March 1st – Venus in Capricorn squares Uranus in Aries
This isn’t a major transit, but rather a rascally one. Venus likes attention, as does Capricorn (even though you’d be hard-pressed to get them to admit it… ha). And Uranus, well Uranus likes new, different, interesting, and life jarring. Thus, expect flirting, provoking, and the need for strange and interesting.
The only real downside of this might be you poke at your lover long enough to stir up some strong words… or perhaps you flirt with the new barista a little too hard for your sweetie’s peace of mind. Even still though, you’ll likely go home and make-up rather quickly.
If single, know you’ll be looking to mingle. Nothing long term though since a taste of fun is all you’re really after.
Fun day, although slightly off-kilter in just the less-definable of ways.
March 1st – Venus enters Aquarius
Venus will be in Aquarius for most of the month. Meaning, we’ll all get a tad less “warm to the touch” in our relationships.
Aquarius likes independence, freedom, and thoughts far more than action. Venus, on the other hand, likes hugs and sweet little notes. It’s likely rather apparent then that this pairing isn’t to either Venus’ or Aquarius’ liking.
The good news is, your friendships will grow and prosper. Aquarius likes casual, cool, calm, and friends. He always prefers detached observation. He just doesn’t much care for romance, lack of warmth, and deeply personal revelations. Which, by the way, are all the things Venus adores.
Thus, if you and your sweetie are already great friends, you can expect to have tons of fun together during the month of March. If, however, you’re courting someone new and expecting flowers, chocolates, and love songs written, it’s a no-go. No wining and dining here.
Still, it isn’t exactly the end of the world (well, other than to Miss Venus). Relationships will survive, work will improve, groups will grow, friendships will multiply, and life will go on… but really, doesn’t it always? Only half-kidding, February beat the bubbles right out of me…. sigh!
Enough about me though… go forth and multiply in all things mental and preferably lukewarm.
March 5th – Mercury goes Retrograde in Pisces
Oh Good Grief. Being a Virgo, who shares Mercury’s rulership with Gemini, I always, always, always SO dread Mercury Retrogrades. Simultaneously though I also realize that every single one of us experiences much the same thing.
With this particular one, being in the sign of Pisces, we’ll all likely find ourselves at the bottom of a rabbit hole or two. After all, Pisces gets confused a lot. It is the two fish swimming in opposite directions. So “lost and looking for yourself” comes to mind.
On the plus side, Pisces are truly gentle, creative, music-loving artists who excel at loving, writing, sculpting, and yes, getting confused… a lot. Hmmmm.
As a result, it might feel like our minds and ability to speak clearly are spinning about like some drunken game of Pin-the-Tail-on-the-Whatever. Thus leaving us confused and sticking pins in people who are also blind-folded and armed with sharp objects. Troublesome to say the least.
Yet many of us have felt like we’re mentally swimming in emotional sludge since mid-February when Mercury plunged into the watery depths of this fish sign. So why not give us all a mild case of slanted perception, skewed speech, and bucket loads of tainted emotions if only to see what we can do with it? Again, I got beat up last month (lol). Many of you likely did as well though, so you know I speak the truth.
As per usual, expect computers to break, mail to get lost, words to be misconstrued, thinking to become blurred, and cars to crash into other cars, buildings, ponds, and the errant turtle, fish, or salamander. And do not expect people to understand what you’re saying entirely. Don’t even expect to understand yourself sometimes.
The good news (and yes, I’m digging deep here) is that Mercury going retrograde is meant to slow us down in order to get us to quit taking things we usually take-for-granted (things like speaking and thinking) and focus. It wants us to pay attention to the daily details of our lives and perfect them further. This month we’ll find ourselves doing just that while wearing beer-goggles.
Still, Mercury obviously has faith in us, so let’s at least agree to slosh our way through this together. Oh, and give our fellow sloppy thinking humans a break when words come out wrong or payments get delayed.
Also, don’t sign contracts if it can be helped. Don’t commit to anything long-term either. Plus, make sure everyone really understood what you said. Be as clear, concise, and organized as you possibly can be. And please, for Pete’s sake, stay in your lane.
March 6th – New Moon in Pisces
Our New Beginnings this month also is under the direct supervision of Pisces. However, the Moon represents our emotions, our artistry, our spirituality, and our downright grooviness. Meaning, if you’re wanting to begin anything new, anything inspired, anything altruistic and terribly personal, do it now.
