March tarot spread
Soul Cards Tarot by Kristine Fredheim

March is coming in with a grounded energy and aspects of strength and stability. We are being asked to hold steady and stand strong in our truth and confidence so that we can manifest with greater ease and clarity. There is a balance of masculine and feminine energies coming in this month, and each lends its own supporting energies to the tasks at hand. The spread tells a story: beginning with The Magician, we focus our thoughts on what we want to create, then move forward into the intellectual, idea-driven energy of the Queen of Swords, where we tap into visualization, goal-setting, and planning before heading into the energy of the enthusiastic, adventurous King of Wands, who adds a sprinkling of good fortune and delivers manifestations into the physical before sending us to the prosperity and success inherent in the Four of Pentacles.

The Knight of Pentacles, along with the Four of Pentacles, The Emperor (the number four card in the Major Arcana), and Strength (which doubles the four to bring us eight, its placement in the Major Arcana) tells its own story of co-creative partnerships, especially that of our earth selves with our divine aspects and allies, who are echoing our efforts in the realms of the unseen—doubling our efforts, as it were. This points to potent manifestations and unlimited abundance. Our efforts are magnified and echo throughout the dimensions in which we are creating. It also indicates that our previous efforts are being compounded with the current energies to bring forth tremendous success and prosperity. The Page of Swords comes in as guidance from the Universe, encouraging us to pursue our interests with diligence and nurture our curiosity with further study as we strengthen our knowledge. This provides us with the stable footing upon which we can build something that will last.

Q1: What is the overall energy of March? The Emperor & Knight of Pentacles

The Emperor is a strong, powerful leader who can represent a foundational aspect of a situation, manifestation, goal, or relationship, or someone who is key in this way. Represented by the number four, he epitomizes strength and stability. With the Knight of Pentacles, who tells of slow, steady growth that provides support for the long term, these two make a powerful combination that brings in grounding and stabilizing energies for the month. Being that manifestation is in focus this month, as the first week’s energy is represented by The Magician, this combination indicates that we are supported by universal energies that are bringing in stabilizing forces to provide us with a stronghold that will support our dreams and goals and all we are creating. This pair points to slow, steady, stable growth as we are building something that will last.

Q2: Week 1: The Magician

Staying focused on our goals is key this week. We are creating as never before, reaching new heights in our ability to manifest. We are alchemists of own reality. Keeping our thoughts focused on the positive and ensuring that our beliefs align with our desires will take us far. Kick out those doubts! They have no place in your future. In fact, any negative belief on any subject will block your manifestations or slow them down. This week, let’s focus on the magic. Allow yourself to dream big and see yourself in your highest and best reality. Remember that you’re not stuck with one goal; just as energy is never static, neither are we, and that means our goals are always evolving as we identify new preferences and make adjustments to previous ones.

Q3: Week 2: Queen of Swords

From the ideation phase to setting clear goals, the Queen of Swords is a powerful creator. She is a visionary who brings dreams to life and visions into reality. This queen is powerful and her inner strength shines through in all she does. The Strength card appearing in week four echoes her energy throughout the rest of the month. This is the week to use your mental power to focus and gain clarity on your goals and dreams, without limiting your manifestations by getting too specific. Think getting into the energy of the end result—seeing yourself driving the new car without giving any attention to how you got it (leave that part up to the universe; it knows the fastest route to get you to where you want to be, and that is probably not a route you would even be aware of). The Queen of Swords lends energies of clarity and focus that support us in visualizing this week.

Q4: Week 3: King of Wands

The King of Wands is enthusiastic and his adventurous nature is evidence of his association with the fire element. Fire is associated with the will, freedom, choice, and manifestation. This card brings a dose of good fortune and indicates success and imminent manifestations. Dreams and visions may spring to life this week, and they appear even quicker when we stand behind them with confidence and belief that they will come about. The fours, Strength, and the Knight of Pentacles in this spread lend viability to the manifestations that the king’s energy brings about. The energies this week support the idealism, zest for life, enthusiasm, honesty, and integrity this king represents. This card also carries aspects of individuality and personal freedom, so the manifestations coming forth this week may also help to support our personal sovereignty.

