The key to getting a handle of any work/life balance tension at the start of the month is to first realise that this is an opportunity and not a problem. Nothing is broken that needs fixing and instead there is a chance to find that kind of balance that both sides will benefit from. The second thing to realise is that it is all about working smarter. With lucky Jupiter spending his first full month in retrograde motion in your career sector in 12 years, there was always going to be a need to pull back. Jupiter is here until October, in retrograde motion until early June and other forces will keep career matters in play right through to December. Even without a line up of planets on the home front demanding their share of your attention, work/life balance and pacing yourself were always going to be important.
This is simply forcing the issue and demanding that it be dealt with now. For as far as the planets lined up in your home and family sector are concerned, they’re not here to create challenges and instead to bring some real opportunities across the home, family and/or property fronts. Until leaving on the 10th March Mars is giving you the passion, energy and motivation to get stuck in, make things happen and get things done. Venus will spend the whole of March in your home and family sector, but from the 4th March will turn retrograde, holding the doors open to the past and second chances.
This is a big month for your home and professional lives and it’s just a matter of figuring out how to balance things. Keep things in perspective as some fun, playful, romantic and creative forces, along with a sense of adventure, are both fighting back within a few days of each other. It begins with Mars’ return to your romantic and creative sector on the 10th March, where he’ll spend the next six weeks fuelling your romantic and creative passions. Just three days later a Full Moon in an adventurous part of your chart on the 13th March will unleash a sense of work/life balance. By that point you’ll be ready to see work/life balance as the gift that it is.
Capricorn March 2017 Love Horoscope
To start with there is every reason to be outraged. On the 3rd February Venus, planet of love returned to a domesticated part of your chart, always the last stop before returning to your romantic sector. Venus will normally spend 24 days, with the focus on making your life as love friendly as possible, ahead of the most romantically charged months of each year.
To be fair, with the Sun not returning to your romantic sector until the 20th April, it was never an option that Venus would return two months early. Even if she could there are rules governing how far ahead the planet of love can get and by mid February she was already being pulled back. So I have both good and bad news for you this month, but as I can’t ask whether you want the good or the bad news first, I will go ahead and deliver the bad news. Venus won’t be returning this month, nor next month or even the month after and instead won’t return to Taurus until early June.
The good news is that she has already sent one replacement with another special replacement arriving on the 10th March. By the time Venus eventually returns three months later, she’ll return to a very active romantic scene and not leaving until July, she will be the cherry on the cake. On the 5th February, about the same time that Venus was realising she wasn’t going to make it back to your romantic sector anytime soon Ceres, dwarf planet and fellow goddess of the solar system arrived. If you can’t have Venus, then Ceres is definitely the next best thing.
Not due to leave until the 30th April, Ceres will keep the romantic flame burning in that 24 days. Venus would have, had she returned this month. Ceres is the crowd warmer, focused less on attracting romantic opportunities and more on getting to the heart of what you want from love and she was the perfect planet for the job. For on the 10th March Mars will return, making his first visit to your romantic sector in nearly two years. Mars will continue to fuel your romantic passions and fighting spirit through to the 21st April, a day after the Sun returns to take his place.
Capricorn March 2017 Money Horoscope
For the first time in four years all the planetary activity in your income sector for the year is over by the 1st March, but only just and the end of planetary activity does not mean the end of the story. The Moon and Mercury left your income sector within minutes of each other in the final days of February, allowing you to start the month with a nose for money and a smart head for money from the get go.
Mercury only left three days before you moved into March and the Sun just a week earlier, so your annual update has only just come to an end. The Sun will always leave your income sector around the 19th February each year, so will always be gone by now. However, Venus and Mercury, who will always travel with the Sun, will often stay back in order to help tie up loose ends.
This year Venus is travelling ahead of schedule and while she was in your income sector as you moved into the year, she left in the early days of the New Year and won’t be back until 2018, as will Mars who left just before Christmas. This front loaded your year, in that you began the year with a clear sense of what you’re fighting for from the get go. For the first time in 12 years you have lucky Jupiter in your career sector and while there is no more planetary activity in your income sector, there is plenty of professional momentum to keep the money flowing.
The Moon’s visit to your income sector from the 23rd March to the 25th March will bring the nose for money needed to check that you’re still on the right trail. Likewise, the Moon’s visit to your financial sector from the 9th March to the 11th March will sharpen your financial instincts and give you an intuitive read on money matters.
Capricorn March 2017 Career Horoscope
If it was any other planet than Jupiter, you could feel sorry for the planet of luck and expansion this month, under pressure from three planets. However, when you consider that Jupiter is huge, bigger and more powerful than every other planet and with the Moon in the solar system combined and you can appreciate that three planets is still no match.
Those planets are not only located in your home and family sector, but in the closing days of February they joined forces in an exact alignment. This is creating some professional pressure and work/life balance tension in particular, but this is more likely to work for rather than against you. Your job is to make sure this doesn’t dent your confidence and that you use this as motivation instead.
This is Jupiter’s first full month in retrograde motion in your career sector in 12 years, with the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential. So there is huge opportunity and potential and that will continue until Jupiter turns direct in early June, after which some of the most stunning professional conditions in a decade will open up. Yet in retrograde motion Jupiter is giving you a chance to pull back, retrace your steps and spend time back at the drawing board.
The fact that work/life balance issues are being forced on you now is a good thing, for even the professional gods need you to pull back. When Jupiter turned retrograde last month he had to come to a complete standstill in order to make his U turn and with that there is always a danger of things becoming stalled or stuck. This is where pressure can work to your advantage, you are able to give anything stuck a push start. By the time you move into March everything is already out in the open and by the 3rd March any pressure will have peaked and will be dropping back. From that point there are still three months of untapped potential to explore. The Moon’s visit to your career sector from the 13th March to the 16th March will bring a chance to regroup.
