March is always a transition month for you, with the first three weeks of this month also the final three weeks of your old solar year, with the Sun’s return to Aries on the 21st March marking the start of your birthday month and new solar year. As Venus and Mercury travel with the Sun, but not to such a strict timetable, they can return first and when that happens the lines between the past, present and future become blurred. At this is the case this year, with Mercury returning to Aries on the 6th March and Venus on the 7th March. This will exacerbate a sense that it is time to move with Uranus, in Aries since 2010, getting ready to leave in May.
At the same time there are two different camps brewing, that from the get go bring a need to make a balance between work and play a priority. In one camp you have Mars in an adventurous part of your chart working together with planets in a playful part of your chart. Together this is creating a potent cocktail of nostalgic, romantic, adventurous and passionate forces. Or at least that will be the case until the 18th March, when Mars leaves an adventurous part of your chart and then just a day later, Ceres will turn direct in a playful part of your chart. This will take the nostalgic and passionate forces out of the mix, while still leaving playful forces.
In another camp something is brewing across the income, work and career fronts. The month starts with some strong forces in play on the career front, but they are both slow and stable and it looks like nothing much will change. A Full Moon in your work sector on the 2nd March will give work and job matters a jump start, but the real month begins with Mars’ return to your career sector on the 18th March. By the time Venus returns to your income sector on the 31st March you should be starting to gain some real professional momentum.
Aries March 2018 Love Horoscope
While the focus is more definitely on matters of the heart rather than your relationships this month, this is a month of two halves, where the line between the two is blurred. The first half is steeped in romantic nostalgia, while the second half is full of new romantic promise. The first half has the doors open to the past and second chances, while the second half has the doors open to the future and new possibilities. Yet rather than a single line between the two, there are two lines, with two periods this month where the shift takes place. It is in the middle period between the two, the transition or watershed period, that the past, present and future will co exist. This creates a month that is more a month of three parts.
The first part runs until the 7th March. In that period Venus, planet of love is in her final days in a nostalgic part of your chart and with Ceres in retrograde motion in your romantic sector, it is all about the past. Venus and Ceres are sister planets, both coming from love and both focused on your needs. And during the first week of the month they are both looking to the past, taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane as they hold the doors open to the past and second chances.
The second phase begins with Venus’ return to Aries on the 7th March, with the planet of love turning her focus to the future and new possibilities. Yet with Ceres in retrograde motion in your romantic sector until the 19th March, the doors are still open to the past and second chances. That period from the 7th March to the 19th March is the transition period, where the past, present and future co exist. It is Ceres’ direct turn on the 23rd March that all the romantic focus shifts to the future. With Venus not leaving Aries until the 31st March, these two love goddesses can take you by each hand, into the future with confidence.
Aries March 2018 Money Horoscope
That there is any focus on either of your two money houses moving into March is not the norm, but then norm went out the window when Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion returned to your financial sector in October. While all the other planets moving through at the time moved on Jupiter stayed and on the 9th March will turn retrograde, almost five months after returning. This is the start of a four month retrograde phase that will see the focus on your financial situation and money matters continue, but the attention turn to the past and to the rear view mirror. This will be a chance to retrace your steps, spend time back at the drawing board and working with what is already on the table.
This will leave a gap for income matters to have their turn, but with the Sun not returning to your income sector until later next month, this is too soon for that. Or at least that will be the case until Venus, planet of money returns to your income sector on the 31st March. This might only impact the closing hours of March, but what Venus opens the door to is something incredible. From Venus’ return there will be an unbroken chain of planetary activity until Uranus returns on the 16th May to begin an eight year visit. This is the first time you have had a major outer planet, the only kind that can keep things going for years, since Uranus himself left in 1942.
This makes this an important month for gaining as much professional traction as possible, so that when the doors open to new income developments you’re ready. Fortunately, at what is normally a quiet point in your professional year, things are anything but. It starts with a Full Moon in your work sector on the 6th March and continues with Mars’ return to your career sector on the 18th March. By the time Venus returns to your income sector on the 31st March you should have some real professional momentum going.
Aries March 2018 Career Horoscope
January is always the most active month of any year for career matters with the Sun, Mercury and Venus all wrapping up a visit that helped to get this new professional year off the ground. Since Pluto’s return in 2008, the planet of change and revolution has been charged with keeping the wheels turning after that initial push. This year, thanks to Saturn’s return just before Christmas, you have two planets on board. Yet with Saturn here until December 2020, Pluto until November 2024 and as they won’t even align until early 2020, this is a partnership that will literally take years to build.
With the Sun not returning to your career sector until December and Venus and Mercury not returning until January 2019, last month’s slow and steady approach should only deepen this month. Yet while that will be the case during the early weeks of the month, things will change dramatically. Yet the professional gods have a chance to place a shot across the bows in the early days of the month, with a Full Moon in your work sector on the 2nd March. This is a Full Moon that falls here at around this time every year, but you’ve never had Saturn and Pluto in your career sector at the same time.
It is less what this might trigger on the job front and more the impact on your professional game in general. An intuitive read on work and job matters at the start of the month will bring a sense that something big is building. That will be confirmed when the Moon moves through your career sector from the 10th March to the 13th March. However, the real change doesn’t come until the 18th March, but when it comes it could change everything. For this is when Mars not only returns to your career sector, but will spend much of the next six months firing things up. With Pluto able to effect change and Saturn giving you the power to move mountains if you have to, this is a game changer.
