March 2022 Astrological Influences & Rituals

The energy of rebirth and sudden change is all around us. What has been buried in darkness may now come to light. New ideas, new perspectives, and new chapters are unfolding. The eagerness for change is palpable. 


March 2, 2022 (9:34AM PST / 12:34PM EST / 5:34PM UTC): Dark Moon in Pisces tends to cause an unpick in self-doubt and thoughts of past failures. Pitfalls of the past will rise out of the darkness. This influence is specifically noticeable in Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) and Air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius)

Regardless of your Sun sign, for the next 3 nights, it is essential to mentally balance between what you are doing and what you think you should be doing. It's okay to let go of outworn goals or values. Realign with a new path. When the first crescent of the Witch's New Moon reveals itself on March 4, it will be time to start anew.

If you feel stuck in your current situation, do the Path Opening Ritual tonight or tomorrow, March 3. It will help release the resistance that has been subconsciously and energetically roadblocking your headway. The alternative date for this ritual is March 31 or April 1. 

Another option for this Dark Moon is burning a Juniper smudge bundle. Juniper stimulates quick endings and opens pathways for new beginnings. Make sure to carefully smudge the top of your head, the base of your spine, and the soles of your feet. 


March 4, 2022: The Witch's New Moon is when the first crescent or sliver of the Moon is visible, 2-3 nights after the Dark Moon.

The Witch's New Moon assembles steady lunar energy and is ideal for beginning a series of rituals to attract a 'perfect-for-you' romantic partner or building an energetic barrier for spiritual protection.

The Witch's New Moon rises before noon, will be most visible at sunset, and sets well before midnight. The moment you see the first crescent of the Moon, know that the Witch's New Moon is upon you. 

For those in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Oceania, your Witch's New Moon is on March 5. 


March 6, 2022: With Venus and Mars entering Aquarius today, expect the next 3 weeks to be particularly productive ... with an eccentric twist. Prosperous time for artists, writers, or anyone in a creative line of work. 


March 10, 2022: Despite today being the First Quarter Moon, don't try to keep everything low-key. With the Moon at apogee (energy contracts) and void of course most of the day, detail-oriented tasks will be prone to mistakes. Most will feel quite spacey or distracted today. So instead of doing your taxes, go for a long stroll and get some fresh air. 


March 18, 2022 (12:17AM PST / 3:17AM EST/ 8:17AM UTC): Full Moon in Virgo influences analytical thoughts and problem-solving skills. Exceptionally powerful day for the Wise Woman Ritual for successful negotiation and financial victory, such as negotiating a salary or selling a home. Note: If you need help with a particularly difficult situation, begin the Wise Woman Ritual on March 11.

This Full Moon will cause increased sensitivity to your surroundings - light, scent, sound, and vibration. If you are already a highly sensitive individual, plan accordingly. 


March 20, 2022: The Sun enters Aries, and the Northern Hemisphere enters spring. We sing up the dawn in celebration of Spring (Vernal) Equinox.

This day is considered very lucky for manifestation that requires work and determination. The Spring Equinox Ritual is a simple yet effective way to harness the energy of the rising Sun and initiate powerful change. View ritual instructions here.


March 25, 2022: Last Quarter Moon in Capricorn questions personal stability and our actions' timeliness (or lack thereof). For Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), relationships may be strained for 48-72 hours. Burn a Rosemary or Lavender smudge to calm the nerve and eliminate chaotic energies. If relationship problems are present (that you wish to resolve), thoroughly smudge both nightstands with Lavender


March 31, 2022 (11:54PM PST / April 1, 2:54AM EST / 7:54AM UTC): Dark Moon in Aries, also known as the Black Moon, occurs twice in one month. But, in this case, the Black Moon only occurs in the last 3 time zones of the world (Pacific, Alaska, and Hawaii). 

The Aries Dark Moon energy is ripe for rapid, radical, and decisive actions. Excellent evening for the Break & Reverse Ritual to banish curses, Vendetta Rituals to put an end to abusers, and Cease & Release Rituals to cut ties with toxic people and relationships. 

Allow the darkness of this semi-Black Moon to reveal your inner blockages and banish all that no longer serves you. 


Have a wonderful month! We will reconnect April 1st.


Love & Magick,
