The big astrological news for this month is for the first time since Jupiter entered Scorpio in October last year this benevolent planet goes retrograde on the 9th. This will continue until mid-July causing shifts in the political arena in regards to hidden secrets in the corporate world. On the 17th there is a New Moon at 26 degrees in Pisces “A man in armour, fully equipped and bearing a shield” it is in the domain of ‘security’ which symbolises a man in power making a major decisions regarding the security of one’s nation. This particular New Moon transits the USA 4th house indicating a need to react strongly to any threats from outside their region. On the 31st we have a Full moon in Libra in the degree of ‘seclusion’ . This amplifies a tribal reaction to political events in the world especially as the trickster of the Gods Mercury traveling backwards from the 23rd also opposes this Full Moon to add an unpredictable energy to the Western world.
There is an intensity to the month ahead as Mercury passes through your sign and then on the 23rd moves backwards causing delays and frustrations towards the end of the month.

The energy of the planet Jupiter which is transiting in another water sign like yourself goes retrograde from the 9th in your solar 5th house.

Career decisions will take up a majority of the theme of March as you seek to improve your present circumstances.

Your opposite sign of Pisces is the dominating zodiac sign in March which means that ‘other people’ are placing a lot of faith in your direction.

Venus is in a dance between two signs of the zodiac this month one being Aries your polarity point igniting relationships and communication in regard to your emotional needs.

Scorpio is a water element sign and bases a lot of its decisions on how it feels, there is so much activity with the planets in the water signs that you could feel a bit overwhelmed in March. However if you seek the core of your feelings and inner awareness, you could find yourself being extremely psychic in your perceptions. This could be in relation to how others feel and therefore be able to give others some good spiritual and emotional guidance.
There is a lot of mutable energy around in March, this tends to manifest as changeable emotions and attitudes with others and yourself. The key is to be adaptable to this and to learn to respect your own personal boundaries. This is also a month to start a new spiritual practice or even healthy eating diet with the right motivation in place.
The planets Mars and Saturn link up at the end of the month configuring into a powerful surge of energy and determination in getting things done.

Your two rulers Saturn and Uranus are moving direct during the next four weeks which in turn brings out your famous optimistic attitude to life.

For the majority of the fish this is your birthday month and that means a time to look back at the last twelve months and reflect on your progress.
