March 2019 – VIRGO
Exciting – Uranus shifts
The major transit this month occurs on March 6, when Uranus enters Taurus, where it will be until July 2026. It was in Taurus briefly in 2018, then turned retrograde and slipped back into Aries. But now it’s in Taurus until July 2026. Read the summary at the beginning of your sign.
If you have your natal chart, see where Taurus falls; that will be the area that undergoes radical, exciting change. In a solar chart, Taurus falls in your ninth house, which includes your worldview, spiritual beliefs, publishing, higher education and foreign travel and people. It’s an excellent time to study anything that prompts your development and evolution. You might be a part of a foreign exchange program or have an opportunity to live in another country. You could decide to go to law school or graduate school, and your worldview and spiritual beliefs are likely to change in some way. You embrace change.
Before that transit begins, Venus enters Aquarius on March 1, and from then until March 26, your daily work life hums along on a more even keel. Co-workers and employees are supportive of your ideas, the boss is pleased with your efforts and you become the person everyone goes to for answers. In romance, you’re attracted to someone with unusual ideas and decide to team up with this individual for a joint creative project. After Venus enters Pisces on March 26, your conscious focus turns to business and personal partnerships. From then until April 20, you and your romantic partner may have some unusual psychic experiences, and anything you do together on the creative front will be fun and go well.
Mercury turns retrograde in Pisces on March 5 and doesn’t straighten out until March 28. Read over the Mercury retro section in the introduction for the general guidelines that make this period easier to navigate. Since it occurs in your partnership area, be sure to communicate clearly with the people in your immediate environment. Double check the times and dates for any appointments you have.
On the 6th, in addition to the Uranus transit, there’s a new moon in Pisces. A new opportunity surfaces with a creative endeavor or in a partnership. But because of the retrograde, the opportunity may not surface as quickly as it would otherwise. If it involves a contract, don’t sign until after the retrograde ends on March 28.March 20 features a full moon in Libra, in your financial area. Since this full moon is at 0 degrees, there will be a second full moon in this sign, at 29 degrees, on April 19. This one brings financial news and draws your attention to your various relationships. Are they balanced? If not, what can you do to bring them more into balance?
Between March 26 and April 20, Venus move through Pisces, your opposite sign. You and your partner should enjoy a romantic and creative time together, and you’re more in tune with each other. If you’re not involved with anyone right now, then this transit should spur your creativity, particularly after Mercury turns direct on March 28. Once that happens, the planet of communication moves toward its appointment with Aries next month.
On March 31, Mars enters Gemini and your career area. From then until May 15, your professional life really picks up steam and forward thrust. This period is when you get things done and other people—friends, co-workers and your network—are instrumental in making it happen.
