" Inner Grace Meditation" is about divine grace. Divine grace is not something you look for or try to make happen. You have the intention to close your eyes and start to withdraw from your environment and let the laws of gravity gracefully take you to the bliss that is deep down inside of you. Deep rest, deeper than deep sleep, allows stress to leave you. The gift of divine grace or divine judgment is an automatic by product of letting go and NOT CONCENTRATING so much. Simplicity.
Create a space in the thought process via sound “Mantra” and the gift of grace melts tensions away so you’re ready for the world.
And, when the world takes too much of you, you just go back to that quiet space between thoughts. The kind of space that is unbounded. Without any judgments. The space of divine grace that guides you in your life. A gift that you didn't consciously ask for, but it showed up in moments all on its own. Without trying and concentrating.”

March is a busy month with Saturn and Pluto moving into new signs and Daylight Savings. All planets will remain in direct motion including Mercury.
Pisces has been taking center stage since the new Moon in Pisces on February 20th, 2023. This dreamy and spiritual energy continues through March 19th. If you are Pisces or have other planets in Pisces, you may have felt very disconnected to all areas of your life and getting signals from other dimensions that are more heavenly.
Mercury moves into Pisces from March 1st till the 19th. If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Pisces, you are headed for significant changes in your life as the messenger Mercury knows how to be more sociable even thou Pisces can be a bit shy.
Virgo, the opposite sign of Pisces, gets activated with a full Moon in Virgo on March 7th. This full Moon is at 16 degrees (7:40AM EST). If you have the Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Virgo you are completing projects by the deadline of the 7th.
With 2 T-Squares involved in this full Moon chart, tensions are high for those with Pisces, Virgo, Aries, and Gemini energies. These signs are ready to complete an important project at work or relationship issues. They start a new fresh approach to their work and how they relate to others on this full Moon in Virgo.
Messages from above have been dominating the mutable signs of Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius since the new Moon on February 20th but now the full Moon on March 7th wants these signs to bring whatever dreams they are having onto this planet in a practical way.
This is because Saturn will move into the sign of Pisces on March 7th, the same day as the full Moon, and those with Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Pisces have an opportunity to build (Saturn) the kind of life they want from the dreams they have.
Pisces is the dreamer of the Zodiac and some powerful Pisces have been able to master the physical world. Celebrities like Rihanna, George Harrison, Lupita Nyong’o, Bon Jovi, James Taylor, Camila Cabello, Sharon Stone, Carrie Underwood, Chuck Norris, Liza Minelli, Quincy Jones and Bruce Willis are some of the Pisces that made their dreams come true.
Because Saturn in Pisces is so opposite in many ways that Pisces operates, it helps Pisces to establish themselves through discipline and structure (Saturn) to build what they have been dreaming of (Pisces) into a reality over the next 2 and a half years.
Saturn will turn retrograde by the middle of June but it will not move back into Aquarius. It will be at zero degrees of Pisces by October 2023 when it stations direct, so the mutable signs, especially Pisces, will be able to build a new life from March till the beginning of November of 2023 that allows them to finally get it right.
Letting go of old habits (Saturn) that don’t serve them anymore and moving on from past karma they feel guilty about will help them let go of old things they have been carrying around on their back for too long. Addictive behaviors that only brought them pain and suffering.
Spiritual efforts of mediation, chanting and prayer from the past allows the mutable signs to zoom forward now and good karma credits are in store. Blessings to all the mutable signs during Saturn’s movement through Pisces.
Daylight saving starts at 2AM, early on Sunday morning March 12th. It’s time to spring forward and let the daylight last longer. Let’s hope March weather remains as warm as it has since the winter season started.
Rihanna, the famous singer, will perform the song “Lift me Up”, the score for the movie “Marvel Studios’ Black Panther” at the Oscar’s on March 12th.
Rihanna has a Venus/Moon conjunction in Aries with Aries rising from 11 to 15 degrees. Jupiter will be at 14 degrees sandwiched in between. She could win an Oscar for this song. Jupiter is the planet of good fortune and expansion.
