Sept 23 - Oct 22
Today's Horoscope This week This month
Libra horoscope for March 2023
While on several fronts it might appear to be business as usual, there is a massive amount of change this month but with nine planets on the move, a lot of new partnerships are forming and there could many times when you might find yourself saying 'I didn't see that coming'. One of those partnerships that will form in a way that might take you by surprise is on the income, work and career fronts. While the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of March in your work sector and there has been ongoing support from and for the South Node in your income sector, there has been no planetary activity in your career sector since last July and the Sun is still over three months away.
At the same time, as it is not until after the Sun leaves your career sector on 21st March that work and job matters get an unexpected boost for this time of year, the momentum there won't die down. Instead, Saturn and Mars, the planets that will not only drive this new professional wave but whose friendly aspect later in the month will forge a new bond between job and career matters will start the month with a very different focus. Instead, the month begins with Saturn in the final days of a nearly three year visit to a playful and creative part of your chart and Mars in the final weeks of his longest visit to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery in eight decades.
Neither could be less interested in what is happening professionally. However, that will start to change when Saturn leaves and returns to your work sector on 8th March, where he will spend the next three years with Neptune, giving you the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes in order to turn professional dreams into reality. Mars will hold out for longer, finally leaving an adventurous part of your chart and returning to your career sector on 25th March. This is the start of an increasingly strong bond between Saturn and Neptune in your work sector and a parade of planets that will continue to move through your career sector until August. Meanwhile, starting the month with Venus and Jupiter, the planets of love and luck aligned in your relationship sector is just a small taste of things to come.
Love & RomanceSaturn and Jupiter are not only two of the most powerful planets in the solar system but the ones that have a more noticeable impact both personally and on the year itself and this is a significant month for both. For Saturn, this is the end of an era as a nearly three year visit to your romantic sector ends on 8th March. Saturn is the hard taskmaster of the cosmos and while things might not have gone smoothly over the last three years, this leaves you with a solid and authentic starting point, ready for an exciting twist ahead. The month also starts with Mercury in your romantic sector and until leaving on 3rd March he will be working to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page.
However, Saturn's departure from your romantic sector on 8th March will leave it empty for the first time since 2020, with the Moon finding no planets here when it moves through from 18th March to 20th March. These romantically charged lunar vibes will also not have to bend to Saturn's rules, giving them free rein. However, it is just four days after the Moon leaves that Pluto, the planet of change and revolution will return for the first time in our lifetime and from the start he will be ready to change things up while building on from the three years of hard work Saturn has already invested. Yet a big month on the romantic front is also a big month on the relationship front.
The month doesn't just begin with Venus and Jupiter in your relationship sector but with the planets of love and luck aligned on 1st/2nd March. While Venus and Jupiter will align somewhere once a year, this is the first time in over a decade that they have aligned here, getting the month off to a good start. It is 10 days later that the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships will leave, but not before helping to capture the magic and turn it into resolutions. Venus will leave on 17th March, two days before Mercury returns on 19th March to do what as the planet of communication he does best. Venus will also have been and gone before the Sun returns to put the solar spotlight on your relationships on 21st March, though not before working her magic. This means you will be more than ready for the New Moon on 22nd March.
Business & CareerMarch was always going to be a month of huge change, with several planetary shifts that are usually spaced years apart all happening within the space of just a few short weeks. For you, a lot of that change is going to be seen on the professional front and one of those shifts is something not seen in generations, with the other more ordinary event benefiting from the first. Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of March in your work sector the solar spotlight is always on your work situation and job matters at this time of year. Venus has already been and gone and having spent time with dreamy Neptune here last month, you have had a chance to bank your dreams, desires and expectations.
Mercury will move through from 3rd March to 19th March, giving you the intellectually savvy and articulate edge needed to work smarter, get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. By the time the Sun leaves on 21st March you should be at the point in each year when it then becomes more about staying on track with Neptune, here since 2012 quietly keeping the wheels turning. Instead, Saturn's return on 8th March will change everything. Here now for the next three years, Saturn returns with the power to move mountains if you have to and teaming up with Neptune here for the first time in our lifetime, that includes the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to turn dreams into reality.
This in turn puts a whole new significance on Mars' return to your career sector on 25th March and his friendly aspect to Saturn just days after returning. Held back by a retrograde phase, Mars is ready to make up for lost time and will spend the next two months fuelling your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit, just as you have gained the power to move mountains on the job front. This will see the coming months completely reshape what's possible professionally. You will have a better read on this when the Moon moves through your work sector from 20th March to 22nd March and when it moves through your career sector from 28th March to 31st March, just days after Mars' return.
MoneyWhile to start with it is business as usual on both sides of the financial fence, as the month progresses the conditions will improve for both. As the lunar nodes, in your two money houses from January 2020 to July 2023 are constantly policing a balance between money coming in and money going out, the fact that the rising tide is lifting the boats on both sides of the financial fence will ensure that while there is growth on both sides the right balance is maintained. It is the other side of the financial fence that is already gaining growing support but as the South Node is on its own in your income sector without any planetary activity, this is keeping things balanced.
The North Node, on the other side of the financial fence in your financial sector is not on his own, with Uranus keeping you mentally engaged and on track. Last month has already seen first Venus and then the Sun form a friendly aspect to the South Node during their early days in your work sector. This is something Mercury that will do when he returns on 3rd March and Saturn on 8th March. This is something that the Moon will be keen to capitalise on when it moves through your income sector from 11th March to 13th March, something that can sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger.
While Mercury will leave on 19th March the Sun on 21st March, with Saturn here for the next three years that will support not only continue but increase when Mars returns to your career sector on 25th March. By the end of the month, support will be locked in across the income, work and career fronts. Meanwhile, while this growth could upset the fine balance between both sides of the financial fence, helping to maintain that balance will be Venus, the planet of money's return to your financial sector on 17th March. Returning a month ahead of the Sun and two months earlier than last year, Venus returns to fuel your financial confidence, update your financial desires and expectations and work to turn those desires into reality. The Moon will give you a read on this when it moves through from 24th March to 26th March.
