You start the month out with a new moon in your house of the hidden, so if you’ve told a white lie to get out of a social function or have been doing a covert business deal (or an intimate one!) or have been sworn to secrecy over a confidential matter, “faire attention” as this could slip out when you are least prepared. Alternatively you may scream private information from the rooftops (because you are a tad unstable emotionally at the present time with a number of planets in your 12th house).
It’s a tricky time, but chances are you want to lay low and brood and mull over your (perceived) shortcomings - or where you tripped up - and why many of your sign have been dealing with some kind of “fall out”. This could be family-related (a War of the Roses scenario) although thankfully with Jupiter is soon to go direct (on the 6th) in your house of home and family, this will help pour oil on any troubled waters within your family and domestic scene.
However Mars goes retrograde at the beginning of March (and will stay that way until the 19th May) so I’m pretty certain you will have a few “set to’s and angry exchanges in March and especially in April.
In some instances - particularly with Saturn in your house of divorce - there can be a complete dismantling (or restructuring) of a number of your key connections (business, personal etc). At the very least you will encounter power plays, frustrations, emotional struggles and even misunderstandings. Mercury is still in post shadow phase until the 20th so you may well find yourself at cross-purposes until then, and with April’s planetary storm looming, there is a testing journey ahead.
That said, if you can channel this energy in a positive way (as opposed to just head bashing your adversaries) then you can literally “fire up” and/or drive a business deal to completion. In any intimate relationships that have lost a spark, you can “fire it up” also…or it can combust.
With Uranus helping you to lose touch of sensitivity and sensibility when it comes to your key relationships, you may not recognize leeway, patience, support and understanding - much less acknowledge it!
Saturn also turns retrograde until July, so if you’re trying to get a joint business venture off the ground, you may encounter delays, or have to wait to hear on funding, loans, or any kind of funds that come from another, including Estate money.
Male or female you may find your libido is a bit “less interested” than usual and that may be stress-related (or some other health issue) that becomes apparent around the time of the full moon in Virgo mid month.
On the other hand this may be the incentive to get in shape, give up drinking (or whatever “reformatory” behavior you feel impelled to do at this time).
As this also affect your daily routines and work, you might even toss in a job on a whim; but for the majority of Rams, it’s likely that this has brought a conclusion to some aspect of your working life or even a home project (or that testing issue that has been ongoing for a while).
You will be feeling a tad ratty or unsettled up until the third week, so you may as well throw all your energies into trying to “get your house in order” (whatever that means for you in your circumstances).
Once the Sun enters your sign in the third week, you will start to get your mojo back and the new moon in your sign on the 30th rounds off the month very nicely.
Whilst all signs should tread water until April is passed (the perfect storm astrologically-speaking) as a cardinal sign you’re potentially in the firing line. Batten down the hatches.
You start the month out with a new moon in your house of groups, organizations, VIPs, mentors and friends and you’ll be thinking more about your friends (and what some of them mean to you). It’s a good time to make a conscious effort to become more sociable and pick up the phone or write a message to anyone you haven’t be in contact with a while.
In other words let people know that they mean something to you, and of course at your place of work, this is a sensational time to network amongst your colleagues as going out of your way to be accommodating and friendly will take you far both professionally and personally.
If you are so inclined (and you have the time), join a social /sporting or cultural club, take up a language or better yet, undertake something that is humanitarian in context.
You’ve been out of the loop socially for a while, and at the mercy of others or subjected to faulty communications, draining situations and any number of “odd” situations courtesy of Neptune and most recently Mercury retrograde.
As I will be mentioning to all signs, April is a big month (although not being a cardinal sign you can probably dodge a cosmic bullet) but by the third week of March you are in reflective mood and it’s a clearing slate time (getting ready for your annual solar return at the end of April).
So you may as well initiate the process now and give some thought as to where you would like to be positioned in the upcoming months (in areas of your life) and in the last week you will be making at least one major resolution. It’s quite clear that some area of your life is going to be impressively changed – it will be an ambitious step.
The new moon in Pisces at the start of the month is also in the house that rules hopes and wishes, so it’s a good time now to see if any of them are unrealistic or need some adjustment.
But as much as you can, get out and about and make lots of contacts, within your neighborhood, family – in fact everyone – but it’s going to be a very sociable time for you ahead.
If you have children you are likely to be the chauffeur/chaperon - running around after them (and it may be via school-related functions that you meet new friends).
If you’ve been feeling a bit “out of it” (Siberia anyone) then it’s time to get amongst it and belong to a “like minded” group – just work out which one is the right “fit” for you.
Mars is retrograding from the beginning of March (right through until May) and any work or health routines that you put in place earlier on in the year can now be revisited.
Perhaps you joined a gym but haven’t crossed the threshold as yet, but by the same token don’t suddenly try and take on the world and wear yourself out with exhaustion.
Mars is going to put more pressure on your daily routines and cause you to burn the candle at both ends - and also test your patience.
No matter whether you employed, are going for interviews (or work alone), there will be more frustrations than usual so try and bite your tongue when you’ve “had enough” and simply pace yourself to try ease the pressure. Don’t see it as a failure and don’t stress; do what you can, when you can, as quality not quantity wins the day.
Besides Mars is quite discerning in apportioning energies, so you will be at your most effective best.
Saturn has just gone retrograde so some ongoing “issues” that you’ve been having in one (or more) of your key relationships will be back on the agenda (until late July).
It may be a subconscious fear to “reveal all” in your close relationship (for fear of exposure, vulnerability or disapproval). Certainly your closest one-to-one relationships (family, ex’s, current, close friends etc) will go through some issues and if there is an underlying problem that you thought you have been able to evade or ignore, it will be revisited in the next few months.
Mid month there is a full moon in Virgo (in your house of pleasure, fun, love, romance, creativity and children) and you may end a hobby, a love affair, a course of IVF - or you could fall deeper in love or discover you are pregnant.
