March Horoscope 2017 – GEMINI (and Gemini 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 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 an emotional flavour to your communication. This can be a time when you are truly able to ‘say what you mean’, especially among friends or in the workplace. 

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. 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!

As Jupiter stationed retrograde last month, there is a general energy of ‘inward expansion’ and reflections of ones 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. 

Specifically for Gemini, this can be a time for reflecting on your professional goals and ambitions especially related to your career. This is also a good time to make strides related to your career goals and your ambitions, and to work productively within your peer groups, to network, expand your circle of friends, or form new business contacts. You may feel especially innovative and suddenly have creative new ideas that solve long standing problems you have been facing.  

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. Focus on 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.  

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 Gemini, this can represent a shift related to your career or otherwise to your day-to-day routine and it also represents bringing more balance and harmony in your life. You may want to ask yourself what steps you can take to simplify 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.  

For those born in the second half of the sign, this Uranus/Jupiter opposition will be experienced more as a balancing between your personal hobbies or passions and your social obligations. It can also represent a balancing between children and your career pursuits and in general this is a good time to spend with family or to say close to home. Consider the time you spend on things that ‘bring you true joy’ in life, and whether you need to reprioritize your time to bring more fulfillment. This may also be a time when you experience new creative inspiration. 

March 20th brings the first day of Spring and the Sun will be moving into Aries! Over the course of the month, the Sun and Mercury will be moving into your 11th house. You will feel the bold energy of Aries building as we enter the spring season, but Mars in Taurus also brings a calm balance to this fiery energy. You may find your attention starts to shift towards personal goals and your intentions for the remainder of the year, just in time for the New Moon on March 27th, which 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!
