Jump start your month with a little love advice!
Aries (March 21 to April 20): Feeling a little restless and disconnected lately? Or maybe you've been feeling like you'd rather be anywhere else than where you are? Not to worry, as this isn't some new cycle or phase that's set to hang around. Rather, it's the result of a pack of Pisces planets partying in your 12th House of Privacy. See, you're not becoming a hermit after all, it's just the planets pushing you to stay on the down low even if that’s not your usual state Aries. This too shall pass and, then, as the Sun starts to shine on your own sign it will breathe a breath of fresh air into your love life while also helping to clear up any confusing situations. Speaking of breathing – you'll be exhaling a big sigh of relief on March 13 when some surprising and excellent news will make your day. Heck, it might even make your month. Look to the past to feather your fabulous (and romantic!) future.
Taurus (April 21 to May 21): An increased sense of confidence and self-esteem this month will spill over and create an improvement in all of your intimate relationships. The Full Moon that rises on March 16 will lighten and brighten your bonds with friends and lovers too. Now, there is one more item on this month's agenda that you might want to be aware of too. You know that person that you've been spending a good deal of time with but only think of in a platonic sort of way? You may find out that they weren't thinking that same way. This friend will bring big benefits – to your love life that is – if you let them. Go ahead and give it a shot and you might find that you have been overlooking this big bang theory.
Gemini (May 22 to June 21): As the crocus creep through the snowy earth this month, you too are about to feel a rebirth and renewal in your love life, even if there's no one significant and special taking up real estate in your heart right now. That could change around mid-month. In the early going, attached or not, you might find yourself revisiting recent decisions regarding relationships especially since on March 1, impulsive, aggressive and passionate Mars will get stuck in stall as it turns retrograde. In your particular case this warrior planet will be appearing to move backward in your 5th House of True Love, Creativity, Romance, Kids and Fun (not necessarily in that order.) All this means is that if you find yourself a little 'meh' on the romance front in the early going, just remember that this too shall pass. As aforementioned, it just might pass when you meet someone spectacular mid-month or even see some renewed interest in an existing romance.
Cancer (June 22 to July 22): Spring is in the air and you might just see your love life beginning to blossom as well. Loved ones who don't live nearby are on your mind and in your heart this month courtesy of the Sun and Mercury the Messenger both traveling through your 9th House of Travel. You can probably count on sentimental memories and nostalgic thoughts of days gone by competing with you starting a new (renewed perhaps?) romantic journey of your own during these days – with March 1, 22 and 28 calling up recollections and reminiscences of childhood. Those remembrances of things past could also influence decisions that you will now make about your future. Or, they might just mean that an old flame is coming back into the picture to put the spark back in your love life. Either way, trust that all will be well, and it will.
Leo (July 23 to August 22): Mercury the Messenger, the planet that governs all things communication-related, is slowly starting to move forward again now and is doing that in your 7th House of Partners. So, if for the last three weeks you've been busy trying to rekindle an old relationship, Mercury's direct movement will now show you whether those were efforts that will reap positive and passionate rewards – or not. But then there's that pesky Mars turning retrograde on March 1 in partner-oriented Libra possibly putting a damper on any definite decision making. If you are already in an existing relationship this wouldn't be a good time to take that connection for granted, but, rather, recognize that you both need each other now. And if none of the aforementioned applies, then dress to impress (and do be sure to wear your heart on your sleeve too) because flirty and vivacious Venus is about to become your wing woman while also attracting plenty of attention your way.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22): Well, well, well Virgo, somebody's been getting busy – and I mean that in every sense of those word. You're going to stay that way in March too. You will not only experience an increase in social invites and activities but you might also be considering taking a major step in a recent relationship. If you started something steamy recently but were treating this relationship a bit too casually, you just might find that by March 13 this relationship – and your feelings – both soar into the stratosphere. But, before you start heading towards the moon and stars, even if you are positive this person is "THE ONE", try to have a meet and greet with someone who knows you well and who might be a bit more pragmatic and practical before you embark on your space odyssey. You can love with your heart, I'm only suggesting that you complement that by thinking (clearly) with your head. Just keep that in mind.