Full moons are usually completions, but you wouldn’t break up if you were in love – au contraire you would “complete” the courtship phase and decide to commit – you suddenly realize this is “The One (or this is definitely not).
This is the house of fun so obviously there will be a lot of energy directed towards excess (the glass is not just half full but overflowing) so you may want to exercise a little restraint with the revelries.
It’s also an emotional time and so in the house of love you may get emotional in your love life (and that can go either way).
Certainly it will be a stellar month career-wise and your boss, coworkers, friends and associates will all be telling you how wonderful you are. You’ll get more compliments, sales, a raise, testimonials, better stats...however it translates in your world (but it will be noticeable and for some quite an impressive breakthrough).
Sadly in the third week, you enter a bit of a down time (and that’s not so bad because you’ll be one of the “safer” signs in April and this period will only last until your birthday month on the 19th April). It will be a bit of an awkward passage, when you want to lie low - maybe from embarrassment, regret, sadness - or simply because you are not feeling very sociable.
At times you may feel a bit down, but given that you have a pretty good year ahead and a new moon in Taurus in April (that will “re-launch” you) it’s a small price to pay.
We all make mistakes - or life doesn’t always go quite according to plan - and if that’s the case, then it will be more “recognizable” now.
Also anything you’ve tried to keep a secret (or misrepresented) is bound to come out, especially around the new moon at the end of the month).
You start the month out with a new moon in Pisces in your house of life purpose, career, VIPs’ and authority figures and this can mean a variety of things depending on whether you are working, a student, or retired. It can include positive news or a development in a career (positive feedback from a Manager for example) or from a tutor. But this is not a time when you can hide away from the world, so if you misbehave in any way, it will be noticed; but by the same token if you perform well, then you will get the credit and rewards.
Any information that you don’t want known will come out (so hopefully you are trumpeting your triumphs and not hiding your misdeeds).
Next month is unpredictable (and can range from “interesting” to catastrophic), although as a Gemini you should be OK, and so it’s good use of March’s energy to set a life direction agenda for the rest of the year (and then ride through the wake of the waves that April will throw up).
Whilst you are somewhat more self-conscious and feeling a tad exposed, you are actually more driven to prove or “improve” yourself. So if there are some personality quirks or idiosyncrasies that have not served you well, this is one of the best opportunities all year to rid yourself of any self sabotaging characteristics.
Remain strong amidst any storms around you, and plant some seeds of progress in a career or a family matter and especially to do with your children.
Mars retrograding all month (until mid May) can help you to revisit some of these issues, so you can go back to a love affair, a relationship with a child, or a project that you may have set aside, and try and get it right this time.
If you have not been having fun or enjoying yourself as much as you should be doing as a Gem, or are not connecting well with your offspring, then this retrograde passage in your house of pleasure and children will help you to make more room for a social life, romance and parenting.
The fiery planet of course is likely to cause some heat and friction (especially in April) that will aggravate in the first instance and thus demand a response and activity. But at least you get to express yourself and maybe fix what is broken.
Saturn is also now retrograding in your daily affairs (and work and health house) so this also lets you get your “house in order” and attend to any problems in your life - including health problems or work related ones. In other words any problems that are impacting on the smooth operating of your daily life and there is one Elephant in the room (or a loyalty verdict/choice) that you have been holding off making.
Venus changing signs in the first week will make you more inclined and “open” to new ways of doing things and perhaps you can develop a different perspective on this matter. You might get the urge to travel or have more dealings with someone from overseas or at a distance; or you might fall in love with a foreigner or someone from a different cultural or religious background.
The full moon mid month in Virgo will be directing your focus towards your home and family (and personal life) and for some there is a pressing real estate, domestic or family-related matter that does require your undivided and clever attention (and probably a decision).
As full moons are completions and endings, you may end a relationship with a family member, sell the house, or end a problem with a family member. But as this is on the same axis as your life purpose and career, it’s quite possible (especially as a Gemini) that you decide to end a prolonged “home stay” and get out there and have some fun! Uranus is affecting your friendships and demanding you make changes in your social circle to include new and unusual people - free-spirited individuals as opposed to boring and/or conservative people - and it’s a personal “sorting out”.
However this energy might make you feel a bit lost, especially if you are a parent and you may wonder what your role is anymore especially if your children are absent geographically or emotionally (or both).
Either way, this full moon energy may make you relook at your life and meaning, purpose and direction.
It seems as if you resolve whatever you gave thought to mid month as the last week of March is very hectic, but at the same time you will be feeling more at peace with the world again.
You are popular, travelling, and going out a lot more with friends and social groups and this is further emphasized by the new moon in Aries at the end of the month.
This will kick start a time when your social life opens right up and you will be joining clubs and associations and perhaps even humanitarian and charitable groups. Old friends may be tossed out of your life (it’s a clean slate time) but you will replace them.
For most of the month Venus is giving you a different perspective and you’re more interested in people who are dissimilar, such as foreigners - or who are at opposite ends of your usual social spectrum.
There is also a new moon in your hopes and wishes house, so evidently it’s a time to make some new ones or do whatever it takes to realize some existing (but still unmet) life goals.
That mid month emotional unrest can be directed towards more pleasurable activities, but you will be taking a step back and seeing your role within your group and family more clearly.
If you’ve been self absorbed or overly pushing your own agenda, this will give way to a more universal view, and your concerns will be directed towards goals that repair, strengthen and encourage support to others (rather than tear them apart..).
You start the month out with a new moon in Pisces in your house of foreigners/ foreign travel, spirituality, education and the law and it’s likely that you have just returned from a trip overseas (or are still there), or about to head off on a trip!
