Venus enters Taurus on Tuesday, March 17, a position favorable for money and possessions. You’re likely to earn money through legacies, partnerships, or marriage; and there will be good fortune in business and trading, generally, through Thursday, March 19. On Friday, March 20, the same date as the vernal equinox — the moon turns new and moves in front of the sun to create a solar eclipse. This solar eclipse in Pisces foreshadows severe weather and startling world news.

Pisces (February 19–March 20)

Strengthen your personal vitality this week and tend to your general health. Avoid swimming or otherwise interacting with water during Friday’s eclipse in Pisces. If you need to swim or go boating, do so in a safe place and take proper precautions to ensure safety.

Aries (March 21–April 19)

The eclipse on Friday represents matters that are hidden, cryptic, and impossible to act on. Guilty secrets and hidden vices will be exposed — but don’t allow shame or fear of future consequences to undo you.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

You will hear of news regarding a large group of people or membership in some sort of society or organization. This news is likely to create distress, so be careful of how you conduct yourself publicly this week. Don’t become agitated when faced with a group’s decision; receive news gracefully and retain your dignity.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

Your work will be affected by the eclipse on Friday, March 20, and there may be changes to the status quo. Complete all tasks diligently this week and follow through with all projects for which you are responsible. Do not take any shortcuts and put forth due effort. Please your superiors this week to maintain a peaceful work environment.

Cancer (June 21–July 22)

Strange and mystifying things will happen to you this week that may change the way you see the world. It’s quite possible that your long-held views and opinions will be challenged during the solar eclipse on Friday; your entire outlook may shift. Be open to new ways of thinking and embrace alternative practices.

Leo (July 23–August 22)

Fulfill financial obligations, such as debts, taxes, loans, losses, or money owed to others. You should also avoid financial gambles or risky activities that could induce fear, anxiety, or monetary loss.

Virgo (August 23–September 22)

This eclipse foretells double-dealing, diplomatic blunders, the breaking of promises, and general disagreement. Tread lightly around your spouse or business partner during Friday’s eclipse to avoid altercations.

Libra (September 23–October 22)

The eclipse on Friday will affect domestic issues generally: Don’t buy home appliances to ease your day-to-day chores, and because pets and small animals may experience problems, make sure that yours are feeling well. Unhelpful conditions will soon change for you, so proceed with optimism.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21)

Beware of promiscuity, overindulgence, and possible scandals. Approach acts of pleasure and shopping for the purpose of  enjoyment with restraint. Luxurious things purchased this week may cause trouble later on. Also avoid all forms of betting on sport, lotteries, and gambling, particularly on Friday.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)

An encounter you have this week will be the foundation and roots of your existence. Parents in general and the psychological parental influence are in focus. You may embrace a strong concern with “roots,” tradition, and history to finally come to terms with early childhood trauma that may have subconsciously shaped your emotional experience of life.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19)

The eclipse on Friday will affect your ability to express yourself and communicate with others: It will create difficulties in contracts and written deeds. In relationships, the eclipse suggests communication problems or emotional incompatibility. You may receive news from gossips and irritating visitors, so beware of busybodies. Be careful and sensitive when sharing information through communication networks, phone calls, and emails.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18)

Resources, material comforts, earnings, and all issues concerning wealth or of a financial nature will be affected by Friday’s eclipse. Beware of questionable financial agreements: This transit suggests a loss for you and a gain for other parties. This is equally true in questions relating to gambling, stocks, and shares.