Q5: Week 4: Four of Pentacles & Strength

The Four of Pentacles in this spread represents solid foundations for our manifestations, success and stability in the material realm, and prosperity in all aspects of our lives. This empowers us with the strength to be able to elevate in other areas of our lives from a place of comfort and stability. The strength in this area helps us to be stronger in others, and supports us as we walk our path and serve our purpose and mission for this lifetime. These cards together are also an indication that we are supported in all regards by our allies in the nonphysical. This support is a stronghold of energy that boosts us and supports us in our earthly lives. Through our inner strength, and our belief in ourselves and in our goals and purpose, we reach a greater place of stability and build from that strong foundation. A strong foundation ensures that we can build higher and reach new heights.

Q6: Guidance from the Universe for March: Page of Swords

The page shows us branching off into something new, starting fresh, and perhaps even shifting our perspective to gain greater clarity. We are encouraged to pursue intellectual studies and follow our curiosity to boost our knowledge and understanding about things we are interested in, remembering that we are interested in them for a reason. Our interest could be a cue from our higher self, who places guideposts to lead us toward our mission and our goals. We are asked to trust ourselves and have confidence yet set ego aside and pursue our quest with authenticity. This card may indicate that we are ready to expand and embrace new challenges.

Whatever you are working on, whatever your goals, now is the time to dream big and aim high. We are elevating further and faster than ever before. Believing in ourselves and moving forward with confidence, our sights set on the end result, will get us to our goals quicker than we ever imagined was possible. We are powerfully supported by a loving universe, which asks us to be clear and focused in answer to the question: What are you manifesting?

As the fourth day of the second month, today brings in strong stabilizing energies. We may notice shifts taking place in our lives, minds, and hearts that are helping to strengthen us on all fronts. Energy that begins in the heart or the mind can flow outward to inform the rest of our lives. We can bring in this energy more strongly and help to integrate it within us by flowing and allowing ourselves to receive it, and by releasing resistance. Today, noticing where we feel blocked or what feels out of alignment can be a gift; as we notice this resistance, we can set the intention to clear it and welcome in energies of ease, grace, and allowing.

Forgiveness helps us to find closure and stability within ourselves. Forgiving ourselves and others is strongly in focus today. Forgiveness first takes place within the heart. We can decide to forgive, and it is good to set this intention, but forgiveness is not complete until it is felt and all aspects of the past released. We can gain clarity on what we may still be holding onto that isn’t serving us, on what we need to let go of, by writing it out. We are guided to follow our instincts regarding steps we can take to gain closure. When we forgive, it also helps to clear karma and allows us to move on and exit cycles in our lives.

All of the numbers in today’s date add up to eleven, and two. Eleven being a gateway number that contains energies of passing through into something new, and two holding energies of partnership and cooperation, we may be working with our team in spirit, with our higher self, and divine allies as we work toward moving into the next steps in our lives. We may be seeking a higher path, and today we can gain clarity on our next steps through meditation, tuning into the intuition, and listening to the heart. Noticing the thoughts, memories, and fragments of song that arise unbidden in the mind can also provide clarity, as they may be messages from our support team.

Mantra: I breathe in the highest light and exhale all that does not serve my highest good. I breathe in the light and love of pure divine consciousness.