Even if you are still on the same terra firma, your everyday routines are going to be slightly different and more exciting (or even more “exotic”) and that’s probably because you were so “itchy” to do something - that you did just that (as you were bored out of your gourd with the status quo).
So Cancers have entered March imbued with a spirit of adventure and hopefully feeling a bit “revived” about life, after a long spell of feeling either flat or depressed.
Many Cancerians are undergoing a paradigm shift in their thinking and letting go of old beliefs, and dreams, and developing a whole new perspective on life, love and “the whole shebang”. To say you have been disappointed or become cynical is an understatement, as other people have treated you like a Mushroom (kept you in the dark and fed you bullshit).
The good news is that although the new moon energy peak only lasts for a day or so afterwards, this does mark the beginning of a whole new cycle and you have Jupiter moving direct in your sign from the 6th. Mercury’s shadow finishes in the third week, so you are "up and running", and any information that has been withheld will start to filter through again.
There are a number of things that can manifest in this regard and you may have some legal issues do deal with, but don’t get too decisive over any long-term plans or life goals until April as a lot will remain up in the air (not to mention that April is a killer month for Cancer’s as a cardinal sign).
At the beginning of March, Mars turned retrograde (until May) so you can begin to go back and fix your home, family or your “inner” feelings – in order words the foundations of your emotional security.
Maybe you want to recreate your “home” (and that can be your literal home or your family relationships). Mars will help you focus the energy on this for nearly three months, so you can achieve a lot in this time.
Firstly you have to identify what you need to feel “secure” and I say this because with Mars in the picture you could do a “knee jerk” reaction (or actions) especially in April and there may be some consequences ahead - depending on the steps you may be tempted to take - so bear that in mind.
For many Cancerians this has to do with love and or children and with Saturn retrograding all month, you can “go back” and rework your connection with either a love affair or your children. However being a Crab who “withdraws” when upset, you might restructure your approach and decide to withdraw entirely and Venus is certainly pressing your buttons in this regard.
For the majority of the month (after the 5th) your emotions will be more intense and that can be within any of your interactions (sexual, with a love interest, with your children, at work..) and you will be feeling more needy, vulnerable and anxious.
Thankfully Venus is going to “pare down” Mars and make you more inclined to pour oil on any troubled waters, so you will be a lot more cooperative and malleable (although this maybe to your disadvantage) as you can be a sucker when it comes to being needed.
Thankfully Jupiter turns direct in your sign towards the end of the first week, and that will make everything a whole lot better. Emancipation is the key word - emotional and financial - and the majority of Cancerians are already well entrenched in this process. The Uranus Pluto squares that have dragged you kicking and screaming towards emotional and financial independence will allow you some poetic justice next month (or is that payback?) but all your ducks are in a row. That said, life really does sometimes do full circles…
The full moon in Virgo mid month could have you dealing with a sibling - either directly or indirectly - and as this is the energy of “conclusions”, it could be the end of the relationship, of a shared issue, or of a disagreement (where you “kiss and make up”).
This is also the house of communication, so you could also have to deal with a flood of communications, but with Mercury still in shadow phase (until the third week) it may be difficult to make yourself properly understood, and vice versa.
With Venus in your 8th house from the 5th March, your emotions will be heightened and so what you feel you will say, but it’s probably a good thing to let others know your true feelings.
There will be a key document or communication exchange before the end of the month, or you may need to undertake a trip unexpectedly.
The last week of March is when life starts to get very “real” (and especially in April) and you will be giving a lot of attention and thought to where you are going in life.
There is no way you are going to accept second best, or the crumbs of life now; you want what you deserve - and you’re not going to stop until you get it - whether that has to do with your reputation, money owed, the truth told or a better quality of life.
You’ve learnt a hell of a lot about life and people (and agendas and motivations) in the past few years and now you are better equipped to make some informed decisions (and the necessary changes/action).
April will be a “defining” month, but you are thinking long term and of the future with a capital F - the “first day of the rest of your life” kind of thinking (although nothing will be crystal clear until after April).
This is a new “era” in your career, life direction or how you are dealing with someone in authority. Especially in the last week (and unquestionably in April) there will be a lot of rumors, and maybe even a scandal.
If you’ve played it straight, you’re in a very good position (and if haven’t, there can be a sting in the tail in April), but you’re much more of a realist about life now.
You’ve had to kiss goodbye to some of your expectations of fairness, honor and decency….and in some cases are literally starting again.
That’s a good thing for you – liberation - and the Cosmic energy will provide a soul renewal and make you more aware of what’s still possible.
You start the month with a new moon in Pisces in your house of joint resources and sex and you will have loads of sexual energy. This is a good energy (not just because you particularly like sex) but it’s also a time when you will feel even more like the King/Queen of the jungle – although your focus will be on one particular member of your tribe…
You want to get to really know someone, it’s not just lust, but love, the soul mate stuff, and you’re very into sharing your feelings and your resources.
Perhaps you buy a house with someone, cohabitate and do joint bank accounts, or you go into business with someone (or just exchange bodily fluids). But this is a stellar month to move any relationship forward, with a current partner, an ex, someone you want to be with or a business partner.
You might get a loan or financing from an organization or you discover that you owe someone else money! Money owed, shared or due are all likely areas of focus.
This new moon falls in an intense house, one that rules transformative processes so you won’t be skipping the surface of life. You want to know everything profoundly.
Mars retrogrades on the first day of March., so between now and mid May, it’s a great time to attend to your communication skills and this is even more pertinent to you with Uranus playing havoc with your outlook.
Mars brings fire, so that polite chat could escalate into an all-out verbal slinging match (and people will be pushing your buttons more than usual).
Getting your ideas into a constructive unit may be harder also – in other words figuring out what you want – so expect stops, starts, u-turns, go slows and changes of heart (and not only because Mercury is in shadow phase). That will finish in the third week of March, but your “moving staircase” (kaleidoscope?) of ideas will continue until mid May.
