March 2012 Virgo Love Horoscope

Try a little tenderness

Romance could be rocking for you this month, but doing it gently is the key to making this magic happen. March starts with the Sun in sensitive Pisces and your 7th House of Partners, which is likely to increase interpersonal activity in your life.

The challenge, though, is to control your comments because verbal Mercury, your ruling planet, blasts into sharp-edged Aries on March 2, provoking you to speak very directly with others. The truth is a good thing, but it needs to be shared with tenderness if you want to maintain harmony in your current alliance or make positive steps toward a new one.

In fact, Mercury turns retrograde on March 12, beginning a three-week backward cycle that is better for cleaning up the past than pushing ahead at high speed. This might be a critical time for fixing partnership problems, but trying to rush the process is unlikely to help.

The Sun's shift into bold Aries on March 19 occurs in your 8th House of Intimacy, raising the stakes in the game of love. You're not usually a gambler, but you might be willing to take some chances now. Attracting an exciting or pushy individual is possible. Competition rears its head in a key connection, so keeping your humor is very important now.

The ride can get wild when the Sun joins volatile Uranus on March 24, which could provoke you to make a sudden move or be with someone who may suddenly be less reliable and reasonable than in the past.
