There is a lot of energy in your Career Zone this month. It’s the month for you to lay down your 2017 career goals – put them in writing! If you want to renegotiate your pay, do it now. Your bosses and clients will be more open than usual. Note that in relationships, it’s important not to push too hard!

INFORMATION FOR ALL THE SIGNS

The big news of the month is that we have the planet of romance and riches – Venus – going backwards, as of March 4. While you may have heard of Mercury retrograde, which happens around four times every year, Venus retrograde is less well known and rarer.

Venus only goes into a retrograde cycle once every 18 months. For that reason, it’s important to work with the reverse cycle and make the most of it!

Venus retrograde is the time to re-evaluate everything. It’s the time to see if you’re living a life which matters to you. Work out what you really value and then see if your actions and your schedules are in tune with your priorities. It’s a time to get back to love.

For example, if you really value time with your beloved, your kids or grandkids, are you carving that out? Do you need to let someone know how much you would love to spend more time with them? Are you getting so busy that you don’t have time for doing the things which make you feel good? If so, this is the month to work out how to change that.

Relationships can feel a tad more detached than usual during this cycle but that’s ok. It’s time to work out who you really care for and who cares for you – and sometimes a little bit of distance can make that easier to figure out.

Financially, Venus retrograde can be a time of delayed payments, but also a time when money which has been a very long time coming finally arrives. So stay conscious and see what March’s Venus retrograde brings. Note that the retrograde lasts until mid-April.

Here’s where Venus is going backwards for you:

Venus will be going backwards in your 10th House of Career. This is essentially a very good and helpful thing, even though it might not feel 100% like that at the time. For a start, it’s all about you having a chance to have another think about how well you have the Work/Life balance thing under control. If you know your working life is taking up too much of your life, then it’s time to redress that. No one ever lay on their death bed and said “I wish I’d spent more time at the office!” On the other, if you’re owed money from a work contact, that could actually come any time soon.

HERE COMES THE CHANCE FOR CHANGE

There is also some rather big Jupiter action going on this month. Jupiter will clash first with Uranus (March 3) and then with Pluto (March 30). Jupiter is the amplification planet so when he is active like this, there is the potential to lots of something. In these case of these March alignments, you could say that the Uranus clash will bring the potential for lots of change and the Pluto clash the potential for even more profound transformation. So where is this taking place for you sign? Here’s the list for all the signs – the part of your life mentioned is where the chance for change is biggest. Remember that it’s said there is no such thing as a bad Jupiter transit, so even these clashes should ultimately bring about positive results.

Aries – in your love life
Taurus – when it comes to your daily work routines and your health
Gemini – regarding romance, creativity and kids
Cancer – at home and with family
Leo – when it comes to your mind-set and the way you communicate
Virgo – it’s about cash, property and possessions
Libra – your whole life!
Scorpio – your spiritual life
Sagittarius – your social life
Capricorn – at work/your career and ambitions
Aquarius – regarding study, travel and your cosmic quest through life
Pisces – re sex and/or money

These Jupiter clashes are not as powerful as eclipses, for example, but they could still bring about some seismic shifts. So stay conscious and focus on what you do want and not on what you don’t want. Also be aware that Jupiter is the planet of luck and risks so you could be feeling extra lucky or taking more risks in the part of your life highlighted above. You do have good luck on your side, which is good, but don’t be complacent!

WHAT’S YOUR MOTIVATION?

Meanwhile the planet Mars will make a reappearance back in the sign of Taurus this month (March 10), for the first time in about two years. Mars is the planet of determination and drive and takes about two years to go around the zodiac. As a Cancerian, Mars is now in the part of your chart associated with your friends and dreams. That means you should be more motivated when it comes to your social life and manifesting your dreams, during his stay in the sign of Taurus which will last until towards the end of April. However you can also be more short-tempered! Mars can be tiring because he is always going full pelt. However in the sign of Taurus, there is a sense that he can pace himself a little more, so hopefully there will be fewer frazzled nerves under this transit. Here’s more information about this for you about this astro-event which starts on March 10.

Look around you – are you surrounded by people you consider winners? Are they supportive? You’d better hope so because Mars in this part of your chart is all about the fact that it’s suddenly extra possible for you to achieve your goals – but only with a little help from your friends. And there’s another catch – Mars is a feisty little planet and wherever he goes, he takes his fiery attitude with him. Watch out that you don’t suddenly start taking on your mates and/or the people in your social circles, and the clubs and classes you belong to.

