Mercury, the planet ruling communication and the mind has been retrograde in Pisces, a fellow water sign, since February 17th. This month, on the 4th, Mercury retreats back into Aquarius where it turns direct on the 10th.
Mercury’s move into air sign Aquarius feels more logical and structured. If you’ve felt lost or been going around in circles, this could be a helpful shift for you. You are one of life’s daydreamers but there are times when you need to leave the realm of the imagination and manifest your dreams in real life.
This month does have a back-to-work feel about it, whatever that means for you. For example, Mercury’s move into Aquarius lights up your joint finance sector. Now’s the time to start renegotiating or working things out financially. You may return to a conversation or project that began earlier in the year as you have new ideas or news.
The turning point could be the 10th when Mercury turns direct bringing new information to light. This is also the time in the month of the Full Moon, always significant for you as you’re a Moon child. The Sun remains in dreamy, romantic Pisces during the Full Moon on the 9th but the Moon is in practical Virgo.
This would be a good time to go somewhere different and be in new surroundings. If a good friend suggests a last-minute get-together, take advantage. Think about expanding your horizons and get away the weekend leading up to the glorious Full Moon. This is a time to trust your intuition and start making those key decisions in your life.
Money becomes more important in your life from the 22nd onwards. This is when Saturn enters Aquarius where it remains until July 1st and returns to Aquarius on December 17th. It’s then in this key sector of your horoscope for the subsequent two years.
Therefore, what takes place this month could set a new precedent or be the start of a new phase in your life. This is linked to your financial situation whether one form of income is coming to an end. Or alternatively, you’re ready to commit to an investment, a mortgage or loan. Saturn takes 30 years to circuit the zodiac so think back to what you put in place on the previous cycle, if you’re old enough to remember.
Saturn is the planet of endings, also commitment, discipline and long-term goals. Saturn’s great for planning for the future and you’re wise to consider your next steps regarding your financial future. This is what the new phase is about for you.
The other reason why things are heating up for you is because of the Sun’s move into Aries on the 20th, the day of the Equinox. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. In your horoscope, it represents your career and vocation, your status and reputation. Again, you have your eye on the future when key planets enter this sector of your horoscope.
Plus, the New Moon this month falls in Aries on the 24th, a symbol of new beginnings. It would be an excellent date to start a new job, apply for a job or launch a project. There’s a theme of starting over during this New Moon.
One area where life could be full on for you in March is relationships, whether personal, professional or both. This is because you have Mars, the action planet, in Capricorn and your relationship sector throughout the month. Mars only changes star sign on the 30th.
Mars rules passion and the libido. For some of you, you could be in the throes of a full-blown love affair, exploring your sexuality. Yet, Mars also rules conflict and competitive situations. Therefore, you may find that one relationship in your life brings more arguments than usual. You could be involved in a power play, whether at work or in your personal life.
The key dates here are the 20th and 23rd when Mars first unites with Jupiter, then Pluto. Jupiter is the planet of good fortune. So perhaps, you’re involved with someone who’s a force of nature, a powerful individual who lifts you up and brings something new to your life. Pluto is a different influence altogether as it’s the planet of transformation, also power and loss.
This astrology could coincide with the end of a relationship. Or, you find yourself taking on someone powerful, perhaps at work or in a different situation in your life. Certainly, any aggravation could come to a head during this key period in March.
Ensure you have the support of good and loyal friends in March. Venus, the planet of love and relating, is in Taurus and your friendship sector from the 5th onwards. This is where fun and happiness can be found, in your group activities and being with the people in your life who know you best.
Venus teams up with Jupiter and Pluto on the 28th and 29th in a helpful and supportive planetary pattern. Whether you’re the one offering support or you have someone in your life to lean on, this is where strength and kindness can be found.
Finally, Mars enters Aquarius on the 30th and immediately clashes with Saturn at 0 degrees Aquarius on the 31st. This is a hot spot for your financial affairs.
Someone could lay down the law. Or perhaps, you’re the one who needs to dig deep and show your grit and determination. Mars will remain here throughout April, another key month for money matters.
