Whether you’re a small-business owner or have other career aspirations, insights into how the planets influence your work month can help you plan for maximum performance and project success.
Expect more hard work and problem solving as you start out the month. Focus on clearing up old projects. Determination and concentration will be required, especially until midmonth. Mars enters your sign on the 12th, and you’ll be energized to get things done! Keep your eyes open for new business opportunities or potential clients. Full Moon on the 27th could conclude an agreement.
You usually are quite happy being self-directed and productive on your own. But there are several times when it is more favorable to pitch your ideas or gain the cooperation for a project. This may take some time. Your job is to stick to a budget and avoid spontaneous spending—and by the way don’t believe everything you hear. Recheck paperwork; minor mistakes may occur.
It’s a good thing you adapt well to change, because you are likely to find your weekly routine is anything but. Fortunately, most of the shifts you make will be positive. Until the 17th be extra careful, because communications, travel and tech snafus may occur. Matters that have been held back about three weeks start moving forward around the third week.
Don’t expect to spend much time at home or make definite plans as March gets off to a running start. It can be a most productive time … if you have backup plans. Unanticipated mix-ups are not uncommon when Mercury remains retro for the first 17 days. If you’ve been thinking of making changes or starting a new project, a favorable time is the week of the Full Moon (25th-31st).
You realize how certain things have been holding you back and undertake the challenging work to remove those blockages. Focus on damage control the first half of the month. Note what you truly want to accomplish, then fixate on what you need and how new resources can help. The New Moon on the 11th is timely for that fresh start, and late month brings insight about moving forward as business expands.
A little frustration may come your way as best-laid plans bring unexpected reversals. Don’t depend on others: this is a “do-it-yourself” short-termed cycle until midmonth. Trust your hunches and sources. The good news is agreements can be reached with little opposition.
Use moderation as you work through problems the first workweek. Expect developments to go more smoothly the 11th through the 16th. You may need kid gloves to handle colleagues or clients who seem evasive or defensive. Your diplomatic demeanor will work wonders. Once Mercury speeds up midmonth, issues start to fall into place and others’ pending commitments can be concluded—though not without effort.
In this month of upheaval, you must summon self-reliance early on. You can’t avoid the hard work by putting it off in hopes of getting better results. Pack your briefcase and be ready to travel without interruptions from the 18th onward. Thinking about a new direction? This is a good time to determine what to keep and what to release.
Cmmunications problems may continue and you may find find callbacks elusive. Try not to do or say anything hasty. Use the first week to catch up on work, review your options or focus on research. Take nothing for granted. Arrange meetings or travel flater in the month. Your social life ramps up by the 20th.
Everyone is not as well organized and professionally motivated as you are, so don’t expect calls to be readily returned. Interference and delays are likely the first week. Be patient and agreements and feedback will come. Competition is strong. Work responsibility is less burdensome as the pace picks up from the 18th-26th. Despite complications, you accomplish your goals.
Refrain from spending, or better yet go over your accounts to make much-needed adjustments. Avoid giving misleading information. Keep a paper trail and hold off signing any long-term agreements. In spite of these restrictions, you can expect Mars to push you to take action (the week of the 11th) and move rapidly ahead. It’s imperative that you act on your networking skills.
Take risks and go for business opportunities that drift your way all month long. Five planets in your sign motivate you and bring new clients. Finances are in flux and take a positive turn by the second week. New Moon is always a prime time to make a fresh start and go in a different direction. Expect new projects or approaches to meet with success by the 27th. Establish $$ goals.
