A mix of Fire and Water elements this month can create some steamy (and volatile!) relationship connections. It’s a highly imaginative combination that can inspire your creativity as well. Ethereal Pisces influences bring out the dreamer in you — and perhaps a craving for a soulmate. Focusing on your spiritual life brings satisfaction, too. Later in the month, a mix of Aries and Leo influences encourages a more physical outlet for your energy.
During the first week of March, a whopping five placements in Pisces, including the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Uranus, can inspire an urge to develop your spiritual life through meditation, prayer, and dream analysis — that is, any activity that awakens your ‘higher self,’ the part of you connected to Source. This emphasis on Pisces, however, may also cause some inner confusion if you’re unclear about your direction. Being mindful of your alcohol consumption and taking some quiet time each day to listen to your inner voice will increase your clarity.
Romance turns fiery from March 7-30, as Venus in Aries creates a craving for excitement in relationships. New activities, friends, and environments will inspire/attract romance. What’s more, Mercury energizes flirting and other feisty communications when it transits into Aries on the 17th (through April 1).
Throughout the month, Mars in Leo adds to the fire by inspiring some lusty interactions. Leo, however, isn’t just about sex — it can also heighten your creativity and give you the courage to step out of your comfort zone and expand your activities. It’s time to express your inner fire!
Finally, Venus in Taurus from March 31-April 23 deepens the desire for security and sensual satisfaction. It also favors activities involving art, beauty, and nature.
Planets in Motion
After hindering the launch of new endeavors since last December, retrograde Mars turning direct on the 10th will prompt a round of fresh projects. New relationships will also get a boost.
Saturn continues its retrograde travels (through May 29), which encourages a review (and perhaps an adjustment) of your commitments and long-term goals.
A compelling conjunction in Pisces on the 15th that involves the New Moon, Mercury, and Uranus can inspire a sudden change of direction, startling insight, spiritual awakening, or innovative idea. Flirting will be off the charts, too, especially if inspired by a person or situation that’s out of the ordinary. Humanitarian activities will be energized as well.
The Full Moon in Libra on the 29th connects with Pluto, which can cause extreme emotional interactions that challenge your sense of fair play. Strive to see the bigger picture of what’s going on, so you aren’t boxed in by a limiting mindset. On the positive side, it can prompt a breakthrough that frees you from a limiting emotional pattern.
