Welcome to March. If you were born under the sign of Pisces or Aries then you can find your personality profile on your birthday at The Astrology Blog on this website. Your 12-month forecast also appears on your birthday at Harper’s Bazaar.
Aries: March 2014
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE DON’T SEE
What other people don’t see about you is the secret you have been covering up – or perhaps the role you have been playing behind the scenes. You have been wondering when you would finally be able to make a major decision and the time is coming. In fact, from March 21st, what you thought you knew in the first half of February will utterly change. This leaves you free to make an overdue choice.
THE FRIEND WITHIN THE GROUP
The friend within the group matters more now, as your gateway to the tribe as a whole. You will get what you want and need in the second half of March but not until the episode that was being written back in February is rewritten one more time. In a matter of days you will suddenly realise that what you are pursuing with these people is not just about March 2014 it is about the long-term future.
WHERE YOU BELONG
Where you belong, in terms of the people or the place, now becomes a priority. You must have been wondering why you were constantly kept waiting by people or life since last November. Now things shift so you can address the home town or homeland project. You can move or renovate. You can focus on your household or your family. You need to accelerate as the opportunity will be over by July.
YOUR FORMER, CURRENT OR POTENTIAL LOVER
Your former, current or potential lover? Your enemy, rival or opponent? The person who pushes your buttons the most near March 2nd is the main menu item until the end of July so proceed with caution. This is a highly flammable situation and you are famous for being short on patience and tolerance. Unless you want a major drama at the end of April create some peaceful tactics.
YOUR BIG RELAUNCH
You appear to have found a new medium to relaunch yourself, either online or in the real world. You may also be experimenting with how you sell yourself or package yourself, in terms of your DIY advertising or look. By the end of April you will be breaking completely new ground which is exhilarating and liberating. The only issue is how much you confront others when you do this; be aware of it.
Taurus: March 2014
YOUR TRIBE AND YOUR FRIEND
It’s really not your fault but you have been stuck with peculiar situations dating from last year; vague people; unclear websites; flakey organisations; fuzzy ideas. This has affected your social life, your group involvement and your old friendship. Fortunately the final week of March will clarify the picture for you and then you can make the epic decision that you have been yearning to make.
Your success in life is a work in progress but first you have to reverse in order to accelerate. You will be seeing February flash before your eyes in the first half of March as what you assumed about a particular person, project or company was wrong. The story is set to change and you will realise how many knowledge or communication gaps were present. Next step? An intriguing, tempting new story.
CONNECTING AND COMMUNICATING
You have been held up with your plans, ideas and projects since November, when you should have been communicating and connecting in a remarkable new way. None of this was your fault as people have been tardy with their e-mail or you have been dealing with people who are mentally overloaded and not great at communication. Fortunately your online or real-world success rolls again shortly.
YOUR DAILY WORKLOAD AND YOUR BODY
Be aware of the potential for an argument or for a prolonged period of tension which never comes to a head. Your daily workload and your relationship with your body would be at the heart of this scenario, but you can avoid it. Make a concerted effort to manage any person, organisation or situation which provokes you. Be tactical and strategic; this is not about March it is about life until July.
YOUR SUBMERGED WORLD
Your submerged world consists of work you are doing on a classified and confidential project. Alternatively it is about a big part of your time and energy which nobody can see, admire or credit you for. You will see wheels turning in the final half of March with remarkable new breakthroughs in April. This is a revolution and you know it. Try to read hearts and minds as you pursue change.
Gemini: March 2014
YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS AND AMBITIONS
The longer you have been forced to wait in January and February (and even up until the last week of March) the more you know what you want. The ridiculous delays have made you sit on your hands and think more deeply about your career, university life or non-profit goals. This helps your big judgement call in the final ten days of the month. Act any sooner than that and the story may change.
TRIPS AND HEAD TRIPS
The trips and head trips which are going to change everything were set up in February but what you heard or read then was incomplete, or actually wrong. As a result you will feel as if March is the remedy for a false start or dress rehearsal with your travel, internet, publishing, foreign or academic agenda. Correct – but prepare to be amazed by how much can happen in just four days.
