Notes/Overview: In March 2013, Saturn in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn on the 8th, and a New Moon occurs on the 11th at 21 Pisces. On March 17th, Mercury turns direct, after a retrograde period that began February 23rd. A Full Moon occurs on March 27th in the sign of Libra (6 degrees).
There are some loose ends to tie this month, dear Aries. Those endeavors, and possibly relationships, that are in private or behind the scenes tend to figure strongly and thrive, particularly from the 4-6. The 8-9 is excellent for research of a financial or business strategy – it may be something that you’ve come up with in the past, but now deserves special attention. People from your past could be involved now. As March progresses, it can be as if you are emerging from a waking sleep with planets, one by one, emerging from your privacy sector and moving into your sign. From the 12th forward, your energy levels run high (sometimes too high) and your pioneering instincts are strong. By the 21st, the Sun and Venus are in your sign, and others are taking note. This is a fabulous period for charm and attractiveness. The 27-30 is a power period for you, but it can also be an emotional and impulsive time. Try not to overdo it! You can be rebellious and seeking freedom possibly at all costs.
March can bring opportunities to clinch a deal and cement a bond, or there can be a positive legal outcome, dear Taurus. However, there can be some financial matters involved that require extra thought. The New Moon on the 11th brings new energy to friendships and long-term goals. From the 17th forward, you will benefit from working on clearing up any problems that have cropped up with friends. This is a time for feeling personally hopeful, emotionally satisfied, and socially popular. Friendships might be renewed or revitalized. In the last few days of March, health or work problems can make themselves known, quite suddenly. For some of you, a neglected matter from the past can re-emerge, or there can be a strong temptation to impulsively act on a secret desire. Get extra rest and treat any slow-downs as a sign that you may need more time to recoup, or to reconsider. You are beginning a period best used for emotional renewal, tying up loose ends, and laying low.
The month ahead is strong for networking, friendships, and new approaches in your career, dear Gemini. The first ten days of March can find you streamlining your routines, heavily involved in research, and highly motivated in work and health matters. The New Moon on the 11th brings fresh energy for career and reputation matters, although it’s better to wait until after the 17th to launch new projects. As well, the second half of the month is more auspicious for clearing up misunderstandings with authority figures. From the 22nd through to the end of the month, there can be surprising happenings with friends or acquaintances and possibly a love relationship. Unexpected meetings, disruptions, or changes that point you in a new direction can occur now. Love requires emotional space and acceptance, and some of you could find love through or with friends and groups. It’s also a time when inspiration comes suddenly, and you could pick up new, and possibly radically different, interests or goals at this time.
This is a month in which you can be more experimental, spontaneous, and adventurous than usual, dear Cancer. Your need to “get away from it all” is powerful. Travel or educational plans have a better chance of coming together after the 17th. You are likely to feel the need to assert your independence, with those in authority, family, and/or a partner in March. You have a stronger desire to define your relationships, or to come to a deeper understanding and possibly commitment. Around the 22nd, you might make an unexpected bold career-related move, or experience a disruption that sets you on a new course altogether. Opportunities can emerge around the 28th that also seem to come from out of the blue. The last week of the month can bring a reality check, as well as a reminder that you need the support of family in order to feel confident enough to reach for the stars in other areas of your life. A significant other might try to rein you in, but it’s important to avoid getting involved in a power struggle now.
The first ten days of March are strong for research and strategy, dear Leo. While you should wait to begin new projects until after the 17th, you can be busy refining and reworking those already in progress, and should meet with success. Finances deserve special attention, particularly shared money and property as well as loans and support payments. Energetically speaking, the month picks up pace considerably by the 12th, and even more so after the 21st. You could feel as if you are moving out of the dark and into the light, and you’re likely to find the spirit and motivation to embark on unusual or simply different adventures. There are some wonderful and perhaps surprising opportunities that have to do with legal affairs, travel, or education this month, particularly around the 21-23 and 27-29. Nevertheless, complications and setbacks are likely to follow, especially if you’ve acted too rashly. Love might be found, or enhanced, through experiences and ventures far beyond the usual routine.
Dear Virgo, you have been learning the value of waiting for strategic moments to express yourself and to choose your words more carefully with Saturn in your communications sector this year. You might even find that if you hold back opinions or concerns until you’ve truly processed them, you no longer find it wise to express them at all. While others may wonder why you’re so quiet, this is in fact an important learning experience for you, as you discover that what you say can impact the direction of your life in profound ways. The first ten days of March are strong for these discoveries, as well as for research and review. New beginnings in a partnership are stimulated after the New Moon on the 11th, and the 17th brings more forward-looking energy to a relationship. In the last week of the month, there can be a surprising or sudden show of support, emotional or financial. Some of you could connect intimately with someone seemingly out of the blue, or there can be an unanticipated financial matter to manage.
