THE PLAN­ETS SUG­GEST this will be a pro­duc­tive week if we don’t get dis­tracted by our eas­ily in­flamed emo­tions. But we may be thin-skinned and painfully aware of our vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties as Mer­cury ap­proaches in­tu­itive Nep­tune in sen­si­tive Pisces. And with emo­tional Venus and Mars near elec­tri­fy­ing Uranus in forth­right Aries, we may also be en­er­gized and eas­ily ticked off.

Venus ap­pears to turn back­ward in Aries this week, in­creas­ing the heat on our emo­tions. Venus sym­bol­izes what we value enough to be a re­source to us. While Venus ret­ro­grades within a few de­grees of in­tense Pluto, it re­minds us of what we hold dear, as well as what we’ve lost or could lose. This as­pect is known for stir­ring up our mem­o­ries, ex­pos­ing scan­dalous ma­te­rial, and pro­vok­ing out­rage. Though we may now be in out­rage burnout, we need to pace our­selves through the next few months, as the plan­ets keep emo­tions simmering.

This week­end’s Mer­cury-sun-Nep­tune con­junc­tion leaves us un­usu­ally em­pathic and aware. We may be flooded by melt­ing snows or waves of feel­ing. But com­mu­ni­ca­tion can be our sav­ing grace un­der a ver­bal Gem­ini moon.

A sta­bi­liz­ing Mars-Saturn trine early next week can help us step out of dis­trac­tion and into ef­fi­ciency, even as a self-pro­tec­tive Can­cer moon brings out a wari­ness of other peo­ple’s ex­pec­ta­tions and mo­tives.

To­ward the week’s end, a Leo moon amps up the dra­matic nar­ra­tive again. Hid­den se­crets come to light as the sun and Mer­cury sex­tile Pluto and help us cut through some bo­gus per­cep­tion. We’ll have a more re­al­is­tic view of what’s go­ing on, and can make plans ac­cord­ingly.

FRI­DAY, MARCH 3: Our re­solve can firm up this morn­ing in the face of new in­put. We know what we want but can be shocked by what oth­ers will do for their own de­sires. Stub­born­ness in­creases where we feel pushed, but peo­ple re­spond well to an hon­est state­ment of needs.

SATUR­DAY, MARCH 4: The mood is nervy and eas­ily dis­tracted as the moon en­ters ver­bal Gem­ini. We need to keep the con­ver­sa­tion go­ing, but should mind our words; it’s easy to say too much and feel mis­un­der­stood. Lis­ten to hunches and peer into the fu­ture, but per­ceive with hearts and souls as well as minds. SUN­DAY, MARCH 5: Ac­tive dreams and a rest­less mind can leave us nervy this morn­ing. Af­ter­noon of­fers more con­trol, in­spir­ing us to ac­com­plish and build. A de­lay may prove for­tu­nate. Our brains rat­tle around tonight, beg­ging for rest through dis­trac­tion. MON­DAY, MARCH 6: We start off with good in­ten­tions but may soon move into a more de­fen­sive stance. Don’t push peo­ple out of their com­fort zones; of­fer re­as­sur­ance. TUES­DAY, MARCH 7: Stay on tar­get and keep pri­or­i­ties clear. Take ad­van­tage of pass­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and don’t take oc­ca­sion­ally abra­sive at­ti­tudes per­son­ally. Men­tal Mer­cury sex­tiles deep Pluto and can help us fo­cus or ob­sess, but we must sort gos­sip from real crime. WED­NES­DAY, MARCH 8: Our think­ing may be sharp and edgy this morn­ing. It’s im­por­tant to hold peo­ple ac­count­able for their ac­tions but not to waste time find­ing fault. Be care­ful what be­hav­ior is re­warded with at­ten­tion. THURS­DAY, MARCH 9: Shine for all sen­tient be­ings as the sun sex­tiles Pluto un­der a Leo moon. Cul­tural wounds are show­ing, but a healthy re­fram­ing en­cour­ages us to share our tal­ents with gen­eros­ity and in­tegrity. Mars leaves feisty Aries and en­ters earthy Tau­rus, which can slow down the fire­works and add fresh re­silience and re­sis­tance.
