The stars seem to have pulled off the impossible this month, with one of your biggest months for job growth and expansion and the busiest so far unlikely to see life become all work and no play. With the Sun always spending the first three weeks of March in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart but the month not only starting with Venus already in your work sector but aligned with Jupiter until 2nd March, makes a balance between work and play less a choice and more a reality or a foregone conclusion. Venus has returned ahead of the Sun, who on 21st March will always turn the solar spotlight onto your work situation and job matters, but it is her departure on 17th March that has extra significance. This is the same day that Jupiter will move into the final two months of his mission to make this your biggest year for job growth and expansion in over a decade. Jupiter will leave on 17th May, exactly two months later but even then, as she returns to your relationship sector Venus will be preparing for his return. Mercury will leave a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and return to your work sector on 19th March and the Sun two days later, but even a New Moon there on 22nd March won’t tilt the balance too far towards the busy side of life’s fence. That is because Saturn will not only return to a playful and creative part of your chart on 8th March but will spend the next three years here. Another factor that will help you maintain the right balance between work and play is Mars, who after seven months in your financial sector will leave and make his belated return to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on 25th March. A friendly aspect to Saturn just days later will help to forge their new partnership. This will see Saturn end a three year visit to your home and family sector and Mars his longest visit to your financial sector in eight decades, but neither will be empty for long. Pluto’s return to your home and family sector on 24th March is a chance to build on from the foundations Saturn has created while Venus, the planet of money will return to your financial sector early next month to do the same on the financial front.
There is something special developing on the romantic and relationship fronts this month and in both cases in a way that is not the norm. The dark horse this month or the less obvious in terms of how significant this is set to become is on the relationship front. The month begins with the North Node and Uranus still on their own in your relationship sector, as is normally the case at this time of year, but where they are quietly working to keep things real, authentic and on track. As the Sun doesn’t return to your relationship sector until the latter part of April each year, there should be little change. However, that will change and that includes even before Venus, the planet of love makes an early return to your relationship sector on 17th March, over two months earlier than last year. While this is an ordinary annual visit, Venus returns exactly two months to the day before Jupiter will return to begin your most important year for relationship growth and expansion in over a decade and she is just one part of the advance party. Five days before Venus returns the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships will return for her first visit to your relationship sector in four years, with a chance to work with Venus to prepare for what is to come. This also makes the Moon’s visit from 24th March to 26th March a valuable chance to check in and become more emotionally engaged. You won’t have to wait that long for major changes on the romantic front. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of March in your romantic sector, with the solar spotlight always on matters of the heart and all things romantic at this time each year, while Mercury will return on 3rd March to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. With Venus been and gone your romantic desires and expectations have already been banked, but the real change comes when Saturn returns on 8th March, for the first time in three decades. Saturn will spend the next three years in your romantic sector with dreamy Neptune, working together to turn dreams into reality, though not without putting in the hard work. The Moon’s visit from 20th March to 22nd March will give you your first feel for this.
While there is still no planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence and in his final days in your financial sector Mars is putting even more focus on your financial situation and money matters, there could still be a lucrative month. This is all thanks to Venus, who not only begins the month in your work sector but is aligned with Jupiter until 2nd March. This is the first time that the planets of money and luck have met up in your work sector in over a decade, something that is giving Venus’ mission to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction a massive boost. In the absence of any planetary activity in your income sector, Venus is working to make up for that and especially when the Moon moves through your income sector from 13th March to 16th March. This will ensure your nose for money is sharp during Venus’ final days and as the Moon forms a friendly aspect to the five planets in your work sector, as well as sharpening your nose for money this can act as a trigger on the income and job fronts. As the planet of money, Venus will be working to make these some of the most potentially lucrative days of the month, even though this is a month that is more about taking your financial power back and not just on the income front. It was in August that Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos returned for what is usually a six week visit to your financial sector. Instead, a retrograde phase has not only kept him here but by the time he leaves on 25th March this will have been his longest visit in eight decades. Mars still has a lot of fight left in him and as he continues to fuel your financial passions and fighting spirit he is giving you the drive, determination and experience needed to take your financial power back. While the Moon will leave your financial sector on 1st March, this last visit before Mars leaves will be a chance to begin the month with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled from the start and a better sense of where to channel a call for action. By the time the Moon returns from 26th March to 28th March Mars will have just left, with a chance to tie up loose ends.
