With all the planets in direct motion and Mars finally clearing the 25th degree of Gemini on March 16 (the degree it retrograded on at the end of October in 2022) we can continue forward with our lives with more ease and certainty of direction by the end of the month.
There’s a possibility of a bit of recklessness in our desire to just get on with it, so just be aware of that impulse for rash behaviors. Mars’ energy wants to fulfill its desires as quickly as possible and sometimes that is not the wisest choice.
Mars is currently out of bounds; it has been since October 22, 2022 and will be until May 4, 2023. This indicates that the motion of Mars is beyond the normal north or south zone of declination at the celestial equator. It can indicate erratic or extreme actions if Mars is aspecting a planet or angle in anyone’s chart.
Mercury is moving along in Pisces but will be combust with the Sun from March 15 through March 26 while in Aries. Expect lots of information to come in at that time but not a lot of clarity as to what to do with it or how it will work out until the end of the month. Be patient, it will unfold.
Venus is lovely to look at in the western sky, particularly around the 1st of the month when she will be in a very close conjunction with Jupiter at the 12th degree of Aries. They have been moving closer together quite visibly in the sky over the last two weeks so don’t miss the spectacle of their union on or before Wednesday.
The asteroid, Chiron, though not visible to the naked eye, is at 13 degrees of Aries so there is the vibration of the wounded healer also present which can add an additional resonance for personal healing at this time, particularly around love and relationships.
Saturn moves into the sign of Pisces on March 7 and will be transiting this sign for approximately the next two and a half years. Pisces is a feminine, mutable water sign and Saturn is not all that comfortable in that domain as its masculine structured nature wants to contract or solidify any situation. Therefore, it doesn’t operate well in a changeable watery environment as the two are nothing alike. So, certain situations may feel like you are trying to herd cats during Saturn’s time in Pisces. In any event, do your best to maintain some discipline and structure in which ever house Saturn is transiting in your chart.
Uranus clears the 15th degree of Taurus and ends the month at 16 degrees 44’ of Taurus and in a conjunction with Venus. This is a magnetic and exciting energy that can bring in sudden attractions or changes in relationships and finances and for women in general.
Neptune moves forward from 24 degrees 34’ to 25 degrees 42’ in Pisces, continuing to bring attention to water matters across the globe. When Saturn gets to a conjunction with Neptune in May of 2025 there will likely be some creative solutions to the water crisis coming into reality. Make it so, Saturn!
Pluto moves into the sign of Aquarius on March 23 for about 2 months before its retrograde back into Capricorn in the middle of June. That is not really enough time in Aquarius to give us much of a clue about how it will operate in that air sign but it may give a bit of relief from the relentless pressures of Capricorn…maybe, we shall see. Both Capricorn and Aquarius are ruled by Saturn so there’s that particular sticky wicket to consider.
Read your Sun sign and Rising sign for best results:
Aries — March 21-April 19: Venus and Jupiter grace your sign right now so I hope you are finding time to just enjoy life and what it offers in terms of grace, beauty and pleasure. Just don’t overdo it with this sensual pairing! Jupiter will offer opportunities to advance or expand through the middle of May so pay attention to what is possible and be optimistic that it will work out to your advantage. Your stellar days are the new Moon the PM hours of the 21st, the 22nd and the AM hours of the 23rd.
Taurus — April 20-May 20: This month could give you a glimpse into some upcoming changes in your career and professional life as Pluto briefly enters your 10th house and Saturn enters your 11th house this month. Pluto is all about transformation but it can come at a cost if you don’t willingly participate in doing things the correct way. No underhanded moves are permitted under a Pluto transit without some kind of repercussion and Saturn in the 11th wants proper compensation and structure as well. If it’s quid pro quo, just say no. Venus enters your sign on the 17th so you will have more obvious pleasure at the end of the month. Best days to enjoy them are the PM hours of the 23rd, the 24th and the 25th.
Gemini — May 21-June 21: Things should be going rather smoothly for you this month as Mars in your sign in the first house gets more attention as he is highly visible and strong there. You may get more responsibility thrown at you after the first week as your visibility gets you noticed for the action you create. Just keep going now as the momentum is on your side. Pay close attention to details when Mercury is in combust with the Sun between the 15th and 26th so you know what is really going on, if that’s even possible. The vibes of the 26th and 27th are your stellar days.
Cancer — June 22-July 23: With Venus, Jupiter and Chiron in your 10th house of career and professional life there may be some excess of some sort going on that makes it hard for you to keep up. Chiron can indicate that your desire to take care of everyone and everything can reveal a weakness you need to be aware of. Mars transiting in your hidden 12th house until March 25th can make you a bit reclusive but at the end of the month you can emerge refreshed and ready to commit to new horizons. Saturn in Pisces will support your ambitions if you add the necessary structure to your life to support you on that path. Your best days are the 1st, 2nd, 28th, 29th, and AM hours of the 30th.
