March is a month when the focus is always on relationship and money matters, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of March in your relationship sector before returning to your financial sector. However, both are areas of your chart where there has been ongoing planetary activity for years, so it is less that the focus will shift from your relationship and onto money matters and more that the balance of power will start to shift. That shift begins much earlier in the month, starting with Mercury’s departure from your relationship sector and return to your financial sector on the 6th March, followed by Venus on the 7th March.
This makes their final days in your relationship sector count, especially as Mercury is the planet of communication and Venus is the planet of love and guardian of your relationships. There is something special and healing developing on the relationship front throughout the month and Venus and Mercury are vital players in this. You start the month with six planets in your relationship sector, with a Full Moon in Virgo on the 2nd March possibly creating some personal and/or relationship tension. This is a Full Moon that falls at this time every year and is a chance to shake a few trees, ensuring you have the right balance between your personal and relationship needs.
With Venus and Mercury on board, this is more an opportunity for a breakthrough and really begin the healing process as Chiron, planet of healing spends his last full month in your relationship sector. As Venus leaves your relationship sector she will take off her planet of love hat and done her planet of money hat, while Mercury returns a day earlier with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game. This will be no passing visit for Mercury, for turning retrograde on the 23rd March he is here until the 14th May. This is also a big month for heart and mind being on the same page, especially until the 18th March and for matters of the heart, all month but especially from the 18th March.
Virgo March 2018 Love Horoscope
You start the month with six planets in your relationship sector, putting an extreme amount of focus on your relationships. But it is not just the number of planets in your relationship sector that count, but the calibre of those planets and what it all means. This comes at a point where romantic matters are more settled and stable and as it doesn’t look like anything is going to change there, this will put the main focus on your relationships, especially at the start of the month. The reality is there are major changes on the romantic front this month, but not until the 18th March. As most of the important relationship stuff will be over by then, this allows you to put all your focus onto your relationships until the 18th March and then letting matters of the heart in.
The month starts with Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication in their final days in your relationship sector, with Mercury leaving on the 6th March and Venus on the 7th March. For Venus these are important days for with Chiron, planet of healing leaving next month, this is her last chance to connect with him here for another four decades. Chiron will pop back for a few months before leaving for good and it is then that the Sun and Mercury will meet up with him again, next February. However, Venus won’t be making this an especially healing time. You also have Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships making her first visit to your relationship sector in four years.
With the Sun staying on until the 21st March and a New Moon here on the 18th March, the solar spotlight is on your relationship sector during the first three weeks of March. Yet it is on the 18th March that Mars not only returns to your romantic sector, but on a mission to shake things up. Normally moving through in just six weeks, Mars will not only spend two months here, but will retrograde back in for a double dip visit in August, where he’ll spend another four weeks.
Virgo March 2018 Money Horoscope
The Sun’s return to your financial sector on the 21st March will turn the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters, something that happens at this time every year. However, things will start moving before that and in an empowered way. With Eris in your financial sector since 1926 and Uranus since 2010, there is always going to be at least some focus on your financial situation and money matters. This is why, with Jupiter in your income sector and in opposition with Eris and Uranus from September 2016 to October 2017, this may have created some financial tension. Yet this is something you’re now reaping the benefits from.
Mercury’s return to your financial sector on the 6th March is the first of the annual planets to arrive, those that turn the focus more to mundane money matters and kick off an active point of any year. Mercury returns with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game and to make smart financial choices, decisions and plans. Normally moving through in just 15 days, this is when Mercury can help you get on top of money matters. Mercury has a special affinity to Uranus, who is known as the ‘higher octave’ of Mercury. By that it means that they are cut from the same cloth, but while Mercury looks at the details, Uranus looks at the bigger picture.
Mercury returns to find Uranus in his final months and due to leave on the 16th May, he knows that this is the last time they will meet up here in our lifetime. It is no wonder than that Mercury refuses to leave and instead will turn retrograde on the 23rd March. This will give you a chance to return to the drawing board. This will also keep Mercury here until the 14th May, just two days before Uranus leaves. Venus’ return on the 7th March will help fuel your financial confidence, desires and expectations, while the Sun will turn the solar spotlight onto money matters from the 21st March.
Virgo March 2018 Career Horoscope
Things dial back on the professional front this month, giving you a much needed chance to pull back and let things settle. With the Sun not returning to your career sector until the 21st May, as is the case each year, past experience suggests that you have two full months with no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses, with plenty of time to let things settle. In reality you have just one full month and unlike other years, things haven’t exactly gone off the boil on the job front. The last of four planets did leave your work sector on the 24th February but with the South Node, the force behind last month’s solar eclipse still here, this is still keeping things in motion.
The South Node is not a planet or even an object and instead is a gravitational force. The difference this month to the last two months is that you’re no longer driving the car and this is akin to being in a self driving car, with the professional gods at the wheel. This allows you to settle back and enjoy the scenery, once you can let go of a need to control or drive things. Once you can learn to trust your instincts and quite literally ‘go with the flow’, the more you’ll realise that things have their own rhythm. The Moon’s return to your work sector from the 13th March to the 15th March will be a chance to tap into that.
Another reason why it is important to pull back this month, is that while the Sun won’t return to your career sector until May, Venus is racing ahead and will return next month. With April, May and June all busy months on the career front and as January and February have been busy months on the job front, March is the only month where the professional gods are taking it slowly. This is a chance to work with or on everything triggered over the last few months, but to pull back and let things settle.
