March 2012 Cancer Horoscope

Professional push

Making your mark in the world through your job or another public arena is among your primary goals this month. Planets are popping in your 10th House of Career, offering fresh challenges and new opportunities for getting ahead. Quicksilver Mercury fires into Aries and your 10th house on March 2, sparking new ideas and spurring you to pick up the pace at work.

The expressive Sun goes next into audacious Aries on March 20, the Vernal Equinox, followed by the New Moon, also in the 10th house, on March 22 that's bound to increase the demands of your public life. Independent Uranus' conjunction with the Aries New Moon brings unexpected changes of status or responsibility. You could be feeling restless and ready to strike out on your own.

If you suddenly realize that a radical shift in your career is what you need, take plenty of time to think it through, because rational Mercury turns retrograde on March 12 and will backtrack until April 4. This is a time to look back at your previous work experiences and re-examine your current choices more thoughtfully. You may reconnect with a colleague from your past whose insights clarify your thinking. If nothing else, redoing recent work is another potential consequence of Mercury's backward cycle.

Venus, the planet of values and self-worth, enters earthy Taurus and your 11th House of Groups on March 5. There's pleasure to be gained from participating in an organization where others share the workload. The critical Virgo Full Moon on March 8 occurs in your 3rd House of Information, reminding you to organize your ideas and communicate them more precisely.

Keep in Mind this Month
Holding your position at work takes considerable effort, but looking ahead for something more exciting fires you with fresh resolve.

Key Dates for Cancer

March 13 - 14: Winning Streak
You can turn an adversary into an ally or revive a faltering relationship on March 13, when regenerative Pluto in your 7th House of Others forms a unifying trine with optimistic Jupiter. Playful and generous pals turn an ordinary day into a party on March 14 as sweet Venus joins Jupiter to complete a supportive Grand Earth Trine with Pluto and Mars. Creative collaboration fills you with energy, while your new enthusiasm increases your ambitions and clears a path to success. The lines between work and play are likely to blur when you're having such an inspiring time with your colleagues.

March 29: Search Your Soul
Today's stressful Sun-Pluto square can undermine your trust in a boss or cost you the confidence of others. Are you on a rewarding professional path that requires increased intensity to take you to the next level, or is this where you want to get off? Look deeply within to connect with your true desires; this is the key to making the best decision.
