Sagittarius March 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


While there is a lot going on this month, a lot of the focus is on Mars’ final weeks in Sagittarius. Here Mars is both a messenger from the future and the past. Saturn only left Sagittarius just before Christmas, two days before your birthday month ended, but Mercury stayed on until mid January, giving you time to work on your game plan and resolutions for the coming year. By the time Mars returned on the 27th January Mercury had been gone for 16 days and this firebreak meant that there was no direct continuity from Saturn’s three year visit. This allowed Mars to learn from the past, but start a new chapter.

Until leaving Sagittarius on the 18th March, Mars is fuelling your passions and fighting spirit, urging you to follow your passions, the things that excite you or just where a sense of curiosity leaves. For while Mars is learning from the past he is also preparing for the future. When Mars leaves on the 18th March there will be no more planetary activity in Sagittarius until Mercury returns at the end of October. This will be just days before Jupiter returns, with a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion starting in early November. Mars is learning from the past but is already preparing for the major new opportunities ahead.

In the meantime, Mars’ return to your income sector on the 18th March will not only bring some stunning forces into play on the income front, but just 13 days before Venus not only returns to your work sector but opens the door to major new developments over the coming months. These are developments that will see major income and job developments work together for at least the next six years. This makes the focus on both home and family matters and matters of the heart important this month, bringing home the importance of having the right work/life balance and the right balance between work and play.

Love 2017Sagittarius March 2018 Love Horoscope

The solar spotlight is always going to shift onto matters of the heart three weeks into March, but this year things kick off a lot earlier than that. Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication aren’t waiting for the Sun’s return to your romantic sector on the 21st March, with Mercury returning on the 6th March and Venus on the 7th March. It is Venus’ return that marks the official start of the most romantically charged months of 2018 and the most important in a lifetime. With Venus and Mercury returning to your romantic sector each year that sounds like an overstatement, except it is anything but. Eris, warrior planet of the cosmos has been in your romantic sector for 92 years, so finding her here has been the norm for Venus for most of us, for our entire lifetime and will be for another three decades.

Uranus, planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected on the other hand has been in your romantic sector since 2010 and for the past eight years, this has brought Uranus’ laws of synchronicity together with Venus’ laws of attraction. This has made Venus’ return each year a lot more electrically charged over the last eight years. Yet what makes the next few months so important is that Uranus is leaving in May and this is the last time that he will meet up with Venus here in our lifetime. You can guarantee they will work to make it count and while Venus will leave on the 31st March, with the Sun here from the 21st March and Mercury staying on until the 14th May, what the planet of love is able to begin will be in safe hands.

Mercury’s retrograde turn on the 23rd March will not only open the doors to the past and second chances, but means that he’ll be here until two days before Uranus leaves on the 16th May. So yes, Venus’ return on the 7th March not only marks the start of the most romantically charged months of 2018, but in a lifetime. It is less what happens during Venus and Uranus’ final encounter that matters, but what this opens your heart and mind to that can define your romantic expectations forever.

Money 2017Sagittarius March 2018 Money Horoscope

While income matters are the only game in town this month, there are two things going on. The first is what first impressions suggest is going on and the second is what is really going on. First impressions suggest that income forces are strong, stable and slow and that they will remain that way for the rest of the year. When the Sun, Mercury and Venus left your income sector at the end of January, they not only left Pluto behind, as they have done every year since 2008, but for the first time since 1991, Saturn as well. With Saturn here until December 2020 and Pluto until November 2024 neither are in any kind of a hurry and they won’t even align until early 2020. This will be their first alignment anywhere in 38 years and their first here in our lifetime.

Yet this is nearly two years away and with the Sun not returning to your income sector until December and Venus and Mercury not returning until January 2019, this is a stable, steady but very slow march forward. Or so it appears, for remember this is just the first impression of what kind of month this will be and it will remain that way until the 18th March. Then on the 18th March everything changes with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos’ return. Mars will always return to fire things up on the income front, encouraging you to fight for what you deserve and urging you to smash your way through glass ceilings.

It is not just Mars’ return that makes this significant, but who he encounters and how long he’ll stay. This is the first time you have had Mars, Saturn and Pluto in your income sector at the same time in our lifetime, with Mars able to draw on Pluto’s ability to change and Saturn’s power to move mountains if you have to. It is no wonder that Mars is not content to spend just six weeks here, instead spending twice that long, spread out over two visits, which won’t end until September.

Career 2017Sagittarius March 2018 Career Horoscope

That there has been no planetary activity in either of your professional houses so far this year is the norm. With the Sun moving through your work sector in April/May and through your career sector in August/September and Venus and Mercury always travelling with the Sun, these will be the most active months of any year. Or at least that has been the case, but not for much longer. This month there are just a few small signs of movement on the job front, signs that will literally be found in the first and final three days of the month. However, those signs are for game changing developments ahead.

We’ll stick to this month for now, but I’ll end with major news of what lies ahead. With no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses the Moon’s monthly visits to both are important and this month you have three visits, two to your career sector and one to your work sector. The Moon will return to your career sector on the 1st March and leave on the 3rd March, but it is the Full Moon this will create on the 2nd March that is the first significant event of this professional year. However, often it is when the Moon comes full circle that the unexpected developments often happen, with what the Full Moon triggers coming to fruition when the Moon returns. For that reason, keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground as the Moon comes full circle, from the 29th March to the 31st March.

On face value there is nothing unusual about the Moon’s visit to your work sector from the 20th March to the 22nd March and in terms of the Moon moving through, you can’t get more ordinary than that. Yet what makes this visit extraordinary is what your instincts and an intuitive read on work and job matters will pick up on. For rather than wait until later next month for new work and job developments, they begin with Venus’ return to your work sector on the 31st March. Not only that, once things start to move they will continue to play out until 2026. For what lies ahead is Uranus’ return, which will take you to a period of your life where work and job matters won’t just be active for a few months each year, but all year for eight years.
