This month presents to you another opportunity for self-reflection, Libra, and for attempting to assess how far you have come along your desired developmental track. It is not ever easy to do the right thing; the eventual rewards, however, are great, when you can look back satisfied from a future standpoint. Mercury continues in its retrograde motion through your sixth solar sector, termed “discipleship to your Higher Self.” You have been rethinking your commitment to your life mission of how to be of true value to the larger community. This is fundamentally idealistic; in moving the needle in a positive direction on where the society needs to go, you are moving it also on yourself. By the time of the powerful Aries New Moon of March 24th, partnering with important others in your life is very much on your mind, along with significant transformation in your relationship dynamic. The metamorphosis is also in yourself, as you strive to forge ahead with the spiritual evolution that the universe has in store for you.

The beginning of March carries pressures and responsibilities as your ruler Venus, currently in Aries, comes into a challenging square with Saturn in Capricorn. A process that is well underway in your partnerships continues to bring up sobering conversations and necessary adjustments. You could feel burdened by your domestic realities but if the difficult lessons there are also being integrated, you could feel more prepared to face these challenges.
Venus enters her home sign of Taurus on March 4th, highlighting partnership connection, and shifting conversations to shared assets, legal matters, and loyalty. Venus in Taurus is sensual and enduring in her affections. However with change-agent Uranus currently transiting in Taurus even the most stable structures are undergoing some form of revolution. This is not inherently bad. Uranus in Taurus for the next seven years will support freeing yourself from crystallized habits. Relational patterns that have become too rigid in your life are ripped open for change. You could feel confused or unsure about the current state of your partnerships. Pay attention to the themes arising around March 7th and 8th when Venus conjoins Uranus. There could be a surprising factor to contend with but the destabilizing elements are pushing you towards greater relational awareness.
The Full Moon on March 9th takes place in the sign of Virgo, illuminating your unconscious, and your hidden narratives. Things that have been swept under the carpet could come back to haunt you. The Full Moon shines her light in the private corners of your psyche, highlighting the undermining dialogues that keeps you from feeling deserving. You could become vividly aware of the mental loops that are detrimental to your well being. The Sun conjoins Neptune in Pisces at the time of the Full Moon. This aspect could highlight the temptation to run away, into a world of fantasy. You could somewhat feel polarized between lucidity and the desire to escape. However, the Full Moon in Virgo carries a brightening incentive to get to the core of your narratives. Mercury stations direct in Aquarius on the same day starting to bring a process of clarification to ensue.
From March 10th to March 19th with the Pisces Sun in sextile with Capricorn planets, your routine becomes a major focus as you try to find more efficient ways to deal with your obligations. Logistical issues and time management could become a concern. Stay open to the possibility of innovative solutions surfacing mid-month as you struggle to reconcile your domestic life with your career goals.
The Sun enters the sign of Aries on March 19th, signalling the first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun transiting in Aries for the next month highlights the people in your life, and your important relationships. It can be a time of compromise when you must adjust to the demands made on you. It can also indicate a time when you are willing to increase your attention to partnerships as they come into focus in the next few weeks. Mars meeting Jupiter in Capricorn on March 19th and 20th is the signal to meet your current dilemmas courageously. This is a potent aspect that calls for positively envisioning your future. However there could also be a tendency to be impatient and to make rash decisions. Decisive actions must be balanced with reflection and bold moves with proper planning.
Mid-month, as you move deeper into your relational dynamics you will be prompted to revisit themes that surfaced at the beginning of February. Resolution is within reach especially when you think outside of the box. Venus in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces on March 22nd could bring up powerful romantic feelings. One thing is certain; the second week of March won’t leave you indifferent. You might oscillate between confidence and longing while the structures of your life shifts to meet its future.
The New Moon in Aries on March 24th conjoins Chiron, known as ‘’the Wounded Healer’’. Once again, there is a powerful incentive to get to the root of a difficult situation or past hurt, that has left you or a partner feeling insecure. Issues that have been festering are ready to be composted as new realities arise. The New Moon sends a powerful reset in the realm of your relationships that could be both painful and healing simultaneously.
The last week of March brings a serious tone, and calls for maturity in your exchanges. Your ruler Venus, remaining in the sensual sign of Taurus, comes into a supportive trine with Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. You must contend with the reality of your situation. Try to find the silver lining in the present moment, and focus on the work you have in front of you.
