Monthly Astrological Insights for March 2022

Date Posted: February 28, 2022

Eventful, Deadly and Turbulent month of March


Russian invasion of Ukraine, deadly war and senseless killing

The conjunction of Mars, Pluto and Saturn (all three malefic planets) in Capricorn is happening first time since Pluto was discovered around 1932. While Mars-Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn lasts till the April 7, Mars-Pluto close conjunction during the first week of March and Mars-Saturn close conjunction during the last week of March are likely to be extremely explosive and devastating for the world and especially for Ukraine and Russia.  Some of the manifestations of these conjunctions will be reflected in Russian invasion of Ukraine, unsettling climate due to political turmoil in USA, Europe and other areas of world.  The human casualties and sufferings in Ukraine and other places can become huge and beyond our imagination and uncontrollable.

Political turmoil in the United States (March 20-25)

In addition to Mars-Saturn-Pluto conjunction as detailed above, during March 20-25, Mars squares Uranus. This square may prove to be politically very intensive and deadly for most of nations, but especially for the United States.  Political turmoil, changes in cabinet member appointments, political instability due to sharp increase in friction between the republicans and democrats are the real possibilities.

Spikes in Relationship Breakups (March 1-20)

After being direct in motion on January 28, Venus is still catching up to reach her average speed of a degree per day. It will take the entire month of March before that happens. In addition, since about mid-February Mars has been in a very close conjunction with Venus within a degree in the sidereal Sagittarius. Beginning March they (Mars and Venus) both simultaneously enter the sidereal Capricorn and within a couple of days (March 2-5) they both simultaneously conjunct explosive Pluto in Capricorn. Despite being in the exalted sign, Mars in Capricorn from relationship standpoint is in his adversary Saturn’s sign.  And with Pluto, the energy of impulsive, aggressive, vicious and capricious Mars can become explosively crazy. And being with Venus it’s certainly deeply affects even a sound relationship depending on the Mars and Venus disposition in a natal chart. As a result, it wouldn’t be surprising to see an unprecedented spike in relationship breakups during the first three weeks of March.

Would President Joe Biden fare better in March?

President Joe Biden’s current Dasa cycles are: Jupiter major, Rahu intermediate and Venus as sub cycle lasting through March 22, 2022.  And then the next sub cycle will be that of Sun. The planets in the Nakshatras (constellations) ruled by Jupiter are: Jupiter and Mercury; in the Nakshatras ruled by Rahu are: Mars and Ketu; in the Nakshatras ruled by Venus: none; and in the Nakshatras ruled by Sun are Uranus and Neptune. Thus, the activation of energies of Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, Ketu and Venus (up to March 22) are expected to be reflected in President’s present activities and actions.  After March 22 in place of Venus energy, energies of Uranus and Neptune become active until May 5.

With Libra as his ninefold (Navamansh) ascendant, the favorable Jupiter continues to be in the 5th house of his Gochar (transit) chart; Mercury in the 4th house of his transit chart till March 4, then in the 5th till March 24, and then in the 6th for the rest of the month. While the 4th and 6th house Mercury is favorable the 5th house Mercury (March 4-24) may prove to be a bit challenging as his progress might be get stalled. Venus is going to be in the favorable fourth house of his transit chart for the entire month. Mars, on the other hand, may turn out to be unfavorable.

Given the transit (Gochar) chart dispositions of his active planets, the favorable Jupiter, at least until March 16, is likely to help him successfully executing his domestic and international agenda. During the latter part of the month, his adversaries may get strengthened to block his efforts for carrying out his agenda. He may have to deal with few unavoidable situations.

During the first week of March, the favorable Mercury in the 4th house of his transit chart makes it a lot easier for him to deal with his critics and adversaries. But later on until March 24, he is likely to be bogged down due to communication issues with his administration. However, during the last week he is likely to be successful in recovering from the communication issue problems.

While the favorable Venus keeps him from faltering in dealing with the ongoing issues, Mars is looking to be challenging from the health standpoint (mostly due to unprecedented stress level) and dealing with his adversaries. In addition, a close conjunction of Mars and Venus in the fourth house for almost during the entire March is likely to create a turbulent political atmosphere around him, and it may become a big headache for him as he must simultaneously deal with the domestic and the international crisis of unprecedented proportions.

As a result, until March 22 he is likely to be in the midst of a period filled with nonstop crisis with mixed performance. However, after March 22, a sudden change in his political future is likely to emerge due to activation of energy of Uranus and Neptune.  Uranus being in the seventh house of his transit chart (and in the first house of his Navamansa transit chart) he is likely to experience a very stressful but successful and rewarding period that will tremendously help him recover from his sliding and stalled popularity.

Overall, his performance during the first three weeks of March is a mixed bag of success, but the last week of the month may prove to be a much needed boost for his political carrier and popularity.

Global Insights….

The important challenging planetary configurations for March include: Neptune-Rahu (March 5-11) and Pluto-Saturn (March 24-31) ninefold quincunxs; Uranus-Mars (March 21-23) square; and Pluto-Mars (March 3-4) conjunction.

The energy of the Neptune-Rahu (March 5-11) ninefold quincunx would be reflected in social as well as economic turmoil in Russia and/or China. Covert activities around the world may find a new momentum (but because of Neptune’s secretive character we may never know) with regard to terrorism and other international conflicts.

The manifestation of the Pluto-Saturn (March 24-31) ninefold quincunx maybe reflected in an outbreak of violence and terrorist activities, natural as well as man-made calamities, and war-like climate in some parts of the world, especially in Ukraine. Tension between Israelis and Palestinians is likely to escalate again at a new level. A few eastern European countries, Ukraine and Russia may experience political or social turmoil.

The energy of the Uranus-Mars (March 21-23) square may become responsible for a possibility of some sudden outbreak of an undesirable happening and strong possibilities of both natural and man-made calamities. The emergence of a new political or social crisis in the United States is likely during these few days.

The Pluto-Mars (March 3-4) conjunction may mean a strong possibility of escalation in terrorist activities and violence, especially the Russian invasion of Ukraine will be devastating. Also, a strong possibility of both natural and man-made calamities is likely during this period.

The important auspicious planetary configurations for March include Uranus-Rahu (March 14-20) and Saturn-Rahu (March 26-29) ninefold trines and Neptune-Saturn (Feb 28 – March 8) ninefold sextile. 

The Neptune-Saturn (Feb 28 – March 8) ninefold sextile may become responsible for expansion of religious activities all around the world with new vigor and energy, conservatives finding new ways to expand their agenda without compromising with liberals on sticky issues. Republicans will have upper hand over democrats. China is likely to experience a positive and rewarding period in handling their domestic issues as well as improving the foreign relations through better policies.

The Uranus-Rahu (March 14-20) ninefold trine may become responsible for economic recovery in the United States. Also, this period may prove to be favorable in passing few bills in US congress as the chances of cooperation between the democrats and republican lawmakers are high.

The manifestation of the Saturn-Rahu (March 26-29) ninefold trine may be reflected in a positive period for scientific innovations and discoveries resulting in technological advances and economic expansions.

The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are:  Russia, Ukraine, the United States, Europe, China and the Middle Eastern countries-Afghanistan, Iran, Israel and Palestine.
