As you move into the new month Venus is in her final days of an epic 4 month visit to your career sector that began in early November and after turning direct early last month, before leaving on the 6th March she's in the final days of defining your professional desires and expectations and putting your professional year on the track that it will continue on. While Pluto will stay on to keep your professional game in motion and the momentum going, much of what you will eventually accomplish during the coming year will be defined in the early days of the month. While you will have the rest of the year to walk the talk, bring things home and make things happen, it's now that you're defining what's possible and what you're aiming and striving for. Yet Venus' departure will finally see a professional push that began as far back as October 2013 finally run its course, giving you a chance to do something you probably didn't get much of a chance to do over the New Year, which is to take your professional hat off. This is a time of year when the social forces in play during February have run their course, with the wind down of your current solar year already underway by this time of year. Yet when Venus finally returns to a social and serendipitous part of your chart on the 6th March she'll be delighted to find Mercury still here, despite the fact that he left on the 1st February. It was Mercury's retrograde turn last month that brought him back for a double dip visit and only just turning direct on the 1st March, he's here to ensure that the communication lines are open and you have your head in the game, as Venus returns to trigger the laws of attraction and synchronicity. With Venus not leaving until early next month and Mercury staying on until the 18th March this is going to bring a social flavour to the whole month, even during the more introspective closing weeks of your current solar year. In the meantime, the Sun's return to your sign on the 21st March will open the door to a new solar year and all the new adventures that await.
Very little is what you would expect at this time of year, with March usually a month where there is a lot of focus on social and networking matters in the first 3 weeks of the month, before the annual wind down of your current solar year begins on the 23rd March. While that will still be the case, nothing else about the month is what you would expect, keeping you on your toes and creating some stunning opportunities, with your professional game the clear winner. While you will occasionally see professional matters spill into March, despite the fact that the Sun will always leave your career sector on the 19th February, what you wouldn't normally expect is for things to be just starting to come together, nor the support you have from work forces. Mercury left your career sector on the 1st February so he shouldn't even be here, yet his retrograde turn in early February has not only brought him back for a double dip visit, but it puts him here and you intellectually in the game when Venus returns on the 6th March. This brings you to a point in the year when you are usually at best tying up loose ends, yet this year you're only just getting started. Venus' return will trigger the laws of attraction and with Mercury staying on until the 19th February, the professional desires and expectations she'll trigger will be matched by his intellectual savvy and acumen. Yet when you throw in the mix that you not only still have Mars in your work sector, who after returning on the 8th December 2013 should be long gone, but the second chances his retrograde turn on the 2nd March will open the door to and you have a whole new ball game. In 2013 all the planetary activity in your career sector had ran its course by February and work matters didn't kick in until August, yet here you are in March and you're just hitting your professional stride. With this you'll need to balance the social focus in play all month, but also a need to find time for navel gazing once you begin the month long wind down of your current solar year on the 23rd March.
While March will always be the most professionally focused month of the year for you, with the Sun in your career sector until the 19th February, there are plenty of other forces in play to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play. Yet there is no escaping what a standout professional month this will be, for while the Sun will always put the solar spotlight on your professional game and options at this time every year, it's been 12 years since you had lucky Jupiter in your income sector at the same time. There are two events this month that will give things some real leverage. The first is Jupiter's direct turn in your income sector on the 7th March and the second is Mercury's return to your career sector on the 18th March, returning in time to take over from where the Sun will leave off when he leaves 5 days later, but also returning to something he himself started early last month. For this will be a double dip visit for Mercury, who returned on the 1st February but retrograded back out on the 13th February. With Mercury staying on until 8th April, but Venus returning just days earlier to take over and bring things home, getting your professional year up to speed and on the right track will remain a work in progress until later next month. However, don't think you'll get away with letting life become all work and no play, not with Mars not only firing up your romantic and creative passions but opening the door to second chances from the 2nd March. At the same time, after finally wrapping up her epic visit to your financial sector on the 6th March and leaving you with some clearly defined financial desires and expectations, Venus will join Mercury in an adventurous part of your chart. What is one of your best professional months of the year is also a month where the spirit of adventure and your romantic and creative passions won't let you get away with keeping your professional hat on 24/7. Saturn's retrograde turn in your work sector on the 3rd March will make it a lot easier to pace yourself.
