March 2012 Sagittarius Horoscope

You think you can

Lingering tension from recent demands at work and at home adds stress to your relationships when this month begins. Fortunately, the opposition between aggressive Mars in your 10th House of Career and the willful Sun in your 4th House of Family on March 3 can also expose differences about priorities, which is a good way to start finding solutions. Short tempers could lead to an open conflict, but your good intentions and a willingness to work toward a long-term solution to a current dilemma should be enough to get you through a difficult situation.
   
Thankfully, the instability begins to settle down when graceful Venus enters practical Taurus on March 5 and forms a cooperative sextile with altruistic Neptune on March 6. If you must be critical on March 8, when the perfectionist Virgo Full Moon hooks up with expressive Mars, do it constructively rather than saying something hurtful for no reason.

Don't be too disappointed if you fall short of your own expectations, for you'll have another chance to handle those issues that remain unresolved when communicator Mercury turns retrograde in your 5th House of Self-Expression on March 12. The Winged Messenger continues its backward flight until April 4, giving you plenty of time to review your recent progress and revamp plans as needed.

But don't wait until then to take definitive action; Mars backs into stabilizing trines with lovely Venus, opportunistic Jupiter and incisive Pluto, which are all exact on March 14. Your strength of conviction enables you to ride a tidal wave of optimism that expands your self-confidence and graces you with the power to accomplish great things. The incorrigible Aries New Moon on March 22 fires up your creativity and inspires you to express your inner child.

Keep in Mind this Month
You will invite frustration if you expect immediate results from what you initiate this month. However, combining determination with patience should lead to success.

Key Dates for Sagittarius

March 2 - 5: No Way Out
Your thoughts turn to new forms of play or a new romantic interest when cerebral Mercury enters restless Aries and your 5th House of Love and Creativity on March 2. Nevertheless, you may be stymied when you try to turn your ideas into action, because action-planet Mars forms a resistant semisquare with constrictive Saturn that same day, and opposes the Sun the next. Unfortunately, vulnerable Venus also runs into difficult aspects on March 3-4, delaying emotional and physical satisfaction. Nevertheless, you can expect a break from the past when Mercury hooks up with shocking Uranus on March 5, triggering radical ideas about love.

SUPER NOVA DAYS
March 13 - 14: Carpe Diem
Although wordy Mercury and busy Mars are both retrograde, what you start now will likely manifest once these two planets turn direct on April 4 and April 13, respectively. This optimistic outlook comes thanks to a trine from your ruling planet, Jupiter, in your 6th House of Self-Improvement to fierce Pluto in your 2nd House of Self-Worth on March 13. Receptive Venus conjuncts propitious Jupiter on March 14, combining to form an unshakable Grand Earth Trine that all but assures your ultimate success. Although this is considered a lucky aspect, it's really about your growing desire for prosperity, your ability to seize an opportunity and your determination to stick with a commitment until you reach your goals.