If you can formulate some concrete ideas, of course the energy of Mars can do wonders for your negotiation skills (just so long as you don’t ram the point home) as your patience is almost non-existent.
Try and stay the course for the next three months (and April will be tricky), but if you can, Mars generally will direct the energies in the right quarters and ensure success.
Saturn retrograding may make you feel a bit wobbly and insecure, especially if you didn’t feel that you had the necessary support in your formative years. Those latent insecurities will bubble up to the surface now (and won’t help you overly in being assertive or being well equipped to protect your own interests until July).
However if you’ve achieved a lot in life (career, friends etc) and your home life is solid, then this retrograde will not be an overly unsettling passage.
By the same token if you felt “hung out to dry” growing up - and your life is in chaos - then you will need to address certain areas where you lack confidence.
Venus all month will make you try too hard, so watch out for that, and if you don’t get recognition and support (but instead criticism or negativity) than it will play with your head (and confidence) and you will start to think you are what other people project onto you - for good or for bad.
If your love life is not working this will become a big issue for you now and you’ll be pursing all avenues, (ex’s, potentials, online dating et al) to bring love back into your life.
The full moon in Virgo mid month brings this energy to a head, so you will be dealing with your love life, your sexuality and who is calling the shots - and who is giving more - and receiving less (hint, it’s probably you!).
Hopefully this full moon will bring you the epiphany that your emotional security matters just as much as anyone else’s, perhaps even more so!
Money and debt also figures, but I think the majority of Lions will be tending to their love lives and emotional needs (and grappling with feelings of self worth for much of the month).
For all Leo’s what you own (and how successful you are - or are not) are paramount in terms of how you are feeling about yourself and life.
In the last week of March, you will cheer up again and dig yourself out of your emotional well, and as you love travel, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if many Leo’s are roaming the global prairies (or at least planning to).
The new Moon in Aries at the very end of the month supports this new way of thinking, and you may decide to take up a language course, travel, join a cult or a religion or do a MBA (for example).
One way or another you want to expand your horizons - and your outlook - and go back to doing your favorite past time (pushing the limits of life and “living on the edge”).
Some will have to deal with a legal matter - and get served with a writ or break the law in a foreign country - so watch out!). Others will get some kind of sanction, the green light on a business project (perhaps in a foreign market) or residency/visa approval. Both this month and April will be significant in terms of change, travel and expansion.
You start the month out with a new moon in Pisces in your house of relationships, so it doesn’t taking a rocket scientist to figure out your focus (or in which area the new beginnings/new era of your life lies).
Relationships of course can be with a loved one, family, and friends or in business (and not to mention those who can’t stand your guts)
At least with this house you know who those people are; it’s not like the 12th where it can be the smiling assassin and you have no idea until it’s too late. This may be a family member (especially a sibling), spouse, or coworker, ex lover or ex friend).
So it goes without saying that it’s a great time to start a new relationship - or to start again in an old one - and as your powers of persuasion are elevated, if you put your mind and heart to something, you can swing them over to your way of thinking.
Issues of sharing and partnership and improving existing and past relationships are all factored into the equation (and yes, turning enemies into supporters and turning negatives into positive aspects of your emotional life).
If you’re in a long term relationship and it’s not working well that is going to impede your life progress - not enhance it - so this is a necessary evaluation process. You may need to consider your role as a partner, son or daughter, parent or sibling; along with issues of freedom, dependency, criticism and praise. Just because you have a strong view of the “right” way of doing something doesn’t mean it’s right for everyone!
But you will (or should at least attempt) to deal with a relationship issue in an appropriate way.
That’s not going to be an easy process as Saturn has turned retrograde (until July) and if you are experiencing difficulties communicating your feelings earlier on in life, or they have been restricted in some way (especially in your childhood) then these are the subconscious blocks that you are going to experience now.
You may actually fear being honest about your feelings, and definitely your emotions are elevated within all your relationships, which makes it harder still.
It’s a catch 22 because you don’t want to be alone, or separated from those you love, so making a conscious decision to repair damaged or estranged relationships will be almost a need.
But there is a proviso here; these relationships have to be mutually supportive, so if you sense (or know) that they are the enemy or you would be wasting your breath and time and they will reject you out of hand, then don’t go there.
But before you discount this completely you must do some self analysis also - and be objective - not subjective (not an easy process for a Virgo). Are you a good partner, child, parent, friend, sibling etc. and if you decide you are, then pull out all stops. Besides the energy you have at your disposal now that Jupiter is going direct (6th) is going to make you kinder and friendlier. so it’s a great time to take a plunge and make that connection.
That said, don’t take any association for granted or suppose you know the status quo (or even start counting your chickens) as the fat lady won’t sing until your ruler clears out of shadow phase on the 20th March.
But Mars retrograding all month (and until mid May) will help you “sort the wheat from the chaff” - and rid yourself of those things and people that are not longer working in your life – or no longer needed.
This of course can be a business, a person, or some other kind of resource (although with Mars in the picture there will be arguments about this process). If you are the CEO or the CFO or a Director/Trustee and make all the financial decisions, someone is going to argue against you with respect to where money is either spent or allocated.
April is a crazy month for all (and given the fact that Mercury is still in shadow for much of March), it’s best to not commit to any significant financial decisions - not that you will be able to do so easily. As I said there will be an individual or a board or a group who will oppose you and that’s more likely to be known in April.
Venus for most of the month will help you bring about more order and structure (and cleanliness) in your life - your favorite things - and much of March you will be on a mission to be helpful.
A lot of this also has to do with the full moon influence in your sign mid month, when you have a desire to be “front and centre” and with your hands firmly clamped on the wheel.
This will trigger an overall evaluation of your current direction (and the people who are with you on your journey) and your priorities are something that will need to be looked at closely as well.
