March greetings, and happy solar return wishes to all Pisces and early Aries folks! Below are your intuitive tarot readings coupled with insightful astro snapshots by Richard, per sign, for this month. We will also pull a card for the collective, which you can use in conjunction with your personal tarot card to create a robust narrative around what is calling your attention during this monthly cycle.
To get the most out of these Horoscopes, please read them based off of your Ascendant/ Rising sign, as these are the signs that are the basis of our monthly breakdowns. Your Ascendant sign is the sign of the Zodiac which was rising on the eastern horizon at the time, date & location of our birth, and it provides us with a much more individualized view of our personal astrology. If you do not yet know your Rising Sign, feel free to find it here: Chart Drawing, Ascendant. All you will need is the closest possible time, date & location of your birth. For those not able to find an accurate Rising Sign, you can secondarily read these horoscopes by your Sun sign and thirdly by your Moon sign.
Stay tuned for the Celestial Insights blog to see what the stars have to say, along with lunar magick offerings!
KEY TRANSITS FOR MARCH 2022
MARCH PLANETARY POSITIONS
Tarot Card: 10 of PentaclesYour March card highlights the combination of both ending and starting a new cycle in the material realm around security: ending/starting a new job, financial plan or ways of making money, or health routine/health regimen. This card indicates abundance and culmination of resources, likely with the help of family or even doing ancestor work for insight. Oftentimes in my readings, this card can indicate inheritance or some sort of familial collection of useful resources getting dispersed, so whether it’s money or wisdom, there is some family of origin/chosen family abundance available to you or coming in. If you are at the helm of abundance, this indicates you being able to truly embody and live in the abundance you created with ease. By acknowledging your privilege and security, sharing that abundance from your personal successes will connect you to others in order to create stability and comfort for all. Your hard work is not in vain! Enjoy and share it for long term joy. Astro Snapshot
March starts off with a Pisces New Moon right on top of Jupiter in your 12th house, the area of the chart pertaining to anything unseen, the subconscious mind and releasing. You may find this month that themes around letting go and making space in your life come up quite a bit. This is because Mars, your ruling planet, forms a strong conjunction to Pluto at the end of Capricorn, calling on the releasing of the old and emboldening you to step away from anything in your life that might be keeping you chained to past hurts or dated versions of yourself. Pluto does away with the old and makes space for the new, and as your ruling planet joins forces with Pluto, a bold energy of release will be present in your life. Later in the month, Mercury enters your 12th house and follows the Sun as they make their way to your first house, helping to form a clear vision of the future, bringing about a new beginning and to declare a new version of yourself that could only have come out of letting go of something from the past. This month's Virgo Full Moon on the 18th will help with problem solving if it is needed, but also will help embolden you to see this month's spiritual and emotional processes out to completion.
Tarot Card: High Priestess
Tarot Card: High Priestess Taurus also got this card, and for you Leo friends, this feels like you got something moving last month or recently—a successful venture, project, or similar, and now that you used your strength, creativity, and power of your Divine Masculine solar self, you are asked to equally give energy to your inner Divine Feminine self. This may be as simple as going with your gut and following your intuition around certain situations where you are getting “pings” even if they may not make logical sense… Follow the pings! Similarly, the balance of dark and light for the purpose of understanding your self or a situation more accurately may be the work: move toward your shadow, move into the liminal space… What are your dreams, visions, synchronicities telling you? Allow your inner High Priestess to communicate with you. You can engage her by having more alone time, being in stillness more (even if it’s just taking a longer shower and letting the water run on your face), and have faith that regardless of what others may be telling you, you are the expert of your orbit. For some, gossip is resonant this month, and as a card about secrets, this is a message affirming anything related to secrets that your gut is telling you.
Tarot Card: The Sun (jumper: Hanged Man) Wow, Virgos, you all are in the thick of major cycles! Last month, you were called on to take chances, be more curious and childlike and a little less adult so you can raise your frequency and get out of some stuck or sad energies. This month, you are asked to keep engaging that childlike creative curiosity along with turning toward your inner child for more healing work. This card is about illuminating your Self, being seen, and experiencing success. If some of you are seeking confirmation about a particular goal, this card indicates success in March, but perhaps with a caveat. This may be slightly changing plans, changing perspective a bit, or sacrificing something in order to complete the successful transaction awaiting you. For others going through more inner personal shifts, this part of the cycle really does feel like doing inner child work will help shift your very exhausted motherly perspective into a space of seeing things through a child’s eyes. This shift may help bring clarity to a certain interpersonal situation, whether it is at home, work, or in a friendship, or simply provide you comfort through understanding. If it feels mental health related, I would suggest checking out one of my favorite therapeutic modalities: Internal Family Systems or “parts work” by Richard Schwartz. If you keep having the same kind of person/situation show up over and over in your life, there is a lesson you have not quite completed… IFS sheds light on your defensive parts born in childhood that have good intentions, but that you may now have outgrown. They are taking power away from your Self and affecting your well-being. Join the Hanged Man on the tree and look at things from your inner child’s perspective. There is medicine there. Use this month’s full moon in your sign to get into this work!
