March by Vanessa Barklay

Here is the 3rd page of my Calendar representing not only the main star sign but the meaning of the month, this one being March…

Named March after the word Martias in Latin which relates to Mars, the Roman God of War, the planet Mars sits in the background with it’s 2 moons Phobos and Deimos nearby. It is the month of the fish, Pisces and I have used my own mermaids to represent them as they lay in the shallow water, Pisces being a water sign.
The month of March is known as earthy month in Finland and as usual I have added in the meaning by the earthy colours I have used. The planet Mars and it’s moons dominates the sky but also can be seen the old ruling planet Jupiter and also the new ruling planet Neptune.
March, the 3rd month of the year in modern times…
Here is January…

This one is February…

Now, March…
