Your Weekly Overview:
Should you stick to the rules, or bend them to your will? On Wednesday, March 13, spunky Jupiter in Sagittarius plays “Truth or Dare” with the nebulous Pisces Sun. It’s going to be hard for anyone to just roll with the tide during this transit. But trying to fight it could pull you into murky waters. Both Jupiter and the Sun are known for their swagger, so be prepared for power struggles and breathtaking displays of ego. And in the libertine signs of Sagittarius and Pisces respectively, free-spirited energy could spiral into anarchy! Before unleashing any renegade moves, familiarize yourself with the protocols—especially since Mercury is only midway through its March 5-28 retrograde.
Looking ahead, on Friday, the moonwalking messenger planet will form the week’s second square to Jupiter. This could confuse communication even further, so be ultra-mindful about anything you say, text or tweet! Even if you wholeheartedly disagree with certain policies, find out WHY they are in place before trampling all over them. True, this whole kit and caboodle is ready to be upgraded. But you want to call for a sea change with Piscean sensitivity. Find out the historical background of the situation you’re trying to transform so you can honor what has come before you. And avoid alienating the gatekeepers as you come crashing in. Dig deeper for empathy, but not to a point where you are bending to some archaic—or, worse, discriminatory—system. If you’ve been relying on gut checks alone (which are definitely strong during Pisces season), scholarly Jupiter in Sagittarius can help you back up your intuitive hits with more than just an educated guess. Study the situation like a legal beagle and private investigator rolled into one, and you’ll be on the path to victory—perhaps making history along the way!
The right balance of “hit the gas” and “ride the brakes” could come on Thursday, when speed racer Mars in Taurus harmonizes in a dynamic duet with slow-and-steady Saturn in Capricorn. Although these two planets operate at very different paces, they are both touring sensible earth signs—and in Thursday’s flowing trine (120-degree angle), they’ll have each other’s back. This is not the week to zip ahead without a solid plan in place. Saturn is the ruler of time and doesn’t mind being the tortoise to Mars’ hare. Use this planetary pairing to pop the hood and give those big ideas a tune-up so that everything is running like a well-oiled machine. After that, it will be easy to move the needle on stalled projects and relationships without “scratching the vinyl” in haste. Make sure that anything you do has a sound strategy behind it while also leaving room for some inspired Thursday spontaneity.
ARIES (March 21st – April 20th)
You will have to make a choice as a close relationship will take on a new direction. You have an outcome in mind, but you will consider others before making your decision. A change at work isn’t as bad as you were expecting.
TAURUS (April 21st – May 21st)
A friend or colleague is relying on you for everything, but they always seem disappointed no matter how much you do for them. You wish they were more self-reliant. You need to deal with a persistent financial problem that won’t go away.
GEMINI (May 22nd – June 21st)
You’re feeling stuck in a conflict between work commitments and family. Deep down, you know what you have to do but you know someone will be let down. Welcome news will arrive via email or a letter which includes an invitation.
CANCER (June 22nd – July 23rd)
After lots of misunderstandings, a friendship or love relationship will take time to get back to normal. The worst is over but a lot of things were said that you can’t take back. Discuss your future plans with your family for advice.
LEO (July 24th – August 23rd)
You are dreading some jobs that you have to do. The more you think about it, the worse it seems. The sooner you start, the quicker they will be completed. They won’t be as bad as you imagined. A friend is becoming more self-reliant.
VIRGO (August 24th – September 23rd)
A colleague will ask for your advice which will shock you, as they usually mock your ideas and suggestions. Be wary of saying too much as they can’t be trusted. You don’t lack friends but new opportunities will arise through networking.
LIBRA (September 24th – October 23rd)
A needy person wants your undivided attention and this will stop you from getting on with your usual plans. Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind and encourage them to stand on their own two feet. A friend surprises you.
SCORPIO (October 24th – November 22nd)
You can’t hear yourself think as neighbours, colleagues and friends are all asking you for advice and support. A group project is failing, and while others are quick to give up, you’re determined that quitting is not an option and want to get results.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd – December 21st)
You are struggling to settle into your normal routine due to your restless energy. Others will be annoyed as they can’t concentrate. Someone close is feeling neglected so encourage them to explain their thoughts and feelings.
CAPRICORN (December 22nd – January 20th)
This is a frustrating time for any trip or journey as you will face mix-ups, mishaps and delays. The thought about the destination could be the problem. Delay any appointments until you feel ready to deal with the problems and enjoy some peace.
AQUARIUS (January 21st – February 19th)
Use your energy to promote your ideas and plans to the fullest. Your approach will be infectious as you charm others into going along with your suggestions. Someone is waiting for a decision from you, and you can’t put it off any longer.
PISCES (February 20th – March 20th)
You have made mistakes along the way and now feel you’ve let someone down badly by making wrong choices. An apology is due. A job you thought was completed will suddenly come back to life and you’re under pressure to make progress.