You will make or save money (or cash in kind – for example through access to a house or loaned possessions) from March 7th. Nothing happened in November-February, which was dull to say the least, but you will ultimately end up richer or more abundant by July as a result of the offers, opportunities and solutions which appear from this point forward. Be proactive, though. Use the open doors.
CHILDREN AND YOUNGER PEOPLE
Take your time when you deal with matters relating to your son, daughter, godchildren or young relatives. This also applies to younger people tied to you through your job or your part-time pursuits and to any relationship which may end in parenthood. It would be very easy for a burning issue which is relatively trivial to become a bushfire. Do not add oxygen, as this could burn until July.
Welcome to the new Club Gemini where you refuse to organise your social life, old friendships and group commitments in the same old way. There is no other way to feel fully alive and thus, by April, your revolution will be complete. You cannot even compare your friends and tribes now to the way life was before 2012, but why look back? Your only karmic challenge is to be sharply aware of other people’s sensitivity and vulnerability. Not everyone likes extreme change.
Cancer: March 2014
AIR MILES AND HEAD MILES
You have been itching to make a big 2014 decision about your air miles, internet life, academic ambitions and head miles in general (publishing, self-education). Instead you have uncovered a baffling mystery from last year, yet been held up again with other people’s lack of clarity or a clunking system. Good news. From March 21st you can line up all the facts once and for all with a huge April choice.
MONEY CHANGES EVERYTHING
You’ve read your 2014 horoscope so you know you are on track to make or save a small fortune from July. Part of the process starts in March. Basically you were given an extremely changeable and unreliable story in February. Whatever you assumed will now be ditched as more facts and figures are set to arrive, or the original talking points will be pulled. The new story is a vast improvement.
INSTAGRAM, TWITTER, YOUTUBE
Your big Instagram, Twitter or YouTube renaissance has been held up from November through February because other people were not ready, or the set-up was too slow, or the universe blocked you in other ways. This has given you time to examine your first ideas about yourself and move a few pieces around on the board. Great, so now you are ready to begin. Opportunities roll from March 7th.
FLATMATES, FAMILY, TENANTS, LANDLADIES, BUILDERS
You are famous (when you get it right) for your family relationships, flatmate chemistry, property savvy and homemaking genius. All the more reason to be fully aware of the potential for conflict in March. Do not let anything snowball no matter how much the other person – or the organisation – wants a fight. The issue may also involve your home town or homeland. Handle it like Gandhi.
SUCCESS IS FREEDOM
Success is freedom and independence. Your career or university life (perhaps a non-profit role too) is your own affair these days as your willingness to break away from the old way of making it, has succeeded. Not without some rejection on either side, since 2012, but you have to admit it’s been an epic two years. Now for the next revolution. It starts in April. It’s set up now. Try to make it kind.
Leo: March 2014
YOUR MONEY, PROPERTY AND BUSINESS
Once the final piece of your financial, property, charity or business jigsaw is in place from March 21st you can start talking seriously, or signing paperwork. The numbers or facts from the first fortnight in February were incomplete or flawed, but now you can make up for lost time. There is a great escape on offer. It requires rules and regulations but this sanctuary from reality is truly tempting.
YOUR FORMER, CURRENT OR POTENTIAL PARTNER
The second half of March delivers exactly what you need to make progress with your former, current or potential partner. Before that date the story you thought you had in February will change so be prepared for new information to come in or a retraction. Your relationship with this person will shift very suddenly and with Psyche, Proserpina, Venus and Ops in the mix, a fascinating new chapter is here.
SECRETS AND INVISIBILITY
The secret project which has been in limbo for months will move forward from March 7th with big rewards by July 16th if you use every opportunity you are given and continue to work on what you started last year. Alternatively you appear to be invisible, as others are the name or face of a plan where you operate behind the scenes. Again, you have been held up, but rewards start rolling from the 7th.
