This the last week of the dying astrological year, before next week’s Aries Equinox New Moon, Pluto entering Aquarius for the first time since 1797 and warrior Mars finally leaving Gemini after an unprecedented 7 months of disruption.
Mars is not going to go quietly. The 3rd and final clash between the red planet – action-and Neptune-surrender-on March 14th is intensified by Sun/Mercury conjunct Neptune and Mars opposing the karmic Galactic Centre.
It will feel as if you’re driving through a thick invisible fog, where nothing is at as it seems. Don’t be surprised if your energy ebbs and flows between confusion, uncertainty and exhaustion and the overwhelming urge to do something, anything.
In the outer world, many will be sinking deeper into passivity and denial; others will be warmongering.
Knowing that everything will change next week, avoid taking any significant actions since logistics and facts are not reliable
Instead, follow your interior angel’s craving for simplicity, for ease, for the space and emptiness to listen to your soul’s inklings.
There is always a higher path or a lower path. A wizard path or a muggle path. Choose wisely.

Chandra Symbol Mars GEMINI 26:
A cave with carved walls. It is an ancient temple.
“A constant reminder of what exists in other time frames, but is missing from the now. You are secretly living in futures and pasts to an extraordinary extent. What is in there speaks eloquently. The world voices of Now fall on deaf ears. Distracted, elsewhere, elusive, remote. Inhabiting the inner mind and lost to the outer mind. You’re in a poised verge where what ultimately and essentially makes sense is the reverse mirror image of what everybody says and thinks. The minority of one, keeping the balance intact” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
Aries Weekly Forecast: March 12 -19, 2023
With the Sun still in the sign behind yours, your solar batteries may be low. Take heart-you only have to wait until March 21st for the Aries Equinox and a stunning Aries New Moon to feel recharged and ready for your personal New Year. Meanwhile, cut yourself some slack this week. On March 12th, Jupiter meets Chiron in your sign and an old wound could be re-opened, needing some attention and healing. On the 14th, your own planet Mars is at odds with slippery Neptune in your hidden 12th House. Double check all your posts, texts etc before sending them and tighten your cybersecurity.
Slow right down.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: March 12 -19, 2023
It’s a week for conserving your energy, tying up loose ends and protecting your cyber security. Mars has been turning the taps on and off in your income stream for an unheard of 7 months and is finally out of his retrograde shadow, ready to change signs next week. That’s the good news, but don’t rush into make any big spending commitments just yet, as some important information is hidden by slippery Neptune’s fog. Luckily, your personal planet Venus returns to Taurus on March 16th increasing your attraction quotient. Make the most of it, as people will be much more receptive to you than usual for the next three weeks.
Inspire yourself with an artist’s date.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: March 12 -19, 2023
Mars has spent an entire 7 months crossing and re-crossing Gemini, causing disruption to your best laid plans. This week, he finally exits his retrograde shadow ahead of moving into Cancer on March 25th. Just as it seems safe to move forward, slippery Neptune is creating another round of confusion and communication glitches. Just be patient, as Saturn is newly arrived at the pinnacle of your chart, ready to deliver tangible results from all your efforts over the last few years. Start thinking about which dreams are dead in the water and where to invest more of your time and energy.
Tread carefully-everyone is extra sensitive this week.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: March 12 -19, 2023
So much is changing behind the scenes. Saturn is newly arrived in compatible Water sign Pisces-ideal for planning an interesting new project involving study, travel or teaching in any combination. This is perfect timing, as action planet Mars has been stuck in the sign behind yours for seven long months and this week finally leaves his retrograde shadow. On March 25th, your momentum will return when Mars enters Cancer after a 2 years absence, so remain patient until then. With slippery Neptune creating confusion and misinformation everywhere you look, just hold fire.
Don’t take anything personally this week.
Leo Weekly Forecast: March 12 -19, 2023
With Lord of Time and Karma newly arrived in your deep 8th House, some serious issues need airing. These will involve close partners, joint finances, tax or inheritance. In the next two and a half years, circumstances will nudge you to think about your legacy and what that means for how you are currently prioritising your time and efforts. This week, as the Sun merges with otherworldly Neptune in Pisces, take a step back from your agenda and do something restorative and healing. Walk by water, listen to uplifting music, talk to a close friend.
