March 2019 – GEMINI
There’s a major shift this month with one of the outer planets, Uranus, which enters Taurus on March 6 and begins a seven-year cycle in this sign. It will remain in this sign until July 6, 2025, when it enters Gemini. Due to a retrograde, it returns to Taurus in early November and finally enters Gemini again in late November 2026.
While Uranus transits Taurus and that area of your chart that rules the personal unconscious, a lot of internal stuff will change for you, Gemini. Issues you pushed aside over the years will surface, and you’ll have to resolve them. In doing so, you will be reclaiming power you have disowned. Uranus shakes out the dead wood in your life and makes room for the new. It doesn’t do this in the gentlest way, but if you go with the flow (and a bit of chaos!), the end result for you is excellent.
Now, back to the beginning of the month. On March 1, Venus enters Aquarius and that part of your chart that rules your worldview and spiritual beliefs, publishing, international travel, higher education and philosophy. Until March 26, then, Venus facilitates your life in all of these areas. You might, for instance, head off for some exotic port of call with a friend or your partner, or you might conduct a workshop about an esoteric topic in which you’re well-versed. If you’re unattached when this transit begins, that may change before the transit is finished. After all, during this transit, Venus is friendly to your sun, and you’re feeling more confident and attractive, and other people are attracted to you.
From March 26 to April 20, Venus transits Pisces and your career area. Fortunately, Mercury will only be retro for two days after this transit starts, and then you can take full advantage of everything Venus does for you professionally. People you work with support your ideas, and your boss is in your court. A promotion might be in the offing!
Between March 5 to 28, Mercury is retrograde in Pisces, your career area. Read over the Mercury retro section in the introductions to all three years. Follow the general guidelines that are provided, and then take specifics steps for this particular retrograde. Don’t start anything new at work. If possible, go back to older projects that you put on hold, dust them off and revise them. Communicate clearly with all co-workers, employees and bosses. Take nothing for granted. Recheck all appointments and due dates, and remember to take a deep breath whenever you feel overwhelmed!
On the 6th, the same day that Uranus enters Taurus, there’s a new moon in Pisces. In spite of the Mercury retrograde, new career opportunities surface: a promotion, a new job, a new career path altogether or new projects. If you’re self-employed, a new client or freelance project lands in your lap. Just don’t sign any contracts until after Mercury turns direct on March 28, otherwise you may be revisiting the terms.
The full moon in Libra on the 20th brings news about a creative endeavor, a romantic relationship or one of your kids. The news isn’t expected and may require an adjustment in your attitude. In romance and love, Gemini, talk about your differences and don’t make any hasty decisions.
Once Mercury turns direct again on the 28th, have a party! Go out with friends, and take in a concert or an art exhibit. Celebrate!
From March 31 to May 15, Mars transits your sign, and now you have all the forward thrust you need to get things done. You may be doing a lot of writing, traveling or networking during this period, but that’s the sort of thing you love. Just remember to carve out a little time for yourself daily and to exercise regularly.