As the twenty-eighth day of the first month, today may see us strengthening in our partnerships and building momentum toward our goals. We benefit from continuing to send positive energy to our manifestations. Today brings an aspect of culmination as energetically, certain things are beginning to wrap up and we may see the end of cycles, indicated by the ten in today’s date (2+8) and the subsequent beginning of new cycles of learning, growth, and experiences. To better gain a sense of closure before embarking on something new, we are guided to gather our thoughts to process and integrate what wisdom we can gain from the events and aspects that are ending now. This interim period is important as a time of processing, and possibly healing and integration, between phases or major life cycles. Long-held dreams and goals are gathering momentum and have the potential to manifest now. All we have to do is believe in them and let them in. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us sixteen and seven. Today especially, seven carries energies of good fortune and aspects of the intellect. We are encouraged to continue learning, growing, and expanding in our spiritual gifts as well as in our knowledge about them. Reading on any topics of interest is also indicated. Feeding our knowledge expands our horizons as it builds our understanding and opens up greater worlds of possibility. Flowing with changes and maintaining harmony in all that we do, including our relations with others, could be a key aspect today. We are reminded that we alone are in control of our choices, words, and actions. We get to choose how we respond to others. Regardless of someone’s behavior or words, we can always choose the higher ground. Today may find us needing to stay aligned, stay on our path, stay in our own energy, and not let ourselves get drawn into chaos or drama. Others may be acting from unhealed wounds and may be unconscious or unwitting players in the testing of our own resolve. We are asked to draw on our well of inner strength, which we have at our core as divine beings of light. We are reminded that all actions are rewarded accordingly.

Mantra: I have the power within me to stand strong in my truth and in my light. My greatest strength comes from love and compassion.

As the twenty-sixth day of the first month, today carries energies and aspects of partnerships, co-creation, harmony, and abundance. Through our harmonious relations with others, we create stability, which in turn provides us with a solid platform from which to build, reach higher, grow, and set our sights on loftier goals. We are strongly encouraged now to dream bigger, aim higher, and look to elevate ourselves more than ever before. What is the best version of yourself you have envisioned? Now go beyond that, above that, and see your best you, and then reach even higher for your even better you. We are always growing, always changing, always learning and we can always thrive, more and more continually. We are asked to release the mindset that if something is good, the other shoe will eventually drop. It doesn’t have to be that way. As creators of our own realities, we can create the life we want. If we set the intention that things will always get better for us, and nurture that with a repeated daily mantra, we can reinforce this as a habit which then becomes a belief. Mantras can be repeated in the mind throughout the day and can help us to establish new, positive thought patterns and beliefs. We can rewrite our thinking in this way, through consistency and focus. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us fourteen and five. These numbers indicate the strengthening of foundations in our lives and the manifestation of new opportunities and creations stemming from this more stable platform, which may be energetic or could have to do with our relationships (with ourselves, others, the divine), our perspective, our beliefs, our vibration, our goals, our spiritual gifts, and just about anything else in our awareness. Change is indicated that is either positive on its face or that brings about a release of what was not serving us in order to make room for what is better, stronger, and more aligned. We may be experiencing expansion, either in our manifested reality or spiritually and energetically, and we may be aware of this or not to varying degrees. There is an indication today of subtlety and we are guided to tune into our intuition without preconceived ideas, but simply tuning in and allowing what is available to us to flow into our perception and awareness. The subtleties may be developments behind the scenes and it could benefit us to notice and become aware of them as they are taking shape and solidifying so we can make adjustments and set new intentions where necessary. Tools like tarot and oracle cards can be helpful now in guiding us to new understandings and helping us to better understand what may be hidden or just out of view, as well as anything it would benefit us to prepare for. We are asked to release fear, as it is just an illusion and we attract whatever we focus on.

Mantra: My life is always improving in every way. Everything is always getting better for me. Everything is always working in my favor. I am blessed, I am protected, I am divinely guided.

As the twenty-fifth day of the first month, today may bring changes in partnerships and alliances. We may experience shifts regarding teamwork and in who we choose to work with, even as we are flowing into new experiences and opportunities and taking new paths. We may reach an unexpected fork in the road, before which we can pause to consider the best way to take. We are reminded that it is most often our first inclination or instinct that is correct, right, true, and best for us. We are being asked not to doubt or second-guess ourselves, and to avoid overanalyzing, as this can lead to ‘analysis paralysis’ and can muddy the waters of our clarity. We are guided to seek clarity and integrity in all that we think, do, and say. Continually seeking clarity will bring lightning flashes of insight and inspiration, and will facilitate a deep inner knowing and connection to the wisdom of the ages. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us thirteen and four. We can expect new developments and manifestations to enter our experience now. Today’s shifts and changes are tomorrow’s stronger foundations. We are building anew from a place of greater harmony and stability that allows us to build higher than ever before. We are facilitating our own growth and strength through the new creations that we built on integrity as we give them a stable, secure base. We may become aware of seemingly small or minor actions we can take to facilitate strength, harmony, and improvements in our lives; know that the smallest action taken from a pure place of truth and integrity can have much further-reaching consequences than we could imagine. Establishing intentions for our own strength, harmony, and stability goes far now. As we are positioned at the beginning of a full-moon week, we are currently in a growing phase. This week powerfully supports our healing through clearing and release of what does not serve us to make room for new developments and manifestations. Full moons are powerful times of healing. We are guided to be our own best allies by continuing on our healing path and cutting through any weeds that may appear along the way, with the ferocity, strength, and integrity of a lion, yet staying grounded in our truth and in our light. We are guided to stay on our path, to stay true to ourselves, and to not let anything or anyone lead us astray or knock us off our path.

