Mars in Libra begins to withdraw on March 1st, which will continue until May 20th. This aggressive, or belligerent, aspect can stretch relations between countries to the limit at their borders. This may lead to war – hot or cold – but certainly evokes serious concerns.
Under the dominant aspects of the withdrawal in March, the scales of Libra on Vladimir Putin’s map will play a significant role. It is clear that this will affect Putin’s actions in the next several months ahead.
It would not be a surprise if the story of Ukraine becomes the focal point in a renewed cold war between the Soviet Union viz à viz NATO and the United States.
All of this can affect the economic prospects for Europe, therefore, if NATO becomes entangled in affairs in the Ukraine or in the Middle East, and the withdrawal of Mars continues to influence events right up until June.
Mars retrograde in Libra also demonstrates Putin’s plans; he plans to conquer the whole of Ukraine. NATO’s and the US’s response is not yet clear, but the month of March will certainly put the Soviet – Western relationship to the test.
For Israel, the withdrawal in March from Libra connects to a previous withdrawal, when Egypt closed the Straits of Tiran before starting the Six Day War, which doubtless will have implications for events affecting Israel in March too.
Benjamin Netanyahu is connected with this withdrawal in March, and events related to him, including security risks, attacks, resumption of war with Lebanon or Gaza, or the dangers and risk of a further Intifada and the uprising of minorities of all kinds will be key in the coming months.
Benjamin Netanyahu will have to make some decisions, but he may not be able to completely control the unfolding of events, because Israel is entering a period where everything is stormy, “kicking” and in flux.
In the first week of March there will be good days for personal investing on the financial side of things. Venus’ disharmony with Libra in March may bring poor relations between business partners, however, until March 5th.
Venus’s arrival in Aquarius will affect the rights and opportunities of employees.
For March 6th, The Venus and Mercury bucket mainly impacts social issues and problems of minorities to raise their heads prominently .
For March 7th, Jupiter is out of its 4 months withdrawal from Cancer, but there is still the problematic aspect of Uranus in Aries, – regarding the economic aspect of the the global market, e.g. food and raw materials, we are standing on shaky ground with great potential for upheaval.
More severe weather events could hurt industrial food production and supply and ultimately people will suffer.
Surprisingly, though, good and evil play a role together under this aspect by the end of March.
From March 5th to March 12th rebellious Aquarius sits in Mercury in a hard aspect to Saturn in Scorpio – this is not good economically, for several reasons. It also has significant influence on social issues, as well as anything connected to labour markets and to bad climatic phenomena that may affect the world’s economy.
From March 9th to March 19th this is nevertheless the right time to implement long-term plans. To start to build companies, to buy cheap in order to sell more expensively later – everything related to the long-term economic field .
It is an excellent aspect for trade, employment and new contracts. This periods flows by quickly though, with good communications being of critical importance.
Good opportunities with surprising news may supply a positive feeling to the financial – economic sector world-wide or at least many parts of it.
This can be an opportunity for media companies and technology companies to make profits, or for medical-technology companies to release a new product in the surprisingly optimistic atmosphere that will be going around.
From March 18th to March 23rd, when Mercury is going away from Pisces, one should be careful about trusting anyone when it comes to money. Mercury has an effect spreading confusion regarding the workplace and employees. Mercury also raises the threshold of scandal and controversy.
Finally, we come to the last part of the month looking again at an economically dangerous aspect. Many disappointments and expectations, then are not realized in financial matters.
Advised not to invest, buy and start a business during this period. When the Sun and Uranus conjunct with Pluto at 90 degrees Cancer is wearing Jupiter’s clothing: this is a T- Square, which signifies the danger of war or an act of a sudden attack of fire in a whole region. This can affect the whole world, or at least some of its regions, and cause significant economic changes.
