MARCH 2014 FORECASTS
Aries – After a crazy February, you may start out March feeling as if you need to chill. This is a time to pull back, and to put the focus on your inner life. Meditation, retreats, and therapy may help soothe your soul. Mars is also now retrograde in your 7th house, and this may be causing you to reflect in your relationships. Who do you want in your life? Who needs to go? By the end of the month, the Sun moves into your sign, giving you a huge energy boost and a bit shot of personal power. Shine brightly and own your power, playa.
Taurus – Your social circle may be feeling a bit wider this month, dear Taurus. With the Sun gracing your 11th house at the beginning of March, you may be receiving invites and support from your besties. If you’ve been neglecting your buddies, this is a good month to reboot those friendships with a little together time. Pay attention to your work life as Mars is now retrograde in your 6th house. Power plays and passive aggressive energy with coworkers could be creating a cauldron of nasty relationships. If you find yourself in the middle of some work drama, adapt a neutral mindset and get the heck out of the way.
Gemini – The Sun is riding high in your 10th house of career, dear Gemini, so it’s time for you to step into that spotlight and claim it as your own. You may be receiving accolades and all sorts of positive attention. Don’t be shy – accept your awards and know that you’ve more than earned it. Your love life is going to be challenging for the next two months. With Mars retrograde in your 5th house, this is not a time to play games. Be direct if you want to get your needs met. Be assertive and break out the vino = pleasure guaranteed. If you are parent, you’ll also need to practice being straightforward with the younger set. If you can’t set boundaries, don’t be upset when they act like barbarians.
Cancer – Mars is retrograde in your 4th house, dear Cancer. What does this mean? First of all, you may find yourself in the middle of some family drama. There may be situations coming up where you have to play the delicate diplomat. Can you play fair, even when others are not? Loved ones may test your boundaries but you hold the keys to resolving the issues. Just remember to be as tactful as possible. This is a good month to work on home improvements, decorating or anything involving your living quarters. Spruce it up and bring order and beauty to your domicile, especially if you’ve been neglecting it in favor of that brutal work load you’re always chatting about.
Leo - March is the signal that spring is beginning to sprout and you know what that means, dear Leo? It’s time for you to begin thinking about romance again. Although Mars is retrograde in your 3rd house, don’t fret. Instead, get some radical clarity on what you want and then begin taking actions to manifest more love in your life. Venus will be sitting nicely in your 7th house of partnerships, indicating that you are in the perfect position to get more lovin’ if you desire. If you are single, be like a bee, buzzing from event to event, delighting everyone with your grace and charm. You may just catch a honey. Partnered? Why not make plans to treat your sweetie to some decadent nights on the town? Be social, be fun and above all, don’t sit home and complain that you are alone. (PS you don’t have to be solo, yo.)
Virgo – With Mars retrograde in your 2nd house of finances, it’s time to curb the impulse spending and get down with some serious budgeting, dear Virgo. If you have not balanced your checkbook in eons, this is the perfect month to get on top of it. Taxes, bills, all that jazz – be responsible and let the other playas take the risks. If you need risk in your life, put that energy into the love department instead of your money. You’ve got a little extra mojo at the beginning of the month and that could lead to some steamy results. Play it cool with your dollah bills and hot with your hottie. It’s life balance, right?
Libra - Mars is now retrograde in your sign, dear Libra. It’s time to go all internal for a bit as you sort out your self image. Have you been sacrificing yourself to please others? Are you putting other people’s needs before your own? Has your confidence taken a hit? Whatever the case may be, the next few months are good for working on your courage. You are in a cocoon and it’s time to incubate the new you. In a few months, you will emerge as a beautiful butterfly. Get deep and make the next few weeks a mini retreat. At work, you will be getting some good mojo. An opportunity to shine is kicking you into the spotlight. You may feel nervous but know this: it’s a taste of the good to come.
Scorpio - You may be spending more time alone this month, dear Scorpio. After last month’s testy Mercury retrograde, you need a break from people. Mars is sitting in your 12th house, making it a perfect time to withdraw and reflect. Meditation and spiritual practices may prove to be balm for your soul. You’re getting in touch with your inner self and working through some old crud. Think of this as a period where you are choosing to release the things that no longer serve a purpose in your life. Any sort of healing work, whether emotional or physical, is favored now. Your creativity will be soaring as this quiet journey inward may spark some amazing insights. Write, journal, paint, play,
Sagittarius – You’ve been flitting about like a busy little bee and dealing with a few wasp nests lately, dear Sagittarius. Last month may have tested your temper and this month promises to test your ability to deal with groups. With Mars retrograde in the 11th, group activities and social events may start wearing on your last nerve. Needy people or ill planned events may make you want to crawl under a bridge and hide. You’re revamping your social circle and the aggravation is the Universe’s way of helping you to get clear on where you want to hang, what social things are really right for you, and what friends are no longer welcome past your velvet rope. In other news, you might be ready to change your home through a move or some serious decorating. Once that dust settles, the focus shifts towards romance. Something big may be brewing in that department soon.
Capricorn – You’ve got all the charm in the world, dear Capricorn, and this month it will do wonders for your ability to network, even if you are swimming with passive aggressive sharks. Mars is retrograde in your 10th house so be careful of backstabbing colleagues and trash talking competition. Because it’s in Libra, you’ll want to ooze out the charisma instead of the aggro. Kill ‘em with kindness and class – and then laugh out the door as you head out for a night on the dance floor, where you’ll rule it like the disco king or queen that you are. All eyes are on you – for good and for ill. Expect lots of admirers and haters, but keep it real and go on with your bad self.
Aquarius -You’re making plenty of strides in your career but some of that progress is on the down low, dear Aquarius. You may be operating in top secret mode all month long. Know this: power often comes for those who walk quietly and walk last. Travel could be a hot mess this month. With Mars retrograde in your 9th, plan extra time to get where you need and don’t get all thuggish with traffic or travel agents. Keep your legendary cool in check and stay focused on reaching your destination. Late in the month, Venus moves into your 1st house. If you’ve been looking to update your wardrobe or get a makeover, do it then. Money is plentiful in March, so treat yo self.
Pisces – This is your month, dear Pisces! After a few weeks of Mercury retrograde madness that wreaked havoc on your inner peace, things are moving forward. With the Sun in your sign, you are about to get some major star power. It’s heat, babe, and no one will be hotter and more in demand than you. If you are looking for a new job or a promotion, you’ve got all the bravado to wow the boardroom every time. That same energy will carry over into the bedroom. But with Mars retrograde in your 8th, you need to be clear about what turns you on. Your partner may not be a mind reader – be direct and you’ll be having more of the results you desire.
