On March 5th we move into a full moon in Virgo, bringing a responsible, orderly energy to the table. Then, just after the Spring Equinox (on March 20th), the 21st of March, 2023 will bring a new moon in Aries with a wilder, more vibrant excitement to balance things out. Read on to learn how to work with these energies.

March Full Moon + Crystal Guidance

The full moon in Virgo on March 5th will welcome some powerful energies of transformation, particularly in the personal healing arena. If you’re noticing issues of giving and receiving, accomplishing tasks, and knowing your inner self at this time, it’s the Virgo full moon shining some light on where you can heal and restore. Virgo is humble, responsible, and reliable, so notice where those patterns might be coming up for you now. 

In particular, Virgo energy can be meticulous, detailed, and even analytical. If you find yourself nit-picking all over the place right now, take stock of where you can make some gentle adjustments. Be kind to yourself and breathe into any discomfort. If others are nit-picking you, know that they are being given the chance to heal. Reassess your boundaries as needed and see if you can send some extra love to those around you (where appropriate, of course). 

Additionally, Virgo might be revealing some ways you can balance your methods for giving and receiving care and support–mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. If you set some abundance-related intentions at February’s new moon in Pisces, check in with them and see where you can prune or adjust. If you’re seeing the results already, don’t take them for granted!

March Full Moon Crystal Guidance

Malachite Crystal

Malachite is a lovely green stone that resonates deeply with the heart chakra. It’s wonderful for releasing old emotions which we tend to store in the body as trauma. 

Allow some malachite to soothe these feelings from your body, especially as things might feel heightened right now. Wearing a malachite necklace or bracelet can also protect from negative energies and the toxic emotions of those around you–just don’t forget to cleanse your malachite regularly as you use it! You can also meditate with some malachite on your chest and allow any difficult emotions to work themselves free.

March New Moon + Crystal Guidance

The new moon in Aries on March 21st will continue our transformative theme, as Aries will ask us to set intentions surrounding our passions and pet projects. What are you called to set in motion? The new moon in Aries is a great time to write down these intentions and then take action. Aries is exciting, passionate, and sometimes demanding, so tapping into these qualities might give you the boost you need to take that leap. 

Aries is known for its commanding presence and tendency to just go for it. If you’ve been holding back about anything, now might be just the time to set that thing in motion. If others around you seem overbearing or self-centered right now, take a look at what they’re triggering in you. Maybe you can take some initiative, too. 

Since this is a new moon (initiation) in the sign of Aries (initiation) so near the Spring Equinox (also initiation!)…it’s a powerful time to take action. You can initiate that next step on your journey. Ask yourself what that looks like, and then go for it! Aries is represented by a ram for a reason. You are allowed to take life by the horns now–if you’ve been waiting for permission, consider this your permission slip. 

New Moon Crystal Guidance

Pyrite Crystal

Pyrite is a powerful stone for courage, optimism, and drive. If you need a little extra confidence putting your intentions in place, allow pyrite to give you that added boost. 

Pyrite is also known as “fool’s gold,” because it looks like gold and has often been mistaken for it. If your intentions have to do with money, pyrite is an especially useful tool. Setting up an abundance grid or altar and including some pyrite might be just the thing for you now.