Pay close attention to your night time dreams.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: March 12 -19, 2023
For the last 7 months, Mars travelling back and forth across the top of your chart has brought mixed blessings. Hopefully, you’ve boosted your career or business by focussing on your priorities. This week, the red planet finally leaves his retrograde shadow and on March 25th will move into your angle of alliances. Before that, slippery Neptune is in the mix. Take off your rose-tinted lenses and check your cyber security and your communication platforms. On March 16th, Venus lights up fellow practical Earth sign Taurus, igniting a desire to teach, travel or study.
Delays or glitches are only temporary.
Libra Weekly Forecast: March 12 -19, 2023
You’ll definitely notice the cross-currents this week, as communication confusion is rife, meaning glitches, delays and disinformation everywhere you look. Don’t take it personally-it’s the last of three Mars/Neptune standoffs before the action planet crosses the top of your chart to give your career a welcome boost from March 25th. Meanwhile, your own planet Venus moves into Taurus, smoothing your path and giving you a nudge to put your finances on to a more solid footing.
Knowing that your energy and motivation will return from March 21st at the Aries Equinox, this week cut yourself some slack.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: March 12 -19, 2023
As an intuitive Water sign, you’ll need to call on all your powers this week in order to sidestep the neediness of overly sensitive people. Knowing that it’s due to slippery Neptune at odds with Mars, refuse to engage with their complaints and demands and take time out to be on your own. If you can, go on an artist’s date and let your inspiration flow. Happily, on March 16th, Venus lights up your closest partnerships, rekindling close bonds and reminding you of how loved you are. From March 21st, life is going to get busy again, so recharge your batteries while you can.
Feed your soul with art, music, literature…….
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: March 12 -19, 2023
As a Jupiter ruled sign, you always need to have a purpose, direction and target to aim your arrows of inspiration towards. This week‘s Neptunian cocktail of confusion, lack of clarity and general fogginess is not at all to your liking. It helps to step back to understand the big picture. Knowing that this is temporary, that only last week Lord of Karma Saturn changed signs and next week change agent Pluto follows, the discomfort of standing on some sort of threshold starts to make sense. Instead of doing something-anything-to try to change your circumstances, just sit with the unsettled chaotic feelings.
You’re at a major turning point-start putting down deeper roots of belonging.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: March 12 -19, 2023
Just as your personal planet Saturn has changed signs, upgrading your 3rd House of communication until 2026, a weird sort of fog descends. All your usual signposts disappear. As a practical Earth sign, this could be very frustrating but knowing that the mist will clear from March 21st, just be patient. From March 16th, Venus in your 5th House nudges you to do more of what you love, with those you love and less of what you think you have to do. Pick up a passion or pastime you used to enjoy and see if it still has juice.
Less striving, more play.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: March 12 -19, 2023
If you’re feeling a bit lost, unanchored or unsettled, know that you are in the midst of some of the most profound change of your lifetime. Last week your own planet Saturn left Aquarius for Pisces, on March 23 Pluto will begin to radically transform your sign until 2043. Growth is inevitable and your new revolutionary spirit to be welcomed. This week, press the pause button, reconnect with yourself and notice what you’re feeling. Is it anticipation or fear? excitement or apprehension? or maybe a cocktail of both.
There is nothing for you to do, practise or prepare-change will arrive in its own time.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: March 12 -19, 2023
Last week planet of reality Saturn returned to Pisces in what turns out to be helpful timing. As slippery Neptune and Mars create a thick fog of disinformation on March 14th, you of all the signs will know better than to believe what is palpably not true and refuse to swallow poison. Sometimes your rose -tinted lenses blind you to what’s really going on, but not this time. Saturn is going to be your super power for the next 26 months, so welcome his reality checks. On the same day the Sun and Mercury merge with your own planet Neptune, releasing a wellspring of inspiration and insights.
Capture them before they disappear-they are pure gold.