Yes, we have Mercury retrograde for the next few weeks making it a little hard to make presentations and get people on-board with our new ideas. I get that. BUT… if there’s anything you can do that doesn’t require a ton of conscious input (art rarely does, as the great work is always more inspired than thought-out), do that.
We’ll all be far more sensitive, as well as far less ego-oriented, for the next few weeks. As such, doing something that benefits, moves, or takes the edge off of the real world for others is strongly encouraged. Provided, of course, you don’t sign up for the long-haul since you’re feeling far more giving and benevolent than you will be a few weeks from now.
I’d suggest simply doing what you can today. By all means, think outside of the proverbial box (you won’t be aware of the box anyway) and go for all things musical, artistic, romantic, altered, and beautiful. It’s a good time to let your particular brand of strange shine. It’s also a good time to take breaks, naps, and daydream.
Progress is possible, provided you pick the subject matter for your progress intuitively rather than logically.
March 6th – Uranus enters Taurus
This transit only enhances everything I said above. Primarily so because Taurus is ruled by Venus, who happens to also love beauty, art, creating, and self-expression. Granted, Uranus likes new and edgy. He doesn’t really care so much about art either. AND… he doesn’t give one hoot about finances and the material world. BUT… Taurus does.
Taurus likes nice things, pampering, and having its own way. Uranus likes the “having its own way” part too. This could result in all of us getting pretty stuck in our ideas about what precisely what it is we’re going to be creating for the next few weeks.
Cool thing is, it could be something super smart, new, beautiful, and unlike anything else we’ve done before. So combining the two energies involved in this would be excellent… just let them flow without resistance. Sure, they may bicker occasionally. Simply sit back, pick up a brush or your tool of choice, and start without expectation and see what comes out.
Know too that Uranus has been in the sign of pioneering and progress-motivated Aries for the last 7 years, so this is a BIG deal. Uranus changing signs is an overhaul of our traditions and way of living within the material universe we have created. Today it’s moving from progressive Aries into conservative Taurus, a place it hasn’t occupied since 1942. Uranus isn’t particularly fond of Taurus, it feels it weakens it. So yes, this feels slightly awkward and uncomfortable for all of us.
Most likely we’ll feel it in our money pockets. Taurus rules money, security, work, and as mentioned, arts and music. Expect then to find new ways of making, keeping, spending, and transacting all of the aforementioned. Reason being, we’ll all become far less open to taking risk and placing bets (something Aries loves). Instead, we’ll find ourselves wanting settlements and new ways of managing our material things. End goal being… becoming far more self-sufficient.
Self expression via art and true talent are highlighted this month. As is becoming far less dependent on others for any and all things. We want to not only be self-sufficient, but also self-managed. Neither Uranus nor Taurus loves being told what to do.
I expect many new businesses to open up in the next few years, small businesses. I also expect an explosion in gardening your own food, creating your own unique products, and finding different ways to structure your immediate environment in order to have more control over your world and your cash.
Again, this will feel off-putting at first considering these two energies don’t operate anywhere near similar. Still, all in all, Uranus can usher in needed change while Taurus focuses on the structure, the safety, and the details of implementing it. It’ll work, provided we’re all open to new, and yet thanks to Taurus, relatively well thought out changes.
March 10th – Mars in Taurus sextiles Neptune in Pisces
This is a very small transit, yet since Taurus and Neptune (ruler of Pisces) and Pisces are all involved, I thought I’d share it.
How it will affect you for the next few days is you’ll likely find thinking and dreaming up new schemes filling up a good portion of your day. You’ll also likely find yourself trying to figure out what it is you want to do “next”. As well as uncovering what really matters to you. All in the hopes of finding a way to do more of what inspires you and less of the day-to-day stuff none of us like to do.
This is a smooth, easy time. It’s a time for opening up via meditating, or maybe just getting quiet, and allowing ideas to float in and float out… jotting down the ones that speak to your heart and soul.
It’s another time of less ego and more compassion. Again though, don’t sign up for anything long-term. Instead, go with the flow and allow yourself to bask in whatever ideas strike your fancy. It’s a soft day. Another day full of artistic expression, if you’re so inclined.
March 14th – Mars in Taurus trines Saturn in Capricorn
This transit encourages us to finish up projects that require great attention to detail (Saturn and Capricorn). It’s a time packed full of focus, ambition to do your best work, and completion.
This is not a pie-in-the-sky day. Usually Mars finds focusing on anything at all totally nerve splitting. But not for the next few days. Saturn has roped him in, as has Taurus, and said “do your best work”. And he, having the brawn to do just that, is complying and moving things forward.