MEANWHILE ON THE MOON

We are now out of the eclipse season (until August). Hopefully last month with its eclipses was good for you? I know they were intense! I was travelling in the USA where the whole country seemed to be up in arms about one thing or another! Eclipses make for turbulent times, though great things can come out of them. This month though, we are back to plain old New and Full Moons – still great to work with but less intense and powerful.
If you didn’t already get the memo, the best way to work with the Full Moon is to use it to forgive and let go. Doing that will clear you out energetically – being energetically clear is healthy and also makes it easier for you to create the life you want. When we are all mangled up with anger and resentment, it’s very hard to get the good life-creating juju flowing.
New Moon is also the way to create the life you want for yourself. Every month brings a New Moon (sometimes two) and they are super-powerful times to set your intentions and make your wishes (witches use them to cast spells).

Here are the Full and New Moon times for March:
Full Moon at 23 Virgo
SYDNEY: March 13, 1.53am
NEW YORK: March 12, 10.53am
LONDON: March 12, 2.53pm

New Moon at 8 Aries
SYDNEY: March 28, 1.57pm
NEW YORK: March 27, 10.57pm
LONDON: March 28, 3.57am

If you would like to make some wishes, here’s a quick way to do them (from my best-selling book Moonology)

Here’s a quick, easy-to-use summary of the New Moon wishing process:
• Write down your top 10 wishes for the month.
• Visualize and feel your wishes in your body. Write down an affirmation to support them.
• Write down how you intend to work towards making each wish happen.
• Meditate, and then release attachment to your wishes by saying “For the good of all or not at all!” and/or “Om Namo Narayani” which is Sanskrit for “I surrender to the Divine!”
Note that the New Moon is taking place in the first sign of the zodiac, Aries. This means we are back at the start of the lunar cycle. Over the coming 12 months, the New Moon will trigger all 12 houses on your chart, which is another way of saying that over the next 12 months, the New Moon will trigger every part of your life!
If that sounds complex, don’t worry. It’s just that this month is a really great month to commit to working with the New Moon, since it’s effectively back at the start of the zodiac. If you want to connect with the New Moon, just keep an eye on these pages and note which part of your life is getting the New Moon juju every month!

Here’s where the New Moon is taking place for you:
Let’s hope you’re feeling revved up about your career or studies because the New Moon taking place this month is flooding your professional life or your student life with potential and ambition. If you’re already on the right path in your working life, this lunation here can really amp things up. However, if you’re struggling professionally and not quite sure where to turn, use this New Moon as a marker. Over the coming four weeks, you need to really put yourself out there in terms of talking to experts who can help you get where you want to be career wise, and also in terms of very basic things like research your job market.

WAYS TO CONNECT WITH THE NEW MOON

◗ Essential oil – Laurel is a wonderful essential oil to use during this cycle (in your bath or burner). It will help you to focus more as you work hard because it aids concentration. It also motivates and boosts confidence.
◗ Numerological energy – The digits in the number 10 (the New Moon is in your 10th House) add up to 1, which reminds you that you can be number one. This number also reminds you that working alone and working for yourself can be a good thing. However, if you know you’re too much of a lone wolf professionally, then use the power of the New Moon’s influence to do something about that.
◗ Mantra – Use the mantra Ram this month. Chant it out loud or silently every day: while you’re in the shower, before or after meditating, or at any other time that feels right to you. It works to boost the chakras of the month

IT’S GOOD TO TALK

Finally, looking at the chart for the month ahead, it’s clear that there is going to be a big emphasis on communications. As they say in the classics, it’s good to talk! And this month, as Mercury moves through Pisces and into Aries (March 14), there are going to be lots of chances to talk through anything and everything. Here are the standout dates.
March 4 – good for dreaming
March 8 – good for convincing someone of something
March 11 – healing conversations
March 12 – could be tricky / don’t be mean!
March 18 – great for talking about love or money
March 23 – good for getting to the bottom of a touch subject
March 24 – awesome for positive thinking and thinking big
March 26 – a day when a conversation can turn things around
March 29 – excellent for constructive conversations

SUMMING UP…

Don’t work? Want a part time job or another source of income? The Venus retrograde this month allows you to reinvestigate an old way you once had for generating cash. If you do work, though, annoyingly this month’s stars could also mean your pay is somehow delayed. Don’t panic, it will turn up eventually! A project you considered at some point in the past could also be a cash cow now. Socially, you’ll be extra motivated to get out and about in March. Avoid ‘friends’ who drive you mad – your temper is shorter than usual! Don’t let an upset go too far, especially towards the end of the month.
Power date: March 30 – too much of a good thing could cause a drama today. Be nice!
