Rolling in the deep! This month you're navigating introspective waters as the Sun moves through Pisces and your intimate eighth house until March 20. Chatting about the latest TMZ gossip is the furthest thing from your mind. You're too busy diving into a detailed project or processing complex emotions. Seduction smolders under these sexy skies, and feelings can get intense. Carve out private time away from the crowds. The eighth house also rules long-term wealth, so your attention could turn to a joint venture or investments. Is it time to make a merger official?
While you're pondering the mysteries of life, this month brings a couple cosmic challenges. Expansive Jupiter, which is retrograde from February 6 to June 9, will tangle with rebellious Uranus and power-monger Pluto. These tense aspects could wildly disrupt the balance in both personal and political arenas. Over the course of a year, Jupiter will have three rounds of these celestial clashes. The last two were in November and December 2016, so expect another round of whatever came up over the holidays. Hopefully this midpoint will bring more resolution than revolution—but it's likely to be a mix of those two at best.
On March 3, Jupiter makes its first foray into cosmic combat, when it forms a tense opposition to erratic Uranus. Jupiter is in Libra and your communicative third house until October. Getting your message across is already a challenge, and today's stars are no help. Watch your words during this disruptive Jupiter-Uranus battle in Aries and your outspoken ninth house. An off-the-cuff comment could start World War III.
Don't justify anything with "What? I was just being honest." That will win you zero fans under these volatile skies. Be cautious about what you post on social media or broadcast to the masses. Your thoughts could go viral, especially if they're provocative. (See this cautionary tale about a Twitter "joke" that ruined one woman's life). Under this erratic influence, so much is out of your control. News might arrive that shakes up the status quo and requires fast action. These two over-the-top planets face off only once every 14 years, and this is the second of three such alignments this cycle. The first was on December 26, 2016, and the third will be on September 28 of this year. Apply strong filters!
A welcome dose of grounding energy arrives with the March 12 full moon in Virgo, which lights up your second house of security. You could have a crowning money moment: a raise, a lucrative contract, maybe a new gig. Since full moons can bring endings, you may part ways with a client or leave a job you've outgrown. This productive lunation is prime time for revamping your routines and boosting self-sufficiency. Pare down and prioritize. Focus on the basics of how you earn, spend and save. Small changes can bring a big payoff.
Once the Sun blazes into Aries and your ninth house of expansion on March 20, the heaviness of the past month lifts, encouraging you to seek out greener pastures. If you forgot how wild and wonderful this world is, the next month serves up a vivid reminder. Pursue a lifelong dream of traveling to India to learn about textiles or earning an advanced sociology degree. Maybe you'll roll the dice on an entrepreneurial venture, like running improv workshops in corporate settings or launching a creative food truck. Let your visionary side out to play.
A great day to follow your bliss is March 27, when the Aries new moon kicks off an adventurous new cycle. With FIVE planets in Aries (the Sun, moon, Venus, Uranus and Mercury) firing up this farsighted sector of your chart, playing small is no longer an option. Initiate plans that will broaden your reach, like giving a rousing TEDx Talk or establishing an overseas office. Your higher purpose is on the agenda; seeking out a new spiritual belief system can catapult you to new heights. Seeds planted today will blossom over the next six months. Prepare to soar!
The month ends with some high-octane conflict. On March 30, Jupiter makesw a tight square with compulsive Pluto in Capricorn and your analytical sixth house. Information overload much? Stress levels could rise, and you could scramble to put out multiple, simultaneous fires on the job. There's so much to contend with here, as conversations could get heated (and overblown), and your to-do list grows longer by the millisecond. Breathe, Leo. There's no rule saying you have to find immediate solutions to everything.
This is the second of three such squares; the first happened on November 24, 2016, and the third will arrive on August 4. Since the sixth house rules health, tension could have an impact on your physical wellbeing. All the more reason to take things one step at a time. Hit the gym if you're feeling the burn of a chaotic work environment. Be careful not to push yourself too far past your limits now, or a meltdown will be inevitable. Stock up on chamomile tea, and take regular meditation breaks. For zoning out productively, we highly recommend the soothing tunes at www.brain.fm. If you're overwhelmed with work, don't let control issues stop you from delegating. There's no place for pride—and nobody ever won a medal for doing it all themselves. Ditch the martyr routine and delegate.