Libra (September 23 to October 22): Oh la la Libra, get ready to attract more amour than even you – or any of else – can handle. Flirty, loving, sensual and sexual Venus, the goddess of love herself (and your ruling planet to boot) will be taking up real estate in your 5th House of True Love starting on March 5. That's the date that you can start to prepare for a parade of admirers to go marching to the beat of YOUR heart. Of course, with Venus also sitting in visionary Aquarius, some of these suitors might not be the sort that you're ordinarily seeking out, but they will be quirky and tons of fun. Whether in a committed relationship or not, passions will run high this monthy and romantic relationships sparkle and shine. For the singletons out there, if I were a betting girl, I might lay a wage that you could find your soulmate – and they will be an answer to a prayer. Can I get an 'Amen?'
Scorpio (October 23 to November 22): Spring is in the air, and, will also be in your step this month as the Sun now sparkles and shines in your 5th House of True Love on March 1, and, then again on the 13th as well. Look, I get it, with serious and restrictive Saturn sitting in your 1st House of Self for the past few years, you haven't had much of a chance to get your ya yas out. Well, my friend, that all changes this month when the planets conspire to allow you to enjoy some good old school passion and romance. Anticipation is everywhere as are fantasies and dream dates too. You are going to attract your fair share of appreciation during these days too but will garner even more if you resolve to get out and about in the big, wide world. And, well, as if that weren't enough good stuff to share, then, there's this – Venus will be getting into an easy trine with her consort, Mars, on March 29. The importance of these two hooking up and hanging out won't be lost on you as someone who lights your fire will be along shortly to heat things up. Needless to say, this March is going to be hot!
Sagittarius (November 23 to December 21): Every once in a while someone comes along who makes you feel sexier, happier and much more desirable. If you are single and looking, this could be THAT month. With lovely and loving Venus, Lady Love, off in visionary Aquarius, if you're not attached now, you just might be before this month is through. March will come in like a lion and go out with your roaring like Katy Perry! And that will be because you are now going to meet a veritable cadre of potential companions – many of whom could be introductions from loved ones and/or well meaning friends. Get ready to pour out your heart to someone who wants to steal yours. If you are already in an existing relationship, this month's energies will support you too as you both want to take care of one another without eclipsing needs of your own. It's always good when everyone's on the same page. Either way, try to be an open book with your relationships and you'll definetly get what you ask for.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 20): Your love life will undergoing some gradual changes this month as Venus, the goddess of love, leaves your sign behind on March 5 in order to enter unpredictable and future-oriented Aquarius. This means that if you've just started something special with someone and have been enjoying the ride, well, you could hit a few bumps in the road now. One, or both of you, could be feeling a need for more freedom or, at very least, might be looking to spend more time apart. But like I said, this all happens slowly. The first half of the month in particular promises exciting, possibly even enthralling encounters, while the second half could open those aforementioned doors to annoying irritations. The bloom might be off the rose but if you still want to receive a dozen red ones next Valentine's Day you're going to have to roll up your sleeves and put some work into this partnership. If you do you will infuse a new spirit into this relationship while also initiating ways to bring about positive change. Trust me, you can work this out – work being the operative word here.
Aquarius (January 21 to February 19): If you've been feeling ignored or, gulp, even taken advantage of by your significant other then this will be the month that turns your frown upside down as that special someone in your life is about to show you just how much they really do appreciate you. You will also sincerely enjoy the company of friends and/or other loved ones especially during the middle of a sweet and sometimes even surprising month. With lovely and vivacious Venus sitting in your 1st House of Personality and Appearance you will attract admirers like flies to honey. And oh honey, how sweet that will be too. If single you should be on the lookout for the potential of restoring a lost love or magnetizing an entirely new one. If already attached, then, as previously mentioned, you will feel far more valued and treasured now. Believe me, they like you, they really like you.
Pisces (February 20 to March 20): Positive partnerships will prosper and thrive this month while other naysaying negative ones might just have to go by the wayside. The good news is that the choice of who goes where will be all yours. Your relationships are being influenced by the March 16 Full Moon Pisces, actually affecting all of your dealings with almost everyone around you – not just romantic partners. Now, that said, if you are single and waiting for Cupid to come by and empty his quiver, well, that might just happen around this same mid-month time too. This particular partner will make your heart go pitter patter while everything else around you will feel all fresh and new too. But only if all that fresh newness is accompanied by a good attitude as well. Otherwise, the stars are advising to start pulling away gradually with ease and with grace. There's someone better waiting in the wings. And those wings will allow your love life to soar.
