Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st): March may begin with agitated emotions, particularly when it comes to the workplace and overall direction of life. However, the love life and money may be just fine overall. You may find this is a time to play it safe and conservatively in the occupation, just to be safe. As March progresses, you may find that old wounds are triggered, and that people or situations from the past come back up to be addressed. The work irritations may have dissipated, becoming replaced with optimism due to the long term potential you are in a position to develop. Through the whole month, compassionate and tactful communication may be the overall theme.
Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st): Moving forward with extra energy may be how March starts, especially when it comes to the workplace, so it would be wise to allow extra time and energy for opportunities there. You may also find that your emotions and intimate life is going along smoothly, too. This is a great time to reassess where you’re going professionally, and how you can start working towards that, now. As March moves forward, you may notice that more of the same continues, but there may be challenges having to do with money and intimate relationships. A lot of this is happening simply to clear things out and to prepare for where you can build, next. This Mercury retrograde may be one of emotional and spiritual natures in general.
Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice): Dealing with emotions and spirituality may be two major themes for the first half of March, so you may find the Mercury retrograde triggers any wounds that exist there and brings them to your awareness to address and heal. You may also find it wise to be careful with your travel, and to spend money conservatively. As March progresses, you may find good things come your way through your friendships, and that this may manifest as money or intimate connections. You may also find that while the emotional and spiritual wounds are still there, they are not as intense as they were, and you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st): Tension in the workplace, tension having to do with the overall direction of life, and tension having to do with your emotions all may be the major themes of the beginning of March, so it would be wise to be cautious when dealing with any or all of those. However, you may find your intuition is stronger than normal, and that with a lot of forgiveness, compassion, and tenderness, you can achieve a lot of healing. As we get closer to Spring Equinox though, you may find that a lot of the emotional tension dissipates, but the tension is still there in the occupation. You may also find that now there is more of an emphasis having to do with wounds and the healing process. This may not be spiritual in nature though, as the stars are calling for changed behavior.
Leo (Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st): March begins with a word of caution, Leos, and that caution has to do with being careful you don’t get into accidents by rushing through things, especially in the kitchen and at work. Another word of caution has to do with making sure you don’t get food poisoning. You may also find it wise to watch your spending when you are with friends, and to be careful with their emotions. However, this is also a great time to make the necessary changes to financial investments you may have, and travel might be the remedy the doctor ordered. As March moves forward, you may find some things mellow out substantially, but that it is wise to watch your spending when you’re with your friends. You may also find that it is now time to address any healing you have been intending to make.
Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox): While the workplace and overall direction of life may be moving along rather nicely, and there is optimism in the air, you may also find that emotional and spiritual wounds and tension may be present, so it would be wise to remain cool and detached in order to juggle these. It would also be wise to continue to play things conservatively when it comes to your investments and travel. As March moves forward, you may find that a lot of the emotional and spiritual tension lessens, and that you are in a better position to manage them. This is replaced with more emphasis on the workplace, especially since you may find that if you are proactive right now, you can maneuver yourself into a position of success on down the road. The theme of this Mercury retrograde for you may have to do with clearing out the emotional and spiritual old to make way for the new.
Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st): Dealing with the unexpected and healing may be two major themes at the beginning of March, and you may find challenges and growth opportunities when it comes to the career, so it would be wise to focus on doing what you can to manage the situation. Your investments and love life may be rolling along nice and smoothly right now though, so you do have that support system to rely on. As we get closer to Spring Equinox, you may find the emotions are extra strong and optimistic, and that the stress in the workplace has eased substantially. You may sense that there is something coming, but what you are sensing is still quite a ways down the road. Simply know that your intuition is validated. Money, friendships, and the love life may all be doing very good, continuing the theme started in the beginning of the month.
Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): Other than a short temper and being accident prone, you may find March starts off on several high notes, especially having to do with the career and emotions, which includes spirituality. Mercury retrograde this month may bring light to spiritual and emotional things that need to be readdressed as a general rule of thumb. As March marches on, you may find challenges come up that have to do with the love life and circles of friends, so it would be wise to be careful in both of those areas. You may also find that the overall tension has increased through the month, but know that it will dissipate around mid-April for the most part.
Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): The current wave of optimism and expansion that is occurring will continue through the month of March, but the first two weeks put emphasis on emotional and spiritual healing that needs to be done to clear out the old to make way for the new that is coming your way based on your work. As March moves forward, you may find that it’s more of the same, but with a slight twist. Now you may discover that your groups of friends and intimate relationships roll along smoother than they were at the beginning of the month, and that you are in a position to heal internal wounds having to do with self-confidence and spirituality. This Mercury retrograde may be a more challenging one, as it may be calling your attention to emotional and spiritual wounds because they can no longer be put off.
Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Even though March is not your birth month, it may start off feeling like it, so it would be wise to ride the wave. You may find your emotions are extra strong and that there are a lot of good things happening in the career and occupation. You may also find that with a little extra work, you can make the workplace a little bit better, too. Emotionally speaking, you may find that some emotionally charged relationships in your life are rolling along nicely, whether they are staying in your life or leaving. As we get closer to Spring Equinox, you may find that almost magically a lot of those good vibes get relegated to second as other, internal wounds come to the surface to be addressed. You may also note that now it is necessary to make a lot of minor adjustments in order to achieve what came easier earlier in the month.
Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st): March may begin very interesting for the Aquarian, as you may find that the first couple of weeks require a lot of small adjustments to make things happen, so it would be wise to allow extra time to accomplish tasks and extra energy for going the extra mile. As the month moves forward though, you may find that the month just gets better and better from there. Prosperity, straight up money, and personal relationships may all be rolling along great, and only getting better. For the whole month though, you may find it wise to avoid accidents, especially in the kitchen and day to day work place. This Mercury retrograde may address your intimate relationships, but in ways that are forward thinking rather than dragging you back to the past.
Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox): Happy birthday fishes! This is your month, and I mean that this year more than in previous years, because March begins with a lot of good things happening, and those will continue through the first half of the month. While you may still find it wise to invest conservatively and to be careful when it comes to traveling, you may also find this is a great period to focus on the career, emotions, and spirituality. As March moves forward, you may find that communication becomes the central theme, and that a lot of the positive things you experienced in the beginning of the month have been replaced with a call for minor adjustments. This Mercury retrograde may be dynamic for you, as it is moving through your sign. This also means that if you are a March Pisces, especially born after March 5th, you will have Mercury retrograde in your Solar Return chart, meaning this upcoming year will be about wrapping up emotional and spiritual situations.
