Vedic and Western Astrology for March 2023: Venus and Jupiter, Life as Destiny
by Curtis Burns,

This month we have a beautiful conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in sidereal Pisces.  Many words have already been written about it about Jupiter and Venus themselves.  Such a conjunction can signify many amazing things, but we have to take the whole picture of the sky into account

Venus and Jupiter conjunction March 1 2023 with Mercury conjunct SaturnWe can also see a decidely different astrological alignment of Mercury and Saturn also in sidereal Aquarius.  Mercury and Saturn together here can help us to stay realistic about life during otherwise dreamy moments, it pulls us back down to earth, focused on matters important but less  idealistic or escapist than Venus and Jupiter.

Not long thereafter on Saturday, March 4, the whole astrological gestalt becomes quite abrupt or harsh.  Quickly bringing us back to reality with it’s challenges and victories-yet-to-be-won.  There will be a few more bumps down the road as you’ll see in this report (not fully written yet).

The planets can seem like unsympathetic taskmasters up there, ever pushing us on, raising the hurdles again and again.  However us humans could learn to be less resentful of the forces of fate and desitny, they are molding forces.  Our characters are like unrefined metal, these archetypal, mysthical and spiritual forces, very much alive, are like eternal blacksmiths hammering out our impurities, thrusting us into the furnace of trial, forging the steel of our minds, bodies and spirits.  At the same time fate breaking  the iron shell surrounding our hearts.

LIfe is hard, life is easy, it should be too much of just one.  In our hearts we can be at peace, but in the realm of action, the lazy should not be rewarded.
