How is March treating you so far? For the first time this year, we’re getting all green lights and the energy wants you to use and enjoy it for all that it’s worth. You might feel a higher emotional charge for the first few days of this month but as the weeks pass and we enter the cusp of Aries season around March 17th it turns more instinctive and grounded.
If you feel like February and its experiences are still occupying your mind, reading last month's forecast can help get perspective and close the door on the energy.
March is a wonderful time to start new things, to turn the page and invite yourself to take things on with a playful approach and a focus on fun. In the northern hemisphere, Spring is around the corner and as the shops fill with colorful tints and crisp light fabrics the energy is asking us to lighten up in all ways and in all areas of our life. You will only live through the current time once, so what would it take for you to enjoy each day more? What would lift your mood and delight your senses?
If you’re in the southern hemisphere you might already dread the switch in temperature and energy. If you have a tendency to retreat with the warmth and feel the ghost of seasonal depression showing up then the energy this month is here to remind you that you can always choose a lighter experience. Maybe it is buying flowers for your home, or picking fresh produce and fruits that give your senses that burst of summer flavor. Maybe it’s wearing lighter colors even when everyone else is in black. Maybe it’s watching content and reading books that transport you to warmer shores. The heat you’re missing is best turned on from the inside out and the choices you make now will help you all winter through.
This month has a link to our yearly global energy, specifically the fear vs faith aspect. From the Numerology Forecast for 2023:
“2023 is a 7 year and its themes have to do with the journey from fear to faith. Most of this year will span the spectrum of trust that lives in between these two polarities. This year will feel different for each of us, depending on our own numbers, numeroscope and names.
The number 7 in Chaldean Numerology is the most spiritual number, holding within itself a promise of connection to all higher levels of consciousness, power and inspiration. It is a light and sensitive number that needs a sense of purpose to be fully happy. But the needed purpose does not depend on logical moves up the ladder of ambition. Its goal is to bring us close to heaven, becoming one with our creative potential, the soul of the world and the art of living a life where we walk with spirit on all sides.
A 7 year tests our faith, there could be dark nights of the soul and challenges ahead of us. An untested faith can flicker and burn out and so this year is here to test and expand your faith in yourself, the world and what wants to be created through you. It could be a year of major changes and awakening if you’ve been sleeping on your calling. It could also show you the missing pieces of your personal puzzle. Maybe you figure out what is missing from your daily routine, or what you really need to love your job or make sense of your career. It could also lead to spiritual shifts, a crisis of faith and a tearing down of idols in the mainstream media on a national and international scale.” Read the full forecast for 2023 here.
Connecting the energy of March to the fear vs faith aspect of the global energy highlights the areas where our concerns and logic are just plain old fear in disguise. Look at your habits and thought patterns that have been created and reinforced since 2014. Some of our recent collective fear patterns come from living through the global pandemic, layoffs, the war in Ukraine and looking in the mirror and realizing that the face we see is marked by those years where fear won.
Deeper patterns of fear are often inherited. The loss and struggle of previous generations show up as idiosyncrasies and words we say that echo a famine or struggle experienced by people so far up our family tree we might never have heard their names or seen their pictures. No matter the patterns of fear in your life and how they show up this month this is a gentle invitation to rewrite and reframe the victim stories. If you are alive today then it is your great privilege to experience and pass on the possibilities and joy that no one but you can harvest from this life.
Here are the cards for March 2023 from Tosha Silver's The Wild Offering Oracle deck. The deck uses different words throughout for the Divine so feel free to replace it with your own if the one on the card doesn't quite resonate.
Self-acceptance - Nothing is more exhausting than endlessly working on "yourself." When you offer your whole Being fully to Love, self-acceptance arises spontaneously. May I rest in our Oneness, dear Divine!
Clarity - Let me trust my deepest instincts in all ways, especially when matters are unclear. May my own holy intuition always guide the way.
Relationship - I call in the infinite power of Love to take over this union in every way. May it now fully belong to the Divine. Let it unfold in the perfect way for each of us. I needn't fear letting go of control; my needs are always abundantly met.
