march 20 - april 19
Venus is widely known as the planet of love. It has a secondary significance that is less discussed: but that pertains almost equally to those material benefits, prosperity and wealth, with which our close celestial companion is customarily linked. Some of the reasoning behind this less popular association may become apparent, once a heliocentric perspective supplants our geocentric view of the Solar System and the Earth, assumes some of the more prosaic functions currently assigned to its predecessor. Anyway, let romance take the lead until March 5. Thereafter, business issues are prominent, as Venus enters Taurus…

The zodiac constellations all belong to one of three qualities, technically called the triplicities: with each one comprising four members. You belong to the fixed triplicity and also to the element of earth, making for a tough nut to crack once you have made up your mind. You could call this great resolve, extreme tenacity, perseverance or willpower: especially when you have triumphed over seemingly insuperable odds. Yet some circumstances prove so rigid, immutable and intransigent: even you are better seeking scope for a middle ground: in the interests of the best deal you can muster, before March draws to a close.

For wise followers of the stars, the course of every month doesn’t always pan out exactly as we’d thought. Experience has shown that each planet and constellation can have a similar but contrasting outcome, even when a superficial glance reveals a congruent combination and dynamic. Some folk will react more explosively than others, especially when they have been conditioned to assume the utmost extremes of self-control from childhood. Ultimately a catastrophic response ensues, when with more guided insight, the toughest memories could have resurfaced more slowly, alleviating rather than amplifying these anxieties…

june 21 - july 22
During March, a number of matters concerning those you are the closest to, draw towards an inevitable denouement. Most directly involved are your existing companions, employers, colleagues; partners on a professional, domestic or romantic level; even your competitors, adversaries and enemies could play a significant part. And this assumes the greatest showdown hasn’t already happened, when Mars hit Capricorn in the middle of February. Alignments like this are likely to change your outlook forever: as one group of friends and acquaintances finally bids farewell, others surprise you with their sense and maturity.

july 23 - august 22
The stars suggest throughout March, you pay more attention to your health and well-being. Many people take a statement like this in a pejorative fashion, yet it doesn’t necessarily apply to any negative fallout. Saturn leaves your house of health on March 23, so it is opportune putting what you have learned about nutrition and exercise into a practical regimen. Mars and Jupiter jointly suggest, a fitness campaign that suits your current level, rather than jumping right in with the expectations a professional athlete, which will prove disastrous. Pluto suggests not ignoring minor health issues, so they don’t grow in to anything larger.

august 23 - september 22
The bulk of astrology’s primary auguries are arranged over the western side of your horoscope, the side where the majority of planets set and ultimately, vanish from view. This emphasises two different sorts of people and the connection they often share with you. Though all kinds of associations are pinpointed, those of a romantic nature are especially highlighted, along with the creative consequences of such unions, including children without a doubt. So while you may work closely together on a fascinating and absorbing project, it is the finer developments of an emotional nature, actually dominating your thoughts…

september 23 - october 22
Over the past few years, you’ve learned the answers to a number of questions, that might not have reached the surface of your consciousness beforehand. What makes you worthwhile as an individual for instance; or how is this affirmed by the reactions of others and by your own sense of self-worth, for another. There is a saying that to look at a person’s friends, is the best way of knowing who they are. But what if the eventualities you have witnessed, fly so much in the face of all your previous misconceptions? You either hold fast to these incorrect assumptions, or slowly and tentatively accept the need for change…

Saturn leaves Capricorn for Aquarius on March 22, initially until July. Early March also sees a retrograde Mercury coming back to the same region of your horoscope, connected with your family and domestic circumstances on an outer level and to your more intimate domestic needs inside. These are likely to be rather well-hidden even from you, but like your cupboard under the stairs, what you imagine isn't quite so bad once you drag it in to the daylight. Nobody says you have to undertake this effort in public. Some of what you discover might be interesting and enlightening: it could have value for someone else, even you…

november 22 - december 21
If you can imagine a birth chart with your sign rising, during March the vast majority of planets congregate below the horizon of this celestial sphere. The Moon is one exception since it moves so much faster than everything else, making the first half of March and also its final days, best for any activity that requires external input. Money and your finances are likely to remain a huge concern: if you are willing to pull in your horns just a little, it is an opportune moment for the deployment of a new, more conservative plan. But if you’re counting on luck and on a get-rich scheme, the result remains similar, only far less palatable…

“The quantity of mercy is not strange. It droppeth like the dental pain from Devon, upon your wisdom teeth.” Something like that anyway; was penned by the Bard of Avon, over four hundred years ago. And its sentiments are still very pertinent today. You see, when you are content and comfortable, while everything is going your way, it is hard to remember the struggles of getting there, especially if you’re lacking material resources, or freedom of choice and movement. It is easy to cast aspersions on those whose efforts aren’t so fruitful or who lack such opportunities. Be kinder during March: it is the new classy.

january 20 - february 18
Perhaps to the casual observer, it seems everything has stalled. Onlookers searching for clues about your motivations and intentions are met with a wall of silence, at least temporarily. Partly this is because of what you’ve been through and the many new possibilities that seem certain to characterise your future. It has neither been a pleasant nor a welcome episode, although given the fullness of time you may come to realise the disadvantages are not so great as at first you feared. A retrograde Mercury returns to your sign on March 4, turning direct on March 10. Between then and March 16 you’ll glimpse, your initial results.

february 19 - march 19
A gathering of planets in a sector of the sky that governs your hopes and aspirations, together with where other people are involved in how matters turn out, proves a source of consternation. You’d like to be amenable but even so, you can’t help believe that certain decisions require review or at least some renegotiation. As a generally amenable character you are impressed by strong personalities who have big ideas, firm principles and a solid notion of their deployment. In the beginning you were happy to go along for the ride, but when that still small voice inside of you feels stifled and neglected, something has to give.
