Love Monthly for Month Commencing: Friday 01 March 2024

   Aries Friday 01 March 2024  Mar 21 - Apr 19
Apart from the support for friendship and relationship building that has been growing ever since the Sun and Pluto returned to your relationship sector in January it is Venus, the planet of love who is creating a sense of anticipation or at least she will be by the end of the month. Ever since the Sun and Pluto returned to your friendship sector in January, every planet that has returned to your friendship sector has formed a friendly aspect to the South Node in your relationship sector or will do. This is something that the Sun, Mercury and Venus have already done and Mars will do during the early days of March

This has compounded the support for friendship and relationship building that with Pluto staying on, will continue for the rest of the year. This is something that will be especially strong when the Moon moves through your communication sector from 15th March to 17th March and through your relationship sector from 25th March to 27th March. It is while the Moon is in your relationship sector that it will clash with the Sun to create not just a Full Moon on 25th March, but a lunar eclipse. This will make the Full Moon that will always fall at some point during your birthday month and can put a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test, a lot more potent.

Fortunately, even though Mercury will return to Aries on 10th March for what should be a 14 to 15 day visit, a retrograde turn in early April will keep the planet of communication here for over two months, so will be there to ensure the communication lines are open. Meanwhile, it is Venus, the planet of love’s return to a nostalgic part of your chart that will create a mix of romantic nostalgia and anticipation that will be there for the rest of the month. This will see Venus return to take your heart on a nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane that will end with her return to Aries early next month.
 
   Taurus Friday 01 March 2024  Apr 20 - May 20
It was a Full Moon in your romantic sector late last month that gave the spirit of romance the kind of boost that you are still benefiting from as you move into the new month. This was a Full Moon that will always fall when the Sun is on the other side of the sky and six months after his last visit to your romantic sector, six months before his next and at a point in the year when there is rarely any planetary activity on the romantic front, this can help to break a romantic drought. However, as there are usually no planets to keep the spirit of romance alive, that job will usually fall to you. Fortunately, that is not the case this year.

Not only do you have the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment in your romantic sector until August, but throughout the month she is strongly aligned with Jupiter in Taurus and the dwarf planet Ceres in an adventurous part of your chart. This is helping to keep both the spirit of romance and adventure alive. This will get a further boost when the Moon comes full circle from last month’s Full Moon and moves through your romantic sector again from 22nd March to 25th March.

Meanwhile, while there is no planetary activity in your relationship sector, the Moon is helping to make up for that by returning twice this month. It was in the closing hours of February that the Moon returned to your relationship sector and will spend the first two days of the month ensuring you are emotionally and intuitively engaged. As the Moon moves through it is something that every four weeks will see it clash with the planets in Taurus, something that can give you a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. The Moon will do it again when it comes full circle and makes its second visit to your relationship sector for the month from 27th March to 30th March.
 
   Gemini Friday 01 March 2024  May 21 - Jun 21
With all the action on the romantic front this month, it is only fitting that in order to balance the scales the Moon will make two visits to your relationship sector. With no planetary activity in your relationship sector since the dwarf planet Ceres left last month, the Moon’s monthly visits are a valuable chance to check in and become more emotionally engaged. The Moon’s first visit from 3rd March to 5th March will be especially important and this could confirm a lot of things for you. While an ordinary monthly visit, this will be the Moon’s first visit since Ceres left, not only ending all planetary activity on the relationship front until later in the year but her last deep dive into your relationship needs and priorities for another four years.

The Moon, who will continue to return to your relationship sector every four weeks will come full circle on 30th March. This is where the Moon will end the month, once again offering a chance to check in and become more emotionally engaged. This makes the early and final days of the month the most important on the relationship front, while the love gods are smiling on matters of the heart throughout the month. This is thanks to the South Node’s position in your romantic sector and the support it is getting from the planets in an adventurous part of your chart.

It was late last month that Venus’ friendly aspect to the South Node gave her mission to bring the spirit of romance together a massive boost. With Venus, the planet of love in an adventurous part of your chart until 12th March and Mars, the planet of passion until 23rd March, this will create a potent mix of romance, passion and adventure in the first three weeks of the month. However, it is just after Mars leaves that the real magic could happen, thanks to the Moon’s return to your romantic sector from 25th March to 27th March. Not only will the Moon return as a Full Moon, the most romantically charged of any year, but with the extra potency of a lunar eclipse.
 