Venus will move into the sign of Taurus on March 16th and this gives those with Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Taurus opportunities to attract abundance till April 11th. Venus feels comfortable in Taurus as it rules both Taurus and Libra.
Mercury moves into Aries on March 19 giving those born with Sun, Moon, rising and planets in Aries extra energy to accomplish anything they have their mind on.
The Sun moves into Aries on March 20th, and we start the Spring Equinox at 5:24PM EDT. Happy Birthday to Aries. Happy Spring 2023.
Then, on March 21st we have a new Moon in Aries at zero degrees. This intense buildup of energy in the sign of Aries starts new beginnings for those born under this courageous sign.
Aries is adventurous and this new intense bundle of energies needs practical expression so if you have Aries energies in your chart, you will need physical exercise to balance out an abundance of energy.
Aries opposite sign is Libra. There is a shift in the way these two signs relate to themselves (Aries) and others (Libra).
Relationships will be a big topic for these two signs. What are my needs and how can I integrate those needs with my partner is the topic at hand. Since it’s a new Moon, new relationships can start for both signs if they are not in a relationship.
A bit more stressful for the other cardinal signs of Capricorn and Cancer. Relationship issues may come up for these two signs that need healing.
Pluto will move into the sign of Aquarius and a New Age is about to start. Remember all the Aries energy I just mentioned, Pluto wants to transform and renovate and Aries wants to fight a war.
Therefore, the new Moon in Aries could be a time when the war between Russia and Ukraine becomes very intense. This intense energy runs from March 21st through the end of 2023 as a new Moon solar eclipse on April 20, 2023, in Aries at 29 degrees, fueling an intense warrior spirit that started on March 21st.
Pluto in Aquarius will be short lived in 2023 from March 24th till June 11th when Pluto will move back into Capricorn and finish up a journey through Capricorn it started in 2008.
Governments around the world have wanted to take subtle (Pluto) control over people’s lives but Pluto in Aquarius is about self-empowerment so we will see people moving away from organized political ideologies of the past.
The last time Pluto was in Aquarius was between 1777-1799. Pluto averages around 248 years to travel through all 12 signs and return to itself. U.S.A. has been having its Pluto return that started February 20, 2022.
As Pluto moves back in retrograde motion from June 2nd till October 11, 2023, it will station direct at 27 degrees and make its last Pluto return to U.S.A’s chart in the second house of money. This could be the last leg of the war in Ukraine.
Aquarius is a sign that is more group oriented. Working with others brings more new and creative energies to life. When Pluto was in Aquarius from 1777-1799, we had a period when we witnessed the American Revolutionary War and saw the creating of the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights.
This new period of Pluto in Aquarius, which starts between March 24th till the middle of June 2023, kicks in fully in 2024, marks a period of renewed vision in technological inventions as well as a new shift in government control over others.
U.F.O.’s, astrology, humanity coming together in large numbers to help the world, a new approach to education, healthcare, romance, religion, spirituality, politics, and any area of life that is hanging onto old ways of doing things as Pluto wants to renovate and transform life to a higher level of expression.
We must pray for the world as the beginning years of Pluto moving into Aquarius from March of 2023 to February of 2026, will be a testing period. Adjustments need to be made that may be uncomfortable for some in order to grow and integrate new and innovative ways of life.

Mars moves into the sign of Cancer on March 25th after being in the sign of Gemini since August 20, 2023. That’s a long time for Gemini’s to feel stressed out.
Mars in Cancer helps to mellow life out. If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Cancer, you will hover around your family more and your home from March 25th till May 21st, 2023.
Mars adds some extra energy to those who have Cancer influence in their natal charts.
Mars is in its fall in Cancer so if you have any planets or Cancer rising, don’t let people walk all over you. You will feel more emotional if that’s possible and choices will be colored more by your emotional feelings. Try to stay centered via a spiritual practice and love yourself for all of the wonderful things you are.
March is an important month for so many signs but especially for Pisces, Virgo, Aries, Cancer, and Aquarius. Make the best of what the universe has to offer.
