March is one intense month astrologically, with Venus returning home to Taurus, the Sun combining with Neptune, Mercury Retrograding into Aquarius, and Mars in a potentially destructive alliance with Pluto.

And as the Sun enters your sign on the 19th followed by a New Moon on the 24th, you’ll be in your element and ready for a fresh start. With sobering Saturn and Mars in your social sector from week three, it can be time to make a positive difference in your community.

From March 21st, an ambitious streak can see you embracing more responsibility.
Gemini 22 May – 21 June

As Saturn your ruler moves in for a temporary stay, you’ll be keen to get finances organised.
Aquarius 21 January – 19 February
