Money matters have an upside and a downside this month, with challenges occurring around the time of the Moon in Aries, your solar eighth house, on the 3rd. Unexpected expenses are possible, as are possible difficulties surrounding a payment, insurance, inheritance, or investment. Don’t be tempted to risk funds despite what someone encourages you to do, and also be sure to check your (and the family’s) credit report if you haven’t done that yet this year. Take action when a desire for a change of scenery takes hold later this month. Vacation planning is one option, but you can satisfy the immediate need with a day at a nature preserve or a hike with a group of friends. Or free your mind by getting a jump-start on your spring flower and vegetable garden. Being outside will renew your mind, body, and soul. Neptune ushers in a new relationship era when it enters Pisces, your solar seventh house, on the 4th. This brief visit (through August 3) is a preview of what you can expect from this mystical planet when it returns to Pisces in the next year to continue its fourteen-year transit of this sign. You’ll have even greater empathy for those closest to you and they’ll inspire you to a new level of achievement. Be a little cautious, though; not everyone is as ethical as you are. The March 17 Moon in Libra, your other money house, provides all the incentive you need to take charge of your finances. Think ultra-thrifty, review (or establish) a detailed budget, and most important, get your partner (and possibly the family) involved in the process. A team effort has maximum potential for success.