Chances are March has always been one of your favourite months of the year without knowing why. This stems from a sense of adventure that is always in play at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the majority of February in your sector of travel, adventure, learning and discovery, before leaving on the 23rd March, shifting the focus to career matters and getting your professional year off the ground. This year the sense of adventure isn't as strong, for it's a bit of a late bloomer this year, but to compensate it will continue right through to the end of next month, keeping the spirit of adventure, curiosity and discovery alive for much longer. This year a relationship focus that should have run its course in January is still in play, as is a financial focus that continues on even though the Sun left your financial sector on the 19th February. There are due to be a lot of changes and shifts in the early days of the month, making it important to remain on your toes, keeping your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground as the currents shift and turn. Yet of all the shifts in those early days the most urgent is Venus, planet of love's final days in your relationship sector. Until Venus leaves your relationship sector on the 6th March, wrapping up an epic visit that began in November 2013, she's working through your heart to give you a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. This will put your relationships on a course they will continue on all year, making it important to listen to your heart. It's during Venus' final days in your relationship sector that Saturn will turn retrograde in your romantic sector on the 3rd March, opening the door to second chances. With Mars turning retrograde in your home and family sector on the 2nd March, this will open the door to the past and second chances on the home, family and/or property fronts at the same time. Yet while this will see old doors reopen in the early days of the month, old doors will also be closing, with Mercury's direct turn in your financial sector on the 1st March and Jupiter's direct turn in your sign on the 7th March.
The solar spotlight will always fall on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year, with the Sun in your financial sector until the 23rd March, as is the case each year. This is when the Sun shines the solar spotlight on your financial situation, allowing you to see things for what they are and bringing a chance to focus on 'what is' rather than 'what ifs'. You had a chance in the early days of February, before the Sun even got here, to tap into his smart head for money, before Mercury retrograded back out. This gave Mercury a chance to give your relationships a voice and for a double dip visit to focus more on giving the past and unsaid words a voice. This is something that your relationships will continue to benefit from all month, especially with Venus, planet of love finally making a belated return to your relationship sector on the 6th March. Mercury will turn direct on the 1st March and while he'll continue to work to ensure the communication lines are open until he leaves your relationship sector on the 18th March, his focus will shift to moving on. Mercury will leave your relationships in safe hands when he leaves, with Venus staying on to give your relationships a boost that is not usually possible this late into the year. This is when Mercury will shift your mental focus back to your financial game, with his double dip visit to your financial sector bringing a smart head for money and a lot of hindsight into play just as the Sun is wrapping up his annual visit. Mercury won't return until a day after a Full Moon in your income sector, but his smart head for money will enable you to capitalise on what this might trigger. Communication will remain an important theme throughout the month and throughout all aspects of your life.
In a month where the focus is on your relationships, with a New Moon in your relationship sector on the 1st March allowing you to start the way you intend to go on Venus, planet of love still has some unfinished business on the romantic front. Until Venus leaves your romantic sector on the 6th March, she'll be urging you to listen to and follow your heart as she wraps up her longest visit in over 200 years. In a month where work matters are also carrying over from last month, there is a need to make a pact in the early days of the month to make finding a balance between work and play a priority. For while the Sun left your work sector on the 19th February, Mercury's retrograde turn early last month brought him back for a double dip visit, one that won't run its course until the 18th March, putting him here when Venus finally returns on the 6th March. Last year all the planetary activity in your work sector for the year had run its course by the end of February, but this year you have until early April, with a chance to work with both Venus and Mercury to have heart and mind on the same page and both in the game. Yet while Venus will keep the focus on work matters for the rest of the month, Mercury's return and double dip visit to your relationship sector on the 18th March will bring him back in time to make the most of the Sun's final days and for the planet of communication to take over from where he leaves off. There won't be a moment in the month where romantic, work and relationship forces aren't in play to one degree or another, making finding the right balance a priority from the get go. At the same time something is developing on the money front, which while highlighted by the Sun's return to your financial sector on the 23rd March, will see things start to fall into place on both the income and financial fronts, with the doors opening to both second chances and new opportunities.
