Mercury speeds into Aries on Monday, March 30, bringing quick wit and a sharp tongue. Minds are fertile and inventive — but insensitivity is a danger.

When Mars joins Venus in Taurus on Tuesday, March 31, the heavens favor plans and ideas put into practical execution.

The “blood moon” lunar eclipse in Libra on Saturday, April 4, is very powerful and will affect many planets. Lunar eclipses are robust full moons that change the course of fate. Stay calm as you make adjustments.

Aries (March 21–April 19)

This transit incites actions to gain money and possessions. You will become involved in business affairs and can make financial gains through your work. But don’t let your material desires bring you difficulty.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

The planets initiate a period of greater self-assertion and physical activity. This energy can manifest itself in work, sports, exercise, or restlessness — if it is not well directed. Be careful not to expose yourself to physical danger. You will be more competitive during this transit and may improve your health and vitality through exercise.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

You will become involved in behind-the-scenes activity involving private affairs and psychological concerns. Investigations may be carried on in secret in order to avoid confrontation and opposition. You could become implicated in secret intrigues or have secret enemies. This transit triggers subconscious desires that could cause you to act in peculiar or self-destructive ways. A secret sexual involvement may also occur.

Cancer (June 21–July 22)

This transit brings action in pursuit of personal goals connected with friends, groups, and organizations. You may be motivated to take an active leadership role and associate with friends who will spur activity. Be careful not to encourage each other to become involved in risky or dangerous enterprises.

Leo (July 23–August 22)

The skies deliver aggressive ambition to further your career. Active involvement in politics, corporate business, or other activities in pursuit of status and personal authority will be successful. However, you may become involved in professional or political power struggles. Authoritarian attitudes could make problems.

Virgo (August 23–September 22)

Now, you want to travel, have an adventure, or pursue goals related to education, philosophy, or religion. There is danger of becoming a fanatic in the promotion of your convictions, so avoid arguments over personal beliefs.

Libra (September 23–October 22)

In some manner, you’re likely to be affected by death or the affairs of the dead. This position could indicate gain through inheritance, insurance, tax refunds, gifts, grants, or corporate investments. You may also become acquainted with the occult. This is not a favorable time to expose yourself to dangerous situations or violence.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21)

This transit marks a period of great activity in the public sphere or in business or professional partnerships. A close relationship with a dynamic person may prod you into action. There could be competition or aggression in partnership and marital relationships. Do not engage disagreements — which, in extreme cases, could bring about open enmity and even physical confrontation.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)

The planets point to physical activity involved in work, service, and health. Take care to avoid occupational hazards during this transit, especially if you use tools, machinery, or dangerous chemicals. You have the energy to be effective, accomplishing more than would ordinarily be the case. (This is especially true for jobs that require physical exertion.)

Capricorn (December 22–January 19)

You will aggressively pursue pleasure, romance, and creative self-expression. You may also become involved in physical sports or activities requiring muscular exertion. This transit intensifies the sex drive, resulting in serious sexual involvements — but beware of jealousy. (And there could also be a lack of sensitivity and refinement in sexual pursuits.) Loud, uncouth horseplay during parties or at social affairs is also not uncommon.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18)

The stars could stir up deep memories relating to your upbringing, which could be upsetting. On the other hand, you may have the motivation and energy to make necessary improvements in the domestic area. This could amount to a good house-cleaning or a home-improvement project. Be careful not to become injured in the home or involved in domestic quarrels and conflicts. There is the danger of fire and/or broken appliances. You may also have to deal with aggressive or objectionable people who come into your home.

Pisces (February 19–March 20)

You are involved in the energetic pursuit of knowledge and practical information; you become involved in heated discussions and debates. There’s likely to be much coming and going, particularly by car. Beware of reckless driving, because you’re likely to receive a traffic summons if you are careless.
