March 2023 Astrological Update

Carmen and Sherianna discuss astrological energy affecting us in March 2023.

Moon Signs & Healing

Most people know what their sun sign is. It’s based on the day and month we are born. In astrology, the sun sign represents our main personality, identity, where we shine, and how other people see us. In my opinion, the moon sign is an even more important part of our personality. Emotions are powerful and the moon in our birth chart shows our inner emotional nature. Our moon sign is the part of ourselves that we often hide or only express when we really get to know someone. The sun sign is our outer appearance and the moon represents our reactions, tendencies, and urges. 
    The moon travels through each zodiac sign every two to three days. It’s important to understand our moon sign because it represents where we feel emotional fulfillment, comfort, and passion.  Our emotional nature and how we express our feelings will be impacted by the sign the moon is in when we are born. It’s important to calculate your birth chart so you can know exactly what sign and house the moon is located. You will need your month, date and year of birth, exact time of birth, and place of birth to calculate an accurate birth chart.  You can do this by visiting
    My favorite thing about each moon sign helps me understand other people’s emotional natures. There are twelve moon signs and each is ruled by a natural element: Fire, Air, Earth and Water.  Below I will discuss each moon sign and some of their strengths.
    Aries moon people are resilient, strong, determined and able to push forward quickly after negative emotional experiences. I like how they never give up. Taurus moon people are patient, stable, affectionate, and calm. I like how they make up their mind and slowly work hard to achieve their goals.
    Gemini moon people are friendly, witty, restless, communicative, and social. I like how they can adapt to situations and change their emotional reactions in the moment. Cancer moon people are intuitive, nurturing, protective of their loved ones, and moody. I like how they ensure that their loved ones are taken care of when they are sick or have problems. Leo moon people are charming, fun, playful, confident, and romantic. I like how they make you feel special and encourage those they care about to express themselves.
    Virgo moon people are perfectionists, shy, hardworking, high-strung, and excellent at communicating what they really feel. I like how they can take over in a disorganized environment and bring order and stability in crisis situations. Libra moon people are peaceful, easy-going, fair, and focused on pleasing others. I like how they can make you feel better with their calm emotional presence.
    Scorpio moon people are intense, secretive, deep, powerful, and strong. I like how they are self-reliant, perceptive, good listeners, and transformative healers. Sagittarius moon people are on the move, restless, adventurous, and independent. I like how they always try to be positive and help others grow more optimistic.
    Capricorn moon people are serious, practical, responsible, and reserved. I like how they work hard to achieve what they want, their determination to succeed, and how loyal they are to those they love. Aquarius moon people are detached, eccentric, creative, freedom-loving, and friendly. I like how they are not afraid to be different and unique. Pisces moon people are compassionate, spiritual, creative, artistic, and romantic. I like how they are not afraid to love and express their emotions in deep ways.
    All twelve moon signs have strengths that help them overcome challenges in life and become more resilient. Astrology is a map of the soul and when we understand our moon sign, then we can understand our inclinations, tendencies, and urges. We can tap into what makes us feel alive and find emotional fulfillment.

Mercury in Eighth House (Excerpt from Phoenixes & Angels)

When Mercury is placed in the eighth house, you are a person who hides their thoughts and ideas from others. It is difficult for you to trust someone because you are a very private person. Blessed with a perceptive mind seeing through fakeness, superficiality, and verbal accolades is a gift. There is a need for conversation that’s deep and meaningful. You enjoy probing the minds of others and enjoy trying to figure out if others are telling you the truth. Mental games and exercises strengthen the mind. Mental connections lead to greater emotional connections.

Born as an imaginative thinker, you excel by diving deep into complex subjects and solving problems. Understanding how things work on a deeper level brings comfort. Your mind is like a sponge absorbing everything going on in the environment. This ability can lead to confusion, irritability, and depression. You pick up other people’s thoughts easily and it’s hard to differentiate your own thoughts. Psychically gifted, you might have the ability to read minds, although you may not even realize it. Gifted with listening to others you are able to help others who have problems to share. Others like to discuss their secrets and similar spiritual interests with you. You enjoy talking with others about important life matters such as life, death, love, finances, and property.

You make an excellent psychologist or counselor. You have communication abilities that pull out the truth in others. Sensing what is going on with others, you are able to verbalize the words they need to hear. Your gift of expression touches others on a deep emotional level. If you like someone you may never tell them directly. Internalizing your anger can lead to explosions where you use your sharp tongue and lash out at others. Writing down your intense thoughts and ideas in a journal would be beneficial. Writing is a good stress reliever.

