A loner you may be, but March is all about relationships for you. Prepare to partner up if you want to make things happen faster in your life. The Sun visits Pisces and Aries, which rule the partnership and intimacy realms of your chart. The March modus operandi for you, Virgo? Just because you CAN do it alone, doesn't mean you should. Alas, playing well with others won't be a total picnic now. That would be too easy-and Virgos never fully trust things unless they're a little complicated. (This allows you to don your Ms. Fix-It cap and save the day!) Your efficient solutions will be needed from March 12 through April 4, while your ruling planet Mercury is retrograde (backward). Mercury retrogrades are notorious for scrambling technology, foiling travel plans, and making you think that a perfectly fluent English speaker is talking to you in Mandarin Chinese. Communication can get batty now, so try to be the bigger person and not cut people off at their first infraction.Your one heroic solo moment? At the March 8 Virgo full moon, the last six months of your life come together with a flourish. Full moons signify completions, and this one touches whatever you've been working on since your birthday. It's time to make that triumphant break through the finish-line ribbon, do a victory lap, and move on to your next big project!
March is all about you times two, so increase your results by pairing up with some complementary and supportive souls. Whether you're single or coupled, relationships are a big cosmic theme now. The Sun is in Pisces, your partnership sign, until March 19. Where are you getting with that whole "I can do it by myself" posture anyway, Virgo? There's nothing to prove. Allow someone who cares about you to lighten your load. Think about it: you get so much gratification from helping others. Why not allow someone else to feel that same satisfaction by contributing to you?While Mercury is retrograde in Aries and Pisces from March 12 through April 4, the past could come back to haunt (or heal) you. An ex could contact you out of the blue, or you could find yourself pining for the supposed "one that got away." If you truly think this person slipped through the cracks, a little Google-Facebook-Peoplesearch action could turn up that long-lost contact info. Who knows? If you're both still unattached, maybe the second time will be a charm. With dreamy and karmic Neptune now in your relationship house for the next fourteen years, it could be divine timing, indeed. (Cue the Nora Ephron movie soundtrack.)The less enticing possibility of Mercury retrograde is that it could incite squabbling over sex, money, or the division of responsibilities-or just plain-old taking out your frustrations on each other. You're walking through a landmine of potential misunderstandings during this cycle, so take it easy on the hair-trigger reactions. With hotheaded Mars also retrograde in Virgo until mid-April, you're likely to fly off the handle faster than usual. Some old trust issues could be stirred up, especially after the 23rd, or you may feel sexually out-of-sync. Most of this can be addressed with some honest, open dialogue-and giving each other the benefit of the doubt!On a positive note, love-planet Venus travels alongside lucky Jupiter in Taurus all month. Taurus rules your adventurous ninth house of travel, study, and expansion. You could meet someone while you're en route somewhere fabulous, or you could plan a spontaneous trip to spice up your love life. Just do it before March 12, as Mercury retrograde can be a tricky time to travel. After that, you might want to make it a sexy "staycation." Single Virgos could meet someone in a class, a workshop, or a bookstore (the ninth house rules the curious higher mind), or even studying a foreign language. You could be attracted to someone from a different cultural background or drawn to a long-distance relationship. No reason to let a few miles come between you if the attraction is there!
Your energy may be all over the map: you're up one minute, crashing the next. That's because intense Mars is retrograde in Virgo from January 23 through April 13, messing with your mojo and bottle-necking your flow. The easiest solution is to trudge on over to your favorite fitness emporium and sweat it out, Virgo. You're taking in so much stress now, and your services are in high demand. Everyone wants a piece of you! As a result, you need to crank up your self-care and seek new outlets to release pent-up tension. You might try a cleanse or a radical revamp of your eating habits from March 12 through March 23, while your ruler Mercury is retrograde in your internal eighth house. This is a good time to dig out of a lethargic winter rut, especially if it included numbing yourself with crappy food. You need some life force energy, so choose foods that make you feel alive and alert. Your environment could probably use an overhaul, too. Purge those files cluttering your computer, and back up any memory-hogging data to an external drive or a Cloud. Clean out your closets (this is practically an Olympic sport for your organization-loving sign) and donate any gently used goods. Welcome spring with a clear mind, body, soul, and space.
Finances can be fruitful AND frustrating this month. From March 12 through March 23, Mercury is retrograde in Aries, your eighth house of long-term and joint wealth. You might be dealing with a complicated tax filing, debt demands, or a tough real estate matter. Guard against identity theft now, as "secure" information can slip through the cracks during this tricky tech time. Business and romantic partners may squabble over money or the way things are divided up. While Mercury is retrograde in Pisces from March 23 through April 4, it's a good time to hash out terms, or to revise and amend any contracts. If possible, delay the actual signing until Mercury goes direct on April 4. The March 22 Aries new moon could bring a windfall or a new financial opportunity, possibly even a sponsorship or a joint venture. You should certainly explore intriguing collaborations, but be sure to investigate thoroughly. Due diligence is essential now, so don't allow yourself to be rushed or pressured. If these people really want to work with you, they'll give you time to ask questions and mull it over. A move or a sale of property is also possible. In the next half-year, you might decide to relocate for work, invest in real estate, or put a home on the market.This new moon is also great for starting a savings, retirement, or long-term plan. Set some six-month financial goals, and these could bear fruit by the Aries full moon in the fall. With structured Saturn retrograde in Libra, your daily income house, until late June, you'd be wise to trim expenses and stick to a firm budget. Fortunately, Virgo is a disciplined sign, and you can do the "no-frills" thing in certain areas of your life. Start by cutting out the things that don't matter.That doesn't mean you can't have fun, though. Social Venus and adventurous Jupiter spend the month in Taurus, your entrepreneurial and wisdom-seeking ninth house. You might go back to school or sign up for a short-term course. If you have a specialized skill, explore ways to market it or profit from it. For Virgo writers or designers, this is a great month to see your byline in print (or pixels), as the ninth house also rules publishing. The week of March 11 is especially strong for trying new things or taking a chance. There will be a fortuitous "grand trine" (three-way harmonious angle) between Mars in Virgo, Jupiter in Taurus, and transformational Pluto in Capricorn. Be downright unstoppable now, and work your willpower. Refuse to take "no" for an answer. Don't be fazed by how things look on the outside or by a small delay. You have the ability to bend the universe to your desires. Ask, believe, receive.
