Mars Ruler of Aries
Mars is the ancient God of War, who was also known as Aries. This planet is yang in nature and it is the complement of Venus. It is of masculine/positive polarity and has an outgoing nature. Mars is a planet of energy, desire, and action. It represents war or struggles within you or within a relationship. This planet is closely associated with our physical energy and rules our animal essence. Some descriptive words of Mars’ energy are initiative, assertiveness, desire, aggressiveness, executive ability, impulsiveness, resistance, courage, adventurousness, rashness, (which may sometimes lead to accidents) and aggressive sexual love.
The symbol of Mars is essentially an inverted symbol for Venus (love, peace, and harmony). It represents the cross of materiality with focused energy overriding the circle of spirit.
General Overview of Month: March will have more energy than the two preceding months. There will be much activity, learning, getting ahead in business and interesting partnerships. There will also be a warm feeling of home, family and those close to you. Good luck starts on the 10th when Mercury goes Direct and the rest of the month is retrograde free! We finally get a break.

ARIES – March 21 – April 19 ruled by Mars
Friendships, clubs, groups, associations or classes seem to give you the comfort you are looking for through meeting new people and finding exciting ways to express yourself. You may be surprised by a few friendships ending and luckily new ones are starting as well. You would welcome group projects. Career and friends are your priorities. Being sure that you use a more compassionate tone of voice with those you are in contact with will go a long way in getting what you want. Try to be a better listener so you can understand what the other person is really feeling or wanting. Your interest in getting outside and doing something fun after being thwarted by the winter weather is becoming a priority. It’s almost as if you want to go out with friends and groups that you haven’t had time for in the past. You also would mind meeting some new friends to spice up the pot! There also seems to be many frustrations and limitations in home life that you wish to handle and change. Relationships are going in a different direction. You want to find people who can reciprocate your generosity and you want to start receiving instead of always being the giver. Arians will learn many karmic lessons along the way, but once you realize that the only thing constant in life is change – you will be in a different mindset to attract new opportunities and embrace the fun in life.
TAURUS – April 20 – May 20 ruled by Venus
You are extremely sensitive now, so don’t take life too seriously, especially if others say something that may seem like an attack on your character or integrity. It may have just been your perception. Many issues are on your mind and you wish you could just make one good decision that will plan the rest of your life. Family matters may escalate if you tell them things they don’t really want to know. Be sure that everyone is on a “need to know” basis you’re your life will go much more smoothly. Your career seems to be doing very well with all of the changes going on around you. You have seen to shine now, so keep doing whatever you are doing. Be aware of someone who does not have your best interest at heart. Stop any possible gossip immediately so it does not linger around the office. Dealing with many issues now keeps your mind racing in many directions. You may experience some insomnia, not because you are ill, but that left brain of yours thinks of too many scenarios and too many “what ifs.” You need to slow down, make a list and follow it. You are too scattered at the present time. Money seems to be an issue so careful budgeting makes sense now because it seems as if there will be many unusual or unexpected expenses in the weeks ahead.
GEMINI – May 21 – June 20 ruled by Mercury
What a great time to rediscover some of the old beliefs you may have forgotten or just didn’t have time for any longer. Spirituality is your goal now to keep yourself centered and focused on the important things in your life. This should be a very spiritual cycle for all Gems who have been having a difficult time in many areas. Learn a new modality or philosophy. Expand all of your horizons. You have everything to gain now so be persistent and make a plan to get what you need and want in your life. You are like a sponge ready for all the information you can absorb. Being open to everything will bring many new educational and personal opportunities. The eclipses have not been as positive as you would have liked so this is more as a time for planning, finishing up projects and chores, organizing, doing foundation work, changes in thinking processes and attracting new, positive energy. This is a time to study metaphysics and parapsychology as well as taking many new classes for recreation or additional formal education for employment purposes. Creativity is your way out of this crazy energy. Make something beautiful; spend time writing your life story, a blog or add something clever on to your Facebook page for all to share. Do artwork or photography. Get out and be creative and flexible and by doing that, you will start to change the vibrations around you to a more positive and loving nature.
