What valuable cosmic lesson is on offer for renewal as the seasons shift this month?
ANSWER: The Hermit
A sizeable chunk of the masses struggle through the day choking on emptiness and misery.
The gloom effluvium of diurnal existence emitted by the miserable is often instigated by the same reason: the illusion of complete isolation.
The appearance of The Hermit offers relief from feeling spiritless. The Hermit exposes the valuable cosmic lesson of an intrinsic connection to the wider universe.
Yes, there are individual bodies on this plane, but metaphysical knowledge supports the reality of a profound interconnectedness with all existence.
March is all about finding and reestablishing a link to the source of everything.
The Hermit is a wise man on the mountain who discovers lifetimes of experiences within mere seconds of rumination due to his capacity to understand he is just as much of a vehicle for the wide universe as the cosmos are for him.
In the weeks ahead, whatever conscious force runs us all offers up the chance to rediscover what this body, this life is a vehicle for and to fulfill the mission to benefit literally everything else in the universe.

The whole of March is significant for this discovery practice, with an emphasis on the 1st, 9th and 10th of the month.
When the Sun, Venus, True Node and Chiron interact on March 19th, cosmological understanding is amplified and astounding.
KEY MARCH THEMES FOR EACH SUN / RISING / MOON SIGN:
Aries - Eight of Swords reversed: Ram, a psychological crisis creates restriction. Eight of Swords reversed suggests attempting to use ineffective strategy over and over again to transform the situation. This will obviously not work, it hasn’t before, why push yourself to the brink of insanity by attempting to apply the same method? Reconsider what you are doing. This is an ongoing theme, where emotional impulses and blindness reigned in February, the weeks ahead in March highlight a destructive pattern of thinking. This is not an obvious pattern and it may be shocking to learn you have been doing this. It is also likely something will occur that suddenly awakens perception of this, jolting you out of the cycle. Whatever trap or disaster may emerge, you will guaranteed be better for it in the long-run.
Taurus - Eight of Cups: Bull, do you recognize yourself? In March, a new reflection emerges. Nothing appears as it used to. Eight of Cups signifies March is a month of emotional transformation and entering into new realms of maturity. The experience is equivalent to recognizing yourself for the first time, as if you have literally grown a new face. It is now clear it’s impossible to be the person you were before. There is strength in the recognition of the past remaining in history. However, this new realm is unlikely to be easy to navigate at first. Entry into this fresh phase has weight, there is a solemnity to it. It’s not tragic, but it’s not superficial either and the gravity adds to the enormity. Remember, this is a new dawn. Go through the motions, feel everything and appreciate the profound breakthrough you have earned.
Gemini - Queen of Pentacles: Twins, sitting pretty in a garden of abundance is happening right now. With the appearance of Queen of Pentacles, the universe is presenting an opportunity to smell the roses and appreciate good fortune. It is humbling to be so well provided for. Authentic nourishment is the goal in March. External objectification of happiness is not going to cut it anymore, not like it ever has anyway. There is no contentment in a hollow externalization of void sustenance. Pardon, material projection of happiness isn’t void, it’s actually filled with extreme depression and a dire lack of fulfillment that can only lead to pain. In the weeks ahead, focus on gathering what is required to feed whatever it is that genuinely makes you feel full, whole, comfortable and content. Finally, Queen of Pentacles confirms you’ve got everything you need now, so stop searching for more and refocus attention on what has already been harvested.
Cancer - Two of Swords: Crab, welcome to the blind nebula. Two of Swords highlights a month of weighted, complex and nebulous choices. As the power of manifestation floods our minds, sometimes we forget the impact of fate, the ability to somehow will a transformation we didn’t see coming. It’s OK to not understand the choices before you throughout March. It is a hazy time period to empower the ability to obey the pressure of providence, to steer life in a direction that is illogical but profoundly necessary. Show destiny obeisance in the weeks ahead and go with the flow. Desperate frenetic activity is not the way forward right now. The best course of action is to find balance between the mind and the intellect. Take a step back and do a time out, the world will be waiting for you when this critical internal stabilizing period concludes. Remember, intense energetic action and external drive will get you nowhere. Fall prey to this and you will definitely be thrown further into limbo. Allow strong imperceptible forces to shape the equanimity you need to move forward powerfully in the future, when the time is right to proceed.
