This month, we’re transitioning from reflective Pisces to go-getter Aries. If you’ve been feeling the winter blues, you’ll finally be able to shake them off come March 20, when the sun moves into Aries and spring officially begins for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere! Venus retrograde, starting on the 4th, supports the spring cleaning vibes. If there’s a room you’ve been meaning to beautify or a relationship that needs some work, the stars are aligned for some serious sprucing up.
A full moon in super-organised Virgo on the 12th gives you the motivation you need to kick anything that’s cluttering up your space to the curb, and a new moon in Aries on the 27th gives you a totally clean slate to work with. In the meantime, lucky Jupiter will be making some stressful alignments to other planets, so changes you implement now could get off to a rocky start. Still, hang in there! With so many planets in Aries this month, you can fight through any situation, no matter how tough.
