MONTH IN MARCH 2014 is the New Moons in Pisces. As with all new moons it is a time of new beginnings. It is a time to start new projects, and put new plans into action, to say goodbye to the old and beckon in the new. It is a new moon, a new month, and a new season.
The New Moon is always the time to reset our intentions and begin anew; the energy is intensified and supported by having both the Sun and the Moon in the same sign. Boosting this energy into the collective level is greatly aided by having Neptune in its ruling sign of Pisces. Neptune hasn't been in its own sign for 165 years, about the time it was ‘discovered’ and brought into our awareness.
Since the start of the year we haven't had a single 'normal' moon phase, we had 2 new moons in January, no new moon in February and in March we have 2 new moons again. This will have had peoples emotions and moods thrown all over the place, a lot of people will not have been feeling themselves since the beginning of the year. When you get so many changes in cycles, it can be disorienting and loosening of the usual constructs and realities we carry. So, be fluid, go with the flow, stay buoyant, invite in the mysterious.
Welcome the chaos don't try and fight it. A lot of people will be feeling worn out and tired, if you are, this is the perfect time to find some rest, try and make some time to be on your own with a favorite book, movie or music, some indulgent snacks and a glass of your favorite drink, block out the world and recharge your batteries.
The Pisces New Moon holds magical healing power. We are in a profound cleansing and clearing cycle. Allow the deep emotions emerging from the unconscious to be healed. The message of this new moon is to find a balance, Knowing when to push and when to rest. Take a step back and look at everything more clearly. Now is the time to start clearing out junk, both in our homes and work and in our emotional lives. Expel negativity and try to let go of any bad thoughts and feelings by looking at how to improve any situations rather than just complain about them.
Let the healing waters of Pisces wash over your soul and heal you from the inside. Have a blessed New Moon, May the Goddess watch over you.

Loving our world, giving back to nature, and respecting the feminine — the mother — which has sustained us in more ways than we can possibly imagine, is not only our duty but will be our legacy.

Every Soroptimist worldwide must have March 8th marked in their global calendar; it is International Women’s Day, which has championed the achievement of women, past, present and future for the past 103 years.
Soroptimist International celebrates International Women’s Day at Club, Region, Union, Federation and International events.
This is a global day of celebration and reflection of women’s successes and achievements, economically, politically and socially. Notwithstanding, we are acutely aware that there remain many unacceptable barriers that limit women’s opportunities around the world.
That is why one key theme of International Women’s Day is “Inspiring Change”, challenging the status-quo and the fact that the world is still unequal. This is unacceptable for the 80,000 Soroptimists worldwide; we will continue to lobby governments, businesses, educationalists and those who influence society to promote change.
United Nations Women’s theme for International Women’s Day is “Equality for women is progress for all”. Soroptimists must and will “Inspire Change” for women and seek greater gender equality through education, learning opportunities, access to economic empowerment and the elimination of violence against women and girls. We must continue to strive tirelessly for equality and human rights for all; this has to be Soroptimist International’s focus, in particular for the Post-2015 Development Agenda after the Millennium Development Goals.
Communication channels are mega and provide opportunities for women and girls in all parts of the globe to inspire change. Consider and use these channels by beginning individually and at Club level.
As International President I ask all Soroptimists to embrace, salute and celebrate this significant global day. To embrace women and girls, to educate and inspire action within your communities, to transform the lives of women and girl whilst destroying the scourge of violence.
Soroptimist International President 2013-2015

THE ECONOMICS OF SEX ... Sex Is Not an 'Economy' and You Are Not Merchandise
What If Women Ruled the World?
.Mary Robinson Foundation - Climate Justice
Published on Mar 11, 2013
In a video to mark International Women's Day 2013, political analyst and former White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers asks: What if women ruled the world?
As a huge and growing body of research and experience makes clear, empowering women makes things better. Not perfect. But better. Business is more profitable. Governments are more representative. Families are stronger, and communities are healthier. There is less violence - and more peace, stability and sustainability.
Why? Well, it starts with the simple fact that women often experience life differently. And that experience affects the way we see problems - and think about solutions.
"Diversity is absolutely an asset," says Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund.
"With diversity you bring different ways of looking at the world, different ways of analysing issues, different ways of offering solutions. The sheer fact of diversity actually increases the horizon and enriches the thinking process, which is critical."
"I think it's fair to say that women are a little more collaborative in their approach overall, and a little less driven to conflict as opposed to driven to working out problems," says Janet Napolitano, the US Secretary of Homeland Security.
Mary Robinson, President of the Mary Robinson Foundation - Climate Justice (MRFCJ), says that women also bring an inter-generational perspective to their work. "We need to take decisions now that will make for a safer world for our grandchildren and their grandchildren, and I think women are more likely to do that when they come into positions of leadership."
