March 2017 Horoscope – TAURUS (and Taurus RISING)

This month there is a concentration of energy in Pisces, with the Sun and Mercury moving through, coming into conjunction with Chiron, Neptune and the transiting South Node. This represents an overall theme of reflection and becoming more aware of your subconscious thoughts and emotions. Chiron and Neptune are transiting through the sign of Pisces over a period of several years so this is a longer term theme and represents healing of ‘old wounds’ found in the subconscious and generally brought up to a higher level of spiritual awareness. As Jupiter also stationed retrograde last month, there is also a general energy of ‘inward expansion’ and reflections of ones personal values and philosophies over the next several months.

March is a great time to focus on long-term goals, and to make strides on projects that have been underway for some time. Saturn will trine Mars on March 5th and Mars will trine North Node on March 14th. On March 9th Mars moves into your sign of Taurus, so it can bring a strong focus on your financial situation and your financial security. It might be a good idea to get an early start on your taxes.  While there is some ‘stop and go’ energy in general over the month, there are periods for making significant progress, or for your efforts over the last little while to start to pay off. Have patience stay committed to your goals! 

The Sun and Mercury will be meeting up on March 6th in Pisces bringing more clarity and also an emotional flavour to your communication. This may be a time when you are truly able to ‘say what you mean’.  

For Taurus, the energy of Pisces is in your 11th house and can bring activity to your social sphere, to engaging with your peer groups, networking or expanding your circle of friends. It can also involve the ability to innovate and creatively solve problems with new ideas.  

The full moon on March 12th in Virgo can bring personal projects to completion and can also bring resolution to health issues if they are present. Be careful however about ‘heightened emotions’ typically experienced during the full moon, as it can bring up frustration or self judgement if you feel like you have not made the progress that you ‘should’ have made by this point. Get ahead of this potential pitfall by working towards your objectives as early as possible in the month, and remember that real progress takes time. Have compassion for yourself.

Venus is in Retrograde this month so be mindful of any tendencies to be possessive or jealous in your relationships. This is also a time when ‘past loves’ can come back into the picture. This is a very good time for forgiveness and for moving on from past relationships where you may be carrying some residual ‘baggage’. Focus on compassion and on on putting yourself first. Honest feelings can come up again around March 25th, or you may suddenly see your relationships more clearly when the Sun will come into conjunction with Venus in its retrograde cycle.  

There is a theme overall in 2017 being brought by an opposition between Uranus and Jupiter that will occur 3 times this year and occurs for the second time on March 4th. For Taurus, this can represent a shift related to your career or otherwise to your day-to-day routine that can bring more balance and harmony in your life. You may want to ask yourself what steps you can take to simplify your life in order to enable more peace of mind, and this can involve examining your priorities or possibly cutting things away from your schedule to make more space. Uranus in the sign of Aries also represents personal changes so this can be a great time to resurrect any New Year’s resolutions that have fallen out of focus, especially those related to your diet, healthcare or exercise habits and in general how you manage stress in your life.  

This is also a good time to focus on your creative pursuits and hobbies and things that truly bring you joy. 

March 20th brings the first day of Spring and the Sun will be moving into fiery Aries. Mars in Taurus brings a calm balance to this fiery energy and a more grounded, practical focus. The New Moon on March 27th also occurs in Aries! This is a great time to make New Moon wishes for new beginnings, personal changes, personal goals and building confidence.  

Best of Luck!
