As we settle into the energy left for us by last week’s Full Moon in Libra and Virgo, we are ushered into a flow that is somewhat jostling, pushing us to be a better version of ourselves. There are several major cosmic transitions that occur this week, adding to an energetic shift that happens every time the month changes.
On Tuesday afternoon, March 26, 2019, Venus, the planet of of love, Justice, and Beauty will leave independent and thought-provoking Aquarius and enter sensual and creative Pisces until April 20, 2019. Venus in Pisces is a magical transit for lovers, artists, and parents as it induces a feeling of soul connection to our work, our relationships, and our higher selves. However, it’s important to be mindful that Pisces can be very sensitive. The Aries Sun May provoke this in negative ways if we are not mindful of others feelings when we voice are bold opinions. Nonetheless, this is a beautiful time to connect with those you love behind the scenes. With Mercury now direct in its Retrograde shadow zone for most of this transit, it would be wise to use this time to tune in to each other, you won’t regret it.
Mercury has been Retrograde since March 5, 2019. Mercury will station direct on Thursday morning, March 28, 2019. However, Mercury will not leave its Retrograde shadow zone until April 17, 2019, when Mercury leaves Pisces and enters Aries until May 20, 2019. It’s important to understand certain delays may still need some working through. Dedication, patience, and focus is required to be successful during this transit, as Pisces is subjective to get lost sometimes in their mental and emotional illusions.
If you want to make the most out of this transit, you need one or two clear goals. If you find yourself project hopping, you need to refocus. Your mantra for the next few weeks is “I consciously move forward with clear, focused, and single-minded intention.” There is no room for reckless distractions or unconscious errors. Stay grounded!
On Sunday, March 31, 2019, Mars, the planet of action and focused energy, leaves Taurus and enters Gemini until May 15. For the last eight weeks, Mars in Taurus has inspired an energy of consistency, perseverance, and stubbornness to get things done. A strong motivating force during this transit has been our personal finances. Taurus rules the second house of personal assets and resources, inspiring us to make decisions in the best interest of our bank account and morals. However, with Mars moving into Gemini shortly after Midnight on Sunday, our actions are now governed by our need to expand and express mental thought. Many of us may suddenly find the courage to start putting a new idea or project out there, as Taurus’s dedication helped us shape it into form. However, be cautious as Mars in Gemini is somewhat scattered energy, it’s easy to get lost in thought and translation. Gemini is the first air sign of the Zodiac, and it has trouble sometimes staying focused on one thing for too long if it loses interest. The best way to use this energy is to focus on one or two things that you LOVE and are excited about doing, and follow them through to completion. Gemini is a social sign, so it would be beneficial to get other people involved. Share your ideas with people you trust and listen keenly to the advice you receive.

Aries, with the Sun beginning it’s transit through your 1st house of self in Aries, this may be a period of rebirth for you. Long-standing actions, dreams, and goals may begin to stir around a bit, inspiring you to slowly move back into the swing of your everyday busy life. However, Mercury and (soon Venus) are still in your 12th house of closure and ending in Pisces, causing you to do more soul searching and behind-the-scenes emotional healing to get you prepared for the next season of your life. Use this week’s Last Quarter Moon in Capricorn to finish up any outstanding projects dealing with the public. You’ll want a clear slate for the New Moon in Aries next week.
Taurus, with Mars on its last week in your 1st house of self in Taurus, you may be asking yourself how you got where you are and where you go from here. But enjoy this uncertainty. Something beautiful and unforeseen is on the horizon, and it requires you to trust your gut. On Tuesday, March 26, 2019, Venus enters Pisces, your 11th house of friendships and groups, until April 17, 2019. This three week transit is prime time for establishing new and old connections that can help move you socially in the right direction. As much as you would like to believe you can go at it alone, you need others sometimes. Use this transit as a learning lesson. You can lean on people!
Gemini, for a long time now you’ve felt like you were cast aside and set into the shadows. It’s been a long six months believing nobody was listening to you or hearing you, but now they are! With the Aries Sun now in your 11th house of groups and friends, all eyes are on YOU! International or large national corporations or organizations may suddenly want your personal expertise or opinion on a matter that is near and dear to your heart Gemini. Mars leaving your 12th house of Taurus on Saturday and entering your 1st house of self early Sunday morning is exactly what you need to move forward in a new direction. Just make sure that you are staying level-headed and not saying yes to every “amazing” opportunity that comes your way. Flush it out, make sure you aren’t being used or exposed beyond your level of reason or morale.
Cancer, it’s been an emotional six weeks for you as Pisces lit up our 9th house of mental exploration and travel. You probably spent a lot of time cuddling up to people and thoughts that you love, while at the same time battling for your freedom. But don’t worry about what you had to let go of Cancer, now it’s time to focus on where you want to go! With the Aries Sun heating up your 10th house of career, it’s time to focus on your own personal objectives and career goals, especially when it comes to shining bright in the public eye! One thing you should watch for Cancer is your inflated ego. You tend to seesaw between being viciously self-confident, and desperately insecure, and this transit will do everything to challenge that polarity. Be honest about who you are when it comes to building your public image and reputation. The last thing you want to do is come off insecure, or worst yet, INSINCERE.
Leo, there’s so much you want to do and now seems like the perfect time to do it: but do you really know what you want, or are you still trying to figure it out? The first few weeks of Aries season can be somewhat brutal if your still seesawing between the “do it now” and “play it safe” mentality of Aries and Pisces. If you feel unsure, let it play out. Next week is more of a seeding time for you anyway. Mercury’s exit out of its reversed Retrograde motion on Thursday morning, March 28, 2019, will be pivotal for you as you can finally get a grasp of the information you need to handle your financial situation once and for all. This may come as a job opportunity, an influx of money that you should've received back in the day, or a significant investment from someone you love and trust, and who loves and believes in you. However it comes, accept it. You deserve something good.
