Preview month March
Astronomy and astrology in daily practice
The Lovers (tarot)
Saturn in Pisces
Wisdom of Lao Tse
Next month, potentially gives good opportunities for growth in awareness and consciousness.
The energies are changing significantly. Try to be receptive and live them.
I wonder what you might observe in your own lives.
In any case these energy changes won’t let you untouched. It is meant that certain “gates” to a better world will be opened. The entrance to these gates can be found in your own consciousness.
In the past I have spent some words on this subject in a series of contributions to this newsletter based on the booklet “Light on the path and through the gates of gold”.
I wish you all a month with growing awareness and consciousness.
The great invocation
From the point of light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men
May Christ return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known.
Let purpose guide the little wills of men
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
The Great Invocation was given to humanity by the spiritual Hierarchy, the aggregate of those members of humanity who have triumphed over matter, who have achieved the goal of self-mastery by the same path that individuals tread today. The spiritual Hierarchy is the result of human activity, aspiration, and achievement; it has been created by and of humanity. The members of the Hierarchy have achieved a complete control of the personality or lower self. They are no longer centered in the individualized consciousness but have entered into the wider realisation of the planetary group life.
Preview for the month March
The 2 most important changes in energy for 2023 will take place this month.
Among many in general friendly energies, first the planet Saturn and 2 weeks later also Pluto will change signs.
Saturn will enter Pisces on March 7th at 2.35 pm and Pluto will change Capricorn for Aquarius on March 23rd at 1.23 pm.
During the first few days of March, we will see friendly and creative energies. We could expect positive results out of it. They will help us in many ways on our path, our efforts will be rewarded.
On March 2nd we will have a conjunction between Jupiter and Venus (on 13th degree Aries) and on this same day also Mercury and Saturn will be conjunct (on 30th degree of Aquarius).
The first gives risks of exaggerated and adolescent behavior, the latter brings opportunities for growth in connection with higher forms of existence.
The Full Moon on March 7th on the 17th degree of Virgo brings us opportunities to enlarge the societal cohesion.
We might need this in many manners, so take the chance where needed and possible.
Shortly after, we will experience the energy change of Saturn entering Pisces.
Saturn is well structured and Pisces not at all.
What could we do to balance these contradictory energies?
When we have managed this challenge, many possibilities will become our part to realize our objectives.
On March 15th our productivity might be low. Don’t push too hard, take some time to reload and think about your beautiful ideas not yet realized. Passing some time in nature might also be a good idea.
From March 17th energy is excellent to prepare for complex projects and also to start realizing them. Especially while new energetic impulses are on the threshold as the Sun will enter Aries on March 20th. Work to be done.
The New Moon on March 21st on Aries 1st degree gives the picture for spring.
The astrological mandala gives the following symbol:
A woman just risen from the sea; a seal is embracing her.
It symbolizes the emergence of new forms and of the potentiality of consciousness.
It opens possibilities for the impulse to be.
At the same time, it also opens up for loving encounters.
Will this be the message voor March 23rd when Pluto will enter Aquarius.
At any case Pluto in Aquarius expects us to become much more social and societal.
On March 25th the planet Mars leaves Gemini and enters Cancer. Due to the retrograde motion in the last months of 2022, Mars resided in Gemini from August 2022.
It might have brought us in depth ideas to carry out in the future.
We will become more directed to our family and roots.
It also is an excellent period to create success in many options.
On the last day of March, we could have unexpected encounters.

Astrology and astronomy in daily practice.
This month the planet Mars will be visible high in the South at sunset.
On February 28th and March 28th Mars is to be found close to the Moon.
Saturnus will be too close to the Sun to be visible.
On January 31st I saw unexpectedly a beautiful conjunction between Moon and Mars, they were straight above me. Unfortunately, they were too close together and Mars too faint to take a clear picture of it.
On February 6th Turkey and Syria have been struck by powerful earthquakes. In most cases earthquakes occur together with eclipses, however this time there was no eclipse.
But when we see an eclipse as a special edition of a Full or New Moon it becomes clear. It all occurred shortly after the Full Moon high above us.
We already know the influence of the Moon on our tides especially at Full and New Moons.
At the same time this Full Moon made a square with Uranus, known for unexpected events.
The powers raised turns out to be also of influence at the incidence of earthquakes.
I found a number of publications where this has been researched.
On February 23rd I was on holiday on one of the Dutch islands in the “Waddenzee”.
It was a rather cloudy period, however when I walked along the beach that day, I got the opportunity to make the picture underneath
Picture: Moon, Jupiter, and Venus (February 23rd, 2023 – J Weber iPhone)
We can see in one line from above downwards: the Moon (shortly after being New), Jupiter, Venus.
The light on the bottom is of Vlieland harbor.
When we drove home the next day, we saw a beautiful rainbow (picture underneath).
Both pictures were about the moment the Sun made a transit on the IC (indicating roots) of my birth chart.