   Cancer Friday 01 March 2024  Jun 22 - Jul 22
Pluto, who had been in your relationship sector since 2008 left in January, which meant that as the Sun and the faster planets one by one returned to and eventually left, this should have left it empty. The Sun and Pluto both left in January and Mars, Venus and Mercury, the planets of passion, love and communication all left in February. These are the only planets that will usually return to your relationship sector each year or in Mars’ case every other year. There should be no more planetary activity on the relationship front nor the massive support that has built since then.

Instead, it was during Venus’ final days that the dwarf planet Ceres returned to begin her first deep dive into your relationship needs and priorities in four years. Normally here for three months, a retrograde turn will keep Ceres here until December and throughout that time she will work closely with the planets in your friendship sector and also the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships in your communication sector. Like Ceres, instead of passing through, a retrograde turn is keeping Juno in your communication sector until August and they will continue to work as a team until then.

That support between the communication and relationship gods and for friendship and relationship building will be there all month but will be especially potent when the Moon moves through your relationship sector from 5th March to 7th March and through your communication sector from 22nd March to 25th March. Meanwhile, as if to make up for the fact that there is no planetary activity in your romantic sector, the Moon will make two visits this month. Having returned in the closing hours of February, the Moon will make the first two days of the month some of the most romantically charged, before returning and doing it again from 27th March to 30th March.
 
   Leo Friday 01 March 2024  Jul 23 - Aug 22
There has been a lot of traffic through your relationship sector so far this year, starting with the Sun and Pluto’s return within hours of each other in January. Until then there had been no planetary activity here since last June, but that has not only changed but now that the focus is on your relationships it is going to stay there. The Sun, who was only here for a month has been and gone as has Mercury, the planet of communication. Yet while they have moved through, the Sun has left you with a clearer sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you while Mercury has left you with everything needed to keep the communication lines open.

Pluto, the planet of change and transformation is not only here but apart from retrograding back out for 11 weeks later in the year, he is settling into a 20 year journey that won’t see him eventually leave until 2044. However, while by the end of the month Pluto will be on his own and apart from the Moon’s monthly visits it will stay that way until later in the year, things haven’t got to that point yet. Instead, the month not only begins with Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion in your relationship sector but are separating from their own alignment and an alignment with Pluto.

Where the Sun left you with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, they are on a mission to make this a reality. Until she leaves on 12th March Venus will be working her magic while until he leaves on 23rd March, Mars will be focused on fighting to turn desires into reality. It is Mars’ departure that will leave Pluto on his own and it will stay that way until Venus returns again in December. It is two days after Mars leaves that the Moon will not only return to your communication sector on 25th March as a Full Moon, but as a lunar eclipse that can give everything building all month a voice. Meanwhile, with no planetary activity in your romantic sector, the Moon will be working to make 3rd March to 5th March and then again from 30th March and 31st March the most romantically charged days of the month.
 
   Virgo Friday 01 March 2024  Aug 23 - Sep 22
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of March in your relationship sector, the solar spotlight is always on your relationships at this time of year, though with a sense from the start that this was something to be taken seriously. It was while the Sun was here last year that Saturn returned to begin a three year relationship boot camp. It had been three decades since Saturn was last here and this can bring challenges, as the hard taskmaster of the cosmos makes you confront rather than avoid issues and demands that you show up. However, unlike his last visit from 1993 to 1996, when Saturn returned last year, it was to find Neptune, the planet of dreams here.

Not only has Neptune been here since 2012 and was therefore well established, but he is the ruler of your relationship sector and this is his home. Saturn is Neptune’s houseguest and has to abide by his rules and while a leopard doesn’t change his spots and Saturn is still the hard taskmaster of the cosmos, he is working in partnership with dreamy Neptune. These planets couldn’t be more different, but as they have been alone here for much of the last 12 months they have learnt to work together and by the time the Sun returned last month had given you the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes in order to turn dreams into reality.

Yet where Saturn and Neptune are focused on the big picture or the journey and will continue to until they both leave in early 2026, until leaving on 20th March the Sun is more focused on the here and now, as he shines a light on what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. Until he leaves on 10th March, Mercury will be doing what as the planet of communication he does best. The real magic will come when Venus, the planet of love returns on 12th March, followed by Mars on 23rd March. It is the warrior planet of the cosmos’ return that will help you fight for what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. Meanwhile, running as a subtle thread throughout the month is the spirit of romance and adventure.
 
