Sun Signs March 2014
By Kris Brandt Riske, PMAFA
Aries (March 21-April 20): The Sun enters your sign on the 20th, marking the start of your new solar year. Ambitious plans and new directions are in the forecast, but you'll need to act with patience rather than haste. The days around the New Moon on the 30th could bring the first clues of coming changes that can lead to opportunities. Workplace relationships require finesse in early and late March, and your intuition tingles around the 22nd.
Taurus (April 21-May 21): Fun and friendship combine for plenty of socializing this month, along with an opportunity for romance near the Full Moon on the 16th. All that delightful play could, however, lead to lowered resistance near the March 30 New Moon, so give sleep and rest equal priority. Frustrations could arise on the job this month, especially during the first and last days of March. Plans and project are likely to face delays and opposition.
Gemini (May 22-June 21): The March 1 New Moon puts you and your career in high focus. In some ways, you can be everything to everyone this month, which could earn you honors and increased earnings. Travel, however, could be problematic; try to plan ahead for weather delays. Challenges could arise in early or late March if you're a student, involved in a legal matter, or giving a major presentation. Be well prepared and be patient.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): Career, family, and other personal relationships could be challenging at months end. Minimize conflict the best you can; this is not the time to push for what you want. A similar path is wise with domestic matters, such as major purchases, renovations, and renting or purchasing a home. Instead, devote your energy to learning, exploring, and expanding your knowledge and influence in the wider world. Optimism abounds!
Leo (July 23-Aug.22): Let the New Moon on the 1st and the Full Moon on the 16th motivate you to focus on finances. Turn your attention to everything from spending habits to budgeting to savings and investments, and also review insurance coverage. Hold off if you're tempted to purchase a new vehicle; you could change your mind after Mars turns direct in late May. Months end could bring work-related travel or a training event.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This months New Moon on the 1st and Full Moon on the 16th accent relationships. Devote time to those closest to you and also welcome new people into your life; think twice, though, if someone from the past wants to renew a relationship. Put spending on hold and saving on the fast track all month and into late May, when Mars will resume direct motion. Also take care to protect valuables, especially when in public.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): New personal directions beckon, but action is likely to be lacking now that Mars is retrograde in your sign. Use the time between now and the end of May for planning, and put major decisions on hold until then. A domestic, family, or relationship matter could bring conflict around the time of the March 30 New Moon. Patience and tact will be your best assets then. Clarify all work-related tasks this month.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Saturn in your sign turns direct on the 2nd, so you can expect personal matters to slowly gain momentum. Be aware, though, that you'll revisit events of the past few months again in this fall. Use the time between now and then to complete unfinished projects and to learn new skills. Romantic moments near the 22nd could be especially meaningful, when your mind will spark creative ideas. Take care to avoid accidents at months end.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Although Jupiter turning direct in Cancer on the 6th could boost your financial bottom line, be cautious about spending. Months end could bring unexpected expenses or a loss in investments. Overall, your focus is on home and career this month, and at times it will be a challenge to effectively juggle the demands of both. Check your home for leaks around the 22nd, which is also a great time to entertain friends.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Domestic and career plans could be stalled at months end, including challenges and delays related to a home purchase or improvement. That, in turn, could lead to tension at work and at home. You'll hear good news in late March, when you and someone close to you focus on the future with optimism. Set aside time to review return on investments and to do short- and long-term financial planning.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19): You have an extra sparkle after Venus enters your sign on the 5th. Your powers of attraction will be at their best, so choose your wishes with care; chances are, you'll get what you ask for. Travel at months end could be prone to delays and cancellations, and tension could arise with a sibling, neighbor, or in-law. Good news, possibly financial, could be yours at work around the 26th, which is also a highly productive time.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20): The focus is on you, thanks to the New Moon on the 1st in your sign. Dream big and listen to your intuition the third week of March, when a romantic or creative moment could boost your optimism. Be cautious with spending and investments, and safeguard valuables, at months end. Take action if you realize that your career aims could benefit from additional education or skills, but avoid taking on debt to fund learning.
