The first few days will be swimming in a Neptunian haze with the Sun, Neptune, Mercury and Venus all in this self-protective, hyper-sensitive though visionary sign. Energy may be low but sympathy levels should be high. Daydreaming will be a pleasant diversion.
Then Mercury and Venus on the 6th zip into fiery Aries for a minor change of mood. Upfront, directly outspoken, adventurous and go-ahead, Aries often acts first and thinks second but is rarely boring and usually on the ball.
The Pisces Sun sails along until the 20th, pulled together by Pluto and then morale-boosted by Jupiter before mid-month, so there should be good news.
From the 17th Mars moves into Capricorn for a fractious few weeks till mid-May as it will bounce off the Sun, then Saturn, and Pluto. Often it casts its shadow before it, in terms of accidents and aggravations so there may be more disasters than usual.
In the final ten days the Aries Sun will set a faster pace as it promotes initiative, and will be keen to get new projects started. Though it will be stop-go as it squares Mars and Saturn before March closes and will require perseverance. Mercury going retrograde on the 23rd for three weeks also won’t help, as it brings the usual hitches and glitches especially in communication.
On the 31st Venus moves into indulgent Taurus to compensate for any delays.

Jupiter in Scorpio from October 11 2017 till early November 2018 – could be a money-magnet, usually good for business and joint finances, or attracting bonuses. Interest in secrets and what lies beyond reality in the hidden realms of the paranormal. Jupiter shining a light and demanding justice for sexual scandals.
Saturn: In Sagittarius from September 19th 2015 till late December 2017 – serious about knowledge, education, legal matters, religion. Defensive about criticism, self-righteous. Into Capricorn from December 20th till 2020/21 – usually coincides with a time of some financial shortages and the need to push ambitions ahead with persistence.
Uranus: In Aries from 1 March 2011 till May 2018 – hyper-active, energetic, determined to make new starts even if it means upsetting people, go ahead. From May 2018 into Taurus for seven years – changing attitudes to handling of money, possessions and resources especially in agriculture and our attitude to nature.
Neptune: In Pisces from February 2012 for thirteen years – religious, spiritual, has resonances with Muslim history, can be fanatical or poetic.
Pluto: In Capricorn for sixteen years from Nov 2008 till 2024 = complete deconstruction and reconstruction of global economic and commercial structures and systems, as well as major changes in way in which governments work. In past times of Pluto in Capricorn (approximately every 250 years) there was territorial domination on a grand scale by charismatic leaders and ultimately a time of culture, learning, justice and prosperity.
