The planets are stimulating those parts of your chart related to your most concrete and material interactions with the world--where you find companionship, creative and romantic opportunities and paying jobs. Dead weight, old baggage, roadblocks … many of these things will be removed over the coming months. A clear, workable way forward will emerge. The key to finally stabilizing your situation is the accumulation of secure long-term assets. In all that is happening, emphasize the things that lead most directly and reliably to the accumulation of appreciable capital assets.

SCORPIO ~ You will soon be able to reset the balance between your personal needs and family needs. Family relationships have grown overly complicated and maybe one-sided. Until now, it really hasn’t been possible to simplify things, to make meaningful, helpful choices. The planets are about to help you sort things out. Some cherished but unrealistic options will be blocked. Realistic options will remain. New pathways might open up or longstanding options will emerge as more attractive. Alternative, innovative ideas and methods will help. You are due for a financial boost.

SAGITTARIUS ~ You are inspired and succeeding on many levels that are important to you. However, you could become overwhelmed by your involvement in peripheral events and other people’s lives. You approve of much that is happening. But you still have serious concerns that keep you from just bowing out. It is best to start focusing on moral and ethical fine points. The planets suggest that issues of balance and fair play are the real causes behind lingering tensions and concerns. Many of the problems will start sorting themselves out soon.

CAPRICORN ~ The efforts of other people have been stalled and blocked, creating problems and delays for you. The planets are going to do Capricorn some favors by clearing up the issues in those other people’s lives so Capricorns can make progress with their own affairs. Expect progress soon. Efforts to stabilize your long-term saving and investment arrangements will soon begin to work. Prospects are good that you will arrive at a plan that provides what you need for the future and gives you needed peace of mind in the present.

AQUARIUS ~ There will be adjustments in your financial situation that bring income and work levels into line with present reality. Some of these adjustments will be sudden and unexpected. Many will be long overdue. They will put you in better sync with current economic trends and better able to plan for the future. Something very good will manifest in social and interpersonal areas. Just about your whole social network is due for an upgrade. Your involvement in the community will be significantly enhanced. Newfound friends will be loyal and lasting.

PISCES ~ The planets are firmly but gently blocking certain work or professional pathways. If you have been considering these avenues, you will need to go back to the drawing board. However, significant and lasting improvements in your work life and income are presently manifesting. The planets are also implementing sweeping changes in your psyche. You will soon be able to express important facets of your personality that might have been obscured or blocked in the past. This will enable you to interact with the world in new and surprising ways.