Leo - King of Cups: Lion, last month was about claiming authority over your territory and in March, you are tasked with establishing the emotional connection to the world you need to be fulfilled. Some Leos may have been so on the ball, having fun has been put on the backburner, seemingly indefinitely. It is completely possible to remain focused on being a boss in the weeks ahead while also releasing stress by doing things like going to a party, having a date, getting your flirt on, or anything similar. It’s time to infuse the day-to-day with some levity. Release the weight of obligations by having a laugh, it really is that simple right now. You’ve been dealing with really weighty subjects for a while and the solemnity of life can become depressing. Infusing frivolity and nourishing emotional releases into the situation will help you maintain the fuel you need to power through these matters for the long haul.
Virgo - The Star: Virgin, exhaustion has given way to healing. In March, de-stress, calm down and mend. The Star represents a need to feel the soothing forces of the universe for a bit. It is sometimes easy to forget there is calm after facing an uphill battle or carrying a burdensome load for so long. It is also easy to forget how essential it is to get well, to heal. There is a tendency to just keep going as if everything is a life or death matter, the adrenaline is pumping and the body forgets restfulness. Fortunately, you’re out of luck if you want to keep pushing through hardcore, because since The Star is a Major Arcana card, which makes it a powerful force of the universe, providence does not reward such folly. In this climate there are choices to make about how best to expend your resources. It’s necessary to ask what is really worth it, what may need to be scaled down or amplified and what has to stay or go. In previous months, this type of curative reflection has been limited or virtually impossible to pursue for various reasons, but let’s focus on The Star card’s meaning in the tarot deck for a moment. The Star card appears after the complete upheaval of The Tower, which normally reflects a challenging time period of forced transformation, with some event occurring that strikes like lightning, burning down previously solid life structures. So now that Virgo has entered The Star, there are important decisions to be made about how to restructure day-to-day existence. Damaged goods struck down by The Tower need to be removed, to clear the way for reparation of residue from the past. Take a breath to figure out how you really want to proceed, without a ponderous load forcing movement into a specific direction. This is legit the season to begin anew for you.
Libra - Five of Swords: Scales of Balances, defeat has arrived. Five of Swords represents picking up the mess from a worthless battle. However, this could have been avoided with good leadership. In an unequivocal display of extreme hubris, someone in this group wanted full recognition for everyone else’s efforts. The other possibility is simply wanting to win at all costs without a solid plan or even a clear goal in mind. The best approach to take is to remain calm, cool and collected, with a full commitment to keeping a low profile and working from the background in service to others. Please be sure any advancement on an issue is pursued with humility, otherwise defeat is imminent. You are not failing by choosing to forego the spotlight in favor of doing good work behind the scenes.
Scorpio - The High Priestess reversed: The Scorpion is regressing. This doesn’t mean some major f**k up is happening, it’s quite the opposite. Some type of obstacle or issue from the past now needs to be rectified. March is a time for reassessment, especially in consideration of partnerships. Balance is required, even if one person is the stronger force while the other is more supportive or subservient. Whatever the relationship dynamic, there is the possibility of achieving equilibrium by supporting and reinforcing the other’s best qualities. The only problem with this issue, which is a total matter of the heart and could involve love of some kind, is that there is no overnight fix or solution, so it is going to take a while to get to the root of this. Do what’s possible and be patient.
