Weekly General Horoscopes (Updates on Monday) - 19 March 2018
Mars, planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos is your ruling planet so what he's doing is going to have a lot more influence on you. You find it a lot easier to tap into Mars' energy than any other planet, so are therefore quick to follow and embrace where he leads. This is why this week is likely to be even more game changing, especially professionally. For over the weekend Mars not only returned to your career sector, but has teamed up with both Pluto and Saturn here, for the first time in our lifetime. Meanwhile, the Moon's return to your income sector from Tuesday to Thursday, ahead of Venus' return next week also suggests this will have lucrative implications as well. What also makes this a big week for you is the Sun's return to Aries on Wednesday and the start of your birthday month and new solar year.
Chances are something will feel different from the get go and at first you might put this down to a case of Mondayitis. A combination of a passion for adventure that has kicked in over the weekend and nostalgic and reflective lunar vibes might make it hard to sweat the small stuff. Yet in both cases this is no passing fad. Mars' return to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery over the weekend has kicked off the most adventurous months ever. Mars is on a mission to see you embrace life to the full and he has plenty of support. At the same time, while the Moon will leave a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on Tuesday, this is just a day before the Sun returns here to begin the month long wind down of your old solar year. There is a concerted effort this week to get you to slow down, smell the coffee and embrace life's richer experiences.
While you are riding the wave of the weekend's New Moon in your career sector and the Sun won't leave until Wednesday, you will already feel that something has shifted. This is no longer about pushing yourself forward and with your professional dreams in safe hands, the focus shifts in the early days of the week to confronting old professional demons. Anything is possible and the professional gods will continue to support that throughout the coming year, but aligned with Chiron, planet of healing in his final days in your career sector, the Sun's focus is on flushing out all the things that can block you. At the same time the week takes on a more social feel and that is even before the Sun returns to your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking on Wednesday. By the weekend Mercury will be in retrograde motion here, offering a chance to make up for lost time or to reconnect with old friends.
While Mars' departure from your work sector over the weekend has left you with no planetary activity and no more arriving until later in the year, after over three years of near continuous planetary activity the momentum will continue. But what you will find is that the monkey that has been cracking the whip 24/7 for the last three years is gone, taking away a feeling of being rushed or continuously chasing your tail. Yet ironically, this will make room for professional growth and a turning on the income front. By the time the Sun returns to your career sector on Wednesday there will already be considerable momentum, but also a sense that it's time to bring things home. Yet while this means the Sun will leave an adventurous part of your chart on Wednesday, a strong mix of playful and adventurous forces will remain in play. A need for a balance between work and play remains, but has also become a lot easier.
Despite the fact that the week not only starts with adventurous lunar vibes in play but the Sun will join the four planets already there on Wednesday, life has become a lot busier. And there are signs that this is just the start of a major professional resurgence. It began with Mars' return to your work sector over the weekend, something that will always kick off the busiest six weeks in any two year period. Yet Mars has returned to team up with both Pluto and Saturn, for the first time in our lifetime. Just as Mars is settling in the Moon will move through your career sector from Tuesday to Thursday, ahead of Venus' return next week. With your professional instincts sharp there will be clues to major career developments ahead as well. With Mars gone from a playful part of your chart over the weekend and adventurous forces only in play for the next two months, all of a sudden a balance between work and play is serious business.
The week is dominated by two planetary shifts and the start of 2018's first Mercury retrograde phase, one of which has already taken place and the other two taking place during the week. The shift that has already taken place was Mars' departure from your home and family sector over the weekend and return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. This has changed the dynamics of the year, not only adding fuel to a more fun, playful, romantic and creative influence, but taking away a lot of the pressure you've been under. It is the Sun's departure from your relationship sector and return to your financial sector that will see the solar spotlight shift from your relationships and onto your financial situation and money matters. The Sun will spend his final days in your relationship sector working with Chiron to lay old relationship ghosts to rest. Even with the Sun's return to your financial sector you've got a chance to take your power back.