A strong focus on your health and work routines continues in March, dear Libra. You could be digging up interesting information now, and research of all kinds can be very beneficial. Close partnerships begin to heat up towards mid-month, and your attention shifts to significant others even more so by the 20-21. The last week of the month brings an emotional Full Moon in your sign, and emotions bubble up to the surface with great force, as well as a big commotion in your partnership sector. Sudden changes, new directions, and strong emotions characterize this period. It’s a powerful period for your relationships (this continues into the first week of April), and while spontaneity is the name of the game at this time, try to avoid rash or careless decisions. Some of you could begin an exciting, but possible short-term, relationship at this time. Others bring surprises into your life. Be open to new ideas and stimulation, but experiment wisely and creatively. Don’t allow someone else steamroll over your personal plans.
Romance and pleasure-seeking are in strong focus this month, dear Scorpio. Desires come on quickly and with great force in March and April. You are especially companionable and open to new experiences, although perhaps starry-eyed at times. Romantic illusions or self-deceptions should be watched for. People from the past could be in strong focus this month. You can experience some feelings of regret or hesitance from the 23rd, when responsibilities make themselves known. Enjoy yourself, but keep expectations realistic. From the 27th and into April, surprising events and feelings can arise, particularly in the areas of work, daily routines, and health. Hidden issues and information can surface. Some of you could meet a romantic partner through any of these things, and others might find that sudden events or opportunities push them into a new direction in their work or with health and wellbeing endeavors. Be open and willing to make necessary changes, but avoid overly hasty or rebellious actions.
March is strong for making memories with family and for getting some much-needed down time, dear Sagittarius. Even so, domestic life is likely to be animated at times, but mostly in a pleasurable way. From the 20th, a shift of focus to more creative, sociable, and pleasure-seeking activities occurs. Surprises are in store, and they’re pointing you in new directions. There could also be surprising turns of events surrounding creative projects, romance, friends, and children at this time. Invitations to go out and have some fun should be grabbed, but try to keep one foot on the ground, particularly when it comes to money. The inner risk-taker is awakened now, and it will be important to have some sense of where you might be headed before you take off. Small risks, however, could very well pay off. Adjustments need to be made in a close partnership or friendship – grievances regarding money or past problems need to be addressed. The last week of the month can involve some social drama in your life. It’s important to give everyone some space, as there is a rebellious, freedom-seeking energy at this time.
March 4-8 is a very strong period for your relationships, dear Capricorn, and in particular with friends and siblings. Even with Mercury retrograde (until the 17th), you can manage to strengthen your relationships through shows of support and positive actions. Most of March is excellent for collecting information, research of any kind, and work that involves refining and editing. By month’s end, you’ll be ready to move new projects ahead. Until then, work on getting things right. There can be surprising events and circumstances surrounding home and family from the 22nd forward. Keep in mind that desires can come on quite suddenly, but may not be long-lasting, so that if you have a sudden and seemingly urgent desire to redecorate or part ways with someone close to you, you may want to wait a few days to see if the desire sticks with you. Don’t dismiss your urges, as they could be inspired, but take a bit of time on them. The Full Moon on the 27th can be tense for you, as you could feel a lot of pressure to perform, but don’t let emotions trip you up. You don’t need to push so hard.
March is strong for gathering information and for inspired money-making ideas, dear Aquarius. While you may want to wait before launching your more important business or financial plans until the end of the month, pay special attention to the ideas coming to you throughout March, and do your research. Your initiative is stronger than usual from mid-month, and your taste for the new and untried is powerful. A partner is in your corner, and an important meeting of minds can occur in the last week of the month. Your powers of attraction skyrocket, and outstanding creative opportunities arise. You could be the go-to person for information and know-how. New interests and possibly love opportunities can be part of the picture in the last week of the month. Some of you could meet someone special through the phone, online, at school, or possibly in your own neighborhood with your relationship ruler (the Sun), your own ruler (Uranus), and the love planet (Venus) aligning in your communications sector. The Full Moon on the 27th can bring surprising news from a relative or from afar. You may also be dealing with unexpected transportation issues, whether local or long distance.
The month ahead is a strong one for you, dear Pisces, in terms of personal influence, goal-setting, and finances. The New Moon on the 11th launches a period of increased personal power and charisma, and on the 17th, Mercury ends its retrograde period in your sign. This gives you the green light to begin moving personal projects ahead. You are bolder than usual, and motivated to pursue what you want and to prove your value. There may be job offers and opportunities, and some of you could be receiving significant gifts or bonuses. The last week of the month can stimulate a financial breakthrough, or simply a sudden purchase, but whatever does occur, it seems out of the blue and unexpected. Opportunities to advance business and financial goals can arise now. You might also be asserting your independence in surprising ways – if others have been confining or criticizing you, this can be a time when you defend yourself and demand fairer treatment.
