March 2012 Virgo Horoscope

Time is on your side

Pushy partners, both personal and professional, and a crisis-driven atmosphere motivate you to move faster this month. An uncharacteristic impulse to leap before you look may arise when your curious ruling planet, Mercury, zips into impetuous Aries on March 2.

However, analytical Mercury turns retrograde on March 12 and continues moving backward until April 4, marking a period when you'd be wise to adopt a more leisurely pace. Errors tend to pile up during this period, as do complications with details and communications. Carefully tying up loose ends and tightening up inefficient systems instead of going into overdrive now will make you more productive in the long.

Strong emotions surface with the Full Moon in your normally logical sign on March 8. Warrior Mars' proximity to the Moon may propel you to take on new tasks or even explode with anger. But before you impulsively embark on a fresh project or boil over with frustration, reflect on your past experiences; you will probably find a solution to your problem.

You find new resources of power and creativity to support your ambitions when expansive Jupiter trines perceptive Pluto on March 13. This enterprising alignment, which previously occurred on July 7 and Oct. 28, 2010, is now part of a Grand Earth Trine with active Mars in your sign, bringing patience and persuasiveness to help you reach your goals.

The Sun's entry into headstrong Aries on March 20 is the Spring Equinox, which initiates a fresh cycle of enthusiasm in your 8th House of Deep Sharing. On March 22, the Aries New Moon conjunct shocking Uranus could shake up your relationships with radically different ideas and unexpected events.

Keep in Mind this Month
The bolder your plan, the more measured you need to be in executing it. Crises become opportunities when you are able to maintain your composure.

Key Dates for Virgo

SUPER NOVA DAYS
March 13 - 14: Adult Entertainment
You handle delicate matters gracefully when an insightful Venus-Pluto trine on March 13 facilitates deep conversations and the capacity to heal damaged alliances. You then get to reap the rewards of your passion and persistence on March 14 as sexy Venus joins exuberant Jupiter and both make supportive trines to dynamic Mars. An almost perfect balance of playfulness and practicality is a great setup for a creative project, a party, or an intimate dinner for two.

March 24: Call of the Wild
Don't even bother trying to keep a lid on rapidly shifting circumstances today. A volcanic Sun-Uranus conjunction in your 8th House of Intimacy and Transformation is a wake-up call to bring your partnerships up to date instead of relying on the old rules that kept them together. A provocative person pushing your buttons or your own itch for freedom can leave you feeling uncertain. If you're willing to innovate, however, you can reinvigorate a present union -- or find an exciting new one.