Mantra: It is easy for me to make the decisions that are right and true and best for me. I trust my instinct and connect easily to my intuition.

As the twenty-third day of the first month, today carries energies of change and manifestations coming about through partnerships. We may be becoming aware of opportunities and possibilities for our future that were previously outside of our awareness or that were just beneath the surface. As new possibilities and directions for the path ahead become unveiled, we are beginning to consider our future in ways we may not have seen before. Manifestations are imminent as we continue making strides toward our goals and intentions, and as we allow them to flow to us. Twenty-three also indicates progress and forward movement, and today we may see pieces falling into place that advance us or our goals and aspirations.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us eleven, and two. Eleven is a gateway number that brings powerful energies of upleveling, expansion, and increases in our awareness. It can also find us passing into new experiences and cycles, upleveling, and advancing. Keeping our thoughts, beliefs, expectations, and overall outlook positive is highly important now, as this helps to ensure we keep moving in the right direction. Today and in the near future, we may see advancements and significant progress in things that matter to us. We may be meeting new people and forging new partnerships that help to support, strengthen, and fortify us, and that remind us of our value. Gifts and abilities are in focus now; we may be discovering new gifts or aspects of currently active abilities that bring new facets to our awareness and that help us to advance. As we progress, we are guided to lift up others and help them to advance as well. 

Mantra: I welcome insights, opportunities, and positive, supportive partnerships. I welcome growth, joy, and abundance.

As the twenty-second day of the first month, today brings in strong energies of unity and partnership. We are asked to navigate our day with compassion toward others and to practice nonjudgment, freeing ourselves from any preconceived notions surrounding others, as we are all on a unique path. When we come together in harmony and peace, we can create strong foundations and build from a stronger platform; this is indicated by the number four (where 2+2=4). Four lends aspects of balance, strength, and stability that result from collaborations, whether those are with friends, coworkers, partners, or our allies in the nonphysical. We can create great things when we work together in harmony.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us ten, a number of completion. The number one lends aspects of inspiration, focus, creativity, new beginnings, joy, and opportunities, and zero is associated with the divine force of creation, with Source. One aspect of ten is our co-creation with the divine, which we are always in partnership with as physically manifested aspects of the divine in human form. Today is an especially potent day to focus our energies on manifestations in partnership with the divine. Visualizing our goals can be a powerful catalyst that launches our dreams into the stratosphere and brings them back down to earth in manifested form. Today’s date also carries an aspect of things lining up for us, with the 20 21 22 aspect. At its basis, this sequence indicates our partnership with the divine (0), which creates new manifestations and opportunities (1) that build upon and strengthen our future, giving us further stability (2+2=4), from which we stand on solid ground to reach higher and dream bigger than ever before. Today we are reminded that where thoughts go, energy flows. 

Mantra: I send blessings, love, light, and gratitude to my supportive partnerships. I welcome new beginnings and opportunities to flow to me.

