Libra March 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


This month is a mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary, with everything that you would normally expect at this time of year here, but in an exaggerated form. That is especially so on the job and relationship fronts, with the ordinary set to become the extraordinary. You will notice this first on the job front, where it is very ordinary and normal to have the focus on work and job matters at this time of year. That is because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of March in your work sector. What is extraordinary is not just the six planets here at the start of the month, but that for the first time in 12 years this comes with the support of lucky Jupiter on the income front.

While the Sun will leave and return to your relationship sector on the 21st March, weeks before that you will be discovering that something extraordinary is developing there as well. It starts with Mercury, planet of communication’s return to your relationship sector on the 6th March and Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships’ return on the 7th March. Both Venus and Mercury return at around the same time as the Sun each year, give or take a few weeks, making their return this early in the month very ordinary.

What makes this extraordinary is both that you have Mars in your communication sector and that Uranus, in your relationship sector since 2010, is getting ready to leave. While Uranus won’t leave until the 16th May, this explains Mercury’s retrograde turn on the 23rd March. In retrograde motion Mercury not only has a chance to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice, but to spend more than his usual three weeks. With Mercury not leaving until the 14th May, he’s here to make Uranus’ final months count.

Love 2017Libra March 2018 Love Horoscope

That the focus is on your relationships this month is both a given and nothing like what you experienced this time last year. The Sun will always return to your relationship sector on or around the 21st March, but to have Mercury return on the 6th March and Venus on the 7th March is all completely normal. Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication travel with the Sun, but can often return several days or weeks ahead or behind and that’s the case this year. Last year this was a problem, for with Jupiter in Libra, as each planet returned to your relationship sector they moved into opposition.

This was on top of the fact that both Uranus, in your relationship sector since 2010 and Eris, here for 92 years, had both already moved into opposition and would twice more before Jupiter left in October. This may have created a lot of relationship tension at this time last year, which might see old defences raised before you receive the all clear. This year Venus and Mercury not only return to find no challenges, but nothing but support and a sense that it was time to bring everything together.

That support is coming from Mars, in your communication sector until the 18th March and from the North Node and Ceres in your friendship sector, creating some auspicious conditions for friendship and relationship building. Yet Venus and Mercury also return to find Uranus is preparing to leave and while he won’t leave until May, this is when the journey of the past eight years moves into its final chapter. Venus will leave your relationship sector on the 31st March but Mercury, who normally moves through in just 15 days will stay on. A retrograde turn on the 23rd March will give the planet of communication a chance to not only stay on, but give the past and unsaid words a voice. Mercury won’t leave until the 14th May, just two days before Uranus.

Money 2017Libra March 2018 Money Horoscope

This is a big month for income matters, with the final hours of the month opening the doors to new developments on the financial front. This is literally in the final hours, with Venus’ return to your financial sector on the 31st March opening the door to some stunning developments over the coming months. This will have little impact this month, but does account for a growing sense of financial confidence and anticipation. That will be especially strong during the Moon’s last visit before Venus arrives, from 20th March to the 22nd March. Until then it is income matters that will once again dominate the month.

That has been the case since Jupiter returned to your income sector in October. With developments on the financial front from the end of this month, Jupiter’s golden run as the only planet in either of your two money houses is about to end, but here for nearly six months by then, he and your income situation will benefit from and will be ready for some competition. Until then there is a lot happening on the income front this month. The first is the massive support, with the month starting with six planets in your work sector. One of those planets is Venus, planet of money, who will always work to steer work and job matters in a lucrative direction.

The second impact on income matters happens on the 9th March, just two days after Venus’ departure from your work sector on the 7th March. It is on the 9th March that Jupiter turns retrograde, beginning a four month retrograde phase that will give the planet of luck and expansion a chance to retrace his steps. After nearly five months in your income sector by then there will be a lot to go back over, with support from planets on the job front continuing throughout that time and right through to and even after Jupiter’s departure in November. The Moon’s visit to your income sector from the 6th March to the 8th March will ensure your nose for money is sharp as Venus leaves your work sector and Jupiter prepares to turn retrograde.

Career 2017Libra March 2018 Career Horoscope

Regardless of what is happening in the rest of your chart, the one thing that you can guarantee is that the spotlight will always be on work and job matters at this time of year. That is because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of March in your work sector. With Chiron here since 2010 and Neptune since 2012, while work and job matters will tick over throughout the year, when the solar spotlight turns the solar spotlight onto work and job matters, this is when things start to happen. As is usually the case, where you find the Sun you will also find Venus and Mercury, but to move into March with six planets is extraordinary.

Even just having the Sun, Mercury and Venus here at the same time is an advantage, something that last happened in 2016. All three will move through at around this time each year, but not necessarily all at the same time. When this happens, which it does once every two to three years, then you have heart and head in the game at the same time that the solar spotlight is on work and job matters, giving you a much better chance to work with what this reveals. This year you have six planets with the sixth being Juno, queen of commitment who returned on the 24th February.

With Mercury leaving on the 6th March and Venus on the 7th March, it is the first six days of the month that you have all available professional gods on the field. This brings a need to start the month putting everything you have into everything you do. However, a Full Moon on the 2nd March will police that you still know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. Yet while it is the norm to have the focus on work and job matters at this time of year, it has been 12 years since you had lucky Jupiter in your income sector at the same time. A friendly aspect not only adds to your job confidence, but can make this a lucrative month as well. For while the Sun will leave on the 21st March, three planets will stay on to keep the wheels turning.