While February will always be a month where finding a balance between work and play is your biggest challenge, this is not usually something that you will carry with you into March. Last year all the planetary activity in your romantic and creative sector for the year had run its course by the end of February, with the focus shifting to work matters from March onwards. This year, as in all years, with the Sun in your work sector until the 23rd March the solar spotlight is on your work situation and even more so this year with lucky Jupiter turning direct in your career sector on the 7th March and Saturn turning retrograde in your income sector on the 3rd March. Yet if you think you're going to get away with letting life become all work and no play then you haven't counted on Venus, planet of love and your ruling planet. While Mercury left your romantic and creative sector early last month, his retrograde turn just days later has brought him back for a double dip visit, one where as well as working to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page, he's also opening the door to second chances. While Mercury will turn direct on the 1st March, this has slowed him down and as he won't leave until the 18th March he'll still be here when Venus finally returns on the 6th March. Until then Venus will be wrapping up her epic 4 month visit to your home and family sector, her longest in over 200 years and while that's good news for home and family matters, it means she has a lot of making up for lost time to do on the romantic front. You've waited a long time for the most romantically charged weeks of 2014 to begin and when they do on the 6th March they'll remain in play for the rest of the month and into the early days of April. With the focus on work matters remaining in play all month this will bring a call for balance, but it also means that romantic forces that should have run their course last month are still in play as the Sun shifts his focus to your relationships on the 23rd March.
March will always be a month where finding a balance between work and play is a priority, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of March in a playful part of your chart, before returning to your work sector on the 23rd March. After no New Moons last month we have two New Moons this month, one on the very first and the other on the very last day of the month and they mark the progression of the month. The first New Moon on the 1st March falls in your romantic and creative sector, with the Sun shining the spotlight on matters of the heart and all things playful, romantic and creative. Yet with the second New Moon on the 31st March falling in your work sector, the solar focus will end the month on work matters rather than on matters of the heart. Yet this is a month where the lines are going to be blurred, for while the Sun won't throw the solar spotlight on work matters until the 23rd March, this is already underway long before the new month began and if anything you're starting to gain a whole new perspective and understanding of things. At the same time, while the Sun will leave a playful part of your chart on the 23rd March, this will be far from the end of things, with the most playful and romantically charged weeks of the year not hitting their stride until early next month. As well as a call for balance, especially when it comes to a balance between work and play, there is a lot of focus on home and family matters this month, with home where the heart will reside for the majority of the month, which will make it a lot easier to find the right work/life balance. As well as a need to make communication a priority, there is a sense of adventure in the air that will make it hard to sweat the small stuff or create challenges where there are none.
What you do expect in March is for the focus to be on home and family matters, especially in the first 3 weeks of the month and then to shift to a more romantic theme in the final days of the month and while you still get that, there is still a lot of unfinished business in other areas of your chart. For the fourth month in a row you will move into the new month to find Venus in your income sector, something that is far from the norm for a planet that normally spends less than 4 weeks here. Yet due to finally leave on the 6th March, Venus will be making sure that the final days of her longest visit in over 200 years count. As well as triggering the laws of attraction and giving you a clear sense of where the money is, Venus' main influence is a sense of entitlement she is able to foster. This makes it important to move into the new month daring to believe in yourself and in what you're worth, not only financially but across all the currencies in your life. It's on the 6th March that Venus will finally return to your communication sector, 5 days after Mercury turns direct on the 1st March, ending a retrograde phase that saw him return for a double dip visit. Mercury left your communication sector on the 1st February so shouldn't even be here, but he'll stay on until the 18th March to give Venus all the support she needs to ensure the communication lines are open, to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. It is then that Mercury will finally shift his focus back to home and family matters in the Sun's final days, returning to what he began early last month. This is when you're able to get the communication lines open on the home front and start making choices, decisions and plans. In the meantime, while the Sun will shift the solar focus onto matters of the heart from the 23rd March, this is something that will be there to a certain extent all month. This is also an important month for both personal and professional networking and connecting, with the doors even opening to second chances from the 2nd March.
