Horoscope: ‘Love planets’ Venus and Mars inspire some spiritual renewal

This week both Venus and Mars move from business-like Capricorn into the renewal sign of Aquarius.

Thursday, March 3: The new moon is still very powerful today, with the added challenges of a Mars-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. Serious willpower either helps or hinders what we are attempting to do. The more we want it, the more difficult (or easier) the world we face. Alexander Graham Bell was born on March 3, 1847. While in Brantford, Ont., he developed the telephone. On March 3, 1921, Drs. Banting and Best at the University of Toronto, announced their miracle drug, insulin.

Friday, March 4: The moon is in Aries all day, so energetic, impulsive emotions are the rule. These same emotions get caught in challenges from the need for security and doing the best for our karma. Be honest and act with quiet courage. On March 4, 1994, the great comedian, John Candy suffered a heart attack and died.

Saturday, March 5: If you need medical help, today is the day when a gift from spirit brings you what you are looking for. It may be that March 18, 2022, is also significant in this healing process.

Sunday, March 6: Today we see both Venus and Mars leave business-like Capricorn for the sign of renewal – Aquarius. This dance between the two “love planets” has been in play for several weeks now. Today, there’s a new song to dance to and that song is Aquarius with all the forward thinking, replenishing and new creation energy associated with that sign. Frozen food went on sale for the first time on March 6, 1930. Clarence Birdseye, while in the Arctic in Canada learned how the Inuit preserved fish by freezing it. He took the idea home to Massachusetts and the rest is history.

Monday, March 7: While the moon in Aries conjunct Uranus should bring a surprise, that same moon later in the day is square to Saturn, making for a difficult time when trying to accomplish just about anything. James Donnelly, patriarch of the Donnelly family (the Black Donnellys) was born on March 7, 1816, in Ireland. Along with four other family members, he was murdered on Feb. 4, 1880, in Ontario.

Tuesday, March 8: Generous, warm, loving – even sexy energy rules today as the moon in Gemini is in perfect harmony first with Mars in Aquarius and then with Venus in Aquarius, too. On March 8, 1971, Joe Frazier ended Muhammad Ali’s 31-fight winning streak in 15 rounds in New York City.

Wednesday, March 9: Mercury has been traversing the sign of Aquarius since early January. Today, Mercury enters Pisces for a run that will last until nearly the end of the month. This means weeks of quieter news, more spiritual thinking and insights into life’s mysteries.