Leo — July 24-August 23: The planets will all be elevated above the horizon for you after Pluto goes into Aquarius on the 23rd so you have lots of energy for the public and outer world, at least until the middle of June. Go ahead and dip your toe in the waters of travel, investments, inner psychological work and connections with the world and society in general. It will feel good to feel appreciated by people other than your family through the spring and summer as that is when this vibe is most active for you. The 3rd, 4th, 5th and 31st are days where you can make things happen.
Virgo — August 24-September 22: The vibes this month are still around money, contracts, investments and how you engage your professional persona with your clients. It’s a great time to work on telling it like it is with people but in a nice way. If you need coaching on this or a new script, hire a professional to help you work that script out. While Mercury is combust the Sun between the 15th and 26th, watch that your words are not misunderstood, repeat them back to people for clarity. The vibe is strong for you on the 6th and the full Moon day on the 7th so give yourself a bit of a break then and enjoy the life you’ve created.
Libra — September 23-October 22: With the Venus, Jupiter and Chiron conjunction in your 7th house of partnership, you may feel that your partner is too demanding or needy for your time and attention right now. It’s always a balancing act for Libras as they enjoy relationship but they also like to have some not so subtle control of their partners as Libra is a masculine cardinal sign, after all. There is a need for some healing around this subject with Chiron so prominently placed with those 2 planets now. Do something for your partner that will be seen and appreciated by them to as a sign of your affection. Lavish some praise on them as it will go a long way. Now is the time for this loving action, as this aspect fades over the next two weeks. Your best days are the 8th, 9th and 10th.
Scorpio — October 23-November 22: There’s a bit of a tug of war for you internally now with your ruling planet, Mars, in a square aspect to the Sun and then to Neptune by the end of the month. This has the effect of thwarting your efforts to make gains or just having some confusion about life direction now. It could also be that because Pluto will be hanging around your 4th house cusp for the next 2 years there is a need for you to switch gears and devote some time to your home, mother, ancestors, your psychological foundations or the needs of your immediate family rather than manifesting big gains in the outside world. It is also a house of endings so there will be big changes affecting you with this shift of Pluto’s focus to matters of this house. Doing the practical matters right now. The vibes of the 11th and 12th are your stellar days this month.
Sagittarius — November 23-December 20: With the Venus and Jupiter conjunction happening in your 5th house of creativity and fun, you should take advantage of all social invitations and opportunities to expand your interests. In contrast to this pleasant vibration Saturn will be moving into your 4th house of home, mother, ancestors, your psychological foundations and endings. Saturn will be here for approximately two and a half years and it can be called your point of maximum obscurity in the outside world as you are responsible for the matters of this house. Yes, it is kind of a heavy house but Saturn is only here once every 29 years. Step up to the plate and do what needs to be done with your characteristic optimism and sense of humor. Your best days are the 13th and 14th.
Capricorn — December 21-January 20: With Saturn, your ruling planet, moving into the sign of Pisces this month you can expect a change into a more passive energy than the “my rules matter” vibe over the last 5 years when Saturn passed through the two signs it rules. Welcome to the mystical moist world of Pisces where time is malleable and structures are a lot more squishy than suits your vibration. You’ll need to get into the “go with the flow” mode that you will struggle to control but cannot, well, maybe you can a little. Because that’s how Pisces is. So, learn to back off and work on controlling your reactions instead of controlling the situations and people around you. Nobody said it would be easy but if you really ponder Pisces, this mode of operation is a lot easier than a being in charge one. Your stellar days are the 15th and 16th so host a party or small gathering to take advantage of those good vibes. Your good days are the 15th and 16th.
Aquarius — January 21-February 19: Saturn will be leaving your sign on the 7th and hanging out in Pisces for the next two and a half months. You get some relief from various pressures or ailments from the last 5 years. Though Saturn will be in your 2nd house for that period of time and you may have to budget your money more carefully, you can feel some relief if you’ve taken good care of yourself the past couple of years. That being said Venus and Jupiter are transiting your 3rd house so get out and about in your neighborhood or plan some visits with your siblings or close friends. The vibes will be optimistic and friendly this first week of March and who can’t use a dose of that? Great days for such an occasion are the 17th, 18th and AM hours of the 19th.
Pisces — February 20-March 20: It’s almost here! Saturn will be entering your sign on the 7th and be there for almost two and a half years. Saturn likes discipline, punctuality, responsibility and caution. Not exactly the things Pisceans are fond of. But now you know that lessons are coming and you can prepare yourself for new Sheriff in town. It takes about 3 weeks to make a new habit so start now and you’ll be ahead of the game. Also, this month the Venus Jupiter conjunction takes place in your 2nd house of money and assets so you may want to prepare yourself for some additional expenses or pleasure purchases coming up. The flip side of this abundance is that with Venus and Jupiter in your 2nd house, you can usually attract more money to you, so it’s kind of a win/win situation. Just don’t overdo it as Saturn will make you pay if you are too self-indulgent. Lovely days to take a break and relax are the PM hours of the 19th, the 20th and the AM hours of the 21st, which is a new Moon day!