There is a lot more focus on your home, family and/or property matters this week than there already was, but with it a chance to make things happen and get things done. With both planets in your home and family sector before Mars' return over the weekend slowing down ahead of their retrograde turn next month, things may have been slowing down. Mars' return is a chance to fire things up and get them moving again. At the same time, even before the Sun's return to your relationship sector on Wednesday, there is a lot of focus on your relationships and this year for all of the right reasons. The Sun will return to find Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships in her last full week and Mercury slowing down, ahead of his retrograde turn on Friday. It is that retrograde turn that will give the planet of communication a chance to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.
There is a lot of change in the air this week and not just because we reach the equinox on Wednesday. This equinox is always defined by the Sun's departure from a playful part of your chart and return to your work sector, so consciously or subconsciously you have come to associate this time of year as the point where life becomes busier, especially on the job front. Yet the Sun returns to find things are already well underway, with Ceres' direct turn in your career sector on Monday adding to the professional surge taking place. However, when the Sun leaves, he leaves behind three planets who are determined to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play. In the meantime, the Moon makes an important visit to your relationship sector from Tuesday to Thursday. As the last visit before Venus returns next week there is a need to pay attention to any emotional responses triggered.
Mars' departure from Sagittarius over the weekend has brought all planetary activity to a close until later in the year and that will have a huge impact. With over three years of near continuous planetary activity, it is only when the pressure is gone that you'll realise it was there in the first place. For any planet to move through Sagittarius brings you to the start of a new cycle and after over three years you will be getting tired of always being at the starting line. Yet Mars' return to your income sector over the weekend has had major implications there and there are even clues this week to professional implications as well. It is the Moon's visit to your work sector from Tuesday to Thursday, the last before Venus' return next week that will bring clues of major developments ahead there as well. Yet as the Sun joins the four planets already in a playful part of your chart on Wednesday, there is still a balance between work and play.
You might start the week wondering what happened, with the week you're moving into feeling very different than any other week this year. Yet it's not life that has changed but you. You may put this down to feeling rejuvenated with time out over the weekend, yet it will be the case whether you took time out or not. The game changer was Mars' return to Capricorn over the weekend, something that will always fire up your passions and bring a surge in energy. After seven weeks in a nostalgic part of your chart, where there was a chance to recharge your batteries, you're ready to throw yourself into life. Or at least you will be when Mars' energy manages to seep its way into every nook and cranny. Mars has teamed up with Pluto here every other year since 2008, with the planets of war and revolution knowing how to work together. This year you have Saturn, your ruling planet who is giving you and them the power to move mountains if you have to.
Starting the week with the Moon in your communication sector is always an advantage, especially with Ceres turning direct in your relationship sector on Monday. However, this is just a taste of things to come, in a week where the communication gods dominate. With Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships spending her last full week in your communication sector, she will use the Moon's ability to give your emotional responses a voice to your advantage. Yet you also have Mercury, planet of communication on board and his retrograde turn here on Friday will even bring a chance to give the past and unsaid words a voice. The Sun's return to your communication sector on Wednesday will add even more weight to the focus on communication. Until then the Sun is wrapping up his month long visit to your income sector, making sure that you're aligned with the three planets staying behind.
After the weekend's New Moon in Pisces, you're ready to bring your birthday month to a close as you commit to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead. Yet until the Sun leaves Pisces on Wednesday he has one important mission and that is to make his last alignment with Chiron, planet of healing here for another four decades count. The Sun will spend his final days aligned with Chiron, turning the focus onto laying old ghosts to rest. Neptune, planet of dreams and your ruling planet is in Pisces until 2026, but won't be on his own until the end of next month. Chiron has been here since 2010, making it hard to move on because of an ongoing need to confront old ghosts. Yet with Chiron finally leaving next month, the Sun's alignment in the final days of your birthday month is a chance to lay old ghosts to rest or at least get them out in the open, where they can't survive.
