your Free Weekly Horoscope for March 20 — March 26, 2016
Venus and Neptune are conjunct in Pisces on March 20 bringing about a heightened sensitivity to beauty, compassion, and unconditional love. It’s wonderful for artistic inspiration and for an ideal love with another to whom we feel connected at a deep soul level.
Mercury enters Aries (March 21 – April 15). With Mercury in Aries, we may be outspoken and express ourselves with courage, strength, and energy. Our actions are impulsive and not always sufficiently thought through. Our direct speech might alienate some people around us, but may also draw new, fast friends to us. Curiosity is heightened and our mental abilities sharpened. We could, however, quickly jump to conclusions without having all the facts in hand and later regret harsh, hasty judgments.
Full Moon in Libra on March 23 is an important time to just let go of those unsettled feelings about your friendships. Friends will share their strengths as well as their weaknesses. Refuse to contribute to the weakness of a friend; nurture friendships with patience, understanding and encouragement. In addition to the Full Moon on Wednesday, a penumbral lunar eclipse will be visible in almost all parts of the world. This phenomenon occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon align in an almost straight line. When this happens, the Earth blocks some of the Sun’s light from directly reaching the Moon’s surface, and covers a small part of the Moon with the outer part of its shadow, also known as the penumbra. This lunar eclipse is a time to completely reconstruct our sense of self in the new dimension that will reveal itself with the solar eclipse. It offers new beginnings and a renewed understanding of the world around us and our place in it.
Mercury in Aries trine Mars in Sagittarius (March 24 – March 25) is a time of direct, dynamic communication. Exchanges with others are open, truthful and productive. It’s excellent for starting new projects requiring stamina and involving physical energy.
Venus in Pisces opposite Jupiter in Virgo (March 25 – March 27) brings on a significant awareness of the dynamics of attraction and wealth. Money related tests and troubles in relationships are often a factor under this aspect. However, Venus opposite Jupiter increases awareness of the need for joy in relationships.
Saturn turns retrograde on March 25 and will remain so until August 13. During this period, there may be unwanted delays and hindrances in your life. Everything you do will ask for more effort and hard work on your part. Progress in life is delayed so re-evaluate your plans and strengthen your physical and mental self, but Saturn retrograde will help you to come up with new plans that will be productive once the retrograde cycle is over.
It may be difficult to engage in romance, particularly when communicating, as it might seem that something is always getting in the way of basic pleasures with Venus in Pisces square Saturn in Sagittarius (March 25 – March 26). Perhaps it is best not to get bent out of shape over some people’s need to create restrictions in order to protect their own sense of security while love related troubles are being worked out. No matter how much one prioritizes a focus on love, it is still likely to be misinterpreted on some level during Venus square Saturn.

Free Weekly Horoscope for your Sign
Aries: The Sun moves into Aries on March 21, signaling a positive shift in your mood and energy levels. Now is the time to become more active and motivated. There may be a stumbling block though, around March 23 when the lunar eclipse is likely to bring forth relationship issues. This is an opportune time to clear the air with someone, to state your case, to be gently assertive and to try to create a win-win situation for all involved. Allow a spirit of adventure to carry matters forward; perhaps all you need to improve conflict or clear confusion is to see things from a higher vantage point, to widen your perspective, to experiment or to try a different approach.
Taurus: The lunar eclipse falls in your zone of health and work on March 23. This could reflect a little bit of tiredness. If so, get all the rest you can. If your body protests, listen to it and try to give it what it wants. This eclipse is your opportunity to clear any confusion around your health or your work. There might be job changes or changes in your job environment. If you employ others, there is instability that you will have to deal with. In addition, siblings and sibling figures in your life are having dramas that may need your attention. By going within – perhaps meditating or listening to your intuition – you will emerge with the answers you need to address all issues.
Gemini: It’s difficult to be effective in the world at large if there is confusion or disharmony within. The lunar eclipse on March 23 asks you to integrate the various parts of your life so that they can come together and work effectively as a whole. If, for example, there are people in your life who are at odds with each other, this likely reflects something that is at odds within yourself. If your home or your work isn’t a true reflection of who you are, this too will be difficult to fully integrate. You may need to cast off one or two things that no longer feel appropriate. This eclipse should help you cut through any confusion, providing a clear view of what needs to change.
