You may be feeling a sense of camaraderie with a group of people who are revealing themselves to be supportive and appreciate your skills. Community and new friendships could feel more important to you these days. Mars enters the sign of Gemini on the evening of the 3rd where he will transit until the 23rd of April. Mars in the sign of The Twins will likely increase your communicative interactions in the months ahead. You are stimulated by new ideas and get busier with written projects. You may also feel more argumentative and it could be especially important to channel any excess mental energy into constructive projects.
Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus remain in their square alignment from last month. Although not as close in terms of degrees of separation, their opposing archetypes of holding steady and limiting yourself, versus going all out for new experiences and novel ideas, might provide an underlying theme to your current activities and your planning. Don’t be too surprised if your finances tend to fluctuate, and try to see beyond these particulars to the larger truth that everything is ultimately Ok.
From March 3rd to the 5th, Mercury conjuncts Jupiter in Aquarius for a third time since the beginning of the year, highlighting your associations and also perhaps how they may be shifting your views and ideas. You could feel pulled towards greater humanitarian goals that involve your participation within a group that can help bring positive changes into the world.
The Sun transiting in Pisces, until the 20th, illuminates your private world, the one where you can forget about reality for a moment and get lost in reveries. You might be feeling especially inspired as the Sun meets Neptune on the 10th. Mystical insight could permeate your dreams in keeping with the Neptunian archetype, that dissolves the boundaries of the material world. You could also be feeling some form of divine discontent or a longing for romantic love. The New Moon in Pisces on the 13th is a particularly fertile one for you. Since it takes place in the introspective sector of your chart, you might be feeling more withdrawn or in need of solitude. The New Moon is conjunct Venus and Neptune which promises to bring a dreamy or romantic glow to this lunation. You may feel a kind of universal love or find greater inspiration if you have any artistic inclinations. It might be a good time to renew with your creative muse since your imagination will be more active than usual. Mercury enters Pisces on the 15th which implies that you could continue to experience creative insights through contemplative practices that help you connect with your unconscious.
The Sun enters Aries on the 20th, which marks the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and signals the beginning of a revitalizing period for you. Venus is not far behind the Sun, entering Aries on the 21st just in time for the First Quarter Moon in Cancer which highlights your roots, your family, and your home. You may well be undergoing a process of individualization, reaching for greater independence from your family and their expectations, or more fully exploring your roots. The introspective period of the last few weeks could have brought buried memories to the surface, which may allow you to find greater clarity in the weeks ahead. Mercury in Pisces sextile Uranus in Taurus on this same weekend of the 20th may bring creative ideas surrounding your income or insights about your sense of self-worth. Your priorities could be changing at this time, helping you reorganize your values in ways that are aligned with new perspectives. You could also be feeling pretty solid in terms of what you want to accomplish in the years to come and feel a renewed sense of your own unique direction that is calling you.

With Chiron closely involved with Venus and the Sun you might be caught up in issues surrounding your self-image.
