March 2019 – AQUARIUS
It’s a month of mixed energies for you, some great and some not so much!
On March 1, Venus enters your sign, marking the beginning of one of the most romantic and creative periods for you all year. Your head and your heart are now in complete agreement, and you feel compelled to dive into your various creative endeavors with renewed optimism and enthusiasm. Your partner is enormously attentive and goes out of the way to make you happy. The transit lasts until March 26, and the only problem with it is that Mercury is retrograde for most of it.
That said, you can make the Venus transit work best for you by doing everything you need to do before March 5, when Mercury turns retro. Sign contracts, pitch ideas, brainstorm with your muse, submit manuscripts, start new projects, move in with your lover or get married. But between March 5 and 28 do none of the above.
Read over the Mercury retro section in the introduction (pages xx–xx) and follow the general guidelines for navigating this period with less stress. Since the retro is in Pisces, in your financial area, take precautions with your money—check and double check bank and investment accounts, and safeguard passwords if you do online banking. If payments to you are delayed, pursue the person/company about where the check is.
On the 6th, two events occur: Uranus enters Taurus for its seven-year run in that sign, and there’s a new moon in Pisces. The early part of the transit may be the most jarring. Just try to go with the flow, Aquarius. But since Uranus rules your sign, this one will be significant for you.
The new moon in Pisces should bring in a new source of income (perhaps through something in the arts), but it may not happen until after Mercury turns direct. Neptune is conjunct this new moon, and Saturn is friendly to it, so the opportunities that surface have long-range effects.
The full moon in fellow air sign Libra on March 20 brings news about a publishing or academic activity or about a long distance trip you’re planning. Your artistic sense is heightened, and so is your understanding that your closest relationships are in need of greater balance. In other words, Aquarius, strive not to be so self-involved. Reach out to the people you love.
Between March 26 and April 20, Venus transits Pisces and your financial area. Except for the two days when Mercury is still retrograde in this area, Venus compensates for everything that may have gone haywire during the retro. It may bring on the opportunities promised by the new moon in Pisces earlier this month. Even if your expenses rise during this transit, so will your income. This transit also favors any creative work where imagination and intuition are essential to success.
Finally, on the 28th, Mercury turns direct again. Now move forward and embrace everything that got delayed during the retrograde. On the 31st, Mars enters fellow air sign Gemini, and between now and May 15, you’re a dervish of mental activity. Your communication skills are greatly enhanced, and you’re blogging, writing and networking. If you’re traveling or doing something else you enjoy, you’re filled with a sense of adventure and the feeling that life is now flowing your way. Mars in this area of your chart heightens your sexuality, but for you, any sexual attraction begins first in the mind, with a similarity in beliefs.
