March 2019 Astrological Forecast
Checkmate. From 5 March 2019 to 27 April 2026 is predicted to be one of the most significant astrological cycles in our present global destiny, as Uranus, planet of fanaticism, anarchy, power and authority raises its intimidating head and influences the game of global politics, finances and border security. As Uranus (unexpected) begins its long direct transit through the economic and fiscal sign of Taurus, this critical cycle will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the most important periods of monetary and civilised lesson-learning periods to date.
The last time Uranus transited Taurus was from March 29, 1935 to May 15, 1942, a time of great complexity and hardship in the then world of dictatorship, upheaval and devastation. It was not until Uranus moved into Gemini (affiliation) from May 16, 1942 to June 11, 1949, the allied forces began to amalgamate, turn and reform the globe from a torrid cycle of war, destruction and famine into a gradual rebuilding and changing of ways in the world’s future and learning from its past obscenities.
With the Sun (energy) connecting with Neptune (pollution) and Mercury (communication) in retrograde (downbeat) during March 2019, people will become complacent, spending valuable time debating and arguing about the Paris agreement, climate change policy, global warming, renewables and clean energy, when more important economic and humane issues are pending. With Jupiter (expansion) in Sagittarius (travel), the influx of illegal immigrants will accelerate throughout the remainder of 2019, costing governments billions of dollars in security, detention, health, welfare and court procedures. The migration movement of 2019 by aircraft (overstaying holiday visas) and sea is predicted to create bedlam for government budgets, taxpayers, infrastructure and general cost of living, if security is not adhered to.
Neptune (planet of deception), now in transit through Pisces (whimsical) until January 27, 2026, is influencing illusional thoughts. Australia and the USA will encounter a negative period of political innuendo with green parties, independents and democratic demands that challenge the exporting of thermal coal and gas to overseas countries, lobbying governments and opposition parties to observe climate change policies. Any stoppage of coal and gas exports would create huge financial losses globally—of around $60 billion dollars per year for Australia alone. Constituents would then complain and accuse federal and state governments for not having enough budgeted funds available for schools, hospitals, welfare and infrastructure. A never-ending circle of negative debate?
Australia has some of the most fertile agriculture soils in the world and water requirements will be the big issue for farmers and landholders from 2019 to 2026. With Neptune (floods) in Pisces (water), seasonal floods are plentiful in Australia, however water is never captured for commercial use, hence multi-millions of dollars are wasted cleaning up the damage that flood waters cause. With Uranus (adjustment) in Taurus, money will be budgeted for future distribution of water flow, by establishing new dams, pipelines, weirs, regulating irrigation for farmers' use and water storage for country townsfolk to use, develop and grow crops. When Jupiter (enlarge) moves into Capricorn (land) from December 3, 2019, serious planning is predicted to begin regarding water reticulation for the farmers and food bowl areas and catering for future population growth. Jupiter (expansion) in Sagittarius (movement) is presently causing major cities to become overpopulated with insufficient infrastructure to cope with the population demands. In the future, country areas will become a main attraction for settlement while Uranus (advanced transport ideas) transits Taurus (food) over the next seven years.
We must not forget that over the past four billion years and in the next few billions of years, our globe has faced variations of climate change and will continue to do so. In space our wonderful earth runs in cycles with the Sun and Moon (fact) playing a vital role in our seasons, weather conditions and tides. Droughts, electrical storms, floods, fire, volcanic eruptions and natural catastrophes have been continuous throughout our earth’s lifetime and these occurrences will be witnessed in concert again and again, as the climate changes in the future. It is almost impossible to accurately predict nature's weather, due to many changing variables. The sunspot activity can also be confusing for weather cycle predictions as it rotates on an eleven-year cycle. If we wish to reduce carbon, then we should refrain from cutting down trees in the world's forests, re-plant more forests so that vegetation can suck up the CO2 and release the oxygen we need, and revitalise the planet at the same time. In the future when Uranus (changes) transits Cancer (homes) from 2036 to 2040 we will see housing construction not made entirely of wooden frames etc.
With Uranus (advanced ideas) now moving in harmony with Pluto (break down and rebuild) until November 18, 2024, renewables will be the flavour of the time and, so far, have cost billions of dollars to establish. However, as the population increases daily, the demand for baseload power—coal, thermal, gas or hydro—will be desperately needed to cope with the intensifying building of infrastructure, heavy manufacturing, agriculture and consumer needs. Renewables and batteries as we know them in their present form will not be enough to handle the future output of baseload energy. Electricity and gas prices for consumers will be high from 2019 to 2024, calling the need for revision of an economical energy policy. Hence, from 2025 to 2030, with Uranus commencing its transit through Gemini (parliamentary law) and Pluto (atomic) in transit through the zodiac sign of Aquarius (new age), parliamentary bills and laws are predicted to be debated and passed, allowing new uranium laws to be introduced for the building of nuclear power plants in Australia. This will be the best compromising and logical answer for clean consumer baseload power for the future and give consumers cheaper electricity.