Therefore, it’s a great day for progress, especially if it doesn’t involve complex plans or major moves. Nope. Today you shine through the little details you add to anything. The extra coat of paint, the texture added to the newest sculpture, or even, the precise right words to end your long awaited book or proposal perfectly.
Focus, detail, and the desire to make things stunning is what this day is made of.
March 20th – Full Moon in Libra – Spring Equinox
Even this month’s Full Moon isn’t likely to be too jarring. Yes, I’d still expect some emotional expression. Yet this month that expression will likely not come at the expense of someone else’s peace.
Libra wants balance, fairness, polite conversation, and harmony. Consequently, your desire to keep things nice and politically correct will likely outweigh any emotions you might feel need expressing. I will say though that you really should speak your truth despite what you feel others are prepared to hear. Otherwise things tend to bottle up and explode somewhere down the road when least expected.
Maybe the best thing to do is talk softly even when speaking about hard subjects. Ask for feedback whenever you feel you’ve hit a soft spot, and let your listener voice their objections and observations as well.
Too, this is a culmination of all things began a few weeks ago. Not meaning that your newest project is finished, rather, that it is progressing along enough now for you to measure if it’s something you wish to alter or keep at.
Expect Full Moon behavior, but in a Libra fashion. As such, this shouldn’t be too trying of a time, provided again, that you don’t hold things in.
Also, go plant some seeds and unveil what you’ve been planning over the winter. Spring makes everything new, better, and shiny. Go grow some stuff!
March 20th – Sun enters Aries
The Sun entering “enthusiastic and full of gusto” Aries, on the same day as a Full Moon in Libra, might ensure you don’t do much holding back (ha).
Aries does tend to blurt things out whenever provoked. Aries also has one firestorm of a temper. Problem is, Aries expresses, the rest of us cower, and then when it’s over Aries wonders why we haven’t moved on as swiftly as they have. If you know an Aries, you know I speak the truth.
So here’s the thing, with the influence of Libra and the Full Moon, one of two things will happen. First being, Libra wins the war and we say what’s on our minds, but no feelings get trampled in the process. OR… Aries wins the war and everyone hears every danged thing on your mind. Plus, you’re very dramatic and don’t hesitate to engage in posturing, gesturing, and tossing a vase or two off the table (lol).
It is the surest measure of a true toss-up. Aries and Libra are polar opposites in the chart. Now that doesn’t guarantee an all-out-war. It’s more like “the hair of the dog that bit you” type of thing. Maybe we’ll yell at someone, then apologize and buy them chocolate right after. Or maybe we’ll smile, nod, and go our own way while secretly nudging the chair they’re getting ready to sit down on slightly out of their behind’s ability to reach.
We’ll see. Might be an interesting day full of Yin, Yang, Loud, Soft, and Passive-Aggressive. Or maybe we’ll all figure out how to blend the two and speak softly while carrying the biggest stick we can find.
OH… and don’t forget, Aries will be ruling our Sun for the next month. In a couple of days the Full Moon will lose it’s oppositional pull so we’ll all settle into more Arian types of temperaments. Temperaments that consist of far more risk taking and calling things as we see them. Forward movement is nearly assured, as is self expression, lots of laughing, and tons of new entrepreneurial ideas. Go do you is the theme.
March 20th – Mars in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn
Another small transit, but a nice one. Our energy planet is still in plodding and safety oriented Taurus, and it’s making nice to our planet of reform and reconstruction (Pluto) who is occupying the sign of determination and perseverance (Capricorn).
In essence, we’ll all be far more concerned with observing the state of our lives, jobs, finances, and relationships. We’ll be reviewing why we are where we are, along with trying to figure out how to change what we don’t like (Pluto).
Now we won’t likely be aggressive with our findings, thanks to the trine. Meaning, no one will find our desire to move onward and upward threatening, and as a result, challenge us about the changes (something Pluto often incites). All attributable to the fact that we are really looking towards the good of the whole instead of the good of only us.
In fact, I’d encourage everyone this month, and especially during the next few days, to really sit down, take a break from your normal routine, and really look at the why’s and why nots of your life. Pluto does so love to pluck out the weeds so something nicer can grow. Today is the day you’ll likely see weeds you hadn’t even realized existed before. Sit and ponder my friends.
