Happy Pisces season, stargazers! Are you ready to start writing a new chapter of your life? This March, we will experience several powerful planetary shifts that warrant some personal and plant-based preparation. 

On March 2, Mercury enters mystical Pisces. Keep a dream diary next to you while you sleep because we can expect to have vivid dreams early in the month. On March 7, there is a full moon in sharp Virgo, which urges us to reorganize our routines. On that same day, strict Saturn leaves Aquarius, enters Pisces, and asks for the structure to make dreams a reality. Saturn in Pisces should help give shape to creative processes. 

The Spring Equinox approaches on March 20, marking the astronomical first day of spring and an official energy reset for all of us. This is a wonderful time for reflection and manifesting your dreams and intentions for the new year.Spring brings us a renewed sense of hope and lightness. 

Finally, on March 23, Pluto moves out of organized Capricorn, where it has been for the last 16 years, and slowly enters its major transit to unpredictable Aquarius. While Pluto flirts with Aquarius this month, it won’t consistently transit the sign until late 2024, where it will stay for 20 years.

Governing significant, deep transformation, Pluto’s beginning shifts to Aquarius will bring us new ideas, themes, and focuses. With all that in mind, here are our favorite strains to guide you through the changing tides of life.

Welcome to March, Taurus! Grab a cozy blanket, roll up a joint, and let’s get into it.

This month, you might feel a bit more grounded than usual, which is your vibe, right? Your ruling planet, Venus, will move into your sign on the sixth, bringing a sense of peace and stability to your life. You might feel more in touch with your values and priorities, which helps when making decisions.

But beware of getting too comfortable and complacent! The new moon on the 13th presents an opportunity to set intentions for future achievements in the coming weeks. Don’t be afraid to push yourself outside your comfort zone, whether that’s trying a new strain of weed or taking on a new project at work.

The full moon on the 28th could bring some unexpected surprises, both good and bad. It’s important to stay adaptable and go with the flow, even if it’s not what you had planned.

Remember, Taurus, sometimes the best adventures are the unplanned ones. Stay chill, stay grounded, and enjoy the ride.

March strain: We all know Taurus love a little treat, and you definitely deserve it. When you’re hankering for a good time and a little indulgence, roll up some Hidden Pastry, a 20% THC hybrid that is perfect for relaxing while keeping that happy buzz.
