MARCH ASTROLOGICAL UPDATE

by Marci McCaffery

Astrologer Marci McCaffery

Key phrase:
I BELIEVE

PISCES (February 20-March 20) marks the twelfth and final sign in our journey through the zodiac. An emphasis on greater unity-consciousness, heightened intuition, and spiritual awareness are highlighted. This sign is the most sensitive of all the twelve signs and is noted for its depth of feeling, compassionate nature, and gentle sweetness. Many natives of this sign are born with strong creative, artistic and musical talent.
March begins with Mercury’s communication oriented transit as it makes a temporary shift from Pisces, into bold, decisive Aries, on March 2th.  It then makes a reverse turn backwards to shift into the second of its tri-annual retrograde journeys on the 12th. This is further complicated by another shift as Mercury returns back into the sign of Pisces on the 23rd.  This is not an ideal time to sign important documents or initiate new projects. It represents a time for finishing up the old. We are asked to trust our inner guidance as we ride these perplexing and contradictory energies. It is best to act on any new impulses after Mercury goes direct, on April 4th.
The sign of Pisces symbolized by two fish poised in opposite directions. One swims toward the realm of the soul, where spiritual inclinations and self-sacrifice are channeled towards a path of service to others. The other swims towards a world of personality where idealistic urges, strong fantasies and the need to retreat from the harsh realities of the world are underscored by substance abuse and addictions.  It’s interesting to note that Michael Jackson had a Pisces Moon and Whitney Houston had a Pisces rising sign with Neptune as her chart ruler.  Both met the downfall of their illustrious careers through the use of drugs.

Pisces by Josephine Wall

On March 5th, passionate Venus transits out of high energy Aries into practical Taurus for the next four weeks. We are encouraged to slow down, live in the moment, and be content with the simple pleasures of life.  As an added boost, expansive, optimistic Jupiter is transiting Taurus until June 11th, offering a plethora of earthly delights. Wherever Taurus falls in your chart will reveal how this beneficial energy plays out for you, personally.
The Virgo Full Moon on March 8th at 18 degrees Virgo implies that we take time to heal ourselves body, mind and spirit through structured routine.  Since the Full Moon offers us a time for completions, this is a good time to pay attention to detail, schedule appointments, organize, plan, and finish up old projects and tasks that have plagued us for a while.
The Spring Equinox (Aries New Moon) on the 22nd at 2 degree Aries represents the movement of the Sun, as it crosses the true celestial equator. This symbolizes a time when the day and night are balanced. This Equinox is connected with the Sun-Uranus-and Mercury Retrograde configuration indicating the potential for jarring and erratic behavior. We are reminded to act with clear intention, courage, strength and boldness after April 14th when Mars (the spiritual warrior) goes direct as we initiate new beginnings and venture forth into the unknown.

Through discussion, questions and answers, and WORKING THE ENERGY through some powerful meditations/exercises, Debra will help you to release your mental/emotional/energetic barriers and even pain that may be keeping you from embarking on or being as successful, joyful and creative as you’d like to be within the profession of your dreams.
For those of you who aren’t interested in spirituality as a profession, but are interested in hearing about the inner world of those who you may go to for help, or perhaps those who you are related to, you’ll find this evening to be a fascinating window into a realm most of the outside world is not aware of.

ABUNDANCE IS MINE

by Norma Mitchell

Do you feel somehow empty – that something is missing?

Are you fearful you’ll never get what you really want?

Do you give yet not receive?

Are you under-appreciated or unsatisfied with your job?

Do you have the money you want?

When we think of abundance, many of us tend to think about our material world abundance first. Although money is important as one of our tools to help us create a successful life, true abundance is more than money. It is our well-being with Spirit, self and others.

When we realize Spirit is our true source for everything that is within our lives, we allow Spirit to work through us to create more magnificent lives than we could ever imagine. The opportunities Spirit provides us are part of Spirit’s love for us. These opportunities assist us to grow, to love, to enjoy, to share and to be all that we are created to be as expression of Spirit.

The Abundance Book by John Randolph Price

There are times we don’t get what we want immediately and we sometimes think we are being punished or that for some reason Spirit doesn’t want us to have something. Actually, when we don’t get what we want, it is because on some level WE are the ones who don’t believe we deserve what we want.

This workshop is designed to help you understand and release any restrictions you have concerning your abundance. The first part of each session will be discussion, followed by the use of relaxation techniques to explore old ‘programming’ – whether of this life or others – that has caused a resistance to allowing abundance in one or more areas of your life.

This workshop will allow each of us to interact with loving support of each other and to create or anhance the belidf that true abundance is available for us in every area of our lives.

Join Norma Mitchell alternate Thursday Evenings from 7 – 9 pm beginning March 1, to create prosperity in love; balance with self and others; health in mind, body, emotions and spirit; enjoyment of life; and true abundance of Spirit’s gifts in all areas of our lives.

I AM The Documentary, now available on dvd.

$14.98.

Shady Acres Entertainment and Paladin present a Shady Acres Entertainment production of “I AM”, a film by Tom Shadyac.

I AM is an utterly engaging and entertaining non-fiction film that poses two practical and provocative questions: what’s wrong with our world, and what can we do to make it better? The filmmaker behind the inquiry is Tom Shadyac, one of Hollywood’s leading comedy practitioners and the creative force behind such blockbusters as “Ace Ventura”, “Liar Liar”, “The Nutty Professor”, and “Bruce Almighty”. However, in I AM, Shadyac steps in front of the camera to recount what happened to him after a cycling accident left him incapacitated, possibly for good. Though he ultimately recovered, he emerged with a new sense of purpose, determined to share his own awakening to his prior life of excess and greed, adn to investigate how he as an individual, and we as a race, could improve the way we live and walk in the world.

Armed with nothing but his innate curiosity and a small crew to film his adventures, Shadyac set out on a twenty-first century quest for enlightenment. Meeting with a variety of thinkers and doers – remarkable men and women from the worlds of science, philosophy, academia, and faith – including such luminaries as David Suzuki, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Lynne McTaggart, Ray Anderson, John Francis, Coleman Barks, and Marc Ian Barasch – Shadyac appears on-screen as character, commentator, guide, and even, at times, guinea pig. An irrepressible “Everyman” who asks tough questions, but offers no easy answers, he takes the audience to places it has never been before, and presents even familiar phenomena in completely new and different ways. The result is a fresh, energetic, and life-affirming film that challenges our preconceptions about human behavior while simultaneously celebrating the indomitable human spirit.
