Spring won't be the only thing in the air this month (!!!)
Welcome to YourTango's monthly love horoscope column from astrologer Ellen Whitehurst! Look up your astrological sign to see what kind of love and romance March is bringing your way. Please note: the predictions provided here follow Western astrological dates.
ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
Loving Venus, Goddess of Love, will pass through your 11th House of Friends and Groups (plus, Hopes and Dreams) promising that you will meet some new (a very special spirit). Of course, you will need to get out and go to the places where like-minded people gather. On March 7, The Moon and Venus will hook up in that same place to help you meet a new bff. Lucky for you, this bff may just have someone significant that they want you to meet, too.
How's that for mixing and mingling?
You have some really good news heading your way when Jupiter and Pluto form a beautiful trine on March 16. Why? Well, both planets will be in earth signs like your own, which is known for sensuality and passion. Oh, not to mention expansive and generous Jupiter is still occupying your 5th House of True Love, while Pluto is feeling frisky and sexy (yep, all at once).
Three words for you: oooooh-la-la. Psst, those might be whispered in your ear soon.
Mercury the Messenger and the sizzling Sun will set off for your 11th House of Friends and Groups on March 19 and 21. They'll each be wearing assertive Aries on their sleeve and this could mean that fireworks will fly, especially amongst a group that you've been keeping company with. Aries is a passionate sign, so someone you have only been dreaming about platonically in the past might all of a sudden come to the forefront and take on a different demeanor. So you may suddenly find this person appealing (and they might feel the same!).
If you've been dealing with a romance and/or relationship that hasn't been going so well lately, you might decide that it's time to call it a day on March 4 or 5. BUT (!!) before you cut ties, make sure that you really want to move on. Of course, if there is any sort of abuse going on, whether physical, mental or emotional, then get out pronto. Otherwise, if there's a way to make it work, consider giving it one more try before packing up and leaving.
The 8th House rues intimate relationships, so charming Venus's journey through here could have a terrific upside to it. Pisces planets dissolve boundaries so you and your sweetie will share some special, tender, and almost mystical moments. Speaking of romance — the intimate energies you'll experience will be super romantic — one of your specialties. March 26 in particular will bring you a major dose of it.
Simply magic (so go ahead and whip out your wand).
By the 13th of the month, the Sun, Venus, and your ruling planet (Mercury) will all join a planetary party hosted by dreamy Neptune; they'll meet up inside of Pisces, while they all light up your 7th House of Partners. You're very aware that you have a propensity to see the best in others and wanting to fix the ones that might exhibit a flaw (or two). But on March 14, a certain situation with authority figures could arise and your efforts to help a loved one will be futile. Just try not to beat yourself up for it and instead, do your best to see the best within.
If you are single and ready to mingle, that feeling may be set to change — and that may happen fairly quickly (when the time comes). Your ruling planet, lovely Venus, is making her way through your own 5th House of True Love and Romance with every intention of activating Aquarius (the sign that belongs to unpredictable and electric Uranus). Needless to say, that means that someone quite unusual could be heading your way shortly — perhaps, under odd or unusual circumstances.
What more can we say? Just keep your eyes peeled.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
I know that you're getting used to having people hang around you who are considered outcasts or even strays — and maybe even animals who fit that same description. Dreamy and woozy Neptune have been on duty in your 5th House of True Love for some time now, encouraging you to take in and/or defend people who might be called the underdog.
But I promise you this: it really will be lovely as so many people appreciate your efforts — just be sure that no one takes advantage of all of your big-hearted achievements and energies.
You tend to think that life really is just a box of chocolates and so you're always looking for playmates to share those goodies with you. Actually, that isn't ever all that hard for you to do since people enjoy being around you. However, this month you're due to come across some truly unusual types who might just take the time to show you a thing or two about enjoying life.
Look to March 2 for someone quite different from you to cross your path — big fun is on the way!
On March 14, your ruling planet, serious and practical Saturn, will get into a bit of brew with Venus and Mercury. Now, fiery Mars will be on Saturn's team, so if someone has offended you, sweet words just won't cut it. If one of you really wants to make nice, it requires you to actually admit that you were wrong, before you can move on to making things more loving and all around better for each of you.
A Lunar Eclipse arrives on March 23, all done up in partner-oriented and people-pleasing Libra. This lunation will lighten up your 9th House of Far Away Travel and Long Lost Lovers, so if you have a sudden urge to pack your bags and go find a significant other from your past (no matter how far away they are), think before you leap. Or at the very least call first and make sure that your intentions will be appreciated. If they are welcomed? Then go ahead and pack your bags, but don't forget to bring the blouse that has your heart on its sleeve.
Lovely Venus, the Goddess of Love herself, will slide into your sign on March 12. This will be just a few days after a Solar Eclipse in your sign, so if you are single, some potential bait is heading your way. They are both romantic and attractive, but you will need to make sure that you're seeing them clearly. If you are already attached, you can count on your partner to be much more sympathetic, understanding, and helpful to you, as well.
Either way you go, enjoy!
