It’s a Pisces kind of month, Virgo, and that means there’s a lot of activity in your hard-working 7th house of relationships. Of course, the sun’s in Pisces as the month opens, but Mercury and Mars enter the sign, too. Mercury’s in Pisces as of the 8th and Mars joins on the 15th. Both of these planets join a long Uranus transit already in progress. So what does this mean?
One thing it means is that if your life is going to work at all, it’s going to have to work for all parties involved. The ongoing tug of war between Saturn in your own sign and all those visitors to Pisces emphasizes over and over again how important it is to have win/win solutions these days if you’re going to survive all the tumult.
Another way to think of it is to imagine that your ruler Mercury has entered Pisces for the period between the 8th and the 25th just so that you’ll have a chance to learn about your key relationships by studying the communication going on within them. If it’s as though your partner’s speaking French while your native language is English, you get a bit of a chance to learn what he or she is talking about. The point of all this activity, if you’re wondering, is to eventually make you very skilled in the handling of relationships. You won’t be entirely off the hook until Uranus leaves Pisces (starting in 2010), but thank goodness your sign is one of the best at gaining and putting knowledge to good use. Because you’re certainly get more than your share of chances to learn about the mysteries and intricacies of other people these days.
The second thing you may get a chance to learn about in March is the truth of the things that have been hidden. The end of March marks the annual emphasis on your solar 8th house of hidden truths, represented by the sign of Aries. The sun will move into that sign on the 20th; Mercury will join in on the 25th, and there’s a new moon in Aries on the 26th. Venus is in the sign all month (and will be in Aries for an unusually long time this year, due to retrogrades). The emphasis on Aries, a blunt and frank sign, gives you a chance to ask for and get real answers to any questions that have been troubling you, in relationships or otherwise.
Venus in the 8th house, by the way, can also pertain to intimacy and romance, as in flowers from a loved one, or nice romantic evening with dinner and drinks. In short, it’s worth buffing up those relationship skills, as the payoff can be quite handsome. Last but not least, Venus in the 8th can also relate to favorable settlement of a financial claim, as, for example, one resulting from an inheritance or insurance claim.