   Libra Friday 01 March 2024  Sep 23 - Oct 23
March is a month that will begin with a strong focus on matters of the heart and all things romantic and will end with a strong focus on your relationships but with neither going off the boil at any point. Even when the month gets off to a romantically charged start, the North Node and planets in your relationship sector are still keeping the focus on your relationships, but not to that degree. The same will apply when the focus shifts to your relationships, with the spirit of romance never going off the boil while in the middle of the month, there will be an overlap between the two.

What gets the month off to such a romantically charged start is not just having Venus, Mars and Pluto in your romantic sector but with the planets of love, passion and change all having recently aligned. With Pluto here now for the next 20 years but Venus leaving on 12th March and Mars on 23rd March, these are some of the most romantically charged weeks of not just this month or year, but for a long time. Mars’ departure will leave Pluto on his own, but as the planet of change and transformation, he will keep the spirit of romance alive and ensure things don’t go backwards. However, this is when it becomes more about the journey.

It is while Venus and Mars are still in your romantic sector that things start to heat up on the relationship front, with Mercury returning to your relationship sector on 10th March. This will allow the planet of communication to get in first and start getting the communication lines open ahead of the Sun’s return on 20th March. This is the point in each year that the solar spotlight shifts onto your relationships and three days before Mars is due to leave your romantic sector, this is when the balance of power will be starting to shift to your relationships. However, there have been planets in your relationships from the start and Pluto will remain in your romantic sector.
 
   Scorpio Friday 01 March 2024  Oct 24 - Nov 21
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of March in your romantic sector, the solar spotlight is always on matters of the heart and all things romantic at this time of year. However, this year it will be after the Sun leaves that the real magic will be happening and the most romantically charged weeks of the year will be underway. With Neptune, the planet of dreams in your romantic sector since 2012 and Saturn having returned to begin a three year visit last year, your romantic sector is never empty and won’t be until they both leave in 2026. However, they are playing a long game and after working together for the last 12 months, the hard taskmaster of the cosmos and the planet of dreams have learnt to work together.

This is giving you the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes in order to turn romantic dreams into reality but without any urgency. Neptune and Saturn have been waiting for the Sun and the faster planets to get things moving. It was just a few days after the Sun returned last month that Mercury returned and until leaving on 10th March, as the planet of communication he will be working to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. It is on the same day that Mercury leaves that a New Moon will bring an opportunity for new beginnings.

The magic should start when Venus, the planet of love returns to your romantic sector on 12th March to begin what can be the most romantically charged weeks of any year. However, the real magic will set in when Mars returns on 23rd March, three days after the Sun leaves. This will bring the planets of love and passion together in your romantic sector for the first time in two years and for the first time in our lifetime when Saturn and Neptune have been both here at the same time, giving you the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes in order to turn dreams into reality. This might overshadow your relationships, where there is steady and stable growth and a lot of support from the communication gods but with less excitement.
 
   Sagittarius Friday 01 March 2024  Nov 22 - Dec 21
Different conditions make this a good month on both the romantic and relationship fronts, though, in the case of the latter, the real benefits won’t be felt for another few months. With no planetary activity in your relationship sector and just the Moon’s monthly visits offering a chance to check in, it is the planetary activity on the communication front that is an indirect help. Especially with Venus, the planet of love in your communication sector until 12th March and her mission to give your heart and your relationships a voice receiving some considerable support. Venus not only begins the month alongside Mars and Pluto but is separating from an alignment with both.

This has allowed Venus to piggyback off Mars’ war on communication barriers that will continue until he leaves on 23rd March while here during the early months of Pluto, the planet of change and transformation’s 20 year visit. It is the fact that Pluto is staying on that is set to have long term implications, for he will still be here when Jupiter returns to your relationship sector in May to begin your most important relationship year in over a decade. This is when the benefits of the focus on communication now will be felt. You will have a taste of that when the Moon moves through your relationship sector from 15th March to 17th March.

Meanwhile, things are set to start heating up on the romantic front, in a way that will progressively increase until peaking when Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion return next month. It starts with Mercury’s return on 10th March, with the Moon’s return from 11th March to 13th March bringing romantically charged lunar vibes into play just as he has returned to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. It is a week later that the Sun will return to your romantic sector on 20th March, something that at this time each year will always turn the solar spotlight onto matters of the heart and all things romantic.
 
