While there are big changes afoot, the end result will not only work in your favour but lead to a better work/life balance, though with a win/win on both sides of life’s fence. There is no doubt that Jupiter’s quest for professional growth and expansion before leaving your career sector on 17th May is in full swing, even before the Sun’s return on 21st March. This is the point in each year when the Sun will always return to your career sector, though as a result will end its month long visit to an adventurous part of your chart. Yet even though the Sun will add to the professional momentum already underway by then, you won’t have to sacrifice anything as result. This is thanks to an event on 8th March, which will have positive implications all round. This is when Saturn will leave your financial sector, ending a three year financial boot camp but in the process leaving you with a strong foundation when Pluto returns on 24th March to begin a four decade long journey that will build on from the foundations already created. It is then that Saturn will return to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, where he will not only stay for the next three years but will work with dreamy Neptune to turn dreams into reality before they both leave in 2025. This won’t take away from the professional momentum building but it will allow for the right balance while taking the financial monkey off your back. Meanwhile, the month will begin with Venus and Jupiter aligned in your career sector until 2nd March, creating some serious momentum from the start. Mercury’s return on 19th March, the Sun’s on 21st March and the Moon just a day later as a New Moon will keep the professional momentum going. However, the one event that is set to touch every aspect of your life is Mars’ return to Cancer on 25th March. Seven months after returning for what is normally the six week wind down of your old Mars cycle, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos will finally arrive and from the start will be ready to make up for lost time. A friendly aspect to Saturn shortly after returning could see this come in the form of a passion for adventure and a hunger for life’s richer experiences.
Support from and for the South Node in your romantic sector will continue, though in a more indirect way and thanks to being in harmony with the Sun and other planets as they pass through an adventurous part of your chart. This is something that Venus started last month, with the spirit of romance and adventure having already received a boost. There is enough ongoing planetary activity on the adventurous front to keep that partnership going. However, this will get a boost when the Moon moves through your romantic sector from 11th March to 13th March. As always, the Moon will align with the South Node but also form a friendly aspect to any planets in an adventurous part of your chart as it moves through and that is what makes the timing auspicious. A friendly aspect to the Sun and Mercury at this time of year is a given, but the Moon returns three days after Saturn begins his nearly three year visit to an adventurous part of your chart on 8th March, cementing the spirit of romance and adventure into place. While this is something that will continue, coming to an end or at least for now is Pluto’s nearly 15 year transit through your relationship sector. Pluto, the planet of change and revolution returned in 2008 to revolutionise your relationships, making it hard to settle for the status quo as he worked to change the things that weren’t working or just your perceptions. Year after year the faster planets have come and gone but Pluto has stayed on, but by 24th March he will be gone, leaving your relationship sector empty for the first time since 2008. The journey will continue and Pluto will retrograde back in later in the year, but for what will be a chance for a recap rather than reaching for the future as he is now. The Moon’s return to your relationship sector from 16th March to 18th March will be one last chance to become emotionally engaged and aware before Pluto leaves.
While there is still no planetary activity in your income sector and there won’t be until Mars returns in May, that is considerably sooner than when the Sun returns in the latter part of July each year. In addition, with Venus, the planet of money returning in June to begin her longest visit to your income sector in our lifetime 2023 is destined to become a lucrative year and especially between May and September. While the money gods still have all their focus on the other side of the financial fence, it is the professional gods that are offering a chance to gain the professional momentum that you can benefit from when things start to move on the income front. Helping to spearhead this is Venus, who begins the month aligned with Jupiter in your career sector. It has been over a decade since the planets of money and luck were last aligned in your career sector, but they are just part of a team of planets that have brought you to a pivotal point in this professional year. When the Moon moves through your income sector from 4th March to 6th March and then when it returns again on 31st March it will sharpen your nose for money, act as a trigger but also form a friendly aspect to the planets in your career sector, continuing that link. Meanwhile, while the money gods have all their attention on the other side of the financial fence, where the focus is on your financial situation and money matters, this is a month of three parts. The first part runs until 8th March, when Saturn’s nearly three year financial boot camp will finally run its course. Mercury will catch up with Saturn on 2nd March and will remain aligned until leaving on 3rd March, bringing together a smart head for money and the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. Saturn’s departure will end all planetary activity on the financial front for the first time since 2020, creating a firebreak that allows you and the money gods to take a break. The Moon will move through during this period, with a chance to check in from 18th march to 20th March. This will ensure your financial instincts and imagination are fuelled when you move into the third stage when Pluto, the planet of change and revolution returns to your financial sector for the first time in our lifetime.