With the Sun, Mercury and Neptune in Pisces (secret negotiations) and the Moon, Venus, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn (commerce) these combinations will kick March off with a short fuse. Mercury (business matters) in retrograde (negative) from 5th to 28th will astrologically influence this month of March as an extremely frustrating few weeks for many things, including job interviews, economic advances, election campaigns, political and trade negotiations, frequent daily delays at home or at work, postponements, extra waiting time, cancellations, change of plans, court delays or adjournments, deferrals, suspended contracts or promotions, union obstruction, interruptions, misinterpretations, travel delays, botched holiday bookings, stoppages, shortages of goods, delays in trade services, difficulties locating people, misplacing valuables, breakages, forgetfulness, accidents and tiredness. However, from the 29th onward, many frustrating events and issues will fall into line, so be patient in March.
The Sun (achievements) connects with Neptune (investigation) and, with a new Moon in Pisces (secrets - religion) from the 7th, will influence behind the scenes activities, confidential matters, gambling, casinos, trade negotiations, religious issues, banking changes and financial tribunals, age care and nursing home investigations, corruption investigations, prison reforms, education and health funding, all of which will be much in the news for debate throughout March.
Medical breakthroughs are favoured this month, with new subsidised therapeutic drugs soon to be introduced in the market place. With Mars (authorities) connecting with Neptune (drugs) and Venus entering the social and sporting sector of the global horoscope, authorities will clamp down on recreational drugs, especially on the 2nd, 3rd, 9th, 10th, 16th, 17th, 23rd, 24th, 30th and 31st. Major organised crime syndicates, money laundering, prostitution, child sex offences, trafficking and drug busts could also be seen this month, especially 9th, 11th, 12, 14th, 15th, 16th, 19th, and 22nd. A slight increase in crime for this month could be seen when the Sun enters Aries (impatience) and the Full Moon on the 21st.
With major sporting events underway in March, disappointments will be common in the sporting arena and keeping to a time cycle may be difficult. With Mars (accidents) in Taurus (finances), seasonal sporting events may not get off to a fulfilling start for many players and coaches. March could be an expensive month for medical accidents, referee arguments and frustrations, player disorientation, mistakes, penalties and team disappointments. The horse racing industry can also expect increased scratchings in March, more than previous months. With Venus (money) in Aquarius (alternative), March 1-21 does not favour horse racing favourites in the betting ring. Second and third favourites and outsides may be the way to go?
The following countries will continue to encounter difficulties and change during March: United Kingdom, Iraq, Micronesia, Mozambique, Denmark, New Zealand, USA, Morocco, Tunisia, Sudan, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Ghana, Malaya, France, Spain, Israel, Palestine, Portugal, Grenada, Cape-Verde Islands, Saotome-Principe, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Nepal, Seychelles, Angola, Timor, Ethiopia, China, North Korea, South Africa, Congo, Zimbabwe, Albania, Belgium, Venezuela, Australia, Canada, India, Costa-Rica, Khalistan, Brunei, Cyprus, Mexico, Columbia, Pakistan, Saudi-Arabia, Oman, Brazil, Yemen, Uruguay, Vatican City.
During the 1st - 4th markets should be reasonably confident as the USA and China horoscopes indicate no great market change due to a reliable temporary understanding between President Trump (Gemini) and China’s Xi Jinping (Gemini) over tariffs. Initial falls are likely from the 5th but nothing serious. Trump’s meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un (Capricorn) astrologically indicates a positive sign of cooperation between the two leaders with further discussions to follow later in the year or early 2020 (perhaps near Kim’s birthday).
Kim’s horoscope shows constructive goodwill and cooperation with Trump and, from September 18th onward, the Trump-Un friendship and understanding will grow and a compromise over nuclear agreements will be seen. Kim Jong Un moves into a positive 2020, Trump’s election year, there appears to be no further nuclear test in North Korea, and this could be an omen for a second term for Trump as his popularity grows. The USA is predicted to lift certain restrictions with North Korea in the future, as all forthcoming meetings will have a successful compromise. Viewing North and South Korea’s horoscopes, combined future trade talks and deals are also predicted to be promising and the two states are predicted to sign a peace agreement and become the future competitive trading partners on the global scene by 2025-2027.
