The first spring month of this year is, without a doubt, one of the most intense of 2020. Mercury goes retrograde for several days, Mars reactivates the heavy planets in Capricorn, Saturn changes its sign, and Venus moves from a debilitated position to one that represents an essential dignity. But let’s take a closer look at how these transits affect us:
On or around March 3, Venus in Aries adheres to a tense aspect of square with Saturn in Capricorn, which means that relationships where there are no common goals for growth together could experience emotional distance. Therefore, it is important that, at the beginning of this month, we make some changes in our attitude towards relationships, especially if we want to cultivate certain emotional or professional relationships, which bring us all sorts of satisfactions.
From March 4 onwards, Mercury begins to retrograde through Aquarius, which means that we would like to pay more attention to future/long-term plans, as well as to the people we work with to achieve them. Problems may arise with regard to projects or it may be more difficult for us to communicate with those we conduct business with. Therefore, it is very important that we do not overlook changes in our/their behavior, nor any other relational issues we may encounter down the road.
After March 5, Venus enters the sign of its nocturnal domicile, Taurus. If during its stay in the previous sign, which represents her diurnal exile, we encountered challenges in compromising for the sake of our relationships with others, this time we have a practical vision, which is aware of the benefits of a conciliatory attitude towards others. On the other hand, this transit is one in which we encounter opportunities to forge relationships that may prove lucrative in the future.
On or around March 8, we feel the effects of two extremely powerful conjunctions: on the one hand, there is the one between the Sun and Neptune, which enhances our creativity and romantic side, and on the other hand, we feel the potentially disruptive effect of the conjunction between Venus and Uranus, which means we have to prepare for surprises in relationships. Whether they are pleasant or less so depends only on how our relationships with others currently are.
From March 10 onwards, Mercury moves again directly through the sign of Aquarius, indicating that we are able to communicate more easily with people with whom we run business or with whom we are involved in certain projects. We may also find that ideas come more easily to our minds and that we find rapid solutions to the potential challenges that arise along the path toward our long-term plans. If they have stalled lately, we manage to bring them back on the right track.
On or around March 20, Mars adheres to a conjunction with Saturn in the sign of Capricorn, which makes the beginning of the third decade of this month the most intense period of the the year so far. Mars is in detriment in Capricorn, and Saturn is in its domicile in this sign, and since Pluto and Jupiter are also in this sign, we can expect just about everything from this astral project. The general idea would be that the stars are preparing us for 180-degree changes at every level of our lives.
From March 22 onwards, Saturn temporarily moves into the sign of the Aquarius, its second domicile, this time the diurnal one. What the planet of shortages, maturation, and obstacles is trying to teach us is that all these challenges should be regarded as opportunities to find our true self, something that distinguishes us from everyone around. Against the background of this transit, we must celebrate what makes us different and get involved in projects that highlight our originality.
On or around March 23, Mars forms a conjunction with Pluto in the sign of Capricorn, which recreate the strong influence of the conjunction between the same Mars and Saturn, perfect while the latter was transitinf in said sign. So, if we were brought close to a change that we failed to embrace, fate might take the reins today and take the first step for us toward the unknown. It is important to welcome everything that’s in store for us, because otherwise we may find it hard to adjust.
On or around March 28, the influence of the harmonious aspect of trine drawn by Venus in Taurus to Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn is felt, which means that we are preparing for an end of the month that is highly productive, especially if we operate within partnerships. It is therefore a good time to negotiate and strike collaborations, but also to start projects in association with other people. We may reap the fruits of our labour sooner than expected.
From March 30 onwards, Mars moves through the sign of Aquarius, which means that we are more assertive in the social department, but also in relation to projects in which we are involved with regard to plans for the future that we are struggling to translate into practive. We may also show a more courageous attitude when it comes to approaching people who might invest in our business ideas. We are confident in what we can achieve and inspire others with our enthusiasm.
On or around March 31, that is, on the last day of the month, a conjunction takes place between Mars and Saturn, this time in the sign of Aquarius. Although the first planet does not retain its dignity in this sign, the fact that both stars are almost on the cusp of said sign means that they are in a position that gives them immense power. However, we may feel less triggered and pressured to take action, which allows us to actively consolidate any changes that may have occurred the last days.
As is evident from the paragraphs above, a very demanding first month of spring awaits us. Towards the end of this month, the transit of Mars through Capricorn reaches the heavy planets located in this sign at this time, which may lead to separations, transformations, or changes that we might perceive as quite painful, at least initially. The stars are preparing us for something new and better.
