Mercury On The Move
Your planet Mercury is on the move this month. Mercury rules communication and the mind and has been retrograde, i.e. in retreat since February 17th. This can be a confusing period for you when things don’t always go the way you’d planned and it’s hard to feel as if you’re moving in the right direction.
Therefore, when Mercury turns direct on the 10th, this is a significant turning point for you. Mercury’s change of direction is the planetary equivalent of a green light. Sometimes, you hear news you’ve been waiting for or information comes to light that helps you make a key decision.
It’s a great date to initiate a a conversation and to get things moving in your life. Start to focus on the future, in particular, areas around your work and health. This is because Mercury turns direct in air sign Aquarius. It retreats here on the 4th and picks up speed in Aquarius on the 10th where it remains until the 16th.
This would be a good time to try again with a situation related to your work or health. For example, chase up an old contact or a job that didn’t come off earlier in the year. Or, get a second opinion regarding a health issue or think again about an alternative treatment or therapy.
Saturn Enters Aquarius
These areas of your life are going to become more important to you over the next couple of years. This is because the slower-moving planets are starting to move into Aquarius. This month, Saturn changes star sign entering 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.
As it takes Saturn 30 years to circuit the zodiac, this is a big deal. If you’re old enough, think back to the last time that Saturn was moving through your work and health sector. Saturn represents both endings and commitment, the opposite ends of the scale. A job or contract could close. Or perhaps, you land a job that you’re going to be in for the next few years.
Also, Aquarius rules service to others, so you may decide to become a volunteer. You are one of the star signs that gain great fulfilment from helping or taking care of others. Aquarius rules employees, lodgers and pets. Here too, there may be a definitive move once Saturn is in this sector of your horoscope.
Regarding your health, now’s the time to flex your excellent self-discipline and put some new habits in place. It’s said that habits take 66 days to bed in, so why not start something new when Saturn moves into Aquarius and it will be part of your new routine by the time Saturn changes star sign.
Love & Passion
Relationships remain important to you this month. Your ruler Mercury has been retrograde in Pisces, your relationship sector. Sometimes, this means that love is confusing. Or perhaps, a partner or significant other goes quiet on you. Again, the turning point comes on the 10th when Mercury turns direct.
However, there’s another reason why this could be a turning point for a relationship. This is because on the 9th, there’s a glorious Full Moon in your star sign, Virgo. The Sun is in Pisces and your relationship sector until the 20th and the Full Moon is often a moment of clarity and intuition.
Emotions run high and important matters culminate during the Full Moon. For some of you, this period in the month promises love and romance. Mars, the passion planet, is also in Capricorn and your romance sector and very active throughout March. Decide where your heart lies and make your move during the Full Moon period.
Your planet Mercury returns to Pisces on the 16th and only moves out of its shadow phase on the 29th. Therefore, someone could come back into your life during this period. Or perhaps, you want to try again in a key relationship as this is often a time of second chances.
Love planet, Venus, is in Taurus for most of March, from the 5th onwards and your travel and study sector. A spontaneous trip away with a loved one could work wonders, again during the Full moon weekend – 7th/8th. And, Venus kicks in later in the month on the 23rd, 28th and 29th. Expand your horizons and be adventurous in your love life.
This could be a creative month for you when you have a lot of passion and energy for a hobby, a leisure activity or something you do that you love. Mars teams up with Jupiter in Capricorn on the 20th and Pluto in Capricorn on the 23rd. This whole combination feels intense, powerful, energetic.
There could be an issue with a child or lover and you have to play things carefully. Yet, this is also about grabbing life by the reins and fulfilling your own passions. Strong earth sign energy – Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn – dominates the month’s astrology and this can be good news for you. Do more of what you love and embrace life fully.
Finally, it’s important to note the Equinox on the 20th, the date when the Sun starts its journey around the zodiac and enters Aries. There’s a New Moon in Aries on the 24th, a symbol of new beginnings.
Aries rules your joint finance sector so this is about shared resources and all forms of money matters, especially close ties and associations. Here too, you’re wise to act fast once the Sun lights up this sector of your horoscope. Be decisive and make clear moves.
Harness this forward-moving planetary energy whether you’re looking to get a mortgage or loan, you want to be more financially independent or you have some new and exciting ideas on how to secure your financial future.
