USE THIS WEEK TO PRE­PARE for the vi­brant spring ahead. Let’s clean our flower beds and rake our emo­tional is­sues and po­lit­i­cal se­crets out of the cor­ners and send them to the com­post. Clear the ground, study, re­stock, and com­plete the work of the mind, body, and soul.

If we’re hon­est with our­selves, we prob­a­bly re­al­ize what we need to do this com­ing sea­son, if not ex­actly how or where. Last month’s UranusMars con­junc­tion in Aries — along with a few eclipses — did its best to wake us up and let us know what we need to deal with next.

We may still feel that end-of-win­ter, sun-in-Pisces low en­ergy, so let’s pace our­selves. En­er­giz­ing Mars moves into steady Taurus, which gives us more phys­i­cal en­durance than en­thu­si­asm. We need time to re­plen­ish in the dream world and let our psy­ches process all that’s been going on.

This week­end mental Mer­cury squares se­ri­ous Saturn, and we may per­se­ver­ate and worry — a pat­tern com­pounded by a full moon in in­tro­spec­tive and edgy Virgo. Put those mental mus­cles to good use so they don’t just spin in cir­cles.

Mer­cury en­ters Aries on Mon­day, adding to the un­der­ly­ing rest­less buzz. We may jump to con­clu­sions more eas­ily and grow more ver­bally im­petu­ous. While this can be fun un­der a so­cia­ble, gen­er­ous Libra moon early in the week, on Wed­nes­day the moon en­ters iras­ci­ble Scorpio, op­pos­ing mar­tial Mars, and that lack of im­pulse control can sharpen spears.

Choose to be in­ci­sive, not mean. On this last full week be­fore the ver­nal equinox, we need to stir the com­post and pre­pare, but we don’t have to blow up the gar­den.

FRI­DAY, MARCH 10: Feel a pull to over­dra­ma­tize this morn­ing — ac­knowl­edge feel­ings with­out the soap opera. Mid­day, cre­ate suc­cess­ful meet­ings that pro­mote dy­namic change. Our en­ergy be­gins to flag and our thoughts grow se­ri­ous as the moon en­ters Virgo midafter­noon. We can get per­snick­ety if tired, but great con­ver­sa­tion will bring us back to life.

SATUR­DAY, MARCH 11: We can feel over­whelmed if we try to en­com­pass too much or let our imag­i­na­tions dwell on con­cerns. We may take it out on one an­other as a way of dis­pers­ing anx­i­ety — or we can open our hearts to one an­other. Di­rect this nervy en­ergy wisely.

SUN­DAY, MARCH 12: Our minds and stom­achs can bunch up as Mer­cury squares Saturn un­der a Virgo full moon — un­less we’ve got some­thing pro­duc­tive to do. Late evening smooths out frus­tra­tions as the moon en­ters Libra.

MON­DAY, MARCH 13: It can be a relief to get back to work this morn­ing. Our minds speed up, and the fil­ters may come off as Mer­cury en­ters caf­feinated Aries this af­ter­noon. Rather than be­come de­mand­ing tonight, let’s ask what our long­ings sym­bol­ize.

TUES­DAY, MARCH 14: Events can trig­ger the re­al­iza­tion of who’s pre­cious and who’s full of it, which al­lows us to re­or­ga­nize our in­ter­per­sonal pri­or­i­ties. Open up this af­ter­noon as the moon con­juncts Jupiter.

WED­NES­DAY, MARCH 15: As the moon en­ters se­ri­ous Scorpio and op­poses volatile Mars on this prag­mat­i­cally ef­fi­cient but emo­tion­ally stormy day, it will sta­bi­lize us to fo­cus on lo­gis­tics. Our im­pulse control is down, but we can con­cen­trate or ob­sess. Write po­lit­i­cal com­men­tary and ad­vo­cate, but avoid crowded in­ter­sec­tions and emo­tion­ally de­mand­ing sit­u­a­tions.

THURS­DAY, MARCH 16: Let’s pace our­selves and re­store phys­i­cal re­serves that have re­cently burnt up. If peo­ple are guarded, don’t take it per­son­ally. We need our shields while our in­tu­ition is so strong. Lis­ten to sud­den hunches about work, and fol­low up with fact-find­ing.
