Notes/Overview: In March 2012, Mars continues to retrograde in Virgo all month. Mercury begins its retrograde in Aries on March 12th, reverses into Pisces on the 23rd, and turns direct on April 4th.
A Full Moon occurs at 18 Virgo on the 8th, and a New Moon occurs at 2 Aries on the 22nd.
Work may be piling up this month, dear Aries, largely because you are putting much energy into fixing problems and revising old work. However, opportunities abound for you to increase your income. Ideas may be best left in the incubation stage. You’re more likely to find success if you wait to launch new projects later, as all of the details are not yet clear. The 12-14 can bring a discovery of a lost resource or the re-emerging of someone from your past. The 22nd brings a feeling of emotional renewal.
The month can bring great personal opportunities, dear Taurus. Personal popularity, especially with friends, runs high. The 12-14 can bring successful social events, travel opportunities, and special announcements. Your thinking is long term and you are craving a sense of permanency. Nevertheless, you have some adjustments to make in your love relationships and/or relationships with children. Revelations regarding these matters occur around the Full Moon on the 8th. You’ll be longing for more down time and solitude in the last week of March. Listen to inner signals and get extra rest.
You begin March at a yearly career peak, dear Gemini. You may not know the direction in which you are headed just now, but you are certainly bringing more creativity and spunk to the professional table. From the 12th forward, take greater care when communicating your observations and needs. Make your true intentions known in order to minimize misunderstandings. While your love life is becoming more private and may involve some personal sacrifices in March, mid-month brings strong energy for attraction and possibly the revival of an old relationship.
Love and friendship are tied together in wonderful ways this month, dear Cancer. Cementing a bond with a friend or love interest may be tricky, and might require a pledge to live in the moment, but rewarding. Nevertheless, communication mix-ups are probable this month. Aim to be especially clear or to sidestep making decisions until you are ready. Don’t commit unless you are certain you can follow through. The last week of March brings a burst of new and excitable energy to your career, and you are anxious to create a buzz.
Opportunities to increase exposure and to gain recognition for your unique style of expression and creativity are strong this month, dear Leo. While an increase in income may not be realized until May, you are laying important groundwork for future pay raises. The discovery of untapped resources or areas of drain can help you create a new and improved budget. Go over all details carefully. A money-making idea may need refinement before it can be set in motion. March is strong for career, public relations, and stabilizing your life in important ways.
You may be dealing with significant delays when it comes to your personal plans this month, dear Virgo, and this gives you the opportunity to slow down long enough to make important refinements. Tame impulsiveness and aim to work at the things you do best rather than taking on new endeavors, just for the time being. You will be tending to others’ needs much of the month, and your ability to adapt quickly will strongly affect your success. Watch for overspending in March. Take more time to assess your needs and wants.
Work can be demanding but also invigorating in March, dear Libra. Some restlessness with your current routines is stimulated now, largely due to uncertainty about where exactly you are heading professionally speaking. Focus on doing your best instead of allowing a lack of direction interfere with productivity. In time, direction and purpose will be revealed. Some impulsiveness in the relationship department can lead to confusing or unpredictable situations. Letting go of unhealthy relating patterns is essential in order to move forward. Good news can come in the areas of taxes and loans mid-month.
March is very strong for love relationships, dear Scorpio. Opportunities arise to spice up an existing or old connection, or to attract a significant relationship. There is no need to make sweeping decisions just yet, but important groundwork can be laid now. Some of you may revive an old friendship. A partner may come into some extra money this month. Work can involve some mix-ups and slowdowns. Going over work that you thought was complete may be necessary. Stay as flexible as possible and allow for last-minute changes of plans and schedules.
Work can pose some challenges in the form of delays this month, dear Sagittarius, but opportunities arise to improve working conditions. Stimulating social connections can be made through business contacts. Be cautious when it comes to mixing personal and professional arenas, however. Misunderstandings can be plenty in March, and you’ll want to avoid “bad press”. Offers may come from a previous employer or industry mid-month. Home and family matters are well starred in March. It’s a strong period for strengthening bonds and taking charge of the household.
Romance and creative self-expression are strong areas for you in March, dear Capricorn. Others are seeing your value, and admirers are many. Friends can be especially supportive this month, and you are happy to return favors. Your social life is improved and in focus, while more worldly ambitions temporarily fade into the background. It may be difficult to focus your attention, but you may very well benefit emotionally from this change of pace. Branch out, make connections, and tend to family matters, which may be a little hectic in the last week of March.
Much joy can be found with family and in the home environment this month, dear Aquarius. It’s easier to balance professional and personal endeavors with minimal interference between the two. More money may be spent on enhancing comfort, beauty, and entertainment at home. These things can also be improved without expense, through creative reorganization and spending extra time on family activities. Attention should be drawn to money management in March, as there can be some problems with offers falling through or unexpected expenses this month. Know your limits.
You are likely to feel “large and in charge” this month, dear Pisces, and you’re bound to wear your increased confidence and independence well. It’s a very strong month for your social life in general, although close partnerships require considerate attention and care. Business and money-making ideas in the last week of the month may very well be golden, but take at least a few weeks to sort out the details before launching entirely new initiatives. While unique and creative ideas are vital, patience and planning are the authors of most success stories.