Sagittarius - Page of Brooms: Centaur, having been launched into a new environment of success and learning, it is important to balance ambition with dignity. However, there is every indication of progress and accomplishment. The only point of caution as you enter into this fresh period of super exciting prosperity is in relation to the group dynamic. It is imperative to put your best foot forward, of course, but do this in somewhat of a conciliatory manner. If you are in a position to actually choose members of the team, perform this task with extra care. The best way to approach this is by putting your existing knowledge to good use without entering into precarious grounds. Even though there is a huge learning curve and so much newness going on here, you’ve got what it takes to add tremendous value to this whole endeavor. There is no reason to dampen enthusiasm, just take it slowly with an eye toward evaluation. Many elements are moving in this situation that could be occluding an expected outcome, but that’s OK. Keep an open mind and accept a hindrance with patience and good grace. You’ve got to rely on intuitive guidance with this one, becoming a vehicle for the profound wisdom of providence by acquiescing to the spirit of the moment with deference and humility. Even though this is a climate of extreme success, a little bit of restraint will do you good in the long-run.
Capricorn - Nine of Cups reversed: Goat, sometimes there is such an emphasis on what is truly desired that not attaining this imagined success can be devastating. There is no reason to abandon the dream, of course it’s achievable, but not without the help of other people. Manifesting this alone is not an option, so everyone needs to be on the same page. Don’t worry about doing anything wrong, that’s not the issue, there is just a need to convey your dream in a way that makes the vision occur as the other party’s dream too. This is inspirational leadership, the mark of an incredible leader who possesses the ability to unite a group around a common vision. The problem with this situation is that performing this task requires super deep emotional maturation. For some reason, it’s just not easy to rally everyone to a common vision, because there’s a deep personal issue popping up, adding a whole bunch of gravity to the situation. This depth of emotion is great because it is forcing you to grow up and just do it. Please don’t fear the sentiment, it’s actually wonderful, and may in fact aid in connecting with others by exposing your own vulnerabilities. There is every indication of success, so keep at it.
Aquarius - Five of Brooms: Water Bearer, wait out the contention. The clashes have no simple solution and personal advancement rests in observing each point of conflict from the sidelines. Ideas kept out of the skirmish will manifest in a strikingly progressive way later on. This is a time to receive inspiration and perhaps even spiritual clues surrounding creative matters. Although artistic endeavours can be highlighted in the suit of Brooms, this matter isn’t limited to this form of creativity, everything is creative, even math, there is some form of creation in every field or exercise, even breathing is creative. The main message of Five of Brooms for you in March, Aquarius, is to bide your time until the absolute perfect opportunity to create this specific thing arises. You don’t want to jump on something just because somebody else is hollering about how right it is. Hold out for perfection.
Pisces - Death: School of Fish, the moment of completion has finally arrived. The phase is over and a new beginning is here. March is super deep. What you are facing is a time period where ultimate truth is apparent in everything you do or witness. However, this profound clarity is liberating, extremely enriching and filled with boundless creativity. It is a relief to experience such enthusiasm about creating this fresh epoch in life after traveling through the wilderness of the past several months. It truly is a new stage for Pisces and there is all kinds of cosmic support for applying newly gained wisdom to producing all sorts of valuable manifestations stemming from the core truth of your heart. There is absolute independence in this new realm. A round of applause is in order for the identification and complete integration with your unadulterated truth.
TIPS, SUGGESTIONS & NOTES FOR THE MONTH:
- Reflect. It’s a really important time period to uncover the truth within; there has been an emphasis on external illusions of reality for too long.
- Rediscover. The weeks ahead are epic for tuning into the wisdom of the ancients, even if it’s just by watching a National Geographic documentary. If possible, try implementing an ancient practice. Although it is arguable that things like meditation or divination are no longer performed in the same way as the ancients, these tasks are worth taking up anyway, in a bid to connect with a broader understanding of cosmology.
- Find and fill internal voids. Even the most ‘woke’ have vacuums. Step outside of the comfort zone to see what elements of life have been serving as a band-aid for inner emptiness.