CANCER – June 21 – July 22 ruled by the Moon
There may be a lot of changes going on in your home. You want to make things very cozy and want to eliminate any clutter that has accumulated over the winter months. This is an outstanding time for Cancerians to make some positive moves whether it is in business or school. Seriously look at whatever it is that you were planning to do in the next few months. You may want to shorten your timeframe if it seems right. What a great time for many opportunities to be presented to you and the good news is, no matter which opportunity you grab, it will be the right one for you. Adversely, if you don’t grab onto opportunities, they will pass you by and never return. You are thinking in a more fanciful way and can talk your way in and out of any situation, but don’t make this a habit. Cancerians have luck on their side, but you are also super sensitive now. Don’t take everything too personally; not everyone is out to get you. Be prepared for partnership issues if your stubborn side rears its ugly head. You are too good to let other people suffer for your insensitivity to their needs so be compassionate and loving when it is appropriate. Love issues may be tricky now so just be a good listener and think about your responses before making it worse by being sarcastic or unsympathetic.
LEO – July 23 – August 22 ruled by the Sun
Communication is the key this month. It’s all about your self-expression and thought processes. This may also be a time in which you would like to take a few day trips or weekend getaways. Be sure to include those you love in discussions about your plans and your thoughts. There seem to be a few issues that are bothering you now. Communication with family is the most important one. Make sure they understand what you are saying and don’t assume that everyone is on the same page. Then there is balancing your budget and checkbook. This is a great time to buy what you need and not what you want. You may also want to sell things that are no longer needed on eBay or Craigslist, etc., to get some of the money you need to pay off debt or buy what you currently need. A garage sale would also be a good idea when the weather gets warmer in the spring. Also, you can donate items to a charity and get a tax receipt without all of the headaches of setting up and putting away your items from a garage sale. Health improves as you take care of any medical issues with doctor visits, a better diet, and an exercise program. People are interfering with your goals so some slight agitations occur. Take a yoga class, go to a spa, relax and chill out a little. As usual, you take things much too seriously and you need to just “let it go.” In the scheme of things, is anything that important if it gets you ill?
VIRGO – August 23 – September 22 ruled by Mercury
It seems you are very interested in privacy, home comfort, and security now. Your home is becoming a sacred space where you feel the troubles of the day just melt away. Homelife has its issues, but all in all, things are going in a much better direction. Good luck in the home is following you around. Is it that you really need a romantic partner in your life? Partnerships seem to change, so if you are in a bad one, the energy is helping you make those tough decisions. If you are not in one, you may find yourself dating more than usual and actually meet someone of substance that can be long term. Do you want a change of residence or do you want to redecorate? There is a lot going on in your life and you really need to be more determined and adamant than usual. You need to follow your lists (and not just make them). You should also stop being so easily upset and just see things with your stereotypical Virgo logic. Once you handle things in this extremely detailed and focused way, things will get much easier. Children and home life may not help you get what you need out of life at the moment, but there is a lot of good intention. You are needed and loved, so if you can’t do everything that you want to do at this time, give it a longer time frame for your dreams and goals to come to fruition.
LIBRA – September 23 – October 22 ruled by Venus
Playful tendencies are shown more than usual. You use talents you never thought you had and try many new things. After not understanding why the last two years have really been difficult in many areas of life, you now are feeling the weight being lifted off of your shoulders. The obstacles, concerns, issues, limitations, and responsibilities that you have carried alone for some time will now be shared with other family members or friends, or you will finally figure out a logical solution to your issues. The procrastination in deciding your future has to stop. You need to be more decisive in choosing the life path that is good for you. You may feel somewhat depressed or unhappy from time to time until you adjust to the fact that this is a transitory period going from a negative to positive time and it may take a little while to adjust emotionally. It will be gone before you know it, so just let it go. You can be extremely sensitive now so try to toughen up and understand that most people don’t mean to be as sarcastic and offensive as they are, but before they know it, stupid things come out of their mouths. Accept apologies so your life will be less traumatic. Partnerships can be disheartening, but you can listen to your partner’s concerns and try to be more patient and all will be fine. Both of you need to work on your relationship.
SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21 ruled by Pluto
This month is all about wellness and nutrition. It also highlights assistance you may give to others; however, make sure you have healthy boundaries or you will be overwhelmed with all the requests that are made of you. Love life is interesting now and things seem to be changing in a very positive direction. You can get closer to the one you love and your whole relationship can go to a new level if you want it to. Your intimate relationship is really getting a blast of positive energy, so be sure you accept any overtures of romance and love from your partner. You can be more romantic as well. Both parties have to agree on what they really want and then work towards whichever changes you want to bring into the relationship. Children can be involved in helping you make a good life for yourself so give them a chance to see what they have in store for you. Family issues need to be taken care of and working together with your partner would be a blessing. Your ambition and drive make you a formidable challenge this month. You know what you want and you are trying to go after it. Career is stable so whatever you do for a living will continue to bring in a salary and keep your finances balanced as long as you don’t go overboard on impulse buying.
SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 21 ruled Jupiter
Nutrition, diets, letting go of a few unwanted pounds seem to be on your mind. Work-life is important now so be sure to give it your all. This could be a time for promotions or getting more responsibilities for more money. Taking care of your health is very important. Have you been trying to lose weight and exercise? There is absolutely no energy in New Year to start your life over (unless January 1 is your birthday), so visualize and re-examine what you would like to bring into your life to make it easier than it has been. Your vitality is down and it may just be that you are trying to accomplish too much and not giving yourself enough rest and time to unwind. You may even be thinking in some negative terms and thinking that things just will not turn around for you, but they will. Just give the universe a little time to process your requests and get ready to be happy and healthy in no time at all. You may be anxious about career issues so just try to do your job and be a bit more flexible when it comes to your work. Of course, money needs to be looked into and you need to find ways of tightening your belt for the short term so that money will be there in the long term. Downsizing is a good way to save money if that works for you. There may be some changes in your workload, so be prepared for it by resting and eating properly.
CAPRICORN – December 22 – January 20 ruled by Saturn
March holds relationships in high regard, such as your marriage, intimate relationships, and business partnerships. Be very honest about your feelings now. Some contracts may have to be signed and there is a hint of divorce in the air for those who have been sitting on the fence for a long time about dissolving a partnership. Partnerships are changing and things may seem to be going in different directions than you had planned. Stay focused on your romantic goals and love interests. Are the changes better for you and your partner? Do things seem to be working out for the best? Only you can judge what needs to be done and you are going to have to be the one to bring up any subject that feels uncomfortable or needs to be changed in a positive way. Love life is also a mystery. One day it’s hot, the next day it’s cold. People are getting fed up with this yo-yo energy around you, so make up your mind about what you really want to do and then just do it. Even though things seem very distressing, things will eventually calm down. No one needs more drama in their lives so it may be time that you release the people who are always draining you and wanting you to help them out without giving you any reciprocal energy. You must be strong and learn how to say no. Examples may be by telling them that tonight you are busy, you are on your way out to dinner, you are entertaining friends/family at your home or just ask if you may you call them next week when you have more time, etc. Even though Pluto is bringing drama into your life, you will be triumphant in moving forward in the way you want to go. If changes come to your workplace, do not fear new opportunities. Welcome them.
AQUARIUS – January 21 – February 19 ruled by Uranus
March is all about releasing negative feelings and thoughts in your life. With the spring will come many new beginnings so you should be ready for them. This is a great time to get an additional formal education or attend lectures, seminars, workshops, etc., and listen to audiobooks or watch DVDs of movies, shows, and documentaries that you were not able to see in the past. With all the running around, you need some downtime and you must take care of yourself. See the doctor if it has been a long time since you had a physical and get peace of mind that everything is okay. Travel plans may be coming later in the year. You want to get out of your humdrum routine and see exotic places or at the very least, just get away from your current surroundings. This is also a good time to add creativity with the hope of relaxing to your otherwise very crazy life. There will be lots of time for creating works of art, writing down important events in your life and even figuring out what the future has in store for you. There is a new road ahead of you filled with wonder, new beginnings, and wonderful possibilities. When things hit a speed bump in life, it is time to take a leap of faith. You will succeed in all that you do this month if you actually get out and do it.
PISCES – February 20 – March 20 ruled by Neptune
Time to focus on your goals, especially in business. You may be asked to take some workshops or training for work; this will be a good thing to add to your resume so learn all you can. Career is energized and you are focused on new beginnings on the job. You may be called on to train someone or may get more responsibility for more money, so be as helpful as possible while setting some boundaries and limits of what you will and will not do. Don’t be the proverbial doormat that you have allowed yourself to become by doing everything for everyone else and have no leftover time for yourself. A new romance is always a possibility as well as continued luck and changes pushing you into a new life. Others find you sexually attractive now so date the one who you intuitively feel is the right one for you. You feel that you are more attractive and in shape and want to continue with improving yourself on so many levels, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically. If you are holding onto a job or relationship just because “it is comfortable,” it is time for you to do something about it. Stop living in a boring and routine life and take a stretch to see how life can help you get back into the ball game. You are a wonderful creation of the universe and all of the issues and doubts that have been on the back shelf, need to be taken down, dealt with and cast aside.