Others needs versus your own is a key theme, plus you want more of the limelight and more attention (as you’ve been feeling just a tiny bit ignored).
In fact you may feel quite emotional mid month, and some memories or emotions will disturb your equilibrium. It may be someone close/ someone you love who is acting irrationally, or you miss him or her (or you’ve done the wrong thing and feel guilty). It could be any number of things.
You may have tried everything - or you may have tried nothing, but the next month is a prime time to simply try. That said, I do think you’ll be focusing more on yourself and your needs with your Pluto and Uranus placements.
Whatever occurs it’s not likely to be successful (or if it is, it result in your feeling intensely emotional), and you will end the last week of March feeling awkward and uneasy.
Someone else will hold a mirror to your actions and make you feel under scrutiny and exposed and it will either be their lack of response (or what they say about your actions) that will make you feel this way.
Old emotional issues will be back on the agenda, now that Mars is retrograding and after the Sun moves into Aries, life will become harder to deal with emotionally.
You will be dealing with old debts and that may be money (especially of the shared variety) or an old emotional debt.
As I said earlier, this is a prime month to offload any yokes around your neck or let go of expectations (and hopes) of something occurring that you must now acknowledge is never likely to happen.
With Uranus in your house of sex (and a new moon in this same part of your chart), your sex drive can go on overdrive, and you may be chasing someone.
At the end month there is a new moon in Aries that will finally help you to see the Big Picture (agenda’s and motivations - your own and others) and that leg-up will help you gain insight as to the right approach to take.
You start the month out with a new moon in Pisces in your house of work, health and daily routines and that suggests that its time to usher in a new approach (or even a new era) in the way that you manage your day-to-day life. If you are overweight, disorganized, drinking too much or indulging in any kind of risky health habits, this is your “wake up call” to amend your ways.
If your work-desk looks like a dogs breakfast (and your walls are plastered with post it notes), and life appears to be somewhat chaotic, you have positive Cosmic energy to help you to kick start some new regimes and schedules.
But whatever it is in your life that needs sorting out (remember this is anything in your daily life) then get to it!
Mars is in your sign (but goes retrograde this month until May) and that will help you to go back and attend to whatever needs “fixing” – either your image, your health or your environment – and you are a vain sign (or should I say conscious of your appearance). Many of you are about to launch into new careers, new relationships and new “era’s” of your life - even in different places - as Mars has been propelling you towards new challenges and even frustrating you to make some hard calls.
So it’s a great time to undertake a personal make-over that will further boost your image (and your confidence) and when you look good, you feel good.
You do have a lot of cosmic support and personal energy and a lot of external resources at your disposal, but don’t turn into a Panzer tank and ride roughshod over everyone in sight.
Now that Saturn is retrograding also (until late July), you’ll feel even more driven than usual to make more money and show the world how you can “make it”. You are currently very well equipped (thanks to Mars) with a strong drive and ability to build up your personal resources through hard work, and this will be particularly so during Saturn’s retrograde, right through until late July.
Venus for most of the month (from the 5th) is highlighting your unique skills and also making you more aware of the resources of other people that you can access and use.
But a number of planets are urging you to express your uniqueness and to do whatever process or activity it takes to gain a positive response from others. This may be in your business life - or in your love life – and you will be more flirtatious and engaging (as your attraction meter is on “high”).
For those Librans who are trying to start a family, this is a particularly fecund time, so get practicing!
The full moon mid month in Virgo brings everything to a head and you may feel a bit overwhelmed by all that has been happening in your life. For one reason or another you may want to withdraw from the social scene and be “far from the madding crowd” and that’s unusual for the normally social Libran.
It may be an emotional or subconscious problem that you have been suppressing until now, but it suddenly comes to light in March (or the realization that something profound in your life has to change). Therefore you will need some “down time” to sort out the right approach.
It may also be that you are simply tired or you are dealing with a health issue, so take care of yourself and try and get more sleep.
Alternatively - with all that flirting - there is a private romance or dalliance that is revealed; or some other kind of news that stuns others or you.
Certainly relationships are your main focus in the last week or so of March and you will be looking closely at the underling forces (and the motivations) that drive some of your key associations.
The saying “show me your friends and I’ll show you who you are” has never been more true, but if you don’t like what you see, this will be a time when you decided to recreate the wheel (or at least change and/or improve some of your key associations).
Especially in a long-term love relationship (or a long term employment association) it’s way overdue to redefine the boundaries and the give-and-take and introduce a better sense of fairness that has been sorely lacking.
It’s been two one sided and you’ve been way too sacrificial and compromising and it’s not a fair set up (and with Mars in your house of Self, you are realizing this, and more determined to do something to rectify the situation). You are being moved inexorably towards more freedom and independence, but a lot of what is happening in your life is being taken out of your hands by the Cosmos. You are being propelled into certain directions, but as this is in your house of Self, remember, it’s about YOU, no one else, so don’t lose sight of that.
But it’s fair to say your ego is a tad fragile in that you do need to get validation from loved ones or via your friends and if this is in short supply or lacking, then you’re going to feel a bit second rate.
The new moon in Aries at the end of the month gives you a perfect time to start a new era in your romantic or business relationships and to make the improvements that you feel are necessary.
That said April is going to be either very difficult for you as a cardinal sign or very “transformational” and there will either be a major change in your career or domestic scene (and that may even be a pregnancy as a result of the fecund period in March!).
You can anticipate confrontations in April (when you will be swimming in a sea of sharks), but at the end of March if you are in sales, PR or politics you’re going to be doing very well.
Your innate diplomacy will be enhanced as the month comes to a close, but as I’ve already indicated, it’s a great time re-define all your associations - or even to start a new romance if you want!