COMPUTERS, PUBLISHING, MEDIA
Mars the planet of friction is going backwards in your zone of computers, the internet, publishing and the media. Be careful what you start this month, or respond to in the heat of the moment, as it will linger until July 26th. Astrology is about awareness so to avoid a potential problem near April 23rd do not set up the foundations now. Keep your communication free of heat and tension now.
TRAVEL, INTERNET, PUBLISHING, EDUCATION
March and April are the most important months of the year in terms of your travel, internet, foreign, publishing, academic and education agenda. Everything is changing around you and if you are prepared to ditch your old way of operating you could find amazing new freedom within weeks. The only issue is people or organisations which dislike change. Can your revolution be kind to them as well?
Virgo: March 2014
YOUR FORMER, CURRENT OR POTENTIAL PARTNER – THE FOG
Foggy vision about this crucial man or woman described (above) is normal on a Neptune transit. You are also being hit by peculiar astrological weather moving you backwards and forwards with this person, so don’t be fooled by the New Moon on Saturday 1st March and think this is some kind of fresh start. Stay tuned because you’ll be picked up the jigsaw pieces in the third week of March. From there, you choose. And at last you’ll have all the facts, to assist that choice.
If you have a jealous professional rival, your lover’s former (stubborn) partner or some other piece of human detritus to deal with in March, please note that your horoscope is there to be used. Don’t assume anything until you can make that final judgement call with all the details filled in, third week of March. Don’t do anything substantial near the Full Moon on 16th March unless you must. Why? Because your ruler Mercury is still Retrograde Shadow so please don’t be fooled. You won’t have the full story until the 21st.
YOUR DEAR FRIEND
Your dear friend is part of your social tribe, sports team, good cause, or other network of people. From Thursday 6th March you’ll see forward thrust here, as one solution and opportunity after another is created, either from scratch, or via a situation from 2013 which never caught fire. You’ll be bumped along with this person in stages, with a trine from Mercury your ruler to Jupiter on 26th March.
LIFESTYLE, WORKLOAD, BODY
If only your ruler Mercury was moving normally you would engage in final discussion and sign off on some truly crucial decisions about your work or university life, or your volunteer role. Same goes for your body (and the body matters quite as much as the mind to Virgo). Instead you must wait. You will finally know exactly where you stand by mid March after this dress rehearsal.
THE NEW BUDGET
The new budget is based on principles, ideas and soul yearnings, not on the actual dollars, pounds or euros. It will come into effect in April when you have finished adding up the realities, which start to appear in the final week of March. What has brought you to this point is nothing less than the most radical new direction of your life, yet why be bound by concepts which are out of date?
Libra: March 2014
HE OR SHE WHO MATTERS SO MUCH
It would be easy to mistake the person for the process. Your former, current or potential partner is less important than what is changing, and that is your approach to freedom and independence. This big shift, set for April, moves in crucial changes now. For example, the sextile from your ruler Venus to Uranus, the planet of revolution, near March 18th will certainly move things forward. You’ve been edging further and further away from the old way of loving and sharing. And you know you’re right.
PEOPLE WHO ARE AGAINST YOU
The opposition, or your opponent, is also less important than the process. It would be a mistake to think this is about his personality or her character. It’s just the universe showing you a peculiarly difficult way to be free. Liberation is the ultimate outcome and you will be amazed at how different life looks and feels after Easter. Part of the shift begins from March 20th when the Sun changes signs and you suddenly have feedback and reaction about this hideous person. This outside perspective helps you get it in proportion and an April choice waits.
March is actually spent unravelling February so I hope you read your horoscope back in January and ensured that your work, body and parenthood agenda was flexible enough to take the changes. What you assumed was final with the next generation is not. The story will change by mid March. You also need far more information (due mid March too) about your health and lifestyle, incorporating your daily workload. Jigsaw puzzles are yet to go on the board.
