Love & Relationships
Venus, your ruling planet, moves out of Aries and your relationship sector on the 5th. However, that doesn’t mean that relationships aren’t important in March. In fact, a lot of key planetary activity is lighting up the romance and relationship sectors of your horoscope.
Firstly, communication planet, Mercury, retreats back into Aquarius and your romance sector on the 4th. It turns direct here on the 10th and changes star sign on the 16th. Mercury’s change of direction often brings new information to light or you hear news you’ve been waiting for.
Sometimes, you change your mind, perhaps about a love relationship. You can, however, start to be more confident about making key decisions once Mercury is back on track. And, if someone reappears from your past, get to know them better, pick up where you left off and initiate any important conversations.
Also, later this month on the 20th, the Sun enters Aries and your opposite star sign. This is the date of the Equinox, a symbol of fresh starts. Plus, four days later, there’s a New Moon in Aries, a symbol of new beginnings. Whether you meet someone new or you’re starting over with someone already in your life, this is a lively vibe for love and relationships.
Sometimes, your energy dips when the Sun is in your opposite sign. Other people have the upper hand and you may find yourself in a competitive situation once the Sun enters Aries.
If so, dig deep and find your inner confidence. This is especially important if you’re pitching for a job or contract or you’re at an audition or interview. Other people will battle hard so ensure that you’re ready and raring to go as well.
A Deeper Understanding
What may help is to understand yourself on a deeper level. Venus, your ruler, enters Taurus on the 5th where it remains throughout March. Taurus is one of the hidden sectors of your horoscope and it’s an ideal time to pursue self-development or gain more insight about your inner motivations.
This is especially true for you when Venus aligns with Uranus on the 8th. You could have a flash of insight or inspiration on or around this date. Uranus is taking you into places you’ve not explored before, whether you’ve recently encountered death or the dark side of life.
Sometimes, it’s when you step more fully into the breadth of life experiences that you learn more about yourself. This is potentially what’s happening throughout March.
On a more practical level, Taurus rules money and joint finances in your horoscope. Here, there may be sudden changes, perhaps linked to your family, your home or a property deal.
At the same time as Venus is cruising through Taurus, you have Mars the action planet in Capricorn and your home and family sector. This is a powerful placing for Mars and it’s reigniting issues around home and family, your past and where you come from.
This is a good time to be pro-active and get ahead, especially if you’re keen to renovate your home, move somewhere new or meet up with long-lost family.
The period around the 20th to the 23rd feels full on as Mars encounters Jupiter in Capricorn on the first date and Pluto in Capricorn on the second date. Jupiter is the planet of good fortune, urging you to expand where you live or expand your family. Reach out and reconnect when Mars and Jupiter unite.
The Mars/Pluto conjunction is more challenging as it can bring matters to a head. If you’re in a situation where control is an issue or someone dominates, this combination could coincide with an ultimatum. Be wary of what you get involved in and be wary of other people who throw their weight around. Take a step back if necessary.
Come the 28th/29th of the month, Venus, your ruler teams up with Jupiter and Pluto in a supportive connection. This is a much better opportunity to work things out with loved ones, an estate agent or another individual connected to home and family affairs.
Up until the 20th, the Sun is in Pisces and Mercury returns here on the 16th. There’s a flow around your work and health with this combination. The Full Moon on the 9th highlights your work and routine, your lifestyle and your health. Do whatever’s necessary so you feel in flow. Find work that’s meaningful and be of service to others.
If you’re looking for work, Mercury’s return to Pisces is ideal for chasing people up. Think second chances and try again where you failed earlier this year. Also, get on the right side of other people and use your diplomatic skills to ensure you’re a good team. This will help your life to go with the flow.
Saturn Enters Aquarius
Finally, there’s a major move this month when Saturn enters Aquarius on the 22nd. It remains here until July 1st and returns to Aquarius on December 17th where it stays for the subsequent two years. Aquarius not only rules romance in your horoscope, also children & pregnancy, entertainment, creative projects and luck.
Basically, it’s the good things in life. Therefore, on the one hand, you might find it easier to commit to a hobby or leisure activity. You might be ready to start a family or spend more time with your kids. Wherever you find Saturn, you can be more focused as your levels of self-disicpline are heightened.
Yet, remember that Saturn can flag up an obstacle and is one of the planets linked to endings. Therefore, it could be make-or-break time for a relationship. Or perhaps, you have to make a tough decision regarding a child.
Mars enters Aquarius on the 30th and meets Saturn on the 31st. This could highlight an issue or situation for your partner. Or perhaps, you’re forced to make a significant decision about one of the areas mentioned above. There will be more ease and flow in this area of your horoscope once Jupiter joins in at the end of 2020.