Enjoyment comes through reading detective books, mystery novels, and metaphysical books on topics such as astrology, tarot, numerology, and healing. It is important to discuss spiritual topics with people who are trusted and who challenge your belief system. You would benefit by studying the paranormal and researching mystical phenomena.

Mars in the Eighth House (Excerpt from Phoenixes & Angels)

When Mars is placed in the eighth house, you are a person who has a strong sexual nature. You often find yourself involved in relationships that are deep and highly sexual. Bonding with someone on a physical level makes it difficult to ever let go of that person. You become jealous, angry, obsessive and find yourself drawn to intense, unhealthy relationships. You enjoy pushing people to the breaking point and can be reckless in your dealings with others. Temper flare-ups and emotional outbursts are common. Living on the edge, seeking an adrenaline rush through speeding, skydiving, and risky behavior can lead to accidents. You are an intensely passionate person who experiences dramatic shifts in emotion although you try to repress them. There is a need to control your intense feelings and keep things hidden from others. You can be fiercely private and reclusive when you feel vulnerable. On the other hand you can lash out at others in a fiery rage of anger.

Exercising regularly and having a physical outlet for all of your intense energy will help balance emotions. Repressing your emotions, sexual urges, and desires can make you vulnerable to illness. Avoiding extremes and finding a healthy balance should be part of your self-care plan. You’re known for restricting yourself of things or overindulging in them because you are an “all or nothing” type of person.

Intuitive, insightful, perceptive and blessed with a strong imagination you have a gift for digging up secrets. You can excel in police or detective work where you can serve behind the scenes in some way. You have an inquisitive mind and an eye for detail. Researching and delving deeply into topics that require investigative skills suit your personality. People are drawn to you and like to share their problems. To process your complex emotional nature, you need alone time. Experiencing conflicts with family over inheritances, land, wills, and the material resources of someone close to you is common. There can be challenges with the marriage partner. You may inherit money from your father, grandfather or through a male family member. You might have to battle to claim what was given to you or may be cut out of someone’s will because of your aggressive behavior.

You can have special talents and are attracted to the healing fields such as medicine, massage therapy, psychology, and any field dealing with other people’s resources. If you do not feel deeply connected with others or if you are not able to dig deeply into situations, you can become bored and restless. You are sensitive to other people’s emotions, especially anger, rage, jealousy and resentment. With practice and time, you can become a powerful force of change in the lives of others.

Venus in the Eighth House (Excerpt from Phoenixes & Angels)

When Venus is placed in the eighth house, you are focused on keeping your love nature secret and private. You will benefit through the marriage partner and tend to marry someone of a higher financial status than yourself. Blessings come through romantic partners. Your love nature is deep, possessive, and intense. When you fall in love you don’t take it lightly. Intimacy and trust are crucial in order for you to feel comfortable with a partner. Before you can become sexually active with a partner, you will wait until they gain your trust. You struggle with trusting others and find it difficult to show vulnerability with your partner. Before sharing intimate feelings, you will want to know how others feel. You can feel insecure at times because of being afraid of being hurt. Relationships are all or nothing for you. A high level of commitment and loyalty from your partner is needed and expected. You can become jealous, vengeful, and aggressive if you feel mistreated or betrayed.

Secretive individuals are attractive as well as those who work behind the scenes in some way. The partners you attract are often involved with law enforcement, detective work, psychiatry, counseling, and career fields where psychological depth is involved. You are attracted to intense and passionate individuals. In relationships you are passionate and possessive of your partner. You expect a high level of depth in your relationship and if you do not experience that you will cut ties. You feel most relationships are superficial and prefer to be alone. You cannot tolerate superficiality in your intimate relationships and are not a casual dater. You enjoy a one-on-one relationship that is stable and serious. Marrying someone solely based on their financial status is common with this placement. You are attracted to people who have money, wealth, and status. If a partner struggles financially, it will turn you off, even if you love them. Be cautious about marrying someone solely based on their financial success and wealth. Chemistry and attraction are also important aspects of a long-lasting relationship.

You attract partners that are wounded in some way. Falling in love with others comes easily if you feel needed. Be careful and think about the differences between love and pity. Sometimes you can believe that you are in love but it’s actually your own intuitive ability of feeling others’ pain. Connecting to others’ pain often brings you a partner that is unstable, unhealthy or unreliable. You may learn this the hard way and feel victimized at some time in your life. Sex and love go hand and hand which requires a deep emotional connection. Sacrificing your own feelings for others and avoiding red flags in relationships can bring heartache. When you have sex with a partner you develop a strong attachment and bond that can be difficult to break. Be cautious about who you share intimacy with because you can feel taken advantage of. You need emotional depth in your relationships in order to find fulfillment and happiness.
