The fire is lit this week as the Sun moves into Aries, ushering in the Spring Equinox on March 20th. It's a time of new begginings, new hope, initiative and action. Venus adds her energy to the mix, entering Aries on March 21st. The theme for this Spring involves a bolder approach to love, money, values and self-esteem (all Venus ruled areas). Initiating what you want (and what's best for you) would be an excellent use of this energy. However, note that Mars will collide with Uranus (the disruptor) on March 22nd, tossing out a wild card influence. Events can unfold either way, with breakthroughs, beginnings and endings in equal proportion. You can't predict or control what will happen, so have a back up plan and don't take unnecessary risks. But if you're looking for inspiration or adventure, this is your week. The Mars/Uranus influence will be active from the 17th to the 22nd.
As the Sun and Venus enter your sign, get set for increased magnetism, creativity and confidence. You'll be attracting lots of attention, but you'll also be in the mood to pursue (thanks to Mars). You'll be firing on all cylinders, and anything can happen, especially as Mars and Uranus join forces. You may experience this influence as a gradual build up (leading to an explosion on the 22nd) or events may come at you with no warning. Watch for a sudden break (or breakthrough) and use caution, as this energy can trigger accidents. What you push for (or set in motion) can have unexpected consequences, so don't push if you're not prepared to take the risk.
The Sun and Venus (your ruler) heat up your sector of hidden things, stirring up unexplored/unacknowledged potentials. You may feel like keeping developments to yourself, or diving in where you've never ventured before. Part of the thrill may be the lure of what's forbidden. As Mars and Uranus come together, watch for a revelation or exposed secret to come blasting out of nowhere. Clarity can be illuminating or jarring, but you won't have much control over what's exposed. For this reason, be very careful about who/what you give your attention to this week. Do you really want to know the whole truth? Are you comfortable if everyone else finds out?
The Sun and Venus light up your social sector, keeping you busy, popular and in full circulation. You'll feel like connecting with friends or exploring an exciting new flirtation, but whatever you do, keep it light. Mars and Uranus will ensure that events will turn on a dime, and people can abruptly enter and exit your life. Associations/friendships can rupture, arguments can flare up and die, people can act in strange and unexpected ways. Go with the energy, but don't count on others this week. Your public profile will be in the spotlight, and there may be sudden opportunities to do more/move ahead; don't hesitate (if it's something you really want) but keep in mind that results are not guaranteed.
Your career is on the fast track as the Sun and Venus bring you attention, status and favourable energy from higher ups. You can do a lot with these influences if you act now and push forward; innovation and ambition are favoured. This is also a great time to send out resumes, apply for positions, and network. Mars and Uranus could throw you for a loop as someone may demand more from you than you're prepared to give. Whether a client asks for the unexpected, or extra responsibilities are dropped in your lap, look at this as an opportunity to show others that you're flexible, and more than ready to take on new challenges (even if you don't feel that way). On a cautionary note; your professional reputation may be in the line of fire (whether you're aware of it or not) so proceed carefully, politely and with the utmost professionalism. If others challenge you, respond with class and restraint; there's too much to lose if you strike back.
The Sun and Venus can stir up your urge to travel, explore and check out exotic (and intriguing) new opportunities. If you're feeling restless, that's because there's much out there waiting for you. Opportunities exist with long distance travel, education and legal matters. But Mars and Uranus suggest that what's different/unexplored can be a bit too different, depending on how open to risk you are. If you're up for an adventure (with no assured outcome) then dive in; there's one just waiting for you. Otherwise, use caution when travelling or dealing with legal matters. Events can turn suddenly, so its best to have a back up plan.
The Sun and Venus can heat things up for you financially, and regarding intimacy. The time for hesitation is past; step up like you mean business, or move on. More will be demanded of you, but you're ready; embrace a new partnership, business plan, or financial opportunity. Mars and Uranus can be jolting, with a last minute surprise or revelation (in intimacy or money matters). You won't see this one coming, and for some, the shock can be unpleasant. If there's an ending or undesired consequence, take it as the wake up call it's meant to be, and move on. This area of your chart will be buzzing for the next month or so, and there's more opportunities to make gains, bounce back or recoup your losses. Keep moving.
The Sun and Venus (your ruler) put the emphasis on romance and partnership. An existing relationship could blossom or a bold, new possibility could appear. In general, you'll be feeling more positive about your love life and your ability to attract what you want. However, Mars and Uranus can trigger a sudden argument (with a partner) or an unexpected development/break/breakthrough in a relationship. You may find yourself pushing back harder than you expected (or than you thought you could). Alternatively, you could be hit by an exciting new relationship opportunity, opening or idea; if it feels right, don't hesitate.
The Sun and Venus enter your sector of work and health, improving co worker relationships and making your daily routine more pleasant or profitable. Health matters/energy level can improve as well, but be cautious during the Mars/Uranus influence; accidents and unforeseen outcomes (especially if you've been pushing yourself too hard) can blindside you. Give yourself some extra TLC this week and don't indulge in risky behaviour. Alternatively, Mars/Uranus can trigger a sudden breakdown with computers, office equipment or appliances.
The Sun and Venus can fire up your creativity, passion, urge to celebrate or flirt. This is a wonderful influence for increasing your chances of publicity and success. No matter how you spin it, you'll be in the spotlight, and the attention should be favourable. Mars and Uranus can trigger an exciting new introduction or creative inspiration; you'll feel like taking a chance on whatever (or whoever) comes your way. Speculation can be fun, but remember that when Uranus is involved, the outcome is never a sure thing. Release your expectations and just enjoy the moment. On the other hand, if you've been feeling stuck/blocked or uninspired, this influence could be just what you need to push forward.
The Sun and Venus draw your attention to home and family matters. You may become more focused on settling in at home with a special someone, or livening up your place of residence with some hopeful changes. Mars/Uranus can trigger something volatile right where you feel it most, so go slow during this influence. Accidents around the home, arguments that come out of nowhere and sudden developments with a parent/partner are all possibilities. All this energy in your place of rest and retreat can feel jarring, but know that the big picture impact is meant to sweep away stagnant habits based in your past; your usual ways of reacting won't cut it anymore. It's time to move ahead with your life.
The Sun and Venus move into your communications sector, bringing hopeful conversations/messages/information. If you need to convince someone or do some PR work, this is the ideal influence; people will take note of what you say, and you'll say it just right. Mars/Uranus can toss an unexpected, game changing message or bit of information in your lap. Revelations and arguments can bring clarity and alter your ideas in ways you never imagined. Use caution with sensitive communications during this influence; it will be too easy to say something you later regret.
The Sun and Venus can bring you a financial break and/or emotional satisfaction. You'll start to feel more comfortable, hopeful and secure about getting your needs met, on all levels. Mars/Uranus can push you to demand far more than you (or anyone else) expected; that urgency you're feeling is part of your developing awareness of what you deserve. Alternatively, sudden developments with savings, salary, bills or emotional security can catch you off guard. Quick action will be called for, but resist the urge to panic and blow things up into epic proportions. This is a short term influence, and you've got positive energy on your side.
