As the economy continues to take its toll on each of our lives, I urge everybody to understand that the scientific laws of cause and effect are at play here. The only way for the economy to get out of the black is for an equal and opposing force to act against it. Seeing as how we didn’t end up here overnight, it is going to take some time for the negative inertia of our financial institutions to be overcome. Looking ahead, astrologically speaking, I do not see any dramatic changes until at least October. These coming months are about re-establishing a system of checks and balances on a grand scale, while doing the same in each of our individual lives, and making sure to pay attention to mind-numbing details we often attempt to avoid. To do your best, here’s a look at your astrological forecast for now through the end of March.
ARIES (March 21st - April 19th)
On March 6th and through the rest of the month, an opportunity to expand your business may come from a familiar face from the past. The challenge of the month will be to keep your aggressive tendencies at bay, for if you don’t, they will lead to needless detraction from your abilities by your competitors. Although you may be feeling vulnerable and not able to shine at the moment, group activities will be favored so get yourself out there into the public eye and you will be noticed. Just make sure not to be a hothead this month! This isn’t the time to burn too brightly.
TAURUS (April 20th – May 20th)
Let go of any financial baggage that may have been holding you back from moving forward this month. If there is an alliance that hasn’t been working or a business that has been broken, now is the time to correct its course or set it free to the universe to allow for more bounty to come in. Partnerships will tend to be rocky, but if you make the extra effort to see beyond your own interests, you will see why you have arrived where you are and how to get to where you want to be. Be careful of any sudden emotional outbursts around the 10th.
GEMINI (May 21st – June 20th)
Although you may ruffle some feathers with what you have to say this month, March will be your opportunity to say what you need to in order to get your point across and prepare a better future. You are guided by a higher truth when it comes to being able to express yourself effectively. Any investments that seem to be taking too long to show a return, including partnerships, will require your patience. You may not be reaping their benefit just yet, but stayed tuned for the coming months when things will turn around.
CANCER (June 21st – July 22nd)
Take a moment to stop and smell the roses this month in all of your financial dealings. You have been pushing yourself extremely hard to win the approval of others, but now is the time to reassess your position. Are you giving too much while a co-worker is giving too little? Perhaps, but if that is the case, you should be able to calmly reinforce your agenda as the month progresses. If you find resistance continues, then re-establishing a relationship from scratch may be the key to moving forward effectively.
LEO (July 23rd – August 22nd)
You may desire financial growth this month, but until the third week of March, you may find your desires thwarted. Any bounty that seems assured around the 11th may not go in your favor. Tolerance is the key to avoiding any needless confrontation. This year is one of major change for you, so it is best for you to look at the big picture rather than at more worrisome details. If things seem to be moving too slowly for you, never fear. Stay tuned for July and August when your future will most certainly unfold.
VIRGO (August 23rd – September 22nd)
March 6th and beyond will be a time for you to revisit any emotionally damaged relationships that may have wrecked havoc on your finances. It will also be a time of re-establishing your needs and need-nots in all partnership matters. You will find associates acting more assertive and requiring more of your time, but now is the time to decide if you want to strengthen or break those unions. Your critical eye should only be used if you're looking for an out, otherwise, see and be the softer side of Virgo.
LIBRA (September 23rd – October 22nd)
In the days that surround March 6th, you may find your mind changing regarding an important partnership. That’s okay, because in some way, this is a month to firm up your actual grounding in these relationships. What truly do you have between you? Are you seeing clearly or have you become disillusioned? Remember, it is always darkest before the dawn and to reach daylight, you must first get through the night. As the month comes to a close, you will feel more like your old self again and better be able to express yourself. Mid-April and onward, you will be back on track.
SCORPIO (October 23rd – November 21st)
The month of March is your opportunity for self-promotion. Of course, you will encounter resistance, but as a Scorpio, you are not one to ever be dissuaded from accomplishing what you want. Do your best to take advantage of the limelight in the first week of March as that will be the best time to do so. As the month comes to an close, don’t let external pressures play upon your insecurities. It may be difficult, but will prove extremely worthwhile in the long run.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22nd – December 21st)
The balance between home/family matters and your career will be demanding around the time of the full moon on March 10th. On that day, you may feel as if you can’t possibly balance the two, but realize that this feeling will be fleeting. As the month progresses, the joy you experience from family matters will offset any business issue you are having. That is, if you make sure to divert more of that inherent abundance of energy you naturally have in the direction of your home for the time being. This may make you feel as if you are stepping back and away from your work obligations, but rather, you are reprioritizing your life to better deal with each effectively for the future. This is a time of de-cluttering.
CAPRICORN (December 22nd – January 19th)
You will have a way with words this month, so use them to your benefit. While deadlines may be fast approaching, temper your expectations with moderation. In the third week of March, you may be moving in too many directions at once, so choose carefully which direction you want to continue, and then follow through with your intention in the final week. Even in the face of adversity, you can reign supreme. It is just a matter of remaining focused on your true intentions.
AQUARIUS (January 20th – February 18th)
Any partner-related matter that has made you uneasy over the last few months should be dealt with by the middle of the month, otherwise, you risk what is a completely avoidable collapse of your relationship. Remaining calm is key. As always, you have the internal challenge of needing to remain free in your business dealings while maintaining a certain amount of structure. This is what is coming into play for you throughout the month of March. Be responsible in your approach.
PISCES (February 19th – March 20th)
My apologies in advance dear Pisces as you will not be feeling as confident as you would like to in the month ahead. Self-doubt will pervade your thinking when it comes to knowing how to master you finances, but realize, this is really just an opportunity for spiritual growth. Money may not by your motive, but perhaps it should be on some level. But, isn’t the quest for money a challenge to your core integrity as a Pisces? Absolutely, but the reality is that money does make the world go round. You can either roll with it or keep your head in the clouds.
Remember, astrology doesn't dictate free will, so, the choice is yours. You can either glide with the tide or force against it and create waves. I think the tides have been pretty rough lately. I know the storm will continue to brew through October. So, what will you do?
