Use March to start all over again when it comes to your health and fitness routines. Whether you start 2017 intending to look after yourself or not, it’s the right moment for you to think about if your levels of self-care are adequate. Being a Scorpio is an intense business. Ask yourself this month “What’s worth worrying about and what isn’t?”

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 retrograding in your 6th House of Daily Work Routines and Health. This is good news for you if you’ve been trying to get on track with your diet and exercise routines, especially if one of the reasons you need to do this is something simply and superficial like you just want to look better! We are all allowed a little vanity! So use this cycle now if you’ve fallen off the bandwagon and haven’t been keeping up with your regimes. Venus here also suggests you can do your health some good with some self-pampering. Massage or facial, anyone?

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 mindset 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 Scorpio, Mars is now in the part of your chart associated with love life. That means you should be more motivated when it comes to romance during his stay in the sign of Taurus which will last until towards the end of April. However you can also lose your cool with others more easily. 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 event which starts on March 10.

The part of your chart now being activated by Mars is your love zone – the part of your chart where you deal with your most important one to one relationships, past, present and future. Mars here can bring tensions but if you are smart, you can actually turn his visit into something positive. Rather than suffering in silence about anything which is bothering you, Mars can be used to tackle issues so that the air is cleared. Good relationships get hotter and more passionate now. Bad ones just get argumentative! Aim for compromise where you can.

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:
Oh you lucky lucky thing! You have the New Moon in your 6th House this month. In one way, this is one of the most dull and tedious Houses. It’s the part of your chart which is all about your daily routines. Not exactly riveting! However, this is also the part of your chart where you get a New Moon and you get a chance to tweak your routines so that at the very least, your daily life runs in a way that pleases you. If there are minor changes you need to make to the way your life runs, to your routines and schedules, then this is a great month to put those changes in place.

WAYS TO CONNECT WITH THE NEW MOON

◗ Essential oil – If you’re having trouble expressing yourself, or you feel like your daily grind is all too much, try dabbing a bit of tea tree oil at the base of your throat or on your wrists, or putting it in your bath or burner.
◗ Numerological energy – The number 6 is the most harmonious of the numbers 1–9. It’s the number of home and family and love, and it has a very loving and caring quality. It’s also about giving up for others, nurturing, protecting and teaching, which is why it’s also strongly associated with family in general and parenthood and motherhood in particular.
◗ Mantra – Repeat the mantra Hum 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…

The stage is set for you to clear the air with someone who has been getting on your nerves. This sounds like a good thing, and it can be. However be careful you’re not too hard on someone – clearing the air is one thing, alienating someone because you’re too harsh is another! If you’re single and looking for new love, you will be more motivated this month. Attached? Mars in your Love Zone while Venus reverses could go either way. You and your partner could refind the spark – but could also end up arguing, so read the first sentence of this forecast again!
