Avoid travel if you can this month. Difficult planetary alignments can trigger delays, cancellations, and lost luggage, as can Mercury, which turns retrograde in Aries, your solar ninth house, on the 30th. It’s also possible you’ll be faced with a mechanical problem this month, either a vehicle or appliance. So don’t go far from home unless you’re positive your car is in top shape. A new era begins on the 11th, when Uranus enters your solar ninth house. Although this influence also promotes travel, Uranus here will foster independence and curiosity. Knowledge will be a theme for the next eight years, and you’ll be increasingly interested in learning all you can. This could prompt you to return to school to train for a new career or to maximize your success potential in your current one. You’ll cherish time with loved ones this month as Venus advances in Aquarius, your solar seventh house, through the 26th. More than that, you’ll find people receptive to you and your ideas and willing to grant almost any favor. Social events, particularly with neighbors, can widen your circle of influence, and the 8th could bring good news from a distance. Finances are accented by the March 4 Moon in Pisces and the March 19 Moon in Virgo, your money signs. Either one or both could benefit the family bank account, but you’ll be tempted to splurge with Mars in Pisces all month. Save a lot and indulge yourself a little.
