While it’s the end of the solar year for you (until March 20th), dear Aries, and this generally signals a period in which you are in the relative backwoods and possibly dealing with endings in your life, there is nevertheless much to be excited about in March. Uranus gets you all riled up and itching to make radical changes. You are building and strengthening your courage. The 10th is strong for romance and friendship. You can charm the birds out of the trees on the 16-17th, and you’ll be filled with wonderful (and possibly marketable) ideas. The 21st brings the gumption to jump-start the changes you’ve only been dreaming about. Life is certainly looking up! However, you may struggle with people or situations from your past around the 2-3.
March begins with strong energy for social activity, dear Taurus, and as it progresses, you begin to enjoy more time away from demanding or competitive situations.

The 3-6th brings the possibility of new or improved friendships. Past good deeds bear fruit on the 9-10th, and opportunities to advance emerge as a result. The 18-20th can bring romantic revelations.
Others tend to be following your lead in March, dear Gemini. You can’t seem to escape attention, as others are especially aware of what you have or haven’t done.

Set time aside for self-improvement projects and more serious study.
