Saturn Leaves Capricorn
This could turn out to be an important month of the year for you and there are a couple of major reasons why. Firstly, your planet Saturn changes star sign on the 22nd. Saturn leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius, your personal money sector.
This is always an important shift of planetary energy as Saturn stays in one sector of your horoscope for just over two years. Saturn has been in Capricorn since December 2017.
As Saturn is the planet of authority, commitment and discipline, notice where you’ve stepped up your game or become more serious about your personal goals and aims. As with all the planets, there is a flip side to Saturn and sometimes it can slow you down or indicate a period of hard work or hardship.
Some of you may find that things start to move quicker this month, especially once Mercury turns direct on the 10th. This is one of March’s key turning points but there are other significant dates too.
This has a lot to do with the other planets in your star sign Capricorn. Mars has been here since February 16th but this has coincided with Mercury retrograde since February 17th. Usually, when Mars is in your star sign, this is a go-for-it period when you feel revved up and ready for action.
Capricorn rules not only your personal goals and aims, also your image and profile and how the world sees you. It’s about your physical body as well, your strength. Mars is a strong, masculine energy, great for training or getting fit. It’s a brave and bold planet and a good time to make courageous moves when Mars marches through your star sign.
The key period for Mars this month is the 20th to the 23rd. Mars teams up with Jupiter in Capricorn on the first date and Pluto in Capricorn on the second date. Jupiter is the planet of opportunity and good fortune. You may experience a win on or around the 20th and feel fired up.
Pluto’s influence is more intense. Yes, it’s the planet of transformation but it also symbolises power and loss. Be wary of power games when Mars and Pluto come together.
You could be up against someone who’s an invincible force. Or perhaps, you’re the one who needs to stand your ground. There’s a lot happening in your star sign this month so pace yourself and choose your battles wisely.
Love & Connections
Venus promises a lighter, more playful influence as she graces your fellow earth sign Taurus from the 5th. Taurus rules romance in your horoscope, also children, creativity, entertainment and luck. Be indulgent and bring more joy and pleasure into your life.
The 8th feels particularly uplifting when Venus and Uranus unite. Sometimes, this can coincide with falling in love. Whatever opportunity arises, you’re wise to act fast and be spontaneous to make the most of this lively planetary influence. And, be there for the ones you love if necessary.
The Pisces’ influence remains strong this month, especially around the Full Moon on the 9th. This is the date before Mercury turns direct and it’s an ideal time to trust your intuition. The light of the Full Moon often brings clarity and Mercury turning direct can bring information to light or you receive news that you’ve been waiting on.
Pisces is an emotional water sign and in your communication sector, this is about making genuine connections with other people. Expand your reach and do what feels right. Pisces rules siblings and neighbours, also your local community. The Sun is here until the 20th and Mercury re-enters Pisces on the 16th. In fact, Mercury isn’t out of its shadow phase in Pisces until the 29th.
Therefore, the theme of reconnection remains strong. Follow up on conversations or chase up past connections. Read more, watch movies and feed your imagination. This can be a creative phase for you when you need dreams to believe in and people in your life who stir your soulful nature.
Money is also an important factor this month as Mercury retreats back into Aquarius on the 4th, turns direct here on the 10th and remains in your personal money sector until the 16th. Any decisions you make after the 10th could prove beneficial. Chase up any monies owing from earlier in the year.
The big move, however, is your ruler Saturn entering Aquarius on the 22nd where it remains until July 1st. Saturn then returns to Aquarius on December 17th where it stays for the subsequent two years. Decide what you’re ready to commit to and where you’re ready to move on. These are Saturn’s themes, planning financial long-term goals, also stopping any drains on your money.
Aquarius will be the star sign of the moment in 2021. Hopefully, if you’ve made the most of the powerful planetary energy in Capricorn, you value yourself highly and you’re ready to expand your horizons, play big and make the right moves.
Finally, the Sun’s move into Aries on the day of the Equinox, the 20th highlights your home and family sector, your connection to the past. The New Moon on the 24th also falls in Aries, a symbol of new beginnings. You may be on the move or ready to put energy into family affairs.
