Your horoscope for March 1 to 7, 2012
Starting with Mercury’s advance into hot-wired Aries on Friday, expect to feel an energy surge—and to see it, too. Mercury is especially triggering. It sharpens perception, wit, and tongue. This connect-the-dots influence quickens our uptake and reactionary impulses.
Whether instigated by inspiration or a more urgent need, a new push-comes-to-shove will speed matters along. Hitting the peak of Mars’ retrograde cycle, which lasts from January 23 to April 13, the sun’s opposition to Mars midday on Saturday illuminates the battle of wills. It polarizes self against self, circumstance, or another. It can bring awareness to something that should have been obvious, but which has escaped full recognition. While you may feel at a loss or that you have exhausted all possibilities, this aspect can present a solution or avenue you have not yet explored. Venus in opposition to reality-check Saturn early Sunday morning strips it down to the brass tacks. Once you’ve reconciled with yourself, the map becomes a straight-forward read.
Exchanging quick notes with asteroid Vesta and Uranus, Mercury is a busybody through Monday. Issues of security, safety, safeguarding, and intimacy turn up the heat. There are fences to build and fences to mend. Monday delivers a fresh-page thrust, perhaps surprisingly so. Increasing the premiums, Venus in Taurus (March 5 to April 3) offers more substance and sustenance to draw from.
March 19 - April 19
When the inspiration or impulse strikes, whoa! Dynamo doesn’t even begin to describe you as Mercury in Aries strikes flint with Uranus.

Racing too fast increases the potential for accidents.
