Your horoscope for March 1 to 7, 2018

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      March opens on a full moon and will close on one too.

      Thursday’s full moon in Virgo highlights the contrast between the ideals and the shortfalls. The reality can get in the way of high expectations. If disappointment, disillusionment, or loss is what you face, go gentle on yourself. This, too, shall pass. Once the flaw, mistake, vulnerability, or necessity is exposed, the pathway to correction, healing, and improvement is cleared.

      The full moon can set a rescue mission into play. Drawing from Venus/Jupiter and Mercury/Jupiter, the full moon is laden with more than the average potential. It offers the opportunity to turn a minus into a plus, to top it up, to fill in a missing blank, or to move the conversation along. It can dish up a saving grace, a great bargain, a better solution, or a true potential rather than one that falls into the wishful-thinking category.

      Thursday/Friday puts it into full swing. Saturday’s stars are on a gearshift. If you have a choice, put it in park. Ease into it Sunday morning. Sun/Neptune and Mercury/Venus are on a soulful replenish-it roll. Spiritual, creative, romantic, or relaxed are an ideal way to start your day. As the day advances, Mars and Uranus add more spark.

      Monday/Tuesday, the moon in Scorpio keeps us involved and engaged. Just before Monday midnight, Mercury treks into Aries. Venus does the same on Tuesday afternoon. Both are good for a fresh energy infusion. Make the most of Wednesday’s opportunity upswing. Jupiter (in Scorpio) begins its annual four-month retrograde cycle on Thursday.

      March 20 - April 19

      If it isn’t this, it’s that. As soon as you think you have a handle on it, something else could unpin it. Thursday/Friday pulls you into more than you’d prefer. Something needs to be fixed; the improvement will prove worth the extra time or expense. Credit Mercury and Venus in Aries for helping you to be quicker on the uptake.

      April 20 - May 20

      Ask for what you need; you just might get it. Thursday’s full moon can give you a chance to make an important save or correction, to fill in what’s missing, to resume something important or dear to your heart. Do you feel you are falling short of your own expectations? If so, there’s no better time than right now to get on it.

      May 21 - June 21

      You could feel emotionally sensitive, overly drained, or swamped on Thursday/Friday. Perfect may not be in the mix. Sometimes good intentions are the best you can do. Don’t force what isn’t coming naturally. Saying more, doing more, or going at it harder won’t get you there any better. Through Monday, go with the flow and allow for things to play out on their own.

      June 21 - July 22

      Need a favour? Looking to capitalize on the moment or make a favourable impression? Opportunity is in the making Thursday/Friday. A simple request, well-timed question, or look-see could set big wheels in motion. Taking a test? Don’t second-guess yourself. Let your intuition provide the answer. Monday through Wednesday, dive into it fresh; get moving on it. Use your time wisely.

      July 22 - August 22

      Stick to simple and easy on Thursday/Friday, but also make sure the important items get checked off the list. While the full moon is going strong, you are wise to minimize expectations and to let things roll on their own. Now through mid–next week, watch for a chance to scoop a bargain or to correct, clean up, or clarify something important.

      August 22 - September 22

      Turning you into an open book, the full moon in Virgo can expose feelings and trigger pent-up emotions. You could feel at the brunt of their beck and call or that you’re the only one who can make the save or who is thinking straight. Pre- and postweekend, fast thinking could nail it/rescue it. Don’t second-guess your instincts or intuition.

      September 22 - October 23

      Check your blind spot. Pump up on vitamins. An extra step or measure taken could prove to be wisdom in the works. Thursday’s full moon could see you miss something, lose something, get lost, or lose track. On the other hand, you could find it. A minus becomes a plus. Something exposed, eliminated, or repaired sets you up for gain and improvement.

      October 23 - November 21

      Thursday’s full moon sets up an eventful few days. Business and pleasure mix well. Even if you need to put more into it, forgo one thing for another, or if expectations fall short, there is still plenty of benefit. On another note, a change of heart, change of mind, or a cancellation could be in the mix. Ultimately, it all works out for the best.

      November 21 - December 21

      You may have to put extra effort or work into it, make do, or put up with more than you’d prefer, but if you have to contend with limited options, appease yourself by staying focused on the eventual gain. Then again, if it isn’t a requirement and you can make it easy on yourself, go right ahead. Tuesday/Wednesday, the getting is good.

      December 21 - January 19

      A bargain or great find could have your name on it. Take on a trial run or try a creative solution. A test score or result sets the next play in motion. When in doubt, investigate further: ask more questions; get another opinion; check with a specialist. Sunday, feel it out. Monday to Wednesday keeps you on-target.

      January 20 - February 18

      Initially, it could be difficult to get a handle on it, but take your time and also allow time do its part. Thursday/Friday, you may need to eliminate something, tackle a correction, or put more into it. Trust yourself—you will come up with something better. Improvement is your immediate gain. Sunday through Wednesday keeps you going strong.

      February 18 - March 20

      Thursday’s full moon could dredge up something inconvenient, strike something off the list, increase a need, produce a shortfall, or require that you make a sacrifice. You may have to pick up another’s slack or help out more. It won’t take long for you to find your stride and/or hit pay-dirt. Sunday onward, you’re on a roll.
