The month of March starts off with Venus leaving Capricorn for Aquarius on March 1st, where she remains for most of the month. Venus represents love, relationships, money, our values and our aesthetics. In Capricorn, Venus is conservative and desires permanence. By contrast, in Aquarius, Venus is unconventional and somewhat spontaneous.

In general, Venus in Aquarius is friendly, social, a communicator, experimental, open-minded, and may prefer a group setting rather than a closer one-to-one situation. Aquarius is the humanitarian of the zodiac, aware of social situations and cares to improve upon them. In love and relationship, the Aquarian energy cannot be denied its independence and prefers a counterpart who is also independent, forward-thinking and a little quirky. Intellectual stimulation is a must if you're to snag and hold on to a Venus in Aquarius. In money matters, saving is not exactly a priority with Aquarius-Venus so, watch your wallets, especially if budget is tight.

Venus enters Aquarius on March 1 at 6:39 p.m. PST / 9:39 p.m. EST and will stay through March 26 (PST) / March 27 (EST). While in Aquarius, Venus will align with the following celestial bodies (all dates reflect North America Pacific time zone; allow +/-2 days for life span of influence):

  • March 10 ~ Venus sextile Jupiter. Happy, happy, joy, joy. Optimism. Giving in to desires. General good mood or hopeful attitude. Watch out for overdoing things, overestimation or overgenerosity. Tomorrow, Uranus returns to Aries where he remains for about seven years.
  • March 14 ~ Venus trine Saturn-rx. Saturn's influence seeking more security and/or commitment within our significant relationships -- marriage, intimate relationship, business partnership, etc.
  • March 26 ~ Venus conjunct Neptune. Compassion. Helping others. Random acts of kindness. Understanding. Remembering our dreams and hopes. Wanting to escape.

What significance do planets, signs, and houses have in astrology? Planets have the function, the job to do. The style/manner they will use get that job done is defined by the zodiac sign they occupy. Where in our life the job gets done is determined by the house the planet occupies/transits. So, when Mars (aggression) is in Aries (bold), he is more assertive than when he is in Cancer (sensitive). When traveling through the 10th house (professional life), he may bring his confidence and motivation in matters relating to our career. While in the 11th house (friendships), we may be more inclined to having our social calendar packed with activities. Having the foresight for what may be coming up or receiving confirmation on what may be happening now are ways astrology can be beneficial ... as above, so below.
