Key themes: partnerships, reassessing and asserting your boundaries, vulnerability, asking for what you need, opening up to new experiences.

Dear Virgo, the month of March brings with it a great potential for growth and transformation as you navigate the ups and downs of your relationships and your personal journey. Remember to stay true to your values and your heart, and to prioritize your wellbeing, especially in the face of situations that can be draining.

As Mercury enters Pisces on the 2nd in your area of partnerships and commitments, you find yourself drawn to deeper and more meaningful connections. Mercury will be here until the 19th, moving you to communicate more openly and honestly with your loved ones. Don’t hold back from your need to express your emotions, it’s a powerful time for strengthening bonds, as long as you’re willing to be vulnerable and share your heart.

As the Full Moon arrives at your sign at 7:40 am EST on the 7th, you’re likely to feel a surge of energy and emotion that thrusts you forward. This Full Moon brings the potential for personal growth and self-discovery, and opens space for you to become more aware of your own needs and desires. Follow the inspiration to take bold action and make positive changes in your life, whether that means pursuing a new passion, starting a new project, or simply taking better care of yourself.

And just as you start to gain momentum, Saturn sets up camp in Pisces for the next two and a half years also in your area of partnership, bringing a new set of challenges to your close connections. Try not to stress. Don’t run away from what comes up, and do your best not to let it consume your energy levels and your focus. It may be tempting to withdraw or shut down, but remember that the most rewarding relationships are often the ones that are worth the effort.

Then on the 12th, Jupiter will join Chiron in the sign of Aries, bringing some depth and healing potential into all of the challenges you may be facing within your intimate relationships.

As Venus enters Taurus on the 16th in your area of adventures and philosophical pursuits, you’ll feel a renewed sense of optimism and inspiration. Venus will be here until April 11th, opening doors to new experiences in love, art and personal self-care. As you go out into the world, remember to stay grounded in your own values and priorities, and in the simple pleasures of life. Remember to slow down and breathe deep from time to time.

Mercury enters Aries on the 19th, followed by the beginning of Aries Season on the 20th and the New Moon (also in Aries) on the 21st, all of this in your area of intimacy and shared energy. This Season is definitely a time of deep transformation, so don’t shy away from the inner work. It’s a time to confront your fears and desires, and to learn to trust your intuition more fully. This time of the year always urges you to work on the places where things have been kept in hiding for far too long and are begging for your attention. What do you need to let go of in order to embrace new beginnings? You may also find yourself drawn to deeper, more intimate connections. With all that’s going on in this area of your life, it’s a beautiful time to open yourself up to the complex dynamics of love, trust, and vulnerability. Put yourself out there and ask for what you need.

Starting on the 23rd, and extending until June 11th, Pluto will be giving us a taste of its new chapter in the sign of Aquarius. For you, this great generational transit will affect your daily rituals and your habits. You’ll be faced with the need of letting go of old patterns that no longer work, embracing new ways of organizing and being present in your day-to-day life, and renewing the way you care for yourself.

The month begins to come to a close with Mars entering Cancer on the 25th in your area of friendships and the collective. This surge of martial energy will draw in new connections and collaborations that will counter all of the deep and maybe messy energy going on in your more intimate relationships. Mars will be here until May 20th, helping you to connect with groups that align with your current values and passions.

This may be a complex month, so try to have fun, love yourself, honor your boundaries, honor the pain that brings transformation, don’t shy away from life, and enjoy all of the new and exciting people and situations that want to meet you!