The Lovers (tarot)
Starting from the point of view of our daily use of language for many of us an intriguing picture.
An indeed, it is, there is a whole world behind.
Each of us will have some pictural vision of it and without exaggeration they will show different views.
When I think about “the Lovers” in the first place I will think of the card from the Rider Waite tarot.
In February it happened to be my monthly card.
When I started to look very close to the picture, a number of details struck me, reminding me to esoteric pictures.
When reading the explanation in the book “the tarot as a key to insight” from Eleonore Oldenburger, many things became clear to me.
In the first place we see the Sun, with her omni-present rays; a representation of the cosmic 7 rays and in this case the second ray of Love and Wisdom.
Then also the angel, Rafael bringing a message full of cosmic wisdom to Adam and Eve in paradise.
In the tree behind Eve, we see 4 ripe pieces of fruits, representing the 4 elements (fire, air, earth, and water). We also see Eve looking up at the angel prepared to receive a message.
Behind Adam we see the tree of life, with 7 branches on one side and 5 branches on the other side, in total 12 branches.
These 12 represent the star signs, the 7 the sacred planets and the 5 the not-sacred planets.
All rays bring us the message of divine love and subsequently transferring it to our surroundings.
This is possible by filling your heart with love, causing your ego to stop playing a prominent role.
As soon as you permit the never ending unconditional and loving source of consciousness to enter you, you allow this source to manifest more often in your live.
Open up for it and become aware of its existence. To heal is to admit the divine and loving perfection already being part of us.
This card relates to the star sign Virgo, as well as the second ray.
The element related to this star sign is Earth. Alan Oken writes about this:
The focus to the earth of Pluto brings the chance to dig up the underworld, bringing up from the depth of materialism the essential qualities of love to mankind. Most of mankind still not being aware of this and the essential quality of love still being hided in the deepest darkness.
I wish the rays will enter and wake up your hearts and fill them with love.

Saturn in Pisces
On March 7th Saturn will enter Pisces.
In general, Saturn needs two and a half year to make a transit through a sign. We will experience this passage in most cases between 2 and 4 times in our lives.

Saturn is related to structure, limitation, order, and regulations.
Above recent picture illustrates this strict structure.
In Pisces, Saturn doesn’t feel comfortable. All Pisces born, intuitively swim in all directions, without any track of organisation.
There is plenty of fantasy without limitation. The Fish doesn’t like limitations.
The big challenge will be to use structure as a helpful means and not as an objective, when trying to control societal challenges or ideals that might be realized.
Our society is complicated, we cannot have solutions serving everybody.
At the same time, we have to live with a transit of Neptune in Pisces (I wrote about is in the last monthly letter). Also, Neptune will not be the factor taking care for the structure, in the contrary.
Neptune brings intuitive insight based on unpersonal ideals.
Consequently, we could expect everything needing structure to lose influence.
We might see this back in our society where problems become less controllable.
At the same time, it is an excellent period to use the infinite cosmic source with ideas for a better world and a society serving all of us.
When Saturn arrives in February 2026 in Aries there will be plenty of cooperative energy for improvements (Pluto in Aquarius, Uranus in Taurus, and Neptune in Aries).
A transit of Saturn through Pisces takes place once in every 30 years.
Former transits were 1994-1996 and 1964-1967.
In 1994 we saw Pluto in Scorpio, Neptune, and Uranus in Capricorn.
The Wall had recently been torn down, we saw borders disappearing (Neptune in Capricorn) and renewal of structures (Europe). Pluto in Scorpio took care for in depth transformation.
In 1964 Pluto and Uranus were in Virgo and Neptune in Scorpio.
It was the time of an in-depth innovation of education (Virgo) where ideals (Neptune) were established thoroughly (Scorpio).
Above analysis is in general applicable for society as a whole.
The influence on individuals or groups can be very different. For individuals this can be a rather embarrassing period, where we are limited without knowing why en what fore.
Individuals who have developed more consciously, have a little different perspective.
Saturn in Pisces can be very helpful to unveil illusions, limiting the further growth of consciousness.
This will bring opportunities to transform restrictions into challenges, at the same time being helpful in restructuring and making possible our ideals.

Recently, one of the readers of this newsletter asked me to make and explain her annual horoscope.
In preparing this, I look at the most important energies and their actual time and date.
One specific question was about study and education for professional life.
I noticed the education was related to very young children from 0-4 years old.
These children were born in the corona era (the period we had to deal with the energies of the square between Uranus and Saturn). The assumed problems of the children were related to the ASS spectrum (autism). The square energy between Uranus (freedom) and Saturn (order and limitation) fits well to this.
From astrological practice it is known that we can recognize generations of mankind when trans-Saturnal planets change signs. Energies change remarkably and we recognize this in birth charts of people.
Thus, generations of people can be identified together having certain characteristics different from other groups.
Pluto takes in general 20 years to make a transit in a sign (in reality between 10 and 30 years due to the eccentric orbit of Pluto). The Pluto in Capricorn generation is from the era 2008-2024 (16 years), the Pluto in Sagittarius generation is from the era 1995 to 2008 (13 years) and the Pluto in Aquarius generation (era 2024-2044) will take 20 years).
Those born a Pluto in Sagittarius are also called Millenials. Their world was endless and on their fingertips. In addition to Pluto also Neptune and Uranus have influence. From 1995 they together are in Aquarius (unlimited freedom). Neptune until 2008, Uranus left Aquarius in 2003.
Millenials often are related to ADHD and autism related problems.
Not to be astonished about with this special and active placement of Pluto, Neptune, and Uranus.
Part of the newborn generation have millenials as their parents. So, we can assume these are “problems” inherited between generations.
When I finally looked at the birth chart of my client, I saw a conjunction between Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto. This is a helpful pattern to understand the problems and to help solving them.
An additional indication comes from the fact that this conjunction is part of a Yod (an astrological pattern with 2 in-conjunctions (150-degree aspect) to an apex planet (here Uranus and Saturn)), known as God’s indicator.
Sun in Cancer as one part of this, and close to Midheaven makes this feel as “to be called” to stimulate communication and contact between the children and parents. She also says: I am very glad to hear from the parents that the connection with their child becomes stronger and they understand the child better being aware of the “indicated” problem.
When we look at the degree of the MC (Midheaven: indication of potential and where all activities in this incarnation will be directed to), the astrological mandala about the 17th degree of Cancer: the unfoldment of multilevel potentialities issuing from an original germ.
This indicates an underlying need for the person to realize the potentials given at birth.
So, the objective is GROWTH.
For me this proves the self-solving character of the universe in the meantime offering us problems to make us aware and conscious.
