March Monthly Insight
Kimberly Hastings, March 1, 2023
The month of March is named after the Roman God of war, Mars. March was originally the first month of the Roman calendar until the addition of January and February.
March 6th is the Jewish holiday of Purim. During the Persian Empire, the leader of the Jewish people, Mordechai, refused to bow to the Prime Minister, Haman. As a result, Haman convinced King Ahasuerus to issue a decree for the execution of the Jewish people. Unbeknownst to the King his new wife, Esther, was Jewish. Once he found out, Haman was hanged and the King issued a new decree, allowing the Jewish people to defend themselves against their enemies. Today, this festival is celebrated by reading the book of Esther, followed by a feast. Participants are encouraged to give gifts of money to at least two people and a gift of two types of food to one person.
March 17th is St. Patrick’s day, a celebration of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Saint Patrick was kidnapped at 16 and forced into slavery. He later escaped and worked to convert the Irish to Christianity, establishing monasteries, churches and schools. The holiday of St. Patrick’s day celebrates Irish culture. Today’s festivities include wearing green/shamrocks, eating corned beef and cabbage and drinking green beer.
Pisces continues to rule until March 20th with its compassionate energy until Aries takes over on the 21st. As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries brings a sense of renewal, encouraging us to take action. March’s birth flower is the daffodil, which is one of the first flowers to bloom in spring. They represent rebirth and new beginnings and can be a symbol of forgiveness. March’s birthstones are Aquamarine and bloodstone. Romans believed that aquamarine provided protection for sailors and those traveling by water, as well as bring good luck in catching fish. Today, Aquamarine brings peace and is soothing to those with quick tempers. Bloodstone is stone of bravery and strength. Ancient Egyptians believed that bloodstone increased strength, assisting the wearer in defeating their enemies. Today, Bloodstone is also used a a good luck charm.
Spiritual Uplifts Magical Moon for March
Kimberly Hastings, March 1, 2023
March’s full moon is called the “Worm Moon,” named by the Dakota and other Native American tribes to reflect the time of year that earthworms began to reappear as the warmer temperatures thawed the frozen grounds. The reappearance of the worms brought robins and other birds such as crows. As a result, the more norther tribes referred to this moon as the “Full Crow Moon.” The tribes believed the cawing of the crows symbolized the end of the winter season.
Full Moon: March 7th 7:42 AM EST
Last Quarter: March 14th 10:10 PM EST
New Moon: March 21st 1:26 PM EST
First Quarter: March 28th 10:33 PM EST
Full Moon Ritual for Changing Luck
This ritual will help to change your luck by removing obstacles and focusing your intentions for manifestation.
You will need the following:
- 2 white candles; Van-Van 7 Day candle;
- Ancestor sage; Gold Oil;
- Labradorite, Rhyolite or Tanzania Sunstone crystal.
- Pen and paper.
First, cleanse your space using the Ancestor Sage. This bundle includes white sage, which removes any negative energies, while burning the ancestor money clears up any karmic debt you may have. Next, set up your altar by placing the white candles at the top of your altar, one on the left and the other on the right, with your Van-Van candle in the middle. The Van-Van candle not only protects, but removes obstacles in your way, bringing positive changes to your luck.
Place your chosen crystals furthest to the left end of the altar. Rhyolite is the stone of resolution, allowing us to find positive solutions to our problems and overcome obstacles and blockages. Tanzania Sunstone is a rare form of Sunstone that increases optimism and a positive outlook on life, attracting good fortune positive changes.
Next, take your pen and paper and make two columns. The first column will be any monetary goals you have (New job, increased savings, paying off debts, etc.) In the second column, list any goals standing in your way (Overspending, not enough income, time commitment, etc.).
Once you have completed your lists, light your white candles to call in your protection, then light your Van-Van Candle. Take your list and place under the Van-Van candle, anoint yourself with the Gold oil, and repeat the following:
“I have a plan and I am focused. All obstacles are released and my path is clear. The Universe is rich and money and prosperity flows easily to me. Mode it be.”
Allow your Love candle to burn for 7 days to seal your ritual. After the 7 days, take your crystals and place them in a green mojo bag, along with your list and a drop of Gold oil and carry with you. Apply the Gold oil to yourself as needed to continue the energies.

Daily and Weekly Horoscopes
Kimberly Hastings March 1, 2023
March 2023 is a 1 Universal Month, representing new beginnings, independence and determination. The most important revival is the Spring Equinox, which begins on March 22nd this year. During this time, we will shed the past and move forward to a bright future.
Last month, we reaped the rewards of all of our hard work and diligence over the past few months, leaving us with a feeling of accomplishment. This energy will carry over into this month, showing us that we can achieve whatever goals we set so long as we are consistent and put in the effort.
Conversely, if we didn’t see the exact results we were expecting, this is the time for self-reflection. The 7 of the Universal Year means that our focus this year will be inward. Did we put in as much time and effort as we should have? Was the outcome to be expected?
Try not to view this as focusing on the negative. When we take a honest view of where we are versus where we were, we will discover that we have grown and are in a much better place than before. This will motivate us to continue on our path. We can create and change our own luck in life if we are honest with ourselves and make the efforts necessary.