Cancer: This is a week to seek out new pastures and to both re-educate and re-awaken yourself to possibilities and new avenues of thought. It may seem difficult to know what to do, but once you get to the lunar eclipse on March 23, things should be much clearer and exciting. While it may alienate you from some people and things you once felt at home with, it is an acknowledgement that you are changing and growing as a person. Who knows, some may follow your lead – you could be the pioneer of your peers, the one that sees the light first and acts upon that, thus inspiring others. You may need to take an ethical or moral stand on a particular issue, and ultimately you are the one to provide leadership on issues that are contentious and emotional.
Leo: The lunar eclipse on March 23 asks you to have faith in something. That could be a person, a situation, an outcome, a plan or a dream. Whatever it is, you need to believe in it and commit. Only when we commit do things happen, because then we align ourselves with the commitment, giving it strength and power. This means that you can’t play it safe, hedge your bets or keep postponing. First off, though, you need to check that your endeavor is in alignment with your heart. There’s no point in doing something that you don’t truly believe in. As you move toward that which is in alignment with your true self, it will be much easier to have faith in it. And when you have faith, you can move mountains.
Virgo: The lunar eclipse on Wednesday suggests it’s time for a new financial vision. The positive aspect of this eclipse is increased clarity, so previously confusing issues will clear up and you can begin to see things differently. This could feel like a very transformative week, and for a while it might seem as though everything is up in the air, but once the dust settles, you’ll be able to see that things are assembling themselves in a new order. Go with the changes and be open to doing things differently, especially where money is concerned.
Libra: With a lunar eclipse in your sign on March 23, it will be impossible to keep sweeping things under the carpet. This week emotions and issues are likely to bubble up to the surface, especially in your relationships and this eclipse is an opportune time to confront and resolve certain problems. Any area of confusion and uncertainty is likely to be illuminated, but you may also come to realize that no matter how good a partnership seems, there are certain things that you can only do on your own. A little independence may be the antidote to relationship problems.
Scorpio: It’s time for some serious letting go. The lunar eclipse on March 23 is preparing you for a new chapter in your life, but you can’t move forward until you release all that you no longer need. Use this perfect time for clearing to tackle cluttered closets and get rid of stuff you no long need. As this also applies on an emotional level, you may find yourself wondering whether it’s time to move on. The same ruthless philosophy can be directed toward your habits and patterns, pushing you to release anything that no longer serves you. Your health and work ethic will benefit from releasing energy drains. Take this time to discard anything past its “sell-by-date.”
Sagittarius: The lunar eclipse on Wednesday is likely to bring forth a situation in which you feel like an outsider. Perhaps you feel excluded or different. Maybe you feel you don’t fit, or you feel you don’t have the confidence to push forward into joining with the happy throng. Whatever the exact situation, feelings of alienation can be alleviated by a little courage and a dash of self-belief. Of course, it is also possible that you genuinely don’t fit in a particular situation; in this case, the lunar eclipse asks you to be honest about where you belong. Perhaps this is the time to find your tribe, to connect with like minded souls who share your vision. This eclipse shines the spotlight on groups, friends and organizations, and it will help alleviate any confusion associated with these matters, thus helping you find your place in the world.
CapricornCapricorn: The lunar eclipse at the top of your chart on Wednesday should alleviate any confusion regarding your career or direction in life. First, though, you may need to stop clinging to the past. A little courage is necessary to help you let go and move on. Maybe you need to face up to the fact that the past is gone. Maybe you’re carrying emotional baggage that is only weighing you down. It’s time to let go of some stuff. Keep your precious memories, but bring yourself into the present; this is where energy and potential lie.
Aquarius: The lunar eclipse on March 23 challenges you to think differently so that you can break out of your confines into a new environment. It’s all too easy to become comfortable with what we’re used to, even if it’s not in our best interests. This concept can be observed with animals raised in captivity. When offered freedom, they don’t take it. So the interesting question to ask yourself this week is, in what way are you holding yourself captive? Is there a path to freedom that you’re not seeing or taking? Begin to look at your life and your options in a bigger way and realize that whatever has been your own personal cage, can now be left behind.
Pisces: The lunar eclipse on Wednesday is a great opportunity to release your pain and transform an aspect of yourself or your life. Perhaps you’re going through a rebirth or change in your beliefs. Maybe you’re beginning to take hold of the reins of your life and feel more in control. Financially too, this is an important time to create greater balance. Let your desire to move forward and fulfill your purpose be the driving force for financial and personal changes. In other words, focus on what you want to achieve in life, and everything else will fall into place.
