Full Moon -Lunar Eclipse, Saturn T-Square, Saturn Retrograde

The Full Moon will be on Tuesday, March 22, @ 9 deg Virgo. This marks the culmination of the energies of the Hindu Lunar Month Falguna, named for Uttara Phalguni, the nakshatra of the Full Moon. Normally this is a good month for Healing, Helping Others, and Benefiting from In-laws. But the energy of this month got compromised due to the total Solar Eclipse on the New Moon. So we can't expect too much.
The Full Moon is a Lunar Eclipse. Eclipses signal forthcoming Changes, which can be spread out over the coming weeks and months. This is an Annular Eclipse, i.e., the shadow of the Earth does not fully cover the disc of the Moon; therefore, not as dramatic as a total eclipse.
The Full Moon / Eclipse will be directly opposite Mercury. A planet that gets involved with an eclipse gives some clue about what sorts of effects the eclipse will have. In this case, we can expect forthcoming changes to Mercury's significations, such as The Media, Communications, Information, Explanations, etc.
Venus is exactly opposite Jupiter on Friday, March 25. The planet of Romance, Harmony, and Agreement, will be at 22 deg Aquarius, while the planet of Wisdom, Optimism, & Increase will be @ 22 deg Leo. Normally this is a good pattern, but in this case, there is a third planet involved:
Saturn will form an exact T-square with Venus-Jupiter. Since Saturn is at 22 deg. Scorpio, it is exactly at the midpoint between the two benefic planets, and therefore interfering with the exchange of energy. The potential for Agreement, Harmony, Expansion, etc. gets blocked by the planet of Harsh Reality.
Saturn begins its retrograde period on March 25. The planet of Structure, Responsibility, Limitation, Time & Delay, etc., will appear to go backwards in the zodiac for the next 4 -1/2 months, until August 13. The retrograde period increases the significations of Saturn, resulting in more Delays, Burdens, Harsh Circumstances, etc. Since Saturn is together with Mars, planet of Conflict, the potential for Malefic Effects is increased in this sector of the zodiac during the coming months.
