March 4th

March 4, 2010

Today is March 4th, or as my music teacher mother would say about today:

“March forth in 4/4 time.”

Astrologically, it’s not yet the time to march forth though.
Mars, the planet in charge of marching (and aggressive and assertive behavior and taking direct action of any kind) is still in retrograde motion and is slowing down to a visual Stop on March 10.  If you have your Sun or any planets near 0 Leo, Taurus, Aquarius, or Scorpio, expect to be increasingly hair-triggered (or encounter those who are) until the middle of the month.
Mars gets (or gives?) punch-drunk when it’s standing still in a fire sign.   The good news is any project that’s been stalled since December will have the brakes released after the 10th.  It may feel a bit like a stone from a slingshot.  Be ready to take action!
