This week, we need to get our ducks in a row no matter how distracted we feel by world events and the imminent arrival of springtime. It really helps if we get organized before Mercury retrogrades on Wednesday, March 30. We have to stop creating new work and clean up and refine what we’ve already begun.
Don’t be discouraged by an apparent stalemate on business or political issues; things look as if they are in a standoff, but events may actually signal a shift in direction and in who holds the power as Jupiter opposes Saturn this week. Be persistent and patient toward any ongoing process that feels important, and deprioritize the rest. Life may feel full of obstacles, but work done now can build a solid foundation.
The weekend begins in a sociable mood, and then we knuckle down to work. It’s hard to get started on chores, but once we’re moving, we can motor along efficiently under a Capricorn moon. Notice a willful push, and watch for a use of force that brings questionable results. Instead of being suspicious, respond with guarded optimism, but keep your eyes open. Train rather than test one another.
Venus joins Mars in easily overwhelmed Pisces on Sunday and softens our hearts. We may feel unusually sensitive but open-hearted. Intimate relationships take on an extra shimmer. We are easily hurt by a careless word and affected by a sweet smile or soft caress. Through early next week, we need to trust someone we wouldn’t normally trust or feel pushed to work with someone unusual.
Early in the week, we may feel revved up but also like we are treading water. A collaborative vibe helps. Water and water-quality problems need to be addressed; misinformation prevents us from maintaining focus as Jupiter challenges Neptune.
Midweek brings out our inner underdog as Mercury retrogrades and the moon enters Pisces, highlighting our vulnerability. Take care of allergies and look around for those who need help. It’s time to speak from the heart, not from the head. Lean upon one another, and remember that we’re all in this together.
Friday, March 25:
We feel our connection to the natural world, whether in sickness or in health. After an accident-prone morning, the afternoon is cooperative. The vibe grows controlling later as the moon enters Capricorn. Get organized early, and seek change later on.
Saturday, March 26:
Midday is productive. Work hard to achieve personal goals, but avoid manipulating others. Let existential homesickness wash away as the moon conjuncts Pluto. Tonight, combine arts and good causes or reach out heart-to-heart as Venus conjuncts Neptune.
Sunday, March 27:
Stay away from unproductive political debate as the moon squares Jupiter and Saturn. We feel compassionate as Venus enters Pisces later in the day. Avoid erratic thinking around dinnertime.
Monday, March 28:
We wake up to some tough realities as the sun squares Pluto. Check moods before leaning on anyone. Don’t count on luck — put effort where it’s needed, and the way becomes clear.
Tuesday, March 29:
Today, conversation runs at cross purposes because people are distracted, not uncaring. Use stubbornness to accomplish things.
Wednesday, March 30:
Reflexes are slow today. Camaraderie counts — we remember who helps us and who adds to our burdens.
Thursday, March 31:
Make the best of every situation. If something is truly important, follow through doggedly; postpone all other logistical dealings for a while.