You start the month with a new moon in Pisces in your house of pleasure, romance, creativity and children, so depending on your personal circumstances you could be partying up a storm, in the throes of love or spending more time with your kids. You might be throwing yourself into a new hobby or have recently launched a creative venture or home business, but you wont’ be spending a lot of time at home.
If you are creative in any way it’s a great time to decide what you want to ‘create’ – a life, a career, some form of artwork – it can take many forms.
You’ve got more romantic luck (or power) at your disposal - in other words you are more appealing and magnetic - so if you’re inclined to pursue someone who has taken your fancy, this is prime time to be confident of success. You are emitting a glow and a mixture of confidence and playfulness that is highly alluring, but you will also be more inclined to be proactive and go on the “hunt” or the “chase”.
Unfortunately Mars has been a bit of a bug bare to your confidence in recent times and for all of March (until late May) it is now retrograding. Mars is the warrior planet and thus will bring “warrior” like scenarios, so there has been more conflict in your life of late, which is why this early month’s energy is so welcome, when you’re much more interested in making love than war.
In fact it may become a bit confusing as you are torn between having a good time and focusing your energies on more “productive” activities. Don’t worry too much, because with Mercury still in shadow phase until the third week, you may as well keep your options open until they become clearer. Better to do nothing right now than to take action when you are so unsure of your direction. These are uncertain times so it’s best to hold off.
This is further compounded with Saturn retrograding until July and this energy will make you feel even more reticence to take action or to express yourself. You might have feelings of inadequacy and that will make you more cautious and hesitant.
At any rate, Venus changing signs from the 5th will make you more inclined to “hang in” at home and “chill” and even spend more time with the family (rather than getting out slaying dragons). Even though you’ll be somewhat confused and uncertain about your direction, you’ll still feel fulfilled and content….and “completed”. Perhaps you’ve been partying too hard or working like crazy on a project and now want to spend more time as a spouse, parent, sibling, neighbor or friend.
You may even be focusing on your accommodation, relocating, buying or selling or redecorating (or helping someone close with some issues that they are dealing with).
That said, the full moon mid month in Virgo could bring an end to a friendship or you leave an organization, group or association that you’ve been a part of for a long time.
In the second half of the month you are sorting out some issues in your life, and streamlining your affairs. It may be that you rid yourself of toxic people or situations or you introduce some new mechanisms or regimes to make your world operate like a well-oiled machine.
It may be necessary to get the “work/play” balance right, as you will be required to spend more time at the office or whatever duties you are undertaking at this time.
The new moon in Aries at month’s end wants you to get healthy – mentally, emotionally and physically - and if you are in an unhealthy working environment this may be the stimulus to find a new job or a new social outlet if you are not working.
Jupiter moved direct again early in the month (on the 6th) so those foreign shores or that foreign person beckons. Anything foreign, global or international, legal or educational will be “all systems go”.
You start the month with a new moon in Pisces in your house of
house of home and family, so you are starting a new era that is directed toward making improvements to this area of your life. This may be with your parents, siblings or spouse; or with your tangible home, but it’s a great time to spend developing some workable long-term goals. For example if your family life is less than functional and somewhat disparate, then a goal could be to reunite the warring factions. If this is not the case, then your goals may include decorating, renovating, putting in a pool or adding an extension, landscaping, or moving to a new home.
But it can be about making a concerted effort to cleanse your home life and repair or clean up some domestic or family “messes” (and if this is the case, this has emanated from some deep seated emotions that you’ve been grappling with in this area).
It may be that you want to fix up or renew your family connections and spend more time with them… or head for the hills. It’s very likely though that you will be more driven to sell your home and buy another one or relocate (either alone or together..).
You might want to tell someone how you really feel about your domestic and family life and/or what has been making you feel vulnerable. In March you must pay attention to what that little voice in your head and heart is telling you and no matter how hard some of those messages might be to carry out, you must respect your own needs wishes (and not those of others).
It’s possible that you have been going along with the program or adhering to family dynamics, without paying attention to how you feel about all of this. So now it’s time to get more in touch with your own feelings and needs.
Mars retrograding all month (and until late May) will highlight where there is no longer the “right fit” and that may be in your social life or family life. Some of your associations have passed their use by date, but you will feel out of sorts with a number of the people in your life. You may also be inclined to hold others responsible for how you are feeling - or any failures that might have occurred – and there is a situation that IS applying pressure to your circle and this may be outer pressure, from a family member or from a situation. Unfortunately the outcome of this situation will not be known until after April, and even if there are signs in March, there is still the retrograde shadow and everything can change again…and again.
Saturn retrograding all month (and until July) will exacerbate your fears about anything that has been kept under wraps or hidden. This may be a private family issue, or some financial arrangements, but you will worry about your own culpability. There is a sense that others have railroaded your own personal or business boundaries and in some instances you may even feel under threat and when Saturn is retrograding, some issues of hidden or private information will be revisited ….but eventually resolved.
Many Sagittarian will be getting more involved with their neighbors or through community groups (either directly or via their children) and if there has been any distance in a relationship with a sibling, this can either be renewed - or if there have been no problems, you can become even closer.
There is a full moon mid month in Virgo and that will highlight your life direction and career and some action or activity that you undertake may put you under the spotlight more than usual.
If you are working, then this is a great time to put your best foot forward and sell yourself and trumpet your own horn. Some lucky Sags will be headhunted or decide to change careers (or even your life path) on the spur of the moment.
If what you are doing with your life right now no longer “does it for you” or isn’t fulfilling or enjoyable, then this is when you will be doing a big rethink.
If a job, relationship, family dynamic or lifestyle is way past its use by date, then you will “cease and desist”, but that may be in response to a sudden opportunity relating to any of these areas.
At some stage in March (more likely in the second half) you will receive some fantastic news that makes you happy; or at the very least puts a smile on your face and makes you feel more at peace, and perhaps even less under threat. [That said, things could still change again in April – July].
