Horoscope for March 10, 2017

Sunstar Banner


 Tip of the Week:  The Full Moon in Virgo on Sunday, March 12 at 7:54 am occurs in the morning light of Daylight Savings Time. More importantly, it is the culmination of the Solar Eclipse on February 26th. Sun, Mercury, Chiron, Neptune and the Lunar South Node were all huddled closely in Pisces in the New Moon chart. What it reveals is a theme of healing. Specifically, self-deception, denial, escapism and addictions of any kind are highlighted. Combined with Venus Retrograde, the past couple of weeks have been a rather heavy, a foggy, confusing and depressing period overall. However, the energy of the Full Moon on the 12thand Mercury entering Aries on March 13 will serve to activate a sharper focus and dynamic pace. The Sun entering Aries early marking Spring Equinox on March 20 at 3:23 am PDT will add fuel to this fire.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Many dreams are festering in your mind. A pioneering impulse has been strong but has been contending with an urge to retreat. Now are ambitions are on the rise again. Soon your drive will be in full force. The biggest challenge may be to decipher what you want or who.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20): Mars in your sign now is activating your drive. You may, however, feel like you are awake in a dream. Nothing is clear or obvious. Call it a thick patch of fog. It will not last but while you are in it proceeding very slowly is wise. Before the week is out you will see clearly again.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): You have entered a rather complex period. You feel the need and desire to retreat. At least you want to lay low. You may feel impatient and short tempered. Disturbing energies may be met with a sharp retort. This will become increasingly true this week and over the next several. Seek refuge.

 Cancer (June 21-July 22): The strong influence of Pisces has been a challenge for many there past few weeks. While it will continue for a little while longer, there will be a break from the full grip of it this week. Already you have begun to scout to see through it all. You will begin to take new initiatives this week.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): The urge to engage in some manner of spring cleaning is underway. You want to purge the past. This could manifest as clearing the clutter or you may feel inclined to do a body cleanse of some kind. But this urge will end soon. Already your ambitions are rising. Either way, you want to break free.

 Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22): Relationship involvements of late have either been idyllic, dreamlike and sweet or vague and vacant or perhaps swinging from one side to the other. Fortunately, a creative impulse is kicking in. It will require that you give more or try harder than you have perhaps for some time.

 Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22): Your ambitions are on the rise again. Over the past few weeks anyway, you have been contending with people, situations, and your own health and enthusiasm levels and so on. It may have felt like you were working hard but not really getting ahead. You are about the shift into lower gear for more traction.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The desire to engage your creative abilities has been strong, but do you feel inspired? Some cycles are more complex and therefore less productive than others and this probably feels like one of those. Despite sincere efforts, the pace has been slow. Reach out to appreciate others and to gain needed inspiration.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Rising out of a sinking feeling has perhaps been a challenge these past few weeks. Despite sincere efforts to push through, it may feel like you are stuck, at least in terms of productivity. This should begin to change this week. But you will need plenty of play time too.

 Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Despite efforts to see the bigger picture, you may be noticing that the details of daily reality are getting in the way. At best, you can see the signature of deeper realities and higher powers in the small things. No, I am not referring to ‘Made in China’.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Change is not just in the air, it is on the ground. Circumstances are pushing you to have a reality check. This may simply amount to recognizing the pace and implications of the changing times. That said, the scenario is not that simple. Your focus will get sharper this week.

 Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): The Full Moon will bring things into greater clarity. You may not want to see everything you are being shown, however. Fortunately, your energy levels should rise as the week progresses, connecting your ambition to your drive. Yet, the pace may be slower than usual, so pace yourself.
