March 2012 Aquarius Horoscope

Fools rush in

Money issues are on your plate this month with the Sun in your 2nd House of Personal Resources -- and its opposition to insistent Mars in your 8th House of Shared Resources on March 3 means that others are involved in your financial picture, too. Mars in introspective Virgo is retrograde, turning your energy inward as you seek solutions through logical analysis rather than overt action. The cautious Virgo Full Moon is conjunct action-planet Mars on March 8 in your regenerative 8th House, but even if you know your next move, you might not be able to put your plan into motion yet.

Someone comes to your rescue or you receive sound advice on March 13-14, when Mars forms a practical Grand Earth Trine with sweet Venus, magnanimous Jupiter and insightful Pluto. But everything takes longer than you wish because your everyday life is so busy, with mischievous Mercury turning retrograde in your 3rd House of Immediate Environment on March 12. Because of its backward turn, the trickster planet's conjunction to erratic Uranus on March 5 is repeated on March 18, bringing detours and unexpected distractions that can surprise and even shock you with their suddenness.

Your life grows hectic on the Spring Equinox, the day the Sun shifts into impetuous Aries and your busy 3rd house on March 20. You can find yourself running around in circles without getting a lot done. The excitable Aries New Moon on March 22 conjuncts cerebral Mercury and high-strung Uranus in your 3rd house, generating radical ideas that can take you on a wild goose chase unless you remember to think before you act.

Keep in Mind this Month
There's so much coming at you from many directions that it's important to find time to relax and soothe your overactive nerves.

Key Dates for Aquarius

March 20 - 24: Simple Twist of Fate
The restless Aries New Moon on March 22 is a turning point, though you're already eager to hit the road and try something new on March 20, when the Sun enters bold Aries and your 3rd House of Short Trips. This is less about altering the direction of your life than it is about making the most of the moment, even if that involves taking a risk. Communicative Mercury backs into intuitive Pisces on March 23, confusing your interactions because words no longer convey the subtleties of current events. The Sun's conjunction with surprising Uranus on March 24 indicates that an unexpected break in your routine can turn out to be quite the memorable experience.

March 28-31: Give It Time
Don't let the transformative Saturn-Pluto quintile on March 28 slip by unnoticed. Use this creative moment to shape your future by taking stock of your current resources and skills, and then setting clear intentions for what you want. An intense Sun-Pluto square on March 29 requires you to overcome resistance -- either someone working against you or just your own fears playing tricks on you. Nevertheless, it's hard to know how forceful you should be in your approach because macho Mars forms an uncertain quincunx to unruly Uranus on March 31. Instead of pushing for final resolution now, stay on your toes but allow events to unfold naturally.
