Leprechauns, Four Leaf Clovers and Waterfalls are just a few of our favorite things. After all it means it's time for the luckiest month to be here, March. March brings with it the promise of gardening, warm(er) sunny days and new intentions, as we transition out of a cold cold winter into a warm welcoming spring! With spring around the corner there is so much to look forward to. There is so much to celebrate within this lucky month. It is a time to rejoice (or just party) and recharge. It's home to both the Pisces and Aries which means it's time to get wet and wild. These two astrological signs are known for their determination and passion, respectively. Babies born between March 1 and March 20 are known as optimistic Pisces, while those born after March 20 are officially spring babies members of the Aries sign. Aries are known for being fiery and passionate. Luckily, with all of this passion we get to celebrate one of the best creatures to grace this planet we live on, women. International Women's Day is March 8th and we could not be more excited. To celebrate Mahana will be doing a special give away for the special women in your life. So stay on the look out for that as you wont want to miss this one!
With all of this passion and waterfall happening it is nice to know there is a balance. The birthstone of March is Aquamarine. It is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go. In ancient lore, Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids, and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness and protection. It was also considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness.
What does a wet passionate March also bring, something new of course! And no we are not talking about babies but, There is a new moon on March 6th. This is a perfect time to cleanse and recharge your crystals. When the new moon is upon us it is a chance to renew our yearly resolutions and dispel anything that is no longer serving us. A perfect milestone, the solstice new moon is a time to reflect whether we are on track or falling at bay with our goals and overall self.

Let us not forget unless we want to get pinched, hhmmm, it is also the month to honor St. Patty. He successfully converted Ireland to Christianity.
