March 2018 Planetary Overview:
A month to get inspired, organized and to move forward with purpose.
The month kicks off with the Virgo full Moon on the 1st, the first of two full Moons in March. And as it combines with a Venus-Jupiter interaction on the same day, it’s a perfect time to get clear about what you want to achieve and make plans to head in that direction. The Sun and Neptune connect on the 4th, boosting your imagination, inspiration and opens doors of opportunity. This energy is in the sign of Pisces, so love is also very much on the astral radar.
During the second week of March, both Mercury (on the 5th) and Venus (on the 6th) will move to Aries, with communication becoming more urgent and love more passionate. However, relationships can also experience irritable interactions during this time. Jupiter will go retrograde on the 8th for a four-month period, which will turn our attention inwards, with much soul searching.
As Mars trines Uranus on the 11th, unusual options and opportunities can be presented. Be prepared to step out of your comfort zone. When you feel a little uncomfortable, it’s a sign that things are changing in your life. Venus will square Saturn on the 13th, further adding some brutal reality to situations. But there is some softening and good fortune on the way with a Sun-Jupiter interaction and new Moon in Pisces on the 17th. Mars will enter Capricorn and fire up your ambition for the next two months.
This year the Sun will move to Aries on the 20th, the spring equinox, a great time to recheck your goals and clean out anything not working. Mercury will go retrograde on 22nd, which means it will stay in the sign of Aries through till May. Venus and Pluto will square off on the 23rd, beware of power struggles, particularly with love and money. And a Sun-Mars square on the 24th can add more fuel to an already irritable situation – beware what you do and say.
The month closes with Venus in the spotlight. Venus-Uranus have an unpredictable connection on the 28th. On the 31st, Venus moves to Taurus, one of the signs it rules and is at home – good for love and finances. And the full Moon on the 31st is in Libra, the other sign Venus rules, signifying the start of something new and beautiful and the letting go of something no longer needed.