This month can be a little intense for you, but it will be very useful. You may find this month that a strong focus on your past comes up as your 4th house, the house of past and history, sees Mars and Venus moving in. Saturn has already been here, and when these three join forces, you will be given a glimpse into the past. This will relate to a particular place in your life that you might be feeling stuck, or struggling to see beyond what is going on right now. Know that this month’s introspection serves you for the future as when we enter the end of this month, you will have a much clearer vision of what is to come. Saturn in your 4th house works to respect the integrity of where you have come from in order to best align you with where you seek to go, so any frustration about feeling stuck or things in your life not moving quicker is most likely serving to insure a much more stable and successful outcome. You may also have an influx of creative energy at the same, as well as shifting around of the social circles around you.
Tarot Card: The Hanged Man Sag folks, you are still traversing the land of slowed time and pauses… Aquarius also got this card, so you may be dealing with Aquarius folks or have Aquarius significance in your chart. This makes me think timing is everything with certain endeavors, and after receiving the guidance of Temperance and walking the Middle Path to find balance last month, March’s energy is built around pausing and shifting your viewpoint to seek new perspectives.This will help you to either get comprehensive information needed or to connect better with someone by understanding things from their vantage point. The Hanged Man’s goal is wisdom, not folly, so patience is still needed, while actively flipping the script for fresh insight and perhaps even sacrificing something in order to grow. For some seeking a sign/message about a certain goal, this card is asking you to sit a bit longer in the indecision energy; again, timing is everything. It’s a card of less action and more contemplation. Trust these major arcana cards that are showing up for you… Trust timing and learn from expanding your perception. It will make sense soon.
This month starts off with a new moon right on top of Jupiter, your ruling planet, in the 4th house. The 4th house deals with the ways that we tend to ourselves, the ways that we nurture our core needs and find a sense of wellbeing. This house serves as the source that we pull resources and inner strength from. With this new moon being on top of Jupiter, you may find this month that there is a spiritual calling inward. This may be a calling to replenish your resources and tend to yourself as the end of this month and the next brings major advancements. Jupiters energy of truth and wisdom will be activated, so this month calls for you to seek out inner wisdom and to listen to your inner guidance. You may also see unexpected information from people from your past which might try to reopen something from before. Use a lot of reason and self-discipline with what you decide to do to make sure that past cycles are not repeated but to also direct any desire to re-open the past, towards a much more evolved outcome.
CAPRICORN Tarot Card: King of Wands
This month sees the moving out of Mars and Venus from your 12th house, the house of endings, into your 1st, the place of new beginnings. Before these two planets move into your 1st, they must pass over Pluto in the 12th! In summary, it's time to say goodbye and let go. You may have had some situations over the last month or two that have been calling into question why you might still be holding onto something. As these two planets move over Pluto, the energy of transformation can be accessed and can really aid you in making a lasting change for yourself. This is also major materialization energy, so it's a great time to get into materializing some of your ideas, even if it's in the smallest of ways. Your 2nd and 8th house have lunations this month, so a lot of stuff can materialize around worklife, resources, money and the ways that utilize them. Be careful to not be too hard or extreme with yourself this month, as Mars conjunct Pluto in your 12th can turn up the inner critic. Some of this may be productive, but in excess it can become something that can set you back.

Happy new year, friends! We have collectively entered the energy of 2023, a “7” year in numerology… Sevens are spiritual numbers that offer opportunity to reflect, engage philosophy and spiritual inquiry for personal growth, thoughtful analyzation in all matters, and psychological integration and wholeness. Along with this theme of reflection is that we start the year in a handful of retrograde planetary energy. Mercury (communication, thinking, writing) is in retrograde until the 18th, Mars (action, desire, passion, motivation) until the 12th, and Uranus (technology, major shifts, disruptions, sacred challenges, transformation) until the 22nd...

Happy December, JSS fam! We have entered the final month of the year, eclipse season has ended, and we are soaring in the free and adventurous energy of Sagittarius throughout most of this month... The full moon on the 7th falls in Gemini and will be conjunct Mars… I always like to focus on gratitude and forgiveness for the final full moons of the year (hello, alliteration!). Forgiveness unburdens us and promotes healing through release, and gratitude expands abundance. This lunation highlights curiosity around who or what we can release to free up mental real estate those outgrown energies were occupying. The Mars conjunction coupled with those intentions and actions can assist us in calling back our power and stepping into confident and passionate warrior mode after unburdening ourselves to prep for the coming year.