SUCCESS AND STATUS
You can’t see the point of Status Anxiety (thank you Alain de Botton) when Jupiter is in your zone of achievement and ambition. There are too many opportunities to snap up and too many problems to fix. You should be extremely happy with the shift in proceedings from March 6th when at last you are out of a period of limbo and moving forward with something that could be utterly huge.
BRAND, NAME, APPEARANCE
Mars is dithering around in Libra, your own sign, so what follows is about your brand, name, appearance, reputation and look. You may feel pushed or prodded by destiny but don’t assume you can just let rip and have this story finished in a week. Mars lingers for months so a quick stoush could turn into a long and protracted period of pressure. Why go there? Don’t engage. If you absolutely must buy into this situation, though, keep the stakes low and have a strategy.
Scorpio: March 2014
YOUR DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS
Your Department of Foreign Affairs is extremely good news this month and the snowball will continue to gather momentum in the most rewarding way for a further five months. This may be a neighbouring region or country, or a distinctly important American, Asian or European website. It may well tie into the academic or publishing picture for some Scorpios. In all cases, just take what’s on offer. This has been working for you all along, it’s just that nobody else was fast enough. From March, it’s game on.
HOUSE, FLAT, FAMILY, HOUSEHOLD, HOME TOWN, HOMELAND
Which item on the above list is crucial to you? This is where you are about to see the story change. I hope you read your horoscope back in January so you knew February was not the month to assume anything was fixed or final. This is a second draft of a chapter that was half-written last month. You will see why in the first two weeks of March, yet from that point your decision can be lasting.
THE NEXT GENERATION
Those born 20 years or more after you are at the heart of a saga which has already proved itself to be ridiculously flakey in February. Even as you read this you know that there is more to come. Stay tuned all the way to the third week of March. Children, godchildren, young relatives? Relationship that may end in parenthood? Youth project? Younger demographic? You just don’t have the full and final story and I am hoping that you allowed for this in your February plans. Yet from March 21st a choice is here.
Uranus in your solar Sixth House sounds painful but actually it’s just about the next stage of growth, learning and change. You have already become impressively radical in your approach to your body, no matter if you have been departing from the ancient hospital book of law or just experimenting wildly with something you are making up as you go along. The sense of freedom alone is a healing process in psychological terms. You are being supported in your quest to become a free spirit – in terms of your body.
Your work ethic is also in the change zone now and by April you will have made a milestone decision to break free of the past – not only your own past, perhaps, but also precedents and systems that were set up by others before you. Is this too audacious? Not at all. You were born to do this, according to your horoscope and some corners of your chosen field are very dusty indeed. Get a new broom. You can be at your most innovative and inventive now, moving your chosen profession or field further along.
Sagittarius: March 2014
YOUTH AND YOUNGER PEOPLE
You will take a radical approach to your children’s charity in April that firmly shuts the door on the past and the process starts now. If you have a son or daughter or a stepchild, then Easter brings an entirely new relationship with them or perhaps the decision to cut a few ties with the past. A relationship which may end in parenthood could take you on a revolutionary ride; are you ready? If your career involves youth/the young then it’s time to Oscillate Wildly. You just want to be your own person and do your own thing, but what you may not realise is that you are also showing others that there are alternatives to pursue.
HOUSE, HOME TOWN, HOUSEHOLD, FLAT, HOMELAND, FAMILY
Something on this list (above) has been a total saga in February with poor communication, mistaken advice, missing paperwork or Cadbury Flakes in human form. You are bored with it already but you are just interested enough to think of March in terms of a major shift. You’ve already been amazed by one outcome you didn’t expect. This story will go on changing so keep your paperwork flexible. The more research you amass, the more you can strike out, change or replace – to your advantage – from March 21st.
THE COMMUNICATION VORTEX
At the beginning of Dr. Who the Tardis is seen spinning through a space/time vortex. That’s where your internet is at the moment, and perhaps your book, computer, magazine, speech, song lyrics or multimedia project. You will be out of the vortex by the second half of March but until then you will be hearing the story from February change or suddenly realise you can fill a black hole at last. This makes a lasting difference to the way you are going to be read, or heard, for the rest of the year.