Venus, planet of love returned to your sign in November 2013, for what is usually less than a 4 week mission to give your heart a voice as you define your personal, romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year. Yet as you move into the new month it's been 4 months and she's still here, albeit in her final days and finally wrapping up her longest visit in over 200 years Venus is urging you to wear your heart on your sleeve from the get go. With lucky Jupiter turning direct in your relationship sector on the 7th March and beginning the long run to bring things home, as the tide turns you should have a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. In the meantime, Venus' departure from your sign and return to your income sector on the 6th March will see her put on her planet of money hat, teaming up with Mercury and his smart head for money to attract as many opportunities as possible. Venus is about 3 months late so she'll be ready to start making up for lost time, setting the scene for a lucrative month for income opportunities. With Mars entering the third full month of his epic 8 month visit to your career sector, but also turning retrograde on the 2nd March, opening the door to second chances and an opportunity to retrace your steps, this sets the scene for some surprise developments on both the income and professional fronts this month. With this comes a need to work smarter, but also work to ensure that the communication lines are open across the board. This comes at a time when there is a need to pay a lot more attention to work/life balance issues, something that you'll need to juggle for the rest of the year and beyond.
On the 5th November 2013 Venus, planet of love, desire and attraction began what is normally a 4 week trip down memory lane, giving you a chance to revisit the past before her return to your sign brings your heart's focus onto the future and opening new doors. However, you waited and you waited and as each month passed you continued to wait, with the planet of love not only showing no signs of returning, but in the early weeks of the year was headed away not towards your sign. Venus finally fulfils her promise with her return to your sign on the 6th March bringing to an end the longest wait she's had you endure in over 200 years. With the Sun already been and gone and your birthday month wrapped up, it is starting to make sense now why Mercury, having left your sign early last month returned for a double dip visit, keeping your mind and your options open. Mercury only turns direct in your sign on the 1st March and not leaving until the 18th March this has stopped the door from closing on your birthday month, keeping things in play and your mind open, allowing your heart to have the final say. Venus will have a lot of making up for lost time and some explaining to do over why she's so late, something that she'll spend the rest of the month making up for. This brings the promise of a fun and romantically charged month and while this is a powerful year for professional matters, with Saturn turning retrograde in your career sector on the 3rd March and lucky Jupiter only turning direct in your work sector on the 7th March, there was always going to be a need to pace yourself. Despite the fact that new doors are already opening on the income front, it's not until Venus returns early next month that you need to be ready to hit your stride on the work and income fronts. In the meantime, there is a sense of adventure in the air this month that is also opening the door to second chances.
Whether you are a February or a March born Pisces this is your month, with the Sun not leaving your sign until the 23rd March and your birthday month in full swing. What is missing this year is any urgency, despite the fact that the month will begin with a New Moon in your sign on the 1st March and the call this will always bring to draw a new line in the sand. Yet while Mercury returned to your sign on the 1st February to begin the job of getting your head around your options, as he retrograded back out again and won't return until the 18th March and with your heart not becoming engaged until Venus returns early next month, all you are doing at this stage is exploring your options. Until heart and mind become engaged, which they won't fully do until early next month, it is far too early to commit to the promises and expectations you would normally commit to during your birthday month. Even after the Sun leaves your sign on the 23rd March, don't be surprised if you don't know what you want from your new solar year, let alone be in a position to make up your mind or commit to a game plan. This doesn't stop you from getting the ball rolling, but there is a need to remain open to a change of heart and/or mind, expecting that this will be the case. This frees you up from the pressure that sometimes comes with a new solar year, with a fear that if you get it wrong at the start, you'll remain out of sync for the rest of the year. With Venus due to spend the majority of April in your sign, trust that when the time comes you'll know exactly what you want from the future, which is always the hardest part. This allows you take a more relaxed approach to things and with Venus spending the majority of the month in a nostalgic part of your chart, to take a trip down love's memory lane. Venus will return there during lucky Jupiter's last full day in retrograde motion in your romantic sector and while the doors to the past are still open. Meanwhile, it's not just the love gods that will be active this month, but the money gods as well, especially when it comes to income opportunities.
