Libra (23 September – 23 October)
There’s a little bit of magic around at the beginning of March. On the 1st, your planet Venus is exalted in Pisces, the star sign which rules your work and lifestyle, your routine and your health. Plus, Venus teams up with Jupiter, the best planet in astrology, currently in Scorpio and your money sector.
This feels abundant for you, whether you receive a gift or you hear good news about a job or your health. Pisces is a sign that has a lot in common with your own sign of Libra as you’re both givers. As a Sun Libra, you may naturally believe that what you give you receive in return.
The beginning of March is gorgeous for connecting with work colleagues and teaming up with other people to help or offer mutual support.
This may be an emotional time of the month as there’s also a Full Moon cutting across the Virgo/Pisces axis of the zodiac on the 2nd. These two star signs are about service and surrender, learning that when you help other people you receive a huge amount in return.
Focus your energy and attention on your work and health early in the month as the rewards could be more than worth it. The other significant time for these areas of your life is the 13th to the 17th.
On the first date, the Sun and Jupiter come together bringing luck your way and, on the 17th, there’s a New Moon in Pisces, a symbol of new beginnings. This would be an excellent date to apply for a job or start a new fitness or well-being routine.
Jupiter is emphasised on the 9th too, as it switches direction in the zodiac. The effort you put in early this month could pay off later in the year when Jupiter’s back to direct motion mid-July.
On the 6th, both your ruler Venus and communication planet Mercury change star signs and move into Aries, your opposite sign. This puts the focus on relationships and your 1-to-1 connections, both personal and professional.
March is an important month to turn your attention towards all form of relationships and consider how working in partnership can benefit you. Love may be in the ascendancy and, if this is the case, there are a couple of stand-out dates for meeting someone new or enjoying your current relationship or marriage.
Mars is your partner planet and teams up with spontaneous Uranus in Aries on the 11th, there’s a sociable Mercury/Venus conjunction in Aries on the 20th and the 29th is potentially the stand-out date. This is when your ruler Venus teams up with Uranus in your relationship sector. This often brings surprises in love, whether you meet someone new or spring a surprise on someone close.
Plus, there’s a second Full Moon this month, a Blue Moon, which occurs on the 31st. This is an important Full Moon for you because it takes place in your star sign Libra. This could be a pivotal time for your relationships, your 1-to-1’s, bringing excitement or change your way.
There are some provisos, however, and it won’t all be thrills and adrenalin when it comes to love and relationships. In fact, your ruling planet Venus is said to be weakened in Aries as you’re the relating star sign and Aries is about the individual.
With Venus in Aries, you may need to put yourself first, especially if you’re lacking balance in a close relationship. Or perhaps it’s important to assert yourself around other people. One of your Libra life lessons is learning to say No as you’re a people pleaser by nature. You don’t like to upset others. Consider the balance of power in your 1-to-1’s and, if it’s out, consider what can you do to regain equilibrium.
This will be a key feature of your month ahead because, on the 20th, it’s the Sun’s annual move into Aries, the day of the Equinox. When the Sun is in your opposite sign, other people can help you out but competitive situations may be tiring or more challenging than usual.
As the Sun rules vitality, you often have more energy when it’s in your star sign rather than at the opposite spectrum of the zodiac. So pace yourself with regard to relationships. Team up with people who can help you and inspire you and be wary of individuals who sap your energy or are too demanding or confronting.
From the 11th onwards, the personal planets in Aries clash with key planets in Capricorn, the star sign at the base of your horoscope. This is about your home and family, your past and where you come from. You may find a certain level of opposition or negativity from people close to you, so bear this in mind.
Saturn squares your ruler, Venus, on the 13th and clashes with the Sun on the 29th. Perhaps what makes you happy doesn’t please someone else. Or maybe you’re ready to move on from the past but other people are holding you back.
Action planet Mars enters Capricorn and this sector of your horoscope on the 17th, where it remains until mid-May. Another indication that you may need to get tough around a home, family or property matter that’s stuck.
Retreat is an option if you sense it would help your situation. This is because communication planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 23rd in Aries and your relationship sector. It remains on go slow until mid-April, which indicates a significant turning point for a close encounter. The 15th/16th April are the dates to note.
At its best, March will be a month when other people fire up your life and enthusiastic individuals help you to get things done. If you need some time to yourself, however, schedule this into your busy diary and don’t waste all your energy trying to cater for other people’s needs.
Any misunderstandings can be sorted out in the middle of next month. For now, protect yourself and your own interests.
