Capricorn March 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


While March is a month where there are a lot of planetary shifts and where we have both Jupiter and Mercury turning retrograde, by far the most important event this month is Mars’ return to Capricorn on the 18th March. Last month was adjusting to having Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, something that has not happened before in our lifetime. When your birthday month ended in January, once Venus and Mercury left, this gave you a chance to adjust to having Saturn and Pluto here. Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 and with Saturn here until December 2020 and Pluto until November 2024, like it or not they are bedfellows for the next three years.

Pluto is the planet of change and revolution, but after eight years if you haven’t made any significant changes yet, then you need some help. Saturn is a planet that is all about structure, discipline and focus, while doing whatever it takes for as long as it takes. Where Pluto can call for change, Saturn brings the discipline to stick to those changes. Yet working together for the next three years and not even due to align until January 2020, this is a slow and steady journey. Or at least it will be until Mars returns on the 18th March, teaming up with Pluto and Saturn together in Capricorn for the first time in our lifetime.

Mars is set to spend an extraordinary amount of time here over the next six months, spread out over two visits. Mars will return to shake things up, creating the potential for major personal change and some major evolution over the coming months. In the meantime, starting the month with six planets in your communication sector, a smart and intellectually savvy part of your chart, will give you an edge in all areas of your life. This is also a big month for home and family matters, something that will continue through to mid May. The real surprise is Venus’ return to a playful and romantically charged part of your chart on the 31st March, opening the doors to something special.

Love 2017Capricorn March 2018 Love Horoscope

While you will literally have to wait until the final hours of the month for new romantic opportunities to open up, as this will mark the start of a romantic chapter that will take until 2026 to run its course, you can afford to wait. You can not only afford to wait, but can use the month to better prepare for the game changing romantic developments over the coming months. It is Venus, planet of love’s return to your romantic sector on the 31st March that will kick things off, but it is the Sun’s return next month and Mercury and Uranus’ in May that will take this to a whole new level. That’s right Uranus, planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected and a major outer planet returns to your romantic sector on the 16th May, where he’ll stay until 2026.

What lies ahead is not just the Sun, Mercury and Venus moving through for a few weeks, but the start of a major new romantic reality and journey. As you wait for Venus’ return on the 31st March, this makes the Moon’s return from the 20th March to the 22nd March a lot more important. This is the Moon’s only visit to your romantic sector this month, with romantically charged lunar vibes running their course just nine days before Venus is due to return. By then Venus will be working to make your life as love friendly as possible, knowing what lies ahead.

In the meantime, while there is no planetary activity on the relationship front, there is a lot of activity on the communication front. You start the month with six planets in your communication sector, but it is who those planets are that makes a difference. You have Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships in your communication sector until the 7th March and Mercury, planet of communication until the 6th March. You also have Chiron, planet of healing spending his last full month in your communication sector and Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships still in the early days of her first visit in four years. The communication gods are fielding their A team, with your relationships benefiting from this.

Money 2017Capricorn March 2018 Money Horoscope

Things quieten down on the income and financial fronts this month, with intensity of last month’s eclipses over. The Sun’s month long visit to your income sector, which ended on the 19th February, hosted both a total lunar eclipse in your financial sector and a solar eclipse in your income sector. The reason for that is that with the lunar nodes in your two money houses from May 2017 to November 2018, each time the Sun moves through either of your money houses this will trigger an eclipse. This is the reason why you had a total solar eclipse in your financial sector and lunar eclipse in your income sector in August and why you will have another pair of eclipses in July.

Without the Sun here the lunar nodes move back to their main focus, which is maintaining a balance between money coming in and money going out. The balance of power this month does however shift to money matters as a whole, for unlike your income sector, where there is no planetary activity, you have Ceres in your financial sector. Even after she leaves there will be continuous planetary activity on the financial front all year. Yet because the lunar nodes must always be in balance, this increases your chances of keeping the income momentum of the last few months going.

With Ceres in retrograde motion in your financial sector until the 19th March, a lot of the financial focus is on the rear view mirror, with a chance to look back and learn from the past. Especially when it comes to defining your financial needs and priorities. Ceres is not focused on the money, which is simply a means to an end and because of that you have a chance to redefine your definition of financial success. It is important to reflect less on the money and more on your relationship with money.

Career 2017Capricorn March 2018 Career Horoscope

Once again you have a quiet month on the professional front and while this may still feel strange, what you’re experiencing is the return to a normal pattern. From Mercury’s return to your career sector in August 2016 to Mars’ departure in December 2017, there had been 16 months of continuous planetary activity. Included in that period was the 13 months that Jupiter spent here. With a lot of that time spent in opposition with Uranus and Eris in your home and family sector, much of that 16 month period was dogged by professional pressure or work/life balance tension. Yet as challenging as that was, with Mars having just left in December, this is something that you’re now reaping the benefits from.

You have gained a huge amount of momentum and with no planetary activity in either your work or career sectors in the early months of each year, this has been a valuable chance to regroup. The Sun moves through your work sector in May/June and through your career sector in September/October. As Venus and Mercury travel with the Sun, these are the most active months of any year, when we are in a normal pattern, which is what you’re reverting to this year. However, Venus is racing ahead this year and will return to your work sector next month. This is still part of the normal pattern, but it means you have just one more month before things start to move on the job front.

The fact that Venus is racing ahead this year also means this will impact career matters later in the year. While the Sun won’t return to your career sector until the 23rd September, Venus will return on the 7th August. Not only that, instead of racing through in 24 days, this is a visit that won’t wrap up until December. So in the scheme of things March is one of the few quiet months you have left this year, so enjoy it. This makes it important to have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground when the Moon moves through your career sector from the 3rd March to the 6th March and again from the 31st March to the 2nd April. It is this visit that will trigger a Full Moon on the 1st April. Just as important will be the Moon’s visit to your work sector from the 22nd March to the 24th March.