In fact the last week or so you will be like a Phoenix, and it will be like you’ve been reborn or released from whatever was restricting you emotionally or mentally. You will be feeling enthused about life and very lively and it’s possible there is a reason for this celebration. It may be the announcement of a pregnancy, or the green light on a project or a matter that has been stalled. You might have met someone and are in the throes of love, and this is a passionate time whether you are single or partnered. At any rate, it’s the beginning of anew chapter in your life and you will be re-building confidence.
You start the month with a new moon in Pisces in your house of communications, siblings and transport so if you suddenly feel as if you’ve gotten a whole lot busier, you have (and there IS a reason for this). More face-to face meetings, emails, twitter, face book, phone calls and every other kind of electronic communication that is now available. You will be zodiacs Road Runner, but at least life won’t be dull!
It’s very possible that in the first week or so you head off on a trip interstate or at least a few hours away for a mini break.
If you are not working, you may be doing a lot more socially (and you are in demand) or have decided to enroll in a course. A lot of Cappy’s are innately shy, but you’ll be feeling quite the social butterfly and in fact physically and mentally you need to keep busy in March and you will be racking up the mileage as you dart around your community.
If a brother or sister lives at a distance they may be visiting you, or more in contact for one reason or another.
Of course being a Capricorn (and especially with Pluto propelling you to great heights career wise and in your general reputation and status), you are driven in this regard. However Mars has been in this sector of your chart as well, making you even more obsessed about making headway in your career.
All of March Mars is now retrograding (until late May) and this will make you agitated about success and achieving worldly status, and if you encounter any obstacles to your progress (or anyone hinders your ascent), you will be incensed. Unfortunately it does appear as if there will be a few hurdles for you to climb and April unfortunately has you turning into a steeple jumper (having to jump over a number of obstacles in your path). You will be jockeying for position within an organization or within a family dynamic, and you will encounter rivalry and even some antagonism.
But when the “going get’s tough, you get going” (and not in the opposite direction) but your challenge will be to steer clear of long term fall-outs that are very possible with Mars stirring the pot. As Mars is retrograde, whatever damage occurs now could return and become an even greater problem later on (or in April!).
March therefore would be well spent doing some long term career planning, and reviewing where you’re “at” and some of your life goals.
More importantly work out what is worth the fight and what is worth holding onto. Jupiter goes direct early in March (6th) so you can turn the tables on anyone who has tried to bring you down in recent months, and the harder they try, the harder they will fall. On an even better note, you can direct all relationships in any direction/level you want.
Saturn retrograding all month (and until July) will make you feel less brave (thankfully you have Mars added the “grunt”) but this will be more evident within groups of people and amongst your friends. Therefore it may be to your advantage to only hang with friends you trust or socialize mainly with work colleagues.
Venus is helping your self-esteem and your finances (albeit only until the 5th April) but you may find that some of the concerns or fears you had about a money matter is not quite as pressing.
The full moon in Virgo mid month occurs in your house of travel, law, education, religion and spirituality and certainly your perspective on a matter is going to change. Pluto in Capricorn is making you question your previous belief systems (and how others influences have impacted upon you) and this full moon energy will highlight this even further.
The things that you used to feel were important in your life you might jettison altogether as you are getting stronger in both mind and spirit.
Alternatively you may introduce more fun into your life, especially if you’ve been too dry and serious and working excessively. It might have been “all work and no play” or too much concentration on family or other people’s needs and suddenly you see what is lacking in your own life. It’s time you do what YOU want to do and what makes you happy, and this is especially so if you’ve put all your focus on one particular area of your life up until now.
As this is the house of law and foreigners there may be some issues in either of these areas, an obstacle to travel plans, bad news from afar, a legal complication and so on.
In the last week or so you will be redirecting your attention back to you own needs and if you have any family, then you will be paying more attention to them as well.
But this is more likely to be because (as I’ve mentioned above) you feel that something is lacking in your life or some aspect of your domestic scene is not making you happy. You might have a horror flatmate, a house/flat you don’t like, or it’s too far from where you work, or there are construction issues. It may be that you are not operating well with a spouse, children or parents, but something to do with your personal space needs attention. [Jupiter however is now “onside”]
As a cardinal sign, April is going to be quite “definitive” and it’s not simply the personal transformation that you are undergoing (thanks to Pluto) but a lot is happening around you and can relate to the above issues.
You might relocate, or have a family break, or be subjected to someone’s power play. Your increasing need for domination is going to be at loggerheads with someone close and this will most likely be with a spouse, parent, parent in law, or other family member or flat mate.
So March is a good month to work out what you really want in terms of emotional and domestic security and what you need to do to improve your home life or living conditions.
You start the month out with a new moon in Pisces in your house ofmoney, assets and self esteem and this may kick start a new chapter when you decide to start making some serious money or explore what avenues you can take to increase your income. Maybe this means changing jobs or undertaking more training and it’s also very possible that you do get some good news - such as an offer or a new opportunity.
Certainly you are paying more attention to your finances and getting on top of them if they are out of control or making even more (even if you are already doing very well). It’s an expansive time financially, but also one in which you can spend, save or restructure.
As this is also the house of self esteem, you might be paying attention to ways in which you can make yourself more confident (and that may tie in with income) or the tangible security that you have in your life. In other words how strong is your foundation and structure, do you have assets, a home, car and so on.
Irrespective of what you have - or haven’t got right now - this energy will inspire you to get real about your finances and start setting some realistic financial goals.
Mars has been travelling your house of foreign influences, travel and the law and it now retrograding for all of March (and until late May). This is in the house of expansion so you may find you are offered an opportunity overseas, or an education placement, but it’s exciting news. But for many with Mars here, some issue from afar, or in a global/foreign/educational sense has been an ongoing problem. Maybe you are an expat and having to understand and work with opposing views or foreign structures. Mars will remain here until July, so if you’re feeling cornered or suppressed in your job and it’s not offering you the scope that you need right now, or is too confusing, then you’ll be looking elsewhere.