You will be more abundant from March 6th when Jupiter (a symbol of prosperity and growth for 2000 years) finally moves forward in the sign of Cancer. Every person must find her/his definition of abundance in a way that feels true. You may not think Wall Street has it right at all. Alternatively you may be collecting Old Masters as we speak. What you earn, own or owe now unfolds in your favour. Cash, or crucially, cash in kind (loaned possessions, an exchanged home) helps this feeling of ‘more, more, more.’
Don’t start or add to a conflict involving your friend (who is part of a wider social tribe or formal group with you). This is not just something ripped off a desk calendar of advice – it’s based on the weird patterns made by Mars, the red planet, in your Eleventh House of old friendship, group psychology and tribal behaviour. Contrary to what you may feel this month, what transpires will not be won or lost in a week. It could drag on until mid year. Strategise accordingly.
Capricorn: March 2014
THE NEW INTERNET
You are slowly moving towards a new internet life, perhaps also involving the mainstream media. It won’t happen until April, but the boring delays or frustrating flakey behaviour by people or technology is part of that story. Why must you wait so damn long? Because you don’t know enough. The choice you must reach by the first week of April is so monumental that this enforced delay is useful. You want to get rid of the muddle from 2013. Once you’re past March 21st you’ll have all the information to do just that. If you have been held up with a book, multimedia project, lecture tour, teaching schedule and so on, it will move, also from that date.
MONEY AND MISSING INFORMATION
There is missing information about the financial, charity, business or property story that came into your life in February. You thought you had a lead. Maybe you even had several leads. Nothing has come of anything and you must be wondering if it’s now time to forget the whole thing. Far from it. You were missing information all along and yet this will be in your hands by mid March.
WHEN IN DOUBT LEAVE IT OUT
When in doubt about a career, university or charity battle, just leave it out. Don’t engage. Do not add oxygen to a match so the bushfire is avoided. With Mars in Libra you are unlikely to get through March without encountering someone who is accelerating to the point where everything is too rapid, too much, too soon. You may also strike provocateurs. Strategise madly or this will drag on for yonks.
If your former husband is on the march, or you are dealing with loathsome creatures from the swamp in your working life – whatever the story – good news is coming. The giddy joke of it is, that when you have Jupiter moving forward in your zone of enemies, you actually benefit. The best example I can give you is a politician with an opponent so weak and unpopular, she becomes a PM in a landslide. That’s just one illustration of what can happen on this odd cycle. From the 6th of March, any person who has been silly enough to pit themselves against you will unknowingly become a total asset to you. Ha.
LOVE YESTERDAY, TODAY, TOMORROW
Love yesterday, today, tomorrow, benefits you from the 6th of March and if you want to be pedantic about it, set your alarm for 10.42am GMT. Between that point and July you two could take this relationship to the next level. A truce with an ex could become a friendship. A friendship with an ex could become a work partnership. A lover could become a spouse. Spouses could take you in the direction of a world tour, new home, new baby. Sketch this in using technicolour. Dream big and expect results by July.
Aquarius: March 2014
TOWARDS A NEW BUDGET
The real budget may not be decided by your government at all. It may not even be based on currency. What happens after the third week of March, when you finally have current mysteries or muddles behind you, will alter quite a lot. You have been given a way out. An escape route. It involves the money, house, business, charity, possessions or flat. You couldn’t actually price it, because how on earth do you value the cost of a sanctuary from reality? Nevertheless, given the flakey nature of what has been happening, from March 21st, it’s decision time. Say goodbye to the mess and muddle of 2013; keep it simple and streamlined.
WHAT HAPPENED TO ‘ME’?
The me issues which came onto your radar in February involved bits of the past, and perhaps questions for the future. Your role, title, image, brand, look and appearance has since gone straight off the radar because people have disappeared, you have assumed the story is over, or it looks like a door has closed. Not so. In fact you are not remotely near the end of this chapter which began 3-6 weeks ago and you will need to wait for more information by March 15.
