How can I serve? That's your mantra to ponder as the Sun visits Pisces until March 19th, accenting your sixth house of health and helpfulness. Peacemaker Venus (your ruling planet) also travels alongside generous Jupiter for most of March, putting you in benevolent spirits. Suddenly, your cup runneth over, and you feel inspired to share, help and make a difference. (Hint: if you're feeling cranky or dissatisfied, giving back is your cure-all.) The March 8th Virgo full moon in your compassionate twelfth house is perfect for hosting or attending a charity event, or getting involved in a cause.Some exercise and fresh air will do you right, too. It's a great month to start healthy habits for the spring season, and to add organic produce, healthy grains and even fresh-pressed juices to your regimen. A little immune system boosting will be helpful now, since you can expect to be around a lot of people this month (hello, airborne infections and nasty contact germs). The sixth house rules organization, so take some time out to systematize and declutter, especially during the last week of the month.On March 19th, the Sun moves into Aries, your seventh house of partnership. It's a great time to collaborate, both for business and pleasure. Relationships get a fresh start at the March 22nd Aries new moon. They might just need a tune-up! Communication planet Mercury is retrograde (backward) from March 12-April 4, which could cause misunderstandings, travel problems, and technology troubles. Since Mercury is retrograde in Aries from March 12-23 (it backs into Pisces after that), you'll need to handle your closest relationships with kid gloves to avoid meltdowns. From the 23rd on, stock up on the Emergen-C and hand sanitizer, as Mercury retrograde will be in Pisces, your health sign. You don't want to welcome spring with a seasonal cold-there's too much fun to be had.
The whole world is feeling optimistic about love now, and you can take some of the credit for that. Your ruling planet Venus is traveling side-by-side with expansive, happy-go-lucky Jupiter. March is a great month for romantic adventure, or for taking a chance on someone new. People are feeling charitable, compassionate and open-minded this month-which will hopefully offset some of the discord that Mercury retrograde stirs up (more on that in a sec). Why all the warm fuzzies floating around? Venus and Jupiter are in Taurus, which rules your solar eighth house of intimacy, sex and bonding. Some Libras could get a proposal-others, a proposition. (You might be the one doing the propositioning yourself, actually!) Whether you're in the mood to make things official or just have a spring fling, this is a "carpe diem"/seize the day kind of month. Don't let your habit of evaluating things endlessly prevent you from enjoying an adventure or living in the moment. Under this transit, you're more open-hearted, trusting and willing to bare your soul. This vulnerability will only make you more attractive, Libra. If you've been holding onto hurt, the Venus-Jupiter conjunction puts you in a forgiving and generous mood. Is there someone you need to apologize to, or whose apology you still haven't accepted? You might give this person the benefit of the doubt, and maybe even a second chance. Don't be surprised if s/he comes begging for another chance. Mercury is retrograde in Aries, your relationship sign, from March 12-23-a cycle that turns your attention back to the past, and brings ex-partners come out of the woodwork. Have you been carrying a torch or hanging onto hope? Mercury retrograde will show you whether someone is worthy of another shot. For couples, whatever you've swept under the rug will resurface during Mercury retrograde-or even sooner at the March 8th Virgo full moon. Unresolved feelings can resurface during Mercury retrograde. The full moon falls in your twelfth house of closure, secrets and healing, and this celestial spotlight could reveal a bunch of hidden agendas or repressed resentments. Libras are notorious conflict avoiders, so any shakeups can ultimately improve your relationship, as long as you don't lapse into denial or blame.The March 22nd Aries new moon could be the start of something beautiful-possibly out of the blue. Communicator Mercury and Uranus (planet of technology and unexpected events) are in Aries that day, too. Single Libras could meet "the one" near this date, maybe even online. Or, you may have a strong epiphany that helps you cut ties with either toxic people or patterns and make a powerful, decisive new start in your love life. Not everyone will understand your choices near this date, especially if they come on suddenly. You should definitely avoid taking rash actions-but if you've been dragging your feet, there's no better time to make a move than now.
March brings back your vibrance, and it's a great month for a well-being makeover. The Sun spends the first three weeks in Pisces, your sixth house of health and fitness. If you didn't already start a health kick at last month's Pisces new moon, there's plenty of time to shift your priorities and start some new routines. Guard against those early spring viruses when Mercury goes retrograde in Pisces form March 23-April 4. With beautifying Venus and worldly Jupiter in your internal eighth house, it's a great time to bring your glow back from the inside out. Consider a cleanse or a detox now. The March 8th Virgo full moon in your healing twelfth house is a great time for a yoga retreat, a solo getaway (near water if possible) or just a day in bed.A lucky grand trine between Jupiter, Pluto and Mars during the week of March 11-17 could bring closure with a family member, a spiritual awakening or a major epiphany that strengthens your clarity and conviction. If you're the kind of Libra who wants to change the world (in whatever small way), you'll feel a burst of passion and purpose during this time.
Focus on the practical details this month, and take a little trip to the Container Store. The Sun is in Pisces until March 19th, your sixth house of organization and administration. Spend time getting some solid systems in place. Do it on the earlier side, since Mercury will bre retrograde (backward) March 12-April 4, which could wreak havoc on your concentration. Be sure to back up all your data and double-confirm plans, since computer crashes are at an all-time high during Mercury retrograde.While Mercury is retrograde in Pisces from March 23-April 4, you may need to crack the whip with people who work for you. The folks on your team could be a tad disgruntled, even stirring up some mutiny. Nip that "Occupy Libra" uprising in the bud-and cool it with your own "one-percenter" attitude. Are you driving people crazy with unclear instructions and expectations? If so, regroup and make sure everyone is on the same page with a full understanding of the scope of work.Luckily, you shouldn't have too much trouble getting everyone back to a unified front. Your ruler, charming Venus, is cycling alongside lucky Jupiter in Taurus, your eighth house of wealth and shared property. This is a great time to schmooze your way into a deal, or to do that necessary "relationship building" that could ultimately lead to signed contracts. Fortunately, working the room is what most Libras do best! With romantic Venus in the mix, you could decide to open a joint bank account with your sweetie, or to pool your resources for your mutual benefit. This month, you might invest in real estate, or renovate your home to increase the property value (and, as a side benefit, your enjoyment of living there). If you're having trouble selling, consider hiring a home stager or sprucing up the place to make it more visually appealing. The Venus-Jupiter alignment could also bring a nice IRS refund, as the eighth house rules taxes. Maybe you can splurge on a vacation or something not 100 percent practical that you've been coveting for a while.