According to China’s horoscope, Korea’s partnership will influence the Chinese economy dramatically during 2025-2027 cycle. Unfortunately, China will become a protective defence and trade force to be reckoned with during this cycle, due to their trade imbalance. Heavy planetary aspects align during these years and, according to the matching of USA horoscope, the US government will have to tread lightly during this period as China will be difficult to deal with. It will be during these years China will become a law to themselves as the country begins to pressure those countries that have been granted loans and economic assistance from China.
Vladimir Putin (Libra) is entering his verbal defence mode during March, especially over his threats of USA missile placement. His personal banking accounts and investments could also be under scrutiny by the Russian public. Although his overall persona is holding in Russia, he will have to watch his back during the next three months and during October and November. Accidents or incidents are also possible for him during these months, and Putin’s popularity will decline during 2020. Putin is a secretive person who does find it difficult to express himself with confidence. Within his personality, he is always uncertain and doubtful about his capabilities, yet gives the impression to others that he is completely in command. Putin is predicted not to be a serious threat to world peace during 2019.
With Mercury in retrograde from 5th, the markets will be mixed during March. However the successful Asian meetings will be taken into consideration and slow confidence is assured. But don’t expect to jump through the hoop with your share portfolio, with Mercury in retrograde from the 5th to the 28th and the UK Brexit situation coming to an end, markets will be cautious up to the 28th. The Reserve Bank looks set to leave interest rates on hold but could lower rates by May.
Commodities, Biotech, healthcare, transport, energy, financial services, banks, media technology are worth following while the Sun transits the zodiac signs of Pisces and Aries during March. Some good buys could be found.
Market Watch: 1st, 11th, 12th, 13th, 18th, 26th, 28th, 29th. Oil: 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 11th, 12th, 15th, 23rd, 25th.
Gold: 4th, 5th, 8th, 18th, 21st, 22nd, 25th, 26th, 27th. Currencies: 1st, 5th, 6th, 11th, 12th, 15th, 22nd, 5th, 29th.
Once the United Kingdom does a deal and eventually breaks with Europe, global stock markets will show some extraordinary bullish trade over the next three months, especially the month of May for currencies. With Mercury (vote) in retrograde (negative) during March, the UK parliament will be under pressure with much indecision on the ending.
Federal politics will be full of “tit for tat” and vote for us during March with both the Coalition and Labor making extravagant promises without thinking of the long-term debt. Prime Minister Morrison will continue to be the most popular leader with opposition leader Shorten's Labor still holding the two- party preferred vote from the general public. No major polling change will be seen in March, until the federal budget is handed down in April. With Mercury (voting public) then in a forward positive motion in the zodiac sign of Aries (activity) from April 17th the preferred party gap of Labor will be closing, giving the Coalition a favourable competitiveness for the general election in May.
The New South Wales State elections will be held on March 23 and viewing the horoscopes of state Premier Gladys Berejiklian (Virgo) and opposition Labor leader Michael Daley (Scorpio) both horoscopes indicate a close polling day.
With Michael Daley, the Moon in transit will be at 4 degrees in Scorpio at 9:00 pm AEDT, close to Michael Daley’s natal Sun at 8 degrees; this is a good sign. Jupiter (fortunate) in transit will co-join his natal Venus (joy)—he will be pleased with the polling. However, Gladys Berejiklian also has the Moon in transit co-joining her natal Jupiter (fortunate); Jupiter (expansion) in transit connecting with her natal Sun and Pluto is also strong. Venus (joy) in transit links very favourably with her natal Moon.
It appears that Michael Daley may not quite have the numbers to secure the Premiership with a Labor government. The polling will be vigorous and perhaps the full count of the 93 seats in the New South Wales Legislative Assembly and the 21 of the 42 seats in the New South Wales Legislative Council may take until the 28th to fully endorse the new government. The only way Michael Daley may have a win, is with an increase in the Green vote over the global warming legislation fiasco. If Gladys Berejiklian retains her Premiership, this will be the first time since 1971 that the Coalition government of New South Wales has encountered a third term. I believe with the NSW economy continually growing and large infrastructure programs at a record high, together with the lowest unemployment levels, this may be the reason constituents will vote for a Coalition win.
Favorable days: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 19, 21, 22, 25, 27, 28.
Cautious days: 1, 2, 13, 14, 15, 18, 20, 23, 24, 26, 29, 30, 31
