March 2016 Horoscope

Active and energetic…more so than usual.
By Lilly Roddy

This is a particularly active and energetic month. Normally, this means we are making decisions and making some headway in our lives. We get a boost from the solar eclipse in Pisces, connecting us to our inner lives. The corresponding lunar eclipse on the 22nd in Libra will prompt us to share more of our inner lives with others. Can we trust our intuition and our choices?

The last week in March is very energetic and could create some rocky and unexpected events. Good days for activities are the 2nd, 15th, 16th, 24th, 26th, and 29th. Days to be extra flexible are the 5th, 6th, 8th, 11th, 14th, 20th, 23rd, 25th, 30th, and 31st.

The sun enters Aries, the sign of spring, on the 19th at 11:30 p.m., and Easter is the first Sunday after the March 23 Full Moon and the March 19 entrance of the sun into Aries.

ARIES (March 21–April 19). You are in a time of hibernation and retreat. Choose your company carefully this month, because you will not be up for much drama. Continue to pay attention to your health and workout regimens. You can certainly make a lot of headway there. You will emerge from your time of retreat much more energetic and willing to get back to the projects at hand. The full Moon on the 23rd will bring relationships into focus for you. There are big changes happening at work at the end of the month. You will want to be your own boss and have more control over what goes on.

TAURUS (April 20–May 20). This month you are focused on your career and your business and community associations. This could be an especially good time to take on a leadership role in an organization that is connected to furthering your career or security goals. Friends and associates can be especially helpful and supportive this month. Don’t be afraid to call on them. Relationship energies are very strong, and potentially very reactive. Toward the end of the month, you’re ready to have some time to yourself.

GEMINI (May 21–June 21). This continues to be a busy and active time for the Geminis. A part of you is trying to expand and step off the path you have been following for a long time. You are having stronger expectations, and want to have a more direct hand in your decisions and choices. You are having an especially strong focus on your career, both this year and this month. You will be narrowing down your options after the 25th of this month. The relationships in your life are also going through a similar re-evaluation process. Look for friends to be more supportive in the latter part of the month.

CANCER (June 22–July 22). As the month opens, you are in a much more intellectually creative time that’s especially good for teaching, writing, or working on continuing education. You have been continually trying to establish a new path in your life, and while you haven’t exactly arrived at that point, you are getting prepared to do something about it. In the latter half of the month, you are much more energetic and clear about what you want to do. Continue to work out and focus on getting healthier.

LEO (July 23–August 22). Relationships continue to play a significant role in the early part of the month. You will want to interact and feel more connected with those closest to you. You are still putting a lot of energy into your home and your family by trying to get things cleaned up and organized. Some family members will not be open and accepting of your new plans. You have been discovering some of your hidden talents this year, and you are looking to give this part of yourself a real place in your life—and in a potential new career. Toward the end of the month, you’re feeling much more active and energetic.

VIRGO (August 23–September 22). Relationships take the spotlight this month, and it’s a good time to renew your existing relationships or market yourself for a new partnership. You continue to be in a review-and-renew time with your career. You are looking for something to feel more connected to, so that your work fulfills a sense of inner satisfaction rather than feeling like you’re just rolling the rock uphill all day. This is also a good time to be doing home repairs, or even to consider relocating. Toward the end of the month, you will begin to focus on your financial life and freeing yourself from financial burdens.

LIBRA (September 23–October 23). This month you are focused on organizing your office, home, and health routines. Take a gentle approach to your health, such as yoga or Tai Chi Chuan. Relationships take on more significance by the latter part of the month. It continues to remain unsettled with your relationships as you work out new rules and new freedoms. Conditions continue to shift at home as you are working on home remodeling or even moving. This can be a time when you have to deal with your parents as they age, forcing you to take on more familial duties and responsibilities.

SCORPIO (October 24–November 21). Your need to rush rush rush and get things done yesterday finally begins to slow down after March 5. Your relationship dynamics will also be less confrontational, and hopefully you will be able to sleep better. You are paying a lot more attention to your finances this year, and especially this month. Toward the end of the month, you begin to work on improving your work environment and your health. This continues to be a good year for you to involve yourself in community or business organizations. Don’t be afraid to step into a leadership role.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21). This month you are very much more energetic, ready to start new endeavors and confront the problems in your life. Mars, planet of action, enters your sign for the next three months. This is also a great time for getting yourself in shape. And all the while, you are continuing to consider long-term security plans associated with your career and your relationships. Home and family are very important this month, and you may need to have evenings to yourself to recover from the constant daytime pressures. You do lighten up some by the end of the month, but you are still trying to make the best use of your time, love, and money!

CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19). The need for some level of constant and continuing change has been keeping you going for several months now. You are ready to take a break from all the activity, especially in the first half of the month. If you have the time, take the opportunity to get away from your work and routines for a short trip out of town. It will do wonders for you. Even if you can only turn off your electronic leash for a weekend, you will benefit from that release. Toward the end of the month, you are back on the busy track and focusing more on your family and home life. Clean out those closets and storerooms.

AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18). This month you are working on making better use of your skill sets. You will be more aware of how you are treated by other people. You may be looking for a better place to work, and especially to increase your financial base. Friends and community groups will need your help and support this month. In business, this is a good time for you to take a leadership role in your community. By the end of the month, you are ready to take action on the plans you came up with in the earlier part of the month. Make sure you have an exit plan, just in case you get overwhelmed.

PISCES (February 19–March 20). Happy birthday to the Mermaids and Mermen. This is your personal yearly cycle of review and putting news ideas into action. This continues to be a period when you are looking at how you can make the best use of your time. Although there are plenty of social activities and travel opportunities, you are weighing and measuring the cost and the benefits of any activity that you commit to. This continues to be a good time for relationships—business, friendship, or romance. You are more action-oriented and focused on your finances as we get to the end of the month. This is a good time to promote yourself in your career. Take a leadership role—they are just waiting for you to do it.
