Cancer Horoscope: March 2013

Break Out of Your Shell

Although social activities are keeping you busy, you feel safe in your cozy little world for the first part of the month. Even if a personal or professional relationship is stressful, you have a chance now to reestablish equilibrium while addressing critical issues.

On March 8, Saturn's stabilizing sextile to resolute Pluto in your 7th House of Others empowers you to solve a difficult relationship problem if both parties are willing to show up with authenticity. Additionally, harmonious Pluto's aspects to the Sun on March 1, amicable Venus on March 6 and interactive Mercury on March 7 create additional opportunities to make enduring connections with someone who is willing to be your mentor.

However, the clairvoyant Pisces New Moon on March 11 is a turning point that marks the beginning of a fresh cycle of outward, rather than inward, movement and exploration. This contemplative New Moon in your 9th House of Future Vision -- as noted by seven planets in emotional Pisces -- is your chance to look ahead with optimism while still holding on to the security of your past.

On March 12, courageous Mars fires into spontaneous Aries and your 10th House of Public Responsibility, pushing you to get ahead. Mercury ends its retrograde phase in your 9th House of Big Ideas on March 17, as ideas that have been on hold begin to come together.

You may act uncharacteristically reckless when the Sun and Venus shift into impatient Aries on March 20-21, followed by a shocking Mars-Uranus conjunction on March 22. Your life is on the move again, yet the Libra Full Moon on March 27 gently reminds you that progress does not come without compromise.

Keep in Mind this Month

Make smart use of the free time you have. You want to be well rested and well prepared when circumstances demand all your attention.

Key Dates for Cancer


March 20-23: Claim Your Power

Don't hide your true intentions right now, even if it's scary to take a chance by revealing what you want. The Sun's shift into headstrong Aries on March 20 marks the Spring Equinox and the beginning of the astrological New Year, spurring you to take professional risks. Good-natured Venus joins the Sun, Mars and Uranus in your 10th House of Career on March 21, enabling you to turn up the charm and present a more dynamic side of your personality at work, even while under stress. However, being friendly won't prevent you from insisting on getting your way when fearless Mars conjuncts rebellious Uranus on March 22.

March 31: In the Name of Love

You may find yourself swimming in deep waters as Venus and the Sun both square formidable Pluto. You might need to defend your feelings or apologize for overstepping your limits. Thankfully, support from generous Jupiter indicates that your honorable intentions and honest approach can tip the odds in your favor.
