March Horoscope 2017 – ARIES (and Aries RISING)

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 bringing positive advances to your long-term endeavours and related to your unique personal strengths!  While there is some ‘stop and go’ energy during other times in the month, you can start to sense that your ongoing efforts are paying off. Have patience stay committed to what you want to achieve! 

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 can be a time when you are truly able to ‘say what you mean‘, or when your true emotions are made known whether you want them to be or not. This is also a good time to stand up for your personal values.  

The full moon on March 12th in Virgo brings personal projects to completion and can bring resolution to health issues if they are present. Be careful about ‘heightened emotions’, typically experienced during the full moon and the potential for brewing conflicts to come to a head. The Virgo full moon 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. 

Especially for Aries, this full moon can bring frustration, or drama, or possibly resolution related to issues in personal and romantic relationships.  

As Jupiter stationed retrograde last month, there is a general energy of ‘inward expansion’ and reflection of your personal values and philosophies over the next several months.  There is also a more focused theme in March of inner reflection and gaining awareness this month of your inner thoughts, emotions and ‘pressure points’ or old wounds that can now be reconciled. Take some time for reflection and allow yourself to let go of any burdens that are coming in the way of your own inner peace.

Venus in Retrograde this month brings challenges to your experience of love, relationships, finances as well as self image. Troubles in your relationships may seem more apparent during this time and ‘past loves’ can come back into the picture. This is a very good time for forgiveness and for moving on from relationships that no longer serve a positive purpose in your life. The effect of Venus retrograde on Aries is especially focused on the area of personal and romantic relationships.  This is a time to have patience and be mindful of your impulses because they might be drawing you towards something during retrograde that you will regret later.  Focus on having compassion and on on putting yourself first during this time and avoid being pulled into ‘drama’. Feelings can be expressed honestly around March 25th, or you may suddenly see your relationships more clearly when the Sun will come into conjunction with Venus in this retrograde cycle.  From a business perspective, this may be a time for unwinding from financial engagements that are ‘meant to end’ or which are no longer in line with your goals.  

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 those born in the first half of the sign (or who have 0-14 degrees of Aries rising), this can represent bringing more balance between your personal goals and priorities and your relationship and it can represent making changes to your health routines. Uranus in the sign of Aries brings a lot of support for making personal changes. This can be a great time to resurrect any New Year’s resolutions that have fallen out of focus.  

For those born in the second half of Aries (or who have 15-29 degrees of Aries rising), it 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. Think about where you can ‘simplify’.

March 20th brings the first day of Spring and the Sun will be moving into Aries and the New Moon on March 27th also will occur 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!
