March 2019 – TAURUS
The Uranian shift
There’s a lot going on this month, and it may be a wild ride! Let’s take a look first at the planet Uranus. On the 6th, the planet of sudden, unexpected change, leaves Aries and enters Taurus. It did the same thing in 2018, but was in Taurus only for a few months before it turned retrograde. Now it will be in Taurus until July 7, 2025. Then in September of that year it will turn retrograde, slip back into Taurus in November and emerge finally into Gemini in April 2026.
During this transit, any area of your life where you are rigid and habitual will change. Relationships that no longer serve your best interest will fall out of your experience. If you’ve been working in a profession or at a job that you dislike, then you may lose that job, freeing you to do something you love. You get the idea. Uranus cleans out the dead wood, making room for the new and unknown.
On March 1, Venus enters Aquarius and your career area and leaves on March 26. This is a jump-up-and-down kind of transit because Venus brings greater ease to all your professional matters. Working relationships function more smoothly, your relationship with your boss is pain free and others see you as the person with answers. Between March 26 and April 20, Venus transits Pisces, and now you can sit back and chill with your friends, become reacquainted with your muse and generally enjoy yourself. If a romance starts during this transit, it may be with someone you meet through friends.
The one drawback is that Mercury turns retro in Pisces on the 5th and doesn’t turn direct again until the 28th. Look over the guidelines in the introduction for navigating a retrograde more successfully and remember that by following the rule of the three Rs—revise, review and reconsider—you use the retrograde energy the way it’s intended to be used. Since this one occurs in that area of your life that governs friends, publicity, wishes and dreams, people you haven’t seen in a long time may resurface. Publicity campaigns may be delayed or encounter problems. You might have a falling out with a friend.
On the 6th, the same day that Uranus enters Taurus, there’s a new moon in Pisces. In spite of Mercury’s antics, this moon should bring in plenty of opportunities to forge new friendships. It’s also likely that you’ll have a chance to work on a new creative endeavor. Your intuition and imagination are hand-in-hand with this new moon.
March 20 brings a full moon in Libra that highlights your daily work routine and the way you maintain your health on a daily basis. There could be news concerning one or both of these areas. In your relationships with co-workers, you become more aware of a need for balance and harmony and realize it’s just not worthwhile to argue with anyone.
Mercury turns direct on the 28th in Pisces, and now you can move forward with everything that was delayed and do so with confidence!
Between March 31 and May 15, Mars transits Gemini and your financial area, and the pursuit for higher income is on! You’ll be making more contacts during this transit, and any of them could provide you with opportunities to increase your income.
