The ways in which you communicate could make a critical difference in your professional life this month. Conversations can be complicated and messages muddled, lost or delayed. The primary reason for this is the backward motion of Mercury when March begins. This normally speedy and cerebral planet turned retrograde in impressionistic Pisces on February 23 and won't shift back into forward gear until March 17. While this turnabout affects everyone, it's particularly significant for you because it occurs in your 3rd House of Communication. And even after the 17th, it's important to make sure that you double check data and reconfirm critical information.
March begins with the Sun, Venus and Mars in your 3rd house, as well, which gives you a chance to make new connections, share creative ideas and show how charming and caring you can be. All three planets are in tender Pisces where you and others are likely to be highly sensitive about what you hear and say. It's wiser to gently work around delicate points than to lean on them with force since that can trigger conflict.
You may want to take the gloves off and be more direct when aggressive Mars enters fiery Aries and your 4th House of Roots on March 11. But the passion that you feel is better applied to activities that you do on your own than in battling others. The Sun and Venus will follow Mars' lead and move into Aries on March 20 and 21. These transits can light a spark that motivates you to take your career in a totally different direction, but patience and preparation are required before blasting off.