March is a month of planning to work out where you want to head in the future and in some cases, how you can extricate yourself from your current position.
Saturn retrograding all of March as well (until July) will increase your fears of public failure, so you’ll be reluctant to take any steps that may land you from the frying pan into the fire. During the retrograde in your house of career, you’ll be more reticent and cautious about your moves (but that may do you a disservice or you miss out on opportunities due to excessive caution).
Many Aquarians have had to deal with a number of impediments and hindrances over the years in their career, but if you have remained committed and hard-working you will be garnering the respect and rewards in your in your chosen profession before too long. But this may be revisited now and you may make some further career adjustments.
Actually this would be very good to happen in March (but after the Mercury shadow phase) and that limits you to the last week. But Venus until the 5th April is helping your image and your self confidence, and that will give you the energy and the thrust to purse the things that you feel are important (and in the main I feel these will be career related).
The full moon in Virgo mid month is also a transformational time, when you will be able to let go of something that is no longer needed (a job, a life restriction etc). Shared funds (either with an intimate or business partner) or even a loan or a debt may be issues that you are dealing with - and you may have to part with a large amount. Alternatively you could be given a large amount, a redundancy, a divorce settlement, a loan, and so on.
The last week or so it the best time if you’re planning to make a career change as the Sun moves into Aries on the 20th and this will light up your communications house (which lets face it, is your house). This will help to open your mind to new and innovative ideas and your ability to play the angles and get an edge over others will be highlighted. There will be nothing or nobody that you can’t talk around to your way of thinking and your mind will be amazingly agile.
You can turn everything around in your favor now by discarding an old order and transforming the status quo, or you may decide to take up a course. At the very least you are a star at any social gathering – you are spellbinding!
The next month will be a very busy period for you, and you’re likely to be making at least a couple of trips out of town, and it will be a period that is marked by new experiences. A new job IS on the cards, but network like crazy as the latter will lead to the former.
You’re a sign of the genius and this is a period of your life when you must feed your mind (or you’ll go around the bend), so investing your mental energies in study would be a productive use of your enhanced mental processes.
If you’ve fallen out with a neighbor or a sibling, this is alto a great time to break bread and “kiss and make up”.
You start the month with a new moon in Pisces in your house of
Self, and this is huge because it’s the start of a whole new you. It may not be obvious, but this kick starts an era when you can completely reinvent yourself and do something radically different with your life. Alternatively you can just go out and do something minor like get your teeth whitened…but it more suggestive of a makeover and revamp of your brand/image, your life and even your personality (if required).
Your confidence, energy and approach to life is undergoing a metamorphosis, but in order to be authentic and to “pull it off” you’ve also got to work on the inner as well. You have to “walk your talk”.
March is a great month to experiment with new things, to socialize more and make new contacts and generally be bolder and more enterprising. If there has been something you’ve always wanted to do (or someone you’ve always wanted to “do”..) then this is the time to find your courage and dare yourself to follow through and act on desires.
This is an influential energy when you will be coming across well and showing your best side and that will open up a whole new chapter in your life.
Meanwhile Mars has been restructuring your power base and in March will be retrograding (until late May) and this will call upon you to rethink of how you use your power. Mars is retrograding in the house of sex, so perhaps you are unconsciously using your sexuality as a form of power in order to get your way. That said, ex lovers and relationships that have lost some of their spark (through distance or time) can be revived in the next month or so. In fact if you can rekindle a relationship, this will deliver a huge burst of confidence and you’ll find your “centre” again (that has been a bit shaky for a while).
What has been happening to you for the past few months is a big internal reconstruction and you’ve felt like you were on your own or unsupported and you’ve had to rely on your own emotional resources. Therefore a relationship (especially one that you’ve been able to recover and salvage) will help you with this process.
Unfortunately with Mercury in shadow phase until the third week, you may not know the full picture as to where this relationship is going…if at all.
This is compounded by Saturn retrograding all month also (until July) so you may be feeling restricted by life in general and wonder what the meaning of it is -and your role in it.
Venus for most of the month is making you hungry for love, and your desire to be with someone could be quite overwhelming.
Of course being a Pisces you are self-sacrificing, so you may find yourself playing the other woman/man, waiting in the wings or generally being the one holding the short straw (while your love interest does his or her “own thing”).
Many Pisces will be feeling used and abused or at the very least let down by those they love and care for (or even those that they have gone out of their way to help and support). In fact some may doubt your personal agenda and motivations and misinterpret them (especially until the third week of March).
The full moon in Virgo occurs in your house of relationships, so it may bring this relationship to and end (formally) or you might decide to assess the status quo and decide whether or not you even have a relationship (and if you do, if its working).
Many Pisces will chose March to draw a line in the sand and end a relationship - or walk away from a job - or a life situation that is no longer sustaining.
That said, full moon energy is intense, so conversely you could take a relationship to a deeper level, but you will need to strike a balance with each other’s respective needs.
There will be an number of "tests" to the relationship in March (and even more so in April) but by the same token, the last week in March in particular is a great chance to truly connect to a special someone. [That is of course, if you’ve managed to sort out the practicalities and get on the same page with your respective needs…].
This may be within a job or career situation and you might have to deal with the financial implications, especially if you’ve made some fundamental changes to your life path in February.
It’s important for you to shore up your self esteem and sense of worth, and that can be in your individual value (as in what you offer personally) but also in a financial sense. You will be looking at your income, and getting your finances under control.
Next month will be the turning point in the way you deal with your finances (if you didn’t do this if February) but you will start the process in March. It’s about unhinging yourself from others and finding your own financial feet.
