This March marks an important juncture for you, Virgo. You are focused on all aspects of your relationship dynamic, peaking mid-month with the Pisces New Moon. You have been through a somewhat trying time of questioning much of what is going on in your life. Workplace details and day-to-day activities have perhaps meandered off course, while a deeper level of metamorphosis has also been going on. At a minimum these recent readjustments include your self-image and also your outer world presence in terms of career and professional life. New concepts have been flooding into your consciousness lately with also a great deal of commitment behind them, enabling you to begin to see them through to a vast new comprehension of your most basic values. This tests the courage of your convictions. At month’s end a mystical hurdle will be reached that brings a spiritual comprehension for the relevance of partnership in your life together with a view of your inner world including things that might be holding you back in that area; a glimpse into emotional hang-ups that could ultimately allow you to se your way clear to moving beyond them.

You enter the month of March riding the wave of the Full Moon in your sign from the end of February, which brought to the fore the issue of relationship in your life. You may be finding the middle ground between your wants and desires, and the needs of someone close to you in your life. With Saturn square Uranus in this Full Moon configuration, this beginning of the month could also see you mulling over illuminating insights in terms of what you rely upon to feel secure and grounded, versus your growing need for experimentation and freedom. With Venus and the Sun transiting in Pisces in your relationship sector you may be more willing to make concessions to keep the peace while simultaneously being confronted out of your comfort zone.
Venus forms a supportive sextile with Uranus, from the 2nd to the 3rd, which could bring exciting progress especially if you keep an open mind. You may feel the need to break free from self-imposed limitations and it could be a good time to try something different. You might need to revise partnerships or agreements with others that feel restrictive.
Mars enters the sign of Gemini on the evening of the 3rd which brings greater focus to your career and a change of pace over the following weeks. There could be opportunities for advancement in your chosen field which could also bring added responsibilities. You may feel more ambitious and willing to invest your energy towards the achievement of your goals.
From March 3rd to the 5th, Mercury conjoins Jupiter in Aquarius which could bring tangible traction for something that felt stuck or in a holding pattern since mid-January. Mercury is now direct and gaining speed in the organizational sector of your chart. It may feel easier to envision the steps needed for a long-term project as both logical thinking and perspective unite allowing for a broader and clearer picture to emerge.
Your significant partnerships are highlighted this month with the Sun transiting in Pisces until the 20th. Around the 10th of the month, the Sun conjuncts Neptune, which could make it harder to differentiate fact from fiction. You could have to wrestle with some ambiguity as the dreamy glow of Neptune casts its spell on your close relationships. The Sun conjunct Neptune may also bring a new level of understanding, allowing you to surrender to a process that is unfolding. You may feel uncertain about a situation while simultaneously having faith that it will all work out.
The Pisces New Moon takes place on the 13th, signaling the beginning of a new cycle for you with regard to relationship. Current partnerships will get a boost of energy, or you might find a new situation begins to unfold that was waiting in the wings until this second half of the month. With Venus and Neptune also tightly conjoined with the New Moon, there may be romantic or creative components emerging from a collaboration that feels inspiring. Neptune together with Venus in Pisces could also bring the idealization of a romantic scene or intensify feelings of love. Make sure that the intentions you are setting for yourself are anchored in reality and clear. There could also be at this time a tendency to sacrifice some of your well-being to please others.
Mercury enters Pisces on the 15th which continues to bring dialogues and focus on relationships in the weeks ahead.
The Sun enters Aries on March 20th with the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Venus follows, entering Aries on the 21st. The Sun and Venus’s ingress into this Cardinal Fire sign highlights your close collaborations and intimate partnerships in the month ahead. Things may start to move faster with the Sun’s ingress into Aries. You may be moving into a deeper understanding of what binds you to another or discover how profound your feelings are. You may also uncover hidden fears or anxieties surrounding your partnerships, especially when it comes to compromising versus finding greater independence.
The First Quarter Moon in Cancer on the 21st may bring some conflicting pressure and a desire to take the initiatives in your collaborations. You may be getting impatient to move ahead with an idea and feel that others are not following your pace. You could have the energy to get a lot done but you may have to accept that not everyone has the same goals as you.
Also on the 21st, Mars currently transiting in Gemini comes into a supportive sextile with Saturn in Aquarius which promises clarity and forward momentum, especially for organizational matters. There will be much determination and endurance available at this time especially if you are actively trying to bring some structure into your life. Mars conjuncts the North Node in Gemini in your vocational sector from the 25th to the 27th while Venus joins the Sun in Aries, which may bring advancement in your career with the support or assets of your close collaborators.
The Full Moon in Libra on the 28th takes place in the financial sector of your chart, highlighting your resources and also your sense of self-worth. This latter might be closely linked to the feedback you are getting from others. Venus rules this Full Moon in Libra, and is tightly conjoined with both the Sun and Chiron in Aries, in your intimacy sector, speaking of the need to assess how you approach your collaborations with others and what you expect to get from them. Inner wounding could also raise its problematic head considering the highlighted presence of Chiron in this picture. You might want to ask – Is it worth it? Perhaps the time has come to assess your allegiances to make sure they are still aligned with your values. The Full Moon may clarify issues surrounding any partnerships where one of you may be excessively compromising. A good relationship has to be built on equal ground or else it may be time to adjust your stance.