   Capricorn Friday 01 March 2024  Dec 22 - Jan 19
It was late last month that a Full Moon in an adventurous part of your chart gave both the spirit of romance and adventure a boost, thanks to its friendly aspect to both planets in your romantic sector. It was the timing that made this especially significant, for it was while the Moon was there that Jupiter moved into his final three months in your romantic sector. With Jupiter not leaving until May and the Sun set to return before he leaves, what Jupiter began when he returned in May 2023 is moving towards its conclusion. It is the final three months of Jupiter’s 12 month visit that are set to be the luckiest for love.

You will have a chance to get a better feel for this when the Moon returns for its monthly visit to your romantic sector from 13th March to 15th March. As these romantically charged lunar vibes merge with Jupiter’s influence and especially now that he is in his final months, there could be an element of fate or luck involved, making it important to be spontaneous and willing to trust and follow your heart. Meanwhile, while there is no planetary activity in your relationship sector, the Moon’s monthly visit will make up for that and especially because of the timing.

There is no planetary activity in your relationship sector but there is plenty in your communication sector. The Sun will be here until 20th March, Mercury until 10th March, Venus from 12th March and Mars from 23rd March. Between them, the planets of communication, love and passion will be doing what they can to get the communication lines open, something that your relationships will benefit from. The Moon will be able to draw on this when it moves through your relationship sector from 17th March to 20th March and especially when it comes to Venus’ mission to give your heart and your relationships a voice.
 
   Aquarius Friday 01 March 2024  Jan 20 - Feb 18
While the Moon won’t return for its monthly visit to your romantic sector until after Venus, the planet of love leaves Aquarius on 12th March, having already moved through since her return last month there are high expectations from the past. There is currently no planetary activity in your romantic or relationship sectors to guide Venus as she works to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year, but on one front she has plenty of history to draw on and on the other front, she is privy to what lies ahead. This gives you the confidence to raise the bar on both fronts.

Where your heart is able to draw on history is on the relationship front, with Venus having spent an incredible four months in your relationship sector in 2023. Normally here for just 24 days, Venus’ longest visit in over 200 years had not only spanned from June to October, but it was during that time that the Sun, Mercury and even Mars moved through. This has left you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you that you can use to set your desires and expectations for the coming year. It is on the romantic front that you will have to trust your heart’s over the horizon radar and information downloaded from the Moon’s visit to your romantic sector last month.

This was the Moon’s only visit while Venus is in Aquarius, but as she tuned into those romantically charged lunar vibes, she was able to pick up on a sense of anticipation. It is in May that Jupiter will return to your romantic sector to begin your luckiest year for love in over a decade and this is helping to raise the bar on your romantic expectations for the coming year. The Moon will return to your romantic sector from 15th March to 17th March and to your relationship sector from 20th March to 22nd March. Venus will be gone by then, but this will be a chance to check in and confirm your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year.
 
   Pisces Friday 01 March 2024  Feb 19 - Mar 20
It is Venus, the planet of love that is making this a month of two halves and especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Venus begins the month in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, where she returned last month to take your heart on a nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane. While you have already moved into your birthday month and new solar year and are looking to the future, as you move into the new month your heart is still looking to the past and there will be a growing sense of romantic nostalgia. While this is holding the doors open to the past, this is also a chance for closure as you prepare for a chance for new beginnings and to look to the future when Venus returns to Pisces on 12th March.

This is an annual pattern, with Venus’ nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane always ending with her return to Pisces and the promise of new beginnings. This creates a month that begins with the focus on the past and ends with the focus on the future, but with a chance to first close old doors or dance with some old ghosts. Because the Moon won’t return for its monthly visit to your romantic sector until after Venus returns to Pisces, when it moves through from 17th March to 20th March this will add to the promise of new beginnings.

Especially as these romantically charged lunar vibes and Venus’ influence will be especially strong in the final days of your birthday month, which ends on 20th March. As you move into your new solar year and the journey this will take you on, this will put matters of the heart high on your priority list. It is a few days later that the Moon will not only return to your relationship sector from 22nd March to 25th March, but coming full circle from last month’s Full Moon could see a lot of things resolved or made more sense of. As was the case last month this will give you a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you while drawing on the growing support from the planets in your communication sector.