March 21st – Venus in Aquarius squares Mars in Taurus
It’s a relationship-testing type of day. If you’re in a good relationship you can expect to work some things through. You want connection, involvement, and a lot of touching.
If, however, your relationship is a tad more stressed, arguments are definitely a possibility. Really bad relationships might end up being tested to the point of breaking.
The bottom line is, Venus loves love, both the giving and receiving of it. Mars like action and assertion. In a square relationship there’s always friction. There are things that need to be worked on, worked out, and expressed. Hence, we have days like today.
It’s a high energy day in the love department. You’ll definitely know how healthy your relationship is by the end of it. It can be fun though, provided you’ve already done the heavy lifting. Otherwise, prepare to “beef up”.
March 21st – Venus in Aquarius sextiles Jupiter in Sagittarius
This aspect adds a needed dash of pleasantries to the above transit. Thus, I doubt any relationships will end today, or if they do, it’ll be a mutually consensual ending.
Since we the two most positive planets involved in all aspects of our lives right now, nothing too horrible can happen.
Again though, this isn’t a big aspect. Yet its influence may affect every aspect of your life.
Expect possible promotions, great deals, financial bonuses, fun relationship excursions, and more. This aspect is positive in every way.
March 26th – Venus enters Pisces
When Venus enters into the sign of the artist there’s a compassion and a softness to it. For the next month you can reasonably expect to love and be loved more thoroughly. You may also encounter romance, flowers, and gentleness.
Too, your creativity soars. Regardless of whether that pertains to writing, creating, hanging wallpaper, or expressing yourself to your sweetie. It really is the month for the creators out there.
Pisces also largely negates the ego. Therefore we’ll all become givers more so than takers. Although we will receive very graciously, so feel free to give whatever you feel like giving (ha).
This is a spiritual, kind, and gracious place for Venus to find itself. Enjoy, listen to some great music, and smooch away.
March 27th – Venus in Pisces sextiles Uranus in Taurus
Although this too is a small-ish transit, whenever Uranus is involved, in pretty much of anything, it’s worth mentioning.
Today you’ll find you still crave something new and exciting, but with the sextile, you’ll do so in a very nonthreatening-to-your-current-relationship sort of way. Who knows, you might just opt to try something new and different with your sweetie.
And if no sweetie exists, one just might emerge… you’ll definitely be up for it. Thing is, with Uranus transits you’re never guaranteed permanence in a new relationship, but you are guaranteed life changing events. As a result it’s worth the energy exerted to explore such things. You’ll likely figure out precisely what’s been missing in relationships long gone, at the very least. Super fun!
It’s a good day to love, create, explore, make new friends, have a party, celebrate life, and do whatever two mutually consenting adults agree to do.
March 28th – Mercury goes Direct in Pisces
Thank heavens! We have our planet of communication finally turning itself right once more. Granted, it takes a few days for the spinning to stop, but today we’ll at least be able to piece words coherently together. Yes, Pisces is still involved, but when direct, it brings out the poet and grace in all of us. Pisces does so love to please.
Therefore, everything that’s been slightly off-kilter all month will begin to not only spin correctly, but also politely. Apologies will be given and new ideas shared. Who knows, we might even discover the inner artist in ourselves this month. If so, whatever it is you’ve been working on or towards will likely be unveiled, as well as well received, in the days to come.
Mail gets delivered. Texts get returned. Computers stop stopping. AND… our thoughts begin to hum along to the specific enchanting rhythm only Pisces can usher in.
March 30th/31st – Mars enters Gemini
Our planet of muscles and energy enters into “always slightly hectic” Gemini. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Rather, it’s an energetic burst of enthusiasm that will awaken us from the reverie of the past month. Likely leaving all of us shell-shocked by the mere force of it.
We’ll want to learn, talk, share, explore, and do anything but concentrate. Enough of the concentrating already (Gemini’s said to add that).
Now, we want to touch, taste, and build it all.
We become fully alert, more-than-slightly sarcastic, and witty little brainiacs who need something to do every minute of the day… or at the very least, tending to.
We’ll get things done though. Preferably things that require zero attention to detail. Even better, hopefully it’ll be time to promote whatever it was we’ve been working on. We need to talk, dance, show off, and explore reactions, as well as begin new projects. BORING!
Biggest caution is simply this… don’t over-speak, over-do, or over-estimate your capabilities. Other than that though, fly high you crazy little jacked up bee.
Nerves, oh yes, we must watch out for wearing ourselves completely down. Moderate the caffeine… yes, for sure, do that.