DITCHING THE DINOSAURS
You have been ditching the dinosaurs on the internet, with publishing or media, or across other avenues for your way with words, images and ideas. A white board in a classroom or the local post office also offer potential for waving goodbye to Tyrannosaurus Rex attitudes. The past looks more ancient and irrelevant every day. Before your big April decision, though, cover yourself. What will you say when people who are more traditional, lazy or conservative ask a pertinent question? Be ready. Essentially you want to handle basic communication in a revolutionary new way, but you still have to connect; don’t leave the dinosaurs too stranded.
DUCKING AND DIVING WITH FOREIGN AFFAIRS
Keep ducking and diving with foreign affairs and you’ll escape what could be a long and drawn-out saga. This directly concerns an American, Australasian or European web connection. Alternatively you are dealing with people whose culture or beliefs are radically different to your own. In March, the heat will rise. Don’t oxygenate it. Strategise. This won’t be over in a week. It will take months. It’s really unusual to see Mars, the planet of (potential) conflict in your travel and foreign zone for such a long time. What you might normally expect to be a spat that is over in 24 hours could drag on until the middle of 2014 so duck, dive and sidestep.
YOUR INVISIBLE LIFE
Take your invisible life into even more ambitious territory. What happened in January and February changed everything and at last you are empowered to take control of what you hide, cover up or do without any recognition. That has been a long time coming but it’s not over yet. Pluto in Capricorn will empower you further if you can only try what you promised yourself you would do weeks ago. You have no idea just how much more potent you could be, if you took your resources and pumped them.
Pisces: March 2014
YOUR PROFILE AND NAME
Mercury has been sliding around in Pisces your own sign during February and will continue to do so in March. Fortunately you read your horoscope in January so you knew what to expect. Your profile or name has been at the heart of changes, rewrites, challenges or question marks. This continues for a while but by the final week of March you will know where you stand. From that point forward you can play happily with some aspect of yourself that allows you to escape reality. It’s a big fresh start for you.
YOUR APRIL REVOLUTION
Your April revolution will permanently change the way you handle money, charity, property, possessions or business. It doesn’t come out of nowhere. The process is in motion in March and the only real rule is that you test every old theory and pre-2011 notion you have. Including those other people fervently believe in – which you know to be wrong. Uranus in Aries is not really about conforming or repeating yourself. You have come a very long way in two years, finding your own financial, property or company path. You can afford to be even more unorthodox in March and April as long as it’s a win-win for other people. Yes, even the dinosaurs whose attitude towards the cash, good cause, house, apartment or business still has you shaking your head!
Jupiter turns direct on March 6th and at last the state of limbo with your children will end and you can begin to see progress. This also applies to your stepchildren. A relationship which may end in pregnancy or adoption will move forward from this point. If you channel your energy into work or charity involvements with youth, then the annoyingly stuck situation since last November will begin to shift. Finally some of you prefer to put your energy into younger siblings, nieces, nephews or godchildren. In all cases, rewards are here. The legacy you leave, spiritually, to the next generation coming after you, is assured from March to July.
TAKING THE GROUP FURTHER
What happened in the last eight weeks totally changed your view of the future with your social life, old friends or group commitment. You have been handed the keys. You did not have them last year. That was never your fault, but from this point forward, what you can take full responsibility for is your own willpower. You now have several sets of keys to turn the lock in the door and open up new vistas of potential, power and possibility. Only you can make it happen, Pisces. Once you are in control of a friendship or group project and have made the really big change, you can be in control of others things too.
YOUR HIDDEN WORLD
In February you became aware of definite possibilities involving a secret you have been concealing from other people. Alternatively you have been operating behind the scenes without any credit. Again, what you were given in February was a whole new opening sentence. So far, though, this paragraph has been left hanging. You will not finish it until the second week of March as you have not been given the full story or final verdict, but it’s not far away as you read this. Then, at last, you’ll know the score.
