You can feel the heat rising this month as three planets fire into spontaneous Aries, inspiring you to take bold action. Pioneering Mars leads the parade on March 12, followed by the illuminating Sun on March 20, and alluring Venus on March 21. Your irrepressible urge for new experiences tempts you to take chances -- and you're happiest living on the cutting edge anyway. Still, it's possible to try some risky things while maintaining a backup plan so that you have a safety net to catch you if you fall.
Stabilizing Saturn's sextile with profound Pluto on March 8 -- the second in a series that began on December 26, 2012 and finishes on September 21 -- can connect you with powerful allies who help you set appropriate boundaries and maximize the return on your efforts. Overblown Jupiter's quincunx with Pluto on March 29 signals the need to simplify your plans by eliminating extraneous activities.
On March 11, the imaginative Pisces New Moon in your metaphysical 12th House of Spirituality joins Venus, adding beauty to your inner life and inspiring artistic expression. Mental Mercury's direct turn on March 17 begins to solidify ideas that have been floating around looking for a place to land.
The Sun enters fearless Aries on March 20, the Spring Equinox, marking the start of a new astrological year and amplifying your taste for adventure. It's time to face the music in relationships on March 27, with purging Pluto squaring the peace-seeking Libra Full Moon in your 7th House of Partners. Your reward for emotional honesty is more clarity about what you need and what you're willing to pay for it.
Keep in Mind this Month
Give yourself permission to be a beginner when you try something new. Making mistakes is not a valid reason to give up if you're enjoying yourself and learning along the way.
Key Dates for Aries
March 11-2: You're Number One
The inspirational Pisces New Moon on March 11 stirs dreams of love and creativity that might feel beyond your reach. But warrior Mars enters courageous Aries the next day, awakening your passion that can drive you to succeed. Use it to pursue your goals, both personal and professional; you have more to gain by applying this intensity to your own interests than by following someone else's lead. Playing second fiddle or simply trying to hold your ground may feel so confining that your frustration ignites a conflict.
SUPER NOVA DAYS
March 20-22: Lightning in a Bottle
You're filled with power and grace when the Sun's shift into confident Aries and your 1st House of Personality on March 20 is followed by charming Venus on March 21. All eyes are turned in your direction as you shine your light with charisma and passion. But watch out, because dynamic Mars hooks up with wired Uranus on March 22, shocking you with a jolt of electricity that turns a cool situation into an inferno of activity. Restlessness and rebellion could lead you to act impulsively, unsettling those around you. Still, this is also a highly inventive alignment that can be super-sexy when you experiment with new methods or unusual looks.