Virgo, the past few months have been big for you, and it seems like you’ve been on an uphill climb for weeks. But remember everything is uncertain, especially with the Aries Sun now in your 5th house of pleasure, fame, and creativity. Your emotions have the tendency to surprise you this week, just when you think you’ve got them under control. Listen to this sudden burst of hysteria or feelings of self-defeat (even optimism). You may be trying to talk yourself out of or into something you know just isn’t true. Areas of passion or hobby could bring you joy or depression. If you can’t make time for what you want to do, incorporate what you want to do into what you are already doing. It’s important to remember this week that everything has seasons, and unfortunately, every season does NOT have to be about you.
Libra, you’ve got big plans lingering in your mind. But be honest with yourself, is this what you really want or is this something you feel you have to do? Establishing the difference between guilt and shame, and joy and inspiration is pivotal for your physical and material success this month. With Mercury leaving its Retrograde station, and moving direct in your 6th house of Pisces, you could be in for a fresh start and project in terms of your career. Something you’ve been working on is gaining traction, and attention, and you need to be open to the success and material wealth this journey can bring. But with Venus meeting up with Mercury in your 6th house of Pisces on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, you need to be honest about what you can handle. Taking on multiple responsibilities may feel fun and challenging, but be practical with yourself. Do not bite off more than you can chew. In your case, less is more. Tread lightly!
Scorpio, you are in a season of building, and much of this is related to your family history, debts, and material wealth/investments. With the Aries sun beaming into your 8th house of joint partnerships and shared resources, you could be actively seeking ways to increase your financial independence through long-term planning. However, you need to slow down. The 8th house is your natural home, your natural ruler, therefore many of the themes occurring this month will strike a deep emotional response from you. Emotional outbursts and partner disagreements may increase this week. But don’t sweat it as any confrontation brings you closer to an agreement. Venus moving into Pisces and your 5th house on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, will help lighten the load emotionally as relationships tend to move towards the more sensual side, opening you up to a deeper soul connection. Give yourself permission to say what you feel. Every confession helps you shine brighter. Shine on!
Sagittarius, there is much movement taking place in your life, even if you can’t see or feel it. Having faith is your destiny this week as you move deeper into the can do nature of the Aries Sun. Especially since it highlights your 5th house of pleasure, creativity, and fame. Over the next few weeks you may find yourself becoming more open to exploring old hobbies and creative projects that have been dormant for a while. A big reason for this delay was not having the “right” people to do it with, but this time you have the strength and vigor to go it alone. And to your surprise, your willingness to bite the bullet yourself attracts like minded souls to assist you in this venture. Mercury going direct in Pisces on Thursday, March 28, 2019 in your 4th house brings an emotional situation surrounding home and family into neutral waters. After weeks of feeling stuck and contemplating your next move, it may be time to finally cut the cord and move out into the world on your own. Establishing a clear sense of sanctuary and healing is essential to your growth and sustenance. Take a leap of faith and branch out on your own. You will never know if you never try.
Capricorn, you have a lot to learn this week when it comes to emotions and family life. Especially after last week’s conjunction between The Sun and Chiron in Aries in your 4th house. Emotions are something that you naturally keep to yourself. But how is that working for you? With Venus moving into Pisces on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, in your 3rd house of self- expression and self-improvement, you may need to re-evaluate how you handle what you feel. Especially when it comes to communicating with others in a relationship. Being honest about something that has been bothering you for weeks, no matter how hurtful it is, will help clear up any uncharted water in a close relationship. Give yourself permission to be vulnerable and share your sensuality. There is more important forms of communications than sex. Challenge yourself. It’s time that you break open.
Aquarius, Venus has transited your first house of self for three weeks now. This transit was pivotal in addressing unhealthy relationship patterns that helped you clarify your internal desires and needs. Venus will leave the comfort of your 1st house on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 and enter your 2nd house of Pisces until April 17, 2019. This shift awakens the value that you hold over your personal relationships and how you spend your money. You may naturally find yourself more indulgent and purchase things that you would often ignore. Pay attention to this need to splurge. Make sure that you are not acting on a fear of lack or scarcity. Mars also leaves your 4th house of Taurus and enters your 5th house of Gemini on Sunday, March 31, 2019. Mars will transit your 5th house of Gemini until May 15th. This shift may leave you feeling spontaneous and open minded. Follow the urge to create. It could lead you to some spectacular places.
Pisces, even though the Sun is now in Aries, the spotlight is still shining bright on you! Mercury leaves its Retrograde station on Thursday, March 28th, 2019, giving you the green light to put some of those creative projects into action. Something you’ve been working on may get leaked this week, by you or someone else. And although this may not be intentional, it’s what you ultimately need to share this new expression of who you are and what you represent. On Tuesday, March 26 2019, Venus will leave your 12th house of closure and ending in Aquarius and enter your 1st house of Self in Pisces until April 17th. Whatever you let go of in terms of love, ideology, past ways of thinking and relating to others needs to be forgotten. The next three weeks are about you loving on you! Indulge in some good old fashion self-love techniques like long solitude walks in the park and hot baths in candlelight. If a new lover comes on the radar, don’t be so quick to push it away. Opening yourself up to a new boo, or a renewed connection, is a gift from the universe. Let the love flow in!
