Your Weekly Horoscope for March 6–12: Dare to Be Different

March 6, 2022

Major planetary shifts are coming this week. Starting as soon as Sunday, March 6, Mercury in Aquarius squares the north node retrograde in Taurus, posing tension between the mental mad genius and the destined comfort zone. The square is purposeful, as it encourages us to consider the future of our security and values. So, there may need to be a different view, style of communication, or mental perception of what could be! If it is difficult to talk about your dreams of destiny, write about it instead.

On the same day, Mars conjuncts Venus in Aquarius at an auspicious 0 degrees! When the Lover planets come together to make magic, anything is possible while thinking ahead, thanks to futuristic Aquarius. Since Aquarius is a fixed air sign, the energy is more platonic than romantic. Express your love for dear friends and social groups. The conjunction could even bring out everyone’s freakier side.

Later in the week, there will be a first quarter moon in Gemini on Thursday, March 10. Mercurial Luna wonders, “What is next?” First-quarter moons are the perfect time to lay down the foundation of a new project or endeavor. However, this lunation may refer to a few different paths since Gemini’s twin energy could lead to a divergence in curiosities. So, use the lunation to explore and talk about what opportunities are interesting to you!

Mars rejoices with the Maverick

Mars leaves its exaltation in Capricorn for the airy Aquarius on Sunday, March 6. Now in Aquarius, Mars is reporting to both Saturn and Uranus. Saturn can give Mars the discipline it needs to go through with its ambitions, as wild child Uranus encourages Mars to consider the impossible. 

While acting with Aquarius energy in mind, Mars may take the unconventional route. It could be the perfect time to consider an unlikely game plan or course of action, as the atypical methods could be incredibly rewarding! Aggression is not an air-ruled Martian prerogative. Mars may be more level-headed in Aquarius, inferring that moments of anger may not be prioritized. There are simply better things for Mars in Aquarius to worry about. However, if pushed to the absolute limit, Mars in Aquarius may lash out in an unexpected rage. Lastly, sexual energy cools, as Mars in Aquarius is not overwhelmingly passionate. When the mood does feel right, the maverick mentality will explore sexual quirks, kinks, and fantasies!

Venus entertains the Atypical

Lovely Venus finally kicks the Sea-Goat to the curb to embrace the Water-Bearer! Venus now reports to Saturn and Uranus, bridging the gap between tradition and modernity. 

Love and romance are about to take on a platonic tone now that Venus is in Aquarius. Venus in Aquarius may prioritize the foundation of friendship within connections, bringing lovers back to the basics to affirm the solidity of their relationship. It also looks towards the future, encourages singles and couples to consider how unique their love lives could be! Beauty becomes wholly individualistic as Venus in Aquarius champions exceptional style over commonplace trends. Finally, money takes on a technical tone. Cryptocurrency or making money through virtual measures could be a recurring theme during Venus in Aquarius. Venus could even be inspired to make its money unconventionally too!

Mercury enters the Spirit Realm

Mercury falls down the rabbit hole when entering Pisces on Wednesday, March 9. Now reporting to Jupiter and Neptune, Mercury’s mind borders on mysticism. 

Realism is replaced with idealism, fact is replaced by fantasy. Mercury in Pisces can have an elusive way of thinking as mental processing becomes muddled with boundlessness. Daydreams may fill Mercury’s head, making it somewhat difficult for Mercury to stay on track. Mercury in Pisces can have a poetic communicative style, giving its artistic tone an underlying current of emotional fluidity. Poetry, music, storytelling, and expressing your love seemingly slips from Mercury’s lips. However, be mindful as details could become lost in a moment of confusion or disillusionment.
