Expanded Horoscope: Home and family matters get a boost this month, and it seems you have lady luck on your side! The new moon on February 28th may usher in a fantastic new housing opportunity, and the presence of your ruler, Jupiter, indicates that you’ll have the money you need to make your home dreams a reality. You may get help from an inheritance or parental cash gift, or perhaps you get approved for a home loan. Pluto will reach out from your income and self-worth house, further indicating that family and money issues are well-starred this month.
Starting on the very first day of the month, Mercury will move forward in your contract sector, so if you are looking to sign a lease or housing agreement, you have the go ahead! March 26th would be a fabulous day in particular, as Mercury in your housing sector will ping Jupiter in your money sector on this day!
On the other end of the spectrum, a full moon occurs on March 16th in your 10th house of career. It’s well-supported by stable Saturn, indicating that you may receive a job offer or promotion around this time. It’s also possible that you end a job or career path at this time, and if so, it seems that would be a good thing for you.
Jupiter is the second planet that will joyfully return to direct motion this month. This is extra special for you, since Jupiter is your ruler. It’s turning direct on March 6th, and after that money luck should become even stronger. You may hear good news about taxes, stock picks, spousal money, or a bonus. However, it does appear that you have a large amount of expenses as well- perhaps for a child or leisure endeavor- and this is a trend that will peak in the third week of April. If you do get good money news, best save it up in case of an emergency down the road.
Just as we have two planets going direct this month, so do we have two more planets going retrograde…doh! On March 1st, Mars moves backward through your 11th house of friendship until May 19th. If your socializing has gotten out of control lately, you may need to take a step back and slow things down. Are you fighting with a friend? Perhaps taking some space will give you the necessary perspective to resolve your issues down the line.
Mars’ retrograde in this sector may also cause you to revise and refine your big-picture plans. You know, the whole “who am I and what I am doing with my life” thing. If you’re launching a new business or project, use this time for careful thought and planning, which will pay off in spades down the line. As Ben Franklin said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” So think of Mars retrograde as a positive thing!
Saturn is another planet that will turn retrograde, and it will do so on March 2nd, lasting until mid-July. This one could be a little tough, since Saturn is currently tearing up your 12th house of secrets and closure. If you’ve been struggling with trying to let a person or situation go, Saturn’s retrograde will force you to do the dirty mental work you’ve been avoiding. You may drudge up old psychological issues, or learn of a secret you didn’t see coming. If you have an addiction, you may be forced to face it, and if you have a secret in your past, prepare for it to be illuminated. Some Sag’s may struggle with illness, or have to deal with a loved one’s illness. Saturn is asking you to clear out the cobwebs of your life, to make way for the new beginnings coming your way in the next few years.
