This month, Taurus, you are in a process of transformation with regard to your career and professional life, and, to a lesser extent, your partnerships of all kinds. You have recently been engaged in revising your understanding of career choices and responsibilities, and have perhaps assumed as well a more inclusive viewpoint that takes matters of your heart and soul more seriously into the blend of motivations. This process continues into the current month with a mixed bag of results. On the one hand, you are seeing the need to expand your concept of what you are truly up to include a more compassionate and even-sided attitude, while on the other you have some confusion about these potential realignments. Taurus is a fixed sign, and resists change, and yet with highlighted Uranus located in your sign, plus Jupiter, the impulse for novelty is almost overpowering! The March 10th Pisces New Moon may increase the pressure for meaningful yet graceful metamorphosis. Trickster Uranus is once again highlighted, along with your ruler, Venus, coming into aspect with nebulous Neptune, potentially increasing your sense of confusion. Along with being a trifle unworldly, the Neptunian archetype does indicate a spiritual and idealized viewpoint that might help with what you are trying – deep down – to pull off.

March begins in the wake of the New Moon in Aquarius from February in your career sector, which also featured Uranus in your sign, bringing surprises and shakeups to areas of your life such as your health, sense of personal identity, or physical appearance. You have been partaking of the Trickster archetype in your everyday personal life and in the persona with which you meet the world, so that you are a bit of an odd ball these days, not in your most basic nature but it this touch of the gods that at times come over you. Along with the surprise events that seem to keep happening, there is also the distinct possibility of unexpected enlightenment along the way as well.
For the first 11 days of March, as the older Aquarius lunation cycle wears down, Venus, the ruler of your solar chart, is in Aquarius as well, suggesting an overall focus on your career and public reputation, perhaps the accolades of your profession. Once Venus enters the next sign this preponderance alters and you might feel a notable shift.
From March 7th to 8th , Mercury conjoins Neptune in Pisces, in your social sector, indicating a tendency for your thoughts to take an introspective or a less-than-logical turn. There could be misplaced communication, idealization, self-deception or actual deception practiced upon you; perhaps a feeling of being outcast. This could even be a jumping-off point for getting serious about a new spiritual practice or hermeticism. You may feel momentarily connected to dimensions of experience beyond the physical and revel or wonder in that sensation.
From March 8th to the 10th, there could be shakeups as Mars in Aquarius applies square to Uranus in your sign while the Sun in Pisces is also sextile. You could feel ganged up on, misunderstood, or spread thin. Your career field might be rapidly transforming, such as perhaps a new responsibility or restructuring. You may be concerned with your public reputation to the point that it is anxiety inducing You might be addressing outdated ideas and perceptions in your career or the public.
The New Moon in Pisces on March 10th at 1am PST in your sector of allies and societal impact features a sextile between Pluto in Aquarius and Mercury in Aries, emphasizing public transformation, collective action, diversification, communications and technology. You may increase networking, appreciate a different point of view, realize a helpful solution, start over in a field or with a group of friends. There may be a tendency toward communication that is hasty, competitive, or conflict driven. There may be questions of skill level, and new truths. Speed, accuracy, bravery and decisiveness may be required to achieve a result.
As Venus enters Pisces on March 11th, you may sense an overall shift in attention to resources and abilities. A relationship, generosity and creativity could boost your sense of stability. You may meet an amazing woman, artist, or love. You may encounter nurturing support or exchange beautiful gifts with another!
On March 16th, the Sun conjoins Neptune in Pisces suggesting self-alignment and delving into the unknown parts of the psyche. This is also the Moon’s First Quarter, so that there is a degree of tension in the air, as what was intended conceptually in the New Moon timing from a week ago runs into real-world obstacles. With Neptune involved these could amount to misconceptions or over-idealizations. Partners can come into this with an idea of the entire truth of it all. There could be a development around your friendships, gifts, and support.
From March 20th to the 21st, the Sun in Aries applies in an inferior sextile to Pluto in Aquarius at the top of your solar chart, applying to your sectors of career and dream imagination or unconscious process. During this time, you might be transformed in your awareness of everything that is going on beneath your surface layers, as well as ego, internal wisdom, or inspired perception. On the 21st, Venus also conjoins Saturn in Pisces in your sector of goals and networks. This energy could temporarily elicit greater boundaries in romance or a creative field, or a shutdown of fresh contacts or existing group identities. There could be increased attention on commitment, culture, custom, formalism, traditionalism or manners.
Mars enters Pisces on March 22nd and remains there through the next month. With Mars now in Pisces, you might notice an increase in energy where there have been limitations and slow progress. Idealism reigns, and the here-and-now is more diffuse and scattered than it was before. You may seek new friends, new groups, or assert a new truth.
The Full Moon and lunar eclipse in Libra lands on March 25th at 12am PDT copresent Makemake in your sector of health regimens, day-to-day events and your work environment, and may illuminate themes relative to these areas and perhaps stemming from the very depths of your psyche. Venus in Pisces applies sextile Jupiter in Taurus and they are both in mutual reception, so that there could be assistance, advice, and inspiration. Caution: you may experience increased ease, fun and laughter! Idealism may be on your mind. Because this is a Full Moon eclipse, the energies present during this time may continue to unfold over the next six months.
From March 26th to 28th , Venus in Pisces applies sextile to Uranus in your sign. During this time, you may feel relief to your nervous system, or an increased social awareness.