As the nineteenth day of the first month, today ushers in energies of endings and subsequent beginnings. Changes may be happening rapidly or just under the surface, shifting things energetically in preparation for their physical outcome. Transformation is indicated all around. Notice where your interests are being guided today and trust your intuition, especially when it comes to making decisions. You may find yourself facing choice points; trusting in your highest guidance to make the decisions that are best for you will yield the most positive outcomes. We are reminded that everything is always working out for us, and that the universe is conspiring in our favor, regardless of how things appear to be on the surface. Today, we may become aware of hidden meanings and forces at work, even within the seemingly ordinary and unimportant. We may be rewriting our thinking in ways that benefit us. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us sixteen and seven. Sixteen brings energies that facilitate harmony, balance, peace, and love. We may see these energies increasing in our personal and career relationships. Leaning into the warmth of community and familial support provides us with strength and solid foundations, a springboard from which to launch new manifestations from a place of steady footing that ensures our best success. With the seven bringing in energies of good fortune, we are sure to succeed. Happiness, growth, positive change, and welcome manifestations are on their way now. We will soon begin to see, if we have not already, amplified outcomes that bring us increased success and forward momentum in the things that matter to us. We are guided to trust where our interests lie and nurture ourselves intellectually, reading and pursuing courses of study that will broaden our horizons and enhance our future possibilities. 

Mantra: This day, I will make powerful improvements in things that are of importance to me. Today, I am advancing in ways that support my highest path and purpose. I am rising up and elevating in every way.

As the fourteenth day of the first month, today sees us making progress and gaining solid footing in matters of importance. Meditation, grounding, and spending time in nature are allies to our strength and improvement, and help fortify us energetically. Our dreams are being made manifest, and we are benefitted by trusting this and strengthening in our faith that everything is working out according to our highest good. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us eleven, and two. Eleven is a gateway number that shifts us from one energy into another. Where we choose to focus our energy is key. When multiple ones appear, as with eleven, it is especially important to keep our thoughts positive. Underlying our thoughts are our beliefs, what we hold to be true. Beliefs can work in our favor or they can block us from receiving what we have asked for. We can rewrite beliefs by thinking new thoughts that benefit us and repeating them to ourselves throughout each day. “Everything is always getting better and better for me” is one example. Eleven and two also indicate partnerships, as we are co-creating with our higher selves and with others in the physical plane. We are also in partnership with our minds at all times. When we keep our energy strong and pure through meditation, prayer, creativity, allowing ourselves to experience joy, and doing what makes us happy, we are giving ourselves solid footing to stand on and energetically allowing the foundations of all that is good in our lives to strengthen. 

Mantra: I welcome improvements to me on all levels. I welcome alignment with my highest path and purpose, clarity, unconditional love, and compassion into my heart.

As the twelfth day of the first month, today carries a cyclic aspect. Twelve being related to cycles and also manifestations, new beginnings, and opportunities through partnerships, we are embarking on a new phase that leverages our connections to yield fruitful abundance and pave the way for a new path ahead. The repeated ones and twos in today’s date strengthen the energies of co-creation, both with our partners and allies on the physical plane and with those in the nonphysical who are assisting and supporting us on our journey. Twelve shows us growing and expanding as never before, reaching higher levels of consciousness as we continually reach for improvements in all areas. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us nine, a number that guides us to our own light. We are growing, expanding, upleveling, and achieving greater and higher ways of being, thinking, and doing, as we are growing in our ability to rise up above the constructs of this manifested earthly realm to see beyond the physical and beyond what is readily apparent. We are growing in awareness and in our ability to discern truth from fiction. As we elevate, we are sharing our knowledge with others in authentic ways. We are connecting more strongly to the truth of who we are and discovering our true nature as beings of light. Many of us are here at this time to assist in the awakening of the planet, and as we navigate the dark spaces, we are asked to hold strong and steady in our light, remembering that the light is infinitely more powerful than the darkness, as it is generative, it is growth and truth, it is reality and is stable. It does not destroy but generates, creates, produces. We are asked to remember this and that our true strength comes from within, from our divine light, when we need encouragement. Some of us are asked to be the light, and that may mean shining it into dark places. Staying strong and true to ourselves and holding steady to our truth is indicated now. We are asked to share the knowledge we discover through our own healing journey, as it may help others who are on similar paths, are trying to find their way, or are beginning to awaken.

Mantra: I call upon the Source within to expand within me. I call upon my inner strength and the divine wisdom within to guide me in all that I do.
