Love is still very complicated. The two love planets in your chart, Venus (the generic love planet) and Jupiter (your actual one) are both retrograde. Venus has been retrograde since March 4, while Jupiter went into retrograde motion on February 6. Jupiter has also been receiving stressful aspect since March 13. So if love seems like it’s going backwards, it is quite understandable. Try not to make matters worse than they need to be. Be more patient. Don’t add to the negativity. Don’t try to force things. Focus on the possible, not the impossible. Venus goes forward again on the 15th and that should improve things, and on the 19th the Sun moves away from this stressful alignment to Jupiter, which should further help. But love needs time and patience.

Your 11th house became strong on March 20th and remains very strong until the 19th. So this is a month for friendships and group activities – much more so than for romance. It is a month where fondest hopes and wishes come true. It is a month where you increase your technological prowess, your scientific and astrological knowledge. (It is a good period for having your full, personal horoscope done.)

Finance is still not a big issue. Generally this is good; it indicates someone who takes earnings for granted, someone who doesn’t worry much about money. It shows contentment with things as they are. But, if problems arise, you need to pay more attention – though you don’t feel like it. Earnings are strongest on the days mentioned above. Earning power also tends to be strong from the 1st to the 11th and from the 26th onwards – as the Moon waxes. The 15th is an exceptionally strong financial day – the aspects are good and the Moon is closest to Earth.

Health is good this month. Your energy level is high and you can achieve whatever you set your mind to. Mars moves into your sign on the 21st, boosting the energy even more. With Mars, sometimes the problem is that there is too much of a good thing. On the one hand there is more energy and zeal. You get things done quickly. You excel in sports and exercise. But Mars can make you impatient and in too much of rush, which can lead to accident or injury. Under the influence of Mars a person can come across as ‘too sharp’ – too biting – even though they don’t intend it. Be careful here. Soften the voice tones. Avoid conflict and temper tantrums.
