Horoscope for the week beginning March 9
Tip of the week
Earlier this week a rare and auspicious double conjunction of Sun and Neptune at 13 Pisces and Mercury, Venus and Chiron at 27 Pisces graced us all with the blessings of an extra high level of creative imagination. There remains time to claim this celestial gift and weave it into your intentions for the year.
Chiron’s presence in this line-up is a reminder that the key to healing our own wounds and issues is to endeavour to heal others in like manner. It is not about healing ourselves of the wound first, but the journey or process of re-directing our focus to the knowledge and skill required to healing others. This is the paradox of Chiron.
Interestingly, on March 18, the Sun will conjunct Chiron and Mercury and Venus will also again form a conjunction due to the fact that Mercury is slowing down on the eve of its first retrograde cycle of 2018, which begins on March 23. All this in context to Spring Equinox, the Astrological New Year!
March 9 – 15
Your season fast approaches. Mercury and Venus have both already entered Aries inspiring you to action. With the Sun still in Pisces, you may be happy to just think about it for now and get acclimatize as you plan your next series of moves. Factor in Mercury turning retrograde on the heels of Equinox. That could include building some momentum prior.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)
A weave of dreams and realities continue to tease you into participation. And it appears that the dreams are in the lead. Deciphering the dreams from the fantasies may be necessary in the short-term. Either way, you are in the mood for expansion and increase. Your drive is certainly there and it is steadily receiving more fuel from your desires.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
As though peeking around the corner to peer into the future, your curiosity levels are rising. You are excited about the prospects and ready for the change. Dealing with both tests and challenges from others and outer circumstances, in general, is keeping you alert, if also a bit annoyed. Take that one slower as it will linger a little longer.
Your dreams visions are beginning to touch ground. This is activating you to take action, which includes creative work. This is probably not the time to attend to less inspiring tasks; leave them until month’s end anyway. But you will feel the urge to get things started, at least. The time is right to plan and design.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
So you were destined to take a pretty deep dive over the past several weeks. This could have occurred in a variety of ways. Purging, probing the depths, scraping the bottom and/or investigating and investing in ways you have not quite thought of before. In any case, you are now coming out of it and should experience a refreshing lightness of being.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
A chorus of dreams continues to play on your heart and mind. As if mesmerized by the enchanting sounds, you may feel suspended between fantasy and reality, at least in one aspect of your mind. This week you find yourself diving even deeper. This may amount to finding answers and/or taking deliberate actions to make your dreams reality.
Making key moves to make things happen is a central theme now. You have been focusing hard to activate a healthier and more realistic life plan. Now you are eager to take big action. Your energy levels are running high and you feel confident and fortunate. The time is right to take deliberate action to push through any inner resistance.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
A playful and imaginative mood continues yet with a definite twist starting this week. Dreaming will not be enough. You are determined to make things happen. This includes research and investigative analysis. Your aim is to get the facts. These are directly linked to actions you need to take to succeed. This focus will continue for a while.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
As if in a boat in a large cave filled with water, you have been gently and cautiously proceeding into its deeper reaches and mystery. This may have felt like a dream or perhaps something a bit more disturbing. But now you can see the light of the opening and are excited to see the full light of day again. Persevere patiently.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Accessing the full scope of your imagination power has and continues to motivate you. This may have simply manifested as a prolonged cycle of daydreaming. At worst, you have been dealing with depression. But now someone or something is snapping you out of it. This could manifest as actions to change your living environment, making it more efficient and attractive.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
Last month’s Solar Eclipse in your sign has activated new initiatives. By now, these are apparent and have entered into a deeper round of involvement. Now the next phase is brewing. It will be activated by the next New Moon in Pisces and will stimulate an appetite for knowledge, adventure and probably travel too.
As if running in a dream, as hard as you try it may feel difficult to truly advance. This paradoxical situation is about to shift. You will gain increasingly more traction. By next week, you will be even more able to realize progress. Yet, it may still take a while to feel as though you are actually on solid ground. Trust this flow and persevere faithfully.
