Hi and Welcome to THE INTUITIVE LIFE BLOG …WITH ME, SKYE MACKENNA

And also — if you’re learning tarot, or know someone who is — I’ve created some pretty helpful intuitive and tarot products…laminated tarot reference sheets and also a new deck of tarot-sized intuitive playing cards (with the meanings right on the front!) They seem to be a great conversation starter at gatherings I’m told! If you’d like to see them, they’re all on amazon….just go to amazon.com and search for Skye Mackenna.
Plus, you can also find information about private sessions with me to see what’s coming up for YOU personally at my website http://www.intuitivelifeguidance.com. I’ll also send you an audio of our session right afterward so you won’t even have to take notes!

Okay, okay… so rocking transformation is in the air. But so is Love, Money, Abundance, Opportunity and Excitement. This is a juicy month, March is….
And even with all the intense aspects, it doesn’t HAVE to be hard. Mind you, it CAN be challenging… but challenges can also be exhilarating and freeing, abundant and breathtakingly joyful. At least after its over… changes ARE coming like a roller coaster ride – and think about it — if you hold on to the sides of a roller coaster too tight, it could probably be pretty painful. BUT if you let go and reach up high… you can get exhilaration. Whatever cobwebs there may have been – are gone. That’s what’s happening. Right now.
Last week, things were pretty intense and this coming week will be as well.
However, we will also be enveloped in some stunningly beautiful positive energy that begins early in the week… And even though by the middle of the week, we could be experiencing more of the downside of the roller coaster ride, that extraordinary energy of expansion, love and beauty is still there encompassing us.
As a quick overview of the week, on Monday we’ve got a dazzlingly positive, excellent aspect when Mars makes a flowing trine aspect to Jupiter. Be ready! This is uplifting and exciting. This energy can be positive for everything from new beginnings, finances, travelling and especially new opportunities. And this delicious energy will be in effect all away through March 19th.
But then, by Wednesday, March 11, Mars will conjunct Uranus and square off with Pluto. Also, on Thursday, Mercury will move into Pisces through March 30. And then on Saturday, March 14, Saturn will be dead still in the sky as he sits stationary retrograde. All of these connections begin – or actually continue – our transformative, if bumpy, ride into the next few weeks.
So now let’s get to the details of the week …
Saturday and Sunday, March 7th and 8th, could prove to be overly emotional, overly sensitive and/or highly charged. The life-giving Sun will conjunct Chiron, the Wounded Healer. And the same day the emotional Libra Moon will oppose warrior Mars. This combination could bring up old buried pain or wounds, either physical or emotional. However, this is a very compassionate day. And you may be seeing the wounded-ness in those around you and not necessarily within yourself. You may have the opportunity this day to reach out to someone who needs comforting. And or someone may reach out to you in a comforting way. Although with the emotional Libra Moon, the waters could be uneven or rough. Anger or frustration could be in the air as well.
And also, Sunday March 7th, belongs almost entirely to that emotional Libra Moon. She’s got a rough day of it on Sunday. She will be opposing Uranus, squaring Pluto, and opposing Venus, her ruler this day. Stable situations may seem to fall apart unexpectedly. And using force won’t bring a beneficial result. Trying to find a balance may be challenging. Making emotional decisions today wouldn’t be the best course of action. As much as possible, try not to make or take offense. If there’s a doubt or question, this would be the day to back off and make a decision tomorrow.
Now, after the weekend, today Monday, March 9th, can offer us exciting exhilaration! Action Mars makes a fortunate and flowing trine aspect to generous Jupiter. This is an abundant energy. It’s available to us for new projects and/or new approaches in a current project or situation. This elevating and inspiring energy will be with us all the way through March 19th. Life will accelerate now and joy is available to us if we choose it. This energy can go a long way in easing us over the upcoming challenging planetary connections. Feel your strength and feel your joy. Breathe it in!
Now Wednesday, March 11th, bring some of those challenging moments. It is a very hot button day. Mars makes the conjunction with Uranus and squares off with Pluto. This can bring extreme unpredictability and volatility. Mars will be triggering the main event for next week, the Uranus Pluto square, and we will be feeling this energy through March 21st. Tempers may be on the edge and they may flare and/or power struggles may erupt from previous discontent. There could be a greater potential for fires are accidents under this energy. Suppressed anger or resentment may reveal itself, either in you or from those around you. And you will be more personally affected if this closely aspects your chart. This is not a good time to push any envelopes. Sudden moves may bring cause for remorse or regret. Overreacting can only create a mess to be cleaned up later.
This is especially true since the intense Scorpio Moon squares off with Mercury, which only reinforces that is probably a healthier decision for all parties to take a step back back off a bit. Also, the Scorpio Moon squaring Mercury nudges us not to believe all we hear – or even all that we say. That deep Scorpio Moon, however, says to listen to our gut.
And on Thursday, March 12th, emotional waters may be a bit chilly since the moon will conjunct cool and serious Saturn. There could be some confusion to go along with people taking themselves too seriously because Mercury moves into nebulous Pisces today. Mercury will be in Pisces through March 30th and this will be a time for feelings, if not words. On the positive side when Mercury moves through Pisces, we are inspired.
And now we move to the energy of Saturday, March 14th and the day belongs to Saturn. Not only does the Moon step into ambitious Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, but this is the day that Saturn turns retrograde in Sagittarius and talks to us about getting down to business, making structural improvements in our lives, and getting serious about who we are, what we want, and where we want to go – and how we want to expand our world. Saturn will be retrograde in Sagittarius through June 14th , when he begins to retrace his steps in Scorpio until August 2nd. Now he’s going to ask us to get serious about psychological healing and about shared resources.
Sunday, March 15th, is another day to step back and take a breath. Early in the morning the Capricorn Moon will conjunct Pluto and square off with Uranus, once again triggering the Uranus Pluto square of next week. At the same time, she also squares Mars. Feelings and actions can be at cross purposes today situations relationships and projects can seem to fall into chaos. You, or those around you, may seem to be itching for a fight. Getting caught up in disagreements for disagreement sake is a waste of good energy and will lead to a dead-end. A good move would be to step back, take a breath and as much as possible go with the flow – and touch that awesomely expansive energy of Mars dancing with generous Jupiter that we began the week with – and no, that that abundant energy it is still there surrounding us.
We always have a choice to tap in to the energy that we choose. This week – and next – is about transformation. And transformation leads to newness, a fresh start and New Beginnings. Open your arms wide and embrace that!
Next week, the final Uranus square Pluto square occurs. By now it’s energy is quite familiar. Mercury will square Saturn and on Tuesday, March 17th, Venus will graciously relax into her Taurus. And finally eclipse season arrives. The first eclipse of the year occurs on March 20th. It’s a powerful Total Solar Eclipse at the very last degree of mystical Pisces. That’s the very last degree of the last sign of the year. It reaffirms all of this transformational energy – and tells us that new beginnings are indeed arriving.
