Overview

March begins on an idealistic note, thanks to a conjunction between the optimistic Sun and utopian Neptune on the 1st. It’s a great time for spiritual renewal. Retreating to a quiet place near the water could be remarkably therapeutic. An opposition between excessive Jupiter and unpredictable Uranus on the 2nd could lead to foolish extravagance during the first half of the month. Avoid going on shopping sprees at this impulsive time. When in doubt, it’s better to stick with a boring routine than take a foolhardy risk.

Vain Venus goes retrograde on the 4th, undermining confidence about looks and desirability. Instead of seeking satisfaction from superficial things like status symbols, opt for more profound sources of fulfillment. Communing with nature, following spiritual practices and reading inspirational material can ease feelings of self-consciousness. On the 9th, energetic Mars moves into stabilizing Taurus, making it a good time to pursue moneymaking opportunities and cultivate new business. Going after a highly desirable job could be stimulating.

On the 12th, the Full Moon might mark the sudden end of a regular job. Health problems could also arise at this time; a medical consultation might prove helpful. Instead of obsessing about routines, factor some relaxation into the daily round. If chores fall through the cracks, so be it. There will be plenty of time to attend to these tasks later, when some rest and relaxation has been enjoyed.

Curious Mercury moves into Aries on the 13th, cultivating a pioneering spirit. This is a great time to delve deeply into an unfamiliar subject. Learn as much as possible about current events, cutting-edge technology or emerging trends.

It’s a great time to start a creative project or embark on an intimate relationship. Mercury in Aries joins independent Uranus on the 20th, paving the way for solo efforts. Instead of asking for permission and waiting for approval, obey a daring impulse. It will be liberating to march to the beat of your own drummer rather than follow the crowd.

The New Moon in Aries on the 27th raises energy and generates excitement. The momentum gained from changing direction will be significant. Get ready for a thrilling rollercoaster ride. Strident Jupiter forms a square to imposing Pluto on the 30th. Trying to impose personal beliefs on others may cause anger and resentment at this tense time; adopting a “live and let live” strategy may be more effective.

This is a good opportunity to create a sensible budget, develop a moneymaking strategy or devise ways of being more resourceful.
