Scorpio Horoscope: March 2013

Play It Forward

The first part of March has a stabilizing quality that makes it an ideal time to solidify your plans before you set them into motion. Although several aspects to pragmatic Saturn in resourceful Scorpio focus your attention on serious matters, you're also feeling restless with six planets in your 5th House of Fun until March 12, when action-planet Mars leads the planetary parade into your 6th House of Work.

You turn a creative idea into a real project when the Sun, valuable Venus and clever Mercury trine Saturn and sextile Pluto on March 1, 6 and 7, respectively. Heavyweight Saturn sextiles insightful Pluto in your 3rd House of Communication on March 8, deepening your convictions and providing you with the skills to get your ideas across in a simple and straightforward manner.

The fanciful Pisces New Moon on March 11 falls in your 5th House of Self-Expression, unleashing your playful and romantic spirit and planting a seed of joy in your heart. Even as you push into new territory, however, you continue to review recent experiences, rework your strategies and reconsider your options.

Thankfully, forward progress is just around the corner when messenger Mercury turns direct on March 17, ending its three-week retrograde cycle that began February 23. The Sun's entry into impetuous Aries and your 6th House of Details on March 20 marks the Spring Equinox, and is another reminder that this is a time for new beginnings.

Nevertheless, you must temper your eagerness with reason as overconfident Jupiter forms crunchy quincunxes with Saturn and Pluto on March 23 and March 29, encouraging you to use extreme measures to get what you want.

Keep in Mind this Month

Problems happen even when things are looking good. Don't get discouraged; just be prepared to handle issues as they surface with a healthy sense of humor.

Key Dates for Scorpio

March 6-8: Speak Your Truth

You reconnect with your deepest desires when magnetic Venus in your 5th House of Love and Creativity sextiles dark Pluto and unequivocal Saturn on March 6. Loquacious Mercury joins Venus later in the day, enabling you to turn on the charm so you can approach a difficult subject without putting someone off. On March 7, Mercury takes its turn to aspect Pluto and Saturn, giving you an irrefutable air of authority. Others are intently tuned in to what you might say because they believe that you know what you're talking about.

March 25-27: On the Edge

You may be very busy now, making it difficult to keep up with all of your obligations.

Try a new strategy to restore balance at work on March 27, when the objective Libra Full Moon in your karmic 12th House of Spirituality opposes agreeable Venus and rebellious Uranus.
