On March 6th, Mercury and Venus enter Aries. Communication and love/money/self-esteem issues will be given a jolt of fresh possibility and passion, in the sign of the warrior and pioneer. This is bold, unscripted energy that encourages impulsive words, attractions and expression.
However, on March 11th Mercury will have his fiery words blocked by a disapproving square from Saturn in Capricorn. There will be rules or traditions that will restrict what you have to say, or pressure you to say things in a certain way. While you’re dealing with these limits, know that Mars in Sagittarius will trine Uranus in Aries, so you’ll be encouraged to act, move forward or take a risk. The key to successfully dealing with both these aspects is to honour whatever Saturn says you must say (or can’t say) while finding an active (Mars) outlet and moving forward. A square from Saturn may simply refer to an increased need for focus, proof or mental fortitude.
On March 8th, Jupiter stations Rx in Scorpio (at 23 deg). Profound growth or the exposure of dark issues will pause, so you can look more deeply at these developments. Intense events can be overwhelming (and destructive) if you don’t have an opportunity to slow down and prioritize, examine or question. Sometimes an Rx can intensify the energy of the planet in question, so there may be one, focused area that experiences concentrated expansion or exposure.
On June 29th, 2016 transiting Mars ended his retrograde when he stationed direct at 23 deg Scorpio - actions/anger/passion from that time may be connected to this Jupiter Rx.
Jupiter will station direct on July 10th, 2018.
Mercury and Venus into your sign can bring secrets out into the open. A hidden plan, potential or attraction can now go public. Or, you may find it impossible to keep a lid on juicy information. Now is the time to speak out, and you’ll have charm, persuasion and clarity on your side.
However, Mercury square Saturn can suggests blocks around what you want to say, which might make you question the wisdom of speaking out. Professional rules or authority pressure you to prove your knowledge, communicate in a very defined way or, not communicate at all. But Mars trine Uranus in your sign can help - actions involving travel, education, legal matters or publishing will not only present you with freedom and innovation, you’ll find a conduit for your philosophies. Keep pushing for what you believe in, while you organize your thoughts/words.
Jupiter Rx in your sector of shared resources asks you to reconsider the value of what’s been gaining momentum.

Developments could refer back to June 29th, 2016.
Mercury and Venus into your hidden sector can trigger a hidden potential, background attraction or intriguing plan.

However, Mercury square Saturn will provide the first reality check for the above, and this is necessary in order to test the validity of what’s happening. If you’re faced with a discouraging block, know that Mars/Uranus will encourage you to dig deeper with committed actions or passion.

Too, you may be asked to act from a place of complete trust.
Jupiter Rx in your partnership sector can slow the momentum of a new relationship, or developments in a long-term union.

Or, one area of expansion may intensify. Developments could refer back to June 29th, 2016.
Mercury and Venus into your social sector suggest more contacts with friends, groups and the public.

What you’re allowed to say, or how your words are received, can frustrate you. A competitor may challenge you.

Things may have been very good, or completely over the top. Now, you can look more closely at what you’ve been enjoying/creating, and consider if you might be a bit more selective. If a particular area of creativity/performance/romance seems to deepen, know that this is where your attention should be focused for the time being. Developments could refer back to June 29th, 2016.

If words fail you, consider if there is some action that you can take, instead.

The recent rush of information may slow, allowing you to focus on one issue and dig for the truth - is there proof to back things up?

Developments could refer back to June 29th, 2016.

Or, you may have to take stock of a recent influx of money - make sure that you’ve got a handle on where your resources are going.

Developments could refer back to June 29th, 2016.
Mercury and Venus into your sector of routine can provide you with more work, but also more motivation to find solutions. Excellent for upgrades, spring cleaning and self-improvement. However, Mercury square Saturn will pinpoint a specific problem, in work or health matters. Crunch time can arrive in the form of extra demands, pressure or restrictions on what you can do. Mars/Uranus offers an outlet in the form of strategic actions - you’ve probably got your eye on what you want, be it money or emotional satisfaction. Go for it, even if you have to contend with rules or delays. The key will be rolling with the ongoing changes that have been restructuring your immediate environment.

Take action and try something new - the limits will still be there (and you may have to dial back some of your plans) but there’s no reason why you can’t move forward.
Jupiter Rx in your hidden sector can signal a shift or retreat in the direction of a dream or hidden potential. If something seems to fade, know that this is temporary (Jupiter will station direct in July, 2018).

Developments could refer back to June 29th, 2016.
Mercury and Venus into your domestic sector can trigger family discussions, plans for a home or home business, or a fresh sense of confidence and excitement about what you want to do next on a personal level. However, the square from Saturn in your sign will trigger caution and an awareness of how your existing responsibilities/limits play into this. Fortunately, you’re an old hand at dealing with limits - if you can’t push through something, it only makes you more determined to work with the rules in a savvy way. Mars/Uranus suggests unusual flashes of inspiration are on tap - pay attention to background nudges that urge you to try something new or take an unexpected turn. There’s a point where you can put the analysis aside (after you’ve made your plans) and allow instinct to govern your next move.
Jupiter Rx in your social sector can delay expansion/opportunities in the areas of friends, groups and public connections. New developments may be put on hold, or events may cause you to pull back and ask some questions. You’re meant to take stock of public growth or new friendships, while looking more closely at one person or area - there’s more beneath the surface, and you may have missed this during the intensified period of growth.

Developments could refer back to June 29th, 2016.

Reaching out to others can provide more inspiration and reasons why you should move forward.
Jupiter Rx in your career sector suggests growth/progress in areas such as a new job, job search, your current job or plans for the future may be put on hold. This doesn’t invalidate the growth that’s happened so far, it’s simply a call to double- check new opportunities and/or concentrate more fully on one, particular opportunity.

Developments could refer back to June 29th, 2016.
